I didn't think this show would get a second season. The story finds a suitable conclusion, so there's no need for another season of this. At least the second half of this show isn't nearly as bad as the first half, but still it's not something that's worthy or in need of a second season.

While I do agree with this in principal, i.e. I can just skip it and others can watch if they actually want to, I can't help but think that the resources being used to make this (still ZEXCS?) could be better spent on making something else instead, like another season of /the-comic-artist-and-his-assistants or /say-i-love-you. In general though, looking at the great majority of what they have made as the main animation production company, there are only a few exceptions to me dropping it after three or less episodes anyway, so it's probably no great loss.

Why yes, I guess I am rationalizing here, fox and the grapes style. :huh:

Remember that ZEXCS just animates this show, they aren't producing it. It isn't the same as Sunrise or KyoAni making a show. They weren't even a small partner on the production committee of this one so while they could choose NOT to take this job, it was just a job. They didn't help to make Mangaka-san to Assistant-san either, they just animated it, just a job again.

They WERE on the production committee for Say I Love you but it totally tanked in sales so they probably wish they hadn't invested in it.

Well, that was really a rhetorical "Why" expressing my own personal opinion about the show. I did understand there were reasons they'd do it, and I mostly don't really care why. If others like it and watch it or play the game, well yeah, obviously I can just stay away.

"As long as you're attractive, you can abuse women."


And it's made by idea factory. Wonderful.


Well, since I've read 50 shades of gray, I might as well watch this.

I like watching bad anime to lower my mean score on MAL to look like I have high standards.

Question: Is it worth me watching the first season so I could watch this?

I don't know why I'm asking since I already know the answer...

I am prepared for more laugh
Don't know if CR will get it. I won't bother to look for it if it isn't on CR.
Btw, I forgot what happened in the last episode. Yep, my brain just purged it out as soon as it over

We know the anime discs didn't sell very well. The music and drama CDs sell alright. Since it is getting a season 2 anyway we can only conclude that the game must sell well and the production committee must see the anime as a good advertisement for the game and must think that another season will keep up or even further boost player numbers. Obviously neither of you play the game, are not the target audience so they don't care what you think.

Diabolik Lovers 2013 Fall 0 Zexcs game

Anime discs: 0 sales which doesn't really mean 0 but it means so low that they didn't rank at all, and yet it is getting season 2. Yes, game must sell is all I can think.


I believe the anime sales from some stores like the official online shop and Stellaworth aren't reported to Oricon so no one know aside the producers how much the anime actually sold.

Although aside from the music and drama CDs selling quite well, this series does also have quite a lot of merchandise.

From what I know, the story in the game sequel is


I don't know if it will be the same case with the anime sequel though.
