Some milk summarized from the previous thread:>Queen Sharla and King Chris have been secretly dating since at least 2019, clues are all over the place. Currently doing a very shit job of hiding it.>Norm is creepier than ever. Has a secret sugar-mommy wife and hāfu child, can never be seen with his family and gives the impression of being single. Also known for aggressive outbursts and sockpuppet shenanigans.>Emma is still having monthly breakdowns but is able to make and edit videos about it.>Tokyo Creative vloggers trying to stay afloat, now with less budget, less consistent quality videos, but maybe most importantly less Okano-backstabbery.>Mimei, Kim Dao, Bii.. lost and forgotten?
Taylor, Aki and some other Jvloggers may have their own thread, please post your (non-)milk in their corresponding threads!
Please sage your non-milk posts! General rules apply: https://lolcow.farm/rules
That’s because they’re all in their thirties and trying to grow up. Back then Youtube was popping off and so was the Jvlogger thing. Now it’s so so common to see Japan this and that videos. Those girls were this circle of drama that people just loved to tune in and watch. We should all be thanking Dakota Rose because Taylor would’ve never botched herself up if Koot hadn’t of become a japanese viral blonde dolly that made it in the news. Taylor just wanted the same opportunities and attention. Yeah she did modelling and was pretty before she got her work done but she’s tall and she looks like a chipmunk now. Then she turned to YouTube, latched off other Jvloggers and Venus Angelic before dumping her and flaunted her rich Chinese husband.
Those were the days sighhhhh

Apparently Sharla didn't realize that her personal pictures were visible to the camera.
This was mentioned in the previous thread as well, but was brushed off because of no evidence.>>>/w/165631
People should really screenshot stuff like this.
Right!? Sharla has always been super private about her romantic life. I don’t remember her ever showing her ex husband’s face on her vids, snd she didn’t talk about the divorce until she had moved back to Japan.
Some people don’t want their relationships to be super public, and that is okay. Refreshing, even.
But since they are both known vloggers on Youtube it is obviously going to be noticed that they share living quarters and everything else; hiding this
relationship is futile.

I guess Chris was the reason she was in Sendai quite often.
She tried really hard to get her husband in her videos and she was pushing him to show his face, you can see it in the videos at that time. She even announced she will show her face in the next video (for real not the nails thing) but suddenly he was sick and never happened.
Sharla wanted pretty badly to make couple videos and she managed to make some even if he was not showing his face because he didn't want to.
I was slightly annoyed by him but since the baby, he’s become insufferable. See vid related, his wife gave birth and a social worker came to do a wellness check, and he has the gall to ask “aren’t you gonna ask about how i’m
doing?” Even jokingly, pushing a baby out of your vag vs losing sleep as a dad is not the same thing.
He also keeps in spats with his wife over the stupidest shit in the vlogs and it’s just gross.
Tbh I sometimes get the feeling they are well aware the public knows they are dating and that it's all obvious, but are using the secrecy as a publicity thing. Hence for the occasional breadcrumb they leave. People are suddenly more interested and inspecting their (old) videos, that's good for their channels.
Sharla strikes me as a person who would like to show off relationship/couple stuff. Especially when in comparison her other YT girlfriends are open about things and are even starting a family. Chris not so much tho, his online persona where he interacts with people is all about being some sort of Top Gear-esque cynical bro, doing cool stuff for a somewhat more male audience. It's possible he doesn't know how to insert the announcement on his side of YT, because he's such a perfectionist and control freak when it comes about his branding, it would not match his channels and he is afraid of something like that. He doesn't like the image of being a vlogger, he sees himself as a filmmaker.

Yeah that was fake milk. Lily is not dating anyone and has been single for 3 years. I sometimes wonder if she really moved on after Chris dumped her.
I can't believe he gave Wolverine as a part of his kid's name lmao
it's even a hard word for japanese people to pronounce, what a way to fuck your kid
plus the kid has a kirakira first name 'taiga'
If he wanted the 'wolfie' nickname, just go with Wolfgang. If the superhero concept is so important, then why not use wolverine's real name "Logan", and even then still you could call the kid "wolfie" as a nod to the character and I think people would get it
wow. you sound so bitter.
anyway I agree with anyone else. I think not going public with it is a smart decision so far… apparently as the relationship progresses it seems to get more difficult but so far the huge public doesn't know yet and therefore don't comment stupid shit on it. Can you imagine how annoying the fans will get if the majority knows about this?
iirc from the last thread it's kirakira bc they used the character for tiger 虎 (tora) but with the pronunciation taiga, instead of a name that just reads as taiga.
i feel pretty bad for the kid honestly, it's bad enough as a western name but having to explain your name being wolverine in japanese seems annoying

I unironically believe Chris and Sharla make a really cute couple, although part of me is jelly because I've always liked Chris.
Genuinely don't get why you guys are mad about it. Chris seems like one of the few jvloggers who is actually a genuinely moral person, and Sharla just went through an awful divorce. In the Instagram pic with both of them where she says he's the reason she came to Japan, she looks really happy. From the heart.
The only one who is mad about it is Chris's ex Lily, who spilled the beans on them in the previous thread.
And has been posting bitter comments about them .
No one else cares.
His gf was on the trip to Korea with him when that pic was taken.
Also the whole "you're the reason I came to Japan" thing was a joke between them.
He mentioned watching her vids before he came to Japan.

He commented the same thing to Rachel and Jun.
JFC it's not about if they're a good match or not, it's about how fucking WEIRD they are about their relationship and hiding it FFS
Why can't they just be real with people
I know Mira is a total cunt but Rachel and Jun throwing her under the bus like that to me was really bitchy. They’re not entirely innocent as they make out. Why not confront Mira privately?
I never liked Mira and I don’t like R&J either to be honest. They’re so carbonated and wooden like with no personality.
They only got popular because a basic white chick was marrying a Japanese man because at the time AMWF relationships were big in trend and Japan vlogging was just taking off.
Now they’d never reach popularity by today’s standards.
People are just laughing because these weeb Japan youtubers all date each other and cause the most amount of drama.
I doubt Sharla would be able to stand living in England. Chris just comes across as a patronising cunt in my eyes. He started off funny now he’s annoying.
I remember that trend. You could literally get popular just by having a Japanese boyfriend.
I think that's why so many jvloggers produce shit content. They never really had to work for subs and their entire schtick was gimmicky and talentless from the start.
Chris and Sharla are so boring and basic. It's hilarious how Chris thinks he's this edgy cynic. He's a puffball with like no real edge to him whatsoever. He is so ignorant of most of the things he talks about, his knowledge is so surface level. His last video about architecture actually shocked me because he did actual research.
The two of them together are like the relationship equivalent of a yawn. I just think it's weird that they go to such lengths to hide it from their subs. It's like parents who are afraid for their kids to find out they have sex.

No need to repeat yourself.
Chris is basically a knock-off Jeremy Clarkson in Japan. But you've got to understand the quality of his competition are mostly women whose "content" still consists of eating whacky flavored Japanese snacks and whose marketing is basically "I have an Asian boyfriend please pay attention to me".
When looking at that competition he's Anthony Bourdain by comparison simply by virtue of having some comedic timing and actually bothering to go on trips that aren't Cat Island or some novelty value cafe.
SydSnap and Gigguk are not Japanese, they are an ex-pat married couple who are JVloggers
I mean, they're both weebs, but neither of them is Japanese
yeah cool. i was just trying to make the point that there are coupled j-vloggers that aren't "white dude/girl who needed to mate with japanese person"
i acknowledged they were weebs. i never said they had good content
Unrelated to your post but in the same vein, I came across this youtube channel from youtube recs. Tl;dw an american disney fanatic couple(japanese mother, military father) living in Japan and constantly doing weeb shit.
Seems innocent, but the more you watch, the more fucked it is. They constantly do kujis as a side business, but they also keep a shit ton of merch as well, so their home looks like a hoarder hell. They even record and make their kids do kujis. Often times they buy out 2+ entire kuji sets. They aren't hurting anyone else, but it's been a weird fascination watching hoarding behavior in anime form.
The whole living in Japan dream is kinda over with now compared to like a decade before. People are more interested in other countries, or most girls are now into korea because of kpop.
Jvloggers have constantly rehashed the same content for a decade
to be fair, chris is trying to travel out to more unique places in japan; compared the jvloggers who barely leave tokyo. But I think Chris is running out of ideas because according to Trash Taste, it's now coming down to Chris going to google map and zooming in into random places trying to find something and anything interesting lol
If the bar was set low like that, of course he would come out as the Anthony Bourdain of Japan. Please, his true competition like anon said would be channels like Only in Japan (John Daub) and Life Where I'm From. Compared to those channels, most of the time his work is superficial, poorly researched, always includes the same scripted people (and I am personally a little tired to see Natsuki try to deliberately fuck up English and be funny), and he rarely includes a Japanese interview that is actually in depth enough to feel refreshing. When I watch Only in Japan of LWIF, those videos radiate more passion and genuinity to me. Even Nobita from Japan (who is not as flashy or films as artistically as Chris) has some real interviews that make me feel like I've actually learned something very interesting. AIJ is like a fast food brand of burgers, flashy advertising, poor burger, but you kinda know what you get and like to eat it anyways. Can't be compared to a homemade, juicy burger or other meal that makes you happy, made with the freshest ingredients and most importantly made with love and passion.
I find it interesting Chris never collaborated with Only in Japan or LWIF to begin with. People have asked before too, his answer seems to be "idk it just never happened, next question". I don't buy that.
I really love those channels, especially TabiEats. Those guys are so genuine and wholesome, and they show you a lot of different types of Japanese food and small Japanese villages. You kind of get to see Japan through a local's point of view, still interesting and well explained to a foreign public.
I find "Kimono Mom" also watchable from time to time, she shows some nice and easy homecooking, that doesn't require a lot of weird ingredients and are kind of foolproof.
You must be so interesting and special :-)
But I do agree about his surface level knowledge but it also seems to work for his audience(emoticon use)
I watched them for a while and I stopped when I saw that people had payed for orders and 2 years later they still hadn't sent them out because 'insert excuse' They buy an awful lot of stuff for themselves while they're out doing their pick ups which is fine (even if it's hoarder-y) but yeah they sometimes buy entire lotteries out and it's not even for customers..it's for them and they drive around buying whole lotteries out so others must have trouble getting them in time.
What they do is they take the big prizes for themselves and they put the shitty prizes in 'mystery boxes' that they sell to their naive audience. They get alot of superchats whenever they go live so between that and the pick-ups that they take years to mail out/crap mystery boxes they're raking it in and spending their earnings just as quickly on dangerously overfilling their millitary provided apt with hoards of boxes til they can barely move. They take critical comments veery badly too. I saw them basically admit their apt was a fire risk at one point when they were trying to hide it befroe an inspection. They freak out if anyone comments about their constant buying tho.
Chris does this thing with people he's filming or with Pete on the podcast where they'll say something kind of random or weirdly-phrased, and Chris will repeat it back immediately with his sort of mocking/scornful/cynical voice thing to get a laugh. He does this with everyone, it's his schtick. So of course with Natsuki and Ryotaro it works very well since they flub English words and phrases all the time - it's Chris's whole bread and butter and the core value of his "humor" - it's incredibly tiresome/predictable once you pick up on it. He gets way too much mileage out of it.
It also seems to be the basis for his frienship with Natsuki - just an endless loop of Chris waiting for an opportunity to strike. It's like he's milking Natsuki for catchphrases. Blech
Nta but I remember some moments where nancy was getting the husband to stick up for her when she got a few negative comments and there was some milk but that's a while back. I suspect she has some undiagnosed mood thing going on and that's why the hubby has been a saint through some of her episodes. She's freaked out on a few livestreams that I've seen.
I almost posted them here at the time. I stopped because she puts the kids in front on the camera more than herself (well it varies) and tbh I saw people sepculating about whether or not their youngest kid has autism or whether she's just a brat 'a mini-me of her bossy mother' and I decided not to post. She already loses her shit over 3 bad comments under a video.

