9/5/08: I'm not terribly satisfied with this page, but in order to move the plot along I have to jump ahead. I really wanted to introduce more of the chars, but it might get confusing if I do too much of that early on.
Also, once again I got carried away with the background in the cafeteria and ended up drawing a heck of a lot of chars who will be making future appearances, even though they're hard to make out. Many of them are the Guest Chars. I just couldn't help myself. :)
Note on the cafe wall: "NOTE: People may appear horribly out of scale."
