USA Today has a lot of stories about Mikey and its success but it’s one of the most interesting for me because Mikey was an extremely promising show.
Mikey initially launched in Japan in 2015, and it didn’t disappoint.
The premise was that you could watch a series and learn about its creators and their life.
Mikeys creators, Kazutoshi Nakamura and Hirofumi Nakamura, worked in various different fields, and they were always well-versed in the Japanese media.
But the real attraction of Mikey’s early days was its promise to be a real drama.
Mikey initially premiered in Japan as an online-only service for Japanese users to watch the first season.
That first season had a good balance between the comedy and drama elements, and the show also did well in its first season with over 20 million viewers watching the first episode.
But that first season was short-lived and Mikey eventually stopped doing streaming.
Mikeytos popularity quickly declined in the U.S., which was a huge disappointment for the company.
Mikeyu had a loyal following among fans who were eager to watch an episode or two before the show would be pulled.
The network then took a gamble with a second season.
It offered a free season to those who subscribed to the service in order to keep them entertained.
Unfortunately, the first two seasons of Mikeyu were pretty forgettable.
There was a sense of excitement about the show, but the actual show was pretty dull.
Mikeyds first season aired on July 4, 2017, which was an awfully long time ago for a Japanese streaming service.
Mikey’s second season began airing in the spring of 2018 and it had a similar story to the first one.
Mikeyo fans were excited about the return of the original series.
That second season was more of the same.
The first season also failed to live-up to expectations.
Mikeies success was only limited by the quality of the cast, as the series was riddled with cast turnover and an abundance of mistakes and missteps.
The series ended its first run in February 2019, and only had an 18-episode run.
The show’s popularity fell off a cliff after that, and in April 2020 the company was sold to NTT DoCoMo.
Mikeygos fate was sealed in the summer of 2020 when Mikey officially stopped streaming.
Why did Mikeyo fail to thrive?
It’s a tough question to answer.
I think the first three seasons were a big reason why Mikeys failure.
I have to go with the show’s first season because it was an absolute train wreck of a first season, but I think there were more problems with the second season than with the first.
For one, Mikey fans were used to watching Mikey on a monthly basis.
When the second and third seasons ended, Mikeys fans were left with nothing to watch.
In the summer months, they would spend their time watching other shows like the new “Manga” series, or the new anime series “D-Frag” that had a large following.
It was not until the summer holidays that the show really picked up steam.
But this time around, fans were not being treated like regular Japanese viewers.
I also have to mention that the second half of the season was a total failure.
Mikeyon’s second half had some great episodes, but they weren’t enough to keep viewers engaged.
Mikeya’s second and fourth seasons were all good but there wasn’t enough excitement and energy from the show to keep the fans coming back.
This is also true for its sequel, Mikeyu2.
Mikeyan 2 had better first halves, but it still failed to capture the fans’ interest.
Mikeiy 2 was a different story, but this was a much better series.
The second half was much better.
The third half was just average, with some of the best jokes in the show.
The fourth half was terrible, but there was some great moments.
The biggest problem I have with Mikey is that it was a good show, so it failed to be good for the fans.
The next two seasons were just as terrible.
They were all terrible, which is probably why the first and second seasons of the show didn’t get the fans excited.
But Mikey 2 still had a strong following, and its second season managed to live in the spotlight with the addition of the third season.
Unfortunately for the second series, the third and fourth half didn’t live up too well to the previous seasons.
This meant that the first series couldn’t maintain its momentum and the second one was just too long.
Mikeyy had a great second half, but its third season just wasn’t that great.
Mike yyo 2 failed to get the attention it deserved, and that’s the biggest reason why it failed.
So what should I do now?
I am not saying Mikey2 is a bad show, because it certainly was
