You were serious on the lots and lots of death thing. Am getting chills wondering whose next, then Seths death was satisfying to an extent till that little dying message. You story is something I'd love to see in manga then animated.

This chapter sure stings... (kinda like Dark Emperor)
Anyway, it was quite an action-heavy chapter. One-on-one fights and explosions going around. Gaff once again shows just how ruthless he can be. In comparison to the previous gruesome deaths? Yeah, I think these are pretty graphic, though I think I don't feel as bad because they were villains. Nonetheless, I can imagine it'd make a lot of people shudder.
Gaff's final maneuver was very brilliant writing there. I thought it was crazy he was still alive, but what he really did was even more crazy. Protecting the ones you love at all cost without worrying about how you'll end up... that's devotion for ya, I guess. I can't really say things can simmer down just yet, especially not after Seth's dying message - something that not even Seth predicted and came out of nowhere. And now we play the waiting game on what this could be.

Brilliantly done, my good sir. The fight between Set hand Gaff was pleasantly brutal and with this the events surrounding Alexis starting in the first series have finally hit their conclusion. Odion was pretty awesome, though it didn't last very long.
I do hope that we see Leviathan again since it didn't really get any screen time. It pretty much appeared and then lost.
Seeing as you've never done a 5 chapter "book" before I'm curious about how you plan to finish things up in this one. Looking forward to reading it. Also, congrats on getting out the last few chapters so quickly without sacrificing any quality.

oh wow, the final battle between Seth and Gaff was really epic, and Gaff's Final strategy to stop Kat was just brilliant.
The fights in this chapter were very fun to read, and quite easy to follow, as well as Seth's Affinity Soul being a truly terrifying and powerful monster to be reckoned with, and we finally get to see it in action as it's poison is one of the few things to bring down powerful Anomalies like Gaff and Jade.
The Drama and emotion to Gaff's death is handled very well as Alexis grieves for her lover, but manages to find some form of resolve when she figures out what he's done and how he did all he could to protect her even in death, even if it was for the final bit he could.
The gore and gruesome deaths were very spot on for a series of battles that were to go all out and show us just how destructive these fights can be on other people.
The emotion is real and you can really feel for Alexis who has lost the love of her life, but can also take comfort that Seth is also dead.
Great job man, you better keep this up or I'll come over there and break your knees.

It pains me so much to see that the thing blinding people such as Matt and Seth are their intentions, which are actually quite noble under the surface. Matt simply wants to look out for his sister (albeit EXTREMELY excessively) and Seth wants to save the world (albeit in an EXTREMELY costly and inhumane manner). The true evil lies in the selfishness of other villains like Slade, who work and force others to suffer for their own ends. If only there was a way to reform the villains and let them figure out ways to achieve their noble goals without going through such cruel means.

Oh no. Seth's Afffinity Soul entering the field...will we ever know its form?
Loved the Vy/Amelie/Tom vs Ulric fight. Tom got his moment! Poor guy for having to help Ulric take off his armour though. Haha
(Axel... ;_; Rest in peace, Axel.)

How Intense. Leena appears to have started on her path towards a heroic BSOD, Valor is down for the count, and Hieshi showed up and took down Brick like he was an ant. I wonder how he would match up against his old friend, Lee. The fight between the girls (with cameo appearances by Zack and Tom) against Ulric was quite entertaining. It also solves my mental question of what would happen if xenotrium was used against a brain-washed target. I guess it's sort of like an anti-magic field in some ways.
Hopefully the next one will come out just as quickly. I'm looking forward to it.

this is getting really interesting _
MORE I SAY!

Penguins, three-headed dogs, an bears... Oh my!
Looking up at the new year for the downward spiral that is the coming chapters. The characters were all well-written for the most part. Maybe it's just me, but I thought everyone's personalities were fleshed out nicely, like Kim's being irritable and Brick's Brickness (which felt more nonsensical than usual, if that were possible). Plenty of good scenes that always seem to end right when it's about to get good.
Clearly, the scenes with the Booker siblings and the Leena lovers were the strongest parts, integrating themselves into the final scene with quite a big shock factor. Quite brilliant that Valor's deafness is what prevents him from stopping at Leena's cry. A shame about Axel. I was kinda hoping the Mr. Hyde part of him would stay a little longer, but I think it's a good point of no return for Leena and Valor. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Matt predicted this outcome. It's just a bit too perfect of a situation to convince Leena further to be on his side. Hypertech Tower... the memorial site of Leena's loved ones... well, except for her very close one, that is... You know, the name "Valor" is quite significant, considering the outcome, isn't it?
Great work on the chapter!

YES. AN UPDATE ON NEW YEAR'S DAY.
Oh, Kim. I hope you get to see your immaculate house in Australia one day.
BRICK'S AFFNITY SOUL IS A GIANT PENGUIN HAHAHA. It suits him quite well.
...And Axel dies at the same place Felicia dies, oh man, that tower is really gonna haunt Leena. :(
(Valor turns deaf huh...? I kind of want to see him and Yoshino fight together now.)

Well, that ending wasn't quite expected. I had hoped that Axel would at least survive long enough to attempt to redeem himself, but I guess you don't always get the chance to do so.
I'm sort of curious about how this will effect Leena and Valor's relationship. Leena wasn't exactly close to Axel after his rampage, but he isn't someone that she's known for a while. It will probably be pretty detrimental for the next while, though then again I expect that Leena will likely have a bit of a breakdown and probably side with her brother for now. After all, last she remembers she was going to attack the renegades and then she got nearly killed by Leah. Then she wakes up and finds out her best friend is dead, that she was the best friend Leah was avenging and that Leah had been tricked and possibly brain-washed, that the gods are fighting each other, and then the second thing she sees is one of her old allies die at the hands of her elemental god. She probably just wants to curl up into a ball and wait for this to all end, no matter who wins.

Nice chapter after a long wait. Things are still ramping up. Sarge may have survived, but Axel is going to be getting a lot of shit even if his primary personality regains control. The fight between DAxel and Valor was short but intense, which seems to fit. DAxel is much better at offense than defense and Valor is unlikely to want a fight to go on for a long time anyway. I want to see what happens next.
The last part of the story is pretty interesting. I'm very curious to see what's going to happen and why Seth wants Gaff to kill him. Good thing the next chapter seems to be so close.
| Ynnej chapter 31 . 12/15/2013
Wait what? He's giving Seth a free shot? Or he's planning to be one of the first to be reborn in a stronger body? Or if he has some ability where he takes over someone who kills him? Release the next chapter!
Looking forward to seeing more of Yoshino's and Mia's fight, and how Yoshino can get around to having her mind read.
| Amy-dono chapter 31 . 12/14/2013
Oh yes! Some amazingly crazy fights going on here. Valor seems to be the one in the most critical condition. That does not sound very good.
Seems to be like Matt's extraordinary Flora powers is what made Leena wake. Probably completely healed now because of that. This will be a reunion to behold, for sure. Yoshino vs. Mia has potential to be great. Nothing crazy seemed to have happened yet, so I assume that's saved for next chapter.
Pretty astonishing cliffhanger. My only guess why Seth would say such a thing is because it's exactly what Slade's plan is, but Seth isn't a team player, so there's some ulterior motive behind it. It's not like he'll just let Gaff up and kill him or there would be no point to spring that trap. Interested in seeing what's next!

This is really starting to get very intense keep up the great work
