Shouldn't Jata be in a pokiball sitting on Sabrina's Dad's trophy shelf?

Isn't his wrong arm broken? I mean Deadeye stopped his right hand and I thought he simply bended it beyond believe...

I don't know guys, that look doesn't look like a "I will never come back to this crazy town!" look. It looks more like a "You realize, of course, this means war."™ look. I think Jata will be back someday- as a true villain.

Well I guess this arc is just about wrapping up! (Probs after a strip or two)

I wonder if we're gonna get a Christmas arc though, all the previous Christmas strips have marked the end of their respective arcs.

But seeing that we only have less than a month, I doubt Rick could pull off a festive arc in so short of a time period.

Oh well. Guess I'll keep my hopes up and wish for the best :)


EDIT: I just checked, guess previous Christmas arcs were written in under a month. In that case, looking forward to it! XD

It's even possible that Jungle Fever will go on with its due consequences until Christmas. (Maxwell must still talk to Sabrina, Keene must organize his plan B and deal with Kari, Grape may decide that after all love is not about same-species after all [*brick'd*], Fido and Fox still must talk...oh, and there's still hope to see a REAL wedding under the mistletoe by then :D )

The point after a relationship ends and the other person is like "we can still be friends". Yeah, it's often a myth.

Fido and Sabrina look really cute together there in the first panel. At least they don't have to hide their relationship anymore.

Okay, so Sabrina keeps her cool pretty well (better than Fido there).
But it's a more accurate definition (For what I've seen) when she doesn't want anything romantic with you and uses the "let's be friends" card as a Monopoly Jail card.

I came back from Babylon Garden and all I got was this new black spot.

Sabrina is more trouble than what she's worth is what Jata's probably thinking. =P

Now that Jata's gone, wonder what Grape is thinking? X3

Funny? Perhaps you've confused funny with hysterical. Clearly Jata is overcome with joy at the prospect of staying buddies with the Babylon Gardens gang.

Or not...

Hmmmm, now that I mention it, the color scheme Fido has somewhat resembles that of Pohatu, I mean, his eyes are orange, his markings are brown, and has light brown/cream on the rest of his body

Ricky, I hope this isn't the last we see of Jata. He's a madly cool character. Cooler than a one-arc wonder.

The plus side of being a leopard is that no one will notice that blackeye. it's also said that the Milton's garden is full of spots and it will take moths to get rid of them

And yes, that face screams for a crushing hug and friendship.

Oh, wow, what a miserable defeat for Jata. :P What he can do now is only return to his lost micronation angry, morose and bruised. Realize your errors and do excuses, don't be a jerk till the end... Funny the embarrassment of our hero Fido. ;) Pretty good idea still be friend with him, Sabrina, but would be better to don't never go to him at Feraga, at least not alone, but married with Fido.

Was Fido who did broke his left arm when he saved him? Uncle Deadeye blocked his right arm. If is so, Fido is really strong in water. ;) If was Uncle Deadeye who broke it, would have been a bad pain to Jata because of the way who Fido grabbed it, but fortunately he was numb...

Actually, I see it more of a "You humiliated me, defeated me, broke me...I hate you. And I never want to see you again" kind of look. So, in that sense, I don't think Jata will come back.

Earlier, Rick said he was taking a week off after this arc to work on "other projects" but after that it'll probably be a Christmas arc maybe a Thanksgiving one-off.
