This is a fun as hell series and everyone should watch it at least once.

One of my favorite episodes is when they visit the “dating sim” world, especially the ending. “Uguuu!” LOL I was lucky enough to watch that right after seeing Kanon, which definitely helped my appreciation of it.

I actually have three sets of this. The first thin pack without the extras, then two copies of the Perfect Edition in the tin with all the extras intact. I got one as a “$10 Blind Box Bargain” from Right Stuf.

This show is definitely a blast! Though a fairly thorough understanding anime is an admission requirement. Also, the opening is AWESOME!

Unfortunately, it did sort of ruin the ending for my friend who hadn’t finishing watching Kanon… :silly:
