Atrocious pacing, 13 minutes runtime is way too short.
Also, the comedy in the anime is not funny at all. Although they are cringe-worthy. Many illogical things happen, such as characters pop out of nowhere, new power-ups gets introduced without explanation, plot armours, overall a disastrous anime.

Everyone except the main character does not matter. No one else is questioning the OPness of the main character, they just accept it.
Also, the main antagonist, in the end, is ...

As for the animation, I can't praise it enough. Especially during the fighting scenes, this show really delivers and keeps you glued to the screen. The music and sound design really adds well to this.

The characters themselves are fairly stereotypical, but ...
