Why did Medaka Box sell like shit while the Monogatari series has consistently produced some of the best selling anime of all time?
One is a shounen. One is not.
Because Medaka Box's adaption was shit?
Because they didn't adapt the part people actually liked.
>Medaka Box's adaption was shit
Not only did the manga and anime sell similarly (poorly), the adaptation was pretty good. The only bad thing is they didn't get far enough to adapt the best part of the manga.
I would offer my firstborn for an adaptation of Minus and Unknown Shiranui Arcs.
no toothbrushing scene.....
