I don't know how I feel about this. I remember liking the OVA since it was one of the first far fetch anime I watch with tons of anime culture satire.

In 2015, we have seen way too much of these anime so I am not sure

edit: They need to bring back Dokuro-chan.

How I hate this new tendency on MAL then you just copy-past roles for staff/cast from ANN. They always post recently licenced things as examples even if they are shit and person has much better works.

But back on topic. I'm a bit disappointed they changed the MC for this. I liked original Komugi. But I'll check this out cause Kawaguchi can make a good comedy and I liked both Soul Taker and original OVAs.

Quoted for idem. I mean, why list Akio Watanabe to Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream when he's clearly much much much more infamous for things like Bakemono or at least Grisaia.