Yes this is correct, he's like their pet, it's disgusting, they exploit him.
When Chris pushed him into the waterfall and laughed at him and he lost his pants is when I realized what a douche Chris is. They surely planned it in advance, fine, but it still shows Chris character and relationship to Natsuki.
Also ppl asking why the hate for Chris - he used to be somewhat funny and chill but in this last series he basically set up all these challenges for his "friends" to do while he sat it out and mocked them - fishing, going in caves or whatever the fuck, he quit horseback riding because he was afraid of the "mean" horsie…. chris sucks

Did Chris Broad and John Daub have drama not so long ago? In the comment section of this reddit post, Chris has deleted his comment but judging from the texts of the other user, Chris said something mean stuff about John in his livestream video around a timestamp that is now edited out.

What happened lol?

I doubt she's pregnant.
That is probably the most unlikely reason ever. She is decorating the house and Chris is decorating the "studio". They probably need to sort out how they film and reveal everything so they don't leave breadcrumbs (but they will). Chris has fallen behind on his filming schedule as we speak. His montly roadtrip collab with Connor is already late by a week or two. He's doing that atm. Sharla is probably waiting for him to come back home.
Also sage your shitpost next time.
his american friend pete is cute tho (not the uk pete, the american pete who lives in japan)

It’s intresting to see who has liked and who has not like Natasha’s post. Wynn, Natasha girlfriend has been very vocal and supportive. Although Emma and Shiori have been silent they sure seem to be supportive of Natasha behind the scenes. Sharla is good friends with Sunny so I am sure she is torn. Kim Dao had a falling out with sunny and the timing seems to align with the time she started dating Chris O. The exposing tea keeps dropping on IG
i agree, they 100% have something going on behind the scenes. their mannerisms with each other since going to kyoto in january (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laOC4oxZ5IE
) have been increasingly intimate, this is not just "friend behavior". Sarah was featured in a twitch stream from recently where Emma has borrowed Sarah's shirt and also tells viewers that she keeps a tea and milk that Sarah enjoys at her apartment. It seems that Sarah has probably spent the night, is spending many nights, etc. This is gf behavior to me?
additionally, re:kyoto- from 12:09-12:16, there is a small mark on the front of emma's throat that was not visible in the beginning of the video (where she is wearing the same mockneck shirt). i personally think it was a small love bite but i know some people may feel this is a stretch.
I’m sure she mentioned something about her mother-in-law too. I didn’t watch much of her Korea stuff but I’m sure I remember pull having a fit about her saying something about her mil disapproving of something and she didn’t care.
Anyone remember that?
In the vid about moving to Sendai, she said that she has only been there a handful of times.
So which one is it Sharla?
nobody had to "spill the beans" since you'd have to be blind or on the spectrum to not pick up on it for the last 2 years
I swear to god you are all the same person.
Speculate all you want, samefag the same questions, but if you’re going to do that please provide actual evidence!
This thread is just samefag circlejerking of Sharla and Chris, it’s cringeworthy.

They were both in Tottori together, a remote place that you wouldn’t just so happen to be at. Also Chris had a room that slept two in his sleeper train, but didn’t say why he chose that room instead of a cheaper or nicer single. They’re not publicly out dating but they really all but are screaming it from rooftops, anon. What’s this strange skin colored thing reflecting in the mirror next to Chris in that Tottori video? Personally i think they make a nice couple and if they want to be private about it fine, but I do think its pretty obvious they’re dating.
The evidence is all over the place. I suggest you lurk in the previous thread, you will find all kinds of milk plus receipts there.>>168094
This was also already discussed in the previous thread. So nothing new.

Interesting post from the king of mango YouTube comments about some jvloggers buying viewers
i don't understand how someone "buys viewers"
do you mean they have bot subs or do you mean they're paying for bot clicks/views? this doesn't really make much sense. if the view counts per new sub was lower then that would mean they're using bot subs. but as far as i know, this doesn't last long like it used to. anyway - who cares

The many excuse of Sharla for not filming a video for over a month. 2 weeks days ago she said she “working on one” than it was health issues, than a today again she said she just filmed one, just need to edit … but wait I thought 2 weeks ago you were working on one already?
So? you think she's happy with some of her plans not becoming true? It's not like everything in life is carved in stone. Now that she's dating Chris there's also partner with whom you make decisions about leaving Japan etc. >>168011
Why are there so many tin foil hatter here? Nobody "spill the beans" and took revenge. They just got sloppy which is waiting to happen after hiding something for approx. 2 years.
Well they do get sponsorships based on their subscribers and sponsorships means $$$. But I'm not really shocked I mean it's how most influencers that initially no one knows grow they following on instagram.
Th question is if sponsors care that it's not real people watching their ad.
They commented this:"I found out something about her and decided to share it"
Seems like someone told them about Sharla and Chris, so they don't actually have any proof.

Sunny apparently lied about his stepdads passing being the reason she didn't post. She allegedly said her stepdad had passed away August 9th, but then uploaded on Tiktok the very next day. Her comment section is ripping her a new one, even though they were deleting the comments that didn't do them a favour. I guess it was a failed sympathy attempt.>>168338
I think Sharla might have deleted her comment after she realised shit was going south and now more people were coming out about Chris Okano. There is another anonymous insider who is spilling the beans atm.

Man almost 1million views and a huge dislike ratio. I think her fans are more upset Chris and Sunny called the Indonesian base poor and stupid vs the art theft though. Really hope neither of them recover from this.
Btw I just realized, Chris is the reason why Kim Dao and her irrelevant roommate to get kicked from Japan LOL no more visas
A lot of people lost their visas because of Chris O's stunt. I believe Sharla was also going through an uncertain visa period because she was employed at TC as well. May this year she got her 3 year visa.
Sunny and Chris also faked the whole fasting during Ramadan thing (they were caught drinking somewhere else), and that with a massive Muslim audience. Chris Okano mentions stuff is being taken out of context, but I don't think anyone believes him.
Emma's twitch stream has used a welcome screen made by Natasha for years. After Natasha posted this Emma has replaced it with a new one she made herself. The timing just seem odd.
Natasha was also posting in Emma's twitch chat a few days ago and Emma seemed more awkward than normal, but I mean that's Emma.
what kind of visa was TC getting for these people anyway? as far is i understood, they don't/didn't sponsor work visas.
it's highly possible that these people who "lost" their visas were on working holiday visas in the first place and never figured out the next step. i don't see TC as a large enough company to be able to participte in employer-sponosred visa program in Japan. not to mention, do you know how complicated the process is for even a large company to fulfill the requirements to sponsor visas? i can't see TC getting their shit together enough to jump through all those hoops for nobody youtubers with barely any followings.
and then also, none of those people are famous or important enough to have been granted a entertainer/cultural visa, so that's out too.
maybe i'm wrong but i've read mulitple places that TC never sponsored work visas for youtubers
Here's an article proving that you can get "influencer" visa and the Japan govt was at one point increasing these. (This is how Trash Taste got their visas). https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2020/02/03/general/geexplus-brings-anime-youtubers-japan/
HOWEVER unless someone who actually works for/with TC posts here with evidence, I also don't think TC was established enough to be securing visas.
i wonder how much content creators have to pay TC for their visas - what percentage of their youtube ad revenue, sponsorhip revenue, and i wonder what the contract actually looks like in terms of how many videos they're obligated to make under the TC channel umbrella.
i doubt it's cheap
It’s probably the other way around, they work for super low rates in exchange for the possibility of a work visa
I think it was posted in the older threads, but an old employee said the company was deep into the red. Probably from expenses and expenditures of flying/sending all the youtubers on vacations to record content.
what do you mean "work for really low rates" ?
do you not understand how youtube works
"the other way around" WTF? How is what you said "the other way around" from the anon's post? They literally said the creators are taking a loss on their revenue because TC likely gets a percentage. The other anon said "do you not understand how youtube works?" lol and yeah you clearly don't.
Like do you think TC pays creators a salary kek?
Okay you guys got to stop being this retarded.>>168503
When you get hired for a job, you get paid. Unless it was salaried(which they're obviously not), even as talent, they were probably being paid on a hourly rate
. The amount these youtubers were paid for their jobs, was probably low because of the promise of a visa on the table. Also Chris Okano is scummy, and probably asked them to take a lower "friend discount" for their work.>>168515
anon from >>168432
implies they allowed TC to take income from their personal channels, which makes no fucking sense.
>how much content creators have to pay TC for their visas
Why the fuck would the youtubers pay THE COMPANY. The most likely scenario is they were given a low one-time payment or hourly rate for their work.
Are you special needs?
Tokyo Creative is an AGENCY
They REPRESENT creators not the other way around omfg
this sounds right. thought they would be taking some cut of the opportunities they negotiate for their "influencers" - i would imagine they do pay either per-video or on a contractual basis, some kind of salary to the following only:
- chris (mabye)
but that's it
tokyo creative is literally a "digital and social media marketing agency" (their words)
do you sniff glue
chris getting a studio has nothing to do with sharla, he just felt small peen from watching the trash taste bois move into a new studio and got jealous
sharla will probably also use it tho. he also said that after he signed a 5 year lease he then discovered there's a parking garage within earshot with one of those alert buzzers that you can hear with the windows closed so he's pissed because of audio kek
now he said he has to get a whole new set of interior windows installed and hope that blocks the sound…
idk how you don't figure that out BEFORE you get a studio when your goal is to make audio and video

