This makes my blood boil since Momokun is trying to show off that she knows Fate when fact is, she does not. Although it is true that Fate is an eroge, porn is not the main highlight of the series, and in the context of Saber and actual kinbaku, she doesn't even wear the appropriate cosplay for that that moment. Out of recent memory, two cosplayers actually do it right, here they are for reference: Nemesia
I despise the fact that she mentions the game's roots just to serve her bullshit. She's just a filthy casual pretending to be a core fan and it's outright infuriating.
She feeds off that drama because it makes her feel bigger than how she really is. A lot of people do things to make themselves look special, even if they didn't do much to actually earn it. The fact of the matter is, Kimu on her own is painfully uninteresting. As a cos page admin for the pages she's in, I've had PMs from people and actual cosplayers asking why her content is in the page since up to her Nero Bride set with Inside' Cosplay, all of her pictures before that have been horribly subpar. I just tell them take note on the bottom of the credits, the reason why it doesn't have a signature like most fellow admins is because its her herself posting it. No page admin will post her pics on their own volition, that sheds light on what her reputation truly is.
It's not exactly Youtube that's solely behind that, it's the advertisers holding the leash. h3h3 has a good video about how and supposedly why advertisers are threatening to pull out of Youtube due to creators posting controversial content and yet also be the very advertisers cashing in on CNN during disasters like the Las Vegas shooting: Every Adpocalypse might be sparked by people like PewDiePie or Logan Paul but ultimately it's driven by ad companies that operate on double standards.
Read that statement a few hours ago, a part of her response made me laugh: What makes me laugh is that those followers felt unearned. The quality of her works and selfies were subpar up until she got a shoot with Inside' Cosplay, her updates since then has gotten somewhat better, which i presume is finally due to having a better cellphone or camera. I'd add the accusations of her buying followers, but there's no true way of proving that. The only reason why she was "famous" was because she got modded to huge cosplay curation pages with already a lot of followers in order to promote her own page. Before that she was only within the 8k~9k range. I'm all for progress, but what's gotten my ire is that all I see is ego but no humility. It makes it even worse when she's doing series I like without being fans of those series.
I agree. There's actual remorse there, but in all honesty though, there's no justifying what they did considering Logan's intent going to Aokigahara was in the hopes they'd find a dead body there. That's the thing, intent. Suicide awareness was just an afterthought and the chase for view counts blinded them to that fact.
I wouldn't directly blame Youtube for that. Demonetization in general is driven by bots and no one's quite sure how it works, some say that not even Youtube knows. YMS did a video testing how demonetization works and the whole process almost looks random, even the commenters report being demonetized despite not doing anything that's against Youtube's ToS.
She's getting into it because it's catching popularity, I assume that she got the idea off Dizzmonogatari, the photog that she collabs with now and then. He's mainly the reference for a lot of Kimu's cosplay decisions when it comes to mobages. She's been called out as a fake by people who're actually into the Fate series, so it makes sense why she's backing out of that. That kind of negative rep stays, unless you actually get into the series you're cosplaying, you can't really wash that off. Unfortunately, the comprise the majority of cosplayers out right now. What saddens me is that they've lied to themselves to the point that they keep telling themselves that they do it for art, when it's all just for ego. I've had debates with people who think their non-canon boudoir cos is art and true to the series they're doing when it's clearly not. That said, that doesn't matter. Doing so gives them the attention and money they want. It enforces the cognitive dissonance they have in the process.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Regardless of her personality or her roots, she's a welcome ally. Unless people actually hammer it down, Logan Paul will get away, and we need all the help we can get if we dont want that to happen.
