Re: [1512] Which one

Yes! Piro makes a decision!

Although he still has to be told by Seraphim that it's OK to make a decision.

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

We've all been thinking about this from Piro's perspective. What about Kimiko's? She is offering Piro everything. She is offering herself: mind, heart, and body. And Piro is rejecting her. Even if he doesn't say so, even if his rejection comes in the form of indecision, it is still rejection. And th...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

I should like to point out that Piro is in fact remarkably composed and in control despite the fact that Kimi is really pushing all his buttons. She is sensual, sexy and extremely desirable A beautiful woman Piro is composed and while no James Bond he's got matters in hand and he will be making any...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

You know, we really know almost nothing about Piro, especially his sexuality. Most posters, including myself, have been making a lot of assumptions. The truth is almost anything is possible for Piro. For instance, I've known several men that didn't want to have sex until marriage, and turned down in...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

I have a new theory about Piro, and that is that he's been playing way too many VNs and taking them way to seriously. After all, Piro's tag line used to be that "he could win any game with any girl". But let's think about VN relationships. Normally, a player has to make every choice exactly right in...

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

That's an interesting idea I've seen being put forth here: up until now, Kimiko was playing the part of Miho, and that part included sex scenes. Piro could pick up on this on a somewhat subliminal level, and that was why he's been awkwardly trying to derail things. Now that Kimiko is going back to b...

Re: [1503] You two

I'm trying to figure out why Piro is cock-blocking himself so hard. When Megu first talks about a love hotel, he insists it's not right unless he pays, which he can't. Then he tries to talk Megu out of doing it all together. On the surface, this is ridiculous. At worst, he's going to get a few hours...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

"Moeko-chan was never healthy enough to do much of the magical girl stuffs".
So we have a magical girl who was very sick and managed to inspire a story that didn't rely on the character being sick to be immensely popular. Miho, are you listening?

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

Looking a the sparklogen detector (https://megatokyo.com/strip/1107) it looks like Yuki is kind of medium-grade, 7.3 on a scale that goes to 12.

There's a whole lot of interesting stuff here, but I think the most interesting is the throwaway line "Moeko's primary one, too!" I am hypothesizing that: There is a real Moeko, i.e. a Moeko that is a real-life Magical Girl In MT, all fictional MG (and other) shows have a real MG/person/entity behin...

May I point out that you are trying to apply physics to magical girls? I hypothesize that Yuki is, on a deep level, aware that she is in a web comic and structures thereof. In particular, she knows about framing and gutters, and things like physical laws, object permanence, etc. only really apply wi...

Re: [1493] Failure to Pants

And now if Yuki applies her typical ignorance of physics and anatomy and tries to put Koby's pants on at Yuki-speed ... let us have a moment of silence for the generations that may never be.

Fred, you must really like Kobayashi. You put the poor boy through *so* much.
