Just... WHAT?! Well, it can be a good potential role for the Takahashi-san, but for the god sake to replace the main character role just like that... is there any good care about the health for the voice actors in Japan in the first place?

No matter how well you take care of your body, there are some illnesses that just find a way to make your life miserable. Don't know if they specified her medical problem, but knowing how things usually go in Japan, it could as well be the worst scenario. Hopefully not, way too many people die from some kind of cancer there.

The thing that Taneda-san still working on her radio show, and she herself said before in the one of the podcasts that this medical problem is nothing really serious. Even if she still in need for the medical treatment, that completely big change in the cast is just the big turn-off and can be really disrespectful for the voice actor which bringed the character (and Matthew isn't the side character, but the one of the main protagonists) at least for the year - except there is really serious thing about that.

TLS recording finished weeks ago. Radio is also typically much less work than this kind of game, which can easily be grueling compared to anime.

Rerecording all previous dialogue is a bit extreme but to an extent understandable given the nature of the work.

They needed to record new lines for mashu as new content is going to be announced on the first of October, considering she is Trying to get treatment they aren't going to wait for who knows how long until she recovers. she is trying to get better, they don't have any other choice but to get a new voice actor. Putting the blame on them and stating it's disrespectful is pointless and illogical as they did nothing wrong.

Reusing voice samples and do the cuts isn't the option anymore? Is there really need to do the completely full change of voice actor for just mobile game, and just for couple of months (if there is nothing serious)?

The thing is they add new lines for mashu depending on the content being released, as well as having her do new lines for a tv cm if a big event, chapter or collaboration is released. Which is why they changed voice actors.

That radio show was recorded some time ago.

And you don't go to hiatus for a short time, I believe she has some serious illness if she tok that decision.

Mashu will always be Taneda to me, but at least they should've picked a non-meme VA to replace her.

This kinda worry me, as Risa also voiced characters for Kancolle. Hope they dont replace her too.

There is no real need to do that (and more importantly to that EXTREME level), because Taneda-san doesn't need to do much work in KC for now - except the one-liners for the holiday events (and I don't think that they're in hurry with her characters who isn't K2, especially Samidare and Suzukaze with their artist out). As for anime - the movie is completely done the work with the voice acting before she's gone to medical treatment.

Good luck with her getting better and good luck with Takahashi replacing her.
