Sorry for the double-post, but it seemed like a better idea than muddying up the title post...

So, she's just going to keep them there for [unknown] hours? It certainly beats drawing a straight line between them and the hospital, and they have to go home sooner or later. But for them to go home tonight seems... I dunno, about as wise as Kimiko going in to work at Anna Miller's the night after she was on the radio.

Then again, I suppose it would create an entirely new set of problems if she and Piro are both out. Because fans have a right to know their idols' travel plans, you know. XP

Yaku's little ears went straight up! I think she was and wasn't expecting such a very big and in-your-face ninja, quite so fast. She's still adorable though :)

Oh, yeah, I wrote Ping some backstory once.

Yaku has that look of determination that teen girls get whenever they perceive that the adults are all witless so it's up the that girl to "fix" things.

Yaku has twintails and a Ninja on call so she's ahead of most teen girls at this stage of the game

I just had the most hilarious thought.

What if Yaku (being helpful) tells Junpei that Piro and Kimiko are over at the family hotel, so that he can take Miho over there.

I mean... that sort of makes sense. Obviously Kimiko and Piro and Miho are all involved in some kind of crisis so now that the immediate danger is over they ought to get together and talk to figure out what to do next.

Yaku knows the Ninja has stashed Miho some place safe, so, call him and tell him where the other two are (also in a safe location) and have Junpei reconnect them.

Thus Kimiko takes a shower. Piro waits till she's done, and then he goes and takes a shower (to get all that glass out of his back). He comes back out to discover Miho and Kimiko having a nice chat... in a love hotel bedroom. I think Piro's brain might fry.

Actually I was thinking that she perceived Miho and Piro being together as a bad thing, or maybe just Miho as a bad thing... I'm not sure why...

You know, Yaku could potentially be the scariest person in MT; all we've seen in her is some combination of sad/pissed off, and once she gets a grip on her powers(and with a ninja at her beck and call), look out! :ph34r:

I'm sure she thinks of Miho as a bad thing. One of "Mom's obsessions" that resulted in a disaster and her mother in the hospital.

I'm also sure that to Yaku, Piro is in the same category. (Probably has had to endure a few rants from her mother about Pirogoth).

As such, I would say Yaku is more likely to oppose Piro-Kimiko than Piro-Miho.

Though most likely, Yaku finds all the romance shipping to be annoying, and just wants this whole thing resolved as soon as possible so that she doesn't have to deal with it anymore.

Thus getting Miho back together with Piro and Kimiko quickly so they can go do their story whatever thing and she and her mother can finally drop out of the story.

Hmm, tempting...

Kimiko: "I hit her and she almost died :cry: "
Yakugashi: "Again? She's always doing that to mom :| "

[1441].

So Yakugashi seems to have seen it many times before.

It would not be a good thing for the world in general if I could yell "NINJA," and one would appear instantly to do my bidding... besides me never having to make my own sandwich or fetch my beer ever again.

The fox-people appear to know most all about Miho, the closest of anyone. Mugi knows Miho cut out, she's only just a bit wrong about Piro not being able to go too (perhaps normally he couldn't and only could because Ping). More importantly perhaps, they appear to be somewhat immune to the powers. (Kenji appears to not be at all, becoming enthralled, but iirc Mugi did not.) Apparently this extends to Yaku, which as was pointed out, dying, heck, she's always doing that to mom. Which aside from not believing to ninja-smitten, Megumi sees through Kimko's ruse (perhaps the awakening did that, or it's just the whole fox-related sort of thing).

Nothing good can come from the constant upheaval to the stories that occur when Miho is around.

Hopefully Junpei is a lot more practical and sensible and of free-will-ish-ness than Yuki was, and doesn't push the story along those ways where it won't resolve and keeps morphing into more. At the least, he's pretty clued in, even if he doesn't know where they're from or why the backup orders are there. In many ways he is at the least somewhat to very mostly immune to the shenannigans.

Right, see, now, Piro should get to decide for himself if he keeps going along with what Kimiko has been telling him, not have the situation (trying to figure out what the heck is going on, or hitting him in the head with a water bowl, or opening the door into a collapse) making decisions for him.

Looks like the stage is almost set for a third-party intervention...
Because we now have the complicated Miho x Piro x Kimiko situation, a vicious triangle - whatever any of those 3 might do or not do, will affect all 3 of them.

Haha, she’s into drawing manga too — yay! =D

And of course, Junpei is as quick as he can. And as close.

Thanks, Fred! I had some LOL again while reading this comic! By the way, it seems to me that you are picking up some of Junpei’s speed!

Nice, quick update! =)

Oh, and… @paarfi ? GREAT POSTER!!!

This is just a really elaborate play on the "twintails" thing isn't it? Actual twin tails.

Does Yaku even know Piro and Kimiko, or about Piro x Miho? If this were Yuki rather than Yaku, I'd agree. But Yaku's only source of info on all this (to this point) has been Mugi, and the only time Mugi heard about the "new story" of PxM-happily-ever-after, she dismissed it out of hand [1356]. If this were Yuki rather than Yaku, I'd totally agree. But I don't know Yaku has the info or inclination for that yet.

Honestly tho, I don't know what Yaku has in mind. Mugi seems fairly safe snoring away in the hospital bed. I'm not sure what Yaku feels she needs Ninja-assistance for. Maybe she wants to go tell Miho off for hurting her mom?

I don't think she knows about PxM yet, really. But she clearly doesn't approve of Miho.

Agreed on the first, not so much on the second. Mugi didn't know that Piro was the person behind Pirogoeth until very recently [1344]. And even then, Mugi tends to say "Pirogoeth" when talking about that issue, rather than "Piro".

As far as we know, Yakugashi doesn't know that Piro exists. Kimiko ran into Yakugashi when the latter was first introduced in [1438]. As for what Sackett said about Junpei bringing Miho, Kimiko and Piro together at The Foxhole, that will not happen, as Kimiko and Piro have been working towards separating the horde away from Miho.

Yay, another Yaku comic~
(Yaku is the eldest bratling's favorite, because they're so much alike - in fact, sometimes I wonder who told Fred about my kid.)

And I honestly don't think Yaku has a dog in the PxK/PxM shipfight... she's got her own worries.
