Tekira wrote: The concept
As discussed, here is the topic for the collective re-read! The idea is simple: We're going to read 1 issue each week (see the schedule below) and discuss it in this topic. The 'week' will start each Monday, to avoid confusion over time-zones I will make post when we will start to discuss the next issue. As you can see, I've not scheduled all the arcs yet, I will schedule the other arcs when we get there. This time, there are no spoiler rules! This way, we can put chapters in a greater perspective. We can make up more rules as we go if necessary, but I think this is enough for now. Also, this is a great way to check the quality of the scans. Please notify me if you encounter links that don't work, missing or unreadable pages, etc. Extra note: I use the European date notation, that is d-m-y.

Specials
I've inserted the specials according to this list (credits for Noby!). This means the specials are inserted according to Italian chronological order. The specials are semi-canon, so they can feel a bit out of place sometimes, because they usually have nothing to do with the main story. I'm also not too sure about the placement of the Christmas specials and the WITCH On Stage special, but we'll see if it makes sense when we get there. If you have suggestions to make the order better, please let me know!

*NOTE* This list doesn't contain all the scanlated works. If you are looking for mini's and other specials, please visit the Comic Scan thread.

All links in the Comic Scan Thread should work! I know these links are outdated, I haven't had the time to replace them.

Time to read: Issue #122: Mathematically Possible




I'm terribly behind, I hope I will be able to catch up during the holiday (I am off work until January 7), but I also want to finish editing some re-scans I'm working on...

Dang, I'm really behind, but here are my thoughts:

Issue #119: Music in the Air 
I'm a little disappointed that Hay Lin's no longer with Eric, but I guess that's what happen when you lost touch with someone after they moved away. But Wesley is still cute. Had the writing been consistent even to the end of the comic series, I'm certain they would have written Wesley in more and we probably would have grown used to him like we did with Cornelia when she ended up with Peter. Don't get me wrong, Wesley is still cute and charming, and I do like his background in classical music. I think fall from Vivaldi's Four Seasons would fit Hay Lin very well. What I don't understand is why W.I.T.C.H. still based off references of Disney's series, like Finding Nemo is now Finding Meno in this issue, or when Will said that Matt's taking her to see the "Broadway" musical version of Beauty and the Orgre aka Beauty and the Beast in another issue. Are they afraid that W.I.T.C.H. will be bought by a different company in the future and thus, they can't use the official Disney names? But then explain some of the scenes in the Halloween special where Cornelia is Jack Sparrow and Joel is Mr. Incredible? There were even chibi drawings of the Guardians as Disney princesses!

Anyway, it was a very sweet and adorable issue. Their attempt to kiss many times feels too rushed in a relationship, but then again the latter issues are all rushed. Overall, I did enjoy this issue, very well-drawn and very adorable.

Issue #120: Lady Giga
Yes, we got to see Nashtar again...but darn it! It's only a glorified cameo! It would be very interesting if they had done a whole arc of the Guardians trying to protect Nash from the other four Runics because he betrayed them. At the same time, they have to worry about Lady Giga and her sisters. I would have liked to see Nash trying to prove that he's on their side by helping them counter Lady Giga, since he and Will share the same element of Energy. Speaking of which, Lady Giga's design actually reminded me of the Water Elemental Queen who helped defeated Dark Mother back in the 7th saga...probably because Giga wields a trident-shaped weapon. In any cases, this was a fun read, but sadly very short and very rushed as we get closer to the end of the comic series. Still, would be a very interesting arc all on its own.

Issue #121: After Ten Years
Yeah, this issue doesn't hold a candle to issue #50. The Guardians' possible future seemed sooo...unlikely, for a lack of a better word. We've never seen Taranee showing any interest in running, so a possible future of her as an Olympic athlete in this sport feels really out of place. Is it impossible? Well, no. Admittedly, I've heard of Olympic athletes never finding their calling until their early 20s in some sports, so it's possible that Taranee may have picked it up as after her high school years. But this is a comic series, so it makes it feel out of no-where for the readers. If they made her a photographer, a leading scientist, or a mathematician, it would seemed more likely. The same thing can be said for Irma. We never seen her so keen to become a teacher. (Oh, yeah?! What about when she taught in the Teach2bWITCH bus?!) Okay, no...that one doesn't count because she was teaching her students magic, something she enjoys and is good at. But we've never seen her good at academic studies such as math, English, science, etc. The only subjects she seemed to be good at are art and music, and had they made her a music teacher, that's probably a little more plausible. Heck, maybe have her become a swim coach? She taught Cornelia to swim a bit back in the 2nd arc and even timed Will a bit for her competition and she loves the water!

