Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Somebody surprising, somewhat expected, just not today 1507 Who seemingly is held in higher regard, but Ping apparently decides to substitute anyway 1508 There are indications whoever this guy is may know this is an EDS 1522 He seems to be letting her lead, but she's missing content 1523 She leaves ...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Uhm… I would still quote that same comic to point at a number of ninja that were dismissed by grandma with that same hand gesture and expression to take none other than Miho to — of all places — The Foxhole. And here we are… Indeed. Although it could be the flowers hovering and lack of the person w...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

1. This guy seems pretty unable to be surprised. What happens, largely depends on who he is and/or what Ping does. 2. Miho was taken to here and didn't want to stay or at the least not under the control of others. We might though imagine she's going to where Yaku is or something like it. If this guy...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

Her formative learning appears to have been in Megatokyo and out-of-game (at least non-PS2 style and depending on how you think of MT). In what Ping experienced from the parts she participated in, and then more broadening of horizons as that was extended in scope and participants. She's had multiple...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

According to Ibara, "Such a sad idea for an interface. Having to use a life-like doll to communicate emotional data." (1160) At least for what he knows about it, Ping seems to be meant to perform much the same function as Analogues. Making things real to the point the actual facts don't matter, we m...

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

There's been a pretty constant thread (and numbers of comments) that Ping has been doing a number of odd things that matches the oddness going on with her form. Out here, from a different view, us seeing more than either Junko or this guy (and now those at the Foxhole as well) have seen about Ping's...

Re: [1530] My problem

I don't think I understand her plan. why does she want him to want to have sex with her? Nobody can really understand it, because we kind of lack a solid clear idea what she's trying to accomplish why. Including the reason she sneakily took over for and is pretending to be Junko, or how well for ho...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

We saw that in 1240 Ibara says Miho is the source of a particularly potent and enduring story type. Is he correct, or, how correct is he. ??? We also have seen that all three of those guys are at least a bit off in what they know/think/think they know. Ed says she's the real thing in 819 then his su...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

There's apparently nothing specific in story that establishes there isn't at least one more Analogue around. Which then also there's nothing specific in stor...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Difficult to tell given the getup in 639 and the 14 year rw art style changes between that and 1473 certainly. But yes, aside from how Junpei refers etc to Head Ninja, whoever that is seems taller and larger than Junpei is. The eyes don't seem the same as our claimed Clan Leader Ninja either. Or may...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Has Tohya Miho been vanished without her wanting to be, by forces and mechanisms more powerful than the real thing, in whatever state it is in right now. However the Ninja Clan Matriarch and Yakugashi fit into it all. Yet, apparently this is simply only the sort of thing that happens when you stash ...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

What it looks like, mostly. At this moment in time, both the bound Yaku and restrained Miho are being absconded by Ninja, Yaku slowly and Miho quickly, on the orders of the clan matriarch. Yaku is going to help the clan leader determine why a descendant of an existing adversary/target has designs up...

It's a more brief form of ta-ta. (informal early 1800s unknown origin, and so going by the language-speaking rule could mean she is actually English) Goodbye, toodles, l8rz.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

It is an shrubbery. Although come to think of it, foxes taking on human form can look like anything they want to allegedly, so why not Ninja doing the same sort of thing. Unless this is like the beef with Pirates. Or how much Mugi's family is hybrid versus straight up old school mystical magical leg...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

One might imagine the real thing is no role. Whatever anyone thinks about Miho appears to be all about their opinions and perceptions, but she's clearly been often able to match those expectations, be that purpose or accident, towards a goal or otherwise. So it's probably not so odd to believe that ...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

Might seem being dismissive wouldn't work, especially if as appears true Miho is only vulnerable when she wants to seem so. When it all looks real it's difficult to tell when it isn't, might be the way to put it. In a lot of ways it continues to smell like a setup. This hasn't been the first time En...

Aside from the true virtuality in a mundane sense; as we probably know, the causes exist inside the pathways of the authors, which then become effects to the observers. The whole process of creating and consuming, a frequent subject ins...

Whoever she is, she's got at least three ninja that she's in command of or that work for her.

Re: [1527] Nature of the relationship

Yaku did call and Junpei did arrive, but that was at hospital and before, when it seemed to fit better. Here, if you've got a ninja already (whoever and however old Enjii actually is) and Miho (if she still has powers) is also with you, what else would you need. Assuming anyone really wants to or ne...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Certainly an author doesn't need to have a fully developed background or even any answers at all before something happens, regardless if the characters are guiding it to some extent or not. The Horde seems scary, but so far hasn't as far as we've seen killed anyone. Maybe at the school that was luck...
