Anime Review


  • I Love the characters, they are very fun and amusing.
  • Good protagonist, he`s presence is thoroughly enjoyable.
  • Well written, from a strong lead, realistic kids and funny moments.


  • It never got emotional, when it could. It stayed too close to home.
  • The two most important characters of the show didn`t build a strong relationship.
  • Simple end. It wasn`t very powerful it felt like another episode had ended.


Final Comments: A GOOD WATCH, Only if the show would be renewed for another part.

Stream the first episode below. (Funimation)
