Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

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...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Well, seeing a young lady dressed in a kimono put the beat down on a squad of ninjas, his SEP field probably kicked in. Well I would claim that if the majority are correct about this guy being the Stranger Danger creep who dates high school girls, then such a sight should on the contrary have attra...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Kudos to Yl33 D4 N00b, MoneyMan, and Rapierman for pointing out the flower last panel and its almost certain connection to Miho. (I had wanted to agree with them this morning but was kinda in a hurry when I posted.) Remains to be seen whether Ashe is looking at an enraged Miho about to do who knows ...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

As I just read through MT again, finding this remark out here makes me think of the way Largo has adressed and referred to Ping from the beginning. Largo is… well, Largo [...] Yes indeed, very good point. I did actually leave him out of my "analysis" deliberately, because how the heck do you "analy...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

So no PS2 games to train her, instead everything that happened with the adventures of her first two in-world role models and everyone revolving around them. Indeed, the oddity of her "training" has been inconsistent to the point of self-contradictory, and almost certainly far outside any use regime...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

Junko is now the person who is "playiing" with her, and her comment about not being able to say no may have triggered a basic routine in Ping's coding. Are you referring to Junko's last few comments in 1175 ? I feel like I should know this one but my searches for places where Junko talks about not ...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

Rather than talking about disconnects, I'd say Ping is jumping the gun. Except she's not just complaining about how slowly he's moving; she's explicitly said that she knows he doesn't want to have sex with her, and she is trying to figure out how to change that state (whether to just save Junko or ...

Not of those who posted before me in this thread, no.

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

Is nobody else noticing the big disconnect? Ping is trying to save Junko from having to have sex with a guy who doesn't want to . That's what I was saying in the 1530 thread. It seems a good bet at this point that Junko, Ping, Old Guy, and now Megumi have completely different models in their heads ...

I'm not sure, but I think she wants him to want to have sex with her, so that he will try to put the moves on her, thereby triggering her modesty protocols, and then she can bash him with a telephone pole like Jun said she wanted to? Ya but... if he actually didn't originally want to (something I c...

You all do realize that Fred was seriously trolling and making a double entendre when he said that Ashe would "eat" Ping's date don't you?
Snerk. "Why does Ross, the largest friend, not simply eat the other five?"

Going forward, Ashe in my head will be "the largest kitsune."

a contract unfulfilled is a stain on the honor any organization The contract is on the "head" of the family. "Interrogating", or worse threatening the clueless little girl to get at said head, doesn't speak much to the "honor" of said organization. It would be a cool setup for Mugi going all Liam N...

Yikes. If you have any interest in hearing someone's side of the story, you don't typically gag them. I am really hoping the Reservoir Dogs vibe I am getting here is just my own paranoia and not indicative of the direction this is actually going. And if Miho walks out now for yet more "how much can ...
