Kenna, stop it with the "Waiting for approval on something" every single week. Say it with me: "I am lazy with poor time management and don't care about my youtube 'job' because granny and grandpa left me enough money to be unemployed for a decade. My videos are late every week because of my own flaws, not Youtube's."
I really like her current hair, the way she styled the bangs makes them look fluffy and light, the length of the cut is really cute, and the color looks natural yet still eye-catching. But she NEEDS to lose the rat-tail strands next to her face. They look choppy and messy. Whyyy does she keep them after all of these years. Just so when she ties her hair up she can have them next to her face? Is she maybe embarrassed by her jaw or something and feels the need to cover them up? But if so, it wouldn't make sense to be getting so much botox. Anyhow, I feel her face is on a downward trajectory now. Either she keeps getting more and more botox over time to sustain its current shape, making it look even more stiff and unnatural, or she stops botox and her face will start to sag oddly. Botox just seems like a bad choice to me, especially when she's only THIRTY and she seems to be using such high quantities of it...
What are we thinkin, y'all? Is she going to go Anglophile or Francophile? Is she going to be cosplaying as Harry Potter and prance down mysterious London alleyways, or is she going to be wearing berets and carrying around baguettes in front of the Eiffel tower? 🤔 Wild card: going to Greece and becoming a mythology fangirl. Perhaps even start viewing herself as a descendant of a Greek goddess or some BS like that. Kenna's got some big life decisions coming up. Let's see what she chooses.
I'm applying for medical school right now and HEKK. It is stressful. I applied to ~40 medical schools because each medical school has roughly a 2% acceptance rate. All summer I had to write essays for these schools. Finally I've been interviewing recently but it's so tiring and so much money to fly all over the country. I used up basically all the money I saved up from childhood and now I owe $1000 on my credit card. There's one school that's literally 15 minutes away from my house but I just didn't do great on the interview. I didn't get along with the professor who interviewed me, and I said some things that stepped on his toes. I got waitlisted, and I've heard there's a good chance to get off the waitlist, but I won't find out for 6+ months. I'm just stressed all the time... I really hope to receive an acceptance from another interview sometime soon. I hope it's all worth it when I'm a doctor
Here's an actually unpopular opinion but I'm just not that impressed with AOA on Queendom, despite everyone seeming to think they deserved better than 4th place. I really care about vocalists and I just don't think AOA has very good vocalists. I don't think they'd sound good without the backtrack. I don't find their dancing that great either. Their opening performance of them doing a hip-hop routine looked very sloppy and off-tempo for me. I think it was too difficult for them. And I hate to say it but their Miniskirt dance is a lot of them bending up and down, wiggling their asses, and squatting. But none of it was that complex or interesting. I thought it was a nice remix and still a fun performance to watch but I just don't feel like they bring a ton to the table compared to groups like Mamamoo with legitimately amazing vocals. Honestly I don't think AOA would have gotten popular if not for their ass-centric music videos and decently catchy songs. Like... what are they really bringing to the table aside from being sexy, good-looking, and subpar vocals and dance?
I'm not sure if this has been posted here but if so I think it's time to bring it back! For those who don't feel like watching the video, it's why there's a problem with jumping straight into anime drawing without learning the essentials first, like realism, drawing human anatomy based on real people, and so on. Jumping straight into drawing anime lets people feel like they are making "advanced" artwork without learning the basics, and it looks wonky. Like if you're a 10 year old and you start drawing anime, maybe you can draw an entire scene - several characters, with interesting hairstyles and outfits, doing cool poses, making interesting facial expressions, and so on. And it might look good at first glance. But then if you look again, there are many things that are not right. Perhaps the legs are the wrong length, and bent in a way real legs don't bend. Maybe the clothes and hair are defying gravity in an unnatural way. Maybe the angles and perspectives are totally wrong, like someone standing further away from the camera is too tall. I think this is the problem with Spechie. She wants to draw really "advanced" stylized artwork without understanding basic things like anatomy, shading, and coloring. The reality is, great anime artists don't start out drawing anime, they first learn how to draw reality. (Sorry if this didn't make sense - the video probably explains it better than I do!)
