Atrocious art style but loved the opening songs
24 March 2019 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

So since there is no page for the 2014 version of Laughing Salesmen, sure I might as well add that here onto this page and involving the original version as well. I found out about this anime thanks to AnimeAmerica who suggested this on their video regarding "TOP 10 ANIME DEALS WITH THE DEVIL". Unfortunately the reaction I had wasn't good because I was fairly disappointed because mostly the awful art style and found the story was trying hard to be scary when it really wasn't. In fact it was rather boring........

I gotta say even if i hate the anime in both years, I effing loved the opening songs! The original one was upbeat while the 2014 version was pretty catchy.

If you don't mind the stupid art style and like the attempted "being scary" fiesco, then this ones for you dudes!
