Opening is little boring, but not bad : D It's really cute ! Ending is cute too ♥

This episode was nice, so much craziness XDD

The OP looks great, I love the art.

The episode wasn't bad but the style is still a bit too random and crazy for my taste.

Those nosebleeds are starting to get on my nerve. Floating cat ears are a close second.

Everything else was just plain awesome. They even out each other i guess..

The opening is so typically SHAFT, it's awesome. Who else would come up with ideas like playing a maid like a guitar?

Btw, was the english translation a part of the Opening or did gg make the best karaoke-style ever?

One of gg's subbers spent quite a while on the OP karoke. Also, mandatory "stomachs growl when they are empty" lol!!

I laughed so hard when he called the president a fat ass. and the rape comment was priceless, it would be kinda hot now that I think about it... >.>
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

I love this opening. It will go down as one of my favorites until I forget about it! I just love Shaft so much for their presentation. It's the same within shows, but different between shows. But I did see a little bit of Hidamari Sketch x365 in this episode. Kanako's little blood explosions were funny, but got a little old very quickly. It's a shame though that they actually are going the route of turning her straight/bisexual by the end.

Average episode but not enjoyable as the first one.
The OP was great.

The theme doesn't interests me at all but it's so funny and well-done that I guess I'm forced to watch it now. What a shame ;)

Brilliant. Just brilliant. This might be my favourite anime for this season. The fact that it's got an Emotionless Maid too is just added icing.

I liked this ep a lot more than the first one. Loved the OP; gg's karaoke is great.

That fucking bunny or w/e that was that kept popping up really annoyed me though.

Very nice episode. Definitely one of the best anime of this season so far.
The OP reminded me so much of Pani Poni. XD

very cool OP, I don't think I'd sit around listening to it too often, but it's a lot of fun to watch.

i love every time they bust into Kanako's head. That last part where the narrator starts talking about the feeling in Kanako's chest, just busted me up.

I love the OP animation, great stuff.

This is shaping up to be very good indeed. It has that zetsubou sensei feel that I love...


Plus, the characters are great, especially the Dorm Mistress. I want to see more of her :D

Same here, I love her voice. She sounds like Maria, funnily enough.

Though this anime hasn't really been that funny to me, it does have some redeeming qualities such as the unique art style and presentation. All in all I find the anime as a whole to be slightly above average. 3/5 for the episode.


I also am rating this series as a 3 out of 5 so far. It also could be a show I drop before the conclusion if it doesn't come up with some new jokes. Already a lot of jokes are being repeated and this is only episode 2.

The OP animation is fun and one of the more unique openings I have seen in an anime. As for the song, I'm not that crazy about it. It is not bad but I can't see myself listening to it without the accompanying animation.

I find the OP song weird.

I really love this series' comedy. Lol'd at Maria when she computed the total time for 10m yen. Also the line "I'm gonna rape you"

Kanako really is a hell of a homo.

no ED this time? D: anyways good ep for me. it's kinda bit too fast paced for me to read the subs(slow reader i guess) but it's really great(the ep)

i loved how the sensei smacked her when she tried to figure out her age lmao

The OP was funny, and nice to see that they used some manga panels..

I do hope Kanako won't be flustered by every freakin' girl she meets, whether it's the blushing or the nosebleeds. This can get very old..
Oh well, so far I really enjoyed it. I'm keeping this anime on my 'to watch weekly-list'.

Enjoyed it. Awesome art and humour, great.

"Stomach growl when they are empty" remembered famous "People die if they are killed" X) Also I lol'd hard after "If you tell anyone my secret, I'll rape you" XD

Seems like there's a lot of mixed reactions about the OP. I suppose it's the style, but I enjoyed it.

I'm really liking the series so far, looking forward to next week.

Crazy op as usual for Shaft, but felt like it was lacking something yet... Still awesome never-the-less. Enjoying the series so far a lot, as I expected I would.

Best OP I've seen in a while~

Kanako is an amazingly hilarious raging lesbian, and Dorm Mistress is awesome.

You know something went wrong when most people will complement the OP over the anime itself lol. I dunno, maybe I'm just being pessimistic but I think this anime is over-hyped. Not saying its bad, or even mediocre, just think its being little too over-hyped. I guess when you slap a name like SHAFT on it, people go crazy, no idea why.

Kobayashi oughta be doing something more important instead of drawing illustrations for Maria Holic, like giving SRZ a reason to exist.

I liked the OP... it's very SHAFT.

I haven't read the manga, but I could see any other studio making a deadly-dull yuri-light comedy out of this. At least they make it interesting.

Just my ¥2

I thought there were some moments of total genius, but I can't help wondering if they can keep it up. It'll either get old fast, or be the funniest thing all year. Gotta keep watching ^_^

I'm still meh about this show. Not really my kind of humour, I guess. The OP is awesome though. It's by far the best thing about the show.

I really liked main character and the way creators express her feelings. It is simply awesome, OP was pretty fabulous too!

Just... even tough I'm pretty open to both yuri and yaoi types, this anime has a different smell. I WANT TO LEARN WHAT MAKES HIM XDRESS! xDD

EASILY my favorite OP of the season.

Mariya is also hilarious. Can't wait to see how ridiculous this anime gets.
