SynopsisHaving a light novel author father and an eroge illustrator mother, Kanou Shinichi is a thoroughbred otaku. However he does not have any special power except for his broad knowledge, sharp insight, and impeccable instinct about "MOE" and its products, from manga to anime to games to light novel to figures. One day he found himself transported to a fantasy world where elves live and dragons fly. And he is given a task—not to fight monster or embark on a quest, but to enhance cultural exchange by becoming a "moe missionary" in this fantasy world! He meets a palace guard who has a bit of fujoshi taste, a half-elf maid, and the empress who is a little girl. He comes up with the idea of building a school. At first it runs as a comedy but later there are serious matters that Shinichi needs to face: ethnic discrimination, social problems, conflict with neighboring countries, sabotage by opposition elements including Japanese government, etc. Can he overcome the obstacles, successfully bring "moe" culture to the fantasy world, and help the people there as well?

The most typical shut-in you'll get
Once filled out a survey on the net
His remarkable score
Opened up a new door
And then his new employment was set
So then after the following night
What awaited him gave quite a fright
As he opened his eyes
He was seeing new skies
In a new world, a marvelous sight
He'd been sent to this realm on a quest
That would put all his skills to the test
About culture he'd preach
About manga he'd teach
He'd explain how Moe is the best
By his side was a beautiful maid
Who would do anything that he bade
But the Tsundere Queen
Who was barely a teen
Would at all costs not let him get laid
Then a school was established one day
Where the lessons all looked more like play
But the Dwarves and the Elves
Started fighting themselves
Over which was the best eroge
So the culture was rapidly spread
But a problem came up in its stead
Who could ever have guessed
They would all be obsessed
And read manga until they'd be dead
In the end all that matters is this:
It's a truth you can never dismiss;
Simply no matter what
Ends up happening or not
The Otaku culture is a bliss! read more
This whole anime can be summed up by the lyrics of one of the songs that comes from Outbreak Company. "DA. DA DA DA DIN DIN DA DA DA"
This anime is a clash of modern day Japan with a fantasy land that has knights, dragons, a loli ruler, elves, dwarfs and dragons. Just imagine a brighter version of LOTR. We follow Shinchi as he has to spread otaku culture (Anime and Manga) throughout the lands of Eldant. That is pretty much the show....
The pacing of Outbreak Company was fine up until the final two episodes, which the pacing felt too fast as they tried cramming in a lot of seriousness that the other ten episodes lacked. The ten episodes lacking seriousness wasn't a bad thing, the show was doing a great job with those episodes, but the last two rushed into drama and seriousness.
Art was great! Something I found enjoyable were all the references to other shows through background art such as a parody poster of Hataraku Maou-sama.
Scenery was amazing as well they made medieval times look happy and splendid. Castle, fields, mountains, the whole thing was pretty to look at.
Character designs weren't outstanding, but unique enough to separate characters and make them memorable.
In my opinion, Univer Page, the OP of Outbreak Company is my favorite song to come out of this fall season of anime. It is so cheery and the way the song starts, eargasm. Watashi no Houseibako, the ED of Outbreak Company is a very soothing song and very good to listen to while running. Both songs give off the vibe that the whole anime is trying to do, make the person watching this very happy.
The background music does a great job at carrying the mood, with a very unique song that is used during comical parts, I already quoted the lyrics of it in the beginning of this review.
Characters are given enough depth to make the memorable, and distinguishable. This is good since my first impression after looking at the OP was that characters would be easy to mix up. Character development was great, everyone had development outside of being interested in manga or anime.
The only problem I had was the random characters added halfway through, the dwarf and the elf. These two were added to the story and I was assuming for them to have a pretty big role for upcoming events, but nothing really happened involving them.
This anime was enjoyable because of the otaku humor. I found humor based around references and other things anime and manga hilarious. Multiple scenes I have laughed, and the soundtrack makes it even funnier. I also really enjoyed the one part of seriousness they did in the last episode, the only time this series did the serious business right, which makes the last two episodes worth it.
Great anime for the fall season with an amazing soundtrack. I will be listening to Univer Page for a long time to come, especially when I need a pick me up.
Almost the same, except the main character in anime actually went along to the other world for some excitement, while the other got duped by his own gov't.
Both series are very similar, A normal human goes to a world fulled with magic, friendship and almost there romance (If you know what I mean)
-main character is stuck in another world
-meets new girls, and quickly becomes friends with them
-some ecchi in both series
-main character is a key to the relationship between 2 countries( biscotti and Gallete in dog days, japan and the magical world in outbreak comapny)
- fantasy world(fantasy genre)
- certain characters have cute ears animal ears :)
The same situation were guy got transported into another world and have to find a way home.
Both almost share the same genre, except the mc "OC" was trying to improve the lives of the entities in the alternate universe he's in, while in "DD" the mc was in it for the excitement and to make his summer vacation wonderful.
What happens when a teenager goes from modern Japan to fantasyland?
Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company both contain a ton of humor. Among some of these include its various anime references. The main characters in both series are also oblivious to certain simple things because they are not from the world they were once used to. However, they are able to adjust and even become friends with others that they encounter.
There is some action in both series although most of it is portrayed as comedic. The main male protagonists from both series are also somewhat similar in personality. However, their respective relationships with the main female characters from both series are very contrasting.
-The level of comedy is similar.
-It's about two different realms.
-It has many references
-In the show ; you know where to laugh.
Both are as interesting as heck! The plot-lines are absolutely fantastic. The jokes really hit me hard while watching both series. Both stories take place where the earth has another realm, which is actually something that is especially unusual for comedy anime. The animes' endings have a superb overall aspect to them! I hope this is useful for everyone searching for good anime to watch! :)
Both are great fantasy comedies which both feature romantic aspects ~;u;~
