Re: [1496] Outed

I always thought it was pretty clear that Mysterious Saint Tail steals stuff by a combination of distraction, speed, and dexterity. [...] I don't see any reason to complicate things by assuming she has ranged teleportation powers. There are a number of direct observations that any Theory of Yuki ne...

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.)

Re: [1495] setting off alarms

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...

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).

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:).

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...

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...
