Why did Outbreak Company flopped so hard in Japan? It was literally the AOTS. The show was pretty deep too.
social commentary != depth
Because Infinite Stratos 2 was airing the same season.
I went in assuming I'd be all over Miusel, and came out 100% Petra.
I want an Empress.
It flopped? Do you have any source on that?
It seemed popular enough.
Also keep in mind that anime isn't only successful by selling BDs. It also serves as a commercial for the source it's based on (e.g. LN), and it can be successful by selling merchandise.
Because typical anime fans don't tend to be big into high fantasy.
Because it sucked shit and the messages it was pushing were fucking retarded.
the story sucked, characters were cute, but not cute enough to make up for a terrible plot
Because it suggested Japan could do wrong. No, musn't do that.
Get Saito and his Mitsubishi Zero, we've got some BDs to sell.
Because MC didn't fuck his loli dwarf student and it was absolutely retarded from the beginning.
Anime needs more dwarves, I don't care if they're lolis or not. I like dwarves.
because it was literally "the big bang theory" anime
>LOL LOOK AT ALL OUT REFERENCES!
>OTAKUS ARE SO COOL!
Is there even a remote possibility of a second season?
I mean, if something like Nyarko can get one..
Probably because the MC liked attack on titans.
people with taste would recoil from the thought, and people without taste can't appreciate it anyway.
Never even finished it, dropped it at the second to last episode. Open your eyes, it was shit.
too much otaku-school antics, not enough elf or plot
It wasn't nearly as clever as it thought it was. Good characters, shit story, shitty execution, shit references and no real payoff.
bipolar apes with shit taste or
only ones left in /a/; who have shit taste
Except The Big Bang Theory is popular. Nice try.
Nyaruko sold a lot.
