Pros and Cons-


There is a lot to learns and not to mention this is genuinely amusing content with a small no of episodes with a single season. You don’t have to commit like one piece and other big series in the first place. If you are a big Otaku you can do this in a day then.


If you watch anime in a private place and have a well-working headphone you are safe to go. As this anime makes its humor mostly through misunderstandings and Male and female nudity it’s not suggested to watch this anime while traveling and in the public. Well if you are an Elite one Otaku you won’t mind these trivial things in the first place
