Wow, flirty ex-robot! So Green-eyes is/was the robot in the bucket! Him blushing means he has human desires now.

Ah, what fools these metal coils be! Seriously, i am loving these People 2.3. We've seen P2.2....those would be fairies and forest animals who converted.

Will admit girlbot definitely has a point there. She is a cutie! Also, subtle sign to show how detailed their anatomy is by having boybot blush and sweat, both of which requires an INSANE amount of detail under the surface. for the body to be able to do.

Hey...pipes are important. All that poop has to go somewhere. You don't miss the plumber 'til the pipes are broken.

The hair might even be able to go up! Really, if they can get fresh clothes from what I presume is Kat's factory, they can get hair products too. *** Aww, it's (probably) the bot from ch. 75! "It's hard to remember" Reminds me of (the sporking of) Twilight: when someone becomes a vampire their petty human memories become dim and fuzzy, like a '90s show on an HD TV.

Oh no, did something go wrong with hi- oh crap that's Boxbot, isn't it?

One of these two is boxbot, isn't it?

Interestingly similar to Surma's, too. Still, hypothesis re bucketbot confirmed.

Are there memory problems with the transfer to a new body, or is that simply the difference in ROM and RAM between less-reliable squishy brains and efficient CPUs with less data corruption?

You can even make it go up.

That is a confirmation on their identities and a second can of worm : kat gave them a mind, a body that grows and adapt, sensations... but reproduction is another , really complex matter, essential for them being a people as opposed to just Kat's people if they depend solely on chip her process. Its absence would be her version of that the eyes of the shadow people

"Yes. Yes, it is. Very." That would have been the right answer.

This is reverse transhumanism and it's equally creepy. Not humans attempting to become robots but robots attempting to become human.

Its that robot from before :D

He may have a thing for red heads after his last trip to the ocean.

Looks like Orphannie is looking to work with some pipe too...? Many people will reference Elder Scrolls regarding Bot-body design, so I won't any further than the reference I just referenced.

Where did she read that pink eyes were considered cute?

They were all once sexless Seraph robots, right? So this sexy female thing is probably sorta weird.

The last page where they gathering chips for Kat is no of the most beautiful scenes I’ve ever read in this story. Thank you for that, Tom.

3 Dec 2021 | 6:17 AM

It's pipe bot! Who now has to deal with having a libido, with a face that shows emotions and betrays thoughts! Such fun, I wonder if he will return to pipework or not?

3 Dec 2021 | 6:20 AM

Yes, it is cute. :3

Getting overwhelmed with all the new senses I see. Yeah Being Organic/mostly organic can do that.

I’m still hesitant about this “haircut” business. I think it could be a plot.

Tom- ????

3 Dec 2021 | 7:18 AM
Darwin Smith

Must... resist... obvious... joke... In all seriousness, though, is he flustered and that's why he's having trouble, or is it because flesh-thinking is crowding out robot thinking?

3 Dec 2021 | 7:21 AM
Boh No

I SWEAR if this chapter ends w/ Tom saying 'Thank you for reading this comic about Robots getting haircuts'...

3 Dec 2021 | 7:26 AM

That blush is so cute! More seriously, do New People need birth control? LibraryNewPerson is clearly itching to find out

3 Dec 2021 | 7:31 AM

I think a comment from the other page was correct; this is our green eyed bucket friend!

I'm super into this chapter so far, I'm already really invested in learning more about these two and the day-to-day life of robots who are now people. Both the good, and the bad, as has been alluded to earlier on.

it is time to go in the wilderness to find a barber

Aw, cute! Although, the memory loss is rather disturbing...

Don’t worry, mate. You’ll be doing more piping in no time.

Ah, so that's the same guy we saw in that one chapter.

3 Dec 2021 | 9:31 AM

That's... incredibly sad. Memories make people who they are... how much of their memories from when they were ordinary robots were lost?

3 Dec 2021 | 9:58 AM

What is Box Bot I wonder?

3 Dec 2021 | 10:56 AM

No way, you can cut stuff off of this body? Gimme those scissors I've gotta try this!

This is giving me so many thoughts and feelings as a trans person. Sci-fi tends to do that.

Aw ... i wish this was whistle robot from the Power Station. It would be cool if it was true!

3 Dec 2021 | 12:20 PM
Bear

Oh Kat, seriously, did you not think it would be traumatic and crazy-making enough already to be in a completely alien body with vastly different sensorium, inputs, and abilities? These kids were not ready to deal with sex urges yet. They needed years to learn about their bodies, about personal relationships, about managing their own actions in the face of conflicting desires, and about dealing with emotional pain first. Seriously, even humans get eight to fourteen years of basics before we start dealing with sexual desire on any serious basis. And even then, a lot of us mess it up and wind up hurting each other. Or getting hurt, or usually both.

"I worked in the library, therefore I understand how sexy works" - Ah, yes, of course. The library, I should have known. Also, mostly not comfortable with "fanservice" feels on panel 4... but I suspect that is less the comic being off and more just me. I dunno- it feels weird going for "We stuck these robot brains in a pretty girls body, therefore the robot brain must be flirty now". ...Potentially though that is part of the point- the mind is the plaything of the body or those ideas were already there or something like that?

3 Dec 2021 | 12:42 PM
Scott Crandall

"Something to do with pipes". Well that certainly narrows it down.

3 Dec 2021 | 12:47 PM
Is that you...

...boxbot?

Robots (or former robots) flirting....

Anyone else really hoping Boxbot is going to get a body they'll be happy with?

3 Dec 2021 | 6:21 PM
Cattya

Y'know, given the work Andrew was doing with Tony when they first started working w/ Kat- y'know, and I quote, "boy stuff"- I don't think they necessarily have to rely on Kat to be able to reproduce if that work was advanced enough. Though it could have only been for looks or other things I suppose.

3 Dec 2021 | 8:39 PM

Sounds like somebody got rather overwhelmed by becoming an ocean.
