Fred posted the new comic to his Patreon. He'll post it to the main site and elsewhere probably tomorrow.

Me too. Miho is right that only-good-things is not how life works, but Erika is right as well that things are set up nicely for a redemption arc. That's just the kind of "story where you live is a better story" that Piro was talking about [1330].

Dom ought to fall in line with the financing and production [1119], since he wants Erika working for him anyway. And I can see not just Sayuri and Erika's regular industry contacts, but folks like Yaku (story), Kimiko (seiyuu), and Piro (animation) being involved too.

It may be that not only good things happen, but good things do happen, and Miho is overdue.

Now, if someone would go find Piro and tell him to get his art skills ready. 😁

I would like to think Miho will have some input on her new story. Seems like someone else has been calling her shots since day one.

And then, I'll have to spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like 'i love you'…

... Is what came to my mind at first.

But then there's the possibility of conflict... She may have spoken it over with Piro (and Kimi might be ok with it), but Erika still doesn't know the history between the two of them. Also Piro might not want her to die, but doing art FOR her might not be what he's signed up for. OTOH, he doesn't know she's Kotone. Unless Kimi told him already.

(Also stating the obvious but thank you Fred, for the gorgeous page, as usual... 50ft piwwows :)

Totally agree. At same time, she can use a little help from her friends.

See, Miho was stuck in a story loop that frankly sucked but at least there was some fun parts to it. Falling in love with a pirate, adventure, excitement. Bodice ripper sort of fun stuff.

Stability managed to strip all the fun away from Miho's story so that they could continue to recycle that tragedy at the end where she dies alone quite literally of a broken heart.

Piro fixed her heart and now Erika is on board to fix the damage that Stability did!

I agree with this. A good start to this is long overdue.

It would be nice to see if Miho at least has her own say in what her path goes.

Nice turns, this one! =)
Bilbo would strongly agree with where this is going.

Thanks Fred, for this new page!!!

Largo is just AWESOME, as ever! =D

SIGH
I too have a logic robbing weakness to the "puff puff" and a "motorboat." Largo is powerless to the soft cradling caress of Erika's bosom... especially coming too from a sleeper holder. Anybody who has been knocked out knows that you are not yourself and helpless for a period of recovery time.

Moerica is fully in control of the situation. she is now driving this entire part of the story, not just Erika's body.

So what you're basically saying is that the only hope is for Miho to resist the evil machinations of Erika+Moeko?

Either scenario results in Miho being redeemed

Notice that Yaku's ears perked up at the mention of donuts. And there's a slight drool. Someone loves their donuts a lot.

I believe Erika is herself, playing out the personality of Moeko written for the anime. That this personality is a bit different, is not surprising, but she is herself, not Moeko, here.

Also she has Contacts and the collaboration between Sayuri and Yakugashi for the new story could actually be cool.

Just not sure what is Piro going to do but.

Weeeeellllll...

He drew a pic of Kotone and was full of fandom for her character and liked the fact that Kimi was to give her a voice. He probably got the part to do the art for the story of Kotone.

Now I don't know what he's going to do when he hears that Kotone is actually Miho, and the story is to be changed AGAIN… for her. There was an example of that (he got angry, oh the big companies are doing whatever the hell they want and spoil the story) (only calms down when he hears Kimi got the part and the story is changing because of her). But idk if he realised yet that Kotone is actually Miho, and I'm looking forward to reading that exchange :)

And yes I know he suggested that himself, to give her a story where the good ending is so good that nobody likes the bad one; but as I said, he probably doesn't know the relationship between Miho and Kotone yet.

Well, if I remember correctly

Erika will have no trouble whatsoever with bullying Piro into doing exactly what Moeko needs him to do for Miho.

Haha I know there are examples of that, but that was when he was a wimp and didn't have a girlfriend :D

Later on he even had an adult level conversation with Erika in negligé, and didn't turn into a puddle of tears.
Also Largo's face tells me Piro ain't a wimp no moe. If not face of Largo, then Largo himself said Piro is a hero.

So I think the jury is still out on that one.

I think that Piro may resist at first, but Erika will convince him to follow her lead in this situation to settle Moeko's and Miho's stories.
