It has always been a common thing for otaku to buy and get the stuff from Japan and I do understand that, but every once in a while, a rare gem appears. Megatokyo is one of those few manga titles made entirely in the west. Of course, you still have the Japanese influence in there but this masterpiece is one of my favorite western made Manga. In fact, this thing started out as a webmanga way back in 2000. Megatokyo is actually celebrating it’s 10th year and its still going strong.

The beauty about this manga is that its available free online at Megatokyo.com. You can start from the very beginning of the manga (Chapter 0) up all the way to the latest release. If you are too lazy to go thru all those pages, get the paperback editions (which I do have). The panel above shows my favorite couple Erika and Largo. Erika is a former idol and seiyuu that was really famous in Japan. She’s now just a lonely store clerk in an Anime, Manga and Gaming shop. Largo, is an American who happens to be the ultimate l337 gamer, hardcore computer overclocker and super smart awesome-sauce hacker. Go read this amazing masterpiece now!

It’s funny that I only find out now that my brother has a hard drive full of Manga. He noticed I was taking an interest in the Ichigo 100% manga so he shared one of his hard drives. Yeah, this is still part of the Hatsukoi Limited hangover. I watched the Anime way back (but didn’t actually finish it) and I was curious and asked a few friends how it turned out. They all said that the manga was better so I decided to start reading. There were a couple of official English titles (done by Viz) in one of the local Anime shops here so I was going to get them. My brother found out and he said that he had the scans on one of his hard drives (he has a total of 5 external hard drives). So I sorta ended up just reading this on the PC since at first I thought I wouldn’t be much interested.

There is an extreme difference of the Anime and Manga of this title. It’s like the North and South pole. The Anime had way lots of comedic scenes, in the Manga it still has them but there is a serious overtone to it. Of course the ecchi situations are there but somehow they’re not as lewd as those seen in the Anime. So why am I reading this again? I dunno, I’m lovesick I guess. =P
