I think this is correct for the UK :

JST - BST - Name
19:30pm - 21:00pm (11:30-13:00) - MIKU EXPO Concert (2)
21:00pm (13:00) - MIKU EXPO Concert Pre-Show (3)
22:00pm - 23:20pm (14:00-15:20) - Digital Stars EU Performers - Only Twitch.
23:30pm - 01:00am (15:30-17:00) - MIKU EXPO Concert (3)

edit: Pretty freaking great so far. The band is going hard. Miku, Lenn, Rinn, Meiko, Kaito. It's a proper Expo.
edit: Thanks to the Miku fans who backed and kickstarted this so we could watch too!




Watame's 3D Birthday Party Live is starting now - 13:00 BST!

Wata-Shogun, WataBotan. Haachama Haato, then Flare Fubuki Watame in Idol kit,

Fubuki is revisiting PSO2 on her free time since the NGS update is about to come out this week (she mentioned that she used to play it long ago), she posted pics of the character she made on twitter:


While it looks like she's not going to stream PSO2, I wonder if she'll stream NGS. xd

EDIT: Aqua is gonna return from her break tomorrow. ^^

Watame's Birthday 3D stream was a lot of fun~!

I want that coffee mug but I'm a bit wary it'll get smashed in transit. It's nice of Watame to do unlimited signing of the postcards, though.

Right, i'm going to Geek Jack again then. I want a Watame Mug and i want to have a look to see if Ina's Tako Hoody is still available as i might go mad and get one. Shipping and taxes will probably be mad but it'll be unique and make me laugh each time i see it so i might go for it.



Watame's cover of Monster by YOASOBI is out:

"Pin Pon Pan Pon" is the Japanese alarm noise and lots of the the Holos use it but AZKi used to use it almost all the time at the start of her streams so i'm conditioned to associate it with her.

Is Ina secretly an AZKi Pioneer?



Also, i went mad for a minute and bought an Ina Tako Hoody from Geek Jack and ouchie! Shipping was nearly half the cost of the item! ... but it'll be worth it when it turns up. Not that anyone will see me in it. lol. Couldn't resist after they got supermodel Yagoo to wear it for the pictures. lol.


Also here's Lucky Orb from the Hatsune Miku Expo 2021 Online Live Show:

That was a good Mario Party stream and as chaotic and fun as you can imagine. Well worth watching.

Official Press Release


Just completely unreal...



You know someday the folks will want to stop and go do something else, but I really thought things were turning for the brighter and the increasing number of collabs made me think it was getting better. I was excited to see her starting to collab with EN folks.

I will say one tiny, small, silver lining is they are keeping her channel and content up, which after some other folks being wiped off the map, I appreciate...

Kanata is going to be having a talk. I am assuming it is more to lay it out and not have it constantly brought up on her streams since she lives with Coco.


I likely will not be able to stay up much longer, so I will miss it. I just hope everyone is feeling okay with Coco's decision behind the scenes.

If Cover is no longer blacklisted by China and start getting back sponsorships I guess we'll know whether this is legit or not. I have a hard time believing this is something that Coco suddenly wanted to do now.

That's so sad to hear! I hope it is for good reasons like new prospects and things to do and not because the threat of antis were putting strain on her working with the others making it difficult and stressful for everyone.

I think it would be a good idea for the Holomems to collab more over the next few months to show that the antis haven't found a valid harrassment campaign.

I've also just wondered if she's getting a "behind the scenes" job with cover where she can interact with the JP branch and the new overseas talent? Cocoma? It would make sense.

Obviously sooner-or-later they are all going to graduate and move on for various reasons which is why i just enjoy their content and interactions and don't get caught up in the drama, whales demands and head-canons.

Anyway, Good Luck and Best Wishes for the Future, Kaichou!

I never watched much of Coco, but this is still a pretty big shock. Particularly since she just recently started doing collabs with HoloEN.
Overall, she's extremely successful both with the Coco persona and outside of it, and will probably continue to be so with whatever she decides to do next, so there's not really much to worry about in that regard.

Oh, and I'd really prefer if people don't give Narukami clicks.

Sad about the Coco news, pretty much at a loss of words that it came to this, but seems like the retirement is completely on her terms, so I'm gonna do what Coco said and try to stay positive. It's looking like Coco will be having alot of collabs for this last month?

On another note, there's a Scarlet Nexus stream in Calli's schedule, I'm guessing it'll be a sponsored stream, but, it's nice to see another Bandai Namco game being streamed.
SEGA, Capcom and Square Enix also started with a few sponsored streams before they eventually reached an agreement with Cover to allow the talents to stream their games in general (though, non Bamco IPs, that is, the anime based games, would probably not be included if such an agreement were to happen?).

The saddest thing about this I now realise the collab restrictions probably only lifted because she chose to graduate. Anyway, she's collabing with everyone until the end, and they just announced Meme Review with Watson. Also Kiara is hinting at Coco for Holotalk.

Also. I'd noticed that Coco's "roommate" (wink) has started streaming more again, even yesterday with her own avatar...

AZKi is appearing on KAF's live show this weekend!
I know the first two days are paid but the third day (12th) is free but i don't know when AZKi's appearance is.


Also, Nijisanji are having a "World Among Us" event which is a great time to get to know some of the english speaking talents, they'll mainly be speaking in english & indonesian i'd imagine looking at the lineup. It's a good chance to see Pomu in action who is the NijiEN member i end up watching most.
Pomu's great.



