bkub's legend is recognized
20 February 2018 | by burndarklingSee all my reviews

I've followed the manga for a while now, since it's rise to fame in boards that discuss manga and anime, as majority of people know it's quite a meme. However, the anime is a faithful adaptation to the manga and seems like the producers have fun creating and starring in the production of this anime which translates well to the amazing visuals in store from the opening to the ending, as well as the numerous songs and VA's that are in play all being skilled. My only complaint would be the length however it's purpose as a short anime makes sense and they don't seem like they ever do filler episodes, most jokes fall flat to viewers due to not getting the reference but I'd chalk that up to viewer preference. This anime's not for everyone, but it was a hit for me.
