No. 262619

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.

No. 262625

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.
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.
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.

Lol the way Sharla stans talk about Lily you'd think she was a serial killer or something. In the end she was in the right the entire time. All she did was stand up for herself after she found out her ex bf cheated on her and the new gf tried to get her blacklisted from all her friends. Most people would be more upset than just a single tweet over that. In fact it's pretty admirable how well Lily took everything.

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. 263146

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.

No. 263168

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 they’re there?’
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

No. 263169

But no one went to Greece this year from the looks of it. Anon was posting product photos and claiming they were from Santorini specifically before June, but that doesn't make sense if they are now calling it this year. She went to Greece in general, how's this matter at all and we can't prove Chris was even there either.

No. 263172

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)

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.

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

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.

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 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.

No. 265448

You gotta stop putting these people into boxes because the 2nd he stops working out or he gains a little weight you guys are gonna be freaking out about how hes fat and how he can't do anything. Same thing with Charlotte being vegan, apparently she's not allowed to ever not be vegan.

No. 265454

The anon who likes to call Chris a chad is just outting themselves as someone who doesn't exercise. You can praise Chris for his recent achievements, but he's only been doing this for a couple of months and no one knows if this is going to be something he will continue for years down the line so best not get ahead of yourself. Sharla's problem was that she constantly overemphasized her veganness and was insufferable from Day 1 of her fake vegan phase when she was secretly never vegan. Go back to our first thread and you'll see.

No. 265456

Do y'all really think Chris is just going to give up and stop working out? He said it himself that he was on the verge of death's door knocking and had a wakeup call. It's not just about being trendy and fit it's about Chris saving his own life. We all make mistakes and falter now and then but I think Chris has finally actually learned his lesson. Especially since he obviously wants to transition away from lazy Japan content and onto more active adventurous Japan content.

No. 265459

>Do y'all really think Chris is just going to give up and stop working out?
That's what's happened every time he's done something like this so better to wait and see than assume it's going to be different this time. It'd be great if it becomes a permanent change, but it's only been three months.

No. 265469

And to be honest most normal people don't do all this high energy stuff especially as it's coming up into the Winter winds gonna be really cold. Anon's need to just stop in it picking overweight all because hes doing some events. It's so stupid because they're just going to complain if he gains weight.

No. 265470

You literally can't prove whether or not she was ever vegan. Acting as if she was pretending she was when she wasn't is pretty stupid. People change their diet all the time especially when you have things like a thyroid disorder.

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

Hate to admit it but you might be right if he's going back to the UK. He relapsed hard when he went with Sharla this year and had a breakdown on twitter over the weight gain and disappointment. The UK and being alone with Sharla are the two biggest factord in his binge eating. I just hope he's strong enough to avoid temptation now.

He was eating fried chicken and french fries just the other day. He's lost some weight, but he clearly wasn't serious about the bet he made. Since the money goes to charity, Chris' simps will still think he's a chad if he loses.

I mean, good for him, but I honestly think he's doing it to prove something & content, rather than health.

No. 265496


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.

Anons take stuff so literally and then create this whole made-up storyline to go with it. Good, let him eat fries and chicken. You want him to eat only salads or something or just turkey? The logic you have is absolutely bonkers.

No. 265554

>You literally can't prove whether or not she was ever vegan
Take a look at our first jvlogger thread where she identified herself as a vegan in her insta profile, and complained about products not being vegan within days of announcing she was going vegan while still eating eggs and fish on camera. She touted her veganness so much that her own fans began to complain. She also gifted Mimei a vegan subscription box and took her to a vegan cafe for her birthday when Mimei isn't even vegan.

No. 265559

Sharla is just one of those people who doesn't have an actual personality so she uses things like veganism, cats, and hoarding junk as a way to seem more interesting. I'm glad she at least stopped pretending to be a vegan but she in turn decided to overdose on cat to compensate for that.

No. 265563

For the most part Japan is a terrible place for veganism. Take a look at Disney for one who just got rid of all their vegan and vegetarian and gluten free options as well. It has a very aggressive culture about well rounded diets, so veganism, gluten free.. Its not a main priority overall in Japan. They have a whole culture surrounding balanced meals and even teach kids this early in schools. You are lucky to find niche places to eat, otherwise you cook on your own and its so costly to do in Japan. You still have not proven her pretending to be vegan. Because it sounds like she tried and it was a pain in the ass so she stopped. Being vegan isn't a lifestyle, anon.

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.

This is why you should've read the thread before commenting. Sharla was eating tempura in that vlog and eating fish eggs in another. It's not hard to avoid tempura or fish eggs in Japan. It's also not hard to avoid buying a cat from a pet store which she also did days later despite condemning pet stores heh. The problem with Sharla wasn't that she didn't stick with a vegan lifestyle and fell off the wagon, but that she never tried to adhere to her vegan principles from day 1, despite being preachy and arrogant about being vegan to the point where she lost fans.

No. 265653

A rescue isn't a store and rescues do charge. Not everyone front is a store anon, a cafe usually has rescues and a lot of 'pet stores' are rescues at this point. She didn't buy from a breeding store if that is your concern. And yeah, after giving up, she was eating fish and tempura and she kind of tried out pescetarianism then dropped that. Yes, it is hard to avoid this stuff in Japan. Being ignorant about it doesn't make you special, anon.

No. 265660

She bought Miko from a pet store, not a rescue shelter. She called it a shitty pet store herself. She was eating tempura in the vlog announcing she was now vegan and ate fish when she was recently vegan… You OK?

At least she saved a cat from pet store conditions. These animals still do need homes. Dint blame consumers.

No. 265686

Buying animals from pet shops is a huge no-no for vegans, and it's something Sharla had criticized herself. It only supports the continuation of those shops and irresponsible breeders. There's plenty of shelter cats and strays with medical conditions that could use saving. Just look at Rachel and June who've rescued several cats off the street and adopted two of them.

No. 265704

Such brave and noble heroes.

If it means saving an animal from some sort of mill situation, yeah. Mills and stores are the problem, the animals are in the cross-hairs. The either sell as babies or they are gone, so saving them from the unfortunate life they were dealt is absolutely heroic.

No. 265709

The money just goes back to supporting mills and pet shops. That's why vegans and NGOs don't support them and what of the cats dying in shelters and on the street? She just chose one life over another, while putting money into the system she was criticizing. She supported her friend buying a healthy kitten from a pet shop after condemning shops and going vegan for ethical reasons, too.

