I’m gonna go out on a limb here and suggest it’s because this is lolcow and not a fan forum?

Norm was there, so was Dogen, so there goes that theory.
He does indeed look like shit. Pretty fucked this asshole narc was invited
Look at that stupid face he pulls
what's Dogen's deal? I like his channel but he doesn't seem the type to mingle with the other more whimsical-seeming jvloggers.
especially Connor, I can see them annoying each other.
It's nothing dramatic. It's that Dogen is pretty a middle aged family man (in spirit since he's only mid 30s) who acts his age if not older and enjoys Japan from a culture standpoint and is like the only Jvlogger who took learning the language seriously and actually interacted with Japanese people. 90% of the whimsical Jvloggers are young or in perpetual adolescence like how Sharla was described and their interest in Japan is superficial because it's mostly about anime or food or that they were just too weird in the west and thought Japan was a place where weirdos can be accepted. Chris is actually kind of a bridge between these two groups and he more or less can fit in with almost any Jvlog channel other than something that's overly cutesy or marketed towards women I guess. Dogen vs Whimsical vloggers might as well be old British historian talking about medieval history vs Harry Potter fan channels. The audience gap is just too wide even if they're both British content. >>262566
I'm surprised he was there and didn't meltdown. What ever happened to him becoming a pilot? Maybe the stress of that is why he looks like a mess. >>262552
Sharla got away with breaking the law. I doubt there's anything that's going to happen to her now. I just hope she learned her lesson though she has kind of a bad attitude so I doubt she learned anything.
Sam is here for sure and uses our thread for material, but OP is Lily sperg

Still friendly with Norm even after all the shit that he's done and that they definitely know about. I'm thinking that they don't care at all about his shit and likely aren't much different. Chris likes that bald and bankrupt guy after all.
File: 1667224432920.png (1.72 MB, 1080x777, Screenshot_20220902-231241.png)
Chris was following bald and bankrupt on his IG and likely on his other socials too.
File: 1667224759101.png (1.65 MB, 1080x1288, Screenshot_20221030-193052.png)
P.S. I guess he unfollowed him after that post on his subreddit.
File: 1667270181607.jpeg (420.59 KB, 1267x1525, 7391B939-D5E2-4769-9ACA-51605D…)
To finally out to bed the Santorini debate …
Weren't anons saying in March that these photos existed before 2022 though, not 2022 summer? They were in Britain this past summer.
Also this doesn't matter as far as products go. Anons already said she was in Greece, that wasn't the debate.
No anon said anything about Greece in March! lol. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Covid kept Chris from returning to the UK since 2019. May 2022 was the first time he left Japan and they went to Greece together during that trip.
Greece was still being disputed, because some people were saying that she only said she went to Greece but not when. so her post clarifies once and for all that did she go to Greece summer of 2022, as discussed on here Back in June.
Actually anon, my argument has always been that someone from their inner circle spreads shit here, and the redditfags run with it.
Wasn’t one of the original santorini san posts like ‘trust me I just know
Then someone with autism starts comparing white walls/apartments? And it magically turns out to be true?
Either that or someone literally stalks their every social media post
This actually kinda proves my point that someone who knows them posted here saying that they were in Santorini.
But they did go elsewhere after Cornwall anon so they probably were there this year, even if those pics are old. (don’t come at me, I was a denier too)
File: 1667328134617.jpeg (147.18 KB, 1267x843, C7BD8B0A-6F41-4D00-A271-E2ECFC…)
Lol what? You’re an idiot. She literally said we went to Greece this summer, This year 2022. She only went to Europe once this summer with Chris, her Boyfriend, connect the dots use your brain. It’s clear that they went on a romantic trip together in Greece it’s not that big of a deal I don’t know why you want to fight it.
File: 1667328636281.jpeg (967.16 KB, 2048x2048, 6870CDB3-3695-4F26-8B27-96194B…)
I don’t know why y’all like to fight every thing.
she post a picture of of Greece a couple of weeks ago. And more recently she said in her comment section “we went to Greece this summer.” Why is it a debate that it wasn’t this year?lol
Also we were just guessing that her original picture of her skin care products may have been Santorini, based on the white walls, but we really didn’t have any solid proof, it was just a guess, a hunch.
But later, months later Sharla herself confirmed that she was actually in Greece.
Thus proving the theory right, it doesn’t have to be a mole or an insider, it’s just people using their brain, like you guys should try to start doing instead of arguing and denying everything
File: 1667336715930.jpeg (1.32 MB, 1284x1861, 6FB5F8E4-9244-4486-878E-146D89…)
Yes they are! What the hell is wrong with you? She posted that picture June 12 of this year!
File: 1667337406371.jpg (1.74 MB, 1295x3453, ACriticInJapan.jpg)
So Chris' subreddit had a big thread where they released their unpopular opinions. A lot of the criticism was just backlash to his new style and too many collabs. As well most were strongly against JAJ 4.
Surprisingly Chris didn't Norm out and responded well. He even admitted JAJ 4: Okinawa was terrible and that he learned his lesson to not make lazy content like that as well not to rely on collabs as much.
His fitness videos also seem to be decently well liked. I'm honestly impressed with how much Chris has matured and developed in the past half year. I think it's that he's actually taking fitness seriously now which has mental benefits too.

In case some of the simps are still arguing that they don’t live together
It's a plushie you idiots
There apartment is so disgusting!
Sharla we know you come here, so a PSA
throw some shit away! Stop buying those ugly plushies, your place is gross!
i wonder what chris's fursona could be
maybe a cat too to match sharla kekk
Like those two people said >>262901 >>262902
his behaviour has been on display in his vids for years. There's no way that Chris didn't know about it. If that's the type of guy that's one of his favourite YouTubers and that he followed on social media and recommended to his viewers… >>262914
The obsessed schizo fans are just upset that their precious jvlogger couple had a shitty start to their relationship and that their precious jvlogger queen is not as sweet and wholesome as she makes out to be and has done a bunch of cunty shit. I'm pretty sure that some of her friends have been posting here too.>>264548
Her entire personality has always been "I live in Japan, I like cats, Pokémon and gachapon kawaii shit."

