HI everyone, this is my first post on Subscribestar. I've decided to go this route to bring people together and get feedback on the sort of content I'm creating, so I hope you find some time to visit Anime Independent and have a look around.

Perhaps a good place to start would be the controversial Rise of the Shield Hero, where I look in-depth at the true nature of false-rape claims and why it's important that the devastating effects of this practice should be recognised and not shouted down.

I have some personal experience of a fake rape claim through a family connection over 20 years ago, so this issue was something I was particularly sensitive to.
