I wonder why they're still trying to make anime out of these series. It was proved so many times that a series will not sell if it don't have mecha, ecchi or moe.

It's not that I mind it, I like seinen shows, and this one looks interesting as well. I just think it's strange that they're still trying.

Derp.



Yeah, God forbid someone actually makes something not for profit, but for creative and artistic purposes.


Ok, so apparently Mushishi, Natsume Yuujincho, Mononoke and DMC don't have any ecchi, moe or mecha (though it looks like you overlooked the fact that I mentioned mecha as well). But you propably know what they say: expection proves the rule.

It's also worth pointing out that the left pic has more seinen in it anime than the right one. Eureka Seven, Gundam and Gurren Lagann are shounen and Natsume Yuujinchou is a shoujo, leaving 4 seinen anime in the right pic (DMC, Mushishi, Mononoke and Stand Alone Complex).

The other pic has Hanamaru Youchien, Momoiro Sisters, Kanamemo, Chu-Bra!! and the Sacred Blacksmith, 6 anime which are all "seinen" (read as targeted at hardcore otaku)

The remaining 4 are Natsu no Arashi (a shounen that actually got pretty good critical reception, even by SHAFT skeptics) Akazukin Chacha (a shoujo from the pre-DVD era of the 90's), Mahou Tsukai Tai (god knows what demographic that's aimed that, but it started just as DVD players were started to be produced) and some generic harem that I can't identify that has a 50/50 chance of being seinen (with the other 50 for it being shounen)

Tl;DR
that chart shows that cartoons aimed at children sell better than cartoons aimed at adults, unless they were hyped by a popular prequel (Mononoke had the Bakeneko arc of Ayakashi, Stand Alone Complex had the GitS movie) or have a (persumably) popular manga to adapt from (DMC, Mushishi, possibly Hyougemono), which is what we knew all along.

Now get me the DVD figures for original, non-otaku, adult-orientated anime like Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 etc, and then we will talk.


The generic ecchi, harem anime is Hatsukoi Limited(same creator as Ichigo 100% if you didn't know).A shounen, in fact, the manga was published in Jump, although canceled abruptly. Just putting it out there

This series seems too uninteresting at least for me. I just can't seem to enjoy a historical fiction >.>

Sounds like House of 5 Leaves all over again

No. Sounds over 9000 times better than this crap.

And much better than most of the stuff announced lately.


Oh god I lol'd.

I love it when MAL thinks its the most critical and intelligent site on the internet.

This manga sounds better suited for a drama than an anime though.

Cool wall of text, but we aren't taking into account target demographic, but simply if a show contains ecchi and/or moe elements. Shows on the right do not, and they did sell well.
So you have never seen Motoko naked in GitS? GitS has fanservice, but it makes up for it by including cyberpunk elements and a plot that is generally considered high-quality.

3 of those show have giant robots, which are also a fanservice of sorts, albeit it different one to the traditional ecchi fanservice, but they are fanservice nevertheless.

Also, let's forget that Yoko Littner ever existed because she provides too much ecchi fanservice to be in an anime on the right-hand column.

Your point is valid for the remaining anime, especially Mushishi, so I won't argue with you about those.

TTGL has way more ecchi elements than Natsu no Arashi.

I wonder if this tea anime will be the highlight of the spring 2011 season? Well, I guess that depends on how Appleseed XIII and Moshidora turn out, but I will be following this for sure.

Dec 4, 2010 3:48 AM by Rosa_FOEtida

Well the synopsis is rather confusing but since its historical, samurai and seineni might watch...
