Yumiko: Don’t worry, Timothy. We can’t possibly pass you as a prospective student.

We only use that strategy with boys who speak Japanese.

Timothy: You shouldn’t tease. It’s not Christian.

Heinkel: Kid, you’re in Iscariot now. Get used to it.

If memory serves, Thule was a label ancient authors attached to some place in the extreme north, so a good boat is all that’s needed (yes, yes, I know: you’re talking about some anime or other that I don’t know or care about). In any event, Dracula was an alchemist in life according to Stoker’s novel. But I think that too many crossovers, even in a comedy series, is a sure sign of degeneracy and desperation for readers.

Juri’s my favourite character from the series (maybe second, depending on my mood…she and Utena are neck and neck most of the time). My favourite version is the TV series Juri; the movie and manga Juris are just…unpleasant. For five bucks, I can pull Juri, Ruka, the Shine Madeline (we need to see more of her, by the way), and either Oscar from Rose of Versailles or my namesake (well, a version of those two) into one storyline. The last two would just be there for laughs and to give the Holy League something more to set them apart from Iscariot…a reanimated Joan of Arc might be more interesting, though. Incidentally, how are vampires about passing under running water (thinking of the Chunnel here).

Sadly, I don’t think Oscar or Athos would fit too well into modern society. Noble and wonderful as they are, their ways of thinking are just too outmoded. For example, I’m pretty certain that Athos would’ve turned cavalry loose on the Muslim rioters a couple years back (or maybe even repeated Napoleon’s famous ‘whiff of grapeshot’). Oscar might not go so far, but I can definitely see her putting them down violently.

Shame on you for not knowing Fullmetal Alchemist, which, BTW, has already appeared in Shine. If Dracula as an alchemist when he was alive (not something I knew), that gives me some further ideas for plans I’ve already been working on.

Juri and Ruka in France would be interesting. I’ve suggested a full Hellsing/Utena crossover on a scale similar to “Shine or Die” (only with tons of character depth and layers, ala Utena TV, that peels back the barriers of Integra and Alucard to their fundamental natures – really deep stuff), but it’s unlikely to happen. Right now I’m mainly hoping for a crossover with Integra and Akio mincing words. The two great forces of willpower in their respective continuities clashing would be awesome.

I HAVE AN IDEA ON THAT.

..And there’s also the “LOL YUMI”. Yumi =/= Yumie. Call the berserker ‘Yumi’ when Marimite’s involved and you’ve got MANY LULZ. Yumie in pigtails. Priceless.

Still, I have an idea on why Yumiko left Lillian. But it would also get rid of the awesome “Yumiko finding out her grande souer is still at Lillian for some reason” scene I have in my head. And it’d be rather dramatic, which is only good when there’s a good punchline or Timothy getting confused.

AS FOR WHAT YUMIKO SAID IN TODAY’S STRIP:

You’re lucky, Timothy. But that luck’s gonna run out eventually, and you’ll be left in a situation that we will call hilarious and you’ll call embarrassing, Timmy-boy. >:3

Yes, I was wondering just the same – how in the world did the students handle such a hellcat like Yumie?

Probably had a group of Kendo club members keeping an eye on her at all time.

..But that might’ve been ’cause Yumie would’ve been a pretty strong member and they were fangirling, despite mostly seeing Yumiko.

I think the two switched around when it was useful. For P.E. and such, Yumie, and for regular classes, Yumiko. Then again, that may cause Yumiko some unwanted attention for being awesome in gym, and a group of fangirls may form.

SHE WAS PROBABLY IN THE ROSE FAMILY, YUPYUP. Most likely Rosa Chinensis.

Now THAT would be interesting!

Heinkel speaks the truth, Iscariot really does just seem to consit of Catholics-in-name only.
