Reaction to it on 2ch thread
(“Kyoumo Yarareyaku” arranges comments of 2ch thread to summery. I pick up interesting comments of them and translate them, arranging them to understandable to foreigner. But it may be not correct translation.)
This is just that Yunocchi is costumed.
Madocchi will come January!!!!!!!!!!!!
This character design is gross.
Finally the anime that will gain supremacy in the Winter season has come.
This is a character design smells of trashy work. I can predict so from only smell.
Madocchi’s aura has a SSS level. The other anime are no match for it.
What is this fake “Hidamari”.
Aoi is in season now.
