Previous thread

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

Kind of miss when Taylor was still in Japan and everyone had their mean girls arc. All the ex-jvloggers don’t do anything anymore, it’s so boring

No. 166572

It's been 3+ weeks since Sharla posted anything to YT. Very curious about the mental/editing/narrative gymnastics she will now be doing since she will be full-time living with (or at least very close to) Chris. This is the only time I've been interested in her channel in years.

No. 166602


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

This was mentioned in the previous thread as well, but was brushed off because of no evidence.

No. 166872

it strikes me as a bit ridiculous to be honest, the lengths they go to hide it. i sort of get why chris might want to keep things secret but it makes way more sense to just have it as an open secret kind of thing, where they keep things hidden to some degree by not openly addressing their relationship, but they won't outright deny it either. having to scrub every trace of your relationship every time you make a slip up just seems exhausting & it's clearly a problem they've been running into a few times now

No. 166888

sharla just got done going public with her divorce and you can tell it was really hard for her. if she was public with chris then that means if they break up she will have to go through that again. makes sense she would keep it dl just in case.

No. 166893

Yeah people demanding they go public are being massively fucking weird about it. If sharla made fun of YouTube couples or played the “I’m so single gaiz” card I’d see it as milk, but this is literal definition of “mad over nothing”

No. 166913

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.

No. 166942

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 used to really like his channel. Since the baby, alot of videos on his main channel ended up just being about the baby.. The Day In The Life content is awesome. Baby stuff, eh, wish he would keep it to the tokyo zebra channel.

No. 166962

Maybe Chris & Sharla aren't going public bc they think their relationship won't work out?

What are the odds they last anyway?
He will get bored soon enough and go for someone less lazy, smarter & skinnier.
Not that it would be hard.
Don't know why Chris gets teased on his weight when Sharla is around.

No. 166964


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.

No. 166966

> hiding this relationship is futile.
I mean Chris did a pretty good job hiding his crazy weeaboo ex by rarely mentioning her, so maybe they’re doing it for good reason

No. 166968

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.

No. 166974

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.

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

No. 166999

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?

No. 167000

I much rather think maybe they let things slip so it slowly gets public? And they don't need to do an awkward announcement since they have been dating for approx. 2 years?

Taiga is not a kirakira name.

No. 167009

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.

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.

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.

Rachel has a reputation among jvloggers of not being very friendly (see the early jvlogger threads from like 6 years ago when the kanadajin stuff went down) and got a nosejob but never talked about it outside of a single youtube comment one time (where she claimed she couldn't breathe and HAD to get a nosejob). they're also clearly making kind of shitty low-quality youtube content recently just for sponsorships to pay for their house, but that's not very milky.

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.

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.

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.

No. 167581


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

No. 167582

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.

No. 167588

i agree with anon that chris' friendship with natsuki is borderline exploitative.

No. 167589

i can't even watch most "J-vloggers' anymore - if i wanna see content about japan on youtube i'll watch tabieats, mrs. eats, tokyo llama, asian boss, yuta, nobita, etc… no need to watch awkward whiny western weebs unless i'm hate-watching. daniel lord aka "hiding in my room" is funny to hate-watch.

No. 167593

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.

No. 167604

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.

No. 167608

I don't really disagree with any of this to be honest. It's just I'd much rather have Chris be the prototypical jvlogger in the 2020s than fucking Venus Angelic of Kanadajin, Texan in Tokyo etc. I really can't elaborate how glad I am that their era of getting subs for lowest common denominator content is over.

No. 167615

> their millitary provided apt
Yeah that’s another peeve of mine, they’re living the weeb dream off of military money. Out of curiosity I looked into the tuition for their kid’s school and it was like 10k USD a year. It’s probably subsidized by the military but holy shit, the amount spent to keep this weeb family stationed in inactive duty is mind blowing

No. 167617

Only in Japan is super cringe. cant stand to watch.

