PG-13 for slightly adult themes; official series website (manga)
A teenage playboy is stuck taking care of a little girl and ends up loving her oh so much. Although the premise is one that walks the razor-thin “works awesome/works terribly” line, the execution in this show made me gag. Weak animation, an excess of exceedingly annoying voice-acting, flat/trite characters, and the icing on the cake: some of the worst animation directing I’ve ever seen. It’s bad enough that this show is flat and annoying, but with directing that’s both boring and awkward, we have a flat-annoying show at a crawling pace. YES! The only thing I found redeeming about the anime (after taking two tries to get through the first episode) is that the closing theme sounds kinda cool if sped up. I’ve never read the manga, but it would take a pretty serious bribe to get me to try it.
Initial Impression: Don’t bother with this series if you love yourself and all that is good. (Lianne)
