I was debating a little bit about how much to say about the "reveal" on the last page. It turns out fewer people recognised her than I'd anticipated, which is OK; and then I thought, "Well, I had intended for people to know who she was since the last page", so there's really no reason for me to keep it a secret.
She is Nergal, a villain from the Sailor Moon RPG "Sailor Moon: Another Story". She is a member of the "Oppositio Senshi", people from the 30th Century discontented with the "utopia" of Crystal Tokyo, who were manipulated and given special powers by the evil queen Apsu. Nergal was the reflection of Sailor Mars, and was shown to be somewhat sarcastic, impulsive and trigger-happy, though a proud warrior who honoured her promises.
For more information I heavily recommend that you play the game yourselves (it's a lot of fun!), though you're all free to elaborate further in the comments.
I really love how you have elements of all the versions. Awww Minako. :( And Kunzite... cold and austere as ever. I want her to just be trolling and say "JUST KIDDING" so Kunzite is even more charmed and pissed. haha what are the chances?
...Minako, you idiot! How could you! I feel with you Kunzite, but then again I hope that Minako goes all "Well, why don't you do anything! You're a warrior, even the leader so don't look at me jerk!"
That would be an epic win!
And I understand her "I hoped everything would go well!"-argument. But Minako, you should've known better.
To be perfectly honest, my first thought was that Kunzite is projecting. We already know how horrible he feels that he let down his prince in the past; this is probably bringing up some issues for him about duty and responsibility. Throw in the fact that, as far as we know, he can't fight himself and he's probably a wreck right now.
OHGOSH Wow! I've been following you on tumblr for a while (I love reading your thoughts on Sailor Moon, they're always interesting!) and geeze I really like this comic! The storyline's believable, everyone seems pretty in character. It's like I'm reading an arc of the official story that I've never seen before. Your art style is lovely, the silly expressions go hand in hand with the silly humor wonderfully.
Thank you for doing this fan comic! I look forward to more.
Gaaah, I missed 4KH! Dang, Kunzite's pretty hard on Minako, but I do get where he's coming from. He'd better watch out though, since Mina's got a serious side too. He's gonna be in so much trouble if she goes all srzs bznz.
Um... that outfit doesn't have pockets? What are those horizontal lines on her chest?
Yeah, 200 episodes and nobody ever forgot their artifact at home. Haven't cleared the manga but I don't think it happened there ether..