So smoll indeed Chris uses Joey's 3 million subs twitter post for his own promotion with "Dr Jelly would have been proud mate". Chris uses everything on the internet for his personal brand and competes with everyone. The guy is a walking billboard for his channel. Must be fun.
Also for everyone here who still thinks Sharla and Chris are not dating, go compare her twitter comment on the post where Chris announces the studio. Every other regular friend of his says "congratulations" to that post like real "friends" do, Sharla just jokes about hats since she practically owns the studio with him. It's in the little things
norms such a jealous bitch, goes all the way to sharlas just to get dragged along shopping and to assemble a cat cage for her and his only reward is a few seconds of screen time in a shitty low effort vlog vid.
Even managed to sleeze his way into a Peter McKinnon video and scored hardly any new subs out of it.
Here's why, your creepy as fuck fake personality turns people away and you don't have the balls to be yourself because that personality is trash and also drives people away. Should have stuck to your english monkey job instead of a career where being personable dictates your success.

This one? Idk if he shooped it or it's just the angle but his proportions are strange
I really don’t want to hi cow but Jesus Christ can you not make yourself any more obvious?
You don’t sage your posts that’s how I can tell you’re all the same person.
There has been literally 0 proof! Saying I know they are together and making assumptions is not proof. That one pic someone posted of the mug that they both happen to have (I mean they are friends and they work together, heaven forbid) is also not proof!
That picture frame thing that supposedly happened is also not proof because it can’t be backed up.
I’m not mad because I don’t want them to be together I’m mad cause I want you to physically post actual evidence to back up your claims, and stop bumping the thread with ‘oh Chris got a studio, this is more proof they are together’.
That’s why I believe you are a vendetta chan or norm.
He literally just posted a video today and HE IS WEARING THE SHIRT
god it must smell horrid

You do know Sharla and Chris work together? They are allowed to travel/work together without it meaning more than just that? You are obsessed! >>168943
Seconded, this is so cringe.
Vendetta/norm/lily/newfag from GG or CC or whoever you are, please give up. You’re embarrassing yourself.
i'm not the one calling everyone Karens, but just to point something out about the sleeping arrangements:
Yes of course Chris and Sharla "work together" but if it was a work trip then why would Natsuki have his own room while Sharla and Chris shared a room? If it was a work trip, Sharla would have her own room and Chris and Natsuki would share a room (ESPECIALLY) if it was at a ryokan, just like it always was in the old days before they started dating.
Think about it for like half a second.
Also, if it was a work trip and not a girlfriend tagging along, she would have been in the videos and she would have 100% made her own video about it. they were definitely up to something, trying to hide that she was there.
But yeah I'm sure that's what people who only "work together" act like

Micaela's story confirming her marriage. It's cute, I'm happy for her.
Lol I’m not Sharla, and you’re retarded if you think she’d post here. I’m one of the few people that’s getting annoyed with you newfags who keep posting cringe about them being together, try again.>>168947
Like I said, it’s not that I don’t want to believe you, but it is all speculation.. you don’t actually know anything!
Was Sharla even with them? Maybe Sharla has her own room? Maybe Chris does have a girlfriend which he keeps off camera? Maybe he wants a room with 2 beds just because that’s what they had available at the time? Those are all plausible too!
it was a ryokan dear, they put out the bedding for you every night and don't put out the bedding for two people if just one is staying in a room.
maybe he has another girlfriend - that could absolutely be true.
but then his girlfriend Sharla would probably get jealous.

Yeah she was with them.
between the two of them, joey and aki have nearly 6 million subs plus joey probably gets a third of trash tastes money and theyve got over 1 mil now.
so yeah joey and aki are probably pulling in somehwere around 50-75k a month between the two of them with ads and sponsorships
what's super funny is that whoever pointed that out about his shirt - that was before the video came out yesterday which was filmed back in september… and he was wearing that shirt ROFL
same shirt as in the studio pic taken the other day ago

I know right it’s crazy amont if money
Think a second before you accuse everyone of being "Lily/Norm/Chris's demons" when you hit that post button anon. Having a serious opinion about someone's shitty ethics is not only done just by exes or jealous colleagues. Sorry to dissappoint people here with the reality these influencers live in.
Also SAGE people, it's not that hard.
I understood your post, I agree they make a lot of money and you may celebrate that. I was actually agreeing with anon who posted >how they pretend they're not making nearly as much money as they do. Especially Connor.
My problem with Chris and that particular livestream is his lie. He was most definately not alone, yet he made it look like he was. I watched that livestream, people were giving him money in the form of superchats because they like him but also because he was "alone" on his BIRTHDAY during CORONA stuck in JAPAN. That was not true, he was not alone and I found it pretty unethical he created that impression. He might not need that money compared to his income from ads/patreon, but THAT video is still wrong.
Well you are making huge assumptions about why people gave him superchats. Unless you took a poll to see if they only gave Chris money because he was alone on his bday, you have no way of knowing that. In any regards on his other live streams that followed that bday stream, with people and without people joining him, many viewers donated a sh*t tone of superchats. People donate for a variety of reasons, but mostly 1) because the like/ appreciate the creator and 2) because they want their comments to be noticed.
While we are that topic of superchats a person that I have an issue with is only in Japan- his live streams certainly feels like a fundreaiser, but than again no one is twisting his viewers arms lol
He seems a bit more down to earth for someone who, on paper, earns about ~400k.
Hopefully he'll exploit his niche gracefully with the other two dudes from TT.
There is a 3rd reason to add to your list: because some of the people actually did feel bad for him for being alone on his birthday. At the time I know I did, and I can't imagine I was the only viewer who thought so. In fact there were many who expressed it in the chat. I don't care if Chris produces good content, has a myriad of reasons to be given money to. My only problem is simply that false title, that false impression he created. Even if it means "just" 1 or 2 people felt bad for him and donated while the majority had different reasons to donate money. That's still 1 too many. Saying "Here have one beer from me tonight" and donating money, hoping he's a little happier because he was otherwise so lonely… Yeah nah, facilitating that is just wrong.
I don't watch Only in Japan's streams enough, but that's also shitty if true. What you feel about OIJ's stream, I feel that about this particular birthday stream Chris had.
I respect your opinion and how your feel. But also you have to consider the intent, the personality and pass behavior if the person making that title. Have Chris even given the I am here for the cash grab behavior that some YouTubers does? No, in fact the opposite, he hardly if ever does sponsorships, turns down a bunch of offers, spread out his videos and not just post for views and $, but quality. Hardly does live streams and has the cheapest Patreon. I am comfortable in saying that his intent was to have a catchy title to get many viewers, and not to garner sypamthy and gain more donations. Also, the “have a beer in me type comments” is par for the course for superchats. If you watch any live stream or twitch live stream- the have a beer/coffee/lunch/dinner on me is like on every donations comments. It’s like a line these people use. I ince donated to quinlan from go north Japan because he mentioned he was going hiking and needs bear spray .. and I wrote (bear spray on me) lol. PS He is the only one I have donated to because he was struggling financially, and seem like a genuine nice guy, the rest I would never.

