OH, Tadashii! Such a flowery way to say “I won’t tell anyone you ain’t dead if ya git outta here and don’t come back!” And, sure, Genchu’s still bleeding and wet and will probably die of hypothermia, but maybe he can walk it off! Just a flesh wound.

    Just finish off Steve Buscemi. If you don’t, he’ll return and blackmail you.

    Also, *its

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      ugh, a typo! I’m blaming Joe for that one. Its your fault, Joe! I mean it’s!

  • SKy

    …aaaand plottwist.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      We’re MASTER storytellers!

  • Hfar

    “And with this act of honor I have added a comfy layer of plot armor. Feels good.”
    “Wait, don’t honorable ‘villain’ samurai tend to die tragic deaths during the penultimate arch?”
    “Maybe, but I’ve still bought myself a few hundred pages of life until then. Later bitches.”

    • Thiago Kurovski

      He can always ask for similar treatment later on.

      “Er, guys, can you conveniently miss this final strike? I swear I’m turning into… er… a bicycle mechanic?”

      • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

        “And moving to Portland!”

    • IDPounder

      He out!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      You can write the comic now. JOE’S FIRED!

      • Hfar

        Yay! So, when do I get my first paycheck? …What do you mean “indefinite unpaid internship?”

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          It’ll look great on your resume! You’ll get exposure!

  • Mike

    Genchu: “Ummm… that mercy extend to a warm fire? Yes? Maybe? … Aw dammit.”

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      “Maybe a blankie?”

  • Lady Courage

    Since Genchu did NOT just die of a heart attack, he’ll totally be fine. No worries.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      He’s got flashback armor! I mean, you know, if this IS a flashback…

      • Lady Courage

        Flashback armor makes you invincible in the future!

        • Hfar

          Ah ha! But the real twist is that this is a flashforward!

          • Lady Courage

            !?!?!? Does flashforward armor make you invincible in the past then too?

          • Hfar

            Nope. Flashforward armor is actually half as weak as regular armor.

            They needed extra material to make all that flashback armor invulnerable so they borrowed it from the future figuring future people don’t need it as much. Unfortunately this means that nine times out of ten whenever there’s a flashforward everything’s gone to shit. An obvious error in hindsight.

          • Lady Courage

            Aw crap. No wonder I got this flashforward armor so cheap… Ricardo, you bastard!!!

          • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

            If only armories would take the future into consideration when smelting flashback armor! What lives are we leaving for OUR CHILDREN??

  • Xinef

    I’m not sure why, but now I’m beginning to think that Tadashii is secretly a necromancer…

    A poet necromancer. ^_^

    • Mike

      So would that be a necroet or a poecromancer?

      • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

        Poetmancer, clearly.

        • Xinef

          Haikumancer sounds even better, but no matter how I look at Tadashii’s words, I can’t fit them into the requirements to qualify as haiku. I’m only sure that “enough” is the cutting word…

          I blame the translation to English.

          • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

            You are a brilliant haikumancer, sir. I’ll go edit that into the script now.

  • Johannes Hjortshøj

    Genchu is ths Black knight. Tis but a scratch!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      All my limbs are still attached? Yeah, I’m fine.

  • Sunwu

    Joe? Alex? Does this mean Fujio will get Tadashi’s sword to go with his hat now??

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Tadashi’s sword? I think Tadashi will be holding on to that for a while yet.

      • Sunwu

        but he’s walking away from it….

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          Oh, that’s Genchu’s sword! The one that Ryoushi knocked out of Genchu’s hand. Tadashi must have found it and fake-stabbed Genchu with it.

  • charles81

    He’s met Tadashi and he’s still alive

    He’s doin’ fishing and he’s still alive
    He’s sellin’ weapons and he’s still alive
    There’s a war on and he’s still aliveThey’ll go pub crawling while he’s still alive
    The world will end and he’ll be still alive

    STILL ALIVE!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Is this a Portal reference? Tell me it is!

      • Xinef

        No, Portal is a reference to Genchu.

        Didn’t you know that Lex and Matrix work for Aperture Science?

      • charles81

        This is a triumph
        I’m making a note here:
        Huge success
        It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction

        Wataro-Daisuki
        You fought to save the clan
        For the good of all of them
        Except the ones you behead

        But there’s no sense crying over every sword fight
        You just keep on swinging with all o your might
        And the killing gets done
        ‘Till the clan falls to the son
        For Wataros who are still alive!

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          I can hear Glados in my head!

          • margarinecup

            I can always hear GLaDOS in my head.

          • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

            She does seem to have that effect on people.

          • Kid Chaos

            You monster. 😎

  • Scott Henry

    Still want to see good guy ninja. Hattori Hanzu or some such please?

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Well, the ninja clan is essentially allied with the Senshin clan now. Does that not yet make them good enough?

      • Scott Henry

        No. Cause they will probably betray them if paid enough by an opposing daimyo. These are more the hollywood ninja badguys.

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          Unfortunately, if you’re looking for a Rikimaru or a Jubei Yagyu to appear with righteousness in his heart and a blade forged of justice, you’ll probably be disappointed. Yori, Masuhiro, and Genchu are our quintessential do-gooders. The ninja clan characters may get some heroic moments in the future, if that’s any appeasement!

    • Kid Chaos

      Sooner or later, a good guy ninja will appear! Believe it! :)
