Hey it’s Hitomi! HAHA, you didn’t think the THIRD wildcard would stay out of this, did you? Those of you who were sick of the mental attacks, I think from here on out it’s going to be corporeal action until the end.
Hitomi! Kick that trauma demon’s ass!
Woohoo! Ass kickin’!
Best. Wildcard. Ever.
Now.. she scares me. O.o
*grin* Last panel: I think that’s the first time I’ve ever seen *that* being a /positive/ thing, and being said with that kind of confident smirk. 😀
new binge reader here, have been waiting to hit current time to comment. We met on the boat at that christmas party and talked about your writing passion. I kept the card you gave me and finally started reading from the beginning about mid jan. i’m hooked. Dude DD is very entertaining and well written. Love it.
Hahahahaha excellent. You are the first person I’ve gotten to do that that I’ve met in person, awesome. Hope I can keep you reading from here on out.
Tell everybody else to read it too!
I’m not completely convinced. Even if she had lived all her life up to the point in a time bubble there still ought to be insecurities and conflicts in her life to exploit; troubles with her parents maybe? or with lack of freedom, or fear of the life outside the bubble, or the thought that conditions that would have made her parents happier would have resulted in her not being born, among others.
Just because she SAYS that it’s the sheltered life alone doesn’t mean it IS just the sheltered life.
Keep in mind, this is Hitomi. She has an awesome family, is having the best day of her life, and is naturally an upbeat, joyous person. Those are all in addition to having lived a sheltered life. One would be fierce enough a demon’s bane. All of them together are what make Hitomi so immune to them.
I think the key is that none of her experiences have been at a high enough level of stressful to latch on to. I don’t think she’s even committed any severe social faux pas to feel regret about. Sure, a sheltered person could have felt resentment over experiences not had, or frustration over goals not achieved, or any number of other possible hooks for the demon to seize upon, but Hitomi just hasn’t yet.
Maybe somewhere out there, there is a demon that can beat you up with the boredom you have experienced in your life. That, Hitomi would be vulnerable to.
But she’s never had anyone seriously ripping on her. She’s a smart and beloved kid who was raised in a nurturing environment. She must have read novels where people are mean to each other, but for her that’s an abstract idea, not something she has ever experienced.
Oh yeah I’m buying this twist. This demon has no levers on her, *and* she’s feeling pretty confident. (She just shattered what the demon was doing to her friends, which will only make her more confident!)
She might not be immune to the “erasing” demon who went after Mori, she might not be immune to Mr. I (i.e. an incubus using her innate lusts against her), but I’m totally on board with her being immune to the demon of self-doubt.
P.S. Hitomi, after you blow that demon up, blow it up a second time for me.
Now why am I picturing her sounding like Twilight Sparkle?
And now I’ve picked that up. Great job. XD
The last two panels = pure joy which made me laugh for a solid minute.
…Please don’t make anything horrible happen to Hitomi. D:
Please, I’m beginning to like her too much, let her stay the same, please…
Now that the page is in color, I noticed that Hitomi is holding an antique magician’s wand.
I like the colors!
Too pure to corrupt/mind rape. Not one of the more common “superpowers”.
Heh! Came back for a nice twist and newest page after a week of absence. Good one! 🙂
I just want to say that this is the sort of clever sideways thinking that keeps me reading this comic. This world is authentically yours and doesn’t just follow rules laid out by someone else.
I love analyzing and absorbing new concepts?/interactions?/mechanics? and that’s something I don’t find often enough in this age of reboots and innovations.
Aww, thanks! I love it when people say I’m special! I’ll try to keep you reading!
Hahaha, damn. There’s a Badass Boast you don’t see very often.
