Yashi has the ability to be sad? Well, I guess you learn something new every day. Well, she was going to find out eventually anyways, so it’s probably best that her ‘mom’ told her. Then again, as we can see, Lily’s also quite good at breaking bad news while remaining calm.
Either way, we can all rest assured Mikes going to wake up in a coffin. Take that as you will.
Yashi’s reaction also reminds me of the clip of Rush Limbaugh after Romney’s assistant/secretary/whatever supported socialized healthcare. Republicans are funny.

I hate how people think hiding stuff is a ligit answer. Something like this ALWAYS comes out in real life too. And the pain is just as real. Now usually your pets don’t have psychological problems because you and our best friend became like a mother and father to them, but you get the point

On a side note, Mike WAS going to apologize for being an ***, so Lily did accidentally save the day there. Now Yashy knows the truth and now Mike realizes the full scope of what he’s done so he can give a real, heartfelt apology.

Comment ID #225286

I kinda knew Yashy would be heartbroken, but still, this is very sad to see her like that, with the realization that Lucy and Mike will never get together again. ._.

Now I know that the next time she sees Mike, Yashy will definitely have disdain and contempt towards him.

I wonder what’s going to happen when Yashi sees Mike again.. I hope she doesn’t do anything crazy. I feel bad for Lucy too; look at her face. She is still obviously distraught and now she has no one to cheer her up. There’s no way Yashi can continue being her happy self after hearing something like that.. D:

Comment ID #225301

Wow, even the pets are crying now? Jeeze…
Don’t know what to really say here, the page kind of speaks for itself.
Lucy, who used to be clingy about everything, is starting to grow detached and has even gone so far as to yell at Yashy, her pets who she’s openly shown compassion for when she hides it from others.
It looks like Lucy is trying to come to terms with things and while that’s always a sign of strength, it’s never easy and the pain will flare up every now and then, but at least she isn’t letting it drag her down, I hope.
It’s only game over when you give up on yourself and it’s good to see, what I hope is her still having the will to carry on. Worst thing is to see people throw themselves away, because it’s almost like watching yourself go down. Empathy, gotta love it and no matter how hard you try to throw it out, it sticks pretty hard.

Comment ID #225302

Its in that moment that a child’s world is shattered, and a new one is to be forged. What happens next can only be guessed. If you were to find out like this, would you rebel? I think Yashy might end up either rebelling or running away. I’ve known quite a few kids whom had run away from home after learning that their parents are divorcing or the like. Perhaps she might do something rash that in retrospect attempt to make the two come back together in care for the child? I’ve seen that happen too, but more often than not, it probably won’t work. Not for a while at least. Lily is there, she can be as good as a guide as any, but Yashy probably feels betrayed. Not just by Lucy and Mike, but by Lily as well.. She knew, after all…

It’s strange… I never thought of Yashy being so involved with Lucy and Mike’s relationship. I guess we never really got to see that side of… him/her? I forgot… :question:

I’m really not looking forward to Mike lovers turning into Lucy haters just because she wouldn’t hear him out when he decided to patch things up, though. Here’s hoping it won’t happen; I’m counting on you, BCB community!

I’ve never really liked Yashy—she annoys me—but her face in the last panel…is just too cute to not feel at least a little sorry for her :(
As for Lucy, it’s going to be quite a while before she regains her full strength and happiness again, but she seems to be handling it pretty well on her own. Hopefully once all their friends find out they’ll be more occupied with trying to cheer up Lucy instead of bashing on Mike, because that will only make things worse for everyone D:

Eve August 13, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.

Comment ID #225310

and then Mike made Yashy cry. :<
Really though, she must be so confused right now….. :\
Poor thing….

and Lucy too, though I’m glad to see her being strong and getting outside to do some things…
I’d still really love to see her find her way without mike…. underneath her shell she really is such a great person…. if Mike isn’t willing to see that, that’s his own problem——- but Lucy deserves to find herself and realize that all the people who “only hung out with her because of mike” actually like her for her self after-all…..

( for those of you who haven’t seen my older comments, I have no problem with mike dating Sandy. )

edit: @Lunix has a good point…. I hope Yashy doesn’t do anything rash…. ;~;

headdesk August 13, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.

