I missed this chapter. It was one of my favs. I’m glad it was redone, and in black and white.

I kinda miss the old way. I liked how it showed progression in Tae’s work and how far she has come. I beleive that little redos like this in the older stuff kinda ruins that in a way. Regardless it is still very well redone and I believe I see some more dialogue in there.

This whole chapter makes me want to hug Paulo. And I am in no way a hugger. But I would DEFINATELY hug him after this chapter.

I still say this is the funiest chapter… of anything… anywhere… of all time… in the entire universe.

Plus the intro makes me wish I could become a teatcher, so I can scare kids. XD
