This was supposed to be a much longer animation... For the last panel to make sense, just imagine the Otaku appearing after Jipples' first line.
Comic 590 is up, with a far shorter animation than I intended... I had been hoping to animate the entire last panel, to show the Otaku appearing at the appropriate time in the dialogue, but my animation program couldn't handle it. My own fault for making it longer than I needed to... If I have time, I'll put a shorter version together, but the simple explanation works for now.
