Teekyu (however you want to spell it) is pretty frantic, but deeper than you might imagine at your first drive-by blitzkreig. Each episode is titled after a Hollywood movie and there are lots of movie and cultural references to find if you pause and sift through them all. Even though it's a short, by the time you slow it down and discover everything in there, it can take you almost as long as a regular show to catch everything. But just sit back and let it flash on by, and watch with the lights on if you're susceptible to dizzy spells from rapid motion. It's fun to be able to say: WTF Japan, seriously!? It's only a couple minutes wasted, and I've made worse use of my time.

Tekyuu manga is still as funny in volume 4 and the latest issue of Earth Star Comics monthly so I expect this will be great! Perhaps they production quality will be a little higher though the low frame rate actually made some parts more funny in season 1. Looking forward to this!

And I look forward to the service team LOL

To each their own but I am watching.BTW I think people(season 1) missed a lot of the hidden jokes that you have to solve/research to even laugh more.By the time you find out its a half hour episode honestly.And the movie Titles , a lot of game references etc.It just went over peoples heads.And the fans who did watch got a big kick out of it.

Interesting bit of trivia that I somehow missed for the first season, all the episodes were named to correspond with different American cinema shows:

While true this is taken directly from the manga! All the manga chapters are called Sempai and ... title of movie. 41 chapters so far! Today's episode was also chapter 13 of the manga, Full Metal Jacket.


Also this means they could do a third season right now as they have over 36 chapters already.
