Just noticed HoloSongs has put up a new "Hololive Original Song 20 Most Viewed This Week Chart", basically they total up the views on Hololive Original Songs and chart the ones with the largest views for the week. They also do this for Hololive Covers and Hololive/VTubers generally sometimes... or is that a different channel? I forget.

I'm just posting as it's handy to spot any new tracks and it feels like old saturday chart shows from tv.
Just 30 sec clips from each song so the videos are pretty short too.



Here's Top 30 for Holostars! Good to see someone giving the lads more coverage!

New AZKi & Sora cover premiered today - [SorAZ] You are like me / AZKi Toki no Sora [I sang it]
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny - Kimi wa Boku ni Niteiru - Cover.



Sora also helped AZKi build a house next to Ankimo House so they're neighbours and AZKi based her design on this cute birb.


The parts i caught of Akatsuki Luci's 1 Year Anniversary Live Stream have been great. I'll have to catch the archive later.

The original clip is private but here is the story of the treasure...



I remember it because it was just before we went into lockdown and there weren't a ton of clips yet as Hololive and VTubers hadn't taken off like they did over the summer of 2020. It's great to see Korone like this, it's why i'll always remember her Miko Firework Celebration stream too and Miko's New Years Eve song for Korone.

Some clips that caught my eye this morning...




Korone and Pekora got big bundles of merch from Square-Enix and i'm not surprised because Pekora especially has been LOVING Dragon Quest lately and has hours and hours of streams. We don't talk about the hours of gambling tho...



"Save the world already!"
"SHUT UP!!!"


Hololive themselves have released a Lo-fi playlist of Hololive songs, perfect for a chill Sunday afternoon...

No schedule for Pika this week because she say things might change, but for tomorrow she's doing Demon's Souls


Also anyone has experience with making clips? I might try and do some, I'm approaching the bottom of this pit at a high speed.

Anteater I haven't done anything more advanced than trim a video using the Windows tools, Microsoft Photos is the latest one, in a long while but i know some departments at work use Shotcut and DaVinci Resolve. There's also Filmora, Handbrake i think does clipping, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere but many have gone to monthly subscription fees and the free/open source editors can be limited in their output OR can have a steep learning curve or unintuitive interface. There's TONS of them if you start looking but i can't say if any are any good.

Fanatical and Humble often have bundles for Photo/Sound/Video Editing so i'd try some of the free ones while you keep an eye out for deals and other recommendations.

DaVinci Resolve - Black Magic Software
ShotCut Home Page

I'll ask some of the people at work who stream or do video editing what they recommend when i go back on tuesday.
Also, maybe ask in the Steam thread as there's people like InquisitorAles who actually make youtube content who can probably help you find good tools.

For subtitles, I used Aegisub in the past. Relatively very quick to learn and has some powerful plugins to use such as for Karaoke/lyric song effects.

"Top 50 Most Viewed Songs This Week - (2021/4/23~2021/4/30)"



I just realised i posted this channel on Saturday so i'll give it a rest for a bit after this. I just find them fun to watch and find songs i've missed.
I forgot these bigger videos have a "Hololive highlights" this one is Mio singing "Pretender - Official Hige Dandism" and it's awesome.
I also need to listen to Shion's cover of King some more.

Found it on "VTuber Singing Re:Boot" This channel is let down by youtube as it's one i'm subscribed to! lol.



Also, AZKi is in a 10 VTuber Collab of Among Us with a wide variety of VTubers like Mel, MaiR, Mari and other VTubers i'm not sure about but i suspect they are VTubers, Singers and Voice Actors as AZKi does a lot of collabs outside of Hololive.

Calli's New Costume Reveal Stream.


Here's a tweet from A-Chan with the scheduled costume reveals, some have already happened. I missed Watame's for example.

Watame's outfit reveal May 2021 - That wink probably killed some people.
In my view Watame is still one of the most lively and expressive with her avatar of the Hololive talents.


Warame reacts to Calli's outfit reveal


Calli's mama tempting Wata-oji lol.



Coco & Calli rap stream when?

I like Towa's new outfit. It has that "gyaru" look I'm quite fond of. Watame's outfit is cute, though.




Flare will be playing her favourite game series in about 15mins. This reminds me I still need to pick up the original collection on Steam.

AZKi & Sora having a Guerilla Minecraft Concert at the moment. lol.
It's scuffed and late starting due to tech difficulties and was supposed to be a singing stream i think but it's fun and i'm hoping there's a big concert stage built somewhere on the server soon so we can have proper Minecraft concerts. Ha, just as i post they're having mic checks and sound delays. Sora/AZKi voice checks and keyboard asmr. lol.



Sora and AZKi casually singing acapella while building and renovating Ankimo House. Just chatting and singing while working.

I'm going to miss AZKi and Calli on Ponpoko & Peanuts marathon stream Vol 5 as it's at 4am weds morning but i just realised that this might be special for Calli as according to TVTropes when Calli was on Trash Taste she said that Suisei is her favourite Hololive Senpai with the other being AZKi.


