Basically to my understanding, moves have been made to insert ideology into the anime subcommunity, in a similar vein to how GG went down.

There were several articles written about the anime fandom not being "inclusive" because of the reaction to a 3DPD celebrity posting a DarliFra image online, and apparently CR has been teaming up with an ideological critic similar to Anita Sarkeesian (but with anime).

The results can be seen with image above, where CR removed a touching feature in a Danmachi game they localized (the first project of CR Games for mobile), despite it being advertised with the feature. Their response was to lecture down about how it was "inappropriate for English audiences" for some reason, and when the very real threat of an FCC audit for false advertising came about, they deleted the evidence.

Well, at least it's just over some crappy phone game. If it were anything worth playing, there would be a fan release made if people are that upset.

In all, it seems as if there is a double push going on here:

Push A: Make anime mainstream. Turn it into a commodity for mass market consumption in the West. We see this mentality with CR posting shitty ads where some young college kids are in a night club watching One Piece, as well as projects like "Flying Colors Foundation" and the AnimePoser wanting to have western audiences influence anime creators.

Push B: Seeing as how they seek to influence and sanitize "geek media", ideologues of a certain stripe are beginning to insert themselves into creating hyper-critical "lense" viewing and attempt to censor or infect fans with ideological stances on the medium.

Culminate this with the fact that we see more hit pieces against the push against localization practices that sanitize and shoehorn and you get a situation that is sneaking up on the otaku subculture: There is an intent to make anime mainstream, and in the process, bring back near-4Kids style flopping abominations in order to grab a quick buck for these licensing and streaming platforms.

Couple this with the anti-piracy pushes getting more and more dire, the coming months and years could be very hard on us, especially if they end up influencing creators in Japan.

This is just how it starts anon.

Still, for anime to fit a the scope of these types of people, they would have to heavily censor every anime out there, practically changing the story at times. This would leave actual anime fans looking elsewhere for the untouched media. See, even if CR does start heavily editing and changing storylines for all of their new shows from now on, the originals will still exist. The only time when this will be a real issue is when it starts happening in Japan with the people actually making these anime. In the meantime, it doesn't matter what CR does, just don't give them money for their crap. Nobody should have been in the first place.

I've been calling CR shit for years and refusing to do business with them, but did anyone listen? nooooooo.

CR makes all its income from normals, though. They don't even pick up all the airing shows.