File: 1668273404139.jpg (1.26 MB, 1440x2391, AbroadinVolcano.jpg)
I suppose she was always like that but it's a bit sad that she doesn't have anything else going for herself. Chris is the only thing keeping her from being a cat lady. She's very lucky to have him and shouldn't take for granted that the biggest jvlogger and emerging chad is doing so much for her.
Speaking of Chris looks like he just did another huge challenge to silence the haters that say he won't be fit. He actually likes fitness now so it'll only increase. The scary thing is doing this trek at the beginning of the year probably would have killed him considering he had to turn down similar offers. The disparity between the two Chris's old and new grows more everyday.
Yeah most likely will end up in a slump again during/after Christmas
But we'll see if he sticks with it or not. I'm guessing not as he'll be back in the UK for Christmas apparently and will definitely be gorging himself on all those fried foods and full breakfasts and he won't have anyone to keep him accountable
But again, we'll see, since this isn't the first time he'd yo-yo on his fitness plans
Bet S will push him to go back to gain weight.
Girl gonna stop Chris from realizing he can do better.
Sharla is really lucky that she was his "celebrity" crush from before he made it big. Unless Chris relapses into food I don't see her coasting on everything that isn't cat related being a good sign. >>265490
Chris has a lot going for him though.
I can't remember if he was being serious or cheeky, but didn't Chris also say that he'd have a 6-pack the next time he saw Connor?
Chris really doesn't understand what it takes to lose weight, nor does he understand the timeline it'll take.
Maybe working with former K1 Champ Nick Pettas, he can get into a decent routine.
I still think he's not going to be able to stick with it, but we'll see.
I agree with you about him only doing this for "content" rather than for his own good
How do you know, she didn’t get her cat from a pet shop?
Spoiler she did
Oh god please shut up, all of you. Why the fuck are you arguing over where Sharla got her cat?
Stop taking the obvious bait
The hell are you even talking about? There are many cat shelters and rescue organizations across Japan. Sharla's been involved with them herself and has friends who've worked with them as well.
Sharla always condemned pet shops, but bought a cat from one right after going vegan. She ordered egg product and ate fish right after going vegan for ethical and health reasons. Point is, while she was constantly complaining and preaching about being vegan, she never actually committed to being vegan and this is what annoyed not just anons here but her own fans because it was like she was only doing it for the camera and Taylor. If you're still skeptical, just read the first thread >>>/snow/29300
She was called a fake vegan by Mimei and PDR ffs, and they would know. People would be less critical of her if she hadn't been so insufferable or actually tried being vegan and just struggled. It's the same with her recent weight complaints. She's complains about how strict her diet is despite drinking sugaring starbucks and regularly eating junk according to her own channel and insta.
Buying a dog/cat from a pet shop is a cunt thing to do overall; doesn't matter if you're vegan or not (the vegan thing just makes it more hypocritical).
Maybe buying pet shop animal is socially acceptable in asian countries who dont give a fuck about animals, but in western countries it's considered 100% unethical and you'll get backlash for admitting that you did. It's why the phrase 'adopt don't shop' is a thing.(this is Japan)
isn't her pet shop cat remedial? i thought it had signs of being inbred; like a strange tail or something. That cat came from some sort of fucked up source.
plus its a scottish fold too, even breeding those for their genetic mutation for the sake of it being "cute" is fucked up in the first place
just get a cat from a shelter, that pet shop got that cat from a fucked breeder
It's not just Sharla who likes Elon, Chris is a fan of him too
Bunch of morons
Na I bet they just moved the I bet.
It has a personal altar kek
Not really. At least in the podcast (Nov 13th episode at around 00:20:00), he danced around saying anything actually negative.
Sharla probably has no opinion and only had it because of Chris.
That's the podcast in general. Pete says something progressive out of nowhere and then Chris gets super uncomfortable and tries to walk it back in a way that doesn't egg Pete on to defend his position. My favourite of these was when Pete complained about PewDiePies latest controversy years ago and Chris got so nervous because he had to walk the line between not siding with PewDiePie but also leaving the collab possibility open as PewDiePie is huge. Pete kind of saves the podcast from being too scripted and corporate.
Chris definitely does enjoy Elon like he enjoys Bald and Bankrupt. He likes those showy wannabe alpha scrote types. Sharla I doubt actually cares she's just following Chris and probably just wants to have more than cats to add to her personality. There's really nothing about her that shows any investment in tech and Musk worship is mostly a scrote thing tbh. Chris is definitely in that youtubery Elon worship pretend tech bro sphere.

