For What It’s Worth

For the last couple of days, I’ve struggled with how to write this post.  I struggled emotionally because of the heartfelt feelings, and confusedly, because I suck at writing. So here’s the deal. In regards to the false allegations last year, and AnimeNEXT not being forthcoming to help me with this situation, I am banned from the convention.  In return of not getting any help to resolve this, I have pulled, or in the process of pulling all of my AnimeNEXT (and possibly MangaNEXT) footage from all of my social media sites.
