Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

We have both a new, young, powerful and nervous Magical Girl, and a young, brash and spunky three-tail Kitsune, hanging out together. What are the odds? Destined to be best of friends? Maybe Yaku can keep Yukata healthy enough to actually date? Bit of a side note, but sorry, when did Yuki and Yakug...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Roamer just won the thread. Seriously the best analysis of what's going on that has been posted here in a very long time. I personally believe the Ninja and the kitsune to be offsetting forces though not necessarily a direct balance. Offsetting, yea, but never in a direct balance. The different for...

Re: [1585] rest and recovery

If Erika actually wants to get romantic she should put her foot down and demand a room with no distractions.... Considering how their last close encounter went, some distractions are probably a good thing. The fact that Erika considers the entire string of incidents that included Piro breaking Larg...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Ok, after pondering these ideas since 1583 came out, I decided to post my thoughts. At this stage these are all extrapolations. Yet Megumi seems poised to take on a much larger role in the comic in the future, so I've decided that putting the ideas out there would be useful, for a starting point of ...

Re: [1585] rest and recovery

Initial thought: If this hotel burns down tonight, Fred is going to be hard up finding new protagonists.

Second thought: Have we ever seen Erika blush for anything other than a totally offhand idea of Largo's?

Re: [TTDP 011] a failure to communicate

Note the picture of Chokky with Daft Punk. Very nice. Yeah, that was fun. I really like what Fred is doing with the TTPD art, playing around with more expressive faces and minimalist backgrounds. Panel 7 is a classic Wile E. Coyote 'oh no' realization panel. And the way Chokky is dressed and the an...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

The north star was useful because it was a fixed reference point for navigation. The important point is that it gave information about the external world, as opposed to "Whatever direction I am facing must be north, because my nose and my gut never steer me wrong." And in the past, Teddy was right ...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Teddy is our north star, always unchanging. Even Fred acknowledges this. I submit that the north star is useful because it actually, you know, shows which direction is north.

It's been Teddy's schtick, err firmly held opinion for as long as I've been on the forum. He's the one constant here. Don't ever change, Teddy. :ph34r:

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

If Megumi has fully manfested and her future mindset reflects her emotions during the manifestation, I suspect you'll be proven wrong on this one, Teddy. Depending on the source, the power range of a 9T* can be pretty terrifying, and she's got no experience in controlling them. They may need Miho's...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Just wrote a long post about what I suspect might be happening here. Not going to post it here yet, I want to wait until the comic is up publicly. Also I think reviewing it after I get some sleep might be a good thing. It all seems quite logical at 2am, but we know how that can turn out.

Clearly Megumi wasn't smacking him around and dissing him enough. Or maybe she's too tall for him, Hayase is pretty short.

Yell "WHAT PHONE?" and motorboat Megumi.
Get her to laugh in this mood and you might win her heart. Or they might find Teddy-bits in five prefectures, but that's the chance you take.

Re: [1581] can't make it any worse

Having been in almost this exact situation, the winning sequence of moves to solve the puzzle is:

-Look at phone
-Say 'Yes, it is' with a worried frown.
-Pick up phone
-Turn phone off
-Look back down at beautiful girl
-Smile
-Say "Now where were we?"
