You pull away your smartphone from your ear and glance down at its screen, the smiling face of Tomoe Mami beaming up at you with LED-backlit brilliance. You've never lied to her before. Now, you're about to.
>>27701305…Well, there was that one time, when you told her you were training Kumatora, when in fact you simply ditched the trainee Eversor and holed yourself up in your apartment with three stolen bottles of Kong and enough painkillers to kill five grown men. Then there was that time when you lied about Kyoko setting you on fire, grumbling that someone got lucky with a Molotov Cocktail instead, sparing the red-headed Eversor from a heartfelt lecture that could drive even Kirika to tears. Not because of boredom, because of having your entire soul shattered at the concept of disappointing someone so patient, so forgiving, that her crying because of you alone made you want to crush your own Soul Gem underfoot instead.…Alright, so you're not really innocent on the whole 'not lying' thing. But you're trying. You haven't lied to her very recently, as far as you can remember.Maybe.You don't know.But not telling her something isn't the same as lying to her, right?Tomoe Mami doesn't need to know that you're trying to reschedule because Hanegawa Midori asked you out for dinner tomorrow night, right?"Chiaki-san?" Mami's voice floats up from the phone's receiver, tinny and small in this distance. You hold the device back up to your ear, and you state your case."…Breakfast or lunch…?" She echoes you as you finally finish, and you swallow audibly as you hear her shuffling papers around. "Mmm, I'm sorry, Chiaki-san, but I'm kind of booked all day. There's a lot to do, and I don't think I can sneak out long enough for us to have fun together. What's wrong with dinner, anyway?" …It's here, then, that Mami's voice takes on a rather mischievous tone."Or…is Chiaki-san trying to subtly reschedule because she's having someone else for dinner?"How did she--crap. CRAP!"Murderface?" Sayaka turns towards you, one eyebrow quirking upward. "What's up with you? You started shaking all of a sudden."How do you respond?
>>27701329>Yeah, I'm going to be meeting Midori. It's a shame, maybe we can do something another day.The best time of the day is here!
>>27701329>Spaghetti.>Unconvincing denial.Relax guys, Mami is a shipper.
>>27701329[x] "Um. Midori kind of asked me out and I thought she deserved a reward for doing a good job with Kyoko and the whole thing in Siberia where she basically saved my life. Sorry."Why did you dolts think we should even try to lie to Mami?
>>27701329>[x]Midori asked me out for dinner.
>>27701329[X] Wave at Sayaka to shush her down and then reply to Mami, in a very a lame tone, "Y-yeah..."Chiaki IS trying to be more honest, after all.
Rolled 12>>27701329"...guilty as charged. Mami... Midori asked me out for dinner after she solved her assignment eith Kyoko. I couldnt turn her down.... I'm sorry. I really really want to have that dinner with you but... jusy not tomorrow night."
>>27701329"You got me Mami, it's Midori. I don't know why I thought you wouldn't understand."Guys is she gonna come over and clean us up before our date?
>>27701329[x] "I plead the fifth. I happen to be under US jurisdiction right now, so I can do that."
>>27701329[x] "I'm sorry, Mami, but I wanted to take Midori out for dinner as a reward. Can we do the night after instead?"Mami is one of 5 people that Chiaki would actually apologize to, and we are getting that Mami date.
>>27701329"In regards to my predecessor, I'd prefer talking about it as "having dinner with someone" rather than "having someone for dinner" to avoid any misunderstandings... but other than that... Yes."
>>27701329[x] Stammer for a while, then do this >>27701379
>>27701329[X] "MidoriaskedmeoutandI'dreallysorryforcancellingonyoubutpleaseunderstandI'msorry!!"And then kinda cringe while holding the phone like fearing that is possibly explode. Yes.
>>27701400I know we are on a baseball field, but that doesn't count as under US jurisdiction.
>>27701329[x] Go with the reasonable explanation: >>27701379
>>27701459We left the field with Wendy, didn't we? Either way, it's a bluff, anon.
I can't wait.
>>27701459"Baseball is America. I know this because I beat a witch to death with a baseball bat once. That makes me an expert on the subject."
>>27701477>Leaving Kyouko outAnon, I'm disappoint.
>>27701489Sayaka said herself that Kyoko wasn't going to be a part of it.
>>27701517Say it ain't so.
>>27701517Can we get Green Green next?Hatguy's the one making these, right?
>>27701517So I know that the space between the sock and skirt is Absolute Territory, but is there a name for the place between the glove and the sleeve?
Rolled 2>>27701517Why neco...
>>27701489She's on the other side of the bed. Watching and prepping things... DRAWFRIENDS!>>27701471She lugged us to a bench and ported out herself.
>>27701457This. And don't forget to blush while stammering and looking flustered.
>>27701534That, Sir, is called 'The Friend Zone'.
>>27701530Yep, these are done by me. Midori has already been drawn. I guess NECO just wanted to show off the Mami one after I rushed to finish it last night. Midori will get her turn later, I guess? I really don't keep track of the time myself so the original idea was to have something to help myself and others with that.
>>27701541Right, but usually, when I see detached sleeves, there is no sleeve left on the original top, often leaving armpits exposed. In this case, however, it is different. So I was wondering if there was another name for just the skin around the bicep, or if this was included in "detached sleeves". You know, so I can be accurate in describing my new fetish.
>>27701517Very nice, but her left cheek/jaw (Viewer POV) looks kinda off as if at some point it kinda curves in and then out again... Just me?
[x] Um. Yes. That is. Yes. Um. Yes.Full spaghetti!(I know voting is over, but I still want to spaghettify)
>>27701517Very appropriate time to post this particular pic.
>>27701561No worries, thanks for drawing these for us.Someone mentioned making Pinky's sign a little bloodier (blood trailing down from the words), if it helps.
>>27701600I might give it a try, but it's not particularly high on my list of priorities right now.
>NECO @MGsAreReal 3m>http://pastebin.com/r9jN6byi Mmm, I just can't focus on this anymore, so I'll dig a little bit...it's like it doesn't exist for me anyamore.>-Supposedly, Tomoe is a taste sensation in certain culinary fields…With her sugary dressage and confident smile, she can make even witches drool. I wanna try, too…
>>27701620Just mentioning it.Again, thanks for taking the time to do these.
>super-late MGNQ>need to be up early tomorrowfuuuuck
>>27701639>>27701674>>27701701I don't see the problem.
I'm most amused how Mami's implying that we've figured out how to be subtle.
>>27701639What is difference between SS and S+?
>>27701765Sounds like the joke went over your head.
>>27701787Probably the difference between a B+ and an A. S+ is better than S, but not good enough to be SS.
Sweet, MGNQ going on. I didn't want to go to sleep anyway.
>>27701799Dem ribbons be razor sharp.
>>27701804NECO wants to "eat" Mami. What's there to misunderstand?
>>27701799Doesn't she beat the everloving fuck out of things with the muskets instead of just shooting sometimes?I mean, some people in ye olde times did get more kills using their muskets as clubs.
>>27701711>needing to be up early on sundaysWeak.
>>27701639I see what you did there.
>>27701820Yes she does, may as well swat familiars aside while your discarding your empties. She's also just plain experienced.
>>27701639>Charm SS>not EXneco pls>>27701823Bathurst 1000, mate.
>>27701845Common misconception that she only uses spent muskets as clubs. She weaves together clubbing and shooting seamlessly.
>>27701892Forgot to post the gif.
