Relax, we understand j00!
I said Mugi(Komugiko) because I meant Mugi. Do you not think Miho could not have known Mugi since she was a kid like that?

But there has never been any indication that Mugi ever did that? She's always been very forward about her kitsuneness and quite comfortable with it as well...cidjen wrote: ↑Sat Oct 20, 2018 2:03 pmI said Mugi(Komugiko) because I meant Mugi.

Foxgirls have one advantage though: They exist in Megatokyo.Foxgirls are overrated, anyway. Catgirls are cuter....
We only know Mugi from where she was an adult already. I have a feeling, Miho's relationship with her goes well beyond what we're shown in the comic (actually, ask Chemiclord... I haven't read the books either sorry ) then what if there is something beyond the prequel novels?

Hmmm... she does look like MIho. Last we saw of 19th century Miho, she was to be married off quickly. Why? Who else does the little girl look like? Why did the family need to forbid her to talk about her adventure AND hide her away in a distant estate? Who else has Fred drawn with those eyes? Maybe she has her fathers eyes. https://megatokyo.com/strip/1404 I don't believe this, just tossing it out there for fun.
I dunno. If the little girl had said "punish you most painfully", then that' would have an obvious reference to Moeko's catchphrase   . But she all she said was "punish you", which I'm not sure is enough.
 and  were what sprang to mind for me.
Hmm. Last I remember Miho saying something about someone not being alive enough for her to "use" was in regard to Ping. The way she talks about "taking" from others and "using" them no doubt inspired a lot of the fear and loathing Miho draws from some quarters; and those like me who at the time considered it too vague to commit to any hypotheses certainly couldn't claim she was just taking the piss (compared to the times she says something similar to Largo or Yuki), since she's saying it to herself.
Pfft. "Or" is for mundanes.
Regardless of my opinion on those two particular possibilities, you raise an excellent point: English "either" doesn't necessarily mean "one out of two possbilities". Although it often does structurally ("either this or that"), it's by no means limited to that: "none of the first ten things we tried worked, and this didn't either."
