Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Sorry for taking a while. I had some stuff going on, and It wouldn't have been a good idea for me to rush through the pages.
But currently I am working on Episode 4 and the season is going very smoothly.
Already rooting for the evil guy.
@Djoing: You're rooting for Jeff Probst?
Sure, but if he's voted off early I may switch to the guy on panel 11.
alright! sfc is back! it feels like it's been a while since i've seen new sfc stuff.
panel 3: i guess she's some sort of detecive? merge boot.
panel 4: minion? seriously? i don't know what to say here... except that if this guy is somehow able to evoke the "facebook minion meme", he'll be funny.
panel 5: he's gonna fake it 'til he makes it. i think he could be fun. yeah bro, i totally watched that season of survivor. the spring season. yeah man! the one where that guy won.
panel 6: for some reason, i can't tell if this character is male or female. awkward!! it'll be obvious later on, and i think it's the mouth that's throwing me off; it's the same mouth that prussia had a lot. i guess female. anyway, being a casting agent has to help a little bit in a game like survivor. wonder if this blue kangaroo will cast the right people for an alliance.
panel 8: he's totally a dragon ball guy. rooting for him to get his shirt ripped off in a challenge.
panel 9: hey, she's got the same hair as the detective up there on panel 3! also, i think she's a shapeshifter, and her other form is going to be creepy.
panel 10: i think this is a splatoon inkling girl? cool! not much else to go on, but she's very observant of all the weirdos that got cast.
panel 11: i kinda hope this guy only speaks in evil laughter.
is the twist "superpower people vs. non-superpower people"? that seems like it'll be kinda unfair in challenges. there will probably be more rules put in place, but then why would it be a season gimmick? is it the psychological effect of not being able to use your superpowers? guess i'll wait and see.
@Congo: It's probably not good for the Minion that I have no idea what the Facebook Minion Meme is... and Panel 6 is a female roo.
And for the twist. It plays out in a way that I find works. (At least as of Ep 4)
Oh boy! Preview time, let me see who we got in this group... 20 players... awesome. Looks to be a Brains vs Brawn type of deal.
Panel 3: She seems to have a good head on her shoulders, and I think it's going to be fun seeing how this investigator plays this game.
Panel 4: Minion. Uggghhh... well, we knew it was coming eventually, lol. Probably SWSU's first boot character like Buddy was.
Panel 5: Surfer bro dude. Might be a crossover of both Christy brothers, so that'll be fun, haha.
Panel 6: She's a cutie, has an accent reminiscent of Claus', but I think she won't be as overhearing as Claus was. Hopefully.
Panel 8: Dragonball Z! He seems to have a positive vibe about him, which I really like. Could be a good merge threat to win?
Panel 9: I have no idea what to make of her. She looks normal, but she's probably going to be the Hash of the season and some big twist will pop up regarding her.
Panel 10: Hmmm... I have no idea what to make of this Inkling. She looks like one of the more athletic types, so she'll be strong like a dingo. Just don't get cocky there, Juli. :P
Panel 11: Dis guy doe. OTTNN up the edgic charts. He's going to be so much fun... hopefully. XD
@TJBambi93: You know I do love my twists in SFC :3
This season is no exception
@SWSU-Master: What's next? Kim Possible, Enter, Frost, and Survivor Critic return as tribe leaders for each tribe? Two normals and two supers?
Oh crap, I shouldn't give people ideas, haha. XD
It's back! It's back! It's back!
Finally! I'm looking forward to what this new season has to offer. So we've got a Weak But Skilled tribe facing off against an Unskilled But Strong one, like Brains vs. Brawn 2.0? This should be interesting.
Thoughts on characters so far:
Panel 3: Hmm... Probably going to be a smart analytical type. Could be either a well-meaning honest type or an arrogant controlling type. We'll have to see.
Panel 4: Whatever this thing is, it looks like it's going to be the energetic hammy comic relief.
Panel 5: Kind of oblivious surfer-dude. Could be amusing, although that kind of shtick can get old after a time.
Panel 6: Very, very French. Thankfully, probably can't cheat as much as Enter. Still, I'm a little concerned about another manipulator.
Panel 8: Looks like a cross between Mac and Eric. Not too interesting yet, but a source of positivity is always nice.
