I see #Anitwt is having a meltdown today over MHA production. I'll keep it simple:

Animators are not at fault for how a story is adapted. Period.

The anime industry is barely holding together. If all you care about is what the latest episode is like, then you live in a bubble
I'm not sure what it's going to take. People who should know better aren't understanding just how bad the state of the industry is in.

I've been speaking as loud as I can for YEARS about how industry workers are DYING FROM OVERWORK and the labor shortage accelerating problems
There are more anime in production than the existing labor force in the anime industry can handle. As production jobs get outsourced from much needed overhaul with how things operate on a day to day and the long term, that's less work for Japanese animators to earn BY THE FRAME
If you have no clue what I'm talking about, im sorry. I can't hold your hand and dedicate time to educate you. I will, however, provide you a credible source that you can look to and support: @animatorsupport youtube.com/channel/UCsLPW…

If you spend your whole life reacting to things outside of your control and reach, then what time is left for directly impacting people's lives? What time is left to inspire, to persuade, to uplift one another, to love one another unconditionally without prejudice?
A reason why I refuse to allow mainstream politics inside of Rei Casa (my discord server) and refuse to engage in mainstays politics myself in any capacity, is purely because of the realization that my time can be better spent helping those close to me than reacting to spectacle
I think discussions rn about AOC bring such things to mind.

I realize that people can't understand the differences in class structure and "eat the rich" means anything above $100k/mo in income regardless of location or occupation

Y’all probably either are confused of drama of the day in #ENVtuber land. So here’s a summary (not including the dozens of lukewarm takes that form a consensus of enjoying the outreach that clips from various fan channels give to any #Vtuber).

I’ve got unique thoughts on this🧵
From a professional standpoint as someone who manages, consults and cares deeply for VTubers, Cimrai just about covered a lot of what I could’ve and probably would’ve said myself

This professional perspective is missing with a lot of indie talent
I come from a similar background as a content creator doing this for 7 years, but also had my start in a similar aspect as clippers like @UsVtuber. My best friend @RinaHoshinari did too with his FB page geoing hella viral for posting a McD’s anime ad and getting it shared by McDs

#ADayOffTwitch is about Hate Raids. I want you to think about this before you stream. People are allowing exceptions for contract streamers who depend on streaming for income. That's fine.

What I care about with whoever hops on today and crosses the picket line are intentions
#twitchblackout is a protest and boycott about Twitch's incompetence and negligence to marginalized creators who wish to escape from the world just like everyone else. However, as we know by now, we don't get that kind of luxury. Fandom and hobbies are a battleground

Yes, a battleground.

The war? None other than the notorious "Culture War". Hate Raids are a continuation and an attempt to reignite this bullshit yet again.

I ask that everyone take a breather and read what is being said. The main thing is an issue--an oversight I also apologize for.

BPD does not make someone a "bad person" or inherently abusive.

If you were involved or know of this case, please hear me out🧵
It was crucial to point out Seluna's SPECIFIC, UNTREATED SYMPTOMS that she KNEW about and CHOSE do to NOTHING about DESPITE having access and ample time and chances to work on it.

We are talking about a woman who WEAPONIZED her hospital stay. That's SPECIFIC to HER, not all BPD
The wording in the mental health section was advised and written by Bridgey. I oversaw it and edited it.

The current wording will not be changed to avoid suspicion of tampering the document.

This was an oversight. Both Bridgey and I take full responsibility for it and apologize

If you’ve been hate raided, would you mind showing me in your Twitch Dashboard: “EXTERNAL SOURCES” under the stream summary of the stream you got raided in, if I can collect enough data, I might be able to uncover something with light investigation the source(s) of hate raids
Please like, retweet, and even tag or dm someone who has been hate raided. I would like to help in what ways I can
I wanna create a heatmap to determine the worst offenders of hate raids. If it’s not 4chan, then we deduce from there other likely sources like lolcow, Kiwi Farms, certain FB groups and discord servers that have this kind of reputation, and more. We need data

2000 followers...wow. what did I do to deserve so many friends, colleagues, clients, and dearest fans??

Y'all tell me sometimes how I inspire you. I called myself Reikan back in highschool because I wanted to be someone who can inspire others.

Thank you for sticking around 💜 Reikan. 2000 followers
I started making content in 2014. I was on and off even back then because of life and struggling with balancing my education, work, and my social life.

In 2018, when I came out as trans, a shit ton of my followers out of 26k came after me and started being hyper critical of me
That hostile environment broke me and I never looked back since. I started diving deeper into Twitter after neglecting it for so long and dove into the Vic Mignogna case where I met so many amazing people with such tenacity and strength despite the absolute hostile environment
