Don't Even Bother

by

This went right from the box to the trash. My only regret is that I was away in college and the return limit expired by the time I got back home.

This series leaves much to be desired; the story is poorly written and has a simple plot: Najimi is a young girl with hopes of drawing manga however she can't draw to save her life. One day her friend, Tsuyuri, who makes a lot of money drawing doujinshi (unprofessional self printed manga) convinces her to dive into the world of doujin in hopes of making it big and raking in the cash. Along the way she realizes what a challenge it is to actually create manga people would want to read and decides to try her hand creating the best hentai doujinshi. Centered around her attempts of making hentai manga, are awkward characters, and plain cliché situations that are bundled with one liner jokes, typical of 4 panel manga, however, the jokes are so awkward for such a normal situation that the entire scene makes absolutely no sense. To even label this comedy is a concept I cannot understand. The episodes are a total of about 5 minutes, and there is absolutely no character development. RightStuf should pay you to take this out of their warehouse and into the nearest plastic recycling facility.

Not a "Complete" set

by

While this set in complete in English, it turns out there are actually 6 volumes of the manga, so 5 and 6 were not localized.

However overall this series is funny, and some artists can relate to the trials that Najimi has to go though to be a better artist, as well as how some artists, cut corners.

The only drawback to the whole series is that it's set up for a seinen otaku crowd, so of course there's a lolicon (pedophile), they draw hentai, and sexual jokes abound. However if you can overlook Sora and Justice the series isn't so horrible.

It'd be better to read the manga than watch the anime

by

I watched this series halfway and had to give up.

The voice acting was too high pitched and didn't match how I felt the characters should have sounded.
The animation/art was very bland and dated.
The plot basically followed the manga, but poorly and represented the manga series horribly.
