@DracMonster: Ok, I can see that. "Are you really sure?" I still think she's expecting him not to though.

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

@GreyWolfe: I hear ya, and I see what you mean. But I think that's more Kimiko getting a last tease in. I don't think Piro will be joining her, and I don't thinks she expects him to. We shall see.

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

Well, from my perspective (and I know a lot of folks will disagree), that turned out about as well as it could have. Kimiko heard the "no" that Piro couldn't say straight out, and she not only understood and respected it, she ran with it. She turned his confused mumblings into the equivalent of "go ...

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

May I ask what that belief is based on? Well, I try very hard not to be party to inside info regarding the story, including this kind of thing. This is me interpreting the story as best I can. For the pro-case for why I think Piro and Miho love each other, I'd point you to madbadgers tumblr posts. ...

Re: [1262 Flashback] What become of Piro's old laptop ?

10+ years from now, Fred will bring back that laptop as a vital plot point. Until then, its fate must remain a mystery. Chekov's sniper rifle.

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

should we call this strange melange of Kimiko and Miho "Kimiho"? Yeah, we had settled on that back when Kimiko first put on the toner. I had suggested Mimiko at first (because mimic), but everybody else seemed to like Kimiho better, which is good too. But now it looks like she's going to wash out t...

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

see how Piro is totally non-responsive when Kimiko enacts her version of what she thinks Miho is feeling and what Miho would do Kimiko's performance is for the horde, and maybe for herself in some ways. But Piro doesn't see her as Miho for a single second. That is part of his confusion, and why he'...

Piro has been hurt, but he still oves Miho and they are (slowly and haltingly) finding their way back toget...

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

So, umm, Kimiko was still being Miho? That's some serious method acting. Or maybe this her way of dealing with the fact that Piro wasn't really responding. It gives her an out (Haha, I was just being Miho), and it keeps him from feeling bad about 'rejecting' her. Edit to add: Also, this makes 6 stor...

Why do you think, that girl is the Grandma ? It seems (to me) it's Junpei's sister, more like. I think part of is that Junpei has mentioned his grandma before [1471] , but not a sister. It would be very like Fred to lay the groundwork by mentioning a character ahead of time before really introducin...

Even Piro couldn't be THAT obtuse...........could he? No, he understands this part. He's just nervous and confused and unsure what to do in a larger sense. He is attracted to Kimiko, and he does like her. But he is also still in love with Miho, and they had just been repairing that relationship. He...

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

he previous four comics suggest there is going to be an eventual meeting at The Foxhole of at least three parties: Kimiko and Piro, Miho and Yaku with Junpei, and Ping. I guess Miho might want to see Piro, and Yaku knows where he is. I'm just wondering how that connection might be made in the conve...

That room is awesome.

Piro needs to show a little backbone here. Unfortunately, that's going to mean Kimiko is going to get hurt. I really hope Piro doesn't screw that up and make it worse than it has to be. :(

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

I'm not sure why Ed or Dom would have "friended" Junko in that way. Ed is after Ping, but it was only yesterday(?) that Ping and Junko got this tight, and Junko's "That's Today?" kind of implies that it wasn't just yesterday that they set up the date. For Dom, I can see even less reason. Junko isn't...

shrug off and say 'shit happens'. If I gave the impression that that was Fred's attitude, then I did a very poor job of explaining. If Fred were capable of thinking that way, he wouldn't still be doing megatokyo after 18 years. Fred wants to keep working on the visual novel. He feels he's made a co...
