    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

Haircut aside it's so nice hearing her natural voice. A translator presenter role seems like it could be a good fit so hey more power to her.

I agree with you about the haircut, it doesn't suit her at all, but these kind of videos show how it's unnecessary for her to edit her face since she actually looks very pretty, too bad she's mostly into giving a false image of herself also I think that despite needing a more practice she did a nice job as a correspondent.

Video of her with her new haircut. Ehhh I don’t think it looks good... but anyway, she spoke English in this interview.

 

 

soooo is she finally done with modeling? (and her "alien adult-baby face" phase? idk what to call it lol)

tbh i think it's a smart move if she moves on to an actual mature look like she has here and focuses on translator/presenter jobs. Modeling is not something anyone can do for the rest of their lives anyway, especially for Dakota whose niche was kawaii/teen fashion.

Watching some of her other videos of her asking questions on the Rizin FB page, she could definitely use some more practice. It’s awkward to watch her asking questions to actual fighters. Her nervous giggling, smiling and scrunching her nose when the fighter is simply responding to her question is really awkward. She could get away with the “cutesy” and nervous giggling if it were an interview with Popteen or some other kawaii modeling thing she is so used to. But here it just seemed off.

It seems so. I always wondered when she would realise that she cannot go as human barbie/alien adult-baby face forever. I'm curious what work she will do in the future and if she will be able to stay in japan.

She is such a pretty girl in some videos Ive seen of her in BTS of commercials and fashion shows she has been on. At this point she knows that everyone knows she edits herself too much and it looks poor on her so I don't understand why she does it apart from being so insecure. But she is so pretty without all of the editing and it is sad to see.

Honestly, I kinda hope Dakota does more like, being a translator type of work if she does want to stay in Japan, since that is VERY sought after since a lot of Japan doesn't speak english. It would definitely help her make money and let her stay in Japan, since it really doesn't seem like she's doing any sort of modelling anymore :alpacawink:

Does she have a bachelor's degree in anything? If she doesn't she won't be able to get a Humanities visa until she gets a degree, regardless of how many companies want her or how qualified she is. I went through that first hand. As for staying in Japan, she doesn't have permanent residence and if she's no longer modeling she can't be here on an entertainer's visa anymore so it depends if she's able to merge into a full time TV gig or not. If not, then it's marriage or back to Florida I would think.
