"my girlfriend is having an affair with a ninja pop star"

...You had a girlfriend? News to me :o

Great Comic as always :P

I don't get it. I may have the dumb.

God damn it, I just started reading and couldn't stop.

I'm an English teacher and kinda always wanted to go to Japan :(

I know what a Bishonin is, but this is still lost on me.

This is one of the funniest strips in a while, and I'm not entirely sure why.

I guess it could be a riff on how in manga everything bishonen characters do is considered by the characters unbearably attractive and romantic, even if it's elbowing you to the face. But that's just a guess.

I'm embarrassed to admit I understand this comic. :o

captcha - poison apple - the fairest doesn't always get the bishounen

Don't fuck with ninja pop stars. Instead of smokescreens they use massive hordes of screaming pre-teen girls to hide them until they get into position to assassinate you. The smoke won't slow you down but the wails will distract you and you'll get trapped inside the horde quickly.

This is where I learned about that middle panel.

I don't get the joke if it's anything beyond the mix of bishonens in shojo stuff-moves and the wrestling move, but I laughed, so I feel like I got it enough.

Moral of the story kids, Never fall for a Yandere wrestler. The relationship always has a Rocky start.

I'm very, very confused by what is going on here. "The people's elbow" sounds like a faux Russian's wrestling move from the 70s though.

an actual wrestling move by the rock in the 2000s... so you where some of the way there. well done.

The 'signature moves' by male characters in shoujo (as in tilting the girl's head upward by the chin) have names it seems, so the comic is making fun of that with 'people's elbow'.

*flies away

I'm glad you gave Let's Speak English a shoutout. It's actually really good.

More proof Cory is *this* close to starting his own bizarre manga.

Hey! He stole my pick-up method!

LIES!
Bishonen don't have muscles. They are super feminine guys that cry when a bara grabs them.

Wow... Two out of the three of those moves were done on me personally... and I was the girl in those situations... *slowly blushing*

Other than that, I almost had my first kiss with moves like that... Take of that as you will...

It's only the most electrifying move in all of sport's entertainment. Brought to you by the People's Champion!

Was going to say I've been on the receiving end of all 3... But that would be a lie...

Nobody's ever ki- erm, elbowed me in the face... >_>

Yes... Blushing is definitely the correct response here. -blushes-

I have been elbowed to the face... You think the nosebleed was because of the elbow, but then you realize it wasn't... ;p

Oh, I get it.

Like how ecchi has "the five knuckle shuffle".
Wait that's wrestling again.
I think.

I would absolutely read that, and I don't even read manga.

My first kiss came at the end of a Texas Cloverleaf. Are you telling me that's not normal?

Not to worry, I'm sure the right person will come along.

(God, outside the context of the comic that would be downright MEAN).

Lol. Yes... Quite.
Actually, I have a boyfriend, so I was just being weird really... XD

CrystalShadow:

Psssh. Well! I've never in all my life heard of someone being weird.

QUICK. NOBODY CHECK MY POST HISTORY.

Because...termites?

Despite last-weeks comic, thank you for the recommendation of: http://www.marycagle.com/

Because marmite.

Also, why should nobody check your post history? Afraid they'll notice you stalking me with comments? :p

CrystalShadow:

Because marmite.

Well, yes, but I was thinking more the fact that I am about 60% snark and 40% silly and that would totally be betrayed by my post history even as I feign indignance at the notion

No, why would you say something like that? What, do you think I'm going to People's Elbow you or something? >.>
