Fred has posted the new comic to his Patreon. He'll post it to the main site later today or tomorrow.

Yay Yaku!

Fred mentioned in the Twitch chat that this is kind of a Kagome/Inuyasha reference with the "Sit!". Though the animal parts are reversed.

Junpei is a nice guy.

I can think of so many ways to rescript panel 6.
- Onward my mighty steed!
- On, Shadowfax! We must hasten. Time is short. See! The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid.
- Hi ho Silver! Away!

Sounds like Junpel likes Komugiko. I see a triangle forming. Poor Megumi

I can't wait to see how Yaku gets on with Ninja-girl once they arrive....

Welp, looks like Yaku has decided to take a hand.

Also, Junpei, this is what you get for abandoning the way of honor for the way of love.

Typo panel 8. Ninja-speak not contain copula ("be"). :ninja:

Other than that, pretty damn funny. :D

I am continuing to be worried as I hinted at in the last thread... The number of people being gathered at Junpei's villa who are "sick of your shit" is increasing at an alarming rate. Junpei will have his hands full trying to keep the peace. (Hopefully grandmother-kunoichi-sama will finally make an appearance and help him out? Or will she just be sick of all the youngsters' shit? :ph34r: :lol:)

That's what ninja-editing of a story may lead to ;)

Woah. Kind of cold, Yaku. Bad karma comes of that kind of thing.

So does confronting beings that you seem to know nothing of, in a place you aren't supposed to be.

SD seems to no longer need the tinfoil hat that it had made from merciless hammering on Occam's Razor. This is a strange state of affairs. I do hope that it finds the need for it again someday.

Yaku is acting like a bit of a cow, but I suppose she has had a bad day...

Good question. But as Fred would say, never underestimate a plucky young female. She probably doesn't know either. :D

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who caught that.

Improvise, I should think.

:D

Great comic, Fred! Especially the haughty empress wave of Yakugashi’s hand in the last panel! =D

She's a 13 year old girl! She intends to fix everything, after all she's at the age when her knowledge of Life, the Universe, and Everything is at its maximum!

"Less talking, more ninja-ing!"
This bit alone contains so much w1n on its own, it just fixed my bad mood in the blink of an eye.

Well, not quite the dialogue I expected, but perhaps she wanted to try out the ride before giving her seal of approval to the relationship.

And Inuyasha homage ftw.

Wow. So at that age everything anyone has to remember is ‘42’… That’s nice! =)

hrrmm, another person wanting to solve.... ???? by going to the source of... something? How does this do what, for Mugi or Megumi or the situation? Did she actually get it into her head Miho is causing all this, and that Miho can fix it as well? Not necessarily surprising and not necessarily a good thing. If they get there.

So, what does Yaku have planned, and in such a coercive manner! Interesting.

Maybe we'll get to see if the person Miho is interacting with is an interloper dressed as ninja, a random compound ninja, or a relative of Junpei. Sister or mother or grandmother. Disguises or magic or whatever.

At least if we get there it would show if Miho is still there, and what she's doing or not. Whatever Yaku is trying to accomplish.

Yaku orders Junpei-ninja to take her to the presence of Miho...who we last saw at his ninja family's compound... Miho being busy avoiding breaking a very obsessed ninja-family guard.

Why does Yaku need to confer with Miho?

Miho has been called 'the real thing' by some observers who might be crazy enough to know. She's NOT a Story Character Analog: She's not patented. She's not Monetized. She's the Real Thing. Miho is the avatar that represents a story to entertain a large involved audience, within MegaTokyo's world. She was the avatar of an evolving story from older times when stories were told in more 'unsophisticated' ways, (with hardly *any* impact on their cultures). She was an avatar inside the huge culture-bending multiplayer artificial intelligence of the End Games server. Miho is a story avatar who learned & changed things. Miho is a story avatar that changed her story.

That must be very confusing to have happen. It might be difficult for such a new story to find her grounding Under Heaven.

Have we seen anyone else in these MegaTokyo stories who is *clearly* the Real Thing?
(Clue: They seem to have furry ears and tails.)

Yaku has a message for Miho.

Next thing you know, Piro x Kimiko will be sending 'fox-telephone-over-ninja' messages to Miho (remember Miho can not call to check if Kimiko is OK after the death scene, but she expressed she wanted to.)

I can’t help laughing every time I read Yakugashi’s ”Less talking, more ninja-ing,” at Junpei — of all people. =D
