Edit: No wait another two pages. OMG
uh oh. i can’t believe she just did that just…wow. i’m like yashy right now i just don’t know what to say. Also first comment doesn’t feel right… not like this. Yashy is going to attack mike and possibly blur for this. i wonder how chirpy will take this news? i love bcb.
supertails19 August 10, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Uh-oh. How is Yashy going to take that bitter truth?
Anagha August 10, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Ohp. Her we go.

Oh no lucy
Awesomeness August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Yashy is really shocked, too bad, guess this chapter doesn’t end on a happy note.
Hopefully the next chap has more of the pets
The Real Lee August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
And… Yashi is in the know now o3o
Kris August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
The hard truth…
Firefly August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Oh no, poor thing. The only father figure in her life is not really there anymore, is he…?
JakeStartledTheWitch August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Yashy’s going kick Mike’s *** now.
starfighter105 August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
LO August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Yashy’s face is the exact to every fan of this comic.
derrrr August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Anddddd Yashy finds out… wonder how hard she’s going to take this.
Good to see that Lucy isn’t looking too horrible though… thought she might be losing sleep and whatnot. Definitely taking a toll on her though.
Myrrh18 August 10, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Kitty August 10, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Finally they tell her!
rtlstien August 10, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Poor Yashy’s entire world has just been shattered… I doubt she’ll take the news well… To her, it’s like her mother and father just got a divorce.
ScrabMaster August 10, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
First time we actually see her face. Great drawing.
Not sure if I’m a fan of the last panel. I get it’s suppose to be an emotional punch but it felt to ‘funny’ for a serious ending.
Mike August 10, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Love that Lucy rage face there.
Sanitarium August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Finally, I have waited 2 years for this, yashi knows the truth, can’t wait for next week!
Same cat comic
Same cat channel
Mr. Happy August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Knew there would be people waiting., but that was quick.
On another note, I guess this has been anticipated for some time. I recently bought the book, and found all the concealing events that took place, so it was only inevitable that Yashy would find out. This is perhaps more jarring, but maybe it will be an opportunity to finally see things as they really are, which will help Lucy as well.
bjk August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Looks like Lucy just grew a pair… of eyes.
Andrew Ryan August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Oh, ****. Now it’s 3 hating one.
anom August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Uh-oh, I knew the AYU-BEEM attack, but the petrifying gaze is brand new power of Lucy’s!
Anyhooo….This chapter has been a rollercoaster of emotions! I can’t wait to see what Taeshi has in store for us next!
Cavara August 10, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Welp yashy was asking for it. Its about time too,
Bluh August 10, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
SilviaTW August 10, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Oy vey. I wasnt expecting a happy resolution at the end of this chapter but ouch…… Hope they can patch things up soon QQ
(Also, that Yashy face in the last panel…… I expect him to show up at Flea’s house with a butcher knife for making his mom cry like that)
Frodomann1 August 10, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Wow, the truth comes out, on another note a lot of comments in 4minutes so far.
Moshilun August 10, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Wow. Lucy has fangs. this can’t end well.
Cookie August 10, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
I’ve never seen anyone so maligned for having a girlfriend since Kris Humphries.
Shiloh August 10, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
She had to learn this sooner or later…
And you really can’t blame Lucy bursting out like that either… Especially with someone who insists so much to know what’s freakin’ going on.
Sorry you ha to learn the hard way Yashi.
Mew August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
Oh dear, after so much to hide the truth ans shield Yashy, she finds out this way? Poor dear. This is going to be troublesome for Lucy; she has to deal with Mike’s rejection on top of what can only be Yashy’s heartbreak. Flea’s got himself divorced, dear. Hope you can cope, as well as Lucy..
RC August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
i was so scared her eyes would be 2 tone even thought there was no hits of it. and awwww yashy forgive her please.
Sahchan August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
Looks like Yasha finally got the message and unfortunately for her, it ends on a complete downer.
Nimbus26 August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
If only it were true yashy… IF ONLY IT WERE TRUUUEEE
although, I think yashy’s expression should’ve been a little different. Here eyes more open then what they are now.
SXR123 August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
Am i the only one that finds Yashy’s face hilarious?
HalfBreed August 10, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
Well this may sound evil of me, but Yashi deserves that after all the BS that she did in the past.
Darf14 August 10, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Aww poor Lucy
Nobody. August 10, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Yashy is just petrified. I kind of feel sorry for her.
Schrödinger August 10, 2012, 12:08 AM EST.
Fangirl August 10, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
Thats been coming for a long time… I mean.. Yeah.
Tom-the-Foxey August 10, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
I think thats the first time we’ve seen her eyes in a while
