Re: [1536] Catching your breath

Uh oh, Yaku just called called out for the Ninja in love with her mom. That could bring Junpei, but I get the feeling a magical girl just might make her appearance, since love's like rocket fuel for them. Magical girls are probably the only one who can go toe-to-toe with analogues like Miho. The Nin...

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

So are we sure that was Miho who leveled the ninjas? I don't recall seeing a flower in her hair. And one of the ninjas in panel 7 seems to have scrawled an 'S' on the ground. Perhaps this was someone else? If it is Miho, then it looks like she's found her inner m0h, and is looking to take over the s...

it seems that Ping seems to have compartmentalized sex and love as two separate objects in her coding. Perhaps Junko is rubbing off on her more than we thought.

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

I'm not sure how to take that last strip. Fred did a great job of adding subtle, emotional undercurrents that I can feel as I read, but can't describe. The past couple of interactions could be interpreted a couple of different ways - awkward, wistful, want-yet-not-want. But right now I feel both Kim...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

Regardless of long-term emotions, there are 20-something hormones to consider. They should be running like freight train about now, and in particular running over anything like logical thought. <snip> Like I said, I really doubt if Fred is taking the story this way, but Piro is acting like an asexu...

Re: [1507] "Being Yourself"

So from the dialogue, I guess we are to assume that Junko is still doing the Enjo Kosai thing? Though this contact looks to be someone that she may have feelings for (or usually wants to do something that embarasses her). Since Ping can change her appearance based on the user, I wonder what happens ...

Re: [1505] I will take care of mom

And I honestly don't think Yaku has a dog in the PxK/PxM shipfight... she's got her own worries. What I'm thinking is - she's not worrying about any of Piro, Miho, or Kimiko. What she want's to ask Junpei is if he has honourable intentions regarding dating her mom. She's probably seen several boyfr...

I'm not sure how much of it has to do with hormones and how much has to do with adrenaline. In the aftermath of a high-stress situation the mix can be quite volatile. Poor Megumi, vainly trying to get their attention. Her expression I read as "Really!? I'm right here!" But yeah, her grandmother shou...

Re: [1500] Trapped on the inside

So in MT, the Magical Girl anime shows are based on actual Magical Girls, albeit glamourized and modified to fit into existing tropes? Wow, I'm imaging MT reality folding in on itself trying to wrap my brain around this revelation.

Re: [1494] Stay Here

I'm more concerned about what effect knowing that Yutaka's mom is hurt is having on Yuki's psyche. If she learns that Miho was responsible, is there a chance she could go dark (a la Madoka Majica)?

Re: [1491] Visiting the Family Shrine [part 2]

The tension and animosity in that confrontation was palpable. No child likes to see familial conflict. Grams isn't helping Yaku-chan come to terms with herself, more like she's going to give the kid even more of a complex. I see generational differences here. Hopefully we get to meet Mugi's mom soon...

That was a pleasant surprise. I could really get into the flow of this comic. The interactions between Mugi and Yakugashi seemed very natural and it gives us a better idea of how they interact with each other than the few snippets of comics we have seen them in. So I guess Grandmas are the most powe...

Definitely a mode change, Teddy. Different eyes, different hair, different bust size (to quote Constanza, "there was shrinkage").

You know, I was just looking back at Miho's appearance at the beginning of MT. Look at how she was drawn: calm, unperturbed, in control... even her fainting spells only had a moment of surprise before the mask settled back down. The first chink we see in her emotional armour is during her interactio...