No. 167618

100% agree. also, how many more times is Chris going to base a video/tweet/fb post on some oh so hilarious engrish motto on a hat/notepad/tshirt. it's getting so boring, but just read the comments and his fans lap that shit up

No. 167634

i completely agree. i like natsuki a lot but i hate that so often it comes down to 'lets make natsuki speak english the whole time and laugh at the wacky mistakes he makes lololol' i think chris tries to make it clear that their friendship is genuine, but even so it does feel like he's trying to cater to his fans by forcing natsuki to make an appearance and parrot out phrases in engrish all the time

No. 167638

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

No. 167640

Never thought I would see them here. Not very milky. So what if they buy out lotteries if it’s really busy they will buy what they can and go back in line. These lotteries typically have an extra item included if you buy out the lottery so this type of stuff is encouraged in Japan. Nancy has her moments on camera, but collectors are typically hoarders. Not trying to WK I just think this is reaching.

No. 167648

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.

No. 167662

I also enjoy kuji, but you can’t deny it being gambling. It goes into questionable territory when she makes her kids gamba with her and they visibly don’t want to. Overall very KY hoarder parents, that aren’t doing anything particularly wrong, just concerning

No. 167702

chris likes to call himself a film maker but he seems to be very amateurish in that domain. Compare his work to actual film makers like Danny Gervitz, Peter Mckinnon, (or any other film maker with a yt presence) to see what I mean.
Its a classic case of a big fish in a small pond and the localised success is feeding his ego.
When he released his last passion project he got a bunch of constructive criticism which he didn't handle well (alluded to it in his last trash taste appearance).
Hoping he drops the attitude and arrogance to genuinely improve his craft but I don't see him having much success beyond his amateurish j tourism vids.

Something I've noticed too, actually any type of criticism. Especially in the YT comment sections.

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

I also wondered what he's gonna do once they move to England. Because sure, on Youtube right now he's a popular J-vlogger but in England he's just gonna be a weeb who once filmed videos about Japan. But maybe he has other means/plans of supporting himself, who knows

No. 167794

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.

No. 167799

I waa convinced that she was pregnant a lil while back when I noticed her clearly hiding her stomach in videos. Noticed it on both her channel and when she appeared on a couple of TC ones aswell as Chris and joeys noodle challenge. She was holding items in front of her in the way actresses do to hide a bump while filming. I think her weight in that area fluctuates and she's self conscious. She's even addressed pregnancy rumours before because people kept either seeing a bump or attributing her behaviour to that.

No. 167801

Sharla has always been pretty vocal about not wanting kids. But you never know. People can flip the script on that one real quick when they're 35 and it was an "accident"

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.

I know it was mentioned a while back but I get major major gay vibes from Emma and Sarah from TC for such a long time now. I feel like they might be a thing? Especially in the new video from TC posted today in yukata. They keep giving each other certain looks and touching each other's hands. Could also be a close friend thing as I don't really know much about Sarah, but it's giving me a different feel. Anybody else think they might be together? Potentially aiding in Emma's meltdown video?

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.

No. 167866

I think she's been pretty consistent about not wanting them, so like other anons, I highly doubt she would go through with a pregnancy. If you truly don't want kids, the prospect of an unplanned pregnancy is absolute terror. Never get pregnant for anyone other than yourself and your future kid.

sharla was a bit heavier while living in korea (i think she's on the taller side?), but then lost weight after/during her divorce by intermittent fasting… but i don't know where she's at now.

if it doesn't bother her; then more power to her but i feel like it kinda haunts her mind a bit since she seems pretty picky about her angles or baggy clothes

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?

One thing that always bothers me about Sharla’s lie of “hey I got a second apartment for “work”. We all know how difficult it is for foreigners to rent an alpartment in japan, let alone 2, practically impossible. If people use their brain, it would be obvious that getting 2 apartment is only possible if you have someone else name on it, aka your partner.

No. 168255

Another lie - she lies on her channel about just getting the appartment in April. But on the trash taste podcast Aki described going up to visit Sharla in morioka where Sharla surprised her with a birthday cake. In it she also mentioned going “downstairs” to watch a crime show with Sharla. Aki Bday is in February… so Sharla aka Chris has had that 2nd apartment way longer than she is pretending to have had it on channel.

