Slightly entertaining, but mainly dissapointing.

"Summary: This series is basically about Kazuki's journey from the life of a boring Japanese high school student into a Doujinshi Otaku. Kazuki decides to write manga for his friend Taishi, who plans to take over the world, but what he doesn't know is that his new hobby is upsetting his friend Mizuki. Comic Party is filled with several sub-plots such as raising money, shopping for "research" to write manga, and convention adventures.
The animation is very nice, and the first couple of episodes kept my interest.
This show gets old very fast. The first couple of episodes got a few chuckles from me, but after the initial plot was set up the entire show went downhill. It is repetative, shows no character development, and contains many filler episodes. If you like fast paced anime, this definately isn't for you.
Overall, nice appearance. Comes in a sturdy presentable box,
containing four dvds, each with reversable covers.
Nice package and appearance, but a very slow paced, lacking anime with nothing but a few chuckles to offer."
Depends what you like

"If you are looking for a fast paced shounen style adventure, hit the back button now don't bother. I personally like this series because I can relate to the characters. Kazuki's journey as an artist in the doujinshi world is bumpy and full of "life lessons" according to his sadist friend taishi, which is fully bourn out in this series.
I personally like the manga better, but I still enjoyed this series. If you like to draw (anime, manga), this series may inspire you, or scare you away, it just depends on you. Me personally, my fingers start twitching before the half point of each episode, and it really makes me want to draw.
My only complaint is when kazuki fails at comic party, they totally overkill the angstyness, and he turns into a b!tchy little anikin until his friends drag him from apathy, and inspire him again."
