Was Shakugan no Shana ever popular? I read from magazine and the wikipedia article that it was actually pretty popular but whenever i ask other otaku about it, they say they've never heard of it.

JC Staff botched the adaptation.

I liked it, but don't try to think too hard about the plot.

It's those kind of 'famous character of the season' like hestia or megumin

It was massively popular here.

Not really, no. It was popular for years.

Nigga, Shana is literally the reason for those battle LN romcom/harem adaptations.

Shana put Rie Kugimiya on the map

I'm pretty sure that while Naru from Love Hina is the prototypical modern tsundere, Shana is the absolute perfect example of it.

Andrew Turner

implying someone like OP knows what a tsunderie even is

They did manage to sell 8.6 million copies of the light novels.

I wasn't asking if the character was popular but rather if the work itself was popular. I already knew that Shana basically created the archetypical Tsundere but other than her, what do otaku remember about the show?

Easton Lewis
Easton Lewis

Oh well no, nobody remember Shana anymore because it ended and there was a big gap between S2 and 3 so people stopped giving a shit but it was popular for a long time

but other than her, what do otaku remember about the show?
No it's just Shana

Parker Hall
Parker Hall

Are you serious? It's not Code Geass R2 popular, but it really popular still. Shana was the start that set of the explosive hype of Rie's tsunloli popularity and Shana herself dominated quite a lot in polls, saimoe, and things like that in Japan.

Daniel Martinez

If nothing else, the series' ost was godly.

You referring to the first season stuff? Because after reading the novels, I honestly prefer the anime version.
Also, Shana a cute.

Sounds like you hang out with faux-taku tumblrtards who started watching anime in 2013 to get in on the Attack on Titan fad. In which case you're probably just like them.

Shana was a huge deal in 2005 and for many years after that, it's still got a dedicated following in fact. It was a trendsetting anime for light novel adaptations. It's impossible to not know about it if you were at all involved in anime during the mid 00s.

Leo Jones

Those who don't know about Shana and of the era she once reigned makes me physically sick.

Carson Anderson
Carson Anderson

I was. However, I'm asking this question bc I see less and less threads on 00's anime than before. I don't think I've seen any threads on Gurren Lagann this entire year. I feel that otaku are forgetting about those shows and shifting their attention to more recent moe shows. idk, I preferred when there was more variety back then.

Isaiah Price

Cameron Sullivan

haha, no. I realize that I'm a dying breed of otaku. I am honestly disappointed with the direction is taking. Every year I see the same moe crap being cranked out by the same studios. to make matters worse, modern otaku only care about shows that pander to moe addicts and waifu lovers. I makes me sick. I realize that moe isn't a new concept but it has become the status quo. The Cowboy Bebops, the Evangelions, the Full Metal Alchemists are being replaced by the same last crap and no studio is trying anything creative.

You do realize that this has been said about every form of media, in every age, since the cavemen started drawing shit on walls, right?
In 10000 BCE I guarantee there was a caveman who looked at the drawing in the cave he just found, and said the caveman equivalent of "literally nothing but waifus, fucking moefags ruin everything."

Josiah Nguyen

Jonathan Evans

The level of elitism in this board
Miyazaki was right. Anime is dying and otaku are the ones that are killing it. You niggas refuse to watch anything that doesn't have moe, waifus, thunders,etc... Those have been done to death. But since no otaku are buying anything SLIGHTLY new and original, animation studios have to produce the same tired harem and moe anime over and over. Thanx guys for ruining it for everyone.

Luis Torres

Nigga I'm 18 alright. Proof that none of you faggots can tell the difference between a grown man and a 12-year old at a PC. Seriously, I don't know which board is worse: Sup Forums, /pol/ or /b/?

Tyler Kelly
Tyler Kelly

Do you have any definitive proof that says that those who watch moe shows refuse to watch anything else? Or are you just projecting?

And by the way, what anonymous posters on Sup Forums care about has about zero impact on what kind of anime gets produced.

Jordan King
Jordan King

Explain why I only see moe anime coming out every year with only one or two non-mow anime that are actually worth watching. Trust me, if I could do anything to stop this flood of mediocrity, I would.

Owen Myers
Owen Myers

I'm sure Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion and Full Metal Alchemist had a form of moe in it. Just not the in you face Kawaii~ Uguu~ that you think moe is.

Josiah Lewis
Josiah Lewis

So you're new and/or underage.

Juan Cooper
Juan Cooper

For every Bebop, there was a hundred shows of pure dogshit. If you think the average quality of anime was higher in the past, you're just retarded. Watch more anime, faggot.

Parker Miller
Parker Miller

Because it's what sells stuff. Anime make most of their profit from selling merchandise, and moe anime have the most desperate fans willing to buy the most figurines and dakimakuras.

Get out.

Brody Stewart

What is your definition of moe anime? Because I don't agree with your premise that only "one or two non-moe anime" come out per year.

Chase Young

I thought about posting it, but I didn't feel like it because OP gave away his newfaggotry too obviously.

It was popular solely because of the S OVAs. Shit was so fucking hilarious.

Shana was big enough that it was one of the handful of light novel adaptations to actually get a third season, unlike a certain other series whose fans are perennially left in the lurch.

Colton Allen
Colton Allen

I picked an anime at random from the summer 2016 selection on Myanimelist. Pic related is what i mean by moe. Notice that Fate Kaleidf is on its 3rd season? How come this crap gets a third season while more deserving shows don't?

Justin White
Justin White

Just checked back. Its on its FOURTH season, jesus christ

Ryan Gray

Who knows?

I'm just waiting for the incoming wave of butthurt from yurifags when Shirou hijacks the show.

It'll be the biggest mass triggering since Touma took over Season 2 of Railgun in mid-2013.

Ethan Richardson

Maybe I just have to accept it. Anime today caters to a different demographic than me. Maybe its time to abandon anime. The shows turned to crap, the fandom turned to crap(not that it was very good to begin with), maybe I should pick up something else. Maybe I'll pick up fucking bitches as a hobby.

Maybe its not moe that is the problem. Maybe the problem is that the medium is saturated with harem anime that takes the place of other genres.