I wish I could get this excited about candy scented toilet paper. Man, Japan is really a consumerist's dream place, isn't it?
Yeah it's pretty bad. They have a product wrapped in single-use plastic packaging for litterally everything.
That plushie tho. 25k yen for a yoga mat/cat bed
Here’s the thing.. they don’t live together. They only do in your head.
What even is this thread now?
I've been thinking about this because there's so many convoluted ideas going around. They lived together in Morioka, they lived together in Sendai, they're dating since 2018, they're dating since 2020… whatever. Who CARES. But: I have thought about it and I have a theory.
I don't think it's a coincidence that Chris announces new studio in Sendai and Sharla announces moving to Sendai and these things are happening at the exact same time. Here's their plan: "Sharla" gets a huge new apartment - if you remember, she showed it off - it's HUGE. Way too big for one person. Chris obviously has moved out of his shit-hole (that he used to go on and on about how much he hated it, but we haven't heard much lately on this topic - this is podcast lore mostly) and into the large spacious "Sharla" apartment in Sendai, with her. This coincides with Chris's rental of the very large studio, where he will do his videos from FROM NOW ON to avoid any possible cross-contamination of domicile-based filming.
It's actually a genius plan. Sharla can film at "Sharla's" apartment, and sometimes use "Chris's" studio, but I guarantee you we will never see another video or live stream from what we came to recognize as "Chris's" apartment, ever again.
Chris will never mention having moved his domicile, because now he will just be focused on the studio and all his videos will be made there.
I'm actually pretty impressed with how seamlessly they pulled it off.
and, p.s. the magical elf man real estate dude they both made videos with, alex, is the one who helped concoct this plan, and helped work out all the paperwork and deals to make it happen. you think it's easy to pull off a real estate musical chairs like they just did, for gaijin? no, take my word for it, it is not. alex greased all the right wheels.
again, i'm super impressed with them. >>169296
i agree with you anon
i don't get it either, but there you have it. it's kind of like when you tell a lie as a little kid and it would be easy to admit you lied early on but the more the lie grows and people know about it, the more you have to work to keep it going
The weird thing about it all is hiding relationships is cheater behavior. I doubt anyone (else) is attracted to either of them but Youtubers generally do have a history of extra-curricular activity with followers and each other, and keeping their relationship secret certainly makes that a lot smoother if cheating were to happen. They could even fuck other people in their separate rented studio/flat when the other one is away. There's a reason why relationships are normally public and it's exactly for this reason. Not saying this is happening at all, inb4 where's the evidence
, but it certainly could with this setup.
I don't think Sharla thinks it won't work, she made the move (again) for him and is currently missing out on the couples video stuff while her other youtube besties all have partner and an open life.
It's Chris's ultra next level control freak type of insecurity here. This guy = his brand, nothing else.
Truth. Also it's not that elaborate. As to why? They share much more information about themselves than they are truly comfortable with as it is. No need to put more information out there.
I for one completely understand the need for privacy. No one wants a bunch of freaks knocking on your door, or have an imageboard speculating on who you are dating, if you were in the same place at a specific time, etc.

There is one comment.
Officially, Japan does have dual citizenship until 22 years old for those with a Japanese parent and there's also a loophole that allows dual citizens who obtained their other citizenship by birth/blood to keep their Japanese citizenship even after they turn 22 if the other country allows dual citizenship, so many hafu continue to keep their Japanese citizenship even if they don't or never live in Japan.>>168294
Daniel is half-Malaysian/Chinese, not Japanese, and was only in Japan on a work then marriage visa and I think not there long enough to apply for permanent residency.
Did Sharla start dating her ex husband when she was already in her kpop phase or did she get into kpop after meeting her ex-husband? Always wondered if k-idols/makeup is what attracted her to her husband or if that was just a coincidence.
Sam's friend Oriental Pearl's white-girl-shocks-Asians act was already grating but exploiting children is sad.
that's a strange loophole? so if you are born in Japan, but one of your parents is american you can keep the dual citizenship. but not if you are born outside japan?
Yes that oriental Pearl girl is gross.
From Japanese Ministry of Justice:
"A person who possesses Japanese and a foreign nationality (a person of dual nationality) shall choose one nationality before he or she reaches twenty two years of age (or within two years after the day when he or she acquired the second nationality if he or she acquired such nationality after the day when he or she reached twenty years of age). If he or she fails to choose his or her nationalities, he or she may lose Japanese nationality."https://www.moj.go.jp/ENGLISH/information/tcon-01.html

Any video that's about paolo or his wife sucks. He's just really awkward and cringy a lot of the time so it's hard to watch a video that's 100% about himself. The house/apartment hunting series he made was a huge clusterfuck since it showed how bitchy and selfish his wife is and how he has 0 balls left. They needed a new place asap because of the baby coming but his wife Maiko kept turning them down because they were too "far" away from the station. She wanted it to be no more than a 5 minute walk from the station and did not budge at all even when they found a place that suited all their needs except it was 8 minutes from the station so she rejected it lol.
Yes but its one of those things that only matters once it matters. Legally speaking. As long as nothing becomes complicated about your life situation and you stay out of legal trouble, sure, people gonna look the other way. But you're on borrowed time.
Like… you can get away without having health insurance when you're young and healthy, but you're on borrowed time. The day you get by a bus, it all comes crumbling down.
??? I literally don't understand, they're damned if they do, damned if they don't. They aren't Japanese idols held to a "no dating" image standard.
Anyone constantly bringing them up seems like a super fan of either of them, and are upset they aren't dating THEM.
wasn't there a time when Paolo was asking for donations/amazon wish list stuff for the baby? lmao
picky fucker moved into some expensive shibuya apartment and has the nerve to ask his low-mid income fanbase to 'help' him
don’t understand why people care about two ugly middle aged gaijins fucking, to this extent. Does that help?
The Japanese gov has never forced a dual national who obtained foreign citizenship through a parent to relinquish their Japanese citizenship. This is why many adult half-Japanese still maintain multiple nationalities and having dual nationality is very beneficial when it comes to business, work and family since you don't need to worry about visas. Taxes can be an issue if you're American and make over a certain amount.
"In April, the Justice Ministry confirmed to The Japan Times that the justice minister had never issued a warning to a dual citizen by birth to decide upon one nationality, meaning that no such dual national has ever been stripped of their Japanese citizenship under Article 15 of the Nationality Act." https://www.citinavi.net/single-post/japan-what-does-japan-s-nationality-act-really-mean-for-its-dual-citizenshttps://features.japantimes.co.jp/dualcitizenship/
Paolo does best when he stays behind the camera and leaves his personal life out of his videos. Same with Only in Japan. They're just hurting themselves.
I have just found out that there is a PULL discord (it’s still going apparently) and in the Sharla thread there this is all they talk about.
It makes perfect sense why they’re so obsessed - they’re pullfags.

You retards are focusing on her age but my point still stands, literally why should I give a fuck these two are fucking and why are you retards pushing this as hot milk?(stop)
For almost a month, every other day, some retard bumps this thread. I hope it’s new drama concerning the jvloggers, but it’s the same cunt sperging over their huge cocklust for Chris.
I have never seen someone try to push an agenda like this so fucking hard. You guys haven’t seen the failed new Chris/sharla threads they try to push that get deleted by mods. LC isn’t a personal army, I don’t understand why they’re trying to bandwagon everyone to their narrative. Even if it is true they’re dating, this person is trying to weaponize us and that shit isn’t Kawaii.
There isn’t any, hence our disdain over the continued pushing of a relationship between 2 irrelevant people. They aren’t even ‘ex j-vloggers’ as they still live and vlog in Japan.>>169789
Well.. thats why we’re complaining. I am in no way against having a thread but as anon said above previous threads were locked, and you can’t deny some retard is bumping the thread with the same shit over and over.
Maybe OP should have made a thread about Chris or TC in general, but I have a feeling that would have been locked due to the fact that it isn’t even worth having a thread about.. which again backs up my whinging.
(Ex-)Jvloggers, so anyone who still is or has been a Jvlogger, READ.
Furthermore those who have a thread (like Aki and Taylor) don't go here.
Please stop whining. This bickering only contributed to more non-milk posts.>>169611
What go-pro disaster? This guy is a weird one. He speaks his mind, but comes across so rude. Him chatting to those poor petrol station staff makes me cringe. You can tell they are intimidated and annoyed.
Connor and the trash taste guys live in Japan and vlog, by definition a jvlogger
Aki has her own thread and most people just discuss how she’s fat, feel free to take it there
Honestly he might be, he doesn't really air too much of his real life out. Maybe he'll be more open about it now that he streams live on Twitch.
I think it was mentioned on trash taste that he had a gf before youtube blew up but they broke up. People are shipping connor and ironmouse together since connor called her cute. I don't think ironmouse is interested though since she's constantly sick and just gave birth.
Good for him, a bit weird how obstinate people are about this subject.>>169983
Indeed but at a first glance he doesn't look like someone who is heavy into fujo baiting or that he had the foresight to manipulate them, if he did, my applause.
My grandmother had a baby who was my first aunt and she had the same including a hole in the heart. She died a week later in the 70s. Very sad, so common too.
Especially since it’s her first child. Incredibly same. There for a moment and then gone.(learn2sage)

I'm suspicious of the JVlogger "her.atlas"
I'm generally suspicious of people who suddenly appear on youtube out of nowhere and immediately have 24k views on their very first video. She claims to work in Japan but isn't a JET or english teacher. Something is fishy about this one.
she posted her first video in jan of 2020 and it got 24k views. that doesn't just happen. she appeared out of nowhere with maximum editing, shooting, and cross-platform promotion. no learning curve. she says she has a job and a husband in japan but never talks details.
sorry but something doesn't check out here.
I agree. Someone here said she had an established audience prior to moving to Japan, but definitely not the same numbers she's showing now- and that article purported her to be a wellness influencer in SD. Obviously she is no longer a wellness influencer, but attempting to be a J-vlogger/influencer, so much of that initial following probably has dropped off by now. Her numbers are currently: 145 K subs on YT, and 215 k followers but she can't crack above an average of 27k views unless its standard clickbait stuff like "HAUL", "HANAMI", "24 HOURS IN.."
Her sub numbers to viewership conversion doesn't really add up to me- I think she's buying subs on her socials, personally.
If you want to compare her subs to viewership conversion to another J-vlogger, I'd reccomend looking at Emma's sub numbers vs conversion rate or even Jenn's sub numbers vs conversion rate- both are longtime j-vloggers with viewership that climbed steadily and slowly, who still manage to get those viewers to tune in. Her.Atlas sprung to 145 k subs in less than a year and has already spun out on getting views on her average uploads? I agree, kind of bizarre imo. But probably not milky.
Emma and some other the other jvloggers are all in the same circle and collab etc. Emma had a huge viral video pushed by Ashton Kutcher and Pewdie Pie. Emma and others like her usually reside in Tokyo and that tends to get more clicks. Her atlas lives in South country side Japan. She caters to a different demographic. Most people who move to or who are Intested in Japan do not fit her demographics. Most people who are obssed with japan, anime, are looking for sh8tty appartment, sh8tty teaching job, make next to no money and are obsessed with Japanese pu*y. She offers none of that weeb crap. She is clearly well off, not working a sh
tty job, is well travelled and well rounded.
you know nothing about youtube and are being retarded about it
average 27k views on her videos with 145k subscribers, that's about an 18% interaction rate.
Whereas pewdiepie has an average of 2m views for his 100 million subs, making an interaction rate of 1.8%. Are you saying PEWDIEPIE is buying subs?
Fucking drink some milk, maybe you'll get retain some IQ
lol ok so I have been watching her for over a year and I was also baffled and did lots of digging back in the day. i'm pretty sure most of the evidence is long deleted at this point as she's curating a very "family friendly perfectly happy all the time" image, which i think is working because she's booking actual TV gigs in japan now
anyway, her youtube channel is several years old and she started vlogging in san diego in 2018, mostly doing fitness/diet content. she got married to a marine, joined tiktok, and moved to japan. tiktok is where she initially blew up, recording some of her moving process in 2019. her content used to be a lot less cozy/aspirational and she would bitch about japan a lot tbh lol. eventually she started that one trend (or at least made it viral), "8 things in my house that Just Make Sense" and that's when her content started growing legs.
her husband is basically middle-management on base in iwakuni. they aren't making huge money, probably because they had to pay extra for a house that would allow their dog.
anyway the TLDR: she's the wife of a marine and had been trying to start an online presence for years and a combination of japan + tiktok let her find SOME success. she's deleted her older youtube videos that had fewer views, so it's not as fishy as it seems.
well that's actually really interesting and speaks to how people subtractively adjust their personas. She seems to put out this characterization of herself that she's this self-made businesswoman in Japan just a workin girl. But in reality she has a visa because of her Marine husband and she's wiped all the evidence of her origin lore.

