Why yes Noah, this test is worse than you pictured.
This "personalized test" doesn't seem to be very personalized...
She looks too young to have trained the Royal Guards from birth. Or did she just train them further?
Train them further & training some of the younger ones. Hard to brag by introducing nuance, of course.
These magic tests don't seem very safe
Twist: Erin's Burk's long lost sister.
And thus ends Noahs story
well, thats seem....excessive
Can Noah teleport in Erin's mind, like, real quick?
If not counting the (lack of) beard, she has more masculine jaw than Burk. Also, is apparently taller than most men here. Maybe she and Burk are of the same species?
While I love to just let people speculate, I'll just straight up say that Burk is human and not part of some weird "Burk" species.
I can't help but notice you didn't comment on Erin's species. Is she part of some weird "Erin" species?
Ha ha ha, I love this scene. Erin is now my favorite character ha ha.
Also awesome effect for the windup Neo.
He'n trying to trick us! Burk is definitely his own species; don't listen to these lies.
@Neoriceisgood I guess she is the same species as Burk, then, so technically Saiko's theory is correct.
Catch the axe with your face, of course
@all I'm giving up on clarifying anything ever again.
@Neoriceisgood Half the fun of speculating is coming up with weird theories that explain things but make no sense. Clarifying things and explaining stuff is nice but we are still going to assume silly stuff like this.
Oh I know, I was being cheeky. :p
I was laughing my ass off at some of today's comments.
that dosent sound like a very safe test...
i forgot if noah needs to touch the person he wants to get into. if he does, he's in a bad spot
Look on the bright side Noah, if you fail this test, you will be executed for using magic!
The first test is quite simple:
We are going to axe you something...
Given the magic used by Erin, I'd say it's a very safe test. Excruciating and traumatic yes, life threatening, probably not.
Well Noah... you can still try to enter the axe's mind... ...you've got nothing to lose... except... you know... your head.
he doesn't have to touch 'em
Noah's face in the last panel... He is just so incredibly over it xD
I think the test would be more informative if it didn't require near-immediate reaction time. Anyone who needs to focus in order to utilize their magic would be instantly "disqualified". That may, however, be Erin's point: having trained the Royal Guard, she clearly values extreme agility over purely calculated action. This also means the test is "personalized", but for Erin, not the test-taker.
The axe is probably enchanted with something that makes sure people can't die when being hit with it. Or it's an illusion.
there once was a man. he was a normal human. he then ascended into the most awesome most handsome and strongest "thing" in the world. that man gave himself the name Burk. so Burk > human = Burk race XD
@Whimbrel: Catch it N(appa)oah, catch it with your face! Like a dog!
