Discuss your (in)famous (ex-)Japan-vloggers here.BEFORE POSTING
: Please keep on topic. Post proof about topics before tinfoiling. Report all Sharla and Chris non-proof posters and move on.
:>Norm removed from Chris Abroad Subreddit>Sharla, Pete, and Chris traveled to UK>Grant's wedding is coming up>Trash Taste also in UK for Comic Con>Sharla bought a house with her friend in Tokyo and are starting a series to update and renovate it>PewDiePie moving to Japan announced>Micaela [Mikaeradesu] is pregnant and is due in August
Na ,Chris was not as popular then(before covid) as he is right now. Big YouTubers, streamers,twitter personalities know him and more now.He used to be more mild and locked to a certain type of people unlike now that is widespread.
One can find people referencing him in random YouTube comments of way different type of videos kek
Do you think they both have the same audience? If you do then you are braindead anon.
TT has an audience that in most cases would not touch a Chris video normally but thanks to the exposure due Chris being close to them they do.The range of type of viewers has increased that's why TT has helped abroadinjapan and at the same time AiJ helped TT.
I'm not saying only due TT abroadinjapan has grown but it was a fair factor.
Im not the fresh fan btw.
uhhhhhhhhhhh pretty sure Chris has been the top jvlogger for past few years lol
The female group fell out of popularity a long time ago. Rachel retired, mikaela is over youtube, taylor went back to hk, mimei has been forgotten, sharla makes mediocre videos and depends on her fanbase now. Mikan does a better job at making videos than sharla now lol. Out of everything Chris puts the most effort into his videos. Most of others barely leave their city. Trash Taste is popular because they have good synergy and a breath of fresh air compared to what's been around for the past decade. I don't think Chris or TT really affected each other's popularity but chris does happen to mesh well with them
Again anon when did I said he wasn't popular on his own? I said he popularity increased a lot due trashtaste.
Popular -→ even way more popular.
Seems like they don't understand how great is that now even the weeb/anime community knows Chris broad/abroadinjapan.
Show me those communities knowing and referencing Chris back in the first journey accros Japan era.
Even in the Vtuber community he's known…
His popularity didn't increase a lot because of TT. Just because the TT subreddit is very active and talks about Chris a lot, does not mean that his popularity IN GENERAL increased because of TT. Like the other anon said, it's because people sat at home and couldn't travel.
I'm pretty sure TT viewers/the anime community knew about Chris well before he first appeared on TT. There's usually a lot of crossover between people into anime and people into Japan.
To be fair, isn't anime like just 25% of TT's content lol
Most of their pods are about just their experiences and living life in Japan. It's been a running joke that TT started with the intention of being a gamer/anime centered show but the subject just gets brought occasionally or is sprinkled in. Their after dark show has been made into a gameshow type of thing and then they'll do challenge videos outside of the pod.
To me TT is just a newer and fresher style of jvlogs instead of the past shit of starting videos in selfie mode and "hey guys… i got to run some errands today so I thought i would take you with me sdklfjdskl" sharla type of shit
It was a give and take honestly.
One can't deny that TT audience is in a big percentage made of younger people unlike Abroadinjapan.
Also being exposed to communities he normally doesn't touch is great too.
Chris fans getting crazy for some opinions jeez.
I really wouldn't call them jvlogs. They talk about so much more than just Japan. Their podcast is like most podcasts: some dudes shooting the shit for a couple of hours.
Jvloggers like Sharla are still pretty popular, but not like they used to be. I would say CurrentlyHannah is the "new" type of jvlogger, a lot more travel and higher camera quality and less "selfie mode" vlogs.
Again, if you're going to keep making arguments about how different the audiences are like you did >>216415
too, then why are you even trying to compare them and say one benefitted from the other? Seems like a nitpick now since you keep pressing that the audiences are different and the filming is different.
If you think we are arguing on who's better then you are missing the point.
I only started to point how TT helped Chris to grow even more due the chance to bring exposed to communities he normally doesn't touch because unlike a major part of gaijins in Japan he's not a weeb.
Chris have said plenty of times his his audience is more older so
It's a valid

I think you are into something with the vtuber stuff kek
I was more into Chris and not that deep into anime but the bridge to Chris to TT is a lot milder than the three boys (except maybe Conner's) individual content. If you like one young guy with a British accent talk about random Japan adventures and food you'll probably like three young guys with British/Aussie accents talk about random Japan adventures and food. They don't go into anime as much anymore and only a handful of podcasts end up with a niche topic.
The biggest factor to all of them though is probably the lockdowns where watching them have fun in Japan was the closest most people couldn't get to travelling also while likely being stuck at home.(learn2sage)
I wonder if seeing Garnt and Sydney being able to show their relationship without issues migth affect Sharla(if she's indeed dating C).
Personally i'd feel envy of them in her position,having no need to hide my partner and go out with him without having to worry of people seeing us together or anything.
Kinda similar too Chris and Garnt two big YouTubers of 32yo…
This exactly and is not even about posting pictures with him,showing him off or else just freedom in general.
At your 30s having to worry about such things must feel so suffocating.
There are also examples of other big name YouTuber couples who have gone through nasty breakups in the public eye. Not every relationship ends well. Sharla has already had to gone through the embarrassing ordeal of talking about her divorce online. If she and Chris went public people would probably be up in her comments speculating about her showing Chris too little (have they broken up???) or too much (she’s getting more viewers/followers, benefitting from the relationship!!!) and thus can’t win.
And by not revealing their alleged relationship, they keep people on their toes. “Are they dating?” speculation is a lot more fun that “have they broken up?” speculation.
I mean if one bad love experience will make her act like that then I don't know what to say.
About the comments well it might happen at the beginning if they reveal it but as time goes by no one will care just look at Garnt/Sydney, Joey/Aki, Markiplier/Amy,etc.
Also living in fear that it will happen again is just not healthy.
I used to think the speculation was a factor but honestly she not even interesting for that matter,most will just say "well finally, let's jump to another train".
Can definitely be traumatic I know it's just that holding too much to the it it's not healthy.Learning a lesson from it? Sure.
Developing a possible fear of failure idk.
That's just my view obviously.
I guess both can well be the type of couple that likes to do everything in their house only.
Even the most reserved people I know like to go out with their partners and do shit.
Private to some degree, she is the one that pushed her ex-husband to be on social media and to appear in her videos. And she try really hard to have him in her videos without hiding his face.
With Chris is obviously different for obvious reasons.
7 years? And anons here were speculating that there was a chance of she getting married in the UK…
It's unlikely marriage will pass through her head until a fair amount of time,5+ years at minimum perhaps.
Well my unhealthy claim is linked to developing a vigilant behavior when going out together.
Eyes everywhere so they'll always gonna have to watch around such for a couple is a pain in the ass.
I mean by being a public figure one needs to do that already now we'll add another layer…jeez.
They have we know that but as always the friendship card is used.
Frankly we don't know their PDA behavior it could just be them making sure to be in certain places,Japan is good for that and even more when you don't go to the typical touristic places.
That and well the covid benefits of reducing the amount of foreigners that could recognize them.
Just heard the AiJ podcast and Chris said he was recognized hours after arriving and going into a restaurant kek, JP needs to fully open so milk can drop.

