Y'know I have absolutely no idea about that but whatever you just wrote down sounds smart when I read it AND your picture is beautiful so I feel the need to reply.
The show definitely has a bit of an obstacle to jump across before you can really get into it.
But honestly I wouldn't want it any other way. With those initial first awkward appearances, the show sneaks up on whoever stuck with it and watched through with low expectations in mind.
I guess I can see an argument for that being a bad idea considering it's just generally harder for people to get into the show as a result.
But word will eventually spread, the fanart will gather eyes and the oh so glorious Amidst Amigo's will attract many.
The show will get it's full time in the spotlight after S3 starts I feel.
What finally got you into the show?
