One of the toughest pages to do, which one of my closer friends was praising like no other. Whooo.
I now have tears in my eyes. this was the most beautiful panel EVER!!! Both anime and manga included do not hold a candle to this.

Mike is a ninja. That’s the only logical explanation.
Kan March 15, 2010, 11:16 PM EST.
It’s been made clear that there’s a river below, and Mike DID promise never to let another drop of water touch her again so… yes, of course he has to (even if only temporary) be a ninja to keep his promise.

I think this scene could have a Balrog to top things off. Wait, there IS something in the bushes in a few pages! Does that count?

Hannibal May 28, 2010, 7:43 PM EST.
Taeshi, your friend Neil was right to praise this page. It features so many epic things that I can’t do justice to all of them.
Or, in common internet-ese: *e-hem* MOST. EPIC. PAGE. YET.

Probably, but I forgive Taeshi for it, so should you.
Zeke Woods June 8, 2010, 12:54 AM EST.
This was the awsmoest page by far out of all of the pages because it shows mike saveing lucy at the risk of his own life and for that I
Jango D'Soul June 9, 2010, 2:30 PM EST.
This is a death of Mike we know.
corvusfrugilegus July 14, 2010, 8:17 PM EST.
Physically impossible? No, but he’d have to push with a great amount of force, thus sending him downwards much, much faster. Also, GREAT FREAKING JOB! And Mike is now very high up there for me. Awesome job man.

Amazing, really beautiful work on this page.

I’m sure Lucy will punch Mike later for kicking her in the stomach.
@Jelloman He kinda broke that promise when Lucy dived to save Yashy.

dude i can read this chap over and over again and still won’t get tired of it. this is by far the best page!!

Moofin October 30, 2010, 12:18 AM EST.
Every time I see this page I just have to comment that this is ****ing impossible. Even the power of love cannot break the laws of physics like that.
Hannibal November 12, 2010, 2:19 AM EST.
Nicely and interestingly done page, shading them all black was a nice touch.
AHH!! SPLIT INFINITIVE!!! THE PAIN, THE HORROR!!!

This… is one of the most epic pages EVER.

mike ain’t no jerk, all this without a sammich, ****ing *** man
lolwut November 23, 2010, 6:41 AM EST.
I really don’t understand. Did he… fall and then grab her, spin upright, and hurl her upwards? This is troll physics.
herzeleid December 6, 2010, 3:41 AM EST.
Best page of the whole damn comic.
The Other Mike (Mikaro) December 12, 2010, 8:30 AM EST.
tehcnically that is possible, if he pushed himself towards her to catch her (which he did), otherwise that is humanly impossible
sincerly, the wii anonymous
anonymous December 17, 2010, 6:27 AM EST.
Troll physics? He pushed off from the rock to get her. He’s got good legs. It’s a plot point.
Hoheh December 20, 2010, 6:38 AM EST.
PHYSICS DON’T APPLY TO THE MIKE!

Hoheh January 10, 2011, 5:14 AM EST.
Because physics obviously works that way.
Baeleox January 16, 2011, 12:47 AM EST.
What he did was push of the ledge catch her flipped backwards about 90 degrees and kicked off the momentum not only sent Lucy flying back up but assured Mike would hit the water faster and with more force. It’s possible I assure you.
ForgottenEcho January 21, 2011, 6:31 AM EST.
Am I the only one wondering what the heck is Sue doing in that panel?
... January 30, 2011, 8:10 AM EST.
Taeshi, if you made the part where mickael got Lucy to throw or kick her back up, you could’ve made mike kiss her first then kick her up.
Nightrobber February 3, 2011, 7:24 AM EST.
OMG!!! MIKE AND LUCY!!! OMGGGG!!! *close to crying* FFUUU!!!!! DD8
Random Stalker Ninja Girl February 9, 2011, 12:17 AM EST.
good thinking - lucy fainted because water, so he knows he’s gonna survive the fall
DFA February 9, 2011, 8:19 PM EST.
BEST. PAGE. EVER.

