    VCV can be recorded in Romaji. However, the aliases must be in Kana. Kana-encoded VCV is bad in my opinion (I can't figure out forcing SJIS on my working laptop)

    I wanna say it's because it's not "meta" and if it's not "Meta" it must then be a terrible bank and not usable...When in actuality it probably is a really good voicebank and is usable. (simplest explanation I can think of)

    I think it might be because it's just always been hiragana from the beginning afaik. Because of that, most VCV USTs are hiragana, most VBs are hiragana, and plugins like the Lyric Diphonizer are made for it (it doesn't work with romaji). Maybe that was because VCV hiragana was easier for Japanese users? I don't know why it is the way it is.

    If it was in romaji from the start, the issue would probably be reversed. I'm not sure if people are explicitly against romaji. It's more like it's not common enough to be "worth it," if that makes sense. That's only from what I've seen, though; maybe people are genuinely against it, but I have no idea. Sorry for the double comment, it wouldn't fit in one.

    I think roma encoded VCVs are frowned upon because as Haichou said they are generally too much of an hassle. Romaji VCV usts are just not common enough, and converting from hiragana is just ehhh (autoVCV and the plugin don't work with romaji, so you'd have to turn the hiragana ust to CV, convert it to romaji and then VCV-ize the ust by hand...)
