The Crossroad - Part 172 by Kigurou-Enkou The Crossroad - Part 172 by Kigurou-Enkou
...meanwhile in THIS comic, a lot happens! 8'D

Yes, Alyss was referencing Guren Lagann, and yes, the reference was not lost on Makoto. Some may recall me saying once in a journal that Guren Lagann was more-or-less his favorite anime, fun fact.

To the 1%< of you who are Sanhora fans, yes, I FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY explain why Laurencin's in this story! I hope the anti-climatic reveal was worth it 8'D

Okay in all seriousness, yes, this Laurencin was never the 'true' Laurencin from the start. You could perhaps say he was made from the original's memories...a shadow by Rein's creation. But what of the rest of Makoto's team, you may ask?

Ah, well...you'll find the answer to that soon ^^

As a side note, those black-and-white negative panels are a first for me. I'm quite happy with how they turned out, now that CreateX.swf has a function to 'fill' in character models with solid colours! My only problem is that I couldn't quite put a 'glow' around the characters, but that was improvisable.

Some of you may have also noticed some snippets from the 5th Story Roman manga in there, flashbacks of the true Laurencin's past...and also a reference to a MUCH more well-known fantasy series 8'D

...oh and Laurencin's eye was glowing gold. Huh, that's weird.

I'm sure it's nothing :D

Also, CIRNO MAKES A COMEBACK AT LAST! 8D And through other characters magically manipulating her regeneration cycle? Gee, I wonder where I could've gotten THAT idea from...

...I mean c'mon it's Cirno. 8D OF COURSE SHE NEEDS A FLASHY ENTRANCE!

If anybody wants that last panel of terrified Cirno as an oddly effective reaction image, just shout it out in the comments XD

BUT WE'RE NOT DONE YET! I still have one more comic to spell the end of Laurencin...and from there, much more than you'd be prepared for to come. Stay tuned and stay classy. ^^

What an edgelord this Fakerencin is.

Also Makoto laughing at the Gurren Lagann reference was funny, but it had a tone of melancholy.

>Fakerencin
>inb4 "FAKER? I THINK *YOU'RE* THE FAKER AROUND HERE!"

Notice what Makoto said by the way and what Alyss caught on to. "I used to love that show..."

If you reverse Cirno's text, you'll find an old meme xD
