Ah poor Pablo I wonder what jazz will think when she finds out I think she will understand and let him decide who he want I think its just a faze
In pan 5 he looks like ttails from sonic just saying
also note the pictures on his wall I think there on yhe same wall but they change
dustin May 21, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Note the poster behind him in the last frame. Also, his dad seems like just about the most depressing person ever.
Nikita May 21, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Oh shut…take cover!!! Drama bombs are dropping!!!
Slenderman May 21, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Didn’t Paulo say that his dad looks like a lion in on chapter?
ScrabMaster May 21, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
I think he an Jasmine are gonna break up .3.
Glitch May 21, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Jazz know’s somethins up. I have a feeling she’s gonna break it off for his own good.
Keo May 21, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Aw, look at that reaction. He was expecting Lucy. Poor Paulo /and/ poor Jasmine.

She’s breaking up with him.
Danny May 21, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
wow that is one conflicted child… at least hes weighing the decisions… u can tell hes trying to find a way out of this situation where he can still make everyone happy or at least not ******. BTW I think hes about 2 have that “heart 2 heart” u guys wanted. i hope he makes the right decision.
nexus doubt May 21, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
wow…he sounds sooooo happy to hear her right now….
Luna May 21, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
Personally, I hope Jazz breaks up with Paulo or have a mutual breakup. I couldn’t bear seeing her cry. She’s easily one of my favorite characters. I wish I knew more awesome people like her. Even if they break up, they’re definitely going to stay good friends. But in this comic, expect the unexpected. Situations can flip in the blink of an eye (or in a few pages). It’s that sort of unpredictability that keeps me hanging on to the comic (that and the massive amount of cliffhangers Taeshi pulls).
Edit: Figures something like that poster in the last panel would be on Paulo’s wall
Qsandas May 21, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
See, Paulo really is conflicted… my drama senses are tingling, slenderman is right, it’s going to be a blitz I’d dramamommabombs up in this b***h!!
I wonder though if jasmine is going to catch on, or will she remain innocent and unnoticing of how her boyfriend actually feels.
And even us teens will never here the end of ‘put the damn home back on the line!’ Poor Paulo!

Aww… he was hoping it was Lucy calling.
I do wonder how this phone conversation is going to go. Will Jazz be able to see how his voice changed just a little?

Wait. Is Paulo’s dad hatless? What even

He is like 15. Of coarse he doesn’t know what he wants.

I hated talking on the phone when I had my first “girlfriend”
I suppose as Paulo is having commitment issues there’s a bit more going on with him.

Jazz is gonna dump him, I’m callin it rite now!!!

Oh, Paulo. We all wanted it to be Lucy, too.

No…..I was hoping it was lucy
I hope this isn’t a break up call…
Sahchan May 21, 2012, 12:27 AM EST.
I highly doubt Jazz and Paulo will break up for the following reasons:
1: there is no sign of them having a bad relationship. Paulo had a daydream. Dose that make him a cheater? No. It just makes him horny, like, let’s admit it, we all were at that age.
2: Jazz still loves him. Unless there’s been something happening off-screen, perhaps Jazmine herself cheated in Paulo, she would literally have no reason to.
3: breaking up with someone over the phone? That’s just rude. You do it person, man!
AND SO THE DEBATE COMENCES.
Curtisimo - bringin’ it back, y’all!
Curtisimo May 21, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
Guys, I highly doubt there will be a break-up. Here are my reasons why:
1) Jazzy wouldn’t do that over the phone. Seriously people.
2) She’s sensed something’s wrong with Paulo. She’s not going to break up with him, she’s going to talk with him. Why would Jazzy break up with him, when she has no clue what the problem is?
3)Remember the last time we all thought there was gonna be a breakup?
We got December, in all its heart-rending glory.
Jazzy isn’t going to break up with him - at least not yet.
Sparkfur May 21, 2012, 12:49 AM EST.
Yeaaaah….I have a good feeling that Jasmine is gonna be the one to end it….Maybe not now, but later on…

RandomLurker May 21, 2012, 12:58 AM EST.
I felt from the “…” in her tone that she was going to break up with him but I don’t think I’m right for two reasons.
1. Tae always makes us think something is going to happen but always manages to surprise me. Thats what I love about BCB, you never know what’s going to happen.
2. She wouldn’t do it over the phone, shes a nice girl. Perhaps she’s just concerned about him and how strange he has been acting?
Kit May 21, 2012, 12:59 AM EST.
For some reason, I really like the “Put it back on the charger” line. I think it’s little tidbits like that which make the dialogue feel really natural for me.

