Re: Fan-made summary - Story - Chapter 12 : Broken [stub] v4.1

Posted next version as top-post, this is a backup of v4.1 v4.1 - affecting just 1 paragraph, shortened the TMI on what happens at Junko's. Not justified to make entirely new version. v4 : more condensing and rearranging. v3.1: shortening the TMI. v3: more rewording & rearranging, condensation (but n...

Re: Fanfic: Save Point - Overdue - Special Foxes

[inspired by reading the twitch discussion about Kitsune, around comic 1514, in video posted 25 Feb 18, vid 232718220] Somehow, their flight the next day, has been cancelled. FC Hayasaka was going to spent the morning arguing over the phone with upstairs, that having a bunch of aching women moping a...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

I don't think the small matter of being crushed under a shelf (or 2), and weight of Yutaka and Yuki would deter someone who came back after being ran over by a delivery cart. He is merely delayed. As is Ed. Though Ed was Tetris-ed, Erika-elbowed and hamster-bombed. That's gotta leave a mark. They bo...

Re: [1512] Which one

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...

Re: [1512] Which one

Unfortunately this puts us back to square one for iffy's question, because the observed facts are also explained by the (only slightly more complicated) hypothesis that a) Miho uses "m0h" for her handle, and "moh" for the Endgames character; and b) people pronounce both as "moh". Again the main iss...

Re: [1512] Which one

In 1340 it is definitely spelled M zero H. Since Mugi knows Miho's Avatar and handle and username in Endgames, it seems fitting that she used that as the handle to describe her in her phone.... In 1205 you have MOH and other kinds of 'oh' side by side with same font. IMO tis obviously spelled M Oh H...

The distillery is that old, but the bottle and label is fairy modern and shows the whisky are 17 years old at time of bottling – zoom in on the 6th panel.

I've been reading this comic since forever, and this is certainly a pivotal milestone IMHO! I'm glad Piro made this choice. ☺ I personally never considered Miho a viable option, and not just because she messed with him in a video game, but because of her age. Isn't she still a high school student? ...

@cidjen Those are bigger issues, not loose ends that can be wrapped up to end a chapter. Megatokyo will be around for years to come, to deal with questions like the ones you’ve brought up. True. I don’t see Piro leaving Japan anytime soon, anyway. Especially not if he does well at Lockart. or gets ...

Re: [1512] Which one

I have to ask though, why does "most people" have to be the threshold here? What possible positive outcome could posting 1513-relevant material in the 1512 thread (again, in the period before 1513 has shown up on megatokyo.com itself) ever have, to weigh against the negative outcome of spoiler mate...

[...] My larger objection to relying on spoiler tags for this would be that it's a lot less likely to be observed and, I would guess, more difficult to enforce. People who come here wanting to say something about 1513 are gonna go ahead and do that; they might not think what they're saying is "all ...

:) Plus what I see as a loose end(s) : - the Little Polygon Bump in Endgames, - Miho might have been ninja-edited from death for now, but for a permanent save I think, Lockart would have to change the story to give it better 'good' ending or make the 'bad' ending ... completely unremarkable so that ...

This page is like a turning point in the entire comic. I'd say it's as much a turning point as the last two chapters a turning circle. A calm before a storm, is what it is. Much needed calm but hopefully the storm will not tear us apart, again. Actual love scenes would be a (edited) fanservice :) W...

Re: [1512] Which one

Interesting thoughts about Endgames. This Miho is technically different than the one who got permabanned, since she died and was resurrected in a slightly altered form. How does that parse with the game’s ToS? (by different form, I mean that this time she seems to have been “called back” by Ping an...

Well easiest to implement and not requiring much mod attention, would be if people who watched twitch, and wanted to talk about it here, would have some way to have a thread for themselves, until the comic gets posted to main site, and same for the Patreon users. Kinda like a 'beta tester's area but...
