can someone explain to me why this thing is so popular?
I haven't watch it and this don't looks interesting
Watch it yourself and you'll get why.
>I haven't watch it and this don't looks interesting
>All male cast and a lot of homo undertones (fujoshi bait)
I bet 80% of osomatsu fans must be girls
>I kinda doubt old grannies are a major BD selling audience.
This is shameless fujo show. It implied at the beginning of series when they make fun of Haikyuu & Idol boy anime.
I almost puke at episode 16, though.
The thing is is that a wide range of ages are enjoying this show.
I've seen old people talking about it for the nostalgia (Akatsuka had a huge impact on gag manga, anime adaptations of his manga are still widely available) AND young people who like it for its characters.
Another point to make is that the 60's cartoon version of characters is way more popular than the 'ikemen' idol versions.
all star male cast + funny character interactions (aka fujo material) + insanely popular/nostalgic anime that has been known in Japan for years, created by the 'god of gag manga' = this
I started watching it because it was legitimately funny, the first cour was better but it still delivers. Only later did I discover it's by the same director of Gintama, so it explains a lot.
Don't visit the threads, though, it's filled with fujoshi and general gay shit, the show itself is barely discussed.
A rare matsu
