The mystery of Natsu no Arashi’s unpopularity

Remember this show? It aired in 2009, a season before Bakemonogatari. It’s an adaptation by Jin Kobayashi of School Rumble fame. The production team is SHAFT. There’s supposed to be at least a legitimate interest for this. Mysteriously though, no one gave a fuck.

. . . Why?

I really can’t fathom how not a lot of people know this anime. Maybe when it aired, people were turned off immediately? The first episode was a bit of a troll. Then again so is this season’s Dusk Maiden of the Amnesia yet not a lot of people are turning their backs here.

I’m not saying Natsu no Arashi is a hidden masterpiece or anything but its just so mysterious that not many people watched it. What’s weirder is that it even got itself a second season (knowing SHAFT though it was probably split cour but still).

  1. Added to PtW. It seems to have a decent score too, at 7.5, which for me means “not bad, not great”. I generally add anything to PtW that I see mentioned on a blog and sounds remotely interesting, and merely the fact that the show is SHAFT would’ve satisfied that requirement, which means that I probably haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere until now.
