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 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 DeviantArt account (guaranteed NSFW).


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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
