*sniffles* Moeko is good people.

We all know who that bad Irish magical girl is, of course.

[1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

Fred has posted the comic to his Patreon. He'll post it to the main site and elsewhere probably tomorrow.

Re: MIHO BLANKET

Sent PM for 3rd time, still waiting months later Sorry again for the delay and thank you for the PM. We were hopeful that Fred was going to be able to tackle the shipping backlog this summer, with the break from his schoolbus driving job. The continuing decline in the health of his parents and fath...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

How does Miho factor into this? When Moeko recently appeared in her dying vision as a little girl in a nightgown, she yelled something like “You had so much life, you gave some of it to me!” So...how did that work, exactly? I'll take a stab at that, though I'm not totally sure I'm right here. Like ...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

Can't Fred post it here himself? I mean, does he even bother visiting the forums? Fred does visit the story discussion threads a couple of times after he posts a comic. He likes to see if people are getting what he had tried to say. He has posted to these threads before, but that's pretty rare. Thi...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

I think I'm a bit confused by panel 3: so Moeko first saw the story when her mother played it on their VHS (?), then she later became the idol, then fell into a coma and Erica became the idol? Who was the idol that Moeko saw? Or am I misunderstanding things? Moeko is a real magical girl, just like ...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

I have always greatly admired CS Lewis's defense of fairy tales and children's literature. I think, had he lived long enough to know of them, he'd have felt the same about magical girls. You don't have to give up little girl stuff when you become a big girl, Moeko. Never stop dreaming. My defence co...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

Hmm. Is “out here” all of MegaTokyo? What happens when Moeko puts it away for good? Does the world lose another sad, dying girl? Or does it stop like a finished game, sitting on a shelf? Well, for Moeko herself, the second. For everyone else, the first. In some ways, Moeko is a mirror image of Miho...

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

Yup, looks that way. Not as a full-out anime, perhaps. Those take scheduling and money and such. Erika still has people in the industry like Sayuri who like her, but I imagine she ticked off a bunch of others with the way she quit before. But maybe a full-out anime isn't required to tell the rest of...

Ya know, that's pretty good for 16. Heck of a lot better than I could have done. I think you really captured the style of Fred's character art from those years.

Fred doesn't tell me everything that's going on in his life either, but as far as I know nothing has substantially changed in the few months since then. I know it's not enough, but f...

I can do this every month if you need me too in order for it to sink in. Umm, no. I don't agree with your point, nor (I think) do many of Fred's Patreon supporters. But it's been fair that you should have the chance to make that point, as long as you are not obnoxious about it, and for the most par...

Largo has a lot of flaws, but one positive trait of his that I admire is his sincere supportiveness to the people he cares about, and even people he barely knows.
