Reminds of a combination of the American show the three stooges along with a comical show staring Drew Carey called, Whose Line Is It Anyways. I think spoken stories with some visual presentation makes for an interesting story. However, there are a lot of people like myself that haven’t fully grasped the Japanese language. Thus, having word after word in a rapid fashion making up 90 percent of the show will lead to problems; for punch lines require time to let joke sink in. If you are not familiar with a joke how can you let it sink in if they are
progressing to another joke?
Jokes were sadly commonly recycled thus beaten to death. You know, when someone says enough already or move on.
In terms of episode transition they did an okay job. For not only was the art original to some degree, it had vocals. Which, was not helpful to know what was coming but was like bonus content for those that enjoyed the show.
I did like how they embedded some realism to the story. For example, during a very loud scene do you think you could hear someone vocals? Unless, they are projected over some sort of loudspeaker one couldn’t. Thus, logically there could be no subtitles.
Morality being the characteristic of one’s character is not looked kindly here in some instances. Such as smoking, thievery, talking with one’s mouth full. Then again there are some kind moral instances but those are sometimes hidden within the story.
I didn’t enjoy how the main character were talking over the credits. The show had finished, let the audience view who the show cast in peace.
Ending wasn't great. For it made sense on a comical scale but in terms of the mafia plot i felt it was ignored.
Unfortunately, some of the background depending on scene were unfocused. I am aware this is a presentation strategy to focus one’s attention but it can also ruin the art.
It was nice to see after each there was a new design rather than same backdrop. But as the show progressed the backdrop continued be constant but I think that is forgivable given the main character ‘finance’.
Given some of the violent nature it was nice there was no blood.
If there wasn’t a lot of repetition then I can understand this show being more comical.
I found the act of muting or in some term censoring the vulgar language. That actually boosted the shows moral.