Is's so charming seeing Garnt and Sydney current situation.
File: 1654099134083.png (4.16 MB, 750x1334, 6EC6BE11-3D4A-4E9B-92A9-F3D5E6…)
And here’s Chris having an enormous breakfast with someone sitting across from him. Wasnt he supposed to be dieting on this trip? Nothing says diet like 3 kinds of meat at breakfast kek
File: 1654102425054.jpeg (621.89 KB, 2048x2048, 249DC59B-E10F-4AD8-A63C-A2F7EC…)
The same person that posted that she is visitong in his hone city. Lol They are doing a shit job hiding that they are together.
You are wrong he said he said he'll start a diet regime when he returns to Japan.
For his UK trip he said that he'll enjoy the food because it has been 2+ years.
I remember that he said that he'll record stuff during the Queen jubilee with connor/Joey.
Only saying this because the other dish seems to have meat and Sharla is pescatarian right?or maybe she was just lying about it.
Could be that she just left the area to be honest so she no longer cares about saying the place.
I guess during the trip they'll move around the country.
Then I don't see the point of labeling herself with x type of diet frankly.
Her reasons to change are valid
after all so no one would complain.
shh anon, be careful, we're about to get an earful blogposting from a certain person about how they're in their 30s and unmarried and how they are traveling with loads of scrote buddies and England's beaches are like the best in the world and have loads of international tourists a-a-and…anything at all to try and stymy conversation about Sharla and Chris.>>216633
to be fair Sharla doesn't really label herself vegan anymore from what I see. She still eats vegan food on occasion but that is just a choice, not her lifestyle.
And deleting those comments only draws attention because there's nothing odd about a friend dropping her off at the airport or hanging out with her when another friend is around, especially if that other friend is Natsuki.>>216620>>216625>Does she enjoy the speculation?
She has to as this point.
Dogen liked Joey's recent comment on his video, but is still ignoring Norm on youtube. Strange that he retweeted and responded to Norm on twitter three days ago. If something happened, it happened very recently.
File: 1654106638510.png (1.18 MB, 1456x722, Screen Shot 2022-06-01 at 2.00…)
Dogen seems like a nice guy, but I'm not the only one who thinks his house looks like dogshit right? The low ceilings are part of being in Japan, I get that. But tones of the house are just awful, mismatched wood and it blends very poorly with their admittedly very nice garden. Just one giant closet for the entire family, an absolutely dinky room for his daughters that he bragged was "symmetrical" kek (to the left in this screenshot) it seems like a total mishmash and very ugly to look at. It's one thing for that to be your house in Japan…but to call it your 'dream home' and be the one who made all these choices? It's ugly as fuck.
Norm is such an unlikeable dude, it doesn't surprise me that he may have finally gone off on someone that he actually knows and they're ignoring him. That amount of venom and bile can't just be saved for YT subscribers, but I doubt he'd ever be openly rude to someone with loads of subscribers like Chris or any of the TT guys. Dogen is pretty low tier so he probably felt safe being an asshole.
This makes me wanna do an experiment….
What if we comment right now saying we heard Chris voice in that video with Natsuki, we put the timestamp.
I wonder how much our comments will last .
And they are not shipping tweets at all just people thankful of meeting them.
Either avoiding due the hiding the relationship(bad job at it) or an ass towards the fans.
That's something i've always noticed in his livestreams and it was more evident during the ones at his apartment.
If it's due Sharla cat then lmao what a fool to torture himself at daily basis.
Clearly the other option is that his apartment and studio are dusty as hell but again he has asthma too so not cleaning properly would also stupid.
Since Sharla started posting UK related tweets he hasn't like or commented in any.
Knowing Chris you would think he would pull one or another joke at her because it's her first time in the UK but nope.Even more with Sharla latest post of a place in Kent too.
If anything he's making thing even more obvious plus this tweet of a person from Kent:>>215858
Cat allergy+ashtma don't forget.
Maybe those anons saying he was always horny for her since long time were indeed talking with some sense.
How is simply mentioning that that town isn't his hometown an 'attempt to derail'? Yeah we all know that they have been in Kent together and that people have spotted them together. If they were in his hometown that would add some weight to the rumours.
Why are you being so snarky over this shit?
Indeed there's extra information about his health he's not revealing but he did a full check up.
Apparently he's preparing a video about his health.
And to add on what previous anon said… yes he said will eat the food UK has to offer because it's been so long.So after the trip he plans a permanent change …if he can keep up his own word idk.
A new low for Chris.
Speculation chaser is degrading action for any content creator.
Hilarious you could write a post like this and still get a moronic denier in the replies >>216725
It's a gossip site, we can only post what is shared publicly online, if that extensive list is not good enough for you idk what to tell you
why? it's just speculation. no harm in it. it's like celebrity gossip: "this celeb was seen with this celeb, maybe they're dating." zendaya and tom holland went years before confirming their relationship, and by the time they did it all of their fans already knew about it, even without solid proof.
jvlogging gossip these days is a pretty dry well, this at least is fun to speculate about especially considering how hard they're trying to keep this alleged relationship under wraps. what else is there to talk about in this thread?
Lol, it’s so amusing isn’t it? do they expect
these 2 to say single forever and not date anyone? If no, why is the possibility of them dating so far fetch that people fight so hard to say they r not. I begining to think it’s either Chris or sharla’s simps on here, waiting for their turn lol.
Pewds/Marzia,Joey/Aki, Garnt/Sydney don't get such treatment by their fans so why would be different from Chris and Sharla?
Do they think of themselves as a top level couple able to lure all the parasocials or what kek
At max there will be extra talk when announced then it will die off and just another YouTuber couple.
Also the down bad parasocials follow certain type of YouTubers…
Currently the YouTuber in JP with the most amount of crazy ones is Cdawgva.
Another thing you have to know about Chris, is that he is notoriously quick to like any Twitter post from Sharla. But in his attempt to cover up the UK trip he has revealed much. Sharla is all over his home town posting pictures, talking about the food, the weather, going to events with him etc. but he has not like or commented on any of those posts. A simple comment like “hey you in the UK, my home country, my home town, how do you like it? nothing, zero, zilch. If they were “just friends” that he said to “hey come to my country and hang out,” there’s no reason that he could just not comment casually on her post, about things that she said or did. But he has strategically and deliberately stayed far far away from anything having to do with Her being in the UK. His lame cover up by dissociating so much from her being in the UK and with him, has become the biggest self reveal. you’re doing too much Chris! Lol
I think you are missing the point.
If the goal is to keep this possible relationship hidden then him acting as if she wasn't there with him is dumb due already being evidence.The logical route would be his casual jokeful interactions with her in socials.
"Why would they need to interact online if physically they are together" because the point of hiding the relationship is selling to the viewers that they are not together anon.
One reason of him not doing stuff to try to fool us is that he knows it's impossible to hide it so he abstains from lying and chooses to be silent.
Yeah that's the usual strategy.
I remember that back when the earthquake happened neither Chris or Sharla commented in each other posts about the situation,plenty of Sharla/Chris friends commented plenty of the ones they have in common too but those two good "friends" never interacted.
I found it quite weird and started to doubt.
I would be very shocked if a guy like Chris who put a small fortune into making his studio look like a movie set ramen shop wasn't maintaining it. Chris is a very visual person which is why his filming and photography are ahead of the other jvloggers. He wouldn't let his set collect dust. Pet dander seems more likely. His allergies can't be too bad as he also did that infamous documentary about Japan's cat obsession >>216711>>216716
I hope he gets this together. In my experience people who say they will do X especially if it's a diet after such and such day/event rarely ever end up going through with it. It's a mental trick like procrastination to make us feel better about not doing what we should do. I think his main issue is he looks at diet as a big event (remember the first JAJ was partially to lose weight) rather than lifestyle changes. He could still enjoy his classic British foods or fried chicken just in more moderation and in partnership with more activity.
Grumpy,cynical British guy…he doesn't use his social to act like that frankly otherwise his Twitter would be full of brand only stuff nothing of his personal life.
I wonder if he even actually believes his audience is there due him being single or something ,it would be hilarious if he really thinks that kek.>>216791
Oh definitely he's in Kent so him meeting old friends and chat is possible.>>216792
When you record you can cut up any moment it's not flattering so using the "cat nation" documentary as argument is kinda weak.
Yeah dust is unlikely that's why the cat point sounds valid
plus the rest of jvloggers when doing livestreams are always ok so I doubt there's some kind a everlasting flu or something. It's just him with the usual symptoms regardless of the season.
Personally it sounds like a living hell to keep up with the allergy symptoms even if not so strong.
With a mild allergy imagine sleeping in the same room with the cat,gosh it sounds dreadful for me.I love cats but if i were allergic to them I would keep my distance regardless of the level of allergy.
I bet traveling to the UK is huge relief for him due not longer being congested at a daily basis.
Maro is a cat … I think it's a big possibility that Sharla and Chris live together:
1) he hasn't shown his apartment since before he broke up with his old gf 3 and a half years ago
2) sharla refused to show an entire room in her apartment during the tour = that is most likely his office
The theory is that such is due sharla cat because both live together.
Every single livestream he is like affected by some mild runny nose which could be a symptom of his cat allergy.
I think in the livestream with chiaki he was fine but most likey due just returning from Okinawa.
Single part of his brand? kek
That's only applicable for Cdawgva I think.
This migth sound odd for me but:
I don't think men sit and look at Chris and say "he's just like me" kek.
His type of humour and the British stereotype is the main catch.
There can be fans who have the hots for him but unlikely it's a major part of his audience so his relationship status it's not a core point of abroadinjapan.

karen is in the uk with them? lol everyone is in the uk except aki it seems
I honestly don't get the hype. He seems like he is on a verge of a midlife crisis, lost his passion for youtube but forces himself to do it because it is litereally his life at this point and there is nothing else in his life to fill up the gap. He clearly lost touch with his audience as an ageing millenial still trying to cater to an audience that is now over decade younger than him. Him and Marzia moving to japan just perfectly illustrates that they are trying to to fill up the void of their empty life and making it exciting again even though it all seems forced.
All that fuss about the dogs and treating them like literal children, taking the private jet because they can't breathe in the cargo is also pure pain to watch. The hyprocrisy and cruelty of adopting some of the most sickly and inbred dog races finally shows. Marzia should finally drop the eco friendly business woman pretense, it doesn't fit at all their privileged lifestyle.
She's not 10. Why is that awkward? It's a group of people, not some wedding or boyfriend introduction. Where do you get this idea Sharla isn't into listening to podcasts just because she's not in one? Same with his dad.>>216901
I wouldn't call pete and his editor detrimentally important.>>216907
It isn't a reach it's just his usual behavior.
It would be weird to comment and stuff if both are hanging around everyday thought which is most likely the case so he doesn't comment at all.
He refrains from lying so he is just quiet.

So it was open to the public but pitched more to those interested in starting their own podcasts or getting advice from established types like Chris and Pete.
With chiaki living in London sharla can easily post and get away honestly.
Btw the studio to record the podcast is in London so Chris have been there already,in the last podcast he talks about taking the train .

hate to say I told you soooooooo, but right on q she posted about being in London! but that’s just a coincidence lol!
Chris most likely already show her all Kent.
Now time to be in London for some days I bet.

Well it didn't take long for them to be seen together.
The lady knows there's more than simply friendship there instantly.
Frankly they should just reveal it, it's getting tired their weak attempt to still hide it.
File: 1654196235376.png (1.96 MB, 1928x953, pantry desk.PNG)
There were parts of Dogen's house that I really loved, namely the courtyard, onsen bath, kitchen, and porch area just outside the kitchen, but the daughter's rooms is really… yeah. I didn't even notice the mismatched wood kek. I love the table just outside the daughters room but their room… is it just going to be their beds in there and that's it? What if they want little knickknacks and stuff? I like the aesthetic of it all but I struggle to see it as anything more than a showroom. I hope he'll show us more of us once they're all moved in, I'm interested to see what the space will look like with people living in it.
Also the desk space in the pantry is fucking weird. What the fuck is she gonna do in there that she can't just sit at her big kitchen island?
It’s funny Sharla and Chris didn’t go to MCM but are now visiting London.”
I was responding to that post.
Kek it only a few hours for that anon words to be fulfilled.
Isn't it just good friendship?Chris his personal guide,traveled together,both in Kent,now both in London.
Chris long awaited trip after 2.5+years was to help sharla in her trip ,such friendship.
The onsen was awesome, I can't deny that. But yeah impractical is the best way of putting it. I know Japanese homes are far smaller than most European or North American houses but this one was small plus lacking in functional sense. That tiny couch embedded into the wall, the random narrow nooks, and yeah the daughter's room having space for a couple of futons only. Also the idea of one closet for the entire family sounds kind of sensical at first blush but I feel like it gives a lot more opportunity for accidental intrusions and like, losing your own shit because your sister or daughter accidentally/on purpose took it. And the wood, that triggered
me hard. Mismatched wood can look good, but it has to be artful and very clearly deliberate. In Dogen's house it really looks like they just bought a palette of cheap assorted light-to-medium woods, cool tones, warm tones, whatever…and just used them blindly. And the ceiling being lacquered looking wood as well? I think it may have been laminate. It looked so awful, and made the house look even more cramped. I'd be interested to see how it looks with stuff in it but right now it looks like a weird knock-off made of various balsa woods of a Muji prefab house.
>>217007>Person posts where they are on social media
Oh my god they have been spotted everywhere!!!!!
You lot make me laugh

or a g&t (though looks like chris has a beer)
I'll add Chris photo of his meal and not hiding he's with someone (other plate in the photo).
Feeling both are testing the waters if people are able to connect the dots.
Seems like a cider which fits with Chris who prefers them more than beer and how bold of her to post that,one can easily tell it's Chris.
Anon here >>217032
is probably into something…Sharla maybe is tired of such unnecessary secrecy.
Why would it? It’s about wacky places to visit, not about their personal lives. Chris channel is not very personal, he doesn’t really let his viewers in much. So he doesn’t really have a parasocial relationship with his viewers. Conner while a bit more personal, has made it very clear that he will not divulge
much about his personal life. So a great portion of both of their viewers are not there because they’re single,dating ,married etc. they tune in because they like their content.

