Ooooh this should be FUN.
Két is a very free-spirited individual who likes taking things as they come and going with the flow.

Jasmine is a bit more used to the rigor and rhythm of the Marines, but now that she's a Pirate, she figures - what the heck? Might as well have some fun while she's sailing the high seas.
Let's get right into things.

Well, we can already tell that Veil Island is different than last time. Granted, both times things were awkward as all hella, but this time it's been outright stated that it's a bad place and not just a bad feeling. As Jasmine spent time in the Marines, she has more knowledge than the first go-around, so she gets to play Ms. Exposition a lot of the time. Should be fun!
Let's go ahead and start up Chapter Three! I'll throw up another page later today to start up the chapter. And also celebrate Easter I guess. So, see you in a few hours!
I'm guessing this is going to cause an angsty little confrontation later on.
And here ends Chapter Two, with a pretty important note to end on! It seems that Jasmine's actions on Shinevare earned her a bounty of her own. Granted, literally deserting the Marines to join a pirate crew in front of a bunch of Marines will do that to you... Also note, the amount isn't shown yet. It's not that I haven't decided what it is yet - I'm just only going to reveal that a little later. Not much, mind you. Literally the next chapter actually. For now though, it's a secret to everybody.

Zanzabar is... oddly supportive of his adoptive niece figure's choice, all things considered. We'll just have to see how that winds up unfolding in the future.
Next chapter is soon~ (I think)
Oh boy, now that he's introduced, we can stop monkeying around.
So many 'sir!'s. Dear lord.
Let's jump over a few islands to wherever it is that Zanzabar is now, until the chapter ends.

I was debating making an actual design for an assistant Marine to Zanzabar, but then I realized, 'No wait, that would have been Jasmine', so I just stuck with an ordinary NPC Marine for the purposes of this update. Chances are, by the time we meet him in canon, he'll have an actual new assistant, but until that point, this'll have to do.
It'd be nice to see more updates, but you're already juggling too much as is, I'd imagine.

Second note, keep forgetting how nice Jasmine's design is. Keep it up c:
Maybe I should update this comic more frequently. Then again, I don't make pages for it nearly as often as I would have to do in order to do that... aaauuugh update schedules are hard

Anyway, we're now out of the flashback, joining Két and Jasmine out at sea! This is literally the only time Két is appearing in this entire chapter it's kind of hilarious if we're being honest here.

The Red Bow Pirates' next destination is up ahead! Granted, we still have two pages in this chapter, so we have to wait a bit longer until we get to that point, but well, y'know.

No regrets when you're out at sea.
And here ends the flashback. Young Jasmine has made her choice, and is following Zanzabar to follow her dream and become a Marine. But as we've seen, it turns out to be a decision that she regrets.
It seems that Zanzabar is happy with her answer. Enough that he's willing to pass over the sword she uses in present day.

Also, yes, I am out of town at the moment, I had pre-set this update before I realized I would be and I was too lazy to shift everything over a week. Heck it. Updates are updates.
You know I am surprised to see a character Named Zanzabar who isn't a Buu from DBZ. Been hanging around my friend Gyoshi too much. Haha his Buu in DB Xenoverse is a Buu named Zanzibar.
And here we have a strange sight - or, I guess maybe it's not? Zanzabar is... well, he's a Marine, that's true. But maybe he's not entirely happy about that fact. As we established in Chapter One, Jasmine joined the Marines to keep people safe and left when it became apparent that 'keeping people safe' wasn't all Marines did. But from the looks of it - Zanzabar may have had a hand in shaping that worldview.
Well at least she didn't die, then we'd have a revenge trope on our hands.

It seems a little odd that a former Pirate would entrust a Marine with the care of her granddaughter, even if that granddaughter is adopted. It seems a little odder that Zanzabar, a talented Marine in his own right, would be trying to discourage Jasmine from becoming one. There's a story here, I'm sure. But we aren't going to be telling it just yet.

Sidebar - Yes, Zanzabar didn't make it out of that fight unscathed. Neither did Mable. It's just the scars are on the other side of his face.
I guess he's also not used to seeing a person raised by a pirate that has virtues.

As a Marine, Zanzabar isn't exactly used to people being happy to see him after he's responsible for the arrest of someone close to them.

But Jasmine isn't most people, and her grandma has taught her well. Or... something. Well, one way or the other.
