We have had a number of threads started recently by people who didn't realise what WCDT stood for, and so didn't know to use that thread to comment on the day's comic.  I propose that we change the weekly thread title to be simpler and more obvious, as I have done to this thread.

Anyhew, this week....let's hope the "special files" get fixed on Momo. This new chassis looks promising.

That said, I voted for the Happy Toaster option. Because.

We could just go with "Weekly Comics Discussion 2001-2005 (29 Aug-2 Sept 2011)".  Just sayin'.

Well an alternative would be a "Comic Discussion" subforum specifically for the WDCTs. (One forum for discussing the comic is bad enough as it is... :psyduck:)

Or maybe just a locked sticky at the top entitled "'WCDT' MEANS 'WEEKLY COMIC DISCUSSION TALK', YOU BUTTS!"?

e: Actually it should be ""WCDT' MEANS 'WEEKLY COMIC DISCUSSION THREAD', YOU BUTTS!", but I kind of screwed up this post like the redundancy.

If you had an AnthroPC, would you prefer one of the small chassis, or a humanoid one?

I'd prefer a small one, for the portability and convenience.

EDIT: Will the other AnthroPCs in the strip get jealous and want chassis upgrades for themselves?

I wonder if Mr. Jacques is thinking of a T-shirt featuring the Happy Humidifier and the Little Bread Dude.... I'd buy one.

I hope Momo gets new clothes, though.

As a side note, pardon me if it's been covered recently, but how long has it been since Hanners got the first prototype from her father?  Technology must move FAST in the QC-world, if empty human-scale chassis are at retail.

In the painful coincidences department, I spent part of the day preceding comic 2001 in an emergency room because a loved had an unstoppable nosebleed. Discussing as we were in last week's thread the differences in technological progress in the QCverse vs. Ours, I hope doctors in the QCverse have something better than the little torture device my loved one must, according to the ER doc, wear up her nose for the next few days. To make matters worse, it's actually referred to in front of patients as a "Rhino Rocket."
And if the QCverse has such an improvement, I hope Hsu the Punching Intern invented it. He seemed like a sympathetic guy.

I suggest Marigold augment her Ramen with other items. For example, I fill out the survey thingy for Panda express and get the Mandarin Chicken side for free. Throw that into the pot of ramen, and it provides something other than bland noodles and some Salt-laced soup broth.

Also, would Momo's new body be consider Loli?

your all missing the important question here: does her new chassis shoot live eels like her old one? because with her new and larger pelvis she could probably move up to a larger species of eel, while still gaining a higher magazine capacity due to her larger abdomen.

If nobody else is going to ask, I have to... why the nosebleeds? I've never known anyone to get a nosebleed from sticker shock. Boys in Japanese anime get nosebleeds when they become sexually aroused, but I doubt that is the issue here. Also... lets say it was sticker shock, then why another nosebleed when Momo starts hugging her? Also... note the position of Momo's head, do all AI's in this world just love the feel of breasts? So far we've had "It wath worth it" and creepy autonomous hand, this is turning into a trend.

Moving on, ah yes..."Snrkt". The distant cousin to "Snikt". Although, why did Marigold get a nosebleed when told of the price? I mean, I'd make the same noise and facial expression as Marigold if I was in her place, but not burst a blood vessel. Now, Momo's hug at the end, I could sorta understand that as Momo is now a bit stronger than before and therefore needs to hold back.

That said, now we have two paths to go from here. Path one is Momo's reveal to the other AnthroPCs. Path two is Momo's reveal to the other human characters. Methinks Angus and maybe Faye will be first of the second group to see the new Momo.

I do agree though that she needs new clothes. This generic chassis outfit just won't cut it.

Oh, and that last panel is the cutest thing. Well the Momo part, the nosebleed is eww.

I love the new Momo, she's just sooo adorable. She's shorter then it seemed in the last comic though, that caught me by surprise.

Surprised me too, but it's because in the previous strip she was sitting on the counter and so seemed taller.

Y'know, once Momo gets her permanent outfit Jeph needs to like make a wallpaper or big art of her. I'd love to have Momo on my desktop.

Worried about Marigold's nosebleeds... : (

Happened before.  In manga, a nosebleed indicates sexual arousal; I hope Jeph is not intending that convention to apply here...

At least it was unintentional.  



It was, wasn't it?  



About the nosebleed; I suffered from them when I had forced air heat (my current home has radiators, thank god).  The first nosebleed is probably the resuklt of the snort she made upon hearing the price, not from shock at the price itself.  The second was probably just the first one reopened by the shock of getting jostled by a larger, more enthusiastic Momo.  

And with a schnoz the size of Marigold's, a nosebleed can be quite the gusher!

If you had an AnthroPC, would you prefer one of the small chassis, or a humanoid one?

Small - I dare say a lifesized one would be more threatening in some ways. 

Life-size anthroPCs could also seriously change the dynamic in the strip; though I suppose they don't have to (thinks back to reading C-A-D a long time ago, for example)

In regards to CAD, I'm pretty sure Zeke (and the short lived clone) is the only AI in that universe.

Momo-tan has officially transformed into a Chobit.

She's now going to end up in a relationship with Martin and start calling everything Martin all the time.

Check the strip before that. She had a nosebleed because she did a face-plant fleeing an awkward situation. Of course, the Magical Love Gentleman scene is caused by arousal, but that was aided by the fact that it was already bleeding anyway.

This nosebleed is caused by the same thing as the stereotypical manga/anime nosebleed in that they are both caused by skyrocketting blood pressure. In the case of anime/manga, that is implied to be due to sexual arousal. In this case, it's caused by stress over the idea of paying such a huge price for Momo's new chassis.

Another new character? There are dozens already!
Still, at least this one ought to help the male:female ratio move toward the global average.
Maybe he can be a friend for Marten. Or would the similarity of their names cause confusion? (Faye would probably call him Tin-Tin to avoid this)

Also... note the position of Momo's head, do all AI's in this world just love the feel of breasts? So far we've had "It wath worth it" and creepy autonomous hand, this is turning into a trend.

She's shorter than Marigold.  Not much choice! 


Um...who can resist those boobs? :p


Okay, I'm going to stop now.
