Re: [1515] Reset?

Something ‘Vis brought up earlier caught my interest: the creation of an entire genre of ninja movies happened in order to deal with termination orders and similar things? Ninja clans are the Stability Project? Who’s giving them orders and paying them in the first place? I think it's more that the ...

Re: Ninjas and open-frame CRT TVs

Which comics have these exposed CRTs? [1472] I think part of the explanation is that Jumpei doesn't live in this room anymore. He has his apartment next door to Tsubasa's old place [70] . This room is where he grew up, and that was his tv from years ago when he was a teenager. Either Junpei Mom kee...

Re: [1515] Reset?

So are the Ninjas special abilities also horde-powered, like with magical girls and character analogs? I'm struggling to think of any other reason why creating the ninja movie genre would have been important in this sense. It kinda fits with what they already do with character analogues, idols, etc....

Re: [1515] Reset?

Hmm. Is Ninjagrrl not really allowed in Junpei room when he's out? That would kind of imply she's more Junpei sister than Junpei grandma. Or maybe it's that she didn't want to get caught almost killing the woman that Junpei had brought there to protect. Junpei probably wouldn't look kindly upon that...

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

was Fred thinking this far ahead back in the Beer Garden/Anna Millers days? He wasn't. But Fred is great at making old comics work with new story changes, so I wouldn't discount it on that basis. On the other hand, I don't think tying Miho's health directly to Piro makes much sense. Miho's fainting...

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

On one level, this is another chance for Fred to explain the Miho problem to us again. I think most of us here on the forum get it, but it bears repeating for a lot of other fans who don't keep us as well. But I think it's interesting that Ninjagrrl gets it so easily. This might be a first for Miho,...

If someone posts a WIP thread like I did, and it never grows beyond first post, it's totally ok by me that it'll be deleted when the proper / non-WIP one appears. It was worth a try, and thanks for doing that. I just didn't work out. I've deleted the WIP thread just to avoid confusion. The Twitch c...

I'm still betting Ninja Grrl is Junpei Grandma rather than Junpei Sister. But I suppose we'll find out when Yaku and Junpei get there. That should be fun.

We...could just ask Fred? It’s a minor detail, not a significant plot point. I've been letting this just go. I appreciate a good nerd argument, and I know how fun they can be. Sometimes the arguing is more fun than knowing the real answer, and I try to be sensitive to that. But as NinjaDefenestrato...

Someone mentioned Kimi showing pain in panel 2, I am not so sure about that, it could just be she is cold, or maybe is wondering what the hell she is going to do with her hair. And she sure looks happy to see Piro in panel 5. I think it's that she had given Piro an out and was afraid he might actua...

After some discussion in the last comic thread, I'm looking for input on how best to handle new story discussion threads. We have a more diverse group here than we used to.

If no one is allowed to mention even what they perceive as the mood of the next comic, because they have seen it, then the forum discussion with the likes of me really dies out. I understand.

Re: [1512] Which one

It also improves my impression of Masamichi - not only did he survive the experience more or less unscathed, but he's determined to see that Yuki takes as little damage from her own learning curve as he can possibly arrange. Which may be why he's willing to have Largo around her. Largo's a first cl...

Re: [1512] Which one

Next comic will cut to Miho at Ninja compound singing quietly to herself.

Where Oh where are you tonight
Why did you leave me here all alone
I searched the world over and thought I'd found true love
You met another and pffft you was gone.
