I’m guessing people already know what happened but the tl;dr version is:
Terashima Takuma, Hisako Kanemoto, Yamanaka, and eufonius tricked, bullied and publicly humiliated a B-grade seiyuu, Mitsuhiro Ichiki. Now 2ch is furious and is now boycotting Kokoro Connect to the point that Kokoro Connect’s pre-order number went from 5k+ to less than 1k.
Here are what they did and who are involved:
Terashima Takuma - One of the male hosts at the live event, who mocked Ichiki and said he enjoyed watching a person crumble in front of his eyes.
Kanemoto Hisako - Not at the stage event where Ichiki got humiliated, but in a later video inside a car, she electrocutes him as part of some punishment game and openly mocks him about not getting the voice acting role to his face and laughs about it.
Yamanaka Takahiro - A producer from King Records who seemingly orchestrated the prank and also pranked both Ichiki AND KitaEri(she was also a victim you idiots) at an event 2 years earlier where he showed a crowd the audition tapes without the VAs consent.
Hajime Kikuchi - A eufonius member who insulted a singer/VA Haruko Momoi for nothing that lead to the uncovering of this incident.
That’s not all, here are the OTHER people that are involved.
Oogame Asuka - she was at the event and seemingly knew what was going on and laughed at Ichiki.
Tomokazu Sugita - Apparently a friend of Ichiki, who, while Ichiki was a guest at Sugita’s radio show, talked about the incident and was very pissed when Ichiki said that it wasn’t staged nor faked. (He is the bro-est VA!)
Haruko Momoi - She tweeted that she was happy that people are singing her songs at karaoke and it was a dream of hers, in which, Kikuchi responded that it was lame. Fans got mad, search eufofags’s old tweets, it’s filled with shit just like that. They find a tweet that says “There’s so many people who work so hard with low pay just because they are happy they are in the industry. They are the easiest ones to use, and they have no future. He doesn’t even seem to realize it, so it’s even easier. But we will never hire him.” They wondered what the hell this tweet is about, and they discover this whole fiasco about Ichiki.
Eri Kitamura - Aya Hirano 2.0. She’s a friend of Ichiki. She’s not involve in this at all except for the rumours that she and Yamanaka were dating and butthurt seiyuufags got angry at this rumour and now she got caught in the whole crossfire. (It’s not like she’s totally uninvolve, she was with Ichiki when Yamanaka humiliated them for Ochinko two years ago.) What’s worse is that she’s being slandered as people are actually sending her dick pics via twitter. Yes, it isn’t a troll and I will warn you, don’t search Eri Kitamura in twitter or you’ll see something disgusting. Another rumour has it that Ichiki was getting too close to Kitamura, and that’s why this whole fiasco happened.
Yamakan - lol, someone unrelated but decided to speak up. (If you don’t know who he is, your power level is too low) Also: He and Yamanaka are different people.
Here’s a brief timeline of Ichiki’s life as written by a person on /a/
>kid is born in Japan
>is son of a loving mother and a sick, but caring father
>he has a dream
>he tries to pursue it
