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.
Really. Life experiences back me up on this.

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
*I* didn't take her seriously there. She knows both of them well enough to know there was zero chance of them actually agreeing. And I think it's likely that growing up working in a love hotel would tweak your sense of humor in strange ways.

Megu isn't particularly repressed, just unlucky
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.
Um, my understanding is that that's an expected side effect of working at an Anna Miller's. (My information may be outdated. I was in Japan a while ago.)

I like this guy; hope he sticks around, I'd like to see more of him. It'd be funny if he's Yutaka's (single) young uncle or older cousin or something.

(Skimming the past few threads I've missed over the past month and a half): wow, I (still) suck at seeing stuff in the background. Everyone else saw him back in 1572 or whatever and this is the first strip I noticed him. :roll:

I didn’t take Megumi seriously when she teased Piro about a threesome, either. It was pretty clear she was just messing with him because he looked so out of his element.

(Holy crap, that was well over two years ago...)

I also didn’t read her as actually propositioning this bar guy. She was upset and angry and noticed some poor schlub staring at her/Ashe, so she lashed out. She’s also drunk out of her mind, so if he’s a decent guy at all, they’re not hooking up tonight.

He seems like the polar opposite of her type. Flustered, bespectacled office worker rather than a strong, silent ninja. But he was staring because he noticed she seemed sad, so presumably that means he’s kind. Maybe she’ll scare him off, maybe they’ll go their separate ways rather than form a real connection, maybe they’ll date but be incompatible. Or hell, maybe he wants the old gay geezer. It seems too cliche for him to be her perfect partner. But...well, it’d be cute.

Woah, I'm impressed how much you guys remember after such a long time.

Hahaha he might be her assigned TPCD security detail/agent, since TPCD are acutely aware of what she really is, a 9 tail...

Megumi should be first on EVERYONE's list.

While fair, I doubt's she's first on Teddy's list. Of course, that's a different kind of list.

Well, I'm pretty sure you've got a list labeled 'girls never, ever to be trusted'. And while a nine-tail foxgirl is pretty dangerous, I don't think she'd be at the top of that list...

That list started and ended with Miho... then Moeko took possession of Erika. Now Moerika has to be approached with caution and suspicion in the story.
