The BD sales actually increased when the plot was kicking in, if I remember correctly. Furthermore it's only on /a/ that you see people really hating the actual plot. Which is dumb, it's part of what makes FliFla FliFla. The themes were present at the beginning, Mimi showed up in the first episode, it culminated into Coconas developing and freeing herself of the clutches of the evil aspect of her mum. It's part of its identity. This never was CGDCT.
