"relax, we understand j00"
- Largo, who spends most of his time fleeing on a stolen muffin scooter, and once appeared in a teddy bear costume because he thought he needed a disguise.
- Piro, who has exactly no self-esteem, yet manages to be cool - usually by accident - when he wants Kimiko to like him.
- Kimiko, who became an overnight celebrity, and is having a difficult time dealing with it.
There seem to be zombies involved, various otaku1 who Largo mistakes for zombies, the Cataclysm Department of the Tokyo Police, and Rent-A-Zilla.
My daughter introduced me to MegaTokyo yesterday. She tells me that the overgrown T-Rexoid with a titanic dog collar I saw in today's MegaTokyo front page was from Rent-A-Zilla. It was stomping zombies.
I'm told that the gags are funnier, if you know L33t2.
1 Otaku: Intensely dedicated, hard-core fans of sci-fi, computer games, anime and manga.
2 L33t: Also Leet, Leetspeak, 1337, or l337. A phonetic form of the English word "elite," also the name of a written form of English traditionally used on the Internet. Non-alphabetic characters stand for some letters, and there are some spelling changes, like "z" for a final "s" and "x" for "(c)ks".
