    I usually hate when people mention about MIRAs looks because, it's honestly usually not relevant. However, she says she doesn't dye her hair because Japanese value healthy, well-taken care of hair and dying it would damage it. However, is it just me or does her natural hair look very damaged anyway? Maybe it's the color but it looks dull and unkempt.

    Oh gosh, what's this? Is she doing another "Social Experiment" now?

    But she does that in English too. I honestly think she just doesn't care what others say and just wants to talk about what she wants (which is usually herself and some relation to how Japanese she is.)

    Found this recent conversation in the comment section of her video "KANADAJIN3 videos EXPOSED - 私の動画の秘密"
    The last comment (second pic) is especially interesting. She gives the "name" of the elusive "Special VISA" as Teijuusha.
    And I quote: "It is for people who are divorced, been here long time, have no way to get back to their own countries, people with children who go to school here, people with babies. Its a form of permanent residency, but you need to renew it"
    If this VISA is an actual thing she really pulled off some sort of miracle because no way did she have a dire need to stay in Japan such as children or the inability to accustom herself to Canadian life due to being in Japan for years and years.
    Very interesting ....
    (Sorry the 1st comment at the top is actually the last in sequential order of the convo.)

    Official description of the Teijuusha VISA 
    “Long Term Resident” visa is granted for those who are authorized to reside in Japan with designated period of stay by the Minister of Justice taking each applicant’s special situation into consideration. Like other family related visa,this“Long Term Resident” allows you to engage in any kind of work just as Japanese usually do. However, visa extension is still required for this kind of visa holder.This point is quite different from “Permanent Resident” status.
    So what is the said “special situation”? The consultation with our office regarding this kind of visa is mainly by those who fall under the following “special situation”.
    1) Refugees
    2) Descendants of Japanese national by blood
    3) Divorced spouses who are caring their child with Japanese nationality
    4) Parents and children of those “Permanent resident” status and “Spouse/Child of Japanese national”visa holder to live together in Japan
    The types of “special situation” under “Long Term Resident” are not limited to the above example.There are other types of “special situation” stipulated in the official guideline made public by the Minister of Justice.
    Well, it looks like it IS possible for MIRA to have gotten a "special situation" decision. I have no idea how she pulled that off tho.

    Well it must be marriage, right? Because if she were in Japan illegally for any length of time it wouldn't count towards the 5 years I assume? Also, they must have a limit of how long you're allowed to reside outside of Japan (if she was there illegally it would be time counted "outside" of Japan) before the clock starts back at 0 again.

    That makes more sense then. It's not like they can run a morality test on everyone applying for citizenship after all.
    Thanks for your reply @Pearl. Very interesting things to note.
    I am just confused as to how people are saying her Japanese is absolutely horrid; - like "barely understandable", yet she's passed the second hardest language exam in Japan. I understand the concept of "studying for a test" without having much "real-world" ability but it must still be somewhat developed in order to pull that off. Or is she actually a lot better than people are saying?
    Hmmm.

    Wow you learn something new every day. Where did you find out all this information (I mean about Mira's case specifically)? Did she make a video about her paperwork process? I know for a lot of countries it's quite difficult to gain citizenship w/o being married and/or speaking the language at a near fluent level (interview/test scores/etc.) and I may not speak Japanese but from what I gather she isn't that advanced? Maybe it's not checked that strenuously though?
    Even though I have no warm feelings towards MIRA I do hope if she gives up her Canadian citizenship she doesn't regret it later. I wouldn't even wish that on her. I feel like she likes the superficial Japan but doesn't really know the deeper aspects of the culture.
    I also have no idea how she figured out how to get past immigration and work w/o a University degree. (or a high school diploma!) ... AFTER her divorce of course. Shows she's quite manipulative in any case.

    If she's accepted I'll know there's a HUGE flaw in the Japanese immigration system.
    It sounds like she didn't even research the process; which would be one VERY obvious thing to do, for most people. She probably actually thought you get your paperwork in and it's instantly "accepted" not taking into account processing time. She amazes me more and more with her ignorance.

    Thoughts? Do you think she actually applied? Does anyone know the process of Japanese citizenship and can vouch for her comment of it "taking a year 'til accepted"?

