Why It Rocks
- Great animation.
- Amazing comedy. All of the comedy comes from the hilarious characters and the different fetishes they have. For example, Tado Sado is a masochist, Mio Isurugi is a sadist, Tado's close friend Tatsukichi Hayama is a cross-dresser, Tado's sister and mother have an incest problem, and the school nurse, enjoys dressing other people up in cosplay and taking pictures of them.
- Good voice acting in both sub and dub.
- To balance out the comedy are lots of dramatic moments which make you feel like these characters actually are developing a deep, emotional connection with each other.
- Very appealing art style and character designs.
