Re: [1517 WIP] orders given

Before this thread is locked down : is it possible to enable / does this version of forum software have the cool feature the old one had, to display all replies in the thread without pagination ? Because that was a good one... I don't know if that's supported, but I'll ask the site admins. Comic po...

Re: [1516] A New Story

I think that you miss the point that Yaku isn’t concerned about the effect of the story on Miho so much as she wants a story that will make her mom happy even if she might be dabbing tears from her eyes. No, I'm concerned about how Yaku's actions are going to help in the larger sense (ie fixing Mih...

Re: [1516] A New Story

I'm not quite sure what to make of this. I like how Yaku seems to understand that it's Miho's story that is the problem, rather than Miho herself. But is this a good solution to the problem? I think there are two problems with Miho's story. First, it's not a happy story, with her tragic unloved deat...

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.
