Japanese grandma and her heartfelt videos
Like other VTubers, part of Hiroko’s appeal is her candid conversational style. So, in one of these situations, she was very honest. “Finally, my grandchildren are old enough not to have to give money for them in the New Year, [costume japonês] but recently my first great-grandson was born, so now I’ll have to give him money,” she laments, adding, “Guys, let’s use our New Year’s money wisely.”
Monetary issues seem to be on Hiroko’s mind quite often. In a video, she says that received an email from a Gen Z viewer asking which is more important, love or money🇧🇷
And do you know what his answer was?
” That’s easy. Money is the number one thing. It’s thing number two. There is no such thing as number three or number four, but even number five is money. Love is something you’ll have later someday.”
