The show has been panned by Mexican viewers and critics. The show lacks of proper acting, writing and directing. Some talk shows have criticized the corny effects and acting of the show, as well as the lack of research the show's writers had put into for episodes dealing with certain social groups that some episodes focus on (Emos, goths, anime fans).
An example is the episode "Cosplay salvemos al mundo" which focuses on a girl called "Namiko-moon", who believes she is an anime character and her mother's struggle to understand her, as well as the anime community. The show has been widely panned on the Internet for its poor interpretation of the anime community, as well as the story writing.
