Basically the best show there is (at least for me)
14 August 2014 | by dfgremnantsSee all my reviews

The Hero Yoshihiko, I am referring to both Season 1 and Season 2. It's a fun, highly entertaining show which pretends it's in some RPG, we have a Hero, a warrior, a wizard and flat patty. (whom i find cute and adoring). The acting is TOP notch, the comedy routines are excellent. It's just fun to watch and I can't wait for another season.

Even the Soundtrack is interesting, I am specially found of ED from Season 2, the soft uplifting music is just great. I should say that Season 1 looks low budget but Season 2 is more polished, the effects are basic yet workable.

If you enjoy playing RPG or ever played Dragon Quest, Skyrim you will most definitely love this. Highly recommended.
