The moment where Colin looks up and all the cats are around him… they’re like “TELL HIM!!!!” Another great chapter and still more surprises (and I forgot about Tory having a cold with everything that’s happened). That one day took 7 years to play out end to end but it was so worth the wait :) It’s also nice to see Tory recognize and try to better himself. I wonder if Colin was happy surprised when Tory “misspoke” about being together :PSeptember 20, 2013 at 11:16 am #1474h.chris901Participant
When Tory noted what color Colin’s underwear was, I was just like “Ok he finally get its.”September 23, 2013 at 5:10 pm #1501snowylocksParticipant
First you slap him in the face, and then you leave him hanging like that ? Poor Tory.
Really liked the scene with his mom, and always great to see Paul again.
Dunno what it is with this comic, but I adore every single character in it.
And you know what, even with the underwear thing and “do you like me”, I’m still not entirely sure he gets it.September 23, 2013 at 6:22 pm #1502pandycanesParticipant
What I really love about this comic is how it shows the relationships between Tory and the other characters, instead of just a really narrow view of only the relationship between him and Colin. I really liked his mother’s emotional breakdown, and his realization that he’s really hurting his mother. I just thought it was sweet as heck. I’m so happy that off*beat got picked up again. So happy.September 26, 2013 at 4:12 pm #1507JenLeeQuickParticipant
wonder1440: Ah yes! It’s been so long that it’s easy to forget stuff like Tory’s cold! I have to keep trying to double check myself of details like the tones of their shirts and patterns on Colin’s cats.
h.Chrisgo1: That was one of the small things I added in the 2012 version of the script!
snowylocks: I’m glad you like the scenes with side characters, as well as the main characters. I don’t think Tory would feel like a complete character without them?
pandycanes: Thank you for your continued interest and support for this story! I know it’s been such a long time coming!!October 2, 2013 at 11:00 am #1700GitonaParticipant
So it’s been quite a few years since we left off with Colin punching Tori and wondering…what’s next? I can definitely tell that there is a new vibe to the whole story. It’s not bad but it did leave me feeling a bit confused. I found Colin so awkward hehe. Tory was Tory for the most part. I don’t know. Maybe I just need to realize that both of them are feeling the ~tension~ haha I’m a little befuddled by the Gaia Project. I never really did care what it turned out to be. My focus has always been on the relationships of the characters.
I am so happy that Quick has finally been able to continue Off*Beat. The first two volumes have been sitting on a dusty shelf for many years. I almost cried when I found this site and was able to pick them up and dust them off. I look forward to the next chapter!December 8, 2013 at 1:37 am #2642mizushimoParticipant
Soooo, I guess you can’t read chapter 14 without a paid subscription? Is that how Off*Beat is going to work? Every other chapter will be restricted access?December 8, 2013 at 2:28 pm #2648Lianne SentarKeymaster
Yeah. For most Sparkler series, first chapter and current chapter are free to read (after the 1-week hold for subscribers when it’s first released, ala Crunchyroll), everything else is behind the paywall. Gauntlet and Dire Hearts are like this, too. There are a few exceptions to this:
–Tokyo Demons started as a free serial and was partially funded by a Kickstarter, so other than that 1-week hold, it’s always free to read.
-Due to technical complications of restricted streaming audio, the audio series (including Awake) are always free to stream after the 1-week hold.
The good news is the entire paywall is one unit, so you can buy a one-month subscription and it’s all-you-can-read of everything for a month…including Vol 1-2 of Off*Beat, the middle chapters of all series, the subscriber exclusives, the one-shots behind the paywall (which is where Maiden and the Fish is going in January), etc.
Sorry, I know it’s complicated!
