Fred has posted the new comic to his Patreon. He'll post it to the main site and elsewhere probably tomorrow.

IT'S SO FLUFFY!!!

I think this confirms that Megumi as foxgirl is a surprise to everybody, including Megumi herself. I'll be curious to see where this goes. Certainly a life-changer for Megumi. But also, nine-tails being so powerful, what does this do for relations in the Sawatari clan, and might this put Megumi in the sights of Stability.

Also, I think we're seeing what Erika means by Kimi-zilla [887]. Kimiko has no brakes once she gets going [610].

And yet another instance of "you can interpret it different ways" with Piro's reaction. Is he surprised at seeing Megumi the foxgirl? Or is he just surprised to see a grumpy morning Megumi? It's really remarkable that Fred has managed to keep this kind of ambiguity going for over 20 years.

Yay! Comic! (Sorry, Paarfi -- I stole your line again.)

I especially like Ashe's reaction. She may have known Megumi had the potential to be a kitsune, but *nine* tails?

OH MY GOD! Leave it to Kimiko to cut straight to the chase and dive into that pile of tails! She looks to be getting mighty familiar with those derrière accouterments. Poor Megumi. She suddenly realizes what is happening and is being groped by her best friend all at the same time! Just a quick addendum here: Megumi not knowing at all about her, ummm, condition, continues to fit Invisigoth's theory. I suspect that the other shoe might drop soon and Great Granny will have some explaining to do.

Oh yeah this is definitely a game changer. How much do you want to bet that Great Granny knew all along and cast some sort of spell to hide her ears and tails but Megumi somehow unknowingly broke it. That OH SHIT!! Look on Ashe's face is priceless. Once TCPD finds out things may get a bit crazy.

The way to deal with a new nine tail fox appearing is quite simple. Send her a nice gift basket, have the mayor and other authorities sign a pretty card. Ask if there's anything at all that she would like and that they can do to make her stay in the city more enjoyable.

Also, build and shrine and make LOTS of offerings and encourage everyone in the city to visit regularly.

Prepare evacuation routes....

Woot! Well, that confirms my theory that Megumi 'levelled up' and did not know that she was showing a little extra tail.

Kimi-zilla confirmed. Her smile in P5 reminds me disturbingly of Asako's. And even with a best friend, diving into and hugging body parts with that enthusiasm is a little disturbing.

Megumi's look is shock until she spots Ashe. The looks those two are trading are serious 'Oh shit' looks. They know what's going on, and they're not happy. Poor Megumi is about to be surrounded by family members, all anxious to offer advice. Or give orders. Good luck with that.

The really interesting question is, what is the voice in Ashe's head going to make of this? And if he gets it right, how is the TPCD going to react to actually having to deal with a fresh nine-tail?

There's also this little tangent, some are going to ask who did she kill to get those tails?

Those voices are in Chokky's head. Ashe is just her roommate.

Last time I read that, Kurama was not female ;)

/s tho,

I think, Kimi doesn't realise what the high number of tails means, Piro, being a manga/anime fan sort of does, and Ashe looks like she's going to be the one needing clothes...

Or Kimi actually does know but has no fear because she's (or she subconsciously knows that she is) more powerful than Gumi?

On a side note, did Largo meet Megumi, like, ever, in similar capacity as to sense her powers as he did with Kimi? I don't think so... I suppose when they all meet somewhere on the way to hospital his L33t senses will go batshit crazy....

Also with the foreshadowing of Yuki and Zomzom and mentioning Kimi-zilla going on, is Kimi actually... A Zilla girl that got sealed? A multi-tail overpowered relative of Zom-zom?

I'm pretty sure that Kimiko is not a seal 'zilla as she's not got that Dragon Maid tail. I don't think that Largo has met Megumi yet though I am too lazy to look it up right now but I seriously doubt that he could sense anything that the other characters didn't see.

Megu would currently be the most powerful entity in the MegaTokyo universe by at least an order of magnitude at this time. I suspect that will not be changing

So… Kimiko has dicarded her towel and is now performing the Dance of the Nine Tails to preserve her modesty?

Remember in the Applegeeks crossover (it was around the time of the Train Crash) something stopped the Zilla from stepping on the Anna Miller's? Coincidence? I think not ;) With both Kimi and Gumi there, there could not be :)

Also Kimi could be having her multidimensional tails hidden same style as the Kitsune do it: the more tails one has, the more magical they are. She might just be, the Ten Tails...? After all those were all different animals...

I do think we can confirm that Kimiko knows something about the Sawatari clan...

.....and Piro would have never thought that such things would actually exist.

I feel confident is saying that Kimiko is not in any way magical aside from the connection she has to Miho. Kimiko is actually a very sad case in that the only personality she has is the character that she's being. In this case she's being Miho and has a wild night with Piro.

Kimiko is rather like a meat puppet version of Ping which doesn't actually bear thinking about too hard.

As for the 'zilla not stepping on Anna Miller's...well you said it. Megumi was in there

Well, Kimi doesn't seem to be channeling Miho right now...too much enthusiasm...so maybe Kimi-zilla is her actual personality? Which makes her a grown up version of Asako. Yikes.

And agreed, the Zilla incident is confirmation that Megu's luck does help prevent physical harm to her, at least. That will come in handy.

Do not lewd the middle-schoolers? Although in the non-lewd sense which I am sure you meant, this is questionable - Asako grown up would have gone through an Uzaki-chan phase and now be that friend who is only bearable on beer nights or in very small doses.

So uhhhh I don't know if I just have a really short attention span, or the fact that this story has been going on for a very long time now, but... I don't even remember who this person even is.
