Where did those bandaids come from? And that wristwatch? Bananas don't even have wrists!

One common theory as to why magical girls don't get interrupted (see: shanked) during their transformation sequence is because it takes place in the blink of an eye and the process is just slowed down for the audience to observe (see: padding).

Personally, I like to think it works more like this.

Nicely done. Your expressions and color are really great. It's been fun to see you just get better and better at this.
Plus, the hand slap is funny. And I love the cranky banana.

@melaredblu: This page is the most hilarious thing I've seen this week! I love it.

That is gorgeous. This is probably the prettiest page I've seen from you so far. The colour work is fanstastic. New level stuff.

Confirm, Banana Peel Monster is my favourite monster now.

And I agree, the colouring on this page is really top notch!

You guys are making me all smiley here! I will say that this has been my favorite page so far, so I'm glad you all got a kick out of it!

One of the (many) great things I noticed when I re-read the series before doing the April Fools strip was your ability to make expressions out of almost anything.
That banana expression in panel 2-it's checking it's watch, right?*-is wonderful. The expression with the glove, especially in 5, is great, and the last panel, without any borders, is a hoot.
*Okay, a sentient banana peel is insanely clever, and putting a wristwatch on it raises it to wacky insane clever.

@groovykinda: Expressions used to be a weak point for me, so it makes me really happy to hear that. I have to give a lot of credit to the author of Lackadaisy Cats, because her expressions tutorial really opened up my eyes. Without it to show me what I was doing wrong and how to do it better, this comic would undoubtedly be rife with snout-face, sweatdrops, and unbearable stock anime expressions.

I don't like to make references, but the last part reminds me of Bayonetta; slap away the enemy's hand because they can't interrupt the spell!

@Scylla225: I've never played Bayonetta, but I'm not surprised this kind of thing has been done elsewhere. It makes way more sense than the enemy just politely standing there and waiting.
