Re: One WIP Twitch thread to rule them all [SPOILERS]

In one of the streams, Fred can be seen using a ... Ruler! Makes sense. Magical energy density is most commonly measured in centisparklogens per millimeter, so he'd need the length of the wand to be as consistent as possible from panel to panel. When he breaks out the protractor, then we'll know we...

Re: [1540] alone?

Has anyone missed the similarities between Miho and the girl? I did include "mini-Miho" in my list of possibilities at the beginning of the thread :D But to be honest not so much on physical similarities, I don't trust my eye on that too far. I think jkhartl made an important point about the lock o...

Slightly my fault too sry.

Re: [1540] alone?

Ok, seriously (since my attempt at staying humorous above meant my point was universally missed): where the heck are any of you getting any kind of relation to Piro or Kimiko from a "Burning Bed" reference? You [see edit] do realize that's not a euphemism, right? Certainly not for anything fun? More...

Would Ping also be in this mix?
She would be the old broken down lady robot encouraging the other dolls to bow to the Queen of Filth, haranguing the beleaguered Miho doll for having had true love but thrown it away. :(

Re: [1540] alone?

The Burning Bed! Fred has explicitly stated that he will not draw what is happening between Piro and Kimiko, so leave that to your imagination and go on. Wait, P+K? I had thought Teddy-Werebear intended Miho to be the occupant of said bed... (That's yet another problem with doing a wall-o'-text, yo...

Re: [1540] alone?

Was Junko the previous not-alive-enough girl? And Piro was supposed to be one (girl) too? Regardless of my opinion on those two particular possibilities, you raise an excellent point: English "either" doesn't necessarily mean "one out of two possbilities". Although it often does structurally ("eith...

Re: [1540] alone?

Not alive enough for you "either." Hmm. Last I remember Miho saying something about someone not being alive enough for her to "use" was in regard to Ping. The way she talks about "taking" from others and "using" them no doubt inspired a lot of the fear and loathing Miho draws from some quarters; an...

Re: [1540] alone?

Miho certainly has enough self-loathing for her conscience to treat her like that. AFAIK Miho has exactly zero self loathing. Being stuck in a bind death loop may be pretty awful but that's not going to affect self esteem Not directly perhaps. But a few dozen or so rounds of "people who love her di...

Not that I've seen the strip yet, but given the ambiguities people are mentioning, I am wondering if something is going on like the Doctor Who "Hell Bent" episode: in the milliseconds before impending demise, he would "stop" to imagine himself safe in the TARDIS with plenty of time to think of a cle...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

I suggest using wwwjdic.com for lists of kanji used for homophones, though you'll have to have a way enter the kana to generate it, as entering Latin characters will result in an attempt to translate English to Japanese. If you're using a Windows computer, you can use the character map accessory to...

She was face-down in a river for an undetermined period of time.
More alarmingly (or "charmingly" as T-Wb would put it :P), there is no apparent reflexive gasping intake of air when Yaku rolls her around face-up.

The difference between chikan "masher, molester, pervert" and chikan "substitution, replacement" is a matter of what kanji are used to write each word. Ooh, excellent, thanks tremendously for this.
