    EXACTLY. The updated graphics really make it obvious that these guys stick out like a sore thumb.

    Is that Buster Sword backwards?

    Yeah. It makes a bit more sense in the slums where everyone is armed, especially with the (non-playable) characters like Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie who are carrying more sensible SMG's. The slums get attacked by wild monsters regularly, so nobody bats an eye when members of the "Neighborhood Watch" dispatch them with automatic fire.

    Barrett's arm mounted gatling cannon and Cloud's giant sword (which is even weirder given that only members of Soldier used swords - yet somehow the weapon shop just... carries them) really stick out in the other sectors.

    It's Japan. You can always claim to be a cosplayer.

    I love how Cloud's character design fits so naturally with Mike's art style.

    The arm gun is peacebonded so it’s okay.

    I absolutely love this comic but I can't get myself to not look at the backwards buster sword

    I guess this is a Mike-po (like a Tychpo).

    Something working on the first try is a source of great suspicion.

    Cloud is just pulling a Kenshin.

    My favorite thing about this is how the Buster Sword can't fit entirely into one panel
