Or you could order one off of AmiAmi. They won't be released until March, though.

The dishes are a bit uninspired, but it's still cool.

Not exactly what I think a chef would want to showcase.

I'm surpised there's a promotion like this in Akihabara for ZnT. Those are usually only for the shows that are super popular with otaku.

Even if the food was mediocre, if the maid dressd up as Louise also fed me the food while having another Louise maid yell at me...that would be perfect having both a tsun and dere Louise at the same time. haha....

The LNs were always good sellers, weren't they? I think the anime just did worse since it deviated so much.

ZnT is in the same boat as other long-running series that haven't seen anime adaptations in a while. Basically, the novels were hot four years ago, but have since tapered off in popularity.

As for the ZnT F dishes, they're part a concerted push to create one last sales boom.

Only JC staff series havn't been doing so well. Nisemonogatari sales will be the highest of winter season without doubt. ZnT 3 was only a year before Bakemonogatari after all. And while Aquarion Evol doesn't have a light novel source, the first series was 6-7 years ago, and it is doing pretty well so far.

We're referring to overall franchise popularity, particularly light novel sales.

Most of the popular series from the same era petered out, such as Spice & Wolf and Nogizaka Haruka. It's clear that only a small handful of franchises have staying power (i.e. Haruhi), while the rest rely on visible marketing to remain relevant.

Looking at Haganai, Infinite Stratos, and Index, I'd wager that they wouldn't last without the right promotion strategies and product timing.

Considering Index sales have only gone up (from ~10k first season to ~16-18k second season), and the New Testament light novels continue to be one of the best-selling LNs in its release, I would most certainly take you up on a such a wager.
