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

Nothing personal, but this is just me wanting the "poor schmuck" to win something for a change in terms of personal relationships. I suppose I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic in a sense. Can't fault me for that now, can you? The problem here is that Fred is determined that Piro should never 'win' in...

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

Hmm, the repeated reference to the children's game ('floor is lava') and Kimiko being playful, is turning Piro remarkably child-like (the second-to-last panel, is it me, or Piro's proportions there resemble a pre-teen boy? The kind of teen- pre-teen that does not have all the men's hormones yet, and...

Re: Fan-made summary - Story - Chapter 12 : Broken [stub] v3.1

I am not trying to anticipate the story; It's more like I am trying to 'report' on what happened (past tense deliberate) and condense to give an idea of the story plot node moments; But I try to make the effort to not include too many details, it isn't a re-telling of the story; If anything, more co...

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

Totally different interpretation: Comparing panel 5 with panel 4 , you can see that PIro's hand in panel 5 wanders under the dress of Kimiko; [ quote comic=1475 ] What's wrong with you that you'd even think that [ /quote] ;) In panel 4, he has hands apart at some distance from her thighs; in panel ...

@xion5139 : If they posted about health problems more than they post about other issues, that is, if the health issues became a dominant excuse, I would have been less understanding than I am; I can't tell how much less understanding would I be, but I have a feeling, that so would others who care ab...

Re: The Visual Novel

Well that is my point... The health issues don't just simply go away, therefore there's no point dwelling about them over and over. They are more than just an eater of time, they are an emotional drain. Repeatedly dwelling into that territory with such questions is just terrible. So unless they post...

I did not mean the heart disease of Mr Gallagher. He got better and that is widely known. Neither did I mean the illness of his wife, she too got better, though that illness is imo more grave and dangerous than the first one.

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

We saw what the Horde managed to do to Piro between the moment when he and Miho disappeared in it, to when Piro emerged back from the piles of rubble.. torn off jacket, damaged shirt, no tie, scraped, bruised, nearly destroyed clothing. Luckily Yuki did pull a 'I hate you' scene convincing enough, t...

Outside of the quarters, she found Miho still suffering from the retching. She approached, kneeled beside the pil...

Re: The Visual Novel

But digging into the man for not disclosing the health issues, as you (@xion5139) tried to imply, seriously makes your judgement questionable. @cidjen How many updates have we had over the years citing health issues? We get a sorta update in the comments now explaining the reasons for the delays bu...

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

Why believe that Piro was in danger... Well in the school incident, horde only lost interest when he and Yuki played out the little 'i don't love you any more' drama (as relayed later by Yutaka to Yuki). He was in similar kind of danger when he was at the Animate event, but he managed to spin it. Bu...

Well it is the source of a pretty powerful story :) that keeps people coming back to read and comment on all the little details trying to predict where it is going. To wait for the next comic.

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

Given how much information can be 'distilled' about the past from the comics alone, I'd say treating the Endgames extra material is entirely justified. After all, it's Endgames, that Miho dreams after collapsing in the school bathroom. It's where the plot (I think) starts. About not being 'in the fl...

Re: The Visual Novel

How about you tell the truth that Fred got sidetracked with health issues of his family and used the kickstarter funds to pay for medical bills instead of game development. How much money does Fred require to work full time on this game exactly? He got $299,000 minus kickstarter fees out of only $2...

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

Endgames may be allegory to us readers... But I should point out that we don't just know the portions shown when Piro talks with Kimiko or Largo with Erika. There are e.g. flashback scenes when Miho faints at school (or actually does but respawns immediately?). There is the whole omake and dpd theat...

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

Plot twist: Kimiko tries to wash the toner out with warm water and it sticks, so she is stuck in the Miho personification, at least until her hair regrows. She colours her hair to that colour until all the toner is off... Then she notices that she likes this colour better, so she sticks with it. Pir...
