IRL Twitch streamer ‘robcdee’ saved a Japanese tourist being followed by a strange man in Tokyo with some clutch intervention.

During a February 10 stream, the Australian was hanging out by a kebab shop when he noticed a Moroccan girl being followed by a Japanese man in close pursuit.

Thinking quickly, the girl approached Rob and claimed he was her friend. “Here’s my friend,” she said as she approached him.

“Good to see you,” the streamer responded and swiftly patted the woman on the back, indicating that he was up for playing the part.

“Have a good night man,” he told the Japanese fellow who had been trying to get the attention of the girl.

After a little back and forth, the Twitch star was able to send the Japanese man on his way, much to the joy of the tourist who thanked Rob profusely.

Rob explained to the tourist that some Japanese men have a very aggressive style of flirting where they “approach, approach, approach.”

This practice is called nanpa and while it is common in Japan it is frowned upon.

As it turned out, the girl had just arrived in Japan two days prior and had to figure out how to get back to where she was staying.

Luckily for the Moroccan, Rob decided to stay with her for two full hours until her train finally arrived. She couldn’t have picked a better person to approach when she was being pursued earlier.

For his part, Robcdee has a pretty good history of taking care of people in Japan. Earlier in January, the Australian Twitch streamer saved a drunk tourist from an unpleasant situation and helped him get back to his Airbnb.

With Tokyo being such a popular destination for people all over the world, it’s good that streamers such as Rob are willing to give folks a much-needed hand in the event their dream trip goes south.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
