Re: [TTDP 005] A Troubled Earth-Bunny Girl

Masamichi is sneakier than I gave him credit for. Probably from watching Meimi outsmart everyone while she was still a Magical Girl. To unpack that: Pretty obvious to me that he's showing her that her actions impact other people other than herself, and that those actions may end up hurting those peo...

Re: [1577] cheating

I wonder if the runaway fiancé will be a future plot thing. We will note this question and remind you of it when she becomes important to the subplot involving Yaku and her new girlfriend, who is the cousin of the long-lost fiance and desperately needs to locate her because she needs her to donate ...

Re: [1576] couldn't help it

Yes. It wasn't a particular concern about this guy, more a general observation. Any character might just fade out. That's up to the storyteller. Nonetheless each minor character will normally have some clear reason for emerging from the crowd, and there will be comic space needed to clarify that. I...

Re: [TTDP 0003] Sentencing Guidelines

Not sure if she's a catgirl or not...her ears mostly point to the rear, but we've seen them (TTDP #1, P 5) pointing forward. The shape is frustratingly familiar. Some kind of marsupial? Looks to me like a Fennec fox, minus the bushy tail. Fennec fox I thought about that, but those don't point downw...

Re: [TTDP 0004] The Release of Just Walking

Chokage looks mildly surprised. The bunny girl looks shocked. Not sure if that's just her, or if that's the 'easily scared bunny girl' trope at work.

I don't think we can yet say this involves racism - although you can make a good case based on those guidelines. You're right, it's not actual racism. What I'm saying here is that the behaviors exhibited so far is similar to what we find in racism. Fred is basically giving us an essay on the pitfal...

And the message is that cute foxgirls are much harder to manage than Zilla monsters which you can just shoot.
Or just hire a nice MG to feed it pork rinds and lead it back to the cage.

Re: [1575] busted

Megu isn't particularly repressed, just unlucky Personally, I would class panels 4-6 as being almost a textbook example of someone using a mechanism to overcome repression. Take a look at Ashe's face in P6 - that's the first time I can recall her looking surprised. She recovers quickly, I'll give h...

Re: [1575] busted

Panel 2 is a masterclass in showing emotional pain. I'm actually glad we can't see Megumi's face here. Before anyone asks, no, you can't read what Komugiko is saying on the phone in the high-res version either. Appears to be intentionally fuzzed out. So Megumi is a huntress in her own right He was b...

Fred posted the new Tokyo Threat Documentation Project comic to his Webtoons page. Again, this is Fred testing art styles by writing side stories.

Re: [1574] "crushin' me"

Considering Mugi's reaction, I think it is Junpei. Not sure about the wrists, but beating down an entire ninja clan would leave marks you would want to bandage. Also, in the last panel Mugi seems to have fresh (not squished by grrls) origami on her. Of course those might just be survivors of the Gre...

Being a foxgirl: Okay. Being a murderess: Not okay.

This has a taste of "Men in Black".
I get the impression that it's "Murderess OK, Foxgirl Not OK"
More "Murder we can cover up or explain away, Foxgirl not so much", I think.
