this was good, it wasn't fantastic but i enjoyed it, there was no fantastic end but that is just like Ben-To.

7/10 for this series, i felt any higher is to high for this series as it left me confused as to where the story is going a few times, and various other things.

A great, happy ending. Last episode was everything I wanted, especially another awesome brawl with the electric music.

Nice swaps with the OP and ED, very enjoyable overall.

Hercule way of doing things was okay in my mind. Also why the heck does Oshiroi always get a bento even though she cant fight =.=. Give it to one of the normal people that fight but always lose dammit.

Oshiroi is a sneaky little bastard and that's why she always manages to secure a bento. :P

I started this show yesterday evening and after watching a few episodes I couldn't stop myself so I finished it in one go. Who would've that simple fights for bento would be that amazing? All the values this story shared with us, all the rules about fair fights and the pride of wolves, all that amazing stuff about friendship and- my favourite one- that it unmistakeably tastes better if you fight for it with your heart and soul. That was a very strong anime and thus deserves a 9/10 rating. Wouldn't complain about a sequel.

I was hooked when I started this, but it just fizzled out n the end. The concept was fabulous, and the characters were very likeable. I only wish there was more Wizard and a more intense ending.

8/10 for this series. I disliked the ending. What's the point of fighting, if you are and will always loose(with Ortrus)? Oh, it's FUN to always loose. Okay.
Well, i've liked, in some way, that Ortrus are now friends with everyone, but like i sayed before..

7.5/10 for the series.

I don't know how to rate this series. The action was pretty awesome, the comedy didn't really hit me that hard, and the ending was unsatisfying. It was a great series, but it just wasn't for me.

This anime was weird.
The only episodes I didn't enjoy was the first one and the last one. I was disappointed that The Ice Witch didn't play a major role and nothing happened between her and The Freak/The Pervert. This final episode had no funny moments or ecchi - just long, boring, emotional scenes, which weren't really emotional since I don't like the twins. I also hate the fact how "Hercules" turned out to be some loser. Even Mr. Satan from DBZ could kick his ass! I'm still rating this 10/10 because of the other 10 episodes that I simply LOVED!

How the hell did I even this series in one day?
The actions scenes were awesome but the story aspect made almost no sense. I would def watch a 2nd season but I won't have any high expectations for it

Not showing the last fight kinda ruined the last episode for me...
The Wizard only fought once and for like 10 secs.
Slow romance... So much bad
Series: 6/10
If they do make a second season I hope they rethink some of the ways they're showing the story
I really loved this show.. How could something so right go so wrong :(

I actually finished this in one day. It was fun to watch. I enjoyed it overall. But it was pretty weird. It was like gang fights for half-priced food. Well, at least you can say it doesn't lack originality.

Yu got total lesbian conversion points. Kyo(long hair), wanted him so bad at the end there. And I wish there was more development between Yu and Shaga.

I give Ben-To, an 8/10. Hopefully a second season will be here soon. I'd love to see more food fighting action.

That anime started well but lost his way on the road... finally over... the last episodes were hard to watch...

Lame ending and brainless plot. So, 5/10.

Favorite episode of all ^.^

Love the part when Satou wrote the note and protect the bento for Sen.

Over all 9/10.

Wow, great way to end the series! Surprised at what Hercules' plan was three years ago ... instead of defeating them, he just took all the fun out of it. Smart move; I wasn't expecting that :P
Eventually his plan doesn't work (and he gets owned) and they end up battling for the bento anyway. Orthrus lost ... and even Oshiroi got one! :O Nice of Satou to get the wreathed one to share with Sen :P
Overall, I was actually surprised by how much I liked this show. The music is FREAKING AMAZING. I liked most of the characters (especially ones that never showed up again ... WIZARD T_T) and the animation was pretty good, especially during fight scenes. It was really funny to watch and entertaining, so I'm gonna go ahead and give this a 8/10 :D

EDIT: Forgot to say ... WE FINALLY SAW BRUNETTE'S FACE! XD Or I forget her name but ... you know the one :P

What an awful and unsatisfying ending. Ice Witch didn't get the chance to fight the twins again, and they were defeated off-screen by...some magical ass pull they don't even bother coming up with. Absolutely horrible. The only redeeming part was Yarizui and Satou eating the bento. 2/5.

The show had a good start, but between introducing unnecessary characters while the important ones got sidelined and giving unsatisfying conclusions to the two arcs, it spiraled downward quickly. 6/10, I don't regret watching it, but it could have been so much better.

I loved this anime to bits!
It had a nice mix between comedy and action as well as its cute moments :3
I wouldn't mind some additional content like an OVA but I'm not keen on a season 2 to be honest. I don't really see what they could do with it :l

Anyway I liked this anime a lot!
My rating: 9/10

great show, incredibily weak, melodramatic, and anticlimactic ending though, the way they built it up, it sounded like she got raped or something, as the dreams sounded pretty bad, they got told to F off because they were too good, so what? they came back acting like badasses....i'd say Orthros deserved it...highly disappointed that the ice witch was absent, also another anticlimactic build up, was gonna give it a 9/10, 7/10 sounds better though

What a ride this anime was. This was a complete surprise package for me. Great fluid fighting animation scenes, interesting characters, great comedy and ecchi that wasn't too over the top. Really enjoyed it 8/10.
Also added a new fav female character into the list Sen Yarizui hehe Really liked her character.

completely agree with this. It's a solid series. I thought it was a great show at the beginning. It had so much potential because I loved the fights and the whole stupid story behind them, but the characters that were not associated with the fights were mostly annoying (I count Oshiroi here as well because frankly she wasn't fighting and her whole story while funny at the beginning got bland pretty quickly).

gave the show a 6/10 as well. It entertained me but there were parts that were simply a chore to watch.

