I'll be the first to admit that I don't like what Fractale is turning into after getting all worked up over it, but please read the article you're quoting before bashing away. Yamamoto Koji is not Yamakan. I actually applaud Yamamoto Yutaka for sticking with it the way he did, but the show seriously needed a bigger budget and two cours, and it's ending in a pretty disappointing manner with the level of sophistication it has shown throughout the series. I guess I partially blame my expectations for that, but seeing AnimeSuki users grasping for straws, trying to make sense of the story and where it was heading, I imagine casual viewers and the Noitamina demographic found it completely baffling. I believe this wasn't Yamakan's intent.

Why do you think garbage like Angel Beats!, K-ON! and OreImo sells? It's relatable to the yet undeveloped minds of the middleschool demographic.
