Do people cosplay because I wanna cosplay as an irritable Alicia from Valkyria Chronicles but I believe it doesn’t like Jaaaayyyy-RPGs.

Maybe I’ll just wear my stripped shirt and wander around as a lonely taeshi durp

But yeah, this is a crazy early update because I wanted to be crazy nice. THE INCENTIVE STILL UPDATES IN LIKE THREE HOURS please vote ;___;

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

Ah! Now it’s back and no longer squashed! XD


My first thought when I saw that last panel was ‘the Pikachu and Raichu race from the first movie short!’ XD Pokemon nerd right here.

Also… I bloody knew it. Tessa is a tsundere. WHY is Paulo getting involved with tsunderes? DX It ain’t good for his health, I tell you! The two of them combined are gonna leave him peeling the remains of his face off the pavement.

Lastly, I know I’ve never mentioned this before, but I’m glad you decided to give Lucy two dangly bits of fur on her face. They make her look super cute. ^.^

Comment ID #46082

They look angry at each other in the final panel! Lucy’s “Hey, you!” might not have helped either. I wonder if they compared notes yet, or if that will wait until Paulo’s corpse is cooling.

Sadly, this is possibly the least cliff-hangery friday so far though. Which is funny, as we are still waiting to see just what is going to happen to Paulo. Just goes to show how high this arc has been.

Somehow, I can see them getting one look at Paulo and literally trampling him to itty bitty little bits…though I still think that Tess is taking her anger out on the wrong person.

And maybe it’s cause I just got done playing Mario…but I’m lovin’ ‘stache cat down at the bottom. XD

Flame-LoneWolf June 18, 2010, 1:49 AM EST.

Comment ID #46115


Also and this is irrelevant since Paulo will most likely die regardless of logic, do either Lucy or Tess really have a solid reason for being that ****** off? I believe Paulo made his feelings fairly clear to Lucy a couple chapters back and Tess has consistantly said she doesn’t want a real relationship with Paulo seeing as they’ll be seperated when she graduates. Sure he was stupid but technically he is (was?) single and is it not his right to be stupid?

(nameless) June 18, 2010, 1:57 AM EST.

Comment ID #46117

To be honest, I don’t see why is Tess so mad. I mean, I don’t blame her and I know Tess and Paulo like each other, but she turned him down at the junior dance. And besides it’s Paulo’s life and he should be able to live it consequences or not. ~ DOUBLE POST FAIL! );

Flame-LoneWolf June 18, 2010, 1:59 AM EST.

Comment ID #46120

Well, while I’m of the camp that Paulo was stupid to go around dating (and banging) other girls in the first place, it’s quite hard for him to be “cheating” when the one he’d be cheating on adamantly refuses to be in a relationship with him.

Comment ID #46206

First of all people, I highly doubt Paulo is going to get utterly mutilated. But what really bothers me is that these two have absolutely no right to get mad. Neither are in a committed relationship with Paulo. He’s free to do whatever, with no strings attatched. Sure he could have considered the outcomes, but of course he didn’t. It’s what makes the story better, afterall.

Well… as I have always said, Paulo makes the best punching ball in the comic thanks to the incredible faces he is able to make while he’s being hit (an ability I don’t think I would recommend to anyhone), so this will be fun.

I just hope they don’t involve Jasmine… I can’t believe I have turned in such a PauloxJasmine shipper because of just a couple of comics!

Comment ID #46374

hmm my guess is that each of them are ****** at Paulo for a reason Lucy because of jasmine and Tess because of Rachael and Jess. Tess is probably not misunderstanding why Lucy wants to find him she just wants to kick his *** first. if someone already posted something similar to this… i don’t honestly care.

Tess did say she knew Paulo was being used by them. I find the, “he wanted it” comment funny, (that’s funny strange not funny ‘ha ha’). Find any single guy, persued as he was, be in that situation a not ‘want it’. I think that would be hard to do. In all truth Both Jess and Rach were the more dominant force on those dates.
When Paulo gets to Jasmine and he is leading the date guess what.. they have a good time.
Sure he’s a guy reacting the way a guy would, but his heart is in the right place. Sadly guys can easily fall under the spell of pretty girls, especally if the girls know what they’re doing.
Jess and Rach both have an agenda, to mess with Tess and turn her against her friends.
When Paulo and Jasmine went out there was no agenda.
I just hope when all is said and done, friendships new and old survive.
Good luck Paulo, just remember the best defense against a punch is to not be in the way.

Comment ID #46687

I don’t think Tess is mad that Paulo slept with the two girls becuase she’s envious. She doesn’t seem to be (hurt)upset, just frustrated. I think she’s more or less concearned that Paulo would let himself be used like that. Just because she doesn’t date him anymore doesn’t mean she wants him to become a tool for other people. In other words, Tess is that big sister who kicks your *** for being irresponsible.

Lucy on the other hand, is trying to strike up some sort of relationship with Paulo and feels this is interfering.
