Paulo is too kool for skool
Poor Paulo, all jelly of the good grades, stop makin’ Daisy worry.

That is so mean Paulo!
This page looks amazing! Great job!
Kay-felis August 8, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
what is this grayness around Daisy
SirDavid2 August 8, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
Kind of feel bad for Paulo.
Anon-Anon August 8, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
Battle of what? OF WHAT?! *Paulo voice* “WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?”
Mcturtle August 8, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
Someone’s a little depressed, huh. (and I’m not talking about Daisy)
Joltarn August 8, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
It seems like Paulo is reverting to his old ******* self. I hope this isn’t the case. I had preferred “new Paulo”.
Be3N2 August 8, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
There goes Daisy. All she needs is to step towards Paulo and Abbey will initiate Protective Jealousy Mode.
Gate-Senpai August 8, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
Yay!~ Nice page!~ >w
Apple-chan August 8, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
I assumed Daisy would just brush a comment like that off as Paulo being Paulo, but rather she gave credence to it. Could this mean she possibly has feelings for him?! Ooh, the drama!!! x
SIGxMUNDx808 August 8, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
Smartass Paulo, Bitter Paulo. Both are surprisingly entertaining to listen to.
Well, Daisy seems bothered by Paulo’s attitude. For some reason. I honestly can’t figure why. I mean, sure, he’s being kind of wierd. And he does seem at least somewhat upset. And they ARE friends, so…
…nevermind, I think I figured it out.
*starts self-speculating over what’s to come off of given information*

Apple-chan August 8, 2013, 1:04 PM EST.
Obviously Paulo isn’t one for studying or school. I wonder why Daisy is so concerned about something. Lucy? Augustus? Something else? I’m still agitated from the “No Lucy” thing and I really want to see the rest of this chapter. Well, at least I’ll wait until then….
Keyblade Dragon August 8, 2013, 1:05 PM EST.
Paulo won’t you be embarrassed when you guys are old enough for university and everyone in your group BUT you are in university but you are stuck in High School? You need to lighten up about them WANTING to learn!
Shira Hoult August 8, 2013, 1:05 PM EST.
Hhaha got paulo good hahaha FAIL OVER 9000
Bbrad August 8, 2013, 1:05 PM EST.
That sounds like something lucy would say…
I have no idea August 8, 2013, 1:07 PM EST.
Hey I resent that. I may be a nerd but I sure as hell am smarter than you Paulo
Anyway this page is very well draw and anyone else see how annoyed/****** off Sue is. Seriously that is one of the scariest glares I have ever seen.
RPG Nerd August 8, 2013, 1:08 PM EST.
Paulo’s right, all that test talking is annoying. When something bad happens you best not dwell on it!

x SHIP IT SHIP IT! Does anyone agree? Paulo and Daisy sitting in a tree K-i-s-s-i-n-g!

Can someone talk to Paulo? Not you, Daisy. Spend time with Abbey.
Meow August 8, 2013, 1:17 PM EST.
I don’t see this being a DaisyxPaulo thing. They’re close—she knows him pretty well and can tell when he’s upset. This is probably just genuine concern.
Although Abbey… lol
Hunnikitty August 8, 2013, 1:25 PM EST.
Oh hey, Maybe Daisy realizes she should’ve helped Paulo more instead of pandering to pissy spoiled baby Abbey.
Or the fact that Lucy’s gone forever.
Naah can’t be the last part.
With the amount of care shown in the previous chapters for Lucy, she’s taken the invisible bus out of the story and ain’t comin’ back.
They’re treating her more like a distant acquaintance than a friend they miss.
With friends like these
Limb August 8, 2013, 1:29 PM EST.
Well she WAS suppose to help him study
Amber August 8, 2013, 1:31 PM EST.
Ah! Paulo made me laugh! Poor Daisy.
Discord5 August 8, 2013, 1:35 PM EST.
@Amber I agree, people seem to be missing the point. Daisy agreed to help HIM study, not invite a bunch of people over and then leave him and study with her boyfriend instead. Of course Paulo feels bad, i’d feel like crap if my friends all did well in mid-terms but i didn’t…
Still, Paulo should tone down the jerkyness a bit, though then he wouldn’t be Paulo
Me August 8, 2013, 1:36 PM EST.
something is wrong with paulo
I’ll find out!
