Re: [1512] Which one

The anecdote I recall (presumably from old forum discussion but I don't remember where or from how long ago, sorry) is that a character would go for years without a name, and then one day Fred would tell the transcript people "Oh, his name is Flabbanabba" Many years ago there was something like tha...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Right now the real thing appears to be playing another character that is interacting with what might be the head of the ninja family. Although it'll be interesting to see what happens when whatever Yaku's potentially crazy ideas might be touch down. Assuming she gets there and inside. It'll be curio...

Re: [1512] Which one

Last panel of 1210 I forgot she calls him that in 1210 at the end, I remember pointing that out at some time. Still, there is that all caps font thing problem in comic. Although in comic it doesn't look like a 0 to me, it looks like an o instead, but that doesn't prove anything really does it. As f...

Re: [1512] Which one

Wow cool catch! That kid sort of has M0h's hair I think. It's only a 'herring' if explicitly denied by Fred I think. :) It wouldn't seem that much of anything out of story comic that's written or said (confirmed or denied) necessarily means it counts as anything, until if and when it is in story co...

Re: [1512] Which one

It seemed pretty clear Erika was aware of what Largo said to her in clubbing may be required . Even if the obvious isn't, that still she was up for going along with whatever crazy nonsense he was up to for whatever reason. As if she's really a lot like him. Which brings up another point anyway, that...

Re: [Your Input Wanted] Thread Timing/Organization

Maybe it's just a 'comment here after posted here' outlook, but having a thread here after the 'final official done comic' is posted on the main site seems a good fit. Not that doing it the way it's been done is the best fit of course. For those watching X commenting on X, there's a likeminded group...

Three nines of the time I pay about zero attention to the upcoming comic until it's posted here, including skipping any comments or chatter about it. Also don't look at new comic or thread about it until finished with the current existing thread. (Although sometimes I go back later to fill in a poin...

Re: [1512] Which one

Blustering about what he would do, while both of them are clearly uninterested in doing anything, and then proceed to do nothing? That's not so informative. We saw the actual behavior though. He wants to talk about what she is and how he can save her, she's supposedly giving him a demonstration of w...

Re: [1512] Which one

No, not all of it was known originally, some was filled in recently. Plus we know most everything is filtered through a few layers of perspective, there's essentially always two layers at least (author, reader) and when it comes to MT however many many layers the characters add. There seems to be ve...

Re: [1512] Which one

Someone with unresolved issues of the past or who remembers the good parts fondly doesn't necessarily mean there has to be much more of substance to it all, regardless if they can't let it go or move on fully. If the last panel is him flatly telling his inner self it is wrong, maybe it is because he...

Re: [1512] Which one

There are a number of those here who believe it's been going a certain way, and it has nothing much to do what we want or not. Mostly I just would like the flow to make some fair amount sense when balanced against the situations and behaviors, not who it is. If that which seems obvious isn't the cas...

Re: [1512] Which one

If we kinda just look at that situation of bathing with Miho from a perspective of conscience, it enters the conscious mind with a concern there might be an issue of regressing to the calm known past, the already answered and over, but still existing in some ways to go back to. Regret, bothered by n...

Re: [1512] Which one

If Kimiko was actually giving Piro an out, that's not so sure, maybe it's only what he appears to think. She seems pretty sure he's going to do what he already seems he's going to, that started in the car, just as soon as he finally makes a determination to stop waiting for other things to happen to...

Apparently a somewhat different thing for that nickname, being overall dangerous and unpredictable, the opposite of nice and quiet, and destructive. From time to time now and then. Rampaging and such. The other thing was in anot...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

You mean here, most of the Horde. I don't know that The Horde is around, much less paying attention anywhere else. So not really. At least, not those who were drawn by huge aberrations in the story that no longer appear present, and them being already dispersed back to their normal existences last ...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

What exactly Miho was thinking in 1121/1122, or if those plans changed or not, is a mystery. Since she didn't, the question of if Miho would have stayed at the ASF forever will have to remain unanswered. Likewise, we don't know yet if a Miho story can only end with her or others dying, since nobody ...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

How did Piro and Miho feel about each other in the past, during the manipulative emotional and non-physical physical-ish aspects of Moh and Pirogoeth in Endgames and the chat personas in chat. That past does seem at least somewhat an open question, given the circumstances and occurrences then and no...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

There is that continuation of 'make a choice' aspect. And sometimes it seems neither piro can (or doesn't want to, perhaps just not yet) decide. But it seems less about who, and more about how quickly and when, with the one he's treating like an actual person and that he's interested in working with...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

It would seem Piro is good at 'romance games' because he likes them, and also knows from experience how to follow the logic of action/reaction in those types of games. Yes certainly reality is far less helpful in determining such things, being messy and everything that pathing in games really isn't....

Hmmm, it doesn't look like she's putting her hands on his arms. Although even if she did, that the reason would be to try and keep his arms away. Rather than to just grab his arms to hold him or get better leverage for the kiss or just because that was the move that was moved into. A hug may look so...

Quite correct, and agreed, we don't know the accounting of it all. Also agreed, the communication has been lacking, and a number of other things such as it taking a long while to get something we still don't have. We are only assuming we'll get something eventually too. Not sure if anyone's seen thi...

Re: The Visual Novel

The initial schedule and scope always seemed too aggressive. Passionate and detailed artist with little that can be well-delegated even if familiar with such things, from a non-game company ('not even indie'). From some people starting from scratch and mostly winging it. What has been done over the ...

They formed from nothing and nowhere and everyone and every place, and during their rioting and rampaging knocked down a building, grabbed Miho, pulled down Piro, and injured many people. They are dangerous and unpredictable. Could it have been worse, probably. As it was, Miho and Piro were dishevel...
