The thing to remember here is that she is in Japan. American things are imported and much more expensive than domestic things. If she really is broke, why am I not seeing 1000 yen station bin clothes or discount uniqlo everything. I've been broke here too sso I know how it is. We all know she can fit in Japanese sizes so she doesn't really have an excuse. I'm not buying her bullshit as long as she keeps partying and buying import shit the way she does. Nobody's forcing her to live in an apartment on her own. She could easily move to a share house, since that would definitely be cheaper than what she's currently paying for that place.
Agreed. You either get channels like hers that say Japan is a magical place where nothing ever goes wrong or channels like Ryan Boundless which make Japan out to be hell on Earth. I don't think it's fair to pick out just Rachel and Jun for this, because I think this is something that tends to plague the immigrant community in general, and especially jvloggers. Nuance, please!
Sometimes tv programs pay to have foreifn extras...or just ask for them. She probably knows someone who works for NHK or something who was asking around for extras. A lot of us living here for a long time have been extras in something or did some sort of modeling gig. It's pretty common. I suspect that's the case with her, especially since she had no lines.
It hadn't happened for so long because it's an extremely rare event here. Japanese culture tends to frown upon doing anything to call attention to oneself, so catcalling that happens here is typically conducted by non-japanese. Instead, you get nanpa, which isn't nearly as aggressive as catcalling and tends to involve a lot more consent and less entitlement. Basically, guys hang out around a station on the weekend approach any girl they think Is cute, asking if she wants to get coffee...which involves going out at night on a weekend, something Kenna is unfamiliar with. Catcalling is gross though even when it happens to problematic people. My condolences, Kenna.
I never saw the original but damn...it just keeps going and getting cringier. I have no talent in art whatsoever but even I can see the proportions are off and her work is sloppy. Plus, you can really tell she's forcing her voice to sound uwu kawaii
I don't think so. I'm not going to watch this video because I do want to give him views, but basically every video I've seen has him asking leading questions to produce the answers he wants and it seems very clear that he just happened to talk to assholes. Japanese people don't typically share their real opinions with strangers, so by knowing that alone you can tell that the people he talks to are not typical Japanese people. Actually, Japanese people are somewhat distrustful of strangers approaching them in the street because it's so uncommon. Only salespeople or people trying to get something out of you usually do that.
Bri: Japanese men are appropriating my culture instead of respecting it!!!! Also Bri: I'm judging the shit out of you because you are not confirming to my culture's gender norms. Also also Bri: I'm gender fluid.
