Yeah I barely made it through the first several eps and more of just had it on while I played games. The 2nd half I enjoyed more as it focused more on Miyako and managed to somewhat expand the other 3 into almost characters instead of foils or repeated one-off jokes. The jokes get better too from all involved parties over time.
And I honestly don't even get the point of the existence of the 2 lesbian ones, nothing they did was very interesting unless you're some kind of outrageous homolust fan like the director that adapted aria. There was an attempt at a shtick but every attempt kind of failed to deliver a full joke.
With manga though, when material improves I feel like it's easier to accept the bad part from less sunk time. This show really has some issues, but I guess I enjoyed it a bit. https://youtu.be/lPbsD_Uki5k
