Bitter? Trying to make up excuses? Just plain right? You tell me.
He’s afraid. He’s very afraid. He doesn’t want to get hurt, and he knows how much hurt lies down that particular path. But most of all, he doesn’t want to see anyone else become a casualty.
You know what I mean!~
Whether its the right decision… well, we’ll just have to see for ourselves, won’t we?

At this point, we finally get a hint of why Mike never seriously considered Lucy in a romantic way (except for a brief, awesome moment - pardon the reflexive shipping).

When someone fulfills another’s need; they gain a special place in that person’s heart. Silly Mikey; nobody could’ve replaced you n’ she would’ve morned for years-or her whole life even, albeit subtly so to “keep to her own needs while blocking weaknesses” or something. :p It’s also within nature to want to protect something; as well as to seek protection, though even as one seeks protection from the loss of another-they would likely be lying to themselves on some level if they did not admit how much the person lost meant. X,x

Gaka August 11, 2010, 5:59 AM EST.
It baffles me how people call him an *******.
The NERVE of him realizing that Lucy is an emotionally crippled sponge, and being irritated that he has to put up with her extreme tsundere clinginess.
Cadlington August 13, 2010, 5:15 AM EST.
A bit cold but still totally understandable.
Manwithnoname August 24, 2010, 12:24 AM EST.
Mike’s selflessness is beyond everything I’ve ever seen.
Mike, if you were real, I’d worship you.
Lyucs October 23, 2010, 7:49 PM EST.
Mike, if you were real and i saw you, i would get my chinese sword and cut you down until you were nothing more! thats how much i hate you!
LPfan4ever October 24, 2010, 5:22 AM EST.
If we think with calm we can see that Mike has big part of the fault about Lucy’s dependence to him, why didn’t he try to make Lucy to play with other children? in this way the children could accepted here tim ago like she is, and of course when he was with Sandy he totally abbandoned Lucy, it could be totally different if he were accepted to play with Lucy and Sandy together and in this way the 3 children had the possibility to be great best friends together…
Dey-Chan November 6, 2010, 6:31 PM EST.
y’know, if Zach was only a badass, he could pull off the whole “Golden Eye gun barrel” thing they do in the beginning of the Bond movies in the last panel. :3
…just saying, it’s a thought.
Art Wolf November 7, 2010, 9:15 PM EST.
Michael’s upset because he failed Lucy, he caused her some much pain when she thought he died, and he did it for the second time now. That’s what I think.

Neverrmore January 8, 2011, 7:18 PM EST.
I think hes right honestly. Shes just clinging to him because shes too afraid to trust anyone else. I really don’t think shes over Paulo but shes got no choice since hes being so playboyish. He needs to just drop her like a bad habit seriously its not helping her at all. She can never mature, or branch out, or do ANYTHING clutching to him like an infant. He obviously is still totally inlove with Sandy and Lucy only “loves” him because hes the only one there that isnt trying to rape her and she can cling to. I just wish something would make her mature so she could stand on her own and be more likeable
Sam February 1, 2011, 3:45 AM EST.
Bitter, making excuses, or right?

I suspect bipolarity and codependency as far as Lucy goes; nonetheless, Mike is turning into a jerk here, and a rather high-and-mighty one at that.
X-Saber April 6, 2011, 11:35 PM EST.
I think Mike is right shes just scared to trust others
H-Mi April 21, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Totally. You hit the nail on its head. The dependency Lucy has on Mike is completely unhealthy and not fair. She’s scared of the entire world. As soon as Mike drops her, she’ll grow up.
God, I DO NOT want the two of them ending up together. Please, don’t let that happen.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 20, 2011, 10:21 PM EST.
I would say Mike is a bit of all three. He’s bitter because he feels used, he’s making excuses because he doesn’t want to accept the fact that she actually loves him which would interfere with a certain long distance relationship, and he is right in the fact that Lucy is using him as a crutch to avoid facing her fears.
Thehumblecommenter May 23, 2011, 8:40 PM EST.
So thats what she ment by replacement ,wow

no, mike is right, lucy is just some bimbo who clings to the nearest guy.

i feel like mike was quite an ******* saying that, but it seems a lot like he’s right…
Ryoushi-kun August 1, 2011, 5:21 PM EST.
I think I like this Mike. I like him because I see myself in him. That truly is a sign of good character development :Y
David August 24, 2011, 8:51 AM EST.
He’s right, and yet he’s also wrong. Everything he says is true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
But hey, being the one and only friend of someone who constantly abuses you verbally and physically and who is a total bee witch to everyone else probably does weird things to a guy.
Fruvous September 4, 2011, 6:49 AM EST.
Convincing Zach or yourself here, Mikie?
Hoheh September 15, 2011, 12:57 AM EST.
You keep telling yourself that, Mike.

you just doont like him because yer an emo * noodle neck * so i thinks SHE ACTUALLY CARED!!!!!! this should be you right now crying saying: ” He could’ve died.” SO WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE THINKING THAT?!?!?

