Ep. 01

This is such a super fun cute series!

[details=spoiler]Though when she played the divination game when Kokkuri-san disappeared, with tears streaming down her cheeks because she misses him and asks:
Why am I crying?”… “Why don’t my cup noodles taste good?”… “Will I ever get to eat you cooking again?”…
That just made me tear up so much![/details]


That character design…

Normally when Sentai (or Funi) licenses shows like this I at least check 'em out but their more detailed art is one of their biggest draws (lols) IMO so to this one I have to say “no dice”.

[quote]He was going to possess Kohina, but got
worried about her living all alone and devotes himself to do chores as
if he was her mother. [/quote]
This is from the plot synopsis over on Crunchy. I’m going to guess that it wasn’t penned by Crunchy’s subtitle team.

Ep. 03

This series is just awesome!


Awesome enough for…a dub? :smiley:


One can hope. This is another one of those “traditional” surreal comedies that needs a well-done dub to get it “over the hump”.

I group watched it, and when we were ruminating about a possible dub, we found that we all had the one obvious actor in mind. :frowning:
