K. But quickly,
Let's all attempt to be civil, if mud flinging does occur, lets rock out Cold War style so I can post "i see what you did thar" memes.
That is all on that note, let us continue.
In my position, I'm not ruling out the idea that it is a romantic relationship. Merely presenting an alternate idea to this. I do also want to point out that I am jaded in this a bit. So some blindness could have been present from a different belief structure.
Also, keep this in mind, there are a lot of these ideas that can be taken either way because we don't know. What I am doing with this is analyzing present information and behavior given from both the comic and TV shows to attempt to predict a pathway of most likely events.
askura wrote:Yes, it is entirely possible and very likely that Mimi and Chi know only each other when it comes to girls their age. But we can't say that with 100% certainty for either of them. Him is willing to let Mimi visit Chi, so why not other girls?
For either, no, but for Mimi and through a series of thoughts, we can infer Chi's status as well. Let's start with the Mimi side.
In this idea, Mimi is over excited to finally be with someone her age and allowed to hang out with them. From the comic we have seen and been told that most of her childhood has been spent being shuffled around, being kept out of danger, and hooked up to Nephilim. It appears that Mimi has been cooped up and over protected most of her life. I don't think she has been with kids her age in a way she can play and interact with them. We never see any mention of it either. Yes, I am aware that we haven't seen much of Mimi childhood, but we have seen a few major turning points in her life. Could there be other kids, perhaps the children of Bubbles and Buttercup that she has been with? Possibly, but we have no idea either. Once Him got a hold of Mimi, it doesn't seem as if she was able to have a lot of freedom or interactions either.
Now for Chi. Daughter of Aku, I am sure that he spoils her and is over protective of her at the same time. I don't think she has left the City of Aku or at least that realm. It would seem like she stays there, why would she leave? She has everything. The only time she pays attention to people coming and going is when Him and Mimi show up.
I don't think either of the girls have ever met the other Underworld Girls. We could suppose that Mimi met Marceline, but at the same time you could suppose that she didn't or hasn't yet. I would guess that the reason that these two know each other is that their Dads have some sort of alliance between each other and the other realms don't really have that. Minnie for example was home schooled by Olga. Mimi, I don't think she was getting any public schooling, and Chi could have had a private tutor as well. the difficult is that you don't know anymore than I do on this status involving the total underworld relationships between the Kingdoms, other than Mandy is a bitch. So it is as accurate for you to clam that they did, as it is for me to clam that they have not, thus rendering this point useless.
askura wrote:And even if they did know only each other, wouldn't that lend more to the idea that they would have a deeper relationship than "just friends"? If you had one friend, and never saw anyone else, and you were a demon, and just starting to "mature" and get interest in sexual stuff, do you think you'd probably start "getting ideas" about your friend who is the same age as you and in the same boat and is the only person you know that isn't your dad or your babysitter?
Was I dismissing that? Of course not. We've seen evidence of that ideology from Chi already. But are both experiencing that? Hmm. Are they both blind, and without knowledge, Mimi at least, I don't think so. I think she has been exposed to all of the horrors of the world.
I'm trying to remember what Griddles had on this. He spoke on this topic, well similar to it, years ago when we were trying to figure out if the Ghost kids came from Mimi. Alas, the disappointment that was felt across the forums when we found out that it was Mandy. Anyway... there was something interesting like she had to or did experience all of the evil that mankind had to offer. Ashe suffered spiritually, mentally, and physically. Somehow that tied into Mimi being unable to produce any children... Long ass time ago, like three maybe four years ago when we started to see the AfterBirth sketches with the Ghost Kids on them.
Then some mother fucker, who shall remain nameless, leaked that all over the internet.
askura wrote:Bleedman, as far as I know, in both of his fancomics, likes to drop big hints about who the couples are in his stories. He is doing the same thing here, and I don't know if people are just ignoring it because they don't want to acknowledge it because Mimi and Chi are both girls, or what.
