Alright guys, for various reasons, I don't belive there's gonna be a
MiG update today (Doing research, updating stuff, headache, roomate
So, I'm gonna host a little Q&A session. Feel free to ask me
questions about my views on this Gensokyo as well as questions about
the current story. I won't answer anything spoilerific, but I may also
not answer some questions 'cause I haven't thought of answers to them. So the lines are open folks, start asking away~
Perfect. Some of us think that the story needs to be momentarily paused
to give anon a break. So far the threads have been going to hell
because of people complaining about how everyone votes too quickly in
life threatening situations so I thought it would be a good idea to
lift the threat of imminent death once we reach the shrine. Group bath
Just for a while. Then we go back to the three stooges trying to gut us.
>>13476 Kashira, Kashira, I wonder I wonder.
>>13480 Shikeiki/Komachi route Yes, but not on the path you're currently
on. You'd have to meet them under different circumstances to be able to
spend any time around them. Flower field, There was a chance, But you
weren't there at the right time. If you had gotten there earlier, or
perhaps much later, You might have.
>>13482 Iunno what's with the LHC, we'll just have to see when they fire it up.
Also, yes, there's a chance for the school days world to show up.
You don't have a full party yet.
>>13486 Ran is likely doing whatever Yukari is directing her to do, but
Chen, who knows. She's probally listening to orders from Ran, but Ran
may not want to directly involve her in it. You'd have to ask Chen to
know for sure.
>>13488 By a rough estimate, It's actually about day 7~9, if not 11.
There's been times you've been in and out of consciousness, and most of
the chapter ends have had at least 12 hours between the next pickup.
You've been in Gensokyo longer than you've thought. Reisin's cute. But,
given the long lifespan of lunar rabbits, If she really is only in her
30's or 40's, then by human terms she's likely only a teenager, if not
younger, despite her advanced physical appearance. Also, CRAAAAAAAAAZY
EEEEYEEEEZ. Or something.
>>13495 So you're saying that Reisen is a teenaged rabbit.
A TEENAGED RABBIT.
Her libido must be almost fatal!
The camera, does it steal powers? Any hints as to why Reimu was hunting us in the first place, before we fucked her shit up.
What does Yukari stand to gain from all this? Why do we hallucinate
when ever we're even slightly hungry? Is Alice dedicated to Reimu's
cause or can she be turned? Or at least discouraged? Where does Marisa
stand in all this?
Who else is working for the red white?
>>13508 You've usually gone for longer than you've thought with out eating.
Ever thought how Reimu appears to the (9) squad? comes out of nowhere,
slaughters you, and doesn't afraid of anything. Same with Marisa. Reimu
is hunting you because you disturb the balance of Gensokyo in some way.
Yukari's gain is advancing her own ends. (I have no fucking clue. She
won't tell me a damn thing) Alice will tend to do whatever she thinks
is best. As such, Right now she seems to think that it's for the best
to be helping her friends. Not only to mention that you've piqued her
curiosity. >>13502 Suwako is a bit of a ditz. It's the hat you have to woory about. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.
>>13506 Yukari remembers a great deal of things that may or may not have
ever happened. She, much like ghosts, exist in a semi-different
physical state from the rest of us. They can interact with us, but they
aren't always bound by convnetional physics, and may remember things
from times that no longer exist.
>>13509 If you knew where to look, you could find just about anything in Gensokyo. The big problem is knowing where to look.
>>13526 Yes. She already forgave you, she really expected something like
that after fucking around with you so much and telling you nothing. >>13518 No, but I'll get right on that though. I hear it's pretty good money.
>>13535 It has a reusable flash, makes funny noises, is powered by SCIENCE! or magic.
MAGICAL SCIENCE. Iunno. Ask Nitori if you see her.
>>13487 There aren't individual character paths, perse, but more like a
general overaching story which may include close interaction with
various charcters of Gensokyo.
Are we ever going to get clarification from Rumia herself as to what
happened that time in Rinnosuke's store? He said it was an
hallucination but only Rumia was present for the entirety of our
>>13580 I dunno, that particular case seemed to be another example of
anon's mystery. Like being able to defeat Reimu in one on one combat
while tripping balls and yet getting our ass handed to us by Alice when
Actually that might me a point of consideration for later, get
Reisen to give us the ol' madness eyes and see if we regain our power.
