Pat King from Animefringe commends the manga for its "excellent parody of the manga industry" and its artwork that "would be right at home in classic issues of Mad Magazine". Johanna Draper Carlson from Comics Worth Reading comments on the "vulgar but funny" adult contents of the manga with its "nudity and various scatological gags". Carlos Santos commends the manga for its "rundown of every major genre, by demographic" and praises the manga above other "How-to Art" books.
