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.

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

Whoever thought being an otaku can come with so many responsibilities? For Shinchi Kano, his responsibilities just skyrocketed after being set up and sent to a fantasy world. Sounds fun right? Wrong. It seems that some higher powers wants this young boy to spread the otaku culture and expands the Japanese culture in their world like never ever before. Being otaku is often considered a negative influence due to its pure nature. But in Outbreak Company, it plays on different trope. In fact, it’s being an otaku that allowed Shinichi to gain stardom in this new world where his life changes forever.

I didn't know what to expect from this anime, and i was not going to watch it but i decided to give it a try, i'm glad i did because it was funny.

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 this things, Shinichi will learn how different this fantasy world is. The thing is that everything was well paced until the last 3 or 2 episodes where they throw a lot read more
