So this is likely (near)simulcast 2. So what’s number 3?

Not a lot left unless it’s a shared one.

I made up some threads for all of the shows left in wordpad format this morning out of boredom. So I can just copy and paste if there is indeed a third one . So hopefully if there is it’s not a shared one cause then I’d have to make one.

This show looks like garbage honestly.


#10

How open minded of you… rolls eyes


#11

Not a fan of sports anime and even less of basketball so will most likely not be watching this one.

Now that all 3 simulcast are through their catch-up stage, time to post my impressions.

Eps. 1-4

This, is the worst of the three, though that doesn’t make it bad by any means, just not up to par with the other two.

In fact, if they wouldn’t have made nude/fetish loli a major focus in this as they have with these first four eps. it would be a serious contender as the best of the 3.

The drama aspects are unusually well done for this type of series.
The story (at least thus far) has actually had focus and purpose.
And the comedy aspect is always fun for me.

It’s the fact that they spend way too much time on the loli fanservice that really drags this series down.

As long as I have time to do so I plan on giving all three a watch this weekend. I have a feeling my initial thoughts after reading a few things and seeing some screen-caps are going to be on the money about this series. I don’t mind fanservice except when it’s the sort this is. There is a way to use the loli in a more cute then perverted way unfortunately it seems to get used in the more perverted way then the cute way.
