Re: [1516] A New Story

Which diner are you talking about in plays to hurt? Miho or Kimiko? Miho. (At Megagamers ostensibly to confront Piro, interacts with Yuki Piro Ping Erika & otaku.) The other, between the 'diner rescue' and the CoE, with Dom Kimiko & Piro on phone. The examples of what she's doing often includes eit...

Re: [1516] A New Story

The goal and what potentially might get carried out is wonderfully confusing. Since Yaku doesn't really know Piro, does this mean he now gets written out of her story entirely? Might be about time he's not a major part of that story. Given that he has jettisoned a large part or most of the past alre...

Re: [1516] A New Story

Nice, earlier Miho might be pondering the family member having just suggested a reset might fix things, and being questioned if that's what she really wants, and it appears surprising, but of course involves being killed. And boom the potential perceived danger has vanished. Is gone, superseded by a...

Re: [1515] Reset?

Just because something is simple and fits doesn't mean it's the truth, even if nobody can tell the difference, I guess we might say. If she (herself, just Miho the person, out and about in Tokyo, intruding and interfering and interacting) is not supposed to have fans of her own, doesn't have stories...

Re: [1515] Reset?

the creation of an entire genre of ninja movies happened in order to deal with termination orders and similar things?

Re: [1515] Reset?

On the premise, I think, that so far she could not evade her death one way or another, for too long... 'I cannot escape it, I tried'... it happened to her so many times, but she still has the hope, that some day the curse will be removed ? So she says. Sometimes. So she behaves like. Occasionally. ...

Re: [1515] Reset?

Junpei could be kind of embarrassed, or grinning about his {whatever ninjagirl is}, or sheepish about the circumstances of bringing Yakugashi here. It appears more a humorous look than something else, perhaps, but of course that doesn't prove anything. I suspect that Ninja Grrl is very high ranked i...

Re: [1515] Reset?

Well, random family member, Junpei's sister/mother/grandmother, interloper; she seems more curious about what's going on, more interested in playing with the Analogue, gives the impression of trying to gather information she doesn't have. That could just be more illusionary noise though, and there i...

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

The mysteries of the Necrowombicon defy explanation. Although that's been "known" for quite a while by many of us, a topic of conversation now and then here and there. And as far as names and potential source material, and what it means, I wouldn't necessarily put much stock in any given callback an...

So if this thing here is actually some AI projecting a physical manifestation to Megatokyo what might that reflect in panel one's honking. Well. 96, a real ancient cave of evil. How fortuitous. And such a grand tome! Let's see what else. 113 and then ? Last seen apparently in the past, 1405 Curious.

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

I suspect this fluidity within the Story is part of its powers, used to enhance the effectiveness of it on different people, or as protective camo for both Miho and the Story itself. Or both. We might well suppose so, and I don't disagree, but we can really of course only guess. Plus as we know, we...

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

I think what we are seeing is that Miho was a real person but has been corrupted into an Analogue... Unless it's the other way around, or something entirely different. ;) Also exactly so, that's it. Yet whichever way we each see it, it appears it could be a lot of things. Which of them it is, diffi...

The active listening, "Existing more as a character than a real person." If Miho has been some mystic amalgamation of characters and not really here, that might be what we've been seeing all along.

Curious. Is this grrrrl serious. Or is it just more testing. If it ever was a test. Well, she ninjagrlll suggests she knows Junpei. Maybe that's not true.

Re: Fan-made Summary - Story - chapter 10 : AFK v5.5

Nothing too major except perhaps the timeline of what Piro does and a few other things. Although what Piro finds in the room isn't so much exactly as minor as signs of a physical struggle as if there was a fight. More so he finds no Miho and a broken window., wind blowing, everything knocked over. M...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Ed gets respawned or cloned, who knows about either Ibara or Dom. But likely they're all as resilient as anything else in MT so far. Yet they are also all three of them hopelessly outclassed by everything else in MT so far. It remains to be seen if Dom's machinations, posthumous or otherwise ;) wind...

Even if Dom was in charge of the company, and not just a field agent who is being more tactical about it (like by attempting to go behind the scenes as with the game studio etc instead of dealing with ninja or traipsing around the CoE) ? Whatever the case, Dom still ended up at Megagamers not making...

Re: [1512] Which one

But that is specifically Miho's handle, whereas iffy I believe is asking whether it can be confirmed or not that the Endgames character had that same name (or if that is just yet another forum assumption). Not so much asking as pointing out what's likely and fits. That is, our available "evidence" ...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

The look on Kimiko's face in panels 3 and 5 seems somewhat reminiscent of the emotions displayed around 946 and 949. So, perhaps why Seraphim mentioned Asmodeus is to gloat in the whole angel/devil conscience thing sort of way. Not that he ever seemed to do so much as try and generically corrupt Pir...
