Shinichi needs to teach Myucel and Brooks the concept of windows.

There's really no reason for Brooks to hulk-smash the wall since they can just break the windows and climb in.

Myucel then tells Brooks to wait underneath the window of the library. Yet, poor Brooks is left waiting while she cries over Shinichi, instead of dragging him to the windows and letting him down into the waiting arms of Brooks. C'mon, the place is burning down! Crying over Shinichi is not going to extinguish the fire. It's clear that part was just drama for the sake of drama.

I am also glad they didn't shy from touching some serious subjects (a little too superficially for my taste), while keeping up with more marketable elements. It's a step to the right (for me) direction... oh! and Myuseru gave some excellent pointers to keep in mind

Also the MC broke some troupes, for example the idealist/naive -> loser/idiot... or maybe resurrected/refined a dead one, since there used to be characters like that when I was a kid.

PS: I read that the original novel was from the same author as polyphonica... cool, she/he is one of the few that got better along the way.

Are we sure about their ages? I don't recall the age of any of the students or others outside the main cast being revealed, with the exception of that one dwarf kid. For all we know, Romilda and the elves could be the same age as Petrarca.

Also, one thing I couldn't help but feel when watching the last couple eps is, I wonder if there were Jesuit priests in Japan (or America) who experienced similar disillusionment and shock. Sure, some of them knowingly went in with negative intentions or superior attitudes, but surely some went with a real desire to spread their faith in good faith, and to realize that their altruistic intentions were used to aid in gaining power over foreign lands would have been a painful experience I'm sure.

One major question, which may have been answered and I didn't spot it: what was the rare issue of Comptiqle thing referring to?

1) dont you remember around episode 2-4 when he went around town and saw the kids? There were kids of all races getting training ( since there are some national disputes with the bordering nations or something like that ) since it allows them to be part of society easier (kinda like Sparta i guess)

When Portuguese Catholics and Jesuits arrived in Japan in late 1540s, they swiftly established a foothold and gained many converts in Kyushu. The Portuguese and Dutch brought the gun, which the Japanese quickly adopted.

While some feudal lords probably desired only guns from the Europeans, there was genuine friendship as well. Oda Nobunaga was known to be very friendly with the Europeans. Date Masamune, popularly known as the one-eyed dragon, was known to intervene personally to save the life of missionary Padre Sotelo from Tokugawa Ieyasu. He allowed the missionaries to preach in his provinces and even sent a ship to establish relations with the Pope in Rome. This is especially remarkable since, although Japan is an island nation, Japan never had a ship sail so far before. His eldest daughter Iroha was believed to be a Christian.

It was only after Tokugawa Ieyasu unified Japan that he began to outlaw Christianity. After many years of constant warfare, the people desired peace and stability, and Christianity was seen as a dividing force. However, some Japanese Christians did not give up their faith and continued to practice in secret. They became known as Kakure Kirishitan (or the hidden Christians). When Japan opened up in the 19th century and Christianity was once again allowed, the Ōura Church was built to commemorate the faithfulness of these believers. When word that tens of thousands of Kakure Kirishitan came out of hiding reached Pope Pius IX, he declared it was "the miracle of the Orient".

Well no sequel for this less than 2694 copies of the 1st volume sold which is a colossal flop.

This season looks to be one of the worst for flops in years.

I guess there won't be a season 2.

I really liked this series not so much because of the characters, but on the questions it presented. There are too many "what-ifs" that I thought about whenever I watched this:

"what if instead of a loli we got a war freak emperor as the head of eldant?"
"what if japan just killed off all the native inhabitants of that world and took a whole world to themselves by using a biological weapon?"
"what if they just gave everyone cannons and flintlocks and have everyone go to war with each other, the swoop in with m16 rifles and tanks and kill off the survivors?"
"what if they just killed the entire royal family and ruled eldant, much like something that happened before?"

and so on. But still, miusel acting cute really made this one interesting.

As for the darker versions of Outbreak Company, I have a fanfic idea that, unfortunately, I will probably be to busy to write, or at least, too busy to finish.

Outbreak Company: Black Ops

Note: this has nothing to do with Call of Duty (except for the military theme).

Anyway, the basic premise is that the story follows a squad of JSDF special forces sent on a series of highly classified missions in Eldant, known only about by the highest echelons of the JSDF and the Japanese government. Many of their operations are also conducted without the knowledge of the Eldantian government, though later in the series, some ops intended to destabilize Bahailam by supporting a peasant revolt, will occur with the knowledge of the Eldantian government. Note: as seen in the profiles below, the unit often uses non-JSDF standard gear for their missions, for instance, a Barrett M82 anti-materiel rifle to eliminate mages before they can put up their bulletproof shields.

Mission Ideas


A joint op with the Eldantians to track down the terrorists responsible for the attack on Shinichi's school.

A mission beyond the borders of Bahailam, arming a peasant revolt with simple gunpowder weaponry in an attempt to destabilize the country.

A mission to eliminate a high ranking noble opposed to the presence of the Japanese in Eldant.

An operation to sabotage a stockpile a number of those magic bombs used by the anti-Japanese terrorists.

The failed operation to eliminate both Shinichi and Petrarca.

Possibly a mission shortly afterwords to covertly liberate an imprisoned Japanese soldier apprehended in the failed operation.

That's not necessarily true. If there's enough of a increase in the Light Novel sales, it'd be considered a success and the publisher could look into making a second season when there's enough LN material. A lot of these LN adaptations are really just advertisements for the source Light Novels.

2694 is far from a colossal flop. It isn't good for sure, but it isn't nearly that bad. It broke 4 digits, at the very least, which means it isn't a colossal flop.

A colossal flop is under 500. Of which we got a few this year, actually.

But sales numbers aren't a perfect proxy. Some series actually do enough TV views to greenlight a second season, even for late-night shows. If Outbreak Company helps LN sales, the series will end up booking a solid profit for the Anime production.

Not to necro if this is dead or anything, but did Koganuma, Minori (the JSDF glasses fujoshi oppai girl) actually have any moments in the LN that showed or hinted she had feelings for Shiniichi like the other girls in the harem?

And who's that girl with black hair and armor (IIRC) on one of the LN covers?

I was really hoping to find some LN summaries ^^". I don't think there's a lot of readers for this LN though. On BT for the polls we had a 99% wish to have it translated which was surprisingly a large 1000 something.
AND WHAT LAST VOLUME WAS RELEASED?!?! It says ongoing though on the Japanese wikipedia AND on the American wikipedia.

I guess no one who read the LN is interested in answering?

After watching the anime the first time I had high hopes for the LN to get better later on.
