    Um…. i think yall are looking at the wrong person with the theories here. true, this could very well remind Minnie of who she once was but i think this more reflects on Him. This is him thinking of the strongest thing he knows and ever since get his nergal half, his sister was still strong enough to control something that was no longer even a part of her. Even before that, she was still seemingly stronger than him combat-wise( or so it looked to me). So, it may not be for her to remember but him admitting she was better which was his issue early on in the series.

    just my thought anyway. [Awaits Income Coming Debungling Messages]

    HA! I love it, that’s so cheeky of Junior. And the title, ‘Engarde Once More’ is pretty clever. Both in general and in terms of explaining exactly what’s happening.

    Hope that form is going somewhere that isn’t any kind of exposition about self discovery. I see other people have theories its to remind Minnie of who she was, and maybe they’re right, I know better than to assume a writers intentions from a single image, but I will say that it would be disappointing to read a very serious comic series, and suddenly its got cross dressers…. I mean, I would say cross dressers and gay people, but you already got half of those in here….

    I don’t mind the fourth wave insanity being in these stories, as long as its temporary to serve an existing plot purpose, that is reasonable within the character’s thoughts.

    (After the SCP foundation got rainbow’d, I lost a lot of patience for stuff like this, and learned keeping quiet out of courtesy is a bad idea.)

    • PrinceErebus

      07/22/2018 at 8:51pm

      Or I should say long standing characters are suddenly cross dressers. I don’t mind both if they’re introduced as such, but other characters shouldn’t meet such a drastic change without a care.

      After the SCP foundation, Local Media, Reddit, Facebook, and so on, have all gone off the deep end and started singing for cross dressers and gays to the point they ban anyone who asks them to shut up, I’m inclined to disagree and say that people should be VERY vocal about it at this point if its suddenly introduced.

    I kinda miss the old art style. The one with more detail and line, color, background stuff made me into this series………(dunno, if this page was drawn during the earlier years, it would’ve been ok with me……in a way(?)
    …..but anyway, the whole Jr cross dressing is still quite weird….I get that it’d be some form of way to bring Minnie back or something but I’m just….like…..wtf right now……srly?
    Hmmm………….so controversial but just so trivial, stupid even……I’ll just wait and see what happens

  • Mr.Duns

    07/16/2018 at 6:43pm

    okay, this can play out in two different ways: this can either be jr’s attempt to remind minnie of who she was or this is merely fanservice. i really hope it is the first option, even if i believe it could have been done better. then again i am not a writer nor an artist so what do i know of this things. we can all be mad or glad that this happened but what we tend to forget is that this franchise is made by experts( or at least i hope they are) in what they do so in the end who are we to judge about something that is theirs to manipulate. that being said i don’t like the approach this comic is going for. a lot of questions have not been answered and the pacing of the story is downright bad.
    again, in my opinion.

  • dawnholic

    07/16/2018 at 4:44am

    …Honestly I think Bleedman just wanted to draw old!Minnie, and came up with an excuse to do it. I have no other explanation otherwise. Shape shifting? Camouflage? Actual transformation? Should I care?

  • DaMetaEX

    07/15/2018 at 7:36pm

    I’m seeing this and i’m like AH SHIT this is exactly what needed to happen. but everyone in the comments is like “THIS IS BULLSHIT” come on you fucking idiots! Why would that form be chosen? TO REMIND MINI OF WHO SHE ONCE WAS!

    • Neobrabazon

      07/15/2018 at 8:02pm

      supposition baseless. bleedman retconned minimandy’s personality; stated she was always evil. this form an insult to her – she sacrificed herself for her brother. deems her sacrifice unwarranted, believes him unworthy. logically, trap-junior only further enrages minimandy to remind her of her loss. if poorly constructed retcon of her personality was not implemented, form change more sensible.
      your insults are unnecessary. as i stated below – many people have read this comic for many years, seen the changes, felt the impact of poorer and poorer choices. retcons abundant, yet to affect characters in positive ways or even be implemented at all.

      • DaMetaEX

        07/15/2018 at 8:52pm

        its its thinking like that that ends up forcing some of not all retcons because you dont like 1 little thing and then you voice your opinion and everyone becomes attached to your opinion and then the majority doesn’t like that idea. is that what happened with this decision. I am not sure. I’m sure BLEEDMAN has a reason for this. but if you completely shit on sudden shifts instead of seeing what the author indends for certain events you will just make the story unfold and fall apart more.

        Perhaps before yo criditisize how people have ready theis for year and years and the changes that happened were less and less impactful. Perhaps you should try creating something like this and watch carefully as your story unfolds but the fans start to dictact how you need to tell the story. Then suddenly its no longer your story.

        • Neobrabazon

          07/15/2018 at 9:43pm

          insisting someone create in place of original creator, as you have just done, is as inferior as telling someone not to read. your suggestions are unhelpful.
          expressed confusion in my original post. still hold belief that future pages may vindicate this plot point. however, as others have pointed out, precedent exists. hopeful points of resolution delegitimized by poor pacing. lack of forethought. impulse. hard to ignore the possibility of recurrence.

          comic high point was during mimi segment when junior displayed defiance toward his mother. plot unfolded, left questions to explore. then it was pushed to one side in order to indulge whims of creator. lesbian crush. pop culture references. skeleton sex. cross dressing reapers. the cycle is ongoing. the precedent exists. trajectory unfavourable.

            07/25/2018 at 12:44am


            Was a brutal take down of whimsical writing.

            I mean, I didn’t think about it at first, but now that you’ve pointed it out, there’s a lot of weird stuff popping up you’d only expect from an insane “Social Justice Warrior” or a fourth wave feminist.

