Re: [1520] What I've been feeling

:shock: I can't believe you said that with a straight face. Kudos, I think. :lol: (And I thought late 80s / early 90s songs were bad about substituting "love" for body parts that wouldn't get on the radio... ) Like, 'sowing the seeds of love ?' :) ♪ What is the color of love... is it warm, is it te...

Re: [1520] What I've been feeling

@cidjen Indeed, but that's hard to do if you're emotionally invested... unless you made bank, to make a really lame pun. Let's say you watch stock market patterns for fun, and you think that stock NKMI is going to go through the roof. If instead NKMI gets a quick bounce then tanks, you might find th...

Re: [1520] What I've been feeling

funny thought though, could you imagine Miho running away to somewhere like South Africa to get away from everything and Kimiko calls her asking 'Can you feel me now?' :lol: the places my mind goes.... Nice. :D ~~~~~ Just saying, after reading some of the other posts in the thread: You might enjoy ...

2) Reread last three comics.
3) Roly rit, Raggy! (as Scooby Doo might say)

Re: [1518] Not Happy, But Interesting

Yes, but what if Fred chimes in with Word of Cod? He might do it, you know... for the halibut. Nice! Now I'm saury that I assumed you'd go for the obvious "Fred herring". Kimiko wouldn't be a speed bump if Miho came in heavy. For some reason, I find myself remembering people also used to call them ...

Hmmmm! @_@ 1. How many actual animes/mangas have actually ended up that way? o_O 2. How likely is i...

Re: [1518] Not Happy, But Interesting

Now I'm starting question the Junpei grandma theory. Surely someone as old as Junpei grandma would have met kitsune before, or at least would have been a little less squeeeee about meeting this one. Unless she's just been teasing both of them mercilessly, sometimes being not-quite honest in the pro...

Wait...this isn't the developmental notes page.... Well, at least no one's figured out yet that when Kimiko wakes up in the notspital years later as the new analog, Piro will have already sought comfort with Miho. Because what we really need is another Kimi ga Nozomu Eien . :ph34r: But it would be ...

Man, Yaku bring out the heavy artillery. *passes around the popcorn* It could be vanity, but I think my comment from Patreon might be worth re-posting.

Re: [1515] Reset?

In this setting, I don't think we're ever going to 'lose' the Miho type of a story... even if only to become an example of how not to live your life. That's the point, actually. The Story is still there. Does it need an Analogue? If it can't have Miho, who will it take? I really hope Kimiko doesn't...

Yeah, only Grandmother would get to be lazy like that regarding an emergency termination order. I get the feeling that she’s more entertained by the whole situation than concerned. For maximum trolling, we might never find out if NinjaGrrl really is Grandma or not. Respectively: Excellent points. "...

Re: [1515] Reset?

It looks increasingly likely that my speculation way back when is accurate: Kunoichi-san is grandma, not imouto. (1471)

Edit: And it would be in keeping with the anime tradition of 400-year-olds looking like they're 14-year-olds.

Doing anything more than heavy petting in the shower is pretty much impossible without some 'assistance'. The movies make it out to be far, far less awkward than it is in reality :P Sez you!

Welcome to "romantic tension". :lol:
I think Kimiko's romantic tension is giving Fred a different kind of tension... headaches. :cry:

And some of the readers seem to be getting Rocky-Horror-style dynamic tension. (^_~)

Re: Fan-made summary - Story - Chapter 12 : Broken [stub] v3.1

Out of curiosity: Who is the intended audience for these summaries?

It's just that it occurs to me that condensing everything down to what we know now, as opposed to what we knew at the time we were reading a given comic, might do a disservice to people who haven't read it sequentially yet.
