Kevin just now realized that, and he's how old?

I, on the other hand, have no problem with talking to other girls.

I'm just lazy as ever living hell. That and my sick twisted humor.

Anyway, me aside, another nice comic. Good jokes and Myoopi.

All of the expressions are classic, as usual.

Oh yeah, this is a good one. I think it's funny that Kevin complains he has trouble talking to girls, when the person he is complaining to is a female herself.

Nina's reaction in the last panel is hilarious by the way. Well that is, even more hilarious than the rest of this week's comic.

Great job Robin.

Good comic. Quite true too. I dunno why people have trouble talking to one another, it's not like it's that hard. Unless you live somewhere interesting it's finding stuff to do on dates that's hard.

Quite ironic that he's afraid of talking to girls and yet he has two friends who are girls. Yeah, I can see that. Jeez, the expressions and the dialog, awesome! Face reaction is priceless. I swear there needs to be a Mastercard segment or Kodak moment for those expressions!!

Yeah, this comic sure stands out as by far one of the best ones so far. Most of the panels manage to provoke a giggle or laugh.

... Also, I could probally relate, hadn't my appartment been on the 2nd floor... Razz

...it certainly does. Sad I feel for Kevin.

But yeah, the expressions are the highlight, of course. I'd love to see this become the theme for an "arc" of strips about Kevin trying to get hooked up. That'd be fun. Also, it's kind of amusing how Nina is suddenly NOT naive and clueless when Kevin wishes she was.

As much as I enjoyed the comic (that was a really hilarious, but well drawn expression of Kevin) the comic left me with several questions.

1. For the first three panels, I thought Nina was reading a book. It turned out to be rice. Was the rice pre-cooked or did Nina reheat it before feeding it to Myoopi?

2. I thought Kevin and Nina lived in a house. Based off the fact until now we know they live in a apartment. I am somewhat surprized by that fact as well.

I've always thought Kevin was in his late 20's or 30's, but now I am not so sure anymore. It's hilarious that Kevin has trouble talking to women when two of his friends are both women. But then again, is Nina human or elf?

The last panel was awesome though, such magnifcent artwork.

Hilarious comic, as per usual. Oh Kevin, I agree with you, only from a girls point of view. I, too, fear the pitfalls of idle conversation. Why can't some sparkly bishie come and whisk me away to his magic kingdom? *le sigh*

On another note, did any one else notice Myoopi's after-dinner candy poop in the last panel?

And then Nina finally confessed her undying love for Kevin, and engaged in acts of hentai love-making the likes of which Go Nagai couldn't have even thought up!

Oh Kevin, I know how you feel... I'm one of those Otaku too... exepct I'm a girl! And... I have a reasion for living with my parents (I'm disabled)... and I'm not looking for dates so I could focus on my novel...

So... never mind... I have no idea how Kevin is feeling.
