Re: [1547] realistic girl architectures

Yeah, he's a man completely absorbed by a task he's been given. Create a realistic game companion.... So more like a grown up otaku, I guess? Also, the more real you are, the more problems will the real girls have with you... The old Chekhov Gun fires again... So that would mean then... Those charac...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

creepy, that everybody seems to assume it is. I argued repeatedly from the start that there was no strong evidence for the then current sense of "creepy" (pervert who dates young girls). Above I am arguing his attitude to Ping is (at least potentially) quite callous but not (the current sense(s) of...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

...I am starting to doubt his motives (at least the "deeper" ones) will be made clear in a small number of strips, possibly not even by the end of the chapter. If we use prior important (not critical) reveals as a baseline average, we should know in about three chapters. Or to put it another way, t...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

I don't consider it reasonable that he would be going out on EK dates without Sony's knowledge or approval; in that case he would need to shell out all the cash himself, and why would he bother doing that when Sony will cover all the expenses if things are done above-board? 1) He could well be doin...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Well, this is a bit of a twist... Darrin's devotion to him not being a creeper seems fairly more plausible. Praising with faint damns, I can live with that. 8-) As long as everyone else is pointing out having called it in 1522, I will add that I believe mine was the first post in that thread to cla...

Call me cynical, but I suspect the intended audience is anyone who will pay for the story... That sorta makes me doubly-not the audience they expect to cater to :) “I am shocked, shocked that freeloading is going on here.” At least I am paying Fred off by doing the translation... But heh.

Oh, so he's NOT just a creep. He was using Junko to gather data for Ping's reactions? Random thoughts - -Does this mean Junko can sue for lost wages as a professional consultant from Sony? She's been paid for her time already, though. Hired under false pretenses, lied to about the nature of what th...

Re: [1546] Gauging intent

Calling him creepy would be like, calling your girlfriend's dad creepy... I mean, technically, that is what he is. Pings' Dad. And he has no idea that his daughter is just being EDUCATED. In the topic that was supposed to be sealed within and not part of any game... Wait. So Ping did not have the da...

The comic, with working title of 'a silent foxgirl and an old man at a table' looks like went through 'final assembly' 2 days ago (writing dat still on 18 jan 2019, it's 23:26 where I am) - hopefully all is OK in Fredrin-land?

Re: Whatcha watchin' / readin' Q1 2019

Masamune-kun's Revenge was hit and miss(mostly hit), but kinda dropped the ball at the end. I think there's a sequel to it out now. Definetly binge-worthy. Well I'm on chapter 46 so already after the twist is fully revealed; It kinda has the vibe that the artist(s) must have wanted to end it there ...