Tkyo Sam has entered the shipping chat. Lol
His brand dies if he leaves japan.
I guess he could gain cash if he improves his "Chris abroad" second channel.
But it will be way less than the current income.

Never seen a YouTuber personally that doesn’t have their girlfriend model there new merch/clothing brand. When I first saw this I thought it was a new gf, and joey ended things with aki. Nice views though.

He needs skinny hot models not FAT people(nitpicking)
I've lived in the UK, North America and Japan. Japan is a lot more convenient, but I was thinking in regards to her personality and career. I think even the jump from Japan to her home nation wouldn't be easy since she lives in an expat bubble in Japan. Sightseeing in England is very different from living there and she's in her mid-30s, so it's not like when you're a uni student and don't have to worry as much about responsibilities.>>217256>Living out of her comfort zone is who she is, she likes the challenge.
I don't think we're talking about the same Sharla.
LOL Japan is notoriously one of the most difficult countries for foreigners to live in. Visas are difficult, banks are difficult, living is difficult, getting an apartment is difficult, fitting in society is difficult, Jobs are difficult! Sprinkled all of those with a heathy dose of racism! Japan literally is the opposite of “convenient”for foreigners, it’s a grind, you can only go so far career wise! People that moved to Japan move to Japan because they love Japan and I are willing to overlook some of the major pitfalls. UK in general is a much easier society to live in, to function, to Rent/buy and to have a career especially if you’re white from Canada! The only thing that’s convenient about Japan is its public transportation and that it has really good convenience stores, that’s about it lol.

Why didn’t he add the male model?

Most milky thing about her is her bad photoshopping. The thighs to arm ratio is laughable. Her ass isn’t that big clearly in the clothing advertisement. Besides that she is the average scandalous cosplayer. I have also noticed some distance in Joey. The wedding without his girlfriend feels off.
Have you actually lived and worked in both Japan and the UK? Or are you just repeating what you've read on the internet? Housing is far cheaper and more conveniently located in Japan. It's much easier to get a work visa if you're a native English speaker with just a BA and no other skills in Japan than it is in the UK. Sharla doesn't have a traditional career history and would have more trouble getting a UK work visa with the same credentials. She lived in Morioka, not somewhere in the boonies in Akita or Aomori, because that's where she went on exchange when she first went to Japan. She moved there twice when she returned to Japan because it was cheaper and she already knew people there. Sendai is the largest city in Tohoku and are we pretending Chris wasn't one of the main reasons why she moved there? Sharla went to Josai Intl U and after uni, still spends the majority of her work and private time in English with other foreigners, and on top of that, most of them are associated with youtube. That is a bubble. Her vlogs have hardly changed over the years. Her biggest life change was getting married and moving to Korea, but she soon divorced and moved back to her comfort zone (Morioka), and her other big change is the airbnb, which is located in Japan. I'm not talking about which country is better, btw, I'm talking about Sharla's career and personality. She's not in her early 20s. She'll have to work harder to make new friends and start a career, if she moves permanently to the UK and she isn't particularly wealthy. She can depend on Chris financially and for work and friends at first, but I think she'd get bored and it could also affect their relationship. I don't think it'll be easy for Chris' channel, either, and Chris seems to realize that since he's talking of living in both places.
sharla is with Chiaki today so I bet her next vlovg will be here I am with my friend Chiaki hanging out in London with no Chris. And then all the deniers will come in here screaming
“see she’s not even eith Chris, she’s with that girl Chiaki!” Lol it will be fun! Mark my words!!!!
Chiaki returned to the UK yesterday so defenders can say nothing plus we already have tweets of people seeing her with Chris in London.
Her own Instagran story shows Chris kek look >>217030
Don't know where you're from or what your profession is, but just like in Japan, you need a company to hire you and demonstrate you have special skills to get a work visa in the UK in your 30s. Perhaps you're new, but Sharla has talked in detail more than once on her channel and in interviews about why she moved to Morioka each time. It's not that hard to gauge whether or not she's very wealthy if you take into account her views and how much one makes as a part-time translator with a side business shipping boxes of stationary, and the very cheap rent was one of the reasons why she said she moved back to Morioka over other places.
No one is forced to live in the foreigner bubble, but you now admit that Sharla does live one.
Just because someone is white and and an English-speaker doesn't mean they'll have an easy time living in the UK.
What’s your point? Moving to another country is always difficult, no one says going to be easy. But you want us to project that life in the UK is gonna be hard, when you have no way of knowing what her plans are. For me or you to speculate about how she’s going to get a visa is silly, she is a grown adult, it’s not impossible to get a visa howerver difficult, and it’s her problem to figure out, I frankly don’t care how she manages it! I have no way of predicting if she will like or not like the UK, it’s really none of my concern, I just don’t care if she stays or leave Japan for Timbuktu, TBH. My point is she is equipped to deal with a change of culture because she has done so twice! she’s not a child, she is not stupid! Either way it’s her problem to figure out. All I know is if she can manage to live and make it in Japan as long as she did, she can manage the change elsewhere. It’s not that serious
They’re also both single, unlike Joey and Peachy. And chris and Sharla have chemistry,
and have been traveling together. Aki and Joey may be on the outs but who knows. She could’ve just not wanted to go for other reasons.
I would honestly take her to the thot page since her gimmik is cosplay modeling and not so much vlogging like everyone else ITT >>>/w/174607
Does she even have milk though besides she shops?

Sharla's Patreon Stream:
-90% talk about British Food
- No mention of meeting or travelling with Chris even though this picture was taken in Herne Bay, 15 minutes from Whitstable
- Vlogged in London with Chiaki
- Wants to come back to England in winter
Also one thing to add to your list, a slip she may not be aware that she made .
She spoke about how the shower head in the place didn’t work properly.
Chris mentioned to Pete in the podcast that the shower head in his Airbnb was broken.
And no mention >>217457
She mentioned that she is not on a strict diet while there.
Another line to the tiger I wonder if deniers are still alive.
I bet they will say they are staying together to save money kek>>217446
Was the background the same as her public video?
I'm suspecting they are now living in London due the amount of things that Chris has to do plus the tourism.
Yes, but many people are his and her Patreon member and can easily validate what is said. But honestly,I don’t know what you want. Just sharing a little bit of what is being told on their Patreons stream, because some people are curious. Clearly we can’t link videos because it’s behind a paywall. you can take it or leave it. It’s a moot point to argue, you’re not seeing it, so you’re choosing not to believe, and that’s fair enough. Anyyway both of them, especially chris are very careful, and don’t give much away. For example chris deliberately held his live stream on May 15, before he left for the UK, when he usually holds it the last Saturday of each month. I suspect he did so, because he did not want people to recognize that he and Sharla where at the same place. Sharla is very loose with her dates and held Mays livestream in June and was very very careful to not even mention chris name, I mean she spoke about Connor more lol. just giving you a little bit of tipbits of what we heard, like I said take it or leave it.(post caps or gtfo)
Were you there when this slip up happened? >>166830
Shame that none of you patreon members bothered to take a screenshot, that would have been actual solid proof.
Joey has always been friends with tons of costhots and sex workers, It’s hardly news. I saw him hanging with some big names at an event in the US years ago and Aki was nowhere in sight, maybe not even in town. Whatever this is probably isn’t any different than they’re usual arrangement. Either Aki is very trusting or they are open. Having an actual model for your merch is normal.
Re: Sharla and Chris, I used to believe it was bullshit and I still dont see the “chemistry” but the travel is enough evidence for me to buy it. You don’t just secretly travel and stay with your platonic friend. They must be really fearful of the relationship messing up their brands, which I get. They’ll be expected to make videos together. Should they ever break up the fans will split and Harass them for years.
He's been kinda dull like the only new thing he created was wacky weekend but yeah he mentioned being stressed due being trapped in JP…
I guess I'll wait his content post travel to judge properly.

Out of curiosity I went to check on the old jvlogger crew and pdr/mimei have a kid now. Good for them!
Sharla was openly married on her channel before, learned her lesson when she got divorced that its not good to have your relationship on your business page. If they are dating, its not much deeper than that. Can we just ban the brain damaged Nonnie
spouting weird bullshit like >>217032
Garnt wedding today according to his post.
I guess today is also the other wedding Chris and Sharla will attend (dunno if the same).>>217627
Don't try to moderate dumb anon.
File: 1654433493892.jpg (154.75 KB, 1080x1046, IMG_20220605_075001.jpg)
Indeed.It did surprise me too.
I guess not many of you are married or are at an age where friends have gotten married. Depending on culture it’s quite normal to not invite everyone you know, especially if it is a newer friend. How much money you have to spend, how intimate you want the thing to be, etc etc are all things to take into consideration.
One thing that is true for all cultures I know of, is that you usually bring your SO - unless you live in a culture, where you don’t have official SO’s before marriage. Not inviting your SO can be alright if it’s for monetary reasons (“we can’t afford to invite everyone we know, if we have to invite SO’s, so we opted for just inviting our close friends”), but it can still be quite dramatic.
IMO, the fact that Ali isn’t there is not a good sign for Joey and Aki. But the fact that Chris and Garnt don’t necessarily know each other that well, or that there might be a more important wedding for Chris doesn’t mean they aren’t friends.
Yeah they gonna use that to mock Chris,fully deserved but it will be just in the healthy British bashing.
Hopefully at least he send a gift.
File: 1654527147893.jpg (295.91 KB, 2048x1152, 20220606_094852.jpg)
Chris is way younger than Pete but looks older somehow,his shit as hell habits are definitely catching up with him.Perhaps he doesn't realize that he's no longer in his 20s.
Latest picture from his Twitter.
File: 1654530412424.jpeg (462.36 KB, 960x967, A439AA57-C1E0-4BE4-BE7C-A02435…)
It says a LOT that editor Mudan was at the wedding but not Aki.
True no obligation although if things get obvious (with pics) it will be quite clownish to still hiding it.
So far they are ok.>>217823
I see then how odd Chris didn't attend to Garnt wedding.
I guess he had another wedding besides the one of his sister.
Sharla saying a friend of hers was getting married was true probably so Chris went with her instead.
Even the Vtuber Mori calliope (DEMONDICE) went too.
I'm buying the idea that Aki is not friends of Sydney tbh.
Crappy food,drinking a lot,overweight,stress,no exercise,etc.
Oddly enough this downhill trend got more intense since he supposedly started to date Sharla(aprox 3 years ago).
The old gf probably asked him to watch himself kek
Was not same day as Chris sister wedding so nope.
Another person wedding.
That's my conclusion because Garnt said Chris had a wedding for the same day so if his sister was before then there's an extra wedding.
Sharla joining him is quite likely but this point is a guess obviously.

Aki seems to be insinuating she was too ill to attend the wedding, yet she went to that fireworks show and to Osaka.

