Author commentary

Veronica: I was going to make a really energetic post considering I really like this page, but all the nagging I have received about updating - despite my consistency over the past seven months - hell OVER-consistency since I have done surprise pages on other days - has put me in a really low mood. So here’s a begrudging update. Enjoy.

Incentive is also up, I suppose. As per usual.

A preview of the upcoming BCB page.

*comes back after laughing hysterically* I can understand and sympathize why its frustrating to have people nagging you when you keeping up a consistent pace but can you really blame them? They are so captivated by your story that they are literally dangling off your finger. Though they will not say this nearly enough they do appreciate very much that you update reliably but don’t be surprised when they do crave for more pages in a shorter amount of time. Keep up with your current schedule and even the most hard core impatient people will begrudgingly feel satisfied.

I’m with Senshuro, Taeshi. Your comic is so great people treat it like it’s some sort of methamphetamine. It’s that addicting. There should be a center to deal with this particular addiction… but not recover from it. We don’t want that. We like our fix.

On THIS comic of win though… What is with you Paulo?! Where is your honour?! And what is with you David?! Why are you suddenly spanish?! And what is with you, muffin man? Why are your baked goods so delicious?

DAT A-… MAGIC. Paulo makes a surprisingly entertaining main character. I just noticed while reading this page that I haven’t missed Mike or Lucy. Yet. You know what you should do to piss people off? Make it official to only update once a week. THAT’D TEACH THOSE GREEDY WHORES. In all seriousness though, I don’t generally read other peoples’ comments, so I’m not entirely sure what’s going on aside from being badgered for an update. I did catch El Legendario up there abusing the elipses in an attempt to seem like a victim though. Got a laugh out of it, even if I don’t know what he’s talking about. Maybe I should read others’ comments more often?

[Edit] Also, I lol’d at David’s speach bubble seperating freshmen into two words. LOOK, PAULO, FRESH MEN! GO GET ‘EM.

Paulo’s forgetting the rule of thumb.

YAY! I am now satisfied that I know what the cliffhanger was.

BTW, Taeshi, I love this comic, and personally appreciate all the work you put into it. Keep it up, it’s awesome! Once the store is up, I may purchase some goodies. (And that also gives me time to save up for goodies). Assuming of course, that you will send said goodies internationally, as I doubt you live in the same country I do. Until then, though, I shall have to continue my attempts at job hunting and, of course, getting a Paypal account, or something. If all goes well, I shall donate money to you at some point in the foreseeable future.

Yours fan-tastically

Also, Paulo better not try to sleep with them if he goes on a date with any of them. Younger girls like them tend to not be as easy to sleep with as the older ones who have been around the block a few times. Also, two of them are cats which means if he did and he isn’t being safe, he really will be in trouble.

So, the betting pool stands as thus:
1/100000000000000000: that Paulo walks out of this unscathed.
1/-100: that this all blows “WAY” out of control.
1/1000000: that Tess forgives and forgets
1/10: Mike uses Paulo infidelity to send the “Femi-nazi” death squad after him.
1/5: Paulo learns a valuable life lesson and becomes a better person because of it.
1/2: Tess and Lucy “BEAT” some sense into him, and get him flying right.
1/1: Dues Ex Machina happens and somehow fixes everything

Warning, any and all bets are made free of any and all legal obligations to pay or reimburse.

Ah, freshmen. You know, I’d forgotten that the gang were sophomores now. Lol.

Oh, my God, since when does David know Spanish? o.O I swear, that guy’s personality is all over the place. Stupid, yet smart. Random, yet observant. WHAT?

I have to agree with you, Taeshi, this page is great. :) The new freshmen girls are so cute and… the bishie sparkles… *slaps self*… they really draw you in.

Also, I sense that girls 1 and 2 REALLY like Paulo, whereas girl 3’s not sure what to make of him. XD And what does Paulo’s face convey in the 3rd to last panel? He kinda looks like he’s forcing himself to go through with this. Damn you, David!

