[1585] rest and recovery

Post by paarfi » Tue Sep 08, 2020 5:30 pm

Fred has posted the new comic to his Patreon. He'll post it to the main site and elsewhere probably tomorrow. The *real* last comic of chapter 12.

Initial thought: If this hotel burns down tonight, Fred is going to be hard up finding new protagonists.

Second thought: Have we ever seen Erika blush for anything other than a totally offhand idea of Largo's?

If Erika actually wants to get romantic she should put her foot down and demand a room with no distractions....

Let's smash!

Time for Erika's Zero Suit Samus cosplay. I'm doubtful of Largo's Link swordplay though.

It's really cute. Largo and Erika make such a great couple. I never would have expected it, but I'm really glad it happened.

The fact that Erika considers the entire string of incidents that included Piro breaking Largo's face and putting him in the hospital along with the destruction of the hospital to be a single, fun, date says something about her....

Largo is the smoothest when he's at his most oblivious. Is this still the same date that started in chapter 10? "Dayz have been counted" indeed.

Now that everyone is in the same place again, how long do you think this building will remain undestroyed?

I'm assuming the room is actually 2900JPY as opposed to 2900USD and Largo is just being Largo. :D

EDIT:
Yep. Nice backref Fred. :lol:

It’s too bad love hotels don’t have cafes. You could have everyone showing up for breakfast. Piro and Kimiko; Largo and Erika, being there wouldn’t be unusual but then Junko and Ping would roll in.

The Fox Hole doesn't seem very far from the hospital, where some other major side characters are, or the more ordinary hotel where Megumi and probably Ping are. It seems like the only major character (that I can off hand remember) that isn't in the vicinity is the Ninja, unless he actually is. Things are surprisingly calm for this convergence of entities.

No, Megumi and Ping are at the Foxhole too.

Oh dear, all the protagonists are starting to gather in one location again. I have a bad feeling about this, things get explody when we reach critical protagonist density. Should the appropriate authorities be warned so they can get prepared, since they are likely still distracted with the hospital shenanigans. And is Largo still this clueless, he has been there long enough to know what a love hotel is by now. Erika may be a little miffed when he just goes to sleep.

Is it just me, or does Erika still have a touch of Moeko about her in panel 7?

Definitely not just j00. =)

Haha, this is a great — sort of — bonus page. Thanks, Fred! =)

Fred just needed some place and an excuse to bring the gang back together for the next chapter. It makes sense...

...sort of.

HOW....CAN....THAT....IDIOT....BE....SO....CLUELESS?! My GOD, he's already had sex with her and been with her for most of the last while. How can he NOT have picked up on ANY of her behavior patterns? Largo SERIOUSLY has to be channeling every single spirit of STUPIDITY that might be roaming around the Astral Plane. That man is a STUPIDITY magnet! I hope Erika gets fully charged up and jumps him like a hungry she-wolf. Maybe the terror (and a few broken bones) will smarten him up.

Uh no, Erika and Largo have not had sex. Largo suffers from an awkward condition and Erika has been very patient and understanding about the situation. The whole point is that Erika's past experiences have all been characterized by a rush to be intimate, not that Erika really minds that much, and Largo is something new and intriguing.

So you would back Largo in a denseness contest against Catarina Claes? =^_^=

Yeah, Erika, you guys have been on a long date; about comic 1190, 11 1/2 years ago...... ;)

Considering how their last close encounter went, some distractions are probably a good thing.

Yes it does. Specifically, that the nearest special forces unit should hire her.

The force of the mutual blushing would set the cafe on fire.

Nope, that very much looks like a Moeko grin.

My working theory is that he used all his Wisdom points to buy extra Constitution.

Well, Invisigoth, they must have at least TRIED to have sex or how else would he have known about this "awkward condition"? The point is, he's been with her for some time now and part of that time has been spent under intimate conditions. I just can not understand how any human being could possibly NOT pick up on some of the vibes their partner is giving off after that amount of contact. I do admit I find Largo to be funny from time to time but this time....he's just a sad excuse of a person. Communication is a two-way street and while most of us struggle with it for most of our lives, we still manage to learn enough over that lifetime to keep us from going postal on each other. Largo though....he's something else altogether.

They could have bangers -- that is, breakfast dogs -- and the plot would quickly become a dog''s breakfast.

That sorta makes sense. He probably needed it to survive a bunch of saving throws from eating SCSI things he found while dumpster-diving for computers.
You know how when you do laundry, you have that one sock left that doesn't match any of the others? That's me.
