Man, it’s been so long since we’ve seen them… converse this way. I’m shocked at how fast Mike is warming back up to Lucy. I bet he missed the hell out of her all this time…ugh, it’s sick…What a shame, too. He acted like a dick to her all this time but secretly he always wanted things to be normal for the two of them again.

Er, that’s what I’m interpreting, anyway. I could be wrong.

Is Sandy calling? I bet she is, but we can’t disclose the possibility that it might be someone else. Or it’s a text, not a phone call. Or Mike hears it buzzing and yet he’s not going answer it. :O

Guess Mike is somewhat admitting he felt lonely all this time. I know how that feels, most of my games are single player only. ;_; Haven’t had any friends come over frequently for years.

Mike can’t just ignore the phone… it doesn’t want to be cruel to Sandy. This friendship is almost renewed though! OH THE SUSPENSE! Furious Abbey

Stuff just got /real/. I love how the friendship is starting to heal. But then there’s that text… undoubtedly from Sandy.

I hope that he won’t notice it (unlikely, that looked noticeable) or that they’ll be cool with it, somehow.

But this is meant to jerk my emotions around so I have a feeling things are going to take a turn for the worse. ;__;

B) He’s having a blast with Lucy even though he’s been a douche to her for who knows how long so far

Well we know this won’t end with these two being mature about whatever Sandy has to say. Mike will either revert to anger and shun Lucy, or end up depressed and shun Lucy. I still remember Taeshi saying this chapter would be an awful ride, so there isn’t much doubt of what will happen next.

On the other hand, there’s a slight chance of my guess still coming true. Sandy breaks up with Mike due to pressure from her mother, causing Mike to sink deeper into depression. If that were the case and Lucy attempted to help, Mike would either refuse or lash out at her. Not physically of course. :P

Biblioholic November 11, 2011, 3:12 AM EST.

Comment ID #189578

If find the chances that Sandy says anything about Lucy to mike minimal. The chances that mike mentions Lucy is slightly larger. It is more likly that he will simply spend way to much time on the phone because people can’t seem to understand that there is no polite way to say you don’t wan’t to talk to someone and just get off the phone. I would like to think that he doesn’t ignore the phone. If Lucy is to be his FREIND then talking to he girlfreind while his freind is in the room should be no problem. However, it will be a problem. The big point of the comic directly before now was his stalwart choice of Sancy over Lucy. Now it will be about his inability to choose or else this chapter will accomplish nothing.

I wouldn’t call Sandy a worthless piece of crap character. She doesn’t have a lot of depth as of yet and she seems a little too ideal, but she’s not a horrible character.

Lucy’s done some pretty mean things to Mike and others so I don’t see how she’s 400% better than Sandy. I prefer Lucy, but I don’t hate Sandy with all my heart.

Although her hair creeps me out just a bit. For some reason, Tess’ hair was fine to me, but Sandy’s hair really freaks me out. I don’t even know why.

Anyways, I think it’d be better if you refrained from calling any character here a worthless piece of crap. It isn’t nice to Taeshi at all. That’s actually very insulting to her; to call her work something like that.

It’s fine if you don’t like Sandy, but don’t call her a horrible character just because you’re a LucyxMike fan.

This is one of the most exciting moments for me reading this comic. I just hope it’s not going to end the way I think it’s going to end… Because I don’t think the relationship between Mike and Lucy is going to be fixed just like that. I mean, I believe they’ve got some talking to do! You can’t avoid your problems/feelings by playing videogames… But at least it’s a good start.

I have the feeling that Sandy is gonna cause Mike to completely ignore Lucy, until she gets sick of it and just leaves. Maybe Mike won’t even notice she left until he’s off the phone again. But I hope it won’t be as bad as that (or worse!)

Plus, I agree that Sandy is not a ‘crap’ character. Sure, she seems very perfect, but we haven’t really met her, yet. To Mike she is perfect too. But I’ve learned from the long-distance relationships I had, is that people can be so different in real life… (not talking about the freaks or perverts here). So maybe she won’t be as perfect when they first meet after several years.

Mike’s defenses broke down.

Lucy acts a little better for a little time (except for the thing about throwing controllers at his head, damn she can’t control it), and Mike’s already nice again.

