Perhaps what gives Megatokyo such an appeal to anime and manga fans alike is the personal tone in which it is carried out.
Readers often find bits of themselves or their friends in a few of the characters, who manage to retain a distinctive fan-made air due to the various anime and gaming references in the story as well as the humor. Readers are also able to feel closer to the artists through the comic's website, where the authors post “rants” on what is happening in their lives, or on thoughts that pop into their head.

Such openness can only bring the readers closer to the artists, once again keeping that mood of a webcomic made by gaming and anime fans for other gaming and anime fans. Despite the professionalism of the printed comic, or the quality of the contents, the allure of Megatokyo will always be the friendly and casual feeling of a fan-made production.
