I'm going back to once-a-week updates for a little while, things have gotten a little hectic/stressful irl. Hopefully things will settle down soon and i can build up a buffer and return to twice weekly updates again.

This was another page I really enjoyed drawing. Everyone knows who the others are now (excluding Lilith's mom, she doesn't get to introduce herself on this page).

Lilith untransforming was fun to draw. I spent a good amount of time trying to think of how to show the untransformation in terms of special effects and decided that an explosion of magical glowy feathers worked just fine since her outfit has a wing theme.

While working on the car on this page I realized something: I don't know how to draw cars. It looks like I do, which is great, but when it comes down to it I find myself questioning the smallest things like "do side-view mirrors really look like this????". It's just never occurred to me to actually take note of the exterior and interior of a vehicle to see all the little details in it because I might have to draw it one day, but the good thing about Xeno taking place on a planet that's not Earth means I can just say "alien technology" as for why it doesn't look exactly like cars do here on Earth.

So I'm not sure how long the once-weekly updates will go on for, but hopefully it's not too long.

Beautiful page (as usual). I giggled at "POP". :D

I hope you can keep the once-weeklies going for a good long while! :)

Thanks so much! I hope so too, I really liked doing two updates a week but life's trying to strangle me lately so I've gotta dial it back for the time being and try to get myself back together. So updates only once a week for a while, hopefully I can get to two updates a week again soon.

Yes, everything she had pre-transformation save for her magic-restricting bracelet (which broke in chapter 1) has returned post-transformation.

Oh dang. That was awkward. She'll eventually learn how to detransform at will. ^_^ :P
This is interesting, because a lot of time, magical girls don't want their parents to know that they are magical girls. This is really funny. :3:3

Breaking tropes and stereotypes left and right!

Although I think the fact that magic is a pretty common thing to see in their world (and that Lilith can use magic without being transformed) is part of why she didn't feel the need to hide it from her mom.

Was it a timing thing, or did Canan's handshake actually transform her back? I'm guessing Asher can't actually see her unless she's transformed... *waits to see if correct*

Honestly I don't think I ever decided if it was the handshake or that transformation "time was up". I think in the beginning I wanted it to be caused by the handshake given that later on there's like... a special handshake thing they'll end up doing so Lilith can transform, but the magical girl form is actually more like a magical back-up, last resort power surge if the person/people the person is with are in grave danger and is really physically draining so if the person that transformed isn't used to it, the transformation won't hold for very long.

But I'm still working out the finer details of it. And Asher can see her now regardless of whether she's transformed or not, because the "initial contact" with Canan was made and it canceled out Lilith's invisibility to humans.

His hand was too cold and suddenly she felt the need to be back in more weather appropriate attire.

Or, her hand became cold at his touch because she likes him...

You think so? I think it makes sense (technology is pretty advanced in-comic).

She left early, she knew that Lilith would get in some kind of trouble.

Lilith:"Yay maybe everything will be back to normal now."
Me:"Were it so easy."
On a sidenote, about billing the bracelet makers for her coat.

"Mom we should sue the company that made the bracelet cuz my arm got burned and frickin' hurts and they ruined my overcoat."

So... drive back home, get a new coat, try again? Maybe not though. Life or death fights tend to put a damper on the day.

More along the lines of go home and sleep for the rest of the day after taking a bath, I'd think.

You know you are allowed to use google images as references? :-)

Luckily, even on earth, cars looks different. I mean, different brands, different models ... hard to find anything all would have in common.

I know, and I usually do but I think I just got lazy with it this time since it's kinda part of the background/behind the characters and isn't super important just yet.

That's true, wow I didn't even think of that. *bonks head* Ya learn something new every day!

Great page! Keep up the good work :D On a side note, i read the pop as like a mental snap and am fully expecting her to go crazy and attack them on the next page ( i know its not going to happen but the thought makes me giggle a little every time)

That's totally not what happens but that'd be interesting to see.
