Re: Scripts to list characters by strip (instead of search-ninja's all strips a character appears in)

Other possible name typos (in addition to Kenji -> "Kenhi" in 1252): Largo's translation device is variously given as "tr4nzl33t" (1142, 1144, 1148, 1153, 1232, 1234), "Transl33t" (1167), "Transl33tor" (1167), "Tranzl33t" (1163), and "tr4nsl33t" (1148, 1162). Probably more a transliteration choice t...

Re: [1577] cheating

I am a bit boggled that it is beyond the search nijnas’ abilities to report who appears on a particular page, though I guess it just wasn’t thought of at the time. Well, as paarfi points out, this info is already available via the transcripts, like this . But if you're looking for something a littl...

Scripts to list characters by strip (instead of search-ninja's all strips a character appears in)

Over in Story Discussion louisxiv asked if the search ninja could "list who appears in a comic page, rather than which pages a character appears in". It was pointed out that that functionality is already provided by the transcripts (megatokyo.com/transcript rather than megatokyo.com/strip for those ...

Re: [1577] cheating

This gives me an idea for an infographic with all the characters and their relative frequency within each plotline/chapter, along with their relationships with others and how they shift over time. I needed an interesting project for learning PowerBI anyway... I always wished this included MegaTokyo.

there is no such thing as an unimportant side character Well, I would at least qualify that to say it depends on the skill of the author.

Re: [1577] cheating

It's a faux pas - French for "Do Not" Do not go aspellin at me, mister!

Re: [1577] cheating

Ha, just watched JoJo Rabbit a couple days ago on Netflix, and really liked the "Komm gib mir deine Hand" at the beginning. So this strip immediately made me assume this would exist: https://youtube.com/watch?v=KCiDb6XQYNw And it does. :) EDIT: Apropos of the title, on the other hand, is Quirrell's ...

Re: [1576] couldn't help it

Last thread I asked if this were some relation of Yutaka (shy guy caught in the act must run in the family). Then last night something even more left field hit me... Could this be Hitoshi? We only ever got Erika's side of that story (including Kimiko's filtered version of it to Piro). Granted even u...

How likely is it, you think, that what she told to Kimi in 1400 to 1407… Cui bono? Why would Miho have to lie to Kimiko? What does she need from Kimiko that she needs to hide the truth from her? If she's lying in that scene, where does the lie start and where does it end? Is she faking her distress...

There are a great many examples of Miho's deceptiveness, misleading, trickery, etc. in there story writ large. Well don't leave me hanging there, name one.

Clearly Erika is much better at handling small children than Hitoshi led his brother to believe.

Re: [1564] Important

Zombie Rent-A-Zilla was made into a huge running joke. Joking can cover up a great many things. 1) RAZ was bitten in 1091, and in the immediately subsequent strip 1092 it was blatantly obvious he had been infected and turned into Zombie Zilla. (If you count the obvious implication of Yuki's frantic...

strength to spare there. And now it is amped up with the magic girl energy of Moeko. We shall see how it turns out, but I think Erika is no longer in the driver's seat of her body.

But it doesn't come across like that at all, at least to me. Me either, I agree.