Japan doesn't do dual citizenship. They aren't letting him back in because Japan is closed to non-residents and has been since Covid started.

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.

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

You are 100% wrong. Aki for example was only able to get to japan because of them. Sharla also spoke about them doing it for her on her Patreon.

No. 168425

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).


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.

No. 168429

>I also don't think TC was established enough to be securing visas.

TC had a parent company that is well established, I don't imagine it's that hard for them to sponsor people on behalf of TC.

No. 168431

Also Sharla literally said TC sponsored her visa

No. 168432

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

No. 168464

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.

No. 168465

Also I am sure that TC spent a sh*t tone of money on Chris’ original journey across Japan project. I wonder if they were able to recoup or gain some sort of prophet out of that?

No. 168493

Sharla has liked most of Sunnys Instagram photos, no one else has though.

what do you mean "work for really low rates" ?

do you not understand how youtube works

No. 168515

"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?

No. 168519

Okay you guys got to stop being this retarded.

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.

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.

No. 168525

Lol so tc does not take a cut of any of the YouTubers Adsense revenues. But when they ask the you tubers job offers for sponsor like the ‘host town projects’ or Santory project, they take a cut of that sponsor money. Also they ask some of the YouTubers to appear on the tc channel for free, tc keeps all the ad revenues for the tc channel. They will also field & negotiate sponsorships for their influencers, taking a cut of it. They also make money from the Japanese government for travel contents.

No. 168529

No. 168530

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:
- emma
- aki
- sharla
- chris (mabye)

but that's it

No. 168532

They should have, but they don’t. That’s was one of Chris O bad business decision, by not asking for at least a small percentage. Per Chris B on Radrey podcast “why come Japan” not only is he not under contract with TC buy also they get 0% of his ad revenues. That’s why he joined them and helps them out whenever he feels like it by appearing on their videos.

No. 168533

lol then what's in it for CB? there's literally zero incentive.

No. 168534

TC was suppose to work on this pay for a class service like skillshare. It was called TClearn or something like it. It was the brain child of Chris O where the top influencers would teach a class on a specific subject that they are “expert” on. And after all tithe hard work into it for free, the new leadership that fired Chris O decided to not go through with the project… the other creators were pissed. If you notice there is a period of time for about a year where Chris did nothing with TC on their channel, that’s why.

No. 168537

Yep! 0 incentive for him. He does use some of the staff for camera work if he is in Tokyo for example. Shiori helped him film the train video, which was suppose to be a santory sponsorship negotiate by TC, but fell through. Alex Lee the Malaysian girl who works for TC helped him film that capsule tower video and Ian who works for TC helps him produce JAJ. He pays them for the work I would imagine.

No. 168538

TC's youtube channels don't make squat from ad revenue. Their website claims they provide all these services (it's a bizarre laundry list of everything from " influencer promotions" whatever that means to providing translation services and yes the TC Learn garbage shitshow as well. Vague "project management" and "social media management" - There's no way the company (pre or post Okano) brings in enough money to pay the rather large staff they still maintain even after shedding people plus expenses on their office/studio plus however they compensate their "influencers". This "company" is still investor funded, someone somewhere has some deep ass pockets and eventually they'll get tired of flushing money down the toire.

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.

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.

That "spending my 30th birthday alone" livestream Chris did in Sharla's apartment (=closet room, go check out the previous thread before you disagree) last year (he was NOT alone since they are 100% dating and travel was banned) made him get so many sympathy donations and superchats… that is just LYING for money if you think about it.

First of all you misunderstand the point of my post it was a celebration of how well they are doing.

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.

No. 169172

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

No. 169173

Also I thought Connor did a pretty good job explaining his thought process or approach to how he speaks about money. He explained that making this much money on YouTube is new to him, but also that YouTube income can go up and down significantly from month to month. And it took him a while to adjust to his new income range and to see how consistent it would be. Sudden success can be pretty jaring

No. 169180

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.

No. 169189

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.

No. 169207

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.

