Producers in the anime industry are scrambling after the realization that they had accidentally released all of the actually good “cute” shows all in one season.
While the anime industry typically coordinates to only release one or two decent cute shows per season alongside the typical 8 shit ones, this season there was a miscommunication and all studios only released their A-game cute shows, causing a general lack of non-cute shows and an over-saturation of kawaii that has already sent dozens of otaku to the hospital with diabetes.
Industry analyst Yamakawa Ai theorized that the influx was caused when studios noticed that Kyoto Animation and Doga Kobo were not releasing cute shows this season.
“Every studio has their idea for the perfect cute show, but no one wants to compete with the juggernauts. I believe everyone saw their chance and wound up all competing with each other at once,” said Yamakawa.
“This season has somehow managed to have two different shows about a group of small children, two different iyashikei anime about girls who enjoy the outdoors, and still have other actually watchable cute shows like Hakumei to Mikochi, Miira no Kaikata, and Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san. At least we can be thankful that Project No.9 could be relied upon to air at least one shit anime about a cute child, Ryuuou no Oshigoto!”
Due to this crisis, doctors in Tokyo are suggesting that any otaku who attempts to watch all of these shows counterbalance their feelings of coziness by remembering the last few episodes of Devilman Crybaby every so often.
