I don't think Kagami's the type to use troll tactics for sale so there should be some truth to this ...

In other words, Fujimi Shobo will continue to get screwed by ZEXCS who now thinks they did a good job. I will keep to my words too though and will forgive ZEXCS for everything they did to this series if a future character is animated correctly.
I would prefer not to believe that Kagami is the type to play to those kinds of tactics either, but I suppose any further speculation at this point is pretty much useless. We'll just have to wait for the official numbers to come out and see where to go from there.

But that's the thing, I don't think they will ever release store sales record, which comes down to either you take their word for it or you don't. Unless they really decide to do season 2 in that case that would prove there are enough profits to gain from the series but I wouldn't know what to think they would do with the series by then ...

I didn't watch many ZEXCS-made shows, except for Omamori Himari, which was pretty good (if we don't count the ending...). Were their other work similar to Itsuka Tenma?

I'm a skeptic by nature, so I prefer facts over something as wavering a person's word any day of the week. In any case, let's ask ourselves this: Why did they go out of their way to proclaim that sales for a particular store chain were doing well when the actual sales records themselves might never be released? Rather curious, if nothing else.

Besides, why would there be such a difference between in-store ordering and online pre-orders if the series were doing well? This becomes even more confusing when you see that plenty of other anime series, many of them current and some from the previous season, all hold strong to their popularity in terms of their online rankings.

Am I to believe that Itsu-Ten's anime is an exception to this? Granted its 1st volume seemed to be doing a bit better in the past few days, but now it's steadily falling back to near 300th place sales-wise.

In any case, with respect to what facts are available to us, all this clamor that Itsu-Ten is doing well just doesn't seem to add up to me.

And with regards to what you said about a 2nd season, such a thing is a far-off dream to ZEXCS in its current state, Itsu-Ten or not. It would be very surprising to see such a thing.

Himari....? I suppose it was ok but like Itsuten and FA, it was far inferior to the manga....

The last good one they ever did IMO was H2O

I'm not in any position to know what's happened with ZEXCS since H2O, but right now they need to stay away from plot-heavy stories and stick to what they're good at.

Take Macademi Wasshoi for example. Here's a series with virtually no plot whatsoever, but a decent watch with its humorous and amusing approach; granted you're going to need a bit of thick skin to watch through certain episodes (to those of you that have watched it, you know what I mean).

They've have plenty of chances to refine themselves with series such as Chrome Shelled Regios, Omamori Himari, and even our own Itsu-Ten, all of which feature an underlying an ever evolving plot, and it's just not working. They've had their chances and they just can't hack it.

Lol Kurosu likes love triangles. Since he said Haruka isn't an outsider does he know that she's possessed by that observer. They showed those 2 guys again this time trying to break the barrier, hopefully they introduce them soon. Izumi has grown on me, she's helpful. Stupid Taito practically threw Himea under the bus this time. Tough for her to hear Haruka confess to him.

Himea feeling down since Haruka arrived.
Night games were pretty funny & interesting ^^ especially when Mirai was involved!
That sensei sure has a special personality. Guess one of his specialties is dropping hints & doubts. Himea vs Haruka for Taito! Now that is an interesting rivalry!

Kurosu is as strong as always. Nice teamwork by Gekkou at the end. Poor Himea she had to sacrifice herself. Well at least the observer will be gone from Haruka. Wonder how Taito will rescue Himea.

Haha, ahhaha. I don't understand what this brand new series is about anymore. They should have just made it original right from episode 1. I'll just look forward to seeing Ferris again in the crossover.

The damsel in distress needs to be rescued again.

Oh hell I never saw that one coming, so unexpected it would have never occured to me...



Why didn't they just make an OVA? Instead of making a 1X episode series with an incredibly repetitious plot.

Seeing Himea once again chained up and in need of rescue made me feel I was watching the time loop arc of the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

xD I like this anime, but is always the same:
Himea: Nooooo! Taito
Taito: I'll protect you Himea
Lol, i prefer gekkou and mirai and i think they are best couple than Taito and Himea -w-
Also it seems to be that it does not follow the novel, so normal that many people drop this anime xD