Thank you for confirming the tea Chris
I agree, I actually like her atlas quite a lot. I followed all her tiktoks during the pandemic tik tok craze and I also like her energy levels, she’s making the most of having moved to Japan while being a normal not obsessed person.
If I’m not mistaken she used to blog about her life in the US but she said she never had many followers.
She was crazy successful on tik tok and now she’s been filming things for tourism in Japan. She used to teach but from what I remember she was part time in some sort of high school maybe, doing like orientation.. but she left it to be a full time creator. I think she taught just cause she had nothing else to do and no money needs.
Part of her success is I think her audience was not originally Japan-obsessed people, it was random viewers who found it “exotic” and started following her.
wtf was that anon's post?
Do they have a stalker?

Does not add up.
Honestly feels like she uses her disability as a convenient excuse. She made it sound so horrible when they lived there, how tf will she function on her own this time? There is literally no way… In their videos together they talked about how horrible her disease was there and she could not function without him….she gives off munchie vibes now to me. We will see though, apparently she can move back across the world magically with her debilitating disease and diseased cat.

I don’t know how it works getting a visa as someone with a physical disability, but it seems kind of reckless. What is she going to do once her illness advances and she has to move back to Canada again? Or maybe she’s not intending to come back?>>171455
He's crazy, but I don’t think Martina is the angel everyone else makes her out to be either. He was wrong to delete it, but it is a needlessly salty comment.
The fanbase despises Simon because he vacationed in Hawaii during the pandemic, but nobody seems to be saying shit about Martina thinking she's going to move to Japan during a pandemic. Granted maybe she doesn't mean anytime soon, but tbh, this pandemic doesn't seem like it's ending anytime this year so talking about moving to another country period seems irresponsible IF you care about that.
I agree Martina isn't as sweet as she seems. She's written a lot of mean, bitter comments about Simon and so has he. They both have had their cutiepie loveydovey masks removed and exposed themselves as weirdos. And quite frankly I always thought Martina seemed a little munchie but I chalked it up to not knowing much about EDS. At the very least I think she plays up her frailty a bit so her audience thinks she's such a strong girlboss for overcoming a painful hip.
- they're both emotionally stunted nastos. I hate men as much as the next farmer, but Martina has her own grossness that's showing up.
Building off on this, I think he talked it about on trash taste recently, Connor said he gets really upset when people gaybait for views
He’s either very hypocritical or actually bi(?)
meh the fanbase's hate for simon is little more than that. He's just a rude condescending asshole now every time he comments in ig. Since martina handled social media on her own when they were married, people are now wondering if simon was always like this or his midlife rich white guru identity crisis has something to do with it. Plus martina has hinted he has narcissistic personality disorder and stated 'he was not a wonderful husband' or w/e, some are questioning if there may have been abuse, and his gaslighting has became apparent whenever he does his mental gymnastics reasoning for something (like sneaking into martina's discord).
what a bizarre mess its became lol
He sneaked into her discord? When was this? Was he looking for ammunition or just forcing his presence on her?
I liked their videos (but not them, really, they’re no Eric and Kyde) but he looks like he’s gone completely off the rails here, freaky eyes and expression.
Yea he snuck in lol, I guess he doesn't know much about discord, because your name pops when you enter a server so martina's discord admin caught him and kicked him out and posted the screenshot on the subreddit. He got asked about it on instagram and attempted a mental gymnastics explanation that he was looking for something and accidentally clicked martina's server. Of course no one believes him because you can't 'accidentally' enter a server. So that's why some are calling him abusive
, he's trying to keep tabs on her or have some sort of menacing control over martina.
Martina also posted on her own ig that Simon keeps a list of banned words on their shared ig like hawaii, travel, reddit, delete, block, etc. She said she clears it (along with the blocked people list) when she logs in, but of course he just goes back and reupdates the ban list. I don't know what the fuck simon is trying to do, but he just need to quick social media and work an offline job with his mistress lol no one is on his side, his podcast isn't going anywhere, and he just keeps making his situation worse
True, but I'm sure Ryotaro doesn't mind that, it gives him free exposure, and he likes to act on it as well.
I never understood why he turned Natsuki in the clown he is today. The trick has become old, nowadays it makes me cringe everytime he forces Natsuki into saying something broken.
Chris is an asshole. He treats the people around him like shit. I really think he's got some kind of arrested development complex where he's locked in immaturity. He just doesn't seem like a man to me. He seems more like an overgrown boy. He has to turn everyone around him into a "character" like "Natsuki the clown" or "Ryotaro the villian" or "Pete the bizarre Japanophile" because he's so immature he can't just accept people for who they are and conduct himself like an adult relatinship.
The anon that pointed out how much more natural and pleasant Sharla and Natsuki were talking in Japanese about the cicadas was totally right - she can at least treat people like people and not characters in some fictional universe for views.
>Chris is a walking billboard for his channel. >Chris lives in a fictional universe for the views.
Out of all of the Japan content creators on YT, nobody is more of a brand persona than Chris.
Also:>Chris owns 1 black shirt.
I think it's more that Chris and Natsuki mostly use English and Chris is self-conscious about his Japanese because it isn't so great considering how long he's lived in Japan tho still much better than some of the jvloggers who speak almost no Japanese. Explains why Natsuki's English continues to improve…>>172036
Sharla's Japanese with Natsuki is actually kind of rude, but probably not intentional, more out of ignorance and inexperience talking with grownups maybe, which is weird and surprising because she went to university in Japan and works as a translator.
lmao is this a selfpost? tkyosam has been an awful meme for years. nonnie
do you actually trudge through this fat man's incoherent 8 hour livestream rants and think that's good
please be a troll lol
based tkyosam selfposting to rake in the views, he's a meme but I kinda agree with >>172120
and I do empathize a bit with the whole adhd thing
t. not tkyosam
As far as Paolo is concerned. I am fascinated about his views. People are not interested in him, because he puts up a fake happy teethy go lucky persona, his audience don’t seem to connect with him. I say that because, whenever he post any video about himself, his family etc the views drops significantly. The videos that do extremely well are the “days in the life of a Japanese ___”. So paolo is not the draw, yes his wife does an good job with the edits, and the series is well done and popular. But his viewers are no loyal. Chris viewers are very loyal to him, he consistently gets very high views, no matter the subject. And most of all, the nerve of that Sam guy to put himself in Paiolo category, Paolo worst performing video number wise is Sam best. So crawl back to that sh8t box, you call home Sam.
I used to watch probably all of Paolo's videos before he and Maiko switched to full pregnancy/kira kira baby mode. Sorry dude I have no interest in babies or especially pregnancy and now most of the videos are about that… Day in the Life are really good even if he's like "Wow, so cool!" all the time, I can get past that for the interesting subject matter anyway. The old Top 10 videos used to be fun too just in a casual sort of, I'll put this on while I'm doing something else way. I don't do that with the family ones.
But I cannot watch any of the videos with the kid because I end up just being so embarrassed for that baby they literally named Wolverine. Like not only is that a weird name anywhere but it's unpronouncable in Japanese, even though his official certificate has it in katakana??? no
Who is Sunny, what apology? >spoonfeeding req
I’m sorry, my memory is shite, do you mean a different Chris than Broad?
Not going to spoonfeed, but here are the posts to read and catch up.
The apology video:>>168305
It's hard to explain because it's probably not something you'd learn in a Japanese class. Since they're friends, it's fine to use casual language but from the way she speaks, it's more like she's from above/older than Natsuki and her style of speech is really only appropriate if they were close friends of the same age or if she was his senpai. ～じゃね？～いいじゃん？っていう～？～だった～？ ありがとうね～ Natsuki speaks casually to her but at the same level, not as if he's above her.
Chris' Japanese is also kind of rude but I don't think he's ever taken Japanese language classes before and only taught English. Why Sharla speaks the way she does is a mystery since she's worked as an interpreter and was exposed to Japanese in the workplace but I don't think it's intentional.
This reads “I took Japanese 101 in college once”
Shut the fuck up and stop being a language fag, you’re nitpicking over the stupidest shit
I'm Japanese which is why I said it's probably not something you'd learn in Japanese class.>>172290
Just so we're clear, we're talking about じゃねぇ？which comes from じゃない？じゃないの？ but even more casual, not じゃあね bye. It's OK to use with your close friends and people your age, but Natsuki is older and not a close friend, just a friend. It doesn't mean Sharla has to use keigo with him and she can still speak casually, but notice how Natsuki speaks to her.
Imagine being Japanese and obsessively listening to conversations to find a gotcha moment, and all you can find is “Ja ne” lmao
Are you gonna enlighten us to how many hours you studied the blade and a special wind chime in your backyard?

