I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up the first volume of Megatokyo, but if I'd had expectations, they'd have been wildly exceeded. The series starts as a collection of sequential (and hilarious!) comic strips that when read together form a story. Shy, artistic, sarcastic Piro and aggressive, obnoxious Largo (who has WAY too much imagination!) are a pair that were tailor-made for comedy. I laughed so hard for some of the strips that my sides hurt. So, okay, it's funny, but what else is it? As the story moves along, you get to know the characters better. You learn about Piro's depression and low self-esteem, and Largo's unexpectedly powerful sense of honor. The characters they meet and get to know are also well-defined, and all their lives intertwine in unexpected ways. So, what is Megatokyo? It's funny and moving, shallow and deep, delicate and over-the-top, somehow realistic and also decidedly not so. It's able to be many things in a small number of pages, but more than anything else, it's totally addictive. (Highly recommended to anime/manga fans, gamers, and l33t h4x0rm4573rs!)

I first discovered Megatokyo while browsing through the graphic novel section in my local library. I looked at it, flipped through the pages, and thought: all right, I'll give it a try. The next day I was completely addicted. I read it three times over. It is probably the best comic I've ever gotten the chance to read!! You'll definantly fall in love with this.

When Megatokyo first started online, I immediately became an addict to the adventures of Piro and Largo. The brilliant story-line and art work blend perfectly, allowing the reader to fully understand both the quiet and crazy sides of their own personality through the two main characters. If you enjoy Anime, comics, computers, or simply blowing things up...you will love the Megatokyo team.

I started reading MegaTokyo last year and have been a fan since. Really good series, you should read it. The only reason I gave it four stars is because when he started out, Fred's art style maybe needed a little work and in my opinion, I like the second half of MegaTokyo better. But still, this volume is original, reeeeally funny, and worth the cash! ^___^

At first glance this book is great!!! ... Until I stop and look at the other manga available, twice as good, twice as much, at the same price if not cheaper. Maybe the later books will be better, but getting a round trip of 'And this is how much this great web-comic sucked in the beginning.' at ten bucks a pop is a bit much.

Believe it or not I have been reading Mega Tokyo since it came out online some time ago, and lets just say Im not suprised they are this popular! If you dont know what Mega Tokyo is you should start reading now, not only is it a awesome original doujinshi, it will teach you how to speak L33t, which to say is pretty darn cool!

I just started reading megatokyo about 3 weeks ago. I managed to read all 300+ pages in 2 days. That proves how adictive this title is. The story and artwork are excellent. With his japanese manga style of artwork and american background Fred Gallagher makes a truly remarkable story that is easier for an american reader to get into because he or she can almost understand how hard it would be for 2 guys in japan to make it....plus it's just plain hilarious the stuff GTL(Great Teacher Largo) does with his 1337 5|

I have been a fan of Megatokyo since the beggining and I love the book. It is fun to remember and relook all of the hilarious antics and hijinxs of Largo in his search for beer and video games and Piro with his constant ability to screw things up all the while being innocent and thoughtful. Also I have learned to type and read 1337 (Leet or elite) a type of computer language that is often seen in Megatokyo. So to all I must say, f34r |\/|J 1337 5|

Being a long time reader of Megatokyo, I am thoroughly excited to see the title in print form. Telling the stroy of two friends' journey through Tokyo, Megatokyo skews reality with the popular fiction of manga, computer games, and the offbeat antics of not so imaginary consciences. If you are a manga or anime enthusiast, or if you want to see some excellently drawn, cleverly written work, I highly recommend Megatokyo

Megatokyo.. When you first read it you just can't stop. No matter where you go in this genre you are going to see either a reference or just pure homage. The deceptively simple story... Two guys go on a trip. Shows a light into the soul. Kind of like a walking super ego and ID these two have moments when you can sympathize and even love both of them. Of course there are also the time when you can only giggle helplessly. But that's good too. It's lighthearted when that's what you need, but there's underlying meaning that can be found... or I suppose, imagined. It is a very human comic with a very human artist, both within it and making it.

Sure, call me a newbie. A rookie, even. But when an online friend provided a "check this out" link to www.megatokyo.com, I simply clicked it without even wondering what might lurk behind. I was surprised to find one of the funniest and freshest bits of cartooning I'd seen in a while. After reading a few of the semi-daily strips (Megatokyo is published more or less three times each week), I was intrigued enough that I went through the archives and picked up the whole story from the beginning. That was earlier this year. Since then, Megatokyo -- MT to its fans -- has apparently grown much bigger than Fred (and his de facto writing buddies Rodney and Dom) had ever anticipated. Over that time, Fred's already excellent artistic talents have grown even more impressive, and the storyline continues to spin into ever-funnier and wilder directions. The whole plot starts out fairly simply. Two fans of modern Japanese culture (that is, video games and anime) decide on a whim to take a trip to Tokyo. The idea for Piro (the nerdy one) and Largo (the crazy one) is to play some video games, check out the scene and then head home. But they end up spending more yen than they anticipated, leaving them with no way to buy a ticket home. Having no contacts and no means of survival, hilarity ensues as the boys try to find a way out of Japan. I realized early on that Fred Gallagher's style is deliberately intended to mimic that of classic Japanese manga comics, but his American characters and humor -- coupled with the proper English usage that comes from not having to translate the dialogue -- make Megatokyo a good general introduction to manga. Besides that, it's also a fun read for anyone into video games or modern Japanese culture.
