    Is she trying to go for a Larme-kei look?
    Larme magazine is holding a SNS competition for new models right now. Is she trying to jump on that style trend to enter the competition?...

    To clarify: Salon Nalu just opened a new nail art service at their store which is why Mikan and so many other influencers are suddenly getting their nails done there. (Rinrindoll, who is also a Nalu regular, was advertising her nails by Nalu on social media recently as well.)
    All of these influencers are being sponsored/paid to get their nails done at Nalu to advertise their new salon addition. None of them are just going there to get their nails done just cause they are bored.
    The shop staff talked about the new nail art addition in her "vlog". They also said in 2-ish months they are adding eyelash extensions to their salon as well, so expect Mikan and everyone else to get eyelash extensions aound September-october ūü§∑‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ

    She was recently in a big scandal, but there is that Korean beauty youtuber Haneul who has her own lingere/pajama company (I think she has 2 of them now?)
    Are they trying to copy her with selling pajamas?...

    According to Rune's shopping service account, her commission prices range from 15-20% + transportation fee's if she has to go in person.
    So lets say you want a special item and she has to go in person, you would be paying 20% commission + extra for travel and other expenses. Just estimating (because she doesn't live in tokyo and I'm assuming travel can be expensive?) You could be paying 25+% commission on an item?
    Isn't this pretty expensive?! I looked up that tenshi service someone else mentioned and this is Tenshi's special in-person item pricing:

    So as an estimate you would be paying about 9% commission for tenshi?
    This is also about the same commission price Tenshi charges for internet shopping as well (5% + an extra 2.9-4.4% based on your country)
    ... Which means compared to other "expensive" shopping services Rune's prices are 10-20% more expensive...

    She lives in NY and there are lots of fashion schools/programs in NY. If she's unhappy with her film degree and wants to start a brand she can get into some type of fashion masters program in NY. (It doesn't have to be fashion design either, it can be fashion buisness, fashion marketing, being a stylist, etc.)
    Heck, if she's desperate she can even get a second bachelors degree in something related to fashion, since she has a degree already some classes might transfer over and it wouldn't take as long?
    NY colleges aren't cheap, but she seems to have the money to afford going to one of them.

    Slight off topic:
    I don't know if this was ever mentioned here? But it seems Mikan is listed as a talent under that Breaker Japan company that some other foreign youtubers in Japan work through. (Simon and Martina, Rinrindoll, etc)
    Could she get an entertainment Visa through them?...

    No, this was long after she got married. She was saying all of this stuff less than 6 months ago...

    Something I just realized about Rune that doesn't add up:
    So it's been speculated here that she lives on a military base, right? So does that mean all of her (appartment?) neighbors are other foreigners living in Japan?
    She use to talk about how close she was with her Japanese neighbors all the time in her stories (swapping recipies, talking to them in Japanese, how close friends they are, etc). She also in her stories would make memes about how she was her town's only foreigner and was famous in her town for being the foreigner?
    Unless she is talking about townspeople, I'm guessing none of these "Japanese neighbors" she talked about are real? And if there are other military people around she wouldn't be the only foreigner living in her town either?

    This whole situation makes me worry a lot for Choa and that other girl who left AOA. Were they getting bullied too? What else are they hiding?
    I also don't think I can ever look at the other members of AOA the same ever again. If any of them were to say "We were bullied too!" Or "We tried to stop it!" I honestly wouldn't believe them one bit.
    Take Chanmi for example. She seems obviously close to Jimin and features her on her YouTube channel a lot. (Now that I think about it, I think Mina was the only member, other than Choa who already left the group, to never really be featured on her channel?)
    If Chanmi was really against what Jimin was doing, or scared of her, would she really always be so buddy-buddy and filming with her on her personal YouTube channel?
    I'm unsubscribing from her immediately...

    Eric doesn't want to be on camera so I don't see the harm in her not saying his name often in her videos. He may just not want his name publicly out there all the time (especially if he is not an influencer and has his own private job/life?)
    I also know when her and Sunny had their falling out she shaded her on always showing off her BF chris. Maybe she tries not to say his name to not be like Sunny and talk about him all the time?
    Same with her assistant, (Does she even still have one since she is no longer traveling/going to events/leaving her house?) She doesn't seem to want to be on camera either and might not say her name often due to privacy.
    I feel like Kim's channels have gone down hill a lot ever since quarantine happened. (I also feel like her attempt at being one of those chill/ASMR youtubers was a hot mess.)
    Her channels are 99% based on going to Japan/Korea, showing off stuff from those countries, and going to events. Without being able to travel she doesn't have any  content to make.

    Isn't it awkward going to see your friend for the first time in months and bringing your boyfriend, a person they have never met before, along?!
    Unless she(/they) showed up unannounced since that Noe girl (Mikan's "friend" who doesn't seem to like her that much) was there not expecting to see mikan, I'd be pretty pissed if I went to catch up with a friend and they brought their new BF along...

    My question is:
    - Does Rune seriously not know wtf that brianna girl posts and/or not give a damn
    - Does she secretly agree with everything that brianna girl is posting and those are her true thoughts on her husband?...

    Doesn't she plan on staying in Japan for awhile? I could have sworn at one point she said in her stories that she fully plans on raising her future children in Japan.
    If she only has 2-4 years in Japan and they have already been married for over a year, unless she is already trying for a kid she most likely won't have time to raise them there? Unless she has alternative plans to stay in Japan with her husband?
