Ghibli-ing! 10/29/2011

by Joe

The Ghibli Museum was pure magic :D They didn’t let people take pictures inside, but I’m glad that rule is in place because you really do appreciate the place more through your eyes, instead of through your camera’s viewfinder.

I did manage to take a few pictures outside, though!

As a huge fan of Studio Ghibli’s work (Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, etc.), the whole place was an emotional and goosebump-y experience. Every little detail they put into the exhibits and even the building (which was designed by Miyazaki himself, I read!) is awe-inspiring. If you’re a fan of Ghibli’s work, drop what you’re doing now and go. Just go :D If you’re not as big a fan as I am, you may not get the same feelings of inspiration, but even as an aspiring animator or admirer of animation, the Ghibli Museum is definitely a worthwhile and unforgettable place to visit at least once in your lifetime :D

Thanks for waiting for the scene! Here it is as promised! :D

Enjoy Scene 32 – “The Magister – Part Two”!

Tsuris on October 29, 2011 at 9:18 am

Is it just glitching or not uploaded cause I cant see it?

Power on October 29, 2011 at 9:44 am

D: No fair, take me with you.

Luxeraph on October 29, 2011 at 11:40 am


Hehe, same here. It’s 5:37 AM here so I think I’m going to sleep now :P. No good-night story for me T_T

ZiggyPox on October 29, 2011 at 12:38 pm

If you were the most interesting man in the world, they’d let you touch the exhibits. Unfortunately that honor belongs to the guy here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-4zfsy6rsM

JZombie on October 29, 2011 at 1:14 pm

It isn’t up yet.

And Joe, you should tell them you’re doing a paper on the museum, and would like pictures for it :P

emokirby on October 29, 2011 at 2:12 pm

this is my first coment but is no scene!!

vampire super boy on October 29, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Curse you Author Joe! How dare you leave us swinging in the wind until November?
Oh well, take your sweet time I guess. You have the right to leave us hanging anyway.

Anon on October 29, 2011 at 4:56 pm

whyyyyy. i wanted to watch this scene. now i can’t watch anything for another week.

john mitri on October 29, 2011 at 5:32 pm

what is happening??

earl pineda on October 29, 2011 at 8:50 pm

@earl pineda- author joe is going to a museum and will be back with the update in few hours so just wait a little longer and come back and i am sure the episode will be up by then, still not use to time difference since I live in the US and he’s in Japan still right?

sykes on October 29, 2011 at 10:09 pm


Noble 7 on October 29, 2011 at 10:12 pm

Still not here? Oh christ.

Anon on October 29, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Author Joe, I hate you for this! You have killed my last pet zombie! He need this episode so badly and you diden’t put it up! Grrr….

A Fan on October 29, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Vampires are more powerful than Samuel ? Ôo… incredible, since his capacities are amazing. I thought he was like the best of the best when it comes to mind-crafting or moving objects with his mind.

Dairadh on October 29, 2011 at 10:58 pm

Hey Joe, I wanted to ask you a question.

Are you a fan of anime ?

If yes, which one(s) ?

Razorhead on October 29, 2011 at 11:14 pm

Thanks for waiting for the scene, everyone! :D
@Razorhead – I am a fan of anime! Mostly Studio Ghibli’s work, since I feel that they capture the heart and spirit of Japan in the most magical way :D It’s been very, very long since I’ve seen other anime!

Joe on October 29, 2011 at 11:19 pm


Riou on October 29, 2011 at 11:44 pm

I wonder why Dominik didn’t just ‘marry’ Katherine once they both became elders and Samuel a living mind.

Happy Vampire on October 30, 2011 at 12:16 am

Seeing this update just makes me remeber that Andrius is still out there doing who knows what.
His plan is seems more fearsome than the ‘vampire army’ plan Dominik has.

blinx92 on October 30, 2011 at 1:10 am

can you accept my on email/msn??? keep up the good work

Ricky on October 30, 2011 at 2:24 am

cewl :D

Rasmus on October 30, 2011 at 2:25 am

As soon as I finished watching this scene, I was like, “Shit…” Things just got insanely complicated.

Luio on October 30, 2011 at 3:03 am

That kind of place exists???? I wanna go there and see that robot thing! And nice work on the comic as usual…

Shade Person on October 30, 2011 at 3:39 am

oh my god!dragan is andy and dominik father!

vampire super boy on October 30, 2011 at 4:06 am

So, you decided to do a longer scene
Hey, The Pocalypse in spanish will get more people seeing it, don’t you think?
If you agree, contact me to erikyto98@hotmail.com

Erik on October 30, 2011 at 4:16 am

So i’m taking a guss here and saying that their love katherin died after

Christian on October 30, 2011 at 4:22 am


Tsuris on October 30, 2011 at 6:22 am

And may I be the first to say… HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!

