5.0 out of 5 stars Megatokyo - now it gets complicated..., 17 Aug. 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Megatokyo Vol 06 (Paperback)
I've followed MT from the early days - sadly can't say I was right there at the start, but not far off. It's gone from its polarised beginnings (Piro : thoughtful and angsty, Largo : b33r, zombies and slapstick) to a more emotion-driven story, particularly since Rodney Caston left the project.

While I do periodically visit the site, I find the books a much better way to follow the story. By removing all the DPD's and (shudder) SGD's, a few of which are included at the back of the book, and being able to read the story in one continuous arc, rather than waiting days from Fred to post the next comic, it makes things much easier to follow.

Vols 2-5 could be broadly summarised as 'Largo & Erika sort of get together, Piro & Kimiko keep trying to get together, Miho's weird and Dom & Ed blow stuff up.'

However, in the long awaited Vol.6, which covers two 24-hour periods in detail, the story becomes a lot more complex. Yuki's destiny reveals itself, Junko starts to play a larger role, the game that Nanasawa-san is involved in (Sight), hits problems, and the Miho storyline becomes even more difficult to understand.

It's an absorbing volume, more so than the earlier ones. Less 'fun' but still very enjoyable in my opinion. It certainly requires a couple of run throughs to absorb all the nuances of the story and to appreciate Fred's artwork (which continues to impress).

If you like Megatokyo, you've probably already bought this. If this has just caught your eye - buy it, but read the other five volumes first!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 28 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Megatokyo Vol 06 (Paperback)
Deffinitly a good buy if you have the other books, I have the previous 5 so I thought to preorder the sixth on here as it was cheaper than anywhere else.
