Synopsis

Having 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

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"

Story: 7
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 read more

This anime is the ultimate anime lover's dream. I'm just going to start this review by saying that I have a thing for anime that has a message that I can take away from it. Right off the bat, we have Shinichi, a bro that honestly reminds me of a couple of my friends who just sit and watch anime and read manga all day. In the beginning, we see Sinichi's bad luck set in when he gets kidnapped and brought to some foreign world that has magic and loves Japanese otaku culture. Shinichi is brought in to educate this new world of his otaku read more

Outbreak Company is a very enjoyable anime to watch. It's one of those series that can have a positive effect on your mood when you're tired and frustrated.

Story: 7

The story is a bit original, for me at least. Never before have I seen an anime where the main character actually exports the whole otaku culture. It's pretty fun how they implemented this general idea and having such a short amount of time to provide the viewers with enough details/explanations as to why and how this is happening they did a pretty good job.

In no case you should expect an anime with no holes or arbitrary read more

Recommendations

Both have a Tsundere character that likes the main.
And the main is surrounded by Harem.
The main comes from "this" world right into a "magical" world.
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.
Outbreak Company and No Game No Life shares the similarity of taking place in fantasy world. And in that world, the main male protagonist gets involved with various races/kingdoms that tests their skills to the limits. There is decent amount of comedy, gags, and references.

Outbreak Company deals with a protagonist using his otaku knowledge to change the world. No Game No Life involves a protagonist that uses their gaming skills to conquer the world. I recommend both series for anyone looking for entertainment in a world with fantasy appeals.
Ixion Saga DT and Outbreak Company both deal with a fantasy world in which characters are enlisted to help others. The main male protagonist is familiar with the otaku culture because of his own experiences.

There is a lot of parody and comedy going around both series. The main male protagonist also has odd fantasies regarding many characters on various occasions. There is some "action" but most of it is presented in a fun style rather than anything serious. Most of the episodes are also standalone rather than a linear arc.
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.
In both, we have a protagonist suddenly plunged into a new environment, very different from where they live. Oda Nobuna no Yabou has the protagonist traveled back in time, in an alternate universe, while Outbreak Company has it's protagonist travel to a different fantasy world. In both, they are faced with very different social structures, and attempt to bring modern knowledge to the people around them, and in doing so, they end up with a very prominent role or position. They are both surrounded by abundant cute girls.
