1st time watching anime since Yugioh aired on 4kids. [A long time] I was so out of touch with eastern media, I actually thought the MC was going to get killed by the truck. Completely ignorant of the Truck-kun cliche.
Binged watched it twice in a row, censored.
1st time>WTF Japan!?
2nd time>Everything is just so cute, sexy, funny, and heartwarming. Japan, pls I don't want to feel this way about these cartoons.
Immediately went and found uncensored version, binged for a 3rd time>Irreversible addiction rooted, I love it. Goddam it Japan.
It was such a whirlwind of mixed emotions the series earned my respect. So, to answer the question, never did.Of all things, MM was somehow the thing that lead me to 4chan.
