Author commentary

Veronica: Welcome to an installment that’s not only in color, but on time! I never would imagine such a thing like that to happen.. but hey, it did XD

Yes, it’s Pokemon-themed. I wanted to make a silly little joke related to Pokemon Diamond/Pearl considering it’s out in America and people are fangirling over it around the woooorld. I’m also stuck with it along with one of my close friends.. so yeah. You’ll understand why there’s Pokemon in the brain at the moment.

Also to clear things off, no, I am not a VG Cats-wannabe ;.; I honestly am imagining thoughts like that to pop out, especially because my characters are roleplaying as video game heroes.. also the fact that Mike is grey.. and Lucy’s blue-eyed AND a meanieface. But hey, Mike isn’t stupid! That’s a difference! *Hit*

I am so proud of this.. this is definitely not a common thing for me to admit, but I definitely tried my very best to make this look wonderful.. I properly sketched it and everything. Seriously.. in real life there are some really big errors, though, but Souppy ended up fixing them through Photoshop.. hopefully you can’t watch them! Nyarhar.

I really wish I could wear the female outfit for Diamond/Pearl. If I knew how to make clothes, I would totally do that. First time I wouldn’t be ashamed!

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

Nope, Leo and Aeris never crossed my mind. They did the Pokémon thing back when Ruby and Sapphire were the the latest, so they had Brandon and May’s outfits. They did do Pokémon a couple of times after that, but not in the same way.

Nope. Definitely not a VG-cats wannabe. :P

Even if you DO compare it to VG Cats, This is a hell of a lot better.
I’m curious as to how this will go…

This is a far different drawing style yet I still saw VG Cats in Mike on the first panel especially.

I have to admit, VG cats was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this… BUT NO BCB IS AMAZING AND IS NOT VG CATS WANNABE AND HAS A PLOT AND CARACTERS THAT ARE DEVELOPED AND STUFF AND AWESOMENESS. yup.

Now that people mentioned it… Mike does look a little like Leo from VG Cats… Oh well, all in all I would rather actually read the Bittersweetcandybowl comics than VG cats, it takes MONTHS for VG cats to post comics. A am attached to this comic series….. and sequental art. 8-D Also another reason why I like Bittersweet is because the fact it isn’t actually stupid in a way like what the creators of VGcats did. I do not like VGbutts. So immature. D:

I can never imagine people being a VGcats wannabe. Their series somehow doesn’t “comfort” me D:

Keep up the whonderful comics. I enjoy them.

Oh my gosh, they look so adorable as Pokemon trainers! I think they should all wear clothes more often, it gives them a lot more character (and they’re adorable ><).

Thank you for making the sincere attempt to speak about this on . I feel very strong about it and would like to read more. If it’s OK, as you achieve extra extensive wisdom, may you mind including extra articles similar to this one with additional info? It will be extraordinarily useful and helpful for me and my friends.

Yay, it’s pokemon themed! Lol sarcasm. XD When I first saw this, I immediately thought it was a guest comic you did for VGCats. XD Apparently, I was wrong, but you can see where I got that idea. XD SO MANY EMOTICONS OMG. :P