No. 169208

I couldn’t care less if he was alone or not. It was still a fun stream and he actually makes an effort to reply to every donation unlike a lot of other vloggers.

Here’s the thing.. they don’t live together. They only do in your head.

What even is this thread now?

No. 169296

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.

No. 169299

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.

damn the dedication to keep their relationship a secret lol

just seems easier to break the ice and say they're dating? There's seriously nothing to lose if they do so. It's just wasted effort to pretend they're not and must be annoying to keep mental notes of each other's social media to not make sure nothing cross contaminates lol it sounds miserable

No. 169323

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.

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.

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.

No. 169448

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.

No. 169451

No. As long as one of your parents is Japanese and you obtained your non-Japanese citizenship via blood/birth, you can keep your Japanese citizenship no matter where you were born.

No. 169466

Japanese law is very strict that after age 22 you must pick a nationality regardless of where you were born, if one of your parents is a native born japanese. If your non-Japanese parent is, say, American, you must renounce your Japanese citizenship should you decide to retain American citizenship. It's always been this way. Similarly, if a Japanese marries a foreign national after the age of 20, they have 2 years to maintain their Japanese nationality before they must renounce one of the citizenships.

No. 169475

No, you can maintain your Japanese citizenship as long as you don't renounce it or attempt to acquire another citizenship after 22. This is because Japan can't force you to renounce the citizenship of another country and they have never revoked Japanese citizenship of an adult dual national by blood/birth in such cases. It's a very well-known secret among half-Japanese and Japanese embassies and consulates have also advised dual nationals about it. However, it means you'll be treated as Japanese in Japan so if you commit a crime, you'll be punished as a Japanese and not deported as a foreigner. If you're skeptical, just google it.

No. 169477

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."

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 was weeks away from going into labor so being very picky at a time like that is selfish.

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-citizens

No. 169544

They might be shitty at managing money or they have a lot of debt to pay off or both. Before Youtube Paolo had a start up company that developed an app called "eikaiwa now". It didn't go anywhere and he shutdown the app in 2019. He talked about it in one of his videos and said he put all of his money into it but it's safe to assume he also took out loans. Although it wasn't a complete loss for him since he was able to meet his wife Maiko because she was one of his employees.

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.

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.

Nothing fishy at all. She and her husband moved to Japan like 3 years ago after they came here on their honeymoon. Her husband is most likely military affiliated.

She is educated, well rounded, well traveled and seems like both she and her husband are earning a good living.

It was actually more than that. Atleast $3000 worth of baby items. John Daub is so cheap he couldn't even buy his own wife or baby anything. He just used the Amazon gift cards he had on his wishlist and claimed he bought them. I find him very obnoxious and he is very rude to his wife.

No. 170312

She deleted a bunch of videos it seems like. Because she use to have a bunch of videos on her life in the USA and her moving process to Japan. She has a longer IG presence as well.

No. 170333

In an old video (one of the moving process, now deleted videos), she mentioned he worked for the government. I think it may have been at the US embassy in law or a related field. The husbands work paid for all the relocation including moving the dogs I think so he must do something quite important. Kind of shocked me cause they seemed maybe early 30s at the time, and that seems quite young to be in such a well compensated position. But I have been watching her since then and enjoy her videos. Shes definetly got the older millenial humour, but shes pretty genuine.

No. 170335

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.

No. 170340

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 shtty job, is well travelled and well rounded.

No. 170361

I am curious to see, howq is Sharla going to explain, her obvious couples trip to Matsushima Japan in a couple of weeks? “Just me my FRIEND Chris, Natsuki and his wife going away for the weekend.” Or “hey my FRIEND Chris is just showing me Sendai.” Or sort of pretend he is not on the trip. Which lie would it be?

No. 170363

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?

No. 170394

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.

No. 170399

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.


