Description
Begin as a webcomic before being published.
Set in a fictional version of Tokyo, Megatokyo portrays the adventures of Piro, a young fan of anime and manga, and his friend Largo, an American video game enthusiast. The manga often parodies and comments on the archetypes and clichés of anime, manga, dating sims and video games, occasionally making direct references to real-world works. Megatokyo originally emphasized humor, with continuity of the story a subsidiary concern. Over time, it focused more on developing a complex plot and the personalities of its characters.

Megatokyo was nominated in at least one category of the Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards every year from 2001 through 2007. It won Best Comic in 2002, as well as Best Writing, Best Serial Comic, and Best Dramatic Comic. The largest number of nominations it has received in one year is 14 in 2003, when it won Outstanding Environment Design. The series tied with Svetlana Chmakova's Dramacon for the 2007 Best Continuing OEL Manga.

Don't Judge a Book By its Cover   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

I put off reading this series for years, even though I'm a big OEL fan, because I hate "Sketchy" art styles. I recently relented however, and read volume one because I was able to get it VERY cheap. I was shocked at how hilarious it was. It's true that the art and the plot may be all over the place, but I feel my high rating is appropriate because I love comedy, and reading volume one made me feel like I'd just met a new set of quirky and entertaining friends. And don't be put off by the fact that it was started in the year 2000. I was surprised by how relevant all the pop culture references it makes still are to the anime/gaming world today.
