I see even less people buying this series now. They should do a preorder count to see if it's even worth the trouble to release.

Oh, this will be interesting to compare once the BD box is out.

Not unexpected but still disheartening. Japan needs to lighten up.

It'll be easy to make changes to episode 1, since the GochiUsa parody manga only showed up at the very end of it.

Episode 2 was the highpoint of the show for me, because it made the most delightfully bizarre changes to the "source material" by having the in-universe "virus" turn the theme of rabbits (usagi) into eels (unagi). https://imgur.com/a/ZQQ82TX Since then it's become gradually less out-there. Episode 3 put the gothic lolita dolls of Rozen Maiden into tracksuits. Episodes 4, 5 and 6 did Ro-Kyu-Bu, The Ryuo's Work is Never Done, and Hamtaro, but in those cases the show simply added monsters to those worlds (and generically turned hamsters into monsters) rather than changing anything in a silly unexpected way, which had been what I'd hoped would happen based on episode 2.

Thanks to Japanese law, that kind of specific parody is rare enough that, at least when applied to something much less iconic than Gundam or Dragon Ball, I welcome it - even at this inane Friedberg/Seltzer level. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Friedberg_and_Aaron_Seltzer#Filmography

Huh,I was under the impression that all the parodies they done was within the knowledge&permission of the right holders,apparently it's not?
They were asking for troubles then.

... Japan does not have a parody exception or provision in its copyright law. ...

So since the show contains other parody material, but only these two episodes are affected, does that mean the copyright holders of Is the Order a Rabbit? specifically complained? If this was lawyers getting antsy about imagined possible future lawsuits, I'd think the whole series would have disappeared into a black hole, not just the first two episodes.

Dude, for posting a link to a screenshot, the National Police have filed for a John Doe extradition to prosecute you, then they'll have you declared persona non grata and expelled. Oh no! I reposted it. Now I'm screwed, too. Well, for hosting the link, ANN should be shuttered within the week. Doom. Everybody dies. The End
