Yeah the comedic timing is different to the way the manga comes across. Strange. Part of it is because they skipped the first chapter for no good reason... I can't understand that. But at least I only read 2 chapters. I found myself liking the second half of the episode (which I had not read beforehand). Hopefully the rest of the show stays that good.

Ep 1

Ehhh, not quite as funny as I was expecting. It had more of a Locodols vibe to it but thats probably just me.
It had a few good moments but for the most part I was just watching it expressionless. The ero jokes in the beginning were pretty meh but I guess at least the Sensei part was cute.

Guess they're upping the fan service next episode.

It wasn't very funny because they didn't introduce anyone and focused on the easy laugh with Ero G-Man who's barely a character. You can read the first 3 chapters of the manga without spoiling yourself, and get an idea of what this is really about.

I felt like it was missing music in some scenes; they just felt really quiet and 'dry'.

Wasn't the funniest thing ever, but it was good enough to keep me interested. I eagerly await more episodes, which is good because I've already encountered disappointment this season with other shows.

Three episode test, I think. Sort of weird that they straight up revealed sensei as a manga artist in the first episode, and bad timing doing that after Nozaki-kun just ended. The second episode being fanservice already is worrisome.

I thought the first 10 minutes were hilarious. After that, meh. As usual after a first episode, it's wait, and watch, and see.

Someone -I don't care who- needs to make a GIF of Sensei's finger dance in the ED.

Watched the first episode and I enjoyed it a fair bit. The comedy appeals to me and I like the characters so far. I think I'll enjoy it in the same sort of way I enjoy shows like Hidamari Sketch if it carries on the way it started.

I think one part that stood out for me was the bit where Hiotan tries to make Umio uncomfortable but ends up making things worse for herself too. I often enjoy that kind of over-reaction comedy. The Sommelier bit was hilarious, of course. I also liked the Baseball "metaphors".

I'm not sure who my favourite is yet, Hiotan was quite fun but then Sensei has glasses. We haven't really seen a lot of some of the characters, I'm interested to see what Fu-girl is like (aside from that one bit where she seemed to get excited over Umio having something stuck somewhere). Sommelier has potential, I often like the quiet ones.

I expect I'll enjoy this series, I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes.

I watched just the heck of it and I though it felt the characters were on your face already since there are a lot of them and at the same time, many things were happening already.

I didnt really enjoy watching the entire episode but since they are in a working environment , I might try to check how the next episodes go.

Episode 2

There's a special late night sale that has everybody wiped out, especially Fu. And then there's a contest that involves panty-eating for the guys that Sommelier wins, rolling balls for the girls that gets Hio rolled over, the wife-carrying race that Umio totally fails, and tuna tug of war where Kameko falls for a scam leading to defeat. The final event is a water war, and the winner is Team Sense, a team as one. Well, the night sale part is nice, and while I got some laughs from the competition, it was incredibly stupid. Anyway, I'll give it another episode as I'm not ready to say if I will or will not follow this show.
