[1574] "crushin' me"

Post by jkhartl » Tue Apr 21, 2020 1:47 am

Fred posted the new comic to his Patreon. They're so cute when they're asleep.

But who is handing Mugi the phone? Doesn't look like th3 N1nj4 (wrist too thin), or like one of the Nurse Joys (too many bandages on the hand).

I imagine it has to be Nurse Joy. Who else is going to call her "Miss Sawatari", have access to the room, and have Mugi just accept the phone from her without any questions? I suppose I could be wrong though.

I like the parallel in the artwork between the two scenes. Foxgirl cuddling above and below. The bartender putting down another beer like Mugi is handed the phone.

I'm guessing that the additional person is Miho. Looks rather cute...

...and awkward at the same time. 😆

It could be Nurse Ririka. The last time we saw her (a few hours ago) she was pretty banged up but magical girls (even retired ones) heal quickly. Mugi doesn't seem to be bothered by whoever it is. Maybe it's Yuki volunteering as a Candy Striper.

Considering the conversation in the last comic Mugi's last line might make Megumi feel worse. That line reminds me of the "I don't have a cat" meme.

Mugi: <Wait a minute, who who da hell else is 'ere in bed wit me??> <I don't even have a human>

Miho must have found an artery on Mugi's exposed flank, and is feigning sleep as she drains her life energy.

"She's got so big an' is just crushin' me... Wait a minute, who da hell else is 'ere in bed wit me???"

Ahahah :D Thanks for that.

I notice Megumi is talking more like a Sawarti now that she's had a few. I'm looking forward to when her budding ears come fully erect.

Looks to me like a ninj4 boot bottom centre of the last panel. Seems a little out of character, and I can't figure out placement, but we'll see.

Awwwwww, that’s just cute.
But I can imagine Mugi’s initial vantage point…

Imagine the horror… 8S

…not to mention how Mugi’s response must come across to Gumi… 8O

I like how they call each other Mugi and Gumi! Always snapping at each other, yet using affectionate abbreviations! =)
…and I wonder if Ashe is getting along °whom° Gumi is calling…

Thanks for this page, Fred!!!

Cute, I sorta was thinking, how do they short-call each other when they're not at each others' throats like at the beginning :) 'Gumi' is cute AF.

Very Nice Page, Fred Thank you!

I can't help but wonder, what big cliffhanger are we coming close to?

Or to phrase it differently

If Piro ended up in a bed
and Miho ended up in a bed
Then we'd have Piro in a bed and Miho in a bed
but it's not the same

Change that can only be measured by geologic periods is close enough.

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 Great Fox Cuddle of 2020.

Nah, that's the walking boot that Mugi is wearing because she hurt her ankle. You can see it better here: [1440].

I don't think so. Like you said, the wrist is way too small. But also, there isn't any trace of ninj4-sp33k in what is said when they hand the phone to Mugi. I still think it's Nurse Joy. Miho did cause a lot of damage to the hospital, and the Nurse Joys were there. That's enough to explain the bandage to me.

Going back to TWB's remark, if Miho needed to feed on Mugi's life force I'm pretty sure that Mugi would have felt honored

It's gonna be awkward for Mugi, since Miho is now her forcibly-adopted sister. No more "Miho-sama"!

Okay, that was cute. So Miho finally got to rest, and even if she can’t be with Piro, she’s not alone. Good job, Yaku.

Seems like this might be the framework for wrapping up the chapter. Another comic with Mugi and Miho, possibly Megumi checking in on Kimiko/Piro (not really necessary, but could happen just to remind us that they exist), and everyone is in place to jump forward to the next morning.

Unless I’m missing someone. Yuki and Yutaka, maybe, but it might be jarring to go back to them right now. Junpei could patch things up with his parents with some exposition from Grandma- also jarring, but who knows where Fred will take us? I am eagerly waiting to find out.
