I don't remember, has the Daylight Update been mentioned before or is this the first time it's been brought up?
It's been mentioned before.
There was a "Daylight Highlight" here.
Now I'm wondering if at any point Undine's Survivor Guilt has ever made her think "They wouldn't even have been Magical Girls if not for me."
It must be really disappointing for some people who just keep waiting to become part of their friend's team but it never happens.
Another question this made me think of:
How much does a willingness or desire to become a Magical Girl factor into their odds of getting the Dream? Their society seems overall accepting of inactive MGs, so there may well have been unwilling MGs that needed accommodating. Yet Rue, for all her conspiracy theory, fights the good fight and Zoe, while it may have turned into a case of Be Careful What You Wish For, really did want to be a Magical Girl. Most girls treat it as something awesome and/or worthwhile, too.
I've also started to wonder if there's something unique about Undine as a magical girl. Not necessarily in a The Chosen One sense, but little things stand out like when the girls talked about their Dreams she seemed the only one to consider it a positive experience. She also retained memory of the Girl in the Dream, something the Girl seemed surprised by. She's also the one actively targeted by Goops.

It's possible it has something to do with her surviving the attack by Goops. I was initially under the impression that Goops just attacked them at random, and now she's fixated on Undine. Remembering the Girl could either be a result of Tess' sacrifice or just plain misinterpretation on the Girl's part; it's not like she often returns to give another Dream after she's given the first one. Note that Undine still doesn't remember the Girl when she's actually awake.
Goops' motives are the big question mark here.
Despite the url, this is the start of chapter 10. I'll try and get it edited if/when it's fixed.
Also, to quote one reply on Twitter "You must realize we now require concept art for Heartful Paunch."

Confirmation that a Daddine exists.
I need to know the official shipping name for Undine/Kokoro so I can headcanon that this is whatever everyone's calling their duo.
I was mentally spelling it Daddyne, myself
Bud and Harley did have that Heartful Wave/Water Punch debate, for what it's worth.

Momdine you... do realize "hook up" means something different to them young folks, right?
So in her mind, her daughter finally got a date... not a new person with whom to fight the things that just killed three of her four closest friends for at least the past two years.
New comic: http://www.sleeplessdomain.com/comic/chapter-10-page-02
Momdine really is gonna try to learn about every single aspect of Undine's relationship with Kokoro right now huh
Ah, yes, the age old "I want to call now, but I don't want to look desperate" dilemma.
It's official! Sleepless Domain is being published in French by Hachette!
Oooh. Blindsprings too.
I've seen some wondering why the title isn't being translated, but French-language comics with English or partially English titles aren't unheard of. There's Billy the Cat, Les Sisters… heck, Lucky Luke. Though in fairness, that one does take place in The Wild West.

Doesn't seem all that different to how we don't always fully translate some anime or manga titles, or how they themselves sometimes use English (randomly or otherwise)
That somehow reminds me, the first time I saw the word Les Yay, I thought it was "les" as in the French word for "the" (plural). Like, Les Yays! :D
Also, none of these titles start with "the", so they wouldn't be affected by French publishers' habit of stripping it.
Title Page: Diastole
Finally breaking the water theme of chapter titles for a heart theme (Diastole is "is the part of the cardiac cycle during which the heart refills with blood after the emptying done during systole (contraction).")
I mean, blood is a type of liquid. This is technically a title about something that happens to a liquid substance.
Perhaps, but it's a little more obscure than past titles have been, with Aeration probably being the most obscure up to this point. That as the cover having only HP with no Undine in sight makes me more inclined to think a deliberate break in pattern. It's definitely more heart-centric at least.

How well does it match the trope?
