To be fair, you can't expect much more from a show that asks so little of your time. The question does remain, though: if an entire episode is going to be devoted to building up one single joke, shouldn't the joke be a LITTLE better than just "mildly amusing"? If the producers had felt like constructing some kind of narrative to weave the jokes into, it could have made for a decent 30 minute OVA; as it is, each episode just left me with a feeling of "why did I even bother?"
It should also be noted that the theme song is 30 seconds in length, and thus makes up 1/3 of each episode's running time. This turns out to be a pretty poor production choice, given the show's format all but guarantees that the audience will be watching multiple episodes in one sitting. It's not a terrific song, and it becomes more than a little irritating when you hear it start to play for the fourth time in six minutes. read more
