From MAL


In the series, Light and Yomi are spending their daily lives happily playing video games. One night when everyone else is asleep, Light receives an invitation from Alpha, a messenger for someone named King. Light and Yomi are then sucked into another world, where they must undertake a quest to rescue Princess Melody from the demon lord. Light thinks this must be his destiny, while Yomi thinks it's kind of annoying. They form a party with Alpha to start their quest. Alpha as it turns out is an AI robot, and he has a program that allows them to raise their levels while slowly continuing their adventure.


Simulcast on Mondays 6:30pm EST, http://www.crunchyroll.com/gdgd-mens-party

I don't expect a lot of conversation on this one, but meh.

This is a "spinoff" of gdgd Fairies, http://www.crunchyroll.com/gdgd-fairies. If you're not familiar with the show, it is referential humor. In this new version, the voice actors are experienced with plenty of other credits behind them. At 10 minutes long, the first 75% is a "story" about three people transported to a video game universe where they must save the princess. The remaining time is spent with the male VAs improvising over some nonsensical video clip.

So far, episode two, the best was the reference to the Nintendo Switch, and the VA's assumption that it'll be bleeped. Surprised that it wasn't.

I'm a bit disappointed that the episode length is shorter than gdgd Fairies.

It's only two people, though. Alpha is part of the "game", supposedly.

The chemistry between the VAs is really fun. Definitely sound like BFFs sitting around ad-libbing a homemade YouTube video. That alone had me laughing.

Light doing the Man in Black skit, complaining about the wife tossing his figures... a "middle school student" came up with that?

This format can be slow until the cast gets comfortable with each other, snowballing in funny from there. But Light and Alpha's VAs are ready to go from the start, and Yomi should be caught up soon.

Anyone know what this genre of show is even called? There's a bunch of them.

I didn't think I'd like this or think it was funny.

But I do and I do.

i <3 the original gdgd, so i was excited for this but i was a little skeptical of a mostly male cast (i really prefer female characters generally and all female cast is ideal for me).

this is pretty consistently funny tho. thumbs up!

Bet OPM and BNHA have high Hero insurance premiums?

Hime! Hime! Hime!


The list of "Princess Rescue" stipulations grows:
The Hero cannot have a life before rescuing said Princess. (no wife, no kids, no old man smell, no late twenties... )

The princess is losing it, though. She's about to become the final boss.

Right?! Delays caused by the minigames are just boosting the eventual rampage.

They've kind of lost steam, but then the preview.

To compare it to gdgd Fairies, the unrelated predecessor show, there will be good episodes and some OK episodes.