And this is the first time she’s snapped at Yashy
Also I am no convinced that Yashy and lily are a metaphore for the readers to main reactions
Shoop-a-doop August 10, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
Weell, that’s the saddest way to end a chapter, for Yashy anyways. I couldn’t helps but to burst out laughing at the last panel ………….. and now I feel guilty.
Lucy may still be trying to figure out what to do next, but at least she looks like she’ll be able to take it one step at a time now, well, slowly……………………… really slowly……. but that’s what the second-to-last panel seemed to tell me anyway (‘cause I thought “hey look, she may be getting her old spunk back! “. Even though that was Lucy just being irritated with the situation. Although, I suspect Lucy will be feeling guilty and would probably try to make it up to Yashy behind scenes, after she calms down, of course ).
Subaru August 10, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
After jumping through so many hoops to avoid telling her, it’s kinda funny to see Lucy finally just straight up tell her.
Also, why does everyone seem to think Yashy is a boy? x_x
Woo, another page. Next chapter is a gonna be a Yashy angst chapter! x]
Fenfir August 10, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
YES!! Another page ( haha look it’s Sandy)
SilviaTW August 10, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
It’s about time that Yashi found out. I figured something like this would happen, but I didn’t think it would be Lucy telling Yashi.
I feel really bad for Lucy..
And I can’t wait to see how Yashi reacts. I hope she doesn’t take it too hard..
HimbeCat379 August 10, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
I was expecting Lucy to tell Yashy the truth, but didn’t think it would be like this. Well, the truth came out and its time for Yashy to think differently now which is for the best.
Another beautifully made chapter btw.
Sepiawolf August 10, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
wait there is another page left? awesome something else to look forward to on a monday yay. edit: 2 more pages now you just giving me more reasons to like you Taeshi.
supertails19 August 10, 2012, 12:12 AM EST.
Oh no Mike has a girlfriend, we’ve only known this since around chapter 30 or so. That’s like what 2-4 years for the BCB universe. OOoooohhhh nnoooooo.
ohno August 10, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
Hey, that’s the idea- yell it to her that her “daddy” was never her daddy. That’ll fix EVERYTHING!
KeyFox August 10, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
ohh another 2 pages miscount
Sahchan August 10, 2012, 12:14 AM EST.
Ooh Lucy! Yelling at yashy? TT_TT who’s fault is it that she doesn’t understand?
Btw taeshi, I love bottom half of this page. Very dramatic.
taNi August 10, 2012, 12:14 AM EST.
Am I a bad person if this page made me laugh?…..cuz it did
Redneck August 10, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
Yashi is making the exact same mistake that Lucy did: to think that everything will always remain the same just because it has always been like that. So often people has happiness within his reach and loses the chance because they believe the chance will be there forever. And then when you open your eyes to the truth, the ship has sailed.
“He always comes back”, “He always does”. Not this time. Not anymore.
Cavara August 10, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
Welcome to BCB, Yashy. Lucy will be your host, dropping furry bombs of drama and angst on your face whenever you bring up Mike. What?! What do you mean you’ve been here since the first chapter?!
Tl;dr: ‘S’bout time Yashy woke up and smelled the coffee.
Dnite August 10, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
Kind of hard to tell what Lucy is upset with: Mike, Sandy, or herself. Maybe it’s a combination of the three.
It’s also difficult to tell if she’s emotionally cut ties with Mike and now wards off such feelings by holding him in contempt or if she’s still attracted to him, but is angered by the fact he already has Sandy.
Personally, I’d just cut myself loose. Somethings aren’t worth holding onto, especially if it hurts more than it heals. Sure, it would be nice if they could at least be friends, but for that to happen their relationship needs to stop being a constant transition of hot and cold (Lucy obviously heating up now, whereas she was passive during the December chapter, and now Mike taking on a passive role where he was mounting the offensive before).
LevelUp August 10, 2012, 12:19 AM EST.
I’m…I’m a bad person. I can’t believe I laughed at the last panel…it’s just…I’m a bad person, I’m sorry.
waaat August 10, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
Lucy, you could have broken this news in a more tactful way. Yashy didn’t know any better!
Skygaze August 10, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
Unable…….to….ha……contain HA!……all the lols
Last panel is unbearable. Yashi got told. it help distract me from the pure hatred in Lucy’s eyes.
Kindle Kat August 10, 2012, 12:23 AM EST.
I laughed at the last panel… I feel bad.
Hhfs August 10, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
@Cavara If I can give you some award for what you just said I would. Lucy was the one who kept pushing him away, she kept pushing Paolo away too not to mention Liam (fan character I know but she did the same thing)… Carter does not apply.
But she did this to herself, her indecisive behavior got her into this rut now she’ll have to sleep in the bed she made. Too bad, so sad, there shouldn’t be any remorse for the self inflicted.
Jack August 10, 2012, 12:26 AM EST.
Mike! It’s all your fault again! Everyone hate Mike for circumstances beyond his control!!
Inukai August 10, 2012, 12:26 AM EST.
Wow, it actually seems strange that Lucy’s first facial appearance is anger. She seemed so sad this whole time… I guess it’s to be expected but damn.
Pinkie Pie August 10, 2012, 12:27 AM EST.
No ****, Sherlock.
Poor Yashy, being the last one to know.
Lycan2 August 10, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.
OH! Poor Yashy, right in the childhood! Her little face says it all.
UltimateZ August 10, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.
I remember that this used to be a simple love story … now its like a soap opera
P4ND4 August 10, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
and this is when yashi kills michel
lucyxpaulo27 August 10, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
