Re: WTF is going on here

Actually I agree with the quote from Tron Legacy where Kevin Flynn says that the Isos were smart but very naive. I echoed that sentiment in my post in the comic 1545 thread.

Re: [1545] Love

I know that some are a bit uncomfortable with the current situation in regard to Ping, but I see this situation as a point where she grows as a person. Like many readers I have sort of drawn a parallel between Ping and Lt. Cmdr. Data on Star Trek. Both are sentient advanced androids whose greatest d...

Re: WTF is going on here

I have no issues with it being moved. Some of the accusations were way off base. I am all for intelligent discussions about subjects in MT that some may feel uncomfortable with, but that thread devolved into plain and simple flaming. Fred does probably have some sort of grand plan somewhere in the b...

WTF is going on here

The flame war that just got pulled off is really getting ridiculous. Yeah the current story arc may raise some eyebrows, and has brought up some reasonable discussion but the flame war started by the user masquerading as im done was uncalled for. This is not a place for people who spout political co...

Re: [1544]-"Too Much Information"

Well as for the weird plushie, while Fred was drawing I asked about it and he said that it was a physical manifestation of the Kitsune curse. Poor Ping looks like she is about to blow a fuse due to all the information given to her by Grandma. It almost reminds me of Norman in the Star Trek episode I...

Re: [1543] value

@ Drunkensailor, I agree that one of the issues is that Ping sees herself as an advanced prototype for an EDS accessory a everyone who is unaware of what she really is judges her as a human female. The other point is that Ping has evolved into an sentient machine and it appears that her base program...

Re: [1539] Please don't

So there are wilderness areas in Tokyo! There seems to be a plethora of skyscrapers on their skylines though and no western type castles... Still, more possible than I thought it was. Now, to find one with a river, a castle on the skyline, and no sky scrapers... Probably further away. Actually the ...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

That's pretty good, I know that sometimes translations can be difficult. I sometimes run into that with translations of stuff from english to spanish. You sometimes need reword things to maintain the proper context. I remember one time on the old IMDB message boards a German user asked for a clarifi...

Re: [1537] an answer

Oh man, Junpei is pissed off big time. He made one hell of an entrance, I wonder if his current emotional state has supercharged his Ninja abilities. He heard the distress call from the daughter of the woman that he is in love with and made a couple of super Ninja leaps and trashed the gathered Ninj...

Re: [1536] Catching your breath

Great observation. Ninja are highly capable operators however their greatest strength lies in intelligence gathering. All the files on Miho would show a fairly high threat level but things like the destruction of the hospital can be written off to the exuberance of the guns for hire getting in thei...

Re: [1536] Catching your breath

I really think that Ninja Grams is definitely scared. She has realized that she has bitten off more than she can chew. It turns out that Miho is more than a match for her and her Ninjas. Hopefully Junpei's super Ninja hearing will pickup Yaku's call for help and after making a few Ninja super leaps ...

Going on the possibility that Junpei's Grandma might be Head Ninja, if he knew that she is Head Ninja would he not address her as a respected family elder with something like Honored Grandmother? Now with the current situation, I see Yaku being used as bait to bring her Grandmother out of hiding. I ...

No, it means that GPS in Megatokyo is accurate to within 6 inches.
Well it is possible that Ping may have access to a military grade GPS transponder.
She's using Junko's phone...
Maybe she is up linking to the phone? (Thought I might toss that idea out there)

She’s obviously uncomfortable. I think it's still an open question to what extent her discomfort is due to him (if he does turn out to be just a creep client) or whether it's "self-inflcited" (if he's not a creep client, and thus not fitting into any of her expected scenario paths).