No. 265711

Anon. No. This isn't a consumer problem and I'm not going to get into the logistics about why with you. It's derailing and no, sharla didn't do anything wrong and like most people who aren't dumb as fuck, realized it isn't a vegan or cruelty issue on the consumer's part. You can condemn them, like she did, and still understand that just not shopping there doesn't stop them from existing. It's cruel and terrible, but that's not her fault. If she went to some 'ethical breeder' anons would be throwing fits about that too. There is zero ethicality to any breeding whatsoever.

No. 265915

Nitpicking this hard when an animal was saved.. Consumers didn't create the need for pet stores, assholes who create demand do, acting like breeds are a good thing and selling that to consumers. There's actual stuff behind this that has nothing to do with Sharla or anyone who actually shops at pet stores, this isn't the thread for it. I'm not going to be mad at pet store shoppers or Sharla. Pet store owners and the mills are the problem. People buy out pet stores to save cats and dogs sometimes too. Breeders are a whooole other issue too. You cannot ethically breed these cats she likes. Breeding isn't ethical.

No. 265990

Supply and demand. If nobody bought cats from pet stores, pet stores would stop selling cats. If there was no demand for breeders, they’d be out of business. Sharla didn’t save a cat by buying from a pet store. She supported a shitty industry doing shitty things. Clearly she loves her cats and I’m glad to see they have such a good life with her. That doesn’t make it okay to buy from pet stores.(animal mill derail)

No. 266008

japanese pet stores are different.

No. 266013

They purposely create the demand there and use cafes as a way to sell animals too, but to seem less like a pet store. Anons really don't know what they are talking about. Not every country has shelters like in America and if it wasn't a pet store, again, she would have gone to a breeder and that's not ethical either. Unless Sharla picked up a cat from the street, anons wouldn't be happy. Even then they'd claim she stole it probably and make a whole story about how someone's poor pet is gone forever now.

No. 266019

people should be able to get pets from breeders too though. getting a pet from a shelter is going above and beyond as a person. not everyone can take care of a possibility abused pe. the pet argument is always stupid because it's sheer projection. this is coming from someone who's had abused shelter animals. you can't expect everyone to have the capacity to do that.

No. 266026

Breeding is 100% absolutely not ethical and the same vein as puppy mills, but with a fancy makeover to make it seem okay and not every animal in a shelter is abused. A lot of breeders do abuse or put the animals they breed in backyards in small cages and then only bring them out in the front of their houses to show off when someone comes over to see this 'ethical breeding'. Smoke and mirrors, anon. This is a pointless discussion, Sharla didn't do anything wrong and veganism has nothing to do with pet stores because the animals in general are put at risk in all these situations. Not all shelters are good either with conditions they put pets in. thank goodness these cats went to a good owner who takes care of them and even grooms them. Momokun in her thread has to take her cats to a groomers because she can't even self comb her ragdolls.

No. 266027

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.

No. 266029

No one fucking cares about this vegan stint and it's not that big of a deal. Are you guys all vegans or something because this is apparently such a sore topic for you anons and you seem to be foaming at the mouth at the idea that she ever said the word vegan or tried to be vegan. Pet stores have nothing to do with vegans and her thyroid disorder will probably make her bounce around for the rest of her life from diet to diet as it does for basically everyone with a thyroid disorder.

No. 266077

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)

No. 266083

Absolutely correct. I remember her saying somewhere that she bought Maro at a discount because he was a biter and nobody else wanted him. Maybe she deserves a little credit for that, I don’t know.

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.

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.

Instagram as well you can sometimes find glipses of Chris in PDPs Jvlogs. Chris also talks about PDP on trash taste.
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.

Pretty ridiculous to be this inept at cooking after living on your own for the last decade. Not saying he needs to be a top tier cook, but being this bad at cooking the basics is just silly.

>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.
This isn't true at all. Cooking is far more common in Japan than North America and Western Europe, but take out is also more inexpensive compared to some other first world countries. Most Japanese guys Chris' age can also cook more than him.

No. 266868


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

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?

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.
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.

No. 267050

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.
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.
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.

Tokidoki mainly does twitch stream that’s where she earns most her income not from TC my dear.

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.
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.

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?

The worst thing about Chris Broad is that for the last ten years whenever people ask him what music he likes, or to make recommendations for Japanese music, he just says "Japanese City Pop" because it sounds "retro like the 80s" and at best he can name one or two musicians.

No. 267457

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.

No. 267459

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.

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.
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.
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.

>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.

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)

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.

kek Chris hanging out with a guy who was a prolific poster on manosphere forums and still has major issues with misogyny is, somehow, a rightwing conspiracy. Sorry ladies but this shit IS milk, the company you keep speaks to your values. It should be discussed here, it belongs here more than Sharla's dress size speculation. Hanging out with Bald & Bankrupt and hanging pictures of Elon Musk up on your walls indicates a certain level of crypto-rightwing bro shit. Musk doesn't consider himself a racist or an LGBT hater either. It's not old school conservative christians we're talking about here. He also in the UK livestream with Connor joked around about Johnny Depp and 'megapints' which all his supporters were doing at that time.

Lol Chris is downplaying the meetup with a guy he was constantly warned about pretending he had no idea of anything sketchy about him other than an Andrew Tate comment made at dinner.

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.

And this is why that previous anon who said that Chris was having a "midlife" crisis is a low-IQ autistic teen, most likely.

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…..

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

No. 268755

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.

Ironically that is exactly how Sharla sounds, minus the self-aware part about arrested development. And no one is talking about the other two dudes because one is a guy no one knows about, and the other is American Pete and I guess yeah, maybe he agrees with Baldie Rapist too? I mean the kind of scrote who lives in Japan is usually not the most progressive and intellectual type of guy.

No. 268782

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.

Someone asked American Pete on his stream about it and he said he didn't know who he was and had never seen his channel before. Since he doesn't have a Youtube channel that's not VODs of his streams, he was kind of uncomfortable because it was like 3 hours of Youtube talk.

At least that what he said, and nobody mentioned how scummy he is, so I guess he hasn't found out yet. But who knows if that's true…. (it's at around 09:53:00 of his last stream @ Twitch/PremierTwo).

According to Backpacker Ben, who traveled and vlogged with Bald, he and Bald went to the Mount Fuji area right after arriving in Japan.

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.

No. 269175

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?

