Re: [1512] Which one

Heck of a time for her to show back up. ;) Although she was properly dressed for the occasion the last time she showed up when he was going to shower with one of the two directions reverse or forward, and it doesn't seem this time she'll find out later she wasn't needed then leave in disgust over hi...

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

little spine and Kimi-zilla weren't quite about that particular topic. Apparently a somewhat different thing for that nickname, being overall dangerous and unpredictable, the opposite of nice and quiet, and destructive. From time to time now and then. Rampaging and such. The other thing was in anot...

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

You mean here, most of the Horde. I don't know that The Horde is around, much less paying attention anywhere else. So not really. At least, not those who were drawn by huge aberrations in the story that no longer appear present, and them being already dispersed back to their normal existences last ...

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

What exactly Miho was thinking in 1121/1122, or if those plans changed or not, is a mystery. Since she didn't, the question of if Miho would have stayed at the ASF forever will have to remain unanswered. Likewise, we don't know yet if a Miho story can only end with her or others dying, since nobody ...

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

How did Piro and Miho feel about each other in the past, during the manipulative emotional and non-physical physical-ish aspects of Moh and Pirogoeth in Endgames and the chat personas in chat. That past does seem at least somewhat an open question, given the circumstances and occurrences then and no...

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

There is that continuation of 'make a choice' aspect. And sometimes it seems neither piro can (or doesn't want to, perhaps just not yet) decide. But it seems less about who, and more about how quickly and when, with the one he's treating like an actual person and that he's interested in working with...

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

It would seem Piro is good at 'romance games' because he likes them, and also knows from experience how to follow the logic of action/reaction in those types of games. Yes certainly reality is far less helpful in determining such things, being messy and everything that pathing in games really isn't....

Hmmm, it doesn't look like she's putting her hands on his arms. Although even if she did, that the reason would be to try and keep his arms away. Rather than to just grab his arms to hold him or get better leverage for the kiss or just because that was the move that was moved into. A hug may look so...

Quite correct, and agreed, we don't know the accounting of it all. Also agreed, the communication has been lacking, and a number of other things such as it taking a long while to get something we still don't have. We are only assuming we'll get something eventually too. Not sure if anyone's seen thi...

Re: The Visual Novel

The initial schedule and scope always seemed too aggressive. Passionate and detailed artist with little that can be well-delegated even if familiar with such things, from a non-game company ('not even indie'). From some people starting from scratch and mostly winging it. What has been done over the ...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

They formed from nothing and nowhere and everyone and every place, and during their rioting and rampaging knocked down a building, grabbed Miho, pulled down Piro, and injured many people. They are dangerous and unpredictable. Could it have been worse, probably. As it was, Miho and Piro were dishevel...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

Not just dangerous, deathly specifically almost happened but for luck kinds of horribly dangerous. Yes, certainly hordes are dangerous. We've seen the outcome. Are they directly dangerous to Piro's life, as in they might grab him and then turn him into shredded Piro? Were they before, are they now. ...

That's one of many of what's great about MT, our apparent main protagonist apparently can't make up his mind, and neither can the version inside the comic. :) No seriously, when perception is most all, and our reliably 'unreliable narrator' (and trope-breaking master-troll) plays with those percepti...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

Yes it is in story things like Pirogoeth cutting Moh's face literally and/or figuratively. Whatever is being remembered, seemingly how Piro neutralized Miho by breaking the emotional stat manipulation or its effects. So too in story are a lot of other Endgames information and flashbacks. Mentions, e...

For his part, Piro has seemed to consistenly be mindful that this is Kimiko. No matter how immersed she herself was. That seems interesting. Given Kimiko going back to herself (hair color or not) and this situation. Might be we can just suppose this is a chance for Piro to make some choice or anothe...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

It's not a sure thing we can apply any lessons from non-story elements to the story. Or that when somebody feels something, they're correct about what they think that something is. About the rest, the point is kind of that there's so many ways to interpret what we know (or think we know,) so many wa...

Lots of things look like lots of other things, is this anywhere near what happened in Endgames or Online between Pirogoeth and Moh? Perhaps only in that there's some acting going on with Kimiko and Piro. But not much like in a game or chat, these two are after all both here, close together physicall...

There's a whole lot of underoverestimating going on here, and of course she's not been acting like Kimiko, and certainly Piro is still acting the same way that's made everyone else give up in some degree of disgust. Most recently Megumi with her go have tea with your body pillow you're not going to ...

Some of Dom's actions after telling Piro he has to choose are a matter of interpretation.

Dom didn't appear to have a side, or care what Piro decided, and never threatened Piro directly.

There's not much reason to think Dom wasn't still friendly to...
