That's why plastic surgery and skin grafts exist: to give these people a chance at a normal life.
    While I agree, plastic surgery and skin grafts are not only about the social reception. Reconstructive surgery is also about self-image and even more importantly about more tangible improvement in living quality. Shaping up and putting back missing teeth is an obvious one, but for example healthy skin has quite a lot of functions that you really want to have and scar tissue just doesn't cut it. There are also many birth defects that can be fixed with plastic surgery that would otherwise complicate a person's life.

    So, I can see three possible directions for this.

    1: Tedd ends up calling his father... Hopefully, Edward and Lavender aren't in bed or that would be super awkward, to get what happened and that's the next story arch.

    2: Tedd still assumes that Edward is on a mission and, Grace remembers that Raven taught both Edward and Noriko and suggests contacting him, leading to Raven telling the story and it being awkward.

    3: Earlier in this storyline, Nanase's internal monolog mentioned that she was trying to lure her mother into talking to her about magic by covertly establishing that she had powers back.

    I'm kind of wondering if this isn't gonna lead to Nanase deciding to confront Mama Kitsune directly about it using the "Tedd knows about his mother's scar. He knows about magic, and that she was a mosnter hunter, he needs answers" as a trump card to get Mama Kitsune to talk(reminder: Mama Kitsune treats Tedd like a lost puppy.)

    I'm in favour of getting Raven to talk, as it could also be a chance to get Noah over there. To me, Noah feels like he's had a very long introduction, but still has to have his own story.

    Yes, we definitely need more Noah.

    And I wouldn't say "no" to Magus' misadventures in settling into our dimension getting an NP storyline.

    And I'd like to see the Ashliot form from this storyline make another appearance. ... And Elliot's party girl form too.

    And Justin needs to switch from a bowl cut to hair that looks good. His is the longest-running bad haircut, now that Tedd has okay hair.

    Then, finally, EGS will become perfect.

    Honestly, I imagine that Lord Tedd will be the very last thing to be tied off, except mayhaps an epilog.

    So, Jay knows who Arthur is, has a low opinion of him, and reacts very emotionally to bad things apparently happening to him. Maybe she met him in some unknown way, hates him for unknown reasons, but cares deeply about all people, even those she hates. Or maybe she and Arthur are family. He has been established to have a daughter, after all.

    Yeah...what she said about "my own opinions are sufficient" to explain Arthur's insert being a villain who pontificates about what he's doing being for the greater good would work very well if she was Arthur's daughter and didn't care for his goals.

    I like the gag in the thinky-Ashley panel, and it is neat that they're having an on-screen moment to basically infodump each other about the everything. Nicer than expecting a "we talked about it off screen" explanation, and much nicer than "nobody tells anyone anything".

    I mean, she doesn't really know what's going on and it kind of looks like the unicorn just killed a dude right there.

    At least, judging by the commentary that's the angle Dan is trying to push (not that that guarantess it's the correct one, either)...

    Turns out Jay's a tsundere. So I guess I was wrong about her being Arthur's daughter. It turns out Arthur is the main character of a harem anime, and Jay is the one inappropriately-young girl that every one of those shows has for some reason. Coming soon to EGS: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Retirement Home?

    So I only just now noticed that Jay has humungous hooters.

    In my defense, her appearances in the main canon really don't emphasize them, so I think it can be attributed to a phenomenon similar to change blindness.

    Remember that in the dream she's the Hero Of Magic and more magic = more curves in it.

    Once Ted succeeds in bringing magic to the masses, all girls will have humongous hooters. ... Oh, and I guess previously incurable diseases will be fixed with a simple waggle of a wand. But more importantly, humongous hooters.

    Except the way Tedd will implement it, all men and women will have hooters of whatever size they like best.

    Some actually want them smaller since being heavily front-loaded can complicate everyday activities and is harmful to the back. Esthetically, the statistical consensus is that the overall proportions (about 3:2:3) are more important than size itself.

    I've been picturing red. But that was probably influenced by her being a fire mage in the EGS:NP Parable story arc.

    Now that I think about it, the buzzed sides of her haircut are shaded darker than the rest of it. If it were all one color, it should instead look lighter, on account of her skin showing through. So the top is almost certainly dyed. I mean, technically, it could be the sides that are dyed, but who does that?

    Anyway, time for an awesome hair collage.
