little page of "wussat?"
Explaining terms and lines that pop up in the comic
and....uh...you might not understand. (Email me if you
see something else you want explained.) Note that this
might contain spoilers if you're reading this page before
reading the comic for some reason.
- Evitsu Evitsu - Literally
translates to "Lovely Lovely." Is more
slang for "it's a lovely day and you're
looking lovely too." First seen used by
Hunter in Chapter 11 of Demonic Boppu.
From EE #1
- "the death god is covering his
daughter's ears" - Refers to the
devils Mugendie and Sevitsuna. Mugendie appears
in Demonic Boppu, but his daughter is
only mentioned once, in Chapter 12, by Pyx.
Sevitsuna is the goddess of Love.
- "official idiot hall leader"
- Refers back to a comment made by Malice at the
beginning of Chapter 11 of Demonic Boppu.
- Note: During most of the semester demons
can't leave campus - Just as it says.
For some unknown reason, demons who are students
cannot leave campus while classes are in session.
They're only allowed off campus during special
weekends and breaks. Demons who aren't students
or faculty generally aren't allowed on campus
either. (And yes, there's patrols on the campus
borders. It's rather strict.)
- "If you didn't grow up, you couldn't
have sex." - Peacock says this
because, in fact, baby form demons don't have
From EE #2
- Havoc on campus? - Normally he'd
have no reason to be on campus, but he sorta
pulled rank (being the crown prince's boyfriend
and all) to get on campus for a few minutes.
- sheet scores - The demon term
that merges sheet music and music scores. Demons
write their music in a slightly different format
- "my hairdresser can" -
Referring to Hunter, of course.
- Caiitsu - A long series of very
extensive training classes and tests that some
Verphes choose to undergo. If a Verphe can reach
the black level in the classes (the highest
rank), then it makes it much easier for them to
become a runner for the royal family. This is a
very desired and enviable positon. (Verphe
normally function as transport vehicles when
they're adults.) The royal family usually employs
about 30 Verphes for this purpose, with a dozen
of them being in active duty at one time. The
royal family will not hire a Verphe that doesn't
have a black level rank in their Caiitsu
- "because that's what the Kuay-clan
does" - Here RoseN is referring to
the fact that not all Verphes bother with the
Caiitsu training, since it's not required for
normal transport work. Roz's family, however,
over the last few million years, has dedicated
itself to producing new runners for the royal
family. The most recent one was Roz's great aunt
Suzi, who is seen several times in Demonic
Boppu. The Kuay family has had so many of
its members become royal runners, that eventually
the Crowne gave the family the permission to use
the suffix "-clan" with their name.
(This is usually limited to Synth dragons,
Stellar dragons, Nightmare phoenixes, and Smoke
- "you have a healer with you"
- Salt is referring to the fact that Sympliss
dragons, despite their small size, are naturally
gifted healers. However, it take a lot of
training to make this gift useful.
- "I had to get a special tutoring
pass..." - Malice says this because
normally she wouldn't be able to go on campus.
Since she didn't have any real academic reason,
Malice went to her brother and used her
connections to get on campus.
- three/four months - Months in
Hell are 40 days long. So in saying this, Malice
and Peacock haven't seen each other in person in
about 140 days. Over four months on our calendar.
From EE #3
- The uniforms - I'm lazy, but you
might be able to notice that the male and female
uniform shirts have different coloring. The male
has a light stripe in the middle, and the female
has the dark stripe. So Azo, who's technically
both male and female, is usually seen wearing the
male uniform top.
- Cell? - Yes, the demons have
cell phones. However, usage of them is absolutely
prohibited in classrooms (they don't work), which
is why Peacock ran out. They work better than our
cell phones too.
- "leave your cloister?!"
- Mitzu here is making fun of the fact that Kae
rarely leaves their room, and is usually crammed
off in some tight space. (Usually under his bed.)
- supra grada voice - As the note
says, this means "flawless and of perfect
clarity/pitch." Like the Verphes and
running, the Nightmare phoenixes were created to
sing (for the most part). When they first reach
their mid form, they usually take a voice test to
see how good their voice is. Scores range from 1
(lowest) to 12 (highest), and the marker
"duvos". Duvos means that the singer's
voice isn't good enough yet for a 1. Nightmare
phoenixes often compete for choice singing jobs
in the temples, and will train to get a score of
12. What Mitzu is saying is that when Peacock
took his first voice test, he scored a perfect
12, which is almost unheard of.
- "-line" - The term
used in demon music for chords. Refers to how the
notes are written on score sheets.
From EE #4
- "Uncle Kishu" - You finally
get to meet Denbue Kishu! I created him a long time ago,
but never go around to drawing the story he was supposed
to be in. He's on campus because he teaches art classes.
- "-shum" - This is a term used
when you're addressing a relative that is separated from
you by several generations. Denbue isn't really Salt's
direct uncle (they do still have the same last name
though). Since Denbue is almost 450,000 years older than
Salt, the younger demon uses "-shum" in
reference to him. The fact that Salt also calls him
"Uncle" means that he still keeps in somewhat
regular touch with his younger relations.
- Yes, Roz really does drink all the damn time.
- "Don't fucking fuck up you stupid fucking fucker!" is
my homage to Blink-182, and a few other bands.
- "Vatue!" (seen in the crowd's words) - a term used by
crazed demon fangirls. Sort of like randomly squealing "Buttsex!"
From EE #5
- "..that time we were in Dessonde.." -- The
lyrics to the song that Peacock sings in part 5 were written by
Havoc. The lyrics relate, roughly to things that happened when he
and Olivine were in Dessonde. I'm not sure if it relates to
Chapter 12 of Demonic Boppu or not. ^^;
- "..I laughed so hard I nearly choked.." --
Making fun of myself here. When I laugh too long, I start choking.
- "Ever since we grew up..." -- I realize that
Roz's line here is a bit misleading. While it may seem they've
been "grown up" for a long time, it's really probably
only been around 25-30 years. (Very short time for demons.)
- OMG, shirtless Salt=squee! And, uh... demons don't have nipples.
They're not mammals.
- Who are these people?! Er, demons?! -- I had a hard time
figuring out how to end the comic, so shuddup. The end of the
comic skips forward a few thousand years. So, who are all these
- Pekidante - You've seen Pekidante
before, and I've been waiting years to draw him in a comic. He was
hinted at in the ending chapter of Demonic Boppu, and also
appeared as a baby on a few pages earlier in Evitsu Evitsu.
- Clarion - (light blue hair, blue eyes)
Malice and Peacock's oldest daughter.
- Amerayne - (dark blue hair, green
eyes) The 2nd daughter. Amerayne eventually plays guitar for
Violet North, and also is a fairly popular solo artist.
- ? - To be honest, I haven't come up
with a name for the 3rd daughter yet. She's the little red stellar
dragon baby flying around wanting cake.
- Violet - The adopted daughter of Salt
and Rosen. The little purple kitt does look like she could be
their kid, but it's just coincidence.
- And yes, Malice is pregnant with twins.
And that's all! E-mail me if you have any more questions.
