Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Largo has a lot of flaws, but one positive trait of his that I admire is his sincere supportiveness to the people he cares about, and even people he barely knows. He seems like a dumb jerk on the surface, and maybe he is, but there is a big part of him that is just a genuinely sweet guy who wants t...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

I hope I can ask this without getting smacked but how old is Moeko? I got the impression that she, Rikia, and Meimi were contemporaries. Selected quotes from [1108] : Masamichi: <I need a report on the location of every identified EMGC in the country, now!!> Note: EMGC = Emergent Magical Girl Candi...

[1559] Be my eyes

Fred has posted the new comic to his Patreon . He'll post it to the main site and elsewhere probably tomorrow. Fred posted this message on Patreon along with the comic: Hey gang. Ok, same drill as the last comic (all the comics in this arc will be like this). Moeko's rather agressive physicality is ...

I think it's pretty clear from [1541] that she would like to wake up but cannot.

Not to be a prude, but It feels like the comic is turning into an HBO series.
And this would be a problem...why?
Well for one thing, I don't get HBO. :(

Re: [1558] Getting through

As to Stability, if they knew she was a reality manipulator, I suspect they would have eliminated her regardless of collateral damage. They haven't, so either they literally can't, or she kept that hidden. Or maybe Stability's own SEP field can't deal with that kind of power. As to knowing she's co...

Re: [1558] Getting through

I always had the impression Miho was a special case. Was there any point were it was implied that *all* magical girls are "powered" by their fans? Welcome Arent! No, that's inference on my part. We saw that the Analogue Support Facility [1271] (aka Notspital) was larger than needed for just Miho. A...

OK, if it's not in Erika's head, but Moeko is still in a coma, how is she moving & talking? Not disagreeing, just confused.
It's magic. And the connection that Moeko and Erika share because of the story.

Re: [1558] Getting through

Maybe Yuki is powered by the story of her mum? Granted, Meimi might not have been overly magical, but her story was universally liked (it inspired the Author so ...). It might have helped, but I don't think that would hold in general. If it did, then being a magical girl would be hereditary, and th...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

I am very curious what "the girl who inspired the whole 'Girl Phase' story" unpacks to in Erika's head. Does she actually know of the existence of real Magical Girls? I think she does. Erika seems to know Meimi reasonably well, and certainly knows about Meimi's five-fingered-discounts [673] . That'...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

Somethings thats been bugging me for a while, is Moeko based on a Magical Girl from IRL anime like the other known MG's in MT (Ririka, Nurse Angel Ririka, Cha-san, Akizukin ChaCha, The Sonada familiy, Saint Tail etc.), or is she an OC on Fred's part, or is that something we'll (maybe) discover late...

Re: Sounds like things STILL haven't been great....

I don't think anyone disagrees with what you said as you surmised, its just how the patreon says at 2000 bucks per month support he will give 4 comics per month, which is again misleading. Doing 4 comics a month is Fred's intention and his goal, not a guarantee. He is trying his best to meet that, ...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

Thinking geographically... Miho is not really Irish... either the pirates were, or the mansion she was sent to, was in Ireland. 19 century, maids etc. would not be surprising if she picked that up. Miho's home town may have been somewhere in England or Wales... Can you explain again why you don't t...

Very interesting. Erika with the nice bedside manner, and then the twist in the last panel. I like the lockout/tagout on the wand. OSHA would approve.

Re: One WIP Twitch thread to rule them all [SPOILERS]

Fred's part-time job has taken a lot more of his time than he had thought it would. This is the last week of that though, and he's very much looking forward to getting the comic moving again.
