supposing that Junpei is 18~ and Yaku is 15~ and we take Ninja Grrls words in https://megatokyo.com/strip/1529 than that's not out of line....

Has anyone shipped Yaku and Junpei yet? Aside from the age difference/ pre-existing romantic interest in Yaku's parental unit.
Not that I'm aware of, and definitely for the reasons you just stated. Yaku needs someone else, I'm afraid.

It totally writes itself as a Ken Akamatsu style romcom manga: Yaku is your typical teenager complete with two tails worth of snark. Yaku's world is turned upside down when a clan of ninjas with a contract on her grandma kidnap her and she's rescued by the clan's own Mortal Kombat master, Junpei. Suddenly, Yaku's heart is set a flutter for her hero, but with on problem: Junpei's already got his eyes on Yaku's mom! Add in a cousin with a love hotel that wants to provide her services, and you've got twin tails of trouble! What's a fox girl to do?!

Loved watching this last night, though I wasn't logged in. Made great background video/audio while mostly focused on playing some mobile games.

In that last set of 3 panels, on the left side I could imagine Junpei saying "Like L33t Master Largo, Junpei choose path of Love." Which would certainly explain Grandma's expression in the next panel! :)

And Fred is on the east coast? Wife and I thought he was in the mid west. (He mentioned "past midnight" when it was a little past 9pm on the west coast).

Fred lives near Ann Arbor Michigan, which is eastern time zone.

Also, welcome to the forums. :)

Fred is streaming. Interesting drawing in his sketch book... Miho from her first life?

OK, so Fred's being a tease, and says he isn't going to tell us Miho's real name (since she's actually Irish, Miho isn't it).

Possibly relevant, based on the art from strips 1403 - 1405, her hair is a lot lighter in color (blonde? light tone redhead?). And in the video chat Fred said "mihos hair doesnt have the same sheen to it in ireland that she has currently"

Also a possible hint is "passcode", but I also realized later that Passcode was the name of the band whose music he started at the same time. But he also wrote down "YPT Finish" on a scrap of paper on camera briefly before putting it away (time stamp 27:30 on the video) when I pondered about where we had seen her use a passcode before. So maybe a red herring, maybe him being cagey.

I don't see any chapter titles that match YPT so I'm currently flipping through pages real fast (when I don;t get distracted by a scene and re-read) to see if I can find any 'screen shots' of her logging in.

Also vague thoughts: "miho" means different things depending upon the Kanji spelling, but generally means beauty. Or "Ear of Grain". One of them was "future step". Could her Irish name be one that means Beauty?

I don't know if it's relevant to anything, but now I really want to know. Just my rambling thoughts.

On a different topic, Fred needs to take better care of himself. No feeding only wife and kid dinner! people do poorly without fuel for the brain and body. But things have been a bit rough for him with his FIL needing a hospital trip yesterday, though he's better and back home today.

Passcode isn't very good, IMO, FWIW. Perhaps Fred is channelling the band's aggressive tone through Miho? :roll:

The safe bet is nearly always the former. Most of his little notes on the drawings are reminders for himself for things he needs to do during cleanup. Last comic, a similar note was a reminder to make Junpei's dad a little bigger at photoshop time.

He does indeed, and we all worry about him. At least it's grumbly, depressed, but productive Fred right now, rather than grumbly, depressed Fred struggling to draw. It's not good, but it's better than the really bad that has been all too common lately :(

Ok, sorry could not watch yet... Will try to catch up this evening (EU time) but regards to Miho's name, where does Kotone come from ? So much it bugged me so I tried making up a name with 'Cotton' in it...

But it just occurred to me that an anagram of Kotone is... E, Not OK... ?

Hasn't Miho in colored pages always been depicted with purple hair?

I always assumed that meant she was black Irish.

It looks like Miho's landing coordinates may have been a bit off.

@GouryG Yep, Yaku gets to be the rescuer now. :)

@Sackett except for during her flashback to her original life. She may dye her hair now.

Looks like flashbacks from near-death situation - you know the one, when your life rewinds before your eyes :) the one thing from the genre that I did not see Fred doing in MT yet ;)

EDIT: looks like by SFS, we're flashing back to the night before Miho got married...

Perhaps we'll see the incident which sparked an eternal infernal fire within her heart which refuses to die... permanently.

Edit: Saw the October 16 video with HUUUUGE spoiler at the end.... :shock:

There were 3 streams since 1540 has been posted, all looks like devoted to a scene from Bomber Girls.

Comic 1541 is in progress.

In one of the streams, Fred can be seen using a ... Ruler!

And still not spilled who the little girl is.

Makes sense. Magical energy density is most commonly measured in centisparklogens per millimeter, so he'd need the length of the wand to be as consistent as possible from panel to panel.

When he breaks out the protractor, then we'll know we're in for a particularly wild ride. (Now I want to see Yuki leafing through a small textbook titled "Magical Constructions Using Only Straightedge, Compass, and Pure Love".)
