Re: [1588] things left behind

You might be overthinking it on the projection issue. While it's present and accurate, it's also human and therefore inevitable. And I don't think it's projection to point out that the Piro we have standing here today isn't the same Piro who showed up in MT, clueless, broke, and hung over. Neither ...

Re: [1588] things left behind

Or maybe I'm just a romantic. No that's fine, just ... this might not just be a story this straight forward ;) As in Invis' theory of layered game worlds, Megatokyo being the (mini)game played by the UnMod characters when they're not doing 'work' in their own universe; so Piroko (UM) plays Piro in ...

Re: [1588] things left behind

:lol: Looks like I have a pretty unpopular opinion. If it turns out Piro/Kimiko spent the night more ... significantly, I think I would actually be disappointed. They have known each other for about a month (or did I miscount time?). Feels way too fast a progression for a relationship. Who said any...

Re: [1588] things left behind

This discussion reminded me of https://fredart.com/projects/ZGPY40 . This sums up the aspect of Kimiko I was discussing. Of course she doesn't smell bad or turn your stomach for how else can she lure you in and consume your soul in order to leave you a desiccated husk? Recall the train incident whe...

Re: [1588] things left behind

There is apparently some confusion about the exact nature of Nanasawa Kimiko. She is utterly soulless, even moreso than poor Ping who is at least self aware enough to realize her situation. Kimiko smoothly insinuated herself into Piro and Miho’s affairs like a slightly imperfect doppelgänger. Miho ...

It's generally good policy to never attempt to write yourself into MegaTokyo because Fred will do very bad things to you there.

IIRC Erika and Largo have no clue that anyone that they know is on the premises
True. But I'd counter than not having a clue has never stopped Largo before.
In fact, I think it's one of his true strengths.

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

After doing some rereading, I think this chapter is going to be about Megumi (and maybe some other people) answering Grandmother's question from [1545]: What are you worth if no one loves you? Megumi's currently in Grandma's love hotel, literally surrounded by couples who love each other - Piro/Nana...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

I would say, probably not. Megumi has all the raw power she's ever likely to need, and then some. I think what she needs is someone warm, to be comfortable around, who she doesn't feel the need to always watch over. She spends a lot of her time and energy taking care of other people and straighteni...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

Here's my prediction for the next strip, provided it's the continuation of Megumi's morning: unless she actually turns around to close the door behind her, she's about to get a big dose of reality really fast as she slams the door and catches her nine tails. Yep. And if she's cloaking the ears & ta...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

So...any predictions about what actually happened between Piro and Nanasawa? This being P+N, the most absurd possibility is the most likely. If they did read shampoo bottles all night, Megumi might just lock them in a closet. An extradimensional closet.

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

There is an odd factor involved here. Piro is able to shadowstep or walk through the places in between. Recall Mugi’s amazement at his ability to travel with Miho. If he weren’t already involved in a love triangle with Miho and Kimi then he might be a good match for Megumi I would say, probably not...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

I'll bet Erika, Largo and Junpi can all see them too. Virtually any non-mundane should be able to, unless she's hiding them. In which case only those of great power or special immunity (Ninjas?) will be able to. ... And we are still not sure Megumi knows she has manifested her 9 tails for 100% sure...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

Megumi is effectively a new goddess and she deserves worshipers, at least I'm wanting to see that :) She'll never replace 'The Lady with 1000 tails' for me, but I would definitely offer up some strawberry flavored mochi ice cream at her Shinto shrine ;) Just based on what we've seen, I would think ...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

Up until this point Sonada Yuki has been the most powerful entity in MegaTokyo. Yep more powerful than Miho who very nearly destroyed the entire city by accident TWICE. You saw how the TPCD reacted to Yuki's appearance when she shoplifted a zombified 'zilla . Megumi is several orders of magnitude m...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

Megumi is do adorable and caring. When she thinks of problems it's not herself she thinks of but other people. Even if they are idiots.... Maybe, but she also simply left Ashe alone. In fairness there were hormones..... And a desperate need for a change of scenery, and maybe some lingering embarras...

I, Teddy Werebear, volunteer as romantic tribute to stop Megs from destroying the world. I think I am able to stuff her genie back in the box. What? I am doing this because I care... Nice try, Teddy, but I already staked out a claim a couple of years ago, back in the discussion about [1526]. ... I ...

Re: Higher res old pages?

I can only remember the one page which compared Piro's and Largo's world view. The first one noticing cosplay and manga shops everywhere, the other seeing potential dangers, zombie spawning points and makeshift fearbots. Where there other similar pages for other characters? Sounds like NNM: reality...

OK, that's both scary and creepy.
