"I... got some bad pain in my chest..."
That sounds familiar...

I have the funny feeling that the last panel is sort of a family picture.....Ninja Grams doesn't strike me as the "primly keep your knees together" sort so I'm wondering if maybe Miho gave her a painful injury....I'd be certain if it was Ninja Gramps...

What's wrong with Miho? Over run her scientific pace maker to keep up with her magical strength? Her body rejecting it? Maybe she just needs time for her heart to catch up after such a long day of magical level excersize. Perhaps she can't compete in the magical girl olympics this year. I guess we'll find out.

But anyhow, Yaku has lost her protector. NinjaGranny's motives are still unclear but Mugi's little girl looks to the casual observer to be friendless amongst a crowd of powerful enemies.

And they're in the woods. A first for MegaTokyo. MT is sort of about Urban places. But the medow is the natual habitat of the fox. I wonder if young Yaku will attract any natural allies here in the forest? Or demonstrate some nifty powers of her own.

I believe her medical device is an dual function ICD which can be pretty rough given that her heart may be fighting the defibrillation in an effort to correct back to her original story.

The moment Yaku said "you saved me" triggered it. Miho just became someone else's heroine. The universe's self-correction engine is firing on all cylinders.
SD seems to no longer need the tinfoil hat that it had made from merciless hammering on Occam's Razor. This is a strange state of affairs. I do hope that it finds the need for it again someday.

Well there wasn't any huffing from exhaustion / onset of coronary failure / heart attack...
So it may be that.

Or Piro and Kimiko actually did get so united now, that the act has cut the last ties binding Miho to the world.
Maybe the traces of what was left of her in Piro's heart, did keep her alive?
Now that Kimiko's taken him completely over, what happened to Miho could have been the subliminal 'I'd rather die than see that happening', kinda self-fulfilling prophecies...

But she's not dead yet, isn't she...?

The spirit of her story, could actually take over the people standing by... It's not like she's not done it before (in Endgames) - the little fox-girl will be the high priestess and the ninjas will be the servants of the New Miho Shrine, tending to her suspension tank, keeping her body alive until someone she could fall in love with, wakes her up again....

Oops channeled some DomeXgirl here sorry

Thank you Fred, for the page :) way to do cliffhangers...

Haha, even the ninjas' cats have facemasks... hillarious :)

Well she was in a regular hospital, so she would most likely have gotten a regular pacemaker... I don't think it would really be able to allow her to keep up with these powerful battles... not really... Ether that or she really hasn't healed up yet and the pain is finally being felt (ran out of adrenaline?), and she does have an not so small child clinging to her which might hurt too. Still, an ominous sign.

Uh oh. Looks like The Story does not like what Miho was trying to do with it.

Someone get Yaku a notebook. Stat.

Or maybe Miho's story has now inspired fanfiction!

Oooh. Thanks Fred, for the new page!!!

I really don’t know what to make of it — most of the above options seem to make a lot of sense.
Oh and Hetz? Sorry to disappoint you, but cidjen did ninja you concerning the cat…

Poor Yaku — she really is thrown into the deep…

This is where Yaku reveals that she actually has 7 more tails that she's kept magically hidden.

Even a twintail kitsune can cast foxfire.and you know what happens when you catch a ninja on fire... same thing that happens to everything else.

So, which of her cousins did she murder, flay and steal the other 7 tails from?

THUMP THUMP! Goes the heart failure, foul Miho!
Maybe Nabiki has the cure... all the cure she will ever need!

In the Twitch stream Fred made an Altered Carbon reference. Obaa-sama Shinobi leans close to Miho who whispers, "That's....fucking....enough"

Miho would of course survive :D

See Miho... this is why you should have informed someone else before running off to be the hero.

Not that I didn't think you lacked the ability to take on some ninjas, but you are recovering from heart surgery, so mentioning something to Mugi's family (who where right there at the Foxhole, would have taken maybe 5 minutes), would have been wise. Then you could have rescued Yaku.

I sense a potential intervention here; from who? I guess we'll find out, after a probable scene change, or two...... :roll:
