Suisei is happy then. From what she said on holotalk it seems she loves the challenge and finds it fun. Their battles are legendary.

I really enjoyed the Gura & Ina MonHun collab the other day even if the beastie glitched itself and isekai'd so it wouldn't have to deal with the shame of being killed by them. lol.

I can't wait to finish some of the games i'm currently close to finishing so i can start MonHun Rise on my switch. I want that Watame styled quilty armour.
Not looking forward to the RSI i may have to endure. Is it better with a Pro controller?

I just realised Suisei is not going to be one of the guests on Kanata's 3d birthday celebration stream. Anyway, the setlist so far is pretty great.

1. Renai Circulation ft. Noel and Mel
2. Sweet Magic ft. Haachama
3. Usseewa ft. Towa
4. LOSER ft. Nene
5. Sekai Gofun Mae Kasetsu ft. Azki
6. Uchiage Hanabi ft. Marine
7. Platinum ft. Ayame
8. Hibana (Kanata's original track)
9. Umapyoi ft. Fubuki, Miko, Mio, Lamy, Shishiron and Polka.

-- and that's it~!

That playlist does look great so far, i'll put the stream on in the background tonight when i'm gaming for sure.
It's so good to see AZKi interacting with the others more frequently.

Better to play it safe in the current COVID climate though so i can understand why they'd want to get people in separately.
There were probably scheduling conflicts and planning considerations that probably stopped a big 3D Live Collab.
Kanata seemed to be having fun for the moments i was able to pop-in and catch so that's great and nearly 100k viewers is phenomenal.

Slightly OT i suppose but AZKi's monthly post was about how much she likes AKINO from bless4 so i figured i'd post some links and she also said she thinks Yoko Kanno is a genius, which i think we can all agree with.

You may know AKINO from bless 4 because of this track...

Composed by Yoko Kanno and sang by AKINO from bless4.



... and a live medley i found from 2011.


She also expressed her appreciation for Yoko Kanno, No argument here!

The Seatbelts are a forever favorite of mine due to Cowboy Bebop but also these virtual live performances last year.

Thanks! I know that song as the one where the chat spams "AISHITERUUU" during the chorusl. Always wondered what the title was.

It actually seems to be strongly inspired by this Manchester United one lol.



So many memes about football manager Coco already

I've been catching some of Izaya's vods over the last few months as he's been covering VTuber music more frequently than Anime. He does a lot of coverage of Hololive/Nijisanji and Indie VTuber music and has started regular "Watch Party" streams where he watches music videos he's found or are suggested by chat and there's usually a wealth of new tracks to like and listen to. With so much being released and underexposed it's a good time to catch up. I usually have them on in the background and pay attention when a track i really like pops up.

Currently streaming "Watch Party 8 Part 2"...


Xino only has 900 subs but has an amazing voice.


Akatsuki Luci has a pretty amazing voice imho.

Nyanners is my favorite especially since I was following her WELL before any of this. It's crazy to see how her career has gone from all those years ago.
I often get nyanners history videos recommended to me, but I never clicked, was she well known way before her vtuber career? I'm incredibly wary at looking at that stuff because I'm not sure if they gave their consent

Nyanners has had an online presence for at least 10 years, she started uploading voice overs and skits, she used FaceRig and various avatars for a long time before settling on her current design. She took down a ton of her videos a while ago which makes it seem like she's new but she's been around a long while. She really took off over the last few years but i'd seen her videos and heard her mentioned for years but didn't watch much as she was mainly on Twitch and still is.

Her streams are a mixture of chill watching japanese walk videos or train journeys or just chatting to skits and degeneracy. She's all over the map. It's great. Like everyone else she has talk streams, karaoke streams, gameplay streams and streams where she watches videos with chat. She recently joing a collective with other Independent streamers to form VShojo ( Iron Mouse, Silvervale, Froot, Ventreya, Melody) so they could support each other and not get stomped as easily as they would on their own by false claims etc.

She is appearing at a virtual concert with Kizuna Ai in the summer so Nyanners is finally getting the recognition she deserves, she's worked damned hard at this and it's good to see it paying off. There's a TON of content and memes for her but i suggest her Bloodborne playthrough and some random VODs like Among Us with Kizuna Ai on the Nyanners VODs channel as a start point. Or go to her Nyanners youtube channel and watch some of her "Out of Context" clips.

Nyanners Twitch Channel
Nyanners Twitch VODs Channel on Youtube
Nyanners Channel on Youtube - Mainly Short skits, Songs and stuff from VODs


Reminder!
Kizuna Ai with guest appearances by Nyanners and Teddyloid is Today/Tonight ( Depending on your timezone )- 2021/04/24-25 for the L.A. Show

I dunno about SUPER well known, but she was very popular for her VA back in the day. Edward above sums it up much better than I would've.

