I'll try to break down everything I know as best as I can. There's still ongoing lulz happening. Today sean schemmel (Dub voice of Goku) was called a beta male and he got triggered pretty HARD.
I don't really follow it or any of the other shit that keeps happening but I've caught glimpses of it on Twitter and 4chan every now and again.
What's the Shield Hero thing about? I saw that pop up a few times but didn't really get any real information to piece stuff together.
It starts off as your typical isekai (isekai a genre meaning 'another world') series. Guys get transferred to another world, they get RPG cheat-like powers so on so forth. Now in this one the first thing that happens is one of the women decides to side with the hero of the shield and join his party. Next morning he finds all of his shit stolen, and the culprit is the bitch who joined the party. Bitch accuses the shield hero of rape which he didn't do, everyone believes her because she also just happens to be the king's daughter and a wahmen, and so starts the beginning of the series.
So the issue here is that people are crying about how false accusations of rape never happen, it doesn't portray women right, the writer is a male piece of shit blah blah blah. The funny thing about this is that they believe that the original author is a man when actually it's a woman lol. The producer of the anime did an AMA at reddit and basically said he had no idea there was an issue seeing as japan doesn't give a shit. Places like crunchyroll and ANN aren't looking too kindly on Shield Hero and Goblin Slayer because of rape. The issue with goblin slayer is that they brought in the whole idea of rapey goblins and that's not sitting well with people but that's another topic.
The memes have been ongoing. Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi (and the rest of funimation) being the accusers and Vic Mignogna being the accused looks the same as what shield hero is right now.
I also caught glimpses of another thing where some dude got accused of getting touchy with a cosplayer and then that cosplayer came out and said that she never accused the guy of anything and that he was always respectful towards her.
Yup, that was Vic Mignogna in the picture. I think it was AnimeNewsNetwork who originally posted that article too. ANN basically took the picture and created an article with it. It's funny that ANN is accusing Vic of rape because one of their higher ups was also accused of rape at some point. But it's okay because this other guy is on the side of wahmen.
She defended Vic and said everything was done with her and her parent's permission. ANN deleted the picture but didn't apologize and kept the article up.
Everything these days is just such a fucking shitshow man. You have that metoo crap, then the whole sony policy on anime tiddies, every week a new metoo. It's just one shit after another that it's getting uninteresting to keep up
True true, it's all the same shit nowadays. It's just sad that they're isn't much people can do about these false accusations. People on Funi's side won't give any evidence when asked and keep saying it happened it happened so it's true. At least the people on the side of Vic are going out of their way to Debunk and show actual evidence. I'm trying to be neutral on this but it's hard when the evidence keeps pointing to Vic being innocent and the SJW won't give any evidence.
It sucks that they decided to bring this whole drama to twitter rather than to the courts. More than likely because they probably wouldn't win in the courts. Once it's in the public like this your career is practically done.
Oh and here's some of the coverage about Sean Schemmel/Goku's VA acting a fool lol.
Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi have been pretty toxic with this whole situation. Jamie Marchi had gone out there saying she wanted vic's balls to be cut off, but funimations okay with that because wahmen. Lots of people are being shadowbanned on twitter too. MarzGirl or something like that was the one who created the #kickvic tag (also a big time feminist SJW) and has been campaigning pretty hard. Meepygirl went out there and doctored her own footage to make the guy look bad but got destroyed when another user posted the original footage which showed that she's just an awkward fool.
And there's obviously way more stuff to it, but that's all I feel like posting right now.
