im not saying she SHOULD be a model. i think shes a useless piece of shit. but like.... she cant speak japanese so shes not going to be getting any acting work. regardless of her social blade updates, she still does have a sizeable following on youtube, i can see plenty of agencies wanting to take advantage of that.
honestly i think jvlogging has just gone downhill in general because the internet is so SATURATED with it. between high profile vloggers to smaller more personable people, to even fucking tokyo creative or buzzfeed worth it, the actual idea of traveling TO japan is starting to feel a lot more commonplace than it did, say, 5 years ago. Whenever Simon and Martina moved in, there already was less of a demand for it. They thought they could move to japan and just do the same thing that they did in korea, and honestly... i never really enjoyed their japan videos as much as their korean ones. in japan, it felt like the took on this persona of YOUTUBE TOUR GUIDE OF THE WORLD, HERE ARE ALL THESE COOL THINGS THAT WE ARE SHOWING YOU. like, they have that guy Dan or whatever who actually speaks japanese and just goes around filming them and ordering for them and managing their lives because they dont even speak japanese. whereas when they were in korea... they were more just living their lives, and filming videos of them genuinely discovering things. yes they planned videos, yes they felt the need to have a STUDIO, yes they had that weird coffee shop they tried to open???, but like... idk if i'm making much sense, but back in korea they had a few videos of them trying to find the Coffe Prince coffeeshop, and it was just them wandering around this town, wandering around the woods, etc. I thought it was funny and fun to watch these two silly people being silly. They don't really have videos like that in Japan. Yes, Martina's EDS is getting worse, and yes they are dealing with deaths in the family and hard times, but i feel like they are just trying so hard to make their JAPAN CHANNEL work... when their korea channel just worked way more organically.
socially awkward guy swears he watched all of texan in tokyo vids yet couldn't remember that their name isn't 'texan in japan', then performs being upset that some strangers dont want to sit and talk with him for a whole train ride.
lest we forget that shitsune is a, what, high school dropout (?) who deemed that conventional schooling was just NOT FOR HER, do we really think she's going to get anything out of language school? or, let's be honest, does anyone think she's going to make it through the year?
maybe i'm just confused by hannah snow in general? she always shows up as like THE CUTE SILENT FRIEND, but she's kind of everywhere?? idk. i don't get it? maybe she's just nice lol. but anyway this is the dodie thread and dodie tends to only keep really annoying friends in her life for good (evan edinger, dan layton, etc) while cycling through the more chill ones.
