Does anyone know of any news of the show's popularity in Japan or anything about it having a season 2? This was easily one of the best anime this year. 10 eps don't do it justice

Sad to see it go. It was really good while it lasted. I hate the open ending. Either end it or don't damnit! But anyways loved the characters, the action was tight, Izayoi was a breathe of fresh air for male heroin leads, and who could forget the cute ending.

A solid 4/5 and here's to them making more.

Blurays are low on preorder sales.

The LNs saw a huge increase in sales but I've still not seen any numbers so it's kinda hard to gauge if there is enough interest there to have another season.

Episode 10

Well the show concluded on a pretty good note
Izayoi is still overpowered as hell but at least Asuka is getting her upgrades
You is just kind of there now lol



Whatever, good show nonetheless, I enjoyed my time watching it

8/10.

Solid series with a nice sense of humor, badass protagonist, concept, and some tensions. I definitely hope there will be a season 2. Also, thinking about the LN/Manga soon when it gets translated in its entirety.

Present preorder prediction is 2000 units for volume 1 of the Bluray which is below break even of something like 3000 units. A light novel bump of 10000 copies could be enough to make up the difference; the previous volume in December sold 17893 copies, next one is out very soon (no I didn't order it, sorry, I have a zillion unread books to get through already!).

The 8th volume of the light novel will include an OVA episode so it isn't quite over yet but I doubt CrunchyRoll will get that.

And I'm wrong actually, since the anime came out all the volumes of the novels have sold 50000 each and the publisher is one of the backers of the anime production so they may very well not give a darn about Blu ray sales at this point if it keeps selling 50000 copies which is equivalent to 5000 discs.

wow.. suddenly our hope for a season 2 just sparked right back up.

I still want to pre-order the BD, but it's so expensive... and I don't know japanese, anyway, I just want to increase sales even by 1.

Well never did get any confirmation on my Izayoi = Indra theory but this was a fun show and I'd love to see more.

Fun show. Hopefully all the final sales numbers will end up good enough for another season. I loved the shot of Calico Cat in the ending sequence.

And a random curiosity found in episode 10.

You've already seen it subbed here once so do you need it subbed now? Fight anime can be enjoyed just as it is though there is a lot of dialogue in this one. Some import folks do just that, they buy them just to support the show and get the extras.

Seems like these kinds of animes where the charactets get thrown into another word is quite popular in the business atm.
SAO(not really thrown into another world, but you understand what I mean), Accel World, Ixion Saga DT, Dog Days, Ambition of Oda Nobuna, Sengoku Collection and this one.

I felt the same way about this one as I did when I watched the first ep of Ixion Saga DT.
Like it was a game.
But I like this one more, becaus I've only watched the first ep of Ixion Saga DT and currently watching the 3rd of this one.

This just brightened my shitty day right up

I hope to hell they back another season and pace it properly this time so its less confusing with no LN context.
