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...

Re: [1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

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.

Rather like Miho moving through the gaps in betwe...

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.

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...

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.

The moment Yaku said "you saved me" triggered it. Miho just became someone else's heroine. The universe's self-correction engine is firing on all cylinders.
