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! 
1) She seems to be stooping. There's a distinct curve to her back. Looks like if she was standing tall she'd be resting her head on Marigold's collarbone...

2) How funny an explanation is that?

I want that last panel as a background by the way. It's just the most adorable panel, especially what Momo said in it. Honestly cuteness overload there.

I'm surprised nobody has pointed out that both nosebleeds in this strip occurred when Marigold was touched more-than-casually by one of the robots.  Maybe there's another reason for them.  ;)

Has it already been remarked on how less-visible the new chassis' seams are than any of the other units in the store?  How easy would it be for Momo to pass for human?

Um...who can resist those boobs? :p
Perhaps an artificial intelligence which doesn't have the same human cultural and biological imperatives we have? It may interest you to know that breasts are not considered sexual in every culture around the world. I suppose AI are the product of the culture that gave rise to them, though. Certaily in this regard...

We know that AnthroPCs have libido... but I might have expected them to develop their own unique criteria about human female attractiveness. Just imagine the sheer potential for interesting exploration of that idea. I have no fixed ideas of what they might see as desirable in a human woman, but maybe their tastes would be somewhat more... functional. It is frequently argued that men desire that in women which is a signifier of fertility. Large breasts, wide hips, etc... AnthroPCs don't procreate with humans, so wouldn't they look for other things?

To make matters worse, it's actually referred to in front of patients as a "Rhino Rocket."
ER doctors are some of my favourite people, but they get a bit punchy after a while.

I was thinking... The way the fourth and fifth panels are ordered makes a difference. The way Jeph presents them, Momo's "saucer eye" trick represents love, devotion and gratitude (or a convincing programmed simulation, for the organicists :wink:). If the panels were swapped over, it could be a mind-control device...

Taking this to the logical extreme, let us also note that being touched by Pintsize did not produce the same response as today. The difference? Pintsize is male by inclination. You can say that AIs are neither male nor female, due to their interchangeable bodies, but it appears they do choose their role and ultimately become one with it. Momo has clearly become highly accustomed to her female role. She didn't look at any male or neuter bodies. Pintsize appears to have taken on a male role, although it occurs to me now that I cannot say why without reference  to outmoded stereotypes. After all, his body is neither one thing nor the other...

Anyway, if I can call Pintsize male... does that mean that when it comes to AI, Marigold has a thing for girls? We already know that with regards to flesh creatures she does not, but  a person's preference in robots and in humans might not be the same. If she'd only had such a reaction to Momo, I'd ask if this trope might apply...

Ahh, I'm just messing. I don't think any such things are really true.

I'm not as well equipped for this kind of discussion as I'd like, but I'm pretty sure you're touching on the difference between gender and sex there. Male gender, neuter sex if I have that right.

If I'm being serious I'm sure an AI's taste in such things would be as diverse as a human's, but perhaps with a different set of norms. Could even still be things with a functional subtext, but not from a procreative end. Just things that would signify a healthy and versatile body in general, rather than a body specialized towards procreation. So for example breasts of a size that wouldn't cause lower back problems or impede an athlete if I were to take a guess.

Of course the other possibility is that as you mention the norms would have more to do with their cultural upbringing than anything else anyway, in which case they would pretty closely match a human's preferences. For example the child rearing hips aren't actually considered to be the predominately desirable trait within north america, despite the fact that they should in theory be something we as humans prefer and seem to have been so historically and to be so in other cultures.

Oh, sorry... the BBCode here is slightly different than I'm used to. I've always put quote marks around the actual URL within the tags, but it doesn't work that way here apparently. Akima is of course correct. Note that I invoked the trope facetiously, I don't actually believe there's any such attraction regardless of how close the two may be.

Mr Hodges has kindly fixed the link before I got chance to. :)

Then again, she probably won't be able to afford new games for awhile  :lol:

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.
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)
Oh God damn it. I keep forgetting Marten uses an odd spelling.

Ohh, yes. That thing, where I once opened a picture link and then never again ever.

Maybe Pintsize does have 'different' tastes than most humans. Maybe when they installed his libido program they installed 20 instead of just the usual one or something.

Does the new hardware support that feature?  I don't think it'd be software...

Marigold sneaks off to play video games while Momo and the Pugnacious Peach duel over who gets to beat up Pintsize.

I realize that it's my being a woman that allows me to see how truly loathsome Faye is, but that nickname makes me want to gag.

Momo can now give Pintsize the beating that all the other girls do. Haha.

I have not noticed any division of views on Faye by gender, so I'm curious why you say that your gender feeds into your dislike.

So I just now realized why Momo's new chassis looks familiar. She's just a long-haired Fart-chan. Durf!

Well longer haired, completely different facial structure, taller, bigger bust, different coloured eyes, and dissimilar bone structures. But they're both white chicks with pink hair. I'll give you that.

I know I should disapprove of Momo's Roaring Rampage Of Robo-Revenge, but Pintsize so deserves it. I suppose it's a bit too one-sided for Battle Without Honor Or Humanity  to be playing in the background...

Bone?

Oh, I'm not saying women in general would hate her, but if someone was able to see how disgusting she is, it would most likely be a woman (and that someone is me)...and maybe a few super super enlightened men, the sort of which only seem to exist in my imagination.

Yes...Momo had her eye on Sven, if I recall. She was fantasizing about him...lol. What's weird is that in the fantasy she looked sort of like she does now, except maybe a bit more glammed up.

Well, it's no $30,000 PX-3500. She isn't taking out a loan for this, so... $7,500 - 9,000? Though now it kind of makes me wonder what's so great about that other chassis.

For starters, several litres of life-blood.

Momo 1.0 looks like the Chibi Version of Momo 2.0.

Those twin particle-beam projectors, for starters. Momo's new chassis seems to be restricted to punching and robo-noogies. Unless she's holding back. Maybe there's some sort of AnthroPC code of ethics that prevents use of the Electric Shock Field against other AnthroPCs. Asimovian? If you want.

Maybe that's why the chassis was nosebleed-inducingly expensive. Better covering, so to speak.

Jeph stepping it up with the GIFs - four frames now! Also, looks like he's done something to minimise the difference between browsers - where Hannelore's twitching leg was Tool-like in Firefox and like a slow metronome in IE/iOS, this strip I've found to be more consistent across platforms.

Ain't it though?

Heck, a solid five to nine hundred dollars would be enough to get that reaction from me. If Marigold's lifestyle resembles my own it's not as bold a statement as it sounds. Not like I've never reduced the food budget to next to nothing for a game console or anything.

Depends how long we think she's gonna be on the Ramen diet for though. Weeks, months, or year(s)? I personally don't think she's gonna be ramen exclusive for more than two months.

Good question about the other chassis too. I'd expect at least Olympian level physical abilities, some manner of weaponized self defense system, lots of extra ports, ridiculous durability and the ability to transform.

I really do prefer a robot with some visible joints. It's momo's chassis though, and evidently she was looking for something a little more seamless. Not to my tastes, but whatever.
