And what's so bad about liking both? Where did I state it's something to be ashamed of?

Didn't say you did, just pointing out differences in taste and wondering why you two were going back and forth arguing that their show is bad and yours is good. That's never changed anyone's mind about anything.
No, we weren't? Actually, what "you two" are you talking about? I simply replied to his not very bright comment and that's it for "our" "conversation". Calling it "going back and forth arguing that their show is bad and yours is good" is extreme exaggeration. If anyone's wishing to go back and forth over something, it's you. Man, relax.
I had no intention of changing anyone's mind.

An anime aimed at fujoshi doesn't necessarily need to be a reverse harem or yaoi. Also say what you want but KuroBas is indeed aimed at fujoshi. I'm guessing you've never seen the ending cards for the anime..


thank you!

You seem pretty butthurt. Why would you mention Tasogare otherwise? And yes, Tasogare is bad. Boring. As you would expect from desperate SHAFT wannabes. Zombie Saten > Ghost Yomi.

This is getting into "I know you are but what am I?" territory. "Sankarea is bad" "No Tasogare is bad" "No Sanakarea is bad" 'No Tasogare is bad" ...some people like both, you know. Me being one.
And what's so bad about liking both? Where did I state it's something to be ashamed of?

I didn't expect Sankarea to do so badly...


No, it's obvious.
Sankarea is low-quality show with terrible character design.
Actually, it's one of better anime that came out last season. And the only thing bad about chara design is Furuya's face.


No! Sankarea is simple bad and generic show.

Tasogare is MUCH better.

*5, 4,698 Natsuiro Kiseki

Can I cry now? How come to this show to rank that high? D:


One word: Sphere.

I put on-hold all my spring anime, but let me talk about the sales anyway:
*1, 8,918 Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Nice! This show was very nice! And it will get a next season yay!
*2, 8,896 Hyouka

I need to keep watching but so far, beside the animation, this isn’t very impressive
*5, 4,698 Natsuiro Kiseki

Can I cry now? How come to this show to rank that high? D:
*6, 4,494 Tsuritama

I still have to see the best part of the show.
*9, 3,588 Nazo no Kanojo X

Not that bad. But could have done better.
13, 2,520 Acchi Kocchi

Yes this was only some random moe blobs but...I liked it...And I hoped for it to get better sales...
15, 2,059 Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
16, 1,487 Sankarea

WOW! This was actually a surprise, I didn’t expect them to do THIS bad. I don’t know about the shows second half but useless it ruins everything those to deserve 3k more than Natsuiro deserves its 4.6k LOL

winter anime is dead

? Winter 2012 is actually doing well.


darn, me and my sense of time

it should be "spring season"

Jul 10, 2012 6:59 PM by articuzwolf

oh poor nazo kanojo, I actually did like it

gave you some vibrant fresh of romance comedy

seems that stalker kinda "overestimating" number for spring anime sales

winter anime is dead

probably only fate zero 2 will break 10k(maybe even 50k) barrier

Jul 10, 2012 4:35 PM by articuzwolf

I'm pretty sure Nazo no Kanojo X will surpass 4000 next week. Until today it was out of stock in lots of shops so I'd take these numbers with a grain of salt.

Also to say if it is a success or not, why don't look at Hoods numbers?
(first BD volume sales)

Nazo no Kanojo X 3,588
Manyuu 2,912
Kamisama Dolls 1,437
Qwaser 4,994
QwaserII 2,721
Aki Sora 3,304

I think the sales are good being a non-ecchi series from Hoods.

I could see Muv Luv staying this high. Its already a very popular franchise with an established fanbase, combining hot girls and mecha. Seems like a recipe for success to me.

Why do people do this "You like a show I don't like so I'm going to use that to invalidate your opinion on a completely unrelated show" thing? I mean don't get me wrong, I like Sankarea, but how is it in any way related to Evangelion?

And whatever Evangelion may or may not be to you, "generic" ought to be one of the last descriptions applied to it. Maybe I could understand the reaction if his #1 anime were, like, Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi (which I like btw, but would never ever defend as being particularly "unique") or something. But "You like Evangelion so you're a hypocrite for trashing Sankarea" just makes me go "...Wha? o_O"

I don't mean to specifically defend motrya either ("is simple bad and generic show" is pretty lame/unhelpful reasoning) but I just find the comparisons people choose to make when attacking or defending shows to be so very strange.


Hmmm, i can say one thing.I can't help but get angry and annoyed when people talk about shows i like, like its trash, especially when they love anime that its overrated as hell (IMO).I guess that's just being immature, eh.I don't regret it though, if he wouldnt say anything, or something light like ''its in my opinion not a good show, but yea, it's just my opinion'' i wouldnt say a shit.But when i see someone going ''Its a bad show, terrible, im not surprised it didnt sell well'' im going rage.

Glad to see Nyaruko at 9k as well. If this keeps up then 2nd season is all but inevitable.


2nd season has been announced on the Haiyore Nyaruko-san twitter account.

I feel bad for Tasogare Otome x Amnesia and Nazo no Kanojo X. They both worth more
Agreed. I'm hoping they both atleast got boosts in manga sales.

Chihayafuru sold just as low yet it's getting a 2nd season because of the huge boost it got in manga sales.

I'm sure that the OAD being in Volume 9 of Nozo no Kanojo X when it comes out in August will also boost the manga sales.

Looking at Evangelion in your favs and reading this comment made me laugh.
