    Default Megatokyo.

    Like it? Hate it? Discuss.


    A member here, rikem, had the megatokyo link as a sig. It intrigued me, so I started reading the webcomic/manga. Of course, I had already heard of it(who hasn't), but hadn't read it, because I had read some slanderous things about the artist(which I now think are way out of proportion), and the breakup between him and the other co-creator. I decided to give it a shot.


    I like it. I find it has a well paced, interesting "slice of life" and "romance" plot, with some funny stuff thrown in as well. What do y'all think of it?

    Love it. ^_^ I keep forgetting to read it, so I have to catch up every few months - but it's very good. The story is interesting - it's not cheesy! - with good characters, and it isn't fully romance or gamer-adventure or whatever. Really, it's the only thing by an American I'll consider manga (that I've seen).

    Too slow (the releases), the artwork is good but there are a lot of other webcomics with better shorelines, both standalone or continuous.


    And there's been some revisions that's been made midway (which wouldn't be that bad if it wasn't so obvious or didn't interfere with the story, but as it is it makes things a lot more confusing).


    Not saying that I don't like it, though it's definitely not my favorite webcomic.

    It used to be good. Then it tried to be serious. Fail.

    >___> Well I like it. And anyway, since they ended TCS, I don't have any more humour. (Except VGCats.)

    Yeah, that was one of many problems.


    @ DE, I would recommend the works of Dan Kim, his releases are very erratic and he caters to /b/tards and the like but the artwork is great and his comics are damn funny (though definitely NSFW)

    Another one that I like is 8-bit theater (Hanul appears to like this as well, since it's in his sig), it's about the exaggerated personalities of FF RPG character, it's really funny, and much cleaner than anything by Dan Kim.

    I love it, although I loved it more when it was funnier and about anime, manga and gaming stereotypes. An whatever happened to the hamster?

    Used to be my favourite web comic, untill I found www.girlgeniusonline.com. (the main comic is getting very close to where the advanced class starts)

    ^ I think that was one of the revisions I was talking about.

    He decided to change how the conscience thing worked, but it didn't turn out too well, so he just shifted focus from that and left it as a loose end.
