Awesome Show
28 November 2017 | by sujansingha-46267See all my reviews

I wish I can give 100 rating this show is the by far the best comedy show you will see <3 i still can't believe this show ended so quickly : ( perfect show, there are some emotional moments in the last episodes which made me cry like a baby the acting is awesome by far the best acting The comedy is a mixture of situation comedy, that arises from the whole fact of 27-years old pretending to be a 17-years old, and slapstick. The episodes are reasonably well balanced, but some episodes are more drama oriented than others and all in all, the series is a pleasant experience despite I have clear gap in my understatement of Japanese culture.
