A NEET who’s also an ex-hikikomori, the archetypal otaku loser, manages to land a highly important job as an ambassador of otaku culture to a magical fantasy land. Outbreak Company is basically a bunch of thinly-disguised wish fulfillment, targeted towards otaku without any skills that would land them a job in the real world, and wish they could somehow get paid for the ungodly amount of time they spend in their basement reading manga and wanking off to hentai. The Japanese government, who hires Shinichi here, isn’t even interested in someone with any actual diplomacy skills—just any generic guy who can answer all 200 questions of an online quiz he stumbled upon. (Doubtless he found out about the job through one of those crudely designed “Want to make money watching anime?!” advertisements that pop up on anime streaming sites.) The director of foreign affairs guy even said that Shinichi being an ex-hikikomori is a plus!
And what’s one of the perks about this job as an ambassador? Why, a cute half-elf maid to assist him of course! Oh, and she’s very shy and insecure about her half-elf identity, and doesn’t quite understand the human concept of embarrassment towards seeing someone naked? So moe. And you gotta love how the scene where she’s undressing Shinichi almost looks like she’s about to give him a blowjob.
Kind of annoying how they have all that suspense leading up to the reveal of the queen being a loli girl when they practically spoiled it in the OP. That’s generally why it’s a good idea to wait until the second episode before you show off the OP. It made up for that though when Shinichi bursts up and loudly proclaims his excitement at the prospect of a loli queen, which was pretty hilarious. I Yeah, that’s kind of why you would want to hire someone with actual diplomacy skills rather than an ex-hikikomori; I almost don’t even care that he clearly got a good look of the queen before he had to bow. Also, I bet the fact that she’s sixteen means she’s going to be apart of the harem.
Okay, in spite of everything though this isn’t exactly a bad anime per se; the story itself is terrible, but its at least got some decent production values and well-timed comedy, so it makes for some nice, mindless fluff entertainment.