            Or one of those gay pride people that make other gay people disappointed that they scream loud enough for people to think they represent them, and then do so poorly.

    • TheRealNaN

      07/15/2018 at 8:15pm

      ok, there are tons of different ways to remind Minnie of who she once was without having her brother putting on a dress and grow his hair out like Rapunzel. The whole “always being evil” thing was a cop out and far what was supposed to be her character. If he really wanted to remind her on “who she was”, why not take the battle into their minds like where Jr. and the Nergal were a page or two ago? When given some thought, there are tons of ways for this fight to be done well, but it’s making all the wrong choices, the latest one being trap Junior. Like, was this really necessary and worth it for a cheap laugh? I don’t think so.

    that’s it…i think bleedman has given up on this comic. i honestly dont know what the fuck is going on right now.
    i mean what even is this!?
    what purpose does this have other than fanservice!?

    • Mr.Duns

      07/15/2018 at 10:30am

      i know some may like the way the comic is heading, and i respect that, truly. but in my opinion, the way the story is right now makes me really frustrated and confused. i am sorry if i sound very condescending but i need to write how i feel about this.

      TheRealNan: Dude if your just gonna comment only to hate on the story than just stop reading it in general if you hate it so much, no ones forcing you to continue reading it.😑 I’ve done a little looking back but so far the only comment or maybe another I’ve found just has you hating on the story.

      • Skully

        07/15/2018 at 6:31pm

        how would we know if we liked it……… if we didnt read it

        • Shadow Knight Destroyer

          07/15/2018 at 6:53pm

          I mean that he’s been hating on this story for some time, don’t know why he just doesn’t stop reading? If he’s hated the last chapters and before than, what’s causing him to continue reading and just commenting to hate on the story. True in a sense that you don’t know till you read it but he’s already been hating on it before this chapter, and from what he said I don’t know why he continues to read it.

      • Neobrabazon

        07/15/2018 at 7:01pm

        complaints and opinions justified. nan likely a longtime reader. has witnessed the self destruction of the comic. many years. many ruinous decisions. telling someone to stop reading a flawed instruction; indicates you have no better solution and denigrates the person’s loyalty to the storyline. you have no right. clearly not the only person with negative opinion. look around you.

        comic guides by whim, set back by impulse. responses unfavorable. do not tell someone to stop reading. you have no right. horror at comic direction justified. reconsider your statements.

        • Shadow Knight Destroyer

          07/15/2018 at 7:20pm

          I see and I agree as my stammers do sound like that tho I did not know he was a long time reader, I merely started a few years ago when I found out about the story and I can see what I say can come off as unfavorable to someone who has been stuck to this story for awhile. Tho I do see other comments yet his stuck out in a way to me.

      • TheRealNaN

        07/15/2018 at 7:04pm

        basically what Neo said. I’ve read the comic for years and loved it, but now I hate to see what it’s turned into when it could be so much better. In the same logic of I should stop reading if I hate it, then why don’t you stop reading my comments if you hate them? Double standards.

        • Shadow Knight Destroyer

          07/15/2018 at 7:23pm

          Well, good point. I guess it must be a tic in my part from hearing bad things about this story I find to be good tho i do acknowledge there are bad parts be it if I can’t see them. You kinda stuck out to me with that response you gave me a few weeks ago tho from what I see I did comment a harsh comment. Tho why do you only give bad comments so far, aren’t there any parts that are good or no their isn’t any? More so when did this story go down hill for you?

          • TheRealNaN

            07/15/2018 at 8:08pm

            Around the time Mimi’s flashback, after she defeated Vampire Mina, it started to go downhill for me. The flashback itself wasn’t to bad I guess, tho it could’ve used more polish and logic, but then after that, Harlem Shake page happened, and that was the beginning of the end.

            Sorry to say, GT doesn’t have anything in it’s current state that I can see is “good” or “enjoyable”. Another example of wasted talent and story, and it’s sad to see such a good comic become what it is now.

            • Shadow Knight Destroyer

              07/16/2018 at 4:24am

    confusion. pep talk from reaper spirits for junior’s benefit. this form demonstrates adherence to the nergal lineage instead. perhaps tactics will be further explained. interesting twist.

    bleedman displaying recent interest in ‘trap’ depictions. implications unclear.

    You know maybe the grim household just needs a therapist on staff at times

    “so my half sister was fighting me in a mech,
    but i didn’t want to fight,
    and i started to hear the voice of her grandfather,
    and then i heard the voices of many of my ancestors,
    but she wouldn’t stop attacking me,
    so i had to crossdress to defeat her in battle.
    of course, this was after the time she died because of me, gave me her eye, and a demon took over my body to go on a murderous rampage.”

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the canon was that this entire story was being told by their most recent therapist, who had just quit (or rather, was “quitting” but in reality is now suffering a horrible fate for attempting to do so).

    I see, an unexpected but genius move indeed made by Junior. He’s going to make his sister fight her old self, what she could have been if not for abandoning it and becoming more like her mother, this is the divine move that could very well return Mini to normal after all is said and done.

    • Zankyo

      If she is even a be like her mother, it’s not gonna work. I mean Mandy would be able to kill a clone of herself…hell, she would kill herself if that let her gain something

    07/14/2018 at 3:59am

    no…no no no NO NO NO NO. Damn I was so looking forward to this page, what a disappointment. Yes don’t turn Jr into a badass nergal reaper, turn him into a cute crossdresser to fight his sister. That’s brilliant !!! Fuck seriously why ? Just why Bleed ? I am praying this is temporary and it doesn’t happen again. You should have saved this for April fools Bleed

            Not only that, but if he wins it will be humiliating to Minnie that not only did she get beaten by her brother and him looking like her but using her own style against her. A complete defeat.
