The English language adaptation of Kyō no Kerberos has received reviews from various notable sources. Richard Gutierrez from The Fandom Post said that he thought the three girls inhabiting the same body concept was initially promising, but was disappointed on how it ended there with the usual stereotypical themes/traits. Gutierrez cites manga series such as Ranma ½, and Dragon Ball for similarities, but goes on to say that the experience could be new to someone not familiar with the hinted references.