No. 269178

Natsuki clearly didn't care they made fun of his English because he actively leaned into joking about not getting phrases right. Ryota would do it too.

No. 269179

So you're not going to explain what Natsuki has been doing that makes him unprofessional and where Chris said this?
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.

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.

AFAIK, he's never said that he did, and he's been eating french fries, drinking beer, eating ramen and other junk in all his latest videos and other people' streams, including in his Spartan Race one and the bike-a-thon with Connor.

No. 269201

The main this Chris would mention is that Natsuki would wander off and goof off and go missing mostly to go smoke. They even had to limit his smoke breaks because of the delays so Natsuki would go to the bathroom and not be seen for ages because he was actually going far away from where he'd think they'd look to sneak cigarettes.

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.
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.
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.

I can't imagine eating take out every single day. Even at my laziest, my body wants to wake up and make my own meals a few times a week or else I feel horrible. Chris must be really bad health wise. He's lived in Japan 8 years now? And still doesn't know how to cook something super basic?

Chris is really bad health wise. He seems to think he can fix it just by losing weight. Cuz you know, skinny=healthy and that's all that matters.

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.

No. 269228

So he says he hates hostess bars because of how expensive they are and doesnt think to mention they're awful because most are ran by yakuza or shady men in general who exploit the women. Most of whom are there because of drugs or debt owed. I wish he'd go further into why he hated certain things because he could have spoken up about it, but I guess it doesnt mean that much to him.

You're thinking of Soaps/brothels unless you're thinking of the kyabakura that are just a front for brothels. But I do find it weird that Chris said he frequently went to hostess bars because there was nothing else to do and his co-workers would take him, when he was living in Yamagata and working as an ALT and apparently paying for himself. I don't know how he could've afforded it, it's not something that a guy his age would do and there's a lot more to do in Yamagata.

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.
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.
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.

Yes, Chris's downplaying of Bald's controversies is far worse than his diet. At least he's only only hurting himself by not changing his diet. Can't say the same about helping a known predator film in Japan and earn more money.

No. 269406

Japan beat Spain just now in the World Cup. That makes two predictions of Chris that didn't come true. He also said they would be smashed by Germany and he was wrong. Yesterday's podcast he said Japan would get trounced by Spain. You'd think he'd at least root for them in some way - I just think it's telling.

Combine that with the fact Chris just made a 12 Things I Hate About Japan video and it's pretty clear he's over it. He's going to Canada, the US, and the UK. I give him and Sharla less than a year before they leave Japan, but the question is - what will they do for money? Are they going to keep subs if they stop having Japan content?

No. 269411

I can guarantee they won’t have the same views if they go anywhere else. Sharla has zero personality outside of catmom in Japan. Chris has a personality but it is really basic British scrote. No one is going to watch them just live normal lives anywhere outside of Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, et cetera. For whatever reason western euro/North American travel vloggers don’t get the views that the ones in Japan do unless they’ve got good personas and/or a unique hook. Chris is really like a thousand and one guys in the UK, and Sharla is like a thousand and one women in Canada. Japan is their hook and if it goes away, so does the audience. I’m sure they both could do work other than Youtube, and they would have to. Only way I can see it working is if they became more of a general travel vlogging couple, who went all over the world for a couple weeks at a time. That doesn’t require big personalities, just good camerawork and decent personalities, which they do have. But yeah who the fuck would watch a day in the life of those two at Wagamama? Kek

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

No. 269424

>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

No. 269429

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?

No. 269430

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.
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.
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.

No. 269467

I don't see Sharla and Chris lasting

No. 269472

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.
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.

No. 269473

pewdiepie can smell when people are using him and that's exactly what chris intends to do. his actions recently point to one thing, expand his audience no matter what.
pewdiepie on the other hand hasn't included Chris in any of his vlogs, he's kept them mostly free of other youtubers recently and only collabs with people he's known for a long time.
Chris's desperation and fake friendliness was uncovered immediately.
This could be the start of his slip into irrelevancy. He can sense this which is why he's trying a whole bunch of different things to see what works. But as anons here have said, without japan as his main focus, he has little to offer to his audience.

No. 269475

Say what you will about PewDiePie but he is smart enough to not be taken advantage of. Chris will not find any value in trying to exploit the relationship. But on the other hand PewDiePie actually really likes Chris' content and studio so he has value in the relationship too. More importantly he no longer cares about youtube algorithms or building and just wants to do videos he enjoys making where small jvlogs with his wife or reactions with Ken. It's really just a matter of whether you think Chris is self aware enough to not cross that line to upset PewDiePie.

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.

Connor just isn't lazy and uses common sense. He was chubby before but said in one of the trash taste podcasts that he worked out and dieted, I think eating chicken breast, some veggies, and little rice(?) until the weight dropped off. Not hard, chris just can't or won't do it.

I don't know why you're pretending like Emma is off the rails. She's way more normal and down to earth than Lily or especially Sharla. I think they would work out very well and that Chris should pursue it. Especially since Sharla is exploiting Chris for views as shown with >>269585
The presents take priority because she needs to show off to family as well neither her nor Chris are financially responsible so buying a fancy new wardrobe instead of packing makes more sense to them. >>269602
It's not really effortless. Chris just needs to show some self control. Connor didn't do any secret diets or hardwork he just ate healthier food and not as much for an extended period of time. Exercise is very good for you but it'll barely effect the scale. Chris doesn't seem to know this as he was expecting to lose like a dozen kilos from cycling in Hokkaido but instead gained a few and tried to waive it away as swelling and water. Connor is very deliberate and disciplined as well as open but not making his weight loss into huge annual events like Chris does. It does make sense though as he did well in an engineering program, is billingual soon to be trilingual, and seems to be the only Jvlogger who actually keeps up with the world and continual learning.
They didn't do the best job promoting it at least Chris didn't so there's a lot of seats left. You have to google around to find the tickets especially if you are coming from Chris' fanbase. I do think Chris would actually do decently as a boxer (no idea his chess skill). Chris seems to have a lot of power, decent endurance, but low pain tolerance. I have no intel on his opponent other than he is almost 10 years younger as he is a German streamer. But with the format Chris won't gas out. I don't see Chris falling off the wagon until after the chess boxing but it'll be off after that until he starts to train for the Spartan race 2. He won't ever lose weight though so I think he should probably consider strongman.

