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

Progress update. Sarah's father is doing somewhat better, which is a relief. Fred is likely going to be spending a lot of time away from home for the near future, but it looks like he will be able to make progress on comics again. He tried Twitch streaming the other day, but the DSL he had available...

Re: archive.forums.megatokyo not accessible

Apparently we do have an SQL dump of the old forum. There was some discussion about whether to set it up again like before or try to merge the posts into this forum; as well as discussion on who could and would be willing to do the work to make that happen, and whether we needed to start involving n...

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

For those who don't follow Fred's twitter. Sarah's father had medical problems late last year that left him struggling to walk. A week or two ago, things took a more serious turn for the worse. I expect the next comic (and everything else) is going to be delayed while they deal with this latest cris...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

The Made In Abyss manga made me angry. Such terrific world that could have been explored for years. But it's like he had no idea what to do with it, so he fell back on abuse and loli porn instead. What an incredible waste.

Re: [1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

Yaku will write it, but someone is going to have to go to the Ninja compound to retrieve her glasses and bag first.. You sure? What's her qualifications? Well, it helps that she's already started work on it [1516] . Though she may get some help from Sayuri, who's still friends with Erika and was on...

Re: [1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

Player Moeko has left the game. Yeah. I THINK we'll find that Moeko is still there in bed, alive, and in a coma. It's just her talking to Erika via their story connection and whatnot that is over. Maybe her passing the torch (or the wand) made her unable to keep doing that. Maybe she'd finished say...

Re: VNsNow

Paarfi, I don't know about you, but the article is a bit unfair to Fred, don'tcha think? It's not pleasant to read, and I do have a few quibbles, especially with some of what is said and implied in the final third. But I thought most of it was as reasonably fair-minded as could be expected for a pr...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

How does Miho factor into this? When Moeko recently appeared in her dying vision as a little girl in a nightgown, she yelled something like “You had so much life, you gave some of it to me!” So...how did that work, exactly? I'll take a stab at that, though I'm not totally sure I'm right here. Like ...

Can't Fred post it here himself? I mean, does he even bother visiting the forums? Fred does visit the story discussion threads a couple of times after he posts a comic. He likes to see if people are getting what he had tried to say. He has posted to these threads before, but that's pretty rare. Thi...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

I think I'm a bit confused by panel 3: so Moeko first saw the story when her mother played it on their VHS (?), then she later became the idol, then fell into a coma and Erica became the idol? Who was the idol that Moeko saw? Or am I misunderstanding things? Moeko is a real magical girl, just like ...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

I have always greatly admired CS Lewis's defense of fairy tales and children's literature. I think, had he lived long enough to know of them, he'd have felt the same about magical girls. You don't have to give up little girl stuff when you become a big girl, Moeko. Never stop dreaming. My defence co...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

Hmm. Is “out here” all of MegaTokyo? What happens when Moeko puts it away for good? Does the world lose another sad, dying girl? Or does it stop like a finished game, sitting on a shelf? Well, for Moeko herself, the second. For everyone else, the first. In some ways, Moeko is a mirror image of Miho...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

Yup, looks that way. Not as a full-out anime, perhaps. Those take scheduling and money and such. Erika still has people in the industry like Sayuri who like her, but I imagine she ticked off a bunch of others with the way she quit before. But maybe a full-out anime isn't required to tell the rest of...

Ya know, that's pretty good for 16. Heck of a lot better than I could have done. I think you really captured the style of Fred's character art from those years.
