I wasn’t ready to do anything like this so soon, but I have a bit of a crisis here at home with me being abused and assaulted.

So, I’ll be scheduling and resuming consultations for everyone. If you need me to be your manager, DM me and we can work out something reasonable 💜🖤 Back to school sale. Vtuber branding and marketing. 50% off
If this is your first consultation with me, I combine Branding and Marketing to establish foundations and help us both be on the same page better after I look over your data. If there is no data, then we will make some. It’s 2-for-1 right now at $75. ko-fi.com/criticalreikan…
If you are not a VTuber and you still want to support, you can either donate or become a member. I just set this up, so have at it~

As for what’s going on, I detailed things yesterday while being a crying mess aaaa

I’m safe today for now. If you’re kind to me, I’ll probably cry and a lot of you were kind to me, so I cried a lot ;~;
I also am aware of the state of things with how some people take emergency funds and don’t do much with them as intended.

Right now I have a detailed plan, albeit a plan B, that is now necessary to move out ASAP. I’m aiming for end of October/early November as move out day
I’m currently figuring out what I need to pay at least the first few months of rent n stuff on top of other things I need to move out here locally in Arizona with the friend I’m moving in with. Goal will be posted ASAP.
I’m also planning to do a subathon by the 8th with my new model. As much as I’d like to have a grand ol debut flipping haters off with a big ol “I’m here to stay” theme with me singing Kom Susser Todd with a Fiverr jazz band while a climate change montage happens, life hits ya
So my brother @sliferm20 gave me a suggestion

If you have no money and want to support me, you can help me brainstorm for this subathon and this party

I also do labor trades. Simple exchange of skills. I match your rates/hours and we work for each other. DM me if interested

Seeing so many people graduate and drop VTubing at once is sad to see. Makes it seem like it's truly #vtubersareoverparty

However, I see the #VTuberUprising still. There're so many debuts happening daily, it makes the head spin!

Here's some professional tips to be a #Vtuber 🧵
Before I begin, please support me during my ongoing crisis by either purchasing a professional Marketing & Branding consultation that is 50% OFF at $37!!!

If you aren't a VTuber or can afford that, you can become a patron on my Ko-Fi for as low as $1!!

If you haven't already read it, I analyzed and pointed out the reasons why so many VTubers are dropping out of the scene at the end of Summer 2021. Give it a read before reading ahead so that you can heed my warnings and learn from other's experiences 💜

CW: abuse, domestic violence, trauma, transphobia

I have some announcements to make tomorrow about me, my business, my VTubing, etc

Today has been life altering and the abusive situation at home with my father and I has taken a turn for the worse

Today I was assaulted 🧵
This is what my mental health day was in need of today and I feel ashamed that I needed to take a break and not help people I have business with.

I feel ashamed of my body, my confidence for once in a decade has tanked, and I suffer from psychosis and other issues bc of abuse
A lot of issues that I have because of this abuse affects everything. It makes me work too much, it makes me have self defense mechanisms in inappropriate moments with people I love, and just so much more that ruins relationships.

I have been abused all of my life

Is it truly #VtubersAreOverParty ??

We see so many drop out of the scene and now give a retrospective on their individual disillusionment. I took time to research this and contemplate on predictions that I had been making for the past year as to why this would happen 🧵
What I found while compiling testimonials both in private and searching here on Twitter is not shocking.

What we are seeing is a spike in realization of what it takes to be a VTuber alongside things like burn-out, dissolution of cliques, and more I'll dive into
1) Rise n Grind is toxic and accelerates burn-out

What you will see if you ask VTubers not just now, but before and likely in the near future is that it takes a lot of work to be successful in this new field.

The way in which you work matters a lot.

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.
