Behold, a page!
Be fair Hevel (or was it Beanie?), who could have anticipated Felix?
I love the amount of detail in the page.
Noah looks so sad in the last slide
At least Garth is getting one part of his job right, but that's only because he's doing great at 2 individual halves of two different areas of his job...
1) He is teaching stuff, but only after a lesson that *could* have ended in death. Whereas he could have had them safely practice the concepts in the classroom with a nonlethal version of the magiball so they could know and understand how spirit works, instead of having some students either learn on the fly, play after already knowing the techniques, or letting them play with near to 0 knowledge and almost kill themselves.
2) He is keeping them alive, but technically almost barely. I don't know if he knew that Noah had his spirit out, but if he did, ok, but if not, then damn. It's worse when looking at the Felix incident where it was only by his amazing reflexes that he saved Felix from becoming a wall's new paint job; whereas the situation could have been avoided if he had either directly taught his class the basics of each individual technique, or if he was clearer on how the spirit shield works.
Granted that last one's partly Felix' fault because it should have been obvious to push spirit out, not in, for a shield, but Garth already knew how much of a little shit Felix is and should have taught accordingly, not for Felix' sake, but for his own, because the teacher/student responsibility split problem is a bitch!
But at least he's trying guys!
(as supposed to Felix,, he's just desperate to check out the Emperor's sexy statue)
training more intense than ninja shinobi!
yet a simple a high school dodgeball - if one of the seniors was coach for the day.
So, does spirit shield dampen all blows? That ball is sensitive to spirit. But if it was just a steel ball would it still dampen the blow? I think I already know the answer if it was a gold ball.
My guess is, that it's easier to shield yourself from something physical that is sensitive to spirit but still possible from something that isn't.
I won't go into explicit detail, but I'd say you're generally right.
I love that "technically" there. He doesn't really care if they live or die, but it'd probably be inconvenient for him if they died.
Ooooh, training explanations! I love this part :D
Methinks we discovered the term for Ariara's magic defense: Spirit Cover.
Probably, training will get harder and harder in their little school and some fraction of them will die. Idk thats what i take from this
Since it's basically a military school, deaths are to be expected. And since it's kind of secret school, it's easier to cover any accidents. Spirit cover up ;)
Here's a riddle: What is in the eye of the bee holder?
This comic! A-yeyah!
@jemm: In fairness, Felix proofing his lesson plans can't be the easiest of tasks, it's easy to see something similar happening even in the safest of environments when Felix is involved. And safe environments may be hard to find when teaching magick.
At least this way he's gotten a measure of their natural talents and discovered a hidden Pandemonium Power. Possibly two if Noah's insight into that incident gives him away.