That doesn't mean he condones it. He even said he didn't know about this shit. He doesn't run his subreddit, you know that right. Just because random people post things, online, where of course everything is absolutely real, he should listen to people who aren't even tangible? Be realistic, anon. Most of the creators don't Google or look in to stuff just because people are yelling about it online. The biggest thing is how cancel culture works and how so many people ignore what others have to say until they have first hand experience to determine things themselves.

No one is willingly ignoring Chris hanging out, but anons also aren't braindead enough to just take shit at face value. It's not even defending him, it's not jumping to conclusions. Since Sharla wasn't there, like anons are speculating, it could be that she might warn him or might say why she didn't want to be around him.

You need to relax and wait for more info. This isn't fun when you just want to jump to conclusions.

It's not really a surprise. Paolo is a bit of a dork but if you're interested in Japan his videos are way better. Just watch his Okinawa videos compared to Chris'. Paolo seems like a good dad and showed a lot of Okinawa, an affordable family hotel, travel tips, and Okinawa culture and sights. Chris meanwhile had a series where he was bragging about renting an expensive yacht, bragging about an expensive hotel, a weird dropped Natsuki loan shark plotline, not doing anything Okinawa related, and all that wrapped around clickbait titles.
As well Paolo is a normal open guy who mostly focuses his videos on allowing others to shine. Even vlogs focused on him are more about his family. Chris' videos are focused increasingly on his AiJ persona and his friends being flanderized rather than Japan in fact he's obviously trying to transition away from Japan content. Plus he's constantly lying on social media and having drama whether it's cheating, or forcing his friends to edit their content to help him cover up his relationship with Sharla, or now where he's lying to people to cover up his friendship with a predator.
I honestly think at the core Chris doesn't understand his audience or what appeals him to them.

No. 269770

you just hit on the thing that's always bothered me about Chris. it's always about him, not Japan. Japan is just the backdrop and the content he milks. Natsuki is a convenient puppet for him that represents "Japanese friend" and Ryotaro is "Senpai" joke character that Chris likes to mock to prove how little he actually thinks of Japanese customs. He pays lip service to "loving Japan" but he "loves Japan" only in what it can do for him.

No. 269776

Anon is just grasping at straws to defend Chris. Pete said before this happened, that he was meeting Chris to film something and to talk about some stuff they're doing (Pete is travelling to LA for the boxing event too and to the UK. I think he's the MC at Chris' event or something).

Most likely, Chris told this other guy he was going to be in Tokyo and he joined them after filming. This is probably why Sharla wasn't there.
It's not that hard to believe that Chris just wanted to meet this guy to talk about YT analytics or whatever, and is shallow enough to be willing to ignore everything he was told about him.
Most of his fanboys think everything he does is brilliant, anyway, so he didn't even have to explain himself. Just commenting on it was enough for people. Most of them believed him and even thanked him for clearing things up kek.

Even though this is tokyocreative milking them still in the year 2022 the dynamic is way better. Emma also dresses really well. Chris should let her do his wardrobe. Sharla just wears the same hoodie and is lazy in her collabs with Chris. I really don't get how people think Emma is more off the rails than her. She's more mature, isn't in arrested development, and takes care of herself.
This is hardly comparable to Sharla who probably weighs more than Chris now. I am glad Chris is actually losing weight now. I hope he doesn't fall off the wagon after the holidays. Probably the fear of boxing is keeping the motivation.
I never liked how much he milks "being mean" to his friends especially Ryotaro but lately even Natsuki for views. A few years ago he'd make one tongue and cheek Ryotaro comment usually because Ryotaro is suggesting a crazy thing like climbing a mountain. Now most of the collab is him "cheekily" talking about how much he hates Ryotaro and how much of a garbage person he is. Even Natsuki he'll like picking on now like pushing him into cold water. Or how he tried to ruin Connor's birthday with bungie jumping only for it to backfire because Connor is an open minded guy who doesn't mind coming out of his comfort zone.

Most major cities especially in alpha cities known in the region will have a fashion element. It's not over idealizing Japan. It's the same with New York, LA, Paris, Singapore, Toronto, Seoul etc etc. As well Japan overall is fairly respected in terms of fashion with it's elements in what it produces.

I mean there's literally like 10 of the previous threads that mostly revolved around Chris trying to lie about dating Sharla and cheating on Lily. He's actually a bigger liar than most people because he would delete old videos to cover it up and force his friends to edit their content to aid him in the lies.
It's for his fitness journey/attempt to go mainstream and at least it's chess boxing but I don't see him having a good time. His opponent is a decade younger, in better shape, and seems very fierce. The youtube boxing events have always been mistmatches but Chris has it almost as bad as OddsOneOut when he fought a muscular Austrlian guy four inches taller than him.

No. 269947

At first I thought he was just using it as an expression, but it's interesting that Chris specifically said he didn't have a clue about "half the other rumours" about Bald.
Actually, his statement is shit even if you believe he didn't know anything when he met Ben. He admits to reading people's comments about Bald being a rapist in the thread, but instead of expressing surprise and disgust, or saying that he hadn't been aware of what Bald had done, was concerned and would look into it and be more careful about who he supports, he doubled down on defending himself by pretending Bald just has some different political views. None of the comments he referred to in that thread were just talking about a difference in views. His reaction is quite sick really.

Earlier in the thread there's people thinking he's hitting on Emma which would be bad as he's dating Sharla already. Plus all the lying he's been doing lately.

Response from Chris to a subscriber who said they unfollowed him after finding out about him socializing with Bald and Bankrupt. It was written after Chris had read and responded to comments in the thread about Bald's rapey past. >>268852 The flippant attitude is very surprising, considering he'd just read and been provided evidence that the man he'd just met and helped is a self-confessed sex predator.

No. 270065

This isn't really milk.. Can we stop allowing crap from his subreddit to be posted here or something? He's not going to speak on anything more detailed because he doesn't want Bald to go after him the same way YouTubers have to use the word alleged at all times when discussing stuff like this.

You aren't going to get him talking more about this even if you want him to, anon. Stay on reddit. Your posts aren't milky and you're trying way too hard to keep bringing up Bald when literally nothing new has come of it. His replies are just him being a dick, but literally I like when creators mock people who think announcing they are unsubbing matters. It's the same type of narc crap people on Facebook would pull when saying you're thinning your friendlist and you may or may not make the list after pruning.

