This seems to be an underrated series.

Of course it is not really original, but it is cute and well developed, with beautiful art and really good voice actor/actresses, and nice humor as well. The romance in the series is cutely done and the lack of real violence is a nice turn if you are in the mood of something cute and nonsensical but not outright silly and childish (something the series is not).

It is a cute series without being brainless, and with nice and cute characters. A sure watch to lighten up and relax.

I sure recommend it.

Sound, this is where ...

Story 6/10
The story starts off with this typical loser-guy Goro, who has no job and little money. A rather unlucky young fellow, who doesn't seem to have any promising future. Then suddenly he meets a fortune teller, and before you know it there are three angel girls coming to serve ...
