Looks like Mochi’s tongue could come in quite handy! It can stretch as long as 100 meters and lift over 300 kilograms in weight!
Have you ever eaten Japanese mochi? It’s very squishy and stretchy!
Mint is so adorible
Haha, cute nickname. I always refer to her as Peppers.
Dibs on ‘peppy’.
Unfortunately, whenever I hear the name Mint, I always think of this Mint:
I don’t think Peppermint is quite that selfish…
That bikini is blowing my mind right now.
Does this mean Mochi’s a shifter?
Nice work on beach Daifuku <3
Seems that Mochi’s actually attached to Daifuku no matter what clothes she’s wearing. That bikini looks nice (as well as the hair), but I can’t wait for the inevitable shower scene with her and Mochi…and whoever walks in on her.
Mochi’s mouth never moves, but can be covered up. His eyes can adapt to any piece of clothing though, but do not appear on Daifuku’s boobs.
thanks for that explanation! I was wondering.
Heh, stretchy rice starch power. Nice.
So if Daifuku wears a full shirt it functions as a ninja mask for Mochi.
Ok, that armor can be nice sometimes.
Armor?! It’s a skimpy bikini and hotpants!
Really when you think about it that’s more than what some “true” warriors wear in cartoons/anime.
lol. its funny because its true. (in some cases)
Fuck being a demon, he can rent himself out as a bungee cord
What’s coming up, James?
What’s coming up? Um, as soon as I start drawing next week’s comic I’ll know, aha.
Mochi looks like he’s wearing glasses there. Those librarian-type glasses
Haha, cannot unsee.
I guess neither can he now he has perfect vision BA DUM TSSH.
…(grumble grumble) you keep trying to make my inner Guy ‘splode dontcha DX
On another note I love the interaction ‘tween Mint-hime and Fuku-Chi (short for Daifuku & Mochi) Yet another use for dat toung…Is the damn thing colored duck tape or something? There seems to be nothing that it can nay do. On a side note I do miss your old pic Jkun-sama. I like this new one but still………………T_T
Ahaha I guess BRIGHT RED against blue did stand out, but I wanted something a bit more recent that coincides with my Twitter/DA account.
Nicknames will be whatever they are, but based on the nickname pattern used in “Runner Kuromi”, “Fukumo” might be more likely. Although if Mochi insisted on being first (not unlikely) it could be “Chidaifu”.
Which part of the world is this beach located in?
Eastern Estuary near the docks! You can’t see it on the world map though!
awsome sensei. you don’t disappoint. i love daifukus outfi. and that is defiantly one use of the tongue i did not imagine. can we expect more tongue uses in the future sensei?
it seems peppers is adorable in any outfit.
All that sensei-ness, you flatter me!
Pepper’s outfit is the same as a Japanese school swimsuit (School Mizugi) but just recolored (the usual colour is a navy!)
Yes, more tongue action for sure!
@ Yes, more tongue action for sure!: http://instantrimshot.com/
i for see lots of future inuendo.
2nd and 4th peppers is a cutie patootie,and Daifuku with long hair yes…yes..<3,and I never would have thought about bungie jumping with mochi,that's very creative.
Peppermint was testing how far it could stretch. You know, for science.
Fun science. I’m willing to bet Peppers is a funologist (also maybe an ophthalmologist based on her inventions).
1.So there’s a Big Ass Cliff/Bridge/Steel Frame Tower/ Life Guard Tower/Life House/ Floating Platform with Bungee Platform in the Middle of the Beach (Actually 4/5 of those make sense.)
2.I want to make a Perverse Comment about Mochi 100 meter tongue but, Peppermint the one wrap around it so I won’t. (Plus I don’t want to be label as Pedophile nor a Lolicon.)
3.Peppermint is Mizugi is adorable. While Daifuku’s Bikini top and Hot pants is Freakishly Hot as Hell, Translated in Meme Terms: ( I have the weirdest Boner right now.) (º¬°)
The bridge runs from the metropolis, situated next to the estuary. You can see part of it (the motorway) on the World Map.
Ohhhh… I can’t seem to find it on the world Map, I think found it but, lost track if it like 40.2 seconds later.
I’ve never eaten real Japanese Mochi (having never been there), but I make my own, and if his tongue is anything like it, Peppermint is lucky to not still be stuck to it!
You should totally make a mochi that looks like Mochi’s face, with the tongue out, then take pics! That is some A+ fan art right there!
This page is ridiculously cute – seeing Peppermint IMMEDIATELY having fun with Daifuku is wonderful.
Even with Mochi raging quietly at the horrible misuse of his tongue, this page is cute.
Methinks that the demon in her belly should be complaining more.
Mochi: Thas wha tha was fow? (Try saying “That’s what that was for?” without moving your tongue) I nearla get ma tongue rit outta my mouf foe wha? A bungee junt? You are so going to pay for that!
