Can you really even trust anything in these magazines?

It's good sometimes, shit other times.

Some faggot reviewer said that My Little Pony's humor was better than Ika Musume

>>101545682
Why would they even bring that show up? Like, in what context?
>>
>>101545924
It was in a review of Ika Musume, they were talking about the humor and how it was similar to My Little Pony, but apparently MLP did it better. I have no fucking clue, but I still have that issue in my bathroom.
