I think this is going to be a good story, with so many cliche for otaku MC to pander.
Hell yeah, he got knocked out by ojou-sama uppercut! well deserved and gratifying!
Damn, I never wanted to be an anime MC before, but this one is an exception!

Btw, the half-elf back story reminds me of Record of Lodoss War.

Well for the BGM (besides the weird DADADA) all was quite beautifully done.
Would love the OST release.

Yup, I'm going to like this. Reminds me of Blood Lad ever so slightly. Very entertaining.

My favorite reference/cameo was the Elf from Dragon Crown in the middle of town.

Aku no Hana found in the MC's room! Wonder why it would make appearance in the anime and then found that the studio actually did subcontractor work for that anime!

Have to admit though, that 'duh duh duh duh duh' background noise is pretty annoying and unnecessary.
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.

Waahhhh not what i expected! I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. And i love the the maidl! Shesss sooooo cuteeee :3 Gonna definitely keep my eye on this :))

Downsides - i felt there were a lot of cliched things when an anime tries to deal with the fantasy realm type thing. But then again its only been 1 episode >.<

Totally forgot about the premise of this anime and thought it'll be like "Coppelion" because of the series name..."Outbreak" Company...yeah, not even close. x)

The first ep had its (laughable) moments and a comedy about otakus is something I can enjoy. I won't expect anything mindblowing from this one though.

Hehe, that was surprisingly more fun than I expected it to be, don't think it'll be anything compared to ZnT but I'll check it out, looking forward to seeing the queen/princess in action.

Ok I'll admit it, premise didn't really interest me too much when I first heard about it but the execution was kinda funny. Can they keep it up the whole season though?

So it's something like, Yokodera in the world of Zero no Tsukaima of sorts.

Didn't expect it to be actually entertaining after reading the bizarre plot a while ago.

Also, that Indian classical music BGM. Made me LOL more than it should.

Why did like this ? It's silly and generic.

I kept asking this to myself while I was watching.

I liked maid-chan but I hated the girl at the end (the Empress), most likely she will ruin this series for me. We'll have to wait and see.

first episode and I already love Myuseru, her awesomeness level is 100 out of 100

but that other girl, I'm not sure what her name is but she's like a queen or something, I can already tell she's probably gonna annoy me throughout the entire series

Although they failed at designing the otaku with a pedigree, they did succeed at making him annoying.

I could see this end up hilariously bed, so I'll continue watching.

DADADADA for the win.

I'm having a hard time with the names of each show... 'cause with a name like Outbreak Company, I started ep 1 thinking there would be zombies and serious business...

I surprisingly enjoyed it, I find that it's strongest appeal is that it's pretty laid back and doesn't take itself least not yet.

Some of you pointed out references I didn't catch, which only makes me think this show will have more references and 'inside' jokes.

I guess I'll continue watching to see how this turns out.

This is my kind of anime, hell yeah for it! And that maid is super-cute, and I esp. like how he is teaching her how to speak his language. This MC is not half-bad, not too shy, not too perverted, nice indeed. 9/10!

An elf maid, big breasted guard and a loli empress? Cool. I'm guessing that this show won't have any serious plot at all. But spreading the otaku culture in a medieval kingdom sounds interesting to me.
And dat BGM sure was funny.

I really liked this first episode, some good comedy. I particularly liked the characters. Muisel is cute xD she immediately reminded me of Mira-

So I think I might like this series, especially Muisel ^^

Appropriately cute art-style, awesome soundtrack, kawaii meido-san, and a relatable main character.

I've seen this series show up a few times yet I didn't watch it, I regret that now... It was pretty interesting to watch.

If it had romance it would be just like Zero no Tsukaima. (which I do hope for but know I'm not going to get)

Shinichi reminds me of Yokodera from Hentai Ouji. He even looks like him, just a bit more of an otaku.

Yokodera is better though, being not generic and cliche-y.

This show is decent at best, adding the fact I love the fantasy medieval setting. It's not funny in the least to be honest, I didn't even chuckle.

Dadadadada BGM is pretty unique, but still can't beat Megane bu bu ~ or M-E-G-A-N-E. ^^

Sure hope that the MC doesn't remain generic the whole way through. I really hate cases where the royalty of the show give the MC special attention for no legit reason other than the MC being the MC of the show.

The princess did gave an order for execution, but no one follows the order? There is a reason why the soldiers acted so surprised/scared when the MC called the princess a "little girl", thus that means that it's a forbidden word, and the person who said that will be severely punished. If they skipped the punishment, I'd be fairly disappointed, because if that's the case there is no reason for the soldiers to be scared/surprised.

Episode from the semblance serious, but by the content stupid, looks like a taken for a ride, but dealt with in a serious way! LOL
Plot almost facepalm, I hope will not be revealed for this! ^ ^ "
Narration nice in certain situations, but not too funny to be honest.
The technical component supplied from the Fell is pretty good, I know this company for the countless animated series seen and done out by this company, it will have been a top as animated productions, but I found them almost all very nice!
Character design in the middle between the good ones and the bad ones!
I hope the best, but I see it hard! XD
Rating of 4/5 more than satisfactory, honors was unthinkable, now!
