I don’t mean to rain on everyone’s parade but I need to get this off my chest and twitter probably won’t be enough to handle this ‘rant’.
As much as I like it, as of today I am boycotting Kokoro Connect until I can get my head around what happened. Hell even the mention of the anime just kills any happiness that I feel.
Additionally, Terashima Takuma, forget the nickname we used to call you by, you have disappointed me greatly. I really don’t want to believe what happened was true but the proof is there. I love you as a voice actor but to publicly humiliate someone, who tries their best but is unsuccessful, is just unacceptable. Even just being part of the group who was involved is bad enough but you go on twitter and thank those who were involved? Well thank god you lost followers and most likely many fans. I would really like to see how your album sales and live events go from now on. Other voice actors are ignoring aren’t they? Sugita was disappointed.
I know you’re in Hyakki from memory and I’m really looking forward to that game. Heck you even voice my favourite in Hyakki. I’m just hoping I won’t hate your characters as a result of this event. Other than that I’m not going to cover any Ittoki songs. I only do that when I respect the singer and composer of the song. It may be unfair to Agematsu but right now UtaPuri is virtually ruined now. It was still okay after Debut even if it wasn’t great but now? No.
To Kokoro Connect and Clannad music fans, I hope this doesn’t ruin things like it has for me.
To all those who are huge Terashima Takuma fans, maybe you can find it in yourselves to forgive him earlier than I can.

I’m sorry this the first post I’ve done in a while.

IKR he just a jerk and I lost all my respect for him. I do love his Clannad’s piece and Kokoro Connect, and his role as Ottoya, but what he did is disgusting. Thanks to that he’ll lose his friends, fans and career, laughing at someone and thanks them because people supports his stupid action is not good at all. I’m so glad Sugita ignoring him, now I’m more in love with him xD
I think Terashima’s getting the brunt of all the hate since he was basically the MC and the voice over in the clip. He looked like he was having a lot more fun in the clip. While Mizushima was quieter and looked sympathetic, but still laughed…I just don’t know what to think now. =/ I don’t see an apology coming any time soon but I do hope his senpai say something to him. For now I’m just going to stash this whole thing in a corner of my mind and hope that time will make me get over this. Either that or I’ll just have to separate the voice from the person to enjoy an role Terashima or Mizushima happen to play from now on…
