EDIT: Chapter Six has started!
The first page is available on Patreon (link above!)

It will be posted on DA starting next Saturday!
Stay tuned for an important poll to decide the comics' schedule!



Said nobody ever lol.

Hundreds of you guys saw this coming from a mile away, and to be honest, I'm pretty sure someone in the story saw it coming too ;) More on that in a few weeks.
But here we go, one more chapter of Chakra finished, only one more to go.

Man, what a ride this has been. Probably one of my favorite chapters to make, if not my top favorite at the moment. I've had this scene planned for literally ten years and it feels so good to get to this point at last.
And you guys played a huge part in this, thanks to your amazing support. Your help, especially on Patreon, is one of the reasons I was able to leave my job and work on my art full time, and I can't thank you enough for that.

Now, I'd like to take a minute to address the elephant in the room! About a year ago now, when we passed our $250 goal on Patreon, I made a poll asking which comic you wanted to be drawn weekly, Chakra or Africa. Up to this point, I've been updating Chakra every week, and Africa bi-monthly, however a large portion of you requested that it be the other way around, with Africa weekly and Chakra once every two months.

I haven't forgotten I promise, but I really wanted to get this chapter done before implementing the change, because I was having so much fun with it :)

Still, now that it's over, and the story is at its climax AND there is only one chapter remaining before Chakra is finished for good, would you guys still like me to swap the schedule?
I've asked the very same thing on Patreon, and I got mixed responses. A number of you wanted me to stay true to the poll, which is very reasonable, while a few others are curious about how Chakra will wrap up and would like it to be completed first.
What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

In the meantime, enjoy this page!

Chakra will be taking a (well-deserved I hope!) one-month break to allow me to prepare for the upcoming chapter. Thank you for understanding!

Can someone explain this to me? I am very confused
MiladyPearl Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2019  Student General Artist
I think that jackal is actually dead and he was the kuma's body puppet so it's mean Kuma joins the dark side and he is a zodiac demons now

AccaliaFox Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So the demon that was possessing Jackal possessed Kuma after stabbing him, turning him grey too, and then Kuma returned to the demons and had them attack Jackal? I'm saying this cus of the scars Jackal had was probably made by the demons (the page before this that one demon said "we didn't know jackal was your friend!") and because when we see Jackal collapsing we see the purple aura transferring from him to Kuma.

 It's gonna be one of those scenes where the friend is trying to kill you but is actually possessed by a demon so you gotta snap him out of it?

Beutiful artwork like usual. 

I like how you have draw their expression. Awsome comic, great characters and impressive scenario. 

If I don't have wish you earlier, I wish you a Happy New Year, my friend. 

I know, I'm pretty much later, but you know better later than too late.

I'm so used to realistic and logical comics, I forget just how fantastical this comic is. It's to the point I did not see this coming at all iOS Tears Of Joy Emoji Button (3/???) 
Rinworks Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would suggest finishing the comic that is closest to completion (Chakra) because you can give your other projects focus once its finished. It'll clear up your schedule and you can manage it all better.

Aioros-sama Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Here's an idea. Why not post one page of Chakra one week, and Africa the next, then Chakra again, and so on? That way, both mangas would get treated equally and fans of both can be content. Neither would get kinda pushed to the Background because of a long wait between posts.

I hope In the final chapter the heroes find a way to save Kumi and Ryu and still defeat Steel once and for all. Also, the ship wars! Who’s going to end up with who!?

Wait I’m so confused on what just happened on this page
Bazil3282 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2019  Hobbyist Writer
It just turned out that Jackal was merely a meat puppet all this time, and the daemon our heroes were warned about has just taken the form of Kuma (courtesy of Kuma being stabbed by the sword, and then gradually corrupted/possessed as that "gray matter" was spreading over his body).

More or less.
BLUE-TRASH Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2019  Student Digital Artist
Kuma being possessed and Jackal was someone else, I'm not very sure.

Look at it this way: If you complete Chakra, it'll give you the opportunity to plan for other things or start a new project in place of it.
babybrass Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2019  Student Digital Artist
I would personally prefer you finish Chakra before switching the schedule. I love Africa with all my heart but I've kind of grown up with Chakra (given that I first followed you when I was 12 and am now 18) and honestly, I just really want to see how this all goes down. Plus it seems kind of silly to get all the way into the middle of the climax and slow down then, whereas Africa is still in the process of ramping up

Kuma musta come outta his butt.

I’d like it to stay the same, since it’s a close to done.

iamSketchH Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019
I think you'd have to ask in a neutral setting (like a poll) instead of here on this page. After all, the majority of the people here are going to say "Chakra" since they're tuning in mostly (if not exclusively), for Chakra.

Meanwhile, those who tune in almost (if not) exclusively for Africa, and who voted to see more Africa in the last poll won't see this. I, personally still prefer to have more updates of Africa. I like this, but I subscribed for the other. Even though I subscribed 5 years ago, it still feels like the story hasn't progressed much at all, all things considered. 

Of course, now that I think of it, you could also poll your Patreon people since they're the one paying to see your work. See what they think (if you haven't already):D
WulfWhizzlerr Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahh I thought this might happen! Can't wait to see everything continue to come together-
good-ee-hoo Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019
i prefer Chakra over Africa!!
Woah. Darn. I'm just speechless. :o I know, many people were saying that Kuma is somehow involved in there, but I didn't actually believe it because I didn't want everyone's favourite pupper to end up on the dark side, one way or another. Now, I really, really don't like this purple aura. I thought that Jackal was just an illusion due to it, but now we see it leave Jackal - and instead, Kuma is the one glowing. So... something that used to possess Jackal now possesses Kuma? :plotting: :o :panic:  

While I think that I love Africa more than Chakra, I still believe it would be better to keep the schedule and finish Chakra first before focusing on Africa, especially since we are so (relatively) close to the end. By the way, if you are unsure, why not make another poll on the matter? I think that now that everyone is on edge with the latest developments, people may change their minds about what story they want to see more of. ;)