It is a job for the detective!
Nice-Hero August 8, 2013, 1:37 PM EST.
Oh Paulo, Paulo, Paulo.. You never stop suprising the fandom with your mood swings. (pfft- )
Also, am I seriously the only one who can’t help it but be annoyed by the fact that NO ONE is waving back to Daisy? DO NOT IGNORE THE RAGA BBY
Furball August 8, 2013, 1:37 PM EST.
Yxela007 August 8, 2013, 1:38 PM EST.
WHEN IS LUCY COMING BACK.
…SHE IS COMING BACK, RIGHT?
Astrid555.1 August 8, 2013, 1:44 PM EST.
Haha Paulo’s face made me chuckle. Why is Mike so short now? What’s with Daisy?
asdf August 8, 2013, 1:49 PM EST.
Aurgh, I think my BCI ran out.>.> Whoops. I’ll make sure to scratch up the 32(?) for it later. (This is Yaschiri by the way).
Otherwise I appreciate that Abbey is still looking pleased despite Paulo’s sour attitude. And I feel bad for Paulo, as @Amber and @Me pointed out. Plus just all the bad vibes about Lucy and his insecurities and such. It’s just no good.
Also, Daisy’s “Something is wrong with Paulo” sense is tingling.
Spinda August 8, 2013, 2:01 PM EST.
Are we finally gunna see Daisy break from the ‘shining beacon of happy’? Honestly, she’s trying so hard to stay her normal cheerful self while also trying to get everyone else to not go into depression. The weight of that’s got to be wearing on her by now.
Venorik August 8, 2013, 2:02 PM EST.
So now Daisy is going to try to cheer Paulo up or something which will put strain on her and Abbey’s relationship que more drama etc. Well that’s my guess anyways.
Chrisd765 August 8, 2013, 2:11 PM EST.
Mike and Daisy look adooorable!!
Solaris August 8, 2013, 2:14 PM EST.
Can people visit Lucy now that tests are over and its been a while…
I WANNA SEE MORE LUCY!!!
Bopbop August 8, 2013, 2:34 PM EST.
@Astrid555.1: LUCY IS COMING BACK WHEN SHE IS COMING BACK, BE PATIENT WOMAN.
Now seriously, there is still a lot of fallout here. Mike still has to actually tell the others what happened, what he said and WHY (possibly mentioning Sandy and likely receiving annoyed and intelligent comments from Sue, likely including why you shouldn’t let the person with the biased view against someone completely change your view on that person). Then there would be everyone else’s reactions to it as well.
Plus, there is the new jealousy from Abbey that needs addressed too, which may be what this chapter is about because of the mention of boundaries.
Moogle August 8, 2013, 2:50 PM EST.
how come mike got smaller
tony August 8, 2013, 2:57 PM EST.
FINALLY SOME NORMAL STUFF!!
I'll Eat Yourself August 8, 2013, 2:58 PM EST.
THIS CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING
Daisy will start worrying about Paulo’s grades
So she’ll approach him and try to help him
Which’ll make Abbey get JEALOUS
And that’ll lead to a FIGHT between PAULO and ABBEY
WITH DAISY CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE
AAAAA POOR DAISY SADNESS IS TO COME
Of course, i could be wrong and/or completely crazy
Sambo August 8, 2013, 3:03 PM EST.
“Dumb nerds”? Silly Paulo with his oxymorons.
Lord Lemmy August 8, 2013, 3:25 PM EST.
As usual, Paulo is being a Jerk and nobody should feel bad for him.
Teashi August 8, 2013, 4:07 PM EST.
eagle August 8, 2013, 4:35 PM EST.
I don’t believe the words “dumb” and “nerd” can be placed immediately next to each other, Paulo.
RylanWearingABowtie August 8, 2013, 5:09 PM EST.
Probably just p***** that he (supposedly) failed the midterms, give him a break.
Great name by the way.
Thatonegu August 8, 2013, 5:12 PM EST.
yooooo uh I just wanted to say that I think the mobile version is messed up? When I went to check the updates it just showed the first to pages from the last chapter u_u
TrappedCats August 8, 2013, 5:47 PM EST.
