That was cute, Machi and a bear in slice of life story.

I love the OP song, it really has an adorable tune to it with the artwork, something that I find to be stylistic to this series. Yeah, this is going to be a fairly relaxing series. I though the VA did a nice job portraying the bear as well.

Is it a short? Or does it have the length of an average TV show?

Oh, so glad to hear that! :) I love Hiroki's voice and he's pretty much the reason that got me interested in this show. But it sure looks heartwarming.

OK, this is fucking ridiculously cute and funny, I also love the art for the show.

It's also interesting that Machi's VAis actually a newbie, she did a fantastic job.

I think I'll really enjoy this show, seems like it'll be the most relaxing to watch this season.

It didn't start out really strong, but it got better as the episode went on. Some of the jokes were really funny. It was nice, cute and enjoyable. The ED was really great as well, I fell in love it with it.

I hope it can keep up this level of quality though. Will definitely watch.

WOW. I picked it accidentally, because I liked the poster, and just wow. Great start!! And art and animation, wowowowow. I hope that a good fansub group will do a translation, because Funi's one is a trash like always.

Okay, Natsu's flashback was hilarious. Dat little girl LOL, and when the little boy imagines Natsu having sex with Miko...omg.

The sex jokes caught me by surprise.

This reminds me of Barakamon

Started off really cute and funny, then turned uncomfortably lewd and funny.

I like the characters, especially Natsu and Machi. This show definitely has potential. I'm going to keep watching.

When the episode started I thought the comedy must be subtle, and the seinen tag doesn't belong here (considering the MC's age) but as the episode progressed so did my laughter!
Machi is damn cute and the bear has a silly sense of humor. Hope to see more side characters and more weird stories of the lead!

I came here expecting something simpler and a bit slow, and the first half was about what I expected, but that second half got me, and exceeded my expectations and I loved it -w-

I look forward to seeing what else this show has to offer. 5/5

I confess I was expecting something more childish too, so I was surprised. Ended up enjoying it anyway, also the visuals are cute so yeah I'll keep up with it.
And I really love bears

This show is awesome! I wasn't sure what to expect going in. But as I watched it all the comedy and the setting really got me into it. Machi and Natsu make a great duo.

Probably my favorite this season. Keep it up! ^^

Haaha they did a great job adapting the first episode, couldn't ask for better. Though the Bears VA threw me off for a bit, got used to it after awhile though.

Wasn't a huge fan of the opening, it was cute though. Ending song was pretty good though, catchy as hell. Can't wait to see Hibiki appearance, pretty pumped for next episode

Great first episode. I tried out only out of curiosity because of the publishing magazine demography and I was right: I laughed twice o_o that's a lot! Almost everything was either slightly amusing or very funny despite the length of the episode (strangely, the yonkoma at the end wasn't despite how much I like this format). Is the original manga a regular one or a 4-koma?
By the way, is the manga published in any western country? I NEED to read this.

The ending stays in the head and the animated sequence is cute, I like the style (paper + isometric)

5/5 Best thing so far for the new school year

The manga is published in a "seinen" magazine, so I don't think the animated version lowers the demographic target so low as children... maybe adolescents but not younger.

Didn't pay attention to the tags. Did not expect that to be so uncomfortable.
The little girl is great though, will see how it goes.

This show is weird. And so far I actually really like it.

Kind of like Pandora from last season in the sense that it's awkward but still oddly enjoyable despite that. This is going to be completely different from Pandora in terms of everything else, but my point still stands.

Is a late night anime, so is not for kids, also if from a seinen manga, the same magazine of Dance in the Vapire Bund. Probably is not the show for you if you are looking for a kid comedy.

Btw, is a very good first episode, want more. :D
