Re: "Monster" - Implications with MG plotlines and Megumi

Fair enough. We'll just have to disagree for now. I wouldn't be surprised if this is an actual plot point, what with Megumi having 9-tails. So hopefully we'll find out for sure at some point here.

Yakugashi:
<Cousin Youko told me Great Grandma is really only an eight tail ...> This suggests that great-grandma *is* a nine tail.
A valid perspective. However, we also have NinjaGram referring to her as "old eight-tail" in [1529].

What is CMX (I take it you're not talking about the airport), and what did Fred sign?
CMX was DC Comics brand for when they tried to get into the manga business. MT books 4 and 5 were published under CMX. DC later shut that brand down, and MT book 6 was published under the DC brand.

Re: "Monster" - Implications with MG plotlines and Megumi

Isn't greatgrandma 8-tails actually a 9-tails? I thought that was the point of the two-page special visit comic, when Yakugashi and mom went to visit her. Welcome to the forum Dr Memory. As I read that shrine visit comic [1490] , I think it's saying that great-grandma is currently an 8-tail, with o...

Re: How many of you, like me, stopped reading after Fred signed with CMX?

Why do you keep coming back here then? I mean, if you're not keeping up with the comic for like the last 15 years. Is it just the thrill of doing a drive-by every half a year or so? I mean, if you don't read the comic any more, let it go man. There's more to life. Leave it to those of us who do stil...

Re: "Monster" - Implications with MG plotlines and Megumi

I'm still figuring out the whole "monster" thing myself. But I think it fits in with a wider picture. Stability [1447] wants stability, and is therefore opposed to things that might make things unstable, and there are a lot of things that they seem to think might cause that. - Largo got designated a...

Re: [1592] I just didn't know

Perhaps the authorities are more negative and we know for sure the ninja are quite negative about them, but we also know for sure that the clan matriarch has been trying to beat a dismal view of kitsune into her clan members. This is a wider society thing, and not so much the fault of great-grandma...

I thought the matriarch was a great grandmother. Perhaps I am wrong. Is she Mugi's grandmother or great grandmother?
She's Mugi's grandma and Yaku's great-grandma.

when did Megumi lose her shoes? Was she planning to leave the hotel without them?
Apparently she de-shoed here [1579]. She just never put them back on when she got dressed in the morning, maybe because she knew she was just going to check on PxK for now.

Grandma's reaction will be interesting. Did she already know? Or has Megumi somehow been hiding the tails since birth. Assuming this isn't sudden-onset-kitsune-syndrome somehow.

I think with 20 years of comics we can safely say that there's been no sign that Fred is influenced by Lovecraft's work. No tentacles in the comic to speak of, and despite being at the right power level in different ways, none of the magical girls or kitsune show signs of being eldritch horrors or ...

Re: [1590] beautiful

I think an interesting question is whether anybody else already knew Megumi was a foxgirl. If she wasn't instictively hiding the tails as a newborn right out of teh womb, somebody would know, in which case great-grandma 8-tails would know. A nine-tail has to be clan business. Or did great-grandma or...
