Hello Fellow Readers,

This manga was okay. I expected it to be filled with funny and silly moments, which it was but each story just felt so short. Each story just felt random, and only a few connected together. I think the real problem was I didn't feel there was an overarching story in this. This isn't a bad thing really, but I guess I just wanted more. 

There are stories that really made me laugh however, and I did enjoy the manga. I think I will read the next volume to see if it continues this way or if it delves into a story I can follow.
