Re: [1483] Brawler

Not that it can't also be all true at the same time, and not that somebody can't do it and be right, but still. Bringing in a mystical new unknown person to narratively sort of explain Miho by guessing at her truth and origins and intent seems akin to that overly-dramatic posturing Largo gave to Eri...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

Not that. All sorts of animals do all sorts things without having even ever before met or communicated, much less kissed each other on the face. Including people. It's not unheard of, why would that matter anyway. Even aside from not mattering who kissed what where first or second, or earlier or lat...

Re: [1482] not a clear path

You know, it was pretty clear when Erika put the sudden moves on Largo he wasn't able to react consciously. He panicked, bailed, and later went to find out what was usual and expected. Rather freaked out at the time, but working to understand the scenario and how it should go. Erika didn't think it ...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

Eh. Miho did a lot of flirting with Piro, both before and after he knew who she is, none of which was for an audience, it was between her and him. Not quite that specifically. I more meant similar to Miho in staying in role, which role often being things like unclear, confusing, contradictory, illo...

Re: [1482] not a clear path

The fairly straightforward (yet somewhat slow to be established exactly) move of Kimiko going in for the kiss remains so, indeed! Regardless of temporary pause due to Ninja landing on car. Piro seems reasonably confused even if it wasn't him; 'here, now?' Perhaps against his stated intentions even. ...

Re: Wikipedia - Megatokyo

Encyclopedia of sorts, if you consider it's online and if you discount all the rules and open editing by people and cliques of jerks doing things like managing subjects as if they were their own fiefdoms. Yes the edits need to be made by disinterested people to some extent, but that's not the proble...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

then they get out of sight and what happens, Kimiko not only doesn't drop the act, not only does she not explain a damn thing to poor confused Piro, but she seems to be lost in la-la land. Even though the performance was supposedly primarily for the fanhorde's benefit, it's not over despite them be...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

i.e. she is trying to kiss him. Of course, it's also likely any other conclusion was a bit of stirring up things that nobody seriously believed, given all we've seen that didn't match. But indeed, kissing Piro would be the seeming goal here. Maybe it just looks oddly incongruent. Perhaps nothing st...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

Whatever hit the car, slams against or pushes at the driver door or nearly, it kind of knocks it around almost like somebody kicked it. Jumbles them all up, changes the vehicle trajectory but doesn't knock it over, etc. Is what is there a good thing or a bad thing ? Both? Neither? :) Which Kimiko's ...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

Well now. Megumi is upset that Junpei hasn't been more obviously actively presently protecting her, she's got notions about him and her, and she certainly is from the same family/area as Komugiko, from how she speaks under stress and when angry at herself etc. Is she like niece Marilyn physically, o...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

Um, Iffy? Kimiko said she wanted to persuade people to want Miho to live . So dying was probably not helpful for that and the story needs to continue past that point or it is just the same old, same old At one point earlier in her education maybe, although I always got the impression Kimiko wasn't ...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

One is they have already made a (more or less) successful second attempt at "playing one of her games", and Fred has chosen not to mention or even obliquely allude to it in-comic. I consider this unlikely given how important it would be to their plotline and development, but it's at least technical...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

A non big deal even the one time, not likely a frequent thought if at all by them now, and apparently by all indications nothing that continues. High-level Idol Erika puts the moves on inexperienced unsuspecting Largo who hasn't noticed the vibe or behaviors? What else was going to happen. Maybe she...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

{has not broken character} I'm not sure I buy that. They are under a blanket in a car, now would be the perfect opportunity for her to "be herself" for Piro even if only for a short time. It might be the last opportunity for a while, depending on what happens in upcoming strips (fanboys catch their...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

It still remains to be answered if what Kimiko is mostly up to is - right now for some reason - wanting to clarify again and more efficiently and directly that she herself was the one telling him she loved him in the hospital, using that opportunity of prepping to create some emotion for the viewers...
