I am rooting for Alex here..
Is it just me or should all the heros come together at some point?
@MrRaffo: I believe they will connect at some point. Though that's probably very far off.
I guess, she's just standing there, undamaged or doing a surprise attack out of the fire.
Face tanking sometimes works. Sometimes.
@Neo - Is the "calling your attacks" trope justified here (they need to do it in order to do magic) or are you just a fan of it? :P
Will there be fights for all of the types of magic?
I find the nomenclature of Alex's latest attack amusingly misleading. I was expecting a volley of small attacks launched in quick succession. Instead, it appears to be fire that travels rapidly. :~P
Also I suspect Mia will likely land the last blow, unless she completely underestimated the potency of Alex's Rapid Fire against her aura shield.
Throughout the comic we've had examples of:
1. chars who don't say anything.
2. chars who just shout stuff to look cool.
3. chars who use verbal components to help focus.
4. chars who literally cannot use certain spells/magic without the verbal element.
You might notice that certain behaviors correlate a lot more to certain magic families though. :) I've always been quite intentional about the verbal stuff since chapter 1.
I'm personally rooting for Mia. She's cool.
Looks like this battle's heating up!
Does this consistency hold in Tom RPG? The Alex Beam looks a lot like the fairy beam that The Seductress incinerates the thin hero with. It's a straight line though, while fairy beam was a cone.
Explosions > Shields
I reaaaaally hope Noah gonna give a name to his magic, like "Noah's Misterious Magic Which Are Still Being Figured Out By Him, but Not The Thing On His Braaaaaain". In one breath.
Is there a typo in the last panel? Attack?
