Re: [TTDP 010] I am not one to talk

Chokage's face - the direction she was looking at, and her ears lifting up, something she normally avoids doing - tells me the message wasn't on her phone. She was hearing it. I think those magnificent ears, tamped down with implants though they be, are hearing a focused audio rig, maybe also at ver...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

I definitely remember someone (Fred himself?) posting that there was no way Megumi could actually be a nine-tails because it would significantly affect future aspects of the story. Maybe she just doesn’t realize what she is until it becomes relevant at some point? And...wait...that’s the end of the...

Re: [1581] can't make it any worse

Now I'm stuck on a question: what ringtone did Fred have in mind when he drew this comic?

Re: [1564] Important

The real concern I have is these phone calls she intends to make. If she is going back into acting, she will indeed want Largo at her side: who else is gonna run over Dom with a lawn mower ? She is going to be calling Dom, so Largo needs to learn to be a good boy and say yes ma'am and no ma'am and ...

Re: [1564] Important

857 , 858 , and 859 and now this. Largo and Erika's game may seem codependent and unhealthy, but Memi could see its worth . Erika can see it now. And she may have also been having emotional flashbacks to Hitoshi's "I'm holding you back" breakup. She's not giving up this time. (I'm not comparing Hit...

Re: [1563] That performance

Well, the real upshot of this all is that in order to finish Moeko's story Erika will need to sign the contract that Dom will offer her. Yup.... Is that what Largo meant? That Erika is a powerful idol, always will be, and that she is doomed to return to that life even if he does run over Dom with a...

Oh, gods. Misamachi nearly lost Tokyo the last time Erika and Miho's orbits crossed. Now Erika has a mandate from an MG and a freaking wand. And Largo will be somehow involved.

That town's gonna get chunked.

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

At first, I had thought that the last panel could be Erika thinking out loud in the third person, but the direction of the speech bubble suggests otherwise. So, a milestone in the Megatokyo story, right up there with the power lines and Piro's panic . Is Erika going to go back to acting now? What ma...

So, an actress who gave a character life is now going to see the character in person? Won't that cause some kind of metaphysical feedback loop thingy? In normal circumstances, Riraka probably wouldn't have sent Erika to Moeko's room if that were the case, but there's meds involved. Even if not, it c...

Re: [1554] the parts needed

The more things change, the more they stay the same. When Megumi flubs with an obvious "They were here but they aren't here anymore!", Ping accepts and that's that. She's undergoing change before our eyes, yet still the sweet Ping that we hope never changes.

I understand the logic behind the "megatokyo itself is a game" theory, especially with the existence of endgames, comics like [1068] , and some of the things vis regularly says. However, I gotta say: I really dislike it. MT is full of characters who are real. Their feelings matter; their decisions ...

Wow. Junko is super defensive about being grabbed and detained. Ashe's approach was physical, but it conveyed "don't go yet". In response, Junko's face was not simply anger, but a mix of rage and panic. Not just a push-back and a slap, but a roundhouse and a groin kick . Junko must have been handled...

Random thoughts - -He talks like he's lead designer on Ping's project, which is interesting. Clearly he's ok with Piro's stewardship of Ping - ownership simply isn't the right word, not at this point. We can probably assume a tracking device, either hardware or software.

Re: [1545] Love

So, to have value, you must be loved or be a commodity? Fred did say in chat that certain dark aspects of human nature were going to be part of the story. (Mostly since November 2016) I wonder if we are seeing this now?

Or, I'm wrong and Ashe is probing the guy's intentions. Answer wisely, mister.