Aaaand boom goes the dynamite…
Anon Cannon August 10, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
Ooo yashy don’t worry there will be a much better guy for her in the future
Midstrike August 10, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
Lucy dropped the F bomb! O.o
John August 10, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
You can taste the wtf.
KiwiKoala August 10, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
Very nice to see Yashy actually care for the both of them for once in her life! Yashy will have a bit of a shock and will probably hate “Flea” for doing that to her. But knowing Lilly, she again, will be the one to solve all of this. I believe that.
Yorky August 10, 2012, 12:34 AM EST.
These last couple of pages just don’t seem to fit (in this particular chapter that is). I know we just made a big turn in the plot with Sandy telling Mike to be nice to Lucy, but doesn’t it seem like it should be part of a different chapter starting at about page 29? I mean, Isn’t it a little over the top to have the whole scarf-attitude-symbolism-hatetojoyinjustafewpages thing, and then have the whle Yashy is clueless plot device explode in the same chapter? I guess it might tie together in the remaining 2 pages, but I digress. Oh, and by the way, why is there a big blank space in the bottom right corner?
The Man August 10, 2012, 12:35 AM EST.
I guess it was time that she had to find out, this is probably the first time we’ve seen Lucys face in a while, unfortunately it is still one of extreme pain…I hope we get to see her smile again soon.
Kitmit August 10, 2012, 12:38 AM EST.
oh… that must feel werid..
NegaSimon August 10, 2012, 12:39 AM EST.
I laughed at the last panel. Hard. I’m not sorry lol.
I like seeing Yashy get shut up for ONCE.
Ventus August 10, 2012, 12:41 AM EST.
At first I was like “WHAT!?! THIS IS HOW THE CHAPTER ENDS?!?” Then I saw the Note about two more extra pages to come, and I was immensely relieved.
Frodomann1 August 10, 2012, 12:44 AM EST.
Yashys reactions is the same type of reaction you would get if you told a 3 year old santa was raped by one of his own Elves
Rozon August 10, 2012, 12:45 AM EST.
Nooo dont hurt yashy like that. It’s not her fault she wasnt told what was going on!!!!!
Cyph August 10, 2012, 12:46 AM EST.
I don’t know what it is about the art of this page, maybe it’s the shading, but this is my favorite page out of the new style. I really like Lucy’s expression too.
Canny August 10, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
Poor Lucy, she looks terrible! Why did you have to hurt her Mike?
On another note, this is probably a stupid question but are the intermission comics part of the book?
pizza man August 10, 2012, 12:52 AM EST.
I’ve always hated yashi. Biggest copyright infringement and just an obnoxious character with no depth.
Johncoupe August 10, 2012, 12:55 AM EST.
@Taeshi: you little vixen you, adding two more pages.
I love the look on Yashy’s face in the last panel.
sen August 10, 2012, 12:58 AM EST.
I just hope yashy can forgive her mum for this. I think Lucy needs them more than she knows and now that yashy knows the score she’s in a better position to help emotionally.
Cyph August 10, 2012, 1:05 AM EST.
First time we see her face in a while… She looks so tired and beaten (not literally, of course). It makes me want to cry.
Maliit.Na.Kuting August 10, 2012, 1:06 AM EST.
I feel so bad for Yashi. She was ignorant of everything and her life now is going to completely change. Yashi was my favorite of the pets, spite the fact she’d swear every two words. She’s probably not not going to be like that for awhile. I feel so sad, it just happened now but dear jezz. She always thought Lucy and Mike were together. And know that the truth’s out, she’s going to shattered.
A little bird August 10, 2012, 1:17 AM EST.
As much as it stung to read than, and how hurtful Yashy will feel from it….that was just one of the things that had to be said. Out of all the things Yashy could have discovered from this cluster of drama, that would’ve been the best thing to find out. Yashy’s like a child of a divorcing couple; it hurts but children shouldn’t be left in the dark, if it involves them then they have a right to know.
Seikyuu August 10, 2012, 1:26 AM EST.
Oh Lucy, how i feel sorry for you right now.
Its only a shame that her depression is now going to plague Yashy and Chirpy. My god, their falling into a wreck.
zandramus August 10, 2012, 1:33 AM EST.
oh balls. that’s right, yashy didn’t know up until this point….
Konikaa August 10, 2012, 1:35 AM EST.
Yashy!Your face is priceless!
Why you askin? August 10, 2012, 1:36 AM EST.
It’s probably a relief to have that out in the open for both Mike and Lucy… I do feel sorry for Yashi though, because ignorance is (especially in this case) bliss.
Chinatsu August 10, 2012, 1:36 AM EST.
But Lucy does look older than what she use to look like.
Why you askin? August 10, 2012, 1:37 AM EST.
Why do I have the strangest feeling that either one of two things are gonna happen?
Option 1: Yashi decides to go talk to Mike/ beach at him for making Lucy upset. (This one, I’m less sure of.)
Option 2: Yashi runs away from home because everything she knew is.. Well, ruined. This will either mame Lucy even more depressed, or force her to turn to her friends and, gasp, maybe even Mike for help.
Either way, I’m 99.999% sure Yashi is going to yell.
NightFeather August 10, 2012, 1:42 AM EST.
Yashy probably feels like her parents just divorced… and I feel really sorry for her, but… her face looks so funny
Laufente August 10, 2012, 1:44 AM EST.
Batman August 10, 2012, 1:51 AM EST.
Aaaand there goes Yashy’s brain…
Spiritwolf15 August 10, 2012, 1:54 AM EST.
Blam. Shot through the heart. Poor yashi, but she did ask for it.
Levy August 10, 2012, 1:55 AM EST.
I do think Lily had a point in turning him away; Mike’s just not ready to really accept Lucy.
HOWEVER I don’t know how anybody can know that Mike’s ready if they don’t even let him speak to Lucy. Personally, if I had doubts that Mike would make anything better, I would ask him to leave only AFTER I heard what he had to say.
Sure, he has a girlfriend. So Mike can’t have a ROMANTIC relationship with Lucy. But at least let him give her something.
I hope Mike comes back without Sandy’s go-ahead, just out of his own guilt. Then at least they can be peaceable. That’s what Lucy needs, not romantic love, just friendly companionship from the boy who was always there for her.
