    too short, too self aware, and tries to be humorous with disastrous results
    to be honest, the pilot of this series ends too abruptly.

    The "hero" is whiny and makes the self-aware jokes seem harsh and corny, and the assistant with the big sword is a cardboard cutout of the "big brother" type who looks to be either braindead or just pure bored.

    totally unamusing and not even worth the time my typing this review

    only need one episode to tell
    Based on the first episode, this is one series I will certainly NOT watch. Is there a point to it? If so, how can it develop in 5 minutes of inane dialog?
    It is hard to figure out who is the main character, given that these two bozos on the promotion poster do absolutely nothing of note during the entire first "episode."

    Sometimes four minutes is all you need.
    I've only watched two episodes of this show so far (all that are currently available). Normally I don't watch the abbreviated shows (Crunchyroll has several series like this), but I only had a few minutes, so I decided to give it a try. I found Senyu to be fast paced but easy to understand, with some very funny dialogue and really funny asides (directed to the production staff and the ...

    Pretty good start to a new series
    At first I was confused since I didn't know these were just going to be short episodes. Now that I know that I don't mind the show at all! Since there have only been two episodes, I can't say its amazing. I have actually laughed while watching this, it has a great feel and I look forward to the new episodes.

    To those that rated this 1 star. You need to be patient. Character profiles and ...

    Uhhh yeah and thought it was horrible...
    Seriously...all the bad reviewers are expecting wayyyyyyyyy too much out of this series...Sure Gintama is great no doubt about it but this one it's "kind of" having an RPG game theme which is quite popular now a days, right? So this is new and I SHALL supporting this! I don't see it why it looks so crappy and not worth it! It short so the story won't dragging too long until it showed ...

    I love the 1 stars - they really need to chill out.
    "It's only 5 minutes? What's the point? I don't have time to watch this! You should watch other 23 minute anime instead!"

    Anyway, haters aside, this is one of my favorite short anime so far. It's got a great story, the comedy is gold, and my only complaint is that it's only 3 episodes so far. I want more! Why can't time speed up

    A lot of fun compressed into a short episode
    The episodes are short but the classic-style RPG references and the raw humor gave me more laughs then I've gotten in full episodes of some shows. I would definitely say that it's worth a watch if you like any of the fan made parodies of classic anime that are floating around right now.

    Hmmmmm..............
    Well, the episodes are short but funny. The plot is this and the characters one dimensional. Not really anything good to say about this one other than it is mildly entertaining. Great for a work break. Might be hilarious if watched while stoned.

    Good for a few laughs
    While not the greatest anime (or even a very good one) it delivers exactly what one would expect. It is amusing, and obviously good for a laugh. Although the first episode was the least funny, there are already several funny one liners in the three episodes so far. It's biggest weakness is selection. It is very much a love or hate show, something some people think is fundamentally flawed in the ...
