You know, the voting incentive should have brought a sailor moon song to my ear. Not a huge fan of the series has a few good theme songs sitting around, and all. But no I get this. I’m TRAPPED IN THE 80’s

Oh, and for those of you who are craving magical girl music try this:
Sailor moon~

But right! Actual comic! Well at least it looks like Mike is willing to put everything behind them: too bad Lucy hasn’t changed one bit. We’ll see how they get along during the next story line.

@Bribri: Thank you for that. Seriously. Thank you. The voting incentive has been ruined for me. Not only that, but now I attribute Sailor Moon with that show. Meh. Meh! MEH! I am not a happy camper LOL.

Anyways, I thought Chapter 55 had nothing to do with the play? So… maybe we won’t see?

Gabriel Kaxbe April 12, 2010, 5:01 AM EST.

Comment ID #3830

@Kaxbe Hey man don’t dis both those songs are awesome ;) though normally there’s no way that you could related the two (Save the super hero angle). It… was mostly the last panel that brought the 80’s on, sorry~

Given the Chapters called ‘Back and Forth’ It strikes me as some sort of off, and on situation. Suppose it could be about Tess, and Paulo; haven’t seen much of those lately..assuming it has a romance focus at all. Think I’ll skip on trying to guess any further, and just wait tell Friday rolls around.

@me Can’t we love them all? I came here from an advert on slightly damned a little over a week ago, spent a day reading BCB from the beginning (yes, EVERY chapter) and haven’t regretted those 24 hours for a second.

As for the comic, Lucy seems to be back to being herself and Mike looks like he might be taking over Paulo’s job as her punching bag. Oh, and Lucy’s face in panel 5 is just great!

Course she still likes him, doesn’t mean she isn’t still upset at him for hurting her feelings in the last chapter, very satisfactory to see Lucy not being emo about it anymore as well ^-^

Comment ID #4054

i dont know why, but i have this feeling this aint going to work in the end and mike and lucy are not going to do any progres, i kinda think its gonna end with lucy and Paulo being together as shown with Lucy mocking him in detention (she only mocks mike like that because she likes him).bottom point as to be progress with mike and Lucy, Sandy has to appear to solve things out with Mike and open up his possibilities with Lucy if Sandy for a reason helps Mike to finally choose Lucy… wow i should be the writter of this comic…. XD probably…

I was expecting Lucy not to accept this easily to be in the play. She is probably still expecting an opportunity with Mike for accepting this easily to be forced to do something.

Silly Lucy, go back to Paulo, he’s better ^^

@ El Zorrito

My psychic senses tell me Sandy is already “cheating” on Mike and just doesn’t have the heart to admit it. So your scenario would play out rather well, just with Sandy telling Mike to move on, rather than helping him come to a decision. And as for Lucy going on with Paulo, could work, but for all Paulo’s “playing” it still seems he’s attached himself to Tess.

More drama all around as we start up the Sandy/Mike/Lucy/Paulo/Tess free for all.

And for all you SandyXMike supporters. BLASPHEMERS!!!!!

@Kou: It’s bad luck to say “good luck” on stage. If you wish them good luck, they actually will break a leg. But if you tell them to break a leg, they’ll… get an Oscar or something, I’ounno. :B

hey there.. i just wanted to say something. Ive read the entire comic. I like it, i really do.. but i sadly think everything spiraled down after the “in the end” chapter. the comic doesnt feel the same anymore. its a giant train wreck to me now. I loved the comic, it was a great start, got me sucked in after i read “confrontation”. now after all of that its just this. its mostly just depressing now, and all the characters are not who they were anymore. i This is just my opinion, and i dont mind what others think of it, but here it is. im sorry.

Shan April 14, 2010, 12:43 AM EST.

Comment ID #4228

That’s interesting to hear, don’t be sorry! I guess the comic has gone through several changes in its little lifetime, like going from slapstick to random stories to suddenly plot-driven arcs. From Wonderland up to Another Shoulder it’s been about Lucy confessing, so maybe that’s why it’s depressing? This chapter is basically signifying the end of that though I suppose. Or at least the path to some recovery.

Nonetheless I’m sorry to hear that and I don’t really know what to do to improve or something ;.; maybe I will do more cute filler arcs in future, maybe when there’s a gap of time between storylines.

Thank you!

hay,sup ?
nice chapter… kindda cliche…
saw it coming…

… i just read the comment above me (shan),
and i think i agree with what she says…
ever since you took that brake after April fools,i’v been feeling kindda’ uneasy reading the comic…
like it’s lost track of itself somewhere along the way.
i can’t quite put my finger on it,but something feels different.

anyways it’s not all bad,art wise this chapter is a HUUUUUUUUGE improvement !
especially the first few pages !
it’s like this and “another shoulder” wasn’t even drawn by the same person !
it’s really awesome !
i remember that on “another shoulder”
i commented that it’ll take you a long time before
your skill with the wacom/photoshop improves,but you totally proved me wrong.
this one is almost as good as the last ones you did with a pencil before switching to the PC.
really,awesome work.

I love how you draw, every chapter is nice to look at. please continue on, though, this is probably my favorite story ive ever read out of my entire life.. cant get enough of it

Shan April 18, 2010, 6:31 AM EST.

Comment ID #5411

I’m not sure if this chapter being predictable is a bad thing, though. If Vero keeps throwing curveballs at you for the sake of being radical, the comic will just become confusing as characters act like they’re not supposed to just so nobody can say “I saw it coming”. There was a purpose to this chapter, obviously, and it seemed to achieve that.

I do wonder if this disillusionment is more to do with the “Lucy angst arc” than any change in style or tone, though. I felt like this one changed that up a bit, and that the coming few chapters (now that that arc is “over”) feel quite different in tone too, and are more, uh “fun”?

The thing that gets me about your criticism, Oddguy, is that I can never place what you want the comic to be. The old chapters were similarly melodramatic and fast-paced, I thought! How is the Daisy\FFCat thing not a train wreck as well? I don’t see anything that has fundamentally changed.

SuitCase April 18, 2010, 7:33 AM EST.

Comment ID #5578

the daisy/ff arc was a bit different for the comic as well. it wasnt as bad as the lucy arc for me, though. this was just a kind of big change in the story and i just felt that it was a bit too much at the time. i still enjoy the comic, yet it has that different feel to it as i continue on.

Shan April 18, 2010, 6:02 PM EST.

Comment ID #5595

Gah, not really what i tried to say, i guess. i just want to say after reading the entire comic, it seems like a huge change now, much different then what it used to be. the whole Lucy arc was alot of drama and it of course changes how i view the characters. this arc totally changed their character, developing them at a rate i couldnt handle and, how i should say, a “shipping” i didnt really expect. after all, this is just a hardcore fanboy criticizing a part that really hurt, since i absolutely love this comic.

the reason everyone thinks mike is such a huge ******* is because there was no mike x sandy love scene that justifies for him to love her - so for the reader it seems kinda like mike just doesnt love lucy cause hes a dick. I mean, everyone can relate to her being in love with mike cause we saw all those scenes there in this comic, but there really hasnt been anything shown yet that mike really loves sandy. I mean phone message stuff isnt really satisfying.
