Outbreak Company

Outbreak Company, known in Japan as Outbreak Company: Moeru Shinryakusha (アウトブレイク・カンパニー 萌える侵略者, lit. Outbreak Company: The Moe Invader) is a Japanese light novel series written by Ichirō Sakaki, with illustrations by Yūgen. An anime television series adaptation aired between October and December 2013. Shin’ichi Kanō is a young secluded otaku who is offered a job thanks to his vast knowledge of anime, manga and video games. However, just after meeting his new employer, he is kidnapped, awakening in an alternate world with a fantasy setup. Shin’ichi is then informed that he was in fact selected by the Japanese government to help improve his country’s relations with this new world by establishing a company to spread the unique products of the Japanese culture to this new, unexplored market.

Having a light novel author father and an eroge illustrator mother, Kanou Shinichi is a thoroughbred otaku. One day he found himself transported to a fantasy world where elves live and dragons fly. And he is given a task—not to fight monster or embark on a quest, but to enhance cultural exchange by becoming a “moe missionary” in this fantasy world! He meets a palace guard who has a bit of fujoshi taste, a half-elf maid, and the empress who is a little girl. He comes up with the idea of building a school. At first it runs as a comedy but later there are serious matters that Shinichi needs to face: ethnic discrimination, social problems, conflict with neighboring countries, sabotage by opposition elements including Japanese government, etc. Can he overcome the obstacles, successfully bring “moe” culture to the fantasy world?