File: 1668716233603.png (1.64 MB, 1080x603, Screenshot_20221117-195406.png)
p.s. it was in her "I went to a crazy bar in Japan vid.(2019 cardboard Elon is not milk)
You guys are inviting scrotes here
Go to OT about Elon. Posting 2019 shit isn't new milk and that's the extent of this too.
And how do you know that she was memeing and doesn't just genuinely like him? Also no one said that this shit was milk.>>266494
Any time there is a discussion about Sharla like her friendship with Norm, her illegally digging for ancient pottery and lying about it, and now this, anons immediately try to shut it down or claim it's vendetta posting. The bias toward her in this thread is so fucking obvious.
Like I said, no one was saying that it was milk. I wasn't trying to start a discussion, a couple of anons said that she didn't seem like she would be into Elon and one said that she probably only had the wall pic because of Chris >>266364
so I replied that she actually was his fan with proof, that's all.
Shame that none of the mods could be bothered to redtext the anons who were wasting up the thread with their witch-hunt against Chris's ex.>Also that doesn't prove that any of them are a fan.
Did you miss these tweets? >>266446
You're assuming that she owns those things because she's memeing.
You'd think that, but Chris hangs out with PDP all the time now even without being in his vids. He's okay with being controversial when he endorses people like Bald and Bankrupt. I think it's fairly likely Chris is closer to the mindset of those guys and Norm than he is to Pete. Though I doubt he'd ever say his real thoughts out loud when it comes up because he'd look bad and probably upset Pete.
The podcast audience is way different from his YouTube audience and way way different from the audience he's been trying to court this year. The podcast is mostly 20-50 year olds who want to visit Japan and are fairly serious where as he's trying to turn his YouTube to have more of the zany TrashTaste teenage scrote memelord audience.
he's playing a dangerous game where he's hell bent on getting more subscribers, so much so that he's willing to change the type of content he'll do in order to appeal to a new more fringe group of potential subscribers.
The big risk is the alienation of his current audience, which is much larger than this new audience he's trying to reach.
File: 1668820021154.jpeg (999.62 KB, 828x1461, 1667004723442.jpeg)
Instagram as well you can sometimes find glipses of Chris in PDPs Jvlogs. Chris also talks about PDP on trash taste. >>266610
I wouldn't say it's bigger but more dedicated. But it's pretty risky to try to swap a dedicated fanbase of adults who will watch and listen to the podcast forever if it holds up with the younger streamer hyper youtubery crowd that'll probably want a different kind of content after a year or so. But I think a big part of it is he wants to diversify so he doesn't have to be in Japan anymore. If it wouldn't kill his career he'd probably be back in England full time by now.
Though I think he should consider doing similar content about other countries if he's bored of Japan. Or maybe do something like bring Natsuki on a US road trip.

Sharla and her lover chris out there leaving breadcrumbs
not hard to see how he ended up that way. Japan is often a place where it's cheaper to eat out than cook for yourself and the quality of food is worlds apart, particularly if you can't cook worth a damn.
Makes you wonder what other crucial life skills he never developed. You only see the best of Chris that makes it through the carefully curated editing process.
Maybe not so crucial but he has admitted he bad at anything manual.
Sharla also said (back when not revealed that she was with him) that he's terrible at fixing anything if requires his hands.
I think it was in a YouTube comment when viewer said she should ask Chris if he can help in the process of upgrading the house she and her friend brought.
He's the guy that cant hammer a nail it seems.
Like Lily a few weeks ago. She's so old yet only just learned to cook. Absolutely embarrassing.
Japan is one of the few countries words expected for you to almost always buy your food out. It's rare that people constantly cook in house.
I doubt it's cheaper to eat out all the time than cook for himself.
If he is also trying to get in shape and be healthier, he'll have to start cooking for himself rather than going out and eating oily and fried foods all the time. But we'll see what happens after his December trip back to the UK.
Probably will fall off the wagon and go back to his old habits when eating. Sharla looking a bit pudgier too in that video
File: 1668907136432.jpg (147.46 KB, 1080x977, Screenshot_20221119_171748_Chr…)
It is though. Maybe watch actual videos by Japanese people. It's so uncommon for people to cook with the price of fresh produce and meat in Japan. Been like this for years. Most grab breakfast on the way in and lunch. Dinner is at most what people cook, maybe 3 times a week. Families are a little better but because of the control over what your children can eat aside from school lunch.
Not going to derail about this anymore, but do real research, don't watch white youtubers. A massive 14% barely cook every 6 months. This is why 7-11s and restaurants are so expansive there. Its massively cheaper to get food out, freshly prepared, than to cook at home.
I'm Japanese and lived in Japan, nonnie
, and while you shouldn't be basing your knowledge on youtube (which you call research lol), there are thousands upon thousands of videos of regular Japanese people cooking on youtube,and many many cooking shows, so I still don't understand how you're getting the idea that Japanese people don't cook from youtube. Your weirdly cropped survey also doesn't state the sample size, where it comes from, and if people know know how to cook or not. Why do Chris and Sharla fans keep making up fake facts about Japan?
Use Google you idiot. This isn't just based on Youtubers. Anon was wrong that most people cook at home with a whopping 64% who rarely do. This has nothing to do if anyone can cook who do try to cook. Just proving >>266866
That's a fair question, anon. But I would recommend you proofread your replies in the future since your comment is dog's dinner basically.
You can check this video. Skip to 1:14
Chris Broad: "The only saving grace is, as well as getting fit, provided we survive, we are going to be raising money for a fantastic charity called the Immune Decificiency Foundation. They've done an incredible job helping Connor's wife and fellow twitch streamer Ironmouse, over the last few years"
Am I missing something?
Why would you ss a survey, crop all relevant info including what it’s about, and not provide a link to where it came from? This is lolcow, nonnie
. Not our job to google anything. For all we know, it could be how often people stub their toe. Even if we take anon at their word, the comment was that most Japanese guys Chris' age can cook more than he can and it's not expected that you eat take out all the time. Nothing in that survey disproves anything and it doesn't even prove that most people eat out everyday. If anything, it proves most people can cook. Most old Japanese men have housewives who do all the cooking for the family, which would largely account for the 14% who rarely cook, and that still doesn't indicate that people are eating take out all the time.>>266961
First it's Japan doesn't have cat shelters and orgs, when even Sharla's volunteered with them and as a friend who runs one. Now it's no one cooks in Japan.
People thought Chris and Connor were a couple before Sharla came out with their relationship. So Chris was being a little cheeky by mentioning the other person Connor is always hanging out with. >>266797
So this might be a dumb question but why do they even bother with TC? The channel is 99% dead, they claim it's not visa related, Okano Chris destroyed the company, and most of the videos they make seem like they are held hostage against their will. The only one who seems to benefit from it is TokiDoki Emma who mostly posts on that channel over her own.>>266835>>266870
Lily can cook French and European dishes. Of the three of them she also has the most real world skills and even is able to program. She's capable of staying in shape without making it an event for views. Not really sure why she's used as a bad example. That said I don't blame Chris for not being able to cook though he's wealthy from YouTube and Lily used to cook delicious meals for him. He doesn't have someone who will cook tasty meals for him anymore and he doesn't want to spend so much money needlessly so that's why he's learning to cook.
Is Lily the chef of the year??? Who says??? LOL
I don't think she's a great chef honestly as well
Doesn't sound like a healthy friendship if they're just exploiting Chris for views. Also youtube is the queen of social media. Twitch, twitter, tiktok, snapchat, facebook, podcast, instagram etc celebs all try to pivot some of their success to youtube. Emmas big on Twitch but TC is is sucking up her youtube potential. Though I guess maybe she just likes spending time with Chris. Too bad they never had a chance to go for it because I think they balance eachother well.>>267078
Lily is a great chef. She made great food which is why Chris never learned to cook. He'd either buy food with with fortune or Lily would cook for him for free. I don't see him ever becoming a chef.
Hello, I'm a long term Abroad in Japan "Stan" in both the YouTube spectrum as well as the Podcast. For years Chris Broad has bragged about his ability to create the perfect omelet and even said its the only thing he can cook and he can cook it well. See?
In the linked video (YouTube video) - Chris Broad of Abroad in Japan sets out to create an omelet for his partner, the fat Sharla In Japan. And yet - when he starts to make it, he has to LOOK IT UP on YouTube!
If he knew how to cook it so well, as he has bragged about on numerous occasions on the podcast as well as his videos and live streams across the YouTube spectrum of video entertainment, then why can't he just go to work on the omelet without looking it up first? Let's be honest - Chris is quite full of "shit" as they say, which is a popular expression to explain that someone isn't truthful quite frequently!
This is an image board. Nonny
is off topic and derailing if all they're doing is posting a random image that doesn't indicate what it's about and where it came from.
It was already explained multiple times why the image was a problem. If you didn't keep protesting, talk would've ended there.>>267043
It was a joke, but your question belongs in the Trash Taste thread. They could explain the context to you.
Yes you're right - they're different omelets. Then I don't get why Chris didn't just make it into a western omelet instead of mashing it all up into scrambled eggs lol….
Also did you SEE the amount of seaweed he put in the miso soup? Without rinsing it too. Then he like, tried to cut it with scissors. It was so embarrassing.

