NEK: Another chapter ends. Another chapter to begin…

    So…went goofing around on the internet and found a non-canon comic by you. Its placed 3 years(?) down the road. The one with Minni being all lonely after Jr. Left…that’s something I wanna read more about. Is there anyway you can make these chapters lead to that somehow? Her life with the boogieman would be cool…or maybe some background into what Jr was doing all that time…everyone’s dogging on these past few chapters, but I like them…even with the silly Frozen thing going on.

    Hey does anyone know how long until the chapter or page comes out? I’m new to this so I don’t know the release dates.

    • Havoc

      07/10/2015 at 2:24am

      There’s no set schedule. It’s just whenever Bleedman gets around to it. The average time between updates varies greatly, but it’s usually around 2 weeks.

    I personally think they tried way to hard to ship mimi and chi is the last few chapters. First they were trying to make grim jr and minimandy happen but now they just wanna shove mimi and chi down our throats, personally I like grim jr and mimi together than turning her into a lesbian

    I started all the way from the beginning and I found the story all the way to this point I was very pleased I got to re-binge read this again. Artwork . . . awesome, story . . . awesome.

    Why is everyone hating on chi? I know sometimes she’ll act like a bitch then go nice and sweet, but i really like her because shes pretty. I really want to see what shes capable of.

    • Havoc

      06/26/2015 at 2:11am

      The main reason why me and a lot of other people hate Chi is because she’s pretty much hijacked this entire comic, and hasn’t hardly done jack-shit with the massive amount of spotlight she’s been given. Most of us are here for, Junior, Minnie, Mimi, and that bombshell surrounding the heroes of Megaville, but all we get is page after page of this Mary Sue.

      • iPhonelol

        07/02/2015 at 2:08pm

        You got a point there about her not doing shit. I do miss the other characters

    • EchoNeko1313

      06/27/2015 at 11:41am

      I agree with you, in that one chapter where she goes see Jeff she literally gets an image that makes her go “what the freak” after seeing Blossom and if anything. (I think Minni is literally turning into well Mandy. You know she’ll kill someone.) But I think these chapter were fillers, but to also show that there is someone OTHER then Junior and Jeff that actually care for Mimi and wants her safe. She loves Mimi and at least now we know why Mimi isn’t interested in Junior either…

      That’s all I got to say.

    As one door closes another shall open. ^_^
    Chapter 10’s gonna be sweet. I really like how the lightning looks in the first panel. I can only imagine how long one page takes Bleed…
    Not too fond of the Frozen reference only because I had to hear the snowman song sooooooo many times by people around me who couldn’t pipe down…oh god, I can hear it all over again! Lol
    Good job nonetheless, very well done.

  • 06/20/2015 at 2:23pm

    Cool
    She looks beautiful in this dress

    Uh, wow. Am I the only one here who likes Chi? Really? I love her. I think she is interesting, bratty and full of herself, but so was Grim Jr. to start with. And everyone loves Grim Jr. and Mini Mandy, but Bleed created them too. He also created Mimi. None of these kids are cannon, so why all the hate for some focus on Chi? I started reading this comic entirely for Mandy and Grim and their children, but I also love Mimi and Chi, and this is just world building and character building. It feels like it is returning to Grim Jr. soon enough. And what is the big deal if Chi IS Bleed’s favorite? He made up Mimi, Grim Jr., and Mini Mandy too, so it’s not like she is a Mary Sue in a comic full of cannon characters. If anything, all the ladies are Mary Sues. Poor Grim Jr. is out classed by them all. Heck, Mandy herself is somewhat….welll…no. She has major issues, so not really to a Sue status. Still. She is OP. ANYWAYS…..this is Bleed’s story. If he wants to focus on his favorite for a while, who cares? There is still a story going on, this explains her relationship with Mimi, and builds up to when she tries to invade the Grim’s domicile. Without this building there would be no real motivation for Chi seeking Mimi. Besides, I kind of want to see Chi face Mandy. She’d loose, for sure. Badly too. But it ought to be funny.

