    Just plain Fun to watch
    this is flat out one of the best shows i have seen for pure enjoyment and laughter. a friend showed it to me years ago and started me down a long path of anime watching. There are tons of jokes about anime even the most casual of watcher will get. worth the time

    Fast paced, slap stick comedy with plenty of wtf moments

  • Jokes don't hold up, doesn't follow the manga at all: still really, really funny.
    Yeah yeah, a lot of people think this show is a classic, but the jokes simply don't hold up after all these years. It's understandable: the manga's comedy dealt with issues like illegal immigration and shady business practices all while poking fun at the plight of the working class in japan; that's not exactly television friendly.

    The real tragedy, however, is that the show is chock-full of ...