Adding, it's taken directly from a store-sold sealed package.
it's stored in water/brine for shipping and sales. of course you don't HAVE to rinse it - but not rinsing it is gross nonnie
. you do you.

Bald and bankrupt is in Japan now apparently. Wonder if Chris will actually collab with him.
NGL I read this and could hear Chris's voice, you captured it perfectly.
IMO - Too bad Chris's taste is outdated and boring. His editing is stuck in the 2010s, his music taste is from the 80s and devoid of an actual personality, and he is dull enough to not branch out or deem the unknown as 'bad'.
His content could benefit from more curiosity, he's got solid concepts but it all falls flat when he just does the same thing he's been doing all along. Ludwig critiqued someone's channel on his charity stream (as a paid
request) and advised this person to change it up as their content didn't evolve over time.
If Chris wants to increase viewership he'd truly benefit from updating his boring format of outdated graphics/corny voiceovers and his malding, unpleasant persona over his genuine charisma.
, work on it.
I don't think the point was to "gatekeep city pop" anon.. it was to point out Chris has a narrow field of vision for someone with the clout he has regarding being some kind of expert on Japanese culture after being there for ten years
Also what is up with male youtuber/influencers trying to become boxers/fighters? First Logan comes to Japan and shits all over the country then him and his brother get into this fighting thing, followed by tons of others.
Now Chris? What is the deal? Am I alone in thinking its super freaking disappointing to see him jumping on this bandwagon? It is it a desperate cry for relevancy or what?
he's always seemed kind of wimpy to me. like the kind of guy if someone threw a punch he'd flinch and cower. it's just weird to see him tryna flex like he's tough now (obstacle course races, bike ride, fighting) I kinda wonder if Sharla has been making comments about him not being manly enough…
and before anyone says "he's always ridden bikes, like journey across Japan 1" — when he did that ride he got a mountain bike to do a long distance km ride, and wore a helmet that fit him like a Childs helmet, he wore street clothes, he had no idea what he was doing and it was embarrassing…. he looked like a child learning to ride with training wheels riding bikes in the park on a Saturday afternoon.
on his new ride he at least had a road bike and the proper apparel.
you don't need to do a YouTube boxing match to "turn around" your health and lose weight nonnie
it's a weird clout chasing move that seems uncharacteristic for him
idiot he has to train for it, thus a health journey. don't watch the chess boxing match if its against your lofty standards, of how youtuber should behave
everyone including the tt boys went to LA for clout, but god forbid chris doesn't diff>>267798
Literally all I listen to while coding is Citypop compilations and I can't name more than two or three artists that go into these compilations.
Chill with the nitpicks.
Can you literally name any other Japanese music though?
The fact that people are like "yeah I like Japanese music… durrrr durrrrr "City Pop" durrrr durrrrr"
is really really sad tbh
is right. This is just some dumb nitpicking for no reason.
That's Chris, except he says he hates Japanese music heh (35:30 & 44:49).
He says all the lyrics are the same, then proceeds to list a bunch of basic words. Probably the only Japanese he can understand.

