5th Oct 2019, 6:00 PM Kat: Lemme strike a pose here:


I don’t think he’s “checking her out”, and I definitely wasn’t trying to objectify Kat here. Believe it or not I’m actually foreshadowing. But I mean, it is weird that someone who’s always hiding at home would be so athletic-looking, unless they’re fitness junkies.


5th Oct 2019, 7:43 PM Haha I like how natural the interactions feel!

Kairo is trying figure out the new recruits here, and they're both full of surprises XD. Curious what this could mean for the future...Really like the art here btw!
5th Oct 2019, 7:47 PM Full of surprises XD you can say THAT again. You’re right that he’s tryna figure these kids out, I mean, he’s never trained people with special abilities and stuff before. If
I was him I’d feel pretty nervous and unqualified

I’m glad the interactions feel natural, sometimes it’s hard to pull that off, this page had a few dialogue changes before I published it. And the art was so fun, thanks!
6th Oct 2019, 9:10 AM Checking her out was exactly my first thought.
6th Oct 2019, 12:27 PM Haha that’s my bad XD

Kat probably thought he was “checking her out” as well
7th Oct 2019, 2:34 AM Yeah I gotta remind myself he's twice her age so there's PROBABLY (hopefully) nothing like that going on xD
7th Oct 2019, 7:32 AM Don’t worry, there isn’t ;)
7th Oct 2019, 7:21 AM For some reason this scene's funny to me? (Maybe because similar situations happen around me in real life?) Also, I wonder how buffed can Kat get if she's already that big WITHOUT exercising??!!
7th Oct 2019, 7:33 AM Haha, that’s okay! And there is a reason she’s so strong, but we’ll get to that later.
20th Oct 2020, 7:10 PM Dang, Kat! You're ripped!
21st Oct 2020, 11:36 AM Beefy gurl 😜
19th Feb 2021, 1:18 AM I can sort of related to him; I check out people at the gym solely to see whether I can likely beat them physically. This is normal, right?

Anyways, I imagine she can power up by sunbathing, assuming she doesn't get sunburned due to her ability.
19th Feb 2021, 8:44 AM She might be able to do that a little bit? But that usually wouldn’t be fast enough to sustain her. Kat’s body has come to almost completely rely on the recharging machine which absorbs the energy constantly for her and then she just plugs in to it, adjusting the energy level to suit her need.

I’d imagine you’re not the only one who analyzes other gym members ;)
19th Feb 2021, 10:16 AM So she's probably less of a photovoltaic cell or solar panel (Superman) and more like a rechargeable iPhone with an external charger, at least in my head.\

There was a joke among some guys at my school gym saying that most guys look at athletic girls as people they'd like to hook up with or marry, while DHManga looks at them going "Sweet, I wonder what it'd be like to fight you." I went full Goku there.
19th Feb 2021, 11:54 AM Yeah, like Kairo said - she's like a battery.

Haha omigoodness well for what it's worth, I bet a lot of girls prefer your approach or at least find it funny!
19th Feb 2021, 7:00 PM I'm not hitting on them, nor do I have the intent to, if that's their preference. I haven't actually mentioned this to any female gym goers yet, but I explained this thought process to guys who were doing a "curls for gurls" or "plates for dates" approach, while I just wanted to see whether I could outdo someone in strength or MMA. It got me to top 5 strongest in my (albeit small private) grad school at the time.
