    I'd like to think Yumi's smart enough to realize that very little about  those kind of shows are historically accurate,  but maybe that's giving her too much credit...  There's nothing wrong with history  inspired hairstyles and clothing,  but yumi prob doesn't know the difference. I feel like it should be obvious that shows with fairies and what not aren't historically accurate.

    I think lots of cosplayers and social media influencers try to have their pages be very aesthetic-y and so they might delete some comments they feel don't fit their aesthetic. So maybe knite just wants her page to be really positive? Maybe she's just insecure about her use of photoshop. We'll never know her exact reasons for deleting this or any other comments.  Ennui could have been more polite, but i don't think the comment was that rude. I think they had good intentions. Lots of social media influencers get comments on their very photo shopped pics about how perfect they are. But they're not that perfect in real live. No one is. It can be hurtful to fans when they see such unrealistic pictures as a goal or a standard for themselves. I don't think calling out unrealistic standards is a bad thing. As far as knite deleting the comments, I think it's a bit sketch but def not the sketchiest thing she's done. Everyone's here to discuss knite, not whether or not it's okay to leave mildly rude comments on people's public pictures or whether or not someone has the right to delete said comments.  This is a gossip site. There's nothing wrong with liking knite, but this isn't a site for white knighting. Hope it's okay to put my two cents in. I normally only lurk knite's forum.

    She grew out her bangs so she could do historical hairstyles right? Didn't she say that in a video? That having no bangs allows her to do ancient Chinese hairstyles, and then she can wear clip on bangs for her "normal" outfits. But she keeps wearing the clip on bangs with her wanna be accurate ancient Chinese hairstyles and her hanfu. She can either dress historically accurate or she can dress up like a hanfu fairy from a C drama, but if she wants to be a pretty hanfu princess fairy then she needs to admit it's a costume.

    Didn't Irene say this was splenda's daughter's room not Yumi's? I'd that's true yumi either took it over when the kids weren't there or kicked the girl out so she could film. If splenda hasn't been paying child support I doubt he'd get visitation rights so maybe it's his daughter's room but she hasn't stayed in it for some time so yumi took it over. One of my friends married someone who was divorced with kids and had full custody of the kids and he and my friend had to be married before they could live together as part of the custody  agreement. Different situations but I thought I'd bring it up.

    Happy almost Halloween my peeps! I've got some scary yumi gifs for you!
    We'll start with Yumi and splenda dancing as an undead couple from Halloween last year. 

    Next we have some gifs of yumi eating. *shudder*

    I would include the gif of splenda licking his lips while looking at yumi but I refuse to save such a horrifying picture on my phone. So instead have a picture of splenda awkwardly touching Yumi's boob.
    I'm sure you're all crying from being subjected to such horror. 
    So have a look at this gif of yumi actually looking cute and happy.
    Happy Halloween everyone! Stay spooky.

    Idk why this last gif showed up, but the more gifs the merrier I guess.

    So I did a Google search to find some older yumi gifs and y'all googling yumi king dancing gifs was both hilarious and kinda scary. Just in time for Halloween. I'm on mobile so I hope the gifs show up. 

    This beautiful edit was done by Qualle in the original yumi thread.
    Next we have gifs made by Teabii from Yumi's valentines video. Link to summary of the video: She's on the phone with splenda and he tells her there's a red envelope. She freaks out thinking the envelope has money and is then disappointed. 


    This is the one where Yumi's dad tells her he found her a job using her degree. Yumi obvs has better things to do.

