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: [1558] Getting through

Taking a stab at how this all works in practice. Story -> CharacterAnalogue -> RealPerson -> Performance -> Fans So in this particular case, we have: TragicDyingGirl -> Miho -> Moeko -> Erika -> FanHorde but there's also: MagicalGirl -> ??? -> Ririka -> PrettyLittleBlondeGirl -> AnimeFans MagicalGr...

Re: [1556] A magical girl transformation sequence

The big question question is: Is Moeko taking over Erika or is Erika playing Moeko? My answer is: there's a difference? We've found out before https://megatokyo.com/strip/1519 that there's a pretty strong link between a magical girl / real thing / whatever and the actress that player her. There may ...

Re: [1553] Oops

I don't really know sign language so please forgive me if I am misinterpreting this, but in that last panel was Ashe trying to cut Megumi off from saying anything else about Piro and Kimiko? If so, I have a funny feeling that Ashe and Granny might be the only sensible ones in that room right now. I...

Re: [1553] Oops

I honestly can't imagine Fred letting Ping and whoever actually intrude on Kimi and Piro. I have a good imagination and a twisted sense of humor but I just feel vaguely horrified at the notion of that happening. Walking in on Piro right now is about the worst thing that could happen to him, so yes,...

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".

The only thing she does know is that she totally suffers from the 'forever alone' curse that effects all kitsune girls - in fact, in her case its almost comically bad :P That said, what tails? :P I have headcannon that she managed to piss off a *really* powerful kitsune that cursed her to never fin...

Re: [1550] Raging noises

I have a REALLY bad feeling about what actually happened in panel 3. Was he recording the discussion he had with Ashe? Or just taking a picture of her on the way across the street? I suspect that either he's got his next few data points for the Foxgirl edition of the EDS... It's a good point. DrGer...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

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. Say it becomes an issue if Erika is sentient or not. And I agree with a previous poster, Dr. Giro's real ethical test is going to come s...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

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 ...

Re: [1547] realistic girl architectures

Wait, this is interesting. Mr. research scientist doesn't know about Kitsune? He thinks those ears and tails are fashion accessories? So he is not as culturally or genre aware as I thought he was. I wonder what other things he has missed, and how might that affect his ability to program realistic b...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Remember, Junko's experience of the guy was very positive. My guess is that he spent a lot of time asking how Junko was, how she felt about her life, what her experience with other men was, etc. etc. He may have been one of the few people in Junko's life that at least appeared to care about her as a...

Re: [1545] Love

I've started wondering about Mugi and how she got estranged from her family. She's been described as a difficult child. My assumption was that the friction between Mugi and her family was because of her early sexual activity. But now we find that the family has a business line in prostitution. Maybe...

Re: [1545] Love

This has all been really harsh on Megumi. "What are you worth if no one loves you?" Megumi has been looking for a relationship, for love, and as far as we know has been unable to find any (the comic of Megumi being stood up, the way Megumi reacted to Junpei and Mugi). That's a pretty big question in...

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...

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).

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...

Junpei has apparently abandoned Honor in favor of the Code of Love. Maybe he's a M4j1kal Boi now.
