I enjoyed the first two episodes way more than I thought I would! Watched them on a lark since they're on Funimation where I have an Elite membership but I may be hooked, so funny!

This show is better than it has any right to be. Sure it has some pretty bland characters and a bit of fanservice but I honestly didn't care, it was stupid awesome fun and I found it very entertaining and in the end that's all that matters.

Yea... Ben-to is better than you might think, but still silly-screwed ... I liked it.

Ben-to is simply one of the few anime that I can say that I just enjoy to watch. It's ridiculous and has many horrible technical, but the sound track and the fights make this just pure awesome to watch. Plus seeing the Ice Witch in her swimsuit is always enjoyable.

Ep. 1-2

Don't have your dad get punched over a can of soup, and don't have yourself get kicked over a half-priced bento. That pretty much what this show is here as Yoh learns the hard way that to score a discounted meal that it's a battle between wolves, and dogs will get eaten for lunch. But he gets into the business anyway after meeting the Ice-Cold Witch. The concept of this show is pretty silly, but certainly I am enjoying it.

I'm enjoying Ben To more than I thought I would. I wouldn't go so far as to say it subverts the genre but it does show how ridiculously formulaic it is when you can make the entire premise fighting for discounted bentos. And it works.

I looking forward to more!

I enjoyed the first 2 episodes waaaay more than I thought I would. It just cracked me up how crazy it gets during the fight scenes. The one with the "boar" and the rugby team was great.

I'm in the "waiting for a second season" club. I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to; I really liked how they managed to take the premise just seriously enough to give the show some depth while still keeping things pretty ridiculous.
