I started watching the new Nekopara anime when I realized that they had replaced all of the voice actresses. They were still in the crowdfunded OVA, but now they had been tossed aside because eroge actresses aren't good enough for big boy TV anime for big boy viewers. It's hugely disrespectful and I stopped watching immediately.>>492
There are very few guaranteed sales in the anime market, and something that looks solid on paper can easily fail while something else may become an unexpected success.>>494
The Western fans are acting that way precisely because they aren't Japanese (or sufficiently familiar with anime). Anime is made by Japanese people according to Japanese sensibilities, which are very different from Western ones.
