My Life Me follows the exploits of junior high students Birch Small, her cousin Liam Coll, Sandra Le Blanc, and Raffi Rodriguez. The series employs many Japanese Visual Arts Tropes and stars an aspiring manga artist. The series has attracted a lot of attention from 4chan's /co/ (not much of it positive), due to its animesque design and tropes, and its online "manga" maker, which is extremely easy to exploit.Here's a trailer.And many of the episodes are being uploaded up on YouTube.
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: If someone from the main cast has a love interest outside of their group, that person usually is mentioned only in that one episode, and then never again. Where do they all go?
Made odder by both that they usually GET the love interest and that the interest remains an extra (and so will share any general dislike of the main character that occurs).
And they keep using manga as a catch-all term for... anything Birch and Liam are into. At one point, a Manga Poetry Slam happens, which can be summed up as just the characters saying "Manga" a lot.
"Manga" is even used in situations that words like "comics" would fit better.
It's All About Me: Birch certainly seems to think that everything is about her. Even when some of the episodes focus on the other people in the pod, either Birch gets heavily involved with the episode or a Birch-centric subplot is squeezed in.
Small Name, Big Ego: Birch, oh so very much. When she shows off her own "manga art" to her manga idol Miyazaki Lee, he says it's good and that she has potential, but then insults a different 'local' comic that he had seen, not knowing that Birch had drawn it. This prompts her to overreact and yell at him, insulting some of the very work of his she was praising earlier.
True Art Is Incomprehensible: In-universe, the reason that Birch lost an art competition to Raffi was that rather than turning up something along the lines of this trope, she simply drew a picture of Raffi (evidently, she wasn't listening to Mr. Towes' directions) while Raffi simply painted a canvas orange.
Tsundere: Well, no slice-of-life anime-inspired show would be complete without one, so we have Sandra filling the spot.