>>27701399 >>27701378 >>27701349 >>27701348You wave Sayaka off, feeling a cold sweat break out all over you as you sheepishly admit the truth to Mami. Yes, you are in fact trying to reschedule, because Midori…well, she also asked you out for dinner tomorrow night. You're…you're not exactly sure why you thought she wouldn't understand, why you thought you needed to lie about it in the first place. …You're really, really sorry about that.Time seems to slow down to an almost interminable crawl, and for once it's not because of your Shield at all - rather, it's because Mami seems to go quiet at your response, with only the sound of shuffling paper coming from the other end of the line. Your throat goes dry and you feel your chest tighten as you unconsciously hold your breath, waiting for something, anything, hoping against hope that the next words coming from the blonde wouldn't be…well, her telling you how much you've let her down again."…Oh, Midori?" The blonde's voice sounds…pleasantly surprised, instead of the heartbreaking disappointment you were expecting. "Is she the one trying to steal you away from me, Chiaki-san?"W-what? Steal away…? N-no, you were just…uh…You turn to Sayaka, horrified at what you're hearing - and the blue-haired Eversor merely frowns at your expression. "Ugh, what are you doing, Murderface? Making faces? Yeah, really mature--""It's fine, Chiaki-san!" You hear Mami say a few moments after she'd stopped giggling. "Seriously, that was all you needed to say! Honestly, I was wondering when you'd take her out somewhere nice yourself - in fact, I was going to use our dinner to nudge you in that direction, just in case you forgot !"[1/2]
>>27701981O-oh? Mami was going to do that…?"Yes, and it looks like I won't have to!" Another giggle. "Chiaki-san, I'm flattered you thought of my feelings, but please consider what it would've been like if I found out your real reason of rescheduling from someone else. What would you have felt if our situations were reversed, if Chiaki-san asked me out on a date, and I rescheduled without telling you the real reason?"…You'd feel pretty shitty about it."See?" Mami's voice here now carries a mild tone of admonishment. "Granted, I can't scold you too much, since I didn't exactly ask you out, more like simply had Kyuubey-san pass my invitation on…but still, Chiaki-san, even if you know someone's going to get hurt by you telling the truth, you should do so anyway - because keeping the truth from them's going to hurt a lot more in the long run, especially when they find out."Right. Okay. You'll remember that.S-so, uh. When would your dinner with Mami be, then?"Hmm…well, I'm not so sure, but I'll notify you in advance when I get some time off, alright, Chiaki-san? Tomorrow night was supposed to be my night off, that's why I asked you. But, hmm, I'm sure I'll find something else to do." Another giggle. "Ah, how are you and Sayaka-chan? Are the both of you behaving?"Y-yeah. Yeah, you're both fine. She just finished healing you, in fact."Ah, please thank her for me, Chiaki-san, even if you have already." More shuffling of paper, and then a sudden beeping noise in the background. "Oh, there goes my alarm! I have to go now, Chiaki-san, I have dinner arrangements! Good luck with the rest of your operation, and please congratulate Midori for me!"Dinner arrangements? Er…sure. Yeah. That's fine. You'll do that.Mami cheerfully says her goodbyes, and you return them just before she clicks off. You look at your smartphone for a few moments more, before shoving it back into your inventory. Burying your face in your hands.[- ? Mami Points!][2/3]
>>27701987>[- ? Mami Points!]mami pls
>>27701981>>You turn to Sayaka, horrified at what you're hearingI can just see Chiaki giving Sayaka this expression.
>>27701987>[- ? Mami Points!]There is no adequate words to describe this new feeling I am currently having.
>>27701987>[- ? Mami Points!]MOTHERFUCKER!SOMEONE DIES FOR THIS!And now our dinner date with Mami is on indefinite hold!
>>27701987Meanwhile on Mami's screen>[+- 0 Chiaki points. Chiaki is suspects something is up]
>>27702002>>27702049>>27702051>inb4 ? was a negative number (- - = +) and Decu is trolling you all
>>27702059That reminds me I should spellcheck my posts more often.
>>27701987>[- ? Mami Points!]We should have just told Midori to have dinner the night after, and kept Mami's date.Now we lost Mami points, she's disappointed in us again, and get no pancakes.NO. PANCAKES.All because we couldn't tell Midori we already had plans, and to just push her date back by a day.
>>27702051Throw the gems we collected at Pinky. She can do w/e she wants with them. Throw them hard enough to make a dent. Then scream as loud as we can in time stop. Then shoot the bench about 20 times.
>>27701987"Everything okay, Murderface?" Sayaka pipes up again. "Hey, did I miss a wound or what? Do you need some more healing?" You feel a firm hand on your shoulder. "Hey, Murderface. Don't die on me now, fuckface."You're fine, you growl at her, shrugging her hand off. You just need a moment or so.It's here, then, that you hear someone's loud, cheerful, usually-autotuned-to-hell voice coming from behind you, along with a patter of hurried footsteps. Calling your name."Well, better enjoy that moment quick, because the client's here." Sayaka glances at her wristwatch. "Huh. So we're nearly finished with all the song numbers? That's…I thought we were going pretty fucking fast, but not this fast."Well, that's both good news and bad news, isn't it? You shake your head, before reaching up in order to make sure your Warmaster Cap's on straight. Sighing deeply, you stand up in order to receive the superidol - until, of course, you're very nearly knocked down by Iori flying at you from out of fucking nowhere and hugging you tight.No words from her, here, just her crying into your bloody costume. Her arms wrapped around you in a tight, crushing grip."Chiaki-chan!" Ruri reaches you a few moments later, breathless from the jog, her eyes wide and glowing, her smile so wide it should be a grin. "Oh, man, why didn't you tell me you were going to steal the show like that?! I could've arranged the entire show around that exhibition! Everyone's rechirping and reflagging THAT part of the concert like crazy!" The superidol is completely ecstatic, waving both her arms energetically, this way and that - enough that one long, heavy-looking twintail whaps a certain pale-faced Deepthroat in the face. "Our Blu-Ray preorders are through the roof the moment that happened!"[3/4]
>>27702070Can't, we will be on an oil rig. Taking out our frustrations on all kinds of explosive materials.
>>27701987>>27701987>[- ? Mami Points!]Its over! Time to witch out, guys!
>>27702070The problem is that Midori might be curious about the reason we ditched her. And because we're murderface, it's not like we have a whole lot of legitimate reasons to be busy any given night, other than "drinking a lot".
>>27702075Then Mami would end up admonishing us for unWarmasterlike behavior. We can't afford to lose more Mami points!
>>27701987hueCourtesy of Nicehatguy, at the ridiculous and awesome request of an anon a thread or two back.
>>27702083You open your mouth to reply, before the crying, brown-haired idol seems to stiffen in your grasp, and suddenly lets go of you. You blink at this, and you catch a glimpse of her tear-streaked face, a split second before she bows quickly at you, murmuring something underneath her breath before turning on her heel and quickly running in the opposite direction. At full speed."…Uh, well, anyway," Ruri breaks the awkward silence, here. "H-how about those huge punching gauntlet things?! Those were so cool…! How'd you get them in here? Can I see them? Can I try them on?!"…Iori told you that she was happy you were alright.What do you do now?Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)Go after Iori.
>>27702098She has three sets of earswhy
On the subject of Mami points:Should have just told her straight from the start instead of trying to cover up choosing Midori by suggesting breakfast or lunch. Mami really values honesty, so this is mostly about not telling it to her clearly from the start.
>>27702109Human earsCat earsMask ears, it sits on the side of her head
>>27702109The better to hear you with, my dear.
>>27702070Pretty sure we lost points for the lie, not the rescheduling.
>>27702117I thought we were. I hate to do this... But what was the count from the last thread?
>>27702101>Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)Yeah, they cool. Magic. That would probably be a really bad idea.
>>27702101Go after Iori
>>27702101>[x]Talk to Ruri."The bangles transform into gauntlets. And no, you can't see them or try them on. They're damaged, and need to heal. Also, anyone besides myself or Kharn touches them, they start going insane."
>>27702101[x] "No using golden stuff I'm afraid. Probably won't work for civilians anyway. Excuse me." Then go after Iori.
I got the impression we didn't lie so much as just try to reschedule without explaining off the bat? She didn't seem to take it like she was being lied to so much that we should have been more forward instead of rescheduling.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)"No, you can't try them. Don't ask why either. What was with Iori?"
