Re: [1597] so this is what happens

Guys, I don't think that people are acting of their own free will here. Take a look back at this scene. Since miss hopeless-at-love almost got laid, her would-be lover's ex called him out of nowhere and everyone around her, with the sole exception of Mr Mundanity Piro, has started acting sexually i...

Re: [1597] so this is what happens

I’m gonna go on record as really not enjoying this one. I get that Ping didn’t know any better. But the tone of this comic is “yeah okay it’s wrong but it’s still kind of funny.” I don’t agree and I find repulsive. If any of my friends discovered video of me having sex, in circumstances in which I ...

Re: [1596] reference material

Largo's never displayed the kind of ego that had trouble admitting ignorance. I think it's possible or even likely that from his perspective he's just sharing learned information here. This requires a pretty big leap of faith about what constitutes 'reference material' but Largo's odd enough that i...

Re: [1596] reference material

Largo of all people mocking Piro at length for sexual dysfunction in front of Kimiko This inference is incorrect. Largo is not mocking Piro. In fact, he's simply describing the problems with the "reference material" as "matter-of-factly" as one might describe a game guide that has bad tips. Well, t...

Re: [1596] reference material

Piro may have felt that it was cruel, but if, as I suspect, Largo is doing this in a completely deadpan manner (as if he is merely concerned about the validity of the "reference material"), then he is not mocking Piro. We are talking about mocking, here, not whether or not Piro felt that it was cru...

Re: [1596] reference material

Again, I believe this to be incorrect. This has NOTHING to do with how Piro feels. Mocking someone REQUIRES ILL INTENT ON THE PART OF THE PERSON DOING THE MOCKING. Definition of the word: "making fun of someone or something in a cruel way". Largo is not trying to be cruel. He is simply stating thin...

An unhealthy person like Miho taking potshots at Piro and vice versa, interesting but a little painful. Largo of all peop...

Re: [1594] a side of you I haven't seen before

Erika is trying to cajole Piro into writing for a character based on Miho, but /not/ exactly her... This will be an interesting when he realises what they both are talking about. Since Miho is 100% off-script for her own story now, won't Moeko's plot line essentially become Miho's reality? If so, t...

Re: [1594] a side of you I haven't seen before

Kimiko is a toxic warbitch from hell, there's no call to be insulting 'zilla's and kitsune's by trying to lump her sort of monster in with them. Some people play baseball with baseballs. Some people play it with fruit. And then there are some people play it with grenades. (^_~) Can't let you have a...

Re: What are you watching/reading Q1 2021?

It appears that the Tonikawa manga has shifted gears, and is approaching it's climax. All the weird little clues in Tsukasa's backstory are now coming together. Not objecting to Tonikawa, just commenting on it: 140 chapters of bland vanilla sweetness, often apparently about whatever the author saw ...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

I have no way of knowing, but I doubt that many of the failed VN projects of that era were people acting in bad faith. More likely, it was just people underestimating how hard it is to pull these projects off. We’re all wiser now, I hope. When I googled random takes on it, I liked this explanation ...

It is entirely wishful thinking to believe that Largo and Erika have done the deed and it cheapens the development of that story arc for the initial awkward to have just been a blip. In this scene Erika believes that Largo is finally ready but as usual he's rather clueless I don't have any cause to...

I find myself vaguely curious whether any of Largo's rant is based on an actual event, but I'm guessing it's comic license. More curious about whether iffy also drifted away... I don't see many walls of text, so it seems not unlikely. Even more curious: Hey Teddy, do you still think you hate Miho or...
