Omg yes! Screw BuzzFeed. I used to like some of their YouTube skits, but they've become so race and feminist driven they come off as condescending. Their articles are trash not to mention how they pressure their writers in quantity over quality. I can't tell if they're better or worse than MTV news at this point.
I checked out the account and it's only following 5 people. Two hers, becoming Japanese, and two random guys. Granted two of the accounts this person follows are semi dead, but every single tweet is at miranda. It still shows that she can't handle competition because none of them are women and the other account is that tykosam guy. I think the thing that throws me is it used to type in Norwegian and now it's all English. It doesn't have the spelling errors, but it does have that same choppy style. I'm not 100% convinced it's Miranda, but there's just too much off about it.
i agree. We've already confirmed the account was inactive until just recently, it just adds on to the already suspicious timing of everything. If there's any other type of interaction on the account it'll just be business as usual. i don't know how she functions. She's so obsessed with race and haters that everything comes off as an attack. Backstabbing, scamming, and a compulsive liar that cant keep any stories straight. I can't even begin to imagine having any type of one on one conversation with her, let alone getting social media involved... She seriously needs a psych eval.
The whole thing is sketchy as hell no matter how you look at it. There's quite a bit of evidence that possibly points to an actual person, creepy, but a real person. But the profile still reeks of miranda. I highly doubt this person would solely focus on any channels pertaining to oddly specific enough Miranda, her timing to events and certain people is waaaay too convenient, and a recent poster said some of it seems to translate to a mix of swedish; who do we know that's been to Sweden and has talked about it before? MIRANDA. I know I feel like I'm getting a little tin foil happy, but it does seem plausible since she's the only one (that I know of anyway) that remotely has any type of connection to Norway/Sweden region out of the main jvlogging clique.
EDIT: she's also talked about stalkers before, including up till the point where she lost her job, yet THIS account (if it's real of course) isn't an issue??? I'm not fucking buying it.
On my phone, but couldn't someone reverse image search that potentially creepy account? It would be one thing if the picture was an anime character or something, but no that's someone's actual photo. She could be starting to take up catfishing on her fake accounts to make them seem *somewhat* like a real person. Speaking of fake people, we haven't heard from Lola or Lane in a while. I admit I did feel kinda bad at the time of her episode, but still had some underlying skepticism but I decided to try and put empathy first. After seeing her little stunt and immediately turn around and buy that godawful tacky LV crap she's obviously not hurting. But fans don't call her out on it nor even care. Personally if one of my favorite YouTubers pulled that I would lose all respect, unsubscribe, and report them for scamming. Yeah Mira, YOU JAPANESE really do this and think your behavior is A-OK. I tried to defend her when we're being way too harsh or give her credit when she has good points, but again and again she bites everyone and anyone spits in your face and laughs. I hope her useless hick ass gets deported. 2ch I'm looking the other way now.
In her "scary mountain" video i don't get why she felt compelled to wear those way too long 80s anime eyelashes. In the city yeah sure I guess, but it just seems so extra going to a place up in the country. Back to the video now, I will ALWAYS give Miranda credit for trying to show more places than other jvloggers; she does find some neat spots that I would've never known about. But @finch sums up much better than I ever could. It's not a bad video per session, just very disorganized. The jumping to food really messed up the flow and mentioned it at two different points which was unnecessary and could've been wrapped up easier at the end. But I think the biggest thing for me was the camera. I can't stand camera shakiness in general, but she moved through some of these shots so fast it also messed up the flow. She really needs to invest in a damn tripod.
considering how certain YouTubers have lost sponsorships just for stating an opinion on a controversial topic, I don't see how any sponsor would take her after being vile on every platform and blatantly giving out wrong information. Her saying "I don't need sponsors, I do just fine on my channel on my own" sounds more like "nobody will sponsor me, well I don't need them anyway!".
I haven't watched very much Japanese TV shows much outside of takeshi's Castle (I think is Japanese anyway?) And gaki no tsukai which I think is really funny, outside of that I kinda have to rely on snippets of stuff on YouTube that isn't anime related. And it's just a topic that I've noticed that almost nobody ever talks about in jvlogging. But string back to Miranda, the age joke is lame, but it does make sense. I was just curious if she was trying to mimic the same humor style and if that's why some of her tweets were so bizarre.
A little bit off topic sorry, but what IS considered a Japanese sense of humor?? Because I wonder in some of her attempts at being funny is her trying to mimic what people find humorous in Japan, but can't execute it right? Maybe it would explain some of her off the wall tweets?
oh no it doesn't at all, I'm not arguing that in the slightest. But I think it's possible to mean the industry's beauty standard of being small, she just once again can't word it correctly. It still doesn't mean that she can generalize implying that everyone in Japan likes the same thing in terms of attraction.
Kind of annoying to dig up old topics like the swimsuit, god are WE turning into Miranda??? BUT there is such a thing as beauty standards in each country. In the US right now it's about thick thighs, big lips, big booty, and contouring. Does that mean everyone likes it? NO. The same applies to Japan or anywhere else for that matter. Of course she generalizes everything and ignores facts or other factors, this isn't that surprising.
I don't know the extent of the citizenship test, but I know in the US you have to understand the Constitution, branches of government, pledge, proof of legal work and income. Even then there's people who've been waiting YEARS to get approved. So the fact that it only took her application a year is lucky. Just getting my paperwork to the Japanese justice department was a pain in the ass, the way she presents becoming a citizen to others really annoys me. Gaining citizenship isn't easy ANYWHERE Miranda! Stop giving weebs a false sense of hope!
Oh lookie there, and perfect spelling too! The grammar is still atrocious, but still. I mean yeah getting denied something sucks, but depending on the official details on why it was rejected it wasn't really a surprise. Maybe this'll teach her not to stick her foot in her mouth. "Oh if people would just apply they'd be approved" , "anyone can apply and get accepted", "I'll officially become JAPANESE". Becoming a citizen in ANY country is a daunting task and she acts like it's soo easy. Is it really any wonder why her arrogant naive ass got rejected?
I don't think doing a video on pop culture/anime would necessarily be a bad thing on a jvloggers' channel, Japan holds special exclusive events for some titles and can give a more native insight as to why they're popular (your name for example), or snag interviews with Japanese creators; and already they would have the advantage over some anime vloggers. The problem is a lot of jvloggers treat anime as a disease to their channels or they're too good to talk about it. Like "I came to Japan because of the culture, I have no interest in anime at all" superiority type attitude.
