I think Mikan n her new 'boy friend' are just playing with her followers n trying to confuse them cause British banter...they both look like the kind of people to sarcastically joke or play around with people's assumptions
Agree with the accent..I feel her bro sounds more natural compared to her. Like is more down-to earth whist Mikan expects rainbows to fly out also the snacks she choose don't look that unique and by that I special mean the Kit-Kat. That Ruby favour is also sold in the UK...(I also tried it and I can confirm it does taste like that) SO its not that unique a flavour in Japan...maybe a Matcha or Sweet potato one might have been interesting but this was meh..
Just something interesting/// So on NHK World, theses a program called Kawaii Internationl, on the latest episode 'How to make it in Japan' they introduced a couple of designers/fashionista that made it to Japan. What caught my eye was a Bunka fashion graduate called Choom who like Mikan was from London and then moved to Japan. Choom also is editor in cheif of her own fashion magazine called The Comm (https://the-comm.online/en/) which is still developing. On Choom insta u can see clips from her section https://www.instagram.com/p/B4sYxdVHQnj/. Choom also does Youtube . SO is Mikan entering Bunka or learning Japanese in sort time be highly praised? at the moment she isnt really established or has a proper basis...shes just a undergrad student if she really want to make it big she ganna need more work not just posting model like images on insta or youtube. When it comes to posting on Youtube i feel nor its more like a gamble u can never tell how many views u get on one vid.
Just a theory Funny enough in the new vid she was saying getting a marriage visa was a bad idea...but if for instance Hiro and Mikan continued dating n eventually got married wouldn't it mean Mikan can have marriage visa?? Is this way Mikan was so upset Hiro broke up with her cuz that meant she wouldn't have the marriage visa card ? When it comes to international marriages there is never a straight answer...some go well but others crumble down so Mikan can't say much. If Mikan didn't consider fashion school herself that meant she didn't know what she wanted to do and only came to Japan to fulfil her weeb dream (just admit it theres no shame in it)/ was very tired of the UK. If she majored in Japanese course than that would have been useless to use in UK. When one of her friends suggested Fashion school , Mikan might have taken the exam just to see her chances and since she passed them decided to stay longer but the fashion school wasn't prepared at all hence she had to ask her mum for money to fund it.
If Hiro's family want to spend money on Mikan's food and all then it's up to them. It might just have been a friendly gesture or even as basic hospitality. Idk if Hiro's parents know about the break up but in the end Mikan is a foreigner living on her own isolated from her parents cuz shes in Japan so rather than abandon her they rather support her, so even if she leaves Japan someday she has good memories and doesn't end up in a troublesome situation. So far I recall Mikan say her parents/mum sends her money (to pay for fashion school) if Mikan asks money from Hiro's family it's completely different case which can be annoying or taking advantage of their kindness. In addition, for all we know Mikan might be the first foreigner ex-gf/friend of Hiro and Japanese people do like to learn about different cultures/ are open to many foreigners now. As for Mikan's Japanese level which tends to get debated alot I'd say N3 UNTIL she proves otherwise (certificate or something)
I remember posting something on the lines of that Mikan doesn't show her making the clothing or like design ideas n a few weeks/days later she put a video of her doing fashion homework...whats in her fashion school bag etc. the video seemed planned than 'it just so happened' or her excuse sometimes 'many followers were asking for one'
This needs to be framed on the thread wall or plated in gold lol I'm not an expert in Japanese but from all her videos with her Japanese 'friends' she only talked using casual which is pretty basic stuff not really business/keigo level.
300 for a cheap looking smoll bag...moreover a bag that doesn't even look like the image shown on the site...coincidentally it reflects MIkan's personality quite well
Extra evidence to support Hiro account could be controlled by Mikan (more) n Hirokazu 1) Hiro profile pic on instagram has Mikans room decorations behind..notice the light balls 2) Bio mentions 'without mutual respect' , which is odd since Mikan constantly says her and Hiro are mutual n theres no bad blood. 3) Amount of followers is wayyyy too much n odd especially since they broke up.
Correct me if Im wrong but... Mikan: Born Kurdish but claims to be Swedish, doesn't like the UK at ALL Also Mikan: Bashes her friend online when comments say: 'I think that's offensive to your friend etc. That's quite agressive' Mikan be like: 'no, no that's British humor its only banter blah blah blah.../ my sarcasm she gets me I wasn't being meann hehe' Does she use the British humor card when shes under attack from her follower? Yes. Yes she does...
^Agree with you! For anyone not aware of Japanese: Mikan in the video uses the word 'Damare' (おだまりください) which is a very rude way to say 'be quiet', she adds Kudasai (please) to make it sound polite but I think it's still concerned rude since the word 'damare' is quite harsh toned..(I from a Japanese person was told it is extremely rude so I stopped referring to it ) I'd love for a Japanese person on this forum to add their input or analyse the two girls behaviour in the video. And also does she really need to take her camera to school n start recording? Like she could have just chatted to her Japanese friends than be those kind of people who are on social media 24/7. The main theme of the video was to meet her 'long time' friend Piper...so why not record at the station greeting her or hugging her than start with banter? Even the clip to the shopping mall place was pointless-Piper having just come that day might have been tired n just wanted to catch up as friends or just relax than take on/ impress 1 million subs. And if Mikan knew she would be in a mood with her than why record the meeting with her why not let her settle down n record with her the next day
