She makes a very good Mike. May I humbly suggest your entire wardrobe… be more better? Secondly, did Haley just refer to Mike and Sandy’s relationship as an ‘affair’? It’s many things, long distance, doomed to fail, a crusher of social relations, but an affair is not one of them. Also, why is Mike so freaking nervous? If he can crush people for her, surely she can do the same for him.

Comment ID #218204

Wait wait wait…
The chapter is called “just beautiful”, and mike is going to see his supermodel girlfriend. Could this mean that mike breaks up with sandy, because she’s just beautiful, and a relationship with her would be meaningless, on an emotional and mental level?
Or, ya know, he could just be thinking with his second brain…
Although, when we think about it, we don’t really KNOW sandy, do we? She got a 5-page chapter detailing her life as a model (in which it was revealed she loves mike back) and a couple of flashbacks. How do we know she’s just a ditz, as the model stereotype goes? What if she’s actually as wonderful as mike makes her out to be?
What are we supposed to think then?

@Nikita
Well, I’m guessing that the relationship works kind of like how Lucy’s works in the Ask Roseville High picture I saw as an ad; both are perfectly fine defending their respective loves from the ridicule of others (mainly Paulo :/), but when it comes time to talk their feelings with their love, they break down into raw nervousness.

On topic of the chapter, I’m kind of curious about the title; I get this feeling in my head that it means more along the lines of “just beautiful”, as in, only beautiful. Something’s going to happen to Mike’s relationship with Sandy, and it isn’t going to be pretty. D:
I’m also going to make the assumption that the turbulence ahead stems from Lucy, simply because that seems the most logical. There’s two likely scenarios:
1. Mike mentions what he did to Lucy in the earlier chapter, Sandy doesn’t like it.
2. Sandy says she doesn’t like Lucy, as she did in the chapter detailing her long-distance relationship with Mike and her career. Mike doesn’t like this and defends Lucy.

Of course, I could be wrong completely, I usually am.

Ah Mike. I look forward to how this is going to go for you. Meeting the girl for the first time in years. You know only a voice and stories she has shared. I want her to tear you apart and you be left alone after what you did to Lucy.

If this starts a flame war SO BE IT! I won’t respond to any of them. ;P

Comment ID #218211

Haley’s awesome points just keep increasing exponentially. Like Never here said, the comedy is “kind of in a rut”, and it’s nice, refreshing actually, to see someone being a wisecrack without any pretentious or emotional baggage attached to it.
Also, Mike, put on your pants, I mean literally! Unless he’s wearing gray pants in the last panel, then it looks kind of weird seeing him wearing a jacket while he walks around, ahem, “butt naked”.
Mike, either you do or you don’t. Sitting in a car and feeling anxious gets you absolutely nowhere. You either go talk to her or you don’t, it’s as simple as that, if you can get past the emotions which seem to control you.
Unless, of course, you are a girl like Haley says, who by the way is showing the fortitude you need to harness.
Just ask yourself this, Mike. What kind of a man do you think Sandy would like better: one on his knees or one on his feet? 8-)

@asmodon,
ummm, haven’t you noticed that a lot of the characters do the half and half from time to time. I mean, come on man, they’re cartoon cats, i think they can be forgiven for not wearing pants. I mean if donald duck and porky pig only wear shirts or jackets with no pants i’m pretty sure no one is gonna think it’s weird if mike only wears a jacket.

Maybe Mike’s wearing pants because its so unusually cold? But seriously, I prefer it when they arent over humanized with clothing and such. It balances the organicness of the “Garfield”-esque anthropomorphic animal-ism with the humanized animal/people they are. :O <—- Jasmine still = my absolute favorite character

I think these watercolors suit BCB much better. Everyone cell-shades nowadays and using watercolors gives your art that extra spark. Also, I always loved your facial expressions—the best part about having a contemporary comic style are those great, extremely exaggerated yet expressive body gestures. Keep it up!

As for perspective, as many people have mentioned, you’ll just have to work on. I can hardly tell though, so it’s not much of an obvious flaw. :) I suck at perspective as well.

Can’t wait for the next update.

