  1. She kinda had me feeling a little sorry for her right up until she started covering her mouth when she laughs. Total Japanese mannerism. No American does that. And it just looks really self-conscious and pretentious.
    I mean, this is the kind of thing you expect to see in a 12 year old. Kids that age get really into things and try to copy everything about the stuff they’re interested in. But this “girl” is 22. She’s an adult.
    It wouldn’t surprise me if her crooked teeth were an intentional attempt at “yaeba”.

  2. Hey, is it inner hate day, or what? I didn’t get the memo.
    I can’t say I really keep up with Youtube, to know who’s #1, or whatnot. I would think that if her language skills were good enough, she could do some guest shots as a talento on some of the shows.
    People are interesting.

  3. I’m going to leave it at she is just a little scary. She’s got very pretty eyes from a manga-fan’s perspective, but the teeth.. >.< @Jeff: I'm sorry a mannerism I picked up from looking ridiculous with my mouth wide open while laughing now makes me look pretentious. ... and what's wrong with being self-conscious...

  4. “…she started covering her mouth when she laughs. Total Japanese mannerism. No American does that.”
    @Jeff:
    You’ve never an American cover her smile because she’s self-conscious about her teeth? That’s incredible.
