In the year 2018 Animegate Approaches
No one knows what’s happening with the absolutely insane changes to anime dubs to force a Social Justice Narrative and impressive hidden propaganda within what could be called “Children’s Cartoons” or Japanese Anime. While we could do a barrel roll and a backflip into the world of conspiracy theories we can see companies like “SyFy“, “Kotaku”, and “Crunchy Roll” or “The Mary Sue” are pushing articles full of ideologies which attack the “Right” and victim complexes which scream “I’m triggered at the designs of characters in anime”. We could link more of their articles but we would rather not give them traffic (Google is a godsend for those frothing for “FACTS OR GTFO) and I feel the link to the absolutely BONKERS SyFy article was enough.
We can see it in the rhetoric and the size of some of these “posts” and “claims” liking the content in anime to fascism and “Far right thinking”. Some of the statements from SyFy go as far as to say “Japan is trying to normalize fascism and the imagery”. It’s clearly obvious that these morons have never actually WATCHED anime for more than a few choice episodes of Full Metal Alchemist or the second to last episode of The Original Gundam. Without a SINGLE word spoken to a Japanese history major the writer of this prattle without a consideration for Anime made to have the children watching it know exactly what Fascism is:
However, this is just scratching the surface. The lack of an actual education and the pushing of dishonest opinions and ideals is leading the so called “Main Stream Nerd Culture” down a dark, stupid, path of self destruction. If SyFy can publish an article with paragraphs of lies compounded with false information and hammer home that “ANIMEFAN=NAZIS” we’ll be seeing more and more original content from Japan being perverted and twisted like the dubs we’ve been seeing as of late to reflect a work of extremist propaganda and not a form of enjoyable escapist media. You’ve got raving lunatics like MICHELLE VILLANUEVA injecting her own twisted opinion into the fandom and projecting exactly what her bosses that pay her money to post her inane bullshit ramble for over 5 pages of “content” as a “News Article”. Here at Chasing Sasquatch we don’t tolerate that kind of thing…
Here is a video on the article from youtuber Weaponized Nerd Rage
Of course Michelle Villanueva would NEVER use the actual HUGE and GLARING parody content from Japan or Hugely Popular Topical and Superficial Content which has been around for over a DECADE from LIVING LEGEND Akira Toriyama of Dragonball Z.
So what does this mean? What is “Animegate” and what are it’s parameters for being a scandal? Well, you’ve seen the article from Michelle, you’ve HEARD the horrible injection of SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS into dubs. You’ve even heard parodies of it mockingly in the Team 4 Star videos on youtube. Eventually, the people spending money on anime are going to get tired of this and I’m sorry to say but there are more of us with more disposable cash who spend money on Anime and Comics than there are critics of it like Villa-Nuttella and whatever her roster of “Deplorable” friends consist of over at the now defunct and slowly burning zeppelin that is SyFy. People are going to start outing these extremists for what they are:
Domestic terrorists demonizing people through social media and the manipulation of imported content to establish a Straw-Man narrative with false flags and transition it into a “Slippery Slope”
A storm is coming. Do you run from it? Take shelter in a safe place? You decide.
Funimation is Officially pulling their support and licenses from Crunchyroll due to a conflict of interest and bias from subs and dubs being changed to fit a political narrative that does not fit the original work therefor support from the CR Platform is being pulled. While they refuse to comment on the reasons why we know that the sudden coverage from people like from Youtube like “Itsagundam”, “WeaponizedNerdRage”, a dozen other social media reviewers and potentially us bringing to light the gross misrepresentation from the original content we’re going to say this is a victory for the original works from Glorious Nippon.

Star Wars and the Truth about Russian Trolls
Since 9/29/18 “Reliable Nerd News Sources” like “Epicstream”, “Kotaku”, “The Verge”, “The Hollywood Reporter” and “USA Today” have reported:
“Russian Trolls make up half the people critical of TLJ (The Last Jedi)”
While it would be a wonderful boon for Lucasfilms and Disney to be able to say that the honest-to-goodness truth of the “Fan Backlash” is because of “Russian Interference” none of these actual “Reporters” and Article Writers or so-called “Journalists” actually went out of their way to verify any facts!
Rather than actually checking the source these “News Sources” have been hailing the following from “Morton Bay” as some kind of holy truth:
“Russian trolls weaponize Star Wars criticism as an instrument of information warfare with the purpose of pushing for political change, while it is weaponized by right-wing fans to forward a conservative agenda and for some it is a pushback against what they perceive as a feminist/social justice onslaught,” Bay wrote. Further exploration into the Actual Facts and Evidence provided is nothing more than conjecture based on “The origin of the tweets”. Weaponized cognitive discord and propaganda? What was he thinking? This is a pretty huge claim with a simple glance over “topical data”.
Flash forward a few days to last night, 10/2/2018, I decided to do my own digging into the Metadata. Within 5 minutes I was able to verify that more than 3/4ths of the “Twitter handles from Russia” with negative criticism were actually VPN derived. What does that mean? Let me give you the definition:
VPN- A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.
