The news that IdolMaster 2 has dumped Ritsuko, Iori, Azusa and Ami as playable characters whilst adding a trio of sexy male idols has provoked a storm amongst the franchise’s notoriously creepy fans, with every tactic from an Internet hate campaign to a formal petition coming into play.

Some particularly desperate (or possibly desperately optimistic) fans have started a formal petition entreating the developers to both restore the restructurated quartet and re-add multiplayer:

Another creepy otaku took a rather more direct approach to venting his frustrations – fortunately NEET-grade Japanese housing is only made of cardboard and paper, so he is unlikely to have injured himself:
