Webcomic / Living With Hipstergirl And Gamergirl

A lucky guy shares apartment with two beautiful girls, each one of them with a singular way of life.

Living with Hipstergirl and Gamergirl is a comic, written in Spanish and English, that puts its own millennial spin on the old Three's Company formula. Written by Colombian artist Jago (possibly NSFW)note , the comic follows Artur and his two incredibly attractive and decidedly strange roommates, snarky hipster Sophie and obsessive gamer Erika.

Strips first used to run irregularly, first in Spanish, then usually a few weeks later in English. (Links should be considered NSFW for occasional toplessness.) Jago also puts strips (and much other material) on his Website/DeviantArt account (guaranteed NSFW).

Nowaway his strips and NSFW material are published on his Patreon profile. Previews and spanish version of his strip are still published on DeviantArt, while the English version is published one to two days later on Patreon.

Tropes for this work include:

  • Acceptable Breaks from Reality: Erika's opinion of this when she's trying to get her Pikachu healed in a Pokemon Center.
  • A-Cup Angst: Judging from Elly's expression seen here, that is.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: How Arthur explains being able to lift weights bigger than his own body with just one hand.
  • All There in the Manual: Any and all development of the relationship between Arthur, Sophie, and Erica, or various backstory factoids (such as Megan's reason for pursuing Arthur) are not located in the main numbered installments, but in the numerous side comics and bonus epilogues to numbered strips, which are not shown on the main gallary page. You have to select the tag "Living With Hipstergirl And Gamergirl" to easily find them.
  • Ascended Extra: Both Elly and Clara were not part of the original group but quickly became recurrent characters with a main quirk of their own much like Sophie and Erika.
    • Megan (first seen in strip #176) is becoming a recurring character as well.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Artur is accidentally accurate when Clara yells at him for "manspreading". He basically asks her "What is it that really upsets you, me spreading my legs, or you not having a chance in years to spread yours?" This gives him her wrath.
  • Author Appeal: Jago really enjoys putting focus on the bottoms of the ladies.
  • Bare Your Midriff: The main girls, and often all the girls Jago draws.
  • Berserk Button: One of the reasons why Erika left home was because she had issues with her mother blaming violence on video games. She's also not very fond of facebook games and it's implied that any mentions of the new era of videogames being better than the old one is also a touchy subject for her.
  • Cosplay: Arthur, Erika and Elly are very fond of this. And sometimes Sophie, too.
  • Daddy's Girl: Erica is often spoiled by her father, who would never say no to her, and often secretly buy her video games.
  • Dope Slap: Erika gives Sophie one in a recent strip, after the two of them (now thoroughly infatuated with Arthur) overhear just how serious he is about keeping his promise not to make a move on them.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Sophie invades her neighbors' home and eats a drumstick and drinks a cup because they are using her Wi-Fi.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Sophie may come across as a snobbish Jerk Ass that doesn't really care about anybody, but even she got freaked out in this strip.
    • She calls out on her sister for carelessly leaving behind a a bottle of chemicals in the event her daughter Lucy could accidentally swallow its contents.
  • Fanservice: Given the nature of the strip, it was inevitable.
  • Gag Boobs: Both Erika and Sophie are extremely well-endowed and their effect on Artur on a lizard brain level is pretty much the main running gag of the strip.
  • Genki Girl: Erika is this from time to time. Especially when she's around Artur.
  • Hate Sink: Clara is actually a parody of this. Despite being the resident Social Justice Warrior of the strip, most people actually empathize with the comics featuring her, due to her actions showing how flat out ridiculous people like her can act.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In strip 294, Sophie calls some churchgoers "sheep" for letting their money be taken away, as she sees it. Then she runs into an Apple store to buy an iPhone X. For bonus points, she pronounces "buy" as "baahhh-y".
  • Innocent Cohabitation: In spite of the Unresolved Sexual Tension and Ship Tease, they're still platonic. Erika and Sophie previously had a roommate that tried to get beyond this, and his story told Arthur what would happen if he took too many liberties.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Erika. Erika.
  • Insult to Rocks: The unreadably small text during the news.
    "Congress is a rat's nest says public opinion, offended rats announce lawsuit"
  • Jerkass: Sophie can be extremely selfish and unpleasant.
    • Megan comes across as this, the reason being that she treated Artur horribly since high school (and even had a very low opinion of him once she sees him again in this strip,) only to do a complete 180 on her viewpoint when she sees how much attention he's getting from Erika and Sophie, hinting at her jealousy.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Both women. They mostly do their household work in bra and panties. However, Erika seems to be falling into this trope a lot more openly than Sophie is nowadays.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Erika gets a Les Yay scene in the series when she gets hit on by a horny busty Lipstick Lesbian when she made a comment about "playing for both sides".
