Heck with the way she's been going if you want to throw the Lunestelle thread in there that's cool too
Separate threads for pictures (which there are a ton of, we can compare shoops vs reality and stuff) and videos (which there are less of so those will probably get lost in the other stuff if not separated) like the Venus subforum would probably be good.
Page 499. This is the third thread, so there have been nearly 1,500 kankerpages in total. Stuff is getting lost and forgotten because it's buried in the thread somewhere so sourcing is a pain in the ass. She's EASILY the most talked-about flake on this site. So, subforum? To organize everything? Maybe? Anyone? Anyone?
Re:Xiao, I remember they took a picture when they bumped into each other in Korea when Xiao was on vacation, and when people called her out for siding with an abuser she was like "Huh? I know nothing about that and I don't keep up with this shit." When she took the picture it was with the idea of saying that the drama happened years ago, and it was good to move on. Except... there's still drama with Margo. I'd dig through the Maggot thread for sources because I remember it being in there but I'd have to sift through pages and pages of it and ngl I'm not up for that hell. Unlike Natalia, Xiaorishu's presence on Youtube has become kind of... irrelevant? She recently went to Japan and did a bunch of videos with The Anime Man but I don't feel like she's as deep in it as Natalia is so it's totally believable that she didn't know what was up. I wouldn't blame her after what happened if she'd been making a point of not knowing.
I'm glad they've buried the hatchet, you know? I'm sure Natalia saw the Venus runaway situation when it happened (it was a big deal), and it wasn't shocking. Virtually the whole internet aside from Margo stans suspected abuse by Margo anyway, just look at this site's outdated banner. So it was pretty easy to divorce Venus from the nasty things she said online to other girls before... because it was pretty clear it was Maggot the whole time. As we know. Natalia's a 'kawaii' youtuber with a history tied to Venus so I'm sure she was more than just casually aware of the situation. If anything, this just shows how far Venus has come in overcoming her demons. When she first arrived in Japan to live there with Manaki she had never had a friend in her life and had a mother who positioned other girls as her enemies, so she sloooowwwwlllly made friend with girls like Taylor, super reluctantly. It makes sense that she was nervous and reluctant. But someone she specifically had bad history with when she was stuck with Marg? The fact that she's willing to pal around with Natalia is HUGE. I'm sure behind the scenes, the two have come to an understanding. Say what we want about Nat but this is super healthy development for Venus. I'm actually pretty excited that Venus is going to Närcon because aren't the UK Galaxy Girls regulars there? I remember they went as a group one year. It'd be good for Venus to have a chance to make peace with Kelsey and the like.
Re: dates and deets on who copies who, I'd love to see that. Pretty sure I remember it going both ways during the initial drams. What sucks is that Lune was never able to make her own identity after this, but that's pretty much her fault. Its killing me to agree with a Kenna wk but it's true, they're not on the same level. At all.
This has gotten super weird. Aren't they both in Temecula? Imagine being the object of someone's obsession... who's in the same town. Like, does she go to the same places? What if they run into eachother? Eeek. Correct me if I'm wrong but for some reason I feel like I remember that both of them live in Temecula
It was sad seeing her crying on her insta stories this morning. It's ridic to cry over instagram but if you ever looked past the more recent pictures you'd see that it went waaaaaay back, and insta is a creative outlet for her and also a way to archive her memories. She's got other shit going on too and this wasn't the only thing she was crying about but it's fair if it was the thing that tipped her over into crying. She's had a rough year. I hope she can get her pics back.
Eh. I don't think the pressure is on someone like Abi, living in the UK, to learn Japanese language and customs as much as it is on the J-vloggers, someone like Taylor R who actually lives there and does not bother to learn the language. Abi? She's just a diehard anime fan. I don't think she ever billed herself as anything more than a weeby geek (correct me if I'm wrong! )
I do think that out of the four core UK kawaii Youtubers, she is def the most annoying of the bunch. Beckii? Boring but real. Noodle? Seems like a perfectly alright, smart woman. Kelsey? Tryhard, but talented (and who can fault you for trying anyway???) Abi? Fake. Obnoxious. I agree, "What's the Point"? Like, what's even her thing???? Loli incest anime?
