Re: [1577] cheating

I have some completely unjustified speculation.

The New Guy (does he have a name yet? Japanese for New Guy is Atarashī otoko) is under a similar constrainment curse as Megumi. Them falling in love will break each other's curse, resulting in an *extremely* interesting morning after.

Re: [1574] "crushin' me"

But who is handing Mugi the phone? Doesn't look like th3 N1nj4 (wrist too thin), or like one of the Nurse Joys (too many bandages on the hand).

Being a foxgirl: Okay. Being a murderess: Not okay.

This has a taste of "Men in Black".

He was in panel 7 last strip, too. I expect him to do something relevant soon.
And the strip before that, in the last panel. He's been getting more and more fascinated.

Re: [1571] fresh air

I have a completely unjustified headcanon that Megumi pissed off an extremely powerful kitsune and they cursed Megumi to never know romance.

Re: [1568] making it up

Now I'm wondering if Stability was behind Erica's breakup.

Miho gets involved in Girl Phase in a way that lets her re-tell her story. Stability sees this as a threat, with someone as powerful as Miho changing her story. So Stability decides to derail Girl Phase by wrecking Erica's life.

Why can't we see Yaku's face? Why isn't Yaku talking in a way that we can hear? It seems like Miho can hear Yaku just fine; it's just that we can't. Speculation: We are still in Moe-space. Largo, Erica, and Miho have identities in Moe-space; Yaku doesn't. Or perhaps in the new story line of 'Erica c...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

If Erika follows through with this, and puts the anime team back together to finish the story -- well, she won't be Erika any more. I think she could do it -- the power of Moeko's story still has critical resonance now, and the story of the voice actress who left and came back is going to be too goo...

Re: [1558] Getting through

I've been going through old strips, and cam across https://megatokyo.com/strip/278 Megatokyo has always had multiple parallel realities running side by side, depending on what an individual person can or wants to experience. We're just seeing a rather extreme example of that here. Largo doesn't care...

Re: [1551] A little rough

Being a monster is no less complicated than being a mtyhotypical person :) O think I just invented a word …..or you meant to say "mythological". Who knows? ;) Or perhaps "mythotypical": not one of the classes of mythological being, hence the assumed standard human type. See also "mythophobic".

Ping certainly nukes the Turing Test. If we want to say Ping isn't sentient, then it becomes an issue if Largo is sentient or not. Largo may be a bad example here.

You may be being a little hard on Dr. Gero. Consider: suppose you want to build a Ping. You'll need to understand how personalities work. Because we are human, we'll need to break human personalities down into component parts so we can simulate them. That's how humans think about things. Then we go ...
