Another character is introduced after doing a lot of thinking and revamping. Revamping on the story cycle, that is. Whereas before I'd focus the stories of the strips at random depending on the ideas I got on hand. This time around each character would be given equal amount of exposure allowing them to tell their stories and experiences on a monthly basis.
I haven't come up with a name for this character yet but he's more of the slacker type of college student whose really into all things filipino (the usual ethnic stuff and preferring to express himself in the old provincial tagalog rather than the more popular cosmopolitan, taglish [tagalog-english combo]). He's also a born romantic but not very good with the ladies, who think of him as a typical weirdo.