I don’t see how even a phone call from Sandy right now will ruin this.
After this bonding moment, at least, I doubt Mike will go back to being hard on Lucy - My theory is that he gets a little down after hanging up and they go back to working in silence.
I certainly hope it doesn’t end in hostility…

It could be a call… or it could be a text message… who knows?… I definitely like panel 6. It definitely shows the awkwardness of the situation. Lucy was the only reason he played games and had so much fun doing so… so I guess that thought struck a chord. Panel 7 and 8 really shows how confused and conflicted Mike is right now….

I honestly hope that he does what is best for himself, Lucy and Sandy… He’s clinging on to this childhood dream and hasn’t even had face to face interaction with Sandy in so long… He hardly knows her (even if he talks for an hour a day or so with her, its nothing compared to the amount of time he has spent with Lucy… He knows Lucy’s persona like the back of his hand… )

It’s gonna be angsty, painful, confusing and conflicting and lots of wondering which way is the ‘right’ way… I reckon there will be lots of swinging back and forth and I truly hope Mike sticks with Lucy… Breaking up as nicely as possible with Sandy and facing the facts together… Sandy seems to sweet to cold shoulder… I sense so much angst and pain for all 3…

Gee, Lucy, I gotta give ya more credit. I gotta turn down a notch my jaded skepticism, it’s proving to be somewhat unrealistic.

It seems already apparent that things will turn for the ungainly, like some cosmic conspiracy or mad joke, but we must count this as some note worthy success! This whole scene is filling me with poignant delight!
Lucy sure knows as heck how to get through Mike’s coy but seemingly stonewall defence, which he fashioned entirely in the scheme of douche stone masonry.

I’m a couple-agnostic, and not particularly keen on MikeXLucy, but dagnamnit! This scene is very lopsided. Let it be platonic love! because as far as I can tell that’s no fleeting puppy love (or kitty love ;P). Nor are they in the whimsical state of being ‘in love’. For how can it be? They’ve just been through the wars! They have something much deeper, one that goes far back… What they have between them is that divisible line that marks and joins two opposite halves of a brain. But I’ve heard of brains denying itself. Like mine (uncontrollably drools like a dunce).

Anyway the phone is ringing… and it’ll sure be anti-climatic (and possibly funny) if it’s not you know who. atleast not yet. hehe

I’d be -amazed- if it wasn’t Sandy on the phone, and for this to be a false alarm to keep us all wetting ourselves with drama until Monday… XD

The most likely thing (although there’s a pretty good chance of it being subverted) would be for Mike to answer and it end up being Sandy, and then either A) He turns into an ******* again D: , or B) the power of Video Games allows him to play with Lucy -and- talk to his beloved Sandy. :love:

I’ma go ahead and leave this theory here, but what if Mike checked the phone, saw that it was Sandy…… but decided to let it ring and play another round with Lucy? That could lead to some -epic- drama, possibly even more than Jerk Mike returning… ;)

Sandy X Lucy? Seriously? Is everyone in this fandom capable of being matched up together? Aren’t there -enough- pairings, just within base material? :/

@Blast_the_Hedgehog: The current page (for Friday) was uploaded about two or three hours early last night. The last panel dialogue should contain “Another round?”
If you don’t see that, try Ctrl + F5, or try this link. If you do, then you should know that that’s the Friday page, uploaded early. =)

Answering your question on the previous page, about the “hippie looking cat” D:. Yes, he was last seen in “Return,” and that’s when he talked to Lucy and gave her his advice/warning.
Something that’s picked my curiosity; are you and “Minty” the same person, just a short form?

I think it’s more fun to think of that vibrating sound, not as a phone call from Sandy, but as an *ahem* “toy” Mike has on his bed. Because Mike is secretly gay.

Nope. I’m not related to Minty. MintyLimeGreen is my GameFAQs name. I like the colour green. Therefore I am 3 different greens. :P

Minty is no relation.

Edit: Also I meant did he ever show up after Return. I’m fairly certain that’s the chapter he tells Lucy he’ll be there for her somehow when Mike abandons her.

Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 7:43 PM EST.

