EDIT 2018:

The fourth season (Hero) is not as well animated or rendered as earlier seasons. Quite a large step backwards in quality as far as the animation is concerned. I suppose the first two seasons are Classic. It's a shame the animation suffers very noticeably in the latest season.

I'm 36, and have a doctorate. I also have a knight elf mohawk,am covered in tattoos, and I'm a university lecturer.

The dialogue in this anime is perfect. This is exactly the way that my friends and I talk to each other at home (boys and girls). Everyone is a sordid pervert, which is completely normal if that is what your friends are like too.

I've seen many anime, favourites including Fist of the North Star, Monster, Parasyte: The Maxim, Death Note, GTO, Code Geass, Samurai Jack, Fate/Zero, etc. This is one of the best I've seen.

The characters are fun and interesting and lighthearted, so I always feel happy and gleeful when I watch it. The animation is good,and the banter is otherworldly. I don't think the banter in many anime reach this standard. The innuendos are slightly more subtle that those my friends and I enjoy drinking beer outside after work on a Friday, which is smart.

Of course, if you like boobs and hot females; you will love this. It's hilarious to see the excitement the male characters feel when see a someone hot, in this animation. It's just like real life was when one was younger. To be honest, the only difference with getting older (I'm 34) is that you kind of have to act somewhat more maturely. Mind you, as we get older, we certainly don't suffer from the embarrassment or lack of self-confidence experienced by these characters.

You could certainly pick holes in this anime, but I think they made a great job of creating something that has a great deal of truth to it.

As a person who doesn't believe in the supernatural (Gods, Devils, Jesuses, etc) I particularly like the stance that the devils are good and the angels are evil. There's far too much television and film based around Christian mythology, which is irritating. It seems like a cop-out most of the time, because we've had and still have much richer creative ideas than those conceived by the individuals whose literature formed the bible. Nevertheless, this fresh take on Christian mythology is refreshing.

If you consider yourself a non-sexual, or strongly feminist or religious person; I would advice watching this, if only so that I can imagine you cringing at ideas and actions that mirror real life; but are so alien to you that you abhor them.