Will's, Cornelia's, and Hay Lin's futures are more plausible. I can probably see Will being so busy with work, especially if she and Matt broke up forever. The breakup would probably encouraged her to be more independent and hardworking, and eventually a successful business woman. But I have to agree with Will...that hairdo looked as if she was smacked by a powerful gust of wind and the hair just got stuck like that! But honestly, I'd prefer her as an accomplished fantasy novel writer...maybe this world's version of J.K. Rowling. ;p

Cornelia has been depicted as a bit of a drama queen before, and she loves the glamours, so an actress is possible. As for Hay Lin, quite possible, especially if she marries and she and her husband would take over the Silver Dragon when her parents retired, I could see her becoming a stay-at-home-mom first to raise her daughter while her husband manage said restaurant. I do prefer the indepent flight attendant more, but this job requires you to be away from your family a lot. Overall, this issue was a fun read, but it felt like it just shoe-horn issue #50 away and was shoved down our throat.

Issue #121: Mathematically Possible
I honestly don't have much of an opinion on this one. I'll admit, it does feel a little more realistic when it comes ot Irma being grounded due to her poor test scores, and showing us her struggle to study. The issue isn't bad or good...it just existed for me. That's pretty much it. And Irma, you could have just asked Taranee to help tutor you in math, but then again, the point was for us to see her learning how to be responsible and study herself rather than relying on others too much, especially when they're busy with their own lives.

Re: the fake Disney names - I doubt it was a byproduct of Disney erring on the side of caution in the event of the copyright changing hands, as Disney is pretty infamously protective of their properties (see: their lobbying for longer copyright extensions so they won't lose Mickey Mouse.) It was probably just the writers having fun (also, idk, if you're writing for a huge conglomerate, directly name-dropping their other series might leave a weird taste in your mouth - that'd be the problem I'd run into if I were a writer for Disney)

Thoughts on issue 114:
I think the girls were way too nosy in this one. It was none of their business and they did little to actually help. And they were very mean and superficial towards the new boy.

Positive points: there is a little bit more proof that Heatherfield is located in the US, since there is some native American stuff in the museum which only seems to have stuff related to Sheffield. I can't imagine why schools in Europe would-be have stuff like that. And this issue is easy to place on the time-line.

Thoughts on issue 115
This one is quite silly again. I don't think girls in the 18th century recieved any kind of education, apart from some etiquettes maybe. But seeing that the original countesses arrived from London per boat affirms my theory that Heatherfield is in the US. Also, if they are able to travel back in time, they could've used that to create more time to study the script in stead of magically knowing the script through improvisation. Actually, adding time travel to a story is rarely a good idea, because it creates more plot holes than it solves.

Thoughts on issue 116:
I kinda like this one. Too bad it's another "filler" episode though. I like that Will immidiately accepts Deans parents as her own grandparents. It took her a while to see Dean as a father figure. But maybe she never had grandparents from her mom or her biological dad. I like that James the fridge is making a comeback too.
 
Thoughts on issue 117:
The last of the 100% WITCH saga, finally! This one was quite odd. I don't have anything else to say about it though. I'll place it on the timeline around Christmas, because Irma shared a christmas story, it seems fitting.

Mooncloud's right. Terkia, since you're probably busy and we don't want to pressure and hassle you so much, I hope you don't mind if I post the link for the re-read this time?

If so, then time to re-read Issue #123: Lady Crash



Re-reading this issue, I think my thoughts on it is...WTF. More on that later...

Personally, I like Lady Giga and Kimikal a little better than Crash because at least their names and power seemed more convincing and imposing. Granted, Lady Crash is imposing and threatening in her own way, but only her power over car and chugging down gasoline seemed too comical. I can't take Crash that seriously. She gives me the impression of something from Transformers. As we come closer to the end, the comic issues are getting shorter, which doesn't leave a lot of room for imagination and growth in some aspects. Granted, if the later comics were as long as the older issues, maybe they would have had more pages and time to make someone as ridiculous as Lady Crash seemed more badass.

But it is what it is and to be honest, this was still a decent issue in its own way. Yeah, it's silly but it was still kinda fun and I honestly would rather have this than...several other issues about school and some background characters that I don't give a crap about. I'm supposed to care about some girl that Cornelia barely knew and she's moving away and that supposed to make me feel something? Yeah, how about you make her a secret magical being with batshit crazy power that forces the Guardians to fight then I'll probably give more of a damn.

This issue was very short. I think it showed a really interesting side of Cornelia and Peter's relationship though. It is nice to see that they are so happy together! I also had to laugh when Cornelia's mom said she was not responsible. Also, it made me smile when Peter called Cornelia magical at the end, such a nostalgic ending. :)

The care power and gas guzzling was a little odd too and definitely made me think of Transformers (which I don't like). Lady Crash just seemed very campy to me. As I said, it is also a shorter read than the early issues. I haven't read beyond this point, so I am hoping it starts to get deeper characters to go off of.

Yeah, a few of the episodes were available on iTunes podcasts. I only found four of them though! I wish there were more available, it's nice to listen to other people's perspectives!

Too bad that our lives are so busy these days, otherwise I think it would be very interesting for at least two of us to get together (via Skype or video call) and record new podcasts on all the comic issues, the animated series, the YenPress' rereleased version, etc.