>>27702101[x] Talk to Ruri"Magic. No you can't have them. These are dangerous. Wait, did you say there are recordings of my fight?"
>>27702101Concerts over, contracts over.Disregard idols, acquire booze and cigarettes while Midori isn't. here to intervene with her pesky responsibility.
>>27702101[x] Talk to RuriOthers can do the writeins, just leave Iori alone.
>>27702098>>27702119Oh Jesus Christ, I loathe you. Why are you using the twitter resized version? Eeewwww. Here! Save the right one! >>27702101[X] Excuse yourself and go after Iori while telling hr that, no, she can't try the gauntlets on
>>27702101>tfw really don't want anything to do with Iori, but can't think of anything to tell Ruri besides "no, you can't touch the gauntlets"
>>27702125The lie wouldn't have even come up if we hadn't rescheduled.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri."Magic. No. Double no."
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)"In order: Because you can't schedule terrorism. I wore them. No. Hell no."
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)Bad at write ins, but for the love of god no Iori please.>>27702162Needs more ears.
>>27702162I wanted to grab it while it was still relevant and I lost it in my folders upon folders of MGNQ-related character art. Shush.
>>27702159>Concerts over, contracts over.Are you fucking stupid?This is the FIRST DAY of a THREE DAY CONCERT.We have 2 more days after this.>>27702089No, we won't be on the oil rig, that's not for another 3 days. So we could have easily had dinner with Midori the night after the date with Mami.
>>27702159I can't. remember, is this the case? Was our contract really only until the concert was over?If so, second this. The less time we waste the better.
>>27702101>[X]Go after Iori."Magic fists, they are very dangerous so you may not try them on, excuse me one moment."
>>27702101>[X]Talk to Ruri."They were damaged in the fight, I can't bring them out yet."
>>27702101[x]Go after Iori.Tell Ruri you will show her later, they are on cool down at the moment anyway. And we need to debrief with the squads about what just happened before we go talking about it too much.>>27702148>Probably won't work for civilians anyway.We JUST went over why lying is bad.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri"I'm alright, thanks for asking."Get out a second or third cigarette. We need more nicotine to deal with this one."I hope that counts as my stage presence for the night, because I'm not setting another foot out there unless somebody tries to kill you again."
>>27702202This. Though might wanna change "for the night" to "for the concert."
>more of Iori's bullshitThe ride truly never ends, does it.
>>27702159>>27702190Two more days.
>>27702142>>27702101You know, if we always run after Iori she will get her hopes up again. If she ran away she probably needs a moment and it would be a good idea to leave her for a bit before we get loads of misunderstandings again.
>>27702190>Was our contract really only until the concert was over?Technically it's until Ruri gets to the airport.Of course, this is only the first concert of three that Ruri is giving, so the contract won't be over for at least 2 more days, assuming she gets on her flight right after the third concert is over, instead of going out the next morning.
>tell Iori we want to be friends>be a terrible friendI hope every one of you 'talk to Ruri voters' also voted to cut Iori out completely way back when.
>>27702213She was worried about us.Then she hugged us and got covered in blood.Then she ran away to get cleaned up because SHE IS NOW COVERED IN BLOOD.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri.I believe the jist has already been presented
>>27702217Ugh, maybe we should have just let everyone die.
>>27702217>Of course, this is only the first concert of three that Ruri is givingI thought the concert was one day, but we had to escort her for three further days before she left?
>>27702217I have this feeling that once Ruri gets on her flight at the end of the contract, the plane will explode and kill her.
>>27702225I did. Fuck Iori. And not in the good way.>>27702231Pretty sure it's not about the blood, but the whole getting clingy again.>>27702249One can dream.
>>27702231...Shes going to keep the blood and use it for lewd things, isnt she.
>>27702225Yep.If she were to get killed by some random weirdo while we were far away doing something else so as to have as little backlash upon us as possible, I would be overjoyed.
>>27702101>[x]Go after Iori.And tell Ruri "I'll tell you about it at the debrief." as we go after Iori.
>>27702231>Then she ran away to get cleaned up>Not to put the bloody clothes in a plastic baggy for her creepy Murderface shrineFuck Iori
>>27702249And in that moment, Chiaki felt true joy for the first time in a long while.
>>27702101[x] Go after Iori.
>>27702225Yep. Iori can run off and contract with Jyubey, for all I care.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri.
>>27702101>[X]Talk to Ruri"Trade secret. Same way I'm able to sneak a full flight of MiGs in. And, no, you can't try them on."The best part is that she won't know whether or not we're joking!
>>27702101>[x]Talk to Ruri.
>>27702101[X] Talk to Sallaka"You're in charge now. I'm off to get drunk and then pass out on a couch. And I swear to god if Iori puts those clothes in a plastic bag..."Ignore Ruri.
>>27702308How about no, we're still on the job and have to be professsional.
>>27702101>[x] Talk to Ruri>>27702282This
>>27702316But moooooom, I want to pass out and fondle Wendy some more.
>>27702101[x]Talk to Ruri."You bounce back pretty fast from being in mortal danger. Were you that confident in me, or are you just weird?"
>>27702282>>27702101[x]Do this.And [x]Send "You okay? via sms to IoriThere , now people dont even need to cry anymore about us being mean to Iori.
>>27702316I'm not sure we're in much of a condition. to do anything. other than try to sleep off the damage. Sallaka's healing can only do so much.
>>27702347We can do the debriefing sitting down. Take nap after and take a night shift.
>>27702337I don't. think shes clever enough to work it out. Noone explicitly told her.
>>27702323Post Midori, you silly cat!
>>27702365Yeh, she didn't know the full scope. Also, Idols gonna Idol.
[x] Yeah, SMSing is a good plan.We've got phones so we don't have to run after people who aren't our priority but still worth at least a mention.
Okay, I'm going to bed now because it's 2AM and cars are going fast tomorrow. Here's a list of things I think might be a good idea to do:>Check the three looted soulgems for grief levels, apply seeds as necessary. Can't interrogate witches. Usually.>Send Mine back to home base for interrogation.>Grab a pair of Idols, stick the Hat on one of them, and stuff them into a broom closet. Leave to simmer.
>>27702427No, you fool! If Ruri puts that Hat on, we will be her mindslave!
>>27702476So don't put it on Ruri. Put it on a lookalike of us, and grab Iori, and shove them both in the closet. Problem solved.
>>27702101> "H-how about those huge punching gauntlet things?! Those were so cool…! How'd you get them in here? Can I see them? Can I try them on?!">[x]Talk to Ruri. (Write-in)deadpan "Thanks. Magic or advanced technology, not sure myself. No. No. I'm sorry, they are emergency only." grin "Wanna see a real MiG instead?"
>>27702476>>27702492no no.We glue it to Ioris head.Then Ruri will be Ioris mindslave.
>>27702148>Probably won't work for civilians anyway.What is Kilgore?
>>27702492You monster, they'd never come out.That closet would need to be renovated afterwards, who thinks of the poor cleaners and handymen huh?
>I wish to eat the hat
>>27702540That seems unwise
>>27702536>android callidus from the future>ever being anyone's mindslaveyehnahAlso I just remembered something I wanted to ask. Vindicare use range weapons, Eversor use melee, Callidus are illusionists, and Culexus are antimagic, right? Well what do you call magical girls who fight mainly using magic itself, like Ahriman?
>>27702557A Witch in MG clothing.
>>27702557Doubly magical girls.
>>27702557Talked about this with deculture a while back. As far as I remember, we figured they would still be Vindicare.
>>27702538The same guys that clean all the viscera and gore in video games.
>>27702588Eeh. Feels wrong.
>>27702557It's not the combat style they use, it's more of the role they play in a squad. You could be a mainly magic user but still be an Eversor if your magic is only useful at close range.At least that's what I assume.
Stopping here for today because my stupid POS laptop is acting up and my patience with it has reached its limits. Gonna go grab breakfast or something
>>27702604Think of it this way.Eversor = front rowVindicare, back row.Callidus are supportAnd Culexus are ???