Wow, truly GODLIKE anime. Honestly managed to make me laugh out loud so many times, and the anime tropes and cliches for once didn't get in the way. Usually, an anime derails in the second half as it falls to anime cliches and the girl characters doing annoying things, but nah; the characters were full of surprises, the comedy was always the main focus, and the action was solid as usual.

Yeah I would have liked to see the final battle, but considering that there was already a fight going on; seeing Hercules fight was AMAZING, I was satisfied. If anything, it would've just been a repeat of their usual putting baskets over people's heads thing. So the fact that it showed them beaten afterwards was a good balance, showing that like every other character no one is invincible.

And that's what I liked about this anime; EVERY character got defeated at least once, even Ice Witch. It kept that weird balance between serious shounen anime and absurd comedy anime from start to finish, so it never felt like things would go cliche for long since some comedy or random element would come along to mix it up. Besides, it would've been worse if it left the viewers hanging and showed everybody else beaten up instead, I would've been annoyed at that (even though that's probably what should have happened, considering how powerful those two were implied to be).

Still, I love this anime. Genuinely made me laugh, for once I liked the placid main love interest more than the hot headed tsundere, the action was shockingly good and the premise was silly but memorable. 10/10 from me, for being one of the few modern animes I've seen to actually entertain and stick to its purpose all the way through, without falling to overdone anime cliches like SO many animes have done recently. Great anime

The tempo in this episode was all over the place. It started out with the first 2/3 of the episode being spent slowly building up suspense for the final confrontation, but then the last 1/3 of the episode goes by extremely fast and instantly dispenses all of the suspense that had been building up. Someone's stomach growls and then suddenly everyone else in the store hears their own stomach growl too, and somehow that makes them all simultaneously change their mind about the whole thing and fight for the bento. Hercules reacts by joining the fight too, except he doesn't even put up a fight, and he gets knocked out in what felt like a mere 5 seconds. A brief shot of the twins fighting is shown, and then suddenly *black screen* and the fight is now over.

The ending just felt way too rushed. That final scene at the end where Satou ate the bento with Yarizui was great though.

8/10 from me. It was a nice surprise, considering I wasn't initially expecting much from it.
Some parts of this post may be exaggerated.

Not a bad finale IMO, I'm glad everyone (apart from Heracles, of course) got on in the end, the last scene with Satou and Yarizui eating the bento was nice and what we did see of the final brawl was good. However I really did want to see more of that brawl, especially how the Kyou twins were beaten. Also would've been nice if Heracles could've been stronger. I appreciate his tactic was just to stop the Kyou twins from taking part, but with his whole "I'll show you my title's not just for show!" deal, he ought to have lasted longer than 15 seconds or so, really, regardless of how strong the others may have become.

Having said that, I have enjoyed this series on the whole. Fun fight scenes, enjoyable characters, a catchy OP and plenty of great humour. I would've liked to see more of that final fight and also some back-story on just where the Kyou twins got their 'darkness powers' from, as I shall call them, but I certainly don't regret finishing the series. Overall, a fun show to watch. A solid 7/10 from me. :)

Damn nice ending for this series and to be honest I really enjoyed this even if this concept might be rather silly on first glance! Just the development in both story and character was amazing and almost every episode had an unique touch with great action packed together!

All by all a really lovely anime in general! 8/10

It was a good ending. Although we didn't see all of the fight it made me think that although it was clearly a battle that would go down in history against Orthros it wasn't truly the end and they carried on fighting the next day.

So long as their stomachs grumbled there would always be another fight.

Hah, Oshiroi still got a bento although I'm not sure I agree with that considering it was such an important fight. I still wish she'd been more of a fighter in the series but she worked well.

I wish I'd seen more of Asebi Inoue rather than just that last shot of her in the end credits with her head stuck in a door of all things!

Anyway, pretty great series. Wish there had been more development in some places, and way less Ume.

And after what I type on previous episode discussion about Brunette's face...

So-so ending because this episode does feel rushed.
I agree the artwork is somewhat weaker compared to previous episodes. Apparently they were not going 'saving budget for last episode' tradition, and that made me drop the rating.

7/10 from original 8/10.

Certainly an anime that excelled in everything it tried to do, however it somehow wasn't my cup of tea. I found it slightly less entertaining than Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? Excuse my score of 6/10, it's simply a personal preference.

But at least I know exactly what I'm going to go buy when I do visit Japan. Bento all the way.
Wheee! Now wasn't that memorable?

The only thing I didn't like was that the Ice Witch didn't get to redeem herself. But in the end the anime was about the Hentai I guess.