Does Mike even realize what he meant to Lucy, or is he only thinking of Lucy objectively, as a lifelong crush he tried to woo until the passion faded and an old flame reignited? He did mean something to her, even before she developed romantic feelings—she doesn’t just miss him because he was a little crush, but because he was her best friend, her confidant— the yang to her yin, a person who should be bonded in some way, romantically or otherwise.
AAAAAUUUGGGH SORRY I WRITE SUCH LONG POSTS.
GUEST August 10, 2012, 2:00 AM EST.
From my experience, three things can happen, emotion-wise, when told your parents are no longer together:
1. Crying: You cry. Hardcore, as loud as you can to drown out the explanations.
2. Anger: Go nuclear on whoever caused the world to crash down around you.
3. Denial: It’s a horrible joke, right? Why would anyone want to leave mom/dad; she/he’s the best… they love each other, right?!
How Yashy will deal is anyone’s guess; hell she could do a ‘you’re obviously too good for him’ speech to try to cheer Lucy up, they way she’s seeing Lucy’s reaction to Mike.
…So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it’s old partner but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da…
Kureji-neko August 10, 2012, 2:04 AM EST.
Am I a bad person for laughing at Yashy’s expression in the last panel?
Back on topic to the actual plot development in the story as of now, Yashy’s initial response just shows the shock she’s realizing. She’s been so used to ‘Flea’ going back to Lucy all these years that when they finally ‘break up’ its as if her world has crashed down too. Mike is basically a father figure to her and this whole situation is practically a divorce of her parents.
Anyway, amazing page as always, I hope I didn’t banter too much
GhastlyGirl August 10, 2012, 2:12 AM EST.
I just have to put this out there. Lucy reacted to Yashy just now like Mike did to Lucy recently. In anger. She wasn’t thinking of how it would effect Yashy, she was just angry. And later, she will feel bad for doing so. It’s a shorter, less serious version of Mike’s Apocalyptic Rage. To those who fault Mike entirely while putting Lucy on a pedestal of perfection, this should show them that their blue-eyed Angel is prone to the same mistakes as the biggest ******* in the universe.
Adrian Fife August 10, 2012, 2:14 AM EST.
her face rofl
Aspear August 10, 2012, 2:17 AM EST.
Oh come now, Michael. You already broke her heart. You deserve this now. Disappear right now. She wants to recover it: her self-confidence.
Welcome to her pain. Sucks when niceness does nothing. Third haiku for you.
Hoheh_Iyah_Hohee August 10, 2012, 2:27 AM EST.
Wonder if Mike will admit to Sandy that he didn’t actually end up talking to Lucy.
Titanium Dragon August 10, 2012, 2:29 AM EST.
@Batman man I love it when you comment xD
Anyhow… I know how Yashi feels. Being a kid and then having your mother figure tell you your father and her aren’t together… it’s just… horrible. but enough about that. I think that this will be a hard blow on Yashi.
Rae Chan August 10, 2012, 2:35 AM EST.
I really hope Lucy doesn’t go overboard and blow up at Yashy :< The one exclamation alone has just shredded the image of what she saw as her family. I’m glad she is on the same page and can face this with everyone else, but this is not the way the message should be received.
nightengale August 10, 2012, 2:37 AM EST.
why all this tearing in freindship have to happen
lidoy August 10, 2012, 2:38 AM EST.
@JakeStartledTheWitch has a painfully good point…
She really did see mike as her father figure….
How will she take this? :\
headdesk August 10, 2012, 2:44 AM EST.
to be quite honest i think Lucy is going to be showing a harsher side now that everything mike has made her believe to be true. i have kinda been through the same as Lucy not to that level of hatred that mike has shown her but it was the same. I felt so much anger that it was the only emotion i showed people and it sucked. i hope Lucy becomes happy again i love her when she is happy she is adorable
madi-san August 10, 2012, 2:56 AM EST.
epic last panel xD!
Jlaw August 10, 2012, 2:58 AM EST.
RIGHT in the childhood Lucy..right there
Kitsumi August 10, 2012, 3:08 AM EST.
No worries, he has probably a couple more years to talk to lucy before he actually meets Sandy again!
Cavara August 10, 2012, 3:10 AM EST.
Zero August 10, 2012, 3:16 AM EST.
Oh ****. **** on ****, this is it!
Slenderman August 10, 2012, 3:18 AM EST.
If you look at everything through Lucy’s eyes, her reaction was understandable. She’s going through a lot, and is having a tough time dealing with such drastic heartbreak. I mean Mike didn’t only break her heart, he broke her soul. It will be interesting to see how she interacts with everyone at school again.
As for Yashy, yes, her world will be shattered. But it’s better to let someone know the truth than to lie to them for a long period of time. Yashy was being a little brat about everything, even after Lily said to cut it out, and naturally, Lucy lashed out. But now, with her even more delicate demeanor and situation, she went to such an extreme to break the news the way she did.
Sigh. Lucy, I wish I could give you a tight hug.
Taeshi, nice job, I think this all flows nicely. I like the transition from Mike’s environment to Lucy’s, it was quite smooth. Looking forward to the next 2 pages.
Amaris August 10, 2012, 3:24 AM EST.
We’re building to the climax! (if you don’t get that reference you weren’t an amine kid) honestly though, it’s surprising they got that bird to shut up. But I wonder, are these little creatures supposed to represent Tashi and them? Or arethey just there as pets? And wouldn’t it be weird to have animals having animals as pets? And you can totally tell that when the hedge hog girl grows up (if she does) she’ll be the hot book nerd girl. The stuck up kind who doesn’t buy into that highschool dram crap. Where as the other two will get lost into whatever click they find. She’ll be the girl who when a guy (hopefully her boyfriend) tries to take advantage of her, she judo kicks him in the junk and says: I have a black belt in Judo, karate, marshal arts, and am skilled in kind fighting. (this is what I think about while I’m stalking you all.)
Slenderman August 10, 2012, 3:34 AM EST.
Yashy = mind blown
taro August 10, 2012, 3:47 AM EST.
The last panel was the best. Literally an art materpiece. Probably best drawing miss authress did so far.
Commander_Zero August 10, 2012, 4:04 AM EST.
Lol, love Yashy’s face at the end.

