Wait, I think you meant to say this:

A high-functioning autistic girl didn't get the brand she wanted for the show, so she tried to drop out by citing a bunch of issues, knowing this would probably lead to a ban (which it did). Autistic girl throws a semi-public hissy fit, cusses out S, S apologizes and lets autistic girl back in, and austistic girl CONTINUES to talk sh*t about the situation on ig and in chats. S finds out. So she gets re-banned from show and almost gets a temporary comm ban for dragging out private issues all over the comm.

I think that's what you meant, anon.

No because she’s a classic and didn’t have items to use for the brand she was chosen for.

She has health issues but oni staff bent over backwards trying to accommodate for these things. The girl kept claiming she had to ‘fight’ for accommodations but it’s very obvious from the screencaps that she was given whatever she asked for.

She also lied about the extent of accommodations offered to her, making it seem like the staff was unreasonable when they basically gave her whatever she asked for and more.

>>10290032
M dropped because she didn’t want to model for the brand she was chosen for. She claimed it was because she wouldn’t have the stuff for that brand, but she had at least 4 of us Houston lolitas offer to let her borrow whatever she needed, plus the Oni staff (S and B included) offering the same, so that should’ve been a non-issue. Her other complaints around needing accommodations for her illnesses, which are totally valid requests, were met with concession after concession. They offered her food. They offered her use of a specific restroom so she wouldn’t be seen by the audience before the show. They confirmed with her any specific sensory issues and gave her assurances that they wouldn’t be an issue. Every legitimate concern she had was answered as best any volunteer con organization can do. But regardless of their efforts to make it work, M decided she didn’t want to model, which was her choice (albeit a poor one, imo). Oni J Fash team which includes S and B decided that if she dropped like that it would result in a ban, which they then discussed after the fact with M and tried to come to a better understanding.

The drama that ensued is that M then started complaining to nearly any Houston Lolita that would listen that S was ableist and V was somehow a monster over this after M being called out on her hysterics. If it was just complaints to friends, that’s be one thing, but M is making it her personal mission to turn everyone against V and S, spreading vicious lies about what really happened. It’s also curious that M has no proof to back up her side except for screenshots that conspicuously cut out parts of the conversation as if they’re curated specifically to make M seem like the reasonable one.....

To be fair Anime Matsuri is the only con I've ever been to where major events start 2 hours late consistently. It goes far beyond the standard "cons run behind" thing.

The fashion show was hours late consistently for years. I remember one year finally getting into the room at the time it was scheduled to end.
One year they started hentai fest almost an hour late but didn't run over so they essentially cut the event in half. Charged for it too.
Or the year they scheduled a game tournament to happen during the cosplay contest so the contest started over an hour late.

You clearly don’t know how the entertainment business works, do you? You got to have a legal contract to work for anything, like a fashion show to even a commercial, for a certain amount of years. I heard crazier stories of how people got themselves in a ten year contracts without fully checking on what they are getting themselves into.

Also, Reika had business in Taiwan during 2018, so she got lucky that she couldn’t go. She’s more like first come first serve type of person since she has a schedule to go to other conventions other than the US you know, plus she has her own cosplay cafe in Akihabara.

So did she have an existing contract with AM? Because she came 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2019.

Smaybe her contract expired and she signed on AGAIN in 2019?

Or maybe ( most likely ) she gets invited each year, and comes each year on a new contract, and was busy in Taiwan in 2018. Which is why she couldn't come.

Which means either

A.) She is being abused by AM and is just insane or a masochist and decides to come every year. (Very unlikely)

Or

B.) She is a normal guest who is invited, and comes like anyone else.

Sorry that AM is the only anime con in Texas that brings in big name guests that YOU like, but a lot of people will still be boycotting anyways because the whole thing is run by corrupt creeps.

AM should have applied for the proper visa, sure. But yugene was just as in the wrong, and holds equal blame for what happened. Yugene knew she didn't sign any sort of visa paperwork.

Lesson learned. it was years and years ago, And it hasn't happen since.
