Glad you guys kept this thread going on for so long because I finally got off my ass and tried the first episode and am thoroughly impressed. Jokes, timing/pacing, certain quirks they give to how the characters move, scene changes, etc. None of that seemed half-assed and even the animation quality was far better than I had expected it to be. Looking at the staff listing, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the director of Yuru Yuri also directed the two Mitsudomoe seasons, which, despite some subpar episodes starting out, ended up being one of the most enjoyable and the sole anime I was following in two otherwise boring seasons. I think I originally avoided watching this show because I thought the character designs in one of the the promotional pics included in the summer chart listed looked too derpy, but watching an entire episode has really made me like how round the eyes are. So thanks again, brohnos, for not making me overlook a pretty good anime just like you guys did with Milky Holmes.
