Reviews

Cravenus

"Worse English speaking American dominatrix ever. Other than that, the (most) interesting premise seems like an interesting watch."

Ledithe

"It's funny from the point of a Canadian watching, but I'm not sure how will it could for anyone else. It seemed like typical shoujo, and I think that, given the titles of each episode, I could predict the script of each show until the end. I f the humour can stay original, it would be worth watching but I'm not sure it would be enough to keep me coming back."

"it's ok. imaginative premise executed with numerous clichés."

Doug

"Just pop a Canadian guy into a Japanese girl's body, then maximize the lowbrow humour. That the perfect recipe for my idea of mindless fun."

Vagi-kami

"Wow. pretty terrible. About the only redeeming quality was the scene they try to speak English. A show where a Japanese figure skater is possessed buy a Canadian ghost. Funny if you're a Canadian for a bit; but ultimately the show lacks any kind of real potential."

"This is the first time I've seen a Canadian accurately portrayed in an anime. (I mean he's really awesome.)"

Miku

"I wasn't that interested at first but once the Canadian ghost appeared it became amusing. He makes the show."

Michael Eh?

"For most sports animes, this takes a different twist by making it a comedy. The skewed portrayals of foreigners like arrogant loosely dressed Amercian figure skater with her racist view of people. The Canadian ghost, Peter Pamps seem more human and the other characters in this show combined. However, like most sports animes, the underdog struggles to eventual win in the end. Just for this show, it might be the most that lead character could get is her sanity ... if she's lucky."
