I was trying to remember where I found that machine's sprites but I simply forgot...
Anyway, yeah, another machine, another chapter with one. But don't worry, this one will be completely different from the other two, and I really mean it.

Something tells me this machine is going to malfunction again.

@Gigi19972010: that looks like cielĀ“s machine from Megaman Zero...maybe from there?

I wonder what it does...

I bet it does something involving enhancement.

Also this is really nit-picky, but instead of "sun beams as energy", maybe just "Solar Energy?"

anyway you better not skip to other characters the next page

Maybe they turn into a butterfly and spy on Panee and sees Panee with Marx and helps Panee ko Marx.

@Hi:): No, Gigi said in her SUPER-DUPER long post that it would get too predictable to have three malfunctioning machine storylines. Besides, Daisy will have learned from her mistakes and improved on them. Plus, Deedoo's there as well to correct anything she missed. The characters might be wary, but YOU shouldn't be.

@Omega Kirby: His words exactly:
So, I want to make things go back to be as they must be. My only with my actual powers, Dedede is the king not me, and... The other clones with their normal abilities.

@Ninnco: Actually, Omega Kirby has a point. Panee's wish had absolutely nothing to do with the ability-swap, that was the Milkshake machine's fault. Nova himself said he wouldn't grant another wish, ("If you're here to ask another [wish], I must refuse") only undo what Panee wished for in the first place. Since Panee didn't wish for the XXIs to swap abilities, technically Nova shouldn't have given the XXIs their original abilities, as it contradicts what he said earlier.

@Ultimate Yoshi: but considering he was the "king", he can be able to force N.O.V.A to switch the XXI's abilities again.

@Ninnco: The problem with that is that Panee clearly didn't order Nova to switch the abilities. When Panee made any order, the text had a drop shadow effect. While Panee probably COULD order Nova to switch the abilities, especially considering Panee ordered Nova to appear in the first place, Panee DIDN'T, which is why it's sort of a plot hole.

@Omega Kirby & @Ultimate Yoshi:

Both of you guys misinterpreted stuff.
"PANEE COULD ONLY UNDO HIS WISH, NOT GET ANOTHER WISH!!!!!" Huh, based on what? When NOVA appears it even starts saying "READY. ->" because it was going to grant a wish (since it was summoned), until it realized that it was Panee. Panee used the powers that NOVA gave him to call it without the Dream Springs' power, so NOVA thought it was to grant another wish. "What a power abuse!", thought NOVA, so it refused to grant another wish to Panee. Yes, NOVA can simply do that, why not? But then you ask "OH MY SO WHY DID NOVA END UP GRANTING A WISH LATER?!?!?!!11!". Two things: first, Panee undid his original wish, so he sort of replaced the one of ruling as king by the one of making things go to back to normal. NOVA refused because it thought that Panee was going to be selfish and simply wish another wish, which didn't happen, so NOVA, guess what, changed its mind! And the second thing is that NOVA also had another reason to grant that wish: it was the one that the kirbies were going to wish! So, let's review, Panee had made a wish, it was granted, then he wanted to undo it and without noticing sort of replace it with another, the one which would be wished if Panee didn't appear. Now imagine if NOVA hadn't granted the wish, simply because it had refused to do it once. It would look really weird, right?

@Gigi19972010: Reading your explanation, I now understand what YOU were thinking when you wrote that part. The problem is, though, that none of what you said was really put into the comic itself. In the comic itself, it doesn't show Nova thinking about power abuse, or changing his mind about not granting the new wish (at least out loud). Now that you've explained it in detail it's not a problem, but considering how much I re-read that single comic where Panee wishes to make sure of what I was saying was accurate in my previous two comments, it shows to me that this bit of the story wasn't very clearly shown. It's not that big of a deal considering how minor a part of the story it is (at least the fact about Nova allowing a second wish, not about what the wish is that he grants), but at the very least, I hope that in the future this whole debacle helps you in the future so that you don't NEED to come in with an author comment and explain stuff.

@Ultimate Yoshi:

If any writer becomes able to write a story that all readers understand everything the author wanted them to understand, I'll congratulate said writer. Really, it's impossible to make a story where every single aspect is clear, in a single read and without deep text interpretation. Also, if you didn't realize what I said by rereading, that's just you? Other people might have understood it. You know, nothing I explained was something that you couldn't conclude by yourself. Maybe not easy to, but not impossible, and only if it were impossible that there'd be a problem.

@Jarkes: That's a bit of a different situation, though I said to Gigi during our talks about that situation that it was really my fault that she didn't get his character right. Am I being hypocritcal here? I guess technically, but I'm not happy with how the same kind of thing has happened with my own comic, and I'm going to work on not having it happen in the future. By pointing this kind of thing out to Gigi, it helps her do the same.

@Ultimate Yoshi:

By what you said to Jarkes, I assume that you ignored my last reply? Because there I said that such thing was mandatory in any story and blahblahblah. You said I needed to pay more attention about making things clear, and I do since I ever started making this comic, and I said that no matter what I can't make everything 100% clear. Also, you contradicted yourself, saying first that both things weren't the same and then saying that you experienced the same thing in your comic, meaning that you think that both things are the same...
So, even if your intention was to help me at some point, I've already told you that you didn't help me, so telling Jarkes that you helped me actually makes no sense.

@Gigi19972010: The Kaxo characterization thing IS a different kind of situation than this one. When I said "the same kind of thing", I was referring more to plot holes and unclear ideas that have occured in Kirby Adventure. For example, if Shat'l is a psychic, why wouldn't he warn Kirby about, say, Talzo's gang showing up in Jetting Across The Ice? In fact, nearly all of my plot holes come from the fact that Shat'l is a psychic and can see the future. So, yeah, that wasn't a contradiction, though I can see why you thought it was.
As for the whole making things clear part, I suppose I've never really realized how tricky that can be to do for all audiences, despite making a comic myself. I can see what you're getting at at an inability to make everything 100% clear, and considering how only two people (myself included) have had this specific clarification problem so far, I'd say that you've so far been doing a good job with letting everybody know what's been going on.
I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure what I'm even trying to say at this point.

Also, I didn't ignore your last reply, I actually just missed it entirely. I got a message in my inbox saying I got a reply from Jarkes on this page, so I scrolled down to Jarkes' comment to read it, unintentionally missing your comment above it.

@Ultimate Yoshi:

Ok, ok, ok.
Yeah, don't know anymore what we are really talking about as well, probably because it's time to put an end to this.

Oh no, Daisy, not again...
Then again Dedoo helped this time so there is some hope it won't mess up.
