It's full of very tall people, lots of talking, a fair amount of humour and it doesn't resolve the story arc in the first series. In fact it just ambles along.

EDIT: And the lead character does need a slap.

So I'm guessing it's not worth watching?

I watched the first episode last night. I was too tired at the time to watch more but I agree that the lead character needs a slap. he annoyed me a little. This may increade as the series goes along.

I'm now up to spisode 15 and Yes the main character is still really annoying but I agree that it's an enjoyable show. It does amble along a bit but that's find for me because I don't have time to watch them all at once. Each story resolves itself by the end, great for jumping in and out.

One thing though, I want Yuko's wardrope. ^_^

You'd have to become incredibly tall, skinny and have enormous breasts.

He's harmless and the cast around him take the edge off. Especially the Pipefox.

I've watched the first 3 episodes over the last few days and currently waiting for the fourth one to load. Anyway it’s been good so far, although the unusual lanky character designs take a while to get used to. You’re dead right about the main guy needing a slap but that’s hardly unusual in an anime, is it?
