Re: [1529] The needs of my story

a contract unfulfilled is a stain on the honor any organization The contract is on the "head" of the family. "Interrogating", or worse threatening the clueless little girl to get at said head, doesn't speak much to the "honor" of said organization. It would be a cool setup for Mugi going all Liam N...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Well how bout that. I had been pretty convinced this was not the grandma, but just a sister as initially appeared. No cookies for me. :( I want to see this old biddy taken down a few notches. Yeah, I know I should be patient and hold off on making further wrong assumptions until I actually see where...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

Probably not going to happen if only because I want to see it. Bwa ha ha, story of my fandom.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

Yikes. If you have any interest in hearing someone's side of the story, you don't typically gag them. I am really hoping the Reservoir Dogs vibe I am getting here is just my own paranoia and not indicative of the direction this is actually going. And if Miho walks out now for yet more "how much can ...

All this after Ping made such a noble statement many moons ago about not getting into hentai as part of the game. That that part was reserved for herself. Yeah, but that was when she assumed there was actually something there to reserve, even if she hadn't previously felt a need to check. Now in th...

She’s obviously uncomfortable. I think it's still an open question to what extent her discomfort is due to him (if he does turn out to be just a creep client) or whether it's "self-inflcited" (if he's not a creep client, and thus not fitting into any of her expected scenario paths). Her deer-in-the...

Re: Dragonball helps with my depression

When my daughter was thirteen, a friend of hers of about the same age died of cancer. She was taking it pretty hard and I was at a loss what (if anything) I could do. (Death of an older family member is one thing, death of a child is unbearable no matter what the circumstances.) So one night (rather...

Re: [1522] a little different

Isn't this Junko's guy and Ping just hijacked their meeting? Ping is pretending to be Junko. Well, yes. The questions at the moment though are just what implications of "guy" are in play here, and whether or not this guy has actually "bought" Ping's highjacking and pretending. It's certainly possib...

His statements in panels 5 and 6 are meant for Ping, not Junko. Go back and reread them from that perspective and you'll see. :> Yes, that's definitely one of the clues that have me believing he's here for something much more significant than enjo kosai. Plus a few subtler things like body language...

Re: [1522] a little different

I will find it funnier if this guy had no improper interest toward Junko at all, and they were meeting for quite proper and above-board reasons as yet to be revealed. E.g. he knows something about SEVS units (a non-flaky version of her father?) or, maybe less likely, Analogues, and Junko has approac...

I feel so sorry for anyone learning English as a second language. [*]And "no offense", despite apparently meaning the opposite, is usually roughly synonymous with that curse. That does happen a lot.

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Every single bit of manipulation that Miho has done to Piro has been an act of love. She knows that in her story her lover is doomed to die tragically before she herself dies. I do still believe Miho was being honest (for Miho, i.e. "the truth" but not necessarily "the whole truth" :roll:) when she...