Poor Sharla, the weight gain has been massive for her, she’s gone from a size uk8-10 to at least 14 in a short space of time. She needs to get on that treadmill and change her diet
Not fat shaming here, I’ve had to learn the hard way myself

So we have confirmation Mr Broad will endorse right wing sexist ideology.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
It's not exactly endorsing, but Broad could have easily just not met up with this guy.
Guy has enough rumours and bad comments about him that Broad must have heard about and is wilfully ignoring them, no way to not know of any of it if he has looked him up at all
Curious how he'll try and justify this meeting
Also, is American Pete a fan of him too or is he just caught up in this?
lmao good job chris
This dude had a rape case thrown out due to a small technicality, claimed to bribe young Byelorussian hitchhiker for a blowjob for $6 or he'd leave her in the woods, has a bad history on pickup artist forums, finds babushka groups to talk to so the babushkas will tell their (grand)daughters to go talk to the new rich foreigner, etc.
Birds of a feather flock together kek
Finally milk of something.
Chris could indeed lose trust of some viewers if he does a collab or something with that individual.
they're each other's worst enemey kek
they're like crabs in a bucket pulling each other down when it comes to food
It's definitely not the best sign. Chris is getting fit and Sharla is getting bigger and bigger. I've seen this a million times. Guy has a mid life crisis in his 30s gets in shape starts to look at life differently wants to bring his partner on to join the journey she doesn't want to get fit seriously and then the relationship ends. If I was Sharla I'd be nervous and start hitting the gym especially with how abruptly he left Lily. I mean I doubt Chris is gonna come back from mountain climbing wanting to hear how Sharla bought a bunch of cat paraphernalia to clog up the apartment more and doesn't want to go for a bike ride with him. >>268298
Chris was always right wing and okay with problematic
people. It's obvious if you watch the podcast. He gets really awkward and clearly irritated with Pete whenever he says anything remotely progressive. His favourite book is Tokyo Vice about wannabe tough guy Jake Adelstein. Plus we all know Norm is his soulmate just that Norm doesn't have the restaint to dress up meltdowns as quirky British sarcasm. The only thing that would prevent him from doing a full collab is his chasing of analytics and ad revenue. >>268324
Black is to make you look thinner but Chris wears it to look cool. Whatever else he's actually succeeding at weight loss this time around.

Apparently Chris is a superfan of BandB who watches all his videos. It's likely Chris begged Bald for the collab. With Chris moving towards fitness and away from Sharla it wouldn't surprise me if he was trying to incorporate BandBs PUA nonsense into his repertoire.
I really don't see S changing her lifestyle notably.
Bet she'll try to join him but grow tired and will just want to be with her cats and get pokemon stuff.
C just needs to meet more people that push him to keep his positive changes and well bye S .

You have some example for this?
I don't listen to the podcast so not sure how candid he is on that compared to his videos (not sure about the livestreams since I'm not going to sit through a 2 hour video of him just answering fan questions)
I'm not a scrote and I'm not this anon >>268298>>268389
Norm wasn't even there so what are you talking about?
File: 1669554012174.jpg (730.77 KB, 1440x3839, TokyoLens.jpg)
What bizarre ways to defend Chris for supporting a legitimate predator.
Anyways the unthinkable happened. Backlash against Bald was so bad on the sub that they decided to no longer filter out Norm criticism anymore. I think it's also obvious that Chris knows about the backlash. We know he has reacted to things posted here before and he definitely reacts to his subreddit (though he choose to ignore several posts warning him not to hang out with Bald and Bankrupt). Ironically Norm might actually lose the most from this since Chris wasn't overt enough but they decided to feed Norm to the wolves.
Chris already replied on Reddit. Seems like a reasonable explanation. Still, the hungry dogs of the subreddit and this toxic
thread will feast on this pointless gossip until it’s forgotten next week.
Chris has never expressed right-wing opinions. He's said multiple times how tiresome he finds the Japanese nationalist far right types. He's spoken on many occasions about being supportive of LGBT and minorities. He was Remain not Brexit.
Put up a single actual receipt of him expressing anything right wing. Otherwise you're just shitposting.
Several people: Hey Chris you might not want to associate with this predator who should probably be in jail that you're promoting.
Chris hangs out with him anyways
Chris faces obvious backlash
Chris: OMg I totally didn't know he was bad. Trust me.
Either way if it's judge of character alone were going about then his association with Norm already puts 99% of the posters here as better judges of characters than him. Chris should probably stick to his Jvlog niche considering how poorly he navigated this. Mainstream youtubers have more eyes on them for much lighter activity than what Chris tried to do.
