explanation

Hm, I wonder if anyone out there understands Megatokyo anymore. If I understood it even a little better it could be fun to start a Joe Mathlete Explains Today's Marmaduke-style blog wrt that strip.

It's not just me, right? All the female characters look identical?

I'm really not sure why I even look at the thing anymore.

Except for Tohya, yes.

And dude, no one ever understood Megatokyo. I think I'm with you, time to give it up and go on to other stuff.

I'm still mostly understanding Megatokyo, and I have no problems telling the female characters apart. Maybe I watch more anime than you do?

Seems to me most anime makes heavy use of color to distinguish characters that look very similar... Maybe it's that you read more manga than I do.

I do probably read more manga than you do. Although I gave up on Wallflower, where 3 of the 4 main male characters were visually distinguishable only by their haircuts.

Gave up a long time ago, but that was because Piro (the character) went from pathetic-sympathetic to pathetic-annoying.

Ah, a much better reason than "huh? what the hell was that?"

And quite true. All right, how do I stop reading this thing?

1. Delete from bookmarks.

If that doesn't work,

2. Replace with http://www.disapprovingrabbits.com

Megatokyo fell off of my list of "to reads" long ago - not so much because I didn't understand but because I didn't care anymore. The pacing was just way to slow to keep my interest - everything's dragged out so long that I can't even be bothered to remember what's going on. Errant Story joined it, and Goblins is making a strong bid for being placed in that category too.

I suggest strong doses of Irregular Webcomic, or possibly viewing the rerun of Narbonic as it comes back out.

Hiya, allbery mentioned you came through the park sometime after the fiasco I was in, yes? Could I ask you to email me at mg4h@livejournal.com, because if nothing else the congestion caused by the police officer's actions was one of the things *I* was trying to avoid.

Thanks!
