Hope He Remembered 2018-06-21

"There's supposed to be an Earth-shattering KABOOM!!!"

I suppose this is further evidence that Hiroshi is, in fact, quite clueless. He doesn't seem to be the cruel or malicious type, so I doubt he's be setting Shawna up for hurt deliberately.

Hiroshi is, perhaps, suffering from insufficient bloodflow to the brain . . .

Yes, that is EXACTLY the appropriate expression for watching an inevitable trainwreck.
He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

You can almost see the "I'm one of the main supporting characters now, so what did I do to deserve being treated like an environmental prop?" going through Scarlet's head right now.

I'm just shocked that it is 2 years later and they are still locked in this dynamic with no progress on anyone's front. :roll:

And the soundtrack theme almost chooses itself. Shawna is a forceful take-charge type, and she's about to explode violently. What else could the music be, but a bossy nova?

On the contrary... recent discussions in the strip make it very clear that Castela's front has progressed.

Yes i would have to say with the exception of Dayla progress is being made on all fronts. The backs aint doing to bad either. However i do agree there is about to be a major meltdown of near nuclear proportions. The sad thing is that poor clueless Hiroshi is going to be held responsible for it.

On the one hand, I feel sorry for Shawna. On the other hand, I have to say, "So?" This oblivious, unwieldy, messed up love triangle has been going on for some time now, the participants should be used to the confusion, uncertainty, and distress. Until Hiroshi gets a clue, until Castela can overcome her inhibitions, until Shawna can get Machiavellian or noble enough to win or get out, this isn't going to resolve itself.

And even after a two-year time skip, they are still giggling and blushing when near each other... One would have hoped they would at least move beyond that stage...

To be honest, though, I haven't liked Shawna from the beginning, especially from that smug expression she wore just after speaking to him. I really don't want to see her get what she wants, just from her behavior.
There is no such thing as a science experiment gone wrong.

Well, they needed a foil, an antagonist of sort, without having to resort to an actual villain...

I don't think they do. This is apparently a sculpture, not a functional guitar.
