    Megatokyo is the best.

    Fear the headphone cord. Read this manga, it's the greatest. It was probably my first and it's still one of my favorites.

    Fantastic American Manga

    Ever since I came across Megatokyo at its internet home, I have been quite engaged by the webcomic's plot, humor, and artistic brilliance. I, being a gamer, can also appreciate the many gaming references worked into Fred Gallagher's creation. That withstanding, you really don't have to be a gamer or fan of Japanese culture and manga to enjoy Gallagher's work. He has the ability to create wonderful and subtly humorous images and weave a neat story that can take twists and turns but never totally lose you. The story is of two Americans, Piro and Largo, who leave for Japan and find themselves without enough money to return. Piro is a nice guy, though obsessed with anime and gaming. Largo is his quite possibly clinically insane friend who is a harcore gamer who thinks zombies are everywhere. Other colorful characters emerge as they try and get enough money to make it home, such as Junpei, the L33T ninja, and Ping, a physical representation of female characters in dating sims. This volume includes additional material such as 'Stick-Guy Dom's Emergency Art Days', clever farces by Dominic Nguyen that are drawn entirely with stick-figure people, and bits from Gallagher's sketchbook. These are neat additions to an already astounding collection. I await more book installments, and highly reccomend this for pretty much anyone.
