Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

If Paarfi is right, then does that mean Kimiko is finally acting the way Fred wanted her to?

Wait... that's not literally lava, is it? This is Megatokyo, so I can't rule this possibility out.
Like I said, Ashe must hate that room. :lol:

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

That room looks like it's a pain in the neck for Ashe to keep clean. As for Kimiko, no more ambiguity. She wants Miho out of Piro's story, in the most effective way she knows how. The previous four comics suggest there is going to be an eventual meeting at The Foxhole of at least three parties: Kimi...

Re: [1508] Somewhere we haven't gone before

Ping is not programmed for "best friend" advice to a girlfriend, instead she is programmed to take on the role of a girl and then training boys on how to properly pursue a romance. I doubt very much that Sony had social training in mind for anyone's benefit. She may be a non-H model, but she's stil...

Re: [1507] "Being Yourself"

Ping's face also seems to be changing, looking more 'real', more like 'other girls', not just body size. Adjusting to real life examples, probably? Yes! Ping is becoming less of a otaku fantasy and more real because of her interactions with the real world (real as far as Megatokyo goes, of course)....

Tone and text are ambiguous here, but I think Junko realizes that Ping in kind of right. Users are users and playthings are playthings. Though, this may not be a user on the phone. Junko is blushing. That's not a face that says "oh, that client." Or, if it is a user, then maybe she and Ping can help...

Wonder if Kimiko is going to suggest that they log on to Endgames, then she will find out about Pirogoeth's 'little polygon bump'...? That reminds me: Fred has said that William Gibson, and in particular his novel Idoru, are one of his sources of inspiration. There is a scene in Idoru where two you...

Megumi does not look happy. I suppose this is not the shared Megumi/Mugi kitsune grandma that she's calling here, but her other grandma. Interesting. I think she's decided to be a little mean here. Her grandmother's is presumably a safe place to bring them, but it'll also probably put the kibosh on...

Re: [1500] Trapped on the inside

All the 500 mark comics have had something important about them, and this one is no different. There's certainly a direct link between 500 and 1500. 500 was our first inkling that there was a more complex story involving Erika's past and Otakudom in general, and that Erika's past wasn't done with h...

Oh wow. When she mentioned that she gave up her powers a couple comics ago, I was gonna assume she gave it up for her family. But this sounds a lot sadder.
Or to phrase it another way: Something
Very Sad.
Miho isn't strictly an MG, but did she do something similar?

Of course, Meimi could have made them go off all the time and Ririka doesn't know it, or is not admitting it.

Largo does have his moments when he can think strategically, and he knows Yuki. If he can also get her to notice his shush gesture - and she is looking in the right direction - she can get out of this with here anonymity intact. If she or Ririka blow it then she faces a life of fulfilling orders pos...

Paniky Yuki is adorable.

Re: [1491] Visiting the Family Shrine [part 2]

So, what I gather here is that Mugi tried to hide her true nature when she was a kid and became self-destructive because of it. If so, then Grams is right. Yaku needs to know what she is, warts and all. Of course, this has risks. Yaku could be scared into an even deeper fear of being Kitsune. She's ...

OK, so when Fred said that the comic is going in a dark direction, what he meant by "dark" was "bonkers". Love the character designs in this.
