In the comments of the post, the fans expressed that they also shared this feeling that Morikawa-sensei had had, as they did not fully understand what this new work was about and that it was just a lot of crazy things together, but that they also found it very funny. In this context, they highlighted the theme of the deer in the anime and the jokes that revolved around them, such as the cookies, and where some mentioned that as shown in the anime, when they were children they were also curious to try these cookies and that the effect has a “very bad” taste.

On the other hand, they were also excited to see how the plot of this anime would progress and as some mentioned if it really had a plot or if it would just be a deer girl doing crazy things. Finally, there were fans who simply commented that this first episode had been enough for them and that they would not follow it anymore, as it was too chaotic, but that in the future they leave open the possibility of maybe watching it someday.