Comment ID #189719

The phone call seems so ominous that it brings to mind something I’ve been mulling over for a while now: is Sandy is going to die? She is set up almost like a Mary-Sue. (Seriously. She’s the “perfect” girl with a “cutsie” speech impediment. She’s -more- beautiful than the beautiful female lead. The male lead is madly in love with her. She never does anything wrong. Her parents are rich and she’s a model. Etc..) And frankly, everything I’ve read so far suggests that Taeshi is too good of a writer to have a Mary-Sue character. So! That leaves us with some future badstuff involving Sandy. The two options that come most readily to mind are a fall from grace (made more poignant by her previous goodness) or a tragic end (the classic “death of a mockingbird.”) A tragic end would be more interesting, given the way it would affect the characters. So… yeah. It’ll be interesting to see how everything plays out. :O

Wait it IS a speech impediment? I always assumed she was just saying his name like that on purpose.

Also, I love your post. I can see that happening.

Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 7:48 PM EST.

Comment ID #189722

@ Minty

Now that you say that, I’m not sure! lol It could be intentional. But I assumed it wasn’t because she started doing it when she was so young. I just don’t picture “being cutesy” as being at the forefront of an early elementary school child’s mind.

I can see this playing out two ways:

Sooner ending:
Taeshi has been dropping hints that Lucy might kill herself for quite a while now. She drove the point home recently in the scene at the library (my best guess: just to make sure no one missed the more subtle groundwork she laid earlier). With that in mind, this phone call (or some future event) could drive a wedge between Lucy and Mike again. Lucy, feeling alone and ostracized with the comment about her “uselessness” still fresh in her mind, takes her own life. Mike is left reeling. He is angry. He feels responsible. His friends blame him. He turns to Sandy. Sandy (fall from grace moment) responds by turning on Lucy. (Remember, we aren’t privy to the conversations they’ve been having. We don’t know how Sandy feels about Lucy at this point.) Mike is devastated. In his final coming of age epiphany (at least, for our story) he realizes that he has been making up stories about himself and the people around him (remember what he said at the Christmas Party and what he said to Abby when we found out about Abby’s mom). He resolves to listen and see people for who they are rather than for who he finds it convenient for them to be.

Later ending:
Sandy is killed. (In an auto accident or an airplane crash, maybe?) Since she was perfect and died before having the chance to ever become human, so she becomes a symbol. She is the symbol for all that was good and beautiful and wonderful in Mike’s life. He falls into a deep depression. Many chapters follow.

Gonna reply to your first comment, because before I finished this one you posted another one! (I had some trouble with the member thing)
Imagine a mixture of both; Sandy meets Mike, revealing “sins” that she committed while they were in there official relationship. Then Mike starts to question whether he really likes her over Lucy, just when Sandy gets run over in a way that’s tied ironically to her love for Mike, and then Mike is left wondering WTF? (just like anyone who reads this :/)

I think Lucy just wants their friendship back and for mike not to hate her. I don’t think she’s really looking for love from him even though she loves him. It’s going to get really awkward and frustrating really quick for Mike and Lucy… I can feel it, not even video games can stop their drama!

Comment ID #189728


Mike doesn’t seem very happy at all lately. Not saying it’s because of Sandy, but he’s pretty unhappy and grumpy lately. I don’t think Lucy is trying to hook up with Mike at this point either. I think she’s just trying to mend their broken friendship.

Somehow I don’t think that Mike even notices the phone buzzing away since he seems to be caught up in the moment (which will lead to an angry outburst at Lucy when he realized he missed his Sandy call of the day).

I’m curious how this moment is going to affect the play that they were given leads for by Sue…

@MiscKitty, it would be interesting to the story if Sandy dies… but it would be so sad. And it would mean that MikexLucy could become a reality after somehow coping with the extreme angst and depression that Mike would be faced with. If that happens, Lucy would be definitely there the whole way through it trying to console mike.

Lucy killing herself would be even worse than Sandy dying tho imo… Not only will everyone blame Mike… But Mike would believe them as well since there was nothing he could do about it. He is but one person with one heart and to have so much chaos and disappointment to follow him his whole life… And then the story would jump to an epilogue, 3 years into the future or something where Mike is doing like some astrophysics degree or something while sandy continues her career and they try to make things work between them… and there would be no more BCB…

Uh oh. We see where this is going. And their friendship was regrowing. It was resisted at first. Them fighting is sure the worst. Even so, maybe something new will happen so long overdue. A relationship rebirth potential is something worth a lot to internally hope for, if nothing more. Sandy, accidentally, has done a lot to hurt Lucy, which means things are the same. Sandy just feels wrong to blame.

I hope you’ve struck a chord, lest you soon be ignored.

I knew this happened too easily. I don’t blame Sandy at all, but the effect she has on Mike’s behavior towards Lucy is most unfavorable.

