New video:

The deathnote rip off is so uninspired and lame, that it's actually surprising, even by Alex's standards. Lifenote? really? that's the best parody name you could come up with? The Mulberry art that's in the 'show' and on the poster are so weak and are traces of other Deathnote art. (at least the pose that betrays perspective of the rest of the shot is hers).

the most offensive bit of it is the fact that there is voice acting alongside a really ugly text-crawl. Don't crawl the text, just display it as special subtitles

Once again Alex steals, uses something from a hentai he watched recently and makes the game more bloated.

Protip: Someone put Alex's update videos elsewhere, so he wont get any ad bux, he does not need more money.

For a minute, I thought that Alex had stooped so low that he actually had ripped something word-for-word from the series, because for the longest time I thought that a Life Note was something that actually existed in the Death Note universe. I checked, it's actually something called a Death Eraser and it's not canon.

Is Mulberry his only artist now? I guess cause she's willing to work for free if she thinks she gets a chance with Alex.

And the mop is broken, just using it will get you sent to the counselor or expelled by saying there's a corpse when there is no body.


And even leaving a guitar on the ground will get you apprehended (when not used as a weapon)

Well, there still are single digits to strive for.

Wait, what does it do? It saves lives or what? I ask, you know, because original Death Note was used to kill people and that's why it was called like that. Well, I've watched it and this is basically just murder hints. So joke is that it should be called "Death note", but instead it is called "Life note"? Jesus, even "Big Busty Boobies" "How to get a boyfriend and don't end up in jail" would be better.

Sorry, but what exactly did he steal from a hentai in this update?

Holy shit that Life note part was literally just one picture displaying for like 4 minutes of poor dialogue and just text reading no skip button too. Does Alex really think he is a genius at writing when all he does is just rip off ideas and make them edgier
He's too busy thinking about what to plagiarize next.

The height of storytelling is having the main character of Life Note explain what she will be writing, then having the text box tell us all that information again but in the past tense.
Alex never ceases to amaze me with how little he understands "show don't tell". It shouldn't, given the fact that he can't stop himself from spoiling every tiny detail about his game and its autistic lore, but it does.

Well that makes me think. Wasnt there something in his Patreon Goals? Oh yes there was:

100 % of this attention on Yandere Simulator. Well sure...I guess making videos about the game will count but its a bit surprising. At first 1,000 $ were enough to keep 100 % of his attention and now he wants to supplement his income with videos when it goes under 3,000 $. And he would even go so far to include backer rewards if the amount goes under 2,000 $.

I am always interested in the financial aspect of these people. I saw that he is still living with his parents, who seem to be quite well off. So I would guess that the lost money is just a loose of status for him. Thats it.
At first I thought he had the typical lifestyle inflation that often comes with a raise in income. But his lifestyle pretty much rules that out. Since he rarely leaves the house and his hobbies are not that expensive, unless he is a fanatic fan. So I wonder where all that money went to. I have to believe that his short term finances are pretty stable for at least more than 1 or 2 years.

But in the long term? Oh my. He cannot rely on his parents all the time. They are both over 60 and now retirement is on the horizon. And that usally means less money and medical problems. For example I wonder if he does adequate retirement financing. I would guess no since hes already to much of a failure. And there are of course other aspects that will screw with him in the long term. He wont be familiar with regular household tasks or cooking since his parents cater to his needs. Thats comfortable now - but really shitty in the future, when you have to do these things alone.

And god forbid the situation where the parents actually have to rely on him. This wont turn out good.

Alex stated that he "pays a lot more in taxes." I dont understand what that means. Like...he doesnt have enough "employees" to have to pay for their taxes. He constantly says these people are volunteers and any money they get isnt a payroll but commissioning work. He doesnt own property, I'd be shocked if he bought his own car. I'm assuming he's paying a few hundred to his parents to live there, but nothing about what he says he spends his money on would make him burn through 3k to 5k a month he was making. Like I'd love to see tax forms from him because I've believed for awhile he's just sitting on free money.

I call bullshit on that asap. In most countries - you dont want to be in a position to not pay taxes. Because that would mean that your income is on a level that you can barely substain yourself or that you have to rely on social welfare. He might refer to social insurances like medicaid or social security payments. I can be wrong here but in the US it seems the payments are made partly by the employer and by the employee. But since he is self-employed he has to fit 100 % of the bill himself.

High taxes would mean high income and his income has risen. Its falling now. His tax returns will propably show that. Nothing more. Far more interesting is what he did with the money. Save it? Invest it? Consume it?

Depending on this the effects of a further decling in income will have very different outcomes.

Either way, the money he makes on YanSim isn't nearly enough to carry himself into retirement. 3-5k/month + YouTube sounds cool until you realize he doesn't have healthcare or benefits and his salary is constantly falling.

So, instead of having Info-chan telling you what to do step-by-step, you get to read the same information in a 5 minute long shitty "anime"?
Maybe if the anime was more subtle about these more creative methods of murder, it'd probably be an OK addition to the game, but it's still just a step-by-step process bogged down by awful writing.
I actually think the info-chan method is better, just on the basis that it's not a hassle to deal with.