>>27702613Bueno.Nice color-coded backgrounds.
>>27702613I actually like it better without colours.
>>27702613Lewd. But I like it.
>>27702613Looking forward to seeing nekkid Chiaki in color. Those scars should look interesting.
>>27702604What >>27702611 said. The ones that use primarily offensive magic missile type shit are Vindicares. But you still have some, like Wendy or Odette, that incorporate a fair amount of magic into their fighting style but still fall under other ranks because of the way they use their magic.
>>27702617>Upon contracting, the Incubator would assign the fresh contractee her rank, whereupon her training, care and support would depend on. The ranks are as follows:>Eversors: Magical Girls specializing in close-quarters combat, or melee. >Vindicares: Magical Girls specializing in long-range combat. >Culexus: Magical Girls specializing in anti-magic countermeasures. >Callidus: Magical Girls specializing in stealth, subterfuge and espionage. from thread 63. I think most magic attacks make a lot of sense being classified as ranged combat. Thought there was something else for a while until I hit that archive a few days ago.
>>27702611>>27702617I think it's more than just role, though, because I vaguely remember something about there being more types than just the main 4, but they're not terribly useful so they just get stuck with office work.Also there's the "Eversor physiology" that gets brought up every so often.
>>27702658That refers to shit like Sallakas magic.
>>27702641>>27702649>>27702658Still feels wrong to call them Vindicare.
>>27702658>Two other ranks, Venenum and Vanus, were once part of the group, but had long since been eliminated, more for their limited combat capabilities than anything else. Those who fell into these ranks were put to work as medical staff and/or intelligence, and were kept from active field duty.also from thread 63. But I think some Officios still use these ranks.
>>27702675Would melty pipe girl be an abnormally strong venemum, then?
>>27702675There's also Maerorus, which, well.Hahaha!
>>27702689Eversor, more likely.
>>27702671Kyoko uses it too as an excuse for eating a lot and stuff.
>>27702689You mean Sabrina Blackburn? She's a Culexus if memory serves right.>>27702693Right, those. They were not mentioned in that manual, probably too rare or secret to include them. We'll have to wait and see i guess.
>>27702698>Magic poison melty field that wrecks everything around>She is classified based on her use of a crummy old pipeOfficio logic
>>27702675hmm.Would that chick from Golden Empire fall into one of those camps?Come to think of it shed be godlike with firearms.
>>27702719>She's a CulexusNope. Malal modified a culexus suit to stop her from melting things all the time, but she's not a culexus.
>>27702723Melty field is relatively short range. Has to get close.
>>27702723Her magic is most potent in melee range.
>>27702723You don't even see your own stupidity, do you?She has to be CLOSE to use that ability. Melee distance doesn't scream Vindicare to me, does it for you?
>>27702745It screams Venenum to me. Not Vindicare OR Eversor.
>>27702723Not everything works the same way. Gina, despite having a mace as a weapon, is still a Callidus. Though its my own oc, so I guess I better get back writing.
>>27702769So murdering screams healing to you. There's really something wrong with your mind and I recommend seeing a psychiatrist before you start killing random people, because they coughed.
>>27702731>"We decided that since Sabrina's powers work the same way as a Culexus does, then a hardsuit would probably work. After a few modifications, and all."That confused me, is all.
>>27702793Venenum is poison. Most of them just aren't as useful as Eversor or Vindicare for straight up murder, so they get office or medical jobs.
>>27702160 >>27702158 >>27702157 >>27702143 >>27702138You watch as Iori's retreating form disappears behind a gaggle of extras, the brown-haired idol shouldering aside a few as she continues to run. Before you could turn back to the other idol addressing you - the latter markedly much more annoying than the former - it's here that you see Sayaka step forward, taking her own blood-spattered gloves off."I'll go." The blue-haired Eversor's voice is somewhat resigned, somehow, but also carries with a note of relief. "Stay here, keep watch on the principal. Alright?"You silently nod at this, before quietly thanking her."…Yeah." Sayaka shakes her head, before heading out, calling the brown-haired idol's name as she does so. One extra gets in her way, and gets very nearly knocked into the floor if it weren't for his fellow extras cushioning the impact. Leaving you alone with your client, who seems to have also taken in the strange scene."She'll get over it, Chiaki-chan." Ruri's voice is soft, uncharacteristically tender. "I know she doesn't look it - no idol looks it - but we're made of really tough stuff. At least, in here." She points to her chest, right above her heart. "We can't fall in love with just anyone, and even if we do, we have to live with the fact that it's just not possible." The super idol shakes her head mournfully. "Two, maybe three days alone, and she'll be okay. We take this idol thing seriously, you know."…Where'd that come from, all of a sudden? She was asking you about your gauntlets earlier, like some kid hopped up on pure sugar. Could she at least warn you beforehand if she's going to switch personalities on you like that?"Can't, that's part of the appeal!" She winks at you, all sobriety gone, replaced with her typical idol bounciness and cheer. "And if you'll note, that was my Wise Beyond Her Years voice! Right now I'm in the I Can't Believe My Super Idol Is This Cute In Person voice!"[1/2]
>>27702826Yeah. You can tell. Anyway--"I still have to ask about those cool punchy things, though! Really, where are you hiding them?" She looks around and behind you. "How are you lugging 'em around?! And how do they feel like? Don't they weigh you down a whole lot when you're using them?!"…You explain here, to the ecstatic idol, that….well, the gauntlets are magic. That's it. You can't really describe how they work, because she'd never get it, and you're pretty sure it's classified to non-Officio people. And no, she can't wear them or try them out. That last bit nets you the saddest-looking pout from the super idol, one that you actually had to look away from. Not because it's working, but because you feel insulted that she think it'd actually work on you. For fuck's sake, you're not that big of a pushover."…Well, they're still cool, anyway." Ruri says after a moment, taking a seat on the bench you'd been resting on - and you find yourself taking a seat too. "How did it feel, though? Using that kind of thing?" It's here that you catch the faintest hint of hesitation on the idol's voice, as if unsure on how to continue here but doing so anyway. "…It kind of looked like you were really having fun, earlier, Chiaki-chan. But in a sort of...scary way."How do you respond?
>>27702844"Well, my old nickname wasn't Murderface for nothing..."
>>27702844[x] A job's a job. I do what I have to to complete a mission. Including walking through any obstacles that pop up.
>>27702844[x] "It kinda was. A bit. Yeah. At least until the skewering and unskewering, really."
>>27702844I was trained personally by the last warmaster.Who is a blood crazed berserker when she's not making out with her boyfr-Research assistant.Also, they were made by a Strange and Eldritch Being of Unimaginable Power. So there might be some mindfuckery going on as well.Is there any whiskey around?
>>27702844Lets give her the most sadistic smile we can muster."Ohh yes, it is fun. These gauntlets especially, I've used more than my fair share of weapons. But these are special."
>>27702844[x] "You don't really think about that stuff while fighting. You can do things you'd never want to normally without even noticing when you're in a battle-trance."
>>27702844[X] "It's hard to explain but you never want to experience something like that yourself."
>>27702844That was my war face. You have your different personalities for performance and backstage, I have a war face.
>>27702844[x] "Occupational hazard. Feels good while doing it, then you wake up later feeling you drank one too many bottles of Kong, realizing you screwed up your mission. Again."
>>27702844"How would you feel swinging around gauntlets as big as yourself? Yeah it's kind of fun, but it doesn't outweigh being stabbed half dead. Can we stop taking about that now? I'm kind of tired."
>>27702859This, they call her Murderface for a reason.
>>27702844[x]"Well, this is my way way of earning salary. And I could finally blow some stream after babysitting you. Sheesh, no more idol mission until my retirement. " [Lite cigarettes while speaking]
>>27702859>>27702942Well, actually, no.Murderface in the flashbacks was not shown enjoying or even taking pride in her work. Just being very thorough and relentless.
