Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I think you've all been forgetting/ignoring a very valid and important point - what the heck is with the pineapple? And for that matter, where did Junpei's sister even get it from, anyway? Do they just keep whole pineapples laying around for no good reason in that house? The pineapple is an Europea...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Based on the revelation in [1068] Recap Episode: Itz 5howtim3! https://megatokyo.com/strip/1068 we discover that Megatokyo is a virtual world running in the unMod universe rather like Endgame exists in Megatokyo I've come to the conclusion that both Kimiko and Miho are both characters belonging to ...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I wonder, if we did a poll in the forums, who would everyone pick as "closest to perfect?" that would leave us Megumi or Junko if we're talking about 'real girls' only ;) I would include Sayuri and Meimi(!) in there as well, but yes, Megumi is my top pick.

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Rereading the comic, I had a sudden thought: NinjaGrrl and Yaku are going to be very good - maybe great - friends. Maaybe more than that, but serious, lifelong friends for sure. The Next Gen Piro & Largo? Not sure, but maybe.

Or I could be totally off base. But it feels right, you know?

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I would just like to point out that Miho never said she would 'tell' Piro what was up with her, nor did she ever promise to tell him. In 1309 before they leave MegaGamers Miho says she would 'show' Piro whats up with her (if he left the store with her ofcourse). While I don't like Miho, I don't thi...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Over time there's been a lot of complaints about Miho being "Manipulative" After rereading quite a few strips, realizing that at the beginning Miho was attempting to get Ping to serve as her surrogate, it's become plain to me that all of Miho's manipulations were in an attempt to put obstacles betw...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Note that Miho isn't saying "I want to break in on them right now, damn the consequences." She's not stupid - although she looks about as conflicted right now as we've ever seen her - and busting in on them while they're *cough* occupied will have no good result. "I want to see him" can mean almost ...

Re: [1519] Everything to do with me

Fred, thank you very much for that last panel. I laughed out loud, and I needed to. March was pretty bad.

Also, Yaku's expression in panel five is awesome as well. Totally an "Adults are so stupid" grimace.

Re: [1515] Reset?

A wild Yaku appears! She looks like she could use a donut. I was thinking a tranquilizer dart, personally. "It's why we created the whole ninja movie genre in the first place". That is really interesting. It implies that in MT, stories create reality. Like the reason the MT police get to have mecha...

Please don't quote this mess...I wouldn't have double quoted, but I thought that Cidjen's commentary was important.

On one level, this is another chance for Fred to explain the Miho problem to us again. I think most of us here on the forum get it, but it bears repeating for a lot of other fans who don't keep us as well. But I think it's interesting that Ninjagrrl gets it so easily. This might be a first for Miho...

@Roamer Let’s convince Fred to dress Largo up in one of Erika’s Magical Moe-Bo outfits and find out. He did express interest in learning her creepy skill.
