During a recent stream of Fate/EXTELLA, a musou action game + extremely gay visual novel I've been streaming, one of our viewers pointed out that something a love interest did was abusive.

We acknowledged this as soon as we saw the comment, and once we were done with that scene we paused the game to discuss it with the chat. The goal wasn't to make excuses for the game and the character, but to validate the concerns that this viewer raised, and to acknowledge that yes, this was problematic.

We've watched streams before where everyone seemed to be okay with something that triggered or unnerved us, and it's a really bad feeling. We may lose some (hypothetical) viewers from having these discussions, but I like to think that the ones who are invested enough in our streams to let us know when they're uncomfortable are worth keeping.

Click here if you can't see the Fate/EXTELLA trailer.

If that interests you at all, you can subscribe to our stream here, or view our Fate/EXTELLA series from the beginning. Our next stream will be tomorrow, Monday April 17, at 9 PM EDT, and will last about an hour and a half. We're happy to answer questions and explain context behind what's going on.
