    This anime is shitpost supreme. Fooled me into thinking I loaded the wrong file at the start, bombarded me with a whole bunch of references to make my head spin, then trolled me again after the first half.

    It kinda reminds me of Robot Chicken and even that one's a shitpost, so I think I'm halfway right. Stick with the ep 'till the end if you're going to watch it, you're not going to regret it.

    Lel, they kidnapped the Russian kid in the PV.

    If they shit on One Punch, I'll pay my respects.

    AOTY found.

    It seems to have really divided people, but I liked it a lot, even if many of the references passed me by.

    I personally really liked it. It's probably not a good anime to go into without knowing at least a little bit about the manga. I hear it's divided people up though and not everyone liked or really got it.

    lol a lot of the fun's in how batshit absurd the skits can get. Good point about the manga. I think it'd be easier to have more fun with the strips if you can't get on board the anime.
