/a/ was fail when /fig/ faggots started to complain. Up until recently, I never even saw people wanting a visual novel board and can't imagine why they would - the number of visual novels /a/ knows about can be counted on one hand. The number of Touhou doujins and fanart exceeds nine thousand, where the hell are they going to go now? What about doujins for visual novels that have yet to become games? Voice actors are also relevant, they're the lifeblood of anime. Hell, so are the animators and directors.
The only shit that should ever have been exiled from this board was /fig/. moot should have banned all of those faggots for being so goddamn annoying.