Even Karen showed up to the wedding. I think this just confirms Aki doesn’t jive with everyone. She sort of mentions it in her older videos that she feels all alone and has no “real friends”, but it was played off as a meta skit.
Heck more than abroadinjapan and cdawgva too.>>217898
Seems so,the current views are a shadow of previous years truly on the way to become less and less relevant.
Even Joey presence doesn't help much.
I looked it up on fb and your right. his sister openly posts about him on her fb page.
I can’t believe Sharla wore a black suit to her SIL wedding LOL
Well maybe S doesn't care about his looks much so he has no issues in going all out with his bad habits. Definitely on the way to lose a lot of his charm if not careful.
My headcannon is that she doesn't want to lose another partner so she lets Chris mess up his body in order to make him unattractive to other girls.(headcanon bs)

His sister looks like Sharla!
File: 1654554674154.jpg (240.14 KB, 1080x1723, IMG_20220606_172744.jpg)
Anon he was little chubby back 2019 or early 2020 he was even better that the average Englishman I'd say.
Right now he's way beyond that.
There's one thing you gotta learn about Chris he knows camera angles pretty well if he's controlling it it's unlikely for you to see the real deal ,this is a photo from Tokidoki video(april).
Dark clothes are no longer helping.
I wonder if he realizes the facial similarities it's hard to ignore them.
Yeah not much alike I guess she's more similar to the father,there's as video of him with young Chris in YouTube (killer robots competition).
Chris is really similar to his mother.
File: 1654556169901.jpg (221.08 KB, 900x1080, IMG_20220606_175456.jpg)
Huh you think he's sitting straight? I realize the position anon.
I paying more attention to his tummy,cheeks,and manboobs which are way more notable than before.
Here June 3 Connor livestream…ad I said the dark clothes no longer help.
Wtf we are noting the similar face structure anon.
Don't tell me you don't see that?
If you are jumping something easy to realize to what you just said then get help for real.
Are you a weeb or something? what is wrong with you?
How does your mind go to such ideas?
Same thought here I really doubt he's unaware of how unflattering is using such style of clothing.
I think he trusts his camera work which to be fair hides it pretty well.>>217975
I think he really likes tight tshirts,plenty of old videos show such even before covid.
In his podcast he mentioned buying new shoes only,his size 10.5(UK) was hard to find in Japan.
On par I would say,Chris eyes are the reason I feel.
I think facial hair helps actually.
I think anon has such idea due Sharla divorce maybe he thinks Sharla will be unable to find someone else in the case Chris leaves her.>>217988
He's someone not into marriage from what I've seen but who knows maybe the recent weddings changed his view.
If anything it wouldn't happen so soon after his sister tbh.
It's a headcannon baby you don't have to like it.>>217989
Yes out of sudden a bunch answered to my comment.>>217992
Well a bit of that,Chris is still young and not gonna lie fairly attractive,JAJ1 did show it.
Let's be honest in Japan the potential partners are limited you either met a gaijin from the group that most know or JP chicks are the option and he already experimented with the later.
If he gets into a better shape,JP opens to tourists and he travels as before then I don't see why would she not worry after all didn't he abruptly ended a 3 year long relationship with his previous gf so nonchalantly.
He never seemed that into his ex, but obvi the stuff they post on social media don't tell the whole story and he is a private person so who knows. Maybe he was very into her. But that could be why the relationship seemingly was ended "nonchalantly"
Also with Sharla he puts up with her cat despite being allergic LOL if that isn't love then what is. They also seem like a very good match.
When Chris is at his hottest (though I always think he is quite attractive) they are on the same level of attractiveness IMO.
What does tourists have to do with it? Chris only seems to date people who have lived in Japan for a long time.
The way she got heavily purged from Chris friends circle tells that it was a rough ending otherwise why try to erase her if good terms.
I say tourists and Japan returning to his before covid stage due the higher chance of partners ,right now is limited to be honest.
The more cards the more temptation as always.
Is not only dating anon simply hook ups would not surprise me with how he good he is with secrecy.
I say good shape Chris is more attractive than her honestly,I can mock him right now but journey accros Japan 1 Chris was a delight.
You can go back two threads and get a general picture of the odd situation with the past gf.
She got purged from Chris circle of friends overnight and yes she and Sharla used to follow each other in twitter too.
A normal ending of a relationship would not provoke such behavior,why try to erase her presence.
It was guilt from him definitely.
How to tell an anon hasn't ever had a relationship (let alone one end in a shitty way).
This is pretty normal anon, especially when a friend group has taken a side.
Huh? If it's true that the start of his new relationship(with S) was like that then I agree with being wary.
This is cliche but i do follow the idea that "a bad beginning makes a bad ending".
They were her friend too anon.
Heck Chris and Lily traveled to visit Sharla in Korea even.
A good ending in a relationship doesn't provoke such things anon, the way you answer tells me you are yet to have a healthy one.
Jeez anon it seems you can't read the general picture.
The headcannon of that person is simple in order for reduce the chances of him dumping her she's ok with him fucking his body.
It's dumb honestly.
The tourism,travelling him getting into shape was said by someone else.
Old nonnies here know how losing weight and Chris unable to keep his word are the every year failed promise.
He just went overboard this time.>>217978
That's his shoe size?odd it was never revealed before.
I'm just surprised don't think weird.
He likes tight Tshirts,he has money he could simply order a bigger size and problem solved yet he doesn't do it.
It could be also that the brand he likes doesn't make bigger sizes e.e
It will explain the purge towards her and how she reacts at him being mentioned.
And this >>218035
which seems believable.>>218020
Looks like it's the case such crappy guy honestly,that would explain how he mentions in her stories or examples his past gfs but never Lily.
He mentions the JP ones and the one he had before going to Japan.It wouldn't surprise he feels guilty.
To be honest JP has been closed 2+ years.
Who's gonna see them? Other gaijins? Most live in Tokyo and the ones who go to Sendai probably know about their relationship already and JP people don't care.
Pandemic played on their favor that to hide their shit no doubts.
Almost 15 days in the UK and they have been spotted together more than once already,that's way more than anything we had in the last year I think kek.
Once JP fully opens they'll have a bit more difficult.
There's no concrete milk either. It's all a bunch of maybe and circumstances. Anons aren't wrong when they have called out Sam before for posting here. We already he craves the attention and anons like >>218062
really have the energy he gives off, not to mention the lack of reddit spacing, but still reddit format. He also has a GAB which means he's a Qanon supporter most likely which means he loves conspiracies like Chris and Sharla dating, as anyone can see from the gross post he made about them without, again, proof. This Chris and Sharla thing needs to stop. Unless they come out about it, I'm just going to do what the OP says and report anyone who keeps derailing about them dating. This has destroyed this thread completely.
Parents fucked up when naming Garnt>>217349>Many people have sex with there best friends boyfriend
Maybe the degenerates you know, anon>>217938
She really looks just like her. It's not uncommon for guys to like girls who look like a female version of them, it's kinda cute imo but funny how similar they look here.
She’s almost 32 years old, this is very immature behaviour. She needs to move on.
Plenty of people get dumped, it’s a part of life.
your personal obsession is showing. Why would it be weird?
And how is it weirder than seeing your non-Japan friends become mothers?
Is she the first woman to decide against kids you've ever come across?
>What’s she gonna do when they become moms as well? Just film cat and pokemon videos for eternity?
you are pathetic. She's gonna live her life like before. It's not like stuff stops being fun when you turn 40 and are childless. The horror!
She can be a fun aunt, if she wants to be around kids. Or not if she doesn't. How does anything have
I sincerely hope you're like 15 and life is just a big, big mystery to you.
god, obsess over something valid
She said her former partner wanted kids, so she didn't dismiss having them. She's never struck me as particularly motherly or home-makery.
got, stfu, scrote
She said it's something she didn't discount but it was never a particularly great dream of hers.
you are either 13 or a total idiot.
and it totally depends on your partner and your life with them. maybe her ex was someone she could imagine kids with and now she doesn't. it's not black and white.

They have Been spotted. The picture was posted on here.

My other fav thing about her is how much she tried to set her stake in the jvlog world but lost footing After the breakup, so she tried to make friends with the twitch japan streamers
ok i'm definitely a little surprised by her.atlas announcing she had a baby. i watch every video she posts and had NO idea she was ever pregnant. she hid it weirdly well… she was a month along last july, so she had her baby in february-march this year. there's a vlog from january where she's wearing a sweatsuit and it's not obvious AT ALL that she's pregnant, but I guess it was baggy enough to hide it? and then there's a vlog in april of her going to the gym and she's completely fit/thin with a flat stomach in leggings. she must not have gained almost ANY baby weight.
just goes to show how easy you can hide your private life with a little bit of effort and how easily viewers can be duped..

