    @Malek86 Yeah, that amuses me too. I can think of a good few of these "controversy" shows over the last few years... The Ultimate Teacher, Cross Ange, Gate, How Not To Summon a Demon Lord and Goblin Slayer, to name just the ones that spring immediately to mind. In each case, the "controversies" in the Western anime press and social media, usually driven by some transgression against US campus-culture morals, has gone completely unnoticed in Japan. Some of those shows have flopped, others have done well in terms of domestic DVD/BD sales, but Western controversies seem to have made no impact at all.
