Okay, but really. I've been doing sprite comics for a long while, ever since NSider was a thing - and certainly since well before I realized I was a trans lesbian. Probably leaves me as one of the oldest people here still doing sprite comics, but I've got setups that I have to see through to the end.

I like Mario, Pokemon, Kirby, Rhythm Heaven, and incredibly silly/convoluted references to past works.

Oh hey I finally moved this over here.

The months are, perhaps obviously, based on their respective gemstones. Daima = April = diamond, for example.
Most of you are probably super confused! What the heck is this stuff? Where's the Love-Love Stick? Why is an angel hamster involved?

The very few of you who'd noticed the Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak references would have seen the build-up a long time ago, right as the Love Meter was introduced. I don't have any real REASON for switching it out like I did... except that I felt like subverting expectations.

And also to set up a joke image that I haven't actually done yet whoops. I'll put that in another author comment here when I do make it.
Once again, it's been a while! But there's more updates to come - one tomorrow, and one two days after that, on the 10th anniversary!

Really, all the things happening here were inevitable. Keeby and Paula catching up, Batamon finally being a big enough douche reeeeally piss Kirby off, the myriad of friendlies along the way helping lay the smackdown on Dark Red... not really a huuuge amount of surprise there.

Tomorrow's page might be a little more surprising.
@RedsterTheGamer: In-universe answer: He's not yet over the disappointment of everyone failing to stop Kirby, and didn't want to have to step in himself.

Actual answer: I wanted to use a bunch of the unique sprites from the game's sequences when it shows you the codes for Extra Mode and such.
@RedsterTheGamer: That'd be the English dub, which doesn't have the song referenced here.
...aaaand no Adeleine Dream Friend reveal. Guess I didn't time this as well as I hoped.
So. This name. Ado, standing for Adeleine Dark Orange.

I've had this planned since... I don't remember exactly how far back, but it certainly predates the Dream Land 2 arc (which started over four years ago). And in fact, the buildup to this was the entire reason why I gave the pieces of Dark Matter individual names to begin with, and that led to them having differing personalities and wants and potential rifts between them... all because of this thing.

This thing that's a stupid reference joke.

Also if these constant self-created delays have had one positive outcome, Adeleine should hopefully be pretty relevant the day this goes up! So there's that.
@Muix: aaaaa even when it's done this page still finds a way to make me come back to it

So I came up with the idea of putting extra midbosses into this stage way before I even started on this arc. It sounded great!

And then I had to do the sprite work. Yaaaaaay.

I'm not totally satisfied with Whyyou's design here, but it works juuust well enough, and Dubior honestly looks pretty good despite having exactly one pose. (I planned to make two, but the first one was difficult enough.)

And then there's Harmony. I'll... address her inclusion a page or two later. The reasons will be a bit more clear then.
That one panel was going to be a bit more elaborate and actually feature enemies in the background, but I was running late as is.

And hey, I gave the Shade Swipers some relevance! I think I decided on this revelation prior to their first appearance in this arc.
@applehead27: Those are just taken from the game itself, mostly. The basic standing pose took a bit of small editing, and the walking/bouncing sprites needed to be recolored, but for the most part there's barely any custom work there.
@applehead27: If you mean the 8-bit sprites from the Dream Land 2 arc, those are edits of Kirby sprites with Noddy's eyes (and a custom hat).

If you mean the KDL3-looking one that appears in the banner sometimes... thaaaat's actually just a recolor of the base 8-bit sprite. It's not great. Which is the primary reason why Marx hasn't been in this arc at all.
Honestly I'm not sure why they didn't just use Mr. Frosty instead of this kiiiinda lazy miniboss design
Oh wow it's been so long that not only has a whole Kirby game come out between real pages, but so has DLC for it! Only one wave, though.

And it's finally here: the one Heart Star challenge that everybody hates. I do too! Even with how ingrained the KDL3 sound effects are in my head thanks to a certain arc-finale project I've done work on, it's still not something I can really get down. Plus I keep having the problem in Star Allies' Guest Star mode where allies will run into the Cook hat and become Kawasaki when I didn't want that and it's annoying.

also obvious anime joke
On one hand, the current-as-of-this-writing KDLA arc should not have lasted nearly this long, but on the other hand, the time spent gave me easy access to this sort of Star Allies joke.
@silent dee: Technically, that's not Swordy. That's RKInventor, cousin to PikaMario99. (And of course, they're the reason why this segment was called Two Cousins Forum, beause they had said forum for a while and I was uploading there at the time.)

Why does he look exactly like Swordy? Because Swordy in KvtS was originally supposed to be his insert character (back when Lazor was supposed to be PikaMario99's own self-insert).

Yes I remember this crap from a decade ago.
Two Face: Check it out! I'm the most obscure Kirby enemy to show up in Star Allies!

Buu-Robo: Hold my beer.

(I'm sorry for memeing instead of finishing KDLA pages)
