Drawing so many "..." faces is a bit of an exercise. In this case, some of these panels ended up total shit. But I like the last two!

This scene is my nod to all the tens of billions of anime heroes who absolutely refuse to realize that the girls are interested. Hey, I let this guy remain clueless for almost THREE WHOLE PAGES. That's all I can take of that particularly nauseating trope.

A story that only exists because nobody talks to anybody is a shitty story. This story is NOT like that.

This page was really irritating because that shirt of his is the only flat-fill object in the comic, and it takes as much time as the rest of the shading put together.

(As should become clear soon, Miwa knows A) Jim likes coffee and B) Jim hasn't had any yet and C) Jim hasn't had breakfast.)

Well he is a little bishie... that's a bit of fan service in itself. :)

Ha ha, a bishie with a big fucking nose... Having long hair automatically makes you bishie! Shall I put in sparkles?

Heh, cold fish? Look who's talking...

At least Jim knows that Mary has a crush on him

Aw, Jack's not so bad, I think you'll like him in a few pages.

Nah he's a likeable character, despite not seeming very sociably inclined - such as forgetting the bald girl earlier on etc. I guess it's part of the macho, no nonsense persona (I like how you described his act earlier) he's trying to build up for himself.

No need... Mary sparkles enough when she ogles him.

Sort of subtle the way you have Jim admitting his interest in Mary by exclusion... ><

Ha ha, it's only subtle for the moment.

Well, we already knew he isn't immune to her charms, his feeling the need to stop to ogle her cleavage while she was checking his pecks was proof enough.
If he had friendzoned/she's-just-a-kid-zoned her, that kind of stuff wouldn't happen.
To be honest tho, that moment was the first one where Jim seemed a bit more 'human', so to say, since he tends to be a little too much deadpan. Another moment like that is when he smiled at Mary driving the doctor away.

Does Jim's lack of mentioning Mary mean he likes her?

Err, yes, but it's not exactly like he's being coy... it's just that conversations can only move so fast.

Like the audience told you in Les and Cheer, take your time. You make great art and wonderful story. That is why I..we love you.

What the fuck is wrong with you? It's already established that Miwa is Jianguo's kid.

I have come to the conclusion that I have to read Jack's lines in the voice of Colonel Tigh/Doc Mitchell from Battlestar Galactica/Fallout New Vegas. It just feels 'right' to me.

Pretty damn close! He has a bit of twang to him, though.

Personally I see Jack as a 40-ish Tommy Lee Jones.

Which begs the question... who do the other characters sound like?...or better yet, who should do the voice acting for the NMTG animation?

Well, I can hear them, but I don't watch any TV or movies, so I don't know who sounds like them.

I still think that one chick who is sitting down right now is pretty cute.

She is! But she's really not important. This is pretty much Her Big Scene, how depressing is that!

Is Miwa's shirt only "super transparent" from the front?
