Yeah, Mighty no.9's advertisement was cringey as hell. When I first heard about the game a long time, I was somewhat about playing it. Then as the months went on and I heard more and more, it continued to sound worse by the second. When I saw this trailer for it like a month ago, it sealed the deal that I would never play it. I cringe just seeing things for it.

Yep, good news is it doesn't sound like anything worth missing. Apparently pretty terrible!

I really don't pay attention to any ads on here and have a premium membership so I don't seem the while streaming.

That being said, I did just watch it out of curiosity and it's terrible. X_x

I just watched the Ad for the first time, and honestly it just made me laugh at it. No cring reaction, nothing of the sort. Just pure laughter. Over all I like the dated sterotypical things over all. But will I get the game? Probably not. It looks fun but from what I heard it dropped the ball majorly in other areas.


Is it appropriate for Crunchyroll? Not with the Anime jab. But if the company wants to pay for Ad space here on crunchyroll they have a right to. In maybe a month or so the Ad will be gone and the game will be forgotten by most.



Edit: I actually never went to Prom myself, never seen a reason to. I can't remember what I did though, it was either watch Anime or play JRPGs. There is also the possablity some of my other friends never went and we did a D&D style pen and paper RP. Honestly Prom was so long ago I can't remember.

This is a site for anime fans, yet I just saw the massive banner advertising "Mighty No. 9". I can only assume the people choosing these ads aren't aware of it, but see here for some more details:

http://www.pcgamer.com/mighty-no-9-trailer-promises-to-make-bad-guys-cry-like-an-anime-fan-on-prom-night/

Now, I normally don't care too much about this sort of stuff, but a marketing blunder like that reflects badly on the gaming and anime communities, and I think it's pretty insulting to be greeted with a massive banner of the very game that insulted an entertainment medium I love, and sullied another that I'm a part of (gaming).

The ad should be replaced with that of a different product. Is that an unreasonable request?


You don't seem to understand how advertisement on a website works. They don't choose who or what gets advertised on their service since the company behind it are paying for clicks and a spot on the website. Also it doesn't reflect much on the anime or gaming community since it was the creator who lied and that's why people are mad, not the insults like the mainstream seems to think. So they were smart enoght to use that as an opportunity. This is coming from a backer... So I can say this as I have access to the backer forum

I'm not really offended by the ad...but it sounds like that's the least of their problems since the game itself seems to be having a crapload of problems...

Oh stop being so butt hurt. Was it a dumb line? yes totally they should at least dock the pay of whoever thought that up.

But no reason to go "OMG LETS BOYCOTT THE GAME" over one line. It sounds really petty if THAT is your reason for wanting an ad removed.

Not saying you have to buy the game or anything I'm just talking about your reaction to the trailer. Again it was dumb but that's it no reason to take it so personally.

Thanks for the laugh!!! I found it cute and comical so don't understand your complaint unless you took it personal about not attending prom night. Grow up! The ad work obviously since you have now brought it to the attention to other people who would have never bothered to click on the ad.
