Jet lag and 4 hour sleep nights all weekend killed me, I slept until 6pm EST. Anyway here's my haul of stuff from AX/LA. We don't have Daiso in Canada so I was insanely excited to go there. Some of the jewelry/socks/sanrio stuff is gifts for friends. I actually ended up buying stuff from local TO artists (the hat is 1%Talent and the frog patch/washi tape are punimelt).

I hear ya. Only the time change saved me from a 26 hour day between Sunday and Monday morning when I got home.

I don't remember the exact prices of everything after taxes and fees so estimated the before prices. AA was much higher this time around because I bought a couple pieces of clothing. Had a blast though and I'm looking forward to next year!

hotel: $1440
transportation: $600
badge: $450
3 concert tickets: $450
4 pen lights: $140
AA: $525
food: $260
= about $4k before fees and etc.

I really wish more people would be a lot more aware of their hygiene. Next year I'm bringing mints and am going to bully the fuckers with shit breath sitting next to me into eating them.

>>
>>9939220
yeah, like i'm really gonna take unsolicited mints from some insistent angry fucker
>>
>>9939227
You won't have to if you just brush your fucking teeth. I would hope most people would accept the mints after being told "I'm sorry, but your breath is awful, please take one"
>>
>>9938976
Oh wow you got a drawing of mai husbando from Waka

>>9939246
>"This panel lasts at minimum an hour, and I'm sorry but your breath is awful and I do not want to smell it the whole time. Please take a mint"
>"WOAH DUDE YOU'RE FUCKING INSUFFERABLE!"
If you do not bathe or brush your teeth it is your own fault when someone tells you that you smell. Just because you cannot fathom the importance of hygiene does not mean I will put up with you smelling awful.

Want to avoid this conversation? Just bathe and brush your teeth. It's that simple
>>
>>9939246
Just brush your teeth, autismo
>>
>>9939248
i'm just imagining you running up to people telling them their shit smells and pushing mints in their face and getting laughed at
>>
>>9939254
Sounds like I really struck a never here. We aren't talking about me "running up to people", we're talking about the people sitting next to me having awful breath, and how next time if it happens I plan to pull out a case of mints and politely tell them to have one because their breath is bad.

Honestly if the idea of this happening is so upsetting to you, just brush your fucking teeth
>>
>>9939257
you could have any power fantasy in the world and you choose to imagine yourself grandstanding about people's breath at an anime convention
just how pathetic is your life, really?
>>
>>9939261
I'm not pathetic because I understand that my breath will smell bad if I don't brush my teeth, so to avoid this I brush them. Why exactly do you think people should have to put up with your awful breath? An entire hour sitting next to someone who smells is unpleasant, and yet for some reason you're acting as if telling someone they smell and offering them a mint is worse than them refusing to bathe/brush their teeth before going out to a con
>>
>>9939265
I'm gonna eat some garlic ramen for lunch next year just for you.
>>
>>9939267
Jesus christ how old are you
>>
>>9939267
Fine by me. I'll simply either switch seats to avoid smelly autists like yourself, or grab a staffer and explain that you smell awful and are ruining other peoples good time, and have them boot you from the panel.
>>
>>9939271
jesus christ how old are you?
>>
Lol @ menz who think having proper hygiene is gay or ableism
>>
>>9939272
Old enough to know that smelly autists will never actually do anything about their stench unless you force them. You can avoid bathing and brushing your teeth all you want in your moms home, but once you go outside don't act shocked and offended when people complain and ask you to leave
>>9939273
We're not all autists who have some misguided assumptions that we have a right to smell like shit. Most of the smelly fucks I ran into at the con we're men, but there were a handful of girls as well, though most of them we're pretty big
>>
>>9939275
>Old enough to know that smelly autists will never actually do anything about their stench unless you force them.
So you're young. I'm guessing....22.

I actually think it'd be pretty funny if con staff started kicking people out for smelling too bad.
>>
>>9939284
I've seen some places make that a policy but never actually seen it enforced.
>>
I will be boycotting AX until Momokun is allowed to return!
>>
>>9939282
Wrong. You've never explained why you think you have a right to smell bad around others and make them put up with it. Go ahead, I'd love to hear your reasoning
>>9939284
>>9939285
Honestly they should start doing this. If someone reports you for smelling awful and staff agree that they do smell they should either be asked to leave and given permission to come back if they actually bathe and brush their teeth

> 110,000 fans of Japanese pop-culture descended upon the Los Angeles Convention Center this past week to experience Anime Expo (AX), the largest celebration of anime pop culture in North America. Produced by The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA), this five-day extravaganza, held July 4 – July 8, drew fans from more than 70 countries and had an estimated economic impact for the City of Los Angeles and area hotels and businesses of $100 million.

