Behold, Piro speaks
A conversation has bloomed
Damn, it died again

Chug the beer, Piro
It just got really ackward
Time to make your move

Hear Largo retell of his killing spree
See Piro become his explainee:
"Mix reality with games
Find Tokyo in flames"
Says Kimiko, not interested, "I see".

Tokyo burning
Now even Piro has found
Salvation in beer

The last three panels of this strip have raised a few points in my mind. I don't think Kimiko is disinterested - far from it. I think the last two panels are in fact her lapsing into thought.

Remember how in earlier strips she talked with Erica about how dating games might affect the lonely guys who played them? Now mix that thought up with the revelation that there are guys out there so immersed in their gaming lives that they think zombies are everywhere. What if the guys who played the games she's involved in got equally wrapped up in their game worlds? It's enough to give a Seiyuu pause for thought, I think you'll agree.

And, of course, she believes Ping belongs to Largo. The implications of a Ren'Ai robot belonging to a guy who thinks video games are real are left as an excercise for the reader...

The following is from Kimiko's perspective:

"He thinks they are real?"
Reality blurred by games
Is a sob'ring thought...

"What if the Ren'Ai
I've been making all these years
Has the same effect?

"And, for that matter,
What about that Ping-chan doll
Piro-san mentioned?!"

what pain, hearing that
devastatingly neutral
pair of words, "i see"

"You see, Largo thinks zombies are real!"
Laughs Piro, with jovial zeal,
And tries, with a grin,
For a humorous spin -
You poor shmuck, I know just how you feel!

Largo ranting of stories untrue
Kimoko questions
Piro's screwed...

"largo has a stake
in chasing down the zombies!"
(dig, dig, dig, dig, dig)

There once was a gaijin named Piro
Who with ladies felt like a zero.
And when he essayed
To talk to a maid,
He ended up just chugging his beer-o.

<!haiku> ha ha! </!haiku>

Problems cluster and
Piro can't explain, so just sigh;
Just trust in the beer

Posted by: DeosArcana Jul 13 2002, 08:26 AM
One beer here, please ma'am
To drink my problems away
Because I'm afraid

"Wow, I am impressed"
Erika has never seen
Largo in action.

"Is he gaijin, or
Is there something more to him?"
Kimiko must know

<!haiku> I like that !haiku, so I'll do it from now on. Anyways, a hat-trick of haiku for all of you. Uh-oh, I'm stuck in a rhyming speil! But it does have certain appeal. Whoops, I did it again. I could go one day or ten. Someone stop me before it's too late. And I start to suck.


Wait, that last one didn't rhyme. Hooray! I'm free! Anyways, love the haiku folks. Keep 'em coming. Can't let the n3kt4r thread kick our ass, can we?</!haiku>

A funny story
"I see" the only response
Then awkward silence

It's not going well
Where's the romance, the passion?
Piro is too shy

ph34r, fir3, & zomb33z!
<"What is he talking about?">
Better not to know.

So you took your friend, after his brawl,
To get medical treatment - good call!
What I can't quite equate
Is just how he escaped
From his room with the rubber-lined walls!?
