Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. That sequence (1495-1500) exactly. Especially 1497, where the mob rejects Yuki as an MG because she doesn't look the part, and 1498/1499, where it's clear that talking about her past as a MG, and how she didn't fit the mold, is causing Ririka physical pain. It begs the question, if Yuki had been ...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

We should probably both post your comment at the start of most of our posts: "WARNING! This is Way Longer Than It Should Have Been!" 1. It makes me wonder how you select things like race in MT. Is it something you choose, or is it like your hidden stats, where your profile determines it for you. If ...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

We could start a huge tangent about how much effort and time you have to invest into something in Megatokyo to give it some degree of sentience, if the rules allow for it, and to what degree. If the Kitsune here have the powers that they do in the old legends, I would imagine that they could do it m...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

It looked like the origami was just getting scattered as she moved, Junpei more talking thinking answering than doing any ninja-fast moves, and the shirt moving around as position shifted initially fairly quickly. Although maybe some of that is because panel 2 is kinda ill defined or at least doesn...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Random observations... P1: Today's vocabulary word is 'discombobulated'. The little origami foxes appear to be attentively waiting for her response. That, or they're checking to make sure she's still breathing, considering how red she's turned. P2: Foxies fall down and go boom! (BTW, I pulled a musc...

More fox folding... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEy87p7SfgY Wonderful link. 19 minutes for a single fox; Junpei has been there for quite some time.

Re: [1525] "This important too"

This was an unwanted shift. I wanted more resolution with Pinko vs Stranger Danger, but what evs! I think Fred planned this, perceiving that a lot of the fans would need a break from the perceived scuminess of Ping's date. It's something he's done before. Just think of this as a chance for us to sp...

Re: [1525] "This important too"

It's nice. In some ways, Yaku asking Junpei to wait in Mugi's room was a stamp of approval. I think Mugi will realize that once she gets over the embarrassment and accepts that Junpei is attracted to her. I like the fox origami. It's a very sweetly touching scene, pretty old-fashioned. Which makes ...

you don't like where Ping is going, she's gonna accidentally plug her data port into closed off Internet cctv network and see... everything. But it's OK, maybe she gets more protective of the 'thing that is supposed to be hers'. I don't particularly like where Miho wants to go... even if she wants ...

Re: [1524] 13 cm

Watching Ping panic here is pretty painful. Which is kinda whiplash-y when you look at the awesome job Fred does with her expressions; the comic is really becoming consistently awesome in that way. The naked fear throughout, the confusion in panel 2, the screwing-up-her-determination look in panel 3...

"Six million logic functions, maybe more... they make me pick the paper up off the floor." - Marvin - I see it as Ping's AI is evolving (probably partly due to Largo's tinkering) and she may go beyond her original programming. I think she already realizes that she is more than the sum of her parts....

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe Megatokyo, at least in its current form, was created by Sony to provide a safe space for training the EDS prototypes It wouldn't seem narrative-wise that Sony created MT, although they certainly could be using it. Yet and then, there's the other potentials like that to us it's Mega, to those ...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

EDIT: And if one of the most popular avatars for games disappears, wouldn't that have an impact on the market? And there's a kill order for Ping. Are they worried about Ping channeling renegade Miho? Or that Miho could influence or control Ping somehow? Huh, you just made me realize that a lot of t...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe a main point of her being released only partially finished is for Megatokyo to be some sort of a training ground to make Ping (more) human. An experiment by whoever's behind it, Sony or otherwise... Well they did send Ed to retire her, so if this guy is working for someone, maybe it's not the...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Whoah, we are actually inside Ping's thought processes/programming. Very cool. And "Get PIe" is a key determinant of branch paths. That makes it far, far more important than we thought. I forget - did we ever find out what Ping uses pie for? I know it came up in conversation.... But he brought up pi...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Okay, not on the Patreon yet, but that title seriously made me LOL. Am now picturing Ping:
A) Frantically looking for a good wifi signal so she can download it, or
B) Frantically looking for an exit based on the request made by her date.

Ping is just cute regardless of what she's doing.

It's a sad thought... but you know, there's a 0.00001% chance any male who would design "realistic" gynoid parts for mass-production wouldn't "give them a test run, just to make sure". Hopefully they hadn't uploaded her personality seed core yet. Tested for quality by #17... Gyaaaaah... makes me th...

Okay, going to bend the fourth wall a little here. We don't know anything about this guy directly, which is making everyone speculate wildly. Given the setting, some of the speculation is darker than normal. However, I can't imagine Piro taking the comic anywhere near that direction. We're 1500 epis...

I'd like to point out that if he indeed realizes that Ping is a gynoid and not a high school student that any laws that apply will be for robots and other synthetic entities and not the laws that apply to human minors.