No. 170416

I like her.atlas and was recommended her moving to Japan video like over a year ago? I think the algorithm helped her out too. My main conspiracy with her is that she is no WAY just in her 20s. I don’t remember the exact age she claims to be but everything about her says 30s. Her appearance, but moreso her attitude, her humor, her other friends (her friends are graying), her interests (pottery and crafts). I also don’t think she teaches or anything, but claims to do it for relatability. I do like her videos though. She’s not too weeby and she’s not a vegan, dairy free, or obsessed with cats. IMO she’s one of the few ‘normal’ female jvloggers. Her and the one who moved to Taiwan were my favorites.

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.

And damn I feel bad for her, I think no one really realized how toxic (or crazy) Simon is lol if he was always like this or his midlife crisis is making it worse.

Land is expensive in japan so most homes have 2 floors, it's cheaper to build up. Also, seems like to simon/martina had the need to live in a trendy hipster area like Kichioji. Even in Korea they lived and worked in Hongdae which is super expensive and probably why they had to do a gofundme

Japan is difficult for those with mobility issues. There’s lots of stairs and elevators can be really out of the way. I’ve seen elevators that you have to walk up stairs to use.

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?

Life Where I'm From has done some videos about living with a disability in Japan (Tokyo) a way back. His Traveling With A Physical Disability in Japan video is also informative.

No. 171520

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.

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).

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 think Chris kind of shoots himself in the foot by berating every guest on his channel except like Natsuki and the women. Well the things he does to Natsuki are different.. Still not good though.

No. 172027

Yeah not sure why he does that. Either he is really good with keeping up his YT persona or it's just a shitty personality trait showing through.

No. 172031

It also always made me slightly uneasy how he made Natsuki sort of the clown of his vlogs because of his broken English

No. 172032

I feel like it kind of taints the image of the people he hangs out with. Especially Ryotaro's. At first I thought he was like some legit businessman or something, his youtube career I can't take seriously now because of how Chris has potrayed him..

No. 172033

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.

No. 172036

As vapid as Sharla can be, I thought it was nice in her recent video where she was chatting to Natsuki in Japanese and they were talking about onomatopoeia - it came across as really natural and was actually interesting from a language perspective

No. 172037

It'd be nice if Chris would talk in Japanese with Natsuki in his videos but no the bastard is too lazy to put subtitles to his videos.. It's not like he'd have to subtitle every single video and every single second of it. And he subtitles his broken english anyway so it makes no sense. He's a proper cunt.

No. 172041

Exactly! Natsuki has some interesting history and knows probably more than Chris portrays in his videos. He's also usually a bit more timid on other channels, like TC. I'll never forget how Chris pulled down Natsuki's pants for the giggles. What grown ass man does that? I wonder how much of this all is tolerated for the sake of whatever agreement they have.

No. 172043


I think Chris is a total prick and is just playing up to this sarky British humour thing as I guess his American viewers like it? (Idk, I'm a britfag and it winds me up). I hope Natsuki is at least getting a massive payday. God knows Chris can afford it with his millions of patreon subscribers.

No. 172044


Also could he not just pay someone to do the subs if he really didn't want to???? Can't imagine that would cost a lot.

No. 172045

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.

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…

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.

No. 172120

tkyosam does occasionally make a decent video, his video personality tends to drive people away but if you can get past that he does have good content every now and then.
I did glean something from one of his viewers, said he went to a chris broad video seminar and afterwards they all went out for dinner and chris was a massive snob, didn't want to talk to any of the people that paid to goto the seminar. Apparently there was something going on with Sharla and Norm too, giving off the impression that they're more than just friends.

No. 172158

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.

No. 172159


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

No. 172287

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.

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.

Honestly, stop it with the Chris is mean bit. If you follow Chris long enough you would know, that this is the banter that they do, t’s nothing new and it’s not mean spirited, it’s called scarcasm. You can question if it’s funny ( it’s not IMO) but ryotoro doesn’t need Chris, he is a successful business man. If he was being bullied by Chris, he wouldn’t work with him.

No. 172366

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"

Yeah I agree his schtick with ryotaro is just hamming up the 'british' humour. But as a britfag I find it really cringe, and it does come off as rude sometimes. And I think his bits with Natsuki are much worse. Basically Chris just isn't very funny and resorts to this lowest common denominator humour for cheap laughs. But IME the only people who find that kind of thing funny are insecure middle class blokes and girls trying to impress them.

