I understand what everyone was saying about Skillshare not being a Japanese company meaning they might not be able to sponsor a visa for Japan. I would just like to bring up the fact that Mikan has been posting a Skillshare link in her insta story every day for the past few days. Sure she could just be doing it as part of a money sponsorship situation, but it’s still interesting to note
I agree that it’s not weird to want to weigh in about issues in the US when you’re not from there, but I do think it’s kind of weird and performative to bring up what’s going on in the states right now but not post any of the links to donate or anything. She has no problem dropping her PayPal in every video description...
I feel like no matter what is being said here, Mikan won’t return to PULL to clear anything up. The only time I think she might return is when her and Yasu don’t work out, and she comes here to say how she didn’t know about this and that she’s a victim. If she doesn’t make a comment, then she can deny knowing the truth about Yasu. We know she lurks here, but without evidence ((like a comment or recent login date)), she can just deny it. She’ll come here to save face and say she fell for his lies. And if everything does somehow workout with him, she won’t need to. Either way works for her
I know I mentioned this a while ago, but I feel the need to bring it up again. Mikan had the one meeting with CdawgVA in like January, and she probably already felt like she wanted to quit Bunka at that point. I wouldn’t be surprised if he shared more information about how he got his entertainment visa from Bookwalker, which he mentioned in a video. He was constantly having them sponsor him and then he moved to Japan with a visa sponsorship from them. Mikan has been getting sponsored by Skillshare a lot lately. I have a feeling she may have taken this route to get a visa sponsor. She mentioned also that part of the office room was going to be dedicated to sewing. She will probably make instructive videos about sewing techniques ((or something along those lines)) as well as videos where she follows lessons on Skillshare. Just a thought I had
She did meet up with CdawgVA in January. I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe they signed with the same company and that’s how they met? I mean, aside from both being weebs in Japan, their content isn’t similar at all and I kinda doubt they knew of each other beforehand. It’s possible they did, but it was interesting that they met up kind of randomly without having interacted much before? I only noticed them liking each other’s pics and following each other right around the time they met up.
I’m not sure how it works in Japan, but in the US, you need to have a LOT of evidence of being a real, loving couple in order to get a marriage visa out of it. My friend and I have talked about just getting married so she can have the visa. She’s done a lot of research on it and said that we would need pictures, to move in together, and to be able to talk about intimate details in the interview process and be on the same page about it. She said people who make this arrangement usually trade something for the visa. If Japan is like the US in this regard (which I don’t know honestly), it’s possible that she’s oversharing to get that marriage visa asap and giving Yasu clout in exchange. Again, I’m not sure if you have to prove the relationship in Japan, but if so, marriage visa seems like her choice and would explain the rapid pace of the relationship and the constant oversharing.
Anyways, just a thought I had.
edit; Or Mikan’s just doing it cause she’s annoying anyways
I’m wondering what kind of excuse she’ll come up with if/when this whole thing crashes and burns. Probably something about Yasu manipulating her. She’ll use the stuff about him on here as fallback if something happens between them
I see a lot of people saying she is not over Hirokazu, but I haven’t really seen any evidence of that myself. Can anyone tell me why this is such a popular opinion? Even with her sharing a lot of things from or about Yasu or mentioning Hirokazu or his family, I think it’s got nothing to do with not being over him and wanting to make him jealous and more to do with the fact that they are still friends/on good terms and she’s very happy with Yasu (right now at least. Who knows how it will turn out if he’s as bad as he looks here). He (Hiro) was an important person to her once so it makes sense for him to still hold a special place for her. Idk that’s just my experience in being friends with my exes at least
If she’s been friends with Yasu for a couple of years, does that mean she was friends with him when he was dating the girl before you then?
You said that he left his girlfriend before you in a similar way to how he left you, and since he’s been friends with Aislinn/ekuboikko for a couple years and is referred to as his bff, it leads me to believe that she may have known about the gf before you as well as you. It’s normal for someone to talk about their relationship to their bff after all.
I wondered about her and whether you met her or talked to her, especially since she’s met and hung out with Mikan now. You said before that Yasu’s friends don’t last many years, but she has been his friend for a couple years. It just makes me really curious about her.
Also, chances are that he was telling her things about you during the relationship. Whether they were true or false things about you is another story, but this could explain why she so easily blocked you and believed whatever things he may have said about you. Either way, I’m sorry that you had to go through that kind of relationship and that it turned out this way.
