Hilarious story , and somewhat fitting animation .

After watching the trailer i thaught i wont like the animation style but while watching the anime the style grew on me and this 'manga style' anime is quite fitting for the fast pace jokes ..

If you are looking for some good laughs and relaxing time this anime is for you .

The animation is very disappointing, it's literally just stills with mouth movement most of the time. But when someone does move, you immediately regret hoping for it as it is completely unnatural. I don't watch anime because I want manga on a bigger screen. I don't read manga because I am not interested in the format. 

You can barely call it animation, it's a powerpoint... What is proper term? Motion storybook? If you prefer Manga you may really like the format. And if you love or can tolerate the lack of animation in anime, it would bring it up to mediocre territory.

That said, I like the concept and it could vaguely be described as occasionally amusing. But it's no Gintama in the humor department. I think It could have been really good but the execution was flawed, the comedic timing is off.

Sound is serviceable but below average. Music is nothing special but not among the most awful.

Characters are decent.

Story, again the concept is fine, the depth is not great.

Overall, it fell well below my hopes, but there are certainly worse anime.

This was honestly one of the funniest shows I've watched. Each episode is subdivided into around 6 mini-episodes that are each around 2-3 mins long, so it's more of short comedic situation instead of an overarching story. However, lots of the mini-episodes reference previous events in the series, and are in gereral very well done. The characters are brilliant, very wholesome, and quite quirky. The most disappointing part of the show was its animation, which was basically just a PowerPoint presentation of animated frames. The animation did grow on me after a while, so it wasn't as noticeable as in teh beginning, but I still think that they made the wrong choice with the animation. But 10/10 for the actual content of the show, and absolutely recommendable for anyone who just wants a nice, funny show to watch.
