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 ...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

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...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

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. Which also if the question is in light of the rest of 1172 how does now fit that, this apparently isn't coming between a real girl and a b...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Odd thought, what if Miho didn't cut off the original online hijinks because of fear or a sense of protection, wasn't behaving before in the bath house due to lack of interest, and recently wasn't reacting like that because she was matching the environment and tone of the kids. What if all that is d...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

She kind of starts out by overriding the distance subroutines. Curious. Yeah but she's said she gets to choose; but seemingly had overestimated a lot of data gaps when she said that to Junko back around 1172. Seems not ever having run that sequence she has no frame of reference, just a vague idea of...

Re: [1522] a little different

Miho brought this up in 443. It's rather part of the conversation between Junko and Ping starting in 1172 as well. Apparently we are free to gather what we want out of the non details, until if and when there is more.

Re: [1522] a little different

I think pie is too generic to be a clue. More likely to be a red herring. I mean, who doesn't like pie? As a coincidence it's a very minor and believable one. Could very well be a coincidence, but if it isn't, then it is another thing entirely. Such as the author trying to give us some sort of insi...

A look of a professor or the like. A ring on the left index finger. Seemingly not unreasonable or aggressive. If he's a client of Junko's, it's not apparently one who is overbearing and pervy. Somebody who may or may not know this isn't Junko or who knows mostly nothing about her substitute. Those l...

I'd like to point out that if he indeed realizes that Ping is a gynoid and not a high school student that any laws that apply will be for robots and other synthetic entities and not the laws that apply to human minors.

Re: [1522] a little different

Seems like the two main choices are 1 he thought (at some point) he was meeting Junko, 2 he did something like send something to Junko's phone to trigger Ping. For 1 he may still think it's Junko, for 2 he knows it's Ping. Either way he could be many things, except some choices vary depending on if ...

Re: [1522] a little different

The thought is that the guy knows it's Ping, and that he arranged this, it maybe wasn't really Junko he was trying to see. Or that at least he's not surprised Ping hijacked it. Rather than just the usual total lack of paying attention.

Exactly so until Fred gives her a name, she doesn't actually have one. Some ninja at the compound. Random clan member. Visitor. Rival clan spy. Junpei's mother, grandmother, sister, wife, child. Doesn't matter what her name is, but it's easier to call her something to identify her. Why Enjii never i...
