That anime had so much potential :( I did not think it was that bad, but it could (should) have been much better.

And these make me think that I was the only one who actually enjoined the anime to what it was:/

I'll gladly proclaim that I'm buying this as it is a worthy license. NIS America doesn't licenses really popular stuff if anyone hasn't noticed it already. I'm so glad someone licensed this as it was the only Anime no Chika left to release here. Time to see Maya again, she is hot!

Natsume Yuujinchou, Toradora, Katanagatari, Working!!, Pandora Hearts and Kimi ni Todoke are NOT POPULAR AT ALL.

No one likes them AT ALL.

I actually wanted to watch this a while ago but never got around to it. Reading these comments, I don't know if I should go watch it now or forget it. ^^V

I wish they would have went after Kimi to Boku or Mawaru Penguindrum instead. Same for Sentai too. Oh well.....nothing good this time around.

I meant compared to stuff thats REALLY popular like the Shonen Jump stuff, Gurren Lagann, FLCL, Eden of the East, and so forth. Believe it or not those anime are not as popular as you think they are.

But Occult Academy is? The shows you mentioned are top tier popularity stuff, that is like asking why Right Stuf doesn't license a show as popular as DBZ. Eden of the East was not more popular than Toradora, at least in the internet community also.

LOL I think it's unpopular for a reason. And I don't know which unpopular animes are licensed already but this definitely isn't the best choice.

A bit biased here, but if it's about Comedy/Sci-Fi Level E is actually a better choice.

Eden of the East is more "western" and I know of more people who actually watched it over Toradora. NIS licenses stuff that has a strong supporting fanbase, but their stuff aren't really popular in a universal or "easy money" sense. If that was the case then why Funi or Sentai hasn't grabbed any of their titles before them?

What the fuck is a "Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin"? Would it kill this site if the staff used the names people actually know? Will the minority of non-English speakers here mind if you just said "Occult Academy?" That's probably what they either called it, or is closer to what they called it, in their own language anyways. Not to mention this whole site, and this news article is in English. This peeves me.

That said, I'm glad this show is being brought over. I didn't particularly like it, but at least it gives hope for other non-recent anime to be licensed, like Michiko & Hatchin.

That's what it is called for the MAL entry, this news keeps consistent to that.

If Natsume Yuujinchou is not popular then why does it have four seasons?

Eden is not more popular than Toradora. Toradora sold out the first vol. within days of the release over here same with Working!! if you haven't noticed. While Eden of the East did not. Don't get me wrong I love all those shows. But it really DOES NOT matter if a anime is western or not. Evangelion is FAR FROM western and it has sold more than Eden and Toradora combined and is hella more popular. It doesnt matter if a show is western for it to be popular over here. If that was true anime such as this and over 85% of anime wouldn't get licensed.