It's pretty nice, all cotton and fairly comfy. I think I should have gotten the medium instead of the large though, I'm 6' but not fat enough to make the large not be loose on me. Though I haven't washed it yet so maybe it'll fit better after that.

>>
>>9939394
I'm pretty sure I paid $70 on black friday for mine, and then had the processing fee and mailing fee as well, so it ended up being like $82.
If they do the same thing this year you might save like $10. It's up to you if you think that's worth it or not. I doubt they'll go back down to $60 like they used to do

what'll probably happen is that it'll be the same effective price as it is right now but the "normal" price will have gone up by then. not really saving anything but you don't have to pay them for a few months.

ANONS

Brush your teeth,floss thoroughly, and scrape your tongue every fucking day. Germs that cause bad breath just don't come from your teeth, they're on your tongue as well. A tongue scraper only costs $3 at the Target that's down the venue.

Fuck you Anon for trying to troll about bad breath

Depends on where you live. Major cities have the good crowds/local scenes for you to discuss whatever you want

But AX is a global gathering. So it’s just a bunch of anons that are alone in their small towns coming together to talk anime/vidya/whatever
>>
>>9939585
Everyone was too hot to fuck. Don't think there's gonna be any.
>>
>>9939621
I feel you on this. My friend and I were stuck in a growing line behind a Chii cosplayer who decided to hog the classroom set while her parents took shitty photos on their phone. Had to grab staff to tell them to hurry the fuck up.
>>
There was a former JAV at AX? Hopefully didn't screw people over like Yua Mikami leaving a panel after 15 minutes at Anime Matsuri
>>
>>9939756
she was a guest of jlist and made an appearance everyday for signings and photos
>>
First time going to AX, came from the UK for my first holiday in something like 6/7 years.
Despite a lotta drama w/ the group I went that exploded almost everyday and almost ruined everything, it was still pretty hecking good. Didn't get to flex my accent too much besides asking for photos, simply for the tism and got intimacy problems so seeing all that flesh on the 48'C (118F) day was extra nervewracking. Surprised that I was the one in the group, used to 60-68F weather back home, the only one who was actually enjoying and loving the weather out of my group of otherwise solely CA natives.

Bought a couple gundams, prints, a tabletop cardgame, Porco Rosso original artbook, Thunderbolt Gundam artbook 1, got some pins and charms and stuff from the group.
Gave me lots of knowledge on how to not fuck up next time, especially re: panel schedules, where to go, what to buy etc.

>>9939756
There was definitely JAV being played at the porngame booth. MAY have been JAV actresses at AX?
>>
>>9939539
I'm sorry but the Pantry is expensively delicious. Of course, there's a reason I limit it to one visit a year. I still have no idea how my friend was able to pack away an entire steak.
>>
>>9939761
>Porngame booth
Where was this?
>>
>>9939778
it was inside a black certain wall and on top hanging was a board that said 18+ content
>>
>>9939778
Around the back corner.
>>
>>9939295
>110,000 fans
Weird, it felt like more than that this year. Last year was 107,658.
>>
What was the cringiest thing you seen this year?
Mine was the Mega 64 QA section. First question was a guy asking Rocco if he can fuck his wife.
>>
>>9939801
The current theory is that is being so hot forced more people inside into the AC than usual thus making it seem way more crowded.
>>
That Akane (ZTD) cosplayer from the Zero Escape meetup was really cute. Wish I talked to her, haha.
>>
>>9939778
Back right of the exhibition hall, 18+ black curtain. Went on the 1st day and it wasn't too crowded, was planning to go back and check it out as well as doujins but the crowds were lined up all around the booths.
It was pretty funny, all the people I saw playing the VR porn game were women making awkward thrusts, trying their best to be as sensual as possible.

