At first, you think it's another random childhood friend becoming your lover + other cliché female characters for the "competition", but it turned out to be a parody and filler anime with no plot development.

This is retarded.

No wonder when I hit the third episode I thought this series is more awful that it's usually meant to be. Ya know, since it's your typical harem shit. I am kind of anticipating it getting even more messed up from the poor directing.


If you think up to ep 3 was bad wait till you watch up to ep 8.

Read my review for more details.

Don't some shows' episodes get completed mere days or even hours before airtime? Compared to that, having it done a week ahead seems almost luxurious.

The first episode alone indeed was promising. 2nd episode went mm..ok? 3rd...... very messy.

Definitely a promising start.


Yep, the initial episode directed by Shin Itagaki was definitely better than what I expected. The second one was a bit boring but I'll watch the third at least to see where it goes. Also, I find most of the characters to be quite engaging and the scenario's simple and somewhat cliché but not badly written for now.

In fact, if you have the right storyboarders, a good animation director and a capable main scriptwriter, you definitely don't need to have a series coordinator/overall director for such a show, it's not GITS:SAC or LOGH... And there are so many movies and series (not only in animation and not only in Japan) not even directed by the guy who has his name credited as director that it's by far not an unusual occurence in today's film industry. The difference is that, generally speaking, the producer doesn't communicate such news on twitter :)

Damn, I thought it was going to be about real cats.

watched too absent-mindedly so I didn't realize... or maybe it's that 'the manga is okay so i'll forgive the anime' sydrome

The first episode showed promise, however I dropped it after the second episode, it bored me so hard.

This explains a lot. I've watched the first two episodes and I still don't have a clue what's going on. They haven't introduced any conflict yet. I'll keep watching and just hope things get better.

Ahh, so it was this disorganized? Was unsure if I wanted to continue to watch this or not.

Apr 20, 2010 4:47 PM by Pw3age

....Wait...did I even watch the first ep? I don't even remember. That is how good this series is lol....

Seriously, I thought I watched the first episode but I'm not sure I finished it.

Can I direct one of the episodes too? I'm confident I can do it better than the other guys.

Definitely a promising start.
