It's a proven fact that you must bop people on the head when handed a squeaky mallet.

You'd be surprised how often that happens in real life.

Those situations always escalate. Which is why I support tough mallet control legislation.

Nina's expression in the third to last panel = awesome.

This reminds me of a discussion that happened last week/is happening again this week...good luck digging through all the thousands of forum posts to find out which one(s) I mean, as this is not at all obvious. Really.

There's always at least one frame in every single Anime News Nina that is just begging to be turned into an avatar. I'd say that's a sign of a quality webcomic.

This reminds me of something that happened at school once, only it was fly swatters and instead of 3 people it was 150 .

Just say no to squeaky mallets.

Ah, the inevitability of giving comical weapons to a group of geeks. It makes me want to buy some of these mallets and bring them to work (with a stop-watch that measures to the 100th of a second) to see just how long it actually takes before it devolves into this exact situation: puddles of beaten down goo on the floor.

Paola's constant grin scares me. It's like she can't get enough of mallet wars. In fact, I bet she planned the whole thing. Also, the way she is lying like a drug addict in the last two panels is hilarious, if slightly unnerving.

Lastly, Myoopi happily lying on top of Nina in the last panel is for some strange reason highly amusing. Ah, innocence is bliss.

I don't know if I've said this before, but... ANNina is my second favoritest webcomic ever. And it's only very, very shortly behind Something Positive.

How dare you try to take away our mallet rights.
