Re: [1504] It wasn't for me

Yeah careful treading is required... He's shellshocked after having seen Miho panic in the hospital room, having saved her life, but not did not have the opportunity to properly talk after Yuki teleported her to the MG store and played the little 'I hate you' pantomime in front of the horde to save ...

Re: [1503] You two

I thought of starting a new thread but the thought I just had, goes back to [1346], [1350], [1351], [1352], [1353], and seems to align with what @iffy said above; knowing what we know now in [1503] and forth. So in the conversation with Komugiko, in the bath house backroom, Miho is quite shocked to ...

Boundaries between fiction and reality are not solid, and fog of war tends to obscure the view quite often and blur it enough that the unprepared can overstep the marks.

Yes that's what I meant - Piro makes sure Miho won't die through her heart disease any more; that diverges the usual story; Kimiko 'channels' some of what she experienced talking with Miho before Piro has shown up himself in the store flat, as well as some of what she sensed while Piro was explainin...

Yes Miho only ever talks about the fans giving her life repeatedly... But what if it's not just fans? After all fans know a character through the work of the actor, who plays, enacts that character, it is the actor who gives life to the character... Role of Kimiko seems to be becoming apparent here,...

Re: Question to Moderators: how would new threads commenting on old(er) story comics fit here? (e.g : 1254 rev after 150

Closest I can find to the explanation is 1403 and followings. Later on it's being said between lines, that Miho was Kotone. But it doesn't seem to fit all the way. Like what was going on before Kimiko was to act Kotone out. Is the Horde that goes after Miho, composed not just of 'creepy fans' but al...

I mean specially named like [1254 revisited after 1504]. Trying to keep on-topic, trying to reconnect the dots knowing what we know now. Specifically for this reason - That girl, asking Kimiko whether she's not playing Miho any more... It's Komugiko isn't it. So she knows something more about Kimiko...

@Sareth, yeah, some damage did occur (as you said, Miho was underage I really doubt that Miho pulled the plug on Piro because she was underage. First of all, from her perspective, she is not. She is over 100 years old and has loved before. The authorities are well aware of what she is, not that she...

Re: [1503] You two

English language in text is pretty gender-neutral, but there are hints, if you know what to look for, that help to establish your relation's gender. It probably is easier after one side uncovers herself as a girl, the male brain starts inserting these subtle hints. If not that, can any expert in jap...

And then during the fight upstairs, he splat at Miho, that Kimiko was grilling him about her... there was only some snugging while in front of the fans ('making out in front of them cree...

EDIT: Jaysus, cidjen. That didn't even occur to me. This being MT, I was pretty sure that something would ensure that Kimiko did not end up playing games using Piro's joystick even though she quite wants to. But what you just suggested actually sounds like the sort of disaster Kimiko would walk qui...

Let's not forget, it is Piroko (a female player) who plays Piro's character in the Megatokyo game universe... (Ref. OSE) She seems to be less than adept in the 'hidden stats' however.

Re: [1503] You two

Miho's motivations can be tricky. Yeah technically she started as the hidden agenda villain, but I think Fred has tied the story back into the earlier stuff well enough that it's all right to say that she has always been more than that. Madbadger was a former forum dweller here, and he wrote a coup...

well let me expand to what I've been thinking of why the 'we won't like Piro when this story is done' seems to fit somewhere... - at the start, before chapter 4, Miho is undeniably portrayed as a villain (not just because Largo thinks so), leeching and living on emotions of others (the hurt ones see...

A persistent game universe, anyone?

Yeah so the title pretty much says it all - any one aware of any real (indie even) game studio to try to develop a system like Endgames ? Back in time then, it would have to be pretty software intensive... but now, even my 10yo computer can (still) run a MMORPG like WoW or Roblox (!) with near insta...