>>13576 Basicaly, she ate the sammiches, you were not in your right mind,
and you freaked the FUCK out. You scared the ever loving shit out of
rumia, then cracked your head on the counter. She thought you died.
DIED. The only human to ever show her kindness, and you freak out,
scream at her then die. Wouldn't you be a little bit upset at that?
>>13577 It went to a pile of junk. Or were you asking what was under the junk, or on the other side of it?
>>13591 You weren't tripping balls the first time you met Reimu, second
time? She was weak as fuck from the poison from the first time the two
of you met. She thought she'd be over it in a day or so, and when it
lasted longer than she expected and was unable to treat it, she went to
Eientei for treatment.
Are we really in Lunatic Mode right now?
Back then when we first met Reimu, did she want to kill Wriggle?
Most of all, if we choose something else, would we have gone on
Reimus good side and would there be a chance for us to be Reimus bitch?
>>13606 lol, idunno. You guys didn't want to check again right away. So
anything's possible. Also, YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING. Jeeze. Wash your
goddamn plates for chrissake. *smile*
>>13610 lol, idunno. Can it bloom on the playground? >>13615 Let me put it this way. You were given PLENTY of chances to run
away from someone randomly screaming at you in the middle of the night.
>>13620 The other sisters. They were playing by themselves over there, and then they came over when Merlin was playing.
>>13618 It's in the job description, right above crushing despair, and just below killing off everything you hold dear. *grin*
>>13621 Eirin actually did treat her, given that she's not immortal and how
Reimu and crew are acting, Reimu would have likely killed Eirin had she
not been useful to Reimu at that time. That being said, Reimu's
probally back to about 1/3'rd to 1/2 power, and recovering.
>>13644 Planning with Reisen was probally the best option, next to trying
to locate Wriggle/Rumia. Charging back in headlong is silly and
dangerous. Reisen isn't an idiot, and she may or may not be under
orders from the Moon people to keep you safe, but I believe she was
honostly speaking from the heart. Barring finding Wriggle, I'd say make
some way to find her. Given that most of the insects in the area
probally know she's there, talk to any visible insects you may see and
ask them to find her for you. Beyond that, don't be so eager to off
yourself. Caution is the better part of valor, and while GAR may be
awesome, make sure you have the power to back up that GAR.
>>13661 Eientei supported you for thier own reasons. Kaguya aparently sees
supporting you as an investment, mostlikely in the future of Gensokyo.
My guess is that Yukari or Ran contacted her in some regard. To what
ends... well you'd have to ask Yukari that. I don't know that there's a
person alive who understands her thinking.
>>13658 No. Next question.
>>13655 Ah, I haven't actually played F/SN or watched the anime so uh... I don't know what "Acting like Shriou" is.
Can I suggest something? When we get a CONFIRM OPTION post, like we
did yesterday, rather than just roll back to the previous post can we
have a mini event happen? Like Reisen should've pulled us back or
shouted after us or some such.
>>13662 That depends on what Reimu does. She doesn't exactly like talking to me.
>>13666 I suck at writing them, unless you thought that the lead up to Yuyuko eating you could have gone somewhere nice.
You seem to think you have one allready (Bombs = spellcards ingame)
>>Reisin's cute. But, given the long
lifespan of lunar rabbits, If she really is only in her 30's or 40's,
then by human terms she's likely only a teenager, if not younger,
despite her advanced physical appearance. Also, CRAAAAAAAAAZY
>>13675 Anime? Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. First anime I ever saw,
at age 3. Loved the crap out of that video. (It was my aunt's) She gave
it to me for ah.. Birthday or christmas about 5~6 years back. (Yeah
yeah, crappy warriors of the wind BS, but still. I loved the crap out
Manga: Steam Detectives. FUCKYEASTEAMPUNK!>>13690 No. Next question.
>>13679 Nitori might, and if she does, there's nothing to keep Aya from being stickyfingered.
>>13687 Frozen Frog? FROZEN FROG? FROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG?!
>>13698 >I suck at writing them, unless you thought that the lead up to Yuyuko eating you could have gone somewhere nice.
