I've been following MegaTokyo online since January of 2003, when I was in high school, and it was my entry-point to the world of anime and manga and gamer culture, so it was a formative influence on me at a formative time.

I've also picked up the books as they've come out, partly to support the author and partly to support the idea that webcomics can usefully transition to print, and because it's a nice, compact, low-bandwidth format when I want to reread the story, as I did this past week.

The MegaTokyo update schedule has lately grown erratic enough, and the plot complex enough, that I'd lost the thread of the story, and was having trouble following what was going on in the latest pages. MegaTokyo has always been infamous for its update schedule or lack thereof, and online I follow it in Piperka, a webcomics aggregator, so I get notified when it updates, and it's no skin off my nose if it misses one. The site itself also provides a good selection of RSS feeds. I highly recommend technological solutions if you want to follow the comic online, otherwise you're likely to be very frustrated by it.

It is a fairly complicated story, by this point, and one can't pick it up just anywhere. I had been hoping for a recap at the beginning of the sixth volume, but it was not to be, just one page of introduction and then off to the races. Both comic chapters included in Volume Six are long chapters, and the book itself is the longest of the volumes yet, so I expect that everything but the comic got excluded for pagecount reasons.

Megatokyo is one of the funniest, most action filled, drama filled web sites that you can find on the internet outside of some transgender web comics. Yet it does seem to be losing some steam. The zombie stuff is starting to bore me - it's not the story's fault. They just seem to be everywhere now a days and I was never a fan of zombies to start with. Vampires, yes. The undead trying to eat my face off, no.
I still love how strong Largo seems to be even when he is asking Piro for advice on his love relationship. Even while this is going on Piro is trying to find out where he stands on his own relationship with Kimiko, the new upcoming idol, and wondering if he should have a stand at all. Soon battle is engaged, between mad fanboys, zombies, magical girls, and some other undead club goers? I have no idea at a certain point what is going on. I mean, I love these characters, but the plot has gone out the window at some point. And there is Miho who I also love but than there is Ed. He seems cool and everything but do we really need some kind of assassin? In the end, I enjoyed the book but felt I was missing some loose ends or maybe not seeing the whole picture.

Big fan of Megatokyo, since the beginning when it was originally just in the 4 panel format. Glad I finally picked this up after I kinda stopped reading it for a while.

Fred Gallehger is a genius and his graghic novels are haphazardly funny and sinisterly sophisticated with a nerdist out take of modern gaming and anime culture.
