Re: [1586] Chapter 13 - Redemption

I enjoy watching people use conventional knowledge about genetics and familial lineages [...] to try and figure out where Megumi fits within the hierarchy of the Kitsune family I'm not doing anything of the sort. The only observation I've made is that Megumi calls Grandma "Grandma", and Ashe "cousi...

Re: [1586] Chapter 13 - Redemption

But wasn't she running around with Ashe? I'm confused now 😅 I certainly won't claim to not be confused by the details of the relationships. To the best of my abilities to seek aid from search ninja, those details have yet to be revealed, and I'm pretty sure that's deliberate on Fred's part. When Me...

Re: [1586] Chapter 13 - Redemption

I am increasing my bet that "Megumi didn't know she was a foxgirl, let alone nine-tailed" from 15 Bayesian units, to a million.

Re: [1580] with love

Megumi is one of the oldest characters in the strip having been introduced around #32 shortly after we met Erika and Kimiko You remind me that when I was active in the old forums (2006-2009 or so) the sentiment was occasionally expressed that Piro was "lucky" to have someone like Kimiko, that she w...

Re: [1585] rest and recovery

I think his head is about as dense as neutronium. Largo is the Ken Clean-Air Systems of MegaTokyo. Although he does unfortunately still have a small particle of brain in his skull, once that's removed he'll be perfectly all right. EDIT: While I was reviewing the more memorable of Largo's exploits i...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

The way things are going they may all end up at the Fox Hole with everyone else. Oh no argument there.

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

We have both a new, young, powerful and nervous Magical Girl, and a young, brash and spunky three-tail Kitsune, hanging out together. What are the odds? Destined to be best of friends? Maybe Yaku can keep Yukata healthy enough to actually date? Bit of a side note, but sorry, when did Yuki and Yakug...

It’s too bad love hotels don’t have cafes. You could have everyone showing up for breakfast.
They could have bangers -- that is, breakfast dogs -- and the plot would quickly become a dog''s breakfast.

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

we have come to an ominous fork in the road with regards to Megumi. Very well put. The more I have thought about it today, the more I see three stages that will need to be worked (more likely struggled) through: a) What is Megumi now physically capable of? b) What subset of a) will Megumi actually ...

darrin, I'm not claiming that Teddy is right; I'm not claiming Teddy is "wrong", so that's fine. I'm saying he has a justifiable position to argue from.

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

The north star was useful because it was a fixed reference point for navigation. The important point is that it gave information about the external world, as opposed to "Whatever direction I am facing must be north, because my nose and my gut never steer me wrong." And in the past, Teddy was right ...

Teddy is our north star, always unchanging. Even Fred acknowledges this.
I submit that the north star is useful because it actually, you know, shows which direction is north.

Although the dark hair color makes the tails a bit difficult to distinguish from one another, the overall effect of the color choice is a striking one. I like it.

Perhaps she does. And many are destroyed that need non-destroyedness. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out being destroyed in judgement. I trust my nose and my guts, D.

It's only /his/ perception filter that she's been cheating. Usually the "perception filter" works in the other direction.
