This concludes this week's 4-second fight scene. I hope you enjoyed it.

Welp, at least the monster is down too!
Don't be mad, Jeff. MS just needs to get used to this.

The new font is PERFECT!
Did you make it?
I'm envious.
I made a font once, but it turned out crappy.

Incoming PM! Check it out. I coloured one of your old pages.
Because you didn't.
It was like adult colouring book therapy.

Ha, yeah, the news mods are 'bot all they're cracked up to be! Yeah, I did make the font! I'm glad you approve. You can expect to see it in Chanterelle and May soon, to. I used this website to make it:
It took like 5 minutes and was awesome, so I will give them a plug here.

I already responded glowingly to the PM, but it's worth repeating here:

And caught up :D

I always prefer when mechas do not have any additional programs and it is just you the pilot, your skill and the machine is simply the extension of that . Because then it is like a glorified weapon and still not a robot.
Like in Gundam... Yeah.

AWESOME! That's music to my ears! I'm so glad you made it.

Yeah, Mecha-Smiles is basically anti-Gundam. There's a lot to control in Mecha-Smiles, and frankly, Jeff's not an amazing pilot to begin with.

Plus, the idea behind this strip was that, in contrast to giant mech tropes, fight scenes would be short and anti-climactic, and stories would get bogged down by banal things. This was an idea I thought hilarious. I'm still not sure I'll be able to put that idea over or not!

The last remark is interesting!
Because that is actually how Gundam pretty much works, heh!

It is like... half anti-gundam at least from my observation.

At least the classic Gundams (which I like the most) usually had shorter more realistic fights where one shot is enough to bring someone down.

And then the pilots spend the rest of the day discussing banal stuff, moaning about military and repairs :D

Ha! Too funny. I foiled myself. I've seen a few episodes of some Gundam series or another, but TBH, I didn't watch much of it; I don't know enough about it to make a direct parody, but perhaps the parallels would surprise me after all!

No worries.
I am just a big Gundam fan, haha.

You are maybe half right BUT it blends alright :D
I like mechs!