Inferiority complex, goooo!
Trubeque August 8, 2013, 6:01 PM EST.
Fluffy August 8, 2013, 6:34 PM EST.
Hah! It’s almost like he’s channeling a bit of smart-aleck-Lucy at the end there.
I think everyone’s focusing more on their normal everyday lives (except Paulo) because that’s all they can really do to cope now. Obviously it’s been some time since Lucy left, mid-terms have come and gone… and we have no indication even NOW that anyone really knows why she left. Heck, we don’t even know if Mike told them about his trip to the hospital!
Lucy’s departure HAS impacted everyone, but they can’t put their own lives completely on hold. If they’ve been waiting for answers, my guess is that they haven’t gotten any. Why keep waiting, or try to act on something no one knows anything about? It’s frustrating as all get-out, but it’s better to do whatever you can from day to day until an opportunity arises.
Good luck to everyone here - you’ve finished a few tests, but there are always more to come!
Ryuko August 8, 2013, 6:42 PM EST.
I’m with Paulo although for different reasons because really grades don’t matter all that much in school. Letters on paper, they don’t define your worth as a human being. Although it seems that this is not what Paulo was thinking
Huala the Koala August 8, 2013, 6:46 PM EST.
He’s turning into the new Lucy~
Auroura August 8, 2013, 6:51 PM EST.
Lucy Lucy Lucy - I wish people would shut up about her and just follow the story as it is =__= Also why do so many people still want Mike to get bashed? Wasn’t his fault alone - Also life goes on.
What she did was sad but super egoistical on top of her being abusive to pretty much everyone, so I can see why they aren’t all just dwelling on it. As I said life goes on
Btw, great comic, Taeshi - I have been reading for years and still enjoying it xD
Whatever August 8, 2013, 7:28 PM EST.
Hmm. I don`t know if I like what`s coming next.
Seeing the title “Safe boundaries” and with Abbey already upset about that picture with PauloxDaisy, I`m only guessing that Daisy is going to investigate why Paulo went off in a rage, and Abbey going jealous again.
Woo August 8, 2013, 7:33 PM EST.
Paulo I swear to god you make me want to beat the **** out you.
With a bat made of marble.
That’s how much you **** me off you little shitant.
Canny August 8, 2013, 8:13 PM EST.
I have a feeling Ol Canny over here had a Paulo in their life
Rawrz August 8, 2013, 8:16 PM EST.
No, it’s just condescending crap like that really ****** me off.
Canny August 8, 2013, 8:33 PM EST.
I sense trouble in Paradise about to commence…. (I hope I’m just reading way too much into this…)
Subaru August 8, 2013, 8:40 PM EST.
It’s really funny that people are taking Daisy being concerned about Paulo as her being romantically interested in him, when it has been pointed out countless times that they are just really close friends who care about each other.
People do that for any pair of people in this comic, though… It’s really ridiculous, imo. Can nobody just be platonic?? How are y’all even seeing these dynamics that really are not there at all?? Y’all must be trying too hard.
Naoki August 8, 2013, 8:44 PM EST.
Paulo is taking everything pretty hard.
Just-A-Lurker August 8, 2013, 9:20 PM EST.
still waiting to learn about what happened to lucy
Teed August 8, 2013, 9:30 PM EST.
Mike’s still short. what is he, 5”1?
InternetFlamer August 8, 2013, 9:47 PM EST.
@internetFlamer JEBUS HES SMALER THAN RAY WILLIAM JOHNSON!!!
Captain kelo August 8, 2013, 9:59 PM EST.
Is there going to be a twist where Paulo gets the highest score on his exam?! (Probably not… ;-;)
JKRibbon August 8, 2013, 10:28 PM EST.
Is their school magic or something?
Seriously, in panel 1 the lockers are huge while the tiles are small, then in panels 2-4 the lockers are relatively normal, then they’re huge again in 5, and then the tiles grow 50 sizes in panel 7.
No wonder everyone is always so confused and angry, if the world I lived in was constantly shifting I’d be a little cranky too.
AnotherCommenter August 8, 2013, 10:34 PM EST.
You just can’t see the closest tiles from a distance they blend together.
