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

Poor glasses-guy. He's stepped in it now.

Also, that's 4 MT comics this month! Awesome. Hopefully he can keep this up.

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.

I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts.

Well, the geezer seemed friendly enough...... :roll: I guess Megs thought Junpei was on top of Mugi?

Panel 4: We doing this?
Panel 5: We doing this.
Panel 6: Heeeeeeeyyyyyy (my family owns a love hotel)

Can we give Cute Old Gay Geezer a wiki entry?

Aw, that was painful on more levels than I expected to find in this comic.

Awww-some on more than one level, too, though.

Thank you Fred, for the new page — you manage to make me feel sooo sorry for Megumi…

I'm getting a bit of a "Gogo Yubari" vibe here (Kill Bill). Is Megumi about to have a melt down and go postal?

Cute Old Gay Geezer was a masterful way of injecting some much-needed light-heartedness without detracting from the seriousness of the underlying situation :D

Haha, cool :)

Looks like Kimi isn't the only one that likes to not-go-easy on guys on first dates ;)

Busted indeed.

Also lovely old photo-bombing geezer :)

thank you, Fred, for the page :)

I would have said Ashe is a lovely tail, but perhaps that term is outdated.

I'd definitely allow that, but then I'm rather old so.....

I'm certain that Ashe and Megu (Gumi?) have been to this bar enough to be acquainted with the regulars and the cute old gay geezer counts among them

If by going postal you mean ride him like a rented mule then maybe. I doubt that there's going to be any hyper-violence unless it was offered in kind

Geez, Meg, a little overly aggressive there, don'tcha think? No wonder the guys run away from you.

I doubt it. Right now it mostly seems like she wants to be wanted, and is afraid she might not be. Honestly, I don't think she's ever felt like she needed to be the one to kick things off before.

I do hope he turns out to be a good guy, though. I suspect that last thing she actually needs is a one-off.

I find it fetching, personally. It is a refreshing thing for a blunt individual like this bear rather than women playing coy. I do not read, speak, or pick up on coy very well at all. I am more comfy with a little "naked" aggression. :mrgreen:

I also prefer a girl who isn't afraid to say what she wants. But this...this isn't great. Being so repressed and unlucky that she has to nakedly proposition somebody in a bar after getting drunk means that this isn't her natural mode. It's desperation. And it's kind of depressing to see. (And as a fan of art that actually causes an emotional reaction, pretty awesome).

Were I in a stripper joint, I might consider this normal.

However, this doesn't even look remotely like a stripper joint. In this environment, being subtle about your intentions without announcing it to the entire crowd would have been better.

Really? I mean, it's a bar. The central purpose of a bar is to stuff people full of magical liquid that lowers their inhibitions and encourages them to make impulsive decisions for thrills and fun, social conventions be damned.

The Sawataris owns love hotels. Like people who grow up on a farm, they probably view sex as a very plain and ordinary thing that humans are built to do. Coy behavior may seem artificial and pointless and even socially awkward.

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 her that.

People who are repressed don't fish for an invitation to a threesome with their friends new boyfriend when she takes them to a love hotel

To extend on that, take a look at how people reacted to her in Anna Miller's early in the comic's run: she's historically had to beat them off with a stick. Now, she's alone.

I think this is the first time she's ever felt he need to "come-on" to a guy before, and she may be a little freaked out that she even needs to.
