Acchi Kocchi episode 1

A 4-koma adaptation about a bunch of high schoolers doing absolutely nothing. So would you believe me when I said this was way better than expected and flipped my world view, bringing on what could potentially be the second coming of Azuman-pfft no, Acchi Kocchi is hideously boring.
