Thermae Romae is so weird, I love that it's doing well.


And yet it's adaptation is so half-assed...


Because it isn't a very profitable subject. No high school girls or battle tournaments. I'm surprised it got an adaptation at all.

I'd better check out Thermae Romae anime since the manga seems to sell well. Though only 3 eps? Wat?
Also, some of the titles there are the ones getting an anime. Uchuu Kyoudai, Jourmungand, InuxBoku, Danshi Koukosei. Will also check those.
And anime seems to have boosted LN sales. Ben-to, ItsuTen and Hidan no Aria. Latter two's anime though was bad.
