Veda pancakes.

No Veda pancakes for you today.

Hope you guys enjoyed the bonus updates!

Going back to the regular schedule starting tomorrow.

That's one adorable cloud, Alex.

Now I wonder what would have happened to "perfectly normal" Veda had the cloud not been there...

9393: Goblin Scribe - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 2:32 AM

Why do I get the sense that this section of the comic could have been cut a lot shorter if Alex had been just a bit slower just now? ;D

9394: Bisected - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 4:02 AM

An Alex Cloud is a cute cloud.

9395: Epsiloh - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 4:35 AM

awww man back to regular updates -_-.
Alex's free magic definitely seems more free then fuuka's.

9396: Magic Neorice Fairy - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 4:57 AM


Word has it they're both restricted, just in a different way.

9397: GreenDread - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 5:49 AM

So Alex is inspired by Super Mario?

9398: MaZe - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 7:17 AM

She was almost a Veda sandwich.

I'm trying not to see it, really, but the more I try the more I can't see anything else. Look at Veda. What is that? I mean I really don't want to say it, but I can't see anything else and it also makes zero sense so it can't be. But... tell me I'm not the only one.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so just assume you're wrong.

:p Very easy to read into pixels.

9401: itblobboy - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 10:18 AM

I think @LimaHotel is referring to Veda holding her hand over her chest. :P

Boy howdy does Alex have an attitude. Good response time though, or at least that's what I assume since Fuuka didn't appear to even try to stop the rock with any of her SURLY VARIED FREE MAGIC THAT NO DOUBT EXISTS AND COULD HAVE BEEN USED. Cute cloud too ^u^

I also wonder what Veda would have done hadn't there been intervention. Every time I see Veda I think of http://neorice.com/hoh_324

Regular updates? At least I have Monday to make it seem real one more day...

9402: Neoriceisgood - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 10:48 AM


There's a reason behind Fuuka restraining her use of free magic, I'll say that. :)

There's a hint at a significant difference between free magic & other magic types in null's explanation beyond the freedom to alter it.

9403: Neoriceisgood - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 11:02 AM


Okay I think I finally figured it out.

That's her hand, I often draw fists just as little balls.

9404: Whimbrel - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 11:15 AM

Aww, but NEO!! I wanted a continental breakfast today :<

9406: itblobboy - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 12:34 PM

Oh... This is awkward. I only now realized Alex was the girl from the beginning of the Noah series. Haha, my memory is derping... I should reread!

But for now I just reread Null's explanation scene to try and get a better idea of magic. I might be lacking creativity in my interpretation so far, but I currently think imagination is tied to exertion of magic. For example, the concept of melee is more intuitive to Fuuka than, say, laser beams for Alex. Since free magic users can't overexert themselves, it's easier to exert energy into what the individual is more understanding of. That makes sense doesn't it? I don't think it's quite right since that wouldn't absolutely negate Fuuka's ability to use Alex-esque magic, but it still seems like a train of thought worth commenting.

9407: Neoriceisgood - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 1:12 PM


Just a little author's note that nowhere in the comic it's implied that Fuuka's absolutely incapable of doing what Alex did. :)

9408: someone - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 4:35 PM

Did Veda have a wardrobe malfunction?

In that second panel, she looks upset but not frightened. Her expression seems to be "did this girl do that to attack me?" rather than "aieeeeee the sky is falling on my head". I suppose she probably had her own magical protections against getting pancaked.

9409: Neoriceisgood - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 4:50 PM


That's her low detailed pixelated fist. :p

You can see her bracelet and elbow next to it. :p

9410: Epsiloh - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 8:01 PM

I somewhat think that this was all planned. i dunno why but this has definitely shown off the potential of their magic users Alex saving Veda and all.

9411: phyrex - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 9:06 PM

youre driving me nut neo with what you said about null's explanation over magic. i love the topic but i really lack imagination for this sort of thing so i have no fucking clue x_x

9412: Natemare - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 11:12 PM


Don't read this the wrong way but is it likely we might see wardrobe malfunctions? I do read this at school and nsfw is the last thing I would like to see.

9413: natemare - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 11:13 PM


NOT saying its a bad thing however. ;)

9414: Leo - Sunday, May 22 2016 - 11:35 PM

@someone: Yeah, I didn't realize that before, but it seems like Veda is crazy powerful and is really just offended that Fuuka would dare to cause collateral damage in her direction.

Maybe the characters have much more insight than we give them credit for?

9415: Neoriceisgood - Monday, May 23 2016 - 12:32 AM


I don't have any planned nudity of any sort, no.

If I ever did find it necessary I'd probably throw some black bars on. I wouldn't just throw in nudity for no reason. (same reason I blip out most words more profane than fuck, lol)
