If I expected to spend the entire rest of my life making UTC, I would have made four or five more chapters before “Class Warfare” all about each students’ experiments and building up more ancillary characters so that this story arc would have more weight to scenes like this. The only such character here is Tony, a friend of Jack’s who got one page of dialogue and then turned into a were-jackal. Who are these students, what makes them so inclined to obey Ken’s orders, and what are their experiments?
Unfortunately, those questions may remain unanswered forever…MAYBE somewhere down the road I will find a good chance to use one of them in a pinch to fill some role in a future story.
Update 11-22-2017: I slipped in a panel above the final 2 panels to better show how Katsuko is confusing the teens and stalling for time until she can get to her locker.
