The guy in the last panel, was he Jerry from the first arc of the comic? Also, if Kevin is going to get a coat, I am assuming the weather in the comic is winter like?

Where is Myoopi during this entire exchange? Great comic Robin, Nina's expression was hilarious.

I wish they would clean up the drug problem in this neighborhood.


Freaking hilarious. This week's comic was short but sweet.

Nah, this guy has darker skin.

I would like Jerry to return though. He probably won't show up unless it's at a con, but I would like it if Robin found a way for him to appear otherwise!

Is Kimidori Story a takeoff of anything? Robin's been focusing on it for a while.

KimiDori = Kimikiss?

Oh and in the last panel how the older woman talks about the drug problem in the neighborhood... Anime is more expensive than drugs and can be as addictive

I was re-reading the previous ANN comics, so I thought there might be a slight conection. As for Robin focusing on Kimidori Story, do you remember Ultimate Daisuke DX? I actually thought that was a real story as well.

Kimidori Story is a joke on common shojo elements, just like Ultimate Daisuke DX was a joke on shonen elements.

Reminds me of the guy who was a flake in Zac's Answerman column asking about how to use his Naruto powers or something to that extent.

Oh my God, that last panel really took a whack at my funny bone! Anime hyper The longer I looked at the expression on Nina's face and thought about the "on the moon" part of what she was saying, the more my laughter--and the light, bubbly sensation in my chest--grew. And, no, I don't think it was because of the shojo bubbles in the background. That has to be one of Nina's most hilarious expressions ever! Ah, I feel so good, so calm, so relaxed after that laugh. Nice. Cool

I remember that one, quite funny if I remember correctly. Makes me wonder though, do those people actually think they actual powers or they just trying to getting attention?

I think I'm going to end all my sentences with "on the moon" from now on.