>>27702904>meI would also like to add something along the lines of, "But just eviscerating people isn't fun. No, that's just part of the job. They need to deserve it. Those girls deserved it."
>>27702844[x] "Feels great, until you realise you've almost murdered one of your own subordinates."
>>27702844[x]"Their leader managed to get on my nerves, thats all. The other two were collateral damage."[x]Hairflick
>>27702934I now want a chikai version of zergface.This is my FOFA face
We out of new 'voting ends now pics'? I don't have the Pinky one saved.
And no Iori. Again.Hope we can talk to her after she gets her shit together.I don't get all this backlash against her. She's like a non-meguca Midori.
>>27703114>>27703140Rather than have two banners for a single period, I deleted Midori's because someone went ahead and posted Pinky. Green Green will have to wait until the next vote, I guess
>>27703140Thanks other anon that posted before me. Damn post-delete cooldown
>>27703161>>27703159Or Hatguy. Didn't look at the name
>>27703149I found her sort of clingy and annoying, but not in an endearing way like Midori.
>>27703149A non-meguca midori who hasn't tried gone into the depths of our own personal hell to rescue us, and generally screams and is useless and jealous rather than the slightly more capable but significantly more brave Midori. (let's not start this up again, please)
>>27703149Seriously, I have never hated Iori. As far as I can tell, her only crime is not being Midori and trying to woo us, but that doesn't make much sense to me.
>>27703149>>27703233She's just no fun to read. That was the only thing she had to do to draw my ire.
>>27703233I seem to remember she started getting hate long before bonding with Midori in the interrogation room way back when, so I don't think comparisons there is the root of it.
>>27703231She would have, meguca or not. Only reason she didn't is because we didn't bring her along.
>>27703233Her original crime was being a bitch when we were trying to do our job. Granted, that was still in the grumpy smokey drunk stage, but she still was still a bitch.
>>27703231So you hold not going to Siberia against Iori, when she wouldn't have been allowed there anyway, and as for being generally useless and screaming:1. first time in the hotel suite; we were generally useless and sitting in the recliner until Pinky got us out of Midori's illusion. 2. second time, we were fighting Kilgore and not even Kyouko was able to do much to him, and I don't see you saying Kyouko is useless; we needed Tiny Pete and an anti-material rifle. 3. she wasn't brought to Siberia so of course she couldn't jump into a Witch Barrier after us. >>27703294That's a matter of opinion, so I'll let it slide.
>>27703304It's because it was a very one-sided love of a silly little girl with her bodyguard. (NO MORE IDOL MISSIONS)(EVER)(FOR ALL TIME)
>>27703304nah, Iori was fine even at the interrogation scene. When she overheard the Soul Gem licking and reacted badly, many voted in favor of calling her to explain right away, but giving her time to calm down won out. She started getting backlash when we went to the mansion to say goodbye and she gave Chiaki the cold shoulder. That was the point at which attitudes generally soured towards Iori
>>27703294I would like her to be something that will help ground Chiaki to reality in her increasingly mind-fuck of a life. Not something I can fully entrust to another magical girl who is walking into the darkness with us. Just one normal friend.
I think the problem people has with Iori is that she gets rather emotional whenever we try and do something that upsets her. Its more than Chiaki can be bothered to deal with.
Near as I can tell Iori was just cold at the wrong times and clingy at the wrong times and that was the end of that, hate forever.
>>27703149I really didn't like Midori or Iori at all. The change was basically the Siberia arc and the Midori PoV change.So, I guess if Iori manages to rescue us from a witch barrier in the future with her own PoV thread, maybe I'll warm up to her.
>>27703344Just like real life...
>>27702658>Also there's the "Eversor physiology" that gets brought up every so often.just a nice way od saying "gluton"
>>27703394I always assumed it meant "hot muscle girls with hot scars and hot healing powers," but your way makes some sense, I guess.
>>27703322>>27703333I don't even hate Iori; but the thing is?She's not a magical girl, and if she did jump in that witch barrier, she'd have been stupid and have died. And her becoming a magical girl is a terrible idea for everyone involved. The tl;dr version: Iori's not a good person to get involved with for all parties; she fell in love with an idolised image of Murderface who saved her, was jealous and upset when she found out Chiaki was involved with others, bitched around and moped, and even had she a more amenable attitude STILL would not be a good idea to get involved with; because she'd still be useless and shouldn't become a magical girl and has her own life to lead.>>27703340Chiaki's life is never going to be normal; what she needs is someone who's less likely to get ganked by a mook with a gun.
Being involved with Iori in any way is a fantastic way to draw the crazies like Lucius down upon her.
>>27703492Yes. Isn't it glorious?
>>27703340Have to keep in mind the genre, unfortunately.
>>27703502Actually, yeah.We should start pushing for a full blown relationship with her so that she gets killed off faster.
>>27703509I agree! To adventure, brother!
>>27703472I'm not saying that getting romantically involved with Iori isn't a bad idea; I agree with you there.I'm simply pointing out bad arguments and facts, and the irrational hatred of her that some players hold.Not pointing out bad information when it is presented is how such incorrect facts about the past get distributed and believed.
>>27703503You mean yuri?
>>27703509By that logic, we should go with this instead.Everyone can agree on that in some capacity, right?
>>27703523>He thinks MGNQ is yuriEverybody knows this is yaoi, you silly burger!
>>27703538SoujixKyousuke OTPSorry Kharn.
>>27703537Ruri is just too annoying. No. I'd rather explode her face out of the back of her head personally.
>>27703509But what if this causes Midori to witch out, which in turn causes Mami to turn her back on us, leading to us never having her pancakes again!
I think we should shift gears a bit. Lets talk about Yuu.Does our Yuu have the tail? Can we gain a proficiency with it and use it in combat? If we get good enough with her, do you think we could pull off the 4 arm thing.That would probably require a double stack of Yuus FotFA I think. Or let her take over entirely.
>>27702844Tablet broke again. Aaaaaaaa
>>27703575That's excellent, but shouldn't the gauntlets be gold?
>>27703587Laughing at illustration, not troubles, btw
>>27703595They've been burnished black, with the gold underneath.Which is a little worrying, as this implies that the Gifts can be hidden in that manner.
>>27703595No, the gauntlets have been described as black over gold. After too much punching or blocking, the black peels off to reveal gold.
>>27703571>4 arm thingWhat is the "4 arm thing"?
>>27703595I think the gauntlets are actually black on the outside. I think we only saw the gold when Julius sliced them open toward the end of the fight.
>>27703571Well. HE does have a tail. Just not in the way you meant it.
>>27703612>this implies that the Gifts can be hidden in that manner.That's actually a good point.We should experiment by trying to spraypaint Muramasa with black paint.We can see if the hiding of the gold sheen has to be a property of the weapon or not.
>>27703575I just realized missed pretty much the ideal time to draw Ruri as Chibi-Miku-San.More aaaaaaa.
>>27703575>mfw Ruri will want her propmakers to make those from carton or plastic for some other future performance
>>27703635Nah, trap would be stupid, given both no evidence of male meduka being a thing and Yuu being an actual (female) character borrowed from somewhere else.
>>27703523Noir, dude, noir.Nothing can ever truly go right for the hero until the very end.
>>277036164 punchyfists, silly anon.
>>27703616Normally you only see the two, but str has four. Note the two normal(still fuck huge and metal) arms used for stability. While the other two are holding BRSs weapon and BRS.
>>27703660MGNQ hasn't really been noir since thread 2.
>>27703656Someone didn't read the last thread.
>>27703667>>27703700So what you're saying is maybe I should watch BRS?
>>27703667Looks like I'm going to have to raid Danbooru again.
>>27703712You mean the one where we said something misinterpretable and then Yuu made a half articulated statement that was never finished or clarified so anon went retard with it?
>>27703712That was all dumb and almost entirely unfounded speculation (in that at least two other completely plausible interpretations were posted).
