Doesn't look anywhere near as bad KnJ.

It sucks when CR can't start simulcasting stuff right when they air instead of when its already several episodes into its run.

It's actually more like Minami-ke, except it isn't funny.

Not really. It's all cartoon violence and bathroom humor, and portraying kids as the vicious little bastards they really are.

It's not a good show by any means, though.

The humor is subjective at best, so it really falls under the YMMV scope. I find it very funny of a show, but others don't.

Ugh, not a fan of the character design. They look like chipmunks or something. That fight in episode 1 is funny but its a "meh" series overall.

I have to say, this has some of the funniest gross-out humor I've seen in anime in awhile. Even if it is completely low brow, I still find a lot of it funny. Anime smile + sweatdrop

Though I thought otaku were more into the 'purity' of little girls instead of the fact that they talk about piss and s*** all the time. I'm curious to see how it goes over with them.

Great now that it's streaming I can catch it. As this was one of the titles mentioned in the Summer Previews. Wink

If you didn't want to come off sounding stupid, you probably should've actually researched the show a bit. None of the girls want to have sex with their teacher, nor does he with them. There isn't even any fanservice, it's simply a comedy.

Uh? You telling me karate girl wasn't sexualized yet? I doubt you'll ever see an anime in this category with no fanservice.
Anyway, episode 2 sucked. They tried to use the same dirty joke over and over for a few minutes.
Beginning of episode 3 nearly made me drop it, but it got better towards the end.
Good thing CR picked it up. I'd hate to feel obligated to buy this thing if it ever came out in North America (by that I mean no chance any UK company will get it).

There are a few sexual references here in there, but it's not aimed at the girls. In one chapter of the manga the karate girl (I think that's who is) spoiler[ draws a life size picture of G-cup breasts instead of her teacher for art class.] What makes it funnier is that spoiler[ while the teacher does not approve of it, the principal of the school does claiming it to be the best drawing of breasts he has ever seen.]

By fanservice I mean they didn't actually show her in any sort of state of undress. spoiler[She said she wasn't wearing panties, but you couldn't tell just by looking.]

This isn't exactly new. That's happened many times for CR. I think like at least one show every season comes out later than it should. Most recently with Giant Killing and LilPri.

It's all well and fine to do comedy, but there some things you just don't do. Or at the bare minimum, not with a cast that looks to be under the age of 5.

I can't imagine this ever being licensed anywhere, but hey, if it is licensed, it's mostly likely going to be Media Blasters or some other company.

What anyone watches is their own business. So while this series may not be like that I am not going to watch it.

But this would be a much different story if they were in college or so.
