    Yea it was pretty poor the first year Mimei got one.
    They kept getting them because I guess it's an easy video idea. Buy 1 fukubukuro you're almost guaranteed to dislike, complain about it, post video.

    A Village Vanguard fukubukuro. There was drama one year (2016/7?) because she opened one and criticised it and people were calling her ungrateful or whatever (I remember the items were pretty meh tbh, so her reaction was warranted).
    Then she got another VV fukubukuro the year after that to make a video from it.

    why do they do this to themselves (Duncan also got one).
    It's a rhetorical question I know they do this bc they're lacking video ideas.
    EDIT: I watched it and it's not what I thought it was lol. She used Duncan's as a prop for a joke so they only got 1 (good!)

    That is true, Duncan already didn't like his family and he seemed to have a toxic relationship with them before. I wonder what Dante's stance on all this is since as mentioned it seems it was Duncan who cut contact with his family.
    Also isn't asking for art which to then sell as merch a really weird thought process? Like if I was in a dire situation and needed to be funded for something, I'd just ask for cash rather than making that extra step to create merch from free art that I asked for. Considering how sick Cinnamon was I'd have thought they'd ask for money directly rather than ask for art (or did they do both?).

    Oh wow we found Mimei's magical number. 
    Also I think Mimei & Duncan's relationship just got more sinister... 
    However... I understand some basics of family dynamics where there's 1 golden child, and I don't think it's impossible that Duncan was really tired of being pitted against Dante continually by their mother and cut contact off for that reason.

    Few things I remember about their family:
    Mikhail is the youngest (I got the order wrong!)
    Duncan's dad is no longer in the picture. Why, we don't know.
    Dante and Mikhail are both half (I'm pretty sure about Dante but not 100% about Mikhail), and from growing up in HK I've seen classmates who are Eurasian mix look way more one race than the other. It's most obvious in siblings - their appearance varies a lot (I had a classmate who was English/ Chinese, she looked mixed, her younger sister looked way more European, and her youngest brother looked almost 100% Asian). Duncan looks typical half, Dante more Japanese than English, and Mikhail... idk lol. OT but just look at Joey/ AnimeMan. His features are pretty non-descript and I doubt I'd be able to tell his ethnicity if he didn't explicitly say (not like he doesn't mention he's Japanese every day of his life).
    As for 'the incident', Mimei vague posted on twitter about it back at the time. As far as I know it was some of Duncan's family (members unnamed but theorised to be his brother(s)/ uncle) went to their flat, tried to enter and only Mimei was there. She locked the door and was in panic mode. Details are scarce about the story but that's the gist of it.

    Duncan has his own family issues that have been well documented... so we can immediately exclude them from any discussion of 'list of people they know apart from each other'. Mimei's family are back in NZ so distance is the main issue.
    Many people on this thread have said it before: Mimei seems to have victim complex (Duncan idk? I can't tell that well bc I feel every time something's gone wrong/ they start complaining, it usually starts from Mimei). That's a really draining and annoying trait to any potential friends so I can see why she ended up fading from the other jvloggers even before they left Japan.
    However, from their off handed comments they do mention friends, just not onscreen ones which I feel like are harder from them to keep. Like with Mahoto I think it was inevitable that Duncan and him wouldn't continue collaborating because Duncan's main content source is shittalking the rest of YT Japan. Mahoto is far more mainstream than he is (and even then Mahoto is still probably considered 'alternative' despite having joined UUUM), so that wasn't going to last as an on-screen friendship.

    Holy shit her edited comment... 'I have money guys, I'm sorry I don't clarify every little thing'.
    If she has money then why does she keep saying she's broke? In so many videos she makes off handed comments about money and not having enough, and then she goes and get starbucks on a regular basis, buys 3 BTS tickets, gets a new cat, then fucking begs for Cinnamon's vet bills (events not in order, but you get my point).
    Like I get that you'll hit times where unforeseen circumstances arise but she's a grown adult and you need to have savings for that kind of stuff.
    As much as Duncan has his flaws he doesn't complain about money nearly as much as Mimei does. Like yea he has his comic book hobby (addiction) but he's shown that he's downsized and made changes over the years.
    Then 'I'm human I bleed too'... girl it's like punching yourself and then telling people you've got a bruise, no shit you did it to yourself. Go reevaluate your finances instead of telling the internet how broke you are in an effort to escape reality or gain pity.

