This is an okay gag anime. It's pretty much the same as any other gag anime, just slightly more darkly humored.

Random and I expected something better, I started it because UTW-Mazui is doing it, I will see how it goes.

The longer it went on the more I began to like the show. However, I do feel that it would have been good as a shorter show (about7-10 minutes in length). It still is the first episode so I'm not going to put more thought into it than that. I enjoy the art style and the characters and will definitely watch the next few episodes.

I have to say, the gag with the scrolls and the ghosts being in the actual picture made me physically laugh out loud for a bit. A nice, happy, "7" rating for now. :)

Was expecting something else here and what i got wasn't really my thing.

The ninja was funny tho so hopefully it will be better next week but time will tell i guess.

u.u I love the opening song...

Yasuna and the bottle opener sonya-chan are kind of cute x3 but that agiri or whatever ninja girl @.@ her voice made me feel sleepy xD

I'll be watching this slow pace comedy, It was pretty good for me :)

Off to a good start. The OP is a genuine Earworm, even if it's nothing special and the show itself screams "low budget", but the characters are enjoyable and the situations they get into quite funny. I like the contrast between Yasuna energetic personality and Sonya's apparent coldness. Can't decide which of the girls I like most, though I'm biased towards Sonya right now.

And J.C. Staff has apparently been watching SHAFT shows a bit much lately. It greatly reminded me of shows like Hidamari Sketch and Pani Poni Dash.

Meh, it was OK. Simple yet pretty funny. The ED is pretty catchy too, but the OP and intermissions are weird. Not the best 4 panel adaptation, but I'll give a little more time.

Watching this was kind of a struggle, had it been a third of the length instead of 24 min. it would be a nice little gem.

The characters are cute but it just drags along.
It doesn't help that i'm currently watching Nichijou because I can't stop mentally comparing both shows.

No thanks on that OP, the ED is better.
They should have been switched around.

i read the 4koma but as an anime for 24 minutes the concept of Sonya inflicting pain can get pretty old. Dont get me wrong i will watch it for the more practical ninjitsu that the show portrays. XD i polled it as I liked the first episode, and i shall be watching for my favorite bits from the 4koma. the puppets one should be fun.

Unfortunatly, it's not as good as the manga in my opinion.

Perhaps this kind of series is just not meant to be animated...

Okay... from the description and cover picture, I thought this would be a cute and funny comedy, but instead, it's just... painful to watch. Also, wtf were they smoking when they made that OP?

This would have been much better as a 3 or 5 minute per episode show IMO.

Well... I give every anime that benefit of the doubt and watch the first episode, regardless of how retarded the premise sounds (of course, with the exception of obvious blatant fanservice or BL animes, which I will not watch even if people paid me to watch it)

I'll be frank. A comedy that doesn't make me laugh once fails miserably. I smiled maybe once...
I already have low expectations for this season... Please, I am hoping for another hidden gem...

Being that is an adaption of a gag manga, the content is meh and I do not have the attention span to watch this anime version for 24 minutes straight. This adaption would be nicer if the length was shorter (3-5 minutes like others had mentioned). This anime is dropped for the time being.

Not as good as what I was expecting but it was at least a decent start IMO. I never read the manga so I can't really say anything on that part. I will keep watching for now as this is probably something I'd watch if I was bored.

Mediocre... but not awful.

Somewhat my opinion too. It really made me laugh on some funny moments... 'cause yes, there really were some funny parts for me. These days there are many animes that can't get even this funny, you know. Like some of the stupid Sket Dance episodes. The humor in this episode was better than the one in many SD eps(not that I don't like SD - I really like it, but sometimes the gags there are awfully-executed). Not to talk about the Record to Randoseru - it's first episode failed hard for me.
So this one was fine with me - even if the funny parts were just few, they were lightheartedly enjoyable.

This show should only be 3 minutes an episode....I felt like they repeated the same gag 15 times in the first 6 minutes.

You're right here, my thoughts exactly. Even if they go with different gags, I just can't feel too well about watching it 20 consequential minutes (>.<)

Agiri is already my favorite character :D Lol at her shuriken-card :D

Clairvoyance no jutsu!

It's fairly good, gives off that Lucky Star kind of vibe but drags out a bit too long. Better if 10 minutes an episode.

If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Well, that was painfully mediocre. The lack of background music - or backgrounds - is disconcerting. I don't think I laughed once.

Whoever thought this series warranted full-length episodes is off their rocker.

HOLY SH*T......This show is HILARIOUS!!!
('s FUNNIER than the manga!)
My only problem is I don't know who I love more:
Yasuna for her innocent ditziness.
Agiri for her laid-back weirdness.
(Great work from their seiyuu for that!)

Hey, don't get me wrong, I love Sonya, too.
But, I know she would chop off my schwang, the way
she chopped open those bottles, for looking at her the wrong way!!

One last thing....
The opening music DID sound REALLY BAD.
But, after watching the REST of the show,
it REALLY does seem to fit the show's content.

BEST SHOW (for me) SO FAR THIS SEASON.......8/10!!

hahaha those scrolls were hilarious. the ninja girl is great. she says she would teach her ninja techniques but not really teach you anything. i actually thought for a second that the ghosts in the pictures were her tricks as well. shouldve went more with that.

totally following this anime

edit* Ending song is great and very catchy. if this show gets big, i bet people will be dancing the ED dance.

This one was the most spontaneous addition to my watched shows this season. UTW released it, I saw the title picture on MAL and I just had to try it the same day ^^ And I got what I expected: Super-cute girls, randomness galore and humor aimed at a little older target group.

I have to admit, though, that it did feel like a bunch of those 3-minute-anime episodes glued together and I'd prefer to have it wrapped in some very basic plot. Nonetheless, it was fun, and more so than the short-anime I've seen so far.

My favorite scene was when they looked at that really scary photo and screamed for a few seconds ^^

As for the music: The opening might have damaged my brain, but the ending was really funky and perfectly fitting IMHO :-)

I'm not sure if I liked it... the visual art is just great and it gets funny sometimes, but the rest of the time I was hoping it would finish.

I have no Idea what to think... while on the one hand I got the same vibes I did for beelzebub's anime adaption (which were REALLY bad) I can't say I well... hated it. I watched it once early in the morning before school and didn't really laugh but later today as I found out my tablet could play videos, I laughed a bit more at the jokes. maybe its because I knew what would happen from the manga or if it just felt odd seeing it animated for the first time... oh well I'll give it some more eps, seeing as how I like the manga

Yep, Nichijou and Mitsudomoe mixed in one is the best way of describing this anime. Wasn't that funny but rather enjoyable to watch so i'll continue.

Haven't read the manga & found this anime to be rather sub-par. And I usually enjoy comedy too.
