David: Hello there canine of the female persuasion! I’m going to ignore the fact that there is another member of our species that belongs to your gender and mindlessly flirt with you without any consideration of the aforementioned canine female!

Shinoka: These comics were finished way in advance and there’s about 40 or so comics pending that feature ****** in some of them.. so yes, I did get your e-mail, but I can’t do anything right now. I will definitely not use her in future comics that I’ll draw, of course, but right now everything is kind of sealed and stuff.

Poor ******, she seems to not be more than an extra in the group.
Looks that she will never be able to even call David´s attention, XDDDDDD!!!…….what a loser….

Man, I’m just noticing how cute Daisy is.
Then that whole “Hi I’m Daisy!” thing pops up in my head and the awe’s chased away by laughter. ‘Tis a sad but true thing.

Aside from that, I’m getting the feeling that Mike’s becoming more like Old Lucy and Lucy’s acting more like Old Mike. Well, more on thought process than outside appearances. They both seem to show that side to each other when interacting, but it seems like it’s becoming increasingly normal behavior Mike especially. I get that feeling when I see Lucy’s expression - she’s acting like her old self on the outside, while Mike’s showing his inner emotions in his expression.

Oh well, I suppose I’ll see how it plays out. Keep up the good work.

Lostflame: I normally use ****** as a background character or when there’s a chance to poke fun at her since she feels like a lighthearted character, similar to David. Obviously the creator wants nonadat, so it’s not hard at all for me to remove her!

I never had plans, I do apologise about you liking ****** though ;__; She’s a cute character, and I’m sure I’ll want to draw her in future, I just won’t go out of my way or something!

******’s just gonna go and find a new batch of friends that can actually appreciate her. She can get over it. There’s always more happening in the background than what happens to the main characters, afterall; just because you’re not a focal point in the story doesn’t mean you don’t live your own life or have a worthwhile existence. It just means that this story isn’t about you, and you’d have to writer your own for yourself.

I really should go to bed…it’s been…more than 24 hours…nyaahhh~ @_@

Just a query Taeshi, didn’t Tess say she wouldn’t be having the same lunch period as the rest of the gang? Can’t remember the specific comic.

*realises that by querying I have just revealed this is my third read through of this comic’s archives and that I’ve paid way too much attention in places*

@Gabriel Kaxbe, that should actually be in the comic, maybe as a non-canon story. I laughed for about 10 minutes straight :D

To Jimborb: If I remember correctly, she said she wasn’t sure how things would work out in her Senior year. And for all we know, she could just be going crazy and decided to skip class her first day, despite her making a big deal about university before. xD

****** needs some more screen time. Let her talk, for a change. She just sits there being angry without stepping up or doing anything.

If Rachel and Jessica aren’t going to forget like the rest of the world, then they shouldn’t sit at the table. Bitches…

Yes, David, you are adorable.

About as sharp as a sack of wet mice, but adorable.

Oh, and warning Rachel : getting murdered with a plastic knife is a long, painful, and messy process.

The other scarf guy gone.
“Least I grabbed some ***’” dropped from Paulo’s line at one chapter’s end.
****** not at the girl talk later in this chapter or the next.
Now ****** replaced with Paulo?

What’s going on?

Rachel in second to last panel: adorablest fast ever.

Also, I might reread the older comics just to see the eighteen panels again :3

Aw man, it’s a shame. I really liked ******.
But I guess she’s not your character after all, so it’s cool that you respect her author’s wishes ó u o

(btw, I am now wondering… is the reason her name’s always censored related to this? ô_o Also, I’m guessing you edited this page later on to remove ****** off it?)

Daisy’s bag looks kinda like a cocoon in the first panel, but I shouldn’t complain, seeing as it must be tough to do detail in this style of webcomic.
RachelxDavey FTW! Nah, they’d probably go out for about a month and get completely sick of each other…

I don’t get it. Why not just say that *k-i-z-u-n-a* transferred or something, instead of killing her off and blocking off her name and image from all newer chapters?

Comment ID #287620

I thought back in the old chapters you said Tess wouldn’t have their lunch? (Paulo’s reaction being ‘just skip class!’) im just wonderin, tbh ive reread this addicting comic like 4 times now in the past 3 years *nervous chuckling* D:
