Re: [1484] Desperate

It still isn't fully convincing Miho is anything but what she is in Endgames or more recently the day she thanks Largo. Yet it appears more and more likely she is not the same, as she continues to be mostly docile, meek, fearful, huffing and the few times she's asserted herself, unsure, even adrift...

Re: [1484] Desperate

Or to turn it around, she's still at some level convinced she "needs" to die, but not surprisingly still finds the prospect of actually going through it terrifying. Oh yeah. Miho's mindset hasn't really adjusted to the new paradigm yet, and she doesn't really know what the new paradigm is , either....

Re: [1483] Brawler

Why is it that important that she be Japanese? It's not, really, but people need time to digest new information that's such a radical shift from what was previously assumed to be true. It has to be hard to watch people wander off into la-la land when you know the answers. But it wouldn't be any fun...

Some of the secrets to keeping the old forum running died with Cortana, but really I think the size of the posts database was well past the point of what the hardware and/or software could easily handle.

Re: [1484] Desperate

(2) We learn that Miho was always desperate to live and only just now realizes it, having long accepted reoccurring death to satiate the horde as her lot in...life.

Re: [1483] Brawler

Wow. And here I thought TV Tropes' owner had become too control-freaky years back, with The Great Japanese Purge being the last straw. It made me really sad to find out a moment ago that people are now told not to link to the MST3K Mantra . (Imo, it's perfect for this situation.) Ha, really? Didn't...

Re: [1483] Brawler

In 432 Miho refers to herself as "a fragile little Japanese girl", and nobody responds by saying anything like "But you don't look Japanese." So while Miho may not be Japanese (or even Asian), it seems clear that she at least looks Japanese. I'm with DrunkenSailor on this one; Junpei's sister made ...

Re: [1483] Brawler

I fail to see why so many people seem to get extremely butthurt over the prospect that Miho isn't Japanese. Why do you have any sort of emotional investment in such a concept? This is all stuff that has been slowly revealed over time and one of the weirder things is that some seem to take the whole...

this is strange. Doesn't have the same feel.
Vast majority of forum software are variations on a theme, but naturally they are different around the edges. I hear what we had before is very outdated in terms of the back-end stuff.

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

So, very similar to Miho's behavior most of the time? 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. Piro doesn't seem to particularly think romance, relationships and physicality are all that import...

Re: [1482] not a clear path

He did say that in the Twitch chat. But y'all know as well as I do that, unless it's actually in the comic already, it's not canon. Fred can and will change his mind, as he has thousands of times before. Also, half the stuff Fred says in the Twitch chat is trolling and Fred herrings, so you can't e...

you're weird
and probably all old now.
Our favorite thing at Youmacon and on the Twitch chat is people who say "Megatokyo! I remember reading that when I was in high school!"

I guess I was always old, I found MT not too long after it started up, when I was in graduate school.

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

So she pulls herself up onto her knees first (sometime between panels 2 and 8 of 1480) so that she can easily stretch toward his face as seen in panel 9 of 1480. Her head moving south in 1480 isn't indicative of "impending oral sex" (which I thought was crazy because geeze, they haven't even kissed...

Re: [1481] Steamy Appreciation

And anyone who can't see where Kimiko was going is being deliberately obtuse Considering that Fred seems to be in a struggle to the death with himself over what direction things are going in, I'm not convinced that he even knows for sure, which renders moot any presumed certainty on your part. What...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

My interpretation was that by "hot ninja action" she literally meant his abilities to save her from TPCD mayhem, but that she deliberately chose a phrasing that would sound like a euphemism for something naughtier. Basically joking aloud (even though no one else in the car is paying attention :D) a...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

The only one with a claim to "know" what they would do is Fred, and sometimes they startle even him. And Fred seems to be at war with himself lately over comic current events, so who knows. Kimiko still can't be completely sure Piro "got" that she was speaking for herself at that point and not for ...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

This is just kind of the way it works now. One of the perks of supporting Megatokyo through Fred's Patreon is that you get to see the comic a day early. Fred released 1480 to his Patreon site today, and it will go up on the main Megatokyo site tomorrow. That'll probably take some getting used to fo...

Re: [1480] Bumpy Ride

I've been telling Fred, everything that Kimiko's doing here, I think is partly for the benefit of the dying-girl-analogue fanboys that need to be thrown off Miho's trail (obviously), partly for the benefit of raising the good ship PiroXMiho from the sea floor, and partly to give them both some form ...