Actually, what I find, more Intresting is that out of 10 years living in Japan he has had 3 serious relationships, 2 of wish were with foreigners. It’s rumored that after his 1 serious relationship with a Japanese girl, he realized that it was not his thing. Per lily his ex that’s one reason that Chris keeps his relationship with white girls a secret, because he is afraid he will get slack for not dating Japanese girls.
I don't think Chris likes tight shirts. He just rarely updates his wardrobe even though his clothes no longer fit. If you watch his videos, you'll see that he's been wearing the same unwashed, wrinkled shirts for years. No offense to Natsuki, but he should also go to a different hair salon and get someone else to cut his hair. Don't know what small circles the anon who claims he looks young or like your typical Brit his age, but he actually looks older than the average guy because of how unkempt and out of shape he is. He's 32, not in his 40s or 50s.>>218063
They're obviously referring to the natives in Japan. Chris and Sharla are practically unknowns among the Japanese population. Duncan and Mimei get more recognized because their audience is mostly Japanese.
I don't think there was cheating involved, I think Chris and Sharla got together months after breaking up with her husband/his girlfriend.
That being said, there was definitely tons of chemistry between them, especially in livestreams they did together. Every video they did they got lots of comments about their chemistry. That must have been tough for Lily to watch, even if they didn't cheat.
>>218281>I don't think there was cheating involved
Why not? Everything about that situation points towards it. Why else would she be this salty kek >>215392 >>218039
Also I'm pretty sure that this anon was her >>180560
It's called the baby fever phase that most women have.
We don't know if she already had it,once it passes it's unlikely to change your mind.
At 36 she's most likely with a proper idea about the matter.
She's salty because her boyfriend dumped her. Doesn't mean there's cheating involved, I have never seen her act salty towards Sharla.
Chris was also constantly sick and exhausted on Journey Across Japan, when would he have had the time to cheat? I don't buy it.
The cheating is a big option anon,don't think of Chris as another higher type of guy or something.
Sharla could have tease him until he dumped his gf.
JaJ1,the chemistry in camera and sudden end of a 3 year relationship…
Yet anons think cheating is unlikely kek>>218304
"Too tired to possibly cheat"
You can have chemistry and still have the willpower not to do anything. Neither Chris nor Sharla seem like cheaters.
Seriously, when would he have had the time to cheat? He rode his bike day in and day out and edited late into the night.
Kek he's had feelings for her for a very long time. >>159121
Him saying that he didn't like her until visiting her in Korea was a lie.
It was obvious that he had a huge crush on her in their first collabs together. In his interactions with her online back then he came off as a whiteknight/simp.
To be honest her Instagram account is irrelevant the last post was July 2021.
If she was active on it then I would agree,most likely she no longer uses Instagram.
Parasocial? LOL just because I don't think they seem like people who make rash decisions (i.e. cheat on their longtime partners while on a trip, thus risking their reputations and careers).
Why are YOU so sure they cheated? Were you with them on the trip?
I don't see anything cute on a life of eternal runny nose and tissues in your pockets frankly.
Back in a wacky weekend video a crappy hotel room almost triggered
his asthma ,in the video we can see Chris eyes a bit red even.
Can't picture dealing with the cat allergy on dialy basis even if mild it's a everyday annoyance.
I say i respect his choice but finding it cute? Nope.
I accept the chance of that happening that's my point.
If both alone what risk there was?
It's not like recording team had Chris or Sharla in a leash pal.
It would be odd if she was active there,trust me I'll side with you if she had a fresh posts.
But it seems like a abandoned account.
I meant his reply to that comment is cute. Him having a crush on her is cute. And that crush explains putting up with the cat allergies.
It's his choice, clearly he values Sharla over a non-stuffy nose. Plenty of people give up things in order to be with people they love.
Maybe she was unaware of all the pieces?
And again we have her twitter behavior towards him.
File: 1654681947669.jpeg (207.65 KB, 1299x1080, tom-brady-gisele.jpeg)
people are subconsciously attracted to people who resemble themselves. Check out the insta @siblingsordating
She may not act salty towards Sharla but she unfollowed her right after being dumped and pretty much ignores her existence while she still contacted her friends like Rachel, Micaela, Victor and others in her desperation to be part of the jvlogger clique or popular gaijin clique.
In this twitter reply >>189833
you can tell she has disdain for both of them.>When would he have had the time to cheat?
Literally any time they finished cycling and went to a hotel or Ryokan at the end of the day, like in this livestream vid where they are both in a hotel room together late at night >>208129
and at the end of the 'I got stuck on top of a mountain' vid. You can also cheat emotionally which is what happened at the very least.
Or, you know, he wasn't happy in his old relationship, so he broke up. and Sharla was single too, so they started a relationship.
The tinfoil on some people…
>>218491> interesting how he said he disliked her before but liked her now because she "swears" lol.
That was a joke?
But IF they are together than it'd be nice if he makes her happy
Yeah, this is fairly common. It's not cheating per se, so her charging forward with a bunch of angry tweets claiming he cheated wouldn't have been "true", necessarily. >>218492
and that's definitely not an admission of feelings or anything dramatic like that, but people (Chris is a human after all not just a joke making robot) generally don't joke about dating people that they may actually want to date. Like joking about dating Connor is way more obviously a gag as Chris is heterosexual. Joking about dating some woman is a joke that probably has a grain of truth for most heterosexual men.
Gosh, I hope nobody ever reads into every single phrase I utter as much as anons here do.
Not everything is pregnant with a deep meaning.
Unless there is proof, this is all still speculation.
I wish them the best, whomever they are dating and I'd like some proof. Then people can go crazy interpreting every burp they made in each other's direction
There is plenty of proof that they are dating and are living together … just look at these past threads. No proof of cheating though, which is why I am sure they did not cheat.
They most likely got together a few months after each break up. Then he moved into her apartment.
That’s because you’re deluded into thinking she and Chris are an item. Sharla is totally the same with Natsuki! They are 2 different people, and Natsuki does not speak English.
Urrrgh you tinfoilers are so cringey I almost die of secondhand embarrassment reading your theories.
At this point it’s more embarrassing to not believe they’re together. The proof is overwhelming. Add to that their obvious chemistry that people always comment on in their videos.
I just don’t understand deniers? I don’t ship SxC but it’s so obvious they are together.
>>218476>She may not act salty towards Sharla but she unfollowed her right after being dumped
With that timing, there's not much reason for Lily to drop Sharla unless she knew Chris and Sharla were already dating or planning to together. Maybe Chris and Sharla didn't have a physical relationship while he was still with Lily, but they may have already started an emotional relationship and decided they would date before he finally broke up with Lily. It's not cheating per se, but kind of assholerly on Chris' part because he should've broken up with Lily much earlier. Visiting Sharla in Korea with Lily is kinda gross.>>218480>>218485
Adding onto that, Lily is unhinged and there might be some skeletons in her own closet that she doesn't want Chris to reveal. Or they have some kind of deal that requires her to keep quiet, so she makes passive-aggressive comments instead.
Not that they cheated, but Anons who think Sharla and Chris or other couples aren't capable of cheating in general are very naive and probably quite young. Many people who are otherwise perfectly nice, kind and upstanding cheat, even under the noses of their close friends. People who don't cheat just don't, not because they act a certain way in public or with non-romantic friends.
It's only gaslighting if it isn't true. I feel fairly certain that Chris and Sharla are an item.
I would say that it's the deniers that seem to be into Chris and therefore do not want him dating Sharla despite a mountain of evidence.
There is no evidence nonny
, it’s just circumstantial he said she said no one took a screenshot.
Yes they have travelled together and are currently in London. No they are not getting married.
None of it is undeniable proof of their relationship. You can reee and joke that the deniers will still shut down real evidence but you’re just in denial yourself.>>218616
Agreed I think it’s tkyoham too, have you noticed any thread in /w/ to do with anyone associated with Japan is just full of the same type of infighting bullshit? (oh except Mikan because he thinks she’s ugly kek)>>218653
You don’t know for certain that it is true do you? What you’re saying is gaslighting anyone who doesn’t believe! I don’t want to fuck Chris, I just wish you lot would fuck off with your weird obsessive fan fictions
Personally I think they are together and I think they make a good couple. If they’re not it doesn’t bother me lol but I do think they have great chemistry, I’ve thought so since Journey AJ1. I think the whole “didn’t like her at first” was because he only knew her online persona, very cute and gentle, no swearing, etc. Then he got to know her as an actual person who he got along with really well, they spark off each other. Also he’s got family in Vancouver and she’s from Victoria. He’s been to BC a couple of times at least.
Idk about kids from Sharla’s pov, she may not want them, or she may just not want to discuss it with the public. Chris has mentioned kids in the past and said he wouldn’t want to bring them up in Japan. If they were in a long term relationship they’d have to figure that out. But that’s their business.
I like them together and kind of hope they are, in a “two people that I think are cool and would work well, hope they’re happy” way. If not, then whatever. The speculation gets them lots of engagement so I guess it’s working. They could easily just say that they aren’t together and that would be that. The fact that they don’t is significant.
I’d never heard of him (TkyoSam) until I saw him in this thread. I’ve never seen a video. I mostly watch Chris and Sharla, only watch others like Tokyo Creative videos, Tokidoki traveller, Ryotaro, that I saw through C&S. occasional Connor or Joey if they are with Chris. I’ve watched a few of Norm’s after seeing him on Sharla’s channel. I don’t mind some of his stuff but I don’t like what I’ve learned about him as a person here and on other gossip sites. Watched the Dogen house thing because of Norm and seeing him with Chris but his content is not interesting to me and his personality is meh.
This thread would be dead without C&S speculation since there’s nothing interesting otherwise.
He does look good. He looks so tired these days, I don't think he's getting enough sleep poor bloke.
He has Flanderized himself now. It's a shame, but I think most of his viewers enjoy his super sarcastic grumpy persona.
You might want to look into the definition of "proof"
A conjecture might be based on some
data that might indicate
that they are together.
Correlation does not imply causation. And the fact that they own the same cup can come about by many different ways (e.g. friggin IKEA making everybody's stuff!).
This doesn't mean that they AREN'T together. But evaluate your priors and how they might influence your views.
Those of you who are SUPER into thinking that they are together evaluate everything on the PRIOR belief that they ARE in fact together. Everybody else has a different prior and evaluates the evidence accordingly.
Eventually, we all might get to the truth.
Ok, you have updated my prior beliefs somewhat. That is less likely to occur by chance than the simple IKEA cup that some people posted (the taupe sort of color).
I'd actually like them as a couple and was just pointing out that proof is something else than data pointing in a particular direction. particularly when the data can be interpreted many ways
Can't picture the scenarios in which I would let a guy carry my wallet.She is recording so maybe that's the reason although she could have easily put it in her bag.

Yeah you're right it does look very similar. Looks like the same ceiling with the dark line going around and same lights, looks like the same wall design and TV too.
And curtains too. It makes sense that he would have his office in the second apartment.
I suppose this means Sharla got the second apartment earlier than she said she did.
The wall looks literally the same as Sharla’s faux concrete wall …the TV is the same … the lights match. In a photo Joey posted like a year ago you can see the curtains in the background and they look exactly like Sharla’s.
this also looks nothing like his old apartment. Don’t you find it curious how he hasn’t shown his apartment since 2018? Not even once?
This. Not everybody who dates East Asian women has yellow fever and not everybody who lives there and doesn't dislikes them.
Most people are just normal and date whomever they like on many levels. One of those is also cultural expectations and all of that.
Many Japanese women might prefer more rigid social roles and progression towards a family and all that (not all!). That might be something Chris wasn't ready for.
Only his crazy Ex would claim that people are giving him a hard time because he's not with a Japanese person. If those people exist, they are dumb and unworldly and don't understand how relationships work.
And you guys are the judges of that how?
Her Japanese is good. Her Keigo might have suffered since she graduated uni and hasn't been using it much but her conversational Japanese in all her videos where she goes to places like the homestay on a farm is fine. And she can read well.
I’m not sure that’s what the anon meant but you lot only read what you want to see.
We want to deny because the only proof there is are your deluded fan fictions.
Every single piece of ‘evidence’ posted here hasn’t proved anything, it is circumstantial. Yes you could speculate, and we have, but no you have to go further to say it’s all true.
You can believe what you like but please stop fighting with others when there is no concrete evidence of their relationship.
There is plenty of concrete evidence. Even if no one can say for sure they are dating literally all signs are pointing towards it being true. I’m genuinely baffled that some
people can’t seem to put two and two together lmfao but whatever if you don’t want to believe it’s all good.

Yes this is what his old apartment looked like. Different light, different wall design.
It’s not only Chris’s ex that has said .
On the same podcast Chris said that his Japanese friends give him some slack for not dating Japanese women.

