Now, I didn't know there were actually 'solid amount of fans' who actually 'enjoyed' Nichijou. Wow. I was... actually surprised. Nichijou is possibly, one of the biggest - financial - failure you can ever expect in anime industry in recent years. Well, it won't bring Kyoani down since they still have glorious K-ON MOVIE ready for otaku rush, but knowing HOW MUCH FUCKIN MONEY MONEY MONEY they basically poured into, this is just laughable.
We had AMAZING animation with AMAZING budget, 2-cour length, OPENING SEQUENCE changing EVERY EPISODE, KADOKAWA'S outspoken, blunt and mindless marketing in order to make this animation into new trend in FORCE, not satisfying the need of consumers by including almost zero percent appeal for the merchandise, SHIT ORIGINAL CONTENT with SHIT DIRECTION and HORRIBLE pacing, unfunny comedy with tat WHATEVER HELVETICA SHIT THING and lastly, INFINITE AMOUNT OF BORDOM. That's the component of Nichijou.
(...it got better I admit. 2nd cour was definitely better than 1st cour,... until that HELVETTICRA thing came back.)
Well, I'm angry at this series, but not as angry as I did for Angel Beats, since sales OBVIOUSLY showed that people do know that it is a disaster created by impudent, pretentious Kadokawa and mannerism by Kyoani.
The thing that is lolworthy is that the logics that Kyoani fans use is basically something like;
"NONE MOE ANIMATION DID NOT SELL WELL = JAPANESE INDUSTRY SUCKS!"
"Good show never sell well, thus Nichijou is a good show!"
"I will become Kyoani's loyal fan, because they sacrificed Moe for the sake of creating good show!!'
"Sales is not a indication of reputation of Kyoani!"
What a twisted logics. IF SERIES WON'T SELL, IT MEANS NOTHING. Shit animation leads financial failure, and it leads to another shit animation. That's how it is. Kyoani lost its reputation by creating pretentious series that does not match with exaggerated marketing. Especially for them, even one failure is risky knowing how their business goes on. (They barely creates more than a single series in a year.) If you are particular fan of certain studio, those comments are the WORST way to support it.
Kadokawa is a bigger idiot, anyway. They trusted Kyoani way too much. Foolish. So foolish.
Edited: Lol what the fuck. Why people like to copy and paste my blog post so much. Not that I hate it since ima attention whore.
