Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. Backgrounds and Headspace. To put a bit of both together. The big-picture background information parts haven't been static, they've moved and reformed since 2000 in a lot of ways. Some things just about change themselves because they turn out to fit, others because they're decided to be changed, ...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

all we have to go on are her reactions, the reactions of those around her, and the explanations we get. Those, and our perceptions (opinions, determinations, conclusions) of them. Which perceptions may or may not be impacted by at least to some extent knowing it is filtered in what gets presented, ...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

I can't imagine any reason why should would bother going along with Yuki's kidnapping of her if she could avoid it. Just because we can't think of one reason, doesn't mean she can't think of many. Or she doesn't need to, she knows them or they just are. Maybe Miho just couldn't avoid doing whatever...

Re: [1527] Nature of the relationship

Ah, a Himeji Kitsune clan relocated to Tokyo, dialect had showed Mugi wasn't from round these parts, now we know where. (Was any of that in the shrine visit arc?) So, that very much appears exactly Tohya but with feline ears and tail; a sidepanel cute funny incongruity (or another power Miho has whe...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Mostly everyone in MT seems to display a bit of accelerated everything, including healing. As far as the alarm, it seemed it was implied the Fluke PMGD-540 was "always" going off, as in, "too frequently" and "for no reason". Where nobody wanted to listen to the often there alarm sound from nothing a...

... a forced move by the metaplot to reset her consciousness back to defaults .... Or maybe it was a deliberate move on her part, to isolate herself so she could continue to become less the slave of the story. So many things it could be, with no apparent way to tell. It's not just the lack of infor...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Did the seemingly unkillable potentially indestructible somewhat omniscient unknown something (that many call Tohya Miho) simply allow one story aspect (Ed) to think his was over (for the time being, until the CoE "happened" as it worked out, planned or not), or was that just the capstone to the two...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. Miho stepped in to absorb the power as that's how she's supposed to feed, or at least that's the scenario we had at the time. It was guessed at, Masamichi said things, Miho didn't disagree. We have a number of times Miho has stepped in to stop (help, move) things (Yuki almost being caught for st...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

There are still 'non-perceptional unanswered questions' about when (something like) Erika's real life removed her ability to become the portrayal any longer, she insulted or informed the group of the reality etc, some took that personally in a negative way, and Miho stepped in to (absorb the powe...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. There's some sort of feeling here that there are the public imagination- and emotion-driven aspects of some roles. Distilled, compacted, exaggerated, enhanced from the real people or roles, who are either portraying or a source or both, everyone in story actual or referenced. Then there's how the...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. Some are, from what we hear, magical. Although, given they're apparently part human part fox (humans with fox features, foxes with human features) and mythological beings etc, and in MT, a magic sort of thing is rather a given. The land of Idols, Analogues, human robots (bionic organic androids),...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Not surprising if the origami were purposely made to look sort of sentientish tho ;) but I agree they do look whimsical either way haha It's mostly that imo panel 2 isn't focused enough to tell, and she just did sit up quick. Perhaps she's consciously or unconsciously flexing in the other panels, or...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

It looked like the origami was just getting scattered as she moved, Junpei more talking thinking answering than doing any ninja-fast moves, and the shirt moving around as position shifted initially fairly quickly. Although maybe some of that is because panel 2 is kinda ill defined or at least doesn'...

It's honor to love , and the way of l33t . Nice. There are so many little origami foxes around. How long has he been doing that? Seems it takes him about a second or five to make them? That second to last frame. That look that can't decide if she's relieved or disappointed. That 'getting surprised',...

Re: [1525] "This important too"

Piro ignored Sera maybe because he had a naked woman, he-thought-he-was-once-close-to sitting next to him but then the conscience's job would be to keep the two apart, he'd get his ass kicked if he didn't keep the distance... he'd risk a 'stern talking to' from is guardian angel.

Re: [1525] "This important too"

Can Miho see Seraphim? The example during the bath house from 1318-1330, I don't think it's clear there if Miho saw her or not. They didn't appear to interact, but then again once the bathing began Piro mostly ignored her as well. Since it's Miho, likely she would know about the CEA and see related...

Re: [1524] 13 cm

Whatever it is, it's Junko's phone listing Ping is 13cm away from it. Probably more like steak knives, bears that have fallen off their beds, and origami money. I feel like I've already said most of the below in posts over the past few strip threads. I hate repeating myself but maybe putting it all ...

Re: [1524] 13 cm

I don’t entirely understand what’s happening here. Ping doesn’t know anything about initiating sex, so she’s about to pop into the Foxhole for...what, advice? From the dialog here (and also as she said before to Junko) she believed it was under her control, but found out in actually there's no data...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe the fact that Ed seems to be getting a lot less effective is because they've dumbed him down to make an easy mode for her. Given his stories about the past, and his behavior and attitude, it would seem he's usually very competent, in a psycho kind of way. He just seemed to be outclassed, and ...

Maybe Megatokyo, at least in its current form, was created by Sony to provide a safe space for training the EDS prototypes It wouldn't seem narrative-wise that Sony created MT, although they certainly could be using it. Yet and then, there's the other potentials like that to us it's Mega, to those ...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe a main point of her being released only partially finished is for Megatokyo to be some sort of a training ground to make Ping (more) human. An experiment by whoever's behind it, Sony or otherwise... Well they did send Ed to retire her, so if this guy is working for someone, maybe it's not them...

Ping doesn't have the content she needs to get to path b or beyond, seems she's not been fully programmed for this type of game. Pie usage, 1172:4 in particular.
