Webcomic: Living With Hipstergirl And Gamergirl
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)
, 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).
- 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: Judging from the looks of this, it seems that Elly (seen in one strip before then) and Clara (a previously nameless character that was seen in multiple strips with Sophie) will become this.
- Author Appeal: Jago really enjoys putting focus on the bottoms of the ladies.
- 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.
- 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.◊
- Gag Boobs: Both Erika and Sophie are extremely well-endowed; there's no romantic tension between either of them and Artur note , but their effect on him on a lizard brain level is pretty much the main running gag of the strip.
- Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: This Mistaken for Gay example here.
- Jerkass: Sophie can be extremely selfish and unpleasant◊.
- 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 two Les Yay scenes in the series, one when she gets hit on by a horny busty Lipstick Lesbian when she made a comment about "playing for both sides". She also gets one with Sophie in which Artur overhears them in their room talking about something "Big and Wonderful" to play with they were talking about her Nintendo DS XL but he thought they were talking about... something else.
- Nails on a Blackboard: Sophie does this on a window when a blond 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 a head shorter), Elly is actually 21.
- 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.
- Straw Feminist: These Femen-like topless protesters◊ are probably rather more judgmental than their real life counterparts.
- This also seems to be the role of Clara.
- Take That: The comic has a tendency to fire shots at feminists, vegetarians, SJ Ws, people who blame violence on video games etc.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: A nonviolent form — DSLR selfies are one thing, but studio lights?
- Token Mini-Moe: Elly, as seen here.
- Woman Scorned: The girls have made it very clear◊ for Artur that this will be the result if he ever tried to take advantage of them.
