It's so annoying when work gets in the way of romanceā€¦

The addition of color is an improvement.

It's been established that the app demands that Mira take the jobs (she never rejects them). It also pre-programs her to be fully in-character leading up-to and during the job. Finally, while she accepts that it's her job, she can be annoyed by the customer (pre-programming) and their ratings afterwards. Which means she has some awareness of what she's doing throughout.

The question, then, is "how aware of Fuck Bunny is the rest of the world?" I was hoping for underground but, with our Prince Charming on the last panel thrilled to get his Fuck Bunny credit, maybe it's an open secret. This angle does kill a bit of my enjoyment because, well, he was the yang to the yin of her existence. By having a legitimate (TBD, he still comes across as a bit of a stalker) romance to bump up against her profession created some tension. A conflict, no matter how small.

"Mira, I will give you a million dollars to put down that phone right now." Has been my favorite line in this story. His ultimate reaction implies he's a sensitive, understanding fellow who respects her need to go to work (and his unawareness, I'd hoped, of what that work is).

"Damn straight you'll see me soon." Is my least favorite. It implies he didn't ask what she does for a living during the date because he already knows and he's going to order her up. Boring.
