    Not sure if you saw my review of the HSI movie:

    And now to think of a way to do this for Little Busters review without getting deleted for too many images.

    lol, didn't know there was a social group. And I agree with you that her legs are one of Saki's best feature, so it's a shame to see them mostly hidden now. I have no idea what Ritz was thinking when she decided to make her wear long skirts.

    I know you're a big Superman fan. Did you know there is a main character called Kal-El (actually spelled like this) this season? In The pilot's love song. I thought you might want to know.

    Happy new year though it's a bit too late now

    Just wanted to say that I really like sayaka as a character,I have a thing for a tragically flawed characters like her and madoka magica is one of the best magical girl show I've seen in a long time.

    what did you think of this season ?

    You know, Riki and Kyousuke in Refrain reminded me of...

    I get what you're saying, I just can't help but think the new Rozen Maiden would have sold five times as much if it came out in 2008 or 2009. Really.

    Second, if your theory is correct, I think it's the bleakness of the stories in Rozen Maiden and Watamote that give them this hard hitting quality and can drive off audiences. Otherwise... I realize Oreki is essentially an "anti-otaku" in outlook, but he did prove you can go deep into the headspace of a loner and get decent sales if your show is a little warmer in tone (it's not just a matter of romance... Rozen Maiden 2013 hinted at one too). Hence, I don't think you should really be trying to extend it to cover things like Sakurasou.

    (Note, BTW, that the anime fandom has sometimes gotten behind extremely bleak stories about loners in the past. Hatedom aside, Evangelion alone proves that. But I think popular shows at the moment suggest this is no longer the "in" thing.)

    Ryuunosuke is such a minor character in Sakurasou I doubt he had much impact on its popularity. Unless you're implying Mashiro is so eccentric as to be otaku but she's a fairly popular character in her own right.

    (One interesting thing about Sakurasou: the director did a panel at Sakuracon and she spent a fair bit of time emphasizing to the audience that the story was cuter and less fanservicy than the trailer. To a certain extent, I wonder if the show mismarketed itself a bit.)

    Second: I really have trouble with the idea that the industry misread what made OreImo popular so badly. I think they're more on top of their game than that. Plus, Kirino and Kuroneko have a predecent in Lucky Star's Konata. It's hard to think of a similarly popular male otaku.

    As for the other three shows:
    For Outbreak Company, I think Japanese fans may well have like the protagonist, but disliked the overall treatment of otaku culture.
    Similarly, I think many otaku may have actually liked Jun in Rozen Maiden. But I think Rozen Maiden suffered from a combination of being quite lacking in lighthearted moments (similar to SSY, though I still hold SSY suffered from some marketting failures as well) and "pulling a Shana III" and releasing after a long hiatus from the anime world.
    Watamote, on the other hand actually did suffer from being extremely uncomfortable for many otaku IMO. It does have a large base in both the west and Japan, but I suspect that many of the otaku who relate best to Tomoko are among the less economically well off otaku and therefore are unlikely to be big spenders.

    So yeah... sorry, not sure I agree that much of your theory on the whole.

    If you had nominated Hazama (BlazBlue) for Best Antagonist I might have done so too. But as is, he probably has no real chance. However, I might nominate Monokuma. He was a great troll villain.
    Good god, I totally forgot about him. I shall definitely edit him in.