She's similar to Gura in a way. Had a history of years of shitposting, songs and meme videos before their current form. (Though in Gura's case, you're really not supposed to mention it but it is the worst kept secret. There's a reason why she's at 2.5m subs. She dropped enough hints to ensure her old fanbase followed her..)

The same with Calli, she had a large following beforehand and it didn't take long for people to work out who she was. "Live Again" was aimed at her old fans. I do like that we don't talk about their past lives though.

I'm here for them as they are now.

Dammit, i knew of the Asano Sisters and Asano Sisters Project but their covers of Sound Horizon obviously slipped my mind until yesterday when i saw them in the "Hololive/VTuber Cover Most Watched" chart thingy i watch. Here's some Sound Horizon goodness on a sunday.



Sound Horizon/Linked Horizon are well worth checking out if you want some theatrical musical productions for sure.

Marine's fashion critique stream (I dubbed it HoloVogue) last night was pretty funny. Korone's fashion sense is basically retro (like her games preference), and Kanata's basically obsessed with floral pattern, lol.

Kvik I'll have to see if i can dig out a clip or two from a year or longer ago where (I think) Coco was critiquing a couple of the Holomems fashion sense and yeah apparently Kanata always wears the most terrible floral pattern clothes and sometimes wears a t-shirt with a big cutesy logo or animal on it just for added "What?".

She's changed to be a bit more fashionable now they're in KanaCoco House but Coco still mentions Kanata's dress sense now and then.

Nyanners with VShojo and HoloMyth are both starting TTRPG Campaigns soon. VShojo are playing D&D and Calli is GM for a HoloEN World of Darkness Campaign. I'm gonna have no free time at all soon! Good times.




I don't watch Melody but the way her eye twitches when chat gets her with Updog in this clip is amazing. You can feel her pain and silent scream.


I've been really enjoying Gura's DMC 5 & Metroid streams and Ina's Paper Mario Origami King sessions. It's great to see how well HoloEN are growing.
Some of Ollie's voice work on the characters while playing Omori today was amazing to hear. HoloID always surprise me especially Moona and Ollie who i end up watching most of. I want to catch more of the others too but there's only so many hours in the day unfortunately.

The Ponpoko tweet has a tweet about each team appearing. Playing Neptunia VVV recently has made me more of a fan of Ponpoko!

Azki & Calli - 2021/05/05 - 4am BST from what i can gather. Hopefully the whole 24 hours is archived even if spread across various channels.
I'll be appearing on Pompoko 24 vol.5 "POKOPI STATION" with Calliope on 5/5(Wed) from 12:00!
I hope we can talk about many things...! I'm so excited!
šŸ’“ Looking forward to it! šŸ„³

I'm watching Ina play Nier Automata while playing Nier Replicant (well, its sidequests -- I wouldn't want a distraction during the main story, but it's nice during fishing :p).

Neptunia Virtual Stars is one to watch a video on before deciding if you want to get it or wait for a further sale. The VTubers in the game are essentially 30 second Loading screen clips, short skits on Monitors that appear in the game levels and power-ups you collect that appear as cards in mini-games, and small skits in the HUD that comment on your actions in-game and assists you can trigger when gauges reach max.

You don't play as them or have them in your party at all. The game itself is a 3rd person shooter, fast-paced almost like a twin-stick shooter with two seperate teams. Nep, Noire, Vert and Blanc are the usual playable characters with different weapon types. You only control one of them but can switch between them whenever you want. The new VTuber characters they introduce specifically for the game are paired up, you control one of them and the other is AI controlled but you can swap between the two characters at any point. Another paired team of VTubers appear later and you can swap between the two teams of two at save points and check points. You run around the levels shooting Antis ( with love ), collect powerups and a ton of different items for the many systems in the game like props for the dancing/video conversion game, items you can convert to power up the VTubers or buy accessories you can attach to the playable characters to power them up more. It's bonkers.

It has the usual Neptunia humour and skits so if you don't like that then you won't like this. I've been playing it while listening to podcasts or HoloEN/HoloID/VShojo archives.

I recognised a bunch of the VTubers like PonPko and P'Nuts and ileheart, the Compile Heart VTuber is great, i made a post here.

Meta VTuber Thread - Ed's ileheart Music Appreciation post

I'm having fun with it but i can see how it annoys some people and there are technical issues for people too but i've not noticed anything.
There's a reason why it's not been promoted by the VTuber Agencies but if you're an IF/Compile Heart veteran you know what to expect.

Defo watch videos before jumping in though.

Thanks! Also to note, the Deluxe Pack, which includes the soundtrack is also 36% off. It does require the base game though.

Bonus Korone TKG!



Aha found the Watame and Miko TKG no Uta clip i posted in the thread ages ago!


Durante I've just seen that our favorite Virtual Revolutionary graduated at the end of march. I must admit i didn't check that much tbh but they say they are finishing 6 months earlier than the 2 years they planned. I wish them well!
