As someone who lives in SoCal... I feel like autumn here is so short, basically nonexistent. It's starting to barely feel like autumn weather now... I can put on a sweater without getting too hot. Even though other parts of the world might consider November to be the beginning of winter, I feel like it's only the beginning of fall here. It makes me feel excited to see some leaves falling off of trees, or to feel a slight chilly breeze. She claims to love autumn so much, so how come she began acting like it was winter as soon as November hit? The most autumn-y part of autumn hasn't even arrived in SoCal yet! There's so much more time to enjoy autumn! Also, sometimes winter here can drag on, some years it's rainy and gross until February or March, so she still has plenty of time to feel wintery. I don't know why she has her internal clock set a month ahead.
Really... how juvenile is she that she has to act so disgusted over a kiss that looked really cute and innocent to me? She’s what, 22 or something? I mean, if she was disgusted by an explicit sex scene, that’d be one thing, but it was literally just a kiss. Certainly she’s seen plenty of kisses in her life now? Even if she apparently doesn’t like sex or romance herself, does she have to act disgusted over two teenagers on TV sharing a kiss? It just feels immature, but I suppose that’s what she’s going for. Kisses don’t even have to be romantic... people kiss their family and their pets. Some cultures have people kiss their friends. Is it really that disgusting to her?
Gosh, I’m 20 and in college, and I have a lot of friends who haven’t dated and no one really cares...? I mean maybe sometimes people will ask, “Any reason why?” Or “oh, do you want to date someone?” But I have a really hard time believing someone’s going to be ostracized in high school for not dating. Not even at her own age now. Whenever I meet someone who says they haven’t dated, I just assume they don’t care about it at the moment or haven’t met the right person yet. Maybe that they’re a little shy, if that’s who they are. I’d only ever assume something negative about someone not dating if there was something really awful about them (terrible hygiene, misogynistic men, really rude or anti social, etc.)
Tbh I wouldn’t be surprised if she is a super boring, normal person irl and this is all her persona for her YouTube channel. No one is that clumsy or incompetent at the age of 23 or whatever she is. Jordan is probably fine with it because she’s making bank from her channel.
Sheesh... I almost didn't notice it but when you scroll back through her instagram, you can see she's been wearing scarves/handkerchiefs/neckties/turtlenecks for just about YEARS! The only exception is heavily edited photos where she's made everything very white. How sad is it that you're so embarrassed of your natural skin color that you must wear turtlenecks mid-summer so no one could think you might have an olive or golden glow? I almost feel sad for her...
Hmm - I don’t know if the attacked by aliens thing is necessarily that weird, during interviews I’ve been asked really random questions because sometimes employers like to see if you can think on your feet, have a sense of humor to make customers laugh, can have a good time and relax even in a work environment, etc. So maybe it was one of those reasons? Sometimes employers just want to see who you are as a person, not just are you going to be this perfect worker who gets everything done. I mean, they are people themselves too, sometimes they want to have a good laugh during an interview.
I feel kind of creeped out that she is following this little girl. I mean, I love cute little girls too, and if anyone else was following this instagram, I wouldn't find it weird. I am just creeped out because it is specifically Kenna following a little Asian girl with pale hair who wears autumn colors, given her past view of Asian people as "fairies" or whatever.
What is this quote even? It’s gonna be 80+ degrees in SoCal until October AT LEAST and there is no foliage or autumn forests here. Is this sentence even grammatically correct? Seems like a bit of a run on.
I think it's kind of weird a lot of people/videos are calling this "tracing", isn't it pretty normal for learning artists to do this exact thing? Just be able to recreate a photo into a sketch in order to learn the skills of shading, anatomy, etc.? I mean, I never took an art class but I remember my friends who were in art classes always had this exact assignment, where they had to recreate a photo of their choosing as a sketch. They'd have to do things like draw a grid on their piece of paper to start filling in the details of the photo. I think when people do this they aren't necessarily trying to claim they came up with the image and detail from their imagination, it's just to show they can recreate the photo, which takes a lot of talent, too. If that makes sense? HOWEVER, I do agree that she seems to be jacking the KyoAni style instead of coming up with her own unique art. It has the exact same blobby/droopy/shiny/big-eyed look.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPXVfG4AzlQ I haven't seen most her animatics, but I just saw this one and I'm like wtf... why is a character you created in love with YOU? Isn't that kind of conceited? Is Wolfychu just so precious and adorable that she's irresistible not just in the real world but also in her fantasy anime land? And just the fact that Luna being lesbian is always portrayed as either comedic or sexy kinda bugs me.
Is it just me or does she sound extremely strained in the "Floor is Lava" video? And tbh, even if she isn't exaggerating the pitch of her voice, I still feel like she is exaggerating other aspects of it in her storytime videos. For example, talking kind of slow/confused/"moe" like an anime character. Like many other haves mentioned, there are plenty of adults with high-pitched voices who still sound mature!
Her changing the thumbnail is definitely a start! But I'm not really going to approve of her until she makes a video that isn't so shallow/moe. Certainly she has better stories to tell than her skirt flipping up in front of children, or pretty dull and average stories about her in high school. For example... A difficult thing in life she had to overcome? A mistake she made and learned from? Something about her life as an adult other than dates with her boyfriend? To be honest, I don't really see her as a unique human being when watching her stories, more like this poorly conceived cliche character. She should take note of Emirichu (which I know she watches Emirichu, she commented on one of her recent videos.) Emirichu lets her true personality and maturity shine through - yet she is still very relatable and cute to watch.
