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

I have a new theory about Piro, and that is that he's been playing way too many VNs and taking them way to seriously. After all, Piro's tag line used to be that "he could win any game with any girl". But let's think about VN relationships. Normally, a player has to make every choice exactly right in...

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

That's an interesting idea I've seen being put forth here: up until now, Kimiko was playing the part of Miho, and that part included sex scenes. Piro could pick up on this on a somewhat subliminal level, and that was why he's been awkwardly trying to derail things. Now that Kimiko is going back to b...

Kimiko after a shower: "Now that I'm not playing Miho anymore, there's no reason to pretend I want to get within three feet of you. By the way, Miho totally wants to jump your bones."

Dear God, what is going on with that boy? Regardless of long-term emotions, there are 20-something hormones to consider.

Re: [1503] You two

I'm trying to figure out why Piro is cock-blocking himself so hard. When Megu first talks about a love hotel, he insists it's not right unless he pays, which he can't. Then he tries to talk Megu out of doing it all together. On the surface, this is ridiculous. At worst, he's going to get a few hours...

Re: [1499] Little Reflections

"Moeko-chan was never healthy enough to do much of the magical girl stuffs".
So we have a magical girl who was very sick and managed to inspire a story that didn't rely on the character being sick to be immensely popular. Miho, are you listening?

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

Looking a the sparklogen detector (https://megatokyo.com/strip/1107) it looks like Yuki is kind of medium-grade, 7.3 on a scale that goes to 12.

There's a whole lot of interesting stuff here, but I think the most interesting is the throwaway line "Moeko's primary one, too!"

May I point out that you are trying to apply physics to magical girls? I hypothesize that Yuki is, on a deep level, aware that she is in a web comic and structures thereof. In particular, she knows about framing and gutters, and things like physical laws, object permanence, etc. only really apply wi...

And now if Yuki applies her typical ignorance of physics and anatomy and tries to put Koby's pants on at Yuki-speed ... let us have a moment of silence for the generations that may never be.

Re: [1489] if he doesn't see me

If we have a narrative with several plot lines going at the same time, there are two ways to handle it: 1) Rapidly shift back and forth between plot lines, like Peter Jackson does in the movie "Lord of the Rings". 2) Stick with one plot line a while until it has reached a resolution, as JRR Tolkien ...

I'm figuring that the big boom is Miho's original breakout. That's going to put a big and likely terminal hurt on a lot of people. MG Yuki had better get her but in gear real soon now.