No. 172386

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.

No. 172388

Wonder what else Chris "cooks" in Sharla's "kitchen"

No. 172504

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.
Eat it. Also, a lot of people have a koseki and have barely lived in Japan or speak Japanese.

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.

bingo. she would be nobody in australia, but in japan she's got a following. she needs to go back to vlogging and take a break from streaming if she can't keep it together on live. at least in a vlog she can curate her brand- being this vulnerable to your sycophant stream viewers is like a gateway to drama imo and prevents her from doing anything but stagnating.

No. 172588

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.

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.

lmao i can't believe he made this video, he's just sounds whiney and woe is me. I think martina was right about the narcissistic personality disorder thing. And the whole pet comparison bit about "having a child in a previous marriage along with a child in a new marriage" makes it seems like he really is dating that discount yoga teacher girl. I think everyone wants them to stop posting on their shared yt/ig and leave the platforms as dead, but i bet simon won't because he'll never catch up to martina now lol

>>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.

No. 172844

The dude has helped build entire brands for Natsuki and Ryotaro. Natsuki owns a struggling beauty salon business and together with Chris they’ve made a film, a travel series and recently launched a Cameo for Natsuki. He’s always vocal on podcasts about how he wants to support him, how he pays Natsuki and even gave half the merchandize sales to him. His actions speak louder than words. Make a mountain out of a mole hill if you desire about this silly language bullcrap. But the fact is Chris and Natsuki have a loving friendship and it’s twisted and depressing you view it like this.

No. 172845

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.

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.

So since you have elected yourself as Natsuki spoke person. Can you tell me why Natsuki is always begging Chris to appear in more videos and to make another movie about him?

No. 172850

It’s just banter, but I’m British so I get it. I can guarantee you Ryotaro and Natsuki know this too. Try watching an episode of A League of their own or Soccer AM, you’ll see exactly the same behaviour from typical British blokes.

Simon is a fucking clown for making this video. He should have minded his own business and ignored everything by starting his own channel. But guess what?

No. 172855

you don't have to be British to get British banter - and that's a sorry excuse for the way Chris treats people. this apologism for his abuse is sickening. also saying "well he pays natsuki so it makes it okay, he can treat him however he wants, because natsuki likes it" is also gross.

No. 172858

Your dramatic over the top of the purported mistreatment of Natsuki is a sign that Tokyo lens is in here doing his behind the scene jealous hate campaign on Chris. You are allowed to have your opinion, but I equally can disagree. I happen to think that Chris is a good friend to Natsuki and has helped him out financially through a difficult time, and equally give Natsuki a small measure of fame and attention that he so clearly craves. That’s my definition of a true friend… you need to find a reason to hate on Chris sure have at it, but just because you say it doesn’t make it true. Me and others defending that position, doesn’t make me a super fan of Chris, it means we have a different opinion. You have made your position loud and clear, move on.

No. 172860

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

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?

No. 172878

Sadly it sells and most of us are guilty of consuming that sweet sweet media. I do agree most of those jvloggers cater to a western audience. I switched from TV to YouTube because the content felt more genuine, but sadly I feel the more successfull vloggers get, the more fake everything becomes. Now I've started to watch more Japan stuff made by Japanese people. Channels like TabiEats, KimonoMom, MrsEats and even Nobita, have become increasingly interesting.

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.

No. 172909

Coming from meta, but anon, unless you actually have proof of anything you are saying, no one gives one fuck about your speculations about what is actually happening with Chris and Natsuki. No one is defending him just to defend him. They are calling you out on your tinfoils. The whole group is a bunch of middle-aged guys, shitting on each other now and then, and they all put themselves in those make fun of me scenarios. If you can't understand that dynamic in a friend group of single men, then you need help, but painting some weird racist narrative makes it absolutely a vendetta towards Chris because that's a massive load of bullshit, anon.

No. 172913

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.

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.