Hm, maybe they’ll just make plans…. -fingers crossed- or perhaps just talk to Paulo’s mood fro the day….? -fingers double crossed-

Man, paulio is a cheater, wants one wants another seriously .
I guess im mad cuz mike and lucy are done with :c
. Im gonna feel sad once paulio dumps jazz
But mike didnt have to be a idiot being mean to lucy . Girls are like that some
Times but i would tell her what is the problem . Instead of yelling and being a jerk : mike is great my favorite character but is kinda controling him dont
U think maybe sandy may be cheating mike [ just saying she might be controling u mike for a while then u get dumped. Game center acount =umbreon283. Friend me if you play gamecenter

Looks like she’s gonna leave him. LAWLZ DIDN’T SEE THE COMING A MILE AWAY.
anonomnom May 21, 2012, 1:28 AM EST.
Jazz doesn’t love Paulo, she cares about him. They care about each other, obviously. Looks like if a break up really is coming, it’s gonna be mutual and on good terms.
Telta May 21, 2012, 1:31 AM EST.
It’s funny how Paulo is the most sensible person in this situation… His friend is hurting, and he’s bothered because he doesn’t have all the facts yet.
He also recognizes that he likes Jazz, but he has stronger feelings for Lucy. What to do??? Especially in this mixed up and crazy high school sphere of friends and foes?
I just love his family - he’s a very straight-forward person and deep down knows how to function. And I love the trouble he gets in. Sure, he gets into trouble, has fears, encounters enemies, and messes up, but he’s not letting anything get in the way of moving forward and fixing what he can.

He shouldn’t be put into such a situation… I mean I completely understand how he would feel… -hugs Paulo- Just hang in there buddy ^^ And just as a tidbid of personal feelings… This should update faster, or days go by faster! I feel like this whole Chapter is a huge cliff hanger! Rawr! Anyways I <3 you Taeshi! You make awesome work… And yes I just felt like a Fan Boy there for a moment… I am going to wash myself in lime acid now…
Ryouji12 May 21, 2012, 2:43 AM EST.
Why do I have this odd feeling Jasmine knew something was up… and may supposedly break off her relationship with Paulo…? I mean, this is the vibe i’m kinda getting at the moment.. oh Wednesday, Y U NO come sooner? :

Suitcase, invent a time machine so I don’t have to wait for the rest of the comic. This whole thing has me on edge. I hope Paulo can get this straightened out (and hopefully stay with Jasmine).

Back to the changer when yer finished, then!
Migrant May 21, 2012, 3:58 AM EST.
I answered to your comment in the previous page.
I think that the fact that Taeshi put a star on Telta’s comment, is a sign that they are really going to break up and stay good friends (I’m not saying “in the next page” or even “in this chapter”, but it is going to happen, soon or later).
I don’t know if pauloxlucy will actually happen, but, to me, it’s clear that pauloxjasmine isn’t going to last forever (and isn’t even going to last long, at this point).
boh... May 21, 2012, 4:12 AM EST.
Paulo is conflicted as hell in this page o.O
His mind’s on two different women, right now, and he wants to do right by both of them.
But if he messes up, both girls (and himself) could wind up hurt

JerkMagicInc May 21, 2012, 6:06 AM EST.
“oh, hey jazz… could you hang up and try calling back as lucy, because, you know… i hate you, you too-good-for-me ****”
Chocothunda, lucy doesn’t even love the freak, and mike already shattered her soul, how could paulo possibly hurt lucy? more than he already has in the past, i mean.
i say paulo should do the right thing… hang himself in his room while using scissors to castrate himself.
Thanatos May 21, 2012, 6:46 AM EST.
I’m pretty sure that Jasmine has more than noticed that Paulo’s entire self isn’t all that much about her. I already knew they weren’t going to last very long, their “getting together” seemed kinda rushed. So if they break up, eh. Only better and drama-y things to come!

