Meanwhile... Back to Yumi! And... she's not doing so hot. Blasting spiders with your soul energy takes a lot out of ya, you know. ;P

Oh, and hey! The Art Page has been updated again! Thank you so much you guys for all your wonderful gifts, fan art, and birthday wishes! I feel so loved. ;u;

- Oh yeah~! And thanks! Nephi has the upper hand in this battle... er, two upper hands, actually. Ahahaha, having an extra pair of arms must be quite... 'handy'. eve

SolaratheHedgehog - I know how ya feel! First time for me drawing somebody hitting somebody else. So sad it had to be Yumi. TAT

Jazeki - Me too. :3

Kinishima - Haha, thanks! Triple thanks! ;D I have such trouble with transitions, so I'm happy you said that! >w<

myscreame - Aww, you! You flatter me so! Thank you, thank you. :)
Yeah, Yumi's guns, (she has two, but it's rare for her to use both.) are powered by her soul, so shooting them is quite strenuous. (she'd pass out or worse if she didn't know how to fire them correctly, haha.) All this and Yumi's past will be explained in detail next chapter but since it'll be a while before we get there, I like to fill you guys in as we go. :)
Haha, I know! I thought about making it a punch, but Nephi's a classy spider lady! No punching from her.
Ah! Yes! Those are actually her jorogumo eyes you see. She has eight total, just like a normal spider, but two are like a human's. But you'll noticed when she's talking to Hotaru in Chapter 1 on page 25, she has her jorogumo eyes closed to make herself appear more human and ladylike. ;D I started out with her jorogumo eyes glowing, but something happened and I don't color them in anymore. I really should brighten them up so you can see them better.

Ms_Mayhem - Yeah, Yumi's the best in battle! But her stamina and endurance is pretty low. :P Where's Hotaru when you need him?!

MegamanZDevil - Ahahahaha, OH YOU! *hugs*

gizumimipichu - Haha, I know, right? Hotaru sure takes his time! XD

HaKu10 - Haha, I know! You'd think after he betrayed her once, she wouldn't trust him like this again. Let's hope her trust in him is not misplaced!
And hey! No problem! I'm pretty busy too, so don't worry about it.

ChiakiAida - Thank you! I think I'll have to change one of the genres this comic is in to "action," since there is a lot more to come in this comic. :)
Yes, Yumi is very powerful but she has her limits like all humans do. Haha, that's a good guess you made! But we'll have to wait and see, right?
Glad you like to see my art! Even when it's super messy and sketchy. <3
Yeah, I guess I should have put "meanwhile" or maybe some space panels but I like to think of this as a cartoon more than a comic, so I usually leave that stuff out. >w<

Everlong - Nah, Nephi has hundreds of spider kids, (Haha, I bet she can't tell them apart,) so she's not too attached to any of them. She used them to tire Yumi out for her so that it would be easier to take Yumi out. What a horrible mother! TAT

Nym.Katharina - Thank you very much! I put extra time into detailing the second panel, so I'm very happy it shows. Thank you, thank you!

Ponyta - Thanks! <3

ingridochoa - Oh gosh! Thank you~!!! I really love your comic, too!

Addict - Er, um, it depends on the page. This one took me about 7 hours. (Not all at once, of course!) Most take an average of 5 or 6. You can find out more information in the top menu on the "About" page. ^v^

YUMI NO! :O
Jazeki July 25th, 2010, 1:04 pm
I kinda like Yumi being called Dumpling.
Kinshima July 25th, 2010, 2:21 pm
I laughed at your reply to MegamanZDevil :p 'er, two upper hands, actually' XD You're really good at drawing poses and I liked the transition between both scenes :3

Can't win? I see more dead spider babies than alive, miss Nephi.
And soul powered gun? NICE DUDE. That's super cool. Did i mention the gun design is totally awesome? it looks comfortable to handle and easy to shoot! amazing.
And I also like that you didnt had nephi just simply punch her, It's not very lady like, and Nephi is just such a pleasant Jorogumo.
Also, I just noticed something, the lines on her face, are they supposed to substitute the spider's usual eight eyes (like if she is closing the rest of her eyes or something), or are they just marks? because if they did, that would be so cool!

Nuuuuu!
Must.Fight.HARDER!

Hotaru get in there man!
Lol, I could just imagine him jumping out just like, 'Surprise!' :D

When's Hotaru when you need him?

Hang in there Yumi! :)
HaKu10 July 26th, 2010, 2:29 am
GAH!!! YUMI!!! Where's Hotaru when you need him?! Hotaru! XD

Oh, btw, Sal-chan, I'll write you back soon, okay? Sorry, I've been busy! TT_TT

Dun dun dun duuuuuuun.And wow so much action here.I like especially the second panel.And 2xwow .yumi is very powerfull but I think she have her limits too tough.
buuut.Who know maybe right when the jorogumo will want to strike the last attack , our STEVE will arrive ~*giggle* or.um wait. will this really happen?
And yay~ you updated your art page with more of your art. ;w; yayay~ *fire in eyes* I will examine every point o ho ho ho.
Umm... I just saw it now but... it shouldn't be some thing like (at the beggining of the page) "meanwhile..." or some little space panels
? oh well...umm I don't really know, I just wonder.
Everlong July 26th, 2010, 8:43 am
Panel 6 = Bitch slap XD

And I hope she doesn't get too attached to all her children :/ Quite a few of them seem to be sleeping/dead on the floor D:
Nym.Katharina July 26th, 2010, 7:44 pm
I really like the detail in the second panel of her gasping. The gun is pretty wicked too. Good detail in all the pages!
Ponyta July 27th, 2010, 8:10 am

ingridochoa July 27th, 2010, 11:00 am

FOOD PET NAMES I love how Nephi has food pet names for everyone. examples: pudding and dumpling
^_^ it really adds to her character.