>>27703724Unfortunately Strength/Yuu is only present in force in the series, not the OAV. Which is both good and bad.
>>27703729It's like you were actually there!
>>27703724Even Decu will tell you not to watch the entire series, but there's a Only-the-fight-scenes collection floating around that's worth watching.
>>27703747We have reason to suspect, but we have just as much reason to doubt. That being that Yuu is the original user of the gauntlets. Yuu is a girl in her source material. Only a magical girl can be the original users of a golden weapon.That's how it stands now, Decu has not told us if magical shonen exist.I don't really care either way. Yuu is Yuu, and Yuu is a good girl. Even if HE is a good girl.
>>27702946 >>27702941 >>27702907 >>27702892 >>27702888Fun? You slouch forward again, taking your own glasses off momentarily to rub the fatigue out of your eyes with your blood-caked fingers. It's…no, you've never thought of it as fun. You're not going to lie, there is some small part of you that enjoys hurting people, but the way bigger part of you considers it a job. A paycheck. A way to earn your salary. It's like Ruri with her singing gig - she gets paid to sing autotuned shit, you get paid to hurt people. And protect them from time to time. Simple as that."…Is it really that simple, Chiaki-chan?" Ruri murmurs, her tone curiously pensive. "You don't look like the sort who thinks money's really important." You turn to her, one eyebrow quirking upward questioningly, and she smiles. "Oh, you know what I mean." The green-haired super idol nudges your freshly-healed ribs with a gentle elbow. "You're not like the other Magical Girls I hired before. You don't obsess over your own image, you're not checking your smartphone every ten seconds, and you're not tripping all over yourself trying to, you know, impress me or make nice with me, and all. You're not…" The idol makes a cyclical gesture with a hand, her delicate fingernails painted a bright electric green shining as the light from the corridor hits each one. "…hungry, in that kind of way. You're hungry to prove yourself, or…or to make sure someone close to you isn't disappointed. I mean, Warmaster and everything, that's pretty important, right? You don't get to that kind of rank without a whole lot of experience, yeah?" She turns to grin at you. "Did I get Chiaki-chan right, or what?"…You're not going to say she got everything wrong, but what's this about? Is she trying to analyze you now?[1/2]
>>27703796Not trying to shitstorm, but we really have no reason to suspect because on all our previous encounters we treated her like a girl, she acted like one and responded to it.
>>27703796>dat gifWhy do they eject ENTIRE unspent rounds and not empty casings?
>>27703802"I did say I wanted to learn more about you, Chiaki-chan, remember? That's what I'm doing." Ruri makes a triumphant sound, here, crossing her arms underneath her ample chest. "And honestly, trying to do that's been as easy as stirring dried concrete! Sometimes you're an easy read, sometimes I can't even predict what you're about to do!"Hnh. Well. You'll count that as a good thing, considering keeping hostiles guessing is kind of part of the entire deal.You do note, however, that she didn't even ask if you were alright. And for someone who was moments away from death, earlier, she bounced back really quickly."…Chiaki-chan, I'm a Super Idol. The only one in the world, and the best there is." Ruri shakes her head at you. "This isn't the first time something like this has happened, you know! Us idols are walking targets no matter where we go. Whether it's a charity concert or a fundraising or an album launch, some idiot gets it into their head that it'll be nice to kill or rape or kidnap one of us, just to show how big his balls are." She lets out a sigh, here. "Yayoi-chan and Iori-chan aren't special cases, you know. And it's not just Tojo Group trying to get me into their family as some sort of breeding…thing." She makes a face, here. "I wouldn't say we've got it just as dangerous as Magical Girls, but I'd say we're kind of close!"Right. If it was that dangerous, though, why continue? She's probably rich enough to retire at her age, right? Enough money to last three lifetimes?"Five, actually," Ruri giggles, before suddenly leaning in closer, her voice lowering to a conspiratorial whisper. "But…I'll let you in on a little secret. It used to be all for the money, at least in my case. But then, I met someone, and that changed. Now…" She leans back, a self-satisfied smile on her face. [2/3]
>>27703807the hands have built-in bullet checkers and those bullets were ejected to stop them from jamming
>>27703812There's a moment of silence between the both of you, and before you could reply, Deepthroat sidles up to the idol and whispers something in her ear. Ruri blinks at this, before jumping up to her feet. "Oh, I didn't know it was already Encore Time! I forgot!" She twirls in place, once, before posing in front of you. "Alright, time to get this concert wrapped up! Wait for me, Chiaki-chan, I just have a few new songs to plug, and then we're good to go!" And with that, she runs off, Deepthroat in tow. You almost make to follow her, until you see the tell-tale glow of Enishi shadowing her - along with two of Squad Hiryu at her heels.You sit back down on the bench, feeling more tired than you've ever been. Letting out a sigh, you take off your Warmaster's Cap, placing it on your lap, and listen to the crowd get kicked into high gear again with one of Ruri's songs starting up.…You hope Iori's okay. You made it clear to her that you only wanted to be friends, so maybe…maybe this approach will help cement that.You frown, here, as you realize that by hugging you, she got blood all over her costume, too. Which probably would NOT have helped. Ugh."While I don't condone my agents - including my Warmaster - slacking off while being on duty, I think you can be excused this time, Matsuda." It's here that Kyuubey's voice rings clearly in your head like an alarm bell, causing you to stiffen up in surprise. "It's not everyday you fight off a principal assassination attempt in front of a live stadium audience. And stylishly at that."Damn bastard mutant cat, what's he doing here?!"Hm?" Kyuubey tilts its head to the side as it looks at you. "I arrived with the conveyance you requested, the one to take your prisoners back to the Headquarters for interrogation. I wasn't doing anything else at the time, so I thought to check up on you personally, see how my Warmaster's doing."[3/4]
>>27703807That's part of the double minigun feature. Hand cannons are still hand shaped. With no way to eject other than dumping them all at once.
>>27703841…Well, if that's all he's up to, then sure. You shake your head, rummaging in your inventory for your spare pack of cigarettes- the other spare you kept around in case your first spare got stolen, or something. The cigarillo you were smoking earlier already nothing more than a bitter memory on your tongue. You find your squashed, double-spare pack, and you coax a bent cigarette from it. A click from your zippo and a puff of smoke, and you could breathe again.If he's looking for a debriefing, then he'll have to wait until the mission's over."About that." Kyuubey turns back to the baseball field, his round crimson eyes glinting with the spark of fireworks being released into the air as the encore continued. "I've received word from 2020 Productions - Kirishima's agency and our de facto client - that they will be cutting the operation time by half. Meaning, the mission ends formally tomorrow morning."Tomorrow morning…? But there's another concert tomorrow, right?The Incubator shakes his head. "2020 Productions has decided that the current climate, as it is, is not safe for Kirishima. The official excuse, which will be released to news agencies tomorrow, is that Kirishima has come down with a temporary illness that requires a lot of bed rest. There will be refunds, I imagine, and televised apologies. Of course, they're still paying for the entire duration - this was after the contract with us was signed, after all." He looks at you. "I'm sure you're very disappointed. You were looking forward to spending more time with the principal, weren't you?"How do you react?
>>27703872"As much as one desires the pox. What now?"
>>27703872[x] Very disappointed. Now to decide on how to celebrate these grave news.
[x] "Sure. Yea. Disappointed." Then pull out the captured soul gems and say "We should deal with them. If you could have something extra special unpleasant whipped up for Lucius, that'd be just great."
>>27703872>that they will be cutting the operation time by half. Meaning, the mission ends formally tomorrow morning."...Want me to pet you for a little bit?""Just as well, we and they are probably gonna make bank either way off of the show I put on."
>>27703872Offer him a smoke.
>>27703872[x] "Is the timetable for the remaining mission moved up? And still, I'd feel better if we kept a team on the principal for a little longer; at least until we've taken care of the rogue MG group. Have you found anything on them yet, by the way?"
