I find it interesting that the popularity of certain shows within a niche genre can somehow infer that said genre is dead. I'd think it would be quite the opposite, hmmm?

Though I almost wanna call this overkill. How many other series have had OVAs coming out concurrently with a tv series airing, rather than as a follow-up? I imagine it can't be more than a dozen, if even close to that many.

Happening rather frequently lately. There was Night Raid just recently, and Darker Than Black's first OVA came out 1 month after its second season run. Yeah, the numbers are low, but perhaps because they're just beginning to pick up this habit.

Hollywood should really consider doing forbidden love incest stories more, as it seems to be a popular theme nowadays, especially since they're now outsourcing their new ideas anyways. Laughing

Otaku still have money to spend, and concidering that very few Japanese ever have brothers, or sisters anymore, that fantasy would have a large enough market to make a bit of money off of. Any port in a storm. Wink

Fixed? Looking at Japanese census data from 2005, 57.0% of Japanese women over 15 are married. So, one would expect about a quarter of all Japanese to have wives, assuming negligable rates of polygamy and exogamy. Statistics aren't presented for Otaku separately.

Also, about a quarter of households have four or more members, so siblings aren't as rare as all that.

Take a look at http://www.stat.go.jp/english/index.htm.

While I would like to see it to since I am a fan of the show and the manga, I'm about 99.99% sure that neither will come across the pacific.

Unless Hollywood picks up the adaptation rights! They pick up anything popular in the world now! But who would be the young actresses? Laughing
