He said could you imagine what Erika would do if she knew he was dating high-school girls. :D LOL Now *this* is what I call a highly interesting development. (Sorry, late — no thanks to my jobs…) PING!!! You sure you’re going to use your Mad Chameleon Skillz™ in *this* way? =) Thanks Fred, I’m grea...

But ignoring the tech-time shift. Forgetting the style itself or how it has changed. Compare like things, her around the 100s to others around the 100s. They've got plenty of emotive looks in 98 99 100 101. In 106 she looks like she's purposely drawn blank and emotionless and such. Almost like she'...

Re: [1507] "Being Yourself"

She looks kind of blank when we first see her in 106, maybe just basic look/act human and non-H privacy but the rest was mostly just Princess Maker whatever. Although after all the shocks and emotional purges and whatever happened to her … …like, maybe, the experience of Freds drawing skills advanc...

Beta: I feel that we do ourselves a disservice as a society to somehow ignore it or treat it as something best kept not talked about. I agree with you there, Sareth.

And of course, Junpei is as quick as he can. And as close.

Thanks, Fred! I had some LOL again while reading this comic! By the way, it seems to me that you are picking up some of Junpei’s speed!

Nice, quick update! =)

No, that's the sign language that Ashe (the foxgirl) and Megumi are using. Ashe is deaf (per Fred on the Twitch chat).

Re: [1503] You two

I like Piro’s linguistic development throughout this one, ending with "Uhb-! Ab-ab-er-!"

Not sure what language that’s supposed to be, though.
Quite sure it’s not Japanese — though the text does come enclosed within translation brackets…

Ah, new post! YAY! =D Yuki: PRICELESS!!! Just… priceless. Doctor… doctor… Ah! DOCTOR! =D And Ririka seems to open up something major here — Erika looks just sooo brittle in Panel 1… I am reminded of an encounter and conversation between Erika, Masamichi and Miho, outside MegaGamers… Fred, thank you ...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Ririka is or was a healer. I don't see how the compound hell anyone would imagine her as ever referring to herself as any sort of 'bruiser' but keep on fantasizing To me, she seems to be rather down to earth about herself. I guess Ririka might know best if she, intending to do some good, ever actua...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Erika"helping people and saving the world" is a little strong; keeping it stable, perhaps, until she bailed. Seems to me if the world is kept stable, it’s a tad safer, though. ; ) I thought Ririka was rather honestly being herself when she called Erika ‘a sweetie’ in the last panel. That seems to d...

Oh, I just noticed. I guess Largo (in panel 7) is thinking something along the lines of: "Y3s, go, 60… I wouldn’t wish you back ag4in.” …although that would either require Largo to have watched Pride and Prejudice (BBC 1995 edition) — which I doubt — or the thought to be completely Largo-original.

I’m glad Largo is there — at least he takes her seriously, just the way she is, and he values her for who she is as an ally.

I do wonder, though, if Ririka chose to introduce Yuki as the magical girl so openly with the expectation of them ‘silly boys’ rejecting Yuki as a possible candidate for the alarm party. =?

Woo-ha. 8D

Ririka is hurt, but in character and doing her duty.
Say, is every self-pronounced superhero scared to death of magical girls?

Gotta pity them. =/

…Them. Not the magical girls. =)

Thanks Fred, for this performance!
