Never posted, but that's a shame. I have a lot of fond memories posting on FUNimation's message board between 2009-2013-ish (particularly the original incarnation before it got rebooted around 2011), but it looks like that's gone too. That was a massive community at one point, but still small enough where it felt almost familial.

Crunchyroll will probably get rid of the comment section for each anime episode too, eventually.

It should be noted, when someone posts something like this, it's going to add fuel to the fire. He later blocked so many people Twitter restricted his account because they thought he was a bot.

Iím pretty sure Bayonetta 1-2 were also union. They did get actors like Grey DeLisle and Dave Fennoy after all. FUNimation and New Generation Pictures even had to dub the Bloody Fate anime movie with SAG contracts to get everyone back. Fennoy does an AMA every Wednesday, and he once said he almost never does anime because itís usually non-union (implying he only works union).

Something a friend brought up, residuals may have been the main thing that broke negotiations down. I mean, think about Hollywood accounting (Also recommended: Link 1, Link 2), residuals are something many companies don't want.

Almost certainly. No company wants to be the one that sets the precedent for it, since it'd set the baseline going forward for other VAs to request the same.

It sounds like she's over the whole thing already:

"I would like to put this whole bloody franchise behind me quite frankly get on with my life in the theatre.”

48 hours after going on about how much the character and role mean to her.

1) don't believe everything you hear.
2) there are two sides to every story; the truth is often somewhere in-between.
3) no one needs attempted dialogue on Twitter. Those aren't people; they are angry little eggs. Many of which are disingenuous bad actors, trolls, contrarians, clowns, or edgelords. It's not healthy to engage with it nor become invested in it.

That was precisely my first thought too.

Yeah, I'd want to put it all behind me too if I got caught with my pants down like that, while accidentally starting a harassment campaign.

Insane. Way for her to show she doesn't understand the internet. People these days get a thrill out of vilifying the "big bad company".

$15,000 to record the lines for Bayonetta 3?!

Well shoot, that puts the ole union in a pickle. It also has me expecting a return to sub-only games.

Just like the last time the VAs had a big blow up over video game payouts, I'm wondering what gaming would be like if the artists, animators, and programmers all wanted $3,000 per session.

I wonder if Crunchyroll will ever release the Date A Live movie (and perhaps the Date A Bullet special) on bluray now that they own the Funimation library...

Possibly. I mean it took them forever to release the 2nd Heavenís Lost Property movie but still eventually did it.