          Chi..she isn’t full on Mary Sue but she’s close.

          Minimandy is definitely a Mary Sue thought. People get jeslous of her, thought as perfect, everyone loves her. Well at least at the beginning of ther series.

          And junior..has no personality what so ever.

          • Lolwutpear_126

            06/22/2015 at 11:23am

            Minimandy is FAR from being a Mary Sue. Do you even know what a Mary Sue is?

            If not, read this and compare Minnie to the following common Sue traits:

          • kingkunta

            06/22/2015 at 3:29pm

            I know what one is darling, I delt with different ones before.

            Plus there are different forms of Mary Sue, your focusing on the perfect one.

            Plus she has the following traits.
            -daughter of powerful being/ royalty(being the daughter to Mandy)
            -makes others jeslous of her
            -HAD strong powers
            -so called key to the villan’s plan
            -is “perfect”

            Yea, she’s development. But she is definitely a Mary Sue.

          • Havoc

            06/22/2015 at 9:12pm

            After reading this…I sorta have to wonder why you even bothered to read this comic in the first place. Cause to me, it sounds like you’ve hated everything about it from the get-go. :\

          • Havoc

            06/22/2015 at 9:38pm

            (this shitty reply system is killing me)
            Also I agree with Pear, Minnie is far from a Mary Sue. She’s a well developed character with dept, flaws and everything. Though I will say that the recent retcon job on her and the nergal powers was a step in wrong direction.

          • kingkunta

            06/22/2015 at 9:48pm

            Maybe I am wrong with her being a Mary Sue, if so. Explain to me what I just said could be debunked.

            Yea, this comic has its share of horrible moments. I don’t really hate every single character, I enjoy seeing characters like Mimi, Mandy, and sometimes grim jr.

          • Lolwutpear_126

            06/23/2015 at 9:25am

            @Kingkunta:

            -daughter of powerful being/ royalty(being the daughter to Mandy)
            This I can agree on. Yet it still doesn’t necessarily mean Minnie is supposed to be invincible just as well. I’ve read comics involving characters born of powerful parents and yet failing to get their own powers under control, or having any special powers at all.
            -makes others jeslous of her
            Excuse me, but how is that Minnie’s fault? She was being an ordinary girl, trying her best to impress others by working on her qualities and being graceful. How is that being a Mary Sue? Any girl her age would want to impress the grown-ups.
            -HAD strong powers
            Again, doesn’t necessarily make her a Mary Sue. If Minnie had been invincible just because of her powers, then yes, she would have been a Mary Sue. But she isn’t. She even got torn apart and sacrificed herself for her brother, transferring her powers to him and being left behind an empty husk.
            -so called key to the villan’s plan
            This I don’t understand. What key? Which villain? How is this applicable to Minnie in this comic?
            -is “perfect”
            Minnie is far from perfect. She may seem to succeed at a lot of things, but that’s because she actively works on improving herself, in contrast to Jr. who just sulks around thinking he can do nothing. She was trained by what’s-his-name, the raven guy, in order to become graceful and elegant, she learned how to act on stage and got taught how to dance and fight. This still doesn’t make her perfect. She got beaten up in a fight, she got torn apart by the Pumpkin monster, she fell in love with her brother, she gets easily jealous just as well. I can even see her having an inferiority complex under that think layer of “perfection” she seems to radiate. Her own mother even berated her and has high expectations of her. So how is Minnie “perfect”? She’s just a kid who’s trying to impress her parents, already having failed in doing so in the eyes of Grim because she wasn’t born a skeleton girl like her brother.

            *puts on tophat* ah, your reasons pear are very good. Allow me to explain my side!

            The key to the villans plot is from the other pages. Remember? Mimi kidnapped her, him brainwashed her, she was all crazy.

          • Greybackous

            06/25/2015 at 5:53am

            But he also say that he also need Junior.