Comment ID #225311

Agreed. Yashy is such an annoying character. So insensitive to peoples feeling except Lucy of course. This group was always been harassing poor mike to the point he broke. And yes it broke hearts in the process. but both yashy and lucy deserve this due to not knowing how careless they have been to Mike. Yeah I do agree mike was a little over kill on the “I hate you lucy” part. But they need to grow on this one and there will be a lot of apologizing later to be settled on both sides or move on from each other.

It was inevitable. I knew this was bound to happen ever since the halloween chapter. I’m just glad it’s finally happened. Now the real test begins: can they learn to grow up? To let go of years of uncertainty? To accept the reality? To forgive each other for when they were wrong, and find friendship again as they move towards the future?

Or will they be consumed by their own misery, anger, and mistrust, and be doomed to an unhappy, regretful life?

I honestly don’t know what to feel. I don’t feel great about anyone. Mike, Lucy, (can I be brutally honest I have *never* really liked Lily, and have always hated Yashy) everyone has a big-*** flaw preventing me from really formulating an opinion. Yeah, it’s probably way too early for an apology, but I have no tact or social awareness and say he should have said something.

First I want to settle the whole gender confusion of Yashy. Yashy is female, my argument being the fact that Chirpy always calls her “mommy”.

Now for my thoughts on the comic itself.

This comic made my heart break. I found Yashy funny and childish, and a little annoying but that’s how kids are. Her expression is natural for learning something of this proportion. I don’t think it’s anyones fault, it’s simply the course of nature. I knew people who had their parents cover up the fact that they were getting a divorce until the last minute so I can’t blame Mike or Lucy for this.

Excellent comic Taeshi
Keep it up

They are both at fault really
Lucy for being such a jerk to Mike,
And Mike for being such an *** to Lucy in the last couple chapters.
Although Lucy’s jerkiness is just a way of showing affection for her…
And Mike is understandably upset after years of abuse.
But they are both at fault for something that has gone very bad.

Yashi? Crying?
If that happens one of the following is true:
1. the galaxy is imploding
2. someone dumped 3 trucks of onion nearby
3. something really bad happened. _REALLY_

Wow, not to much Mike hate… good. I finally feel like the BCB community is accepting that everyone is at fault here. You can tell Mike regrets what he did and you can tell that Lucy is moving on, and if they can both complete their character arcs then this just might be a happy ending for all.

all the mike hate gets neutralized when you start making lucy do hateful things too, daisy-chaining the teenaged angst and bitterness from one sap to the next…

I have to say I’m appreciative of the fact that Yashy and Lily are getting a bit more screentime and attention as characters and not just ‘side-props’ to the big show. I can appreciate that they’re ‘pets’, so to speak, but it’s hard to be empathetic or feel anything at all when Yashy is a character who I almost never see and exists almost in isolation. I can feel more for Lily, even attempt to understand or see things from her perspective, but Yashy is and has been a mystery to me. And not in the way that Augustus is, somewhat intentionally so. I feel like I know so little about Yashy, other than the fact it’s a brat, that it’s impossible to try and sympathize or see it’s point of view. For me, even a character like Jordan (did I remember it right? That one with the goggles that David kidnapped) can be understood a bit more. Anyway, I suppose the main point is that Yashy’s reaction is somewhat justified, but hard to understand, as there’s just so little that we know about it or it’s personality.

Eyes Wide Open by Gotye started playing as I read this (so this is the end of the story/ eveything we had, everything we did/ is buried in dust/ and this dust is all that’s left of us). Too sad and fitting. T_T The end of such a long lasting friendship (no matter when it started going downhill) is still sad!

You can only keep up a lie for so long. It’s about time Yashy found out the truth, instead of what they always pretended. It’s unfortunate it had to come at such a cost, but it wasn’t always going to be unavoidable. I think now that Yashy knows and Lucy can fully admit this not only to herself, Lucy can finally get it together and move on to brighter days.
Stand strong girl. It’s gonna get better.

Why did it have to be this way…? ._.

