We made it to 440 pages! Woo! And right on the mark, we introduce Ajna's purest form, and one of my favorite designs in the entire comic - Nijibi Ajna, simply referred to as Nijibi (虹尾).

This design has gone through so many changes since I first explored the concept over ten years ago! I'm truly happy with how it looks and operates. What do I mean? You'll find out shortly!

I know how much it has to mean to Arven that we take notice of Nijibi on whose design, as she said, she'd been working well over a decade and all the motivation, the stubbornness, she sheer insistence of getting through all the way is still incredible to all of us who are met with this comic, regardless where we first began following it (as for me, that would be back when Inabe began explaining about the sword, around page 70). And it is, Arven, you deserve every prize in this world for making it all the way through without taking shortcuts with digital art or similar things. I can only imagine hours spent, colors wasted and pains in the hand nursed back to function.
You could have made this comic private, to remove it from deviantART and offer it only for the eyes of those who could offer profit, but you didn't. And I thank you for it from the bottom of my heart for deciding to leave this masterpiece for us mortals to enjoy. Not getting greedy has to be an aspect I appreciate the most in a human being. You are simply an inspiration.

Anyways, back to the original intention of this comment, I wanted to point out a particular detail on this panel, I have no doubt most of us won't pass without noticing, and that's Hielo's expression. That smile, it means so much more than we can see. It's joy and relief. Finally, since the day Flama died, Hielo can rest with the fact he won't be stabbed in the back. He's faced enough treason and false trust throughout the entirety of the comic to know that this is the right thing to do. Well done, Arven. So, so well done. I take my hat off for you.

The absolutely best part of this page for me is how while the rest of the Chakra heroes are shocked and surprised, Hielo just smiles with tears in his eyes. :aww: His expression is just the best. :clap:

Also, may I have a guess, based on previous pages?

Led is white
Hielo is red
Kuma yellow
Cheetah orange
Motyl green
and Orca blue.

So that would make C.Y. purple?
Also, it's cute how Led's is on top of her head. :3

I'm seeing a beautiful similarity to Amaterasu and Shiranui, wonderfully done!

Not gonna lie, I'm having mixed feelings about Nijibi's design, but I'll wait and see how it operates .3. And her name means... "rainbow tails", yes?

Nice if slightly plain design.

(And Hielo is definitely smiling.)

Nijibi looks.... really out of place. Like she got less detail or blending than everyone else.
