A short (11 minute) comedy about a toilet seat designer who gains super powers but has his appearance drastically altered.
11 minutes shouldn’t feel that long, should it? And yet, as I watched this show, I just kept thinking how every joke and every punchline was both incredibly obvious, and had been used in so many other anime (usually put to better purpose), and how they are using frantic pace to make the very average dialogue seem in some way quirky or interesting. As you may have guessed I didn’t much like this. That isn’t saying much though. I’m not really into comedy and self-aware comedy focussed on super-heroes is becoming one of my least favourite things to endure so obviously I was never the intended audience for this show. Still, even if I was into comedy, I just feel that this all just felt a bit lazy.
Overall opinion – probably dropped.