Dreamdealer on October 30, 2011 at 6:40 am

Joe, my eyes can’t take anymore widening! SO MANY PLOT TWISTS :o

Mini on October 30, 2011 at 8:50 am

So, sam is the one who lead to vampires having the power of the mind. It seems to be implied that’s all he has. That does mean inner joe is not samual. Joe has all the powers that vampires have, perhaps more. samual didn’t hide from the sensors, where Joe can. No indication of superspeed or strength. No invulnerability (shy of simply stopping anything from hitting him). It seems, since the vampires learn all their powers, they could use joe, for his. only problem-they cant just force him to teach them, as his makes it so they can’t rip him apart, if he trains his mind, since, unlike samual, he can actually beat vamps at that.

for anyone who doesnt care to read the speal, Joe seems to be more powerful than the vamps when the portion of his mind that controls his power isn’t suppressed. (yes, I mean Joe, not Samual. Joe’s mind is where the power came from, i think, so the body won’t remember them. If it can, with Samuals mental discipline (even with relatively low power), the colony, and a huge area around, could be made safe.

also, the elders. so what happens if samual meets them now?

Some Guy on October 30, 2011 at 9:12 am

Fuck I knew it would be Andrius and Dominik. Who else would be the bastards that betrayed him?

Anon on October 30, 2011 at 1:10 pm


earl pineda on October 30, 2011 at 2:06 pm

I nerded all over, im a huge Ghibli fan XD

Tsu on October 30, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Hahahaha! xD Just Sam’s luck! :P And i also want to go to Ghibli Museum! ;(

frida on October 30, 2011 at 6:28 pm

Katherine is the one Elder that is part of the 3 that keeps messing around with things, and i bet she’s the one that was stopping Dom’s Zompires from attacking Bernie. She probably also has something to do with Samuel being inside of Joe’s body. That just reminded me about Adrius and Cross, I wonder what those 2 are up to? Even though he is kinda evil, I like Andy. and Dom isnt tooo bad… or he wasnt. he’s starting to cause problems now. And now that we’re on the topic of vanishing charecters, WHATS HAPPENING TO Greybane and ScruffleBeck. (and Dr. Nick, though we dont realy care about him.

Leviticus on October 31, 2011 at 3:46 am

Great… Joe just made deals with Sams two greatest enemies… He helped Andrius escape AND made a pacting deal with Dominik that could also have implications for Sam since the two are the same person now and a promise from one is a promise from both(three if you count Dark)

NeoWarrior on October 31, 2011 at 6:21 am

joe the pocalypse is awesome and you shouldnt stop making them anytime soon

keiss on October 31, 2011 at 6:57 am

This relationship between Katherine and Samuel reminds of the relationship between Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard in Inception with the creating of worlds in the dream state that is, also this makes Andrius seem even more devious than he ever was before, I wonder if he carries the same hatred as his father?

SpiritOfAdventure on October 31, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Anyone remembers that Dom called Katherine ‘Exile’? :)
Though,Sam gotta search for a new body. There are loads out there. >_>

Happy Vampire on October 31, 2011 at 2:59 pm

my mind=blown

Mikado on October 31, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Holy sweet jeebus, I just started reading this webcomic yesterday. From the beginning. SO GOOD. JOE, YOUR WORK IS SO GOOD. I am thoroughly enjoying the lore and the story you’re creating!

Pollux on October 31, 2011 at 10:16 pm

woooot i love Sam he is away much cooler that Joe (=P dont get offended haha)

Dranlord on October 31, 2011 at 11:55 pm

her her joe: he he thay have sine posts berine: ‘pokes robot’ ‘goes the poke agen robot: IF YOU POKE ME ONE MORE TIME I WILL KILL YOU YOU ROBOSIUT MAKEING GEEK!!!!!!!! berine: he he he :-)

the slayer on November 1, 2011 at 5:05 am

@the slayer
Well,welcome to this group of posters ‘n’ the author. Your mind will be probably blown.

Happy Vampire on November 1, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Wait a minute. Samuel mentioned machines earlier, so he knows of the Pocalypse well enough. And he mentioned a living mind. Since Joe was unconscious from a coma, maybe someone had attempted to put him in Joe’s body, but failed since Joe was still conscious after all. And Inner Joe was created. So What I am saying is: Samuel became the Superego of Joe, and the alien presence brought Inner Joe, who might be the Id.

Shade Person on November 2, 2011 at 2:30 am

Does sam mean that his powers in the real world are less than vamps? Because his powers in the dream world seem pretty well formed.

Randomman on November 2, 2011 at 3:33 am

@Happy Vampire
About ‘the slayer’, it’s pretty darned incoherent (and less then clever) but he’s probably reffering to the Gibli pictures.

1st Picture
Joe: “Hehe, they have sign posts”

3rd Picture
Bernie: *Pokes Robot*

4th Picture
Bernie: *Goes to poke the robot again*
Robot: “If you poke me one more time I will kill you robosuit making geek!!”
Bernie: “Hehehe…” :D

So yeah, pretty much tons of unfunny.

SevyTehSavvy on November 2, 2011 at 6:24 am

Andrius and Dominik xD Those two bad sons of elders are messed with this. I knew this!

przemyslawkk on November 2, 2011 at 8:34 am

@Randomman I think it means that originally Sam was weaker in dream walking/mind crafting than any vampire he taught, that *and* any power outside of the dream world came from the new body ‘Joe’.
While Sam was weaker than Vampires in overall power he made up for it by learning precise control of what he had.
Combine precision with Joe’s arsenal of goodies (invulnerability, super speed, super strength, endurance, and whatever unknowns he is suffuse with) and you have Sam surpassing Vampire-kind immediately.
On a related note I think the green ‘static’ was Sam’s mindform entering ‘Joe’

sh4d0wfl4re on November 2, 2011 at 9:33 am
