I can't help but think that Arashiko still had something harsh up her sleeve before Loure martyr'd him/herself. That said, I think this is the first time I've ever seen Arashiko as anything other than unflappable. That in and of itself was kind of creepy. And then there's the unholy "404: eyes not found" thing that Loure's got going on...

Seeing as it's a hacked item and I doubt the game's designers ever intended for that particular event to play out, I'm betting that the whole visual effect is thanks to whatever sadistic soul had that sword made up.

Apart from the "it just works" nature of the comic, seeing as it's hacked anyhow, it could just bust their game client to never work again. If they did it really subtly, it might never occur to the victims to reinstall the client. (Or for that matter, they could try busting into the OS and doing something unholy there. Remember, it's fiction: It Just Works.)
