You have 10 seconds to explain why you aren't watching Hoozuki no Reitetsu.
Spoiler: you can't
Because I got a paper to write. I can watch it later.
I'm not japanese enough to even understand what's happening let alone why it is supposed to be funny.
I've got to admit that I was not expecting to like this show at all, but it's been pretty good. Very much in the vein of other recent anime where all the characters are adults, like Servant x Service, for instance.
please tell me that's a female and not a tranny
Really? It's just office humor. If you liked Servant x Service, you would like this.
Dropped it after the third episode because it wasn't funny at all.
Now I know not to pick it up.
You guys have never been sitting in a cafeteria or lunch room, seen your boss coming toward your table with his lunch, and groaned at the thought of having to put up with his bullshit for the next 10-20 minutes?
I think they mean that there's a lot of references to eastern folklore, but most should be familiar to anyone who isn't a complete newfag, and it's not really important for understanding the humor anyway. Then again, humor is always hit and miss since people have so different taste in it.
The episode with visiting Satan from Europe wasn't funny, but the rest of the skits have been pretty good. I think in any culture, comedy is going to be hit-or-miss. I'm just glad to having something to watch that doesn't a) take place in a Japanese high school, and (not "or") b) doesn't have any moe female characters.
I don't mind "moe characters" or high school settings, but I'll agree that some variation is always nice, and this show fills that role well.
