    A rich blend of content.
    Otaku fantasy is a term that was appropriately coined to describe this series. Welcome our otaku protagonist and his mission to spread his culture to a new magical world, and the frequent references slipped in from a vast array of other anime from old to modern. Then follow his adventures done with typical unabashed otaku style while somehow managing to stay in one piece.

    A very interesting ...

    Don't let a weird first episode steer you wrong
    Everything going into this makes it look like any other 'anime about anime' shows that's been produced, but after a wonky start, what comes out is a show that is both genuinely funny and profound in its own way.

    Don't let the boob-filled poster fool you: this is not just a sex comedy about a sad nerd and his hot friends. This is something special, even if the parody names and references to ...

    The Underdog of the Season
    I didn't go into this with high hopes, and I've come out every week wanting more. Everything about Outbreak Company is amazing. The story focuses around the main character Shin'ichi Kanō who is tasked with bringing the Japanese culture to another world. So basically he is getting paid to teach this other world about manga, anime, and all the other great things that Japan has to offer. The ...

    A favorite of mine that deserves more recognition.
    Outbreak Company is one of many good anime that go unnoticed unfortunately. It focuses on an otaku that is sent to another world by the Japanese government to promote Japanese (mainly otaku) culture. It is an interesting premise that has unforgettable characters. Also, references are a plethora in this anime. See if you can spot some of them.

    Almost a waste of potential
    If I have one complaint about this series, it's that it seems almost too well written and conceived for the fluffy and frequently cliche harem rom-com that it is. The premise is clever and requires only a bit of suspension of belief, the characters are mostly realistic, and the setting is coherent and consistent. The protagonist is only mostly clueless, and the affection of the girls who ...

    Another facet of the "otaku genre'' in the anime.
    The first episode of this series left me stunned, it made me want to watch more and more. It was not just humor without sense, it was a well-focused argument. The rest of the series was the same.
    The design of characters was lovely, and the op-end themes were good.
    I cannot tell more because this is an anime where someone has to watch and feel.

    First impressions! (A Review written on the Intent not to Spoil)
    Story: Everybody’s dream am I right? To get paid truckloads of money to read mangas and watch anime? I know I wouldn’t mind. In this story, Kanou Shinichi is asked to spread the “otaku culture” to a new world. At first I said that I didn’t see how this show would have any substance with the weak plot that it tried to create, however after the completion of the 2nd episode, I could see what this ...

    Lots of Potential Ep. 1
    No Spoilers.

    Having only seen the first episode: Lots of facepalm moments, funny dialogue, and good artwork.

    The funniest part is the main character's reaction to the new world he is in, but that could potentially get boring quickly if they don't keep the plotline strong. So long as they can avoid playing the same gag over and over this looks like it has lots of potential.

    I'm ...

    Not what I expected...
    I found this anime to be different from most other animes in which a guys goes to another world, but in a good way. They focused mainly in social problems and how to overcome them, while still providing the vieweres with very loveable characters.
    I would love for this series to continue, and I hope Crunchyroll will bring us season 2...soon.

    A true lye great anime
    This anime is great and totally worth the watch. There are so many references in this anime that it is almost impossible not to notice them (That's a good thing) My only complaint is that it's a little too short. This anime would if benefited greatly from a 24 episode season. I really hope an season 2 gets announced soon. This anime really deserves more seasons.
