I'm pretty sure Dom and Ed are still single :shock:
True, but I hardly think either of them "scores high in empathy", let alone any loyalty to TPCD.
Obviously that was a joke.

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

In fact, I just realized how to do it too: set her up with a minder who is about her age, single, scores high in empathy, and is unquestioningly loyal to the TPCD. Bonus if he competes at a high amateur level in at least one martial art, but if he's TPCD, he has to be proficient in them, and I'm su...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

And as far as that last panel is concerned, truer words were never spoken...I think it's just possible that Miho may have some competition in the 'most pursued' category, depending on how dangerous, powerful, and/or uncontrollable a nine-tail is believed to be. Also, how the heck did she tie that r...

Re: Higher res old pages?

I can only remember the one page which compared Piro's and Largo's world view. The first one noticing cosplay and manga shops everywhere, the other seeing potential dangers, zombie spawning points and makeshift fearbots. Where there other similar pages for other characters? Sounds like NNM: reality...

Megumi is do adorable and caring. When she thinks of problems it's not herself she thinks of but other people. Even if they are idiots....
Maybe, but she also simply left Ashe alone.

Re: Higher res old pages?

Or unlearn, maybe, if our assumptions are incorrect. Although I would agree that Megumi wins the award for cutest AND bravest PoV. Whic...

Oh, come on, she has a loving family. She is healthy and otherwise fine. She is far from being alone.

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

I wonder if she knows what she is? Has she just popped her tails and ears out because she is too miserable to bother to maintain control or they just manifest because she's too miserable to be aware of them. Either way, it sucks to be her : ( (I wonder if there is someone who loves her, but who she...

Re: [TTDP 005] A Troubled Earth-Bunny Girl

Masamichi is sneakier than I gave him credit for. Probably from watching Meimi outsmart everyone while she was still a Magical Girl. To unpack that: Pretty obvious to me that he's showing her that her actions impact other people other than herself, and that those actions may end up hurting those pe...

I didnโ€™t take Megumi seriously when she teased Piro about a threesome, either. It was pretty clear she was just messing with him because he looked so out of his element.

(Holy crap, that was well over two years ago...)
Woah, I'm impressed how much you guys remember after such a long time.

Re: [TTDP 0003] Sentencing Guidelines

And the message is that cute foxgirls are much harder to manage than Zilla monsters which you can just shoot.

And the guy to be pitied here is Masamichi, who would rather take on a Zilla, instead of dealing with this dangerously cute foxgirl.

It's just a men in black spoof.

About managing dangerous Zilla monsters, which sometimes destroy half of megatokyo and sometimes take the form of a deceptively cute Foxgirl.
