Oh I think he’s thinking right =o
Bugging out the window is a classic response to relationship issues after all 🙂
Poor Ai, she must convince Kohta that she and Haoqi mean no harm to him or to his family and friends. She is really trying to fit.
She is indeed, and she has been pretty accommodating to Kohta during this period too, especially considering she abandoned her home and what is like a family to her to find him and be with him.
And that’s not mentioning all the other things she’s given up because he’d disapprove, like sleeping with other people, walking around naked all the time, occasionally sucking the life-force out of people… little things sure, but it was her way of life 😛
He too need to make a compromise, not just her.
A relationship is all about compromise, though to be fair, he had been giving up more than he knew for this relationship for a while now 😛
Yes, and she hide truth from him
So ‘compromise’ which Lena talking about, would be like ‘compromise’ between thief and his victim
Or like compromise in a marriage where one partner has needs or interests the other needs to be aware of and understand.
It is hard to be aware or understand the needs if other ‘half’ not say the word about it until being directly asked and simply satiated own needs in secret + hurting you
Is it that unrealistic for someone in a relationship to hide an uncomfortable truth from their partner for fear of how they will react? 😛
‘Hurting you’ mean also ‘stole from you’
Ahh, so really this should be settled in small claims court? 😛
It is totally realistic, yet it will mean that it lead to break the trust
Abusive marriage is realistic as well, but nobody will tell that is good…except abuser
Abuse might be too much there dude, what she did was bad, and hurt Kohta without his knowledge or consent, but using the term abuse in that context has a very specific meaning.
Whatever Ai did it was not with the clear intention of harming Kohta for its own sake to bully him into staying in an unequal and oppressive relationship.
What she did was wrong, but it wasn’t for selfish/short sighted reasons, it was the result of a misunderstanding/false assumptions.
I said mostly that both option are realistic
“Kohta! You’re not even wearing pants!” should stop him pretty quickly lol, Ai should just hide his pants somewhere so he can’t leave the room XD I can see why he’s angry, they didn’t tell him the truth, true, but he’s not even USING his mana, he doesn’t cast magic, I can’t remember the last time he had to do that. He’s always using his sword! It’ll go to waste (and he’ll lose his lover too, kinda important she stays with him and alive)! In all seriousness, if all Ai’s doing is sleeping with him only, and only taking HIS mana, and not draining other people’s lives/mana, shouldn’t he be happy? She’s not wreaking havoc on the world, she’s staying monogamous with him too. Though I guess she should have explained everything to him from the beginning and asked permission (which I think this boils down to).
Pff, like not having any pants has stopped him in the past 😛 http://kohtathesamurai.com/?comic=chapter-07-page-03
But anyway, what you say makes sense, but this is a complicated situation, made even more complicated because they are in a relationship. Whilst to us it seems like Ai made the best choice and wasn’t actually trying to harm Kohta, indeed she was trying to prevent herself from harming many others, it might not look that way to Kohta.
If I was surprised by the revelation that my significant other had been sucking the life-force out of me I would probably make some very rash and poor decisions, even if I could be shown the logic of it when the situation had settled down enough for them to properly chat about it.
Kohta is such a sissy, he can’t even cast a spell right, he needs to get down from his high horses.
You seem to use some principle of Taoism as your canvas for magic, am I right ?
To a degree, and it’s certainly how Kohta and the people from his region of the world would likely view it, but more likely in this setting it depends much more about how you view magic and where it’s from.
Each school of magic has it’s own rules and beliefs and own manner of accessing magical energy to power spells and such, however it’s most likely that the magical source is the same throughout.
For instance a Mage would say they are drawing power from within themselves of from an external source to power their spells, whereas a priestess would say that her faith in her gods means they grant her the power to perform miracles such as healing and so on.
We would like to welcome the newest member to the singles club, Kohta.
Well it’s not before time, none of his relationships so far seem to have lasted all that long 🙁
But this isnhis first official invite.
Hehe, I would’ve thought he’d become a recurring member by now?
He was single but he wasn’t part of the club.
Sounds snooty of the club not to have invited him before now.
When you single, you do what you want.
Sounds like a very casual club 🙂
So we are just gonna forget Haoqi is on the prowl for some loving/mana/life right now. because i would think that is an important issue.
