Keiko Tachibana is an average High school girl.

Scratch that. She's a self proclaimed "Slighty above average" High school girl who has dedicated herself to being only moderately better than the social norm. However one day she gets a visit from someone Way over the top.

An inter dimensional cutie whom goes by the name Llla-Elac Ngtholi Cllegogg, also known as "Laila" to humans. She has come to destroy the sanity, and lives of everyone at Daisuke Ryuzaki high school.

However, poor Keiko seems to be the only one at school whom has noticed this terrifying beast, and to make matters worse, she's staying at her house!!

Will Keiko be driven insane by the ramblings of this terrible alien and her Slightly above average lifestyle tossed to the wind? Or will she succeed in defeating this strange alien menace!?

Find out in this incredibly odd web comic inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft and slice of life Anime!

@DarkmasterN: Haha I always wondered where I got my darker/stranger fantasies from, must be something about the 6th of March... Well congratz on almost making it another year our b-day's only about a month and a half away
@Durwin: LOL! Thanksgiving is indeed one of my favorite holidays too. And actually you should be more excited to hear that I chose March 6th for a good reason. If that's your birthday, then you share a birthday with this comic as it's when I posted the first page for it on Deviantart~
Sweet
Thanksgiving has long been one of my favorite holidays, food, family, and fun. 3 of the 4 importants F's in life, if you know what I mean. Now I've come to find out that this Turkey Head came out on my birthday. Idk what it is yet, but you can bet I'm going to look into it. Thanks for the hard work man, always a treat waiting a few months then coming back to see what Laila and co. are up to

@DarkmasterN: Oddly enough I have little issue understanding this XD I think I know too much science and read too much venom and carnage comics (Though, they don't have to really deal with conservation of mass, in fact they seem to defile it quite readily.) But yesh this is amazing well though out I'm glad to hear it. It's fun to see some legit science thrown into comics even fantasy(Or is it Dun dun dun!!!!!) ones.

@AlexXeno: Well, that is part of it. Usually Laila is quite chunky and has the extra body mass to spare in reforming any needed limbs...

However Little Laila can still make Due, she'd just sacrifice things she doesn't need as much as it goes on. For instance if she still had her arms, she probably would have given up her extra fingers to just have one sharp one for tearing/piercing and put the other hand/finger mass to use as other parts she needs. Maybe remove several less necessary bones or muscles and turn them into other things. Sacrifice her ears and some of her teeth, parts of her brain or heart, Stomach, Intestines, pancreas, Liver. Anything she doesn't need right now can be turned into something else to use to fight if needed and grown back later.

I see you all discussing about her regrowing limbs and i'm just like "Look how skinny she is, what's she going to regrow with?!" XD

@Shadow Scryer: LOL Indeed.

I think even Remi can be a bit weird at times if you look back to that time she sniffed out food in Haruko's shirt and chased her down to eat it XD. The whole family is a bit off.
@Shadow Scryer: Thanks dood! This did turn out pretty good, especially with how old it is! And lol yeah, Laila's purplish skin is a little strange sometimes XD

@DarkmasterN: A dangerous way to be, especially when lacking context.

Oh dear, just realised Keiko's entire family sans Remi is a bunch of utter numpties. Keiko included due to her... odd way of thinking and incapability of applying logic.

@DarkmasterN: Well to be fair, there are very few times when Laila ISN'T adorable. Partially due to her appearance, partially because Human culture's still so alien to her. And of course, there are her mannerisms when she isn't being psychotic.
Never actually saw this cover, but it's quite impressive on its own for the level of detail you were already capable of back then, and comparing it to how you've improved over the years.

Also, it's interesting to see Laila with blueish-purple skin. Keep forgetting her pigment isn't even close to that of a human.

@Hey! Still a dude!: Yeah, she replicates and splits information throughout her entire body, and even her "Vital Organs" and what not, she can replace if they're lost by shifting her other parts to be that new organ. If she lost too much body mass then, and only then, would she start to be in trouble of losing things permanently unless she was successful or escaped. Basically it's like in "The Thing" You have to destroy all of her or she'll be back eventually.
