It allegedly has 11k pre-orders on Amazon...I seriously have this was people diving into pre-ordering volume 1 without knowing how it would turn out. Hopefully it tanks after Volume 2, because if something this poorly handled profits, it's going to be one of the biggest blights on the industry in recent years...
The figures that Westlo and stuopidget say they saw on Amazon are:
Fate/Zero - 13k
Persona 4 - 11k
Horizon - 10k
Boku wa Tomodachi - 6k
I'm wondering how such a POS anime such as Persona 4 exists. I've watched a number of crappy series for the lulz, but Persona is like devoid of entertainment (and animation-- the subtitle is clearly a lie)
It's one of the worst anime I've watched in the past few years if we go by entertainment value. And that includes random campy stuff like MD Geist and its not so awesome sequel.
I haven't seen LE Fam episode 2 yet, but it's good that you liked it. I hope my fears of the franchise being infected by some of the more questionable aspects of modern anime are just that.
lol I don't even notice GC was noitaminA; and yea Inori is a horrifically overrated character that I don't really understand the appeal outside of a hawt character design. But the production values are great enough that I'm willing to give it more of a chance. OP does indeed suck balls...
The preview link in my sig is my initial thoughts about the 23 shows I tried. I do posts about my thought of each new episode on my blog.
As of today:
Chihayafuru - 9/10 (3 eps)
Last Exile: Fam the Silver Wing - 8.5/10 (2 eps) (Episode 2 REALLY gets things going on all levels)
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai - 8/10 (3 eps) (Episode 3 shows Kodaka is a non-generic guy and Sena learns some lessons she needed to learn. Yozora is still too stubborn to learn them.)
Fate/Zero - 7.5/10 (4 eps). I'd be enjoying it far more if they didn't spend 10 yers flaunting dialogue between every sword swing and action or cut between 5 scenes during a fight, etc. I don't mind its troll nature because Rider is awesome, Saber is charming and Irisviel is touching. But flock...the dialogue spam is hindering my enjoyment so much. Episode 4 REALLY lowered my score for the series.
Mirai Nikki - 7.5/10. (3 eps) Was at least 8/10 after 2 episodes but Episode 3 was way too soft. Episode 4 had better get the bloodshed and plot back.
UN-GO - 7/10. Great world setting and potentially good plot but characters are doing stuff all. Need to develop them or I drop it.
Squid Girl - 7/10. More of the same. Amusing to watch amongst friends. That's about it. I never rewatch this show.
Dropped Guilty Crown. Found it offensive and lacking any remotely interest/appealing character whatsoever. Shu is an emo, Gai is a prick, Inori is a sex doll. Good voice talent being poorly used, terrible fanservice attempts and at inappopriate times. I really don't like the music. *shrug* Just not my thing. And this shouldn't be a noitaminA show...