Personally I DO NOT hate Mike, as much as I want to deny it, I would have undoubtedly done the same if I were in his shoes, Lucy really did not treat him well, however, what I find sad, is that when she was genuinly trying to patch things up between them, she was too late, and all this happens, but that doesn’t make it any easier for Lucy, and to the greater extent Yashy, Yashy was only just informed of all of this, AND WHAT ABOUT CHIRPY??? :question:

I admit she needed to know the truth, However; I wish Lucy would take it easy on her at the same time. She doesn’t know the whole situation of why and how it happened.
Mike is like her father (in a way), and Lucy her mom to Yashy. So of course she’s gonna cry about it, but Lucy didn’t need to explode the harsh reality at her all of the sudden when Yashy is just trying to cheer her up and all.
All I can say is, poor Yashy…

And so Yashy’s would crumbles, if only Lucy could break the news with Mike at a more mutually calm moment. Well its not always that perfect moment. Lily doesn’t look like she is shaking her head, but I know she ‘s telling Yashy that Lucy speaks the truth. A sad ending for this chapter comes soon.

Nah, I think the same way. Finally is right. Yashi’s always been an oblivious super-pain over this sticking point so I’m glad she’s finally getting smacked with it.

Also, Yashi’s head looks like a near-featureless bean. So dumb. I also kind of wish there wasn’t such strict adherence to the “all depressed characters have a shadow over their face and missing eyes” trope that’s pulled from anime. Baby steps I guess…

I used to understand Mike slightly. Just slightly. But now, after that last Yashi, I hate Mike so much. I hope Lucy has realized, in this moment, how horribly jerky Mike has been and begins to just flat out despise him, rather than feeling bad. I would, at this point. 8-) x Mad Lucy all the way.

It’s like Yashy just lost her dad. All her life, Lucy has been the mom and Mike the dad. She just learned the person who she considered a ‘father figure’ just isn’t there anymore. Now she sees a disappointed mom and Lily isn’t exactly helping. I wouldn’t be surprised if she tried to run away and Lily had to go find her.

If you listen to a rather new song in the US, ” Too Close ” by a guy named Alex Clare, it fits Lucy and Michael.

But, poor Yashy. She does always joke with Mike and Lucy, but I bet it IS heartbreaking to know you hadn’t known the truth all along. Same with Mike, how he loved Lucy and she loved him aswell, but couldn’t tell him or herself that..

Wow, poor Yahy. You know, I don’t think Lucy kept it from her in hopes of getting together with Mike. No, she kept this truth from Yashy to keep Yashy happy. Right now, Lucy is still very, well, BROKEN, and her hopes of Mike working together with her to keep Yashy happy were crushed. To Yashy, she is seeing her family fall apart and I wouldn’t be surprised if she ran to Mike and demanded answers. And, for her sake, I hope Mike will be a lease civil with her.

Finally. I was wondering how long she was gonna lead Yash’ on. I know it sounds like a bad thing to say, but honestly, even before all this drama started he was under delusions. It’s really Lucy’s fault that this ended on such a sour note. Think about it, if she would have told him a ways back that she and Mike weren’t together, it would’ve been a tense moment, sure, but it wouldn’t have been this bad.

Also, this really shows how freaking much Yash’ has taken to Mike. He’s cracked on Mike, made jokes, and all around kinda hated on him. But the total feeling of his reality crashing down like this just shows how much he actually likes him. Or, ‘liked’ him. depending on how this plays out.

Edit: *sigh* Yash’ is a she, and I’m too tired for this.

Oh Taeshi, what do you have in store for us now?

Edit: Maybe I’m reading to far into things, but Yashy has the same eye color as Lucy and Blur has the same eye colour as mike. Could it be that they sort of represent Lucy and Mike, personality wise?

I can’t feel sorry for Lucy yet. Years of abuse have a way of coming back at you. Yeah she apologized but things can’t just be fixed with a sorry, no matter how sincere.

I really shouldn’t have started reading this- I’ve read it before. I know how it goes, I hate what happens. I so hate watching Lucy going through what she’s going through, and knowing what happens next. It hurts me to the core.

Yet I keep reading.

I guess I keep hoping it’ll be different this time. Even though the story has already been written, I’m hoping something will change. I just don’t want her to go away again. Even though I’ve learned since then that she’s not gone; That she was sent away to heal.

It just makes my heart hurt.

And she’s not even real.
