I'm not sure how much of it has to do with hormones and how much has to do with adrenaline. In the aftermath of a high-stress situation the mix can be quite volatile.
After the adrenaline rush goes away they are probably asleep. Piro was doing some heavy lifting.

Re: [1501] Broken Glass and Back Seats

Piro is going to be regretting a lot of things once he gets out of the car. Not the least the fact that he's snogging another girl. Piro really should have shown some backbone here and pushed Kimiko gently away. Piro doesn't know what or who he wants. He thinks it should be Kimiko but he still harb...

If so, then why did Meimi get an anime even though she didn't have enough sparkle to even set off the TPCD alarms? How does sparkle power matter?

Re: [1496] Outed

So if EVERYONE in the battle (except for Erika and Largo) had Magical Girl proximity alarms, does that mean they were all MTPCD? Including the factions that were supposedly just Miho fans? And oh, boy, is Yuki ever in for it now. Just look at the expression on Mrs. Kobayashi's face. I suspect that ...

If Ririka was upset with Yuki she probably would not have been so flippant with the baby talk. “So you’re the little b**** that’s been beating up my baby boy?” Largo is understanding and speaking Japanese?

Re: [1495] setting off alarms

In panel 3 there is something in front of her that I originally thought might be a leg (hoping it was not her leg that shot would not have been enough) but now I think it is an arm of someone she is attending to.

Meanwhile, why have his family failed to show up for 20 minutes while the hospital is being demolished? Well, I'm sure Ririka is off doing nurse things, as she should be. And you can't expect Seiya to miss his animu for something as trivial as a hospital being demolished. Well, it is the next morni...

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

As I recall Meimi is based on Mysterious Thief Saint Tail Meimi Haneoka, a high school student that transforms into the mysterious thief Saint Tail, and steals back what was stolen or taken dishonestly. Meimi’s main pursuer and love interest is classmate Daiki Asuka, the son of Detective Tomoki Asuk...

Once those idiots Piro and Largo and their three girlfriends are out of the way, there are all sorts of possibilities with the Sawatari Family Values (aka Mugitokyo) and Magical Girl Moms Club spinoffs.

Re: [1487] - I Need To Reboot

I thought Ping had no memory of previous configurations. Is this the first indication we've seen that she is aware of this now? Good point. Dunno. She has been constantly evolving though. Either she does remember now or it's just plain obvious that things are awry. Since the first time; Miho has ta...

Re: [1484] Desperate

Hmm, "desperate to live", but not desperate enough to use any extraordinary abilities to stop Ninjagrrl. Looks like Miho is still torn between believing she needs to die and not actually wanting to go through the process. She may not have the strength to go head to head with Ninjagrrl. I don’t know...

Re: [1483] Brawler

I think it's obvious that explaining the story she's in and what she is, changes the story she's in. It changes the understanding of other characters, their motives, actions and words. Actively trying to save or help Miho from her real problems, is equivilant to forcing Miho into one of her typical...
