I assume that the fifth panel is Genchu feeling bad about killing dogs, but they were kind of trying to kill him. And then that arrow, ouch! Karmic retribution or SOMETHING ELSE?? Probably something else.
Almost as good as Cho at finding arrows… Almost
Let’s be fair, only half as good, at best!
I dunno, granted Cho is blind, but Genchu can do it with no hands.
And facing backward!
Hmmm, should he take it out or leave it in?…
Leave it in, looks good with the rest of the outfit.
Is Genchu the Glunk That Got Thunk?
“Sorry! Was trying to hit the wolf!”
Thank you, Concorde.
Yeah, that’s right… we got bows now. Who’da thunk it?
Who brings bows to a sword fight?? The winner, that’s who!
Cheating bastard! [And now I have just added “bastard” to my Kindle’s dictionary. I’m so proud.] 😀
Oh, well, that’s, like, one of the first words I would’ve added!
Shoot him with arrows, he’s got a sword!
…You idiots! We’ve all got swords!
Except for that one guy, he’s got ARROWS.
Arrows shouldn’t hinder you to have a sword in the belt, too. At least a short one.
Good thing that wasn’t in the knee!
…sorry, skyrim profile. I had to.
We understand, but we do not forgive!
Oh hey! I was wondering when we would find out about that one (late?) demon of sorrow who was sent to kill Genchu but not Yori!
Oh yeah! I’d actually kinda forgotten about that guy! Whoops.
Alex, my zoology classes were a long time ago, but do wolves have claws like that? They have toenails, but not claws like cats. I could see him, say, biting Genchu in the butt like a bad pun, but I think raking claw attacks only work if they’re Sabrewulf clan.
You know, ID, you’re right, it’s definitely a feline thing, and I think even as I was drawing it I’m like “this seems awkward and implausible”. That’s not a dig at Joe, he didn’t write “and then the dog scratches Genchu’s back,” that was all my doing. But you’re really the first to call it. Let’s say that the dog’s owner sharpens their toe nails and teaches them to use their front paws as weapons along with their teeth, why not. Or I could just redraw the first panel since I”m not terrible happy with it! But I probably won’t find the time.
Ah, no worries. I’m the wanker that’s out here nitpicking reality in a fantasy story. Carry on, don’t mind me!
Ah , but these are NINJA wolves! Totally acceptable logic.
Wait! How can wolves shoot arrows? Don’t they need like… thumbs or something? I know I’m missing something here, but I can’t quite put my finger on it…
“Everything was fine for the Asian hunter/gatherer tribes until the wolf packs learned the use of the bow. What really change the balance of the food chain is when the squirrel learned how to use gunpowder and it’s application in heavy weaponry such as mortars and long range cannons…” from the upcoming docudrama “Bambo: from Disney to Action hero”
Wolves and Genchu: “Uwaaa uwaa uwaaa!” VKO!
Genchu is the Michel Vicks of Japan.
PETA was very upset about the dog killing.
“Ow, my shoulder, I need that for swording!”
