Re: [1502] As good a place as any

Oh ha, I just now noticed that baleful eye of Megumi's at the bottom of panel 4. :lol: :lol: :lol: It's almost not there, only the top of her head is really in frame, but Fred managed to angle it just enough to catch that Evil Eye glaring up over the edge of the panel. :ph34r: Like I was saying last...

Re: [1502] As good a place as any

Looks like she smacked his leg in panel 3, if how they're situated in panel 4 is any indication. Mm, no, I think Invisigoth had this one right. Kimiko was lying on top of Piro, facing downwards. Megumi smacked whatever was topmost, i.e. Kimiko's butt. (Aside from issues of who was where and pointin...

Re: [1502] As good a place as any

Hmm, whatever was going on under the blanket, they are still clothed (I hesitate to say "fully" clothed given Kimiko is wearing what is only technically a top and no pants), and Piro still looks really confused. Kimiko on the other hand is giving off a nice "Wait, why am I being interrupted here??" ...

Re: [1501] Broken Glass and Back Seats

If Miho is many decades or centuries old and some sort of primordial power, or is more a catalyst for relationships than whatever Ibara believes her to be or the ASF acts like she is, what sort of future does any puny mortal have with the likes of that? Ha, indeed. "You might as well flirt with a m...

Re: [1501] Broken Glass and Back Seats

Panel 8 is Megumi's funniest facial expression yet. Her "times-I-have-tolerated-people-fucking-with-me-today" internal counter has clearly reached its hard limit, and the next person who tries fucking with her today, well... it is going to end very badly for them. :ph34r: EDIT: Although the cute pol...

Re: [1501] Broken Windows

Thanks Drac. Fred posted it after I went to bed. :) Megumi does not look happy. I suppose this is not the shared Megumi/Mugi kitsune grandma that she's calling here, but her other grandma. Interesting. Oh, is this a different grandma? My first thought was "Ah ha, that must be why Fred did those "Fa...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

There's nothing cute or romantic about a woman allowing a creepy stalker to take over her life. I'm really hoping that Erika can find her spine and tell Largo to go pound sand before it's too late Don't get me wrong, I don't really give a third of a rat's ass about Largo; I find him relentlessly an...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Eh, perhaps I'm shortsighted for finding it so, but I thought Largo and Erika's little exchange was cute. You're not shortsighted, it is cute. Anyone who's read any romance (esp shojo) manga at all should immediately recognize the blush-with-"Baka" trope (as DracMonster mentioned on the first page ...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Umm...Erika slim? Are you serious? Are you ? Mamma Peach said "slender" not "slim" first of all. Looky here , that is muscle not fat. Slender in the sense of bony? No, that's Kimiko ; but slender in the sense of "muscular rather than fat", quite reasonable. But that's missing the point. Even if Eri...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

It's probably entirely possible Ririka was referring to some archetype, or some other type of character class not MG. Or simply the opposite of small cute nice. That she wasn't talking about herself or Erika or even anyone in particular. Okay no offense but "good thing I wasn't portrayed as a FATTY...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Magical Girls whether current or of the burned out variety aren't shy about laying the truth bare. There is a vast difference between "the truth" and the sort of mouth-breathing high-school-bitch-clique garbage that Ririka tossing an unwarranted and unprecedented "big butt" snipe would represent.

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

Ririka is or was a healer. I don't see how the compound hell anyone would imagine her as ever referring to herself as any sort of 'bruiser' but keep on fantasizing I have vastly more trouble imagining Ririka as someone who would gratuitously insult Erika right in her presence, and with such a nasty...

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...

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

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

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...
