I will definitely miss Coco, bummed I cannot watch it live.

Maybe she can still collab someday as her KSON model :face-savouring-delicious-food: mostly kidding

___

I wonder if the new English group will launch sometime in July or August. I could see Cover being somewhat deliberate with when they have them debut given the debut anniversary of HoloMyth and the graduation of Coco. Have not followed news on whether or not Cover has provided any updates, but I thought applications ended a few months back in March?

I couldn't remember which Holomem, but they talked a bit about how there's a bit of orientation period after they passed the audition where they acclimatise themselves with streaming workflow, deciding on a personality/backstory, meeting other members of the same gen, also the back and forth with their illustrator/rigger regarding the Live 2D, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole process could take months before they can actually debut.






#桐生会FOREVER tag kind of blow up. Gen4's final Micra stream also kind of somber in tone towards the end.

[UWSL][UWSL][UWSL]chuubas in sync[/UWSL][/UWSL][/UWSL] doing great work as ever...




I expect it to be a few months before new HoloEN appear. As Kvik said there's a LOT of work and team-building required before their debut. I understand people are thirsty but i'd rather they took their time and had their debut when they are ready. It's not like there's a shortage of VTubers and content at the moment so i think Cover can take their time to make sure that the project is polished. There will be massive hype on the new HoloEN members and the V-Diva regardless of when they debut... though it doesn't really matter because we know the [UWSL][UWSL][UWSL]HoloEN Tech Curse[/UWSL][/UWSL][/UWSL] will hit them no matter how much practising they do,

We also have new VOMS on the horizon and the new auditions and project from Tsundaria in a few weeks.
Between HoloEN, HoloID, VOMS, Nijisanji-EN and VShojo i've got so much content that i've been slacking on my HoloJP & Nijisanji translated clips too!


Time to honour our other missing friend too... Good Luck you lot!

Coco Kaichou's final stream is definitely something to remember. The rollercoaster of emotions is something else. Taking a trip down the memory lane with each generation of Holomems was fun and bittersweet, but not until Towa broke down in tears we actually feel the entire weight of it. Kanata was a strong woman though. I thought Watame would be the first to break, and with Kanata being the closest one to Coco, well, I thought she would be the close second. Even Botan gets emotional near the end of their last ARK collab, something that I totally didn't expect since she was totally composed even when making the announcement after Aloe's graduation last year.

After the stream and Kanata's new cover track (which is haunting yet beautiful), I immediately jumped to Flare's Everhood stream to recover. I really appreciate that FBK, Suisei, and Miko were streaming too. We know that they probably feel as sad as we are, even though they can still see Kaichou IRL. Miko's picture book stream is really wholesome, although I didn't see it entirely. I'll definitely checkout the archives later.

Anyway, it was a great send-off. Kaichou's AsaCoco and Meme review was really fun and I'm glad that I get to be a part of the community and experience it, even if it's just for a short while and I don't have much to contribute.

I honestly don't even need Gen 2, because i genuinly like all of Gen 1 and they have handsdown the best characterdesign out of all Hololive Gens.
I could just watch these guys forever.

However, i am also really curios what a Gen 2 could bring, cuz Hololive EN started off so amazingly that it's really hard to top it.

HoloEN notGen2 just need to be themselves really.
HoloEN are going to be a tough act to follow so hopefully they just do their own thing and see how it goes.
I seriously wish them all the best because i hope i'm wrong but i can't even imagine how many internet assholes they are going to attract when they debut.

I'm interested in them even though i thought i had enough on my plate as i really like Pomu from Nijisanji-EN so i now know there's space for a couple of new personalities to fill my VOD schedule and stop me watching other things. Hurray for VODs and Archives! At least i can return and watch those streams of the VTubers i've missed while doing other things.

I'm fine with new generations as long as they keep them sparse enough, to give each generation enough time to shine.

New generations can result in interesting new collabs/interesting new dynamics between the new members and the current members, like the Flare and Polka collabs.

I wondered why there was ticking, always ticking theni realised i hadn't muted the Hololive English Witness Countdown, lol.
Nearly 4k people wondering and chatting about why they are watching a countdown timer, lol.
The big question of the day is can i stay awake until 02:00 BST to witness the witnessing?
It's on the Hololive english channel so it's got to be related to them. I don't remember them doing a countdown like this before so it's got to be "something".
Hmm, New HoloEN Group Theme hint/teaser, HoloEN V-Diva hint/teaser? Ame just being a troll-face internet edge-lord gremlin?

¯\_ (ツ)_/¯ Who knows?

Looks like Pikamee's channel got demonetized today for unknown reasons, she said the reason given was "repeat use of existing content". Hopefully Youtube get it fixed soon enough. Today was also exactly 1 year since she opened membership, and her birthday is next week.

Do what you want to because Youtube is going to screw you anyway.

Apparently Pikamee has been re-monetized. I'm happy that ended up being relatively painless.

Also, of all the HoloEN songs so far the only one I listened to more than once (well, 15 times or so in that case :p) was RED, but I like Sparks quite a bit too.

And the internet has found several indications pointing towards the potential former identity of the new Hololive Vsinger even before her debut. Curious to see how that turns out.

You all thought you'd escaped but nope! It was AZKi's Birthday Concert the other day. Nene and Watame joined and were having a great old time. It was a good fun.

The introduction of ChibiAZKi.


Azki has a real-time transformation into her 2nd Outfit and i'm sure Cover have done some work on it.
It looks great and it's good to see it again. Wata-oji and Nene-oji definitely thought so.

Yeah Pikamee got re-monetized. Youtube responded on twitter and fixed it within the same day, all the retweets from the community and on top of that I saw several Nijisanji/Vshojo/Lyrica responding so it probably helped. Always good to see she's getting all the support as an indie.

Marine's back.
I think a major part of the problem is that youtube is so large that it's dependent on automated processes and "The Algorithm" which as we all know is prone to streaks of random idiocy. I doubt it takes much for the system to be brigaded by off-site drama too. At least the issue was resolved quickly but realistically unless you're earning Youtube tons of cash they don't really care. I don't think Twitch is that much better either.

Well, at least it's resolved.

What I don't understand is why any automated action as drastic as terminating a channel can happen without any form of human counter-checking for a channel with more than 1 million subscribers. Sure, Youtube is too big to work entirely without automation, but I don't buy the argument that they couldn't hire enough people to check substantial actions affecting channels of that size.

55k currently watching IRyS Debut and it's just started. Calli, AZKi, Lamy, Botan & Anya in chat.
Starting with a song, great MV.

72k watching now in the time it took me to type that. wow.
Here we go! 79k wow. Avatar looks great, she must be nervous as hell. I can't imagine it following on from HoloMyth.

and... holoEN curse right from the start. Shoo, Get out of here curse! Yay, Curse gone, 89k watching.

RedJuice is her illustrator papa.
Rariemonn is her Live2D papa.

Worst Hololive design since... Azki 1.0?
The face is just rough, some real uncanny valley type stuff, especially the nose. It feels too realistic compared to how anime all the other Hololive designs are, like a character you might see in a generic chinese gacha or something. Can't blame Rariemon too much since he's one of the best riggers and I'm sure he did what he could with what he was given.

On the other hand, nice singing, cute voice and she seems bilingual, so that's neat. Means she can do collabs with JP, EN and ID senpai. I can only hope she gets a new costume or a live2D upgrade with a less awkward looking face real fast.

I like her design tho, it's fine. I'm sure they'll tweak it as times goes on but i don't have any problem with it.
She sure can sing, i'm sure once she does a singing stream and her voice warms up she'll be awesome.
