Why didn't this sell more?

I thought it was decent to good with potential
>>
It started out good then it got awful when the little fox and that boring guy showed up.
>>
Tons of wasted potential.

The lack of an overall plot, like actually doing something with Gin's missing partner was pretty bad.

Too many characters in too little time, Gin and Saeki are the only ones who are somewhat developed.

Saturo and Haru aren't likeable as they're only flat characters broken ace and annoying brat works only if they begin to change, which they didn't do.

Saekis two friends were okay, but shit got cluttered with useless and unmemorable side characters when they started having boyfriends who suddenly got dragged into the whole thing.

The moments where they focused on Gin and Saeki were the only really good moments and they are enough to make the show decent, but there is so much wasted potential
>>
People dismissed it as furry shit
>>
It got out-Iyashikei'd by NNB. The Japanese can only take so much healing in one go.
>>
The same reason people don't buy vanilla ice cream more.

The pacing was absolutely wretched. The dialog was stilted and felt very unnatural. Characters weren't likable.

The premise was very promising, and the design was nice, but all that potential was squandered.
>>
>>100430965
But vanilla is my favorite flavor.

I still didn't care for Gingitsune. The main reasons as to why have already been enumerated on in previous posts so I won't belabor the point.

the problem is THE TWO MAIN CHARACTERS WERE CAST ASIDE FOR THE WHOLE SHOW WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WORST GIRL'S DRIVER HOW CAN A STORYBOARD TEAM FUCK UP THIS BADLY

>The lack of an overall plot, like actually doing something with Gin's missing partner was pretty bad.
I disagree, I loved the cozy SoL atmosphere of these show and would hated for it to make place for the inevitable drama based on Gins and his partners backstory.

>Too many characters in too little time, Gin and Saeki are the only ones who are somewhat developed.
Satoru and Haru had much more character developement than Gin and Saeki and we new much more about there past.

>works only if they begin to change, which they didn't do.
Are you fucking kidding me? Did you even watch the show? Of course they changed. Haru changed from being overprotective to realising that he has to give Satoru his time together with other humans and Satoru changed his habit of social withdrawal and became much more positive overall.

>when they started having boyfriends who suddenly got dragged into the whole thing.
Again you proof that you either haven't even seen the show or haven't payed any attention to it at all. The ony friend of Saeki who has a boyfriend is Yumi and she had one right from EP01.
>>
>>100432724
Sorry to disappoint you OP but the show was a 4/10 at best.
>>
>>100432724
I did watch the show, liked the show and wish there would be more.

But that doesn't change the obvious flaws, Haru and Satoru don't change enough and they're simply not likeable.

Being overprotective over the whole thing doesn't help, especially when the shows lacks completely any focus
>>
>>100432970
I'm not OP, but thanks for your great, contributive post.
>>100432724
I'm not saying, that the show has no flaws, but saying that Haru and Satoru didn't change is simply wrong.
The focus is on the everyday life of the characters, in the end it's a typical SoL anime, just with some supernatural stuff. Obviously you don't need to like this kind of anime, so it's a valid point if you'd prefer a focus on fewer characters, but don't blame that on nonexistent flaws in the writing.

But driver was a total bro! How heartless can you be?
>>
>>100428957

The reason might be that the shinto propaganda was too obvious and caused rejection.

>>100433471
I like slice of life, it is one of my favorite forms of storytelling. But if it is going to work you need to be able to relate to and like the characters. The production team just couldn't manage to pull it off.
>>
>>100436274
Liking yes, relating no. Personally I liked all the characters, so I didn't care that it were more than in your average SoL.
>>
>>100432724
>Satoru and Haru had much more character developement than Gin and Saeki and we new much more about there past.
I kind of agree with this. But here's the problem: they were developed more because they got so much focus and screentime. If they didn't have such a large role, then the other characters might have been developed better. I didn't hate Haru and Satoru by the end of the show, but I didn't particularly enjoy their episodes either. I just think the show would have been stronger without the two.
>>
I liked it. Gin was a bro and supportive characters were nice too.

I liked it and would have love to see more. But it's true that it put too much emphasis on the side character for a 1cour.
