Re: [1593] I win

Yeah,with his knowledge of shōjo manga you would hope he got that right. I also like to think he is gentleman enough for that to have been his instinctive response. Full marks anyway. On another note, d20 as knees ftw! (sorry Fred). Some lovely expressions, though. I particularly liked panels 6 and 7.

Piro is addressing Kim as Kimoko-san??? All things considered that's a bit more formal than the current circumstances warrant. @_@
Maybe because they aren't in private?
Piro has always been rather excessively formal in Japanese. See [724]-[725].

Re: [1591] there's no way...

If he really is based on the protagonist from the manga "Please don't bully me, Nagatoro!" then he is in fact anti-magic. In Warhammer 40K terms, he's a Blank - his very presence would cause magic to fail because he is the epitome of the mundane. So... that's why the concealment spell just failed.

Re: [1588] things left behind

I would expect there has been a lot of talk off-camera. We simply do not know what the state of their relationship is, and commitment does not necessarily have to be spelled out to be understood. Given Piro's declaration "I don't want it to be easy, I want it to be right" [931] I think there is a re...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

I'm pretty sure Dom and Ed are still single :shock: True, but I hardly think either of them "scores high in empathy", let alone any loyalty to TPCD. (Oops, missed a page - I'm with Roamer on that one) For my money she hasn't noticed. Someone at the Foxhole will. Problems will continue to multiply.

Hmm. I'm not sure about that. Simply living in MegaTokyo appears to be a course of action that may result in becoming an organ donor or an experimental test subject.

It suddenly struck me today that this is basically the decision the elves had to make when Sauron put on the One. "Of course, you can just take off your rings.

I could see either (grand ^n -)parental suppression, or naturally hidden development being the explanation for the non-manifesta(il)tion, but I'm not buying the idea of the loneliness curse without some strong on-comic evidence.

AFAIK no. It's just one of many "what if"s that have become SD canon.
