Well Funimation decided to hit another low recently. No, not their recent logo change, which looks even more ominous and self-righteous than the last one. But by promoting episode 8 of Boku dake ga Inai Machi/Erased being available to watch, they use Kayo’s own struggles in her childhood and compare them to the one thing none of us expected: poor college students.
It left a bitter taste in so many of their subscribers, that they’re wondering if Funimation really does have their best interests in their subscribers. The tweet has since been removed from their account…
…so here it is:
Make if it what you will but it does indeed show us that they their social media writers need to put their thinking caps on before they tackle a controversial show like Bokumachi. Of course I cannot name names, as I have no idea who among their team wrote it.
I think it’s disgusting of them to compare one college struggle with finding money to eat with something very serious and life-scarring. At the time of writing, Funimation have not issued an apology, but I for one demand one.