And this is why that previous anon who said that Chris was having a "midlife" crisis is a low-IQ autistic teen, most likely. A guy entering his 30s is still 20 years away from a midlife crisis type behaviors. Chris is finally trying to outgrow his very prolonged adolescence (running off to Japan to be a JET because you can't handle growing your ass up in your home country and then falling backwards into a YouTube "career" is the most 21st century prolonged adolescence for a UK youth, everrrrrr) and he's hitting some roadblocks especially in who he's choosing to associate with…..
Weirdly he's foregrounded his body as his main project when he probably should be looking harder at his social network.
Chris literally helped him make a video and constantly promoted him. Please stop making the grown scote into just a helpless child who was entrapped or something. People constantly warned him about Bald and Bankrupt just lik he was constantly warned about Norm.>>268643
He's a total stoic who doesn't care what others think. Which is why he lied for years about dating Sharla and cheating on Lily, took down videos because of analytics, and was really upset when people told him JAJ4 was terrible. Nah he's super focused on what people think. Modern PewDiePie is a creator who doesn't care what people think. >>268647
I doubt he's going to make it to 100. But either yes he's having a midlife crisis. Suddenly making drastic changes in your life is a sign. Even two podcasts ago he made it clear that he's so obviously done with this phase of his life but wants the gravy train to keep coming. It is funny that Chris is in a mid life crisis and Sharla is in arrested development stuck in her teens somewhere just focused on hoarding cat collectables.
File: 1669612813330.jpeg (622.92 KB, 1242x1924, deletedclip.jpeg)
i dont remember which livestream it was, but someone posted the clip on his subreddit but the person deleted it but you can still see people comments about it
Sharla's got her life in order:
she's got that airBnB that makes her money and also a long term investment.
she's got her youtube which she gets money from new videos and sponsorships and passive money from old videos.
she's got her stationary business.
she's got her patreon.
and she's dating/soon to be engaged to one of the most successful youtubers in japan.
Calling this arrested development is such a stretch it boggles the mind.
File: 1669626271406.png (93.93 KB, 642x852, BRS.PNG)
The stuff in his book and how it connects to the RooshV and NoughtyNomads forums under the usernames "Vorkuta" and "The Ligurian" are already on the internet tbh.
You just rephrased that she makes a lot of money in a few different ways. That doesn't have anything to do with arrested development. It's been pointed out several times that she still acts like a teenager. Look at how many wealthy celebs who make more than Sharla also have arrested development. It's not a networth thing. >>268666
Bald and Bankrupt was brought up to Chris every couple weeks for several years now. He definitely knows. I don't know why he was so adamant to still meet with him and have to scramble lies to salvage his brand from the backlash. Next he's going to be seen wearing Yeezys and hang out JBP and claim he was forced to wear the shoes because Japan doesn't sell his size and he thought JBP was just a professor. It's kind of sad he admired learning Balds PUA schtick more than he valued his own brand.
how dare someone hang out with someone that doesn't conform to my personal world view.
get help girl, imagine getting triggered
over such a nothingburger, yikes
you mean a creepy misogynist rapist? yea how dare people
you sound like a scrote trying to blend in kek
>>268663> I doubt he's going to make it to 100. But either yes he's having a midlife crisis.Nonnie
are you 17? "Midlife crisis" doesn't refer to you having a crisis at the exact middle of your lifespan. Hooollly crap what an autist. A midlife crisis is when a man is in his 40s-50s and realizes he's gotten that old and never lived his life and taken chances/risks and suddenly gets a divorce, quits his job, buys a sports car, etc.
A dude like Chris at age 31 isn't having a "midlife crisis" you dingbat. That's a totally normal age to reevaluate where you're at and make changes. One day when you grow up you'll understand.
How did you come to understand "Arrested Development" as referring to earning potential, nonnie
? It is about emotional maturity not passive income streams. If it referred to ability to earn money then 75% of the known celebrities on Earth wouldn't be insufferably immature monsters.
There's a difference between reevaluating and panicking into a bunch of dramatic changes and declarations to change your whole lifestyle. Maybe it was his health exam or returning home but something shocked Chris to do a complete 180 on his content, lifestyle, and everything this year. >>268727
Maybe he can collab with Bill Cosby next.
Also doesn't mean every single person in that photo thinks like Bald either. No one is talking about the other 2 dudes at all.>>268755>pokemon pokemon pokemon she likes cats and pokem shes living arrested development not mature because she has stuffed animals and likes disney
That's how you sound, anon.
Acquitted only because the prosecution couldn't offer enough evidence. The judge was completely disgusted with him and didn't think he was innocent. Bald also claimed online that he only had sex with the victim
once with his friend, while he told the court that he had sex with her twice. The woman reported the rape right away according his own comments as well. The man himself admitted to driving a hitchhiker to remote location and threatening to leave her if she didn't give him a bj and bragged about having sex with teen virgins who're probably no older than his own daughter. That's the man Chris has been helping.

