For something they're trying raise up as the "next king of shonen" 300k average is definitely meh.

I didn't know Crunchyroll was part of Shueisha. Crazy. The more you know I guess.

Isn't 300k average what most other fairly popular series like Food wars and World trigger do? I still fail to see how these numbers are average, but hey if you guys say so.

Food Wars was already pretty big before the anime though. I remember it selling 400k average.

I don't see what you are trying to say here, but yea a person can always be an ass. Wishing for the underdog to succeed is still a good cause. So I guess you agree.