Panel 9: Hmm... May be either armed with powers to control the game or a total red herring who thinks they're armed with powers to control the game. This'll be interesting.
Panel 10: Noticing the cast full of supers, but only having the power of turning into a squid? I think I like this person already.
Panel 11: AAAAAAAAAAA!
More news as it comes in.
@Friend of Fennecs: Lets just say for the Super Powers.... Some of them are a little out there. Panel 10's is just one of the very odd ones.
And very reasonable response to Panel 11
MAKE HIM ALIGN WITH THE DOUCHE ON THE BOTTOM AND HAVE HIM DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS ELIMINATION SUPER EARLY
@Vilecheese: Now that would be funny
@SWSU-Master: It would also be completely in character.
HOLY FREAKING SHIT I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS RIGHT NOW!
Panel 3: Seems pretty cocky, but she might be interesting.
Panel 4: Dear Lord, the Minions virus has infected SFC! QUICK, GET THE MEDIC!
Panel 5: Ever since Vent, I feel like every blonde guy looks exactly like him. So this would be Surfer Vent XP
Panel 6: Nope.
Panel 8: Well, it's obvious that he's from Dragon Ball. Let's see if he can do better than Jez. He seems likable enough.
Panel 9: Girl #1 cloned herself o_o Anyway, she could be interesting.
Panel 10: Splatoon! Already excited!
Panel 11: Looks like a Power Rangers monster. Like Mesogog.
Overall, I'm really looking forward to this!
@ChronoAlone: Panel 3 and Panel 9 have different hair lengths as well as a different body shape
@SWSU-Master: Eh, I suppose.
Alright SWSU, this preview has got me more hyped than I already was. This is my first live reading of a season so I hope it lives up to it's legacy.
Some thoughts on the Characters.
Panel 3: It feels like she'll have a lot of screentime. Whether that's a good thing or not I'll wait for the full Cast reveal
Panel 4: I love that the Minion invasion has spread to even SFC. Hopefully fills a Popper style role pre-merge, can't see him any further than that
Panel 5: Reminds me of Mac, who I liked even though he didn't do much. Seems like he'll get some great lines
Panel 6: Don't even know what this is supposed to be, he/she looks like it could be interesting
Panel 8: Like this guy, could see him in the late merge period easily. Nice, laid back guys usually do well in your seasons though, so you might mix it up and boot him early.
Panel 9: Her power intrigues me, but until I get a better idea of it I don't have much to say
Panel 10: Splatoon? See her making the Jury, could have a good story of overcoming her self-doubt
Panel 11: I really hope you pulled a Damon and made him really kind and gentle. Or make him over-the-top and cartoonish. Either way, this guy will be a highlight.
My only gripe is with the twist. It seems like you're separating the over-powered from the average, which seems like it may make challenges unbalanced. Seems like it will only be a pre-merge twist like the Deserted anyway, so it shouldn't be a huge issue.
@Thorne: I have ways of Balancing most of the challenges.
YES! I've been waiting to see this!
@SWSU-Master: And the biggest thing I'm eager to see is the Role-calls!
@Riskfan: Very Excitement
Great to see you back, SWSU!
Time to get hyped! Looking forward to a great season!
P = panel
P3 - This a he or a she? Hard to tell sometimes with sprites. Kinda reminds me of a Phoenix Wright type character? I can see myself rooting for them.
P4 - Make him bearable, please. Or first boot.
P5 - An... interesting character. He reminds me a bit of Mac from last season, but there's definitely more under there, I think.
P6 - Hey look, it's blue Prussia! Eh, never been a fan of this type of character, but maybe you can do something new with her? Or him?
P8 - Haven't seen DBZ, so I'm not too sure what to expect, but from the looks of things he's gonna be kind of a dude-bro.
P9 - She's not gonna stay very hidden on a tribe full of people with superpowers, but at the same time I don't expect her to make waves.
P10 - Aw, she's nice. I expect her squid thing to come in handy at some point, kinda like Popper's speed boost thing in All-Stars? Or she ends up being useless - could go either way.