    I don'y really doubt Genesis One was being shitty on their end; from what Duncan detailed they seemed fairly unprofessional (bringing your talents to a place and then ditching them because you wanted to have your honeymoon there... you can't make this shit up). As for promises with TC, I wonder what they were promised? There must've been a paper contract so if they didn't get what they signed up for then yea sure they'd quit. Also I think maybe expectations & reality were different, because TC brought together a lot of well known JVloggers so I can see that maybe Mimei & Duncan expected more collaborations or something but it seems TC brings the YTers together on their own channel and there's not a lot of collabs off the TC channel, or not as many as one would expect.
    Also I think I get why I don't like TC now... it's just rather bland? I liked the first few videos bc I like Emma, but soon enough you realise that the TC channel is 80% food/ basic trivia, and it hinges too much on the presenters' personalities/ interactions and lacks actual content. It feels like they're just churning out videos to keep the seat warm instead of putting any thought into the videos they make. Mimei does laid back vlogs so if she was on her own I can see her w/ TC but Duncan definitely not.
    Mimei and Duncan are super awkward with people they don't know well, which translated on to screen in the 2 videos they did with TC.

    Yea... the purple is rather unflattering. Mimei has a talent for picking hair colours that don't actually suit her. The irony of all of her recent style choices is that they only start to look good when the colours have washed out and her hair has had some time to grow from the cut she got, but then she goes and dyes it another eye-watering colour instead of maintaining the nice pastel colour that happened over time.
    Also did anyone notice that they quit Tokyo Creative? Wonder what happened there. Can't say I'm that surprised. Idk why I just... don't like the vibe from Tokyo Creative. I can't put my finger on it.

  11. redbowkiki added a post in a topic Sharla in Japan   

    Honestly... people need to goddamn accept what platonic friendship is between men and women. It's pretty obvious the banter between Chris and Sharla is friendly and seeing much else in their interactions is projecting. They don't flirt with each other, they don't make eyes at each other, they don't have a lot of (or any) skin contact with each other. Chris' interaction with Joey was the same as his interactions with Sharla, jeez. Chris and Sharla have also known each other for a pretty long time? At least I remember Chris saying he watched Sharla's earliest video of her eating some bread/ cake and was like 'hey I could do this'.
    The reason why they don't correct these comments is because there's so many of them and shipping real life people who have significant others is gross and you shouldn't need to sit youtube commenters down and explain why it's gross. Just a waste of time to correct them, really.

    Well... a least in the video Mimei admitted she has lackluster make up skills. I guess it wasn't supposed to be taken seriously as a tutorial of any kind because it was acknowledged as bad makeup even by the video maker. It was just for the viewer's entertainment? Idk.

    I didn't like how she was forced onto the rollercoaster. Idk how much she hates them but I get sick on rollercoasters and I would fight anyone just just to get away from one. What annoyed me was when Chris said 'did you get over your fear' after the rollercoaster (???); it's a fear for a reason, because it's fucking terrifying and unsafe.
    Also Sharla never had a backpack in the whole video, it was only Chris who had the neon orange monster, and I guess after their cycle trip he left his bag with the cameraman. And when they do certain shots they're standing still, so the orange monster is probably on the ground.
    They were also so mismatched lol, Sharla was wearing something fashionable/ casual, while Chris was in shorts & trainers.

  14. redbowkiki added a post in a topic Shane Dawson   

    Idk... I think there's a logic to him making 2 trailers because the trailers are quite different. The first one was just 'I am making this series about Jake Paul' and that was pretty much it. The extended one had more information (like he was speaking to Jake Paul's family as well, it was 8 episodes etc.). I know that for movie trailers there's usually a format where the first one that's just minimum spoilers and the second one actually tells you the story, so if you want minimum spoilers and just some hype, you only watch the first one.
    I think it's ad revenues too, but I feel like the trailers were pretty different in their tone/ content.

    The newest was pretty cute  esp. at the end when Duncan says "lets watch some of Mimei's old videos" lol
    Say what you want about these two, they are a pretty cute couple
