| For me one of the best animes of all time
I chose to wrote this review because most others I saw were just commenting on the humor.

This anime is very sexist. It crosses a lot of lines. But it is done in such an extreme way that you can't honestly think this is done without a winking eye. More interestingly, the women in this series represent different types of women in Japanese society, stereotyped to a caricature, and thus shows the sad gender roles in modern Japan. You can still die laughing if your humor knows no political boundaries.

This anime is very philosophical. Kintaro is an almost Buddha-like figure. Though this aspect, as everything else, is way over the top, Kintaro inspired me a lot during my youth, to the point that I chose to cycle through Japan, which I did two years ago.

But really, not to forget, this anime is ridiculously funny. I rarely spend so much time laughing to the point I can't breathe, even though I've seen all episodes for about ten times now.

I recommend this to any one who can laugh about themselves, who is interested in Japanese culture, or who's looking for some inspiration on how to lead his life.