No offense but the bitchy daughter had to know.
Knux-the-Killer August 10, 2012, 4:47 AM EST.
Maybe Yashy’s right. Maybe. I don’t know really, but the kid just wants Lucy happy. The poor thing…
Lo August 10, 2012, 5:29 AM EST.

Cavara come here and lemme bake u a pie for ur nice comment
Taeshi come here and lemme bake u a cake o-o
Nekomimi August 10, 2012, 6:27 AM EST.
Love yashi’s expression in the final panel. I can just imagine the next thing she says being:
“…son of a ****!”
Bit-small August 10, 2012, 6:30 AM EST.
She may not realize it but yasy was right, (hey! I remembered yashy’s name!) He was coming back but she pushed him away. Poor yashy, her whole world just fell apart in 4 to 5 words. Hey lucy, You just made it worse! Thought I let you know.
Who? August 10, 2012, 6:53 AM EST.
Boom. metaphorical nuclear bomb dropped.
Otto August 10, 2012, 6:59 AM EST.
I almost fell off my chair reading this page.
To Yashy, it’s seems that everytime her ‘mum’ and ‘dad’ had a fight, they would always find a way back into each others practice, and she believes that they will sort it out and be a ‘couple’ again. But this time…. This time it won’t happen. Lucy won’t let it happen. All my days reading this comic I thought Mike was gonna be the one to break the news to Yashy but Lucy did. (Basically telling her that her everything was a lie. Her expectations now destroyed.) Oh and Lily tried to stop Yashy, telling her to leave the topic alone.
Now her ‘Parents’ or devorcing.
What? August 10, 2012, 7:18 AM EST.
Megadude August 10, 2012, 7:28 AM EST.
CLIFFHANGERED AGAIN FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
And here I was, all excited that an arc ended as the week ended… I should have known better… -sigh-
TheEsquire August 10, 2012, 7:34 AM EST.
Thought this might happen in one way or another.
I think its for the best that Yashi and any other pet of Lucy’s that doesn’t know whats going on should finally have the air cleared out for them of who is responsible of Lucy’s depression state, and I’m sure a lot of people who read this comic agrees to that as well.
I’m just curious of what Yashi is going to do next, oh why is Monday so far away?!
KitKatMuffin August 10, 2012, 7:43 AM EST.
In a way, Yahy’s words kinda prove Mike’s point. He was sick of always going back to her. So it’s proof he wasn’t just making up excuses.
Wolvine August 10, 2012, 7:48 AM EST.
i usually hate drama’s but this one is so interesting and just gets you caught up in it.
1337c47 August 10, 2012, 7:49 AM EST.
” Also first comment doesn’t feel right… not like this.” - supertails19
what is with people and getting the god damned first comment? you act like it’s such a dramatic “winning!” moment in life, and it is so ****ing pathetic.
it doesn’t feel right… not like this? you act like you just won a competition at the expense of someone you care about, did someone DIE for you to get the first comment, or something?
granted, i’d laugh my *** off if a person died everytime someone said “first comment!”, because they’d be guilty of murder, then.
i can’t help but snap everytime i see crap like that, so i’ll stop there and get back on topic, ‘KAY?!
yay, yashy is broken… time to grow up, little girl.
took long enough for lucy to tell her that, i was wondering if we’d ever get to see yashy heart broken and speechless, this is now one of my favorite pages.
can’t wait to see what happens in the next two pages.
Thanatos August 10, 2012, 7:50 AM EST.
And lo the truth is out.
How will Yashy react?
Tune in Monday folks.
wr3h August 10, 2012, 7:57 AM EST.
Oh no no no…..
…well, he would have to find out anyway…. at some point.
Wouldn’t it have sucked worse if he only found out right before mike leaves to go to Sandy’s or something along those lines? That would have been bad.
Blossom August 10, 2012, 8:05 AM EST.
That cat wearing lipstick graphic on the front page is kind of terrifying. Also, I can’t tell what that little angry thing is.
Adekii August 10, 2012, 8:14 AM EST.
NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! YASHI CAN LEARN THE TRUUUUUUUUUUTH!!!!!!! Well. I guess now hes gonna hate Mike too. Poor Mike. He made himself the bad guy but i know he can make things right… Hopefully….

