WARNING!!!: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. ALSO, ONE PANEL IS BLOODY MESSED UP. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the TRUE battle between Alyss and Makoto begins now. This is literally the moment of The Crossroad that I have been waiting to show for four years.

And hoo boy, is it heavy 8'D

I'll let the comic speak for itself. I await your reactions. This is only the beginning of the end.

Gore props made by :iconeeveeheart151:

As usual, both amazing sketches of Alyss and Makoto were drawn by :iconthedarkbreaker:. You can find the full-res pictures here: www.deviantart.com/art/Berserk… and thedarkbreaker.deviantart.com/…

Metal Gear Rising music but with no sword to fight the corrupted kid with poor taste in music? 
Oof, Alyss is at a complete disadvantage here. Will she be able to break it to him that Eurobeat is the best music genre?
Anyway, 105 parts in the making and this is totally paying off!
What do you mean I'm missing 70 parts? There's totally only 105 here! You must be confused. She only just started at part 71 because she's faaaaancy~
Now you're making me want to see more!
Oh, not because I want Alyss to seriously hurt him for being an innocent kid with innocent dreams. That's horrible! What am I, some kind of heartless jerk?
But because he's facing some really serious repercussions for such a simple desire and I genuinely feel sorry for the kid.
GASP
What a foreign concept!
Seriously though, keep this thing going!

HEY

METAL GEAR RISING MUSIC IS GOOD >:U

And I don't particularly dislike Eurobeat but I think our hero kid here has some serious objections to that 8'D

and imagine that

actual sympathy for Makoto

it's almost like he's a human being and a young kid who doesn't know how to properly handle and process his emotions

and not some black-hearted evil supervillain gappy who needs to have an entire story talking about how he's a horrible person

Thanks for the support, I'm definitely gonna keep going! : D

I love it how that Makoto is seeing the "dying body" of his teammate. That is deep.

Wait till two more comics when I properly reveal WHAT exactly his teammates are; the added symbolism is real! 8D

*chuckle* For some reason, I couldn't read this with a straight face; It's probably because this comic made me start thinking about weird anime scenarios and applying them to this situation. ^^; XD

I mean...this was heavily inspired by certain things, so...

Yeah, I can understand that. The thing is... I had ideas of shounen anime tropes that play off as unexpected twists. ^^;

The main example I thought of was, "During the part where Makoto was sulking about his team "dying", I pictured him getting so anger that he powers-up and transforms into Super Saiyan 4". That's a Dragon Ball thing. Another example is "After Makoto takes that grotesque form and hearing that "Rejoice, Young boy. For soon... You wish shall come true" quote, A being shows up holding a book aside Makoto; It turns out that Makoto was a Mamodo this entire time and that random being was helping him to win the battle to become the Hero of Gensokyo." That is a Konjiki no Gash Bell reference. I have more ideas, even some that involved Alyss doing something anime related and a couple that you would heavily disagree with; But those examples are there to show you was my thought process was; So they're probably not going to be funny to you. =w=

Interesting allusions xD

If you're curious, those last two lines are a reference to Fate/Stay Night. And it should be a tip off that someone is manipulating his emotions now...

*chuckle* My mind just works in weird ways.

Thank you letting me about that reference mainly since I haven't played that eroge... I mean watched that anime. =w= Well, I don't think it tips off that someone is manipulating his emotions, It more confirms it since through out the story there were subtle hints toward that fact. I think I noticed at least two of them, but I only remember one of them off the top of my head. ^^;
