Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

The north star was useful because it was a fixed reference point for navigation. The important point is that it gave information about the external world, as opposed to "Whatever direction I am facing must be north, because my nose and my gut never steer me wrong." And in the past, Teddy was right ...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Teddy is our north star, always unchanging. Even Fred acknowledges this. I submit that the north star is useful because it actually, you know, shows which direction is north.

why does Teddy think that Miho is the fount of all evil?
It's been Teddy's schtick, err firmly held opinion for as long as I've been on the forum. He's the one constant here. Don't ever change, Teddy. :ph34r:

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

If Megumi has fully manfested and her future mindset reflects her emotions during the manifestation, I suspect you'll be proven wrong on this one, Teddy. Depending on the source, the power range of a 9T* can be pretty terrifying, and she's got no experience in controlling them. They may need Miho's...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Just wrote a long post about what I suspect might be happening here. Not going to post it here yet, I want to wait until the comic is up publicly. Also I think reviewing it after I get some sleep might be a good thing. It all seems quite logical at 2am, but we know how that can turn out.

Clearly Megumi wasn't smacking him around and dissing him enough. Or maybe she's too tall for him, Hayase is pretty short.

Yell "WHAT PHONE?" and motorboat Megumi.
Get her to laugh in this mood and you might win her heart. Or they might find Teddy-bits in five prefectures, but that's the chance you take.

Re: [1581] can't make it any worse

Having been in almost this exact situation, the winning sequence of moves to solve the puzzle is:

-Look at phone
-Say 'Yes, it is' with a worried frown.
-Pick up phone
-Turn phone off
-Look back down at beautiful girl
-Smile
-Say "Now where were we?"

Noo...I don't think Junko has a really good outlook about relationships, or guys in general. Ask Erika.

Re: [1580] with love

If Megumi does manifest as a nine-tail and wanted to kill Ping, Ping would be melted into slag in the first few seconds of a fight. This is why I am hoping that if she is indeed a nine-tail, an incident like this does not become the stimulus to manifest. Such a negatively charged atmosphere would n...

Re: [1580] with love

The really hysterical - and interesting - thing about this is that Ping hasn't a duplicitous bone in her body. Which means that grandma knew she was going to do this. And she let her. Of course, this is the kind of shared experience that can take a couple of strangers and create a lasting bond betwe...

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 pe...

I have been following this comic since a long time ago and I intend to continue to do so, but I have to warn that this post is going to be very critical of the story right now.
