They're boring and annoying.

Childhood Friends represent the mundane, and an extremely recurring theme is the MC's mundane life ending and an exciting fantastical life beginning. A particularly extreme example would be Oreimo, where the childhood friend is dubbed the "normal queen", representing not only the mundane life, mundane love interest, but also societal norms as well. (In her opposition toward incest.)

Simply put, Osananajimi are boring.

Most stories begin when something new happens in the protagonist's life. As such, the odds of the lead female being someone they've never met before are much higher. And the odds of anyone other than the lead female winning are pretty low.

so the writer can justify never ending the cash cow series

Woah, that's some ugly bitch right there.

Because they already had their chance. They are lazy and take things for granted, hence undeserving of love. I cannot recall one single series where the chidhood friend was the best girl.
>>
It's not just the childhood friend. Short haired, tomboy, and genki are all doomed as well.

Look towards the super effeminate's and tsundere's to win. And Tsundere trumps super effeminate unless the tsundere has short hair.

Because japanese writers are horrible. They make a childhood friend love the MC but he be completely oblivious to her so you might be dumb enough into thinking the MC is desirable.

She has a nice body.
>>
They never make a move because they don't want to ruin their relationship, if they were even capable of making a move they would have done it a long time ago and avoided the friendzone

YuYu Hakusho proves you wrong.

Because childhood friends are filthy normalfags.

Because they are sometimes voiced by KanaHana

All I know is that if she doesn't win, I'm finally going to lose what little faith I have left in Japan's ability to entertain.

The Shorthaired Tomboyish Genki Childhood friend is the ultimate form of suffering.

The irony is that probably you are a fucking leviathan.
