Omg, I don't like this woman~ D=< Booo! Boooo! Someone smack her with a 2x4! *is hit* XD;
I'm worried for Amelia in this kind of situation, tho... Her friend is worried about her, genuinely, but at the same time, even she doesn't believe Amelia can see death =I I guess not too many people would readily believe what they can't see, either...

"Or maybe she is a witch.. and she frolics with ghosts!"
says the woman who is playing with something that definitely resembles a ouija board. Geeze, Noelle. I find it hard to believe you can even see that sawdust in Amelia's cornea when you have such a large plank impairing your own eyesight.
((ps I LOVE JOLIE!! A LOT!! SHE IS SO CUTE AND SWEET!!))

This is why people make me mad =( They can't see things and then they get all panicked and say a person's "crazy" =I I hope nothing too bad happens... *worry*
Lol at the skit with Amelia's skull XD Azriel seems to like it X3 "Hey girl... you got good bone structure~" XD

I wonder if you polish his face and armor, which would be shinier? XD
Mrs. Dragmire (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 03/30/13 | Reply
Finally! I was hoping someone would get the reference!
I agree, even I have a weak spot for Azriel in that armor~
Otaku Legend | Posted 03/30/13 | Reply
Oh I love the design of the armors
LMAO! Ohhh.... Israfel... XD; LMAO!!! Lonely Island reference~ You are so great for that X3
Ooh~ I'm so curious to see when Amelia discovers what Azriel meant~ Yaaaay for Valle Lacrimarum~
Also, Azriel looks very dashing in that armor X3 <3

Oh, I don't know if you've upgraded to GIMP 2.8 or not, but 2.8 has some problems with tablets, as far as I know it isn't registering pressure sensitivity! I ran into that problem, it looks like it'll be fixed in the 3.0 version. lol sorry that was random, but i hope it helps.

Is it Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich, great grandfather to Czar Nicholas Romanov?
Mrs. Dragmire (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 03/09/13 | Reply
Thanks! I've been using GIMP to make a lot of my screen tones with the newsprint effect. I'll probably make a tutorial for it because it is a great tool for making online manga!

mooore please. :) Im so captivated by your story I love it. you should make some monies of this baby. also I love the way you tone your manga... i'm enviouse I need to learn to do such things.
Otaku Legend | Posted 03/04/13 | Reply
Aah, I thought I got it! ;u; The date was when Alexander II became emperor. (Which makes sense, now that I Googled the right answer. xD) I'll leave it for someone else since I already took a guess, though. :)
xD Random frilly things are cute, too. But the historical accuracy definitely aids to the feel of the comic! :)
Mrs. Dragmire (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 03/04/13 | Reply
Good guess but nope! The date March 2, 1855 has no relevance to him and he played no role in the war in Azriel mentions though the Archduke did in a different one
(this is starting to feel like a history pop quiz)
Oops, sorry! I meant great grandfather! You were right about my idol though, so that should make it a million times easier.
Her dresses are going to be different from this point on because I'm striving for historical accuracy. The dress Amelia is wearing was inspired by an actual fashion plate from the mid 1850's. When I first started this comic I just drew random frilly things!
Otakuite++ | Posted 03/04/13 | Reply
I'm gonna say it's Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the namesake of one of my favorite bands.
Czar Nicholas II? :D I think. Or if Nicholas II is your idol, it's his grandfather Czar Alexander II. /googled
By the way, I really love Amelia's outfit in this chapter! :) It's different from the dresses you usually draw, but it's really beautiful.
Always looking forward to new pages~ :)

I wanted Amelia to be more afraid by the angel's threatening nature rather than their physical appearance (even though it would be a little scary to see a man-bird hybrid)
You sound a lot like my sister and I! We don't really have an attraction to regular guys either XD
Oh jeez... I didn't think she get that scared after meeting Azriel... Perhaps she had a bit too much tea prior to this meeting =>.>=
Israfel is kinda hot XD *is hit* Yup, I guess I'm weird going for the ones that look less human X3 *is totally going for a turian in Mass Effect* Still, Azriel, ftw~
Samael seemed like a nice guy until he pointed out Amelia's accident =>.>= I'm definitely curious about him, though as I can't quite guage his mannerisms just from this X3 He does seems more polite than Israfel, though =oxo=
Looking forward to more~ =3

Someone else needs to comment soon, or I won't be able to comment anymore XD; Amelia looks like she took Azriel's robe and is happily wearing it going "Lookat mee~! I'm the Angel of Death~!" XD

I think it's a sort of compulsive quirk. Originally it was just an experimental thing when Azriel's character was first drawn
Otaku Legend | Posted 04/18/12 | Reply
This is one of the few reasons I even bother to check this site anymore, honestly. XD I don't look at much else. Please keep it coming! And also, does Azriel intentionally refer to himself in third person or is it just a verbal tic of his? XD Just wondering~
Digital Neko (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 01/21/12 | Reply
I bet she looks for a sale at the market, too XD lol
I really like this story so far =D Is it weird that I have a tiny crush on Azriel? XD; He just seems rather gentlemanly and protective X3 lolz I'm looking forward to reading about why he follows Amelia around X3 Because he luuuurves her =eue= *is hit* I liked that one mini comic where the nude pics fell out of his pocket XD lol that was priceless X3 And i thought so too at one point XD lolz (Although it's quite possible he's seen her naked... he is the Grim Reaper XD) I also like how he refers to himself as "The Destroyer" X3 He's adorable like that XD
I do think she [Amelia] might be a little bit misunderstood and selfish. Cuz there are plenty of selfish people who are that way due to certain circumstances and eventually soften up xD Lol, how many people can casually talk to Death? XD I guess she was that lonely on the inside x3
I'm so looking forward to more =^_^=

Their relationship reminds me of Light and Ryuk's.
her anut was a witch
I can't tell if he has attachments to her or not
I guess the reason he's following her around has to do with her death fate or something.

Ah! I'm such a huge fan of your manga. Your art is very detailed.

Latin is amazing! I want to take a class...

As soon as I read this, my friend called and asked me if we were supposed to copy down the latin phrases on the whiteboard in latin class and I replied, "THE DESTROYER HAS NO NEED FOR THE STUDIUM CHIROGRAPHON."

I draw frills just as a bunch of scribbles on the edges of clothes. the wilder and curvier they are the more flouncy they look
Feel free to call him the grim reaper, that's who he is supposed to be. I called him Azriel so he'd have a proper name (the "grim reaper" gets kinda long)
I wanted the entire setting to be kinda French
