Re: [1512] Which one

We...could just ask Fred? It’s a minor detail, not a significant plot point. I've been letting this just go. I appreciate a good nerd argument, and I know how fun they can be. Sometimes the arguing is more fun than knowing the real answer, and I try to be sensitive to that. But as NinjaDefenestrato...

Re: The Visual Novel

No not currently dying although was in a bad car accident and also hit by a car as a pedestrian recently. I am currently fighting a legal battle that could very well land me up homeless and if that happens I won't be able to play this game if it does ever come out. Wow. Sorry to hear that. I had a ...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

I personally never considered Miho a viable option [...]. Isn't she still a high school student? (@Paarfi actually told me to not go that route ;) so I won't. and I discourage you too :) ) I'm just asking that we don't start the whole "age of consent in Japan" discussion again. It never ends well, ...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Someone mentioned Kimi showing pain in panel 2, I am not so sure about that, it could just be she is cold, or maybe is wondering what the hell she is going to do with her hair. And she sure looks happy to see Piro in panel 5. I think it's that she had given Piro an out and was afraid he might actua...

[Your Input Wanted] Thread Timing/Organization

After some discussion in the last comic thread, I'm looking for input on how best to handle new story discussion threads. We have a more diverse group here than we used to. There are: 1) People who check out the Twitch stream (live or recorded) and know what the next comic is looking like. 2) People...

Re: [1512] Which one

If no one is allowed to mention even what they perceive as the mood of the next comic, because they have seen it, then the forum discussion with the likes of me really dies out. I understand. But there are a lot of forum folks here who do not check the Twitch stream and would prefer not to be spoil...

Re: [1512] Which one

Hope this isn't taboo on the forums, but looking at twitch recordings It would be a good thing, please, if people did not spoiler the upcoming comic in the forum, at least until it has been posted to patreon. It has happened before, not badly and not often, and I've just let it slide. But to be mor...

Re: [1512] Which one

It also improves my impression of Masamichi - not only did he survive the experience more or less unscathed, but he's determined to see that Yuki takes as little damage from her own learning curve as he can possibly arrange. Which may be why he's willing to have Largo around her. Largo's a first cl...

Re: [1512] Which one

Next comic will cut to Miho at Ninja compound singing quietly to herself.

Where Oh where are you tonight
Why did you leave me here all alone
I searched the world over and thought I'd found true love
You met another and pffft you was gone.

Piro loves Miho, and Kimiko supports this (what you called "paarfi's camp"
I haven't given up the fight! PxM will yet triumph! :D

Fortunately, I'm also perfectly ok with being wrong. I enjoy the story no matter where it takes Fred. And it wouldn't be much fun if it were totally predictable. :P

Oh noes! Kimiko forgot to stretch first. [727] Why does it have to be a pairing? Why can't it just be adults doing adult things? You have a point. But we've come to care for these people, and it's not wrong to be rooting for more than just a hookup. Edit to add: My impression is that he's not too pl...

I was wondering if it might be Seraphim's sister.
I'm pretty sure it's not. Fred abandoned the seraphim sisters things years ago. I could be wrong, but I don't think he'd bring it back.

Hmm. Well, for a guy stripping down and heading into a bathroom where a beautiful girl is waiting for smexytimes, Piro sure doesn't seem all that happy about it. <yodaVoice>Conflicted, he is</yodaVoice> That last line says a lot too, I think. His love for Miho in Endgames and over IRC wasn't any les...

Re: The Visual Novel

I don't think there was a deliberate anything that happened here- no one could have expected the amount of money that came in and I think a lot of the promises came with overexcitement and the belief that they'd have the resources to do more things with more money. This is entirely correct. of why ...

I have to wonder what Paarfi meant exactly when he said that and why he felt the plug should be pulled vs. trying a different approach. Ok, it's a fair question. Fred has said that he's looking at making changes to the current approach by simplifying the artwork resources needed. Let me describe a ...

So Paarfi, are we going to get an update on where the money went? You've been dodging questions on that throughout this thread and it's the main question being asked in here.

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Well, from my perspective (and I know a lot of folks will disagree), that turned out about as well as it could have. Kimiko heard the "no" that Piro couldn't say straight out, and she not only understood and respected it, she ran with it. She turned his confused mumblings into the equivalent of "go ...
