Hey your re-draw looks really beautiful--and absolutely looks like it would take a year and a half to do, that is a ton of work with full color, effects, lighting, resizing everything, adding a bunch of dialogue, redrawing and repainting basically everything--congrats!
I remember reading it back in the day, before the repaint, and the change I'm happiest about is you've added a lot more breathing room when it comes to the plot. It still has a lot thrown at you all at once, since that's the genre we're in, and the story is so simple it doesn't need a lot of explanation. They're just hunting macguffins right now...if there's more depth to the lore, I assume you're gonna drop that in later when there's more time. But before the re-draw, the plot was so quick that you wouldn't always catch why certain things had happened in the panels before (especially in regards to action) this is much more naturally paced now.
That and now we have a lot more interaction between the characters--so we can grow more of a connection with them. I'm really thankful for that, especially the hints that they have been doing adventures before this occurred. When I first read the story, I didn't really catch that they were such close friends. They're a lot closer buddies now, and have a little bit of a history, and that is a welcome change.
In the first iteration of this story they kinda just...waltzed into a dojo and it was very convenient. While this is still very much a "We don't really need a reason, lets just have some fun" storyline, at least they questioned it a little more. They could probably question it...more, because they immediately accept that this magic stuff is happening. But, I'm glad to see that in the rewrite you put in hints that they are a already familiar with the lore of the goddesses and that they are used to living in a universe where magic is already a thing. It makes their quest make a lot more sense.
I think the shiny effects and the polish is really nice--there are some places where there was so much going on that my eyes didn't know what to focus on--it's a lot of sharp edges with not a whole lot of round and organic shapes to balance it out so just be mindful that it's easy to lose the shapes. That is the style, and I do like sharp styles. ((One of my favorite artists is Tan Zhi Hui, who also goes by the pseudo name of kudaman (I'll just put a link here because you'll probably like it https://www.artstation.com/kudaman) and he's a sharp artist as well. Sharp art is so great.))
The big thing about having such an intense style is that because it's not just for one illustration, and for many successive illustrations you are reading for quite a while, it can be exhausting for the eye, since it is very energetic and colorful and quite punchy if you don't mind my pun. So, I was very thankful for pages that balanced that out with blank space. It directed flow back to areas of interest, and it gave my eye somewhere to rest. Blank space is your friend, especially if you have a lot of energy.
Another thing is that sometimes I would lose the silhouette, for the reasons I mentioned before and also just because I hadn't gotten used to it yet. It's different from a normal human silhouette, so when there's a lot of action or a lot of lines on a page it would be a hunt of "where's my human" so just paying attention to color contrast I think will help prevent that (and you definitely got way better at keeping this from happening later in the comic and also in the parts you've recently redrawn--I read all that you have up and the art improved so much I don't want to dog on that because...it improved. You figured it out and are getting better all the time.)
And finally, again, I'm so happy to see more character interaction, and I would love to see more of it. Especially stuff that can give them more depth. Right now they're still kinda basic, it is only Ch 3, but there's not a whole lot of ways I can relate to them. They don't really have any flaws or distinctive quirks, with the exception of Tyler, who's kind of a dumbass. It's not that I don't like them, but if I was asked to describe them I wouldn't really know what to say other than the powers that they use.
Overall though--you should be very proud of this, it's a huuuuuge upgrade!