     She keeps claiming she's going to have to give up her Canadian citizenship though. Or at least that's something I heard her say before - you wouldn't need to do that for PR. Of course she's a bag of lies but just pointing that out.

    Definitely agree with @glitter. I cannot believe some of the people who make fun of her looks.
    Not everyone is blessed with being beautiful and I don't think anyone should ever be made fun of for something they cannot change. Her personality IS something she CAN change and it's rotten. That is the area people should be focusing on. If you start making fun of someone based on their looks it just makes you a bully.

  15. momentomori added a post in a topic Koreaboos vs Weeaboos   

    Just a comment about the girl in the photo above (calmdostitties) <--- ???
    Yes it does matter if Hi-Chew is gum or not. What is wrong with being educated? Was the Korean girl flipping out because you didn't know? I've been interested in Korean culture since I was 15. I'm in my late 20s now. What distinguished me from a Koreaboo? I listened to my Korean friends when they spoke about THEIR culture. Hi-Chew isn't gum that's a fact. So why not say "Oh, wow I didn't realize that. Thanks for letting me know. Now I know something new about Korean culture." It's a two way street. You can then teach your Korean friends about things that are fact in the U.S (or whatever you're from) as well and voila that's called friendship and actually learning about cultures other than your own. But this girl doesn't really care about Korean culture, does she?
    Oh and this one would freak this girl out. Hi-Chew isn't a Korean brand; it's Japanese. What they sell in Korea is a similar (well, basically the same) product called "My-Chew" (마이쮸)
    Honestly people take the whole Koreaboo/Weaboo thing quite far these days and it's exhausting having to prove yourself if you have a genuine interest but when a Koreaboo is spotted it can be scary. Honestly I met only one. I went to university in Korea and one of my Korean-language classmates was a major Koreaboo ... or at least she appeared to be. At the time I don't believe the term Koreaboo was used yet. But she was 17 at the time so IDK when you're that young I don't like to judge too much. Teenagers are "unique". I'm old now; as in late 20s, haha. I'm married to a Korean man and I'm just glad that he's probably aged out of any Koreaboo's oogling over him just because he's Korean. Do these girls who harass your b/f do so IRL or online? That must be annoying.

    BS. She's weaving a web in order to make a case for her being "more Japanese" than others.; but it doesn't make any sense.  I'm 25% Japanese. Mira is 0% and that will NEVER change. My grandmother was born and raised in Japan and came to the U.S when she was in her early 20s. My grandmother is now an American citizen but she's still ethnically/racially Japanese. Yes she's no longer a Japanese national so in that sense she isn't "Japanese" anymore but her cultural upbringing and ethnicity/race will never change. The same goes for others who lived/were born anywhere. She cannot go back thousands of years because we base our identity on LIVING history. --------------------------  If for example someone who's 0% Japanese was born and raised in Japan then culturally and were never taught anything else YES they ARE Japanese CULTURALLY. BUT it still will never change the fact that they are not RACIALLY Japanese. Mira can study all she wants about Japanese culture; she can change her NATIONALITY, but she will never change her ETHNIC upbringing or RACE and that's just a fact. Good God this woman is delusional in her pursuit of "becoming Japanese".  So by her definition she will never be Japanese either because she never went to school in Japan as a child and wasn't raised in the Japanese culture.
    Mira doesn't seem to know the difference between the words Race, Ethnicity, Cultural and Nationality.

    Next we'll be seeing Mira wearing these pants. LOL. I typed in Japan Thong Bikini and NOTHING came up. Well, these "lovely" pants did. Shows just how much of a "trend" it is that it doesn't even show up on a major search engine.

    Since it's her mother I assume she just says it because it's what her daughter wants. I mean it's likely Miranda's had the conversation of "I'm Japanese now" with her parents and if they want to keep in contact with her they probably have no choice but to go along with it. They might think it's crazy OR they could agree with it (I mean they are her biological parents, so ..) I assume they want their daughter to be "happy" if they love her.

