Conan is currently a freshman at UCLA and he makes youtube videos that mostly consist of vlogs, favorites, Q+A's, a few self-written/composed songs, and general chatting videos. He's from Austin, Texas and is half-Japanese on his mom's side (I believe) and half-white. He's appeared in one of Annabelle/CatCreature's vlogs before and she's in one of his.

I think he's a nice kid and I like the general vibe and editing of all of his videos. His video editing does seem similar to the "soft aesthetic bubbly letter" kind of editing that a lot of youtubers do these days, but in my opinion, if you watch many of his videos enough, it still feels distinct to his personality. I've never heard anything bad about him, so I was just wondering what your opinions were.

i love conan! he seems like such a hard worker and like someone you could easily get along with. i think his relatability is going to be what makes him huge. even though his “aesthetic” seems to be kind of overdone, he’s really such a breath of fresh air on youtube. he really deserves all the success that comes his way.

He's a peach. I think he's really sweet and he's a very talented artist who seems to have a great heart.

agreed with everything said above. from watching his vlogs after going to college, it looks like he’s struggling with the workload and he said he might reconsider college if he still doesn’t enjoy it after a semester i think. hopefully, college gets better for him as i don’t want to see him dropping it or anything.

I thought he already had a thread... but I really like his videos :alpacalove:

The only drama I've seen is I think it was a vlog where he and his friends were shopping and he (or one of his friends) dropped something on the floor and they laughed it off or something. Someone made a big deal about it in the comment section and I think they were just overreacting O.o

what i meant was that a lot has happened for him since 2017, he released a whole album which is pretty big i guess.

as soon as i saw a thread for conan pop up, my heart stopped because tbh, i can't imagine him doing anything bad enough to be dragged to hell and back on PULL. but i'm glad that i came here only to see positive things. i'm a big conan fan and i loved his new album.

the change between aesthetics was strangely drastic for me, as someone who's been a fan since late 2017. but it really suits him and i think he's super cute and yea- big fan of his.

I remember his sunny boy aesthetic back then, I couldn't even recognize him now. He has some of the cringest songs I've heard but I guess that's where he's going, your male version of Billie Elish. To each their own.

oh true. sometimes, his demeanor is (well, was) very annoying. i did use to love his videos though.

i feel like he's far more genuine now though? he seems true to himself, and his writing has switched from "aesthetic uwu" to just a lot of feely stuff.

also i'm kind of glad he dropped the "i'm 19 and i still haven't had my first kiss yet" act. (idk perhaps he just had his first kiss by now).

I've followed Conan for a long time and while I agree that his uwu ~soft~ personality seemed a bit contrived, I still... miss it? Not as into his current style/hair etc from an aesthetic standpoint. 

What does bother me is the comments he's made on his fame. The comments about "no longer being anonymous in public" and getting stopped all the time and the name-dropping he does gets on my nerves. I don't want him to lose that down-to-earth sort of vibe. I'll always have a bit of a soft spot for him either way.

also, anyone know what happened to all his old friends from his vlogs? ellie, summer, gus, etc. iirc he doesn't mention them/follow them on ig anymore - the only friend he mentions is ashley. wonder if something happened.
