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

So, umm, Kimiko was still being Miho? That's some serious method acting.

Or maybe this her way of dealing with the fact that Piro wasn't really responding. It gives her an out (Haha, I was just being Miho), and it keeps him from feeling bad about 'rejecting' her.

Edit to add:
Also, this makes 6 story comics for January. Fred hasn't been able to do that since 2010. Thanks again to everyone who supports his Patreon, or subs him on Twitch, or buys artwork and swag from the Megagear store, or buys the Megatokyo books, or even just reads the comic and enjoys it. It's you folks that make it possible for Fred to do this.

Kimiko just brought back the discussion about whether she's doing what she wants for herself, or things that she believes Miho wants.This certainly provides a way for the story to diverge. Kimiko goes to wash the toner, comes back and:
  • Piro is missing (went to make sure Miho really is safe?)
  • Piro is passed out (He was presumably up late and has had a hell of a ride recently)
  • She "returns" to being Kimiko

The hesitation in panel 5 is a little sad from Piro...

I'm gathering he gets the words out in panel 4 BEFORE he gets a mouth full of Kimi?

I'm pretty sure this is the second kiss portrayed in MT. The first being Yuki and Yutaka

2nd *couple* kissing overall. Kimi already mouthed him in the car.

Never fall in love with an actress. They never stop acting.
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.

Technically that should mean it will never get boring, since you'll hardly ever deal with regularity of personality...

I like the detail of Piro's hand from panel 4 to 5. He's definitely getting a grip.

But of course, the movement in panel 5. I don't think Piro's is sliding away, but Kimi has reacted and Piro is reacting to that. A sudden kiss attack interrupted by a single word.

Poor Piro, he looks like his head is ready to explode. (The big question is which head LOL)

Unseen Panel 10 text:

Piro: "The only thing I'll ask of you/You've got to promise not to stop when I say when"

:D

Dammit Kimiko - stop messing with this boy's head.

I mean, he's suffered enough from Miho's head games, don't you start with the head games too.

So Kimi was still playing Miho? Piro is too literal-minded to go along with the charade. She should be herself, Piro will appreciate it.

So that reluctance ... All of it ... Was him playing the 'i was badly hurt by that girl you are playing, you remind me too much of her ' card ? I guess yeah, Kimiko should feel happy of his response. Kinda makes sense.

And he, he should go and help her wash it off but not make any m00v35 till she is back to being herself.

not that we wouldn't appreciate but the last sentence is obviously a joke :)

Jokes aside: he could say 'i would do that with Miho, like, never' or imply some such .

first impression: ......................................................
like, I literally had Piro's face in panel 7 for a reaction to seeing this.

to be fair, Im kinda impressed she kept up this charade this long... was she waiting for the non-existent director to yell "CUT!" Also might explain why she said Piro last comic instead of piro-kun.... will she go back to using it, I wonder.

My hair is black, so my experience getting a faceful of toner isn't enlightening... but I'd note for the record that toner gets electrostatically attracted to the paper during printing. Anyone who's tried to comb their hair on a dry winter day can attest that Kimiko may have a LOT of fun trying to get it all out.

Even more reason that as has already been noted, she's not unlikely to find Piro asleep. (Then again, that might not matter if she's sufficiently determined, and he's a early-rising lumberjack {morning wood}.)

Unless that's not what is supposed to happen, or if it happens anyway for other reasons. Or at least that's how it's looking so far.

Kimiko after a shower: "Now that I'm not playing Miho anymore, there's no reason to pretend I want to get within three feet of you. By the way, Miho totally wants to jump your bones."

Also use cold water, not hot. When toner melts it really becomes a nuisance...

Poor Kimiko.

While actors do portray characters, in order to make them “real,” they must put a bit of their own emotion into them. Even method actors begin building their character’s world view from within themselves.

For a short time, Kimiko got to be the woman Piro loved. Now she has to stop.

Even if that’s not the decision Piro makes, I think that’s where her head is right now. And it’s a sad place to be.

Not all sad girls are caught out in the snow. Some of them will smile like the sun.

"F-bomb the sheets Kimiko! Lets go!!" Should be what Piro says or at least thinks right now. And I do not mean leave this sanctuary of sin. When in Rome... throw your hands in the air like you just don' care and join the Bacchanal with great abandon!
If he is not reaching up to gently pull her face down for more kissing in the next comic it will stymie me into mystification.
OH NO! Wait... :ph34r:
Scene change... :ninja:
OF COURSE! :P
