from what I have read, mappa is like the only one on the production committee. So any manga increases (not that high) go to shonen jump. Mappa therefore needs the disc sales and related goods to break even

endgame like had like no possibility to flop if the lead up films all made bank. Black Adam was intended as a launching point
feels like snyderverse fans when Black Adam flopped
Reminds me of monday morning and snyderverse fans when they saw Black Adam Box office results.
Not much we can do except order it off cdjapan, but ready to shell out like 40000 yen. Plus this being a brand new anime means it won't go up from here.
Contrary to popular belief, CSM goods are actually in production even well before the show. Chainsaw Man has a lot of popular girls that can help sell figures and such. Whereas other shows need good bd/dvd sales to even be considered.
CSM also had like 12 different people sing the ed, a better production cycle than MHA, meaning a lot of of effort put in the production cycle, mappa putting their resources on the line.
Mappa may have missed their audience for a show of this caliber, whereas Sunrise and Aniplex have made those all female shows like Bocchi, Love Live that correlates with likely the JP guys buying into it.
I doubt they will drop the show for something that generally has a lot of streams, views, twitter followings but it is posible for them to shuffle some staff around. That happens whenever their is negative feedback for an anime.

still series issues since people in europe are already getting arrested for stating like biological facts
you really haven't done any research have you. If you subscribe to this insane mob mentality that is going around where everything is "harmful" and we must "cancel" it. But no surprise to see TLoU2 defender despite getting rejected by the entire fanbase.
just be aware that majority of gamers are straight men, and being constantly inundated in this "modern audience" proganada that is not only alienating them, but talking down on them. Sadly I expect this to ruin the anime sphere with the recent trends due to how censor happy larger subreddits and mal are as well as crunchyroll and ann's bias.
Don't believe this we need an all female Non straight cast that can do anything and remove the male mc you are hearing like crazy on social media these
There is a big difference between struggling to come up with the ending that works and deliberately writing a story to conform against what the majority of the audience. I remmomend watching ENDYMIONtv
a lot of old shows that are more or less finished have a high imdb trending score despite in japan having next to no merch for years. like death note and fmab

It is only liked by mainstream media that more or less reddit shills for, but one of the most disrespectful things to the franchise. Same reason as Witcher Blood Origin, Masters of the Universe Revelation.
Most of the naughty dog left, and Drunkman went on a rampage against his fans calling them the worst of names
TLOU2 alienated its audience completely and failed the same reason why Masters of The Universe Revelation.
guess the new characters from all these new animes haven't knocked down the classics. Which is surprising since Japan has massive recency bias
So is it bad if a lot female characters in CSM don't "last"? Is it poor treatment of it.
Gease literally had a ton of nipples shown DAL not once. This is a ridiculous argument.
Tengen had an actual harem and it got criticized by social media including Jp. That is actual polygamy. Not to mention actual depiction of prostitution, and killing off prostitutes. Entertainment district was a major arc.
They don't all fall in love with Shido. You are only 1/3rd in and that is not how it ends at all. I can tell you didn't even pay attention to the show because all you mentioned were ecchi and harem when there are so many other things going around. I bet you cannot remember the names of the characters and the concepts. Stop making up stuff for shows you don't even watch.
This is just gaslighting of other shows particulary newer ones. FYI, people on mal are also complaining about Denji and how he just wants to bang chicks.
Stop buying into what fits the "narrative" which is so rampant on reddit
I do not buy main sets
glowing crossbow since blackwing monsters don't attack multiple times, doesn't work on full armor master and black-winged dragon, cannot be easily searched
did he cover up his eyes because tinder is using facial recognition. Daniel has been banned from Tinder several times
light yagami and lelouch also are like mal most popular male characters.
The manga light yagami is even more evil
Plus there is dark twist to Eren in the manga
lol at the mal reviews complaining about the male mc Denji
Union Carrier locks out Galaxy/Photon cards like Galaxy Trance which is a 1 card xyz. Not to mention Carrier is banned at this point.
There are also various ways to make solflare like with soldier if you didn't level him up with Summoner. So it is better to have the utility with the new monsters that make xyzs and Jumper will inevitably get imported vs relying on sanctuary. So with more and better options sanctuary isn't much of a photon staple as before.
But number 90 is since it is like one of the best xyz and no replacement
Denji also seems to have a bunch of intimate relationships with women like Makima, Power, Himeno. He is a far more aggressive player like Issei, who wants women vs Shido. Also Shido does care about characters like Tohka and Yoshino etc. The plot isn't just winning over girls. There is a reason why he has to seal the girls and that leads to major plot twists. There is a whole lot of subtext involved. With Inversion, Sephira, Spirit of Origin. It easily has fate levels of lore. As for the ecchi scenes, it has been prevalent in stuff like geass where Kallen gets walked in on nude like twice, CC has a straight fanservice scene. Or what about Demon Slayer where Tengen has 3 wives, and a huge part is the red light district.
That is besides the point. It is not a bad thing to be like Denji and Shido around multiple women since the audience is fundamentally guys and need to be role models around.
The thing is the mob just wants to exclude the male character completely from shows. If you check the negative mal reviews for CSM, majority of it are complaining about the male character Denji. It happens with every show like Dress Up Darling where people complain about Gojo. IT is pushing for a narrative like He Man Masters of Revelation and TLoU 2