P11 - Obviously he's going to immediately slip under the radar and slide to the end without any trouble at all /s
I could easily see panels 3 and 9 winning, and *maybe* 5 and 8 if there's more to their characters. P4 and 11 aren't going to win, and while possible I don't see 6 or 10 winning either.
@coolkyledude: Although you can't always predict winners on the first appearance can ya?
I look forward to seeing the Minion's antics. Just boot him before he outstays his welcome (I give him 'til merge), please.
@landis963: Don't underestimate the little guy
@SWSU-Master: I give him 'til merge to become insufferably annoying, I should say. I'm not sure if him becoming an object of fiery burning scorn and hatred earlier than merge would be an underestimation or not.
Yay, its back! I like Despicable me, but for some reason I just want that minion to die.
@Meowz: Aww thats mean XD
What a great early Christmas present! SFC15!!!
@qazox: HO HO HO!
I didn't expect a preview before 2015 is ending and yet here it is, so cool...
I guess SFC15 won't lack enough contestants who polarize as usual but their performances will depend on the people they hang out with and how soon Skill & Power Castaways are mixed in a tribe swap.
I think I'll root for our investigator and the inkling girl but there's still 12 people to be revealed so I'll better judge everyone in the cast release. However I'm already wondering if preview char Nr.8 is like a more intimidating Diego or THE evil villain we can look forward to?
I'll keep both eyes on this, see you and wishing you an early merry Christmas ;)
@SkySurfer: Panel #8 is a very interesting character. That's all I'll say
Holy crap, I'm glad I checked today! I can't wait for the next season! As for this cast, they look rather interesting.
Panel 3: I like her. Very positive outlook and detective skills come in handy.
Panel 4: KILL THIS CANCEROUS YELLOW TIC-TAC WITH FIRE.
Panel 5: I can see this douche being a physical threat who's taken out after merge since he has no strategic capacity.
Panel 6: Oooh, we've got one of those quirky manipulative types. I look forward to seeing what he does.
Panel 8: He's going home early. Too idealistic by a wide margin.
Panel 9: Her strategy is going to backfire badly. It never works out well in this webcomic when someone conceals their powers.
Panel 10: He's a kid, he's a squid!
Panel 11: I get the feeling he'll be an excellent team player with an attitude that positive!
Overall, this cast is looking just great and I can't wait until the season starts in earnest.
@sonofhades: I'll try and start it sooner than later... to make up for the Hiatus
@SWSU-Master: No rush! Christmas Break is starting soon, so we have plenty of time for tasty pages. :3
So glad to see this back! :)
Thoughts on cast:
1. I feel like it's not Ace Attorney...maybe Professor Layton. Could go either way, but I'm liking her so far.
2. This is weird, but I feel after Buddy last season, you wouldn't make him first boot...right? I want him to annoy the audience, and people, yet bumble his way deep.
3. I have no idea what to think. I legit don't.
4. I'm...not a fan. I feel if there is a first boot here, it's her. There's something off... I'm seeing a villainous story arc.
5. I hope he does better than Jez... There's so much that could happen to him. I'm excited.
6. I have a feeling she's a Power Ranger. I want this to be her so bad. I know you like Sentai too SWSU. I'm actually getting winner vibes.
7. I LOVE Splatoon. I wonder if she's Team Naughty or Team Nice... I don't see her doing well, but it'll be fun until then.
8. I'm going to make a bet. This might be completely off, but I think he's going to be surprisingly positive. He's TOO evil looking. I think he's a teddy bear at heart. That's right, I think the guy with a skull head and red aura is going to be OTTP.
Some of my predictions may seem weird, but I think some things are at least plausible.
@RiceAndBeans: You aren't alone in thinking that Mr. Demon might be a nice guy
IT'S FINALLY BACK! WHOO~
Seriously though, every time we have one of these hiatuses, I fear the odds of it not starting back up again.... anyway, let's get to looking at those new castaways!
Panel 3: She said the word "truth" 3 times...wherever she's from, I'm assuming it's an animated series. Anywho, looks like she'll be interesting.
Panel 4: OH GOSH THEY'VE INVADED HERE TOO!?!
Panel 5: Dumb surfer dude? Well, can't have fun without one of those~
Panel 6: Evil in the form of a "Hollywoo" agent? That works. Should be interesting to see her story and/or quick downfall.
