According to Nagano Prefecture Tourism Bureau, the number of visitors to Takamine Highland in Komoro city this summer has increased by 52.5% compared with the year earlier period. Nagano Prefecture attributed the increase to the fans of Ano Natsu de Matteru, whose model city is Komoro.

Komoro City Tourism Association and Komoro Chamber of Commerce have launched a PR project team and promoted the city in cooperation with the anime.

Hanasaku Iroha - Yuwaku Onsen in Ishikawa Prefecture (SUCCESS)
Kamakura/Shonan - Tari Tari (SUCCESS)

Shimoda - Natsuiro Kiseki (FAILURE)
Kamokawa - Rinne no Lagrange (FAILURE)
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Good to hear, especially after Kamogawa failure which is still over my head. They'd probably have to make a model of Pharos on the sea for Kamogawa tourism to suceed.

One thing I need to point out is that the source PDF file also shows a drop between 10 to 28% of tourists for the places in 安曇野 Aizuno area because the popular TV drama Ohisama ended last year. So we don't know if the boost provided by Ano Natsu can sustain in long term like Yuwaku Onsen made famous by Hanasaku Iroha.

i loved both seasons of lagrin, but they simply overdid it with this shit. At times it literally felt like an animated advertisement campaign for this stupid city - which it probably actually was.
Ano natsu and HSI did it way more subtle and simply less annoying.

Pleasant news, always glad to see otaku making some difference

On the topic of the show itself: it had very decent romance moments, some of the best in the recent years actually. But well, it could've been a lot better, and starting with ep10/11 they went full retard on everything, almost seemed like a parody

Glad to hear that. It was a surprisingly good series. I liked it, and it's good to see that other people liked it enough to visit the city. One day I will go to Japan and go to every city that had an anime town modeled after it.
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

Unfortunately they did take the photos of the comparison video in the Winter. >_>

But anyway, it's good that this proves that basing anime on real locations really works. Not that we didn't know this already years ago, but some people tend to forget that.

ANO NATSU was quite good indeed, sure, its no masterpiece but its was very enjoyable, infinitely better than generic moe, fanservice, loli, harem anime of nowadays. (before you take offense, take note on generic term I use, because theres good series currently produced on those genres too...well maybe not much in the harem genre thou, those as as generic as they can get)

better more accurate opinion

This again.

No, watching more anime than someone does not make your opinion more valid. Knowing more about the history of anime than someone does not make your opinion more valid. It can, if they're serious enough about studying it, leave someone better situated to discuss trends and themes in anime over the decades, provided they can speak in terms of factual, historical information. Such as which genres have gone in and out of favor, which narrative elements increased or decreased, how animation technology has changed, etc.

But it absolutely, positively, unquestionably, does not give you anything resembling the right to tell someone what they should or should not like, which is exactly what you are doing when you claim that their opinion of a show is invalid because the age or breadth of their anime viewing is not up to your standards.
