Technically speaking, they didn't find his body. Only his chewed-up collar… Which should mean, there could be a chance that Kuma is still out there, somewhere.

This makes me want to comfort them and then go off and hunt the ones that murdered kumas. As a bonus, the destiny sword will be the last thing they'll see before the Abyss takes them.

How long must the emotional torture last? 

The other night I actually was thinking about how we might never see Kuma's face again; almost feels like I lost a real life friend. That just how good this comic is!

Little do we know what Arven is up to.  I am expecting the unexpected to happen.  All was found was the collar and bell, but no body.  It could mean it was lost in the scuffle.  Knowing Arven, she has some surprising twist to the story.  I don't think he is dead.  C'mon, everyone thought Motyl was dead, but she is still around.  Arven has something planned! (undoubtedly)

You know the part that makes this heavier? The fact that he died with guilt and regret, he never got to see Motyl recover and have her say it wasn't his fault, C.Y. never got to make it up to him, or more to herself, for their last words and how they ended off and will probably always blame herself for his death, had she stuck by him vs leave him alone, he wouldn't of run off and got himself killed. It's very heavy because it's not just the death of a comrade, it's the weight they have to carry for the rest of their lives, the guilt of what if's and grief and blaming themselves for what they couldn't predict. And honestly, I love that in a story, not every death has resolve and there's still things they should have said that they'll never get to.

The thing about death is the pain never goes away, you just make room for it.

Eh, according to that one comment you once gave me when I mentioned Kuma being poisoned... I have a theory but won't say much more JUST IN CASE I'm right and I don't want to ruin the surprise for everyone else. Though if you did go in the direction I'm thinking you are, kudos to you. You picked a very lovable character to use for it thus causing maximum emotional impact. I for now will refuse to show emotion until everything is cleared up, only then will I mourn for my favorite character.

Flora-Tea Featured By Owner Edited Oct 7, 2017  Student Digital Artist
(and @Rahuto)  I honestly agree that he isn't dead. If he really was, this would kind of be a pretty insulting way for him to go, with basically no one really caring about him until the last minute when Heilo goes to look for him. There wasn't really a big air of grief or panic in the pages that showed the morning after he went missing, and they even treated Kuma as an afterthought with the sword missing coming to concern first. Then, he "died" off screen without there even being a body to confirm his death-- the ultimate sign of a fake death of a major character in stories. XD

But if this was a real death, it'd be pretty sad to make such an uneventful way for a major character to go and it'd feel more like he's being tossed away than dying for any real reason imo
Reply
:icontessu-chan:
Tessu-chan Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I agree. Most likely if there isn't a body or the death isn't shown, they didn't actually die. The death of a major character should always be shown. It would be such a sad (in a bad way) way for an important character to die like that.

But either way, I still find it odd that Hielo just decided he was dead and didn't even search for the body. Kuma was his best friend. Even if I knew I might see them ripped to shreds, I would wanna see the actual corpse to confirm what has happened to my best friend.
Reply
:iconflora-tea:
Flora-Tea Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, exactly!

And I know, right? If his mind was calm enough to not attack the guys who "killed" him, he should've been able to think "Where exactly IS he!?" and at least attempt to look for the body. 

It also still really bothers me how Kuma's been treated as a character in this part of the comic. Firstly, he got two scenes of basically being tortured by someone. He was stabbed and then he was poisoned. Then, when he is depressed and his backside is turning black, none of the characters care to check on him or bring up that they're concerned about his body starting to change color, as well as his depression.

No one can say "well they were mad at him for what he did to Motyl!" because everyone on the team knows his personality and knows he would never hurt any of his friends no matter what, so they would know (or SHOULD have known) that he had to have been possessed or controlled or something for him to have gone mad like that.

This should have made it so the team was even more determined to keep an eye on him but nope, let him sulk at the mouth of the cave-- poisoned and depressed. There's no way he'd do something stupid after everything that's happened! There's no possible way he could get hurt or is suffering from whatever has happened/is happening to him, that we can all clearly see! And it's not like every member of the team was busy with something or anything

C.Y. checked on him, yes, but then for some reason (or no good reason at all) didn't stay with him or was that determined to tell him she's worried about his body starting to change colors. And then, the next day when he's missing, the characters treat it as a mild inconvenience instead of actually being worried about him or the slightest bit panicked (except for that very, very brief moment with C.Y. being like "Oh no! Shouldn't have left him alone!) Worst yet, they show major concern for finding the sword before they really get to  wanting to look for Kuma, making it seem as if they only want Kuma back because he still has the sword with him.

