I don't know or care what the name of the character doing all the yapping in this episode of Megatokyo is, but I will say that I haven't wanted a character to die in a fire this badly since I finished the last Song of Ice And Fire novel I read some months back. Good God, what an irritant. A couple more strips with her and I may stop caring how it all turns out...I suppose there is some connection between the "Neverwinter Nights" adventures of Piro and Miho and what's going on in the strip, but it seems to me that the elephant is laboring very hard to bring forth a rather small and worthless mouse.

I can totally understand that reaction to it; both of the people who got me into it (phoenixalpha and jtrainor) have abandoned it for the same reason. I have it on RSS feed because I got tired of looking for it on the promised update days, but I haven't given up on it...yet. Another couple of strips with this thoroughly unlikeable minor character, though, and I just might.

I don't think Megatokyo is bad. However, I think that the creator has fallen to Chris Carter syndrome - everyone thinks he has an overarching story, but in reality, he's making things up as he goes along. From what I understand, the 16 year old in my house has this webcomic called Homestuck that is falling to the same problem.

As a whole, I like it - wouldn't have bought all the graphic novels so far, otherwise - but lately it's been irritating because I think that there are so many subplots and minor characters by now that he's lost track. Of course, you may be right too, and he may just be making it up as he goes along.

Homestuck, I don't have any personal experience with, but the consensus among Goons is that the creator is deliberately mocking his readers, and they're so afflicted with the Geek Social Fallacies that they can't understand they're the butt of his jokes. Since the fans tend to act like more disgusting versions of bronies, I've avoided it like the plague.

To clarify: obviously not all bronies are disgusting, but some of them are obviously trying way too hard to surpass furries as the most despised subculture in fandom.
