I very much dislike how Japan handles "scandals". If just one person appears to step out of line, the whole production is somehow held accountable. Even when it's just a family member of someone involved and not the person themselves, it's considered a big deal. It's stupid and hurts everyone, not just the target.

I remember when a Japanese voice actress was arrested for drugs. She was dropped immediately by her agency and from all projects within hours of the arrest and every show she appeared in was taken down. I think most streaming services still have it down. Keep in mind that the charges were dropped, though the Police statement was basically that she was guilty but they were going to have pity on her. I guess that's the same as a conviction.

We are not much better; look at Lori Loughlin. Her daughters are being crucifeid right now.

The pity didn't amount to much, did it?

Did the game even reach the market? The original version might become a very valuable item soon.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

This really highlights one of the ridiculous aspects of some Asian cultures. Their relentless emphasis on the many, rather than the individual, means everybody that has anything to do with anybody that steps out of line is held accountable.

And then there's the fact that using cocaine really isn't immoral, or wrong in any way other than legally.
