Re: [1498] That Response

Oh, I just noticed. I guess Largo (in panel 7) is thinking something along the lines of: "Y3s, go, 60… I wouldn’t wish you back ag4in.” …although that would either require Largo to have watched Pride and Prejudice (BBC 1995 edition) — which I doubt — or the thought to be completely Largo-original.

Poor Yuki… =(
I’m glad Largo is there — at least he takes her seriously, just the way she is, and he values her for who she is as an ally.
Largo knows.
(relevant comic snippet)
Exactly! =)

Re: [1498] That Response

Whaha! "Stop. Please do not damage my love of the genre." That’s it right there. They love a genre, not people. Way to go Erika (for turning on them after those harsh words) and Ririka for her rather Meimi-like way of talking some self-respect back into Yuki. I hope Yuki will actually pick it up. Re...

Re: [1497] More skilled than sparkly

I do wonder, though, if Ririka chose to introduce Yuki as the magical girl so openly with the expectation of them ‘silly boys’ rejecting Yuki as a possible candidate for the alarm party. =?

Re: [1495] setting off alarms

Woo-ha. 8D

Ririka is hurt, but in character and doing her duty.
Say, is every self-pronounced superhero scared to death of magical girls?

Gotta pity them. =/

…Them. Not the magical girls. =)

Thanks Fred, for this performance!

Kobayashi in his underwear and bandages can’t outcreep that — even to her. And actually, it would be the right thing for her to do — and help her get over her embar...

Reading both your replies, paarfi and Invisigoth, I can’t help but feel even more sorry for Yakugashi than I already did before these two last Sketchy Comics. I really do. Yakugashi seems… different than the past generations of her family. Seems like she has actually been taught by her mom’s behavio...

As I understand it ... with three or more tails a kitsune can cast illusions, and so hide tails and ears if desired.

That should already be enough to really mak...

Who are you and what have you done with Iffy? :lol: The main question for Mugi and Yakugashi seems to be if grandma kitsune is any bit like Junpei’s grandma as described by the ninja himself — a character who enjoys teasing those she holds dear. But — teasing or not — I think her first objective wa...

Hey nice! A Sketchy Side Story! =) Uhm… Apart from being an MT story addict, I have no prior knowledge of the entire kitsune concept, so you could sell me anything as common knowledge. I guess that makes me sort of an ideal testing platform for this experiment. Well… in my opinion, it works great, F...

Okay, so we didn’t get Ping => frog.

Instead, we got a hilarious Zom-Zom => girl.

Thank you, Fred!!!

I also loved Meimi putting on that TPCD helmet!!!

By the way, those eyes of Cha, in panel 5 — have we ever seen eyes like those in MT so far? Nice! =D