>>9939804
Fat latex bayonetta. So fat her latex suit had rolls (???????HOW??????)
Thot patrol cosplay as a pick up/game mechanism - Who wants to take photos with Thot Patrol? Thots.
The really stereotypical mega fat photographer with their belly hanging out, shirt stretched up, taking photos of girls in bikinis at the water feature.
>>
>>9939801
they're lying about attendence numbers, if they revealed actual numbers, the fire marshal would make them cap attendence
>>
>>9939805
I believe it

>>9939815
Nah, Anime Expo wouldn't like to us like that.
>>
>>9939815
If anything it seemed a little less crowded especially the south lobby. Fire marshal shut entry once because there were so many people there. Less ghosting now
>>
>>9939822
I agree, people can't ghost so so the actual number of people was smaller than last year. Like maybe last year they sold 107,000 barges but 40,000 people ghosted. While this year the sold 110,000 badges but 0 people ghosted
>>
so did someone actually die this con? or was that a rumor?

I saw some ambulance being called on the 3rd day next to the bus stops. Most likely some leaf with heat stroke.
>>
>only been 3 days and thread already dead
>>
>>9939925
That's because we can't go thirstin' anymore. Most of the chat wasn't even about the con, it was about getting laid or other stuff.
>>
>>9939928
Speaking of the con, what did other people think of the SSSS gridman premiere. I really liked it.
>>
>>9939931
i think so as well, but we'll have to wait and see if the entire series was worth the hype
>>
>>9939932
If it is I wanna cosplay as one of the characters, they're really cute.
>>
>>9939841

>>9939830
How was ghosting stopped?
>>
>>9939945
They actually had all the entrances blocked off and each badge had rfid and each entrance had scanners. Old badges were deactivated so if your scan failed they wouldn't let you in. Assuming that's what was meant by ghosting.
>>
>>9939931
It was fine. Probably won't watch rest of show. Liked the classroom realism
>>
>>9939945
Since you need a rfid badge it's more of a pain in the ass to badge swap and they are controlling entrances more. That last part actually sucks because they are forcing you to only enter and exit from a, handful of exits. You might be right next to what used to be an entrance/exit and they won't let you even go out. You have to walk all the way to an "actual" exit even if it was all the way across from where you wanted to go. Really annoying for some of the parking spots.
>>
>>9939963
If a scan failed you had to get a reset and they checked your id. There's ways around it as long as you have willing compatriots but you can't get in on your own anymore
>>
>>9939963
It’s still possible, just harder to ghost because of the scanners. I saw one guy walk in when staff wasn’t paying attention, coming in right behind a couple others. Also heard one staffer yelling at others how people managed to sneak in the day prior. Honestly dude sounded like he had a real stick up his ass with how he was telling them to keep their eyes on every person.
>>
>>9939969
>>9939975
I actually "snuck" in on preshow day and wandered around with no one but volunteers and whatnot inside the CC.
>>
or a while there was an entrance where there was no scanner and no security I think second floor west hall
>>
>>9939978
Yeah they had gaping holes day 1 but filled those in the next time I tried using them. I'm sure you can still find a few.

It's kind of a game for me. How to find your way in
>>
>>9940012
Yea, I always hide my badge under my shirt and see if I can get in for a little while too, it's fun.

SO who's getting san early start on their costumes for next year?

I think I'll try to figure out how to do a good Kaiji. I'd really love to do SamFlam if I could get a group of folks doing it. I know it won't get much recognition, but those 2 are in my top 10, maybe top 5.

Is it worth the price to stay at the JW for AX?
>>
>>9940237
is it worth being able to walk to AX?
yes: do it
no: don't do it
>>
>>9940237
Not sure what the cost even is but I'm gonna try for it next year. Being able to walk to the con, with some of it being downstairs, is worth it to me.

>>
>>9940487

>>
>>9940491
Thats the plan. Hopeing afterwards the big one comes and burns it all to the ground. Not that anyone would be able to tell the difference.
>>
Anyone have any complaints aside from the usual ones of people smelling or too many of one cosplay? Personally I can't stand how every fucking panel has someone who considers themselves a 'comedian' in the audience who feels the need to shout out their epic jokes that aren't even funny
>>
>>9940519
The way certain q/a was handled, allowing dumb ass questions. Line cutters not being shot on site.
>>
>>9940523
>The way q/a was handled
I hate the way every pannel does q/a because they pick out a few raised hands and then go "We have time for like 5 more, line up!" and unless you're sitting right on the aisle seat in front of the mic you're not gonna make it in time
>>
>>9940526
Anyone that doesn't just straight up ask the question or start with something like "I'd like to ask [person]..." or "My question is..." should immediatly have the mic taken away.
People who start with life stories and "2part-actually20" questions are always the worst questions anyways cause they prepare their dumbass sob story speech and more than the question

I had almost this exact experience at the panel for Zanki Zero. The main guys behind Danganronpa came all the way over seas for the panel and took a q/a at the end and one of the few people who got to ask a question pulled this shit
>I really love your guys work, so thank you for everything
>So my question is, will there be a port for the nintendo switch?
Like holy shit. You have a chance to ask the actual dev something of importance but instead "is it gonna come to my bing bing machine" is what they think of, when they could just tweet that to the company on twitter and get a response of "not sure yet".

