She also likes Mecha so it's all good in my book and as a shock to nobody i am an AZKi fan and don't have a problem with AZKi's 1st or 2nd designs either. To me they helped her stand-out from the others.
Maybe part of IRyS "realism" is because she is going to be focused on music and MVs so they wanted something more real? There again it's just RedJuice's style looking that their other work so maybe Cover just wanted to work with RedJuice?

The MV was nice too.

I managed to catch most of Matsuri's Holotalk episode live and thought it was one of the better Holotalk's so far, not the least because Matsuri was willing to be so open and genuine rather than just going full meme. Worth watching if you're interested in her even a little bit.

If i'm lucky i might get to "meet" Kiara at a con next month



No idea what that's gonna be like in practice tho, maybe some sort of screen and camera setup while she sits in a different room?

I remember seeing a video of Annin Miru in a fan event where the fans just sit infront of a display, but she's a way smaller vtuber especially back when it happened.

I remember when Pekora had her infamous ARK Map Skills incident she was gifted a "Map Reading Book" for children by one of her fans at a convention "Meet-n-Greet". She spoke about it in one of her streams and there's a picture of the hand-over too. Then the fan showed up in chat and she swore at him and laughed.

Basically there was a table with a Screen/iPad and a box for gifts and the fans queued up and sat in front of the iPad and spoke with Pekora. I'd say it's the same thing but i don't know if they are in another room at the convention or at home.

Found 'em!

Pikamee is getting new hair tomorrow (Gyari is still working on it overnight apparently lol)



I usually don't care about cameos stuff but Leon's VA really hit it out of the park in Pika's birthday stream (the rest are worth checking out too):


It was a really fun stream, last time she cried on stream was when Monoe get terminated so it's good to see this time she's crying out of happiness and not being miserable.

Getting sick of speed-subbers keeps getting recommended by Youtube even though you mostly watching original content? This is a list of recommended channels from community translators, with proven track records and "paranoid" quality control.

That's a quick debut for Nijisanji_EN Wave Two. Wave one with Pomu, Elira and Finana only debuted two months ago.


Good to see a "recommended" subbers site being made at last, i've been relying on the lists the VirtualYoutubers & hololive Subreddits make.
Though some of the subbers they dislike don't seem that bad to me but then i usually watch the same clips done by a couple of subbers so i get the full picture anyway. I mainly use the lists to avoid the "Drama" subbers and channels that expose or focus on their previous identities.

Though with the number of decent EN VTudebers these last few months i've been watching fewer JP Streams and Subs. I'm just busier at the moment too which cuts down on my ability to watch as much as i used to. I've been trying to catch more sub clips and i still watch AZKi's Streams obviously.

Stream !SPARKS!

I really love Maple Leaf, the video descriptions are on another level.

Kvik Thanks for the reminder! I missed her stream today due to being busy because Microsoft are a bunch of fuckwits but i have it queued up on my personal machine ready for when i finish work in an hour.

[UWSL][UWSL][UWSL]Gundam SEED[/UWSL][/UWSL][/UWSL] & [UWSL][UWSL][UWSL]Macross Delta[/UWSL][/UWSL][/UWSL] Song Streams? [UWSL][UWSL][UWSL]AZKi[/UWSL][/UWSL][/UWSL]'s a Mecha girl for sure! ♥⚒♥



In addition to Pomu from Nijisanji-EN, who is freaking awesome, i've started watching Pina Penguin from PRISM and holy crap she looks like what a VTuber would look like in Dragon Quest to me. I'm watching her League of Legends stream with Luto-Senpai ( Araka Luto ) and god it's making me want a Kiara/Ame & Ina collab, Araka's rage outbursts are hysterical compared to Pina's calm and giggles.

IRyS' first Karaoke stream


AZKi has just put on a 3D Live Show as part of Youtube Music Weekend too.

Manager said it was a one-shot recording too.
Go to 14:20 for a bit of a nostalgia gutpunch.


Looks like Hololive and Holostars are going all in, do a search on youtube for "hololive Youtube Music weekend"
Hololive Channel showing hololive Misc Fes Archives, for example.

Kvik , sanhora ,ezodagrom ,Cordelia ,Hektor - Figured i'd tag you all in even though i know there's no chance any of you are missing this!

Kiara confirms that IRyS has a [UWSL]1 Month Collab Ban with HoloJP and HoloID[/UWSL] but only a [UWSL]2 week Collab Ban with HoloEN[/UWSL]. which as she says makes sense as IRyS has no one to collab or interact with so a month is a bit long. Two weeks is enough to get a following going, get her streaming setup sorted and build a rapport with people and then she can start to think of collabs with the others.



Personally i can't wait for an IRyS, AZKi, Sora, Suisei karaoke collab and then again using using the classic, old Karaoke set when she gets her 3D model. That'll be amazing. An IRyS, Moona and Ayunda collab would be great too! IRyS plays Apex so she'll fit right in with Ollie and Ame too. Good times ahead, i hope. Haters be damned.

Calli said in her stream that she's organised a Karaoke with Irys once the ban is lifted. Guess that confirms she's Japan based.

Also Niji EN gen 2 debuted yesterday and they're all amazing.

IRyS keeps winning! Showing her class from the start and going straight in with a classic!




As some in the comments have stated, AZKi sings Inochi with a lot of emotion maybe sadness but IRyS' cover sounds more hopeful.
An AZKi/IRyS Inochi duet would be amazing. With this cover IRyS has definitely won the Pioneers over to her side. The comments are really positive and supportive.

Get well soon, Iofi!
I hope she recovers fully and doesn't have any of the log-term issues that can occur due to COVID infection.
Have my fingers crossed for our Alien friend and she'd better take all the time she needs and not rush back or stress about streaming.
We can wait.
I'd rather have her back fully rested and full of energy than have her come back when not fully ready and have to take time off again.

I've been busy with work or i would have noticed their debut on VirtualYoutubers subreddit and posted about it earlier.
Here's a video of their Pummel Party collab which will be good to see how they interact and if there's any that spark your interest.



I've got my regulars that i watch frequently and my schedule is pretty much full tbh so i'm not sure how many more i can fit in. There again i found space for IRyS as i like her streams so there's some wiggle room left.


Pomu and Melody had a Keep Talking collab that i'll watch later as i watch watching the HoloEN Adventures with the Ender-Dragon last night.

I'm really enjoying Araka Luto's streams, I NEEEEED a Calli, Ame and Luto collab. Something chaotic which flows nicely when they get it but that also has scope for rage.

Pikamee & Nijisanji & VShojo Collab Stream Link.


edit:
Yup, as suspected i've never seen a recent Garry's Mod Prop Hunt that isn't super-scuffed and broken and this is no exception.
It's a shame as everyone seems like they'd be having a ton of fun together otherwise.
edit: okay, now everyone has got the hang of things and tech difficulties are sorted they're having fun now. Apart from Iron Mouse who seems to be having a bunch of issues.

Pomu is going on hiatus for a few weeks to have surgery that will lessen her likelihood of getting cancer, so Best Wishes Pomu!
I really like Pomu's streams and i need to watch Finana too... So wholesome and seiso.


edit: I just checked Finana's channel and yup, my preconceptions are shattered. I thought she'd be silly and naive but nope she's silly, naive and plays Nekopara. Bottom Left confirmed. by naive i mean she says things and then realises she maybe should have worded it differently or kept it to herself. lol.