Tacsi August 8, 2013, 10:48 PM EST.
Paulo’s expression in 6th Panel tells the story. It’s not that he wants to get bad grades, he just can’t move on. He had a moment where he was honest with himself and his world shattered.
The unfortunate thing is, they may physically be there for him, they can’t or won’t be there for him emotionally. Daisy is one of the few who can see he needs help, just because they have a brother / sister relationship
Silas August 8, 2013, 10:57 PM EST.
And you’re a whiny immature brat Paulo, go figure.
He’s lucky to have a friend like Daisy, anyone else would of cut off ties with him by this point.
DeathofInk August 8, 2013, 11:12 PM EST.
Paulo’s destined to be a hobo.
starfighter105 August 8, 2013, 11:30 PM EST.
Nerd is the new Cool, Paulo.
NoName XD August 9, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
“Dumb nerds”? Double negative, Paulo
Jacob August 9, 2013, 12:08 AM EST.
Well, they are very human animals…
I’ll admit, you do a good job at this.
13thprotector August 9, 2013, 12:11 AM EST.
Weeeelllll……… geek is the new cool. Though nerds will always be the smart ones~
Huh? August 9, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
I’m with you Paulo, listening to people prattle on and on about the questions on the test was always annoying. Far more interesting things in life to talk about than that. Besides, it’s always just a sneaky way to show off how good you are at a subject without straight-up announcing it. And written tests aren’t really any measure of your worth by real-world standards. Real-world tests are whether you can actually apply your knowledge rather than regurgitate facts, and there is never a multiple choice option.
powys August 9, 2013, 12:30 AM EST.
Paulo’s busy filling in the tsundere gap that Lucy left. Those dumb nerd bakas.
ket August 9, 2013, 12:44 AM EST.
Does anyone else notice how much Paulo’s expressions and attitude resembles Lucy’s on this page?
Could he be failing purposely so he can stay back a grade with her?
Will he end up at the hospital next
Silveryogurt August 9, 2013, 1:02 AM EST.
Fact of the matter is your knowledge is just a bunch of random facts and as you move forward in university most everything you memorize will become application based so ya….
Sethorien August 9, 2013, 1:51 AM EST.
Paulo is really confused and having a really bad time… really no good at all… poor guy.
Vainilla August 9, 2013, 1:53 AM EST.
Hm. I wonder if Paulo is starting to think his self-destructive attitude towards school isn’t as “cool” as he once thought it was…
daft_inquisitor August 9, 2013, 4:36 AM EST.
@Jacob: That’s…. that’s not what that means.
And this obnoxious attitude is why I never liked Paulo.
Dee August 9, 2013, 7:09 AM EST.
Mike is just the epitome of indifference here
V August 9, 2013, 8:05 AM EST.
I’m hoping that in the next few chapters or so, Lucy will be back. I really liked Lucy.
Angelkins August 9, 2013, 8:13 AM EST.
The angles obviously shift from the first panel to the others and on the seventh panel they’re completely outside, and previous pages have consistently shown big tiles outside.
If you’re gonna be snarky and obnoxious at least be correct about it.
Taeshi August 9, 2013, 10:32 AM EST.
We’ve just seen three chapters of characters upset that she is gone.
And in all fairness (I know she improved, I know she could be nice occasionally) she was pretty moody on a regular basis and never really let any of them except Mike get close to her.
They aren’t acting horrible at all, they’re probably just trying to get on as best as they can right now.
Sprang August 9, 2013, 11:42 AM EST.
@naoki - I completely agree - platonic friendships get overlooked a lot
Sprang August 9, 2013, 11:44 AM EST.
@Taeshi There was nothing on this page or the previous one that indicated they were actually going outside.
Looking at panel 5 again, I guess those were supposed to be trees, although it probably would’ve been easier to distinguish them from everything else if the sky wasn’t the same color as the lockers.
AnotherCommenter August 9, 2013, 3:48 PM EST.
Paulo seems to be picking up on lucy’s attitude… Im not sure if im looking at this wrong… Did any one else think that too?..
NothinMuch August 11, 2013, 11:34 PM EST.
Honestly I’m not surprised he can’t focus, I mean his emotions have been all over the place
