>Gets anime adaptation
>Director is a Hestiafag
>LN sales skyrocket and Hestia gets ton of doujins
>Still less popular than best girl Aiz in Konorano polls
The announcement in 2016 better be an Oratoria adaptation with a better staff. It'll sell more and is objectively better than the main series.
Whare are the polls results for the current one because I don't see them online. As far as popularity is concern I don't think the producer gives a damn since he already got more than enough of what he wanted on her getting a lot of official merch and artwork. Neither would the publisher unless the merch ain't selling.

Reading Oratoria has turned me into an Aisfag. People think she's boring because she's quiet, but her character really is the absolute opposite of vanilla. She's actually a female DOOMGUY who's only really soft around Loki familia and Bell.
>A side story of Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darou ka. It covers the story of the strongest 1st class adventurer "Sword Princess" Ais Wallenstein and her desire to reach even greater heights with her friends in the Loki Familia.
No wonder nips like her more then. Hestia doesn't do anything but lust over Bell.
I do wonder how that Hestia Merch is selling. If it's bombing then GA and the publishers of the merch will probably be slapping themselves on making so much Merch with her. She still continues to get new Merch from what I'm seeing.
Mikoto best girl again.
Yukino is going to further drop with how shitty she became in the latest vol.
It was hilarious how the director pushed Hestia so hard with the anime.
He literally cut everything about every other girl and added Hestia moments.
I love reading the LN because Hestia is irrelevant as fuck past volume 1.
But the people who worked on Danmachi did a fantastic job. I read the manga adaptation before the anime and thought it was mediocre but the anime is one of my personal favorite shows this year.
I'd definitely take an Oratoria adaptation though
Both the manga and anime adapt the LN. So comparing the anime to the LN to rate the quality is comparing an adaptation to another adaptation. I prefer manga to LN too in general but that's bullshit.
