i kinda liked her but these screenshots are quickly changing my mind... she's trying way to hard to cater to her fanbase - either that or she's just nasty. (which i mean if she wants to be good for her but i'm not a fan lol)

Off-Topic: I don't know why but I always get an arrogant vibe from Joey whenever he complains about being famous. It seems more pretentious rather than genuine. He often behaves condescendingly towards his fans as well. Of course I agree that his fans are mostly cringeworthy weebs, but they're only kids and we all do stupid and embarrassing things when we were kids/teenagers, so Joey (and Shine. That lil brat.) shouldn't act like he's above them. Plus, his fans are the ones who make it possible for him to have YouTube as his career, so he should at least be grateful and not try picking his fans apart every chance he gets. Making fun of weebs all the time — when he knows that the majority of his fans are weebs  is not edgy and satire; it's just rude and stupid.

 

OT as well: Yea I never really managed to decide if Joey was genuine or just trying too hard to be "genuine" and ultimately appearing (or showing himself to be) pretentious. His "satire" rubbed me the wrong way, I feel like what he does is more parody, but then again maybe I just have different standards (I hold The Thick of It as the pinnacle of satire lol). Back in the days when he was clean shaven and didn't have hair that looks that it's been dipped in sewage, he was more watchable. I feel like his appearance mirrors his behaviour.

Joey probably needs his own thread like Shine tbh.

Back on topic, I unsubbed from Joey (lol still slightly OT) because of the type of interaction he has with Aki. It's just gross to me. It's not even one off, it's consistent and getting worse imo. Well, Aki has always had this kind of "appeal", so it's nothing really that different.

Reuploaded my previous caps (didn't know they would break if I deleted them from My Attachments, but they kept randomly adding to the princessmei thread :beardo:)

OT: though I'm sorry to lead the conversation off topic and towards Joey, I completely agree. Most Internet celebs who complain about being famous come off as disingenuous unless they actually do something about it (like Kevjumba who quit Youtube to become a monk or something.) Not Joey, who keeps doling out the same shit after complaining and again doing attention-fishing stuff like his Aki interactions. 

That's the one thing I'll credit Aki for--she's not as condescending towards her fans as Shine or Joey, but maybe that's just because she's hentai trash and can't use the "I'm Japanese so I'm not a weeb" defense so it's impossible to be. And she's still extra trash for using fanart for her thumbnails without crediting the source (and editing it), and defending herself for that when being called out.

Found her posts on myanimelist in a board titled "Did you go through a weeaboo phase?"

"when you've already developed a sense of balance between your love of anime and japanese culture with other things that are in your life"

What are the other things in your life besides anime, Aki? :alpacabored:

I personally like Aki, I think she is quite smart in how she markets herself (perverted, dorky, quirky, flirty yet informative enough) and the click bait/objectification of herself is working wonders for her the growth of her channel, I commend her for it. Power of a woman.

 

yeah, I think like that too! But idk, it's getting kinda off limits now (I mean, look at that keyhole sweater pic, it's just uncomfortable)

I mean it's one thing to be confident about your body but another to just I don't know grab your boobs and give a crazed look at a camera. In the last Q & A video I watched I know her fans would ask her about her breast size a lot and she kinda just toys with it :Alpacaconfused: I guess she's using it to her advantage but doesn't she ever get sick of some neckbeards constantly asking for size like a bunch of weeb perverts???

I used to really like her, but recently seeing her in my subscription feed makes me cringe. She acts so weird and the faces she pulls are nasty. I'd rather watch Einshine than her, and that's saying a lot. :alpacafedup:
