Ryan Kopf is a 30yo narcissistic man-child who is fueled by Onision level delusions of grandeur. He is the "CEO" of AnimeCons.Org, heading many Midwestern anime conventions including, Anime Midwest, AniMinneapolis, Meta Con, and Anime-Zing. According to his personal website he is a self proclaimed, "internet computer scientist engineer specialist techno-evangelist" and "owner of the moon". When he isn't LARPing as Elon Musk, he can be found sexually assaulting women at one of the various cons he runs or ranting on social media about suing people for slander.

>First allegation of sexual assault occurred 2013 at his con, Anime Zing.

>The second sexual assault allegation occurred at Anime Milwaukee 2018. It appears there is still an ongoing investigation at this time. He is confirmed banned from attending the con in the future.
>A third sexual assault allegation dating from 2016 has just come to light on social media from a former staff member during a trip the staff had taken together in Japan.
>In response to the most recent allegation, he has released a censored image from a sexual encounter in addition to uncensored audio from a sexual encounter without consent of the other party to "prove his innocence".
>He has attempted to sue multiple people for slander, including a random tumblr user, for posts involving information about these sexual assault allegations.

Other fun facts about Ryan:
>He attempted to run for Mayor of his small hometown in Iowa at age 18, but unsurprisingly failed to secure enough votes to win.
>Founded the weeb dating site MaiOtaku.com because who doesn't want to join a dating site founded by a alleged sexual predator?
>Has questionably run additional cons under the name Chrono LLC and Black Materia Inc.
>Was kicked out of the Lolita tea party and removed from staff at Kawaiicon in Hawaii in April 2019.

Other People of Interest:
Erica Wise
>Erica is Ryan's lead minion, or as she puts it "knight brigade". She will white knight for him relentlessly, aggressively attacking anyone along the way. She can be seen at his cons leading the date auctions and 13+ cosplay strip shows.

Kassy Caldwell
>Kassy is Ryan's long time cuck of a live-in girlfriend. She too will blindly and aggressively defend him. He in turn pays for "Lolita lifestyle" and grants her access to lolita brand guests.

OP here, been thinking about it for a while, the latest drama was too much not to. Who uploads audio of their sexual encounters without consent? As I read more about this guy, I realized the rabbit hole went so much deeper.

I have a feeling there are going to be many stories like this coming out. Kopf has been creeping around the midwest con scene for the better half of a decade now.

Erica is definitely a cow in her own right. I think she clings so strongly to him because without his cons, she'd lose her own personal brigade of followers and would have to get a regular job that isn't her dressing up as Tony Stark, Dante, Sephiroth, etc. and stripping? She's definitely had her own share of drama, but in comparison to Ryan, she's mostly just his annoying sidekick. Same goes with his girlfriend, Kassy. If they didn't benefit from him as much as they do, I highly doubt they'd be so desperate to defend him.

The most recent accuser used to run their merch booth. Ryan was saying that they were still coming because they "fired her" a while back for being a shady person. Funny that they are bailing on his cons when he was trying to use them as an example of people choosing his side. Ryan has already had them removed from the anime midwest website lineup too. Hopefully we will see more guests stop supporting this trash.

She did say she was heavily intoxicated. I'm still mostly disgusted he thought it was okay to share audio of a sexual encounter without consent of the second party. Keep that shit in court.

Greg Ayres is the same guy who was dating like a 19 year old boy in his forties, as well as made an effort to shit on other VO who were on Ouran. I'm always surprised this dude still gets work or anyone puts up with him, so of course, Kopf would.

I'm also not surprised Steam Powered Giraffe walked. They have a lot of experience having to fight to get paid with shows like Youmacon as is, so I guess they're just used to it.

Yikes. I don't follow voice actors, so this is the first I've heard of this Greg guy, he sounds Vic level creepy.

My bad, meant to write I'm also surprised that Steam Powered Giraffe didn't walk.

But yeah, almost ten years ago I had talks with other voice actors about Greg Ayers, and years later I've never had a very high opinion. He was just never as famous as Vic (and reacts like a loon if you mention Vic, too), so his dirty laundry doesn't really get out.

She's been riding Ryan's coat tails since the very start, there's no way she would risk losing the easy paycheck and taste of fame even if it meant being a decent person. Same with his other lackeys and why his girlfriend Kassy will always put the blame on "the other woman" every single time Ryan cheats. They are all disgusting people tbh.

This is definitely the first where he has been accused of potentially drugging someone. Aria, the victim who spoke out about the incident that took place on their trip to Japan, did say he targeted her after she had been heavily drinking.

This comment fucked me up. Does anyone know who else the 'lackeys' they're referring to could be? I can only confirm the Greg Ayres. But I can also confirm that he courted someone I knew into defending him. And by courted, I mean, inviting them to do shots at odd hours of the night all weekend in the staff room, alone, no friends or GF allowed, until they came out convinced that Kopf was innocent. Alcohol is def his weapon of choice, he gets people drunk and plays mind games. So manipulative.

Being Facebook official is still kinda important in a relationship as a way to say that you're publicly in a loving relationship with that person, even if you've been dating quietly for a while. That's majorly fucked up

Yooooo I know this dude IRL. About 10 years ago, he "bought" me at the Nebraskon Dating Auction. That night, he tried to take me to a room party when the guy running it kicked me out after everyone realized I was significantly under aged. I had never lied to Ryan about my age, and said I'd probably get kicked out of the party. He then tracked me down later at the dance and shoved his tongue down my throat. My friend who had been keeping a close eye on Ryan then came to my rescue and took me back to my room. Ryan tracked me down again the next day while we were loading up our car to leave, and tried to convince me to make out with him again. My mom and sister were like 5 feet away, so I declined and offered a hug instead. He added me on facebook a few days later, which I found strange because I had never given him my last name but figured he'd seen me tagged in other people's pictures and found me that way. We're still friends on FB, even though I have him restricted from seeing anything I post.

Regarding a public records request for the police report of a sexual assault during February 16-18, 2018 in Milwaukee, WI at Hyatt Regency Milwaukee with Ryan Kopf, I finally got a letter back in reply to my email in June 2019. It was the same letter that was shared on that tumblr account and it's signed by Alfonso Morales (Chief of Police) and Kerry Namin (Police Sergeant in charge of Open Records). Only way of getting a record would be "if the victims involved in the incident consent to the release of the responsive record." I'm assuming it DID happen because an anime convention banning a person publicly usually takes extreme breaking of rules or the potential harm to attendees overrules that individual's right to attend with a paid badge.

Another person came forward with a story about Ryan

No. 77289


I don't have proof so take this as you will.

This involves my friend and doesn't want to be involved, but some years ago at Ohayocon, she told me that Ryan "wanted to go look at the stars" all cute, etc, so they used the stairs to try to get to the roof. Before they got to the top, he proceeded to force himself upon her and rape her in the staircase. She just thought he couldn't hear her say no and that it was her fault.

She's moved on past it mostly because this wasn't recent, but she's still traumatized enough that she just doesn't want to get anything done about it.

Poor Kassy, excluded from the Japan Trips (sorry a lot of people have trouble believing they're all paid for out of pocket) and left home to deal with the haters.
This was a response to a survey going around about whether or not AMW should happen this year. Hyatt and the Rosemont convention centre have already shut down conventions and trade shows for awhile, including ACen.
I'd feel bad for Kassy being cucked so hard, but tbh, I've also seen her plugging their conventions really hard on mutual friends' posts, and that's just really tacky.

No. 147389

I found this thread after seeing the post about his bar on Facebook and the more I read the more I am horrified. I am also afraid to speak out anywhere publicly due to his history of suing people.