No. 270067

This is more evidence that Chris is treating rape allegations shared in the thread, which he acknowledged reading about in his own explanation of events, like they don't bother him at all. A cow acting like they don't care that they helped someone who bragged about forcing women to have sex with them and says women are responsible for rape? I'd say that's pretty milky.

Even if you accept what Chris said about not being aware, he was aware by the time he responded in the thread, yet he never once said anything about being surprised or upset by what he was told. That's very odd for someone who just learned there's a good chance their friend is a serial rapist. Do you think most public figures could get away with such a response?

No. 270070

He’s so embarrassing trying to seem unbothered. Why would he take the time to reply to that comment in particular? It just proves that he is reading them all, so he can’t pretend that he hasn’t seen all the gory details about Bald.

By that logic Ryan Toys Review a literal kid is one of the manliest men of all. He's a nice kid but having a successful YouTube Channel has nothing to do with being a mature adult.
Idk if he's the next Andrew Tate like some are saying but he's definitely proven himself here to be not that different from Norm. Only difference is he normally has the self awareness to know it's bad for the brand but I guess one guy being upset about him meeting up with a sex trafficking predator was too much criticism for him to keep it under wraps. I think we can admit that being against sexual assault doesn't make someone a hater it makes them a normal human being. A recent similar situation is when they fired one of the try guys for having an affair with an employee. They took it seriously and responded and were open with fans. That wasn't even approaching the sick disgusting levels of Bald that Chris is happy to downplay while he's promoting him and lying about the situation. Chris at the very least would fit in well with Hollywood if he pursues filmmaking seriously.
I mean this is how he always handles criticism. He downplays what happens and tried to act snarky and unbothered even though he'll still be complaining about it months later. If he could get away with it he'd be telling his fans off like Norm for not liking his Okinawa rich guy miniseries. But because he's self aware he settled for a few snarky sarcastic comments.

Reddit is like 90% men even in subs that should have more women. So you'll get the most scote section of his fanbase there. I'd also say most of his fans there seem to be more so fans of trash taste who can't stop saying affable. I'd wager the bulk of his actual viewers are just various people interested in Japan and his podcast skews older and more mature than what's on the subreddit. The three fanbases are fairly separate and don't overlap much other than older fans occasionally getting tired of his youtube meme persona on the sub.

No. 270136

Chris has told the story a million times on the podcast of him being out with a female friend who was being followed or stared at by a man at a store. He always makes sure to mention that he followed the guy around, glaring at him angrily, 'til he left. I guess he mainly cares about these things when he can be the hero and when the creeper isn't an associate.

Do you push yourself to do something that scares you even if you will fail, in a stadium fill with thousands and live on stream ? Credit to chris for trying!

This vlog was interesting. It confirmed what some were saying as in the middle of dinner probably after some alcohol Chris challenges Connor to punch things out with him. Connor doesn't want to do it and is clearly uncomfortable but Chris eggs him on and keeps pushing him. Until Connor does a light tap that Chris laughs off. Then Chris tells him to do it again before laughing it off and punching Connor. It's jokey but Chris definitely gives me the vibes that he'd be an alpha male type of personality as mentioned before if he could get away with it. He was already bullying his friends and hanging out with a predator and now he's starting to get physical since he has some of that ability now.

And Chris is in the thumbnail yet again. I really wish they would keep their channels separate. Sharla's videos are where her fans go to chill, and his abrasive personality doesn't really fit. I hope Sharmeleon won't end up becoming some kind of couple's channel with Chris in every single video.

Well, that just makes his reaction to the recent commenter even worse. Comparing a fan, who was either joking or being whiny about something super trivial in his vlog, to a subscriber who was genuinely appalled to see him support a sex predator.
They were drinking in Tokyo with their friends a few days ago and the match is this Sunday. There probably is an important reason why they had to go to Canada first instead of after the match, but you should avoid travel and changes to your training as much as possible when you're that close to the event. As for it being for charity, it's not like chessboxing is the only thing out there that he could do. Boxing in general is just dangerous, but more so for someone like him with no experience.

Sharla doesn't have a fuckin' thyroid anymore. One of the MAIN symptoms of this is weight gain. She has no choice but to change her diet and eating habits, because weight gain is guaranteed in this situation. I wouldn't doubt that she has been in denial about this new reality. But there's no sense in sperging about it because it's just not her fault.

Ah, but she didn't gain weight until now - now that her thyroid is gone. I can truly understand being in denial about that, and being resistant to changing your habits. But it is what it is, and she will have to change. I'm sure it's not like she's not aware that she has gained a ton of weight.

>but she didn't gain weight until now
She did. People have been talking about her poor diet and steady weight gain here for almost a decade. She tried dieting and exercise for a short time before her wedding, but she never fully committed. After her surgery, she was also doing much better until she went to the UK, according to her and her doctor. Anyone nearing 40 would gain a lot of weight on what she eats. It's just more dangerous for her with her condition. She would be a more sympathetic character if she didn't vlog about what a strict diet she's (not) been on and didn't post on IG exclaiming she was baffled she was still gaining weight on meds while eating fatty and sweet foods all of the time.

No. 270367

I'm not trying to WK so badly here, but theoretically, she's had a thyroid condition for a long time now. Yes, she obviously eats poorly, but people with thyroid dysfunction, especially hypothyroidism like she would have now, gain weight way easier than others, and have a much harder time losing it. Either way, I think she looks fucking fine.

No. 270370

This is basically it, I don’t care that Sharla has gained weight. What is cringy to me is she still holds on to the healthy eating schtick in a lot of her content. Its like when a fat girl pretends not to be hungry ever, or claims they hate sweets. If she was just more honest about what she eats (ie not just a smoothie until noon kek) or just never talked about diets at all, it would be fine. As it is claiming to be doing intermittent fasting while steadily gaining weight just makes her look stupid or like she is trying to cultivate an image, which she definitely is. Sharla wants to be a healthy kawaii vegan-adjacent influencer still but that isn’t her anymore, if it ever was. I think she would actually be more likable if she showed her more genuine personality. Like embrace it, eat what you like, say when things suck, cuss like she does on other people’s videos, et cetera.

No. 270372

Unless she's one of the few blessed with genetics that allows them to not gain weight no matter what they eat even into their late-30s, she would've gain a lot of weight without her thyroid problem. We don't even know how much she would've gained if she ate healthy with her condition, but it definitely wouldn't be as much. What's worse is she complains about it while making poor choices and pretended she was eating a very restricted diet. It's not like having a cheat day here and there.