This means that while Bay would LOVE to blame Russia for the “Star Wars StR8 H8” he’s actually incorrect (either uninformed, blissfully omitting actual research data, a liar, some form of weaponized Asperger syndrome sped, or multiple of the forementioned). Turns out that the people making fun of said property are actually just trolling people who don’t know how to run a “Script Kiddy” level IP address check through the preliminary data provided. To top it off we went to IRC with our OWN VPN with our supposed masked location somewhere in Uganda and asked a few “Hackers” who were part of the larger Star Wars Chat Communities and Fan forums. We got a few quotes from them to put your fears at ease (Names have been changed to protect the journalistic integrity and sources):
“I’ve got 87 twitter accounts attached to a unique IP each all designated in Russia and former USSR geographical locations which are their own nations now. I live in Florida.” -Dave
” ROFL LOL bro I have 22 different online identities all with ips out of russia and all of them bang-on tlj what a retarded s***show.” -Mike
“That F***in moron Bay goes to a college for journalism and communication, refuses to get in touch with the actual community, praises twitter handles locations as the word of God and thinks he’s some kind of all-knowing-all-seeing untouchable student journalist because every news source is hungry for tying Russian Collaboration to anything they can to push their political agenda while ignoring the glaring fact that we’re here and have not heard a peep from this hack. He’s a joke and so are these supposed news sources. F***ing trash!” -Clockwork Lazarus
After the foray into actual hardcore fan-chats, facebook groups, and a trip into a digital-hacker-land we even took a little look on the “Dark Web” with the IRCs running VPNs and remote identity servers we’ve actually gotten to the bottom of this story and while the idiots at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism are willing to post anything to get them noticed without actual fact checking beyond the superficial data that is Twitters standard geodata, giant buffoons, like Rian Johnson will hide behind ANY excuse not to take responsibility for the built up, plot hole ridden, “Kill the characters off as soon as they were developed in the last episode”, mess that was TLJ. This article was written out of California, by the way, no Russian Trolls here RIAN.
Tommy Wiseu’s “The Room” is now free on youtube
“The Room” for free?!
You heard correctly, boys and girls! Tommy’s MAGNUM OPUS, The Room, is now free to view on Youtube! While we could make pages and pages of content on this gem but instead we will provide a place for you to view it yourself below:
Feel the depth of Wiseu’s brilliance in this unrivaled movie about… a mans decent into mania. Love, lies, broken friendships and betrayal. This movie has it all!
Yes, this is the movie that spawned the book and the film “Disaster Movie”.
Tommy decided to pull his version that was posted. Despite the fact it was reaching about 5 million views and shares. We are using another video posted by another source for critical review. If Tommy decides to post it again we will happily update the link. We will ALSO be more than happy to link his Facebook and youtube page (we know you’re reading this Tommy).
UPDATE 2 The ELECTRIC BOOGALOO
Tommy seems to be removing every version from Youtube AFTER having posted it for free. So we’re just posting another one. And another. And Another… and another.
Uproar on the internet when new Superman postulated
Stirring started yesterday, 9/11/18, people began frothing at the mouth as various news sources began distributing the news. “What if Superman was Michael B. Jordan?” began a frenzy that continues on today. The wet blankets at Movieweb and USA Today have been jumping on the bandwagon so we will too. Having referred to those who enjoy the comic book escapism as “Fans” as the word got around Twitter, Facebook, and whatever other social media could spread it on the web. DC Comics, Animation, and Movie consumers have been wondering “just what is going on?” and there really is no simple answer.
Henry Cavill, Superman from the last 3 big live action films from DC, has bowed out and Warner Brothers are looking for a recast. Soon enough, people have been looking for someone somewhere to replace the Man of Steel. However, some folks have been looking to pander to another issue. DC’s been facing a general loss of income with some of their properties in addition to pressure over “Racial Equality”. How do they fix this problem? How will the world of the DC universe be changed? How many movies will they have to produce to restart a whole continuity hinged upon a melanin challenged Kryptonian?
Enter, M.B. Jordan, he’s been in movies and played a character in 2 different properties from Marvel (but Fantastic 4 is Sony). Hundreds of millions of dollars to produce more origin story movies absolutely would not be lost (right?) and it would further diversify the Man of Steel for sure. However, this would not be the end of changes as the entire continuity established by DC. We can’t even FIND the sources from “Movieweb” and “USA Today” or the dozen of other “news sources” that have stated M.B.J. is a factual consideration.
We made our own phone call. Dropped the “Hi, Robert from Chasing Sasquatch news and I need a statement on the Superman Replacement”. The Response was “No comment”. Who in their right mind is saying this is a fact then? Oh, wait, the guys in the first paragraph.
Italiano Couture has been taking money and not producing product as agreed upon…
Last month we covered the fraudulent weirdness from the Cult of Crunchyroll. This month we’re fraught with concern. Designer and Costume Fabricator, Italiano Couture, done goofed. It started before this year but we have, on good authority, the evidence below:
This was from Model Scarlet who made a public announcement about it on Facebook:
Upon reviewing the data we found that this isn’t the only person she’s snowed. It seems like Italiano Couture has a history of doing shady and shoddy ethical practices. It was happening a year ago and Scarlet spoke up then too.
We sent a message on Facebook through one of our affiliated news pages and received no response. Upon further interview with Scarlet we have a story that goes beyond what we can disclose here. The question now is:
- Will Italiano Couture finish any of the products they have been paid in advanced for?
- Should Italiano Couture refund anyone for services NOT rendered?
- Can Italiano Couture make good on a professional standard AFTER being reported to the B.B.B.?
- Will Italiano Couture try to bully US for providing evidence of suspected theft despite Freedom of the Press and the First Amendment Freedom of information act like they do their customers they owe thousands to?
At this point in time we have to reflect. As a professional who has taken money it is your duty to provide a product. Because if you don’t you’ll be a fraud like EA, Crunchyroll, Gearworks or any number of industry giants out there. Just because you have the customer’s money does not give you the right to provide nothing. Italiano Couture? Really?
