Reminds me of Blake from RWBY that hid cat's ears under a bow.

Re: [1541] Something to say to you

In Megatokyo, stories have power. Or more specifically, stories have fans, and that fandom generates power. One use of this power is to keep the stories themselves, and the focal points of the story, alive. The power of story has been keeping Miho alive for about a century, and also allows her to do...

Re: [1540] alone?

Moeko makes sense but the hair doesn't match... Except Liminaut I believe is talking about the actual Moeko, whom we haven't seen at all before this, not the "representation" played by Erika (which we have seen in various forms). We've had explicit reference recently of Stability making changes, ev...

do we have a picture of Miho & Piro's kid in Endgames?
The little boy with the long hair in the middle of panel 4 [1345].
So I'm not seeing 'dark hair with white forelock', more like 'light hair'.

Having The Kid here be from Endgames would have been pretty bent (in a good way).

That fact that Miho knows she is dying is nothing?
Nothing that would tell us who the kid is.

I have a really stoooopid idea .... but I think the little girl is Moeko. The MG that Erica used to play. We know that Moeko is still alive but in a coma (https://megatokyo.com/strip/1500) The little girl has a wand, indicating a magical girl. She also says "I should punish you", which is pretty clo...

Re: [1536] Catching your breath

Well, that's one way to make sure Piro and Kimiko have enough time together.

More rampant speculation: Miho's exhaustion is still coming from her connection to Kimiko. Kimiko may want to do the good endings when she gets back to the studio.

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

Yes, it's almost certain that Miho took out all the Ninjas, but right now I find it very amusing to think that Mr. Loafers took them out. Completely unwarranted random thought: Ninjas exist in order to keep stories from getting out of control, so they have absolutely no power over a storyless mook. ...

Maybe her best course would be to go to the hotel and recruit Piro's help? I'm not sure how much good Piro would be. Ping, on the other hand ... . Especially if they can grab Yuki while they are at it. Not to mention Yaku. She tries very hard not to be fox-kin, but now would be a good time to turn ...

I'm not sure N1nj4Gr4n realizes who she is dealing with. Miho can wreck the whole N1nj4 cl4n with one selfie. "Yoo-Hoo! Horde! Here I am!" on the front porch of the big house.

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

N1nj4Grrl got up in Yaku's grill when Yaku couldn't remember Junpei's name. I'm guessing that's the 'ol.d story' -- treating ninja as faceless, nameless objects instead of as real people. N1nj4Grrl doesn't like that.

Re: [1527] Nature of the relationship

Catty Miho is catty.

Interesting how N1nj4Grrl divulges nothing of the relationship between her and Junpei.

A kitsune/n1nj4 multiclass has a lot of possibilities. Has there ever been an anime of this?

Is "Oi, NINJA!" a generic ninja-summoning call and the nearest one fields it?

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I will say the sentence construction "That's not something I'd do!" is very interesting. It's the way one would talk about a character in a story that one really doesn't have a lot of control over. That way of talking about herself is appropriate for Miho, if Miho was trapped in a story that she had...

I agree that Piro my not be making the right decisions under duress.

No, it's not fair. Miho has spent the last century not finding love and not having that choice, and now Kimiko is getting the good stuff and rather literally rubbing Miho's face and other body parts in it. Miho is feeling all the stuff her story kept from her this last century and in a way where Mi...
