Jade pushing her sister and making her drop the amulet somehow summoned our Bigger Bad, Lindi, who immediately threatened Ruby and is implied to have something to do with her mother’s “death”. Which makes it ESPECIALLY weird that Ruby is so willing to work with her later on. Will Ruby’s memories get erased or something?
The amulet activating when Jade calls for her mother fits with my theory she might be alive somehow. We’ll have to see how that plays out!
Jade finally deigns to reveal the full backstory between her and Ruby! After her mother’s death, the relationship between her and her sister broke. Jade resented the whole system of agents being chosen and how much loss it had created, while Ruby instead idolized their mother. Jade understandably felt like nobody was allowing for her anger anymore.
I wonder if the fact no agents were being chosen after Adelaide passed means she’s not really dead somehow- we’re not getting many details the circumstance of her death, after all.
The girls (especially Paige) finally get sick of Jade’s shady behavior when she calls them up JUST to be needlessly critical. FORTUNATELY JADE HAS A LOVING WIFE TO KEEP HER IN LINE.
I completely agree with this author queer love is the best solution to all unfair and unreliable magical girl mentors. IF ONLY LUNA HAD FOUND A LOVING WOMAN TO BE BY HER SIDE, SO MUCH PAIN COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED.
We’ve officially made it to Chapter 6 and volume 2! Seems we can look forward to learning more about our broken gem twins, and maybe we’ll even see Norah go head to head with the bigger bad!
Ohhhh no, the shady mentor is looking shadier by the second. WHAT IS THAT IN THE BACK, A CLONE POD OR SOMEONE HEALING OR WHAT. I will admit her being queer makes me more inclined to cut her slack though. Never claimed I didn’t have bias.
It looks like its their father Ruby’s trying to bring back, not her husband. Not sure why I assumed husband since that’s clearly Ruby and Jade as kids in the picture but WHATEVER IT’S LATE.
(also it was coffee making not cooking, so I’m safe)
Chapter X time! I hope it isn’t a cooking episode, I’m already abnormally hungry tonight.
It’s chapter 5.5 now and the plot is thickening- here we get some details about our Dangerous Professor’s motivations- she seems to want to bring back her husband from the dead or something like that- and then we find out the engagement-party-ruining-wayward-protege has bloomed into a full on supervillain, and is the greater scope antagonist influencing Prof from behind the scenes. Whatever her Poisonous Kiss did here, it can’t be good news for our heroes.
The girls function great as a complete team! Unfortunately, Jordan’s Big Bad Mentor catches a glimpse of the action, and she is NOT PLEASED to say the least. DON’T WORRY NORAH, THAT’S ONE BIT OF PROPERTY DAMAGE YOU DIDN’T ACTUALLY CAUSE.
When we last left off, we were in the middle of HALLOWEEN SHENANIGANS with Norah going to a party and meeting Tuxedo Mask! Of course, as always, a monster rudely interrupts romance, so we get to kick this liveblog off with a pretty gorgeous transformation sequence….sequence. Always nice when your soundtrack is pre-installed into the area.
It’s time to start a new liveblog! I’ll be reading the webcomic Agents of the Realm!
It’s a magical girl webcomic (I’m pretty sure)! It’s my dream to liveblog every single good magical girl webcomic out there and people are supporting that dream.
The tag for this liveblog will be #nev reads agents of the realm.
