Kamen no Maid Guy: (Ended) Countdown Continues

This is a series that really doesn't provide anything other than something to be laughed at. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Once a while, it's nice to have a series like this to lighten up your mind. In the past, the only reason I disliked certain pure mindless comedies is that they try to stuff comedies down my throat, regardless you like it or not. Finally, Gonzo manage to come up with a comedy that I like.

One thing to note is that the story is nowhere near the end. The countdown is far from over. This is merely a season break. I expect it to make a full return sometime soon. (Although this could also be a tactic to sell more manga, if they don't make another series)
Final scoreboard (out of 5):

Drama: N/A
Comedy: 4.5 (Blatant and subtle at the same time, nicely done)
Action: 4 (Not its focus, but for what it has, it's pretty good)
Art/Animation: 3.5 (Slightly simplified style, not quite my favorite)
Sound/Music: 4 (Good sound effect)
Character: 4 (As a mindless comedy, they developed the characters quite well)
Plot: N/A
Ending: N/A

Re-watch value: 1 (I don't think there is a need to watch it more than once)

Overall (not average): 4 (One of the better comedies produced by Gonzo)

Recommendation: Sometimes a mindless comedy is nice to lighten up the mood. This is exactly it. Don't expect to get anything other than a good laugh out if it, if you do, you'll be disappointed.
