Shinichi Kanou is a shut-in otaku with a vast knowledge of anime, manga, and video games. One day, after applying for a job in hopes of escaping his secluded lifestyle, he is kidnapped and transported to the Eldant Empire—a fantasy world filled with elves, dragons, and dwarves. Trapped in this strange land, Shinichi is given an unlikely task by the Japanese government: to spread otaku culture across the realm by becoming an "Otaku Missionary."

To accomplish his mission, Shinichi has the full support of the Japanese government, as well as the half-elf maid Myucel and Princess Petralka of the Eldant Empire. Together with this ragtag bunch, he will overcome the obstacles of politics, social classes, and ethnic discrimination to promote the ways of the otaku in this holy land.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
The story is about bringing Japanese culture, name it VN games, anime, manga and other things to a fantasy world that the goverment discovered, so that's why our protagonist is sent to this place, because he has the knowdlege of all these things, Shinichi will learn how different this fantasy world is. The thing is that everything was well paced until the last 3 episodes where they throw a lot of content too fast and too much for 3 episodes, so it was ok but a little disappointing.

Art & Animation
The art style was good, the characters were a little simple but still well made.

The sound ...

At the beginning of this fall anime season, I wasn’t planning on watching Outbreak Company. The synopsis for this anime wasn’t anything exciting nor was it intriguing. However, I decided to watch it anyway, for it was on Crunchyroll and there weren’t too many other anime I was hyped for this fall. After this show finished airing and I finished watching, I, unfortunately felt like I had wasted my time, tuning into this show every Sunday.

For the most part, the plot of Outbreak Company is nothing special. Our protagonist, Kanou Shinichi, is a reject who hides in his house all day. The reason for ...