>>27703872[X] Disappointed? Not Very much. Did you get to see Mami before you came over? Also, this >>27703906
>>27703872Snrk. "Disappointed? Try fucking ecstatic. No more idol jobs, ever again."
>>27703872"I have no opinion on the matter."
>>27703872Snort, hair flip, light cig up, close one eye, gesture with thumb to where the prisoners should be based on what Kyouske should have told us. Then cross arms, and tell him you're still on mission and can't be bothered right now.
>>27703872>[x] Look at him blankly and say nothing.
>>27703872Whatever we say, let's tack on a little bit about needing some time for training with Sayaka so we don't get skewered again.
>>27703872[X] Reach into our shield and retrieve Ayumu's gem. "Not particularly... I'll have to find some way to deal with this sudden news." a nice glass of Kong while relaxing in our comfy chair.
>>27703872Scratch his head absentmindedly."It's a job, I'm not paid to care."
>>27703936Actually, I kinda like this.
>>27703934lets use Lucius as our Whiskey cube
I don't into MGNQ. Who is Iori in Madoka terms? And is Midori equivalent to Hitomi?
>>27703872[x]Dead silence. Then "Oh right.. I forgot even you sometimes make jokes.
>>27703872[x]"Does this sudden decision have something to do with my improptu performance earlier? If its about the Tojo-Group, if I am still hired to protect Kirishima until tomorrow morning, right?This means I could visit the Tojo HQ tonight for some 'premptive protection measures'. "
>>27703872"You're not going to have her move into my apartment like the last time I saved an idol from attempted murder, are you?"
>>27703910That reminds me.[x] I would like to get a list of all the girls from the Third that were absorbed during the merger. Accounted for and unaccounted for, dead or alive.
>>27703872[x] "My heart is breaking. And what about poor Sayaka? She was so eager to meet her idol, and now her time is cut short!? Surely we can arrange to have her escort the principal to wherever she's going to get out of the spotlight at least, I know it would mean just SO much to her."Gotta make sure she doesn't go too soft on us and is an ineffective check, this should burn some goodwill in a safe way (not that I think Kyuubei would agree to this anyway, but worth a try).
>>27703947As somebody else who didn't know shit about Madoka before coming in here, I don't think Iori has an equivilant. Midori is apparently visually based on some character named Shion (I think) from some other series I haven't seen either.
>>27703947Not all the characters are Madoka characters. the returning cast is mostly here, then there's a bunch of originals, some loosely based on other shows, at least in appearance.
>>27703947Iori is an idol, madoka doesn't really have an equivilent.Midori is nothing like hitomi outside of hair color. She writes lesbian hentai.
>>27703947Iori Minase is a character from idolm@ster. Midori is an original character based on the looks of Shin Sonozaki from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
>>27703928We can fit that in the day before we go on the next mission.
Thanks for the answers, anons. Although,>Midori is nothing like hitomi>She writes lesbian hentai.Pick one.
>>27703970Though apparently her personality and/or behavior is based on someone Decu knows.
>>27703962We are going for the Murderface Must Die training mode then?
>>27703996I thought the gag about Hitomi is that she DIDN'T like lesbians?
>>27703905we dont make anything off the show remember, we just the event security
>>27703997Yeah, Decu sometimes bases characters on people he knows. Midori is based on a friend. Few threads he also said that Hat-chan might make an appearance
>>27704002We need sayaka without any serious grudges, but with a solid amount of general dislike. Saddling her with Ruri for an extra day on her own seems the perfect opportunity.
>>27704038>Got a fine selection of hats here, my friend
>>27704032If they are going to use our fight for their DVD sales, we better get compensation for it. QB will make it work somehow.Not to mention how we probably impressed a ton of potential clients.
>>27704007Have you heard the phrase "The lady doth protest too much" ?
>>27703872"Well, like a band aid, the sooner this is over with, the less painful this will be. If an idol job comes my way again, remind me of Iori and Ruri.">>27703954This too.
>>27704054Yes. By faggots who think that everyone is a faggot in denial. Some people just aren't and find the practice disgusting enough that even thinking about it makes them physically ill.>>27704055The hell?
>>27703841Time to shine, I guess
Gah, sorry everyone. I wanted to do more this thread, but I need to wake up early later D: We'll continue later tonight, and in a much earlier hour! Thanks for everyone's participation, and feedback is always great! No writeups for today, questions answered before I sleep!
>>27704117Is Yuu a dude?
>>27704096It's sonozaki fan art, the character midori was based off.In other words, it's alternate universe midori.
>>27704117Would the missing girl resolution have been the same if we'd gone for that instead of the concert first?
>>27704117I just wanted you to know that in the Shadowrun game I am participating in, my character is a yuri and magical girl fangirl, and one of her favorites is MMxMM. The high point of the first session was saving CIAPHAS CAIN, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM from a group of thugs, and the low point (or maybe another highpoint) was getting molested by a female Accelerator.But yeah, Magical Mindy is a huge fan.
>>27704125 no actually yes
>>277041174 arm swag?
>>27704117If being courted by other idol companies is reasonably common as Ruri implied, why doesn't her current one have more shit in place to stop them nabbing their best seller? Kyousuke and Co hardly counts and don't seem to have any authority anyway (I'm pretty sure if 2020 productions and Ruri both wanted - which it seems they do - they could legally bar the Tojo Group and others like them from approaching Ruri with offers, for example).
>>27704139Huh D:>>27704125It would have certainly been a more involved mission, but the outcome could have turned out the same!
>>27704125Yuu is Yuu
>>27704158Are you the same guy that came into Shadow Quest and said you just wanted SM to know that your players have made up their characters based on Shadow Quest?
>>27704117thanks for running, now I can go get food!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!>Yuu is best weapon!
>>27704117"The Only One in the World"Is Ruri actually a MG version of Decoy Octopus? It would explain the dead body they found...
>>27704055Oh hey, one of Oblivionpar's works. Or at least a recoloring of one of them. Not sure why you decided to post a buffed up version of one of the Sonozaki's, but yeah, that's more or less what they look like, minus the muscles and red hair.
>>27704182No, I've never read Shadow Quest. Is it any good?
>>27704186The poor DEagle has been with us through thick and thin, and you abandon it for some fisting slut.
>>27704170Haha, that's awesome!>>27704158Groups like the Tojo Group have a lot of legal connections to overturn that kind of thing. That's why Magical Girls get hired for this kind of work!
>>27704193Yeah it's pretty good.
>>27704202Does your Mac have a mystical browser that reverses your links when replying? That would be a great reason to acquire a new PC.
>>27704171Decu, is this all going to end in us sticking a pointy object in Wendy's Vital Area?Also that comment about Chiaki being unpredicable...hue. Having a legitamate stable character is nearly impossible in this kind of thing but I think you do alright with what anon gives you Decu.
>>27704192>>27704202Flipsiedoodles>>27704217I'll have to look into it then.
>>27704199until we get some more time using the GDEagle where it doesn't drive us insane I'm sticking with my statement!
>>27704202I think decu got his post links reversed, I guess that's what happens when you're on the moon.
>And it's not just Tojo Group trying to get me into their family as some sort of breeding…thing."So the Tojo Group is pic related for idols?
>>27704230Just want to point out that the DEagle has never driven us to FOFA.
>>27704221Hahaha, sorry about that! For some reason it turns out that way.>>27704224It really depends on the votes! As for Chiaki being unpredictable, I'm sure Ruri meant it in a good way, not in an AzureEarth random kinda way!
>>27704202Is Hat-chan Mami? Because Hat-chan sounds like Mami when posting
>>27704250No, but it got us really close to shooting Sayaka, and made our eyes go black, and made her afraid of us.
>>27704251so >[-?] Mami PointsThat's like -(-1000) Mami points right, because we apologized, and actually showed some courage where it really counts. Taking Midori to dinner to tell her that the only one for us is really M Wendy Right?
