I can't figure yet if he's good or bad. I hope he's going to be a New Friend, but he had more screen time in that short film compared to Cahe or Pejiba (they were only there as silhouettes, right?) which makes me think he has a different role in the story from a regular ally.

Cahe wasn't even in the short film (link for the uninitiated)- the silhouette was of King Zebugu.

The short film was written without much thought to what the rest of the "series" would be like. I needed another still frame for the OP, so I had the actor put on whatever costume parts were lying around, and I came up with a funny name for the credits.

When I wrote the comic's script, my only thought with Electric Zebra was "I gotta include this dude at some point". So, here he is. Is he good? Is he bad? Will he be a recurring character who shows up in a scene, plays a couple songs, and leaves? That's for me to know, and you to find out.

But while you're speculating, here is a page from earlier in the chapter, in which Pejiba may or may not be prophetic.

EDIT: Also, in case you're wondering- Pejiba's design was indeed partially based off of the silhouette I drew, and Cahe was based off the fact that I wanted a sword friend, but I didn't feel like it fit Mizuki as much.

Dang I shoulda known that wasn't Cahe, there wasn't an anime spike

The vibe I'm getting from Acoustic Horse is "problematic fave" idk what to do with that but it's definitely a vibe

I will say- from what I've written in advance, Zebra is a strong contender for my favorite character in the comic.

Though that neither confirms nor denies your gut feeling about him.

Great, that really clears things up and doesn't worry me

My guess is this dude's definitely gonna be trouble. But that's only based on that menacing yet colorful skull tattoo...and the overwhelming electric powers xP

Not everyone with a tattoo is a enemy!

...the only other three people with tattoos so far were, but still!
