Holy Cow! Someone subbed all of Master of Epic! I'm downloading it now... I want to know what becomes of the Waragecha Five, or whatever they were called.
It's particularly of interest to me because Kaneda Tomoko is one of the most important voices in it. ...and I don't think she's working any more, sob...
UPDATE: Why was I so enthused about this before? Man, it's terrible.

Now I'm wondering, myself.
It dragged. I got about halfway through the second ep thistime and gave up on it after I realized I was madly skipping looking for anything good.
The Waragecha Five are the best thing in the show, but they're not a very big part of it. And they're pretty much a one-trick pony.
The second best thing in the show is the short guy with the funny ears and Krillin's voice, especially when he's doing the manzai thing with the tall woman with Bulma's voice.
But they're not enough to save it.

Yeah, it DOES drag, which is death for a show made out of random comedy clips. They only have half as many jokes as they really need and drawing out the ones they do have spreads the humor too thin. Production values aren't particularly good either.
Not that it's a terrible concept. Lucky Star ran a few jokes out of the MMO genre (especially in the OAV, where Konata, Kuroi, Tsukasa, and Kagami form a party...) I don't think anyone else has done a humorous take on it, though. Ah, if only I could draw...

(note: Pete and discovered a little over a year ago that whenever one of us likes a show, almost invariably the other dislikes it. The sole case where we both liked it is Azumanga Daioh)
