I expect the MC to face some real opponents that will squash him soon. Then he will learn a lesson and really toughen himself up a bit.

Is anybody watching this?

I'd watched the first couple of episodes when it started and was unsure about it, so put it in the "second tier" section of my queue. Now that the season is ending and some shows have already had last episodes, I've found a little time to pick up more of my second tier stuff for the final "drop" or "watch" decisions.

This has made it to "watch." I'm currently on episode 6, and while the MC is still an obnoxious lout, there are signs he won't stay entirely that way...which definitely makes the show more bearable.

Also, I love the old-time sounding opening song! I often fast forward through OPs, or wander off to other rooms to do quick chores during them, but even though I'm now binge-watching, I'm still listening to that song every time!

It occurs to me that a comic lout-thing that I find particularly unpleasant is nose-picking--so that's bothering me a bit here and I'd be enjoyng the show more without it (bothers me also in Gintama.) Scratch your butt, or your crotch, and it doesn't particularly bother me. But the finger up the nose? Ewwwww.

I plan on watching this when it ends, if that counts.

It's actually not bad imo. The humor catches on and the show has its style. I'm not fond of the MC though at all...

Then again, he isn't a weakling and speaks his mind with brutal honesty. The development of his characters is quick to catch on. I think it's maybe the premise or something that the show doesn't get enough popularity.

I'm watching this weekly as the episodes come out (none this weekend, though, and for a while too-- maybe due to World Cup?). I'm enjoying it reasonably well, though I have to say it's high time the MC has his comeuppance. He's still a boor, and has never suffered any real consequence of his actions-- even Minami-sensei still seems to really enjoy spending time with him. I'm wondering if it'll ever really happen. Still, it's on my queue.

....And the show is back!

The match was pretty fast but Matsutaro's obliviousness to reality was just silly.

100 bowls of fish broth.



He's still pretty boorish, but at least in this one it was more silliness than bullying.

What a match. This guy actually put up a pretty decent fight and won too. Nice.

Anyone still watching this?

I kind of got hooked by false hope that we'd seem some character development, but I'm still watching even though Matsutaro's antics have been mostly getting more obnoxious and make me wince more than laugh.

I think we need more Reiko.

Also, I still love the opening song.

I am. The latest episode from what I recall had a wedding crash which was quite amusing since the ending was cute.

This is quite an underrated series.

Oh that's right! He was obnoxious in the first part of the episode, but then he used his obnoxiousness for good!

(Well, for money...but it was still a good deed.)

Wow, I actually feel sorry for the guy after the latest episode. So much for that date...



Lol, Tanaka came over prepared.

I haven't had enough time to watch anime lately. I do enjoy this series though.
