Re: [1535] Pain

Uh oh. Looks like The Story does not like what Miho was trying to do with it.

Someone get Yaku a notebook. Stat.

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

That one though would be triggering her scary daddy powers. Her scary mamma powers would still be... um.. You know, I am starting to think now is really not a good time to be reminding Miho of all the reasons she has to be even more pissed off at the moment. So I am going to shut up now. :shock:

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

I'm pretty sure that Miho is channelling all the scary mama powers for the love of the children that she could never have.... Hmm, a naive young girl, trying to help someone she found strange and maybe a bit scary, only to find herself sucked into something horribly violent and completely out of he...

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

Ah, so the first panel is actually Miho saying "BOOM!" on her way out, just like Hellboy is saying it in the first panel above?

I am extremely pleased to have that explained to me, thanks. :lol:

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

Shame on that first ninja, everyone knows that explosions are always a distraction. Hmm, I interpreted the "boom" as Miho blowing through the ceiling / wall /whatever on her way out. So not an intentional distraction, just a gentle reminder that one should never put one's face along the outgoing ve...

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

She's writing one hell of a bad ass character for herself. It's possible that she's not; that instead of having her nose rubbed in the limitations of her own story (people who love her die, she dies, she comes back somehow, over and over), she is fully focused on someone else's issues for the first...

Re: [1533][WIP][TWITCH] swimming back to shore [?], also voting on whether there should be one big Twitch thread

Suggestion: Most of these WIP threads only get one or two comments. Rather than start and lock a new one for every comic, perhaps we could have an ongoing Twitch thread? I think that might make it easier to look for SFS, etc. To the extent my opinion as a non-Twitch-follower counts, I think that's ...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Well, the "pantsu" comment was just dumb. I do consider it far less likely than a lot of the alternatives (including the one I've been backing -- this is not actually an EK creep, but has something significant to do with Ping and was meeting with Junko for (non-EK) reasons directly related to that)...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

You are too kind Darrin. Or too biased. Hard to tell sometimes. :( I think Stranger Danger is too absorbed in his world to see the larger world of Megatokyo. It's definitely hard to be certain from just the one panel with the Old Man's face so tiny. Still kinda hoping for a conversation of some kin...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

It is not foul Miho to the rescue... she is no hero. Well no, not yet. When Frodo says "I will take the ring, though I do not know the way," he's certainly no hero. Arguably the opposite: he failed to follow Gandalf's instructions, he totally fscked things up on Weathertop, he's been relying on his...

If you think about it, she's the only major or semi-major character in MT without some sort of superlative trait. Maybe she can sing? Except Junko's superlative trait was already established quite some time ago. Junko having such an additional ability would be another unexplained (or at least unfor...
