The main character, Penny, enters EIT as a freshman and quickly finds herself in the middle of nerd culture. She meets a wide variety of characters, including a non-militant hardcore femenist, an invisible roommate, LARPers, and a guy who sneaks into the room just to play video games. Overall the cast is about what you'd expect from a nerd culture at a tech school. The comic is generally gag-a-day with occasional multi-strip arcs and a few asides where the author talks about things happening in her real life. The strip updates Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
The author actually created a (kind of) fully functional website for the school, complete with course listings, which can be viewed here.
A character sheet is now in progress, please add to it
As of 26 July 2014, after a hiatus beginning on 10 March of that year, the author put up a comic explaining that many things around her personal life had changed and that she wondered whether to continue the comic in the original direction. As of 26 July 2016, the domain has expired, but you can still try your luck with the Wayback Machine.
Tropes used include:
- Art Evolution: The art style has changed two or three times, most notably the shift to color.
- Con Recap
- Cosplay Otaku Girl: Kali has an Alphonse Elric costume. As in his armor. The reaction is great...
- Faceless Masses: They're primarily male, and most of the major characters are female, so they're all silhouettes marked with Mars symbols.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Wiredwolf shifts whenever she's angry (and, once, when she needed a Halloween costume.) Post-Plot-Relevant Age-Up, she has wolf ears (and tail) even in human form.
