If you have a problem
If no one else can help
and if you can find them
maybe you can hire
the Megumi team.

Love the StarWars reference too. happy.gif

Thanks Fred.

These last two comics have been pure gold, ofcourse I don't see how running over the TPCD will help but it doesn't make it less funny.

Well, someone is a badass. However running a roadblock with armed soldiers and what appears to be a battlemech is usually a bad idea.

Huh. Never would've taken Megumi to be a Star Wars fan.

...I do hope that won't come back to bite her.

Woah. The Mugi-mobile is NOT bullet proof.. and we haven't had an anybody can die proof incident in MT ever, and we are entering a more action comic oriented phase of the story where such a thing could be necessary. But there are a lot of super's who could help out. And Mugi punches well above her weight in spunkyness and trying her best.

What trope will Megumi fill here. (1) Spunky minor characters can shine and aren't just canon fodder. (2) Spunky minor characters can try to shine but just end up having to be saved by one of their heroic friends. Or (3) Anybody can die (vitamin-D for action comics, where's the suspense if you don't believe the author will kill the cuties)

(1) I would love to see Mugi drift her car in a half spin to be parked, passenger door right next to Piro and Kimi and then take off with them. (perhaps with Masamichi yelling to his troops, "hold your fire men, I'm picking up major character readings in that vehicle now. Select Evil Empire aiming technique. Repeat, select evil empire aiming technique!!!"

(2) Perhaps more likely, Junpei will beat up the entire TPCD. (and start his relationship with Mugi unemployed??) Or a chatty Yuki could appear next to Megumi in the passenger seat (all buckled up since she's a good girl) with a big pile of TPCD clips, machine gun belts and RPG's in her lap. Maybe Mugi will drift her car into a perfect parking spot next to Piro, save them all by her self, and THEN have us shown that Junpei beat them up, Yuki stole their ammunition, or Yaku tied their shoe laces together.

(3) But hey guys, Megumi is so cute, and loved by all the fans and characters alike, and completely without super powers. And her death would be so useless compared to how fun her survival would be. um.. The last comic was named "play dead" and starred no Miho's or Kimi's, only Megumi, who conveniently reminds us she is an actress who has had no big parts (including in MT), yet.. and this comic is named "raising your own death flag". double um...

Yeah, she's doomed.

Only forum lurkers?

--------

Star Wars reference caught me too. Wouldn't have thought she was into any fantasy/sci-fi. Though it could be a coincidence...

Maybe the soldier will just shoot out her tires. They don't have to aim to kill ohmy.gif

This makes no sense for her to do. Risking her life to help a friend escape from creepy fans isn't called for at this point.

Largo is currently stoned and largely incoherent at this point. What exactly is it that he's going to do anyway?

Vis's point was that Fred doesn't see any of his characters as minor. They're all the main character in their own stories, and he treats them that way.

Piro struck him down, and he has become more powerful that you can possibly imagine.

I was thinking of the Meta-Largo who is playing "MegaTokyo: The Game" with Pirogoeth as per 1068

Megumi is doing waaaay too much for an NPC, don't you think?

The TPCD in front of Megumi's car is facing toward her, but the way he is going over it after she guns the engine looks like he was facing away...

I like Megumi and wish her well. I hope she pulls through this, but the odds look long and hard. GO MEGUMI, GO! PULL THEM OUT!

That seems kind of an... odd reaction for her to have. What possible reason could she have to run down a police officer? She is pretty much guaranteed a criminal record at this point and just wrecked her future career prospects? What she did isn't very rational and seems out of character.

Her friend is in danger and is counting on her to help. Maybe there was a better way than running down a cop, but she apparently couldn't think of one on the spot.
