Fans can be some of the most passionate people around, but they can also be some of the most irritating, and the times they get rowdy, ill-tempered, or act like real jerkfaces towards the things they're supposedly fans of, can be the worst. And in one case, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada has had enough.
Blowing his top on Twitter, Harada lashed out at a particular segment of "whiners" and "complainers" that had seemingly nothing better to do than spam his feed with demands to use sixteen-year-old voice-over samples and clips from the original Tekken games in new productions or to hire on original voice actors that can't or won't reprise their roles.
Taking full advantage of Twitter's verbosity when employed using ideographic languages (such as Japanese and Chinese), Harada told irate fans that they "need practice at taking a step back and analysing things objectively," and also "at being an adult." He even called into question their attention and vows to "buy two copies" should he comply with their calls to bring certain characters back for Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Ending in despondence, he even parted with "Thanks for understanding or not understanding. Whatever."
Woah, that guy has had enough. I hope he doesn't take too much offense if I add that I can't even recall any Tekken characters that ever spoke (whooping and grunting and other "fight noises" don't count).