There's no way Chris goes to the gym. If a white male YouTuber goes to the gym they're legally obligated to make videos about it, from their workout routine to their morning routine to their supplement stack to their gym clothes.

I'm guessing a couple 25lb dumbbells that he curls while he watches TV. He might also do pushups sometimes but you wouldn't know it by his chest. My SO is a gym rat, not only does he have a gym membership but we have a full dumbbell rack in the garage that goes up to 50lb, a squat/benchpress rack and bench with barbell, kettle bells, etc etc etc. He obsessively watches his favorite fitness YouTubers and is always modifying his routine.

I don't know if it's because I've watched Chris for years but he's definitely changed lately and not for the better. He seems hyper aggressive and going down the Andrew Tate path. When he was egging Connor (who is a sweet guy) on to punch things out with him while probably drunk I got so uncomfortable. He also desperately met up with Bald who is a predator. His Musk fanboyism. Turning JVlogs into bragging about how filthy rich he is. I've seen guys like this they're nerdy all their lives and then suddenly they follow extreme figures online and go off the deep end. Chris is self aware to not be blatant about it but it's leaking out more and more. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if between his alpha posturing and unrealistic fitness expectations he started doing steroids which will just increase his aggression. I just hope he doesn't hurt anyone anymore.

No. 270388

It's doable with full commitment.
Maybe not that shredded as the picture some comments above but some mild abs can be achieved.

Maybe if he was starting out relatively thin, sure, but him starting with a keg and trying to turn it into a six pack in 10 weeks, nah.

It would take longer than that, even if he was very committed to a training regiment and diet plan, with his starting shape. Not saying it would take years, but maybe 6 months

He's too unrealistic in his expectations. He eats better sometimes, but then in other videos he's clearly eating poorly and still drinking alcohol. Not sure if he just doesn't understand what he's doing or if he is just constantly rewarding himself for either having a training session or ate a "healthy" meal earlier in the day and can "afford" the calories

Actually Chris and Sharla are in Canada and going to Los Angeles after. Those are two hotspots for PEDs. With how much they leave Japan now it's not that hard for Chris to time his cycles so he doesn't risk a Japanese jail situation.
In all seriousness though you're missing the point. I'm not saying he's on gear right now but he's pursuing the alpha male lifestyle which often leads to it especially when coupled with his body image issues. I just hope Chris understands that he doesn't need to do all that or hang out with Bald to be a manly man. He should appreciate just saying home with Sharla, Maro, and Tuna instead of becoming something he's not.

The first thing we ate was a dish literally called "Big Fried Chicken" and it was a massive chicken the size of a pancake and it was like 20 family mart chickens stuck together at once, then we got pizza, then we had yakitori, then we had burgers, and I probably ate like 5,000 calories during the day…."

In case anyone wanted context for the above anons talking about how Chris doesn't understand anything about fitness/calories/working out etc…. and the anons saying "Chris thinks doing fitness allows him to eat everything he wants to" - you were right.

He says he calculated that he only burned 1500 calories. And this is a guy who is supposedly trying for a "six pack"
He might as well just give up and drink six packs.

Timestamp 26:46
Chris: "Seriously, I was speaking to Ian, who comes on Journey Across Japan, and he loses weight by just like… being very careful with what he eats and what I"ve found over time is that it's what you eat really that defines if you lose weight or put it on. Exercise is like, one part of it? But it's more like what you eat, right?"

He sounds genuinely like he's made an entirely new discovery.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL well at least he finally figured it out I guess

Chris: "…oh and I remember on the walk, we also ate some Kit Kats… and I realized that the Kit Kats had eradicated most of my progress…

It was gradual but the ego was always there and growing. First it was him demanding not to be called a YouTuber because he's a filmmaker. Then it was all the lies and cheating. Now its him hanging out with toxic personalities like Bald, trying to pick a fight with Connor while drunk, and now novelty boxing matches. He just keeps escalating the behaviour. In his mind he probably sees himself as a super macho tough guy who doesn't need to have any respect for women or his fans.

That's literally every episode of the podcast.
Something political comes up
Pete: progressive comment
Chris gets uncomfortable and tries to change the subject
Pete: Goes on a mini progressive rant
Chris gets really uncomfortable and makes some joke to change the topic
Pete thinks he's just joking and goes onto another topic.
Chris obviously still is pro Elon. I really don't get how people are taking his reddit comment which already had lies in it face value when he's so algorithm and feedback obsessed. He knows everyone on reddit hates Elon so he won't admit how he feels. Same with him not promoting the Bald meetup and it only being leaked because Balds friend posted a picture. If Bald had no controversy and was just a big youtuber, Chris would be spamming the meetup for clout everywhere like how he keeps talking about PewDiePie lately. >>270582
Chris losing weight is a lost cause. He could hire a nutritionist to get him a diet plan that will work or even just not have a bucket of fried chicken everyday. But instead he thinks he will outrun his dinner plate. All while massively overestimating his physical activity and coming up with coping excercises like oh must just be swelling not my diet. I think he should just embrace it at this point and just bulk up like a strongman. Maybe even try to collab with Eddie Hall.
Lets not forget these people literally are in bed with Norm. They probably view Norm as how they wish they could be. Sharla and Chris love attacking fans lately. Gradually it's inching towards a full Norm level meltdown. Though on some level Chris attacking a fan for being upset about Bald being a predator is worse than Norms comments who usually are just people who criticize his work not any association he has with predators.

Once when Norm was just starting out I asked him a question like "What camera would you suggest for someone just getting into vlogging" just to add engagement because initially I thought he might be a cool Jvlogger (I had only seen a couple videos) and he didn't have a big following.

His response was something like "I literally made a video about that, why don't you go find it"

You're right that biking is easy to do 4-5hrs easy, especially with a road bike or hybrid. You have triathlon classes in college where some days you're not swimming or running, but practicing up hills and flats for 4+hrs based on route.

NTA, but I don't think the problem is who's covering medical bills if Chris gets hurt. Getting injured itself is the problem.
I was wondering how good his chess game is and if he could end the match quickly by playing well or stall during the chess rounds. Chessboxing is 6 rounds of chess and 5 rounds of boxing, starting with 4 minutes of chess and 3 minutes of boxing. If a ref thinks someone's stalling, they can force them to make a move in 10 seconds, so there's no way he can prolong the chess playing. It can't be easy thinking of chess moves under that kind of pressure when someone's punched you in the face. It seems like you'd really need to train yourself doing both than train each discipline (boxing/chess) separately.