I don’t mean this to be mean, but is Sandy retarded? I’m wondering from all the other times we’ve seen her. Mind you retarded people can be gorgeous and all that too, but I’ve seriously always wondered that. I mean, she could just be irritatingly innocent, but I’m leaning on mental retardation until proved otherwise.

Again, don’t freaking take offense to it. ****** is an actual thing, not an insult. I’m not going to use one of the “nicer” ways of saying it because that’s even dumber. Accept it and move on.

I’ve read this from start to finish and I cannot understand why Mike did what he did. Okay I understand that he likes Sandy more then Lucy and I’ve come to accept that. HOWEVER I do not understand why he has to hurt people. Nobody’s perfect, and because he did that to Lucy I’m kind of hoping he loses Sandy or realizes that shes not that great.

Its not cause I dont want them to be together its that I hate how he had to brutally crush people to apperently be with her. I want to make him suffer for it.

Comment ID #218262

I’m assuming Haley wants Sandy’s entire wardrobe, she is a model after all, so she’s probably got some decent threads.

I do of course hope Mike’s little date goes perfectly, but I just can’t see that happening. Either they’ll break up, or a seed will be planted that will grow a tree of break-up that will create a crack straight down the middle of the concrete slab of their relationship.

Yes, I did enjoy that drawn-out metaphor. ;)

I just want to say to all the Mike x Lucy shippers: they will never be together.

I’m not saying this to start some kind of flame war or anything, but after everything Mike has said to Lucy I seriously doubt she would ever be able to forgive him. When someone you care about is so blatantly cruel to you and even prays on you insecurities, sending you into a horrible depression, you are hardly going to just forgive them.

Besides, if things do end badly for Mike and Sandy I highly doubt Mike would go back to Lucy anyway. He will probably think he burned that bridge by being a complete jerkass to Lucy. Besides Mike would probably be too depressed over his breakup to even consider going back to Lucy.

I’m just being realistic people. No hate intended.

i’ve found this comic just a few days ago and I must say it does a incredible magnetic power, since it just don’t let me go away. though I just found it because there is cats =P

I also must say there WILL be A LOT of drama in this chapter, Taeshi is the drama’s master and she will not start a comic with humor just for fun… just saying to prepare yourselves, biggest amount of drama EVER is coming…

for those who doubt me, remember “december” was fun until around the half…

oh,just remembered, Sandy sucks dicks too.^^

@derp,
when did i mention mickey? For the record mickey has always only worn his trademark red shorts, it wasn’t just the early incarnations (the exception being the sorceror’s apprentice cartoon in fantasia). But beyond that it doesn’t matter about the issues they deal with, it matters about what they are that determines how they are interpreted. If the characters were human and they went around naked or half naked then it’s understandable that some people may be weirded out.

But these aren’t human characters, first off their animals, we as human beings have always accepted that animals being naked is a part of their nature. So anthropomorphic or not the average reader will always see them as animals first and foremost. Second, their cartoon images, so the laws that fit in human society doesn’t apply to them unless the author decides to emphasize that these laws apply. So, i still can’t see someone being freaked out by anthropomorphic cat nudity, but this could also be from the fact that i was raised watching looney tunes and classic disney and not in the hentai/furry era where such a thing can be construed as erotic.

Well, neither seem that emotionally stable. There’s always a possibility Mike still likes Lucy, if not for the conclusion of the webcomic then for an interesting story arc. Still only a possibility though.

Taeshi, this new style is absolutely gorgeous. Holy cow. I’m also loving the presence of lightheartedness in the story again. Taeshi seems to be going back to the balance of angst and lightheartedness that I loved so much around the middle of the series. Keep it up, Taeshi! :D

In other news, yay, I’m finally caught back up in this comic! I hadn’t been reading it for about a month (not for any particular reason, I just stopped reading for a while).

@P-chan,
The scarf mike wears is from Tess, he received it after the old one was stained with blood by an paulo cheater squad attack. On top of that the blue scarf was just more or less a default item for the character design, it was never really given a backstory (as far as i know).

you know, every since Mike has started datting Sandy hes become such an *** to everyone. Maybe not his parents, who would, but to everyone else. Anyone else notice that Sandy basically changed his attuide and prespective of Lucy by saying SHE doesn’t like her?
He also became so obnoxious, he obviously can’t see Lucy is trying to be friends with him, she hasn’t even hurt him lately, while hes off saying how shes such a Bit** to him and crap. When really…hes being a whinny *** and yelling at her saying shes a Bit** when all she did was be nervous for liking him all this time.