Huh? May 21, 2012, 9:13 AM EST.
I wonder if Jazz sense something’s up and tries to get Paulo to at least be honest with her?
If she is going to break up with him, it probably won’t be right away.
Nimbus26 May 21, 2012, 9:24 AM EST.
I always thought Jazz and Paulo were cute together…but if he doesn’t have feelings for her then it’s not worth forcing a relationship. I kind of hope for a mutual break up as well if he continues to feel this way about jasmine….and judging by jasmines past behaviors, I have a feeling she might feel the same.
He can’t force himself to love her…but they can still just be really good friends. But who knows…sometimes feelings change.
Iris May 21, 2012, 9:36 AM EST.
God, please God, let this artwork stay with us until the end.
Seriously, Taeshi, these watercolours are AMAZING.
Also, come on people, Jasmine wouldn’t break up with Paulo over the phone, she’s too nice for that.
Ditto May 21, 2012, 9:48 AM EST.
lol great poster paulo
Lonewolf May 21, 2012, 9:58 AM EST.
Way to hold in all that enthusiasm, Paulo. It totally didn’t seem like you were expecting Lucy or something. Can’t be with one girl and have another on indefinite hold.
SuperDetective May 21, 2012, 10:55 AM EST.
Yeah, I never felt any true relationship vibes from paulo x jasmine. They just aren’t that into one another. Every time Paulo has to “convince” himself that Jasmine’s “awesome” and “perfect” with a sad look on his face. Whenever they were together it was just like two friends having fun - not even any overtones. I guess Paulo hasn’t figured out yet that someone can have all the good qualities you want but still not turn you on. Maybe he will soon.
MadH May 21, 2012, 10:57 AM EST.

Uh oh.. I can see on Paulo’s face expression he thinks it’s Lucy and gets disappointed when it’s really Jazz, and Jazz doesn’t sound too excited either to talk to him.. Why do i have a feeling there will be a break up ?
Lucyluz May 21, 2012, 1:01 PM EST.
Tough choice… the girl you know you can be with, or the girl you’ve always wanted to be with, but have no guarantee… You can’t just say it boils down to who you really love either, because in my opinion, love has to be felt by both people in order for it to be true… Paulo has got himself quite the quandary.

Hoheh! May 21, 2012, 1:47 PM EST.
Yeah, I think his Dad was sleeping — maybe he gets up super early, cause he’s in the construction business; therefore he was Not wearing his hard-hat.
Paulo has shown that he’s really smart, and really motivated — only he runs by ‘his’ internal rules and not necessarily by the ones others use. I admire his wilder, less tame approach to life. His style is not the style for me, but I like watching it.
geneseepaws May 21, 2012, 2:24 PM EST.

In the next few pages, you can practically guarantee enough tension to launch a watermelon into orbit from a giant slingshot. Kind of one of the reasons I’m an introvert in Real Life is to avoid this kind of drama.
Ok, maybe it isn’t, but it’s still a good side-effect of it.
Neospector May 21, 2012, 7:35 PM EST.
Can I say that I kinda feel like Paulo and his relationships right now? I’m into someone majorly, but I like not just one, but TWO other people at the same time and it’s crushing me. Keep rocking on Paulo. Don’t get crushed like I will.

