Re: [1564] Important

Zombie Rent-A-Zilla was made into a huge running joke. Joking can cover up a great many things. 1) RAZ was bitten in 1091, and in the immediately subsequent strip 1092 it was blatantly obvious he had been infected and turned into Zombie Zilla. (If you count the obvious implication of Yuki's frantic...

Re: [1564] Important

I think Erika has been dominated by Moeko. I gathered, yeah. :roll: https://media.giphy.com/media/l2JdU2USoomd7NR9S/giphy.gif I'm not questioning THAT you think that, I'm asking WHY you think that given the utter lack of positive evidence for that idea in the strips so far, and given your lack of r...

strength to spare there. And now it is amped up with the magic girl energy of Moeko. We shall see how it turns out, but I think Erika is no longer in the driver's seat of her body. If you're not satisfied with the in-story evidence Roamer & I have pointed to, please at least consider the least hypo...

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...

Bit of a shame the old forum archives are still down, or I could point to where I once posted something like the following: "So who kills Dom?" "What?" "In the end, who kills Dom? Is it Largo? Who?" "Nobody, nobody kills Dom. He lives." "You mean he WINS? JESUS Grandpa, why did you even read me this...

Then we had Ping and her friends ALSO at the foxhole trying to figure out how to get her dad to have sex with her
That's precisely the opposite of what Megumi, Ashe, and grandma were trying to figure out.

But it doesn't come across like that at all, at least to me. Me either, I agree. This isn't Hitoshi saying "I'm dumping you because I think I'm holding you back (except I'm actually lying about that because of my own issues which I think are more important than yours)". Largo by contrast is worried...

Re: [1563] That performance

So is it that Erika can now snatch the pebble from his hand and walk the rice paper without leaving a mark? Or is it something more depressing than that?

I was able to follow the link and download the code (thanks garapagosu :D). It is only a collection of .php files however, without a readme or other instructions.

This is one of the cutest EDs ever.
The music + singing kinda reminded me of the Seitokai no Ichizon ending, and the dance moves kinda reminded me of the Kiss x Sis ending.

I therefore concur. :lol: Thanks for posting that.

If we do have a usable backup but it is more than a trivial amount of work, we may be dependent on finding a volunteer who knows what they're doing and cares enough about the old forums to put in the work to get them back up. paarfi, I PMed you about this a few months back, but I'd like to state it...

I'm of the opinion that many of the people in charge of Stability (if that's the proper way to view them) do not have a clear idea of what CA's like Miho are or what they are capable of. Fred may very well have such a "clear idea" in mind, and is keeping the cards close to the chest so to speak, wa...

Whoa hold your horses peoples... you assume that what Moeko says is true, right? Can't speak for all the other horse-holders here, but, uh, no, no I don't. It's quite possible this "bad Irish magical girl" was deliberately introduced into the Girl Phase story by Stability, or by someone who knew ab...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

When her mother played GirlPhase on the TV in the hospital room, it let her see that might-have-been. It let her live her life, even if vicariously through a TV character, in a way that she'd never be able to do for real. Which makes me wonder, did Moeko manifest herself to her mother the way she i...

I have always greatly admired CS Lewis's defense of fairy tales and children's literature. Or in defense of literature that others considered "children's" that arguably wasn't; go back a few hundred years and "fairy tales" were a (non-child-specific) genre, as legitimate then as say detective or ro...
