This was a major oversight on my part in Friday's comic. I was so intent on driving home the point that EGS aberrations are bad guys who should feel bad but can't because they chose to become monsters lacking in empathy that I left out the reason Susan was targeted and the most likely reason why the immortals saw fit to start Susan on the path of an aberration slayer.
Of course, depending on what the immortals knew of Nanase, that was probably one of two primary reasons.
The costumes and "HOLD IT" in today's comic are in reference / homage to the Ace Attorney series. I would have dressed Nanase as the primary protagonist, Phoenix Wright, but Wright basically just wears a suit with only a tiny attorney badges to distinguish that it's him. As such, Nanase is dressed as Miles Edgeworth, who also basically just wears a suit but also has frilly neckwear. It's possible I've referenced him before.
And besides, Edgeworth wears red. That just suits Nanase better. Phoenix wears blue, which would be more appropriate for Ellen, and... And I think I know what Ellen and Nanase will be dressed as for Halloween this year.
Amanda is dressed similarly to Ema Skye as she appeared in Appolo Justice, and Lisa is dressed like detective Dick Gumshoe. For those of you not familiar with the series, yes, you read that correctly. There is actually a detective named "Dick Gumshoe" in those games. That is just one reason out of many why they are awesome.