When I was 14 and he was 19 he molested me anally several times in his shitty little gaming hangout business that he had. Then a couple of days after I turned 15 he came over when my parents weren't home to hang out and then when they came home unexpectedly he said he'd reveal himself to them if I didn't have sex with him so I did because I didn't want to be grounded further (he knew this). He brought condoms and everything and I just remember being really dizzy and spaced out and scared. I never said anything because my homelife was abusive and he convinced me I wanted it. He bragged about taking my virginity and how be had done that with a couple of other girls who "liked it" and how we were within the state statute for statutory rape so the other stories of him talking about consent on here freaked me out because he has a pattern. He is absolutely a dangerous rapist.

He's been doing this for a long time and I really hope someday he gets caught. Justice needs to be served, it's just unfortunate that it's too late for me to do anything about it.

No. 147435

Honestly the best way for anyone to do anything at this point is to gather evidence/receipts. His reputation is mostly ruined, but the anime con scene is full of absolute degenerates who will defend him for the sake of excusing themselves going to his shitty little cons in Iowa. If legally, nothing can be done, at least socially, he can be proven to be a predator. It really is similar to the Onision situation.

Is he really this fucking stupid? This isn't "proving something without evidence", it's multiple allegations and testimonies, no community would go this hard on a man without enough of them experiencing his abuse. If it was this easy to falsify allegations in mass then every other place around here would be doing it to "beat competitors". Thankfully the other places around here have really cool owners/staff (GP1, NerdHQ, Trademart even though I really don't like the owner there, VGE, etc) and 1.) don't deserve to lose business and 2.) aren't assholes who sexually assault women. I've talked to him irl ages ago and he gives off weird vibes, I know many other ppl who agree as well.

Any recipts on this, anon? Sounds milky. I know they didn't have their liquor license yet.

I wonder what happened. Kassy seems like way too much of a doormat to have pushed for the break up. She's allowed him to keep her a secret for nearly a decade, cheated on her dozens of times, and generally treated her like garbage. Does Ryan have someone new already? I feel like that is realistically the only way he'd finally get rid of Kassy. Much like Onision tried with Lainey. kek

>like the "non profits" aren't taking money too
>as if shows' productions just get better every year on their own
Yes, because the non profits are supposed to put the money earned right back into it instead of funneling it all into a con head's pockets for him to use to try to groom young girls on "business trips" to Japan.

Ah yes, a scrote correlating sex with violence as a threat. Definitely not a big red flag fictional or not.

I know we hate this guy but people try too hard sometimes to bring them down and it’s kind of sad and sometimes annoying.

Also this was posted yesterday.

you should post the professional version of this statement instead

anyway i know a lot of people who are digging into this and they're reporting that it's not as simple as an SSO across websites. people who haven't registered for one of his cons in like 7 or 8 years are seeing their info on his skeezy anime dating site

… maybe because this dating site was createdover 10 years ago at this point. Not that crazy or weird if they made it 7 years ago.
People freak over everything these days.

No. 180332

WTF are you talking about? People who registered a few years ago are seeing their data there too so he's constantly porting info even if the site started ten years ago

No. 180335

Yeah. It’s been happening for 10 years now. That’s the point of what I said. People 10 years ago to now have who registered for a komf con are in the system. Why are people just now realizing this // talking about it when it’s been happening so long. When I made my account like ? 8 years ago I knew maiiotaku was affiliated with him because he’d advertise with emails and stuff. This being a website he’s always advertised on con pages.
I hate the guy as much as anyone else I’m just saying this is a very nitpicky thing to call him out for, especially after 10 years that’s it’s been happening.

His youtube has a video of his email with a bunch of personal info visible:

It's unreal how careless this loser is.(embed youtube)

No. 182189

The fact it has been happening for 10 years and nobody noticed speaks more for the number of people who use that crappy dating site. Just because he got away with it for 10 years without anyone noticing does not in any way make this okay. Prior to his changing the programming on the back end, people were able to make a new account on one of his con web sites (even for MINORS) and it would show up as a dating profile without them "activating" anything on the dating site. This is straight up fraud. He can go to jail for this…and an FBI investigation HAS been started.

If the girl is too young to know what "XD" means, the girl is too young, Ryan. goddamn.
