EVERY good manga has a beach/swimsuit chapter. Annie should be devastating ... but I also wanna see me some Kaz-Kat action!

Okay, I'm definitely calling it now: Annie takes the Coyote Tooth with her and someone inadvertently cuts the sea (whatever that means).

This is going to be interesting. I hope sea monsters don't attack.

Coconuts do not grow in the north Atlantic, nor in the Mediterranean (not naturally, anyway). They must be going to North Africa, or to the Caribbeans. We leave poor Jeanne once more in the dark, dank Annan waters. No wonder she's pissed!

23 Jul 2014 | 12:21 AM

I was wondering how you would get them to the sea.

23 Jul 2014 | 12:27 AM

Wait, is this actually happening? Are we actually leaving the court and forest? Or is this another hologram session or all imagined scenery? If the foremost is true, that would be the first time since... ever. Since the comic ever began.

That's a big ship. I'm half expecting to discover that it has a huge swimming pool all the way down the middle for their "caretaker" to swim in so she can visit all parts of the ship.

How much money does Gunnerkrigg Court have, and how do they get it, if they can afford to send a bunch of students on a cruise?

Like the comic, but I have a nit to pick here. With cruise ships, the part where the front of an upper deck projects out from both sides is made that way so that people on the bridge can have a clear view to the back. As such, each projection doesn't extend back as shown in the comic, but is just a relatively small window-lined alcove attached to the bridge. http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/captain-greybeard/csplendor.jpg

~~The Love Boat....soon will be making another run...!!!~~ Excitment and romance on the high seas (maybe)!!

And will Annie find that special somone, or will they find her first!? Actually I have no idea but I can't wait. Of course the title of this. ch chapter has me.worried ad w

Wacky hijinks to commence. Although the title of this chapter makes me wary that Annie and Kat may spend some of the trip on opposite ends of the boat. :(

23 Jul 2014 | 9:43 AM
Melkior

If Lindsay is inviting them, does that mean she's paying? I guess she doesn't have much else to spend her pay on (I'm assuming the Court pays her). And for those who asked, the British secondary school system generally covers years 7 through 12, so including year 10 they have another three years of school unless they decide on some form of tertiary eduction after.

23 Jul 2014 | 9:58 AM

I'd like to see some summer romances pop up, assuming there are boys on this cruise. Maybe we'll find out where Annie's sexual preferences lay hidden, ey? Maybe find a few broken hearts along the way? Makes for good drama, don't ya think? Not to mention some bikini bodies in there, too! Renard must be howling back at the dorm!

23 Jul 2014 | 10:27 AM
Pangur Ban

If I'm reading this right, Lindsey is the one responsible for the cruise? And she's inviting only the girls?! Hope Annie stuck him in her bag somewhere! He'd have a blast sniffing around, the little perv!

This could go in so many different directions. We just had a short chapter so this will probably be a long one. Which means plot development. I'm still hoping for an Anthony appearance; even more so now that they will be leaving the court (unless the ocean is inside of the court).

Melkior is slightly off on the school years. UK secondary school lasts five years, numbered 7 to 11 (age 11 to 16). After that, "sixth form" actually consists of two years, i.e. 12 and 13. Attending sixth form is not compulsory (although it is now compulsory to be in *some* form of training until 18), and it is sometimes at a secondary school, sometimes in a separate college. That's why there are 7 Harry Potter books: Hogwarts is a secondary with integrated sixth form. So, we definitely have 2 years before "school leaving age", and probably another 2 after that.