Derp,
I paid for advertising at e621 one time after I noticed a bunch of BCB pictures being uploaded. (Un?)fortunately, after my month or so ran out Varka kept the ads running, and running, and running…

I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not worth running ads on furry/porn/furry porn sites because people chatter about it for years after because it’s so salacious.

Also, the clothing stuff is such nonsense.

I used to think she was just sweet and inocent, but now i’ve been leaning towards retarded and beautiful…..or maby she’s the cat version of a dumb blond. #4 Am I the only one strongly hoping that this all blows up in mikes face?

I’m glad you did advertise at e621, that’s how I found this comic!
And contrary to popular belief, the fact that I’m a furry makes no difference on how I view this comic. I don’t see the characters in a sexual way past what the artist has already implied (like with Paulo needing the towel back in the chapter with sick Lucy).

I don’t see these things (clothes and hair/head-fur/whatever) as being inconsistent. Seems like it’s just a matter of personal preference, or sometimes sensitivity to cold. Obviously some people like clothes for how they look, otherwise fashion models wouldn’t be a thing.

There’s nothing wrong with furry readers beyond their ability to repel non-furry readers. Same goes for porn, in my opinion. Nobody’s a sicko, I just hope people don’t make the wrong assumptions as a result of seeing porn.

Nothing I said is contradictory, Derp. I think you’re just obsessed with strange little details in a story that has no interest in telling them. Fundamentally the reason for anything regarding clothing or hair is “it looks better that way”, and any lame-*** contrived excuse from me or Vero are unnecessary and direct attention to uninteresting aspects of the comic.

Comment ID #218333

I’m not sure why so many people are rabidly anti-Sandy. If Sandy had been a main, regularly recurring character, and Lucy an only occasionally seen side-character, would people be so against Mike and Sandy getting together? Personally, I hope things go well for Mike. It’s a shame that things broke down between Mike and Lucy so quickly (relatively speaking, since it WAS about two years worth of comics that covered a span of just a few months in their world), but people do grow apart.

I also agree that Mike’s family is very entertaining. I like that the last few chapters have shown the main cast’s family members more frequently (Lucy’s brothers, Paulo’s father, and Mike’s family here).

@derp,
well that’s easily explainable, i never read the disney comics. I only watched the disney cartoons on VHS and I was mostly a looney tunes kid as well. So the only time i saw mickey in a costume outside the trademark red shorts was when i watched fantasia.

@suitcase,
Sorry for getting this subject blown out of proportion, I just thought it strange that someone would make an issue out of mike not wearing pants when he’s “naked” for the majority of the comic (asmodon’s comment). The only way i could see someone getting freaked by it is if they saw it as erotic. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as everybody’s brain is wired differently. I just commented to asmodon as i didn’t see it as an issue worth mentioning when the style of the comic doesn’t push the characters being nude as erotic (now if this was twokinds, then i’d see an issue.)

I, personally, have nothing against anyone about their own, personal things. If they want to advertise in a furry site? Who cares, it’s a comic with humanoid cats, it sorta makes sense. If a furry likes this site? Who cares?! How would we know if theyre a furry anyway? Hell, who cares if anyone’s an anything? We all got our own little boats the float, and thats ok.
And that’s proof not all southerners are racist bigots.

Another theory agustus steps into the picture, or the little lady trys to commite suicide and mike saves her. So many possibilitys right now.

It doesn’t matter that they’re animals, that’s pretty much irrelivant to the story. When I was a kid, I always drew animals with clothes simply because they were easier to draw than people (and they were cute). When I grew up and learned about these “furries” I didn’t really identify with the community. I suppose BCB can be defined as a furry comic, but since Taeshi isn’t part of the fandom it doesn’t really matter… there isn’t going to be any identification with the fandom. I got here from Homestuck (mspaintadventures.com). :T
