Mai's FATHER is named Walter, after Walter Walzack from Brave Robots: Brave of Gold, Goldran, the ultimate rich idiot. XD He was named during the same conversation Justine was, although the major influence there is that GDG acts sort of drunk when she's suffering from lack of sleep, which lately is most of the time. ^^;

A reminder on time periods again, even though I've been making this note more than once; by YnY's continuity, the series spanned about a year and a half, and it's been a year and a half since the series ended. We regard Joey as having been fifteen at the beginning of DM, so yes, he's eighteen at this point.

Incidentally, I approve wholeheartedly of women pursuing younger men. Men have naturally shorter lifespans than women, in the United States, women are more likely to be earning more than their mates (this is true, they did a story about it in the Times once), and turnabout is fair play. XD

I wonder why Mai's father is wearing pants there... (well, actually, I think I'm just more impressed by Mai's mother now. Nice strong family genes there.)

Huh... yeah, I guess Mai kind of does, too, huh? For some reason, Joey making a living with Duel Monsters doesn't seem as good as other people making a living with Duel Monsters.

I think I've always pictured myself with a guy ten or twenty years older than myself... I donno. I'll probably lower my ideal dating range when that age group has too much white hair and wrinkles. (hmm... it probably doesn't help me that it seems like people always think I'm either in my teens or my 50's)

Um...side point of interest--where did that magazine come from? She wasn't holding it before that I could see.

The first two panels had me laughing so hard! Excellent costuming for Justine by the way--everything abotu the way she dresses speaks of a powerful presence and very status-oriented mind. Mai's shirt is also very cool--I love that! I also love the father's "No I'm not." XD Though he looks like he could use a thin moustache just to hrm, give him a bit of age.

Mai's got an answering line for everything. She's probably had some good practice anticipating her mother's reaction. She actually looks like she's enjoying herself. :D

Mai has a little table next to her door for tossing the mail on, it's just that it didn't happen to make it into any shots (and yes, that was actually what I decided as I was crafting the scene.)

:XD: I actually TRIED to give Walter some facial hair when I was designing him and it just didn't work out. He'd look too much like a butler, or one of my uncles, or Roland...

Mai's interactions with her mother got a lot less stressful the day she realized that was just how Justine IS, and she couldn't change how Justine reacted, just how she reacted to Justine. I think it's a thing a lot of adult children with crazy parents have to come to terms with.

I already love Justine.

I love Justine's temporary distraction from her rage "oh, lookit that" and then back to yelling. I adore this comic, all the characterizations and the plotlines. Bravo!

EIGHTEEN!?! Joey looks 25 and I wouldn't really be surprised if he was and just fell back a few grades. Also, why does Mai's mom have to be so... panicked? I mean Mai lives on her own, makes her own money, has her own car, and probably has her own house. I think she's okay. As far as I can tell, Joey being 18, that's not that young for Mai. Maybe she's five years older than him, but there are married couples that are ten years apart. Again, I think Mai will do just fine.

I did like the dad saying "No, I'm not." rofl.

At this point, Mai is 26, so they're actually EIGHT years apart... even though you obviously don't have a problem with that, and neither do I, there are some people who DO have a problem with it, like Mai's mom or the people who think that telling me that Mai and Joey are 8 years apart is going to stop me shipping them.

Mai's mom is basically not in touch with the real world when it comes to money; she thinks middle class is poor. She's also looking for things to find wrong with this. XD

Lol at least her husband is one that can make things more entertaining lolz. I seriously like the dad. He's funny.