Where did this information come from that Ryotaro is the one who set Chris up with a visa, because an anon said it?

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.

No. 172944


I thought the Japanese tourism board gave him a media visa because of his youtube channel and then because of the Korean missle video he had that went on trending nationally in Japan in 2017, and that's when TC picked him up.

i'm sure there some lurker anon on this board who could actually clear this up with facts

Some facts-
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

No. 172947

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 Am sure he gets some money from them, when he apears is their video, but it’s nothing to write home about. But ummm ask yourself, who do you think got Natsuki that small job at Tokyo creative?

He's not hurting for cash, anon. Why does it matter at all if Chris got him a job? He wasn't homeless to begin with, he was traveling Europe for fucks sake.

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. 172959

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.

Sorry, it was supposed to be a response to "get your info right" >>172915

Chris paid for his trip to travel Europe- well more like Chris Patreon did. Because they were filming the natsuki movie. That’s another reason why natsuki wants to do another movie, because he wants Chris to take him to the USA Texas especially. Per the podcast natsuki is struggling financially because his business is in the countryside and because of the shrinking population there. Thus why Chris set up the cameo for him.

No. 172962

Isn't this all a good thing?

No. 172963

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.

No. 172964

Nope not going to- you either take my word or don’t. I don’t care if you believe it or not. You ask for clarification and I explained. Join Patreon for a day and look through their old live streams to confirm and then cancel. Or don’t and keep doubting, I don’t care. :)

And it's literally friends helping friends. No one is being taken advantage of here. Also no one is supposed to take the brunt of someone else's bad luck if one of them does get financially strapped too. What more do anons want Chris to do just because Natsuki's farm is failing because it's common knowledge that outside towns are becoming ghost towns?

A lot of Japanese people like the mundane, just go with it, life too which Natsuki absolutely always repeats in any videos about how much he loves just relaxing. He isn't the type of dude to care about having a massive house and stuff and anons need to realize, that most places in Japan don't sell anymore than a 1 bedroom to residents. Even CDawg had a massively hard time getting a 2 bedroom during his last move, because it just confuses the fuck out of Japanese people that a single person needs any more than a single room.

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.

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.

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

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

Anon, how do you now she tried to personally trek the doctor not to fix it? Seriously, if you're going to keep coming to this thread, stop making stuff up or adding extra context without proof. She got a botched job. Saying the doctor was told not to fix it is massively retarded and huge bs. That's an open invitation to a lawsuit if she didnt let him fix it.

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.

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.

Jeez. You've lowered the bar for bizarre reasons to hate on someone. I'm no fan of Abroad but I can appreciate the effort that goes into the videos.

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.

No. 174946

It's not an obscure film and the novel is considered one of the most famous Japanese novels of all time outside Japan. I agree anon went a little overboard on Chris mentioning Brazil, but not bringing up the film when he was at the Dunes is kind of unthinkable, even if he hadn't seen it. They have the novel on display at the museum-visitors center, its mentioned in most English language travel guides and one of the main reasons why foreign tourists visit the place. But in his Journey Across series, he missed a lot of the main or most important sites (which would have made his videos look better cinematography-wise too) when he visited each city and spent more time on antics, so it's not just a film thing and a pattern.

No. 174957

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

Just a driveby comment from someone who doesn't watch Chris, but wouldn't this problem arise from the fact he has a location manager who actually decides on locations and researches them? So he doesn't actually do the research himself and if his manager doesn't mention something beforehand it will not be mentioned in the video. (I'm probably using the wrong words, but someone wrote above that Chris has a guy who scouts out + researches locations so I'm just extrapolating on the information here)

No. 175026

I believe he scouts for himself by using Google maps, at least he mentioned that a couple of times. Except for Journey Across Japan, that had a team of people involved, I think he's mostly a one-man business.

No. 175028

If you're thinking of Ryotaro, I think he's mainly responsible for the locations in Northern Japan and it looks like Chris was sponsored by the Sunrise Express train for the Tottori Dunes video. He said Shiori and Sharla accompanied him and Natsuki "on short notice" to help film, so sounds like it was his responsibility to do the research this time.

