Yes I predicted correctly!

Miho is most cute in her cat ears. Different but it still fits her.

Not to mention she is going to be naked in same building as Largo. Will something happen or is Erika the only person that can break largo's arm?

Personally, I think that Miho showing up for Ping's bath was kinda obvious... unlike Piro, she remembers her engagements.

Certain events are always obvious. Set up by the author in advance, you could say.
What happens at the bath, (assuming they actually make it there) that won't be obvious. But it will be funny.

In reply to:

~/ Jingle bells, Largo smells
Piro reeks as well...

Er... this is harder than I thought. All comers challenge! Finish these lyrics!


I'll take that challenge ... at least in part.

{Chorus}
Jingle bells, Largo smells, Piro reeks as well.
"No offense, I thought you died, The funk is a touch of hell."
Jingle bells, Largo smells, Piro reeks as well.
"No offense, I thought you died, The funk is a touch of hell."

{Repeat Chorus}

Waking in the dawn, in a tiny Tokyo loft.
A Beowulf Cluster built, but not by Microsoft.
Ping-chan recharging, waking in a fright,
Oh Piro-san, I smell so bad, how can I set it right?


There's two more verses and it's getting late. Original lyrics included below for anyone who wants to finish the filk.



Jingle Bells

CHORUS:
Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Repeat Chorus

VERSE:
Dashing thro' the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh.
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright,
what fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

VERSE:
A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated at my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
he got into and drifted back, and we we've got upset

Chorus
Repeat Chorus

VERSE:
Now the ground is white,
Go it while you're young!
Take the girls tonight,
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bobtail'd bay,
Twoforty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! You'll take the lead.

Chorus
Repeat chorus

Hamster-san, those lyrics rock. Far better than I was able to accomplish.
Heck, I didn't even know the original was that long.


In other news...
The next person to mention Chobits gets a massive RP beatdown.
Why? Because Chobits has caused us all a lot of pain, and the topic has been discussed to death.

Also, because every so often for no reason at all, Chii's voice saying "Hideki... hentai..." gets stuck in my head.

@anime*raver: we've noticed.


[this is my actual response to the comic]

Kawaii! Miho esta muy kawaii (don't bother me about mixing languages. i'm well aware i'm doing it)

Ping is also very cute. If I wasn't a dedicated Kimiko fanboy, I might actually switch idols. I won't say I'm not tempted.

note folds in Piro's shirt when he looks down. he's grabbed it, and is probably wondering when last he did washing. chances are you could use that shirt as plate armour by now.

Miho kawaii? only for the weak-minded... can't you see the danger in those eyes? she does a good impression, but those dark, hooded eyes... they never lie. remember her finishing move, as all Junpei fans shall!

*fetches crossbow*

Opt jumps in front of the panel holding an ofuda.

"Wait, MageArcher! Even if Miho is evil, isn't there still hope for her? Please, trust in the power of redemption! Also, know that I will defend her with my life, for even if she were only Ping-sama's friend, that would be enough."

Is this part of the drinking game yet? If not, somebody call Ray and tell him to add it. This is a two-drink, at least. (A bottle if they say it's not)

well it looks like I've made a bad first impression.

I've been reading MT for about a year now, but never checked out the message board. when I noticed the similarities between Chobits and the Ping bath story I thought I'd post about it. I guess that wasn't cool?

It's not so much a matter of not being cool as not having done your homework.

Had you done a search before posting, or lurked without posting for a while, you would likely have noticed that we've had no fewer than three topics discussing Chobits and it's effects on MT in the last 48 hours. The results were somewhat painful, and a lot of feelings were hurt.

Edits + obligatory links a-followin'...
Ping and Chobits -- I think this guy got about the same reaction as you did
Piro's Chobits Rant -- big, bad melodrama. lots of angst and hurt feelings.
To Fred... -- also spawned in the night o' melodrama.

Just so you don't get the wrong impression, we do try to be friendly, and one of our mottos is "kinder, gentler forums". This is just a really bad time for that particular topic.

