Re: [1498] That Response

A simpler explanation would be that the "boy" she is talking about did indeed grow up to be the current Mr. Kobayashi, and that she is saying "boy" here instead of "my husband" to keep the conversation at a level Yuki can relate to more directly (without actually saying something patronizing like "b...

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

We don't really know what 73 means exactly, but if the light is an indication that would be level 6. I admit I have never been able to see the decimal point in the MGD readout. But nearly all other posters in the forums always referred to "7.3 sparklogens", and I took Masamichi's description of a "...

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

If this train of conversation is building up to a "her tails are over 9000!" joke, I am gonna have to sit this one out. :roll: Somebody wake me when 1498 is up.

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

Look at the rainbow curve of dots. There are twelve dots there. There's five bunched up at the far end. Hmm. I did consider that briefly, but the "lit" dot seemed to me to be the sixth from the bottom, which I couldn't figure out how to reconcile with her 7.3 reading. Wonder if the MagicalGirlDetec...

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

I am hypothesizing that: There is a real Moeko, i.e. a Moeko that is a real-life Magical Girl In MT, all fictional MG (and other) shows have a real MG/person/entity behind them The line between real MG's and the fictional avatar is pretty non-existent in the fan's eyes Interesting indeed.

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

The magical girl is right here. Is Rirka trying to publicly out Yuki? (Which I would expect ought to be a serious breach of magical girl protocol...) Or is she following Bean's mantra ( Ender's Shadow ), that "since the truth would not be understood, [she] told the truth." (Paraphrasing, don't have...

Re: [1496] Outed

I always thought it was pretty clear that Mysterious Saint Tail steals stuff by a combination of distraction, speed, and dexterity.

Re: [1496] Outed

Or maybe Yuki was so deep in the "dutiful schoolgirl" vision (similar to Piro vision) that she literally just ignored anything her father or mother said that might have implied magical girls? But how do we reconcile that with her admitted habit of shoplifting - which it seems she was aware of her m...

Re: [1492] Wellness Check

Might be the only way to explain yoinking pre-shrinking Zom-zom out from under the TPCD capture equipment, because speed by itself probably doesn't. Yup, that's the point I was making here (and, for that matter, here ). Despite all the other arguments that could be made against Yuki "teleporting", ...

Re: [1496] Outed

Yet another negative aspect of poor Ririka's eye injury... you can't tell she's winking at Yuki in the last panel. ;) :D (A variant of the old "stopped clock being correct twice a day" gag.)

Errr... she's not using it on herself. You can clearly see in panel 2 that the needle is pointed away from her, she's obviously giving a shot to someone else. The needle isn't even in panel 3, because she's moved on to preparing bandage tape (one handed) probably for the person she just gave the sh...

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.
