My friend and I live fairly close to Akihabara and we mainly go to the arcade and saizeriya to study. It really wears off quickly. Honestly the fact that they've been in Japan for as long as they have been and only hang out in akihabara (electric town on top of that) only solidifies that they are weeaboos. Like there is so much neat stuff they could go see, but they just don't. The stuff they did go see is still anime related, which I understand is the premise of the channels, but you can still show other cool stuff. Joey's always going on and on about how "Japan isn't just all about anime" well put your money where your mouth is you weeb!
Selective outrage. She'll say "it's their country", but for Muslims in specific she wants countries to bend over backwards for them. I'm sorry but that's not how it works nor should it. I really don't understand why her and many other people think Muslims should get a free pass. She's told people before to basically keep Japan Japanese, but then slams Sweden for being racist towards Muslims because a good majority refuse to assimilate? GTFOH. i know there are good Muslim people out there, but this type of entitled attitude that Muslims are untouchable is complete utter BS and it creates a level of tension and dislike that shouldn't have been there in the first place.
These cafes are a very niche market, so if there's people willing to pay I don't really have an issue. Not my scene, but good for them. Her over acting is what puts me off of most of her videos. She goes so extra she actually looks like she's trying to outperform the guys.
I don't mind him having an opinion on not liking an anime, but using the fandom as his only excuse is pretty weak Imo. Sometimes i wonder if he's using it to be lazy. Right now only Noragami would seem to support this theory, but hear me out. While Noragami is a good series, I really haven't heard or seen much of a fandom for it, like anywhere. So instead of him actually sitting down and watching it and creating proper critique of it, he can just blow it off and blame the fandom. I'll have to keep observation in the future to see if it matches up. honestly i don't interact with fandoms at all. But i would be lying if I didn't have that bias as well. The online "communities" of games like overwatch and league of legends were toxic enough to keep me from wanting to play.
just throw a pile of cash in the toilet, you'll get the same effect. https://twitter.com/kanadajin3/status/963670535975653376?s=20 Her post, "famous or not we are all equal". HA! BULL. FUCKING. SHIT. she puts herself, Japanese, and Muslims up on a pedestal, she shits on the west and other foreigners. And no, we are not equal. There are many injustices around the world that are still going on. More virtue signaling garbage! Unless she gets an education first, I don't want her anywhere near teaching academics. There's a right way and a wrong way to do private religious schools. Storytime (sorry this does have a point). I went to a private religious school that did the wrong way. Our science classes were almost non existent, actually most of our classes were non existent, but they made sure you had Bible class! Bullying happened from students and teachers if you were too different or didn't follow things, rich kids got away with murder, all while having the audacity to call themselves Christians. Personally I don't think religious schools should be allowed, but it is technically within rights to have them. The issue is if they're not done right, they can go south really fast. And with her level of extremism it's ai dangerous breeding ground for indoctrination.
I don't think it's fair to judge a series/show based on the fandoms. Yeah when it first comes out the hype goes way overboard, but that's kind of expected. There's several things I watch or play that have a toxic fanbase, but I just enjoy them as is and not interact with the fanbase. Instead of Joey slamming a show and dismissing it because of fandoms/fangirls/fujoshis, he should just make a video addressing these types of toxic fandoms and how it hurts an anime. But he's part of the problem in my eyes.
Admittedly I've only seen a couple of Aki & Joey's videos. The only videos I like of Joey's were the anime cringe poems/pick up lines. And for Aki....eh. honestly none really stuck out for me enough to actually like. She has two modes: over the top annoying or flat blandness tone. Personally over the years it's been games>anime for me but I still love anime movies. I haven't seen any, but have they even covered anime game titles? Granted most are VNs, but still. Considering they never leave Akihabara, there's tons of them and a lot of them don't even make it outside of Japan.
Every now and then if I have nothing better to do, I'll check her YouTube or Facebook for anything new. Nothing. What a drag
Side note, that post I assume miranda wrote, is an idiot. Just going to university does not guarantee you citizenship. You still have to make the effort of graduating and get a stable job for x amount of time in order to gain citizenship. Considering how her videos have been less and less about Japan, and more about her islamaphelia who is she trying to fool with her getting citizenship in Japan? Especially when she expressed that she wanted to work and go to saudi Arabia. It doesn't add up.
Notice how he also says "YouTuber friends" I don't know why, but this just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Basically this tells me he doesn't give a fuck about his friends back in Australia that aren't YouTubers. I'd like to say maybe it was just badly worded, but seeing in the past how he typically collabed and piggybacked off of other YouTubers I doubt it. I don't get why they spend an unholy amount of time in akiba. Yeah yeah anime sure, but electric town is a pretty short main strip with some shops on the back streets, take that out of the equation and it looks like any other part of Tokyo. The flair wore off pretty quickly for me (I still enjoy the arcades and a couple stores but still). They have money coming in but they don't really do much. The fact that they keep hanging around in akiba when they actually HAVE the disposable income to travel to different spots feels like a slap in the face impo. If I had the money like they made each month, I wouldn't even be NEAR Tokyo!
WOW I've been astray for faaaar too long. even in Akihabara I haven't seen one damn JAPANESE person look even remotely like him. If anything he looks like a couple musicians I've seen around Shinjuku but it's still not that often. Is his life THAT boring that you have to make your Japanese half a selling point?? I hate it when people do this. If you're part of a certain ethnicity, cool little factoid, it should never be a focal point. If Mira didn't turn into a batshit Muslim i'd like to see Johnson go up against Mira to see which one is the bigger wapanese.
The photo is nice, but I think since you can't actually see the kid's face then she's not too concerned with cropping it out. And she's not dressed like a frumpy grandma hooray!
I feel like this is being a little nitpicky? Some people (me also) tend to take their showers at night rather than the morning, she might be the same way. However you would still have to brush your hair, teeth, wash your face, and mousturize. Hardly constitutes as 'waking up ready'.
Except when they aren't . Japan's top economist had done a press conference video on why accepting a large amount of refugees would severely damage Japan as a whole based mostly on observation of what's been happening to Sweden. It's a very interesting testimony even if I personally don't agree with a couple points. I'll link it once I find it if anyone is interested. Found it: https://youtu.be/ljPTcUMT4co While I personally don't have issues or care about lush, I often see it as one of those trendy stores much like urban outfitters. The patch feels very bandwagony "look we support this, look at how progressive we are!" When their bottom line is always profit. It's difficult for me to argue if they actually believe this or not, it's just when stores do stuff like this I have a very hard time believing it's just good intentions and nothing else. But it does support how simple minded she is. If the refugees weren't Muslim she wouldn't care or at least not virtue signal as hard.
I'm waiting for that to happen. She always has to put in her two cents wherever she goes. Her latest upload was a few days ago but guess what, it's ANOTHER edited repeat! Must be nice to cut a few clips of your non halal bare head out of a video and call it a day. Much talent. Very work hard.
