    Wait Lululemon  is problematic? I didn't know that!
     
    And yes, Taylor lost quite some weight during the last year. Good for her, honestly, also from what I saw she did it in a healthy way: work out and proper nutrition.
     
    I like osharegirl for something very simple: I like her. She seems to be pretty real and not fake. And after the whole Talyor R-Kim-Mimei-Sharla jvlogger yawn fake fest I was kinda surprised to find normal people vlogging there. I can understand that for some it's boring, but these two and also Loretta basically vlog their lives their. Osharegirl works after all and is married to a Japanese man. Loretta makes content about university. Here and there they travel and go out. I can see how this is boring, but I like watching it, because it feels genuine. And with all three of them I have the feeling they do target an audience 20+ (not teens unlike Taylor or Kim)
    Of course for someone looking for a different kind of content (like cars and bikers like pineappleVera said, or even travel vlogs, I would definitely watch someone else. Taylor and osharegirl are mostly about daily life, cooking, working out, hanging out, fashion. ^^

    Though to be fair it has been months since we saw Sharla acting like a teen or obsessing over a fandom, right? Granted I haven't seen her last video yet.

    I would instantly watch Sasaki Asahi if she had subtitles on her vlog. But as it is... I just don't undertsand a word. She is so sweet though.
     
    As for the fukubukuro videos: I think the worst this year are Kim's videos. She got a bunch of bags, but doesn't seem to be excited about any of them. It wasn't even fun to watch her.
    Osharegirl at least got two bags from brands that fit her overall style. And Taylor B chose a sports brand she loves (and liked all the items)
     
    @Nonamesan: Do all brands tell you what's inside the lucky bags beforehand? I thought some things were kept a secret?

    I don't like the outcome of her lip injections at all (I low-key hoped that it's from the braces she got or just some weird lip plumper she used) But, I mean, honestly, Micaela's insecurities are Micaela's problem not Rachel's and it's not Rachel's job to do or not do something with her body because of Micaela. It's not like she is rubbing it under her nose. If anything - when we consider Micaela's issues - it would probably be more difficult for her that Rachel is skinny, has long silky hair and gets compared to an elf all the time. Her lips are probably the lesser problem.

    I bet in case anyone ever even considered comparing her to Mulan, it's because they know no other Chinese person.
    Or more likely: She made it up. Tehehe, I look like Mulan~

    At this point I would really make a respectful callout towards Micaela. She and Tatsu adopted an old poodle-lady. I just watched their video where they welcomed the new family member. It seems they talked about adopting for a while already (Tatsu was a bit uncertain about getting a second dog, because he would have to leave for work a lot and didn't want to load all the work on Micaela), wanting to adopt older dogs form now on, instead of one young puppy. I found their approach very mature.
     
    As for Taylor B: I think her vegan lifechoice is genuine. I've watched a lot of her videos, and she really seems to be invested in the vegan community in Japan and try to make things as correct as possible. Which is why I was so surprised she shopped a puppy - from a petstore on top of that. If at least she would have driven to the countryside and visited an actual breeder who just has a few dogs (don't know how all of this works in Japan, but I mean... not a puppymill) Her puppy didn't even come vaccinated...she had to wait for her appointment at the vet before she could even take the puppy outside.
    Japan's pet industry really doesn't sit well with me :-/
     
     
    Edit: Something completely unrelated: Have you watched a few fukubukuro videos? Is it just me or are the lucky bags this year pretty mediocre? I watched a lot of them because lots of youtubers I follow got a few, and it's just not really overwhelming... Everyone always says that lucky bags are a good deal. But imo they cost around 100USD and in it there are items one would have never bought for themselves. And the item choice isn't really great either. I think the only lucky bag I liked was the one osharegirl got. But the W♡C and Secret Honey ones were pretty bland. I just honestly don't think it's that good of a deal (or maybe I personally just grew out of them)
    Admittedly the lululemon one Taylor B got wasn't bad. And the Cecil McBee one from Kim was pretty decent too (although she got an item she already received two years ago...)

    I think a mix between a cute style and a more mature, elegant one would suit her well, but... whatever floats her boat I guess.
    However I think her lucky bag was pretty crappy. I mean, some items were sweet, but quite some of the items were mediocre. So to her defence I have to say that she did carry herself well in the video. It's obvious that she wasn't overly excited over the items, but she still gave very careful judgements about the stuff in the back. Because one thing i have noticed about this kind of videos is: WOW, people get butthurt so easily! I'm literally speechless at how the comment sections on some videos are full of people moping around how unthankful this youtuber is etc. Also the amount of dislikes on some videos is huge. Jeez, people, this person paid $100 for a bag in hope of cute/cool/elegant - depending on the brand - stuff, but got a bag full of crappy leftovers no one wanted.

    I'm not sure who you are, but when new users are on this board and the first thing they do is to wk two snowflakes people here feel suspicious of them immediately. It has happened way too often that snowflakes come to this place with sockpuppet accounts.

    As someone else said: Especially since cat-proofing an apartment is not that difficult... But well, I guess she really wanted a pet asap. I can't think of any other reasoning for someone like her not to adopt...

    Awesome that you dropped by in this thread! How is it for foreigners in Japan who want to adopt a pet? Are there any difficulties? Is it more difficult to adopt in Tokyo than somewhere else?
     
    We started discussing this topic because Taylor - a vegan jvlogger - bought a puppy. And she is a serious vegan, I think. I saw a video in which she was very upset that she got served meat instead of her vegan burger (I think it was a burger) and accidentally took a bite from it. She also seems to be quite thoughtful of the environment etc. Which is why I for one was so surprised she bought a puppy instead of adopting one.
     
    I kinda like her and her content. And she seems genuine. But I still... don't get it.
     
     
     

    Nice list, thank you! Recently I prefer smaller channels over the really huge ones. They are more genuine and real, I think. So this list gives me new channels to support!

    Interesting!! Do you also have information about adopting dogs? If yes, you could also head over to the jvlogger general thread and share your information there! (in case you haven't already) We just recently discussed this topic there because a jvlogger bought a petstore puppy, but most of us weren't certain about the situation in Japan and how to adopt dogs etc.

    I don't doubt that she works, I also don't doubt that she worked from the age of 16 on, but I can't believe she can afford the lifestyle she has, the school, Tokyo, her shopping hauls etc. without financial support. There are jvloggers who support themselves, they are living on their own in Japan, work, and their lifestyle is so different!
     
    Oh and since we discussed money and expenses in Tokyo, also in concern of the other "self-financing" youtubers, Kel made this video, in which he counts together all his expenses!

  14. Risa added a post in a topic Kim Dao   

    Okay, I know this might sound weird, but did anyone else notice how often Kim presses the point that she is a size XS? I watched most of her clothing haul videos from the last months, if not all, and her current lucky bag unboxing. In every video she mentions it several times "I'm small/I'm a small frame/I'm an XS etc" - it's a theme by now, and honestly, it's getting a bit annoying. What I find weird is that while she definitely is thin, she doesn't seem to be that skinny? I don't want to shame her body or anything, because as I said, she has a slender frame, but she emphasizes her being skinny so much, it surprises me.

    Okay, I hate to say this... but this video was kinda cute. Maybe because they didn't talk much and it was really short. Their outfits could improve too, but I surprisingly didn't hate the video.
