Re: [1512] Which one

With regard to the bath house scene, there is a key difference - Miho made it very clear ahead of time that she did not want him to play for her. Kimiko made it very clear that she did. Piro called her on it though, reminding her that any scene he played with her would be a "hell of a lot deeper th...

Re: [1512] Which one

Ha, yet another parallel between Piro and Arthur Dent, namely the ending of "Mostly Harmless". :lol: (Heck even most of the book before the ending, he literally dropped Fenchurch right out of existence :o) Could be worse. Imagine if a random girl appeared and it was confirmed that she was Piro's un...

Bleh. I hate this pairing. It feels wrong and it’s only going to cause more angst down the road. Can we have a scene change back to anywhere else now?
Why does it have to be a pairing? Why can't it just be adults doing adult things?

Re: [1512] Which one

The dialog is effectively Fred's internal monologue. Not entirely sure of the mood in that final panel. There is a hint of 'I don't care what you think I'm an adult now', but there is also something of 'please don't spoil it for me before I have a chance to find it out for myself'. I agree with Paar...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

What's easier, a shower or a bath scene?

I doubt these places have baths, outside of appropriately themed rooms of course.

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Doing anything more than heavy petting in the shower is pretty much impossible without some 'assistance'. The movies make it out to be far, far less awkward than it is in reality :P Sez you! A great deal is possible with a tub insert sized shower, sez aye!! ;) This is Japan dude, everything is tiny.

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Nothing personal, but this is just me wanting the "poor schmuck" to win something for a change in terms of personal relationships. I suppose I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic in a sense. Can't fault me for that now, can you? The problem here is that Fred is determined that Piro should never 'win' in...

Kinda hard to get all steamy in the shower when the water is supposed to be ice cold(of course, the warming up comes afterward).... ;) Doing anything more than heavy petting in the shower is pretty much impossible without some 'assistance'.

Anyone who thinks there won't be a scene change next comic, raise your hand. :D (But please Fred, let Piro accept Kimiko's "invitation", give us nice guys a faint ray of hope. :D ) I have a lot of confidence in Fred lately, however with the trepidation about the SFW rating of the current strip, I c...

Piro, you fool, get in there! She's giving you an open invitation, get in there!

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Except...Piro is much much better at FPS games than Largo, in fact it was a running gag earlier in the strip that Largo's skills were anything but l33t I think that's all fast twitch response... I actually would have said that Piro would appreciate someone telling him clearly what they want, instea...

@DracMonster: Ok, I can see that. "Are you really sure?" I still think she's expecting him not to though. Fred was adamant that this would all be about choice and consent. The last panel is her asking him very clearly whether he wants to move from making out in the back of a car to something slight...

Paarfi, you're missing the last panel here dude. That is the 'fuck the past, shared shower time bitch' moment. There is no ambiguity there.

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

Fred is flipping between being determined to let this play out and saying 'fuck it' and flipping the table. He's half trolling and half serious...not exactly sure what we will get next strip.

Did I really?
Either way these two need to just hook up. Nothing clears the air like a hot night of passion.
And nothing else massively complicates things.

Have no doubt, this is a major paradigm shift, just not in the way we think.

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

But this is SoP for Piro. He's off on his own mental sidetrack, but still taking it in. He will eventually prove it with an on-point remark that shifts up to a new level. Have a look at the bathhouse conversation for an example. I hope so, because the bathhouse sequence was probably some of the bes...

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

Here's my short version; I just want Piro and Kimiko to do the big "relationship level up" and both enjoy it, with occasional comic-yet-tender moments. I think the point is that this is a relationship that Piro doesn't ultimately want and that Kimiko has already decided is doomed to failure. How ab...

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

Here's to hoping Kimiko continues to not be insulted by his behavior, and that there's some choosing going on next, some ending of the let everyone else make all the decisions of what to do when. Indeed, the easiest progression here is just to ignore Piro's clueless (or confused) behaviour and remi...

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

Kimi has a touch of the manic overly-attached girlfriend about her. Not sure if that is the 'acting', or the fact that they are both rolling down a hill here and not much is going to stop them falling.