And now, ye olde forum FAQ and rules sticky. (as of this afternoon sometime)
That's got all sorts of cool links. The drinking game is particularly important, and all forum-goers are encouraged to RP. *hands you a Temple of Ping flyer*

*walks on to the screen*

j0, Kit Chase here. For those of you that don't follow the RPs, I'm Megatokyo's friendly neighborhood weapons dealer. Well, besides C-kun and Nix, but that's beside the point.

*pulls a slide projector remote out of Quakespace and presses a button on it. A slide showing a picture of anime*raver appears*

Anyway, here we have a case of a clueless newbie, or as some people say, cl00l3ss n00b. In this case, said n00b has made the mistake of not paying attention to the forum before posting.

*next slide--a screenshot of the recent Ping/Chobits thread*

A few days ago, a thread started up pointing out the parallels between Ping and Chii. This thread lead to very bad things--namely, the near-lobotomy of Ping by a distraught Fred. Thankfully, this never happened.

However, the forums understandably would like to forget the incident, more or less.

*next slide--discussion of n00b punishments*

Now, normally I would respond to this by drinking myself into a stupor, although techically this offense is not in the drinking game. However, considering the seriousness of the offense and certain...economic pressures...

*next slide--a chart showing the decreasing number of willing test targets for weapons*

...I am forced to take more drastic measures.

*summons M4 shotgun from Quakespace and fires into anime*raver three times*

If anyone would like to practice their marksmanship on this ex-n00b, the Kit's Armory practice range charges $15/hour, or $10/hour for weapons purchased through us.

*next slide--Kit's Armory address and map*

Thank you for taking the time to listen to this message.

*picks up the n00b's corpse by the collar and hauls it off-frame*

Those edits are up, for all that anyone'll notice now that we're on a new page. I linked a few of the Chobits threads, and the sticky.

YES! Miho's back! I just couldn't imagine that she'd wearing cat ears... But actually she looks good with them. Great comic, indeed. I think I'll laugh all the day...again. With some reason I used to do that always I'd read the strip

This is not a good subject to bring up right now. Similarities (real or percieved) between the recent MT comics and that "certain Chobits episode" nearly caused Fred to delete Ping from the comic. As such, there was a lot of melodrama in the forum until Fred decided to leave her in, and simply change the plot as regards her instead. So this subject has caused a lot of grief and has been brought up far too often lately. That should make the responses your post has recieved clear. Since you're new, you'd not know this, and so walked into a minefield. You may want to read Fred's rant regarding this incident. It is still on the front page.

Edit: Opt498 has provided you with a more complete explanation as well as the relevant links. They will put you into context.


Opt498: Thank you. I didn't know that the song was that long either, but since I had a brain fart when filking I had to search for the lyrics and surprise! Two more verses that I never knew existed. If I've time later, I'll see what I can do with them, if no one completes the filk in the meantime.

Amen. If I hear that one more time I think I'll need a drink.
[EDIT: Well, I guess this has already been addressed by people much better at addressing these things than I. I guess it's through mistakes that we learn, and there's no way he coulda known if he's new to the forums. Just so you know, don't mention Love Hina, either. *ducks*]

But back to the comic.
Miho...KAWAII!!! While not up to the level of Kimiko, the Darkly Cute one does look good in this strip! I'm suprised no-one from the CoM has claimed dibs on frame 3 yet, that's my fave.

Neko-ears..me likey!

A-HA! I knew it! Miho wants to see Largo-sama's l33t n3kkid skillz too! She has been exposed to his manly chest and will stop at nothing to see it again.

Very clever, gothy girl, but we all know Largo-sama's going to wind up with Kimiko.

When I first read this I was almost afraid to go to the forums considering the reactions miho induced hysteria has done before on the COM. I guess it's still early so the worst is yet to come!!!

Well now on to the comic, first of all great comic Piro, Miho in cat ears is definately one of the most memorable image for me in megatokyo I just can't wait to see what's going to happen in the public bath. It should be interesting indeed....(insert manic laugh)