Anyways. I really love this. The face on Lucy is just amazing. Good work Taeshi .

Flyboy August 10, 2012, 10:27 AM EST.
Oh snap! Anyway it would seem that the time has come for Yashy to know the truth. She think that this is what she percieves that Mike and Lucy are together but the fact is that Lucy has always been in the friend zone. If Yashy is to understand then this may be the time.
On a side note, it is good to see Lucy’s face again. It’s been long since we saw her entire face. Plus, I see she needs to straighten things out with Yashy to better define to her ralationship with Mike. Yashy’s world will never be the same.
Starkeyblade August 10, 2012, 10:32 AM EST.
Omg after 2 weeks of reading 9 years worth ive finally caught up!
Damn, lucy! You harsh! I just knew that lucy would do that, though, cuz if she didnt then yashi wouldnt shut up. EVER.

Yashy died inside.
Like, her heart is just obliterated.

…….I never thought Lucy would ever tell that to Yashy..

paulosawesome August 10, 2012, 11:16 AM EST.
Oh my goodness stop please you’re breaking my heart. Lucy doesn’t yell at her pets. Not even when they’re being insufferable or rude or anything. Lucy loves her pets. How broken does she have to be to snap like that? I just… I was going to leave a coherent review but now I actually just want to cry.
That white space is like silence to me. Like you can hear the words ringing and don’t know what to do about them.
Lucky August 10, 2012, 12:27 PM EST.
Lesson learned: Make sure all of your pets are up to date on your social going-ons. Particularly ones that think you and one of your friends is their parents.
Jessica U. Ingmann August 10, 2012, 12:38 PM EST.
i don’t understand why most of you think yashi will go beat up mike now. i suppose that would be her usual action but judging by her face in the last panel i think she’s more likely to go into denial. i understand lucy for lashing out but if she doesn’t calm down quick she’s going to be just like mike. i don’t think anyone is at fault here honestly. they’re teenagers, i don’t think many of us would react very different from them given the same situations.
blueberry August 10, 2012, 12:51 PM EST.
haha, effin’ deal with it Yashi. You’re a spoiled brat anyway, you deserve a good yelling and maybe a good spanking. Good!
Booka August 10, 2012, 1:42 PM EST.
Gasp!yashy finds out!
Probably she chase after mike
Or she burst into tears
It must be a suprise for her,losing her father figure
And to top it off,lucys angry ‘i hate him and i want him to die’ face
Cant wait to see next week comic!:D

