Truth be told, I did find it a little bit corny, but I still really enjoyed it.
I think that a good deal of the corniness I saw may have been due to the English translation. If I ever get a chance to watch it again with subtitles instead of dubs then maybe I'll see.
I really loved little Duck, she was so cute and sweet, then they introduced Uzura and I about died from sweetness overload. I also got to say I really loved Fakir. He pretty much rocked.
I actually really wish there was a sequel. I want to know what happens to poor little Duck. Does she ever become a girl again?
