Marie still has flotsam and jetsam. They seem to be more into her than the other way around. I’m not sure if they’re actually attracted to her or they’re that dedicated to Eva’s orders. I’m sure we’ll find out soon.

Yay! Back to Paris. Not that I don't want Eisu to be busy, but let's hope the update rate goes back up a bit now.

The Terror Twins seem to be totally under under Eva's thumb, but they also give the impression of enjoying evil for its own sake. And one assumes that this is a very sophisticated club, given that they've been allowed in wearing those outfits. Mucho depillation and care how they move implied.

Anyhow, we now get a hint of Marie's not being entirely happy with her new life, which will presumably give Sandra a chance to deprogram her.

Well, good to know that Marie is putting up a front in at least one specific area of her new lifestyle. Gives hope that she's not completely lost. But I still wanna see how this has affected her school life, or if she even still goes to school (probably not)

Though why does Marie still think she's a lesbian?

She’s been told that lesbian chic would be good for her career. She thinks she can adapt for that.

Another one of these? Huh. Anyone seen any frozen Hells or flying pigs lately?

I'm pretty sure she's just bluffing. Eva probably taught her that being able to feign attraction to the same sex can be a good way to advance your career which, I guess, is hard to argue with. I mean, Eva feigned being a lesbian and it did a lot for her plans. Happening upon Marie at a particularly opportune moment certainly didn't hurt either, of course.

hahaha Loved it!

Marie, it's time to just accept being plain old hetro.

I guess that's why we'd never see Marie appear in Ma3 - she is unambiguously heterosexual. Heck, it is a surprise she is such in this comic, too. Aha.
Hopefully poor Marie can be saved from the dark side of fashion, which seems to have given her success, but not happiness; in fact, her discomfort indicates it is actively causing her further misery.

I think they're actually wearing leggings with their trademark alternating color pattern (look at the thigh and hip of the twin on the left, the black isn't just an outline). The angle sure makes it look a lot more risque, though.

I read that heavy black line as the edge of a sort of skirt-flap-thing. And the tops certainly look minimal.

But we may find out the truth next strip.

Well, this is embarrassing. I always thought one of the twins was a guy.

She doesn't. Marie decided to pretend being a lesbian in order to emulate Sandra, because she thinks Sandra is a lesbian (i.e. it's her attempt at hero worship).
