Mild world-building here~ incidentally, the 'Blue Mana' Cain mentions way back in the first chapter in strip 5 ("I ran out of Blue Mana!") is Mana that can be ingested directly to produce a spell, as opposed to converting it naturally from Spirit, which takes time to replenish itself.

Ooh, that wouldn't be a bad idea if either Kylie or Cain knew how to use one!

Pointy end away from user. ;-)

Awww, nasty stuff...

I hope they can cut that seal off or destroy it...

Hahaha, you'll see... ;)

A side-note: most 'seals' in SF are protected with bandages wrapped around tightly. Kylie's sword (now broken) had a wrap, and so does Nemi's dagger... Sho is practically a mummy, so that might give an idea as to how many seals he's got on him. :P

Will reveal over time more information about seals~

Good build for an assassin seeing as most everyone we've seen so far of any note able strength seems to use one of the two described forms of spirit.... (except maybe Nemi who is just really sneaky)

Hehehe, yep~! Well, not every occupation is Spirit-reliant... like Sho's, for example. :P

As a thief, Nemi similarly doesn't rely very much on Spirit, though she does have a couple of skills under her belt that require it.

But as you said, she is also very sneaky. XD;

Really liking that magic/energy system and how you explained it. Makes sense and well thought out. really fits with everything you got going on in this world I think.

Thank you, Low! :D I'm happy you find it sensible!

Looking at this page again though, I wish I'd made the text bigger XD;;;; oh vey!
