Uma Musume S2 is the greatest selling late-night anime of all time, beating giants like Bakemonogatari, Madoka Magica, and Attack on Titan.

THAT GOOD, huh?  
Well, then…I’m prolly gonna pick up Uma Musume S2 about a decade from now, once the hype has settled down.  
I love good series with great complex characters, but I don’t like watching it with errbody.
 
Trash anime, violent anime, hentai, generic fantasy rpg, and meme anime I’m okay with watching it the same year it comes out. Good anime? The one everybody praises for its actual quality? Then I’ll watch it later.
 
Reason is because I’m an uneducated, smol brain casual and me enjoying a good show actually makes me feel absolutely inadequate. It’d be like walking into a restaurant or community who is frequented by people way better than me.
 
Guess I’ll have to put Uma Musume on my 2030 list.

i mean do you have sales figures for Monogatari relative to other big name late night anime so I can throw that at people on MAL
 
iunno what it is with monogatari fans but they really tend to want to act like they’re watching megaobscure, arthouse shit

So basically, SHAFT fans.
 
They’re one in the same
 
More than that Gatarifa(n)s just tend to be an absolute plague, to a far greater extent than Madoka or fuckin’ iunno, SZS or Natsu no Arashi - yes, all 4 fans of NnA
 
I really dislike Monogatari fandom, years of arguing over the exact same bullshit about application of fanservice with them and putting up with the Holier-than-Thou attitude they have towards other H&E series - assuming they don’t come up with absurd bullshit to try to deny it is one, it’s a 50/50 chance - has really wore my nerves
 
Watching Monogatari is for REAL anime fans that don’t just watch NARUTO and the ecchi is SYMBOLIC and HAS MEANING SO ITS OK and watching it makes your shit stop stinking, idk
 
You’d think it was a small studio, arthouse passion project with the way they talk about it, and not an ultra corportized, heavily merchandised anime that has a near full adaptation and THREE very clearly high budget movies
 
Hell the first season has over one million members on MAL and you can’t fucking escape the horde of Shinobu pfps online if you tried, I promise you’ve all seen at least 5 if you’re active in the anime fandom outside of this thread, even to a small degree
 
Honestly laziness is the only reason I haven’t changed my 5 or 6 year old PFP on this site, if this place had more visibility and wasn’t a niche within a niche I would jet right to it on account of fear of association with Monogatari fans

It’s being reported the 99,002 number Uma Musume reportedly sold in its first week is false. They actually sold 112,030 in its first week.
 
By comparison sake, Bakemonogatari has sold 110,502 BD/DVD copies over its entire run, while Evangelion has sold 210,000 copies.

9th Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY 56,760
 
SEED. DESTINY.
 
Were the other 10x better Gundam series aired at a different time slot or something? SEED DESTINY is kinda bad by Gundam SEED Standard. Those were sales figure right? so probably other factors other than the actual quality of the series were at play here.
 
Seed Destiny is, oh god why kinda bad, ESPECIALLY in the latter third of its run.
