I seem to have a habit in this chapter where I make the last panel a huge pile of nothing. :( Even if this chapter is mainly dialogue, I should at least make an effort to make the setting believable! On this page, you don’t know where they are (right outside Lucy’s house).. at the time of shading I assumed I established the setting in previous pages, but pages should really stand on their own, man.
Emh… I kinda liked the ‘void’ at the ends… I was actually reading a bit deeper on it, knowing I might be wrong <.

Wah! The purple in that last panel wobbles when I scroll the screen down! X_x Seriously trippy.
P.S. You’re much too hard on yourself sometimes, you know? Own worst critic and all that.

I think that the voids at the end make sh*t seem deep or something.

I tend to agree with the comments here re: the last panel’s being filled with void-ness. Someone else could probably say this better, but having a large panel dedicated to one line gives that line more emphasis (in this case, rightly so!). A smaller last panel would detract from the line’s impact.
EDIT: I just noticed that the layered shading of the last panel gets darker in the direction opposite the way Lucy is looking. Either that’s a sunset (in which case, nice job!) or it’s symbolism.
Long comment is long, sorry!

At first I was gonna compare Zach and Paulo’s bluntness, but after that last panel, all I can say is Paulo is probably wrong about Mike’s feelings for Lucy, and his words are likely to come back to bite him later.

I like the last panels, Because they are plainer they let the reader take all the emotions in without the being visually overwhelmed. The last panels are like rest points so we can all let things sink in.

Aah, Paulo. You and your bones ^^ May you never change

erichan December 31, 2010, 8:27 PM EST.

lucy: I’ll say sorry if you kill someone
Mike: 0.0 *pulls knife out of nowhere and stabs man passing by* now?

I actually went back to notice those voids and went lol.

I just realised how tall Paulo is now

Panel 2: It’s all screwed up. Is his torso as big as a tree, or something? Jesus…
Other than that, this is bliss. Pure bliss. Nothing but old-fashioned interaction from my two favorite characters.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 21, 2011, 4:03 AM EST.
Really Lucy? You cant friggin’ say you’re sorry? No wonder Mike hates you.
Ven June 16, 2011, 5:54 AM EST.
I love how in this episode the crew seems to take Lucy as any other character. Feels like everyone is stressed.
Maybe has to do with being close to McCain too long C:

And now he’s back on track.
That’s a damned good question, Paulo.
I am dying to hear her answer.
Fruvous September 4, 2011, 4:04 PM EST.
Paulo: “you’re such a drama queen.”
Lucy: “you’re not supposed to say that!”
Ahhh, Paulo. You’re strange honesty & courage will never cease to amaze.
Camolotthe23 September 12, 2011, 3:25 AM EST.
Ah, now seeing this page follow on I can see Paulo’s blunt wisdom- very in character! Still, it didn’t seem to make sense for him to get angry at Mike. Glad he’s being level with Lucy though- everyone treats her with way more patience and respect than she’s ever earned from them, it’s ncie for her to start seeing that.
Roxor October 28, 2011, 5:28 PM EST.
Woah, he is tall and woah, she is short……Or at least in comparison
FairyTalegurl April 5, 2012, 10:35 AM EST.
He’s so condescending in that last panel
Shiva April 6, 2012, 2:32 AM EST.
Holy crap, Paulo became nice, tactful and understanding all at once.
Kuro May 11, 2012, 11:50 AM EST.
While re-reading this chapter… It happened… After all this years of being a MikexLucy fan Paulo got on my soft side and I’m screaming “OMGPaulo you are so cute!!!” When I should be asleep! Just now… I have became officially a PauloxLucy fan although I am starting to think all pairings involving Lucy are doomed to fail :’(
