Poor girl, looks like her YouTube channel is already being spammed by creepy fanboys... Confused

Oh no, seriously?
I saw a couple of her videos not too long ago and found myself annoyed at the fact that she wasn't very good at the dances. Her "I'm so cute, look at me dance" attitude and Hot Topic poster child clothing are an irritant as well. Gah.

I wasn't gonna say it quite like that but I kinda feel the same way. I looked at one of the videos for a dance I'm quite familiar with, and it was all wrong. Too stiff, too rushed, and she doesn't even smile. Oh well, she's young and cute so that's all they care about!

I foresee a disaster in her life.
I say she should've taken some dancing lessons first. Her face might be a bit cute, but cute faces won't get many fans entertained for too long... or will it? Who knows. Britney Spears is a fine living example.

Says on one of her videos that she's done ballet for 10 years.
I'm actually tempted to get the video just because she's British.

I don't know if I should feel sorry for her that this is happening or something else. I mean youtube stars don't get you anywhere in life. Being popular on the internet has no effect on real life >.> (or maybe it does?)

10 years wasted if she decides to go down that path.
But I took ballet into consideration, but for her style I doubt ballet is gonna help at all.

Meh. Reminds me of the gaggle of little girls that occupied the second floor escalator at the con I just went to and spent the ENTIRE afternoon doing that Hare Hare Yukai thing and other line dances that I guess girls that age think are cute. [SHUDDERS] Looks about as clumsy too. :\

While she does have a cute face, I don't understand the trend of shipping so-called "youtube stars" over to Japan to entertain otaku.

Wow you lot sound like such lovely people. When did this place manage to get so stuck up it's own orifice that it feels the need to make petty (bordering jealous) remarks about a 14 year old school girl's little bit of success?

People moan when anime fans get treated like crap from people who don't know anything about it... but if you treat your own like that then I can sort of see why. Man we deserve everything we get don't we?

Thanks, ANN. Way to make me feel creepy by watching a 14 year old girl dancing...

Also, you go Killtheshrew. Internet folk need some civility, if not actual supportiveness

There is something to say about the creepiness of all this but I'm not going to say her dancing sucks. Either way she profits.

Thanks for the remark. Commenting about youtube and all that crap was always something to avoid. But this time it was about anime and I got a little carried.
Usually I'd just say "that's your life, mess with it as much as you want".
But I still don't understand what's so jealous about badmouthing something so ridiculous. Well, that's your brain, god knows how it works.

Her videos are kind of silly, but she's just having fun. I think her appeal must be that the fact that it's not that polished is a little charming, albeit kind of in a dejikko loli-ish way.