No. 175030

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.

Lately every time Chris is criticized someone immediately accuses anon of being another jvlogger or gatekeeper and anyone who agrees with anything they say is also secretly them. Logan Paul has more views and people enjoy his videos, so what? Pointing out that Chris maybe doesn't do much background research on his subjects even when they're sponsored by travel or railway companies and falls back on tired Natsuki antics when he keeps presenting himself as a cinophile documentarian and Japan-expert is hardly being unfair.

There's a limit to how many hours you can work per week if you're on a student visa and everyone has to report their earnings and pay taxes if they live in Japan. However, it's really difficult to track how many hours someone works on their videos and the gov probably doesn't care if some small-time youtubers are working overtime or aren't paying their taxes.

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.

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.

update on the sunny and chris drama

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.

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.

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.

Wow that must have been really expensive to have in America especially since she doesn’t have US insurance. I don’t know about Canada, but Japanese health insurance only reimburses you the cost of what the procedure would be in Japan - and their medical care is a lot cheaper than US.

No. 178120

Same, I was wondering about the price she paid since health care is so expensive in the US. And also how much she earns per month bc she rarely does sponsored vids on YouTube.(sage)

No. 178152

There is no way that Sharla was able to afford surgery in a US hospital, and all the travel expense on her own. She most certainly got help, from a certain more successful, richer YouTube jvlogger. Without insurance her hospital bill alone will be around an eye watering $15000 to $25000. Especially if it was a specialty hospital. US healthcare system is no joke, and they would have not have touched her without a large deposit either.

Y'all know they can just bill the Canadian healthcare system right? If she got a referral she'd only have to pay the copays for her procedures) visits.

No. 178236

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.

No. 178250

I 100% agree that he should have been there. But perhaps they made the decision that he would not go together. Mark lives hours away in Fukuoka, he has a job he would not be able to watch her cat. Chris had a major interview lined up in October. Corona travel restriction must’ve factor into their decision as well. Other than Chris possibly being a shitty boyfriend, they are a very very serious long term couple.

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.

No. 178316

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.

No. 178319

Well, it could be that they're more interested in continuing to keep the relationship under wraps than anything else, like that takes precedence. They knew that if Chris accompanied her to Canada they'd pretty much have to let the cat out of the bag at that point.

THEY ARE A COUPLE!. It’s not a big deal. You don’t have to like it, you don’t have to believe it.

She literally says in her video she went to Florida for the surgery because she would have to wait months otherwise. She put her health first which is what everyone would fucking do if they were able to.

If you want to provide proof they are together just do it already, the speculation now is just plain delulu

Samefag cos I forgot to add -
Let’s state some actual facts:
Chris and Sharla work together and have a close circle of friends, they are obviously very good friends.
They (now) both live in Sendai.
They do have chemistry on camera (which tbh is the only thing that would convince me they’re fucking).
Here are your made up ‘facts’:
Sharla and Chris are dating because they have the same mug.
Because they have the same mug that means they live together.
Sharla had a chair in her appt that looked the same as Chris’
During a livestream someone apparently saw a picture frame with Sharla and Chris in an embrace but no one on the internet thought to screen shot it
Someone said something on a livestream about Sharla and Chris’s place but quickly changed the subject.
Chris took Sharla to the airport so that must mean they are together.

The most milky thing is why anyone would be so insistent that they weren't together. Literally nobody cares except for the anons like you who want to believe that living together, podcast and livestream slipups confirming it, being seen with the same furniture and household objects, and dropping someone off at the airport are all things platonic friends of the opposite sex do.

you forgot to add how sharla was with chris and natsuki in the video about the train and the dunes/camel stuff. we saw a bed in chris's cabin that was obviously used by another person, and we saw a futon next to chris's in his room. we also know the only people on the trip was chris, natsuki, sharla and shiori.

normally (in past chris/TC videos) the guys would room together and the girls would. But we know that Natsuki was given his own train cabin and hotel room. So why would Chris be sharing a room with someone if it wasn't Sharla?