Here are all their matching mugs and cups. For those who say it’s just ikea cup and it means nothing. I can see having one matching cup but three separate individual cups, what are the chances? Lol

Better pics of Sharla’s slipper migrating to chris office lol
Those are not the same chair, the armrests are different shapes.
And many people have a mac. By that logic, Sharla and Chris live at my place
(jk, I don't own a Lomonosov cup)
are these from two different videos? If so, that is not just the same projector. That is the same shelf, drawer, and candle, and owl or cat or totoro cup underneath it
That would, for once actually be persuasive if it showed up in each of their videos as part of their apartment
File: 1654787637667.jpg (90.76 KB, 578x558, IMG_20220609_101031.jpg)
I saw this and I remembered this.
I find odd Chris to buy stuff like that too.
Just checked her video she says it's a super Mario collection that is normally out of stock yeah even more hard for someone like him to hunt down merch like that.
But unfortunately there can be an easy reason of why Chris have them,the slippers could have been too big for her so she give them to Chris as a gift.
Currently it would be more weird if they are not dating.
The guess is around 2.5+years at least.
Ikr?The UK trip solidified the idea of them dating for me,well at least more in this side than 100% sure.
Chris silly attemps of not acknowledging her presence is so hilarious.
She had a massive thyroid tumour that had to be surgically removed. She’s got a scar on her neck. Not something that could be confused with pregnancy. She posted a full video about it.
I think the tumour is what prompted her to make the move to Sendai which all came about not long after the second apartment thing. All of a sudden she moved, then next thing we saw she was back from having surgery in Florida and recovery in Canada. Sendai is a much bigger city, and she has friends there, while her friend Mark had left Morioka.
Suddenly dealing with all the health issues would make her want to be close to friends and her boyfriend, and not be isolated. Also more convenient to get to Tokyo from Sendai for work with TC etc.
Yeah I missed where she said that she had been in the new place 5 days when she found out. She said on that video posted Oct 21 that she’d been dealing with it for the “last three months” and the video mentioning the move was July 2, got the apartment was July 13, so I thought the diagnosis preceded the move. That was a fast move, then!
Sendai is way more convenient for her and for Chris, who had been living there for years. Also yes the studio which is not only great in it’s own right, but gives him a place to film that is not home where signs of Sharla are everywhere.
The mugs from “her apartment” appearing in his videos in front of that bookshelf that he’s had for years and done so many livestreams in front of is crystal clear evidence.
I feel like at this point either they are a couple or Chris needs a restraining order because Sharla is stalking him across the world even to Kent.
In all seriousness though I'm not surprised they're dating Chris and her have great chemistry and he mentioned she was one of the first people he found when he was looking for videos about Japan. It's not even really drama other than their sloppy attempts at hiding it. They probably are among the few people that can relate with their unique lifestyles of western white Jvloggers with millions of subs but don't particularly like anime.
The only red flag in all this is Chris' health and weight seem to be fast on a bad slope. I think this is more being stuck away from his family than Sharla though.
Maybe he's sure with Sharla so he no longer cares about his physique?
Like : "I no longer have to make an effort".
Some people do that when the relationship matures.

Another breadcrumb, Was the case of Chris office set up. We are all used to Chris’s old office set up with the bookshelf in the back of him, but since July 2021 set up has change. A mirror popped up and the room seemed more cramped. Do you know what happens since July 2021? LOL That move from morioka really revealed a lot!

And the biggest breadcrumb of all since the move, is the case of the window ledge. Noticed his old office set up, no window ledge, but all of the sudden after July 2021 his office grew a mysterious ledge. Do you know have ledges in all their windows from their apartment to her video?
Oh the recent twitter post,by his words it seems he has indeed killed his stress.
Will it be the year he makes progress in his film dream? Welp
Photo most likely taken Sharla kek
He needs to study and keep up with updates in the genre which he apparently doesn't do.
Frankly he seems like an early aficionado despite all his talk and shit.
Who says he aims that high?I only heard him saying that he wishes to do a short film.
Not that is bad him wanting to go beyond but I think that if he wants that he should make his channel grow more so the the extra cash can tank his dream expenses.
They're not wrong. It wasn't a couple of words. She mostly spoke in broken Japanese and wasn't talking about anything advanced. The Japanese guy also simplified his language for her.>>218794
No, it's not good at all for someone who works as a translator/interpreter and she struggled with basic polite speech and grammar. Sorry, but just taking Japanese in hs doesn't mean you can accurately gauge how well someone can speak Japanese. It's very obvious Sharla doesn't speak it that often despite living in Japan. and I hope you're not assuming she can read well just because she can read signs and basic food labels at the conbini.>>218797>Her Japanese is actually great compared to other jvloggers. She’s also not afraid of showing her flaws.
It's not at all compared to other Jvloggers who've gone to uni or grad school in Japan and who work in translation. Try Kemushi.
Nice I didn't know this.
Guess he's not aiming too high so it's ok.
I'm half Japanese and her Japanese is fine. I struggle with Keigo too because I grew up in the US with just a Japanese dad.
She reads many things and clearly knows the readings of a lot of kanji.
didn't she go to uni in Japan?

And now the video got privated.
Here it's the link to it if you want to check the status of it ,either of two or a friend pays attention to here a lot lmao.
He could have simply edited the parts out, that's doable even if old video.
Y'all really make him panic kek
Thinking the same…
Besides what anon shown, was there something more revealing in the video? If not why no ignore it like any previous similitudes we have found.>>219028
Panic moment at its finest.

Wow! now I'm sure why we no longer see Chris doing collabs with Norm(before Norm travel) he checks this place and knows the evidence of the Norm trash behavior.
Simply a shame ,seeing Chris chill with the piece of shit that is Norm was cool.It exposed Chris real colors that he in fact doesn't care if shitty people are linked to his channel.
Honestly it's really weird how much effort he is taking to cover it up. If they revealed it nobody would really care that much. The hardcore people already know and neither of their fanbases is based on using them as a relationship stand in like a lot of twitch streamers or even Conner to an extent. They're making it worst by acting so weird about it. Also after 2-3 years it's actually a serious relationship. It's not like Garnt or Joey or even PewDiePie had to deal with much hate because they dated other YouTubers. >>219007
His weight has never been huge by Western standards but sudden weight gain and a lot of how he's seemed lately isn't a good sign. There's lots of big guys and girls who seem healthier even if they're obese. As someone about his age it's not like being in your 20s you actually have to have some conscious health decisions as a key part of your lifestyle not just as a big event to lose 50lbs once or whatever. It'll come back.
The longer they are together the harder it gets for them.
The more time it passes the more you accept the material things of your partner as yours so it's obvious that you will fail from time to time to differentiate what's yours.
What we have found out it's with them being careful even kek
At this point it is silly to keep hiding it like unnecessary stress for both.

Another thing to take note of. You’ll notice in her Sendai apartment tour she showed her bean bag for when she uses her projector. she carefully curated it to only show 1 beanbag. But in previous videos you’ll see she has two beanbags, a blue one and a gray one. Sharla Think she’s slick by removing the one beanbag from the apartment tour video, so no one would ask, why do you have 2 beanbags if you live by yourself? This goes hand in hand as to why a person living alone needs a 3 bedroom apartment. The mysterious 3rd bedroom that she couldn’t show because it was full of garbage! Honestly the cover up is comical at this point but not as comical as the deniers
That was at the restaurant where she said she and Natsuki were going to "meet up with Chris" even though his voice had just been heard in the apartment.
She also literally deleted comments mentioning that they heard Chris voice, why wouldn't she just say that they all hung out at her place?
It was a fair comparison by that anon,we all can see the face similarities.
The other anon who had weird ideas about it…yikes.>>219056
The point is that Sharla says they will meet Chris later meanwhile she hangs out with natsuki yet we hear him in the background xD
Now that you mention $$$.Not to undermine Sharla but i'm feeling Chris played a monetary role in her buying that house in Tokyo.
It would explain how Chris described love as "expensive" kek.
File: 1654823569465.jpg (517.16 KB, 1080x1732, IMG_20220609_200835.jpg)
It obvious Natsuki plays along with their lies but I can't stop thinking how low both of them are to use Natsuki this way.
Apparently there's a future video of Chris talking Japanese with Sharla joined by Natsuki.
Due needing a lot of traslation is being postponed for a later date.
(Or a lot of editing to not catch their lying asses kek)
I think this picture(April 14) is related to that video it fits with the time Chris said it was recorded….again Natsuki being used and probably paid.
When you put it like that it shows how Chris is kinda trash:
Hang outs with Norm knowing how shit he is and uses Natsuki as coverage.
Sharla too obviously,so they are indeed made for each other.
The only reason I can think of is that he has videos and more in which he comes out as a single guy.
So saying they have been dating since morioka will expose his ass.
He can keep his privacy obviously but well it doesn't gonna erase that he made profit of the lies.
Revealing that they have been dating since months ago helps him.
I'm more happy than ever to have changed my likings.I used to watch his videos a lot but idk his persona tended to have weird moments I thought it was his build up stress but seems like one can't totally cover ones true self.
Don't care about who he sleeps with but that Natsuki and Norm points,yikes.
There's one with Norm visiting his ramen shop.
The rest of collabs are in Norm channel only.
Oh mostly due selling natsuki as kind soul,one of Chris old time friends that he still hangs out with him.
Who knows how many times Natsuki being present was only as distraction rather I call him because my friend.
Yes my fault due believing such cliche stuff but still
Who knows how many times Natsuki was just a pawn when Chris and Sharla recorded together,his presence only to cover things up.
He probably got paid true so it was his decision too but it's still bittersweet looking at those videos now.
Frankly a bit silly both thinking they'll able to control everything the viewer sees.
The intentions are valid
because it's their privacy but man they think too high of their intellect kek