Here we see Mike’s vast misconception of his and Lucy’s relationship.
KiwiKoala June 17, 2012, 11:41 PM EST.
i think that Mike was thinking about it, but the lack of gratitude from lucy after this incident confirmed his suspects. He just feels used like a toy.

You know it wasn’t even like that.
KittyKattRawr November 27, 2012, 11:29 PM EST.
Dafuq did I just read?
Anywho, I think Lucy does love Mike, truly. However, the fact that Mike is one of the only “nice guys” in the series that tolerates her does put me on the fence about whether she’s patient enough to make it last despite conflict, or whether or not she’ll get over it very soon and jump to, oh, I dunno, Paulo. I personally don’t like PauloXLucy, I much prefer LucyXMike (I don’t even know if Taechi bases her relationships on how well they’re taken ;;) But either way, fingers crossed for PauloXTess and looking foward to see what happens to the two in the future (I’m all caught up. Just revisiting the…. older times. Not spoiling anything :3)

@Harrison012 , you just stole the words out of my mouth. I was about to comment the exact same thing.
4thStar April 26, 2013, 10:18 PM EST.
WTF, MIKE?? DON’T YOU REMEMBER HER GETTING BEAT UP AND ALMOST RAPED FOR YOU?!?!
Sonja June 30, 2013, 2:52 PM EST.
I think Mike is lying. I think he just doesn’t have the guts to admit his feelings toward Lucy. Lucy has actually risked her life for Mike several times. Mike did the same for Lucy. He say’s that he’s just babysitting her. I don’t believe him. If he was just doing that then he wouldn’t jump after her and sacrificing himself for her . Mike and Lucy have constantly been too afraid to tell the truth. Lucy has already gotten rejected by Mike once when they were much younger. Mike has also gotten rejected by Lucy (and that just 1 year ago) and that recently and Mike probably just doesn’t want to get rejected by Lucy again for fear of getting hurt again.
Sorry if I’m spoiling anything for new readers
Jonas97face October 27, 2013, 5:43 PM EST.
Oh mike, that is so wrong on so many levels…….
Tails November 24, 2013, 11:18 AM EST.
I am finally able to understand Mike’s anger.
Think about it. Mike risked his life to save Lucy. He jumped off a freaken cliff into a river because he knew she wouldn’t make it because of her phobia.
And he thought, correctly, that she loved him. But then he is found. And he also finds out that while he was gone, Lucy collapsed onto Paulo. What he doesn’t know is that she did this because she was crumbling inside; she needed support or she would’ve been even worse than she was (remember her demented laugh?). Mike thought she did this because she had moved on from him, just like that.
And so he is angry. Because in his mind, after all he has done to protect Lucy, she has just discarded him like garbage.
Do you really know your role, Mike? Or are you just blinded by your own ignorance?
Sambo January 5, 2014, 6:17 PM EST.
there’s a difference between love and obsession, she literally cant cope without him and wouldn’t of even gone on the trip, and he still tries to keep her safe (like the bridge “game”). maybe not being able to cling to anyone but still.
ampwire February 17, 2014, 11:59 PM EST.
Like so many people said, “Can you blame him?” I honestly don’t believe you guys support Lucy because she “loves Mike”. I believe you like her because of her looks. Mike really has been her protective blanket lately huh? And yet she s**** all over it. Have you been taking account of all the things she’s done? Think about it. This accounts for the later pages as well.
Flamessnake April 3, 2014, 12:12 AM EST.
This part of their relationship always gets me angry. Why does Mike suddenly get so angry at Lucy? I mean in the series as a whole not in just this part in the chapter. He obviously loved her a lot and got jealous at any other boy coming on to her. Now he puts out off as he was just her protector and even worse that he was just being used as a teddy bear/punching bag. But after Sandy was introduced, then he seems to only be focused on her since she’s so perfect or whatever. Doesn’t he care about Lucy or did he always felt that she clung onto him until he got sick of it. There seemed not to be any breaking point that clearly showed that if that be the case. I mean it isn’t like when Paulo wouldn’t want guys to get around Daisy when he just wanted to be protective over her. Maybe he kinda thought of Lucy like Sandy then felt guilty if he stated thinking too affectionately for her. Maybe but doesn’t fully explain his behavior changing towards her so quickly though, or if anything his eagerness to drop to show up Lucy on how ‘mistreated’ he was by her. If that be it then I feel like Mike should explain himself more instead of being so bitter because its not like he didn’t have feelings for her in the first place.
