  1. No, it definitely won’t be the next big shoujo anime. With ZEXCS at the helm, there is not much hype to the show even with the manga being quite popular. A shoujo anime will pull paltry sales unless the manga is popular and the studio working on the anime has a good reputation.

    • That’s true. I haven’t read the manga but I heard the sales aren’t so good. I guess they’re hoping this anime will attract people. Unfortunately, it’s just too cheezy for me.

      • Actually, the manga is a big hit. What I meant to imply was that because ZEXCS is working on the anime, that would mean that the anime would have low sales figures because shoujo anime need an established fanbase as well as a studio with a good reputation working on it. Even Kimi ni Todoke, which is a titan in the manga format, pulled above average sales as an anime, showing just how hard it is to generate a profit from them. I expect all three of the main shoujo from October to pull rather dismal sales.