Response to >>13670 >>13692 Sure, just find me a composer and I'll hammer out something for Anon. Also, Flying? Does out of a catapult count?
>>13688 What do you think?
>>13701 Ah, problems last night were due to lack of sleep causing me
problems. That and I was getting distracted frequently, so I wasn't
exactly thinking straight. Plus, a friend gave me that nifty OP
picture, and, well, I thought it'd be funny to fuck with you guys.
>>13668 >I don't know what "Acting like Shirou" is.
Shirou wants to be a superhero, his ideal is a world where
everyone can be "saved". He tries to help as many people as possible
without even considering his own life in the process.
So, in keeping with his character, you usually have to take the
most suicidal option when facing insanely powerful enemies (especially
when someone else is in immediate danger), and rely on his plot hax
(self-healing, unlimited blade works, etc) to constantly save his ass.
That's not to say things always work out okay, it ends up getting
pretty complicated. The conflict between his ideal and reality is
pretty much the primary theme in the story, so I won't try to explain
it all here.
tl;dr: Anon is acting suicidally heroic because FSN conditioned him to do so, apparently it'll take a while to unlearn that.
>>13740 if someone is in direct and immediate danger that is readily
aparent and directly in front of you, then I'd say Yes, acting like
Shirou would probally be a good thing. Otherwise, If it's happening
somewhere else, and you don't have any good information, well,
Information wins wars. Good misinformation has spelled the downfall of
>>13742 Ah, but note, this isn't a hard fast rule, set in stone. It's only
a suggestion. In the face of overwhelming odds, it's usually prudent to
regroup or play on the element of suprise. Like I said, information is
king. Gathering useful intel is almost always the best option, but
again, this isn't a hard fast rule.
>>13742 That definitely helps in making decisions. Based on that I probably
would have voted to surprise attack Marisa, as long as you could tell
she was right on the other side of the canvas. Although the
effectiveness of tackling someone who knows magic and can fly is
questionable, and the camera is a wild card.
>>13761 If the contents are, indeed, what the label claims to be. The seal
on the bottle has been broken, so it could have just been cracked open
in all of anon's running around, or there could be a different
substance in there all together, or someone could have already drank
>>13785 ... Is anon a clepto? I mean, things keep appearing in his
inventory, and I certainly don't remember pocketing any buttons. the
only person I can think of that we've been close enough to yank a
button off of was yuyuko maybe.
>>13833 heeeey thats right. does Reimu and the gang know Rumia was with us?
they probably do now, but that might have been a good way to stay under
cover. we could have stayed within the darkness and any patrols would
just have thought it was Rumia alone...
I think of MiG as Full Metal Panic, and WUiG as FMP: Fumoffu -- The
same basic starting elements, but the focus on the former is in the
action and plot, whereas the focus on the latter is in the wacky
adventures and mishaps and relationships.
According to Publication 52 Hazardous, restricted, & perishable
mail of the United States Postal Service, “Intoxicating liquors having
0.5 percent or more alcoholic content are nonmailable. This includes
taxable liquors with 3.2 percent or less alcohol, as well as those

If it makes you feel better, I was considering it.
You note her evasiveness to your question, but disregard it, and decide to answer.
"Oh man. there's no place I don't wanna go. I've always wanted to
go to places and see it all. Ever since my aunt gave me a copy of
Indiana Jones when I was 10." you answer somewhat boldly. "in
particular though, I wanna go through europe and russia. I'd like to go
through all of asia too."
>>14525 "The embarassing part is the other part. I don't want to do it
alone. I wanna find someone to go with me. I just haven't found that
person yet." You reply, then you take a sip of your tea. A MANLY sip.
Your sipping like the fist of the mother fucking north star. Pinky
extended like you were King Arthur taking tea with Guenevere in the
gardens of Camelot. A real cool guy, sips tea and doesn't afraid of
>>14536 Ouch. that wounds me, madam. Deeply, I assure you.
But in answer to your question, it is only a dream after all.
Dreams are made to be broken. I'll probably end up getting a motorcycle
at one point, but it will be a sad, fruitless attempt to live a
childhood dream. I'll probably cry.