Panel 8: Is that a DBZ character? That's a DBZ character isn't it? Anyway, I'm loving his attitude, I'm always a sucker for the goodie goods~
Panel 9: Acting mysterious but revealing you have secrets in the preview comic? Well, that's not lasting long. At least not for us finding out it doesn't.
Panel 10: Heh, I could tell just from the look that she was an inkling. That power should be fun. While I'm a fan of Nintendo, I never exactly hopped on the Splatoon hype train, but I'm really looking forward to this character~
Panel 11: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA I hope he's not gone within 10 days like the rest.
Interesting dynamic having Super beings against Normals. If you don't mind me asking, do you have any idea when the season will begin? I can't wait to see the rest of the cast~
@anime9001: I'll start it around Episode 7 or 8. (For Context I'm halfway through Episode 4)
its alive........IT'S ALIVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
P3: she seems to have a good head on her.
P4: minion.....oh god this can't end well.
P5: DUDE this guy is gonna be quite interesting
P6: Hmm for some reason i see her as a Villain.
P8: ooh this should be good.
P9: wonder what her power is? ah well should be fun ta watch her.
P10:...i am under whelmed could be interesting maybe.
P11: HOLY SNIT FLEE, FLEE FOR YOUR LIVES
SO far so good
@ChaoticCross: And theres still alot left unseen
Let the hype begin!
First girl: Looks kind of interesting. Not sure about her quite yet
Minion: OH GOD NO
Surfer:Teen beach movie?He's going to get annoying really fast
Cat(Dog?): I already love her. Please be main villain
Dragon Ball guy: HI LOVE CHILD OF MAC AND ALEKSAN HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS FINE MORNING
Black shirt girl: I have a hunch that her power isn't going to be as great as she is leading it up to be. Probably late pre-merge boot
Satan:I highly doubt that he is going to be a villain, and if he is, not THE villain. Still like him though.
@misterjakester: Keep in mind. The Black Shirt Girl has no idea its Superpowered vs Normals
YAY SFC is back!!!!!!!!
Also, I know this is off topic, but I want to know if I am in the minority, did you like Cambodia? Because I really did not like how it turned out.
@guesty: I thought it was a below average season. Like it was better than Redemption Island/Caramoan/Worlds Apart by quite a bit. But I don't know if it would crack the Top 20
Yeah I never thought I see a Minion in this webcomic. Is he going to have subtitles?
AND WE'RE BACK!
Woohoo! Survivor is back! The cast looks interesting already, though I'm not sure why the guy in panel 8 talks like a Jedi despite looking like a Dragon Ball character. It'll be interesting to see how a Minion survives due to the major speech impediment. Also interesting to see an Inkling in this, though I feel bad for it during water challenges. And finally, evil guy is evil. Here we go!
@Shyruni: SWSU and I decided to bullshit our way around the water issue. XD
Yes, I am the inkling owner.
yeah its back
Time for my first reviews *puts on glasses*
First Girl: interesting I expect her to be the hero type if not early boot than goes far in the game but will end up getting up in her own web of lies
Minion: WHY WHY WHYYYYYYYYYY
Surfer guy: yo bro I get where youre coming from to bad I dont see you playing this game and just floating the waves to the end
Cat or Dog thing: obvious villain is obvious even thought he might have his competition for top villain
Dragon Ball Character: Why hello super fan or likable character in the game how are you today?
Girl on bottom left corner: either the underdog or the person everyone underestimates (like spinfur) she will will go far or come short of merge for sure (like spinfur)
Green Hair Girl: aw loom how innocent she is she would make a perfect sheep for this game but I feel like she has a few swing votes in her so maybe she will get somewhat far in this game
Devil: This guy maybe wanting me to shake in my boots but these boots are just walmking past you seeing you get out with everyone celebrating sorry its just a game
This is how I interpret these people and im ready for the next regardless anything that happen
I'm exited to read my first season in real time! I really like this comic, but I got here after sfc 14.
Anywho I'm not gonna give my thoughts on characters until the cast release, but that last guy reminds me of a character from that Tom & Jerry racing movie. I like him.
Looking forward to this!
Is that just part of her accent or does "Hollywoo" mean that fox thing is from Bojack Horseman