Statement Chris gave on his subreddit about his association with Bald and Bankrupt. No mention of him helping Bald behinds the scenes. Says he didn't have a clue about the rumours, but we know that isn't true.
File: 1669681046812.jpg (42.66 KB, 959x282, Screenshot This Video Caused A…)
Chris commenting on Bald and Bankrupt's video back in July or August. Someone archived in it September. This is what caused his fans to warn him about Bald. "Mate this really was bald and bankrupt extreme. Genuinely real edge of your seat stuff throughout.
An amazing pay-off to an incredible video - though sad to see the fate that befell the Buran. Glad you guys got away from the authorities safely!"
Funny how he mentions the "comments BnB made about Tate" but avoids mentioning the comments that have been made about BnB's rape accusation(s) and other horrible behaviour
Chris is wilfully ignoring the things that have been said about the guy, and still met up with him. As good as a film maker Chris thinks BnB is, he could have just as easily avoided any contact to protect his "image".
Granted, after seeing some of the comments in the reddit thread, he has all these people defending him and he probably rides the high that he can do no wrong when so many come to defend him.

Turns out I was wrong about that. He deleted his IG account, that's why it's no longer in Chris's following list.
Chris's next video will be called "The Things I Hate About Japan"
bald was and has been discussed in chris's subreddit before, months before. Chris monitors his own sub, he 100% knew.
He got caught in an ig tag, playing stupid and will continue to play stupid until his fans forget about it.
it was brought and discussed right here >>268666
in his sub literally months ago kek
File: 1669693988226.gif (3 MB, 640x386, scrotesmell.gif)
the amount of anons here shrugging off the rapist sexpat Bald and chris hanging with him… is starting to give red flags that there's more scrotes here than I thought
Unless you guys actually produce proof, not things that are magically deleted, I'm literally gonna take Chris at his word. I'm not even a WK or stan or simp. This has to do with the fact that Chris doesn't bring this guy up constantly, >>268666
this is deleted, so no proof here either. Pete is also there. Pete was there in the UK too. Honestly seems like Pete holds the company with Bald, not everyone else just because of proximity.
>>268883>not everyone deep dives in Google's people before they meet them.
BUT BUT BUT Chris was on Deep Dive. The podcast from Japan Times. Episode 110.
And lest we forget, Chris and Sharla did Deep Dive TOGETHER in 2019 when they'd just begun dating. Episode 28. Title: "Chris Broad and Sharla — living the YouTube life in Japan" (and imagine, a full nearly three years after they did that episode together, stupid bitchy anons here were debating if they were "a couple" or not LOLOLOL fucking twats)
tHe DoTs ArE cOnNeCtInG……
lmao the nitpicking and in-fighting has gotten way worse ever since they announced they're dating. All over obvious no brain shit like them dating, when they started to date, the greek trip, now Chris playing stupid about an infamous sexpat. There's always a couple of contrarians at moments notice crying 'no proof' or 'not good enough' at obvious stuff.
And for whatever reason, other threads in /w doesn't have this problem. It's always been the jvlog thread with camped out autistic moids or twats ready to fight for their kfc couple.
Now there's proof that redditfags warned chris in his own subreddit months ago that meeting bald is a bad idea because of shit sexpat past and chris active on his sub everyday, and now even that proof isn't good enough. Nitpicker newfags always here and right on time as usual.
reminds me of this child nonnie >>261996
amazed and proud of chris's big boy step of learning how to cook for once. Even though he forgot to wash the preservative brine off the seaweed, but baby steps to basic adult living i guess kekk
I also noticed, on his recent podcast, how he was talking about the eating of DEKAI quantities of Macodonarudo.
Chris will never really change. It's like he watched a bunch of hustle culture, redpill, bodybuilding videos on youtube, decided he was going to adopt a select few ideologies, and then ran the numbers.
Boring. Sharla's fat.

Alright, my mistake.
November 27, 2022
Natsuki is a cash cow but Chris did mention how unprofessional he's been behaving lately and how it caused significant production issues that incredibly frustrated him.>>269023
He is a bit of a bro hustle culture Gary Vee personality. But he'll put work in if he feels motivated enough. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. Just somewhat annoying.
that was what, 8 threads ago? anon in >>269053
What exactly did Natsuki do that pissed off Chris or was deemed "unprofessional"?
Chris might be over his skis expecting too much from Natsuki. Natsuki isn't a "professional" YouTuber, he's a professional hair stylist and a friend. What were Chris's expectations of him anyway? He's a goofball and clearly has substance abuse issues. So what, he was fun to make fun of his English and trot him out as proof Chris has "Japanese friends" but if he acts problematic
then Chris drops him like a hot bowl of ramen?
So you're not going to explain what Natsuki has been doing that makes him unprofessional and where Chris said this?>>269124
To be fair, both can be true. Natsuki can be unprofessional and Chris could be taking advantage of him. Or Chris could've been taking advantage of him at first, but now Natsuki has developed a big head and is acting unprofessional.
If he never changed his diet that isn't much of a health kick.
Do you have any proof that he didn't change his diet? Like literal receipts from their grocery shopping? Can someone go rummage thru their bins please?
File: 1669839441266.jpeg (403.76 KB, 720x983, awsh6Mr.jpeg)
He's nowhere near that six pack.
Lmao what health kick? He eats shit constantly. He just posted a video where he eats from Mos Burger even though he doesn't even enjoy it.
He also said in the vid that he eats out every day. If he was actually trying to be healthy, surely he would be cooking at home instead.
kek at Sharla playing off camera "hostess"
also - he is happily flexing his $$$ openly now, evidence is that he used Power of Love and paid for the license.
Ryotaro is the one who ever tried to present himself in a professional space. If you look at him you get a suave connected businessman vibe and he does it well. He's the only one who's ever had a real professional job too. The rest are more independent filmmaker types and former English "teachers." I don't think it's fair to compare. >>269195
Connor can dress well if he wants to. He has a lot of pics of him dressing nicely. But right now he's at the phase where he'll be okay wearing the trash taste t shirt for the memes. Chris will just wear all black or dr jelly merch. >>269197
Let's be honest he's never going to learn how to cook or at least cook consistently. He has millions of dollars and is in a top three culinary country so he's happy just ordering out for every meal.
On a side note I'd love for Chris to go to France or Italy or Korea or even trendy parts of Japan or something and come back learning how to cook and dress well. He actually could be pretty amazing if he put more effort into it.
She’s trying to be a cool girl/one of the guys by putting no effort into her clothes.
She only dresses up nicely when she’s hanging out with a group of women, which seems to be increasingly rare for her.
Natsuki is a heavy smoker. That culture tells men it's okay to be a chainsmoker and alcoholic. Combined with the stress of having less business after the pandemic (Is Japan still closed borders?)
Natsuki is probably stress smoking and the constant delays for shooting are making Chris not want to see him as much. Natsuki is also a workaholic who seems to work 6-7 days a week.

Sharla getting a "heftier" head here, compared to older photos. And her hoodies get baggier and baggier with each picture posted
Chris' nose looks like it's getting that permanent red alcoholic nose. He's also got that receding hairline kicking in.
lily did your California bf breakup with your crazy ass already?
the covid got you posting here a lot I see
People always talk about Chris' health but it's a bit worrying that Sharla seems to be worse off on that front. She's never been skinny but the gain is very rapid and she has the health condition. I hope it's not too severe. >>269226
His health report was bad but the videos show he's at leasy physically capable of things. I'd be surprised if he ever gets that six pack but he isn't on the verge of dying anymore. He's the healthy and fit one in his relationship. >>269250
I don't know why you think cooking and dressing well are hard. It just takes a little effort. I think Chris just needs to put himself out there. I thinks Chris should grow his hair out, wear better clothes, stop wearing so much black, stop dyeing your hair black, and of course learn to cook and cook at least half his meals. His life would be better.
Yes lily , you have said it like 100 times!
Sharla is fat
Chris can’t cook and fat
His hair is receding
Now keep writing this over and over
We love to see the rinse repeat

