Ep6 is another enjoyable episode. This show just keeps on quietly entertaining me with nice humor and good characters.

The series is growing on me. I went into it with some expectations, was thrown off by the gag timing pace - but its got a nice flavor to it as the characters are given some complexity outside the usual stereotypes.

Just finished episode 5 and I gotta say, I don't think I can really keep up with this show anymore. The character interactions in episode 5 were just so bland that it became irritating and the timing of the comedy was so far off the mark that it simply wasn't funny. These problems, combined with the fact that I've recently picked up Toradora!, a school life comedy that has managed to deliver both in the character department as well as the comedy, means that Hyakko is but a shell compared to Toradora! As it stands, Hyakko will also invite far too many comparisons to other series that are just flat-out better. Ichigo Mashimaro? Hidamari Sketch? Sketchbook? All of those three manage to beat this show by a large order of magnitude.

Seeing that I have an unhealthy number of shows on my plate this season, Hyakko gets the axe.

Anime Hyakko includes 13 episodes with only 6 episodes currently released. Episodes 01 through 05 have been subbed.

*13 EP are too short.I need more.....

Hyakko jokes need more timing and delivery. Some joke punchlines were off.

Right, I'll carry on watching and report if they get the hang of pace and timing. I've already dropped enough shows that Hyakko is fairly safe on my queue.
Though even I'll admit that it is "almost" "on the verge of" "nearly" a nice package of entertainment - I end up rooting for it to keep trying.

I dropped a bunch of shows already, close to dropping Index now, but its hanging on another week. Couple others I need to catch up on still, but this one I've been watching as soon as the subs come out. Definitely still enjoying this one.

Terrible OP, crappy animation, nice drawing, and great idea development. I've just loved this show.

Ep 1 does take my attention, Ep 2 set my expectation bar down to the level that i ended up really enjoying 3-4-5.

Seriously, it's not the best series of the season, but it's the most enjoyable to watch for my case. Once again realised what i value and what i enjoy sometime is not in the same line.

Waiting for sub of Ep 6

My favourite character up to this moment must be Torako, then Suzune, then others...

Spoiler for Ep 5, Karaoke and Zodiac:

Sengoku Shishimaru was that Torako's admirer's name too. Talk about beating you over the head with the Romance of Three Kingdoms period references. That name is just blatant. heh

The word that I use is "offbeat", both in terms of the timing (which works for me) and in terms of the characters and how they interact with me. Humor is indeed subjective, so I sorta find how they do things more engaging here than in, say, Toradora. I like both shows, but personally I prefer Hyakko better.

And to add to the above, I'd say that absurd comedy is more of Zetsubou Sensei/Shinbo comedies' cachet. Hyakko's comedy is, as BigN says, more on the offbeat path.

Me, I'm not really thrilled with the Hyakko's comedic execution and my preference comes closer to Shinbo's type of humor than the mega-slapstick that Hyakko's been employing. Doesn't mean that Hyakko doesn't have its moments, but they're still too few and far in between for me to want to continue further.

Well, I actually didn't even consider this series at the beginning of the season, but I was pleasantly surprised.