I guess the only upside was that the guys literally laughed at him when they heard nintendo switch and then the translator said 'no comment'

I still can't get over how I went to the funimation panel at the JW and they just lied to everyone there.
>As you guys know the My Hero movie was debuted on the first day of anime expo

>On the 11th the sub will be in theaters, and the 12th the dub! Be sure to go to our event brite page to get tickets!
>Checked their page all throughout expo and the movie was never listed
>Now it's being said it will be in theaters in fall

JW will run you $1300-$2500 depending, for all 4 nights.
Like another Anon said luxe which is also super close by is superior and just as close. There are a few others as well within a block.

If you try for the jw and fail you'll regret it. Go for the easy target.
>>
>>9940570
How much would the luxe run for all four nights?
>>
File: 5099142637.png (8 KB, 636x145)

8 KB PNG
>>9940571
$600-$1200

Prices vary based on the type of room and hotel block discount.
You can get a feel for it by looking at their current prices for all 4 nights but every hotel jacks it up during the con.
Here is an example of flat rate no discount Marriott. I can find my receipt for the discounted but it was something like $1500 I think.
>>
>>9940576
Geeze that's pretty bad. I'm toying with the idea of a hotel, but really unsure considering I live about 20 minutes away from the LACC in good traffic, maybe 40-60 minutes away in bad traffic.
Is there a way to get discounts? I don't really have experience with hotels, unsure if there's discount codes you can apply. I've heard that some people booking through third party sites have had their reservations cancelled this year, so that's a little offputting
>>
>>9940578
Never use airbnb.
If you have a 4 day badge or premier badge you get a discount on tons of hotels. Almost all within walking distance. For some reason everyone goes for the Marriott when there are a lot of other good options.

The luxe was blasting cowboy Bebop music Saturday it was LEGIT. Thinking of staying there next time.
>>
>>9940581
How do you go about getting the discount with the badge? Do you book in person and show them, or is it an option online?

And when would the reservation slots be available to make?
>>
>>9940585
They email you. Anime Expo, that is. They give you a link to book with them.

They'll let you know when it's available, won't be for another 8-10 months of course.
>>
>>9940586
I might go for that one as well, thanks for the advice

It's overhyped and the orgies aren't very good. You can still hang out in the bottom of the JW without staying there, and access the bar/video rooms.
>>
>>9940602
Also having your own room there doesn't guarantee an orgy. If people are really going there just for that you don't need a room, you just need to get invited to someone else's room

Glendale and Burbank are ok, but the noho/vannuys/reseda area trash is slowly movings towards it. DTLA is basically skid row, even the 'nicer' parts. Santa Monica is slowly becoming Venice 2.0

Btw I was told on day 0 that I can't bring outside food inside the con centre, so my whole booth had to take shifts eating outside until we said fuck it on Saturday and walked right in with food? Was anyone else here stopped with food coming in? It seems so unreasonable, especially for people in AA where they can't afford to leave the booth to just 1 person for 30 mins+

It's more like AX gains from industry more monetarily than cwf. Industry is probably paying either for a booth, a guest, or both
>>
>>9940755
It is mixed. The general rule for the LACC is no outside food but AX is usually fine with it. "Secure" entrances and bag check is a ploy to get you to spend more money on their overpriced con food inside.

Best place in LA is Pasadena desu also LA is horrible for tourists that aren't celebrity obsessed people fawning over hollywood shit. It's great for people who actually live here. Biggest suggestion I give to people visiting is to rent a car.

I booked real late and ended up at the Omni downtown. A mile and a half away.

They did have shuttles every 15 mins or so and it was a $5 uber if you didn't want to wait. Also had decent food options right outside the door.

No orgy that I'm aware of, but the last one I participated in wasn't much to speak of.

Probably a little light but it was kinda weird so I'll tell it.

