A webcomic by BT Isaac, about the adventures of some misfit high school kids. Also includes the Sheyleron Saga, a side-comic that is so far independent from the main story. The comic has been launched on the 23'rd of July 2007, and is currently running its fourth episode. The FAN is hosted at Shastrix.com, and can be found on the other side of this link.Most characters are more or less based off people the author has known personally during his time in high school. Important characters include the following:
Hajime: mysterious Man In Black working for a somewhat Jidai Geki themed organization that is somehow connected to Yuki.
The Agents: A trio of Men In Black working for a different organization called Meta Net Corporation.
Ginger the Cat: A very oddly colored and apparently sentient two tailed cat that followed Tom to school, and is currently Keysha's pet. She spends most of her screentime sleeping.
Mrs Duckins: Tom's homeroom teacher and a part time witch.
The Hermit: A mysterious old woman aiming for the role of The Watcher. Not much else is known of her, except that she thought Mrs Duckins magic, and somehow gave the juniors' league their super powers.
Darren Blake: Xenophobic Jerk Ass, who may or may not have a heart of gold. Also implied to be behind a series of vigilante killings.
The FAN contains examples of the following tropes:
It Runs on Nonsensoleum: Apparently, watching anime can turn you into an anime character. Or maybe not. But at least people will believe it.
Mundane Utility: Averted. Dot finds out the hard way, that being able to control wind, won't make dusting easier.
Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Xeletor from the Sheyleron Saga strips is quite a literal example. Robot? Check. Ninja? Check. Zombie? Well, skeleton so it's pretty close. Pirate? Well, no. But he does look like a gangster. And he's always smoking.
Our Demons Are Different: a form of psychic parasites that are born out of negative emotions, and drain their host of magical and psychic energy, which allows them to grow more powerful, and eventually self-aware, then proceed to completely take over the host's body.
Our Dragons Are Different: Dragons are god like beings. they are never described or shown on-panel, but the one statue of Galion depicts him as rather intimidating humanoid.
Painting the Medium: Speech bubbles are actually just the text with a very thick white stroke and a black outline. the stroke gets a different color when the character uses telepathy, becomes more transparent when the character is talking in the background, or disappears completely and is replaced with a white glow, when the character is on the other end of a phone line or some other communication device, and on one instance, it turns into a red splatter whith a different font when a character gets really pissed off. Some characters also have custom speech bubbles: SK-49 has red text with a black stroke and red outline (along with an Arial font), General Zarro had white lines with black stroke and white outline, Captain Nil uses a distinct, edgyer font with a grainy black cloud, and the Mastermind uses green lines in a transparent black box with magenta outline.
Photographic Background: Done in the latest episode with photos of the actual real life locations the scene is taking place at.
Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Pete's hair grows ridiculously long when his powers are activated and falls out when they are deactivated.
World of Weirdness: That doppelganger that assumed Tom's appearance seems nothing out of the ordinary. The fact that he's a mercenary hired by a shady organization is much more unnerving. Telepathy is also a mundane trait.