I’m sorry that people have been bugging you to update faster. I’ve seen all the comments. Try not to let it get to you too much. See, I’m one of these people who sleeps, wakes up and reads the comic at her own pace, not foaming at the mouth at 2am, going “Where’s my BCB? RAWR!”

… BUT, if you’re truly fed up with it, threaten to ban anyone who DOES do that. ;D

Apparently all new characters will always have a better fashion sense then the main (in the sense they actually HAVE fashion). Cute though.

Bit surprised at their response. “Yes sir?” Really? He’s one year older then you! ONE YEAR. I’m half surprised you can even tell he’s not in the same grade as you (up until he flat out says so anyway) Man when did Paulo get that tall? Still for the same reason I can’t really say what Paulo is doing here is wrong either (Beyond what’s previously been established)

I mean… one year? Come on. That is so not cradle robbing. They might as well be the same age.

On a random note. Darn it David be a man and hit on one of the ladies yourself.

Whoever said you don’t update enough times they must be insane. Most comics don’t even bother to update every week, never mind three times a week along with a bonus comic every day!

Your doing a great job, a better job then most people would, your art-work is great, the script is natural and interesting, and it’s great that you care about the readers so much to update thrice a week, geez :)

Also, you’d think Paulo would be a bad influence of David, not vice versa X’D Thank you for the laughs :’3

Are people really complaining about your update speed? I can’t imagine that unless they’re really just that impatient and if that’s so I think you could just ignore them, update at your normal pace and be perfectly fine. Obviously anyone complaining has never heard of VG Cats.

but they are so young dont stael their innocence!!!!!….
…but the innocence is best taken when tender and young….
… but then again they are virgins and you shouldnt take that when your little more than one…
….but a virgin(or recently unvirginised one) is best to take anothers…

Comment ID #33022

in my opinion from the expressions on their faces, the one on the left is too easy looking, making paulo feel like too much like he took advantage of her lack of experience, and the one on the right would probably leave paulo discouraged because of the effort he has to put to convince her, so far nothing to say about the middle one, but i vote paulo x the middle one, not that it’ll make much difference in the story line now

Comment ID #33791

You know, I’m not sure if I like Paulo or hate him as a character.
Personally, I don’t think “bagging as many chix in bed as possible” being an “epitome of manhood” or “stud.” I just think “manwhore” very much like any girl would get called a slut for the same thing. Yeah I hate double standards too.

Then again, I don’t think it’s wrong if both parties agree its no-attachments sort of thing. Since no one gets hurt. Emotionally.

And there I contradict myself.

Man that sounded girly, and I’d bet Paulo and David would agree.
Sorry of the random almost-rant. Love the series overall though.

Shady Kitsune June 1, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT.

Comment ID #33852

I really begin to hate david. It’s just his fault that Paulo acts that way, only because he forces him to do it. Paulo is a really nice guy, I like him because he has a “good heart”. But with David on his side he acts like a really big dumbass! I hope that Tess will help him to get over with this foolish acting, and I hope David dies a hard death, or maybe Lucy just kicks him in his face^^

Sorry for my english, it’s just too bad ;_;

It is weird. I still think he kinda looks like Augustus… Of course that’d just make Lucy even more of a wreck if Liam turned out to be someone who was trying to hurt her. She has enough trust issues as it is!

The freshmen look like Middle School girls and…oh wait…No duh,they just came out from Middle School XD Compared to Paulo,they look very young.In fact…if we just tinker around with Paulo’s design here…OMG it’s PEDOBEAR!!…Oh wow. XD

But in all seriousness,David is becoming quite the bad influence.I mean,yeah we all know he’s hilariously retarded but,Paulo is just even worse if he’s actually STILL following David’s advice. o_o

Also,as a side-note,if it was possible,maybe in the future,there’ll be a “Slap someone over the internet button”,which you could of course use on the people complaining.I mean seriously,you update all the time and people are complaining about you not updating enough?Meh,it’s most likely younger readers that don’t understand that people over 17 have a life,a job,and other things to do than draw comic pages for the rest of their lives.But nonetheless,you’re doing fine,no need to let people like that annoy you.
