Its not Great Pretenders good, but this show didn't disappoint - knocked it out in a day and enjoyed how the story flowed. I will admit its not perfect by any means - certain storylines seem rushed while others drag on but overall if you pay attention there is a lot to take in.

The animation and design is quite striking and bright; the high enegery that juxtaposes the initial conversation we hear, sets a precedent for the quirkyness you're about to experience. But it then takes a turn, not only in terms of the side-car aspect, but in terms of all the drama. Pretty much almost every relationship, bar ONE does not actaully grow, develop or change for the better, and that's the first one they address between Chiyuki... See full review
