RAIN p.63 - Spoiler Warning by JocelynSamara RAIN p.63 - Spoiler Warning by JocelynSamara
(Posting this early because my internet is really fussy tonight, so I'd rather just get the page up while I have then not be able to get online when it's actually time.)

First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

And after two weeks, weíre finally back to the main character.

This is a really odd page. When I finished drawing it, I couldnít help but think what a bold move this was. I debated redoing the whole thing many, many times over the past month and a half since I actually finished this one. But the fact is, this is an incredibly significant pageÖ just, not for the same reason that any of you would probably realize yet. ;)

Iím going to let you guys interpret this one however you choose. Is it blatant foreshadowing? Is it merely a clever distraction to throw you off? Am I toying with you more than you realize? My answer to all of those questions: you tell me. :XD:

What I will tell you - in case you were wondering - the characters in the manga are (from left to right) Kaminari, Aneko and Hokori. You will be hearing the story of ďBlack Wings, KaminariĒ frequently throughout this story. Itís okay if you donít completely follow it or havenít quite gotten the names down yet though. Most of it is going to be told out of order and in choppy snippets after all. Iíll do my best to make sure you can follow along with pretty minimal knowledge of whatís going on though. After all, itís not directly relevant, but it does enhance the experience. ^_^

You know what would be cool?  If you turned this into a full on series.  That'd be awesome.  Making another comic that happens to be an in world comic.  I mean, I don't know if you have or not, but you haven't linked to one at all, so I'm guessing you didn't, right?  But anyway, it would be pretty cool.  But I guess you're pretty busy with everything, huh?

(Playing WindWaker for the passed few days, I think I feel better enough to comment).

I definitely like the foreshadowment you have here. And though I don't know what exactly it means. I'm looking forward to reading more to discover the true answer.

The Kaminari page you have is a great flavor to the story. And I also love how it fits into Rain. If you think of Rain as Kaminari. than Aneko and Hokori are Maria and Gavin. And the way Gavin turned on Rain for her secret is no different than how Hokori betrayed Kaminari for her wings. To me, its actually aamazing to see Rain slowly begin living her favorite manga in some way. Even though sometimes it may feel more real than what some are comfortable with.

I also hope that if this is translated to volumes you have Kaminiri profiles for the extras. Trust me, as a fan I'm willing to learn more about the world of Rain and the manga she reads.

If/when Rain goes to print, I intend to include indepth profiles, plotpoints and even "behind the scenes" info on all of the fake manga (including Black Wings, Kaminari, Halloween Princess Pandora and Mad Giga-Kaizer X). The fact is, I've come up with a LOT more information on the three of these then I'll EVER have time to cover in the main story from relevant parallels, to commentary of real world manga.

I would seriously consider buying a behind the scenes book thing with all the juicy! Behind The Scenes! details and Soundtrack! albums...or maybe a Scott pilgrim style final page in the back of each volume detailing little things every so often...could be a good idea ^^

It's seems to some up the sitation with rain and Gavin pretty well. He Hates her because she is different but ends up falling in love.
What I gathered from your comments and the dialogue of the page itself.

and yet another way you can compare me to Rain. I am bad for spoiling stuff for people lol. And just a little bit of info before I ever found this comic me and my friends had decided on a official girls name for me to use. And well check it out Kassie "Rain" Gregory i just thought it was kind of funny when I started reading this and it was like I reading about my own life in parts.

Some how i expected that Maria would instantly love it this is pretty much was i assumed the page would look like. It good that they have something that can make them better friends beside the fact that Maria like Rain. I am going to assume this is like Gavin who is eventually going to accept Rain.
Rain said a spoiler, whoops lol.

I do really think you should use the better of the two art styles for your regular comic, so as to not detract from your regular comic with your story-in-a-story scenes. That panel looks great, and is more distracting on this page than the actual story because of how clean and detailed it looks, it just seems more appealing.

I can understand why you'd go for something more simple to bang more pages out faster and easier, but the more you practice at something you'll only get better and quicker with it, and though it may be more work starting out it would get easier over time--that's just my thoughts though. It looks great, and I think it would be great to see you use it more, if ever you have the time and confidence to switch over.

But in it's little teasing bouts right now, it is pretty distracting. All good things are. ;D

Huh, talk about art imatating life, looks like it's not just Rain who has a fictional counterpart in Kamatari *Wink* *Wink*.

Also, I do admit that like Rain I have a tendancy to give away spoilers when I talk about something, but luckly I have an online friend who loves spoilers so he doesn't mind if I give everything away, which is good for getting things out of my system :lol: .

One of my friends got into Death Note not knowing the biggest spoiler of anime ever.
Also: I see quite a few parallells with Hokori and Gavin, Kaminari and Rain. Unfortunately, you can be very good at fake foreshadowing, so I'm hesitant to read too far into this page.
Kaminari looks beautiful, but Aneko reminds me of Link ^^;

The Black Wings Kiminari/Rain juxtaposition is too good of a plot device to make into an elaborate attempt at reverse psychology... I think I'll put my money down on blatant foreshadowing...

Ah yes.

Right.

Rain better hope Maria's an impressive speed-reader then.

Though each time "Black Wings, Kaminari" is brought up, the suffering of "Black Wings Calamari" shall increase tenfold as he curses the similar naming of the two titles causing his own manga's downfull.... :(

Side note: If you ever cosplay, go as Tifa Lockheart from Final Fantasy 7. Your picture/icon continues to remind me of her.

Now that you mention it, I guess I do have the right face/hair for it... but I dunno if I can pull off the costume. I'm not really comfortable about the midriff personally. ^^;

Incidentally, they're making a new game for the PSP called "Final Fantasy Type-0" (used to be Final Fantasy Agito 13), and there's some girl whom I think looks EXACTLY like me, down to the glasses. It's eerie. Square Enix is stalking me or something...

No, really. Look at her - [link]

I've already been telling a few people I want to cosplay her, but I should probably wait until I actually get to play the game (it'd suck if I didn't like the character or something).
