No one claims CR could ever replace Japanese revenue. It's not even remotely possible. Especially considering R1 DVDs--at the height of the bubble--didn't even break 50% for western friendly companies like Gonzo.
Clannad is Life, Da Capo is Pure Love, Higurashi is Ethics, & Tori no Uta is the National Anthem.
The ones who will have the last laugh are the earnest and the honest.
