Great show, but not for everyone
13 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised that I liked this show but I have a feeling I like it for completely different reasons than most. Essentially, the only premise that can be mentioned is the protagonist's obsession with being a hero despite not having any special powers or a firm grasp on reality... so it would seem.

What hooked me on this show was all of the subtle nuance humor that got be busting a gut completely out of left field. They've mastered the anti-climax in the scripts, and it makes the show profoundly entertaining. It will keep you watching in marathons, which is a hallmark of a great show in my opinion.

The premise isn't at all enticing in my view, but the execution was done well enough that I endure the repetitiveness of certain character traits and monologues because the surprise humor is just that good.

Best of all, it's available for free on cruchyroll, a Playstation 3 free service (no affiliation or subscription by the author of this review)
