Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Wouldn't you think that Moeko would have already cast a spell on Largo directly, if she were able to? I think she can't — and therefore may be much less powerful from within her coma than you seem to give her credit for. Erika, feeling highly uncomfortable, may be pulled out of the spell with Largo’...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

I just hope Largo will jump to Erika’s aid by simply grabbing her and hauling her out of that room because whatever he cannot see is clearly distressing his girlfriend. =( (…) Now, Largo? To Erika's rescue!!! =) So Largo grabs Erika and Moeko drops him into a pocket reality where he thinks he's sav...

I just hope Largo will jump to Erika’s aid by simply grabbing her and hauling her out of that room because whatever he cannot see is clearly distressing his girlfriend. =( And yeah, Moeko is really twisted — agewise, socially, emotionally, like a child having to deal with a grown up body… She's a po...

Re: [1558] Getting through

But if she is doing Moeko’s voice, I guess Largo will have heard that bit Erika would rather not talk about… Oh yeah. I forgot — Moeko’s text is Japanese — Largo didn’t understand what Erika was saying there. =) Why the heck would you make that a part of her lore? What the hell were you thinking? Y...

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

Just a stupid question. If Erika played Moeko, and they are both in the same room, and Moeko can actually hear Erika talking — and she is holding that wand… I still can’t believe Moeko is "channeling" through Erika. Erika seems too much like the awkward hospital visitor to me — all throughout this c...

@Zandra: *that* sounds like something that has ‘Largo’ written all over it. This time, if what you say comes true, he may actually remain innocent.

@BetaCygnus :) Well in 1540/1541 we can see they are not the same person. Also Moeko is much younger. Oh, yeah — *that* scene. Well, I interpreted that simply as different versions (alter ego) of herself. Miho unconscious, and so, with Yaku holding her, in tears, while Miho has this internal conver...

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

Owh, I feel for Erika — it’s so hard to do ‘light talk’ to someone who is lying in a coma — and she doesn’t even know her at all… Those first panels really captured Erika’s feelings of insecurity, unsure what to say, how to act… and then in the bottom left panel she finds her own emotions and can be...

Re: [1556] A magical girl transformation sequence

Haha, revisiting the page it still gets me laughing out loud:

‘Deep immersion into play can lead to a coma-like state.’

Though, of course, the situation is touchy — story-wise — I think this is one of your best Largo-jokes EVER, Fred!

Thanks for the ongoing smile!

That, or she's a much better actress that I thought, and is doing this for Moeko's sake. (Certainly not for Largo's mental health, such as it is.)
My vote goes to your ‘or’, Roamer. =)

Thanks for the update! =)

Re: [1555] Go see her

So, I take it that Largo still can not understand Japanese? … As a character, he's good for comedy relief but in delicate situations he's like bringing an APC INTO a fine dining establishment. I do not think I fully agree with you, Eraden. Okay, Largo may not understand any of the language, and yes...

Re: [1554] the parts needed

In real life outside the comic, I don't think there's anything she could just say or wear that would convince people she was really a robot until she started doing things impossible for humans. Including saying I'm a robot. That's just too unlikely to be true. It's way more likely if she said that ...
