Re: [1520] What I've been feeling

It could be worse. English doesn't even use them, so I pity the machine translator that has to figure out whether I read the story (past tense) or read the story (present tense). (^_~) That's a whole level of complexity beyond what I'm asking for. All I'm saying is that when I type "coir" on the le...

Re: [1520] What I've been feeling

Well, I thought the "Miho feels them having sex" theory was too out there, but I stand corrected. Yeah me too. (Usually when a Bayesian update shifts your probability estimate by 10% or 15% in either direction, that's a pretty big deal. To go from <5% to >95% in one comic is leaving me kinda dizzy....

Re: [1519] Everything to do with me

I would be mostly with @darrin on the psychic link, except it doesn't really make sense... To be honest no, I am still not strongly convinced of the "channeling / physically linked" idea. I am just saying that even given that assumption, there are other possible explanations besides "orgasms" for w...

Re: [1519] Everything to do with me

And finally. Yay for Fred. He has totally one upped every goofy Japanese sex scene censorship method ever. He has managed to illustrate an orgasm ( two of them now), by drawing a different girl, in a different part of town having the shivers. Well, the censorship methods aren't universally applied ...

Re: [1519] Everything to do with me

If the whole "channelling miho" arguement is correct, then what Kimiko is thinking or intends herself doesn't matter so much anymore. The horde's belief is what powers the story, and they have been given no indication that Kimiko has stopped being Miho. I'm not claiming this "channeling Miho" idea ...

Re: [1519] Everything to do with me

Kimiko isn't just pretending to be Miho She isn't pretending to be Miho at all as of 1510 (and arguably wasn't doing much of a job of pretending, let alone "channeling" Miho, since the whole point was for "Miho" to be dead in the back seat of the car, not kissing Piro). Piro for his part was comple...

Wait, Yaku is going to write her new friends, so new people are going to suddenly get created? How does that work?

OR! Or... Erika is definitely blonde... That claim has me no less confused sorry. The only color pic with Erika I could find though is this which could be argued as having a rather.. unconventional? color scheme. But for whatever that one is worth I'm not seeing Erika as any more blond than Kimiko....

Nah, I've already done enough walls-o'-text on it in relatively recent threads, to the point where it was called pedantic. If I start repeating myself on the subject it'll just cause more whaling and gnashing of teeth.

I am still confident all the folks claiming "Miho and Piro love each other" will be put in their plaice as events ...

Because panels 6 and on appear to be a way for Meimi to let Largo know Yuki needs a more impressive computing device and a distraction to get out of the house.

I'm not very good at subtle byplay :P When Yuki squishes on the food, Yuuji's the only other person in the panel. It didn't occu...

It'd be more accurate to think of Stability... I am curious as to why people think what they do about "Stability". This doesn't answer that question, but just adds one more to the pile.

Re: Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking dead at age 76

I remember what a blow it was when Feynman passed. In some ways this was less of a surprise given the health issues Hawking struggled with throughout his life.

But the struggles were valiant, and the achievements were magnificent.

Just look how many forumites over the years have been enthralled by Miho.

It's going to be an interesting conversation. At some level, Yakugashi doesn't actually have any reason to be angry at Miho. If Miho has been telling the truth the past few chapters, and really doesn't have any control over the fanboy hordes that are catastrophically obsessed with her, then presumab...
