One of the best anime(s) of this season. Comedy scenes were great and all the characters hold unique feature and make this anime a wonderful watch. I seriously gonna miss this anime, they should have adapted the entire manga into the anime. One of the best RomCom(s) I've ever watched!


This is definitely meant to be a replacement for The Quintessential Quintuplets, especially since it looks as though there will eventually be a full set of five girls tag-teaming the one guy. Though I wonder if it will get anywhere near as deep or emotional.
