Comment: Since this is a freshman seminar, there are no exams or assignments. You just watch anime and discuss your opinions on it. At the end of the year, he treats the class to dinner! I would definitely recommend this class, as it is very fun, low stress, and it's a great way to get to know a professor in an intimate setting.

Comment: Firstly, the course description lies; the course was mostly focused on female sexuality. The course content was interesting, but the lectures and course readings were long and tedious. The essays weren't too bad, but it was much less interesting than expected. Professor O'Neill isn't much of a lecturer, but he's good when it comes to fostering class discussions.