    • Lolwutpear_126

      06/20/2015 at 12:06pm

      I’d like Chi if the WHOLE damn comic wasn’t about her. And if there wasn’t so many pointless filler like the Gangnam dance page, the Barbie horse page, the Mimi shrine page, the Chi bathing page, well, pretty much most of the pages of this arc. How does us seeing Chi taking a bath tell us anything about her character? What did the Gangnam dance page add to her character? What does THIS page tell us about her character? It’s all pointless filler so people can be all, like, ‘OOOOOHHH ITS FROZEN OMIGAWSH BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER BLEED I LUV U!!!!1111!!!!’. Pretty much like the last pages of the PPGD comic featuring the RRB. Most people pretty much went ballistic seeing all of the new ‘luv luv luv’ potential there, even if it doesn’t make any sense story-wise. Again, I thought Chi was an interesting character too. In the beginning. Her personality can be summarized on pretty much ONE page alone though: she’s a spoiled brat with a hopeless, childisch crush on Mimi. That’s all there is to it. If there had been more, Bleed would’ve shown us by now. And you know, after all of these pages, the final end of it will probably be a ChixMimi waifu page just to rub it into our face even harder.

      • Lolwutpear_126

        06/20/2015 at 12:09pm

        As for Junior, I still dislike him. He’s a spineless twat who has no sense of responsibility. Even after having seen his sister get torn to shreds right in front of his own eyes. I have the feeling Bleed is building this comic towards some kind of harem shit where a worthless guy is surrounded by girls swooning over him, girls he totally doesn’t deserve.

        • Groverman62

          06/20/2015 at 2:13pm

          Soo.. Neon Genesis Evangelion then?.

          Shinji=Junior
          Rei=Minnie and Mimi
          Asuka=Chi

          And as for Junior i disliked him in the beginning because of his petty Jealousy towards Minnie. Now that he has gotten over he has gotten more tolerable, such as his caring for Mimi despite his violent distrust or standing up to MANDY, but he’s still too bland to be likable.

          • kingkunta

            06/20/2015 at 3:26pm

            It seems like chiXmimi is going to be canon, I honestly prefer it over grim jrXmimi any day.

            But..does anyone remember those theories about chi being the reincarnation of blossom or the daughter of blossom and Aku? Aku has a female form that’s like her mother but he can’t fuck himself.

          • Lolwutpear_126

            06/20/2015 at 5:18pm

            Eeeehhh, I think that was Bleed being high on something and thinking to himself to actually put something GOOD in this comic for once. Next day he sobered up and went his usual waifu Chi routine again. Such a shame.

    • Glyphayel

      06/23/2015 at 11:03pm

      Not everyone likes Grim Jr., actually. I like he’s evolution so far though, and to be fair, most of his flaws are due to the fact that he severaly lacks experience in handling situations, or at least that’s how I see it.

      Chi though… I do actually like her, but mostly because I feel like she’s the kind of bratty kid that’s going to get a MAJOR buttkick and learn from it.
      Oh and also because I like her design. Aaaaaaaaaand because she’s related to Aku, but that’s not a good reason to like her, is it.

      So basically I don’t really like her character yet, but I want her to fail in front of a major obstacle and see how she’ll learn from it. ‘Cause so far, she’s… So-so to me.

    It’s nice.

    • Lolwutpear_126

      06/19/2015 at 2:13pm

      Same here. Frozen is so damn overrated. It doesn’t even have a consistent story, and the story itself is full of plotholes. Besides, it still teaches kids that girls are worth nothing as long as they can’t rely on a guy (just look at Anna). Really don’t see the appeal in the movie. Tangled and Brave surpass Frozen by a MILE.

