@cidjen

Holy crap, nice catch.

I’m sure someone looked it up at the time, but it was so long ago that I didn’t remember that detail.

Re: [1513] - "Play"

@cidjen

Those are bigger issues, not loose ends that can be wrapped up to end a chapter. Megatokyo will be around for years to come, to deal with questions like the ones you’ve brought up.

I don’t see Piro leaving Japan anytime soon, anyway. Especially not if he does well at Lockart.

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Yanno, this would probably be the appropriate point to end the chapter... ...but what do I know? I'm just a reader. I’m also just a (slightly obsessed) reader, but I’ve noticed that each story chapter leaves all the main/secondary storylines at a point that can be picked back up in a few hours or d...

Dom was targeting Erika and Kimiko, not Miho. He wasn’t interested in “a tragic piece of leftover 3vil.” https://megatokyo.com/strip/1062 Junko’s father (working for Nintendo) is the one who seemed interested in monetizing Miho’s popularity now that her story might be changing. https://megatokyo.com...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Sheesh. The least Seraphim could do while she’s in big mode is get the couple some clothes.

Totally deserves butt herpes.

I can only be 72.3% sure, but I think that it’s scene change time. Who wants to guess where Fred might take us next?

Re: [1512] Which one

@Roamer Let’s convince Fred to dress Largo up in one of Erika’s Magical Moe-Bo outfits and find out. He did express interest in learning her creepy skill. Seriously though, except as a tool of misdirection, clothes don’t have much to do with an average Megatokyo citizen’s abilities, or even a magica...

I'm pretty sure that Largo's alleged mentoring consist of nothing more than advise on some fashion accessories (wear sensible gear) and of course some very bad advise. After all he was clueless as to the capabilities of Magical Girls in comparison to a Rent'a'Zilla. If anything Largo would fall und...

Re: [1512] Which one

Interesting thoughts about Endgames. This Miho is technically different than the one who got permabanned, since she died and was resurrected in a slightly altered form. How does that parse with the game’s ToS? (by different form, I mean that this time she seems to have been “called back” by Ping and...

Re: [1512] Which one

I could see it going the way Ray Kremer suggested: that Piro might play out a relationship with Kimiko so he can grow enough as a person to face what happened with Miho. That would certainly provide a story path: the two of them navigating Kimiko’s career as an idol while Piro works as an artist at ...

You broke me with the Anna Millers links, iffy. My husband hadn’t gone through puberty yet when those strips were posted (he’s a couple of years younger than me).

Re: [1512] Which one

This is the kind of thing where sometimes you need to ignore your conscience (even if she's in big mode) and do what you feel. It’s not just his conscience, though. Almost everyone in Megatokyo has been pushing Piro to choose Kimiko all along. Let’s see... - Seraphim - Largo - Erika - Ryoya and the...

...huh. Well, I’m disappointed, but I’m sure longtime fans of Piro/Kimiko are screaming in joy, so that’s a positive. Maybe the majority had it right all along. We never see Piro’s eyes after he starts stripping down, which usually means some kind of unhappy emotion, but shouldn’t he be happy about ...

I was really looking forward to this update! Fred, you did a masterful job of conveying choice and consent through body language alone. Disclaimer: I’m firmly in Paarfi’s camp regarding Kimiko-Piro-Miho relations, so that bias influences how I view each comic. It was a nice touch that Kimiko shut Pi...

I wonder if Kimiko’s switched back to being the protagonist, then? Since it looks less and less likely that Piro’s going to do anything but let himself be moved around by circumstances.

On the other hand, I think these last two comics have shown something that is still missing from Piro and Miho's relationship. Yes the smexytimes, but even more so just a sense of fun. Piro and Miho are intimate in other ways, but have not yet got over the hurt and lack of understanding yet, and th...

I (sort of) called it! Kimiko was acting as Miho the whole time!

Also, regarding the room, what happens to people’s clothes once they’ve removed them in a frenzy of sexual arousal? How many guests have been stuck naked in there, waiting for staff to bring them new clothes because the old ones burned up and the guests can’t leave the room otherwise?

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

All this within less than 24 hours. Maybe less than 12. Definitely fewer than 12 hours since Miho woke up from surgery, by my rough calculations. A LOT of things happen simultaneously. If we look at it primarily from Piro’s point of view: - Piro finds Miho awake, talks with her, and is kicked out o...