You’re absolutely right!
BlossomWolf May 21, 2012, 7:47 PM EST.
I always thought that Paulo and Jazzy got together too fast without actually getting to know each other. I think that since he is getting to know her, he probably doesn’t like her as much because he’s realizing she isn’t like Lucy at all. But idk, that’s just me.. ahh high school, such confusion. X.x

The beginning of this entire comic series flowed so much nicer, there was more story and energy. I enjoy the new art work and the plot is still good.. But it’s so sloowwww.. It’s your comic, do it how you want, but I’m just letting you know how I feel. I like how there’s more panels per comic now :3 . I’m just complaining because I’m still going to read the comic and I’d like it to move a little faster. BCB is just a little less.. I dunno.. Friendly. I used to be like “WOO what happens next??” and now I’m more “shiiiit what could happen now?…”
Bleu May 21, 2012, 11:35 PM EST.

Yeesh, your watercolors are really washed out on this page. if you don’t layer your watercolors (which it clearly looks like you don’t) I suggest you start doing so so that your colors don’t look so faded. That and don’t use so much water when you paint.
Also, Paulo’s bed is really tiny. o.O

Their relationship was foreshadowed some chapters back. Although I’d rather not see said break up, it’s gonna happen sooner or later and may be for the best.

Leifkagamine May 22, 2012, 12:37 PM EST.
@The_Guy - Then don’t read it hahaha
Lucyluz May 22, 2012, 12:50 PM EST.
yes, exactly, that could be why The_Guy wrote those things. but the difference is: he is real and can answer to us, augustus cannot.
The_Guy can think with his head, while augustus’ actions are decided by taeshi. if taeshi is putting him in a quite-good light lately, it can be for two reasons: he is really better than what you think, or he is deceiving lucy (only her because she’s the only one he talks with, for what I remember) to make her think he’s a good person, deep down, so he gains her confidence and can trap her in some way for the joy of alejandro (the true “quasi-rapist”).
this isn’t probably the case since he seemed sincere with her and even daisy, the one you say was being raped, said that maybe he’s better than how he seems.
boh... May 22, 2012, 1:49 PM EST.
Nuuu finally up to date, but i dont want to stop reading. I love this webcomic is so amazing….
Vex May 22, 2012, 2:34 PM EST.
it is different because actually augustus tried to kiss daisy (yes, now you can start saying it’s still a sort of rape), but alejandro wanted to rape lucy in the exact meaning of the term. I’m sure augustus would have never done it.
who is that “emperor of mankind” guy?? a meme?

@ VEX lol u 2 huh? i got up to date just last week. Christ this is a great comic, pay no mind to The_Guy he jus got stick up his butt and feels the need to beat ppl with it from time to time we ALL love u Taeshi
nexus doubt May 22, 2012, 4:27 PM EST.
ok but there’s something you still don’t get:
taeshi is the one who decides if augustus is good or bad.
since he’s acting quite good lately (I think that, in chapter 66, he prevented lucy to go to his town ‘cause she would have ended bad down there), all the facts you listed carry us to one conclusion: he’s not acting very coherently with how he did in the past.
I already told you this: it’s useless to attack the character, because if taeshi decides he’s good, he’s good. the most you can do is complaining with her about the inconsistency with his previous attitudes.
now that you showed me all the reasons for which he should be an *******, I’m finally convinced of the fact that he should be it, but he currently isn’t, for what I can see in the latest chapters in which he appeared.
the reason why I tried to justify his behaviour by making speculations on his past was to find a way to explain how it was possible for him to be a good person. now I really believe that there’s no way to explain it, so I hope, paradoxically, that he’s just acting, ‘cause I prefer the comic to be coherent with itself than seeing a villain become good without a reasonable explanation, even if it could be advantageous for the main characters.
after all, it seems that the last time I didn’t explain it clearly enough…
p.s. now, if you tell me “I think he’s still bad”, I wish to know how you can infer it from the latest chapters in which he is present (ok you can still use the “general ******* behaviour” card, but I think it’s not an exclusive of “bad” people).
p.p.s. I really hope you will read this before the new page comes out, ‘cause it’s late over here and I spent a good hour to write and adjust everything…
boh... May 22, 2012, 6:03 PM EST.
Pfffff OBVIOUSLY this is all in Paulo’s head as he is the last living person on Earth after a meteor hit and killed everyone else. He’s coping with the pain by making up a drama filled fantasy life with hot chic-… er cats.
Silly people and your break-up assumptions.
