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

I wonder if there's a paranoia-to-age correlation among the forumites? They told you, didn't they? They're always watching. I warned everyone, but did people listen? No! The fools! You'll all see I was right. You'll see! :ph34r: *goes to add more aluminum foil to hat and search the cat box for list...

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.

Even if his total number of hours working at real jobs (as opposed to Megatokyo) is a reasonable number, the bus-driving has to wear him out -- the little ones will wear you o...

Folks, please. We're all friends here. It's ok to want more comics. Everybody does, including Fred. It's wonderful that so many people still support Fred and MT despite all the problems. It's less wonderful that some people get very angry at Fred, as if them yelling about it will somehow change the ...

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.

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

Is going back into architecture really that far out of reach for him? Shouldn't he have friends or colleagues still active in the field who'd be able to vouch for him based on his past work? I'm kind of confused on why Fred is so convinced that he can't do it anymore. This suggestion has been made ...

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

Okay, if things are genuinely that bad, than Fred should probably consider putting MegaTokyo on long-term hiatus and returning full-time to the world of corporate graphic design. Fred never really did corporate graphic design as far as I know. He was an architect before going full-time with the com...

When we saw Moeko before https://megatokyo.com/strip/1540 Wait, THAT was Moeko? (I was working far too many hours when that sequence came out). Ok, I'm probably wrong about my theory if that's actually her personality. Sure doesn't seem like the girl that Ririka was talking about, though, with that...

Re: [1556] A magical girl transformation sequence

In case some people miss this, I should also point out that when Erika says "bad boy I have a secret crush on", she does not literally mean that her liking for Largo is a secret crush. She is playing the Moeko magical girl role, and getting into character for her impending visit with the real Moeko....

Re: [1556] A magical girl transformation sequence

Erika and Largo make such a surprisingly great couple. I love how comfortable Erika is with Largo's weirdness. And Largo strikes just the right combination of concern for her safety, confidence in her power and ability to handle things, and willingness to be there for her if needed. It's really swee...

Re: Anybody else up for getting the FTC involved in this?

The failure of the VN project is not silly. It is infinitely depressing and weighs heavily on Fred and everyone else who was involved, including backers. We all dearly wish it had turned out otherwise. But to accuse Fred of not paying taxes (or any other crime) because you're unhappy about how the p...

Oh for pete's sake. Of course Fred payed his taxes. And of course some of the kickstarter money went to pay his living expenses. Fred has put more work in to the VN than anybody, and to do so he nearly stopped work for years on the comic and everything else that enabled him to pay to bills and feed ...

Fred has stated previously that a lot of the kickstarter money went to fees and taxes. I understand people are upset at how the VN project has gone, but this is silly.

Fred had started on 1556, but then realized he needed it to go differently. So he scrapped what he had and started over. He sounds happy with it now. Got the first panel drawn today and hopes to get more drawing done on monday.

So, do we know what Mr. Kobayashi's name actually is or not?
It's Kyouske/Kyosuke [1297]. Fred spelled it wrong on the comic, but we fixed in the transcript. Something to fix for book 7, assuming someone wants to publish it.
