Isnt Jean also a girls' name in France
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! :)) *wipes tear* Well played, Nadine. Well played. A little subtle revenge, perhaps?

Depends how you pronounce it. If you pronounce it like pants, then it's a girls name. But the actual pronounciation in this case is Sean.

Jean Michel Jarre is not a woman but very much a man who is also one of the fathers of electronic music.

Laughed at that last panel! Nadine! Brilliant! She gets to have all the fun while Eloise can't if she wants to keep her cover as a boy. Brilliant!

Girls in suits are my fetish.

That would be fun. But at the same time Eloise looks boyish enough to pull it off.

Though i can't see how people wouldn't figure it out quickly. Especially if she has to use a lockeroom.

So, we going to tangle Alex, Marie, and Christophe up in this one?

(The way my mind works, all of this will happen and Sandra won't appear at all. Heh.)

Well, this plot is definitely heading to the school where those three are based. And Alex is their unknown target, so unless they mess up completely, he'll be involved. If he's involved, it's hard to keep Marie out of things. And Christophe hangs out with them, and is exactly the sort of hardbody that Nadine has on her "To Do" list.

But maybe they'll talk to Penelope first, and end up being led a merry dance away from the other three as she reveals hidden depths.

(Of course, things could get really Shakespearean: Christophe could find himself attracted to the new guy "Jean", and go round worrying that he's turning completely gay...)

But yes, it's unlikely that Sandra will appear in this plot thread for a while, if at all. The comic is increasingly about "people who know Sandra, a bit" rather than being about Sandra herself, most of the time.

Saw nothing mentioning this, so I'll do it.

Nadia de l'eau bleue is a reference to this anime from studio Gainax, which French name was "Nadia le secret de l'eau bleue". The main male character was a young boy named Jean (pronounced [ʒɑ̃]).

Also, I really like Nadine now. :x
