Re: [1495] setting off alarms

So we have explicit evidence these are actual explosions and not just the hospital settling / collapsing (whether from Miho or the fanboy horde or whatever other source of structural damage). I am back to supporting the thought I had in an earlier thread , that the TPCD have decided to destroy the h...

Fred has been shading the next comic this afternoon. With any luck he'll get it done and posted to his patreon tonight or tomorrow.
Excellent, really looking forward to more Yuki and/or Yutaka goodness (have been a Yutaka fan since forever now :lol:).

If Fred really wanted to make Yuki OP, he'd have her go back in time, and yoink Miho off the pirate ship........ :lol: Now why does that immediately suggest to me a plot catastrophe along the lines of "The Wedding of River Song"... :shock: :lol: EDIT: It's not established we've not gone back in sto...

Re: [1494] Stay Here

@darrin: Un-stealing the pants feels right, or maybe stole Yutaka into the pants... or maybe even stole his pantslessness ? Oh my, a Thief of the Abstract... that could be quite pretty in a certain scary way. Instead of just "I want object X to be at location Y, never mind the intervening points," ...

Re: [1494] Stay Here

I can't put my head around it .. how do you put someones pants on without lifting his feet? Did she blazingly fast open the seams of his pants, wrap it around his legs and re-sew? Panteportation? Way back when Yuki was hurling heavy appliances at zombies without seeming to touch them (the appliance...

Re: [1492] Wellness Check

I like how you can just make out Largo's hair and Erika's bunny ears and pipe in panel 4. Must be quite a battle going on with teh horde. Would seem to lean towards this not being a flashback then, as had been speculated in the 1489 thread. I love Yutaka's mental debate, visible on his stunned face...

Re: [1489] if he doesn't see me

We don't hear anything like falling munitions or see anything dropping the last two panels apparently. Well, in the next-to-last panel we are facing Yuki, not seeing what she's seeing; and it the last panel presumably the "hit" if any has already happened. So we wouldn't necessarily expect to see a...

There's also no evidence that Masamichi is a bad guy, either. Well of course not, none yet. paarfi was talking about hypothetical future possibilities. I was riffing off that because it seemed like an interesting and potentially important idea. EDIT: (unrelated to the above, just didn't want to dou...

Re: [1489] if he doesn't see me

Most everything seems to point to the first calm panels and what Yuki says to establish it's soon after she visited Yutaka, with no destruction, and then the last two panels being Yuki hearing/seeing/feeling/sensing an oddity and then the initial breaking out results. Can't be too soon after her vi...

Re: [1489] if he doesn't see me

You know Yuki is going to be in there like a flash to rescue Yutaka. Not just Yutaka... I'm figuring that the big boom is Miho's original breakout. That's going to put a big and likely terminal hurt on a lot of people. MG Yuki had better get her but in gear real soon now. ...but yeah, everyone else...

Um, is that supposed to be considered evidence that someone is... not a bad guy?

If so, I... well, I can't think of any reasonable response that isn't an auto-Godwin.

Re: [1489] if he doesn't see me

So it seems clear... that we've gone back to see things from another angle from the start. More likely, especially since showing Yuki's part interspersed with all the rest wouldn't have worked in the way going back would. Or really, not worked at all... So you're saying Fred is capable of dealing w...

Re: Ping WIP

Very pretty, nice work. I especially like the eyes, you have captured her wistful/apprehensive mood very well. Earblades could maybe use some work (should be a bit bigger I think?) but that is more than made up for by the detailing on the pants and belt.

Thanks for posting this. :)

Dragon Maids can all turn human or back to dragons anytime they want. Can Zilla's??

The amount of effort that has gone into the transcripts and search system over the years is truly impressive. The rare minor error doesn't detract from this. You, Kalium, and paarfi all have my respect and thanks for all the work you've put into this.
