    So now Kimiko is THE CHOSEN ONE. A mysterious entombed ancient being her "dad" dug up and gave her fake memories of being his daughter. This is so trash fantasy it hurts.

    I still can't get over the fact that Kimiko got the most perfect, advanced cyborg body to fix all of her health issues and prosthetic troubles at zero effort. She walked into the city, gets into a fight with something named Leviathan which breaks her prosthetics but it turns out the necklace she had contained some magic-ass attack beam which made Leviathan retreat. Apparently Kimiko's heart and lungs were so damaged that she speaks of needing to go "full prosthetic". And oh boy, how is she going to do that when she has no access to the materials needed to build intricate prosthetics? Oh wait nevermind, the robots show up and because she fixed a little bot-bot on her first day in the city of Who Gives A Fuck, they build a full blown surgical chamber to transplant her brain into the perfect robot body. She made it through an entire page of worrying about what the fuck she had to do next before the solution fell into her lap.

    That's what pisses me off the most about this whole Dark Science arc. 7 years, 75 pages, and every major conflict or problem Kimiko faces gets solved within a page of being introduced. And usually because Kimiko trips and falls onto the solution, or someone just dumps the solution on her. Kimiko doesn't earn any of her fucking shit, so her victories are worthless.

    The city of Nephilopolis is retarded. People simultaneously worship Kaito Kusanagi and his science, yet the entire city is rigged with bureaucracy such as "I bought a permit to murder anyone within the next 15 minutes" and "I need level 3 clearance for friendship points". Why is a city that loves Kusanagi's robotic science so against robotics, for fuck's sake? The issue over cyborgs and what qualifies a human being to be a human being would be interesting if it wasn't handled in such a laughably strawman manner. It's like a 12 year old watched Ghost in the Shell and tried to write his 'original' spin on it.

    The city labeled Kimiko as non-human, except she had prosthetic limbs that people irl pretty much have, so there's nothing to teach the audience. There's no reflection of real life in this society Aaron Diaz has made up. Fake legs, fake arm, fake eye? Yeah, there's people like that. What would you say matters the most qualifying the human? The brain. Oh, Kimiko's still got that shit. Even the fucking comic talks repeatedly that it's basically her brain piloting a body-shaped vehicle. Transhumanism just falls flat here.

    And the secondary characters are ass. There's no time for character development for the twists to have any emotional impact. You have two conversations with a guy and he turns traitor, whoop-de-fucking-doo. You speak to a woman a couple times, turns out she's someone else but who gives a shit. The Dark Scientists barely have time from being identified to doing a roll-call like some stupid Power Rangers shit, sucking all the mystery out of the room. If you go back and read the whole Dark Science story from the start it's evident the pacing is utter shit. I suspect Diaz's fans don't really notice because they've had 7 years of comics slowly trickling in and updating.

    Fuck Dark Science, fuck this 8th equation prophecy bullshit, fuck Kimiko's Mary Sue bullshit. Go piss up a rope, Diaz.

    tl;dr: AIDS

    And now they're villains again I guess.
    Her train of logic for rejecting them is a bit screwy. Out of all the reasons she could possibly have, from being obviously corrupt, to trying to murder her, to being complicit in the city's system, she doesn't want to join them because they're secretive? And them being secretive somehow makes the things they might know less true? Just because something's a secret doesn't mean it stops being true.
    I would fucking love to see the fat man attempt brain surgery with that dinky little dagger.

    Has she forgotton what pants-shitting RETARDED Nephilopolis is? Kimiko herself got flung out on her ass just trying to state basic logic. Nephilopolis is filled with junk and stupidity and nonsensical social rules, why the fuck is Kimiko accusing these guys of being secretive like it's a bad thing? Throughout history, haven't there been scientists forced to conduct their science in secret to avoid persecution, usually from religious shitbags?

    And once again, as soon as characters are introduced we have a twist that they aren't good after all. Maybe someday we'll get through more than 1 page before the twist occurs. This is some Goosebumps books level of getting people to turn the page.

    That's some Harry Potter type of shit, for her to somehow burn them upon touch.
    What the fuck is the point of that giant lady having two faces on either side of her head if they apparently can't see shit?
    What, is Diaz trying to tell us these dark scientists are like vampires or some shit now, can't cross over water? This doesn't make any sense.

    Ahahahaha. It's like fucking clockwork. Uh-oh! Looks like Kim is in a bind! How is she going to get out- oh wait deus ex machina. I thought Kim needed that magic necklace in order to do burning shit? How did she control those robots? Lilith's dad only "let" her briefly control the robots because it was a trap to hack her body's motor functions. Why would he let her continue to have control over the robots? Why are those robots still around, didn't that one guy burn them all up?

    Also yay, she thinks these people who can levitate are like vampires and cannot cross water because two locations involved water? Yeah that sure sounds scientific. Fuck this comic sideways. Also the cartoony eyeballs just don't work.

    Over analyze much? Just say it: Aaron is a pseudo intellectual attention whore with a broken little ego who stumbled into making a webcomic that basement dweller geeks love. "Feminist subtext" with fuckable cute female protagonist blah whatever. Its shit but it gets eyeballs so he keeps drawing it.

    See how easy? When you give him attention it powers him up.

    It's the webcomic version of "I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE".

    It's not real science but pop-science.

    Aaron is just like Dobson: all he's doing is making a character he can jerk off to, but is completely denying it. I just wish he would admit the truth.

    good god, can he for once slow down from all the action and maybe, i don't know, develop the characters instead of having them mention something then interrupted??? that isnt development, that's shitty pacing and shitty writing.

    What the hell is going on. She waited this fucking long to ask about the little robot? Why is everybody poofing away now? Are we to understand that the bad guys are not, in fact, vampires who can be stopped by a small body of water?
