The “unorthodox hard surreal gag” comedy centers around the narcissistic (narushi na) Hagito and the masochistic (domazo na) Kei. Together they are “Narudoma.”
It’s interesting to see more web manga to be adapted into an anime! If you like Senyuu., you might like Nambaka. And if you’re a fan of the absurdity of Plastic Nee-san, you might like Super Short Comics.
