Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Exactly cidjen . These forums are for discussion. What doesn’t work so well is when it’s used for some sort of team competition.

It also isn’t about me or my peculiar personality.

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Some people really need to get a life I originally used the screen name of White Knight to mock Largo, not because I hate him but because even from the beginning he had an organized crew of nuthuggers intent on shipping Erika x Largo and to a lesser degree Miho and Ping. None of the people I was twe...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

This scene is about Erika and Moeko though....if Erika just leaves then she will be in the very same place she was when she threw everything away and withdrew into a shell.... Heh...Largo saving her would be like taking the blue pill...go back to her safe, sad little existence as a clerk in a game s...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

It's really sweet, but Largo has the exact same chance as a 4 year old boy with a nerf bat trying to protect his mom from her abusive boyfriend.... It'd be heartbreaking and would only possibly work if Fred was going for the lulz like he did when Largo rickrolled the CoE and I simply cannot conceive...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

To be honest if it came down to having to snatch Erika AFAIK the only person nearby who'd have any chance of conceivably pulling it off would be Yuki. She's got the speed and is also of catastrophic level so she'd stand a chance of making it. Since Largo considers her to be his "pet" MG (which is a ...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

I just hope Largo will jump to Erika’s aid by simply grabbing her and hauling her out of that room because whatever he cannot see is clearly distressing his girlfriend. =( And yeah, Moeko is really twisted — agewise, socially, emotionally, like a child having to deal with a grown up body… She's a p...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Well we know that Kimko was a voice actor for eroge games....and it's not outside the realms of possibility that Erika has voiced a few of them back when she was starting .....

So she may well be well qualified to describe what she's seeing to Largo...not sure that's really a good idea :D

Re: [1558] Getting through

I've been going through old strips, and cam across https://megatokyo.com/strip/278 (snip) Piro might be in a lot of trouble if he was in Largo's place. Dunno, Piro's kind of blind about some things. Didn't see any of the paths until Miho dragged him into one (or gave explicit directions a'la "Shior...

Re: [1558] Getting through

Chaos and Order are not applicable to Moeko and the very nature of her powers constitute a tangible threat. She isn't like Raven in Snowcrash who happens to own a nuclear warhead that no one can figure out how to neutralize, Moeko can warp reality to say, make everyone in the TPCD be her friend and ...

Re: [1558] Getting through

I don't think she'd switch bodies as that'd basically put Erika in a coma from which she'd have no outlet not being and MG and then Moeko would have an unfamiliar body to deal with. Now she may well ride Erika like a Loa but I don't think she wants to actively possess her even if she can which may n...

Bingo Aube!

That's exactly what all of those strips were pointing toward, I suspect we haven't seen the end of revelations either.....

Not to be a prude, but It feels like the comic is turning into an HBO series.

Re: [1558] Getting through

This is reminding me of Kanon. Ayu is in a coma as well, but she is able to form a physical presence and interact with other people. So similar mechanic maybe? Although I am wondering why Largo isn't seeing it. So is this a closed communication between the girls, or is Largo deliberately not seeing...

Re: [1558] Getting through

Naw, Largo just wasn't invited to the meeting. Also what Moeko is doing is every bit as real as it gets and that's why she's such a danger as she could potentially end reality

Re: [1558] Getting through

Apart from my ongoing separate worlds theory (which I think this strip strongly supports), I think you guys have it backwards. Largo is not filtering out "reality", not is Moeko blinding him. She is dominating Erika, probably with the aid of the connection established by Girl Phase. Most of what we...

Re: [1558] Getting through

Oh for dawg sake...you really for one minute think that Largo would deliberately filter out what's happening when he's against the whole thing and is obviously antagonistic. Moeko has Erika inside a cozy little pocket universe where she can sit up and talk to Erika and Largo was not invited to the m...

Re: [1558] Getting through

Oh, and something else that strikes me as odd. Largo says, "I am filtering my perceptions." That's a strong hint that, at some level, he's aware of SEP or SER fields... and has deliberately invoked his for self-protection. Now that's the mind-blower. Fred packed an incredible amount into this strip...

SER Field: Somebody Else's Reality
Using the SCP sort of rating system Moeko is a ZK - CLASS entity meaning she has the potential to cause an end-of reality event

Yeah this is really dark but with a really cute smile and bewbs

As it happens Yuki has that potential as well