Whoever wrote that article probably masturbates to lolis who aren't aged up and are angry to see their pedophile tendencies being called out. We're not "muh sjws being offended because they're lame11!" we're people (a lot of us young-ish women) who don't enjoy literal children being turned into something to wank to. Sorry for having morals. And @ basically all her artwork of women: Hate the floating boobs. Boobs don't levitate and stay super perky and circular when they're big, especially not THAT huge like she draws them. Real boobs are more teardrop-shaped and have gravity to them. They hang downwards, they don't float upwards like her art. And boobs dropping down a little isn't gross or a turn-off, it shows that they're realistic and have some weight to them. Don't know why someone would like to gaze at anime boobs that look like they're floating off into the sky like a pair of UFO's.
Oh lordt. We're entering a new Kenna era: the European Intellectual. She is going to stay in an AirBnb in an "aesthetic" place like France or England, purchase books on Greek mythology to decorate her bookshelf, and posts photos of busts in museum and act like she understands them perfectly. Of course, we can't forget taking photos of baguettes and coffee in trendy cafes, before she adds 12 cubes of sugar and dilutes it with milk. Not to mention taking a photo of her wearing something weird like a leather corset and long white skirt at Station 9 3/4. Can't wait for our new Anglophile Kween 😇 (Until she realizes that many European countries have their own issues like smelly dirty streets, people smoking in public, and not being literal scenes from Harry Potter brought to life. Then she's gonna move onto Korea or some other trendy country.)
I'm sorry but knowing or writing about Greek mythology does not make you special, unless you're putting some kind of unique and new twist on it, which I'm sure Kenna is not. Greek mythology is probably one of the most commonly referenced things in literature over the past thousands of years... And idk about everyone else but I had to learn about Greek mythology in 9th grade English and I'm from California, so I wouldn't be shocked if she had to as well? But of course it's typical Kenna to assume she's vastly superior to everyone for her 9th grade education.
I think my thing about making lewds of 15-17 year old anime characters is, well, they usually look almost the same as adult anime characters at that point, a lot of times they've been written by adults, and act like adults, but have been set in a high school setting just to make a good story. Teenage years is when most people begin exploring their sexual identity anyways. High schoolers in anime are pretty physically and mentally developed. So adding 1-2 years to them honestly doesn't change much, I still play a lot of video games with high school characters even though I'd never be attracted to a real life high schooler at my age. However, loli is just a whole new can of worms. Like, in anime, they're physically and mentally undeveloped. They're usually pure, naive, clearly shown to be like 4 feet tall, and so on. So if you look at that and think "Aw yeah that's sexy," or, "She's literally half the age of when she'll begin thinking about sex but I think she's hot already," You're pretty nasty. Even if some people who are into loli's aren't real life pedophiles, they are attracted to traits like childishness, naivete, innocence, and so on which is icky. So seeing a big artist like Sakimichan just... encouraging people to get their rocks off to child characters except they've been given big breasts and hips is... pretty unsettling. I don't feel like this is a thing that needs to be encouraged anymore in the anime community. Can we just let anime children be children for like 5 minutes? Can 1 single female character in anime not be turned into masturbation fodder?
It's one thing to do this to siblings, I think we all sass our siblings once in a while. But Kenna doesn't do this to just her sister, she does it to EVERYONE who comments, even fans who leave kind messages or reasonable questions. I think that's why we perceive her as so harsh😭
Can we uhhh Not sexualize literal children who are already being sexualized enough by fanboys for no reason at all Please and thank you 🙏🙏🙏 (Seriously though. There's like a million and one high school aged and up characters but everyone HAS to lewd the LOLIS. If you see a child character and think how sexy they'd be as an adult you're creepy.)
