I think you can go toe-to-toe with a lot of the sites around here! First of all, I, too, am a fan of the animated guy in the beginning.
The text is hard to read for me too. The anti-alias makes it blurry. In addition, it needs more contrast to stand out from the dark grey background. I like the font you are using.
Also, check your layers. Sometimes I click on menu items and those items appear underneath another open window. This could be confusing to some. Kirupa has a great layers/stack order tutorial to amend this.
Other than that - it’s fast loading which is always a plus. The inter-sectional tweens are simple yet refreshing (I like those background images as well). The navigation is pretty simple and straight-forward as well.