Calli and AZKi on Pokopi Station:




Pekoland Grand Opening!




Also, a reminder that Kiara's new outfit reveal is soon and it's followed by her secret collab song release!
2021/05/04 - 22-00 - Kiara's outfit reveal!
2021/05/04 - 23-15 - Love Words III - Kiara Collab with Gura!

edit: In her outfit reveal stream Kiara just revealed the secret collaborator and the song and it's... Love Words III with Gura!

OMFG, Huke Papa has gone wild. Kiara has so many changes and accessories! And keffiy the rigger has done an amazing job with the animation and movement of her model. Great job everyone, like seriously, that's a huge amount of work.

Summer shoes, shorts and top with bikini, sraw hat, choker and Lebkuchen gingerbread bag with HoloEN symbols and the pink tinted sunglasses... then a KFP headband instead of hat and... now it gets weird. The Pacifier broke Nenechi and Kanata but top-tier trolling from Kiara and Huke Papa... then to top it off she has Cat ears and a big fluffy tail. Apparently PhoenixFashion was trending #4 in the US and Kiara was trending #8!

AZKi and Calli on POKOPI STATION segment on Ponpoko Vol5 this morning. they are the first segment and apparently POKOPI STATION is where VTubers showcase their favorite new/upcoming VTuber artists. Hopefully someone clips it but i already saw Nagisano Kanade's new collab project towards the end of the segment. OH FFS! YOUTUBE! I was watching the start of the segment and now the video's gone private :(

AZKi & Calli ( with Ponpoko & Peanuts) - POKOPI STATION - PonPoko 24 vol 5 - Part 3

Destiny is conspiring against me ever seeing Calli & AZKi together.

This was the track i caught from a preview scrub of the timeline.


Good to see Nagisano Kanade getting more recognition, i've been following them for the last 18 months or so and they just get better and better. They make their own models, animation, sets, music, lyrics and have picked up the nicknames of "The Landlord" or "Laser Landlady" to western fans via AZKi's marathon spotlight streams due to their videos looking like they are the landlord coming to collect rent and then shooting the place up with laser guns.

Here's the segment of the VRChat show they did that was shown during the last section of AZKi's October Marathon Spotlight stream which was dedicated to VRChat concert segments. This is where the "Don't shoot me, i'll pay the rent!" memes started. After 47 hours hours many in chat were slightly delerious and newcomers were just plain confused. It was awesome.

Ina's New Outfit Reveal Stream starts in 30 minutes and there's already nearly 17k in the pre-chat.




I still have hope that POKOPI STATION will be allowed out to play soon... please, pretty please!

Anteater There was a question posted just now on the Hololive Subreddit asking how to pull specific clips from a livestream and someone posted a link to this Stack Exchange thread which shows how to use Youtube-DL & FFMpeg to download only the portion of a stream you specify which would then make it easier work with when you load it into whatever editing app you use.

StackExchange - How To Download a portion of a video with Youtube-DL & FFMpeg

Here's the Holo Reddit thread in case more answers are added later.

Hololive Subreddit - How to get clips from a finished livestream

edit: Oops. I got a bit carried away there. Okay, i've just read further into the answers and i'm wrong this seems to start the download at a specified point but stopping at a specific time seems tricky but there's some tips and scripts in other answers. It seems most of my searches tell you to use an online site to do it. Something like clipconverter.cc has start and end points so that may be something to try.




Gura's New Outfit reveal stream... 2 hours to go and there's 11k waiting already.
Unsurprisingly there's no chat up yet, with 2.6M subs it'd be chaos anyway.

120k now and there's probably still another 15 minutes to go until the viewers will peak when she does the reveal.

edit: not quite 200k, but 194k is incredibly impressive considering this isn't a great time slot for japanese/sea or eu viewers. she broke the all time vtuber record. sauce
i think the outfit itself isn't that amazing and honestly i haven't been a big fan of most of the EN outfits so far, getting kinda tired of just slapping nekomimi on everyone.
maybe the original ones for all of them were just so good it's hard to top them.

Congrats to Gura for the number of viewers, that's insane but not unexpected. So close to 200k though, madness.

I've liked all the outfits so far to be honest. I think they fit their personalities really well. Gura's was the most simple and efficient reveal and she doesn't have all the accessories the others have but i think it suits her. I'm looking forward to Ame's Outfit Reveal tonight and the HoloEN collab tomorrow.

As for the Neko thing, i don't really mind, it's just a bit of fun and Kiara's Nekotori has the added bonus of winding up Calli who said she wanted a cat and Huke was a master troll adding the pacifier and all her different accessories make sense when she has so many different moods and energy levels.

Fubuki is probably disappointed that she can't collect the full "HoloEN Megane Set" as Gura didn't have glasses as accessories. Combo Breaker! ( as they say on GameFAQS )

I was watching some AZKi streams and songs last night and noticed that the "Holo Live" channel, Mutant Strawberry found has updated and expanded so it's no longer just Gen 0 but other Holos too. The playlists link to Hololive Original & Cover songs, Live & Karaoke by each member to make it easy to find things and the Hololive members get the views not the channel. Nice.

