Veronica: hahahahah babby’s first backgrounds and statues. god this chapter was such a challenge to me and I get more embarrassed by the minute. I think next week will be more delightful, though, but yeah Sandy’s off to do more silly things with her silly little mother-driven career.

and man do those rejected models think she’s damn fine.

dotdotdot comes off as a rude person..X_x no offence; but, you just really hate mike don’t you? Heck, I’d even go as far as to say if he went with Lucy you’d hate on him because of the effects you’d see from Sandy later. Sandy’s+Mike’s love is strong; and the fact that Mike has held onto Sandy despite all the peer pressure and the fact they’re long distant says alot by itself. I’m sure Sandy has gone through more, but the point is that they’re waiting for each other; and they both hurt alot when they had to be separated-hell, they hurt now being away from one another. Most people can’t bear that or the lack of physical presence; which is why long-distance relationships fail and majority(whom see’s long distance as impractical) of people refuse to acknowledge them.
I suppose I could just ramble on because I have a personal long distance thing of my own…so I feel for them. >< Mike spontaneously combusted on Lucy because he was holding everything in for her sake; and because he didn’t know. Since she admitted to love after his combustion, it couldn’t be helped; as people said “Too little Too late”. Mike never released his frustrations on anyone in the beggining; hence why he was “the ideal guy”-always caring for others n’ wot not. Whereas Lucy was releasing all of her frustration to everyone-and especially concentrated on Mike until she realized and was able to admit that she just wanted love+attention.

Hey, now, I LIKE the girl post. Silly as it is, it at least makes me identify the gender when my inner voice reads forum posts. And having your gender revealed DOESN’T mean OH MY GOD I’M NOT ANON ANYMORE BAWW. Make the small pool of girls feel special.

I am still awed by the amount of guys to girls ratio here; I always perceived BCB as something that female readers may take more liking to, but whatever.

Actually, Taeshi’s art is moving at a pretty normal pace as far as webcomic art goes. Beside, this comic has better story then most of the webcomics I read, and that’s a rather nice change of pace to be frank.

Hey i’m a guy and I like reading BCB, and before the question comes to anyone’s minds, no i’m not gay. I have read this comic from beginning to current and can say that anyone can like this comic and if they don’t they don’t have to read it, and if they comment about some small things they dislike okay, but if they go out of their way to say they hate the whole comic then they can go to hell.
Long Live BCB!

@suitcase knew it was something you and taeshi set as a joke though odds are the girls would be fine with keeping it you should make gender posts an option in posting so that people don’t whine about not having a guy version or not being able to have it themselves meh just my rant though and for anyone confused click the show comments button and check suits post that’s about 8 posts above mine…
btw not to nitpick but shouldn’t sandy have a bust size of at least a b-cup? i say that because most of the time girls have at least some bust when they are 16 for example i know a girl whos 16 or 17 years old and has a bust that would make tsunade from naruto jealous… no shes not fat well not overly fat anyways she is larger then the average cookie cut girl but i think shes the size most girls should try for not too thin not too fat a damn near perfect balance… meh rant over

Seiya, I think if you cut out the 17-20yo male webcomic nerd part of the demographic, the site would skew female. I get the feeling most webcomics are going to be male-dominated by default. Also note there’s a lot of girls who post on the front page and never enter the forum, it’s the forum in particular that’s weirdly masculine!

Also, about the girl post thing. I believe Suitcase sets up who posts with that background… so not EVERY girl will have it and thus there’s still no clear way to know how many girls are here and how many boys.

Freaky things be happenin’ soon.

Okay….If my (Calculations) are correct, (Which they probably aren’t) this is some sort of throwback to the time when Mike received a letter from Dear Ol’ Sandy. Around…Iforgethowlong but you know what I mean. Give some time, some chapters, some drama filled moments, to the Arc where Lucy professed her love, to the very small comment Sue made about seeing her somewhere before. My guess is, this’ll will definetly tie in to Mike finding out and make a last almost pitiful attempt to see it in a different light. Why does my mind think what Sandy’s doing is very NSFW? Probably just my overly perverted mind.