His statement conveniently leaves out the SA allegations and predatory behaviour of Bald and Bankrupt, just mentions the comments he's made about Andrew "probably a rapist" Tate. He mentions some of his other politics, but definitely steers clear of mentioning the predatory stuff about Bald
>>269406>I give him and Sharla less than a year before they leave Japan, but the question is - what will they do for money?
If Chris actually took film making more serious, he would have branched out into non-JVlogger content way earlier on and have that as part of his video resume. He's talked about being a director and wanting to shoot movies, but never does anything to capitalize on it, other than that 5 minute intro to JAJ:Okinawa.
They're either both far too ingrained into making videos about Japan to leave now or just have no idea on what other kinds of videos to make
I think Chris just romanticizes being a director - he doesn't seem to understand what that workload is actually like.
I think it's pretty clear that what he really desires is to be hired by BBC or some other big media company to be a presenter like James May. How could he ever direct a movie where his main source of content isn't him mugging at the camera and playing a trombone sound effect every three minutes?
I honestly doubt they'd ever work outside of youtube. These are two people clearly not built for a real job. Sharla is pushing 40 and has no actual skills for the workplace outside of maybe a cat shelter. Chris might have some talent filming and editing but he loses motivation fast look at the Okinawa series and frankly every journey across japan that falls apart release schedule wise even though the first Okinawa post was half a year after filming. There's a reason Chris is pushing himself to have generic YouTuber content and working chessboxing with Ludwig, gaming with PremierTwo, and random fitness. He's looking to see what sticks. >>269424
Every youtuber always puffs up that they want to be a real filmmaker. Most of them have no ability or talent for it. The biggest example would be those terrible channel awesome movies or the Angry videogame nerd going massively into debt to finance a movie everyone hated. Not optimistic about Chris Stuckmann's movie either especially after Zods snapped neck. His best bet would be something with documentaries and he's tried it. Maybe it could work for him but he stopped pursuing it because they didn't go viral enough. He's weak as a host for documentaries though as we've seen in Cat Nation. >>269422
He knows and he's lying. I mean this guy not only lied but forced everyone he knew to edit their content and he monitored online threads to cover up that he was dating Sharla and cheated on Lily for several years. He has no problem lying especially to his audience. I honestly can't imagine how paranoid and two faced you must be to do something like that.
Agreed Anon, Chris gaslights his viewers gently; Plays the bumbling British fool a la David Brent in an attempt to fool us
Steering the ship away from this - During yesterdays podcast he said something along the lines of “I wouldn’t want my kids to…” or something similar which gave the impression he’s not opposed to having them.
I don't think Chris actually wants to leave Japan, I think Sharla is pushing Chris to leave Japan. I mean compare both of their experiences. Chris was kind of a loser in the UK and just worked a bad office job and didn't even want to go to university and is upset with how rundown everything is. In Japan he's pretty much a king and as >>269450
noted even PewDiePie worships him there.
Sharla meanwhile was popular in Canada and spent a lot of her time as a youtuber outside of Japan. She doesn't particularly seem to like Japan or have much of a connection or base there. She only will be in the expat bubble doing generic things. She's almost 40 now so she's probably tired of Japan and the expat life. It's not really a surprise that Chris is making a huge effort this year to diversify almost out of nowhere maybe it's Sharla pushing him to leave Japan now that they're serious.>>269457>>269462
Chris seems to sacrifice a lot for her. From the cat allergy to possibly kids and Japan. It's not really healthy. One day he'll wake up and wonder why he sacrificed his career to live in a British loft with ten cats. He hasn't had much luck dating tbh. He didn't work well with Japanese girls, Lily was a crazy stalker, and Sharla is restricting his life. But I think if he sticks with his fitness kick he'll find someone who is a good match. I always liked the idea of him dating Emma though.
"Sharla meanwhile was popular in Canada"
She was a nobody in Canada, things only changed when she moved to Japan and started doing youtube.(lolcow.farm/info)
He seems to have had a good relationship with his ex who joined him on the cycle across Japan.
Lily was a fangirl and a bit unstable yeah, but she didn't stalk him. He was the one who initiated the relationship. He shouldn't have had a relationship with a fan and used them.
Isn't Emma gay?
Emma is ~pansexual~ iirc. She was in a long-term relationship w an American guy who left Japan to go to back to uni.
I don’t get why people think that she and Chris would be a good couple though. She always talks about having mental breakdowns and he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to put up with that.
>>269477>Post the fucking podcasts. This is an imageboard.
podcasts are not images. you can listen to his podcast on literally any pod service. it's called "abroad in Japan podcast" you dimwit

How are these people actually considered adults?
Sharla says her suitcase is too full of xmas presents so she has no room for clothes and will just have to buy all new clothes. kek have they never heard of getting another suitcase? or shipping a box to Canada so they can have their clothes after the suitcases are empty of the gifts? OR SHIPPING THE GIFTS?
How do these people function?

Of course she wants new clothes, she's grown out of everything she used to wear. >>269585
She's not been posting a lot either, I really do think she's lost a lot of interest in being a Youtube personality. I don't blame her, I'd find it pretty draining and annoying too. She's putting Chris in the thumbnails because it is what works, same reason why Tokyo Creative milks him any chance they get. Just look at the views here, they take that Chris bump every chance they get.
Chris and Pete are wearing the same clothes at the pub in Tokyo that they were wearing with Bald and Ben when they had drinks in Tokyo. >>268339
We know Chris doesn't have many outfits, but Bald and Ben were in Tokyo at that same time that Chris was there with Sharla.
It might be from an abandoned building in Yamagata since Sharla was tweeting photos from Nishizaou Bussaritou. I think Chris may be releasing another video about abandoned buildings in Japan.>>269643
Sharla was Chris in Tokyo at the time that he was meeting with Bald. Chris has repeatedly expressed his admiration for Bald and he's a famous vlogger, so it's interesting that he took Pete with him for their chat instead. Suggests Sharla maybe didn't want to meet Bald or she was there, but didn't want to be on camera. I think the former.
