One word: BISHIES. If you don't like 'em, then don't read this.
As an avid RPG player, I loved the concept. It actually reminds me alot of the Dragon Quest games. I personally enjoyed the artwork alot, it's not too realistic. I've gotten tons of laughs and enjoyment from it, and it's the first anime/manga that I wanted to do a review on, so I'd reccomend you to take a look at it.
