Veronica: Hey, Jasmine speaks.

I wish I could have that dress.

The last panel was infuriating to me because I redrew it like ten thousand times and it still looks so totally dumb BUT OH WELL BRO THEM’S THE BREAKS

Paulo is too much of a poor dude to be able to afford a second helmet for his lovely lady.

He also probably didn’t measure her head.

Give the guy an A for effort for someone who hasn’t gotten a license just yet!

Suit. You should just code it so that if the word “first” appears in a post while there are 10 or less comments it won’t let you post it or enforce a word minimum for the first few comments if you want to take the easy way out of avoiding first comment spam.

That might cause problems. For example, someone might want to say that Paulo should have learned his lesson on his first failed date. An automated filter would block comments that shouldn’t be blocked and admit others designed to bypass the filter.

Does anyone else find it somewhat adorable that SuitCase and Taeshi are having an argument via the comments thread?

Also, I feel for Paulo. It sucks not having a license, and having to bike… I’m 18, and I still do it.

@Mookie: Adorable? Well, that wasn’t the word that came to my mind, but to each his own…

Another good page, and once again your art is great, Taeshi. The last panel doesn’t look bad at all. I did notice that Paulo seems to have lost his fang. Is that a recent thing? I just noticed it. That, and he’s ‘naked’ for this date. Perhaps he’s going to try to go straight to the point this time around?

The Lost Carol June 4, 2010, 9:52 AM EST.

Comment ID #37361

Wish people would stop calling Paulo a Pedo and saying he’d go to jail. Heck, even if he was 18, if he is in a at least 1 state I know of that allows 4 year wiggle room on being older than the girl your dating, he’d be just fine.

I do kinda miss that flash of PauloxRachel, but this is shaping up nicely. I’d like to think that Paulo would channel the message in Cuddle Bear’s post, though - Jasmine seems more than a touch flustered by this whole thing, so I hope Paulo will be a bit nicer to her than Jessica was to him.

Incidentally, I got first post once, since I happened to be checking the page when it was updated (yay timezones). I used it for… shock! horror!… commenting on the comic.

Sigh. These young ‘uns.

however they are teenagers and this is paulo.

… Sometimes, it makes me wonder if you’ve watched Ranma 1/2. *leans forward with sparkling eyes* Have you, Taeshi-san? Have you?

Heh. XD Also, I love that last panel. It seems Paulo rides a bike REALLY fast… like when the characters in School Rumble tried to catch up to each other. X3 Gotta love it.

Jasmine is so adorable… and so nervous! I hope Paul- errr, Paulo… is nice to her… and not looking to get laid. XD

There shall be no sexy time on this date.

You can tell by the fact that Paulo is not wearing any clothes, which, while counterintuitive, means that he has no clothes to take off to indicate anything happened. Also, he’s wearing what he normally wears (i.e. nothing).

Sorry about that. Crazy TWC, they’re worse at running a website than I am.

Anyway, if you guys want more incentive fun, look up the top there. Take the survey! Well, don’t take it if you already took it in the forums—the incentive is in the topic there so you don’t have to put in a dummy response.

But please take the survey if you haven’t yet! I’m hoping there’s a ton of people that never venture into the forums or never saw the topic about it, and that being on the front page will help garner more responses.

man I have to say it was amazing watching your style improve over the course of everything, and I love how your characters have such real personalities.
ALSO YOUR STYLE. it is unique and awesome nhnhngg. the whole crosshatching/colourtone/screentone thing looks awesome too and why yes my vocab is limited at this time in the morning orz.

ANYWAY you have bagged yourself a new regular reader. I shall be watching out for new updates like burning/a hawk/a burning hawk.

Jasmine being a Siamese cat doesn’t necessarily mean she’s Asian.

Remember, Lucy herself is a Khao Manee, a cat that only existed in Thailand until recently, and yet when Taeshi imagined her human she was blonde and blue-eyed.