The comic’s humor says it won’t be Sandy. But considering how dramatic this chapter is rumored to be, it probably will be her and Mike will remember why he left Lucy alone in the first place. He likes Sandy better and wants her to be the only girl in his life.

I’m crouched with anticipation of Monday’s page.

I just noticed how amazing the art is in this page. The sixth panel with the shading is just stunning. Before Taeshi would always mention a facial expression or an art related style that, despite any changes, she could not be satisfied with. Looking at this page I’m blown away. The slightest change in the thickness or curve in the eyebrows, the ‘transparent shading’ of the glass’s, the realistic bed covers, even the subtle change from carpet to wall in the background make your devotion to make the best you can indisputable (not that it is, I hope) It looks like you’ve come a long way from those trees in the background in “Hot Pursuit.” I still prefer this style best though:

I forsee Mike being a jerk to Lucy again after answering the phone. They will then fight and she will leave. Later Mike will recall how much fun they were having and begin to feel bad and start to think things through.

Bet Mike won’t answer the phone over palying some vidja games with Lucy. Which will make him have one upset Sandy. I sure do like seeing them getting along though. Especially without Lucy belittling Mike at every chance like she did before. That’s the one reason I enjoyed them being apart.

So it’s now Mike’s turn to be moody? Apparently many have treated him worse than the other way around. Everyone sides with Lucy. And did anyone notice that we never saw Mike’s side?

Least he is acting more like he was at the beginning of the comic, but here comes Sandy. But still, kind of amazing how much a jerk he is acting to his friends because of a girl. She may be pretty, but no one is worth throwing your friends and family away.

Naw, spicybleachedhead, Mike doesn’t quite fit the typical tsundere mold. He’s not one dimensional enough. hahaha
He’s just being inwardly torn and confused from being indecisive about his conflicting feelings for two girls. Remove Sandy from the equation, doubtless, Mike won’t behave this way towards Lucy. So it’s not an exact role reversal as you might imagine. Not to say Lucy is one dimensional of course, as she has indeed grown and developed as a character in quite a significant extent.

Them doing friend stuff after so long is pretty heartwarming. Having a favorite couple is nice and all, but I’m just happy the two might be reconciling. Mike smiled more when they hung out, similar to Lucy. They really aren’t a couple to split up if you can avoid it. Though people are always calling someone out about something, there is a reason they’ve been close all these years. The depth of their relationship is far more than what you can decide in a moment. The “love and disaffection” ad may be skewing people’s notice of this. News flash: The provider of disaffection has been primarily Mike for a bit now. Try reading the comic. Ask questions if necessary. We have a forum here, even if I hardly ever go to it. Taeshi and Suitcase, none of this is your fault. I used to be an active forumite on GameFAQs. I’m just not…into forums now.

Long statement was long.

For those watching, look! A rhyme! Not trying very hard this time. Similar to one’s odd yawn, I think I’m tired, so I’m gone.

The comic book selling animations have a notable theme. Mike is happy to be with Sandy, but he apparently hurts everyone in his bid for her. Knocked down Abbey and worried Daisy over it, ended David’s play, reduced Lucy to tears and made Paulo angry about it, then he got to Sandy. He didn’t look twice doing it either. Almost feels like a simplified summary of how he has taken to behaving, with a notably higher slapstick element in Abbey’s case.

What should happen:

Mike leaves the room for something.

Phone rings

Lucy checks phone.

Mike comes back and arsks what phone said.

Lucks says that Sandy Was coming over but now can’t.

Mike is like FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU for the next 22 chapters.

Or mike is like **** it and brakes up with Sandy.

Leave it to Sandy to ruin the moment.. I reallyreally want to kill her sometimes. I mean, just cuz Mike is with her there’s no reason to be such a dick to Lucy! Furious Abbey I guess I shouldn’t blame Sandy because she has no clue what’s going on but I totally have a Yashi view when it comes to interefering in their relationship. If Mike lashes out to Lucy just because Sandy called I’m going to have to burn an effigy of him and Sandy. Mad Lucy

Watch it be the pizza man calling in to tell them he’s gonna be late. XD I really love it when something like this happens, when the most probable thing is very obvious (Sandy calling) because of all the clues and atmosphere, but then the author/ artist can just put in something completely out of place just to make a joke out of logic. It makes the next page all the more compelling.