My guess currently is bribery on Peppers’ part. Also Mochi is a little tongue-tied at the moment to be complaining. Peppermint better hope he’s not in the mood to give her a tongue lashing.
Nah, Mochi is just a master of not giving a fuck unless it’s got to do with swords or is given the chance at a nasty retort, unlike Lacie who goes out of her way to be an asshole. You have to remember he is very, very old and has had a previous “host”, so a lot of things like people playing with his tongue doesn’t phase him.
Other example of 4th panel, after pepper’s launched back up, we see daifukus shocked expression as we see only peppermint’s feet sticking out of Mochi
Then again Mochi probably agreed because he gets to throw small girls off bridges
Haha, I was gonna use something similar in the 4th panel but wanted it to be a nice, cute ending.
Mochi thoughts after Bungee Jumping with Peppermint: Hmmm… actually taste like Peppermint with a slight hint of Confusion, a dash of Worry, a pinch of Doubt, High in Happiness, Literally Saturated to the Bone with Adorableness, and Fuckton of Fun. A tad to Sweet if you ask me. I give it ★★★★☆/★★★★★.
This actually brings up a good question: can Mochi taste the emotions of others?
Nope his tongue works like any normal tongue.
As for his food, do you know the Japanese phrase 別腹 (Betsubara)? It means “Separate stomach”, and while Japanese people, like all of us, only have one stomach, they like to joke around saying they have a separate stomach for desserts after a big meal to express that they can still eat a little more.
Mochi is Daifuku’s betsubara, in addition to “feeding” or absorbing her emotions.
Here’s a another question about does the Blacken part of the tongue severe any purpose? Beside the powers to lift 1 Siberian Tiger, stretching 100 meters.
Uh, two reasons!
1) Character design. It’s a nice contrast since a lot of Daifuku’s gear is already pink, which makes it stand out a lot better as it is quite a prominent feature.
2) It also symbolizes the fact that Daifuku’s belly has been “tainted” with Mochi and it is not a normal tongue, just like how she isn’t a normal human.
Huh, two responses
1) Your eye for Character design is quite amazing.
2) Hm, Hmm, I see, that is quite interesting.
Strangely enough that long tongue would actually useful with Daifuku Ninjutsu, like using it like grappling Hook to sneak around to higher place, and knock out guards at a distance.
Excellent question Blue_Elite.
Actually all those emotions listed in Mochi afterthoughts are still Daifuku’s, which Mochi mentally taste judging after the apparently Pepperminted flavor of scientist, Peppermint research to see if Mochi’s tongue is in Mint Condition using the science of FUNology.
I’m sorta surprised that Peppermint didn’t get eated XD
Humans taste gross, apparently!
he just doesn’t know how to cook them right.
You know, I’m suprised that Candy didn’t try to rip out Mochi’s tongue for putting Peppermint in danger.
Candy is probably too busy teaching Lacie that urine is not a good treatment for jellyfish stings. Or looking away in disgust (but still listening with delight) while Shelbie does that instead.
This is something Peppermint wants to do though. If Candy got mad at Daifuku, then Peppermint would get all upset that she can’t continue with her “research”.
Huh, that seashell looks like a skull. A skullshell maybe?
What’s the matter Mochi? Peppermint got your tongue?
Uh, nah it’s just a shell.
I suck at drawing shells.
You know, I just had a funny idea if Peppermint had other parents:
Frank from Two Guy and Guy
GlaDOs from Portal
I don’t think Frank, or GLaDOS for that matter are the baby making type!
Peppermint + Frank would be a dangerous geniuses duo! But I think it would a clash, not a alliance ^^’
I’m surprised mochi agreed to this
This scene reminds me of the “I will do science to it” meme started by Dresden Codak (aka, Aaron Diaz) when he drew a young Kimiko Ross holding a cookie.
Hahaha, I looove Dresden Codak’s stuff!
Daifuku and Mochi are helping Peppermint research fun…FOR SCIENCE!!! *trumpets play*
What if got attached to Lacie…we’re all doomed(not us but the gang)
I wouldn’t like to think of THOSE consequences!
Well, your character lolpup, or whatever appear in a comic?
No, because it isn’t my character. It belongs to Square Enix.
Do you have an author avatar yet out of curiosity?
What’s that? You mean on TvTropes?
Oh Peppers, why are you so super duper adorabel? <3
P.S. For science, errm, fun! XD
Maybe science made her adorable! Or maybe it came naturally. Wait, aren’t they kinda the same thing…?
Honestly, what can’t Peppermint use science for?
So is the that girl with the evil corset a new character? wooho
DANM! peppermint know she is wrong for that. look at how she is playing with her emotions.