>Fights like this happen across international borders all the time.
Yeah, but those promotions also require fighters, mma at least, not sure about boxing, to get fighter licensing and medical/physical/blood testing through doctors and then have their own separate insurances to cover injuries.

No. 270919

Sure, but I was referring more to getting injured to the point where his life is impacted, maybe even seriously. The guy he's fighting seems kinda aggressive and not one to hold back. I think Chris has his own event later this month in London, so he needs to at least not get injured enough that he has to change his travel plans or cancel. Head and face injuries are no joke tho. Amateurs can be more dangerous since they don't have enough experience to know how to protect themselves well or box without accidentally injuring their opponent badly. I think something like what Connor did with pro wrestler's in Japan would better suit Chris since it's choreographed even if he'd still have to train a lot and could get hurt. But he'd probably have to organize the thing himself and might not be able to raise as much for charity.

No. 270929

That would defeat the whole purpose. Connor made a fun Japanese wrestling video. Chris has three goals to break out of the Japanese niche, to get fit, and to be seen as a tough alpha type of guy. He's gain none of that from doing a few chronographed routines.
Given Chris' politics and that he has complained about masks on the podcast before I wouldn't be surprised if he got it by not taking any precautions.
I also doubt he thought much about injury impacting him physically or financially. After eight years of complaining about his weight he still hasn't figured out anything about diet. He could even ask Connor who casually did it fairly easily. But he'll just have the same cycle.

The issue with Chris is that he doesn't seem self-aware enough or humble enough to actually sit down with professionals and make a plan.

You're seriously overestimating how much youtubers earn. I agree that Sharla's gifts sucked, but many people, including people who make more than your cousin, prefer to have a low-key celebration and home-cooked meal for Christmas than spend 10K for a fancy dinner and decor every year.

Chris has had 1M+ subs for years now. Currently 2.75M. His views have dipped in the last few months but for the last three years or so he's averaged 10M views a month.

His family home in the UK isn't super swanky, either.
How much do you think 10M views earns? Before tax is fine. And where did you get 10M views per month? He does also earn from Patreon and other sponsors, so I'm sure he does well, but youtube takes almost half from ad revenue.

No. 271251

>How much do you think 10M views earns?
depends on a lot of factors but approx $50k though could fluctuate between $25k and $75k (US dollars)

most youtubers make their money from sponsorships but when you're getting the views Chris does and have monetized vids, his YT ad revenue alone for one month is more than most people make in a year.

And add to that his Podcast, extra channels, and who knows what else he's into (Tokyo Creative, Tohoku Tourism, etc)

You didn't answer my question about where you got 10M monthly views, but his monthly views for 2022 excluding December is 5.4M, so this year, he's earned a little over half of what you suggested if you're right. According to social blade, since 2020 until now, there have only been 3 months where he's exceeded 10M views. It doesn't go further back, but where did you get the 10M monthly views since 2019 and what were his averages in 2019? By the way, income tax is 45% if you make over 40M yen if you freelance or establish your own studio, plus 10% municipal tax, although it may be different depending on his situation with Tokyo Creative, excluding municipal tax. I did completely forget about his podcast and how much income he could be earning from that.

The dynamic has changed, the audience is predominantly from Reddit, mixed with some oldfags like myself.
Forgive me for wanting a thread to be like it always has, but stop reeeeing that we’re trying to cover up Chris being a rapist sympathiser, cos that isn’t what this is.

No. 271381

NTA, but milk of Chris downplaying the rape allegations to a former subscriber was shared a few days ago, not 2 weeks ago. IDK why they're bringing it up at this moment, however. More Japan content from the Bens who Chris helped will be coming out later anyway, with potential for more milk.

Training once ≠ working with a trainer to establish a healthy workout routine, nutrition plan, etc.

I can tell you don't understand much about fitness, "hun"

No. 271549

Training once? He’s been training since September?

No. 271552

Anin is hung up on the "he prooomised a 6 pack" when those are unrealistic unless you have a super low body fat % and are cutting/dehydrating yourself. Anons can't take sarcasm from Chris and assume its all 100% literal.

No. 271558

ok it's pretty clear you don't know what the deal is nonnie. he "literally" had a wager going with Trash Taste that he would have a six-pack by a certain date. it wasn't "sarcasm" kek

No. 271559

yeah. training once. he met with those guys once. that's different than going to the gym 5x a week and running and changing your nutrition plan.

man you anons must be so out of shape and gross

No. 271571

it was for sure an unreasonable goal and he was well above 30%bf

he would have had to eat around 1000 kcal a day in order to get lean enough. he's been so overweight for so long he's likely to have a lot of loose skin even if he did manage to drop that much fat that quickly

No. 271580

Wager, uh huh. Guess do this all the time. He was never going to get a 6 pack. Your nitpicking is senseless.

No. 271586

>Wager, uh huh

Yes? A wager. Do you not know what word that means?

Wager -
verb: to risk (a sum of money or valued item) against someone else's on the basis of the outcome of an unpredictable event; bet. 2.
noun: an act of betting a sum of money on the outcome of an unpredictable event.

livestream of the weigh-in for the chessboxing match. Chris at 22:47 He weighed in at 184.6 pounds or about 83.7kg and has a reach of 69 inches. PJ Overtflow is taller and slightly lighter than Chris, 184.4 pounds and 73-inch reach. He said he was in chess club his whole life. I couldn't tell if he was joking.
It was official. Chris bet 500 quid and was supposed to show it off to Trash Taste staff on November 29. >>270330

No. 271591

Chris opponent PJ was in Chess Club and has a longer reach than Chris and is in way better shape.

Lots of excuses for Chris to pick from.

No. 271594

I think they mean that stuff like that needs to stop being taken so seriously in these threads. Anons seem to take stuff the cows say as if it's in a contract of sort. The expectations in here are really weird when they don't do exactly what anons take literal.

No. 271595

it doesn't matter what people on this thread think nonnie, Chris made a Literal wager with Trash Taste - why is this so hard for ppl to understand?

No. 271596

To give more perspective, Chris was 88kg according to his Japanese health check vid 5 months ago, so that's less than 5kg difference, though he just announced that he lost 7kg a day or two ago. His calves do look much fitter and clearly lost some fat, but only 5kg loss over 6 months must be disappointing.