      • athdlg

        06/19/2015 at 10:21pm

        I don’t know. I kind of hated it because of the hype that it got that it didn’t seem to deserve when I finally watched it.
        If you focus on just Anna, then of course you’re going to see it as just another movie with a girl who can’t live without a husband or boyfriend. Looking past that, Elsa is a strong woman that sees being herself is a great feeling and not controlling her feelings so strictly can make her do things she could have only dreams of. Anna realized that sometimes love doesn’t come within a day (and marrying someone for that matter), taking it slow and getting to know the person is usually better. Further, I think that Anna and Elsa’s relationship shows that a families bond can be a powerful source of true love; it doesn’t have to be about ‘romance’ to show you love someone.
        To me, Tangled, Brave, and Frozen are all kind of the same…Brave is a little better, but I only see it as that because of the new plot (thought it was a bit boring, loved the mother and daughter concept).

        • Alchroniel

          06/21/2015 at 1:19pm

          If I may weigh in here: the thing I liked about Brave was that it pretty much had no villain character. The witch can’t be blamed for turning Merideth’s mother into a bear (she’s a witch with a bear complex and she was begged to ‘change’ her, what did Merideth think was gonna happen?) and while Mor’du might have been the villain of another story, in Brave, he was just a black bear trying to mid his own goddamn business and people kept stepping into his territory. If anything, I got from Brave that, sometimes, we’re the ones that screw up.

          • athdlg

            06/22/2015 at 8:46am

            You’re right, they didn’t really have a ‘villain’. Which, when I think about it, is pretty nice. People screw up, emotions go wild, and sometimes that needs to happen for people to be closer and learn a lesson. The black bear turned wild and he couldn’t really learn a lesson…but still, nice.

        • Lolwutpear_126

          06/21/2015 at 5:56pm

          Elsa is strong? Really? She spent about HALF of the movie being a damn emo kid and ending up thinking living in an isolated ice palace somehow will sovle her little problems. How is that any example of being strong? Merida didn’t want to marry, so she actively tried to change her mother’s mind (which ended up going horribly wrong, true), learning a lot about herself in the process. Rapunzel had the courage to go against her mother’s way of thinking and left the tower, discovering the world around her. But what did Elsa do? Cry a bit in a corner? And what did Anna do? Almost getting married to a scumbag out of naivety? She only fell in love with another guy about 30 minutes later in the movie. Really, there’s not much time difference in between her meeting Hans and then Kristoff. Who’s to say Kristoff can be trusted? She hardly spent more time with him than with Hans. And what’s up with the damn trolls? Oh well, love the movie all you want, I still think it’s one of the worst pieces of garbage Disney’s produced so far.

            06/22/2015 at 9:13am

            Dude, back up and read back on what I said before. I hate Frozen, never said I loved it anywhere in any post. Disney is supposed to teach lessons, morals, miracles, etc. The imperfections and screw ups of the main character(s) come natural and to be expected (it’s not necessarily an excuse, but it is just a movie), especially since the majority are/were teenagers. The end result is what usually gets the person to like the character in the end because of how they matured, developed, or learned. Merida and Rapunzel have their flaws too. Focusing on the positive is better to me, even if I happen to dislike the characters or movie; it’s mostly why I defended the two in Frozen.

      Okay what is wrong with Frozen. As a person that does not watch tv and have addblock on my pc so I’m never exposed to commercials, I never felt the hype, and got aware of the films existence from fanart on deviantart.
      I saw it and I liked it, it was much much better then Brave, and a little better then Tangled, the ending of Tangled really sucked (but not as much as Avatar of course, nothing beats that movie in that regard).
      Still for being a Disney movie Frozen was great.
      I guess Anna was the protagonist but there is a reason why Elsa is the fan favourite.
      Personally I think that people that resent the movie, does so as a reaction to people that love them.
      I give it 4 out of 6 stars, and I am very conservative with my stars.
      Tangled get 3 and Brave 2.

      By the way, please state one Disney movie that actually taught a good moral lesson. I dare thee.

    Seems like Chi’s doppelganger has some flaws in her acting ability. I wonder if she’ll be found out.
