ohmy.gif Is this the start of the great horde war? Erika's army of good vs the Miho's-death-loving horde? All it takes is one well-aimed splody tube of fire to set things off.

Dun dun DUN!

Thanks for the comic, Fred. happy.gif

Yay for giant upcoming battle for supremacy and control of the lands!

The backdrop here on the cusp of greatness seems yet again disproving the notion that anyone can ever really get rid of The Horde. Showing it an error to assume that they're not always there watching, feeling, sensing, hungering; that there remains a potential danger when things are not sufficiently resolved. That not destruction, not the authorities, not anything will stop them from showing up whenever and wherever they want. What then does it sense now here about the all of it? Something must be sensed to draw them, we've been informed.

Well at the least we see that none of Piro, Largo/Erika, and Kimiko have outwardly messed up the performance by going out of character or giving up the wrong information and so on.

Still, that The Horde is arriving at all, unless this is something else entirely, it seems evident that what has gone on so far hasn't been sufficient in providing an adequate conclusion. Is the answer a more definitive final sort of event happening to Miho, some lecture or soliloquy or speech from Piro, a betrayal or murder by/of these or other not present, a sudden arrival of another event or force or set of beings. If The Horde isn't physical and separate, perhaps Largo can't blow them up directly. Perhaps the answer is figuratively demolishing them with fire and then replacing them with figuratively new fans, the same fans with different expectations.

An awesome enormous battle for which outlook on story ends prevails would be way cool of course.

Rather like what happened with the NPC after Anna Miller, but instead of a divide created by Piro berating them and confiscating storage, a divide from Largo and Erika blowing things up as Piro cares for the body of the fallen quite very dead Miho in his own very emo over it ways. Later.

It's hard to tell whether Piro is acting badly, or is still regenerating brain cells after that facial attack laugh.gif

I think Im just going to sit and wait this one out.... been trying to time stamp the last few strips anyway... and it appears that from kiss to now couldn't have been more than 2 minutes tops... until everything blows over there really doesn't feel like there is anything to oo and aw over.

Yay, comic!

This might actually work. I mean, it's already been proven that the horde can be fooled. At least, temporarily, that is...

Now, if only there were more 'splody tubes of fire laying around for maniacs to make use of. Then we might be able to call this "rescue" a done deal...

Wow, I can actually get on again. For some reason, my computer melted every time I tried to post something about the last strip.

As for this strip, I love how Erika knows ordinance. I wonder where she picked that up from? But Piro, I don't know if at this point he's acting, or processing, or what, but his facial expressions seem to indicate some mixture of confusion, numbness, shock, and grief. I don't think even he himself is sure if he is feeling these feels over Kimiko or Miho through Kimiko-as-proxy. It's going to take him a while to sort out his headspace after this all blows over.

An AT-4 does not look like that, Fred. The end cap flanges are much too largely pronounced. Looks like a Dragon tube, which is not a simple shoulder and trigger assembly with a low profile. If it is foreign, I would like to know what it is, please?

Largo better fire into the ground at the feet of the horde. It is likely to bounce as explode though. Only way to clear a hole in the horde since an anti-tank rocket will go right through a zombie without exploding. They are made to be armor piercing... after all.

It's seemingly some sort of Megatokyo fire launcher thing. Which both Largo and Erika believe to be functioning. Capable of doing something to The Horde. Probably not exactly like anything we could get or would need out here.

And Erika should not be standing behind him. Unless you want hot roasted bunny-girl-nurse for dinner, that is.

The way Erika just . . . appears in panel 9 is pretty impressive! She looks like she is leaping into the scene.

And, as usual, she is worth listening to. Erika is probably Best Girl in MT (apart from Junko, obvs biggrin.gif )

Very true. She definitely has the right sort of practical streak that life with him would require. smile.gif

Well if they believe Kimi is Miho, and why would the horde show up here if they did not, they either do not believe she is dead or being dead isn't good enough for them some how. Maybe they can sense the real Miho (currently airborne on AirNinja over Tokyo on the way to somewhere safe) is still alive. Maybe they can sense Kimi is still alive, but are unaware she isn't Miho. After all most of the time when Miho dies, the horde is not massed and standing near by to observe, yet they still get their dose of sad dying girl passing away all alone. Their default method of sensing Miho's sad dying stories that fulfill their characters need for a sad dying girl character analog must not be just sight and sound, it must go deeper. Some sort of magical, ESSDGP, Extra Sensory Sad Dying Girl Perception.

Whatever. They know that the limpish girl Piro just picked up is still alive and they are here to fix that. Which was kind of obvious with out all the above analysis. dry.gif

Or hell a large metropolitan high school collapsed yesterday and this hospital is filled to the brim with seriously injured pretty young school girls. With their old sad dying girl cured, maybe the horde is just here to recruit a new one.

And that is exactly the reason that the TPCD put out the "Contract to Neutralize" on Largo's head and why at some future point Meimi is going to demonstrate exactly why Erika was scared witless of her and pleaded for Largo to NOT be an assclown.

Wouldn't Meimi just buy a plane ticket for Largo(and Piro) to go home? Of course, that would mean the end of the comic..... wink.gif

Do we actually know that though? Perhaps we didn't see it because we weren't shown it, or perhaps we just didn't know to ever look. Although maybe Meimi was demonstrating ESSDGP, if that's what she was reacting to.

But agreed, the visible presence of The Horde to everyone present here seems to highly suggest something isn't right here.
