Re: [1548] the less appealing parts of her personality

Kotone isn't the one that is colorblind. The protagonist is. IE, the Player. Which would mean the game is going to be drawn mainly in black and white (pencil drawn perhaps? ;) ) Kotone is describes as "A girl of nothing but grays..." This ties in with the Player's colorblindness. A colorblind Playe...

Re: [1547] realistic girl architectures

Well, according to 106 , Ping was supposed to "become an amalgamation of all the girls in the dating simulations and visual novels", but she was never used to play the EDS games (unless Miho did during their sleep-over) so her only experience comes from the real girls that she has been exposed to.

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Pff. Nothing Fred does is without ambiguity. But as Haku said, it's based mainly on Junko's reaction in [1508] . She's not going to get that excited or defend old guy like that if she was meeting him for another interview about what it's like to be a teenage girl. She's acting like this is a date, ...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

The old guy was Junko's "subsidized dating" date that she and Ping were discussing in [1508] . Ping stepped in and replaced Junko on the date, which left him here for Ashe to confront. This comic's twist shows us that the old guy is not (merely) a creeper paying a teenager to go on dates with him, ...

Re: A Very Perilous Thread – The Void! The Laws of Physics! The Kitsune! T3h G4m3!

Well... poopie. Well, I already had it figured out long ago that MegaTokyo was a persistent MMORPG with a combination of AI and RPCs with certain RPCs as moderators and admins. Similar to .HACK but with elements of SecondLife that allow an RPC to build whatever they want (the default build tool bei...

Re: [1543] value

That being said... if Megumi is a kitsune, then her valued mother mentioned in the last panel must also be, and thus Megumi's grandmother here (thus revealed as her maternal grandmother) must be as well. That would mean Megumi and her grandmother are hiding it, while (for example) Ashe and, more ob...

Re: [1543] value

...then Megumi's only relation to Mugi is through their (mundane) fathers, and Megumi would have no kitsune in her at all. Unless both brothers married the prospective (related?) women, then the fact that Megumi and Mugi have the same surname would indicate that they received that surname from thei...

Re: [1543] value

there's no indication that Megumi is hiding tails nor that she ever had any tails to be noticed by her family There is equally no indication that she isn't or that her family isn't already aware that she does. A kitsune wouldn't necessarily hide their tails from their kitsune family. They might wis...

For one thing, a kitsune with three or more tails can actually hide her tails and her ears (to varying degrees of success).

Re: [1543] value

Okay, this is what I have determined about Mugi's Obasama - In MT, Kitsune (foxgirls) are born with what ever number of tails they have, be it one or nine. Obasama kitsune was born with 8 tails, thus Obasama ninja calls her '8 tails'. But now she has 9 tails because 'that sort of thing' happened in ...

Also, the grandmother kitsune is an 8-tail She's got everybody fooled. She's been magically hiding that 9th tail so people like Ninjagram will underestimate her.

Considering that maldrul (just to name one) catches every emotive twitch in Megumi's bow that is the least bit fox-ear-like, I'd say it would be pretty unlikely for the Collective as a whole to miss something as big as that. 8-)
