[1586] Chapter 13 - Redemption

Post by paarfi » Sun Oct 11, 2020 6:07 am

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

Yay start of chapter 13!

Just so y'all know, with Sarah still out of a job, Fred has taken a new (hopefully less covid-risky) bus-driving job to try to keep them afloat. He's trying to do comic work in the mornings before work and at night and weekends, but we'll see how it goes.

Whiskers of the fox?

Also, she doesn't seem to have noticed her new ears and tail quite yet. Hopefully that room has good soundproofing.

Wait until she tries to use the washroom, only to discover an, (or rather 9) obstacles between her and the back of the toilet.

Mmmh. I thought she knew what she is, but just hid it?

'Ow my head!' is right.... just wait until you discover its more than a mere hangover Megumi..... these next few strips are going to be quite interesting.

I had a thought about Megumi’s situation. What if when she was younger, about Yakugashi age, she decided not to be a nine tail anymore? She might have the power to not only hide her ears and tails but also make everyone around her, and herself, forget she is a nine tail. However there were certain side effects to the magic that made her unlucky in love.

Kinda disagree. It's also possible that she's done something to redeem herself, assuming the tails and ears are real. What would a kitsune need to do if neither they nor anyone else has seen these features? If the title means anything, people are about to be redeemed in some fashion.

I don't think that it's a mere coincidence that this happens the day following Miho's story change. I think that there's a connection

Agreed. Going to be interesting figuring out what precipitated the change - she didn't seem angry, unlike when we could see them before now - and if they were just hidden before, or waiting to manifest.

Everyone is talking about whether Megumi will notice her ears and tails, me I'm just thinking "sexy foxgirl is sexy." ;)

"At least there's no way..."

A spot of ironic foreshadowing, methinks.

I am increasing my bet that "Megumi didn't know she was a foxgirl, let alone nine-tailed" from 15 Bayesian units, to a million.

I’m with darrin too. Quite a big shock waiting to jump her from behind and above… =(

Wow drawing, this page, Fred! You sure don’t take the easy way with a 9T for current main character!

And yes, you’ve managed to make me feel sorry for her — yet again.

Thanks for the update — on with Chp.13 we go! 8D

I'm not speaking out of school here to say, Megumi is no glass cannon.

Good. She's too much fun to break (although I suspect Fred will be bending her pretty severely this chapter) and I want to see her find somebody worthy of her bravery.

Fred would have to come up with a new character, because as best as I can tell, Junpei is the only one that got her hormones up.(Paisen was just a one night stand, almost)

But wasn't she running around with Ashe? I'm confused now 😅

"At least there's no way today can be worse than yesterday" What? Really Megumi, you are genre savvy enough to know that that is probably the worst thing you could ever say. Are you daring the world to try and flatten you?

So this is literally a redemption arc - but who is going to be redeemed? There's a lot of characters looking for redemption.

Or she may just look in the mirror, pat down her ears, fold up her tails and go out for a cuppa.

I certainly won't claim to not be confused by the details of the relationships. To the best of my abilities to seek aid from search ninja, those details have yet to be revealed, and I'm pretty sure that's deliberate on Fred's part.

When Megumi took Piro and Kimiko to The Fox Hole, there was much forum debate on the relation between (Megumi's?) Grandma the Fox Hole owner / manager and (Yakugashi's) GreatGrandma the Shrine / Clan head.

Unfortunately there were just too many possibilities not ruled out in the comic for that debate to get anywhere. (That's not snark; I freely admit to having contributed more noise than signal myself on that subject.) It's a pretty safe bet (from the conversation in 1490/1491) that "GreatGrandma" is the mother of Mugi's mother. On the other side we don't get much explicit description at all though; Megumi calls the Fox Hole manager "Grandma", and Ashe her "cousin"; but there are lots of relations it would be culturally appropriate for Megumi to call "grandma" (great-aunt?) and vastly more that it would be appropriate to call "cousin" (first, second etc.). (In translation anyway.)

My initial guess was that Shrine GreatGrandma and Fox Hole Grandma are not related by blood, just marriage. That would have allowed for Megumi to be from the "human" side of the family, with Ashe and Mugi being on the "foxy" side. The current reveal would change that to being the "cover story" Megumi believed, with her actually being more closely related to those two than she realized. But no, most of that is still just guesswork, and I'm not betting too heavily on any of those specific details.