Never thought I would say this but PewDiePie is really giving away original Jvlogger vibes.
Peaceful,interesting and mildly fun videos.
I know he knows him the longest anon I've heard the stories and also watched natsuki the movie.
My conclusion of them using them was due that video of Sharla lying of Chris presence in her video.
Natsuki was the tool here and I know Chris pays him.
I gotta mention of Chris has been complaining a lot about Natsuki lately too just the livestreams.
Maybe here it can be just my view due Natsuki being quite kind for me but don't gonna allow to compare it Norm .
Any person that calls Norm friend is by default at some level trash,Sharla and Chris equally.
"I'm careful with the people who are linked to abroadinjapan" says Chris pfff such BS.
Yeah my Natsuki point migth be personally odd but don't question my view of Norm.
Why would be immature tho?
It's clear how different is viewed the videos of Chris and Sharla together than the ones where Natsuki is included.
Derailing the viewer is a perfect way to avoid comments of "those two are definitely together".
It's not new friends helping cover up stuff online anon jeez.
Everyone agrees that Norm is a piece of garbage, and I’m equally as confused as to why both Sharla and Chris refuse to see it. They both have been lying about Their relationship for three years now. The deception about their relationship has nothing to do with Natsuki, because they hide it with or without him. I mean look at this trip to the UK, it’s clear that they are together but they hide it. I mean, they use all their friends to hide their relationship, Natsuki, Aki, Norm, Emma, both Pete’s, all the trash taste people, etc. all know that they are in a relationship but keep it a secret. And lastly Chris complains about everybody, looks how much fun he makes of Connor, but he loves Natsuki very much it’s clear to see, Even Sharla has commented how Chris always makes sure to take care of Natsuki and that their relationship is sweet.
It’s immature because you are not capable of seeing things as a nuance. Life is not this or that, it’s layered, it’s gray. You conclude that Natsuki is only in the videos to divert people, or to avoid shipping comments. Whereas the totality of it is, Chris behavior hasn’t changed at all, he was hanging Natsuki before his relationship with Sharla and continues to do so. Most of the video featuring Natsuki on Chris’ Channel doesn’t include Sharla. In fact Chris Hardly put Sharla and his videos. Sharla, unlike Chris does the day in the life style vloggs, and naturally if she goes to visit a mutual friend of hers and Chris and needs a driver, Chris is the logical choice, since they live together. It’s something like “I’m shooting a video I want to feature Natsuki, but Chris is going to be there cause I need him to drive me and he’s also Natsuki friend, so he will be in the video too. Vice versus if Natsuki visits. So to conclude that she or he are only putting Natsuki in the videos so they can hide the relationship is silly.
Jeez the Connor stuff is banter, Chris have said how shooting with natsuki has become a chore due him escaping to smoke cigs.
Was asked if he will travel with natsuki(livestream) and he said that such would be hard due how behaves (I guess it's the cig addiction).
Jeez cut me the happy vibes of them.
I have no reason to see it as impossible both using him from time to time for cover up.
The moment it was revealed Norm true colors I lost faith in the morale of C or S.
It's not that they are blind to Norm it's that they approve of him being over the top hateful to even mild criticism. I've seen Chris get pretty ranty about criticism before when someone commented not to be over the top or disrespectful when he tried some regional insect dish and acted like he ate poop. A lot of youtubers wish they could attack critics like Norm does. Chris is one who is self aware enough to not do it but doesn't like critiques on his videos or behavior. >>219111
PewDiePie is the most surprising YouTuber to me. I remember when he was always in the news for some controversy relating to being edgy online. Now he's one of the few I consider to have genuinely matured and unlike so many didn't morph into a delusional creature who is out of touch with reality or humility. I wonder what kind of content will he do down the line. More book reviews (he loves Japanese literature)? Or just comfy Jvlogs?
Probably hidden, not deleted>>218877
Not even that is milky. Especially when it's anons tinfoiling and nothing really about them together, ever.
Pewds has matured a lot and his content as well, apparently he is no longer following a schedule just doing whatever pops up and feels like recording.
In his past video he mentions how having so few people recognizing him makes being himself so easy.
I feel we need a imagur or something with all the photos of Norm answers to his viewers.
I think there's a lot of screenshots here.
Being still friends and collabing with such character is a stain for hi brand honestly.
Was his camera man right? Imagine patreons knowing they payed Norm lmao
I don't think Chris should be held accountable but I guess most focus on how Chris tends to say how he's really careful of who works with him or who appear in his channel.
Which “job” are you referring to because she still translates and interprets for work? She didn’t forget one or two words. The subs fixed her grammar, completed her sentences, added words she couldn't say, made her sound more mature and polite than she was. She often trailed off and waited for the man to finish or clarify what she was trying to say because she didn’t know how to say it. Your speaking skills will suffer if you stop using them, but not that much for a basic convo, and it’s not like she’s been living outside Japan. People have complaining about her broken Japanese pre-Korea.>>219010
I don't understand why you keep talking about kanji and keigo skills because she wasn't using 尊敬語・謙譲語, she was struggling with basic desu/masu the entire time and 登録済み is elementary school level kanji. I know because I went to Japanese elementary school. Guess what? You’re not the only Japanese person here. Sharla did go to university in Japan. Her Japanese isn’t fine for someone who did even if her classes were in English.
Sharla doing interpretation or translations is way in the past.
Even in those movie jobs she got she was the assistant of the English coach for actors.
Nothing to do with Japan being sacred. It's just immature to go somewhere, eat their food for the sole purpose of mocking it for the camera and acting up how it was the worst thing ever like it's Fear Factor. There's food travel channels like Best Ever Food Review Show where they try a greater variety of things and you'd never see that kind of behavior on even the "weirder" things. Chris was just out to find something that's a novelty to mock as weird and was clearly acting up his reaction. It was very unnecessary. Going out of your way to waste or insult food is just something that rubs a lot of people the wrong way. I'd feel the same way if some Japanese YouTuber who did the same for jellied eels just to get a YouTube reaction.
If Chris thought he could get away with it without damaging his brand he definitely would be more like Norm. He doesn't like criticism and likes control.
This, I mean she forgot how to say ladder ?? and her pronunciation at some points is very weird.
Also yes, a part of it involves a very specific vocabulary for renovation but isn't it why Ushka is doing business her? I think she's making most of the work, money and project-wise, and asked Sharla for help in translation and if she had experience in the renovation field, which Sharla easily exaggerated (10 years that don't add up) and couldn't be bothered less to look up words she knew she needed to ask about beforehand.
I also watched the video and she uses literally zero keigo. The renovator guy also uses no keigo and speaks very clearly and slowly. He also does his best to guess what Sharla is saying. I'm kind of wondering whether he started out using keigo and then just dropped it kek
I mean her awful Japanese is even obvious when you don't speak the languag imo by how often she has to use gestures to explain herself.
Yeah people saying they would struggle to talk about home renovations in their native language are being ridiculous, “add a ladder here” and “make this part flat please” aren’t rocket science conversations, but the staff had to say these things for her after she trailed off.
Her accent is also odd, but it’s just because she speaks in the same rhythm/tone she does in English, which makes things sound drawled
I honestly am soooo bored with you Japanese language gatekeepers. I know people who after over 40 years of living in the USA, still struggle with their English grammar, finding the correct words, and pronunciation. I would never dream of criticizing them. We gave them grace, because we know learning a new language, is hard, and often it’s hard to get rid of accents or speak the new language perfectly, no matter how long they have lived in the new country. But you Japanese language gatekeepers always going on boards and YouTube comments, with the “he pronounce that word wrong, his grandma is terrible,” and y’all all time favorite “they didn’t use Keigo.” Lol stop, just stop. They are not Japanese, they will never speak Japanese perfectly. Who cares! Yes they live in Japan, but do they know enough Japanese to live their lives and not be a burden to the Japanese government or people? Yes! The rest I don’t care about, I don’t want to hear about grammar, or Keigo, or all the other nonsense, you Japan Gatekeepers get off on.
They don't "use" Natsuki as cover up. Natsuki is a fan favorite. And he gets compensated for his time.
Chris made an entire movie-length documentary on the man. Is that a cover-up too?
Norm is very likely super nice to their face, so they might just not know/ignore that he's garbage to other people.
As to them using all their friends to hide their relationship. It's not that hard. It's not like people constantly talk about others' relationships. It's not the secret service.
Have none of you ever been in a relationship that you didn't need everyone to know about but a few friends knew? Was that a big deal to those friends?
i find it fascinating that we've not seen marzia's face on camera once… hmmm… i wonder if she got some work done and doesn't want the internet commenting on it.
i am enjoying the vlogs though. they're probably boring to some people because felix doesnt do anything except go shopping. i laughed when he said he "doesn't ever buy things" in this vlog because that's all hes done on camera since arriving in japan.
Her accent is really quite strong. Compared to people like Loretta (on Kemushi chan), it's worlds of difference. But she's not atrocious. She doesn't use Keigo but that's not as big of a deal. Come on.
Also, all people, all over the world, use gestures in communication. In some cultures more than in others.
And the builder was likely speaking slower due to Ushka's presence?
As someone doing home renovations in English, which is my native language, that's pretty much how I sound. Looking at AD spreads doesn't make me an expert on crap like vinyl rigid and floating panels and all that.
I literally also had to fumble for the word "ladder" the other day and only got there through "step ladder" because my mind just went to "steps".
Not saying Sharla is perfect, just saying, being out of your comfort zone is hard.

