Can you even imagine if they were that literal with this gimmick to end it on the eighth episode? It would kind of be a little funny in a sad (for the anime industries creative processes) sort of way. Either way this has definitely been a low point in anime trends for me in recent years. Especially because by DVD time I'm sure it will prove beyond a reasonable doubt the theory that name and an ideal (moe?) tradition sells before anything else to the coveted Otaku demographic. A likely reality that I'm unsure if a lot of people are equipped to rationalize and accept when confronted by it face to face.

I just hope that in spite of nigh inevitable merchandising success that other companies will recognize the reason for it and not attempt a copycat of this gimmick.

On with the show then.....
