Re: [1558] Getting through

Let me fall back to MMO mechanics. In the open world she's in a coma but she can bend reality to create instance where she is capable of moving and interacting and she can bring others with whom she has a strong connection into that pocket universe. Rather like Miho moving through the gaps in betwe...

Re: [1558] Getting through

Wow.

Bravo, Fred. More of the the magnificent meta mania that is Megatokyo in one marvelous comic than in many chapters combined.

Also, boobies.

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...

Re: [1555] Go see her

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.

Yeah, I kind of forgot about Piro and Kimiko, too. And the Miho horde who might or might not twig on Kimiko and reassemble at The Foxhole. And that The Foxhole is now a focus of anger for the Ninja clan. And the fact that Junko has never met Piro. (She has, however briefly met Kimiko, when she tried...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

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 ...

Re: [1551] A little rough

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...

Re: [1548] the less appealing parts of her personality

Damn, this guy pisses me off. He sees people as things to be reverse engineered. The "twinges to the heart" aspects of her personality are born of a young girl's painful home environment and he only sees it as a thing to be emulated for profit. Fucking narcissist.

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. I'll bet Kimiko could get s...

He's been seeing Junko to use her as part of Ping's design? No wonder he seemed different from her other clients to her.

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.

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

Ah, how nice of the ninjas to show up. They have surely brought a variety of sharp implements for Miho to take from them.

She's writing one hell of a bad ass character for herself. Either the Megatokyo universe eventually unravels, or it rights itself in some freaky way.
