We had a great time at ECCC2015! I’d talk about it more but I stayed up late finishing the page, which is already a day late… And now I’m gonna go pass out why not. BUT THE PAGE IS UP and I’m pretty happy with it! Matrix continues to pummel Ken, although she’s switched to using words, HARSH.

    Better be careful, Ken. I have a feeling the lady might get a bit ruthless with you if you start endangering her bet…

  • Unhooked

    “They’ve got this crazy idea about not watching their friends get murdered. It’s annoying, I know.”

    The best part is, with Matrix, you have no idea if she’s being snarky and sarcastic or just talking straight when she says that…

    • Kid Chaos

      So, Matrix is trying (in her own special way) to encourage Ken to get some more training. I agree! The Big Giant Swords (it’s a TV show, check it out) of the Daisuke Clan are definitely Awesome, But Impractical.

      • Fullmetalpanic

        Nah he just needs to master the ancient arts..
        Absolutely credible sources mention swordmasters stabbing the ground to create enormous tremors, cleaving mountains or jumping high into the air, then diving down with burning swords like falling stars to bring forth devestation upon the evildoers !

        Don’t they teach you guys anything in history class nowadays ?

        • KungFuKlobber

          Credible sources like to hang out with the Credible Hulk.

        • Flaming Squirrel

          You forgot the part where they cut the the entire planet in half.

          • Fullmetalpanic

            That only happens when they get real angry or drunk and can’t control their strength….


        • Xinef

          You can also swing your sword at the air to create waves of ki that will smash universes. Probably. I wonder if it works without air, though.

          • IDPounder

            Probably. It’s a Tao thing.

        • Thiago Kurovski

          He will depart into a journey of self-knowledge where he will meet Genchu and Yumiko, learn the ancient style and then cut Mount Fuji after it’s launched against them by a Ninja!

      • leavescat

        It’s kinda how it had to be done. If someone tells him he sucks, he ignores them and gets mad. If someone kicks his ass, he just says he’ll beat them next time. He needed someone to humiliate him and then say “I could do that because you suck. Because you don’t realize this, you rush at higher level opponents and force your friends to engage. STOP FEEDING YOU ASS!”

    • suburban_samurai

      It’s like a little bit of everything. It’s true enough but she can’t not be sassy about it!

  • charles81

    So you gonna man up and skill up or run away and scare tea merchants?

  • Sunwu

    Matrix: the Dr, Phil, and Oprah of feudal Japan

    • Kid Chaos

      And Jerry Springer, at this rate.

      • Sunwu

        Kenta You are NOT the father!!!

        • Tantryx

          And Maury Povich!

  • Flaming Squirrel

    Not watching their friends get murdered? Pfft. Freaking hipsters.

    • Dusty Coyote

      I played EvE. I’ve watched friends get murdered. I’ve murdered those that thought I was a friend. I’ve gone down that dark twisting path so far I though I’d never come back…. But all that was there was emptiness. A hollow existence that gnaws on whats left of your ragged, bleeding soul.

      When I fought my way back to the light, I was changed. I was a thing of nightmares.I was bathed in blood. My friends. My enemies. My own. I smeared that blood on my black horn-rims and tasted its metal flavor on the froth of my venti vanilla hazelnut agave coconut milk mocha. Call me hipster. Maybe it will help you.

      • anononya

        Murdered, in EvE? Not really. Inconvenienced slightly due to needing to reship and get back to the fight, though.

        • Dusty Coyote

          Yes, because I was being totally serious.

  • Neoriceisgood

    Yeah Ken, get a powerup!

  • MadHatter084

    Matrix speaks just like any old anime master on this page.

    • Xinef

      You mean the part where you have to smack your student’s head saying “baka” before you give them a lesson?

      • MadHatter084

        In my head, she is more like that “cool and wise” type. Like when Tsunade trained Sakura in Naruto. Or Yoruichi training Ichigo in Bleach. I’m not

        • Xinef

          One can be cool and wise and still do the smacking, I think.

          • MadHatter084

            Yeah, agree with you at that. I know more this types than JUST cool and wise. My problem is that I just can’t imagine Matrix smacking Ken .

          • Kid Chaos

            Imagining it!

          • David A. Tatum

            Suddenly, I have this rather naughty image in my head of Matrix, with Ken bent over her knees, giving him a spanking. Yes, yes I can imagine Matrix smacking Ken… (no-one said the smacking had to be on the head, did they?)

          • MadHatter084

            Actually, Xinef said it.
            But man, you didn’t have to write what you just did, now I can’t get this image of my head. Oh my Gosh…

          • suburban_samurai


          • Fullmetalpanic

            not sure if he’d really complain about it though 😀

          • Kid Chaos

            Matrix would certainly enjoy it.

  • Hfar

    I’m now imagining Ken with Adam Jensen’s sunglasses in the third panel.

    • suburban_samurai

      Deus Ex HR is my JAM. Ask and ye shall receive:

      • Hfar

        Holy shit that was fast! Awesome though.

      • Brandenfascher

        *In Adam Jensen voice*: Hfar didn’t ask for this.

  • Derkins

    sexy ninjas ladies have never made so much sense

  • Kensei Seraph

    And now that I’ve read from beginning to end I can honestly say that this is an awesome story and I will be looking forward to the what happens next.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    • suburban_samurai

      This is the ideal response!

  • Da’Zlein

    Yeah, them weirdos that don’t want to see their friends murdered, not like us normal folks that charge recklessly into battle and pray we don’t die…

    • Kid Chaos

      Don’t stop not dyin’, Ken!

  • jasonblackwood

    Well, I read every single page from the beginning within a few hours.
    Excuse me, for I have a 6-page paper to finish.

    • suburban_samurai

      If it’s a six page paper on faux historical action comedy webcomics YOU GOT THIS!

      • Alice L

        I was about to comment “haha, no.”
        Surprisingly, after I thought about it, it’s not that far from that topic.

  • Neska

    Just as long as this goes the “man up, train, and kick some ass alongside your friends!” path and not the “you suck so much, just leave and stay out of everyone’s way” path . . . Ken is awesome, he just needs to have some sense knocked into him!