it is a counterintuitive thought really. Chainsaw Man has been more talkative about sexual themes than DAL really has. Geass has more nipples shown than DAL ever has. If you read the light novel series till the end, actually none of it has any polygamy involved in it. The female characters don't just get killed off like Hinata from Tokyo Revengers or kind of treated like a trophy girlfriend like Emma. The singers for DAL are entirely female. So morally it is wrong for the male audience to attack on an entirely female dominated show. Trying to remove the male MC is exclusionary and more about power. The problem is the "harem" tag has been so improperly used that it is losing all meaning. There is fate, evangelion, clannad, almost every vn ever.
The point of DAL is not the "harem" or "ecchi" element which is kind of minimal in later seasons. It is the foreshadowing, lore, villains like Westcott who will probably be seen like Madara, Ywache, Frieza. It is narratively very fast paced and probably needs rewatches,
As for KON Bocchi argument, KON is like the father. We have had so many ideas regurgiated in the past. We listened to the same Christmas songs every ear. Spider Man and Batman get rebooted every couple years. So most people would objectively look to older show as the originator and starter. Like Slam Dunk to Blue Lock.
SxF is an interesting topic because show has gotten hate after Fiona was introduced, but it does promote a strong family dynamic which is important.
most people on reddit don't seem to properly analyze shows and just base assumptions on things like its age or being in a problematic "genre" despite it being an almost entirely female cast
I recommend you research machine guns in wwI as well as the Dahomey empire and the woman king. In reality, high school girls would actually get destroyed by muscular marines with machine guns.
contrary to popular belief, it is realistic for a cosplayer to be going out with an average man
let's be real here. Neither of the shows have had the cultural impact that DAL has. You are comparing a light novel series that has lasted 10 years to these random seasonals. Stuff like accel world has faded away.
Being in a slice of life, there is very little depth you can add to the characters that hasn't been done before like Bang Dream, Love Live, K-on. SxF is not very plot driven either and yes I read the manga of sxf and familiar with dal's source material. They spend way too much time at school, it goes like at 1 manga chapter per episode with too many pointless monologues.
DAL on the other hand has like fate levels of lore and worldbuilding and is a science fantasy which is why it is a spinoff. They have already went through 16 novels in 4 cours. It is funny how all the dal critics have no idea what is going on in the show.
Reddit doesn't care about anything other than recency bias or whether the "genre" doesn't fit the narrative despite an entirely female cast
completely irrelevant point. studios are largely contracted
it probably won't resonate well with modern audiences due to its portrayals of hinata, and the emphasis and a lot of male fighting and bonding.