    • Sophie and Arthur were once mistaken for a lesbian couple.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite looking lanky, Artur is capable of lifting tons with his right arm, something he blames on his roommates since they're just roommates.
  • Nails on a Blackboard: Sophie does this on a window when a blonde woman asks her if she could play music that's appealing to her (in a rather bitchy way).
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Erika thinks she's an aversion. She isn't.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: When asked why he won't ask any of the girls out, Artur explains that he was told not to try anything with the girls on pain of death by Sophie. Cue a Dope Slap from Erika, as it's clear that at this point in the comics, both girls actually do have the hots for him, but don't outright say it.
  • Nosebleed: Based on the tissues stuffed up his nose, Artur is clearly anticipating one when Erika falls out of her shirt after winning a racing game.
  • Older Than She Looks: Despite looking way younger than the rest of the cast (and being three heads shorter than Artur), Elly is actually 21.
  • Only Six Faces: Almost any male outside of Arthur tend to look the same.
  • Panty Shot: In damned near every strip! Even if they're not fully visible, Sophie and Erika's pants and shorts have a tendency to droop juuuust enough for their panties' waistbands to be visible (and for the cut of said panties to be detectable).
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: The girls have made it very clear for Artur that this will be the result if he ever tried to take advantage of them.
  • The Pigpen: Erika wears tattered clothes so she can spend her money on games, seems (for multiple reasons) to rarely if ever wear a bra (unless that's all she's wearing on top), goes without showering for days, and seems to deny the fact that she is, in fact, extremely hot.
  • Recut: The comics originally shown visible nipples. However, any portion that originally shown them are censored.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Not exactly a surprise, but Erika in a seriously risqué Pokémon dress in this New Year strip.
    • Male Example: Artur may come across as a bit of a slacker in his appearance, but when he puts on the ritz....
  • The Snark Knight: Sophie. It's made clear that she was incredibly jaded even as a child.
  • Straight Man, Supporting Protagonist: Artur has very little real personality as portrayed and exists mostly as a foil to Erika and Sophie's bizarre behavior.
  • Ship Tease: While initially averted, Artur starts getting heavy amounts of this with Erika and Sophie (and later Elly).
    • Sophie gets this in particular and it's becoming increasingly obvious she very much likes him. She's bought a fancy, low-cut dress for the sole purpose of teasing Artur, leaning down very far while doing so. When Erika mistakes lettuce for mistletoe and kisses Artur, Sophie's reaction is to feed him an entire bowl of it knowing he hates it. When he objects she tells him to pretend it's mistletoe and he quickly figures out that she's really mad about the incident and eats with no further objection. Another is when he heads out for a date, only to be distracted by spotting Sophie in the bathroom brushing her teeth with few clothes on and staying in. Erika points out later why Sophie left the door open on purpose. Even more recently was when she spots Artur near-naked (walking on him in the restroom) and is seemingly unflustered though when she tries to downplay it, Erika makes a snarky comment that makes her blush (not to mention how her glasses were fogged up.)
    • Erika, by contrast, is prone to less jealousy and more outward displays of affection; more than once she'll tackle Arthur with a hug or even kisses (accompanied by hearts floating all around her, no less). At one point she feigns distress after handily knocking out a man who was creeping on her solely so Arthur would comfort her with a hug afterward. She does have her bits of jealousy though. One infamous moment was when she heard the Arthur will be going out with Megan. She looks upset before she offers to put his hair in a ponytail to help. The punchline? She used her panties to tie his hair back. While Artur remains unaware of it and wondering why Megan is quiet, Megan very much notices it.
  • Straw Feminist:
  • Take That!: The comic has a tendency to fire shots at feminists, vegetarians, SJWs, people who make claims about topics they know nothing off, among many others.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: A nonviolent form — DSLR selfies are one thing, but studio lights?
  • Token Mini-Moe: Elly, as seen here.
  • Tsundere: Sophie eventually becomes this for Artur. She even refers to him as fool to hide her embarassment.
  • When She Smiles: Sophie. When she tells Artur about someone who got aggressive about how she should smile more, his response is agree she shouldn't force herself to smile. Because it makes the times she actually does even better. A statement that got her to smile.
