What is actually baffling with this whole affair is that all responsible parties just added insult to the injury: it isn't really surprising to have dirty deals, unpleasants incidents behind the scenes, but making it publicly and even pushing it is just disgusting.
Frankly, we still have no idea who is the "culprit", but some people really digged their grave big time, particularly Terashima who just couldn't stop making fun of Ichiki the whole frigging time, even if the latter managed the break the ice by pulling a calm "I will never forgive you" at the end of the event. If that wasn't enough, his comments during the kokoro connect radio segment just confirms the impression he -really- enjoyed that.

Likewise, that member of Eufonius made that comment completely out of the line: I mean, he isn't even involved in the seiyuu industry, is he? That was more than just beating the dead horse, that is flat out malicious.

The seiyuu industry is already too much of a "survival to the fittest", so having such kind of public incident is really beyond bad taste. That's even more disturbing when you consider the fact that Japanese arguably don't like public humiliation (save if the broadcasted program has the said purpose: usual silly mini games etc).

Could someone explain to me why Kitamura Eri is being burned for a show she's not even in?

Yeah and I heard some bunch of nuts trying to firehose her Twitter account with spam.

Amazing, and I thought this only happens in mainstream entertainment (we call this as "crab mentality", that is, a loser maliciously dragging down a successful person).

From what was described, it's a complete shitstorm, and unless a public apology is issued (and some Japanese are supposed to do this if they screw up), the backlash will damage the reputations of everyone else involved.

BTW, I recognize Ichiki -- he's Yuuki Fukuzawa.

Cmiiw, but I heard it's because KitaEri is alleged as Yamanaka's ehm...you know...

Dunno if that's true.

And so it begins, the greatest shitstorm of our time.

It's often things like this that bring out the true colors of our idols... and this also teaches the parties involved about dealing with people who act like this behind the camera.

They, especially KitaEri, are lucky. If the Hell Correspondence really existed, one of them would be sent straight to Hell.

Because she's rumoured to be producer Yamanaka's favourite (or in 2ch's own words: his slut). She apparently gets frequently casted in his shows and he retweets her on twitter and etc. That's roughly the gist of what I managed to find.

So, what? They're just carpet bombing everyone in sight? If they're doing this to her, I cannot imagine what's going on with the regular VA cast that are actually on the show.

This is a.... special case, cause the ones attacking her are really just /a/nons being dicks (pun intended). She may be listed as a target by 2ch but the whole dick incident is purely on this side of the internet (4chan).

Well, you know how it is. Nothing new with internet anons doing things like this. The sad thing is that we can't really do anything about it until the flames died out by itself, at which point the casualties would well fall beyond the original intended targets.

So then what's gonna happen to the franchise now? I really hope they take care of this incident in a satisfying way...

Then I stand by what I've said-most of these guys don't really give a damn about the real victim.

I wasn't there when it happened, but to my understanding..

The Kitamura Eri thing is actually actually someone using the whole situation and using it to grief Kitamura Eri

and since some people who are experiencing mob mentality don't bother to verify information, they follow along

why Kitamura Eri? someone who is unrelated to Kokoro Connect scandal you say?

because someone doesn't like Kitamura Eri very much, and it has only gotten worse after Madoka aired. Don't bother trying to explain internet hate.

A blog translated the content from this Youtube video:



Quote:
Takuma Terashima said that “It was fun seeing a human being break like that”, while Hisako Kanemoto laughed at Ichiki san for not having a role in the anime, and about how he still accepted the promotional manager post in the end, as he doesn’t have a choice. She mocked him, saying something like “Didn’t you want to do this though?(the role) You seemed so enthusiastic about it!”
Looks like the main culprits are the two seiyuu aforementioned.

EDIT: Wow, I left out the T in Takuma's name while bold-tagging it, and it read as "akuma" for a split second. o.o

I'm waiting for the typical sensationalist internet tabloid rags (i.e. Sankaku) to pick it up and blow it all out of proportion.

You don't even need Sankaku to blow it out of proportion. What I have seen on 4chan is more than enough. Sankaku will look like slowpoke and Arte TV (the typical cultural channel) in comparison.

^ I'm actually surprised that ANN hasn't picked it up yet.
... Or I haven't found it.

In any case, Kanemoto Hisako probably just buried her career.

^ Yeah, and to think she just started compared to the others...

And here we go with KitaEri's response on Twitter:

Quote:


"This is a big shock, it's very intense, I'll try to hang on with my work..."
Also, 4chan /a/'s response:

Quote:

Oh hell no. Leave KitaEri out of this

F#ck any f##### who spams KitaEri. I'm mad.

Too late. I already told these guys but they wouldn't listen.

There was a bullying incident with some VAs that mocked and humiliated another small time VA infront of a live audience, out of /a/'s stupidity they decided to attack Kitamura Eri via twitter and not the main culprits/the main bullies.

/a/'s logic was that KitaEri was liked by the bullies, so if we attack KitaEri this will hurt the bullies - stupid when you consider the bullies have twitter accounts themselves.

Exactly...that's the real victim here



More importantly......The idea of a Kokoro Connect van going around cities clocking hundreds of Km in mileage is O__o

http://anago.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/moeplus/1346416369/

2ch thread for anyone interested

Quote:
This is getting a lot more out of hand seeing how /a/ was tweeting pictures of their dicks to Eri Kitamura, to say nothing about 2ch themselves marking her as a potential firing target for supposedly being producer Takahiro Yamanaka's slut. Riya of Eufonius is also listed despite only the other half of the group, Hajime Kikuchi, being a total asshole.

Well, it's certainly going to be interesting what all this leads to by the end of the day...
The people on those "kuso anime" threads are generally just concentrated hot air...their BS doesn't easily affect saner parts of the fandom