It isn't being ignored, its being interpreted differently. Just because someone arrives at a different conclusion doesn't give you the right to insinuate or to assume that they are ignorant or biased. The same thing happens whenever the Mimi x Jr thing comes up. Why? Well there is one side that sees no problem with it, and another that morally believes that even half sibling incest is wrong.
askura wrote:This pairing has been hinted at from Chi's introduction page and just gets less subtle with every new page. I'm expecting that this will either continue until Chi and Mimi kiss
Which is when the idea of it being a romantic relationship is solidified and the idea that they are good friends can be dismissed. But just because it hasn't yet, and that both still stand strong accounting to supporting evidence, you can't dismiss one or the other.
I've discovered that I have a really scientific outlook to this comic, and to most things in life. Perhaps even a philosophical one as well. But for me, I don't like to dismiss things until they become too unlikely or something comes out and says no. Like the idea that Raven was Mimi's mother. That was held on for the longest time and had a considerable amount of support, comic evidence, and reasoning that supported it until the comic blew that one away. Of course, I and many others fully supported that idea because it made sense at the time and worked while the Blossom one made no sense, and all that we had for that was... I don't think we had anything... eye color, maybe...
But back to the point, it will continue and the two ideas will continue to co-exist until proven otherwise by the influx of more specific information or the blatant destruction of it in the comic.
askura wrote:It could be that she's possessive of someone who's just her friend, but after everything else on this page and the one before, I really doubt it. She's spewing stereotypical "jealous lover" talk. It's like Chi memorized the tvtropes article on yandere.
Possessive, crazy, I dunno. I have a cousin who acts in a similar way and I know damn well she isn't lesbian. The pages you presented would be what I would consider the "core" of the relationship theory. Not against it. Those who know me... well, lets just leave it there because should I have continued that train of thought, annoying questions would be asked and contradictions be made. I'd do Mimi, girl or not. It's hot, lets leave it at that.
askura wrote:Mimi does not even show Jeff this kind of affection.
Jeff is her babysitter, not a girl her age.
askura wrote:Never once has Mimi wagged her tail at seeing someone.
Who would she do that to?
askura wrote:She doesn't even let Chi finish her sentence before pouncing on her. She's that excited.
the question I have is if this is their first meeting or what. I was taking this as a reference to a flashback for when the two first met in a person-to-person setting. Considering it as a "more than the first time" encounter, then I see where you are coming from a lot more now.
askura wrote:I know people have used the argument of "Mimi shows her feelings in a ~special~ way" to twist the comic and explain how Mimi "likes" Junior because she constantly causes him physical pain.
I haven't heard that one before.
@ askura: I see where you are coming from and the idea. I'm not against it, I'm not for it, I'm me. If it happens, cool. Just means my PM box is going to get filled with Mimi x Chi hentai commissions from people who think I'd like to see it. That's not fine, btw guys. I'm waving the white flag on continuing this because I want to stop typing.
I like posts like this and when conversation developed like this because when two or more people who can reason things come together, they can bring different view points and more ideas together. I haven't done this in a long time, so thank you for being here and showing a different point of vewi to me that makes sense.
I don't yet yield to either side nor support one over the other. I want the careful consideration of all the angles that this could take instead of rolling with just one. There is more fun and pass experience with these comics have taught me not to embrace one and cast off all of them. The raven mom thing being an example.

Clearly you didn't catch my sarcasm either. Read what I post and imagine House saying it.
Sigment Kurosai wrote:Chi was so eager to ready herself for Him's arrival is simple: She thinks Mimi is with Him. She may just be eager to see her, or maybe she wants to ask why she hasn't been hearing from her. Either way, Chi will be very shocked, not to mention angry, when she finds out Mimi's current situation.
Yes. I think that is about to happen, and I think that is what him is planning on. I also think Him isn't going to go in there and tell Chi and Aku that he "lost" Mimi or that she got captured while breaking into someone else's castle. I think he is going to lie and clam an attack or something.
