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

    • suburban_samurai

      Let’s be fair, only half as good, at best!

      • charles81

        I dunno, granted Cho is blind, but Genchu can do it with no hands.

        • reynard61

          And facing backward!

  • Sunwu

    Hmmm, should he take it out or leave it in?…

    • suburban_samurai

      Leave it in, looks good with the rest of the outfit.

  • KungFuKlobber

    Is Genchu the Glunk That Got Thunk?

  • Hfar

    “Sorry! Was trying to hit the wolf!”

    • suburban_samurai

      Thank you, Concorde.

  • TheMaskedFerret

    Sneak Attack!

  • noisyparker

    Yeah, that’s right… we got bows now. Who’da thunk it?

    • suburban_samurai

      Who brings bows to a sword fight?? The winner, that’s who!

      • John Smith

        Cheating bastard! [And now I have just added “bastard” to my Kindle’s dictionary. I’m so proud.] 😀

        • suburban_samurai

          Oh, well, that’s, like, one of the first words I would’ve added!

  • slogra

    Shoot him with arrows, he’s got a sword!
    …You idiots! We’ve all got swords!

    • suburban_samurai

      Except for that one guy, he’s got ARROWS.

      • yomi

        Arrows shouldn’t hinder you to have a sword in the belt, too. At least a short one.

  • Have a rock

    Good thing that wasn’t in the knee!

    …sorry, skyrim profile. I had to.

    • suburban_samurai

      We understand, but we do not forgive!

  • Little Kingsguard

    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!

    • suburban_samurai

      SSHHHH, spoilers!!

    • Hfar

      Oh yeah! I’d actually kinda forgotten about that guy! Whoops.

  • IDPounder

    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.

    • suburban_samurai

      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.

      • IDPounder

        Ah, no worries. I’m the wanker that’s out here nitpicking reality in a fantasy story. Carry on, don’t mind me!

    • ConMentality

      Ah , but these are NINJA wolves! Totally acceptable logic.

  • Charvale

    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…

    • Jake

      “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”

      • MoveAlongCitizen

        “As the Higgins Boats pulled onto the shore, before the ramps had even fallen, the islanders of Japan knew their time was near… for now they had come, the SEA PEOPLE.”

  • Mike

    Wolves and Genchu: “Uwaaa uwaa uwaaa!” VKO!

  • Scott Henry

    Genchu is the Michel Vicks of Japan.

  • BobbyBG33k

    PETA was very upset about the dog killing.

  • Da’Zlein

    “Ow, my shoulder, I need that for swording!”

  • SotiCoto

    SO KICK!
