"Mr. Milkman" The fuck? XD

Anyway, I doubt I'll watch it, but who knows?
Best name. xD
It will probably be like JK Meshi! so unless you like shitty anime, I recommend skipping it.

On the one hand, the concept sounds interesting enough.

On the other hand, I hated JK Meshi for above all else wasting my time with some of the most poorly executed jokes I've seen in this medium. Hopefully this is at least somewhat better.

So does this mean JK Meshi! is finally over to make way for this?

Will the madness ever end?

It might be CG if a PV shows CG, I'll pass, CG needs a budget to be good.
Have you seen JK Meshi? It's Flash Animation. I'm sure Crane Game Girls will also be Flash Animation. I like JK Meshi anyways but if you're expecting high budget CG you will be very disapointed.

I'll check it out because the director makes me curious.

Im looking forward to it, nothing wrong with JK Meshi, so I hope this will be nice too.

Mar 10, 9:07 AM by Ramkec

Stray Dogs and Hero Academia would have to battle it for #2.
Or not even second place as the only potential challenger to this is its elder sister, JK Meshi itself!!