>>27704280All of that was before Siberia. And since then, we've more or less been in control while we FOFA. The whole one time we did it.
>>27704007In the same(next?) episode, she pulls a 180 and cries about being left behind and being a third wheel. She totally wants the V.>>27704096>Yes. By faggots who think that everyone is a faggot in denial. Some people just aren't and find the practice disgusting enough that even thinking about it makes them physically ill.The anon doth protest too much, methinks.
Magical Girl Chinatsu when?It would be especially funny if her magic was based on drawing, since everything she arts looks more demented than the average witch barrier.Golden Paintbrish
>>27704280>>27704306There was some mention of Chiaki getting an urge to eat her opponent's flesh. And the acid-blood spittle after the end of the fight. There may yet be some drawbacks to FoFA that bypass or otherwise are unaffected by the Siberia treatment.
>>27704321>And the acid-blood spittle after the end of the fightPretty sure that was from getting stabbed through the torso a few times.
>>27704317And then we kill her because she looks like Pinky?
>>27704317>Didn't know want.She's a big enough asshole to fit right in too
>>27704321Well Kharn said that we might need another, final treatment some time. If these effects still show up after some more training, we probably do need it.
>>27704317>Yuruyuris in MGNQ>Kyoko vs Kyoko: The Final Kyokoning
>>27704287How could Chiaki possibly forget someone like you?It's hardly fair, then this watermelon comes rolling out of nowhere and tries to get stuck on Chiaki's radar by doing some silly self-sacrifical martyrdom tier stuff. Friends with poor survival instincts are generally the first go.We should just tell Midori the truth when we meet her for dinner tomorrow, she doesn't even stand a chance.
>>27704321>acid spitIsn't that a Space Marine standard?
>>27704317Speaking of non-Madoka girls we want showing up...Golden Scissor-Sword user.
>>27704332>stabbed in torso>changes blood to acid bloodI suppose if it were a mix of bile and blood it's possible.
>>27704365Let her have her fun.While she's still around.
>>27704365>>27704389Watermelon plus brown seeds is best ending
>>27704383Most brootal transformation sequence.
>>27704312And another stupid faggot appears. Why do you defend your fetish like furries do?>>27704389I'm going to cash that "IOU" in right now and make you promise to never touch Midori in any way. Ever.
>>2770438310/10 would attend school with.Capcha>lastemo Schoolno capcha, that's not fair, you can't do that me!!!
>>27704412Not even the sexy threesome with Murderface way way?
>>27704356>>27704317Akari would be the best Callidus. Pro as fuck invisibility.
>>27704383>>27704409Who is this and what are they from?
>>27704446I count knife as touching. I count every interaction as touching. Stop breathing on her. Pervert.
>>27704464Ryuko from Kill La Kill. New show this season, it's 2 eps in. Plays on Thursdays. Ep 3 aired earlier today / yesterday or something in theatres in Japan for some reason.
>>27704464>He doesn't know about BASED TRIGGER, SAVING ANIMERyuuko, from Kill la Kill.
>>27704464They're from Kill la Kill produced by Trigger, who did the famous Little Witch Academia.It's "supposed" to be the anime that will save anime.I've watched it, I love it, but I don't think it's going to save anime on it's own.
>>27704489>episode 3 aired earlier todayYou mean I don't have to wait 5 more days, HOLY FUCK CAN THIS DAY GET ANY BETTER!
>>27704504If someone in japan felt like recording it on a camcorder in the theatre, and you feel like watching that, then sure.Have fun.If you don't, it's still a 5 day wait.
>>27704412>And another stupid faggot appears. Why do you defend your fetish like furries do?
>>27704493>produced by Trigger, who did the famous Little Witch Academia.You're missing the part where Trigger is made of ex-Gainax staff, and KlK is packing the writer and director of Gurren Lagann.
>Trigger finds a way.
>>27704518I didn't feel the need to expound information that would likely be lost on someone who was unfamiliar with anime enough to not recognize Kill la Kill for what it is or who produced it.Thank you for adding constructive content to the coversation though.
>MELEE B? [She’s pretty small, isn’t she?]I wonder if that's changing as a result of the glorious fisting doled out to Lucius and friends.
>>27703963Shion is from Higurashi.
>>27704663>MELEE S>TACTICS S>CHARM Swe "owe" her an interview at some point, right? Let's do that before dinner.
>>27703963>>27703947This lovely young woman.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WODY4w5N2Ng
>>27705161Still one of the worst animes. No story to speak of and the faces. Oh god the faces.
>>27705286Had good characters though.
>>27705286>No Storywait what. I understand the faces... but no story?
>>27705303Characters are not worth shit without a story that makes them.>>27705317I never watched it fully, I just couldn't, but as far as I understand it it had dozens of endings, all of them invalidating everything that came before.
>>27705352Those were separate continuities.
>>27705352Well, yes. But in the end there is one real ending... except on Umineko, jerks gave an finished ending even after saying who was the one actually behind everything.
>>27705377Then make separate animes.>>27705383So as I was told it is not worth watching as it's just one massive clusterfuck of stories, because the author was to indecisive to choose ONE story and instead just shoved everything he could think of into one anime.
>>27705383Disregard the story in Umineko. It's all about the magic fights and debating.
>>27705419... how can one ignore the story but remain with the debates?>>27705416Each their own i guess. the reason it apparently ends several times it's because multi-worlds.It's still a decent mystery anime at least.
>>27705461Did I say story? I meant ending. Pretend it, like magic, doesn't exist.
>>27705377>>27705416That's... not true. It's complicated and slightly spoilery, but each route is something between an alternate universe and a time loop. Rika, the blue-haired loli is the one aware of the loop, and is trying to find/create an iteration that doesn't end with everyone dying horribly.
>>27705528I was talking about Umineko. Higurashi had an odd ending, but it worked.
>>27705528Sounds horrible. Not as horrible as I was let to believe, but still far out of my comfort zone.Thank you for clearing this up. I will now stop discouraging others from watching it.
>>27705547Nah, that's not Umineko. That's Higuraishi. Higuraishi was fucking great.Umineko was pretty bad though.
>>27705546>>27705547>>27705571I thought the main discussion was still Higurashi.Umineko, I think, took the same sort of alternate universe/time loop and had the main character from the first loop observing the rest and try to prove that the murders were done mundanely and all of the magic he's seeing was embellishment by the narrator/self-proclaimed witch who is presenting to him the rest of the loops.I only watched the anime for Umineko, but I heard the VNs were all pretty good except for the last one.
>>27705624Yes and no... considering the state and knowledge of the main characters (Rika / Battler) regarding what on earth was going on.
>derailing the remainder of the thread into a discussion about a completely different series from the one it was originally derailed byWith only a few posts, this much is possible for Furudo Erika.What do you think, everyone?
>>27705765I think that I don't even know, nor care to know, who that is.
YFW you realise Midori only survived because of her Wish ("to be loved")YFW you realise that despite her Callidus background, when push comes to shove, Midori is every inch the image of the "traditional" magical girl.. just like in her wish. She saved Chiaki largely with the Power of Love, and in the monent of her total defeat she pulled an upgrade from her ass (or, in this case the Goddess of Magical Girls)
>>27705896We don't even have a face? Subtle.
>>27705896Her wish was "to be loved"? Man, I really need to reread MGNQ now.
>>27705896>she pulled an upgrade out of Pinky's asslewd
>>27705939Midori IS best girl.
>>27705969YFW you realise this is Noir and every Magical Girl only gets one wish.
>>27705991We still don't have a face. Is nobody concerned with that?Midori already has everything she wished... Shit.
>>27705896Upgrade? I thought she just got an endorsement from two very Important People.
>>27705991YFW you realise the wishes of two magical girls were enough to create a time loop that could rip the very fabric of the universe asunder, and in the current universe we have in excess 20, 000.
>>27706013C'mon, anon. You know upgrades never persist outside the movie they debut in
