  • Unexpectedly Hits the feels
    I was just scrolling down for free anime to watch.
    I stumbled upon Punch Line and when i watched ep 1 i just had no idea what to expect, nor why i decided to watch ep2. Somehow i survived until ep 5 when the show started showing its true colors. This is the type of anime which has a few generic looking episodes but server a far greater purpose in the ending since you are now part of the gang and ...

  • bad start, really awesome twist, meh ending
    This show isn't amazing, but it isn't as bad as the first several episodes will lead you to believe at first glance.
    .
    Overall it's a decent show, but I think the complicated plot got away from the writers. The beginning comes off as bad, but also strange. Due to the underlying twist the viewer is given very limited info, and what is given doesn't seem all that important at first glance, and ...

  • Really Exceeds Expectations
    Between the description and preconceived notions I had about this anime, I really wasn't expecting much. Coming from the studio it came from, I decided to give it a chance and it really exceeded all expectations and destroyed the notion that is was nothing more than a fan-service-filled show; the characters and action and whole premise were fantastic! Sure the comedic background and secret to the ...

  • 11/10 would watch again
    What can I say. It was fantastic. I went in thinking it might just be a silly harem anime that would be just good enough to pass the time. But its not that what so ever and it has so many good twists and turns and the characters are all really great. It is a must watch.

  • Mixed Reviews End up with Weird Rating
    So clearly there are some mixed reviews about this anime. Without spoiling anything, the ending has a twist you don't expect and it will either leave you really happy or really sad depending on the type of person you are. Overall, this anime is different from the rest and that's what makes it 5 star worthy. Anyone can follow the same mainstream plot line and make an okay anime, but its something ...

  • A bit strange, be definitely worth watching it at least once.
    PUNCH LINE is one of those original works that seems to be so strange that it makes it as good entertainment. The first couple of episodes might seems super strange at first, but as the story moves on during the 12 episodes, you get to learn what's actually happening and why event were so strange initially.

    The series does haven its downside and cliche, but it's still really good. The ...

  • Deceptively intriguing mystery adventure
    You may have seen this show around, and discarded it for being a fan-service-y pile of gratuitous ecchi. If this was your first impression, I don't blame you. However, given the proper attention, Punch Line will keep you on the edge of your seat until episode 12. Yes, it's ridiculous, even a bit stupid sometimes, but Punch Line is a fun, surprisingly emotional trip down the weirdest parts of ...

  • It may be a masterpiece hidden behind ecchi content.
    Don't get fooled by all those ecchi moments, the show may be like this at first and it can be really confusing at some moments but you will understand everything by the end and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

    In my opinion it is a hidden gem, hidden behind panty shots.

    I won't say anything more.
    You just have to experience it

    Do yourself a favor.
    Best enjoyed if you watch this without reading absolutely anything about it. Reading anything will certainly reduce your enjoyment of this series.

    This show is best enjoyed as an "raw" experience, without opinion of others interfering with your judgment. Also, some plot devices this show use may seem like cliche at first but you're out for a surprise if you don't spoil and keep watching.
