Out of purely honest, non-judgmental curiosity, I wish I knew: Is Dave into pegging? Is Giz?

Progress? In a way, I guess. On a tangent, I have to admire that when people actually start knocking on doors in this universe, they are still ultimately assaulted with graphic sights. :))

I rather feel sorry for Yuki, not just for the fact that she has been spending time with another repulsive nymphomaniac that - worse than Zii - cares nothing about her other than the fact he can get pleasure from her (Zii was certainly a self-involved hedonist, but she cared enough about Yuki to want better for her). Other than that, I feel sorry for Yuki because she is basically being treated as a rebound of sorts for Gary (by him, that is); true, they had an earlier pairing, however, due to her mania, it was extremely dysfunctional and unfulfilling for Gary to say the least. Yet, she did seem to grow genuine emotional affection for him, thus has been trying to overcome her disorder (granted, in highly dubious ways), but Gary is only going to her because of the aforementioned rebound.

Nice dynamics in the art and - even though I despise him - there is some amusement from Matt's stupid expression of enjoyment (though, it reeks of smarminess, thereby enhancing my disdain). In spite of its unpleasantness, one can suppose it is okay to see Yuki in a sexual situation that isn't clouded by her being in a psychotic or hateful state.

While it is a horror franchise, it does remind me of Scream; victims know the set ups, but just cannot avoid them.

OK, I'm calling it now

we have come full circle, we're back to Gary walking in on this sort of panel (2nd). I wonder if they're going to start mirroring some of the other early strips??

Lmao. It looks like Yuki has suddenly made a lot of progress seemingly out of nowhere and she's still dead set on becoming a "good Japanese wife" for Gary so that means Gary and Yuki will get back together soon. I was foolishly hoping that Gary would not end up with Yuki but now it's looking like an inevitability.

Okay, I found this funny, but in a way, it shows it's probably a good thing that the comic is wrapping up quite soon. When a series starts making such a big thing of lampshading its own recurring jokes like this, it'll soon be (appropriately enough) heading up its own arse at a very high speed. There's nowhere else for it to go.

(Which doesn't stop superhero comics or Doctor Who[?] or whatever carrying on regardless, of course.)

Remember that Matt only agreed to have sex with Yuki because he felt sorry for her. He's enjoying this now, sure, but he does have sympathy for Yuki.

This doesn't just mirror the first strip; it mirrors any number of strips since. "Walking in on buttsex" is just one of the comic's running jokes/lazy over-used stock effects [take your pick]. The only significance here is the heavy lampshading.

Appropriately enough. *rimshot* (appropriately enough).

I can't help feeling that the "good Japanese wife" joke (which has itself shown up once or twice before) seems a tiny bit racist. But anyway, this progress isn't "suddenly out of nowhere"; it's been set up ever since the Yuki/Sonya/Gary threesome and throughout the Yuki/Matt relationship.

If nothing else, it seems a bit weird. Does anyone really talk like that? It seems sort of like saying "good black wife" or "good white wife."

Maybe a nationalist? But I'd think even they would just say "wife" normally.

I wonder if this is the start of a trend where they'll revisit all the volume bookends
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

The notion of a "good Japanese wife" (大和撫子 - note that the first two characters refer to a hypothetical Japan free of Chinese influence) is definitely a thing in Japan. Whether it's racist for a Japanese-Canadian to be so hung up on it is another question.

It could be worse. Yuki could have said "good Japanese waifu" instead.

But once again Yuki automatically assumes that she'll be able to resume her relationship with Gary without asking him how he feels about it. But unfortunately I get the feeling that Gary is still carrying a torch for Yuki anyway so that point is moot.

Not accurate. Gary called Yuki up because he had comic pages to deliver, and she asked him to bring them to Matt’s place.

If there’s any rebounding desires in the subtext I’m not seeing it.

Hmm. Bookends.

How's this for a Patreon bonus? One bookend is of Yuki pegging Matt, and the other bookend is of Peggy pegging Gary! :))
