Project: Karamawari

They called it "Information Malpractise [IM]" - the phenomena of a (usually) wide-area-affecting physical embodiment of what should have only been a mere fragment of someone's imagination.

Area K is the newest area to be highlighted as a danger zone for IM issues, and the team assigned to keep it in control have not been named Team "Karamawari" for no reason.

"Karamawari": the pointless, roundabout pursuit of an unreachable goal.

You should know me~ 8D

Add me to your fan club alright? OuO
It stinks~
OAO I knew it!

Oh, Kale~ You have a sexy black hand. I always find hands and arms discolored due to wounds or deformities strangely appealing...Somehow, I do not feel ashamed. Ohohohohuhuhu~~~

Long chapters are nothing to be ashamed of, however! I find this chapter to be thoroughly enjoyable, since I've become emotionally invested in poor Kale's tragic tale of a loony, murderous, kind-of-a-bitch mom pitted against her supposed-to-be-dead son; fighting in an epic battle of clashing morals and catchy comeback lines. Ahaha, I kind of don't want it to end, it's so exciting and dramatic. I hope everyone garners a new appreciation for Kale, since this is pretty much totally above-and-beyond the call of duty, at least in my eyes.

Question time, question tiiiime~! You ready? No? Oh-freakin'-well: Once Kale's mom is defeated (I'm assuming she's either beaten, or flees to fight another day), what will happen to Kale? If she is defeated, does that mean Kale's hand will be healed? Does that mean he'll no longer have to wear bandages, and then Kaze and he can no longer be called that Bandaged Limb Combi?!

Oh no! Now that I think about it, if crazy-mama is defeated, will Kale even stay with the IM government organization thingamajig? Cause, I think I know from file 3.5 that he only joined in order to keep himself from rotting away, and to gain information as to his mother's whereabouts. Now that she's been found, and that he might possibly defeat her and be healed (or maybe not, who knows?), he really doesn't have a reason to stay, does he? Unless Kaze totally uses puppy-dog eyes and pout-of-disappointed-innocence (I think my brain just broke from typing that and thinking at the same time) to make him stay, but that's just a slightly disturbed girl's fantasy.

Even then, there's the chance that Kale's mom might get away. She's eluded people before, right? What if Arche doesn't make it on time to undo the IM and Kale's mom slips away into the night to go infect other defenseless children so that they'll say grace and what they're thankful for during Thanksgiving?!

But, hm. No need to answer any of these! I'll find out soon enough! Ahaha.

On other notes: Ahahahohohohuhuhu~~~

You know what else needs some appreciation a bit farther down...

...Knees. Knees are sexy!

Draw more knees! I guarantee about a .05% increase in your comic-reading population at just the addition of this simple fanservice. I, for one, am--(SHOTSHOTSHOT)

Ahaha, anyways...Great page! I'm excited to learn of what happens next, and if Kale's crazy mom will turn the tables on our luffable chicken-molesti--- I mean eating, hero. Ahem. Yes.

Now, I'm off to go wallow in the miserable cold. Can you freakin' believe it?! I'm living in Florida, the land of only TWO seasons, and I'm freezing my ass off! Constant 40 degree average weather down here! Simply uncalled for. I feel jipped.

Painful to know that the son has to fight his own mother...


Guys check out my thread on the SJ Awards Nomination and get shocked with who I nominated. ^_^

@BK_1/VGKid: =A=!!! I-I wanna be able to do pages that fast too OTL Orz orz...
ONE DAY. ONE DAY I WILL GET THERE QvQ;;;
And thank youuu =A= (still studying comic composition and failing)

@TheDayDreaming: Whoa OAO
I... I say this truthfully with no sense of sarcasm intended... I-I... ;u; (/touched) T-thank you so much for the (really really really) long comment. +_+;;; This should go in the guiness world records or something. *SHOT*

I-I'm also so glad (more like, extremely touched OTL) that people actually remember stupid little things I put on fillers ahaha. T///v///T (/thanks your dad for reminding<?> you about P:K)

Crotch Appreciation Week! OAO
I demand we get a week of public holidays so we can er. Appreciate the... sheer beauty of... crotches. O3O++
(closes eyes and listens to heroic music) Yes! Yes I shall be proud of my crotches! *SHOT*

Ahaha =q= Amendment for award approved OvOb

Also, I thank the chocolate milk for your comment QvQ It made my day, really ;v; <33

@Krazy: KALE DOESN'T MIND. HE SAYS YOU CAN TAKE HER ANYTIME YOU WANT. HOPEFULLY NOW. Because he kinda wants to stop fighting and just go back home for dinner. Or something like that. OvO+

Action scenes. (failfailfail)
And in the meantime I realise that my weekly monday page has shifted itself to a tuesday page instead. OTL Uwaaa... Hopefully I'll be able to shift it back to original schedule soon.