I don't understand why Chris has to be so negative all the time. Ryotaro did nothing wrong.
Did she tell why she started crying?
I don't understand her, if it is Japan that makes her this unhappy, why not move away? To hell with a place that is popular on youtube, what good does it do if it makes you cry online? (Unless for sympathy points, but let's not assume that just yet)
when does she say じゃねぇ? she's saying jya nai during the parts i'm listening to. i can only imagine she would say じゃねぇ as part of a joke, since it's rarely used by women anyway. the rest of your examples seem normal. considering they've known each other for what, over five years? i don't think sharla and natsuki are just at a friend level, they're somewhere between friends and close friends where this kind of language doesn't seem inappropriate.
just so i don't come across wk-y, i don't think there aren't things sharla can work on with her japanese, but i doubt natsuki is feeling secretly offended by her using "datta"
Worst part is he makes fun of slapstick Japanese humour, he finds it low hanging fruit and easy. Meanwhile he contributes to only one form of overdone rude humour that people seem to mistake as British. His proper Brit humour was funny and novel at start and in appropriate dosage. Now he is just overdoing it. I watch a lot of British comedy, this is not it anymore.
The whole clownification of Natsuki discussed earlier is just disgusting.

Wonder what else Chris "cooks" in Sharla's "kitchen"
Relax. I didn’t make fun of anyone’s accent and all I said was that she's unintentionally "kind of rude" which is surprising given her background in Japanese. I was asked to explain and it’s hard to convey because it's not one thing and it’s not something you have in English, so I provided some examples to make it easier for people to understand. How Sharla and Chris talk in Japanese speaks to how much/little they interact with natives and use Japanese in their daily lives off camera, and gives us some idea into why they don’t use much Japanese and sound awkward when they do on camera. People here nitpick things they say in English allll the f-ing time. People before have pointed out how Sharla’s Japanese doesn’t match her life on paper and Sharla’s not a teenager or some fresh off the boat English teacher.>>172321
Eat it. Also, a lot of people have a koseki and have barely lived in Japan or speak Japanese.>>172366
You’re probably thinking of ～じゃねー, ～じゃねーか？ which is a different word.じゃね？ is a rougher version of じゃない？じゃないの？じゃないかな？だね、だよね which are already casual, but mainly a kanto thing that a lot of young people use right now among friends of the same age or below. The problem isn’t that Sharla uses casual language, but that she speaks from above Natsuki while speaking casually, while Natsuki speaks to her as if they’re the same. If you’re skeptical, just ask your Japanese friends if they would ever say ありがとね (not ありがとう), ～じゃね？ and ～じゃん to an adult
friend who’s older than them and have them explain to you what the problem is.
Like I said, I doubt it’s intentional and I’m sure Natsuki just brushes it off as her being a foreigner, but it’s not about a few words or even language only, Sharla is a 30-something year old who’s gone to a Japanese university and lived in Japan for over a decade now. People are setting the bar really low by using Chris as some kind of standard and praising Sharla for speaking some Japanese on camera with Natsuki, when she’s showing how little she actually speaks to Japanese in real life and maybe even to Natsuki off camera. Look at how Kemushi speaks to and treats her Japanese friends in Japanese if you want to make a fair comparison. She's done the same translation/interpreter work, also studied at a Japanese university (grad school) but hasn't spent as much time in Japan as Sharla.
Now if you want an example of someone speaking Japanese at a native level but coming off as rude, watch theanimeman and his interview with a yakuza. He actually pisses off the yakuza.

Not really milk and maybe I’m late but has Sharla ever announced she’s not vegan anymore or anything? She used to make a big fuss about it but she ate some marshmallows recently without mentioning gelatin and ice cream from a stall that probably had dairy. I don’t care but I’m surprised if she’s just not doing it anymore but never mentioned it. You’d think she’d fake it for the camera still or say something. Picrel her last video, has a fried shrimp on the side.
career wise jvlogging is a trap. Take away the japan and all you're left with is a mediocre personality, mediocre filming and editing and the need to start from scratch for any other career.
A lot of expats leave japan for their home countries to raise their children so this puts jvloggers in a position of career or children. They do this because the japanese schooling system is horrid.
Thanks for explaining, I don't speak Japanese but get where you're coming from. I am bilingual and in my mother tongue this is a concept that exists. I think it's something a foreigner has a hard time getting right, even after years, especially if they don't use the language in a daily setting.>>172525>>172530
Nice comeback lol. At least that anon has some brain cells to write an essay, how much did you guys know about this again?
In the case of Emma (who is obviously mentally suffering) you're right. But Sharla is riding Chris's success in Japan. As long as they make those big stacks there, it would be unwise for her to leave. In their case they could save the money for whatever future plans they hold in Europe.
But Emma needs to think hard for herself if this is worth it all. Japan as fun as it seems, is a harsh environment for someone with a depression.
Are you replying to yourself? Or do you really think a whole essay
explaining what a two syllable word could possibly mean, is insightful? Sad either way lmao

