Hurray, Fukuda! He's always my favorite character when he's being awesome like this.

Oh god, I love Fukuda so much now. He's the ULTIMATE problem solver.smile Also happy to see that poor Kitami isn't treated as a villain. You really have to feel sorry for her.

Also, I started imagining Shishigawa (Fat Otaku guy who started the whole mess) with a Douchy Mc Nitpick voice. Although, I feel really sick knowing that this really is how Voice Actor relationships are treated in Japan.

Fukuda comes to save the save the day again! You go Giri!!

You mean man. XDDDD

But I believe that Fukuda's action is a lot better; a well-known mangaka that voices his opinion on this matter and does it so directly and well expressed that it'll give him more credence doing it on the radio rather than post it on the internet, since the otakus on the networks will likely be taken as nothing more than some kind of "troll post" or someone trying to pass for Fukuda and thus they'll think of him as some kind of annonymous loser.

I started smirking the second Fukuda caught wind of things, 'cause I knew he'd do something like this.

[up][up] I didn't say "Girl", I said "Giri" XD, as in his Giri Road Racer manga (that I really want to read irl, like the vast majority of things in this manga)

I feel like this might make things worse.

[up] Which means Fukuda will just have to something even crazier. cool
His work is never done.
Annnd it's out.

Everybody saw it coming. So... now what?

The whole Fukuda afar was handled better than I expected. It didn't solve anything and only put more oil in the fire and he even felt regret latter when realized the consequences. All without diminishing the awesomeness of him. Quite cool.

Still, props to Azuki's declaration (random space filler).

[up]Well, this is hardly the kind of manga that would force someone to deny their love. That would go completely against the Shonen Jump code.

I will admit to being surprised. I thought we'd see the safe route from Oh&O, but Fukada went shinigurai mode, and forgot it wasn't his life on the line.
Sometimes the question is not, "Am I being misanthropic?" but rather, "Am I being misanthropic enough?"

Well. That was rather epic. My respect for Bakuman has increased.

So what's the deal with the whole "you can't be a voice actress if you have a boyfriend" thing? My impression was that, when two celebrities start dating each other, their popularity tends to increase, not decrease.

[up]I belive it's a societal thing in Japan involving die hard Otakus. I have heard that stuff like this has actually happened in real life. In Western Countries, Voice Actor relationships are treated with alot more respect.
2368 Heatth26th Feb 2012 02:57:36 AM from Brasil , Relationship Status: In Spades with myself
(Female)Voice actors are not really celebrities. They are idols. They are the the materialization of the ideal girl every otaku wants. By having a boyfriend, they break such idea, and ruin their popularity. Japan is weird.
Not on my watch
To put it simply, western fans are cynical and like publicity no metter if good or bad (bad may often be even better )

Japanese fans in other hand are desilusional and want their idol be their own property.

Of course it can't be applied for everyone (probably not even bigger part)

[up]That is shorter and better explanation

Three Steps
I think it's a bit more complicated than that. Plenty of popular female voice actors are married, after all. Sometimes to other actors. I think it has more to do with her age and the kinds of characters she plays. I can't quite articulate this, but I think there's a feeling that this retroactively makes all the virginal and pure characters she's played become "lies". As if there was something "honest" about acting in the first place. The fans feel like they've been lied to, in terms of a voice not being what they thought it was.

I don't really agree with this, but that's the impression I get.
Not on my watch
So far we didn't get any reaction from Nizuma, though he isn't realy interested in anything except manga, so I don't know what should I want him to do anyway.

[up][up][up]Well said.

It is not like all voice actress are intended to be pure virginal maiden. But Miho herself is. This is how she reached her fame. It is part of her public character, whether she wanted it or not.

If you want a good comparison, try our Disney Stars who've fallen off the wagon, only to a worse extreme.

A good comparison or a bad one?
