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...

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

New version 3.1 just posted as first post in thread! v3: more rewording & rearranging, condensation (but not only, the grrl at the ninja compound may actually not be Junpei's sister, right ?)

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

I don't think so. Remember, it's Piro, he'll figure out a way to c*ck block himself. He does not have to do anything hardly anything, just let Kimiko take the helm and sail that ship thru the night right into port and slip it into a safe, little birth. Piro's penchant for inaction is his best ally ...

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

Except, there are a few accumulated details that would really determine, what kind of ending will Piro's story be like :- - the effect of ninjaediting of Miho's story (and/or Yaku's paw on it) - the 'polygon bump' (that Miho only just learned about, and Kimiko still doesn't know) - or maybe another ...

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

Umm... is everyone really just accepting Kimiko's claim of "acting" as Miho at face value? My first thought was that this was Kimiko's excuse to distance herself and protect herself emotionally about Piro's reluctance and hesitation to do more with her. In fact I thought that was so obvious that I ...

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

I can't help but notice that in panel 5 Kimiko's "gown" was tied in the back, but a couple panels later it's falling off like it's untied. Also, Kimiko doesn't even seem to notice. Did Piro just develop ninja skills? It's more like, the fabric is flapping all around with motion, moving up and down,...

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

The first allows for a relationship. The second would be hell. I think this might be part of why the Ninja got the kill order; Whoever issued it is terrified of the second possibility and they want to revert the change while they still can . If the fans go this way and force her into that role, the...

see how Piro is totally non-responsive when Kimiko enacts her version of what she thinks Miho is feeling and what Miho would do Kimiko's performance is for the horde, and maybe for herself in some ways. But Piro doesn't see her as Miho for a single second. That is part of his confusion, and why he'...

seeing that Piro is not keen to go back to his 'old Miho flame'. See what darrin, iffy and I was discussing around 1509... While I appreciate iffy and darrin's discussion, I have to disagree. Piro has been hurt, but he still oves Miho and they are (slowly and haltingly) finding their way back toget...

Re: [1262 Flashback] What become of Piro's old laptop ?

I'm not convinced :) laptops of the kind in 2001 were built like tanks, over engineered... also electronics even if dead, doesn't mean someone can't pull the hard drive out. Also, i don't think the DJ booth was near to Kenji's office (I think it actually was on the opposite end of the CoE)... so EMP...

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

Poor Kimiko. While actors do portray characters, in order to make them “real,” they must put a bit of their own emotion into them. Even method actors begin building their character’s world view from within themselves. For a short time, Kimiko got to be the woman Piro loved. Now she has to stop. Loo...

No, of course you are right here. We're being too binary in this 'selection'.

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

Another example of Miho's covered feelings for Piro, (1283) panel 4 and 5. Her reaction to him not being even physically attracted any more, genuinely sad. Him - not very amused either, but not as sad as she is.

I do not disagree with that it happened - my point is more about finding 'why' all of this had to happen; So the explanation I thought about, that's turned taboo now, is extremely caustic and playing on the lowest levels.

So, an ultimatum between making a choice or be gone from this game.

Twisted but omg. Or otherwise Dom ...
