OK, so was Ririka's 'Pure' Moeko always an act, or is this the result of 15+ years of being trapped in her own head?
I would think that she might have taken at least some if not all traits of *real* Erika personality...
Look, it's being said that Kimiko is a master at hiding her emotions. That she was hiding them so deep that she wasn't even considering them real... What if this is what actresses in MT world are like....? If Erika was the master of this, before Kimi even started?
In Erika's case it would mean, maybe the real Erika wasn't this pure as everyone thought. (Just as Miho wasn't always the sick girl). But she was made to play Moe-bo so she actually developed a completely new personality to go with that... she couldn't do that without becoming Moeko even partially. Remember that Ryoya remark about forcing to live out of character until she snapped? That might have been it.
So, like, Erika could only play Moebo as long as she was the nice person, Moeko.
The naughty one got pushed away, completely out. The transformation was so complete that no one knew where it went.
Hitoshi saw that and left, cause he wasn't a fan of this 'meek Erika'.
That left Erika's character building in disarray until Largo came around to help.
(Crazy but maybe Hitoshi was Largo's first attempt at this game?)
But this nice Erika was actually the real Moeko all this time, and now this comic shows that the 'naughty' Erika was sent to sleep.... In Moeko.
This also sort of works well with my theory that Moeko and Miho are related, but not the same person.
Back when Miho fainted... Maybe that was the sign of Kimiko doing to her, what Erika did to Moeko?
Maybe Moeko and Miho are the previous generation of what Erika and Kimiko are supposed to be? We're seeing a generation change, is all.
Crazy good page Fred thanks!
