I wonder if Mimi's interest in Chi is as a fangirl? I mean, being a singer is an unobtainable goal for Mimi, since she is mute. You know what i mean? Like, the fact that she could never do it makes Chi seem more impressive, or something along those lines. Who wouldn't want to bang their idol? Then in a strange twist Chi ended up falling for Mimi, instead of the other way around. I don't think Blossom has anything to do with it since I believe they have had sex. I mean, Blossom COULD have something to do with it, maybe Mimi has a mother complex.

Welcome to the forums Lhines. Blossom certainly has to do something with it as seen in the page "Chi's a weeaboo" Chi gets a flashback of Mimi killing Blossom and Chi sees that from Blossom's perspective. And I don't think they had sex, I know Bleed is a perv but I don't think he would let the girls have sex. And NEK writes the story, and I don't he is such a perv like Bleed.

Possible.

Technically, this comic doesn't say a lot of fucking things we already accept as truth.

He sure isn't doing anything to suppress the creepiness. Thus you could reasonably assume that both are creepy. Wouldn't be the first time he got someone that agreed with his tastes.

Thanks :grin:
I suppose, gotta feel bad for Chi though, can't get shut down harder than "you remind me of my mom" what makes it worse is that since Mimi can't talk Chi will either have to hear it from someone else or over text message.

Mimi can talk, to an extent. Mimi also prefers to communicate telepathically, I believe.
The reason for why Mimi likes Chi is still up in the air. Resembling Blossom is just the popular theory, that I also agree with.
It's likely that Mimi would tell Chi telepathically, but it seems Chi is still in the dark about that piece of information.

Rather than concrete thoughts, it could be a push of her thoughts that help people understand her. Such as her interactions with Raven.

No problem at all, always good to see enthusiastic new members, even though I'm still relatively new. c:

Ah no.
Flashbacks in this comic are beginning to strike me as a tad bit gratuitous. This totally takes the cake, though.
I have a feeling that this COULD possibly be the first or one of the first times Chi and Mimi met, considering how starry eyed Mimi is, as though she's never seen Chi before. Not to mention that Jeff seems confused as to why Mimi decided to go the concert at all. If this wasn't the first time they'd met, then I think Jeff would ask no questions, knowing that Mimi went for the sake of Chi. (Of course that all depends on whether or not Jeff is aware of Chi's relationship with Mimi. I'm not too sure if he is.)
And that's it. That's all I've got. See you next page.

If I'm correct then it was mentioned either in Further Orientation or in the flashback of What About Mimi? about her telepathic communication. But I'm not sure.

However I think it is funny that some people are complaining about Chi getting too much attention now, because a few people also did that when Mimi's File of GTFO began because she just got a chapter about her. Honestly I also hope this chapter isn't going to be all flashback and revolve around Chi and Mimi. I really want to see the council meeting, what Minnie is going to do, and what Junior is going to do with Mimi

I think there are a total of three Rules of Writing possibly being broken in this comic:
1. Try not to create multiple characters whose names start with the same letter, because it can get confusing.
1B (sort of a corollary). Create a minimal cast to minimize confusion.
2. Start the narrative as close to the initial sequence of action as possible to maximize interest.
3. If you must use flashbacks, keep them to a minimum and stack them near the beginning to avoid interrupting the flow later on. Focus, instead, on the current narrative.

These are from The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing, if you'd like to look it up. Of course, there are no hard-and-fast rules for writing successful pieces, and everyone writes differently anyway. Minimal cast? Negima has over 120 named and unnamed characters, and it's one of my favourite series.

But anyway, so many flashbacks. Are NEK and Bleedman stalling for time, perhaps?

This could easily be one of the earlier times these two have 'met,' again considering Jeff's confusion (it's also important that this indicates that Mimi usually likes to keep to herself instead of being social, especially given the demon crowd at her birthday party). Given that they've left HIM's corner of the Underworld for Aku City, Jeff should have known that Chi was playing that night, and if Mimi and Chi were well-acquainted, he would have at least looked it up. In the meantime, we can see that Mimi is at least a fan.

On the subject of telepathic communication, I don't remember Mimi using it. She only pointed to Raven's chakra gem or stared at something.

What annoys some members is that we're unsure. We're basically in the dark about that.

Xi-1 wrote:On the subject of telepathic communication, I don't remember Mimi using it. She only pointed to Raven's chakra gem or stared at something.

I believe it's not direct telepathy. She pushes her thoughts. That way people have a better way of understanding her, not direct communication.


@MadDoc
I can't find the character sheet :c
I just remember people mentioning it. It was older and lost somewhere in the years of archived threads.

to the one with the chi is blossom theory i totally see it! it would explain why Mimi has such a connection with her and why chi cares for her so much. could be a deep maternal feeling. and also i like the chi-mimi stories i think they are really interesting.

That's the actually the prime theory going around, the one that everyone thinks is most likely. I think I was the one who came up with this idea, but it's been so long I don't remember. Oh, and welcome to the forums. :)

I'm glad you're excited, because I and the majority of everyone here don't give a shit about any of this.

Now don't scare her off. c:

I remember Blood first posting about it in the predictions thread. The idea slowly evolved to many slight variants.

@dalek
Also, the abundance of Chi lately has many members on edge. Many of us dislike the restatement of Chi's attitude towards various topics.

I'm...eh, on this page. Really, the biggest problem I have is that if this flashback takes up a hefty amount of pages, it's going to really interrupt the flow of everything else. You set up a lot of really intriguing plot points, with the Underworld Council, the new attitude of Minnie, Chi's potential infiltration of Castle Grimm, and of course the Mimi/Junior relationship, whatever that may be. But the art is at least pretty good on this page, and I sorta like Mimi fangirling over Chi. She doesn't show a ton of what I would consider "positive" emotion a lot, so to see it is really nice.

Hopefully this flashback only takes up 4 or 5 pages of the chapter, but I have a feeling it's going to be more unfortunately. As long as it doesn't take up like 4 months I'll be fine.

On that note, I'm not sure if they'll make something up, or put up lyrics to an actual song. This is, of course, assuming that they actually show her sing. Something I don't care for and would call a waste of a page if they did it.

It was. Each character had a CS sheet done that was posted on the main page of the site - a sort of quick link button. The sheet had a image of the character and a brief description about them. Either a good paragraph, a sentence, or just the incomplete status.

Mimi's stated that she was the daughter of Him and used a high version of telepathy that not only conveyed the words she was saying, but also a understanding of emotions so it was impossible to misunderstand what she was meaning. Nergal Jr's, for example, stated that he was the former Captain of Mandy's Guard.

For thus, we cannot. For when the site went though a update after I joined and we got the News Section, we also lost these character sheets.

They did exist though, I can promise you that as there are members here older than myself who discussed the comics and would surely remember them as well. How much of them are still being used, I cannot say either.

Hey Blord, just a thought. Do you think it's possible to retrieve these character by using Internet Archive.org?

The most I could see them doing is either linking a YouTube video, or just adding lyrics in the comic and enclosing them with little music notes. Chi also being able to sing doesn't help with my "she's prefect and therefore uninteresting as a character" perspective of her.

Don't worry. You don't have to be perfect with your punctuation. Also I'm glad we can come to an understanding about Chi. :)
But just a heads up, a lot of people here either don't like Chi, or completely despise her.
