NOW IT'S THE FINAL PAGE >D Hope you enjoyed the comic :D.

In fanworks, I've only seen depictions of "Kotetsu comforting a sad Barnaby." It might just be me with bad memory, but I do not recall seeing anything that showed the other way around. With that in mind, I drew this, and uh I hope it's in-character?

As for the flowers shown throughout the comic, they're red spider lilies (or "higanbana" in Japanese, or Lycoris radiata in Latin). They usually bloom near cemeteries on the autumnal equinox. They are said to grow in "hell*," so they're associated with the dead. These flowers appear a lot in the anime Jigoku Shojo.

I had wanted to draw a sotoba on this page instead of a higanbana, but drawing them would require extensive knowledge of Japanese funeral traditions and kanji.

*In the Buddhist version of hell, it's more of a purgatory than a place of eternal punishment like in the Christian tradition.

Shit man....for the first few pages I thought Kotetsu's mom had passed away...I WAS SO SAD. I love that woman D:
This was a really good comic idea. Thinking back now, I don't think Barnaby ever really consoled Kotetsu over anything....he just gave him advice over what to do with Kaede and stuff. It's a nice change up :)

Do you take requests at all? :3 If so, could you give Saito a guest appearance in one of your comics? He cracks me up no matter what he does. Especially when he uses a mic to amplify his voice a thousand fold LOL I die laughing every time. He's my third favourite...first and second being Kotetsu and Ivan respectively. :D

@constant_boredom: I hope that in the next season we see Bunny consoling Kotetsu in some way, if there's going to be a next season (which is likely).

I may consider the idea, but that depends on how relevant it is to my next plot bunny, which is currently vacationing somewhere in the Caribbean.