Nah, we’ve got important relationship issues to discuss! 😛
But yeh you’re right, that is probably something to be concerned about, however it’s likely that Haoqi both knows not to drain a person on purpose, and also after her fun with Kohta, she’s likely pretty sated for now.
I guess she could drain mana from animals.
She can indeed, and not just animals but from certain plants too, that’s how her people live in the wild when they don’t have access to fonts of magical energy.
However the problem is that these simpler creatures have a much lower amount of mana than sentients do, which doesn’t make them as efficient food sources.
The she could drain more from many plants/animals and nobody could accuse her of wronged Kohta
Yes, but it would also make her a lot weaker (and less likely to help Kohta/keep up with the party) and it is very conspicuous, and likely to lead to many awkward questions. It’d be like that bit in Avatar The Last Airbender when Katara sucked up all the water from those plants, it leaves a bad sight behind.
If she would tell him that, nobody could accuse her for anything :O
If she would keep that n secret, then…animal and plants for her
Yeh but it makes it a little odd when travellers along their path find large sections of desiccated plant life 😛
It would take time, before they will connecnt it with group
Not necessarily, especially if you have a bunch of inbred hicks, some strangers blow in to town, weird things start to happen, and it’s not long before they’re burning witches 😛
Yea, but she is made of water so she is all good there. Suck on that rednecks. And then they could try drowning her.
But if they try to burn her, and she’s made of water, wont that boil her?
Well I was completely wrong, I thought Kohta would actually listen. Also what about those crusade-looking people in the desert? I wonder what happend to them.
Kohta might be a bit loopy right now, he’s been drained of a lot of his life energy and maybe not in his right mind 🙁
As for the desert dwelling crusader people? who knows, but I’m sure it’s fine, it’s not likely it’s anything of world shattering importance that will eventually suck in our heroes into some sort of world saving and/or destroying eternal prophetic battle of destiny 😀
Oh, come on…Concept of guy who naked jump from window of his lover room is kinda cliche XDDD
And therefore right up Kohta’s ‘Drama Queen’ alley 😛
Yeah, but usually that’s because the husband is coming home.
I said it once and I say again
It is not about what Ai taking from. Or it is usufull for him
Thing is about the fact that she not told him or ask about permission!!!
Even if fact that he want to jump naked from window was very idiotic (probally added to show his youthfull/unexperienced/naive personality), Kohta have full right to be angry/sad/any other negative emotion
‘We thought that we could take some and you wouldn’t miss it’ – who gave her right to decide what Kohta will miss and what not?
Hmm….KohtaxAi shippers will probally start to hate me XD
Yet I still find Ai being much better person than sociopathic, manipulative Khali XP
Hehe, somehow I’m not surprised by that mate 😛
I think I can hear the mob gathering their pitchforks 😛
Hehe don’t worry dude, seems to me that’s an entirely acceptable read of the situation, it might not be the only way to read it, but Ai was in the wrong to do something to Kohta without his knowledge or consent, even if it could be assumed considering the alternative (i.e. that she starve or feed off of others).
On other webcomics site, when I said opinion similar to that…fandumb react badly
No worries man everyone’s opinion is valid here 😀
Just so long as it’s not too extreme, meant to antagonise or just being a dick about it 😛
“Kohta! You’re not wearing pants, Kohta! Don’t run away naked and leave me all alone… again…”
Wow you’re right, this is starting to turn into a pattern for them 😮
Doesn’t mana regenerates or is it a limite de amount for each person?
It does regenerate, it just takes a little time, though of course it improves with rest and food/drink intake 🙂
She thinks he wouldn´t miss the mana, is she trying to say that Kohta isn´t very good at this magic thing?
Hehe, that might be an underlying accusation here.
But then again, are you saying she’s wrong? 😛
Eh, no she does have a point. But it´s still not very nice of her.
Yeh, she really should have asked 🙂
See she does care, now here’s us phoning it in for her. “No, don’t. Someone will see you, then you’ll get to fuck another sexy woman.” On second thought I do care, bring on the next sexual conquest.
I’m sensing a theme here 😛
Hehe, how cruel… and funny 😀
