Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

I've probably re- re- written the same sorts of things so many times there can never be as much of it in the future as there was in the past. ;) As for the triangle, Largo Piro, Miho. Look at the stories the guys tell to Erika and Kimiko, other things that have been discussed since and probably are ...

Re: [1505] I will take care of mom

Looks like the stage is almost set for a third-party intervention... Because we now have the complicated Miho x Piro x Kimiko situation, a vicious triangle - whatever any of those 3 might do or not do, will affect all 3 of them. Ah, but Miho is currently at a not necessarily so safe house, under th...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

Scarier maybe though, because when you turn something is still there, just not what you thought you saw? I'd say Miho's always lying about everything, but there's not enough information for it to be a lie. Even if there was, I don't necessarily think she is either aware of it or doing it on purpose,...

Re: [1505] I will take care of mom

The fox-people appear to know most all about Miho, the closest of anyone. Mugi knows Miho cut out, she's only just a bit wrong about Piro not being able to go too (perhaps normally he couldn't and only could because Ping). More importantly perhaps, they appear to be somewhat immune to the powers. (K...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

If only we could fit Tohya into a trope or anti-trope with any certainty, or know if she even actually exists, or if anything she's ever said or done is anywhere near true. Sure though, even the most horrid disastrous OldFlame tropy situation might be brought screaming back out of the abyss. Trippin...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

A number of MT things that have been explained have done so over time by alluding to and providing various complementary aspects that fit with each other. Situational describers in story. In that way, Erika x Largo currently appears somewhat similar to Miho and Piro. (The interactions between Miho a...

Re: [1503] You two

Those conversations at the end of the bathhouse/before The Horde fully forms in the school between 1346-1353 lead to many ideas about a great number of things, but seemingly like most everything Miho says and does, none of it quite clear enough to make informed conclusions that have some sense of so...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

Piro doesn't love Miho any more than Pirogoeth loves Moh. And Miho is a young school girl the same way Ping is a two month old baby. And the way Erika has been acting and Largo and Erika interacting, for the last two chapters, proves nothing at all. On the other hand, in the fabric of Megatokyo and ...

Re: [1503] You two

For who would hate who by when, there's lots on the old forum archive including some confusion at the time about which character was really meant to be called out in the seemingly random offhand not serious sorts of philosophical ideas about how things "would be".

Re: Question to Moderators: how would new threads commenting on old(er) story comics fit here? (e.g : 1254 rev after 150

The parts and pieces are scattered all over the place. Many of them are from what Miho herself has said about them, or from others repeating what she's told them. That they've perceptionally concluded from what they've seen and heard, or from what they think they know about her and her situation. In...

Re: [1502] As good a place as any

Mm, no, I think Invisigoth had this one right. Kimiko was lying on top of Piro, facing downwards. Megumi seemed to smack whatever was closer in panel 3, and in panel 4 Kimiko's back seems to be closer to the back of the seat. Maybe that's just the blanket and her right leg is nearer the front still...

Her grandma. Runs a short to medium term vacation getaway, we might say. And how human are Megumi's dad or his mom, we might wonder. Last comic, some chance standard NPC woman and dog on the street.

Re: [1501] Broken Glass and Back Seats

It's not excessively clear that Kimiko wants Piro to do anything but fix and jettison his feelings of past failure, regret at his general behavior patterns, whatever weird childish and otaku illusions he's got in his head. Less than conclusive she wants that so Piro can to get back with Miho, instea...

We could imagine that the same first situation and events just keep happening over and over again, even with awareness, in different non-matching circumstances, and with resulting behaviors that don't much mimic how anyone should be reacting. Or we could instead consider what we have been shown. Qui...

Aye, Megumi's mother's mother soon enough! Other things. The mirror is turned up already here at the starting of 1501, clear in panel 2. Last time it's clear is in panel 4 of 1478 where it's not up, lots of ways it could have put there. If Megumi put it that way, it would also explain why she's agai...

Ah, but 1108 is about Emergent Magical Girl Candidates. Moeko has already been identified and portrayed. From what Ririka says about her, not particularly with catastrophic potential, even if she was emergent or a candidate still. Regardless if Moeko is or was an EMGC, how actually sparkly powerful ...

Original Erika would have broken his arms or something. But after much clarification of the rules starting around 683 it's beyond that sort of thing. Further insight at certain junctions such as around 849 and onward. In 1150 . Such as 1260 and 1289 , more. In 1499, Erika appears to peer over her sh...

Since Ririka seems to have personally known Moeko for a while, as a peer if not as a nurse, or both. And given that by and large none of the actresses or magical girls being patterned seems to be aware of Miho (who even her acquaintances forget when not present). Combined with Miho seemingly being i...

Re: [1500] Trapped on the inside

Insider cross-translation science fiction/fantasy humor. Nice. . If Ririka is right, and Erika can finish Moeko's story, maybe the same could be done for Miho. It would take someone who already understood her story and was emotive enough to really grasp it. It would also help if they were a professi...
