Comment ID #2156

No, it’s good that people are nitpicking because it makes me realise that you guys are observant so I shouldn’t take shortcuts!

i noticed sometimes I draw hands too pudgy so I make them.. with four fingers. Other times, it is five. I am going to punch myself for consistency from now on, but man I really give up when I assume it looks “okay” :( bad lil


(I wouldn’t be surprised if this error keeps arising in the next like thirty already inked pages, oh god.. BUT I WILL BE A GOOD GIRL I WILL.. in the future oh no)

That was David? Lol
Last guy, last drama. Man, teen movies are always teh same stuff: last guy, last girl, cutchi cutchi love, love is the only path for the ultimate happiness, the end.

Aww, is there something special about Mike’s last name?
And I wonder where the others are?

Comment ID #2165

Andyfox: If you mean the second to last panel, the lines are there, they just weren’t inked in! Which is how the scarf used to be shaded in previous pages :O

I did a double take for a second there, man am I a screwuuuppppp

Taeshi March 29, 2010, 7:47 AM EST.

Comment ID #2166

PFFT, you may do misses every here and there, but you are no screwup, Taeshi. This is one of my favorite comics mostly because it’s so well drawn. Also the humor.

Now, share with me, what IS the classified information? It is too... Ùh... “Encrypted” for my brains.

new character preview time is my guess as to the voting incentive, plus this chapter will probably only be about picking out the people for the play so i can see a nice long chapter about the play coming up

Hey Taeshi, the background came out pretty nicely. :)

Taeshi, you really need to work on your incentive for voting. the daisy on a daisy wuz good, but the rest have bad quality. This doesn’t mean i hate you though.

Comment ID #2183

I don’t hate you,

Would you rather some goofy incentives for some dumb webcomics toplist or actual chapter pages? The whole point of the incentive is just enough to make you curious, not any sort of compelling artwork. I think it’s a bit much that she’s even drawn original art instead of just scanning random sketches for the past two updates.

SuitCase March 29, 2010, 4:59 PM EST.

I like that she is taking time off to draw the incentives and that they moe great wallpaper! :) thank you taeshi u are the best!!!!!!!! :)

hmmm I wonder if Michael will be any good?
Naw, he’ll just suck and then we can get back to the REAL storyline, amirite???

BCB is basically summed up, in my opinion, with Push Me Away by The Light Goodnight. The lyrics go along with certain characters perfectly. o_o

Anyway, this page made me lol. I love all the expression in these. ;a;

The question is when she is singing? Sorry!!! Bb:)

Xetch: Michael Swat lol

he will be a future swat team member

I don’t hate you: what Souppy said, these doodles take like ten minutes, ten minutes I could very well be using doing more chapter pages. Sooooo.

Also sorry to Word of God on you all, but your assumptions are correct about the guy in the trenchcoat. His best friend thinks plays are for girls, after all. Time to go incognito ;)

Taeshi March 30, 2010, 1:08 AM EST.

Comment ID #2195

Taeshi, i’m not saying that they were boring or not good to look at.

I thought they looked kinda fuzzy like you were rushing a little.

And like i said about daisy on a daisy, that was crystal clear i really liked it.

So i am just saying the pics look really fuzzy compared to what you usually do.

I don't hate you March 30, 2010, 9:44 AM EST.

Comment ID #2198

Daisy on a Daisy was drawn traditionally, the others were drawn on Oekaki. That might be the reason why. Maybe they were resized by mistake? Unless you’re using the term “fuzzy” incorrectly because the linearta were done in the oekaki pencil tool so they would be very solid.

Taeshi March 30, 2010, 1:09 PM EST.

I wuz thinking michael salmon, you know since he really like salmon, and it would be a huge pun.

Y’know, I just realized from this comic that no one has said anyone else’s last name. Strange how such a small detail passed us by for these many chapters XD

Also Taeshi thank you for honering my stupidity with a response.

Andyfox March 30, 2010, 11:52 PM EST.

Comment ID #2219

Oh my god Michael Scott


Also I recall Mezmo asked about Lucy’s voice.. It’s really hard to describe because when I think of a singer I think of their normal voice.. and I can’t really picture Lucy’s normal voice for some reason, maybe because I don’t imagine her having a loud tsundere Asuka-like voice. I always imagined it to be oddly sweet like how she looks.. which makes her roughness odd. Like having Tomoyo telling people to **** off">********.

Not that she would have Tomoyo’s voice, but it’s kind of similar in a “sweet, softspoken” way. It is odd. For a character like her I mean.

There’s a lot of Spanish songs I imagine Lucy singing :( *dead lame*

Taeshi March 31, 2010, 12:25 AM EST.

Comment ID #2220

I wonder if this chapter will end with that =/ feeling...and I hope that in SOME point Mike and Lucy finally get together....plz?

Wait...have we ever heard Mike’s last name? O~O

Solario the Visored April 2, 2010, 5:12 PM EST.

Comment ID #2995

David didn’t steal McCain’s get-up. McCain dresses like Morpheus from The Matrix, with a long black coat and oval sunglasses and no hat; nothing like the light-brown trench coat, half-moon shades, and hat that David is wearing here.

Also, lol at Michael Swhat, which would make him a SWAT Kat!

Yes, the letter “S” - such a specific clue. I hate things like this :p Now i’ll be randomly thinking, “Crap, What IS Mike’s last name?!!!!”

@Ruins, possibly because they’re all really self consious. Maybe under all that fur Mike has abs of steel from the running and swimming.

Heh, imagine if someone farted in the audition! That would be funny as hell, like Chelsie Johnson on that show I can’t remember… “*ffffppppppt!* *gasps* (whisper) I totally just farted. *judges start laughing their asses off* I totally just farted!” [one of the judges] “YOU’RE IN!!!” [another judge] “I’ve heard of ripping a performance, but that’s ridiculous.”