    The little things KJ3 does to try and "act Japanese" piss me the f- off, lol. For example, the way she slurps her noodles in the newest video. I know she's just doing it on purpose to look more Japanese. I'm sure it doesn't come natural to her. She's just waiting for someone to ask "why are you slurping?" so she can reply it's because "it's the way WE do it IN JAPAN" Haha. Like if anyone else followed these cultural quirks I'd think they were being respectful and praise them but with KJ3 it's just annoying and like she's trying so hard to fit in and look superior to other foreigners in Japan.
    Does anyone else feel this way?

    OK I haven't read past the first post but .. this girl really sounds like she's created a kind of "character" as a sort of weird joke. Maybe making fun of Weaboo's? IDK I mean she says .... and I quote....
    "faggoty fuccboi fob" and "fatty Asian boy" .... ??? I mean, these are both very offensive.
    Then she mixes Korean and Japanese words together??? IDK this girl seems like she's trolling. I refuse to believe this is true and if it is she is beyond crazy.
     
    Edit. Just read through the post and others have questioned this as well. But I get a thumbs down for having an opinion. Okay? ...

    Time is running out I think we'd better have a place set at least a few days before this forum goes down because I'd hate not knowing where to discuss Mira
    .... I can't believe this place is shutting down - been coming here for probably over 2 years now - it was before Mira has her own thread anyway.

    Don't mean to be rude, but I found this a bit offensive.
    If someone has a connection with Japan their race shouldn't matter. What about someone who's married into a Japanese family? What about someone who grew up in Japan but isn't ethnically Japanese? What about someone who's part Japanese but doesn't appear Japanese in your eyes? (I'm 1/4 Japanese, but it's not like people would say "OMG Yes I could tell you're mixed with Japanese")
    Also, you say you find offense if someone who isn't "Asian" wearing Japanese traditional dress. All Japanese are Asian but not all Asians are Japanese, so ... what would the difference between someone who's ethnically Chinese or Indian wearing Kimono and someone who's European or African wearing one?

  24. momentomori added a post in a topic Koreaboos vs Weeaboos   

    I wasn't so secret, it just wasn't something to be embarrassed about when I was into it. I'm getting old so, yeah - I was more of the Shinhwa/DBSK early 2000s era. I listened to a lot of Korean music (and watched a lot of K-Drama) then and people thought this was really unique at the time. I remember when Big Bang debuted (and Wonder Girls; where are they now?).
    Honestly there's nothing wrong with liking KPOP, in a healthy way. If it's someone's gateway into the very wide world of Korean culture, NICE!. But when everything you think about Korea is based on KPOP it's gone too far. This is a reputation that the few have inflicted on the whole and you can't really say you listen to it anymore without judgment. Like I said, I'm getting a bit older so I have no idea what all the new KPOP bands are and they all sound the same to me now anyway.
    I'll say that within Korea there isn't really the same stigma though. Most people in Korea are still thankful for KPOP even if the initial excitement is waning a bit. My husband is Korean and when I showed him a Koreaboo compilation he still said (paraphrasing) "They like something about Korea, they are young and I thank them for showing Korea to the world - weren't you ever weird as a teenager?". Touche husband. The sad thing is video is so common now so they have their cringy-ness recorded for the world to see, .. forever. At least I got to delete my Xanga.

  25. momentomori added a post in a topic Koreaboos vs Weeaboos   

    They're both cringy. However Koreaboo's probably bother me more because they didn't even really exist when I first started liking Korean culture and now they seem to be everywhere. I used to get people saying to me  "Oh, it's so cool you like Korean culture! What about Korea do you like?" and now I sometimes get "Oh, did you get into Korean culture because of KPOP?" Ahh... This started changing I'd say ... 5 years ago.
    I went to a bookstore in Koreatown in NYC recently and there were some Koreaboos in one shop screaming over some KPOP merch. It was so cringy because a ton of people were staring at them. The last time I was in NYC (10+ years ago) I got a free CD because I said to the shop owner "Yeah I'm really interested in Korean culture and I listen to Korean music sometimes" ... Oh how things have changed....
    It's rather sad that I have to say "No, I don't like KPOP but I do like some Korean music because ....bah blah blah" and go off on a whole spiel because of Koreaboos.
    Thank God I actually took studying Korean seriously ...
