BACK TO LIL'E, TANGE AND THE PLOT.

YESSSS

I am kind of wondering how Lil'E knows she'll be at the headquarters though? Was this an actual fact that I missed or did they just decide it?

Also if you look at the first panel, I cannot see anywhere where what he's pointing to in the last panel would fit.

"tho"?

Is she pronouncing that like someone with a lisp saying "so"

or what



because if the point is just that she speaks simplistically, you already communicated that, and it would still be better to spell the word out

I have just planted a subroutine in my mind that ensures that I shall forevermore read that collection of letters as /θō/ , rather than /šō/

tho tho so tho tho so stho

stho stho

tho is not /T͟Hō/, for it is /THō/

ho ho~

Personally I think half of it is to show her simplistic style of speech, and the other half is because it would screw up the lettering a bit if he used "though".

Like:

(I can't centre it so pretend that it is)
Quote:
WHERE
ROBO GIRL
GO TO THO?

Pretty good shape, while the last line isn't shorter than the middle as would be ideal it still works.

Quote:
WHERE
ROBO GIRL
GO TO THOUGH?

Last line is the longest, not ideal for fitting in a bubble.

Quote:
WHERE
ROBO GIRL
GO TO
THOUGH?

A line longer, looks kinda bad because it goes in-out-in-out.

Quote:
WHERE ROBO
GIRL
GO TO
THOUGH?

While it works shape-wise, splitting up "robo girl" isn't good and should be avoided unless completely necessary.

Here's the part where I interpret your joke, erm,

literally? no, that's not the right word

it can't be literal if it uses a figure of speech, can it?

...and link to the thing

but I really don't think it had anything to do with the lettering

Code:

          ∧_∧    / ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄
         ( ´∀`) < where robo girl
        /    |   \ go to though?
       /     .|     ________
       / "⌒ヽ   |.イ |
   __ |   .ノ | || |__
  .    ノく__つ ∪∪   \
   _((_________\
    ̄ ̄ヽつ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ | | ̄
   ___________| |
    ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄| |

also the flow of conversation, and the lack of anyone else around

Tange her outfit is grey, while the hand pointing is black with a white thing around the wrist.

To the plot, I can only quote Dickens “Please, sir, I want some more.”

Maybe the map is touch screen and you can scroll it.

How come no one is mentioning Lil'E's Psychic powers?

Why are they changing course to the Headquarters when all this time they were heading to the factory if the kid DOESN'T have psychic powers?

Hooray! Plot again!

I think Lil' E is making a bit of a leap by assuming that she's been taken to Deviltech HQ, but to be fair, it's probably the first place I'd look too.

Since they don't know about the attack at the factory, they're assuming that Pxsomethingsomething is still on the warpath, and if they don't know about her focus on Milton, they'll assume she's going right for the top of the organisation...