No. 271597

First thing he did when he got to LA was to eat In N Out, and promptly declared it "overrated"

This is going to be one hilarious "fight"
Curious to see if Chris turtles up and just takes a barrage of punches or if Nick Pettas was able to get him to throw something back without clamming up>>271589

No. 271616

Man did Chris have no muscle mass or something he doesn't even weight as much people made him out to be made out as such a grotesquely out of shape guy. You'd think he'd be well over 200 lbs at his peak and really he just went from 190 something to 180 something at what seems to be an average height. His weight is probably better than most guys his age. Or maybe he just stands out more in Japan regarding his size. His health report I don't think his issues are weight related more so inactivity.
Most of us outside the US hear about these chains all the time so it's natural he'd want to try them. If he wasn't already used to Canada he'd probably talk about reacting to Tim Hortons or Pizza Pizza or something. Plus most fast food isn't that good it's just that it gives us nostalgia

No. 271617

I think "Chris have no muscle mass" is a correct statement. My SO works out regularly and he looks muscular. He started out doughy like Chris. Chris has been doing "Fitness" for a year or so? By the end of the first year of my guy committing to working out and diet, he had really transformed and wasn't doughy anymore, he had some definition.

We think Chris is either a) not dedicated or b) is ignorant of the proper knowledge and training or c) both

No. 271621

>Chris has been doing "Fitness" for a year or so?
He's been doing these fitness and diet projects for at least 8 years now. I think the first time was the most successful, 82kg to 74kg in 10 weeks, but he was also younger.

No. 271625

Anon said he's being doing this fitness stuff for 1 year, but it's only been 6 months this time around according to Chris, so I assumed they weren't talking about this specific time but in general. Sorry if it offended.

No. 271634

Can we please talk about something that isn't weight? Like the event specifics, when it starts, how long the rounds are, who he's against, what are the brackets.. There's a way to talk about Chris and Sharla without bringing up their weight and working out/food choices.

No. 271635


No. 271638

He just had his weigh-in for chessboxing and his recent vlogs and social media posts have all been about weight and food. It's inevitable that people are going to be talking about it if Chris is talking about it himself and it's relevant to the match. If you want to change the discussion, share something different yourself instead of relying on others to do the work for you.

No. 271639

Anon, discussing his weigh in is not the same as anons going on about his diet and working out and his abs. There's a difference.

No. 271640

Did you forget about the part where all of his recent vlogs and social media posts have been about his weight and food? If it's triggering for you, you don't have to continue reading or you can contribute something new to change the discussion.

MrBeast will be tuning in, people love an underdog and win or lose, Chris stands to gain a lot of new subscribers so it must be worth the possible humiliation or injury. But the demographic of his new fans is going to be very different from his current fans. I think most of the other influencers are gamers.
>His weight is probably better than most guys his age.
If that's what's considered normal in your country for a 30-year old guy of his height, i don't know what to say… To be fair, it wasn't just his weight that concerned him, but also the other test results and how his health had taken a toll on him physically and mentally, making it difficult for him to do tasks, potentially affecting his work etc.

No. 271755

No. 271758

re: Chris's test results - his test results were based on the Japanese standards of health markers - it's likely that if had a similar test in the UK they'd tell him "right-o, you're jolly good, carry on!"

No. 271761

The original title was “Alone Inside Japan’s Creepiest Abandoned Building.” Sharla tweeted photos from there not that long ago, so I guess Chris was afraid people thought he was lying about being alone and changed it?

A minute in a half in, he said he’s only seen one photo of the place and it’s a mystery “with almost no information to go on.” This is a fairly well-known uncompleted stupa in Nishizaou Park in Yamagata that was built for the Nipponzan Myohoji religious group in the 80s and there are lots of photos, blog posts, articles, youtube videos and whatever about it. Maybe he didn’t bother to research it in Japanese or he’s just humoring his viewers, but I don’t get why he’d lie or joke about only seeing one photo because that's impossible. If he did his research, he could’ve done a really interesting video about weird new religions in Japan. Nipponzan Myohoji built the peace pagoda in Milton Keynes in the 80s, which he’s maybe visited himself before.

No. 271763

Your'e saying Chris Broad is guilty of not researching something in Japan that he makes an opinionated video about?

Impossible! Shocking! Breaking News!

No. 271768

Anon I want to get serious for a minute with you. This point your'e making is really relevant. One of the things that has always bothered me (and my Japanese partner) about Chris, is how he fails again and again to exhibit any depth in his work. Even when he makes a doco like he did about the tsunami and its victims, he somehow took a powerful event and rendered it with surface strokes only. He doesn't seem capable of doing any real in-depth research. We think he just isn't that smart at the worst or just likes taking shortcuts at the best. It's always disappointing. The only time we think he managed to break that curse was the video about the Nakagin capsule building in Tokyo where he did seem to do some actual research, he even learned some architecture terms to share. But otherwise he is incredibly shallow and surface-level in almost everything he does. It's really a shame that the biggest gaijin Japan youtuber presents such a cartoon level understanding of Japanese culture and history.

No. 271769

Ha ha, but it's not the lack of research that surprises me, but the pretending that's he's only seen one photo. Fans have argued in this thread that he's one of the first to visit or do x when the places are always known and a lot of people, including other English-speaking foreigners, have already vlogged the place. Now I get why his fans believe that.

No. 271771

that's interesting. yeah chris leverages the general ignorance of his audience.

we've been really into Craig Mod recently who has a newsletter (not a youtuber) and is very much about Japan history and also the modern long-distance walking culture in Japan, doing things like walking Basho's routes, etc - he leads guided tours in Japan but is a writer and researcher. Good stuff. Mature, thoughtful. Makes Chris look like the absolute child that he is.

No. 271772

The Nakagin capsule building has been covered extensively by numerous architectural magazines, NYT and lots of other major news media in English, so he didn't need to put much effort into researching the building. For the stupa, he would've had to google in Japanese to find more than photos although he literally would've found out who made it and why in less than a minute if he did. What's also strange is that he went there again with Sharla according to her, so she wasn't even curious to look it up and he didn't even think to have her try to find anything in Japanese either? Even inputting the address would come up with something.

No. 271773

Did they actually go a second time, or are they trying to pretend that Chris went alone once and then went back again with Sharla after? My money is they went once only and for some weird reason just said "Chris went alone"
If they actually did a second trip though, Chris would have to have done some research to learn about it, especially if it was interesting enough for a second trip, otherwise why else go again?
