Re: [1571] fresh air

One more little tidbit to add to Invisigoth's theory....the reason WHY someone like Grandma would try to bind the power lurking inside Megumi. Can you imagine the damage a toddler with the power of a nine-tailed kitsune would do by throwing a temper tantrum? If this theory holds true, I can only ass...

Re: [1571] fresh air

I have a completely unjustified headcanon that Megumi pissed off an extremely powerful kitsune and they cursed Megumi to never know romance. Mine is that Megumi IS an extremely powerful kitsune and that the “curse” was placed in an attempt to protect her with the side effect of blocking any possibi...

Re: [1570] when your story has changed

In a sense, Yaku is being portrayed fairly accurately for a child. These days, children often tend to be pretty smug about things until stuff gets real and then the thin veneer pulls back and you see them for what they really are.....just children put into a scary situation. Yaku has been through a ...

Re: [1568] making it up

Was Yaku drooling in the second last panel? If so, I wonder if that was from being scritched. Maybe fox girls like that sort of thing. I wouldn't want to see anyone try it on the deaf girl though. I suspect the person attempting it would lose an arm or two.

Re: [1567] "that explains a few things"

It's my impression that Largo has a prejudice against the kind of "weepy" anime and manga that Piro likes. It's almost as if he considers his FPS stuff to be directly opposite to the kind of "emotional" stuff that Piro likes. This would include the memes of cat girls and fox girls which often show u...

Re: [1566] Your name

There is a LOT to unpack with this strip. Waiting for Yaku to shred Largo and Erika in the next few strips Somehow, I doubt that is going to happen, Invisigoth. Look at Yaku's face in panel 3. That, to me, is the look of terror. She is terrified of either Largo or Erika or perhaps both. I suspect m...

Re: [1564] Important

On other points though, I still suspect that Megu is in fact a nine-tail and that's going to be an entirely new story when that reveals (if it does in fact come to fruition) Ah, I get it now. Megumi has used her eldritch powers to make herself forget who / what she really is. As far as she (possibl...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

Sigh, maybe I'm just too old to be as flustered and preoccupied by things such as casual nudity in a comic strip as some of you youngsters seem to be. I just can't figure out why there is so much focus on what I consider to be such a minor part of this particular strip. The nudity to me, is of littl...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Now, I am not a huge fan of Largo. He's got a serious problem with trying to deal with normal social customs and this can result in him making situations a LOT worse. However, I have to commend him on being incredibly open-minded at times and having AMAZING powers of observation. Think about this, f...

Re: [1558] Getting through

That last panel has left me VERY worried. If as has been said here, she has reality-warping powers, what's to stop her from switching bodies with Erika? She may have the power and certainly does have motive. She also strikes me as being a bit unconcerned with the welfare of others.

MegaTokyo is the ultimate open ended sandbox game. Erika and Largo are a married couple in unMod, the reality that MegaTokyo is nested within. What happens in MT may or may not be reflecting the unMod reality of their relationship which includes Largo's high stress police work, their house in the s...

Re: [1555] Go see her

So, I take it that Largo still can not understand Japanese? He seems to be watching their body language in a rather intense fashion. I really do hope he bows out of this impending visit to Moeko. He's a bull in a china shop and without being able to understand the language,he's probably going to sti...

With regards to Megumi's ears and tails, there might have been some issues with regards to the direction that the potential witnesses were facing. Although, I must admit Granny should have gotten a pretty damn good view of her tails in that one scene. Why she never commented, well, I guess we might ...

Someone PLEASE tell me what the HELL is it gonna take for Megumi to finally clue in.

Surely Megumi can't be THAT dense,...

Re: [1553] Oops

I don't really know sign language so please forgive me if I am misinterpreting this, but in that last panel was Ashe trying to cut Megumi off from saying anything else about Piro and Kimiko? If so, I have a funny feeling that Ashe and Granny might be the only sensible ones in that room right now.

So, in the previous thread, I had mentioned the possibility that Megumi was in the process of awakening to become a nine-tailed kitsune (assuming those tails and ears were not jokes). Ashe is about to spill the beans to Megumi. I wonder how Megumi will react to this information. Is THIS what will fi...

Re: [1551] A little rough

I dunno, I'm pretty sure that the clan wouldn't be able to suppress a nine tail without her permission. Don't forget that MT revolves around different perceptions of people and things around them. Frequently the characters self image is very much at odds with reality as well. Fred does love his "fr...

Re: [1551] A little rough

Could she possibly be POSSESSED by a nine-tail? The tails and ears are quite real. Maybe she had the nine-tail sealed in her abdomen by ninja as part of a desperate attempt to save their village. :ninja: Oh gawd, not that. I hope not that. I see that show as the ninja version of "Drag-on Ball"........
