Miho's Good End by fredrin Miho's Good End by fredrin
A commission idea to show what Miho having a Good End might be like, showing her contented, happy perhaps... ran with the idea (carefully, mind you, so as to not spoil things) but still had a lot of fun entering details. I mean, seriously - a comfy chair, a good book, a warm kitty, and someone to bring you a coffee - that's a good end, no? Note that i deliberately have left it rather vague about who she is looking at - is this someone who is part of her good end, or is it just someone at the cafe/bookshop/catcuddleshop bringing her a fresh cup? I won't say.

I really enjoy the expressions that you give the characters in your art. I'll be looking out for your new pieces! :)

Just caught up to comic 1449 and I immediately thought of Piro bringing her the coffee based on the emotional twists and turns the story has been going toward. I would feel bad for Nanasawa if Piro and Miho ended up together, but she's a very resilient girl and the quality of her character says to me that she would step aside if these two really were meant for each other. She would go on to find someone who cares about her as much, but with much less ex baggage.

However, just as I thought Piro x Miho was right, it struck me as being too easy. Miho is such a tough character to know and she hints at tremendous pain beneath her "character" façade. I don't believe this scene would be as carefree as it would lead you to believe without some serious resolving action.

Possible story outcomes: Piro dies saving Miho and she is remembering him in the coffee shop after finding his backpack, feeling wistful reading his writings / Piro doesn't die saving her, but instead he forgets certain bits of his past(Miho) and ends up working at a bookstore. Of course, Miho visits often, savoring her time with him.


Also, there is the possibility that I am WAY overthinking this. ;) Love the art Fred!

Yay for catcuddleshops! I could go for one of those. Granted,  I'd probably need plenty of loratadine (or maybe even hypoallergenic cats) to spend much time in one, but it's a delightful concept, nonetheless. :D

That's one very relaxed Miho, and it certainly does look comfy and slightly home-like :)

Fred, I'd pay decent money for a signed print of this if it were in the shop. :)

I love this artwork! I'd like to think that it's Piro's hand. I really think that they belong together - their chemistry is very compelling and makes the story quite fascinating and touching.
I have nothing against Kimiko, but I think that Piro and Miho are meant to be.
Of course, whatever the direction the story will take, I will continue reading it.

its definitively not at home, maybe one of those Japanese cafes where you can have coffee and read while hanging with kitties. Note the open sign on the window And if im correct it looks like piros bag is on the ground barely exposing his sketch book. It could just be a look alike bag and maybe just a journal but I think its piros. I love your art and have been a fan since I discovered the treasure of megatokyo in a thrift store. I found your comic books, decided it might be good enough to read and Im amazed of the realistic and the fantasy elements found in the story that make Japanese culture the gem that it is. Thank you and I hope that we can see a megatokyo anime in the future if possible. I cant wait. I Wanna play this game.

I sure hope it's Piro. After all the two of them have been though it would be a shame if they didn't get together.
But if not, I'll still be reading.
I hope all goes well with the procedure, we are all praying for you.
Take care and get better.

I think it's both. Someone part of her good end, who also happens to work at the books-coffee-and-cats-store. She's a regular, they have a semi-flirty thing going, and they're working up the nerve to ask her out.

For a moment, I imagined that it was an enslaved Largo bringing her coffee, instead of Piro. It was kinda funny.

"Catcuddleshop". That's either a terrible idea or the greatest one ever.

I used to live near a no-kill cat shelter. It was about as close to a catcuddleshop as I've ever been. :) Sit down and get surrounded by five loving kitties.
