I always worry about people who smile when they’re holding a gun!

It’s been a late night, but I’m sure I’ll write more here tomorrow (well, technically later today).

  • Turul

    The young tech genius!

  • Wolfy098

    He actually felt vaguely cool here. Character development? Or am I just going insane?

    • clogboy

      When duty turns into purpose.

    • Kid Chaos

      Do you really want me to answer that question? 😎

    • David

      what’s wrong with both?

    • suburban_samurai

      Eijiro’s going to be the Jaime Lannister of NN4B. Total 180!

  • endplanets


    • suburban_samurai

      Eijiro’s Call of Duty games skills a m4st3r L337. He even mostly refrains from racial slurs.

  • Sunwu

    Ejiro get your gun! get your gun! get your gun!
    Take it on the run! on the on run!
    Hear your daddy call you and me
    Make Wataro clan safe and free!
    Hurry right away No delay, go today
    Make your daddy glad
    To have had such a lad
    Tell your brother not to pine
    His mistakes make you next in line….

    Famers! we’ll kill some farmers! And we wont come back until theres no more Farmers over there!
    (“Over there” by George M. Cohan)

  • Flaming Squirrel

    Eijiro… stop with the puppy dog eyes. You’re not allowed to look that innocent after just firing a gun. Remember that face you made when you did secret ninja deals behind your father’s back? Make that face again.

    • suburban_samurai

      Well, now he’s got a new toy. How could he not smile?

  • Galeden

    I worry more about people who are smiling for no reason…

    • suburban_samurai

      I often smile for no reason and people call me optimistic!

      • Galeden

        I suppose it depends on what Kind of smile it is.

        • Kid Chaos

          That’s a Slasher Smile if I ever saw one. :(

  • LazyReader

    Is it working?

    • suburban_samurai


    • Bree

      No, you need to turn the safety off.

    • 627235

      It should not need to be said but: Don’t do that! If you need to take a look into the barrel, at least make sure enough light gets in there.

      • 627235

        Seriously, though, don’t point a loaded gun at anything you don’t want to destroy. Treat any gun as loaded. And remember that not only actual bullets are dangerous. At that range, blanks will kill you and even with “toy” guns (say, soft air), this is dangerous.

  • Hfar

    Ohhh, bango bango bango I don’t won’t to leave the Wataro, oh no no no no no!
    Bangle, bungle, bingo, ‘m so happy with bushido, I refuse to go.
    Don’t want no ninja, false monks, Senshin, henshin, I make it clear.
    That no mater how they try to coax him
    I’ll stay right here!

  • Not Real

    Not shown: Replacement ambassador taking a shot to the heart.

    • suburban_samurai

      You got me, I laughed out loud when I read this.

    • Xinef

      He shouldn’t have had those flying lessons anyway.

      • Not Real

        I think that humor flew over most readers’ heads.

  • Arkone Axon

    I notice something from this page. Eijiro… the way he was handling this weapon. It showed considerable intelligence. I don’t just mean the way he figured out how to fire it. I mean the way he makes a point of not aiming the business end at himself or anyone else. He REMEMBERED that the loud nasty death comes out of that end, and he made certain that when he figured out how to make it work, no one would get hurt. That’s pretty damned sensible. It ranks up there with a Larry Niven story where the hero figured out how an alien weapon worked AND how to make it self destruct (so he could trick an enemy into killing himself with it).

    • suburban_samurai

      Eijiro’s a plucky kid! Also Ringworld is a very weird book.

  • Ido Jeorchim-Litman

    Don’t kill me for it, but I actually like Ejiro.

    • suburban_samurai

      This is not an undesired outcome!

      • Kid Chaos

        He’s the kind of guy you love to hate. 😎

    • Discorvid

      Eijiro grew on me, a bit like a benign tumor. A kind of adorable benign tumor

  • Chris Kotthoff

    Now this kid gets it.

    • suburban_samurai

      Guns are the solution to all our problems!

      • Chris Kotthoff

        *Charles Bronson approves this message*

  • Da’Zlein

    Look out, Nataku! This up-and-comer is about to take your job with his innovative ideas!

  • Xinef

    Soon the entire Wataro army will be rockin’ Mad Max style, guns blazing, led by a maniacal youngun!

  • Dusty Coyote

    Kabango Unchained

  • Ladon

    I have caught up. At long last. I’m dissapointed I’m too late for 666 but happy to be joining the clearly epic readers of this clearly epic comic. Can you believe that when I first discovered this comic I thought these guys were the heroes of the story? Y’know, because this was the first page I saw. But wait… They always say go with your first impression… Mein Gott! Eijero and his party are the noble protagonists trying to stop the misguided “main cast” from preventing the glorious and necessary unification of Japan under honorable Daimo Wataro!

  • Falling Star

    …Shit, they’ve caught on.

  • Insane Disciple

    A little kid figured it out. Crap

  • LazyReader

    Actually Contrary to popular belief, Japanese had well versed in guns and cannons, they were just expensive.

    Europe on the other hand, took the idea of the cannon and in a century were making war with them.
