I hope your April 1st hasn't been as retarded as mine. If you've noticed any interference with my comic due to this stupid fucking worthless day, it definitely wasn't with my permission.

Today has been right shit. I really, really didn't need a day like today to come around now.

On the plus side, you use British-ey sounding phrases like "it's been right shit" and what-not, and these are always awesome. :D

Also that wasn't sarcasm, which I feel a need to note since you can't really tell on the internet! I am trying to say something positive in a levity-ish way! I AM NOT GOOD AT THESE THINGS!

Three Cats.
Two euphemistic, one real.
Two frustrated, one fleeing!

Ugh, I just dislike Miwa so thoroughly. For all those brains she could use a healthy dosage of maturity with a side order of humility. :-I

She's young and too smart.

If she's so smart, how come she doesn't have Jimpenis?

Remember, she was off on her lightning prediction by an unacceptable three seconds!* She will probably need a few extra minutes to take possession of Jim's delicate bits.

Just that random lady that came to Miwa for advice. One of Miwa's friends.

Kitten! :D

You have this life thing figured out, kitten.

You are an excellent observer of Cats indeed!

I think miwa is really gonna be in for a shock if she ever gets what she wants. Experience has shown me that possession of what I was coveting is never as rewarding as the desire for that object promised.

"He is yours. After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

Is Miwa at home or is she out visiting?
view 2nd Apr 2012, 8:16 PM edit delete reply
Miwa lives in the middle of nowhere and definitely doesn't own a cat. She's visiting.
cattservant 2nd Apr 2012, 8:28 PM edit delete reply
I suspected as much. No wonder Kitty was keeping such a close eye on her! Also an upstairs open room like that would irritate her Astrapophobia bump!

"...definitely doesn't own a cat." Way too much competition I'd say!

Of course, who does own a Cat?!

Oh yes! Happy Back to the Regular Fools Day!

Thank God for that. I had no patience for yesterday at all

And you don't have to put any work in it, as there is an endless supply of Regular Fools out there!

Before I state the following, I should note that I am not an ardent cat fan like CatServant. of course, nobody is.

LOVE :) this cat in this & The previous panel. I just enjoyed watching its play as independent action. Nice, Nice little touch. ... And then the cat reaction shots, also wonderful. Truly nice job, View.

Right, more to say. It's just that these comments deserved their own box. Like Jim, and Wendy's girlfriend. ;-)

I also loved watching the other girl joining in Miwa's "cathartic game". Hee-hee, fun.

And Miwa's final line here, "A penis would be more cathartic." Awesome. The kind of line that… No, let me sum it up thusly: "Classic."

I must also say, that I don't mind Miwa's attitude and presentation here on these pages at all :) . Back when she was helping Gretel with good advice, that was very likable. This is also very likable. She is still totally fixated on totally the wrong guy. But on this page, she is just expressing herself, and in a simple refreshing way. I think the key is that in this panel she is expressing her frustration, which OK, I will allow her; but she is not expressing it in a deconstructive way to Jim or Mary; she's not actually trying to do anything wrong. (For once ;-) ?) So I like her in these two pages -- plus side of zero. (I'm not in the Miwa hate club or the Miwa love club. Though, since she is a well-shaped girl, I do enjoy watching Miwa love.)

Heh. I like your art choice for drawing the girls in the last panel, too, View! I don't know how people in the Anime community may describe or term it, there may be some standard terms that I just don't know for that type of figure. It's perfect here. Fabulous expression for the moment.

Side note:
I let my phone take dictation for a lot of my typing. Which always means reviewing and correcting, and expecting myself to catch everything. One of my great frustrations is "Miwa", because the dictation engine has always except once heard it as something else. But one in my last comment was awesome!


And, completely coincidentally, she is foreshortened in the final panel of this page. Slap a furry pelt on her, and…

Oh, if only the original gang of commenters were still around here…