Katyroo February 18, 2011, 5:09 AM EST.
Mike could do that because:
A: He comes from a long line of Korean ninjas, and
B: He then fell into a plot hole.
GoodBurger February 19, 2011, 2:09 AM EST.
Every now and then I come back to this particular page for nostalgia’s sake. It’s just so elegant and emotional that you can’t help but love it. This definitely shows Mike’s noble side since he is willing to sacrifice himself for Lucy.
LostInPhilly89 February 25, 2011, 5:04 AM EST.
and I just realized there was water all along, I just never saw that it was water, thought just some generic landscape or something (dunno)
DFA February 27, 2011, 8:49 PM EST.
This is probably my favourite page so far.
Hang on… they twist the wrong way after they collide…
Michael should’ve went into a frontflip motion, not a backflip. Physics fail!
But yeah, this page is still the best.
Teguki March 17, 2011, 5:11 PM EST.
Physically impossible, but SHUT UP IT WORKS, DAMNIT.
Lol-Nade March 18, 2011, 4:17 AM EST.
Hmmmm… Thiz thiz remindz me of a truly painful ztory which involved me, a cliff, a ztupid gofer hole, and a home made ztretcher cuz my family iz cheap/poor
Miracle March 21, 2011, 3:07 AM EST.
WTF??? that doesn’t make a bit of sense!!! maybe im looking at it wrong…
if im correct, they are both moving downwards. falling. yet he somehow denies gravity and launchs her back up? even though they are both moving in a downwards motion?
what would really happen is mike slows lucy’s decent and launches himself further downwards towards the giant river.
keep in mind that i may be just looking at it wrong, as previously mentioned.
You probably don’t even read these comments anyway, focusing on the comments of your newer comics. still, this has been bugging me ever since i read this comic.
i just never commented on it. if I had bothered to scroll down and discover that you can leave comments (which i only found out about around the start of ‘Pillow Talk’) i would have brought up this subject as soon as i read the comic.

At that height, the surface tension of the water would shatter your bones just as well as a concrete wall…YOUR MAISHUL LEARNED NON-CANON!

Actually its possible after reading all your comics I showed this page to my chemistry and physics teacher and she says its possible.
ARandomByStander April 29, 2011, 5:34 PM EST.
I would never be able to think as fast as Mike did here. There’s just no way.

(She does randomly appear prominently though, I mean just look at this page:

MIKE!!! Wh-what’s the rest of the gang gonna do if you die? You saved Lucy… at least…
Hashi May 18, 2012, 7:54 PM EST.
Too bad Mike didn’t die after this… Would have made future events in the comic much better for most of the cast.
Spiritwolf15 June 22, 2012, 7:49 PM EST.
@Spiritwolf15 don’t spoil this to the new readers!
Chileanguy July 1, 2012, 1:37 AM EST.
Wow, now I realise… when Mike falls it’s not that bad he’s a cat and a good swimmer, but when Lucy falls.. O.O She passed out and can’t swim…….
Killermampf July 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EST.
@Spiritwolf15 I hope this cover’s your commont so that It doesn’t have a spoiler right below the page.
The Real Lee July 23, 2012, 8:11 PM EST.
@TheRealLee It’s not even a spoiler. This chapter is a flashback, and we see that Mike is perfectly alive at the beginning of the chapter.

SUE! TAKE A PICTURE!
Lloyd August 3, 2012, 4:58 AM EST.
And everyone still hates him? Geez, I’ve read about knights in shining armor, and here HE comes along and everyone HATES!?!? WHAT IS THIS!?!!? Why does everyone seem to team up to destroy all faith in humanity!?
She TERRORIZES HIM! I mean, everyone deserves a second chance and all, but she hates him PERSONALLY every day! She NEEDS him! This page right here is cold hard PROOF that she does! No one would have saved her other than Mike! I mean, Paulo loves her and all, but wouldn’t he just think he would have lost her when she let go? He says in one of the comics that he doesn’t want to die for her!
And STILL you all just keep hating… it’s disgusting to see people like me hating such a brilliant hero… disgusting… like a parasite… like cancer…
And has she done anything for him!? Think about it, has she ACTUALLY ever saved his life? During the gang scene, she’s only defending herself and talking about how big she is and how much see must care about everyone… but they weren’t even going to TOUCH them if they hadn’t intervened! They were only trying to get Lucy, who could have saved herself alone. And when Mike fell into the water, PAULO SAVED THEM! Lucy only failed!
Look, I’m not saying Lucy is some person who is to be hated and all, but seriously, can’t you people see that she’s been bad to Mike all his life, and hasn’t even said sorry? And that Mike has no reason to be hated? Just think about that.

Mike did this because he loves Lucy. This was no babysitting. This was a act of love, even if though he doesn’t realize it himself

Omg… I was just looking at this page for the 100 time while listening to ”evertytime we touch” by cascada and I STILL cried… So pretty
I will forever support Mike X Lucy, I don’t care what Mike did in the future….

I know that it’s not Lucy’s fault, and ‘Curiosity killed the cat’ and all, but sometimes I just wish she would think rather than just react the way she does sometimes..
