Re: What are you watching/reading Q1 2020?

Runway de Waratte (Smile Down the Runway) - I've found that the reasons I like this show are: 1) I'm enamored with physical beauty, and a show about modeling and the fashion industry is going to have tons of it, and 2) I quite like the relationships in the show. As far as the story and the drama, t...

Re: New Image by Fred of Girl Phase Moeko and Miho

More seriously, the Irish surname is a nice touch -- does that reflect Miho's alleged Irish roots, or does her story about her roots take on an Irish cast because of her "story" in "Girl Phase"? This is either what makes this story play out as it is, Or, how Ibara-san senior puts it, 'it's not impo...

Re: [1570] when your story has changed

Out of your entire career of making ridiculous posts about Miho in SD this by far is the most ridiculous. I'm actually impressed.

Re: [1569] redemption

Otaku Power may be a lethal force. But can you really see it causing love to happen between two people? To me, the power of the otaku seems to be too destructive, and they too self centered. The comparison to a boa constrictor comes to mind… =/ Yeah just look at last panel of 1098/first panel of 10...

Re: [1569] redemption

This is Fred Gallagher’s universe. Anything might happen. True that. I agree with you about the sex and increased intimacy. But I don’t think Kimiko’s fans get to decide whether the relationship between Kimi and Piro actually is or isn’t what they imagine it to be. Imagine the horror… Heh they done...

And who got tricked into pushing the wheelchair with Largo and Erika? Right.

Just not sure what is Piro going to do but. Draw like he's never drawn before. Weeeeellllll... He drew a pic of Kotone and was full of fandom for her character and liked the fact that Kimi was to give her a voice. He probably got the part to do the art for the story of Kotone. Now I don't know what...

Re: [1569] redemption

I believe Erika is herself, playing out the personality of Moeko written for the anime. That this personality is a bit different, is not surprising, but she is herself, not Moeko, here. Also she has Contacts and the collaboration between Sayuri and Yakugashi for the new story could actually be cool....

Well as proven by the Circuity Omake, they're _all_ actors - so they can repeat acting the scene out to their hearts content [and directors] to make sure no unneeded smirks go where they don't need to, in the Main Story... Circuity had a lower budget so not many repeats allowed [as proven by Kimi x ...

Cidjen... that sounds like a version of Johnie Cochran's "Chewbaca Defense." Rhyming slang for "it doesn't make sense"? Perhaps. But it's (to me) better than any alternative (_I_) could come up with.
