Webcomic Profile: Quickening


Quickening: the ability to manifest your soul energy in the form of a weapon.


Tony Lockhart is a senior student who attends one of the most prestigious schools in the country: Rowan Academy, which is known for its discerning methods of teaching the art of Quickening and combat. Every day he faces giant robots, giant reptiles, rabid fangirls (but not HIS fangirls), sadistic teachers, and anything that can put him in a life-or-death situation. All for the greater cause. Or so they say.

But, really, he just wants to graduate with all his limbs intact.

Not like he knows what Yvette acts like, so I'm pretty sure this tactic is gonna go straight down the drain.

Who needs to sleep soundly anyhow. Nah, kawaii Yvette can just go ahead and haunt me behind my eyelids until I see something even more off putting.

Yvette never makes such an expression; Tony is rightly terrified.

@Anime fan: Oh, gosh, sorry for the late reply; I just saw this today. Illusion-based techniques are psychological, kind of like a placebo effect. While there's no real physical damage, it's just like @RadicalTrain said: the brain is tricked into believing it's real, so there is a debilitating effect to go along with it. Which is why the stronger your mental constitution (i.e., Resolve), the better you can fight off illusions. Think also of the genjutsu of Itachi's mangekyou sharingan. Hope that answers your question! :)

@Anime fan: Dunno but there's the saying that if you die in a dream you die in real life because your brain believes it to be real.

Does the illusion account for pain? Even the tiniest degree of it?

All he's gotta do is make him miss his plane, really.

Illusion-based battles are always awkward to watch, from a bystander's point of view lol

ANNOUNCEMENT: Quickening will take a one-week break because I'm going to work on Skiagraphia next week lol omg it's been a while.