Also she had chicken nuggets on her tray in that vegan Burger King video. The one that Chris reached over to steal. She is a convinient vegan
I really don’t understand your incessant nitpicking, you don’t like Chris and you think he’s overweight.. WE GET IT
I swear as soon as he makes a social media post one of you autists is quick to comment about his weight/appearance or that black shirt, or something far fetched about him and Sharla dating.
Take your crappy conversation elsewhere, this isn’t PULL
You think Chris is incapable of taking care of himself.. yet he still lives and breathes today for you to nitpick his social media posts.
You’ve commented on his weight before, you’re the spy anon or whoever from guru gossip.You write like English isn’t your first language which is why people thought you were lily.
Really, you think I’m Sharla? You think she would post here?
Think about what you are saying, she doesn’t pander to any gossip hence why you idiots keep sperging about stuff like ‘Chris eats meat so Sharla does too’
Get a grip
I’m not wking Chris, I’d actually understand the constant nitpicks about his appearance and personality if he was even remotely a cow.>>172778
Really? Can you prove it, cause if that’s true that’s actually worth talking about. I’m not Sharla though, every post accusing someone of being her (in the last couple of months) has been me posting.
No offence anon but that was like 8 years ago and at the height of the jvlogger phase. Miranda on the other hand is still a fully fledged snowflake, I wouldn’t say Sharla ever was.
The internet loves to hold people to account for things they have said years ago (rightfully and wrongly) so in my opinion I’m not gonna cancel her because she possibly ate a non vegan meal or because she wants to keep her love life private.
I literally don’t understand everyone’s beef with Chris either which is why I keep sperging about it. No one seems to criticise him or his videos, it’s all just he’s mean, fat, doesn’t know how to look after himself and owns one tshirt.
>>172832>>No one seems to criticise him or his videos, it’s all just he’s mean, fat, doesn’t know how to look after himself and owns one tshirt.
Actually no anon… personally I find his treatment/abuse of Japanese "friends" the othering/ clownfication and villainification of Natsuki, Ryotaro, deplorable. The terrible fashion and food choices are just annoyances but I think Chris Broad is problematic
for building his fame on mocking someone's inability to speak English and milking him for catchphrases.
Why don't you go support the dude on all his socials and even patreon - you're clearly a fan (or even lover, hell) - just don't bother trying to convince everyone here who doesn't like Chris's way of branding. Really as a fan maybe you shouldn't be here at all, unless you like to read milk about these jvloggers. Stop with the excessive defending already, it's really annoying to deal with this level of whiteknightery. No matter how much you polish a turd, it's still a piece of shit.>>172838
Pretty much this. He could have helped Natsuki grow in different ways, but he chooses to turn him into a clown. Giving him money doesn't make the act pretty.
Wtf how is it abuse? I don’t know why you’re interpreting banter that way! Natsuki and Ryotaro can just tell him to fuck off you know, they aren’t dependent on him.
I think the issue here is you
wouldn’t want Chris to talk to you like that, because you don’t like that humour. And that is fair enough, but that doesn’t mean you can keep spamming the thread with Chris is a big fat meany for the sake of it
typical media colonialist justification, standard for British empire. Go to foreign land, exploit the resources, abuse the locals, parade the locals/natives/subjects for your western audience, and profit.
Media neo-colonialism is still colonialism.
Kek and out of all the jvloggers you pick Chris to REEE about. >>172858
I think you’re right anon
>>172858>Tokyo lens is in here doing his behind the scene jealous hate campaign on Chris.
Funny how you're constantly defending yourself saying you're not Sharla or a Chris Knight for defending Chris's ass just because you have a different opinion, but meanwhile simultaneously accuse someone else of being Norm for having a different opinion as well. Smells like hypocrisy.
But anon, do tell, how do YOU know Natsuki is this desperate? Did you talk to him? Did he tell you this?
nta but hardly insider info, on ig lives Natsuki has asked a couple of times when this or that video will happen, and even Pete mentioned on a podcast that when he and Natsuki met some "fans" in Hokkaido Natsuki kept telling these people to go find and ask Chris when the 2nd movie was gonna happen. I wouldn't go so far as saying "begging" but he deffo seems to enjoy the filming too.
And yes i hate myself for remembering all this nonsense minutia.
Nope. Different person and I'm not Kemushi or a friend, and haven't said anything since >>172504
. Don't know why "y'all" are so sensitive about Sharla and Chris. Worse has been said about other jvloggers and others have been nitpicked to death before. >>172844
Built an entire brand for Ryotaro? Ryotaro has arranged and provided a lot of the travel and cultural content for Chris's videos and youtube is obviously not his main job. According to >>168595
, he also takes care of Chris' visa, so their business relationship is mutual at the very least. He's also fluent in English, familiar with British culture, so he and Chris can understand each other without any trouble, not the case with Natsuki.
File: 1632006467911.png (729.43 KB, 1059x716, natsuki.png)
Adding on, for all the boohoo stories for Natsuki, he's hired by TC too, but lets keep talking about how he is super poor and puts on acts just so Chris pays him. Dude isn't deperate.
He sure like acting like he's the victim
in this since it was highly likely Martina that dumped him.
Nope you dumb cunt all the Trash Taste visas come from GeeXPlus. Aki likely gets hers through TC
Chris Broad has had a media visa through Tohoku Tourism Board (Tohoku Tourism Promotion Org) which Ryotaro arranged, and he may or may not have gotten it renewed with TC, I can't say, they last 5 years so who knows.
File: 1632010220471.png (108.14 KB, 1232x560, Screen Shot 2021-09-18 at 4.59…)
Chris somehow got a working holiday visa when he ended his JET time, and after that, he would have had to have some kind of visa to stay working in Japan. Those last 6 mo, with potential 2 renewals, so 1.5 years at the most. He got his first one at end of 2015, so by mid 2017 at the very latest he would have had to have a media/influencer visa set up somehow. If you remember at this time he was doing a TON of Tohoku sponsored videos. Ryotaro was running a business that involved this toursim board and this is how they met. I think anon was right about Ryotaro helping secure his visa through them, as a means of promoting tourism to Tohoku. In 2017 TC wasn't really much of a thing (they didnt start on youtube till 2018). So it's doubtful they set up Chris with a visa.
1) Chris does not get his Visa via Tokyo Creative- he gets it through Tōhoku tourism board.
2) Chris does not get visa from Ryotaro- although he did help Chris get his working holiday visa.
3) Aki did get her Visa via Tokyo creative
4) Joey does not get his visa Tokyo creative, for he is no longer part of them.
5) joey gets his visa and is represented by Book walker.
6) chris per his own words in his Patreon - he is not under contract with Tokyo creative, but they do help him out with the couple of brand deals that he does, and he in turn will do a video here and there with them. But no contract.
6) Sharla is under contract with Tokyo creative
Anon where is anything you are saying to back any of this up? This is as bad as the anons in the Mikan thread arguing which visa she actually has.
All these people apparently don't have visas even though they all work for the same company. Make that make sense, retard. Why hasn't any anons posted this patreon post from Chris that exists, where does Joey ever say any of this? I just want to know where anons are getting these visa facts
when no one has posted anything about it besides saying we should take anons words for it.
File: 1632011497752.png (1.47 MB, 2650x1400, Screen Shot 2021-09-18 at 5.30…)
pretty sure Joey is reperesnted by GeeXPlus:
(though if he is a Japanese Citizen then he doesn't need a working visa lol)
you're talking 2021 dynamics
Chris built the "brand" on mocking Natuski's english circa 2015-2018
1) Chris said so his Patreon live stream - someone mentioned something about him hardly apearing in TC videos he laughed and said I am not represented by TC, someone asked about visa and he said I get it from tohoku Tourism
2) Sharla equally said it recently on her Patreon- she told a story about how during her last visa renewal at first the people at Tokyo creative filled out the wrong forms for her visa and she was nervous about it, because she only noticed while she was in the immigration office. The guy at the immigration was nice and allowed he to come back with the correct form. She than was very happy because when it was all said and done she got a 3 years visa for the first time ever.
3) I am assuming about aki since
In her moving to japan video- she lmentioned she got her visa via the company that reps her in japan - and that’s TC
5) I guessed on Joey
No one is spinning it as Chris taking advantage of Ryotaro. The point is that their relationship isn't comparable to Chris' with Natsuki because Ryotaro doesn't just appear in Chris' videos but is responsible for a lot of Chris' content through his own company and relationship with the tourism boards, and speaks fluent English.>>172937
Sorry, it was supposed to be a response to "get your info right" >>172915>>172946
Joey says he's a Japanese citizen on trash taste around 27:00>>172951
We've gone through this already but most likely he's also quietly keeping his Australian citizenship due to a loophole in Japan.
I'd like to see proof too.
But I would point out, not that it matters, but every time Chris does a very Tohoku-promoting video, often Ryotaro is involved, and they go somewhere that Ryotaro has set up. Ryotaro is like what professional travel show producers (think Anthony Bourdain RIP) call a "fixer" - someone who creates the itinerary and arrangements for a travel show, who has local connects, etc. Chris is NOT paying Ryotaro for this. (Fixers ususally get paid well by production crews.)
Ryotaro and Chris have a really cool symbiotic relationship where they each benefit, and they have developed a funny repartee. Chris benefits from the content for his channel, and a VISA, and Ryotaro benefits because he has a contract with Tohoku to work with people like Chris to promote the region on social media. Tohoku Tourism pays Ryotaro, Chris gets a visa and views and clicks, everyone wins. TC has nothing to do with it. TC sets up other deals for Chris (like being the fixer for the whole original JAJ) and providing camera work etc. They benefit because Chris is so high profile.
I think people here are trying to make way too much out of this and not really understanding how brands/influencers/agencies actually function.

Did the AIJ reddit fandom find this thread or something? What a sudden influx of wks on a holy crusade defending their King Chris. Questioning every bit of known info, not been here on previous threads. Go back selfposting redditors.>>172958
Poor anon, why go through the effort explaining if half of these selfposters won't accept anything you say and demand proof. I thought this stuff was known to most of us here? Clearly the fandom army didn't go further than Chris's videos.
For the record, there is more of us who agree the whole Natsuki thing is tasteless at best. It's a one-trick pony, frankly some people including myself are getting tired of the trick. It's not heresy to talk about this lol.

Things I don't understand why she doesn't do: she could pluck the brow hairs on her glabella so it would give the illusion of her eyes being further apart. Same effect if she only applied eyeliner in the outer corners of her eyes. Also her constant lipfillers call attention to the fact how wide her mouth is which throws the proportions off in her face. Also I just don't understand…how her nose works. In profile, it looks small and fits her face, but from the front, it looks like it's too large for her face>>173120
The thin eyebrows was a good look for her I think
She was droning on about how she needed a nose job in the blog post where I got the pic. How many has she had now? Two surgeries? But by Asian plastic surgeons, right?
She also needs to ditch the thin ass bangs. They are doing her no favors.

I remember when Glamour uploaded a video with Lili Reinhart who reacted to makeup tutorials on Youtube. And holy shit Bronwyn was in there! So I clicked her tutorial and the first seconds in I got secondhand embarrassment because of course someone in the comments compared her looks to Lili kek Glamour didn't show Lili's reaction to it, unfortunately.
It starts at 11:20
holy crap that stuff about Taylor I did not know, I basically found out about her last year and surprised she had a weeby past. I need more milk on this
Back in the day I sporadically read about kooters and venus,ah, those were the days.
And wtf Sharla dating Chris? I'm tired and it took me like 10 minutes to realize it's Chris from abroad in japan and I had a dumb "ooooh" moment lol.
That being said I have a question, who is/are the most succesfull ex Jvloggers?
It seems to me that would be Taylor since she managed to land herself a rich husband, but afaik she wasn't that poor to being with.
Taylor R's thread, discuss her here: >>>/w/121374

Not too uncommon. Faces are rarely 100% symmetrical
Fuck off, I’m not an absolute retard I know you were making Tom Cruise teeth joke.
God what is this thread
this gets me too. bronwyn has never been able to make it online. her numbers are crazy low considering how many years she's been at it. she gets little to no interaction on any platform. she was even in japan during the height of jvloggerdom and still couldn't manage to grow a following. i think some people have "it" and some dont. at least she doesn't quit easily i guess>>173128
the shape of her nose from the front is not great, because it's so bottom-heavy. she didn't let the doctors change it when she got a nose job, she just made them try to make it more symmetrical. because her nose goes from very thin at the top to very wide at the bottom, it makes it look like she's perpetually in a fish eye lens. she should have let the korean docs give her the standard pixie ass nose tbh
because she's a vlogger who shares this shit? she has a dozen videos about her nosejob and she talks in depth about what she had the doctor do, including telling the doc to keep her nose the same, just "more symmetrical."
around the 5 minute mark in this vid she talks about "the small difference" to her nose that she wanted. and it's not just this video. she's mentioned it multiple times in multiple videos
stop trying to instigate infighting.
nose jobs are boring
Back to Chris and Sharla!
She is not "back in Japan already" you fucking retard. She said she's going to move there. Anyone can say they are going to do anything. I can say I'm going to go live on the moon.
Japan is still closed. She's not in Japan you shitposter.
i mean either she's back in japan or she's lying based on the comments she's made, documented in the simon and martina thread >>1331303
it's not impossible to get into japan right now if you have a visa that qualifies as an exception to the entry ban. sundai got back into japan from california last month. granted we still have no idea what visa she's on (she has a 5 year, so…)
So awesome someone else was able to go? How does that have anything to do with the fact that >>173894
isn't in Japan? Most of the anons in the thread can see you are the Chris-sperg too. You have't posted any milk from anyone, anon. Just stop if you iterally can't contribute anything and don't watch the videos fully like >>173894

I noticed that you or others on here, are very quick to call people names, calling them liar. A word of advice, before you hit reply, do a bit of a research take a second.
look before you embarrass yourself.
EYK thread is over here. >>>/snow/1331286
Martina is still with Breaker.
>>173950>Just stop if you iterally can't contribute anything and don't watch the videos fully like
ntaryt but if you watched the video fully you'd see at the end she puts in airplane footage and audio of a Japanese train announcement. You can argue that it's old B-roll footage but considering her IG posts >>173964
, she's back in Japan.

Oops dropped image
Source for Sharla's health problems and her announcement to leave for Canada: her patreon.
Also in Aki's video about tattoos she mentions Sharla's voice is dead. Something's up with her throat.