Was at the opening ceremony. in that huge ass crowd of people. Semi cute Asian girl is next to me. Accidentally, and I mean that, brush my hand across her but.

Then she started pushing closer to me, All while not even looking in my direction, despite the fact that I was behind her. but with a weird sort of nerviness "bobble" of sorts.

After a few minutes of this I got brave and purposely brushed her ass again. No negative reactions. Basically keeps up this way until I get brave enough to get a hand full of it. Only more nervous bobbing. A few minutes later the escalators started letting people in, crowds moved people around and that was the last I saw of her.

I didn't make any attempt to try to talk to her because honestly I'm socially awkward as hell and I'm still not sure if it was "wanted" or not.

guava cheese rolls are overhyped, 85°C bakery beats them hands down
>>
>>9940621
> try shower sex but shes too short
Nothing is worse than being excited to try a new position or place and having your height be the downfall.
>>
>>9941058
I went to the day 1 voice acting panel. I remember thinking the black girl did well at first, but they kept giving her directions and she clearly was getting nervous and started doing worse.

I really wanted to try, but of course I never get picked.
>>9941104
Yeah basically
>>
>>9941212
I don't like porto's guava cheese rolls, almost everything else they have though is way better than 85c and costs less too. The sandwiches at portos are seriously under rated try the chicken Milanese and my favorite pastry they have is their fresh spinach and feta croissants (though those fall off when they're not fresh). Their best hot thing in the case is probably the chicken croquette or the thanksgiving turkey potato ball they do seasonally. There's really too much great stuff to list there.

Nah, trust me it's nothing like mexico. It's full of Mexicans, but nothing like mexico,

Other few notes

>Mario beats Phoenix for the CWF title at Fanime which is the height of his 4 year stay at CWF. AX he retains due to the panel being shut down on account of glass breaking
>Reality keeps starting shit with Mario over the broken glass and even follows him to Twitchcon and interrupts his interview on stage
>Phoenix wins the title from Mario at ALA
>Mario decides to finish off old business with Reality and wins a grudge match. Reality goes in for the cheapshot and Phoenix comes in with the save
>Mario attacks Phoenix at AXtreme rules out of frustration.

This is some long term storytelling

Post your biggest regret of AX this year.

>>9941259
A cute cosplayer asked if I wanted to join their group for dinner but I really wanted to go to see moe shop. It's not like Moe Shop was bad, it was great even. I just don't get invited places often. Probably just some grass is greener on the other side stuff and I'd regret not going to see moe shop if I went with them.

Fuck yeah it is. I paid total of around ~1400$ for 5 nights, 5 nights worth of valet for my car and 2 nights valet for a friend. Includes 2 or 3 nights of wifi cuz rooms and got complimentary internet unless youre an elite member or some shit.

not taking enough pictures of myself and other cosplayers. Also spending the entire night beforehand working on an accessory that got destroyed immediately after walking into dealer's hall

Okada was the best part of the con. If you casual trigger babies cant get into trigger just go get food and leave the good panels to people who care, ok sweetie?
>>
>>9941272
Were hotels always that pricey?
>>
>>9941381
It is in a major city during a major holiday
>>
>>9940958
Or just rep.

Lots of people love CWF but ax doesn't think it's enough people who buy badges because of it
>>
>>9941272
What discount did you use?

alright so see you next year AX

A group has to start somewhere I think I could pull off Masayoshi. Could you pull of Mari?

Are we still riding this log down the flume or is it time for a new thread?
>>
>>9941744
New thread 1 year in advance planning edition
>>
>>9941744
Any thread past this one would just be a shitpost.
>>
>>9941779

