Understandable, though she did a good job with FunaQ.

Here's hoping the new VA can pull it off just as well, especially considering that she will have the extra restriction of having to make it at least somewhat similar to Manami's version in order to count as doing so.

Luckily I didn't even remember her character, so I couldn't care less. It would've been a really shame if one of the main girls would've ben exchanged instead.

OK, I checked, it's Kuroyukihime's VA... I hope she does good job this time, FunaQ is very nice character.

She diden't have that many lines in the first place, so its not that big of a deal.
