Lyz is an English teacher based in Japan and has lived in Japan since 2014.

 

VIDEOS

 

Lyz started out making typical videos about Japan; Lucky Bags, popular shows, exploring different cities, and food.

She later started a series called Girl Abroad where she “does not sugar coat and shows her raw self.” She seems very lonely in these vlogs, and there is often complaining of some sort.

Lyz also has a passion for music and is a singer/songwriter at LnA Records. Her newest song is in Japanese.

RELATIONSHIPS

 

She is often complaining about relationships. I haven’t seen all of her videos, but it seems like she has dealt with some unfortunate relationships in the past. Because of this, she always carries this negative energy surrounding relationships and claims these relationships contribute to her anxiety and depression. I read/heard her say somewhere (and will try to find later) that she stated she 'doesn't like dating men in Japan because of their mindsets' or something. Therefore, all of her recent relationships have been long distance.

Back in December 2018, she posted a video titled “I'm in a Long Distance Relationship...AGAIN! // Here's How we Make it Work.” where she talks about a past relationship, red flags for long distance, etc. and talks about a new relationship.

In April 2019, she posted her first video of two during her time in LA visiting her boyfriend for the first time, where she stayed for two weeks. At the end of that two weeks, they were engaged. Despite the quickness, Lyz and her fiance, Ryuji, continue to recieve a high volume of supportive comments. Lyz has already changed her blog URL to "www.lyzmorita.com", taking Ryuji's last name and matching his photography website, "www.ryujimorita.com". Ryuji was born in Japan and later moved to the US. He has a business degree in Japan and a music producing degree in America. He runs a photography business.

MENTAL HEALTH AND ILLNESS

 

Lyz comments upon her anxiety and depression in many videos. Tbh I'm too lazy to find some but in nearly every video I have linked so far she mentions one and/or the other. She is also allergic to peanuts.

Recently, she started experiencing different health issues. She talks in her videos about feeling really sick, seeing lots of doctors, having to go to urgant care in the US, etc. She also mentions doctors not understanding whats wrong, having to take lots of test, blahblah. In her most recent video, she states that she has slipped into a very deep depression due to being sick and is struggling a lot. She is now allergic to soy and eggs, too. The doctor found that she has a hernia in her stomach that is not too serious and does not require surgery. She also has IBS and intense allergy reactions. She has mild depression and a lot of anxiety. She continues that she knows people who have had lots of allergies but, thanks to meditation and herbal medicines and special diets, have cured their allergies. She will be doing immunotherapy and seeing a holistic specialist.

 

PERSONALITY

 

Sunflowerghost, who helped start this thread, mentioned "Always playing the role of the victim. A true manipulator by definition.". Not gonna lie- I'm a fan of Lyz, but I do see that she is 100% problematic. However, until Sunflowerghost mentioned this, I didn't notice it. Rewatching her videos now, it's very apperent that she is totally playing the victim card in every single experience that doesn't go her way. Issues in Japan, relationships, problems with her health, the list goes on. While playing the victim card, she does seem very manipulative to get her viewers on her side. This is very apperent in her "I'm in a long distance relationship again" video. She is also very deflective. She states in most videos that she is raw and wants to share her honest life, but is very quick to say "this is MY life, I dont care what YOU think". I understand it may be annoying, but she doesn't allow her viewers to voice their opinions. I mentioned before that a majority of her videos are full of support, this makes me wonder if she combs through the comments. (this is just speculation, tho)

To be honest, when I saw her recommended in the Jvloggers thread I was excited for something new.  It’s weird though just how emotionally draining I find her content.  She’s like the character from What We Do In The Shadows (tv) .... Simon Robinson? I forget the name lol.

Hopefully her impending nuptials maybe help her shift her focus on being the centre of the world.

I like her but she takes offense super easily to criticism and constantly looks for validation online whenever she comes across someone saying something bad about her.

Like girl, be the adult in the situation and talk it out privately and not on social media. 

I liked a lot of her past content but I'm struggling to get through the newer stuff as it's kind of melancholy?

I mean I watch Simon and Martina and they have their bad days as well but they always try and put some humor into their videos.

I agree. I'm not a fan of her newest Japanese song because I believe that its pretty auto tuned, but her covers on instagram are real good (it wouldn't let me link embed one tho sadly)

She is SUPER exhausting. Like, the way she complains? and discusses things? just brings you down

also agree. I touched upon this on the front page submission. she really can't keep things to herself and accept any sort of constructive criticism  she decided to put her WHOLE life online. literally. from illness to insanely quick engagement. people are gonna have something to say.

When I first got into her she was making typical Japanese videos that came across as different from other YouTubers at the time. I thought she was a breath of fresh air in Japanese vlogger community and binged watched her. However, over the past year, I've gone off her quite a bit as she just seems to negative about stuff. I get that people have down days but a lot of her recent uploads seem to focus on the negative rather than the positive.

Doesn’t her name: lovelyzkelly look like bad 90s username? Wasn’t that her “rebranding”?

100% AGREED.  Martina is someone who is struggling  with a serious disease. She struggles with it yet you can feel her sincerity and  you can feel her trying to be positive and uplifting. 
 
Kelly is like 😭😭😭😭😭 love me.
I have nut allergies.  I have a weak immune system. I work with kids and they make me sick all the time. 
 
sorry just   my opinion. 
 
Also, this is purely speculation... but who else thinks :Dragonrider is Kelly? I mean she comes off hyper defensive and ALL her previous post have related  to lovelyzkelly in some way .

Dragonrider requested to be banned, and by request I'm being nice. I told them they were welcome to defend Lyz. All sides are welcome. They just needed to follow PULL rules on not attacking and insulting other members. That's all. In response I got a hysterical pm rant from Dragonrider that I won't repeat. It could be summed up as, "Lyz is an angel and you people are awful not to see it." 

Well okay, if you say so. At this point I wonder if Dragonrider doesn't have a little altar built for Lyz.  :alpacaworry:

I honestly can't stand her constant complaining and always making herself out as the victim. She complains a lot about Japan but won't go back to America. Probably because she'll be even less relevant there. I've met her a few times out with mutual friends and she's the same good news bear in person. 

I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents.

I found it so weird how she vlogged a date with a guy and then talked in detail about how it went to thousands of viewers. (This was before her fiancé obviously) Like if I was the guy who went on the date with her and then saw what she put online I would be kind of insulted and creeped out. Why not just say “I’ve been going on dates lately!” Instead of going into so much detail and vlogging the whole day?? 

She also has made a video in explicit detail about her abusive relationship (while crying profusely) I felt pretty bad for her watching it, but I sort of think these super vulnerable and emotional things should stay mostly private?? That’s what close friends and family are for, not strangers on the internet.
