b) and probably most importantly, NOT being an Ecchi anime. Argue with me as much as you like, any substandard ecchi show will sell more than an overall decent anime like Otome Youkai Zakuro.
I wouldn't call that a drawback, but I do agree it won't help it sell.
Wrong use of word. I see what you wanted to say. Makes sense.
It is sad that on other forums the discussion about this show was more about the lack of jiggle-wiggle and panty shots than the characters and plot. It would have been out of place in the setting imo, and frankly that content is more than abundantly displayed in many other shows.
Thats the thing. But they are never satisfied regardless. If there are 100 anime coming out every year, at least 50 of those anime will be ecchi genre, or mild ecchi.
Thank GOD there wasn't any "jiggle-wiggling and panty/boob/bra shots". I'm fed up of anime production companies who have this belief that every single person enjoys the fanservice. Sometimes I feel as though they forgot that their audience isn't only comprised of male viewers. I see less and less shows catered to girls...I mean, why no "boxer shots"??? why no handsome male "flexing his stuff"??? lol but seriously, less/no ecchi equals more enjoyment!
As much as I can understand your fantasies being a female fan, that would be a major no no for me. lol. And no, your take on male fans is wrong. I watch more shoujo anime than many female fans out there, and also no, I watch them for no other reason but the stories that come with those shows, which are generally speaking, usually seems way better to me. And I have many friends who enjoy quality shows more over the ones based on fan services. And no, I am talking about the male friends I know. ;)
Sad and true. I don't know why ecchi is so popular... Well I do, but I'd rather not. =
the recent outburst over the law in anime/manga decency shows it all. as for my take on ecchi shows, I watch ecchi too. Like Ranma 1/2 from the old days, like Midori no Hibi and Hatsukoi Limited, or most recent Hyakka Ryuoran: Samurai Girls. But not because of the genre ecchi, but the comedy and romance that come along with those shows.
4 complete singles included in a 1Q show with Sphere performing the opening theme song and 3 anime original singles.
Yeah, I was kind of surprised that they had that for this show. If they're going to do something like that it makes you they had something more planned.
See. Thats what I wanted to say. They spent surprisingly abundantly for an anime that they wouldn't otherwise think profitable.
Anyways, the good news is, the sell of the DVDs is going better than expected and fans reaction at the ending of the anime got a bit boost for the anime itself. We just never know and a season 2 might be on the cards if things keep on going for the better, and as I read from Underwater blogspot, the first volume of DVDs sold more than 3000 copies.
On a side note, did anyone else notice the surprisingly dip in the animation of the final segment of this episode. Watch the way the hands and even faces are drawn (no, I am not talking about the chibi scenes but the ones in between, like Susukihotaru blushing when Chu no Agemaki (LMAO) was revealed). This shows it wasn't probably in the original plan of the anime and they just wanted to pull a happily-ever-after ending. I could be wrong, but the more I watch the final segment, the more I think I just might be right.

I was hoping the battle between the Black Widow and Zakuro would be longer; I was like that's it?! o_O

good romance development , although
a happy meal ending for everyone is not what I expected.
1. bro trying to sex up sister... Oh let's all forget about that
2. why can Agemaki sister see spirits? I guess agemaki himself is special like those lion gods said.
It would of been better of zakuro brother died. Creating compassion for his sob childhood wasn't enough.

omg, they killed Mugi! >.<'
the part where the house burn then every1 fighting the widow, and then omodaka just gave up on zakuro... o,o ... seriously that felt very forced... probably because producer didnt spent enough effort on how they present it...
anyway, i really like the romance part, it is probably the best part of this anime o,o
oblivious is a bliss

This was a pretty cool and cute series over all, once again a nice little success by Chiaki Kon. The ending episode was much more conclusive and interesting than most anime endings too, so overall a solid supernatural romance anime. 8/10

@Oosran - yo I thought Hanadate always looked kinda evil since the beginning too lol. Hot but sinister.
What gave it away was when he was spotted with the Black Widow in i've-forgotten-the-ep but it's the one where he gets stuck in the web.
Come to think of it...why was he stuck in her web when he's the Village Oracles Chief??!
Anyway, giving this a 6/10. Character development was too rushed at the end, and the saving aspects are the battle song/chant and the children. Oh the lovelies~
Susukihotaru x Riken was precious.
