An update and a question

Hi, everyone!
(I know that not everyone reads the news posts, but I'm pretending otherwise)

Firstly, an update: this comic will now update on Sunday and Thursday at 10:07. I have build up enough of a buffer to feel comfortable with twice-a-week updates.

And the question is...what is your favorite color?

Okay, not really. I actually want to ask about reader preferences. There's going to be a scuffle (or, officially, a battle), and I want to know if you prefer the moves labeled or not.

For example, a panel Charsha shooting fire from her mouth and it obviously looking like Flamethrower.
..or that same panel with "Flamethrower" labeled.

There is not much difference on the production side. Just, unlabeled, you have to guess or figure out what move I'm depicting. Whereas when labeled, you know exactly what move the character is using.

Since there are some...innovative ways to achieve various moves, I don't want my readers to be in the dark (especially if they don't read my comments and stuff)

I think you can see why I want some opinions from the readers.
Tell me what you think! =)

I do like seeing the moves labeled. Just so long as it's clear that the character isn't shouting the move's name out.

Edit: Also why 10:07? Why not just 10? x3

avatar Blue, definitely blue.

......What do you mean, that's not the real question? ..... Oh. Right....

I enjoy both methods. Labels are nice because they show how different people interpret the huge variety of moves, but without labels allows the reader to fill it in for themselves. I suppose if I had to express a preference, then labels.
