Now seems as good a time as any to discuss English voices of the Four Kings. What kinds to you imagine? Do you imagine that they'd be the exact same as their Japanese voices, or (unfortunately for Zoi) Cloverway's? For me, it's a combination of both. I think Kunzite's English voice would sound just like his Japanese versions'; deep as a gangster's. Nephrite would sound much like Nephlite though more... natural? Jadeite would be younger and less raspy than either of his versions, I think. More eager to please.
Also, I have always intended Zoisite's lines in 4KH to be spoken with a prim British accent. You know, the kind that could be either a femmy-boy or a butch girl if you couldn't see him speaking?
What about you? Any thoughts?
Oh, and on that topic, everyone from Nemesis should have an Australian accent. Think about it.
That being said everyone's faces are awful on this page. I apologise. This, if you would believe it, is an improvement.
On the shelf, between his copies of "Yu Yu Hakusho" and "Fullmetal Alchemist". :p
I love Kunzite's expression in the last panel, as well as his comment about Mamoru not being stupid enough to drink mothball coffee. Besides, I imagine that anyone who can survive Zoisite's cooking could withstand ingesting pretty much any household product.
On the new layout... I really like it. However, I think you need to add a bgcolor="#ffffff" in there somewhere. *pulls up page source* Uh... then again, it looks like you're using CSS, and I'm really only familiar with basic HTML, so I'm not sure if that's the right code.
I just mention it because it looks like you didn't set a background color. When this happens, the browser defaults to the color set by the user (at least for Windows users, that is). 99% of the time, people leave it white. But weirdos like me change it to something else. As a result, I see <a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/images/pb/Z/Z7JUfuLx4ZPeS8tlvsvuK.gif">this& lt;/a>. (Does HTML work in the comments? Guess I'll find out...)
About their voices, it's been over a decade since I heard the English dub, so I only have the vaguest recollection of what they sounded like. As a result, I imagine them with their original Japanese voices. Perhaps a bit younger (and less evil) sounding.
And I THINK our sexy wifebeating Cold-as-mofo-ing-ICE king has a bit of a crush! Or something!
I'm subscribing to the Usagi school of thought, which is that Demando and Safir aren't necessary evil anymore (no black moon thingies) but he still carried over a bit of the crazy and maybe doesn't understand that in this world, Murder is Bad mmkay. It's like...a period of adjustment or something. At least I hope, because I kind of want to see him facedown on a bartop sobbing out his innermost feelings to like...Nephrite or someone, while they pat his shoulder and reassure them that they are not ugly losers and that there are other fish in the sea.
OR Mamoru filling that role XD "Hey man, chin up. It's cool, you know...they'll be other girls, and um. Hey wait, you're moping about my wife D:< NM, FU!"
Also another vote that I'm dying from the pretty! The muscles! the faces! The hair! V want!!! And HAAA...yeah go to bed Demando. Save the crazy for later.
Kunzite continues to grow more awesome with every panel :D I think you've really captured both the "Arabian king" and "older brother" aspects of his personality. Like the way he sort of humors Dimande, or the fact that in spite of being cool as ice in dealing with the latter's scheming, he still manages to have some empathy.
Which makes me wonder... Is that an "I can understand that" as in he's been through something similar, or is he just saying that he doesn't have to be in love (or lust as it were) to know what it is?
I've been out of town for a while so I had some catching up to do. Wow, its a good thing Dimande didn't move in with Usagi. I was keeping my judgment in reserve but now I hope you've got something really horrible in store for him.
self destruct in five... four...
i imagined them all with the voices of sailor moon abridged since this is a humor oriented comic. sometimes i imagine zoisite being manlier, and i imagine some of the scouts iwth their english dub voices.
I just spent...some two odd hours reading through your work when I should've been working. Time well wasted? Ooooh,yes.
You are all kinds! of! awesome!!! so awesome!!! I love your characterization of the generals, and you made Zoicite... work. Most shitennou-fic writers choose to brush over the whole Zoicite-was-gay bit (poor Mercury!!), but you! braved! through! murky! waters! and you rocked it. So awesome.
Excuse my overzealous exclamation marks, but they're the only way I can express my excitement that your work exists!!!!!! Please don't stoooopppppp!!! I will totally be OC-checking your page from now on. Woo!
(A part of me wonders if Naoko Takeuchi purposely did that painting with the senshi/shitennou to ensure Sailor Moon's immortality......and the other part wishes that she wrote/drew more about/of them, dammit...)
