the main affection of this series to me is character Ifurita Many dislike her compare to the OVA Ifurita and call her all sort of cruel names (MEANY!!!)....however, after relating to the extremely sad/sorrowful OVA character, this one really comes as a nice and comforting breeze. The..well..."not so serious" Ifurita that doesn't come scowling around Makoto like the majority, instead she seems happy with her lot and smiles a lot. Apart from the very evil purpose she was created, this compassionate, cheerful, and full of charity Ifurita is a character I'd like to become.
Jinnai in this one is supposedly more funny too.
