Fun anime, with a great and simple art, excellent fanservice and believe it or not with a good potential for a Shonen-sports anime.

Some of the jokes are local jokes so is probable you won't find them funny but the rest of the anime delves into silly stuff that is easy to follow so you will usually get a laugh out of it.

The antics of High School professor and student were good too, it really makes you wonder "things"...

Preliminary (1/12 eps)
If you wonder if you should check this out it's better to wait till there's more episodes. Maybe it'll get better in further episodes. If you want some ecchi scenes you better wait for

Series tries to be moe but fails.
It tries to be funny but it's clearly forced and fails.
Tries to be ecchi but producers censored every ecchi scene.
