Without anything to suggest image depth it looks like Meji is in an old person dry humping conga-line. Everyone smushed up close enough that her colon is going to start charging admission.

Direction of lighting also seems to be a touch wonky but thats excusable due to Tsuiraku's fondness for sticking luminescent bling in unholy places.

This is actually the original art, just resized because it was only one panel.

One down side of having resized this panel to fit in all the text is that it may confuse the casual reader as to who's in line with Meji. The woman behind her looks rather like a much older Sarine, and the man(?) on the left side of the panel looks like Jon wearing earrings. Of course, this won't be a problem in the hard copy, since anyone who buys the dead-tree version is going to know enough about the situation not to be confused.

Otherwise, this shows to very good advantage the benefits of redoing the text bubbles. The art is clearer, the text is much easier to read, and the whole thing has reduced clutter. All of these are good things.

Also reading the pages together for context helps... It takes only a few seconds to read a page, so they'll be one continuous stream of information for both book and archive readers. The old lady is behind Meji on the preceding and following pages. And being from Farrel, she'll most likely be shaded much darker than Sarine (which will, coincidentally, pop Meji into more prominence on the page).

I am that confused casual reader. That's my main reason for coming to the forum: It explains the art that I sometimes have trouble interpreting. Mostly useful during glowy magic battles, but apparently also when Meji is standing in line. ;)

Yeah, my first thought was "why is Meji saying these things right next to Jon and Sarine?" That might not actually be out of character but I didn't remember it, and it's not supposed to be the case here...
