I'm sure this is exactly what played on that tape in the episode proper. Totally nothing different from normal here.

I thought about seeing if I could get some of the dialogue in this translated to Japanese, but I didn't really get the chance to. I don't think it's too huge a loss or anything, though - it might add to the atmosphere a little bit, but I'm still very happy with this page.

Also, if you don't recognize that guy fighting Sareena, he's named Ozias Cipriano and showed up in Black Princess's fifth chapter. It's pretty unlikely, outside of just cameos or minor roles or something, he will show up in WaR again (he's going to come back in BP, I assure you), but the key thing here is just to show off the wide range of Sareena's abilities and use her to show that magic is real.

I love this page; it came out so friggin' creepy. ^^

The angles are all very nice. One touch I particularly liked that I thought amped up the creepiness was that in none of the shots you can see Sareena's face, even though she's the one this is all focusing on. The overlapping voices and tracking bit with the tape all just work together so well. One of the best scripts/pages in the whole chapter, I think.

This is actually a legitimate fear of mine. When I walk around in the middle of the night, listening to my iPod, I always get this weird paranoid fear that a voice will play telling me to kill myself of run head-first into a concrete wall. Not that I'd do it, but just the half-expectation for the music to stop and a voice to scream at me over the headphones really keeps me on edge.

That pyramid says "Apocalypse" in Japanese, if you're wondering. A bit on the nose but eh. ^^

Oh, poor Rin he looks so scared in the last panel, just what is O'Hara trying to do to him.

We'll get a little insight into that soon enough. Yeah though, things are far from easy for Rin right now, and there's more to come.
