Deca-Dence Series Review

An original anime from a studio that doesn't have much of a history and nothing I've actually watched (having not watched Youjo Senki), Deca-Dence deserves far more than its 7.52 score on MAL. While not perfect by any means, this one was a rare and somewhat unexpected treat.
