Let the record show that my script to Alex did not say “Then Ina glares at Yori with a face that will haunt me to the end of my days, and possibly longer”.

That, my friends, is the sort of collaborative creative freedom that goes on in our comic making process.

Sometimes it results in unexpectedly awesome lines (Ina’s adlib on this very page is one such example). Sometimes, it guarantees that I will never sleep again…

  • Pascalle Lepas

    Oh, Yori…

    • Astralfury

      It’s Zap and Reona all over again haha

  • Hfar

    Ina: “*sigh* Listen up blockhead. I. Like. YOU! Not your clan! YOU! Now if that’s not clear, let me spell it out for you! One day, *I*! Am! Going! To! Jump! Your! Bones! M’kay?”

    • Kid Chaos

      “Yes, dear.” 😍

    • Derkins

      right since the whole “clan union” think was so convincing for her, before they met.

  • Leo

    My goodness, that was painful to read.

    Competition is tough, but I vote Yori for most unwise sentence in NN4B.

    • Kid Chaos

      Yori does have a nasty habit of catching foot-in-mouth disease. 😛

  • Arkone Axon

    He DOES make a good point. After all, he’s showing a responsible attitude. He’s not saying he doesn’t want her or that he doesn’t love her, merely that he thinks their union won’t help either of their clans.

    He’s wrong, of course. But you can’t fault him for trying to do what’s right – for all his relatives and dependents AND her own. If she’s been maturing as well, this is her cue to tell him how their union can actually help the situation, rather than yell at him for now being selfishly focused on his own desires ahead of the needs of his people.

  • Eric

    The, “ten-thousand feet of the ancestors,” technique is normally considered impossible to survive, but Yori doesn’t seem bound by the limits of mere mortals when it comes to fitting feet in his mouth.

  • Crowlitch

    Yori has such a way with words, very charming!

  • Vahn Nille

    I’ll admit, I’m pretty haunted too.

  • Scott Henry

    That glare face is ugly. She’s not that hot. He could do way better. Plus shes bitchy. Why are the men such pansies in this? Why not have a man who DOESN’T fall for the bitchy girl? Instead he gets way more confident and goes for a nicer woman with less immaturity, bitchiness and self esteem issues! I mean it would be far more original…

    • clogboy

      You are only partially right. He’s a nice guy (and you know what they say about those), but he definitely isn’t a pushover.
      When you’re in a commited relationship, you get to run certain games. The whole ‘jealous wife / don’t take me for granted’ thing is one of those. Plus, this is a comedy story, you’re looking into this way too seriously 😉

    • SlugFiller

      She did push back an army, and while she’s been needing rescues for most of their relationship, she’s done the occasional rescuing of Yori herself. So it’s not as if she’s completely worthless. Temperamental? Yes. But not worthless.

    • cu

      Do you know how difficult is it to find a girl that does like sweaty samurais these days? He can turn a blind eye to a little crankiness.

    • Xinef

      The thing is, he is happy with her. So as long as this is true, why should he care if she’s bitchy?

      Also, if you’re looking for someone in NN4B who might get into a relationship with a less bitchy girl, look at Ken. Yumiko might have her issues, but for an orphan who witnessed the slaughter of her entire family, she’s holding quite well.

      … but then Ken is bitchy :/

      *Xinef gets hit with a KADOOOSH to the face*

      • IDPounder


      • Crowlitch

        The gentlest Ken punch you can imagine

        • Xinef

          FAKE, there’s no sound effect!

          • TheGorram Batguy

            That text IS the sound effect.

  • drealm2459

    he got the “LOOK” men who are married know it well. It is when you say something or do something you feel should be said or done, and instead you find the wife looking at you in much this way. You freeze much like a deer in headlights hoping your death shall be swift and painless. or at the very least you will get some blankets to go w/ your pillow when you sleep on the couch that night…

  • Xinef

    Ina trying real hard to look cute? … she almost succeeded.

    • Flaming Squirrel

      In panel 6, right? Woo, what a hottie!

      • Xinef

        She DID succeed on the high temperature part 😛

  • Flaming Squirrel

    Yori: “The ability to grow and shrink my pupils according to the conversation is a skill that has been passed down through the Wataro clan FOR GENERATIOOOOOOONS!!!!”

  • cu

    Oooooh, now I get it.

    Yori: “It’s not that I don’t like you Ina, you are such a sweet, understanding, caring girl. But you’ll have to marry my brother. Yes. For peace in Japan. Too bad, eh? Funny how these things work out. Well, it was great while it lasted, I’ll see you around.” Runs. SFX: “KTHXBAI!”

    Ina: “Uh?”

    Cho: “A wise artichoke must migrate from the fence if it wishes to avoid the elephant falling on its side.”

    • chicky joey

      Just for the the Cho quote, have a like.

    • Nos Rin aka CTCO

      I get it. I get the cho line.

  • Sunwu

    *price is right losing horn*

  • Derkins

    that stink face!

  • Auctorian .

    Yori: Our marriage would mean nothing!
    Ina: NOTHING!?
    Sulu: Shields! SHIELDS!

    • suburban_samurai

      *Praxis effect*

  • foducool

    another one of yori’s blindspots : not knowing when to shut his mouth XD

  • Chromoid


  • Kid Chaos

    Why am I going through Bushido withdrawal? I need my Bushido! 😈

    • suburban_samurai

      It’s coming! I went on kind of a long vacation, and was only able to get one extra page done when two were needed to cover the full absence! IT WAS A TRAGEDY EXCEPT FOR THE VACATION PART, THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD!

      • Kid Chaos

        Don’t stop not dying, Suburban Samurai! 😜

  • pydsigner

    And yet again, we see Cho to wise to vacate the premises.

    Also…. AAAAAAAAH that face O_O

    Also….. Noooooooo caught up :(

    • suburban_samurai

      If only you’d read it all slower! Alas, life is full of regrets! I, for one, regret that I can’t update more than once a week. But mayhaps in the near future I can change that.

  • The Frogg

    Oh- ouch. But true tho huh

  • Nos Rin aka CTCO


  • BobbyBG33k

    Looks can kill folks!

  • Frank Royce Harr

    Damnit, Frederick, you’re not just a job to her. You’re also a martial artist. That’s good enough (apparently).
