Someone in the Persona 4 tag…
Is demanding a boycott of Atlus. Explaining this under a read more:
Boycotting has historically worked, yes, but under different circumstances. It’s very important to consider, as you noted, that Atlus Japan creates the games and that boycotting in another reason is not necessarily as effective.
Also can’t boycotting, if it has effects, kind of adversely affect irrelevant workers of the company? Like, the graphics guy doesn’t exactly have that much influence over the concept of a character. They’re given something to work with. But because the product loses its profit, he loses his profit too.
Plus, I doubt enough people will boycott under a unified cause that it can be identified by corporate as a boycott.
SO yeah. Write a letter. It may not be effective, but it’ll be more effective than boycotting. Or hell, even write a letter to Atlus USA. Not as direct as writing to Atlus Japan, but they still may be able to do something about it too, even if it’s not completely under their control.
