Summary: Hanta slogs away the daylight shift as an employee at a packaging company and wastes his free time making prank videos with his friends for their online show. When his inspiration starts to run dry, he turns to tormenting his straitlaced manager for his share of the ad-sense money. He stakes his career on a handful of practical jokes, only to come out on the other side with his job and (most of) his pride intact. Turns out he’s not the only one who finds himself funny.
Recommendation: I love it when an AU manages to get the essence of a character even if you remove quicks and the like. I’m not one to find practical jokes funny really, but Iida makes a fantastic ‘straight man’ I can see why Hanta would not be able to resist.