No, they are those who attempted the trials Sandy is now set to face and failed. These trials are the only way to attain true glory and power, taking her “To The Top”. If she succeeds, she’ll be able to move back to Roseville with Mike with the power she’ll obtain. If she fails, she’ll be cursed into stone statue for eternity, and sent to Mike, being forced to watch him suffer and eventually end up with Lucy.

i know he sorta apologized to lucy later in “cracks in the ice” but it didnt make up for how he acted. theyve been completely honest with each other for a long time so why couldnt mike just tell her how he was starting to feel about trying to hold everything up for her sake, instead of becoming hateful towards her?

I get the feeling she’s going to end up raped by the end of this arc.

I’m jealous of these kitty things. I mean, they don’t have to shave, not that anyone HAS to. Two, they don’t have to where clothes most of the time. Three, ummm… oh well. Hmm.. Then again, washing all that fur must take while. idk. Still jealous.

Over the past two days I’ve read through every single one of these (yes, yes, I’m sad, nothing better to do, heard it all before) including the ones that didn’t really make sense (kinda like David’s birthday) and I don’t really understand this as far as this is Sandy’s job interview, and that it might lead back to a MikexSandy kinda thing, possibly through working at the same place maybe?? :S BUT I still maintain that MIKE NEEDS TO GET INTO A DECENT RELATIONSHIP WITH LUCY. SANDY’S HAD HER CHANCE, BUT FATE (or more likely Taeshi) HAS CHOSEN TO KEEP THEM APART. HE SHOULD LOOK FOR LOVE CLOSER TO HOME. AND YES, MY CAPS LOCK KEY IS BROKEN.

Hey guys, I’m new to this comic, I’ve been reading it up to this point (and reread some of my favorite parts, not mentioning which however) for the last 3 days, and I absolutely love how it can make me sad, then smile at over 9000 mph =D anyways, I figured I’d at least introduce myself as a reader of this great great comic =D

*Head desk* I knew there was a reason I stopped commenting on the front page….

I might be a MikexLucy fan but gosh darn it if Sandy isn’t adorible! But what I really want is for Lucy to realize she doesn’t need a guy in her life, she’ll be happier then.

It’s just you’re acting like spoiled, annoy brats that’s all. Wait a few pages, questions will be answered, Taeshi has never been one to leave us out in the rain. And don’t complain about the new page not being here, it’ll get done when it gets done. And meg, you can go back and edit a post so that you don’t have three repeating posts in a row. It’s common courtesy and keeps the spam levels down that’s all.

Leaving a comment: Agreed. It seems people lack patience nowadays…
Of course, some of these people are newcomers. But still. I don’t believe Taeshi needs to be rushed.

And to add something that’s been said so many times now: Sandy looks so adorable!
I know there’s so much support for MikexLucy, but I’m rooting for MikexSandy.

And thanks for the time, yet again, meg.

For you, meg, its 5am/pm but for Taeshi, maybe, its earlier so SHUT UP! Let her time to wake up!
I agree with @Leaving a comment and @5ony… Stop spamming and HAVE A LIFE!

I don’t think Meg can qualify as new :\ She’s done it before, I remember seeing it a couple weeks ago.

Also rooting MikexSandy, unless of course she ends up putting out for this job or some bs like that.

Leaving a comment is tired, hungry, and in a bad mood, she will bite if provoked, caution is advised.

Take all the time you need Taeshi, the internet will still be here tomorrow.

Why is everyone calling Sandy a Mary Sue? Her only good points are that she’s very pretty and that she’s nice. Examples of flaws- Airheaded, doesn’t do good in school, etc…

Flara July 13, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.

Comment ID #181108

People just seem to have it in for Sandy, @Flara.

I don’t get it either.

She reminds me of a girl I knew as a kid, who was also very sweet.

Comment ID #185500

@ Fruvous: It’s not that I don’t like Sandy, I just like Lucy 1 million times more. She’s pretty much me, I can relate to everything she’s going through (no real friends, finds support in pets, likes someone that would rather be with someone thousands of miles away).