Chris is such a fuckin basic bitch. This is exactly why he says year after year that he wants to make a short film but never has ideas. He can only replicate what he sees instead of creating something new. Yet, he thinks of himself as some auteur.
Brazil gets points for being a Criterion film, but imagine your IMDb-top-100 ass thinking that Brazil is the greatest film ever made and 2obscure4u.
File: 1632875034883.jpg (52.71 KB, 643x506, Woman-in-the-Dunes-2.jpg)
I agree with you anon
One hundred and one percent.
Chris is a pathetic hack. He fixates on one or two things and thinks it makes him edgy and cultured. He clearly just saw Brazil for the first time. Before that it was Blade Runner, referenced ENDLESSLY.
He gets the question "what's some cool Japanese music I should check out" on the podcast or via other social media and the only thing he has to offer is Tatsuro Yamashita who he brings up over and over and over because all he knows and thinks is cool is city pop.
He knows nothing about Happy End, Harumi Hosono, YMO, Ryuichi Sakamoto, etc. He doesn't know UA, Hikaru Utada, Bonnie Pink, SMAP, Mr Children, etc etc etc
I'm not going to go listing tons of classic Japanese pop artists but you get my drift.
He's so basic and ignorant it's horrible.
I agree with you that it's fucking embarassing to see someone in public flaunting this idea that they're a "filmmaker" and know shit about film and talk endlessly about how they're going to make short films, have all the time and money and resources to do so, and then NEVER do it. Just keep making Top Gear wannabe bullshit youtube content.
He's so full of himself it's pathetic.
A great example of his idiocy is that he did a whole video about the Tottori Sand Dunes (documented on this board with images proving he shared cabin with Sharla) and not ONCE does he mention the most ICONIC film to ever be inspired by and set in the Tottori Sand Dunes, called Woman in the Dunes which is a masterpiece of the Japanese New Wave of cinema in the 1960s and based on the incredibly important Japanese existential novel Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe.
Chris claims to be this "auteur" who is super into film and yet he's so fucking ignorant that he doesn't even make the connection to this groundbreaking piece of Japanese cinema when he goes to Tottori because showing his clown Natsuki on a camel is clearly the priority.
Chris is horrible and beyond problematic
Image: still from Woman in the Dunes.
Woman in the Dunes is an incredible piece of cinema.
That's my point, dingbat. It's NOT an obscure movie.
Anyone who knows the first thing about classic cinema (not even Japanese cinema) knows this film.
Chris is a charlatan
Stop double posting nonnie
or you'll get banned forthwith
You've clearly got issues dude. Just because he doesn't obsess over tedious aspects of Japanese pop culture like you do, doesn't make him a pathetic hack.
It's laughable that you refer to him as horrible and problematic
, when your comments come off as borderline psychopathic.
"I agree anon" they write, while responding to their own post above.
Sometimes it seems like there's just three people in this forum posting and replying to themselves. It's a den of winners.(sage your shit)
Yes. I hate Chris because his favorite movie is different to mine too.
I think everyone who doesn't rank Shawshank Redemption or the Godfather as their favorite movie should be sent to a prison camp.
He probably just didn't think his audience would be interested. Maybe he's never seen the movie and is a pleb with no taste in film, but if it's such a prominent aspect of tourism in the area it sounds like he would at least be aware of it and made a choice not to bring it up.
Either way it's nitpicking and the retard in this situation is the sperg unironically saying shit like>Chris is horrible and beyond problematic.
because of a fucking movie lmao.
NO ONE CARES! honestly, appreciate your passion about the movie, most people have not seen, but calling someone horrible and problematic
over a boring movie, tells me all I need to know about you. You are a fault finding gate keeping, wanna be savior or Japan and Japanese culture. Are you the grassroots diplomat aka gaijin goomba? never mind, probably not, but you weebs are all the same. GET A LIFE.
You're confusing multiple people and I agreed that anon calling him horrible and problematic
is being overly dramatic, but he spent most of the dune time talking about Lawrence of Arabia, another old movie, and had Natsuki reenact it.
I think the overall point is that Chris is a basic bitch who says he's gonna do things (like make short films) to make himself sound like an auteur, then never does it, and grabs low hanging fruit for his videos while failing to really understand the context about things, and exploit his "friends" to a sort of unpleasant degree.
He's definitely no film scholar or even a good filmmaker. He's just a youtuber who isn't really that smart, good-looking, or funny.
She Literally said she could not function there without her man…how TF is she going to get around when her disease acts up.
I swear she is a munchie. NO way would someone endanger their life like this otherwise. She said she could not leave the house to get food some days were so "debilitating"
She literally has nothing left to loose I guess….(sage )

She needs therapy asap. All I see is she's bandwagoning trends like big lips, big full brows, bimbo blond hair and creepy blue icy contacts. It's the opposite of everything she is. If she would accept herself she could be modelling in Asia. She once mentioned that she had the opportunity to model in Japan but for some reason she didn't want to do it anymore. Bii shares the same look as some other Japanese models as Japanese magazines like interesting faces like hers. Just natural hair and no plastic surgery. This is the best she has ever looked.

Chris big studio reveal. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Sharla decorated this. Chris is not a planty kinda dude. But also - you go to the trouble to get a whole freaking new studio and then you make it look exactly like your apartment? Uhh…. ok
Such a retarded nitpick, you could’ve commented on the lukewarm stream but you’re going to autistically point out how many plants there are in the background?
Oh look it’s that autist who’s obsessed with Chris and Sharla, back with an unsaged post every time Chris posts a video.
I’m with >>175935
fucking take your meds.
That sounds like a great idea, what will it be based on other than the speculation that he’s dating Sharla?
His one t shirt or how fat he is?
though this time he switched up the colour!
They also mention that they are a girl and the source of info is not someone from Tokyo creative.
They never said they are not Lily so I'm gonna assume it's her.
"I found out something about her and decided to share it" - probably one of her friends in Sendai told her that Chris and Sharla are dating. She did live there for 3 years with him, so they prob have a group of mutual friends.
he's trying to throw off the trail by saying he's bringing a "chicken, hamburgers" bag on a date.
cuz sharla doesn't eat those things
File: 1634628494485.jpg (Spoiler Image, 244.91 KB, 835x486, uwu.jpg)
found a pic of chris on his date
Afaik Sharla is still in Canada - at least that's what she says on her Patreon.
I think Chris was just joking and was referencing going out with a mate like Connor or maybe someone who gasp
isn't a youtuber.
Sharla had a tumour on her theroid.
She went to Canada because she would've had too wait three months in Japan for further steps.
>>177995>I really hate that she didn't give any kind of update so she can get her youtube views for her bait video.
she totally cultivated a tumor just for the youtube views lmao do you have cum for brains?
how does having a "vendetta on chris" have anything to do with wondering if they have an open relationship?
are you so repressed that you think suggesting they have an open relationship is some kind of slander? grow the fuck up nonnie
I just watched her video and I can’t believe it was even suggested that they’re in an open relationship. She could’ve been seriously ill, I think he would have gone with her if they were together, even if it was to meet her after the op.
Yeah and isn’t it super hard to re enter Japan still? if
they are dating he would probably wait to travel until after they receive the news after the surgery.
I’m really hoping is all good news!
No they don't look rich, she might be at an airbnb. If you look at the houses featured in her past canada vlogs it's a completely different/homely place.>>178073
If you have a valid
work visa you can easily travel in/out Japan now. The 2-week quarantine is mandatory however, so people who don't have the luxury to take that time off, avoid it.>>178072
so you would rather her string her paypigs along with her legitimate cancer scare? Are you an angry paypiggie because she didn't share her life with you before the general public? your outrage is fucking weird piggie-chan.
Tbh I had thought that Chris and sharla probably were dating but seeing as she travelled alone with what she was told was 95 percent likely to be an advanced cancerous tumour in her neck.. I think even with covid complicating things (or a cat that surely someone like Mark could mind) you'd accompany a partner facing that diagnosis and treatment. He was making videos eating junk foods from Japan as normal during all this. So I don't know now.
Shes at an age where you certainly expect your partner to be alongside you when faced with a life threatening health crisis and not to just leave that up to your parents. Whether she's currently single or whether she's seeing him secretly.. it at least appears she doesn't have that serious support there in Japan. I hope she is single, because if she's not that's bleak or should be an eye opening experience.

File: 1634984149176.png (1.23 MB, 1961x2048, Screenshot_20210820-193918.png)
Proof of what? All this proves is he took her to the airport. You don’t have to be in a romantic relationship with someone to do that.>>178273
Exactly, I believe 100% their relationship is platonic. In fact I’d go as far to say if they did hide living together it’s because they want to avoid speculation like the autists have been doing in this thread.
I've never known anyone facing what they thought was almost certain to be cancer.. and both partners agreed to be apart and let her go alone with just her family on the other end stepping in and him doing essentially nothing during the diagnosis, the surgery, the recovery. Nothing.
I don't know if she has a pattern now in her relationships where she sacrificed for the husband too and I never got the vibe he'd be one to return the favor. She moved and tried to adjust but was miserable, stuck it out for a while, the end. He wasn't about to move for her then. She's so private about things it's hard to tell but watching the video I was wondering does she just sell herself short when she's choosing partners or setting acceptable expectations? Because who would get a solo flight to go face likely cancer and honestly feel okay with that.
Do you realize how retarded you sound trying to keep this made up milk going? they have cash to burn because of sponsors, so they can
travel. Use you head or something, anon. You are literally adding narritive to make whatever story you want seem plausible, when everyone else in the thread has been calling you out on how retarded it is. You have had zero proof to back anything up. >>178247 >>178251 Those are not proof at all and make no sense to how it would prove anything either. Then you have this shit >>178286
>>178283 which doesn't do anything to prove they are dating, but that they might've lived together at one point. I know Connor was staying with Joey and Aki for a while before they moved and he moved, and now Connor is moving yet again. All the YT people have lived together or with someone at some point and Aki and Joey are the only people who dated.
