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

This one is really nice. The sadness on Miho's face in panel 2 that Mugi got hurt because of her. Then the look of relief in panel 4 that she'd brought Yaku back. Yaku climbing into bed with mom. When Miho turns away with that wistful look, I can just hear the piano theme from the end of "the incredible hulk" tv show. She's gonna walk away back into her lonely world. But Yaku stops her. Aunt Tohya is part of the family. She has people who love her for who she really is, and she doesn't need to back to the emptiness.

The tiny smile on Miho's face in P4 speaks volumes.
And Yaku clearly isn't interested in discussing the idea of her leaving, either. They've got a big family, one more won't be a problem, right?

This seems like it's nearly time for Dom and/or Ed to make another appearance.

Too much to hope that Yaku is going to throw Miho out the window?

Oh, no, Miho, you're not going anywhere. You've got a rewrite to finish.

And Mother's Day Sunday (ok technically it was posted yesterday but hey.) too.
Thank you for the new page, Fred.

So somehow Miho didn't think any of the previous pages' worth of talk was anywhere near convincing yet? Must Yaku be getting this serious? ...

Yay! Comic!

Thank you, Fred.

These may all be from before Junpei took on his family (https://megatokyo.com/strip/1525). Can't tell if he has been back.

Out of your entire career of making ridiculous posts about Miho in SD this by far is the most ridiculous.

I'm actually impressed. I would have to be stoned on fentanyl and watch a Beavis and Butthead moron-athon and ask myself "Self, what is the dumbest thing that TWB could possibly post about Miho?" and I still couldn't come up with something like this....

Tsk. See, you need to see the nuance in Teddy's posts. He wasn't saying this in expectation. It's similar to him thinking out loud, or possibly speaking wistfully of an alternate universe where everyone suddenly comes to their senses and realizes he's been right all along.

Protip: Yaku is going to drag Miho into a cuddle puddle with Mugi. The cute will overload you

I imagine Teddy just wants to see — for the sake of scientific progress and well, just… knowledge for the sake of it — if Miho’s head is as hard as Ed’s. Clipping concrete columns and the damage °that° would do to the hospital’s structure. After all, Miho has beaten Ed at °everything°, so far…

Anyway, wow, Fred, that was QUICK! Yay — new post upon returning! Thank you so much!

I love the many origami figures on Mugi’s blankets! =)

And Yakugashi is just sweet — and more so when she communicates without using words.

=)

In a sense, Yaku is being portrayed fairly accurately for a child. These days, children often tend to be pretty smug about things until stuff gets real and then the thin veneer pulls back and you see them for what they really are.....just children put into a scary situation. Yaku has been through a HELLUVA lot over the last little while and what she really needs right now is to be with her mom (Mugi) and her auntie (Miho). This portrayal of her is wonderful in that we have what is a fantastical creature (kitsune) behaving, deep down, like an ordinary child. I hope there really is a group hug coming up. It would be a nice way to cap this chapter of the comic.

Just from a narration point of view, what would a group hug add to the already gripping end of the current comic?

Maybe that will be a scene in the wrinting Yaku is planning.