All of this makes the build-up to this page seem as if Kuma really doesn't matter much at all to the team. It feels like they didn't earn their right to be mourning because they showed that they didn't really care that much in the first place. sifhsafsoohinsdgsdg

I'm so sorry for the rant XD This comic is great and all but I feel as though the character interactions and priorities are becoming more and more questionable and inappropriately handled as of late, making things harder and harder to take seriously!

:icontessu-chan:
Tessu-chan Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah, I can agree that C.Y. should've done more. And when Orca was running to tell the others Kuma was gone, she just stopped and let the others talk calmly??? Like if I was her, I'd been like "Shut up, this is more important than anything else right now". She really didn't seem all that alarmed that one of her teammates had just disappeared. Especially Kuma, with all of his injuries and sudden almost killing a friend.

I can agree that the character interaction could be better. All of the characters seem to be more interested in themselves than anyone else. They don't seem like a team to me, just a bunch of characters forced to be with each other. I see more believable actions from Jackal's group. Sure, they don't seem close, but they're not really supposed to. They're supposed to come off as self-centered and spiteful because that's what they are. But the heroes come off as pretty spiteful at each other, too. Sure, they can have arguments and disagreements, that's just realistic, but they should have more good moments than bad. As of now, I can't really see any deep connections between the whole group. Sure, Hielo cares about Kuma and Mothyl and Led and C.Y. used to be almost in a relationship but that's it. They have friendship with one character and that's it. They don't seem connected to each other. I really hope that changes.

Flora-Tea Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2017  Student Digital Artist
IKR? That was so strange to me. I think that alone really made me raise my brow and question how much of an emergency Kuma disappearing actually was to the team. None of the team (except C.Y., but only briefly) seemed alarmed about Kuma's disappearance. Heck, I don't think anyone ever said anything about how Kuma was poisoned. Kuma should've been given just as much attention and concern surrounding him as Motyl but he was just kind of shoved away and ignored for the most part for no reason.

Yes, that's exactly what it seems like. Yes to everything you just said XD It really does feel as though this isn't really a team of friends, just people who were shoved together and are only so close in the same place because the comic states they're supposed to and no other reason. The characters seem to latch onto one other character and then practically act as if no one else on the team exists or has much value. I really hope this changes, too. I've already, for the most part, stopped being able to be invested with the protagonists because of how they, themselves aren't even emotionally invested in their own group, only whoever their crush is or whoever is their "best" friend at whatever moment in time is convenient to the comic.

At least Africa is still going strong with its character interactions, priorities, and development.

Yes, I agree with everything you've just said. Maybe if they find Kuma/he comes back, they'll realise how terrible it was to think that one of them had died and grow more close bonds.

Yes, Africa is going very strong! I feel the dread the characters feel and every time the cubs are in trouble, I hope they won't get hurt. I can't really say the same about the Chakra characters because it feels like the action doesn't give enough time for character growth and as such, I don't feel as connected to them. On the other hand, I feel Africa's desperation. I feel her love for her cubs. And the cubs are allowed to be disconnected from the things that are happening around them because they're so young, it's only natural for them to be a little ignorant and not understand everyting.

That would be nice!  I also really, really hope this wasn't just a cheap way to get rid of Kuma so the Led/C.Y. ship could be in favor again...I don't think Arven would do that, but that would make his death (if it's real) even more of an insult to Kuma XD

YES! Africa is so emotionally engaging that way, and you can really feel and see the emotions and points of view of everyone clearly, and they all have believable motives which show through them!

Yeah. A collar could easily be ripped off in a battle. And the amount of blood all around didn't seem fatal to me. Sure, they had to rip the sword from his belly but this is fantasy. Anything could happen.

Ripping a sword from somebody’s belly musnt be fatal too , you know how many soldiers survived after they hat a bayonet or knife in their chest...
Closecombat wounds musnt be deadly, the germans in ww2 even had a Nahkampf Abzeichen which you got if you survived one or more close combat fights

Of cause anything can happen in a fantasy story, Rahuto could appear and heal the dude ;‘D lol

so many questions... I don't know what to think about this, on one hand the demons must have open him to take the sword and considering the blood loss, in which state the place where Hielo found the collar was and how bad that wound must be, survival is unlikely, however we still haven't seen the corpse and I don't know but it's strange that his coat turning black was emphasized few pages ago all for nothing. I don't know if he's dead or not, maybe the Kuma we know and love is dead but his body will turn into another entity ? I don't know, I can only wait and see, but there is definitely something weird about all this OwO

And they will continue to do so for god knows how long, until they finally maybe get told that he won't be coming back. Fucking hell.Depressed - from pack .
