Incidentally, unless something suddenly changes, Todd's not even planned to appear in this chapter.  But this particular arc with him is important, so I wanted to make sure it got brought up even if he himself isn't around.  I wonder if there's any plausibility to the "machismo theory" though.  Thoughts on that?

Also, as you can see in the last panel, Ruby is still there having lunch and remains totally unnoticed thus far.

Why do I get the horrific idea that "Ruby" will feel bad for Todd, and go to prom with him... and it ends up being a HUGE blowup when he incidentally finds out it's Rudy. OMG dramatic plot twist potential LOL.

Skimming the words I thought they said ballerina instead of bully.

"Oh, maybe that's it.  He's a ballerina, right Aidyn?"

What an interesting twist that would be.  XD

It could happen, guy tries to cover his feminine side by being overly matcho.

I like Collete's attitude, very positive. The machismo theory seems plausible enough to me, Todd could easily have a bruised ego finding out that his "punching bags" all have dates for the prom

So the conversation continues, I get the feeling that Ruby might get involved in this whole thing might  of course I am not quite sure that how that would work though, considering Todd he must have a reason and it could very well be something about machismo something to do with his family too, that is kind of what I feel now, either way I get the feeling that somehow we will know about it soon enough.

He must be a super jerk to not gave a date. I still remember having to find a date from another school because the jerks all had two or three partners.

Although being on the autism spectrum & not having a diagnosis really didn't help.

A left field prediction:

Todd is in the mall and asks Ruby to prom.

End result?  Dunno.  Odds of it happening?  Dunno.  My gut is saying it's possible though.

I like that prediction!

But then he would have to spend prom night Mrs. Doubtfire style running back and forth from the bathroom.

Actually I have no problem with that.

Hilarity ensues.

The problem with this is Todd is a Junior, Rudy is a Sophmore.

Underclassmen need a Senior to take them.

If the concern is less about a prom date and more a date-date like the girls think, then it probably doesn't matter.  He just wants a date so he doesn't feel like the loser.

That said Todd isn't appearing in the chapter, but...  It could be foreshadowing?

I know. I just think it would be funny. And Ruby doesn't go to the school after all...

So the old "I don't really want to be asked by this annoying guy but now that's he's been asking everybody but me, it makes me feel a bit selfconscious" routine?

I feel like there's a major epiphany about to be made about Todd's motivations.

It's usually used to refer to over-masculinity. IE a buff, 'I get all the girls' kinda guy.

Isn't that Gurren Lagann? Afterall, the Reputation of Team Gurren echoes far and wide! When people talk about their badass leader, a pillar of masculinity, they're talking about none other than the Great Kamina! Who else? :p

OK, that sounds like it might hit Rudy/ruby pretty hard, being one of Todd's "punching bags" without a date. Though I could be wrong, he might be ok with being single.

Ok, yes, Rudy has a "date". But, he's not going with someone for romantic reasons, and I can see that possibly hitting him hard right now. Especially with what the people at the other table are talking about.
