I think I enjoy the Chokage chibis at the bottom of the page as much as I do the actual story. Is "pervert loser artist shmuck" an accurate self-description? :lol: ;)

Shades of DeathLok! I wonder if they have a way to disconnect her aural dampening implants as a form of punishment should she step out of line? That would suck.

I'm afraid that is the undertone of the conversation that's not really happening....

Am I the only one who finds Chokky cute and huggable in the third panel from the bottom?

Am I the only one who is at least as interested in the continuing story of Chokky as the next chapter in MegaTokyo? And maybe more so?

I'm really enjoying the fresh subject matter and the characters here. Very different from the main story line. It's great and I want more.

The entire meta that Fred has conceived is incredibly interesting. I think the issues with the main story line has been stagnant characters. Piro finally started to develop at the point where he broke Largo's face and put him in the hospital. He's had further growth and development demonstrated by his bedding of Kimiko. Miho has changed and developed as a result of Piro resuscitating her and getting her to the hospital for surgery.

It's funny, Piro and to a lesser degree Kimiko are both the primary agents of change outside of the new characters and background being revealed.

Getting a real slimeball manipulator vibe from Mr Monitor Voice. Chokky may be abrasive, but this is a foul turn of events.
Implants improve Chokky's aural skills... heh heh heh!

It suddenly struck me today that this is basically the decision the elves had to make when Sauron put on the One.

"Of course, you can just take off your rings. But it will make your thoughts slower, your muscles weaker, your hand clumsier, your voice duller. The colours will appear less vibrant to you, the sounds more muffled. And everything you love will be washed away by the unrelenting tide of time, lost to you for the rest of your unending years.

Are you willing to subject yourself to that?"

Chokky is the exact opposite though. She has dampening and filtering tech to keep her from being overwhelmed

I think the effect is the same. Here is a key part of how you run your life. Lose it or accept the surveillance.

I've met a couple people that can when i worked retail.... person used IE for the internet and had a yahoo email... so for all i know they probably were avoiding google to some extent.... but yes... that would be hard.. doable, but hard.
