Keep it up @Erena: I'm not going to lie. I've been searching around here for a good 'boys love' comic, and for the most part I haven't been impressed. And I'm talking about the really big ones with tons of viewers too.
But I like yours. I really do. It has real substance behind it with modest goals. It's is oozing with earnestness.
I would give advice, but that's not really my place. I want to see the comic you want to produce. All I can do is preform analysis. An from what I have seen in this comic, I am impressed. You're planning ahead and using every facet of the story to further the themes AND the plot. Most can't even do the latter. Keep updating, don't hold back!

@DaBusDriva09: Thank you SO much for your comment! I'm so happy people like silly stories like these, haha. The pacing is a bit slow compared to other stories, but I really wanted to draw something with a slice of life feel to it.

And advice is very much welcome! I'll be honest, I had originally made this comic as a complete joke and planned on making it a very short story, but I ended up getting really attached to the characters and decided I wanted to continue it. And so I thought that if I was really going to continue this, I don't want it to just be silly stuff because I'm not funny at all and I think it would get boring real quick. So since I've made that decision, I've been trying to change the direction of the story a bit and actually give it a real plot and make it a little more serious. I thought of doing it very gradually so it would seem more natural, but I have no idea how well it's going so far, haha.

Anyway, I'm glad you really like it!!! I have much more planned ahead, so hopefully this comic will just get better over time! I wish I could just draw faster so I can get to all the good parts, because this is still just the very beginning~ ^o^

@Erena: I didn't detect a tone shift at all.
Sometimes it's okay for a narrative piece to start out with a different tone from the rest of the piece. It's a way to get the audiences attention. Its perfectly fine so long as it doesn't reach the point of dishonesty.
Look at the beginning of Empty World for example. You know, that manga we both read. The prologue is very action packed compared to the rest of the story. But it exists to get the audiences attention and to add general menace to the antagonist.
In the same vein, I think a tone shift from the comedy at the start of your comic is more than forgivable, if not unnoticeable.
The Prince and I comes off as very well-thought out. Look at the main cast for example:
The protagonist is brutally honest without intention, while the Prince is completely dishonest WITH intention. That's a great set up. The third wheel, Ryota does a good job of bridging the two as "the friend" character. I like the contrast between the Prince and the Delinquent. Kou puts on a mask to get people to crowd around him, blissfully ignorant to the danger he's putting himself in from bullies. Ryota puts on a mask to scare people away as a defense mechanism from those people. And the most brilliant part of all: the protagonist is one of them. Right from the start, Makoto identifies with 'the crowd' of guys, and according to his sister he is an accidental bully. Makoto is an emissary for the ordinary guy tagging along with the two 'weirdo's who cut themselves away from the crowd.
But wait! Then you have Kou's relationship with Third-year-kun. He seems to be a mix of both Kou's and the Prince's qualities. He's smart, dorky but also beautiful and completely unself-conscience to the point of his determent. UUUUUUUUUUGHGHHGHGHG.
See what I mean. See why i like your comic. Its sent me into analysis overdrive. And that was only the chemistry of the main characters. I guess I just wanted to prove to you that this isn't just a silly story, and has real depth just like any other piece of true literature.

@DaBusDriva09: Wow, I just love your analysis so much!!!!! You're so spot on with everything, you might even understand my characters more than me! Lol xD
But really though, I'm amazed with how well you've picked up on a lot of things like everyone's personalities and flaws. It's almost as if you're reading my mind!~ Now I really have to step up my story for people like you, haha. I REALLY appreciate your comments so much.
