Is it just me, or does Zintiel seem disturbingly... stable?

.... I think I must now go through my DVD collection and watch the first giant robot anime that I find. Or two or sixteen of them.

Not just you. Many people commented in last week's strip that it was odd to see Zintel sitting on the sidelines while Marelle charged into battle.

All I can imagine is that this might be a future, but has to be a mirror universe future.

Zint loves the battles, that's what keeps her stable.

'Cause it wouldn't be Utopia if it wasn't filled with giant robot battles. Nerdy XD

Is showing here now. Smile



I wonder if Prism is behind the design of Marelle's Robot


Or did she just mash together some Voltron/Gundam/Dexter designs?




Very Happy

Oh, please. I'm sure Marelle *also* has degrees in advanced robotics, political management and economics, and kicking ass.

And maybe mind control, what with the whole Zintiel business Confused

Ohhh, I get it now. This is what Flaky Pastry would have been like if it was an anime. It's not the future at all!

Bet you Zintiel turns out to be a demon/goddess hybrid who lost her husband, the Prince, after he sacrificed himself to save her centuries earlier from a race of invading demon-aliens.

And Nitrine died because every main character needs to have a dead best friend to motivate them in the fight for justice!

...Now I have an image of Marelle in a Sailor Moon outfit.

I figure Zin is so calm right now for two reasons:

1. Just living in a city where giant robot fights break out frequently and without warning has to be really venom.

2. She doesn't have her own giant robot.

The Great Pastry Chef help us all if she actually got one, though ...

I can understand Nitrene's incredulity... in the future there may well be robots, but damn... they need more weapons on them Very Happy

i wonder if marelle's iron fisted rule began with her failing to lecture a single criminal into submission, and then snowballed with her realizing that he was merely a product of his circumstances and opting to alter said circumstances.

There is no way the city could be truely peaceful or safe with Zintiel as her normal self. Possible Answer:She has some kind of chip in her head that keeps her stable.
Possible Answer 2:400 Years is quite a long time to mellow out.

All Nitrine has to do now is find Marelle's Interociter and destroy it.

Hope she's got her suit on her somewhere.

Last we saw, her suit was full of extremely pissed-off indestructible vampire. Although, that does bring to mind some disturbing possibilities...
