----------------------

First episode.

Stupidest anime I have ever seen (well maybe not). But I enjoyed it lol.
What's more to say? A war of who gets the half-priced bento?
Very unique but stupid concept. I'll keep watching.

This show is way too over the top about fighting over cheap lunch boxes for its own good.

Thanks, but no thanks. I'm good with just sticking to Gintama, Family Guy, and American Dad for my random shenanigan fix.

To be honest... i found this anime the most random anime ever. It was funny though. I'll see how this anime develops and then decide whether or not to continue watching it.

Wow...that...was...

I would classify this show as funny stupid. I chuckled often (even chortled), enjoyed bits and bobs (though the 3-D was hideous in parts), but alas, after watching it, I am most certainly dumber. I felt my I.Q. burning away as each minute passed. I don't want to admit it, but it actually might be a fun diversion and one of the better harem shows this season if they can dial the randomness down to eleven.

I'll give it my standard three episodes to prove itself, but I'm afraid that if I watch the entire series, I'll end up with the I.Q. of a small soap dish.

I thought it was kinda confusing at first, but overall i think it's going to be a good series.

I have to ask my friend if there is really a rush to buy 1/2 price bento

but in a way I do notice there are buyers that go to Nijiya market or at BENTOSS around 630 pm to wait for the bento and sushi to be marked down by 20 percent or more .When you show up a little late , the choices do gets slimmer.

Its kinda funny and over the top but you wonder if the plot is just all about that?

This just sounds too silly even for my taste. Maybe it will be funny, but will this override the annoying. I would need to see an episode or 2 to fully judge.

That was fun

extremely simple and quite honestly silly

but I love a good fight series.

and in some ways fighting over half priced lunches actually makes as much sense as any of the other Fight series I've seen.

When I had read the synopsis about this upcoming anime, I thought it was pretty ridiculous.
But I have to say, I didn't think it was too bad. I've seen worse first episodes with a more compelling storyline and was disappointed. Maybe being prepared for garbage made my expectations lower but I liked the first episode of Ben-to.

"We got our Asses Kicked by some guy. So lets go around the world and find other people to beat up." (and they did a good job with that plot, that series was a lot of fun too.)

There is the ever popular "to win the girl's affection"

and of course "We fight because we are Men."

"We fight because apparently I'm evil?"
"We fight because my Dad is an idiot."
"We fight because of Ramen"
"We fight to decide the most powerful Boobs in the land."

"We fight because that guy said so."


there are quite a lot of series that aren't fighting for the fate of the earth or to protect your loved ones or for revenge and other good epic things like that.

some shows are fights for the fun of having fights

and that's just fine by me

After re-watching the first episode, this show tips its hat to the Clint Eastwood movie High Plains Drifter. In spirit only. No direct scene rips mind you.
