    Well, the biggest threats to her are the demis. And, yes, brute force won't work with them. They're probably as powerful as she is, and far older and more experienced.

    Enthusiasm only goes so far.
    May you get EXACTLY what you wish for.

    I think this fight scene is supposed to establish the upper limit of her power?

    At least, I hope it does. What I hope happens here is that, while she can apparently handle herself against the mooks (even though she makes rookie mistakes, she's powerful enough to survive through them) she'll have difficulty against their boss and have to be bailed out either by White Chain or Cio.

    If this scene is supposed to establish the upper limit of her power, I'd much rather have this scene than a training montage.

    We'll see. It still feels like a jarring jump to me, is all. How should i say this... it feels as if the character I know is gone, and replaced by a vaguely similar looking one with a very different personality and skillset. I can't yet say if I like this new main character.
    I don't necessarily want to see training montage, is what I mean. But so far, I don't see much continuity between earlier Allison and this Allison. That will hopefully change when we get a few character moments.

    Well, this story looks like it became a martial arts movie for no reason, but I think that Abbadon wants to show how much Allison has learnt, before she gets clobbered again, by more competent adversaries.

    I don't mind the time-jump. I assume after this second scene or maybe the one after we'll meet the gang again and learn what happened during the missing time.

    Keep in mind that the Allison's we've seen were:

    1) Have no clue WTF is going on, scarred out of her mind
    2) Lost/Confused, and even if resolved had no real idea what she was getting into
    3) Brave and Naive
    4) Incubbused

    As such - IDK, spend a year acquiring super martial arts and god powers PLUS spending a year getting IDK used to the world (the pre-time split was what, like a couple of days?) and its rythm, I can see someone becoming more assured and self-possessed.

    They can be fun to see. And it wouldn't have had to have been more than a single page.

    Especially when it also involves a degree of character development, I feel it's worth showing.

    He's a Servant(specifically, a Goblin), not a demon. Unless you mean "demon" in the allegorical sense that Abbadon says the comic's title refers to.

    Could be an oni-type creature, but I'm guessing it's a Red Demon, same class as Oscar. Probably not actually tougher than an angel, but depending on the contract struck with it may be more reliable/controllable than an angel that has forsaken the Old Law (..and of course angels that are still following the Old Law wouldn't ever work in this position, and just forget about trying to do anything with the Thorns.)

    Can't be Princess he only has 1 straight horn, princess has 2 curved horns.

    ALL HAIL THE GREAT RAK!!

    I use the same name in every game I ever play or forum I join (except the pretender on PSN that forced me to be RealOlinser). If you see an Olinser in a game or on a website, there's a high chance it's me, feel free to shoot me a message.

    The actual terms of success or failure were not stated on-page; the band of adventurers did successfully penetrate Yre's defenses. So did they make a bet on something like 'You will not be able to breach the treasure vault of the Grand Dragon' (pulled it off, albeit with casualties) or 'You will not be able to recover your boyfriend from Yre' (a fixed bet from the start, as it turns out he wasn't even there?)

    Well.. Allison though she had to fight an angel but still busted the place up.
    So we almost got to assume this is a step up from at least a young Angel.

    Ooh.. indeed, she thought she was going to deal with an angel. An angel her own trainer had fought before, and presumably could give specific tips and methods of how to try to defeat. Instead she gets something that is presumably at least as dangerous as that angel (Preem Vash would hardly trade down, after all) but with completely unknown capacities. That's not gonna be a good thing.

    Allison teacher, white chain saw that angel destroyed when they were both in the angel realm.