As an AZKi follower it's good to be able to find her early stuff easily and in specific playlists.

She doesn't have many accessories, but still has a few, the cat ears and the bag are removable:



On another note, Ina drew Kanata in her new outfit, the drawing is really good:

I love Ina's art-style and i love that she does these while streaming and chatting to people. Making jokes and puns or just talking about life or art while putting out images like this in 2.5 hours. Her art streams are really comfy and chill and i have put them on when working as they're relaxing.

It's made me pick up my tablet and dabble in Art Rage a few times too. I really need to get into the habit of doodling and noodling around while watching.

Thanks for the tips on clipping! I haven't started yet lol, haven't got the time the entire week, but I haven't found something I really want to clip yet.

Pikamee will be streaming RE8 in 8 hours, she has been jumping to new games the past week, she still got RDR that she hasn't went back to but I rather watch her play demon's souls or nier replicant.

7 minutes to go and 23k in the pre-stream chat.



Ane's fans have more jokers than Gura's lot. So many comedic or zany outfits guessed so far. lol.
She's starting to get less nervous now thankfully.

Oh god, Chat plays Ame Reveal... and it's just as scuffed as you imagine. Funny thing is my Live chat is saying "Down" but her chat is mainly saying "Up" i think something's disconnected or she just wanted to troll chat. I wouldn't put it past her to troll chat.

Yup, it's glitched, lol. but damn, Ame's being super creative with this. It must have been a TON of work to set up.

Ame telling Chat what to type and chat replying with "No Backseating!" was comedy gold.

Time for the accessories and costume changes. Jacket off and of course, glasses. Oh, new arm positions too!

Oh, shit who gave her a gun!? What madman gave the gremlin a shooter? ( Paintball )

Oh god, she's such a gremlin, love it. Her "magic trick" will give Enma a heart attack, lol!
Making VTuber history there, Ame.

Definitely. Across EN & JP they've really suited their characters and personalities and the reveal streams have been fun too. Totally different to each other but again really showing their differences in their creativity and thought processes.

Great to see the tons of support from their "parents" too, there's been a lot of work put into these reveals and it's been fun to watch.

wow, first time i've seen a VTuber trending on twitter in the UK, she must have made an impact. glAMErous is trending here with 26k tweets.


AZKi just retweeted that there's a 5 hour VTuber Music Festival in 10 hours time.



_kanade_kanon - 5 Hour VTuber Music Festival tweet

"V Home Festival 2 - 70 pairs of VTuber Original MVs for 'Ouchifest' , let's have fun at home!" (According to DeepL)

This Festival is off to a great start so far! Sugar, Yoko Train and now Teddyloid.

Ryuji has clipped the songs from the AZKi and Sora Minecraft channel the other day. Such a great stream. I'd love AZKi to turn this into a regular series where she has guests come and help her in Minecraft and they sing acapella and just chat. Sora/AZKi is such a great combo.

Or Sora but i say AZKi because she's new to Minecraft and starting to collab more with the others again so it'd be a great excuse to get people to help her with Minecraft and sing together.

Aqua's Free 3D Live Concert is at 13:00 BST Sunday for us kaigai-niki.
One thing i have learnt this year is that JST is 8 hours ahead. I'm so proud of myself, lol.



HoloEN Collab link... They're playing Pummel Party together in their new outifts.
I expect chaos.... and at 1 minute to go they added 9 minutes to the counter.
HoloEN curse gave them space for the reveals but is back with a vengeance? lol.



Announcement afterwards too. Mysterious....

The first HoloEN Collab Cover is out on the 15th May and it's "Take Me Home, Country Roads"!
One step closer to them covering "Ochame Kino"...
And Calli has an original collab song premiere tomorrow too.

Someone just sent me a playlist of 300+ vtubers singing KING so here you go lol.
322 Vtuber King Covers
That's been a "thing" on the VTuber/Hololive subreddits this week. I've seen at least four threads asking if there was a list of VTuber KING covers or saying they've compiled a list and are there more! Good to see someone took up the challenge. I'd actually been wondering that myself.
I'll be adding that playlist to my youtube acct, thanks!

I was also wondering if Kanaria has the most tracks covered by VTubers? I think nearly everyone has done at least two or three Kanaria covers.
It has to be them or Miku?

Also, Polka didn't cover King yet did she? She went for Envy Baby instead so it's a perfect chance for Polka to do a 300 King endurance stream like her Blue Clapper stream, lol.



FFS, Kiara! Calli "Am Frog"...



Kizuna A.I. has a DJ event next week on Youtube/Twitch/TikTok/BilliBill


I also love this art of HoloEN in 90s Anime style.

I watched the entire Pikamee playthrough for RE8
omg the game was a lot better than I expected, the ending specifically really hit me, when credits scroll pika basically said "holy fuck I'm depressed", Ethan is such a good RE character

Also this part really scared her and she tried to call tomoshika (spoilers)

Hope she's had a good break!





Don't know how good it is but because people were interested here's a video on Live2D and becoming a VTuber just released on the VirtualYoutuber subreddit.