    I know this is a bit late, but I think yumi thinks the ears she bought are made with actual cat fur. The original thumbnail says real cat fur. I think this is why she made so many comments about the cats being happy. Like she really thinks that the etsy shop owner brushes these happy cats and turns the fur that came off the cats while brushing into cute cat ears for cute  Hanfu princesses which is so much better for the environment than fake fur. (Because she cares soooo much about the environment with all her cheap, plastic clothing.) I don't think she knows anything about owning cats or how a lot of things work in the real world. I think she might just be stupid enough to think the ears are made with real cat fur.
    Hanfu princesses are just so busy! She has so much to do in a day! She has to wake up, brush her hair, delete angry youtube comments, make instant ramen, stare into the mirror for an hour, open a new taobao package, try on new clothes, twirl in front of the mirror in new clothes, make husband take her to grocery store, film shopping, get take out, film eating takeout, do facemasks, and do 19 hours of video editing. She doesn't have time to research her sponsors or learn about the fur industry! She's too innocent! Of course all cat ears are made from cat fur from happy cats! 
    I'm sorry this is really long. I went on a tangent and couldn't stop. But really, she's never brushed a cat in her life. She doesn't know that you can't use cat fur to make things.

    it looks like she hasn't washed her hair in days. I'm lazy about washing my hair sometimes but I don't have a youtube channel. If she's worried washing it everyday will hurt it she should use dry shampoo. Or just not use the cheapest shampoo at the store. I can't see her buying expensive shampoo though. Dry shampoo is expensive too. Yumi, just use baby powder.

    Because instant powdered water™ doesn't wash face masks off as quickly as wet water.
    I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. I'll see myself out.

    Venus and Margo do look a lot alike, but I think when people call Margo ugly they're talking about her inner beauty (or lack there of). She's an old bitter, crazy lady and even in her nicer photos it's hard to forget that she's abusive and wants revenge on her daughter. Venus isn't perfect or drop dead gorgeous, but when she smiles and is herself  she's so pretty. She seems like the type of person you could be friends with and have a conversation with. She's beautiful on the inside. Margo isn't. Even though Margo looks good for her age I don't think I'll ever find her pretty.

    Did she edit her before hairline in the video thumbnail? Her hairline in the video looks bad but not that bad. It looks like she extended her forehead with snow in the thumbnail. 
    Edit: On second look at the thumbnail, I don't think the hairline pictures are of her... Idk why she likes to use random pictures of other Asian girls on her thumbnails.

    Too bad the doll's outfit isn't 15 different shades of pink with a weird themed purse.

    I thought she said grandchild not white child. I didn't watch the whole thing so we could be talking about different parts, but I heard it as "my mom wants a grandchild." With her exaggerated accent it sounded like gwinechild so I'm not really sure now what word she was really saying so I could be wrong.

    She said her English isn't good enough to be an interpreter, just good enough for daily stuff. 
    I know like 5 other people are going to mention this but at the end Splenda started singing "yumi yumi prettiest girl on the world wide web!" off camera.
    She'll try to stream one more time this week. She's going to do a weight loss anime dance with us. Who's looking forward to working out with Yumi?

    I watched some of her live stream. She's just answering questions. Here are some screen shots. It was pretty boring. Probs won't watch any more.
    I wanted to get one of her smiling but she always covers her mouth with her hand when smiling or laughing. I feel like the last pic is her "getting tired of this s**t" expression. I think she has clip on bangs on. You can kinda see her real bangs parted underneath them and where the clip in starts on the first two pics. The clip in bangs still look quite oily somehow.
    Her English wasn't horribly horrible. It took me awhile to figure out when she saying twitch (twach). Her mother wants a grandchild (gwinechild). She talked about her fav drama (alternating between drummer and dramer) that she couldn't remember the title of but she talked about it on instagram. She talked just a bit about sewing and changed the subject. She met her husband for the first time in Seattle. She wants to visit China and other surrounding countries so she wants to learn Korea and Japanese. (She said Korea not Korean, twice.) She took Japanese in college but has forgotten. If she was to get a job she would want to make an app since that's what she majored in at college. I think that's about it for what she said while I was watching. Occasionally she would say a few words in good English. The rest of her talking was mostly "Chinese person just learning English" with some unintelligible words thrown in.
