Re: New To MEGATOKYO

Welcome. Glad to have you. Most discussion of the comic itself takes place in the Story Discussion section of this forum. We're typically talking about the latest comic that Fred has done, but we'd be happy to talk earlier ones as well. Feel free to join in. The 6 current books are mostly out of pri...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Requirements, very near the top if not #1 of which will be "acts like a regular girl". How to go about doing that will need to be fleshed out in a long series of meetings involving Product, the designers, QC, etc etc. In the real world, no doubt. In a megatokyo with zombies, zillas, magical girls, ...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

I don't consider it reasonable that he would be going out on EK dates without Sony's knowledge or approval; in that case he would need to shell out all the cash himself, and why would he bother doing that when Sony will cover all the expenses if things are done above-board? 1) He could well be doin...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Welcome, Nekopanzer. In 1508, Junko says he's a gentleman, so that refutes your description of him as "not (merely) a creeper paying a teenager to go on dates with him", Unless you believe being a gentleman is just cover for creepy behavior. Because, if you do, then I have a problem with your belief...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

I don't see where you are getting this information. Can you please provide a reference that shows (without ambiguity) that this is the correct interpretation of the previous comics? As far as I can tell, the old gentleman isn't a normal EK client and there is nothing to indicate that Junko doesn't ...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

You know, I feel kind of stupid for asking this but the last, like, 30 pages of so have been so full of different characters, some of whom I don't even recognize. So at risk of sounding stupid, who is this person, why is she talking to the old guy who hangs with Junko, and why does she use her phon...

Hi ho, folks. My first time here on this board after reading this comic for years. Welcome! Invisigoth appears generally to be quite perceptive about events occuring within the comic. Well Vis is one of the few people that Fred discusses his plot ideas with (along with Chemi and RayKremer). So he d...

Re: [1545] Love

To add to what vis and yl33 said, Ashe appears to deaf, based on the sign language [1504] and the fact that we haven't heard her speak yet. She also might be a drummer (or a fan), from the Zildjian tshirt she's wearing [Zildjian].

Re: WTF is going on here

Somebody complained about that thread, so Vis moved it. If that's a problem with some people, we can put it back. I don't have a problem in general with people being upset with the comic. It's supposed to make you "feel", and sometimes it can make you feel bad. Fred's style leaves a lot of things am...

I'm hoping this is a sign that the family medical problems are easing up some and he'll be able to start making some progress on the large shipping backlog. Thank you for patience. Please email Fred (or PM ...

Re: [1545] Love

Taking Ping’s ear blades, eye color and possibly multi-hued hair as some kind of fashion statement or cos-play do Megumi and her grandmother know Ping is a robot? As a human her word choice is certainly strange unless it was part of the cosplay. I think that's left deliberately ambiguous. It wouldn...

No. She needs to see herself as the angel. Ping is wonderful - but it doesn't matter how wonderful you are, without self-esteem, you'll never be able to seek out people who are worthy of you.
That's a big part of what I was trying to say. Obviously, I made a hash of it :P

Re: [1545] Love

Does Megumi have fox ears in that first panel?? Looks that way. Same as the last panel of the previous comic. I'm struggling to find the right words to say about this comic. Ping wants someone to love her, but then so do we all. Ping would fall for someone who "plays" with her and "makes the right ...