I've just seen the Mario Party Collab with Calli, Watame, Fubuki and Coco.
Will Fubuki be enough to stop Watame from swearing like a trooper in english by the end of the stream?
Watame thinks Calli is cool and Calli couldn't hold back the language by the end of her Ollie and Coco stream so i think it'll be calm for a while then Fubuki will just give up as Calli subconsciously starts letting go and Watame starts mimicing her. Goddamn!, lol.



edit:
Yeah, Coco's "roommate" has also had an insane number of increased subs in the last few hours.
It's probably going to be the best worst kept secret in Hololive.

Now that I have some time to reflect a bit on the news, I've basically have come to terms with it. Coco might not be my favourite vtuber, but I enjoyed her streams a lot and she has been a constant presence for me since I've started watching Hololive. I had some good laugh with Asacoco last year, and Sunday arvos won't be the same again without Meme Review. I know nothing lasts forever, but it's still extremely sad to see her go.

Holo Discord was pretty much in shock for hours, lots of sad and angry people. Flare cancelled her RE8 stream as well to rest and reflect. Because of that, I was watching Mio's singing stream and looks like she's dealing with it with her own way. Afterwards, I saw a bit of FBK's #Unolive stream before bed and it's good fun, at least for an hour or two I can take my mind off things.

This Coco stream from two weeks ago where she's "Hypothetically" talking about managing Vtubers hits different now.

The Kanata stream yesterday was good where she cleared up a couple of things, said that Coco isn't moving out at this time and for people to stay positive which in the Doom-and-Gloom addicted society we have at the moment is a big ask. I've accepted that Coco is leaving and i'm happy for the time she was with us and the content she put out and wish her all the best in the future.

I watched Nyanners, Pomu and the Hololive Sings channel last night after starting Mass Effect 2.
Will catch the Calli and Ame archive today when i finish work and before tweaking Mass Effect 2 before i start my actual playthrough.

I'll have to catch the archive tomorrow, i've gotta go to bed but there's something to look forward to for tomorrow!
Hope it's as fun as i expect. Clubhouse Games is always a good icebreaker for new collabs so it should be a good time all round.

As expected the Ina and Pika collab was incredible. Fate wasn't kind to Pikamee as the game randomly chose Chess for their "last" game, but a fitting one.

Hope they do another collab sooner rather than later. They were really enjoying themselves on the stream! :smiling-face-with-open-mouth:

Also the picture Pika drew for Ina:

Sad to see but i hope she's well, gets refreshed and works out whatever it is that's troubling her.
Going on hiatus sounds like she has some decisions to make. All the best, Haachama!
Whatever you decide.


The Pikamee & Ina collab was great fun. I'd hope to see either a drawing or Monster Hunter Rise collab as the next one whenever that is.

Polka's new L2D 2.0 looks pretty good. Keffy did great work once again.

AZKi and MaiR's 3D Live concert was pretty damned great though i am biased.



Going to watch the Ame Meme Review, Gura and Calli River City Girls, some Nyanners and then some Pomu.
Oh yeah, there's some E3 thing going on as well but i keep forgetting it's on, lol!

I've a lot of catching up to do as i've actually been playing games! Mainly Mass Effect 2
oh... and looking for a small room air purifier to buy as my allergies are insane at the moment and my room is too hot and dusty.... Alexa, sing Unravel.

Kiara's Nintendo E3 Watch-along Stream is up.
Goes Live at 16:45 BST according to the reminder.



Suisei & Calli Collab - Getcha - Premiered earlier today.



Also, Nacho-mama is going to debut as a VTuber soon. So many illustrator moms are VTubing now they'll probably set up their own informal agency, lol


Nabi-mama likes her daughters to be well protected...

Nyanners and Kiara play Clubhouse Games 51



This seems the default "ice-breaker" game-set on recent collabs and a good choice i reckon.
I just hope they stay as far away from Chess as is humanely possible and override "Random" if it suggests it.

Shion is going on Hiatus for health reasons, Akai Haato/Haachama is also going on Hiatus but won't disclose why which is fair enough. It's none of our business really. Wish them well and hope to see them both again!

Coco's amazing Birthday x Asacoco stream is now fully subbed in English. I dont think I've ever seen a stream this long be officially subbed before.

I'm getting that Kiryu-kai hoodie and pin. The one-two punch combination of this purchase and the Steam Summer Seal will be the end of my wallet. It barely just recovered from my recent GPU purchase. :flare_sulk:





Late-night Micra with Full ShiraKen crew. :flare_utawaku:






Korone's 1/7 figure preorder will start next week. Anyone have 20K yen lying around? :flare_woozy:

Gura and Nachoneko ( Amashiro Natsuki ) played Mario Kart and apparently Nacho-sensei didn't hold back at all, on the track or off it. lol





I'll get the Kiryu Hoody too i reckon. I'm waiting for the HoloMyth goodies to be sent out, i have an order for Ina's Hoody so i may as well try for the Coco Hoody. Though lord only knows when they'll be delivered.


Also, read an update on Reddit from a kanata tweet regarding Haachama...
Update from Kanata's tweet, Here is the Translation: This is just a little break for Haachama, who had been running at full speed all this time. I've already had a chat with her, so don't worry! Just relax and wait for her😊


Nijisanji jusrt announced auditions for Male and Female EN VTubers!
