Interdimensional Transfer Student Erro
! is a Slice of Life
, Yonkoma-style Webcomic
about the misadventures of a quirky transfer student
from Another Dimension
(Erro) and his perfectly ordinary
best friend (Travis) as they attend Uphoria High
. Taking many tropes and common conventions from the Slice of Life
genre as a whole, the series aims to create a feeling of interacting with friends that is not as common in Western media, using references to North American cultural occurances in the same way a Widget Series
would allude to Japanese culture.
This comic provides examples of:
- Manga Effects
- Animesque - In order to have the same feel as a Japanese Yonkoma. Specifically, a Puni Plush style.
- Big Eater - Erro
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander - Flora
- Comic Within A Comic - Naniji Gakuen, a romantic comedy manga Cliché Storm about a girl being admitted to an all-boys Military School and falling in love with the General who runs it.
- Cute Little Fang - Erro has one.
- Faceless Masses
- Fantastic Comedy
- Fantastic Racism - Subverted. Nobody seems to notice (or care) about the two-foot-tall blue fluffy thing attending high school.
- Hilarity Ensues
- Innocent Aliens - The Masco count as this.
- Keet - Erro. He's a little closer to this than Weasel Mascot, but not by a lot.
- Likes Older Women - Erro has a crush on his homeroom teacher.
- Magical Land - Masco, the dimension where Erro came from.
- Sailor Fuku - Oddly enough, the boys' uniforms seem to look like these with shorts and a tie (instead of a skirt and a bow, respectively).
- Token Nonhuman - Erro. He's the only nonhuman character in the main cast.
- Technicolor Eyes - Among other colors, characters have eyes that are naturally orange and purple. Erro also has Monochromatic Eyes.
- Unfazed Everyman - Travis Floridian
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair - Travis, despite being an average teenager, has naturally lime-green hair. Erro himself is covered in blue fur, but this is excused by the fact he's from another dimension and isn't human.