Lucy. You have said to Mike that he shouldn’t say the truth to Yashy. And now you said it by yourself. I don’t understand her mind.
And now Yashy’s little, poor heart is crushed. :< And because she’s a little child now and her parents aren’t together anymore… I know how she feels.
Why Lucy and Mike can’t just try to be friends?
…Wait. That’s why I love BCB.
And I already want to know what happens!

yashy is like DA FUQQ. meanwhile does anyone remember when augustus got back and the guy was no worries we will get them back soon? i wonder when will that be.

Also… MIKE YOU FRIGGEN SUCK FOR HURTING LUCY SO BAD SHE WOULD SNAP AT HER PETS LIKE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Outraged at mike August 10, 2012, 6:58 PM EST.
Last panel: “Aliens”
Breaker19 August 10, 2012, 7:01 PM EST.
I kinda hated Mike for what he did until Sandy actually showed up…it’s kind of hard to take their relationship serious and easy to root for Lucy since you see her with him more often (and there is at the very least some chemistry there)….but when we got a proper explaination and I saw how happy the two of them were together and his story of how she opened his eyes to how badly Lucy can treat him….I guess I kind of understood? He shouldnt have been so hated for not being able to do anything when she confessed, she’s known how he felt all along and still put them both in that situation…..
Honestly i don’t know whose side to come down on anymore @.@
JamesO August 10, 2012, 7:17 PM EST.
Yashy: “Shuuuuuuuuun” q.q
MURDER_Kitty August 10, 2012, 7:30 PM EST.
Oh no, Yashi…. You had to find out, but not like this! God Lucy, you didn’t have to scream at her!
Luna Lovegood August 10, 2012, 7:42 PM EST.
Oh no, Yashi, Lucy why did you scream at her Mike come back!!!! Please come back to Lucy!
Sophia123 August 10, 2012, 7:48 PM EST.
Lol! Yashy’s facial expressions over the truth!
Jared Wolf August 10, 2012, 9:26 PM EST.
Oh gosh… poor Yashy… I can relate because my parents got divorced. And that’s a terrible way to find out, even if they’re not really her parents

Unfortunately, I never liked Yashy… but I feel sorry for her that she has to learn the truth this way.

I mean shut yashi right up.
Gershnargin August 10, 2012, 11:47 PM EST.
she has a girlfriend… SO WHAT?!!!!!!!!!
Sarge August 10, 2012, 11:49 PM EST.
I honestly dont know if i can side with anyone here…. Mike has been abused by Lucy since grade school, quite viciously at times as well, and Lucy has had her heart(whoa alliteration) broken by him. and then theres the long distance relationship pressures, peer pressure, hormones,half drowning….
but seriously though why not Zoidberg?
(V) ;,,; (V)
PANTSoNtHEgROUND August 10, 2012, 11:51 PM EST.
I find it hilarious how everyone is putting crying faces and saying “Poor Yashy, poor Yashy—her world must have shattered!” when all I can think is “She’s going to scream about how “Flea” is a no good cheater and run off to hit himin the next page, isn’t she?”
Boo August 11, 2012, 1:01 AM EST.
Poor Yashi… I bet it’s like her parents got divorced or something… Dramatic, but I couldn’t help but laugh at her face in the last panel.
She’s either going to go in denial, or go beat the CHEATER! up with Paulo’s cheater squad.
And is it just me, but does Lucy’s bangs seem longer now?
brostrider August 11, 2012, 1:08 AM EST.
Just grow up Yashy! Like everyone else did.
John August 11, 2012, 1:18 AM EST.

Mike August 11, 2012, 2:55 AM EST.
You can actually hear the glass shattering, I swear.
RavenHeart98 August 11, 2012, 3:17 AM EST.
after all… Yashy is very right. I hope Mike stops being an *** after all this… and Lucy stops being so mean to him! they are both jerks… But I like them a lot
NirvaNOX182 August 11, 2012, 4:35 AM EST.
ok its hard to read his face in the last panel is it “Lucy you bitch” or “micheal WTF?!”

