To be honest, this show was very underrated. It started out very boring and silly at first but it really grows to quite the show at the end. One of the underrated titles last fall and nice to see it getting a special at least.

Not where the cash flows: Japan.

It started boring and silly, and that's how it ended.

I thought it was underrated too. I think a lot of people got turned down from the cutesy aspect but I kept watching for the hilarious adult moments. I.e.: nipple teacher, bondage prince, I-can-only-tell-your-true-identity-through-the-way-your-boobs-feel, etc.

Dirty jokes-the stereotypical harem that every series now=kinda refreshing.


@egoist, That's what makes a show underrated....it not being mainstream and not having money. Pft, I sound like hipster.

What exactly are you talking about? Check.
This show is cashing in a lot more than 2 shows (and many others) vastly better - Shiki, and LOL Heroes.
Underrated? Well, compared to K-ON! yes.

From what I can remember, Milky sold about 7k combined DVD/BD copies for the first volume. That's pretty dern good and in no means underrated in terms of monetary gain (unlike Shiki). In fact you can check this link out and you can see it outperformed practically everything other than the big budget and fujoshi-targeted shows.

That said, I watched 2 episodes and the only thing I enjoyed was the first 5 or so minutes of the first episode where the girls each have their "toys" (powers) and were doing some campy fighting.

However, once they lost their "toys" I knew they would spend the entire series trying to get them back and thus I lost all interest.
