  1. I had first learned about Shine around December 2015. I was going through a lot at this
  2. time, and although I thought his videos were kind of cringy, I thought that his awkwardness was
  3. kind of endearing and I agreed with his opinions in certain videos. Around March, I stopped
  4. watching his videos though since I lost interest and only occasionally watched his videos after
  5. that.
  7. In May, I went to Japan for the first time and I was pretty depressed at the time. At the
  8. time, I had no friends due to a fight in my friend group and was basically alone. About a month
  9. into my trip, I saw on twitter that Shine was having a meetup and I decided to go since I didn’t
  10. have anything to do that day and thought I could maybe find other people living in Japan there.
  11. When I got there, everything seemed to go normal until he suddenly asked for
  12. everyone’s phone numbers. I thought it was a bit strange, since at the time he was nearing a
  13. million subscribers, but I just went with it and gave him my LINE. When the meetup ended, I
  14. hadn’t even gotten on the train yet before I got a text from Shine. He seemed happy that I came
  15. to the event and texted me quite a lot that night, asking about why I was in Japan and how long
  16. I would be there and why I didn’t come with my friends or boyfriend. I told him I was single, and
  17. he responded that he was single too and seemed excited. He then asked if I wanted to hang out
  18. in a few days, and I said that I wanted to. (Just wanted to clarify that it was him who initiated
  19. everything, since apparently he told other people that I clung to him the entire meetup and
  20. wouldn’t stop talking to him.)
  22. So, on June 27th, we went around Tokyo to the Pokemon Center and later went to see
  23. Deadpool at the movies. To me, it was a really fun day and I thought things went really well,
  24. since he hugged me before he dropped me off at my hotel.
  25. However, what happened next was very strange. After this day, he pretty much stopped
  26. talking to me and I didn’t know what happened. Right after hanging out, I tried texting him a few
  27. times over the next week, but since he was pretty unresponsive, I gave up. I went back to
  28. America at the beginning of July and texted him a few times that month, but again, his
  29. responses were usually very short. I ended up not really texting him at all for the month of
  30. August.
  32. When I got back to Japan though, I texted him again for the first time in a month and all
  33. of a sudden, he was super interested in me again. He asked me a bunch of questions about
  34. myself and very quickly started to suggest hanging out. I was a bit confused since he hadn’t
  35. talked to me in a month, but just shrugged it off because I was happy that he was interested in
  36. me.
  38. The first time we hung out, things went normally and Kat came. He showed me his new
  39. apartment, and we all just chilled there for a while while he told me about his life. He talked
  40. about a girl who he had dated before, who was a little younger than him. He said that she
  41. thought they were dating because they just “did some stuff together” (inferring they just kissed)
  42. and when he told her they weren’t dating, she started crying and freaking out and had a panic
  43. attack. He made fun of the panic attack and talked about how she was crazy and when her
  44. mom came to get her and the hospital, her mom w as crazy too. ( This girl was Ashley) The
  45. whole time, I thought it was very strange that that girl would have to go to the hospital after
  46. staying at his house, and thought it sounded like she had a UTI. I didn’t say anything though. He
  47. also claimed this story happened months ago and that she was 17 years old. He also
  48. complained about how he had another crazy ex, who apparently “starved him” when he lived
  49. with her and apparently she hit him once. ( This girl was Lindsay) Although I was worried
  50. because he was talking about all of the girls he dated so badly, I tried to push it out of my mind
  51. and just went along with everything.
  53. After this, Shine became more openly flirty with me, texting me kissy emojis and hearts
  54. and stuff. He also talked about how he cared about me and how he wanted to see me every day
  55. and possibly help with his Youtube channel. I thought it was kind of strange, because it seemed
  56. excessive and I knew we weren’t dating so I felt uncomfortable with it. I didn’t want to say
  57. anything though, since I didn’t want him to get mad at me.
  59. A few days later, Shine asked if I wanted to sleep over at his old house before he
  60. moved. When I went, he picked me up from the station with Kat and we walked back to his
  61. house. At this point, Kat said that she wanted to clean up the house before I went in, so she left
  62. Shine and I alone outside together. While we walked around the neighborhood, waiting for Kat
  63. to get done, he said that he wanted me to be in one of his videos as a maid, in some kind of
  64. parody of those VICE Japan videos ( He eventually did make this video, but with another girl).
  65. He also said that I could maybe draw his thumbnails if Kat was too busy.
  67. While it sounded fun, I wanted to evade answering the question because I didn’t want
  68. him to think that I was just hanging out with him because of youtube or something. After talking
  69. about this, he then said that since there was only one bed in the house, maybe we could sleep
  70. together. At this, I was kind of uncomfortable since I’d only been talking to him a few days now
  71. since I got back to Japan and I told him that I wouldn’t sleep with him. At this, he seemed
  72. concerned that because I didn’t want to sleep with him, I hated him, but I assured him that I
  73. didn’t and we went back to the house.
