As long, as I'll be able to get it subbed, I'll watch it for sure.

Hmm, this might be good to watch. May try this a shot even the synopsis seems to be alright and the animation is flash what people are saying in this thread.

It just makes it look like a short gag comedy.

The art is fine in this case due to the high possibility of insanity that might occur. It's not something you expect moe tier or high art in.

I am not a fan of flash animation too but the synopsis sounds interesting enough.
It does sound interesting, but it looks like there's going to be a lot of Evangelion references. I have never seen Evangelion before, so yeah :/

Maybe they will drop some hints about Eva 4.0.

I always thought of Hideaki Anno as a little insane, it's worth the watch for SoL shinanegans.

This actually sounds interesting. Living with Anno should be really weird.

This might be fun.

If this year isn't going to beat 2006 in terms of tv shows, i'll be surprised.

Mar 19, 2014 6:49 AM by rederoin

Interesting..I will give a try.

The manga has been licensed (and translated, of course) for sale by Vertical under the title "Insufficient Direction"

I'd love to read the manga. Too bad there's no translation yet.

Same. :/ Autobiographies are interesting.

What's the problem with flash anime? If done correctly it looks pretty damn awesome if you ask me.
