Sorry not sorry
Kiyosi in the top half there, of whom I keep wanting to call Kiyoshi, is actually CLY's character from winning the art contest like a year ago! I figure that with my original plan for her appearance in an approximately 70-page long segment having been completely thrown out the window with the one panel that brought in Dark Matter, I could include her here in this scene that I came up with after the fact.
She's actually meant to have a quieter voice, but I've tweaked a few things about her just to make things go a bit smoother. Having her be soft-spoken would affect the plan for her inclusion, so I decided to not use every detail CLY gave me (though made sure to include others for once).
Kiyosi, though, is the final user-generated character that will be appearing in KA. I realize that I still had cameos waiting, but here's three major problems with trying to include these:
1. I don't even apparently have an accurate record of who is still waiting, as I've seen people say they had an accepted cameo that I don't even remember ever sending anything in once. This would be unfair to pick and choose just from who past me decided to actually keep a record of.
2. Trying to force in characters in a segment where I previously was lacking motivation in creating would honestly have a fairly decent chance of killing my motivation again.
3. The final segment would be rather cluttered if I introduced even more new characters on top of Dark Matter and Kiyosi, and it would be less interesting to read.
So, yeah, I realize that's going to bum people out, especially those who were still waiting, but that's really the way it's gonna have to be. At least you'll be getting an actual ending to this comic at all, right?
Oh, and I killed Not-Keito (in the exact same way to boot) because I thought it'd be funny.
I'll talk a bit more about Zykan and HAND in the next few pages.

@Ultizeta: ITS NOT FUNNY WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT!
Kidding, though it actually makes sense to kill the magic duplicate Keito.
And I'm pretty sure puffballs are magic. Pretty dang sure.

Honestly, I would have understood completely if you had skipped Kiyosi's cameo to help the comic's ending.
Glad she did get the chance to show up though. And, um, sorry for having took so long to give you her info earlier.
In other news: yellow continues to be marked for death.

Ulti thinks killing people is funny confirmed.
Still, I figured Not-Keito would get retconned out of existence, because Keito's death would lose meaning if his exact clone was still hanging around.

WAIT A MINUTE. NOT KEITO WAS KILLED NEXT TO A YELLOW SLOPE... HE'S THE THIRD YELLOW KIRBY TO DIE IN THE COMIC. KEEBY, KEITO, AND NOT-KEITO ALL SHARE A SPECIFIC NUMBER IN COMMON TO A RACIST GROUP THAT HAS THREE REPEATING LETTERS IN ITS NAME... OF COURSE!
You're predicting some sort of racism scandal at E3 (or EEE, clever Ulti!) this year! To be fair, it wouldn't surprise me either.
Also, when I first glanced at this comic I thought that the second-to-last panel was a flashback at first.
