Miwa tries too hard sometimes...

I dunno, I just realized most comics don't do a "forced focus blur", and I use it every chapter. Don't know if it makes things more confusing or what.

is the last panel Miwa's view?

Hey Random Troll: Miwa has a bridge. Maybe you could use it as a vacation rental! Just think of the possibilities...

Sir, what is with all the hate?

Does thou not love all equally and hate mine self with utmost passion disregard thy state of being of transcendent humility?

Well... It was just a vacation travel suggestion. In case you needed a break. >^OO^<! <better than an Italian cruise ship...>

The Ritual! Some of Jim and Miwa's shared past is revealed... (of course she just happened to have a tray full of water balloons just over her bridge) RE: FFB; Most comics aren't as classy as yours. Blur on!

Temperature activated cloth. Interesting.

Miwa is a weird person, ya know? And I know weird.

Hahaha, the last panel is awesome. The simple look of inane, puerile joy on Jim's face is quickly turning to primal terror. A simian squeal will instinctively erupt as he realises he's about to receive the stinging bitchslap of a water-balloon, full in the face. Boom, headshot!

Well, this page was probably the last thing I expected, out of all the limited array of things I might have forseen following last page, although you seem to still get a kick out of naming your pages after foleys when finding other titles seems like a pain in the ass. Panel 6 is my favourite.

Also, the Foreveralone in me imagined what it'd be like to be the the Anachronist dude right now, if you were just walking in the woods, hands in your pockets, kicking leaves and wallowing in your frustration. Then you look over and see the unattainable object of your desire , who has been so cold and distant to you, running around giggling like a three year old and throwing water-balloons at some shady long-haired guy, obviously attempting to seduce him...

Then again, I'm not sure he'd really give two shits either.

Yeah well he had his fun. How about the poor bastard who had nothing, you know the town has one. Anachronist dude is already fucking someone else, he's that kind of guy.

Panel 6 was the most carefully designed one. It was a delicate design!

See! Good craftsmanship is always recognized.

Well, Panel 6 is a delicious panel .. happy Miwa is nice. :)

Besides, if she really do want to be friends with Jim, a little ireverrence everynow and then seems fitting .. Water Balloon Fight FTW. :)

Now she just needs to involve some more people in the fight to give her analytical skills a proper workout and try to work out where people will throw the balloons and then dodge all of them - Something like that might impress Jim.

Indeed! Miwa set him up with Cassie. I think he's smart enough to follow that advice, even if he's not using his brain to do his thinking!

I knew somebody made a blurb about me on TV Tropes, that must have been it!

Oddly enough I looked a while back and saw nothing. Surprised the person never told us. Guess I need to check it out.

It is a very nice article.

It's about all it can be. I never really got that website though.

The cold water changing her suit back is pretty cool.

Yeah, I liked the idea, too!

White cloth makes it a lot easier to see other things cold water can do..