Yashy is a girl.
Luminescent Leijon August 11, 2012, 9:05 AM EST.
It’s about time Yashy found out, Lucy really should have told her earlier.
Lava Flower August 11, 2012, 2:21 PM EST.
And Taeshi pulls off the excellent maneuver of TWO MORE PAGES! After I read the page, I was thinkin “Man, what a way to end the chap—*looks at author comment* waitaminnit…*looks at page count* WHERE’D THOSE TWO PAGES COME FROM?!”
Anyway, for this page…
Damn…it’s a bit heartbreaking to see Yashy like this; she doesn’t understand the intensity of this situation. Lily doesn’t want to say anything, but what Lucy said must be like an earth-shattering kaboom for Yashy.
These last few pages got me thinkin…why exactly did Lucy throw that snowball at Mike? Could it be that she wanted to remind Mike of the good times of their friendship? If that’s the case, that’s…actually really sweet of her o.O
Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yashy started calling Mike a cheater after this revelation. That’ll be a dark call-back to when Mike couldn’t escape that word (and was subsequently getting beaten because of it).
Chocothunda August 11, 2012, 2:22 PM EST.
Yashy threw the snowball.
Candy Bar August 11, 2012, 3:01 PM EST.

1337c47 August 11, 2012, 5:50 PM EST.
Mike is SUCH A *******. He’s been so hateful to Lucy, and yet is still angered by her presence in the previous panels… It soothes my soul to imagine Paulo literally knocking some sense into him. I don’t know how he could ever make up for what he’s done.
Thomas August 11, 2012, 8:02 PM EST.
Personaly i’ve always found yashi to be annoying. I mean i think she is a funny comic relef but u have no idea how happy i am that she’ll finnaly get it. Talk about clue less. She may be a pet, but treated like a person, well to an extent. My dog knows when i’m sad, and he’s my pet so i’m just saying here we have yashi, a pet who can friggin talk to u. Grrr yashi
JustSomeCritic August 11, 2012, 8:45 PM EST.
grr 4 that matter, what the hell is yashi anyway? are there more? is she yoshi’s kid? questions questions …………never mind i figured it out………..Sidekick lol
JustSomeCritic August 11, 2012, 8:48 PM EST.
Is it just me or does Yashy deserves it?
Sorry, cold hearted on this one.
Bolverk August 12, 2012, 12:43 AM EST.
the only thing i can think of when i see Yashy’s face in the last panel is “because aliens.”
META COOLER August 12, 2012, 2:17 AM EST.
oh god that must have been a slap in the face for yashy
Crimson Dragon August 12, 2012, 2:44 AM EST.
…man, that makes it EVEN MORE heartbreaking for Yashy
Chocothunda August 12, 2012, 3:26 AM EST.
…I bet that felt like a massive wrecking ball to the face…
Randomperson August 12, 2012, 7:26 AM EST.

I am completely comfortable with that =)
xain August 12, 2012, 7:40 AM EST.
Been gone for a few weeks, come back and the site remembered the page I was on and my comment name. I love this place so much.
Nicholas August 12, 2012, 8:21 AM EST.
I bet u guys that yashi will cry saying its not true and she will run off and lucy will say wait don’t go and mishul will find her in the snow. Not really betting. Mike tried to do The right thing and ended up Back firing then (futre) gets sold after yashi mike found and mike saves her and brings yashi Back to sobbing lucy who will probably hug him then they will talk things through then its a happy story again.
mikedawn August 12, 2012, 11:08 AM EST.
Yashy’s face = omg my world as I know it is over and has all been a lie.
I’d do the same thing just walk away, its easier than letting the person who “hates” you know their actions are affecting you. It just gives them more power over your emotions.
Nakashi August 12, 2012, 11:52 AM EST.
“HE HAS A GIRLFRIEND!!”
“SO WHAT?! DEAL WITH IT!”
Boom. All the angst handled with a witty retort. I should write these.
Well, if Yashy attacks Mike, let’s hope he realises she’s like… tiny, maybe put her in a cereal box or something, send her gift wrapped to Lucy.
Nice watercolour effects (kinda). Like the style you’ve been working on. Kudos!
Roxor41 August 12, 2012, 5:53 PM EST.
… Scary… I really hope that, like Kitmit, we see Lucy smile soon. Also, Poor Yashy… I feel bad for her.
Person in the corner August 13, 2012, 6:10 PM EST.
ASDFGHJKL!! Dammit all, I skip BCB for a few weeks and this is what happens? I thought that this was going to be a feel-good chapter for Mike, but, NOOOOOO, why would you even do this to me, to us readers?
I feel bad for Lucy (well, I have been, ever since Mike told her to stay away from him), but mostly for Yashy, with his distorted view in the world. It seems he’s still stuck in the time where everything was okay, and Lucy and Mike can fight it out and still be friends.
Now, I’m definitely curious as to how this chapter will end.
Anjo August 14, 2012, 10:05 AM EST.
Someone please subtitle that final pannel with “Aliens” and turn it into a meme… Please?
Seraphara August 15, 2012, 3:10 AM EST.
Why is it that the first thing that came to mind upon seeing that image of Yashi was…
“We need to take Sandy…”
“And move her somewhere else!”
God I hate spongebob.
Zero_Starlight August 16, 2012, 5:44 PM EST.
Yashy was kinda pushing it a little too far.
