BDs too expensive
Not enough lewds
That's literally the only way an anime CAN fail nowadays. All you need to do to sell BDs is put censored nudity int he show and then uncensor it for the BDs and price it below 100 dollars
I legit didn't find Nichijou that funny. I mean I enjoyed for a few episodes but it got boring. X happens and then some epic looking reaction to it. Probably got better I dunno.
you know when Chowder or Flapjack does the whole HIDEOUS CLOSEUP TO SHOW REACTION thing?
It's that. And normally that's not too bad, but that's ALL OF NICHIJOU'S PUNCHLINES, some over-detailed and stupidly over-the-top reaction.
Not what KyoAni fans wanted so BDs sold poorly. The rest of the anime community already had stuff like Crayon Shin Chan, Dororon Enma-kun, Cromartie High School or FLCL to fill their 'random humor' quota.
It just wasn't what the majority of the market wanted. Mitsudomoe also failed in the same year. Though I would claim Mitsudomoe had more than just random humor in its favor.
What do you mean?
