This blurb was written when this comic page first went online. It might not accurately reflect the current state of the RACIANTAU project. Consider it a piece of history.

I literally hate the writing for the Battlemon Variety Hour so much.

Even the author is unsure of how intelligent Bunners is, and for that matter Battlemon in general are. In the Pokemon world Pokemon seem to be about as smart as your average children’s programming writer. I will say that the Battlemon Variety Hour is probably not just lights and sounds to her; she probably understands what’s going on.

The two Battlemon fighting in the middle of the bottom row are a “Floodwotter” and a “Lumbersnack.” Get it? Haa.

Who the hell schedules state-sanctioned dogfighting to start immediately after the Battlemon Variety Hour? Without even a commercial break between the two of them? Scriptwriters, that’s who. Also it isn’t dogfighting, check your Earth morals at the door, man.

the story: Battlemon

In a cheap but legally permissible knockoff world in the style of Pokemon or Monster Rancher we peek into the shared lives of a young woman (Racia) and her Battlemon partner (Bunners) as they navigate the expectations society has of them and they have of each other.

the comic: RACIANTAU

An ongoing study in comics, storytelling, and philosophy, RACIANTAU is a comics anthology structured in the form of an essay. The title of the project (pronounced /rɔsiɑntoʊ/) is a contraction of the names "Racia" and "Antau" — the two main characters. The kids try to make sense out of a senseless world of VIOLENCE, IMPERMANENCE, ISOLATION. Anxious about the FUTURE OF OUR SPECIES, they find themselves face to face with the VOID WHICH CONSUMES ALL THINGS. In each story, one or both of them inch closer towards self-realization.