School starts in one week. OTL Holidays always pass by so quickly. Hopefully I'll have time to keep up with weekly updates nevertheless OwO+

File 4 is officially going to be the longest chapter so far TvT;;; But the point is coming soon! Really soon! Like, in two pages or so! OAO+

AHHH-ha!
Go, Kale, go! This is your epic moment! Ruin this, and by the divine forces of all that is poultry, you will come to know true pain and suffering. Or Kaze will save your ass, or something....Mm, Kale ass.

I-I can't really tell the difference between sarcasm and simple statements that well. For all I know, you could be subtly hinting at me to summarize, Summarize, SUMMARIZE dogdammit!

I still feel very ashamed, though, about missing so many pages. After all, this is the only story I comment regularly on, and with any real relish in making my thoughts heard. It's super-awesome, and I could never forget for that long! I actually remembered to check to see if you were off hiatus because we had fried chicken one night, and my dad was playing with a leg bone in his mouth, like a cigarette. Ahaha, awful way to remember, huh?

And, y'know, I want a crotch appreciation week! No one ever sees the crotch as anything more than a sex symbol. The crotch is never truly seen for its artistic excellence, and pivotal role in daily life! There are a lot of beautiful curves and lines there (well, they're there if you have a *non-sexual* line fetish, like me [why the hell does everyone think that fetish always implies as 'sexual' fetish?! I take great offense when my choice of vocabulary is met with suggestive and disapproving glances, especially when it's completely innocent! RANTRANTRANT]). Not to mention, without crotches, we would not have two separate legs to walk with; we would not be able to push (ugly, alien) babies out; and we wouldn't be able to kick boys into submission, or have a jolly laugh at another's extreme discomfort. Remember, Hika, ALWAYS BE PROUD OF THE CROTCHES YOU DRAW!!! (*heroic music begins to play, and is that the distinct noise of brain-bleach being taken out form under the computer desk I hear?*)SHOT

Ahem, er, yes. Proving that award very well over here. Perhaps an amendment should be made, though; something like '-but-you-won't-want-to-remember them-quick-cover-your-childrens'-eyes'. Yeah, something like that.

Anyways, love the paneling! Experiment away! I think it's great to experiment with different styles so that everyone can see and comment on what works best, and you can build from there. I, unfortunately, completely suck at critiquing art and pointing out what is and isn't good. Or, I miss the point in general. But, to my unrefined eyes, things are looking excellent. And ohmygod Kale's hand. (bursts out in tears of joy) They're real! They're really real, for like reals! (they weren't before?) Take that Kale's mom, biatch! Woo!

You can always tell that I'm hyper off of chocolate milk (it's true) when my comment starts to degenerate after the first sentence. Sorry for the inconvenience...and the long-ass reply. I wish I weren't so long-winded.

@The DayDreaming: Oh god I missed your super long comments. Q___Q (cries happy tears of joy)
And nono don't worry too much about it OvO+ (is already super glad to see that you came back to read after you forgot)
T-thank you very much though OAO;;; I never thought I drew crotch areas well but since you think so I can now be proud of my awesome crotches! *SHOTSHOT*
(gives you special Hika award for "totally-out-of-place-but-still-applicable-and-completely-memorable-comments&q uot;.) Whewf. That was a long award name. orz

@BK_1/VGKid: It's okay~ >v<b Missing pages is fine QvQ (is already super happy that you guys are still reading this super long draggy thing)
Ahaha it takes me around 3~4 hours for one page usually. When I rush around 2 hours, when I have backgrounds 7~8 hours... orz
I will work hard!

@Bubblesita: (coughcough) I will pretend I didn't see anything there <3

@Kairin Touzen: T-thank you~

Sorry about the delayed page again...!
Goddamnit it's the holidays and I'm still running around being busy for things that aren't school work. OAQ;;;

Also in the mean time pardon me whilst I attempt to use P:K to apply things I've learnt from japanese books about how to panel for manga and stuff like that for the next few pages. (/experiments OTL)

NUUUUUOOOOO!!!!
Oh, wait. Yeeeeeeesss.

Kale! You're actually starting to repent for looking like a complete and utter chicken-o'-fail a couple pages back.

I can't wait! Indicative by the slightly smoking bandages in the last panel, I think we're finally going to get to see Kale's poor hands! Very, very exciting indeed. But, wait... He said that they smelled really bad...Oh, ew, ew.

And what has Kale's mom forgotten?! I'm sure it's totally obvious, but I'm too much of a retard to figure it out. I mean, I think I get it, but really, for all I know, Kale could just say, "Look, *insert distraction here*, behind you!" and run away with Kaze into the horizon.

Ahaha, I missed this. I didn't realize that there were so many updates I had missed. T_T I feel really bad about not commenting; I'm made of fail for forgetting that this comic even existed for the last couple months. But, the weeks before exams are a complete bitch at my school, so, meh.

P.S.: Have I ever told you that I love how you draw crotch areas? (I mean this in the completely non-perverted sense! I swear!...really.) I always have trouble drawing around there, and, well, everywhere else, now that I think about it. Have I also ever mentioned that, if there were ever an award for making totally-out-of-place-but-still-applicable-and-completely-memorable comments, I would win?

Ahaha, glad you're back.