Some people are still waiting to dump their cosplay photo collection, and the survey just came out recently so we can talk about Con improvements or just bitching in general. Besides it's technically still the week after, so we haven't gotten into dead discussion time yet.
>>
>>9941796
>con improvements
Instead, let's talk about things that would not be possible if the con actually got their shit together
>The dub show panel got capped, and so did my backup pannel
>I ended up just going to the doors of the dub show, told the guy blocking the hallway "I just wanna sit and chill for a bit" and he let me through
>Once the line for the dub show came in I just joined the tail end and walked right on inside and wasn't stopped
Last year was definitely ridiculous though
>The voice actors for Dangan were doing autographs, but only by tickets
>The tickets went fast, but the booth gave me tickets for another signing instead
>Went to the autograph hall and found the dangan signing
>Just flashed my ticket, which was the wrong color and for the wrong people, to the staffer and he let me right through
>The voice actors were super nice and signed two things for me when I asked if they could
And let's not forget
>Arrived a half hour early for the dangan panel
>Still way to late and the line is MASSIVE
>Ask a staffer which way is the back of the line
>Staffer literally sends me to the front of the line
>The people in front actually let me join them
None of that would have happened if they were competent in any way
>>
Are the RFID badges a welcome change or a hinderance in your guys’ opinion?
>>
>>9941801
What would have happened if you didn't tap out? I saw some people were making people tap in and out of the entertainment hall. Like what would happen if you tapped into the hall, but not out of it?
>>
>>9941805
That happened to me. I forgot to tap out one day, and the next day the entrance volunteer stopped me after I tried to scan. He made me rescan it at the exit and come back.
>>
>>9941813
How long did that take?
>>
>>9941813
Literally 10 secs. He made me walk to the exit scanner from the inside past the entrance gate and I walked back to him to rescan it.
>>
>>9941817
That's not bad. I was worried it would take like 5 minutes or something
>>
>>9941805
I forgot to tap out at the exit. It flashed red as I tried to go in the next day.

They just took me to a ticketing tent and checked my ID, then reset the badge. Wasn't terrible.
>>
>>9941801
didn't tap out when I left the con for good
for all they know I was probably still lurking somewhere in the con
>>
>>9938977
Tfw didnt go to the meetup, it was in the middle of morga fuck that shit.
>>
>>9940755
No lol, that sucks to hear.
>>
>>9941801
I'm tinfoil hat but I feel its all for data mining on attendees
>>
>>9941801
A welcome change. Line entry and registration went so much smoother.
>>
>>9941843
The meetup was alright. It was a little bit cliquey, but that's to be expected since the main meetup people were all in a discord together for months before. Still I went and had a pretty good time, until some asshole set off fireworks at the hotel and got the party cancelled
>>
>>9941272
How much did valet cost per car per day?
>>
>>9941876
It was 49 bucks with in and out privilege.
>>
>>9941887
Unless you're planning on driving a shitload you may as well just not bring a car and use uber instead
>>
>>9941889
I did use my car a few times to drive for food and what not. Its just that I spent so much money on modding my car to leave that shit out in the street or a random parking lot in LA. My wheels already cost 6k, those shits are usually the first to go when you see a nice car parked on the street.
>>
>>9941873
Makes sense. Lol, right when it was getting good too.

Kind of misses the point, if you're going to a meetup, and end up meeting the same people you've been hanging out with the last few days.
>>
>>9941895
>wheels alone cost 6k
Nevermind then, you clearly have the money to burn
>>
>>9941896
Yeah, it does. Everyone I met was brand new to me though, so I had a good time. They were pretty welcoming to newcomers as well, free drinks in someones hotel room, just a tip jar if you wanted to chip in. Guy had a wide variety of booze and was a licensed bartender taking requests, so of course I tipped him
>>
>>9941899

>6k is money to burn

A nice car is in the 30-40k range, easy.
>>
>>9941922
Tires alone being 6k is a ridiculous amount.
>>
anyone have any con photos to dump?
>>
>>9941900
I should try to join in next year. What was the gender ratio?

>>9941928
Haven't worked on them yet but I'll take requests on what you wanted to see.
>>
>>9941933
The ratio wasn't great, but that's to be expected honestly. It was maybe 75/25 dudes to girls.
>>
>>9941801
Yes
>>
>>9941801
I hope they keep them.
>>
>>9941922
Depends what you mean by nice car.
Only retards buy new cars and any nice car can be bought for 10k-20k at 20k-60k miles

Fuck this youtuber shmuck, you didn't need to link his shitty monetized video, it only plays an excerpt of the relevant video. Does he really need help affording more makeup?

Momokun a shit. She's not funny or charming, she clearly hasn't put enough effort into her appearance, and she doesn't have the self-awareness or maturity to take responsibility for her actions.
>>
>>9941854
I'm actually hoping this is what it's for and that they act on their data. I think stats for what entrances and whatnot people use could really help them improve things.

Yeah. Could pull off any of the girls if need be. Now we just need two more people. You got a spare email to shoot?

I figured "wheels" was slang for "car", but reading it again it looks like he did spend 6k on tires.

>>9941963

Spoken like a true poor person.
