Jake called him out because trevor didn't give the same answer twice. If Trevor really had a mental disorder he would have given the same answer as to why he wasn't getting a job. If he said he would become more depressed working then that should be a consistent attitude. In his response to Jake he came up with some thing entirely different by saying he wants to be a stay at home husband and doesn't know enough Japanese . A far cry from "wanting to kill myself."
note that I haven't seen his videos before, but what you are descescribing sounds like kansai pronunciaton of those words. When I went to osaka I noticed a lot of things are pronounced entirely differently including kakikouri. They acually say it like that with a g instead. It might be interesting to research where he has mostly lived and studied.
I actually got annoyed a little bit with Christine appearing in Ben's video acting like she had no idea what was going on, when it was clearly planned. And her asking why Mario was jumping and why turtles were enemies also pissed me off. It's a game! It doesn't need to make sense. Ben's banter made me laugh tho. He is actually an unintentionally funny guy. I wish he would make more videos. I would watch them.
Ok, so since it's quieted down some, I think I can share what little I learned while attending the youtube hanami this year.
I saw Kat from katlovesosaka. I thought she had left Japan, but apparently she just deleted her channel. She has a new one called Kat in Japan or something like that. She said she wasn't going to make anymore videos, yet this channel exists and seems like she makes vids . Idk. Also, I learned that Erica (panda goes to Tokyo) and her boyfriend broke up, but she pretends like they haven't. She will say she does things with her boyfriend but there are no pictures of them together, and other people have confirmed that he has not been with her for a while. All so very strange.
Also, I talked with Victor and he doesn't get why people leave the community to make their own community and it seemed like he was hinting at TC and those who joined them. Like, a couple TC people showed up to make an appearance, (probably to do a colab) and left. They barely stuck around.
All in all, the hanami was very fun! It was sponsored by goose island beer. Phoenix kept pushing it whenever he was on camera and told everyone to #gooseisland on social media, but behind the scenes everyone said it tasted like shit and no one really wanted any. Since Phoenix was bleeding money for the event, I think he took any sponsorship he could get. And despite the crappy beer, it was still really fun and I had a great time. Didn't even realize the time went by.