Darling, where Chris goes she will also be, lol. Like I said yesterday, they’re both in Cornwall UK. The tour of the UK continuous but don’t they are just friends and this is just a coincidence.
Lol I never said anything was sacred or to deport him. I said two things.
1. He was really upset about that criticism.
2. To a lot of people it might rub them the wrong way when people do things like that and playing up the negative reaction. Especially with animal products. Though I will admit this maybe be a cultural thing. Where I'm from disrespecting or wasting food is seen as incredibly rude and with that said I'm sure I do things that would be seen as rude in other cultures.
I think Chris is a good guy overall but some YouTube trends are immature. You shouldn't be going out to mock other's cuisine at least with non constructive criticism. Norm is the extreme end of can't take criticism but Chris dabbles in it too. Youtubers in general aren't good with criticism because of the way the fame bubble works. But facing criticism with an open mind is important.
Norm was doing that project of learning how to fly a plane.
In general it's been a while since he worked with Chris.>>219203
Is not possibly they do or at minimum have friends lurking here.
Chris taking action against the video in 12 hours or so was a solid proof.
Knowing the room pretty well is necessary so it's most likely one of the two.
Well a close friend would know too I guess.
That also explains how emotional and defensive someone >>219219
>>219227 here gets whenever Chris and Sharla are critiqued about their actual professions.>>219227
You're like the anon who won't stop saying saying Chris and Sharla aren't dating, prompting everyone else to post more proof. I wasn't even the anon who brought up Sharla's Japanese in the video, but only came in because you "fans" kept insisting she speaks well for someone like her and just forgot a couple of words.>>219235
Nope, it was for Sharla. He had to finish her sentences for her because she couldn't speak. Couldn't even say "lower" and "please." She added them in the subs.
Last year or the year before, Sharla was telling people that they can get translation/interpretation jobs like her if they can become fluent in Japanese. If your interpreter couldn't even say "make it lower," you'd be demanding your money back.
Forgot to add that Sharla and Kim Dao once complained that a group of Japanese women were saying racist things about them while they were vlogging at a cafe, when the women were complaining about their co-worker and didn't say anything racist. Kim eventually deleted the vlog as more and more people pointed that she and Sharla didn't understand what they heard.
This site was also mentioned on the AiJ subreddit >>197615
So I wouldn't be surprised if either of them had been lurking and maybe posting here recently.
File: 1654886680120.png (1.11 MB, 1283x820, cornwall.png)
Who said Chris is in Cornwall too? Yep, totally not dating.
With yesterday Chris mistake it's already a given that they are dating.
But ngl it's fun seeing their attempts of trying to fool people.
Yeah and it was a long video of 400k+ views so he's definitely into hiding the relationship.
For his second channel that's a good amount of views yet he didn't care so we know what is his priority.
They might as well come out with it, I highly doubt anyone would care
But that was a panic move for sure and probably one he regrets now because it probably confirms 1) they or someone close to them lurk here and 2) they lived together in Morioka for years and then moved to Sendai together. All of his sit-down videos and livestreams were probably filmed in that room with the sliding doors.
This is a lot worse than I remembered. Sharla just made up shit and all three were so smug.
“She said, ‘Those people don’t fit in Japan. I can’t fucking stand them.’” Lady didn't say any of that or anything that could be misinterpreted that way.
I’m the opposite; this is the most interesting jvlogger gossip in a long time. What else is going on? Nothing. The glory days of good jvlogger gossip are long gone.
The fact that they are desperate to hide the alleged relationship by deleting comments and deleting 400k videos is mind boggling to me and it’s what makes the whole thing interesting. No one would care if they said “hey, we’re dating!” I don’t think either of them have obsessive fans who need them to be single nor do they have crazy shippers. I think people would just support them and not care about the details of their relationship.
Of course they’re entitled to their private lives but If the rumours are true they have been together for 3 years. That’s a long time to hide a relationship and it must kind of suck to be so secretive all the time. But it’s their choice.
The speculation regarding the potential split between Aki and Joey is far more entertaining, since there's more to lose there. If Chris and Sharla are a thing, there's not really much dirt to dig up between them. Chris is fat, Sharla's annoying, they'd make a very average couple. If the tension is what's got everyone so invested and on the chase, I can't help feeling like it leads to nothing. As much as i'd like for them to confirm that they are or aren't outright, that's unlikely, but I would like some more conclusive evidence rather than circumstantial. As it is now, it's simply not convincing or interesting enough for me to invest much attention in, but you do you.>>219343
If you're implying that i'm either of them or someone close to them, sorry to disappoint you, i'm simply a person who can't stand liars or those who force milk when it isn't really there. It should flow freely.
Same. So sad if he’s the one insisting and she actually would want to be open.
I don’t think either of their audiences rely on them being perceived as available. Although obviously they both have fans who find them attractive. I think Sharla’s audience is probably mostly women. Chris’s more just people who are interested in Japan and travel.
Yeah sorry anon I’m not that poster either but you’re not gonna get much out of the mods cause I equally report and moan in meta about the tinfoiling fan fiction.>>219342
At first (many moons/threads ago) it was just speculation. I was happy to tinfoil myself but it just didn’t seem like they were. I believed they were really good friends.
During the shit storm we get several people saying they’ve seen x y z but they don’t post anything to prove what they say. Also I feel tkyosam is in this thread, or at least someone who knows them. Someone does push the narrative.
Then people from Reddit show up, then anyone who asks for proof gets ridiculed, then the fan fictions starts.
Now some new screenshots have been uploaded that I will say that if they had been 3 threads ago the discussion would be more productive. Even though I don’t believe they are in a relationship, I appreciate the new screen caps because some of them do make me think differently.
As a ‘denier’ I only want to see what people speculate, I just get annoyed with the ‘trust me sis’ posts. This is an imageboard!
Because they want the validation or something.>>219305> Chris never makes the same kind of hints. Maybe he is the one who desperately wants to keep this relationship or whatever it is hidden
This is such a crazy assumption. At this point, they are not hiding it. They are not openly saying that they are together but also not hiding
whatever it is that they're doing. When two adults are in a relationship, they usually make this sort of decision together. She wouldn't post her location, which is the same as Chris's without him being ok with that.>>219332
This! They can do or not do whatever they want together without making it part of their videos. they are not hiding anything. They are just choosing not to talk about it (yet, or maybe at all)
>>219337> Of course they’re entitled to their private lives but If the rumours are true they have been together for 3 years. That’s a long time to hide a relationship and it must kind of suck to be so secretive all the time. But it’s their choice.
Are you seriously naive and childish enough to believe that Youtube is their whole life? They are not constantly hiding something. They don't have paparazzi following them and they don't have to crawl into each other's houses through backdoors and freight elevators… They just make their videos about other stuff.
>>219346> Chris is fat
Whenever I read one of you whiners call him fat, I imagine a Tkyosam sized blob furiously typing away all night.
Chris is not as fit as he could or should be but like stop pretending like this slightly chubby man is obese.
I get that you're all Weebs who think people look like anime characters but the pandemic isolation is over, you can go outside and see real people again.
Na they are careful outside,pandemic has allowed a chill relationship when going out.
Now all is opening is easy to see how they are easy to spot.
Like two twitter users mention seeing them together one in a museum and the other in a shop(UK).
You are really dumb if you think control freak Chris is no wary of not looking like a couple if a lot of people is around.
Hi I am the same uk anon who is not tkyoham or a person who wants his dick in my vagina.
I agree with you wholeheartedly.
I don't think he's hot (his friend CDawg, on the other hand, though…) just not fat
By the recent livestream of cdawgva I will say that if he's not careful he's close to enter into a bad territory.
Not exactly due the looks but because once the skin is stretched due overweight it's no longer the same unless you get surgery.
what the fuck? He'd have to lose like 100 pounds to have loose skin issues.
Do you have any
idea about how human bodies work?
You are reaching, anon.
He's not morbidly obese and for people who are just like 30 or so pounds overweight, if you lose weight while also doing something to build up muscle, skin is never an issue.
You are either a massive troll or a confused 13 year old.
Didn't she want to show is face, isn't that why she did that nail reveal?
I don't think Sharla is all that private with her relationships, even though we didn't really see her ex's face, we still saw plenty of their relationship like how they talked to each other etc.
Chris on the other hand didn't mention or show shit when he was with Lily, just that now-privated date video and that was at the very beginning of their relationship I think.
Now Chris is out here panicky deleting over one year old videos showing him livestreaming in Sharla's apartment, while Sharla is not shying away from showing on social media that she spent days being all over Kent where Chris is from, she replied to accounts that talked about seeing her at the podcast event (as far as I know Chris didn't like or reply the tweets at @ Sharla) and now she posts photos from Cornwall where a day earlier Chris posted a photo that looks very much like it was taken in Cornwall.
I could be wrong, but it's feels like Chris is a lot more keen keeping their relationship or whatever it is under wraps, while Sharla has more of an 'idgaf if you guys know we're together' kind of attitude.
You’re quick to lol at that anon but what they are saying is equally as speculative as what you say.
Until Sharla and Chris prove otherwise there is as much ‘proof’ to say that they are not in a relationship as there is for it.
He's 32, ffs!
Also, you can be way older and your skin will still bounce back from like 30 or even 50 pounds weight loss. I'm a personal trainer and work with enough older people (to you that might mean they're 30 but I mean like in their 50s and 60s)
It's not the tinfoil, it's a lack of normal human relationships. These are all either people who have known only toxic
relationships (one partner controls the other, everybody cheats and that's the only reason to leave someone, one is crazy, etc. etc.) or very young teens, who shouldn't be here
Screenshots? Why would she lie for over a year, and tweet and make videos about "my fiance"? Why would it matter if he was actually her husband and why didn't she hide her rings? That whole situation is just weird.>Meeting my Online Friend After 10 YEARS!!!
She's been friends with Norm since she was 19.

So as you can see in the past even though there was clear evidence that she was one engaged she would lie and hide her relationship. Just as she’s doing now. Picture on the left was from April 2015 she was already engage picture on the right was from May 2016 she was already married. You noticed a change of rings. She’s wearing both a wedding band and an engagement ring.
File: 1655003551212.jpeg (1.1 MB, 1284x1784, 56121EF3-9D3C-4CFC-93A0-A9131D…)
Again she is very misleading to her audience because in her I’m getting married now privated video she has a Wedding band ring on. Lol . And then you never notice her mention when she actually got married, she just started calling him her husband all of the sudden in 2017.
File: 1655006717427.jpeg (805.24 KB, 1188x821, 0CC9C7D1-EF0F-459B-AE56-BB6DBB…)
I imagine her doing the “how it started and how it’s going”. By posting this picture of the first time they met, and the engagement pic. She is uncreative like that Lol
I'm actually really surprised at how handsome Chris was back then. He looks like a totally different person here.
Sharla more or less is like a vampire and barely has aged or changed. Chris shouldn't be so secretive about her. Just enjoy life.
Eventually one will notice the ring marks on either of two so it's not an issue.
Unless they decide that no rings which would be too extreme and bonkers…like grow up.>>219561
The continuation and increase of his bad habits killed that level of attractiveness.
Most English guys hotness goes downhill after 26 I think due the habits they are well known for,the ones who are careful exercise so they can maintain their good looks.
At least Chris dropped smoking long ago otherwise he would be more fucked up.
Thank you. Have anything earlier than May 2016? She was already calling him her fiance on twitter in March that year and he was spotted in her videos before the engagement announcement. Still, that means she lied for 1+ year, but for what purpose? If she didn't want people to know she was engaged or married, why say anything, why film with him around, and why show off her rings? IDK what that is, but it's not quite the same as being private.
At least she hasn't lied about Chris so far.
Junk food and low or zero exercise plus drinking it's such a terrible combo.
Even with low exercise one can lose weight as long as one eats properly.I would bash him for not knowing how to cook but gosh I've seen 40yo+ people who doesn't know either.>>219573
I do remember him saying that the doctor said something about him needing to take pills in the future if he doesn't change.
It is indeed a bad situation.
What if he doesn't care much due having a partner already?
Some guys do that.
(Well unless they are into fitness since the beginning)
Keep in mind that people tend to become more private as they get older. The fact that she shared quite a lot of details about her last relationship doesn’t necessarily mean she wants to do the same now (but Chris doesn’t let her - what a twat, right?).
My observation is that she’s way more mature now compared to her “Korean” self. So no wonder she’s not blabbing about her current relationship (if it exists).

Yes, this the first time I can find a video with the ring. APRIL 2015 , long before she announced her engagement.

They both lie all the time. One example sharla’s crazy explanation for the 3rd bedroom during her apartment tour. I’ll give you another example, these picture is his first live member livestream that Chris did after they move to Sendai, in July of last year. Read the caption and his lame explanation as to why the room looks different! Lol
oh my. what a coincidence that the backdrop in his apartment changes just as Sharla moves apartments! almost as if they moved from Morioka together?!
Is he sitting in the rubbish room Sharla showed? Because that explanation was very weird and that giant ass sheet she put up was also strange.
