God no please no second season it'll ruin everything. If they animate the true ending that is. But overall the second half of the manga just wasn't as good as the first half.

true but second half was good not good as first half but still good i don't care about the ending i only care for the parts before it did have some good moments i think they should make it since everything was great in the manga except the ending

S2 won't happen because it didn't sell well enough 4000 copies average in Japan, you need 6000+ for S2.

Hmm was this anime licensed by another company before?

That's for 2 reasons:
1 - Time slots.
2 - No pantsu or tsundere.

Timeslots have nothing to do with it, since prime time anime doesn't sell either (Usagi Drop still outsold Naruto and One Piece normal DVD volumes).

Its just that the audience who buys anime aren't middle aged women, so they have no interest in Josei anime.

Denpa got a S2 and had none of the above just a little under 6000 copies sold overall + merchandising.

There's a saying that these kinds of masterpieces are released to the wrong audience at the wrong time. If anime like this were released back then, the resulting appeal would've been much different.

What are you talking about? Anime like this has never sold in Japan since the target audience for actual physical media always been the hardcore crowd.

Unless it happened very recently, no Denpa Onna sequel has been announced yet.

It wouldn't have helped, most of the Japanese BD buying audience are male and with few exceptions wouldn't bother with Josei especially ones that have a strong female main. Japan is far different from the west where we are grateful for a strong female protagonist.

? Plenty of otaku shows have strong female protagonists or female leads. A lot don't have male protagonists at all. Not every otaku show is a harem romcom.

And not all shows with a male protagonist or a weak female lead sell. Because... not all shows sell. Only about 30-40% of non-children's anime average 5k or more anyway.


That's very strange, I never remembered seeing that news anywhere else and it's really old now too. I wonder if the director jumped the gun a bit, or rather if the translator did. I think the only part referring to a sequel is "二期はあともうちょっとですね" which I thought would be translated as a more tentative "Wait a bit for news about a second season" sort of reply (in response to the initial tweet indicating anticipation for a sequel), not necessarily a definite "Yeah we're definitely doing a second season"-kinda answer.

Well if they are doing it, there will be a more official announcement at some point, and even then it wouldn't be coming any time soon with how backed up Shaft is.

Edit: also worth noting that same news story interpreted Hidan no Aria's "oh god please buy more BDs" comment as "great news, sequel probably coming!" so I'm taking their interpretations with a grain of salt.

Well it did say it wouldn't be coming out for some time, the fact you mentioned SHAFTs heavy workload proves that.

I always assumed that since this had already been licensed and released in Australia, America had it too.. You learn something new everyday.

Very cool. I'm picking up the manga slowly, but from what I have I am thoroughly enjoying it thus far. Haven't seen the anime, so I'm looking forward to seeing this, though I'm not a fan of the Premium Editions. (Crossing my fingers for a standard edition.)

When I saw this series I loved it and thought "finally a series that I can show my mum that these 'japanese cartoons' I watch all day can be enjoyed by you as well"

But there's no dub and no UK release :( :( :( :(

Seems watching anime will stay a hobby my parents can't understand...

I know this comment was a long time ago, but....how'd you like the second half?!

Lol I liked it, but it seems to be a fun topic.
