Yeah, exactly this.Robo4900 wrote:If you want to get into the best way of responding to this, and talking about stuff like the "author vs the art" idea, then I'd at this point like to say -- probably my preferred solution would be if Funimation sever ties with him, bring in a new casting for Broly as soon as possible, and have the new guy redub Mignogna's lines for the DVD/BD release of the movie.
They're going to need a new guy for any future videogame appearances etc. anyway, and if the guys at Toei decide to bring him back in Super again, and they have time to do that before the April release of the DVD/BD, so... It could be done.
That's just my two cents on that particular part of this.
He did an outstanding job in the Broly movie, imo. But being talented or skilled in an art doesn't magically make you free of all sin lmao. We can enjoy his voice, but that doesn't make it ok for Funimation to continue giving him work now this is so publicly exposed. And conventions should absolutely stop even considering having him as a guest.
Time to say goooodbye and appreciate his past work out of context.
At this point, it doesn't even matter if hes innocent - it's pretty obvious he's not entirely innocent, but even regardless, it's not good for business to keep him around.
