I really love the classic adventure feel to this show, It almost feel like an older Miyazaki movie at times. I like that their is no onedimensional villian in this one or "heroes" for that matter. The fightscenes feels thoughtout and I love the strategy-feel of them.
The jokes are smart and sometimes hilarious, yes i´m lookin at you dragoon-lady, and never takes focus from the action. I also like the the takes on classical beasts such as unicorns (keep it coming),
Chaika´s eyebrows and way of speech is also adorable. Lookin forward to season two!

Idk about you guys, but every time Chaika chants a spell and ends it with a somewhat Engrish, a part of me wants her to have an attack that is called 'The World' just because of the way she pronounces the English phrases.

It's quite the fantasy, a nice refreshing sword and magic anime. Forgive me for this, but my first impressions were of a mix of He-Man and Final Fantasy, among other things. And with AgK, I have two things to look forward to.

Obviously This will get a bump as well...I am impartial.

This is for research purposes...This time this link goes for Shiro vs Akari. Again feel free to ignore this, is is a pretty sub par contest(I kid of course, don't get rustled)

I am very glad this had a second cour already "baked in", as the sales of the first two volumes weren't good at all. (1,490 for the first, and not even ranking for the second).

Color me confused as to why fans in Japan apparently didn't like the series. Perhaps it didn't have enough fan service for them?

Actually the second volume just came out last week so it's sales figures aren't out yet.. it won't be pretty. And it may not show up tomorrow in preliminary results, may need to wait for the final results at the end of the week with powerhouses like LoveLive!, Monogatari, et al also having been released last week (bought both of those along with Chaika). Last week's releases which will show up in this week's sales in something close to the sales rankings:

In fact, Japanese fans did like the series, Hitsugi no Chaika. Just not enough to buy it in droves. We still don't understand well the difference between shows people like and shows people like enough to buy. This season has a similar issue.

Some summer sales predictions, very early days and many are underestimated surely but to make a point:

20.3k Sword Art Online II
11.6k Free! -Eternal Summer-
10.0k Persona 4 The Golden
*8.6k Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal
*5.4k Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun 
*4.4k Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei!
*4.0k Yama no Susume S2
*3.6k Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus
*3.3k Barakamon
*2.7k Bakumatsu Rock
*2.7k Tokyo Ghoul
*2.2k Sengoku Basara Judge End
*2.0k Hanayamata 
*1.3k Jinsei
*1.2k Sabagebu!
*1.2k Futsuu no Joshikousei ga【Locodol】Yattemita.
*1.2k Space Dandy S2
*1.1k Rokujyoma no Shinryakusha!?

Some well liked and often mentioned and praised series are poised to sell very poorly. It is just the way it goes. Being popular sequels sure helps as the top 4 shows display, even the top 8.

But I too am very pleased that Chaika is getting a second season. Hurray for split cours...

I am buying it anyway! Already have the first two, along with the all volume box for which stickers are given out with each volume to 'fill in' the windows with characters. And a little bonus novel with each one as well, not bad bonuses really but not the greatest. That could be a small factor in its performance.

Mostly though, it is from a little known novel series and as lovable a character as Chaika is, the buying fanbase just isn't there.

Not sure if I should watch this next season, since I didn't really like the first. Can any manga readers shed a little light on the 2nd season?

Guess that's the company cutting their loses to a minimum considering the poor sales of season 1. Can only hope the Japanese with their seemingly deep pockets take a liking to the 2nd season and buy the heck out it to generate a 3rd season.