  75. That night, things went well and we all played card games and jenga and had a good
  76. time. Things got kind of weird though once I “went to sleep,” (They might have thought I was
  77. asleep, but I was up the entire time) and they both started to talk about things that had
  78. happened recently. Apparently a girl messaged Shine while he played Overwatch, saying that
  79. Ashley was “Talking shit about him.” Shine became angry about this and started complaining
  80. about Ashley to Kat. Kat then said that he shouldn’t trust anyone and to not tell anyone about
  81. himself anymore. She seemed to mainly be criticizing how he told me about himself.
  82. I felt awkward at being subtly talked about, but just tried to shrug it off and laid in the bed
  83. while they both worked on uploading a video. The next morning, he acted normally to me and
  84. called a taxi so I could get back to my house.
  86. After that, Shine and I continued to talk frequently and eventually, we got onto the
  87. subject of him being unable to get a girlfriend. Throughout that conversation, he told me about
  88. his past relationships and told me that he wasn’t a virgin. He also made it seem like it had been
  89. a very long time since he had a relationship, and acted like he hadn’t had sex in a very long time
  90. (However, I later found out that he had just had sex less than a month ago with another girl) I
  91. felt bad that he had never had a normal, nice relationship and I really wanted to possibly be his
  92. girlfriend and give him a fun, normal relationship. Shine then proposed that next time I sleep
  93. over, we be “cuddle buddies” and sleep together. I felt a bit nervous about this, since I knew it
  94. could go wrong very easily, but ended up agreeing to do that with him. As the conversation
  95. closed, he said that he wanted to talk about dating more with me. We said goodnight to each
  96. other, and agreed that I would sleep over at his new apartment tomorrow night.
  98. The next night, he texted me a lot before I came, telling me he missed me and
  99. got upset when I didn’t respond to them the way he wanted me to. I felt a bit uncomfortable with
  100. these texts, since I knew he wasn’t my boyfriend, yet he texted me like he was. I just went along
  101. with it and eventually arrived at his house later that night. Everything seemed to go normally
  102. again, and Kat, Shine, and I all went out to eat. Once we came back, we decided to retire for the
  103. night and Kat went into the other room to sleep. Around this time, Shine asked me,, “What is
  104. your personality?” I was concerned about this, since he literally knew nothing about me yet was
  105. still going to sleep with me.
  107. Shine and I were then left alone, and we both got ready to go to bed. As we laid there,
  108. we talked about some normal stuff and as we talked, Shine started to hold my hand and pulled
  109. me closer to him. The atmosphere started to get kind of weird, and eventually we started kissing
  110. and things escalated from there.
  112. The whole time we did stuff, Shine seemed strangely nervous and almost
  113. panicked. Although I was very confused at this, I just went along with it and tried not to think
  114. about it. Once we were done, he told me that Kat thought it wasn’t a good idea for him to be
  115. dating now and called it a “one night stand.” I was a bit worried about this, but just hoped that
  116. maybe he had misunderstood the meaning of a “one night stand.” He also admitted that at that
  117. meetup 6 months ago, he wanted my phone number because he thought I was pretty and really
  118. wanted to talk to me and he deleted everyone else at the meetup, except me, from his phone
  119. soon after. (Just a note: we didn’t have sex during this)
  121. The next morning, Shine asked me if I would later have sex with him, but I answered him
  122. that I would only do it if we were in a relationship. He seemed okay with this, though. After, we
  123. all went out to lunch and things seemed to go normally. I didn’t suspect anything was wrong,
  124. and when I parted with them at the end of the day, I hugged both Shine and Kat.
  126. After this, we never hung out again and he never texted me again unless I texted him
  127. first. He told me a few times that we could hang out soon, but nothing ever came of it.
  128. Eventually, his responses grew more and more distant. At one point in October, I was by myself
  129. at a restaurant and had a bad reaction to an alcoholic drink I got. When I told Shine, since he
  130. was my only friend in Japan at the time, he reacted with disinterest a few hours later and said
  131. “Drinks don’t get spiked in Japan. Are you sure you’re not just drunk?” This scared me, and
  132. made me realize that I couldn’t depend on him. By November, his responses towards mine had
  133. become straight-out rude. When I asked if I could leave stuff at his house while I was out of
  134. Japan, (He previously said this was okay) he told me that he told me he was “Dealing with shit”
  135. and that he couldn’t even put his own stuff in his house. I tried to make conversation after that,
  136. but all of his responses were single-word responses. I got upset by this and expressed it by
  137. sending him a dejected-looking sticker. I then told him that I didn’t know what I did to him, but if
  138. he wasn’t interested in being my friend, he should be upfront about it.
  140. He responded to this saying I was being selfish, acting like a victim, trying to
  141. make him feel sorry for me, and that he should think about his feelings instead of my own. In
  142. response to this, I just kissed his ass because I didn’t want to get in a fight with him. But inside, I
  143. felt like this response was unwarranted and even funny in a way because it was such an
  144. extreme reaction. To this, he thanked me for apologizing for being selfish.
  145. Since then, Shine only responded “Thank you!” when I told him stuff and eventually
  146. blocked me or deleted me from his LINE in December.
