Feel good anime that will make u smile
23 January 2015 | by bakutasexy357See all my reviews

When i stumbled upon this anime i didn't expect much of it since it was new and relatively unknown.But now,after i watched it,i am so glad that i found it.I had some spare time so i decided to watch it on weekend,but that plan was ruined because i ended watching it on a Friday night,a 12 episode marathon.This is a feel good anime that gets u hooked from episode one.Animation is quite good,and characters are extremely likable.I was smiling the whole way through,and there were loads of things in this anime that reminded me of my childhood.The story is described well in summary,so i won't repeat that.I would recommend this anime to all,and believe me u wont regret watching it.
