Author commentary

Veronica: Chomping-fish-Maishul delights me, he turned out so cute with his little cheeks sticking out ;.;

I remember reading a “How to make comics” book once and I read about some things that you really shouldn’t do in terms of paneling.. and whenever I look at panel twelve, I keep thinking back to that book. EACH TIME. It says that you shouldn’t make just the head of the character invade the panel.. because it’ll look like a floating head.. and I noticed that with Sandy after a while and really hate that panel now.

Agreed, but he does have a point.


For the record, I’m betting he’s drunk, not high (hence the beers).

I thought Michael would be pronounced in japanese as Maikeru (Ma-Ee-Ke-Ru).
That’s how I write my middle name in japanese (マイケル).

Sandy’s so cute…..
And now I need to hug something.

Hum… That may be, Mr. Soulfire, but it could be Mai-ko-ru, judging only from sound…
There’s no ‘ke’ sound in Michael…

Also, just noticed
Mike: “you can be amazing as well!”

Talk about modesty! =D

I was under the impression she pronounced it as Maishul because she’s:

A) Not so good at English, and perhaps Literacy in general


B) Probably read the name ‘Michael’, and thought the ‘chae’ should be pronounced ‘shu’. Of course that doesn’t explain why she continued to do it after hearing it pronounced properly many times, but, eh.
