    Just watching two adolescents call a random girl their "daughter" was cringy enough.

    Kono Bijutsubu 02 - This show is consistently funny and cute. I was enjoying it so much it seemed like the episode went by really quickly. This, New Game, Amaama to Inazuma, and Love Live make this season a slice of life paradise.

    Koyomimonogatari sold well, of course. Can't wait to get BDs subbed to watch it.

    Academia sold far worse than I would have thought. Only a combined 4.7k sales. Surprised it so easily got a second season.


    Even moar.

    Kiznaiver is selling like shit. Complete shit. Only 647 on V2, 50% drop from V1.

    Mayoiga is also unranked, so it looks like it sold next to nothing, but it could be an error.

    Death is a human universal and the effect that death has on those who remain is often profound. It lays bare the thoughts and feelings of those who remain in moments of unrivaled clarity. Profoundly, it raises that specter that we keep at bay most of the time: that we are mortal ourselves and that some day we will meet the same fate.

    For a series to deploy death as a plot device is not new or daring, but to actually accept the consequences of it is surprisingly rare. What often happens is a pathetic compromise: death is treated as temporary. Either the characters do not actually die (but are treated as dead for a period of time) or are killed but their death is reversed. By doing this the series seeks to cash in on the emotional impact but avoid any of the substance. And so as he points out in his video, it implicitly tells the viewer that there is no risk ever again. It retroactively undermines its own drama AND greatly dampens its ability to produce it in the future.

    This is why I am so adamant about this topic, and why I am so disappointed when death is fudged. It's not that I seek the destruction of characters but that I want the development of others as a result.

    This is a big peeve of mine too. I hate it when characters come back for any reason other than it being central to the plot line and making total sense. Very few anime are like that though, and most bring a character back just to bring them back, because the writers didn't want to kill them off in the first place, but sucked at writing drama any other way.

    @Zaythell It's just Shueisha at work for more BokuHero anime and manga boost more important for that show, bd/dvd don't matter as much, other merchandising sales do.

    I guess merchandising definitely does help, but that goes more towards the investors, publishers, committee and manufacturers, than the anime studio. Though if merchandising is good enough, those people will pay the studio to do another, so that'd make sense.

    BD/DVD does still matter quite a bit though. If it doesn't sell much, then merchandisers won't make as much merchandise for the show, since they think they won't get as many sales, though they probably get insider info from the stations on viewership ratings for the show.

    Pretty much have the full ED song already, since it's a song/music video created as a collaboration between the two (mangaka and band), from them being fans of each other. Fits quite well.

    Asatsu-DK Announces Plans to Acquire Anime Studio Gonzo
    Japanese advertising Agency Asatsu-DK announced on Thursday that it plans to purchase animation studio Gonzo with the goal of making it a consolidated subsidiary.
