Miho's got her war face on......and I suspect that Yaku is going to have a really good cry once this is over....
I do believe Miho has her fight mode back. Beware her wrath
That said, seeing as she was still recovering from major surgery, I do hope that she does not aggravate her healing. Even if she seems to have recovered enough to battle the Ninjas.
I think poor Yaku has probably lost a few lives there. Enough kidnapping and strife for a lifetime. She'll probably need some good amount of therapy for all this.

Or grow a few more tails, and lay waste to the ninja compound, despite Mugi's and Junpei's relationship..... :evil:

Hopefully, Miho isn't amped up on adrenaline, and she can continue her butt-whoopin......

In MT canon tails can only be added by murdering another kitsune and performing an undisclosed act that will fuse the deceased kistunes spine and tail into the killers own spine and tail(s).....

Well, I don't know if Grandma Ninja's still alive after all of that, but she was definitely on the wrong end of that deal.

If you kill a cat-person, will you inherit its tail(s)? :) Or maybe, rather, fangs.

Haha.

The sharp objects the ninjas carry, are an overprojection of their cat-people fangs :) They can't throw them, because they are part of their ... paws.

IT ALL MAKES SENSE :)

All Miho has to do to neutralize them, is grab them by the scruff of the neck :) like mama kittens.

It's possible ... that instead of having her nose rubbed in the limitations of her own story ... she is fully focused on someone else's issues for the first time in a long time -- possibly a very very long time. That is, she's not consciously thinking about her own story at all.
I agree. In my opinion, this is a very strong possibility.

Considering how she has already today demolished a section of a hospital, fought Junpei to a standstill, knocked out a party of Ninjas and done who knows what to Junpei's grandmama, I think that her recovery must be progressing nicely.

Picking up on that trail…

I’ve figured out what those ninjas have not yet had today:

…and I do not think they should be allowed to have any.

:P

Ah, so the first panel is actually Miho saying "BOOM!" on her way out
After the ignoring her and attempts at trivializing her, Miho doesn't seem much in the mood to be verbalizing sound effects?

Well anyway, that's not exactly a speech bubble, instead it appears an explosion of sorts goes along with the noise. So a sonic boom sort of thing as an angered Miho smashes at an angle out of a rock and wood roof/wall at high speed holding a bound Yaku seems to match.

It's kinda what we didn't get in 1001 with a helpful Miho taking Kimiko on a more upward leap out of a glass roof.

Obvious RL check would be Tokyo Disneyland, but it doesn't look right and Fred is usually meticulous about architecture so I suspect cidjen has it.

I've now had a look at some Naruto images, and I'm pretty sure that's wrong too. The closest I've found is

but AFAIK that's just a stand-alone image, no game link.

She should just ask Meimi. I sure she has several sets.

...the ninjas made Yaku cry. According to my eldest bratling, this means that they should hope that Miho finishes them here and now, before Mugi gets well, because angry mama powers are scary.

I'm pretty sure that Miho is channelling all the scary mama powers for the love of the children that she could never have....

Hmm, a naive young girl, trying to help someone she found strange and maybe a bit scary, only to find herself sucked into something horribly violent and completely out of her control... I'm thinking Miho might be seeing something of her (long lost original) self in Yakugashi. (In addition to plenty of other regrets and frustrations that would have accumulated over those hundred and fifty years; I agree children or lack thereof would likely be very high on such a list...)

That one though would be triggering her scary daddy powers. Her scary mamma powers would still be... um..

You know, I am starting to think now is really not a good time to be reminding Miho of all the reasons she has to be even more pissed off at the moment. So I am going to shut up now. :shock:

It sounds like Miho has gone into Ellen Ripley mode. She has at least for the moment turned into the don't fuck with me heroine.
