And after two weeks, we’re finally back to the main character.
This is a really odd page. When I finished drawing it, I couldn’t help but think what a bold move this was. I debated redoing the whole thing many, many times over the past month and a half since I actually finished this one. But the fact is, this is an incredibly significant page… just, not for the same reason that any of you would probably realize yet. ;)
I’m going to let you guys interpret this one however you choose. Is it blatant foreshadowing? Is it merely a clever distraction to throw you off? Am I toying with you more than you realize? My answer to all of those questions: you tell me. XD
What I will tell you - in case you were wondering - the characters in the manga are (from left to right) Kaminari, Aneko and Hokori. You will be hearing the story of “Black Wings, Kaminari” frequently throughout this story. It’s okay if you don’t completely follow it or haven’t quite gotten the names down yet though. Most of it is going to be told out of order and in choppy snippets after all. I’ll do my best to make sure you can follow along with pretty minimal knowledge of what’s going on though. After all, it’s not directly relevant, but it does enhance the experience. ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Sounds a lot like something else.
This is the second time I've noticed you've used "Black Wings, Kaminari" to blatantly parallel Rain's story. xD Nice.
I kinda want Rain to fall for Maria :/
I think I figured out the connection between that manga and the story although Im sure every body probably figured it out too
Anyway I figured that the swordsman(Hokori) is Gavin, the short tempered lady is Maria the mage boy would be Rudy and Kaminari is Rain...and their stories and personalities match with reality...
I really like the concept of this story and the way you connected the two stories with each other...its simply awesome
After seeing the little hint you gave us on page 804, I decided to just reread the whole thing... And you really weren't kidding when you said there's a method to your madness xD
