Re: [1512] Which one

...huh. Well, I’m disappointed, but I’m sure longtime fans of Piro/Kimiko are screaming in joy, so that’s a positive. Maybe the majority had it right all along. We never see Piro’s eyes after he starts stripping down, which usually means some kind of unhappy emotion, but shouldn’t he be happy about ...

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

I was really looking forward to this update! Fred, you did a masterful job of conveying choice and consent through body language alone. Disclaimer: I’m firmly in Paarfi’s camp regarding Kimiko-Piro-Miho relations, so that bias influences how I view each comic. It was a nice touch that Kimiko shut Pi...

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

I wonder if Kimiko’s switched back to being the protagonist, then? Since it looks less and less likely that Piro’s going to do anything but let himself be moved around by circumstances. I am so eager for the next comic, to hopefully see what their next moves will be. Please don’t be a scene change, ...

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

On the other hand, I think these last two comics have shown something that is still missing from Piro and Miho's relationship. Yes the smexytimes, but even more so just a sense of fun. Piro and Miho are intimate in other ways, but have not yet got over the hurt and lack of understanding yet, and th...

I (sort of) called it! Kimiko was acting as Miho the whole time! (although my theory about channeling Miho’s story in the car turned out to be off the mark- I wasn’t sure if Kimiko would go as far as to pounce on Piro that aggressively while in her right mind and without an audience besides Piro him...

Darrin, Yuki has confirmed repeatedly through her magical girl powers that Piro and Miho are still in love.

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

Also, regarding the room, what happens to people’s clothes once they’ve removed them in a frenzy of sexual arousal? How many guests have been stuck naked in there, waiting for staff to bring them new clothes because the old ones burned up and the guests can’t leave the room otherwise?

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

All this within less than 24 hours. Maybe less than 12. Definitely fewer than 12 hours since Miho woke up from surgery, by my rough calculations. A LOT of things happen simultaneously. If we look at it primarily from Piro’s point of view: - Piro finds Miho awake, talks with her, and is kicked out o...

Re: [1508] Somewhere we haven't gone before

It’s funny to look at phones from the very first days of the comic, before iPhones came out. I think Megagamers even had a landline.

...I was about Yuki’s age, and when the main comic’s story ends, I will likely be older than her mother. Good god.

True, iffy. All those “errors” Piro mentioned way back when could very well have altered Ping’s original programming, especially combined with many more that she must have accumulated over the past couple of weeks (in comic time). Geez. Now that I stop and think about it, the comic has progressed by...

Re: [1508] Somewhere we haven't gone before

If Ping doesn’t intend to masquerade as Junko, why would she actively use her chameleon skills to replicate Junko’s hair and send a message to her paramour? Remember how the first time Ping changed appearances (after she failed at “playing” with Piro way back when), she didn’t realize why her clothe...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

As someone who has always communicated best using the written word, I find the contrast between Piro/Kimiko and Piro/Miho fairly obvious, but it’s also obvious that my obvious is not everyone else’s obvious (obviously). Online relationships can be real ones, sometimes even deeper and more honest tha...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

It’s likely that Piro didn’t know Miho was in high school. She was stuck in the hospital by the time they started talking outside the game, and given that she’s over a century old, she probably didn’t communicate much like a typical high schooler. Interesting thought about Pirogoeth’s child in Endga...

Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

Was Piro longing for it, though? He was barely able to confirm that he and Kimiko were dating, and he had his back to the fourth wall when he did so. Whatever Megumi saw in his face evidently convinced her that nothing sexy was going to happen in that hotel room, given her abrupt change in demeanor....

One minor nitpick in your otherwise exceptional analysis: I think Miho was aware of Piro’s real gender by the time she blew up their relationship. She implies as much in the bathhouse when they’re getting undressed. https://megatokyo.com/strip/1319 “You never did send me any pictures of your-“ which...

Re: [1501] Broken Glass and Back Seats

When we last saw Kimiko’s face (in the backseat while she was straddling Piro, and wow, I really just typed that), she didn’t look like herself. She looked...not dazed, exactly, but she didn’t seem like she was all there. How conscious was she before Piro and Megumi got her into the car? She didn’t ...

Re: [1494] Stay Here

Poor, poor Chewtoy. Is that the first time he's called her Yuki with no honorific? Somehow that says more about their relationship than pants (or lack thereof).

It also reminded me of Junpei fixing Mugi's lack of button discipline.

"Why don't ya figure out what she's really afraid of?" This comic was oddly heartbreaking.
