Roboco's PC setup. Her TKL looks super neat, it's the first time I saw it. Check the video description for the full spec.

Cool, good to see those Roboco clips get a translation. Those two mice are no longer available, her keyboard is custom and the other is not available anymore either. I checked back in September, lol. All my keyboards have been TKL for years now as they really help with my posture tho for a VTuber the other important thing is they don't take as much space when you have two PCs on one desk :D

Also, Rushia asking Chat to help remember the name of a Candy she really likes was a mistake... RIP Ears and Desk-kun.


( I expect she will get bags and bags of Puchi Pastel for her Birthday later this month )

So far my resolution to watch more indie VTubers has been failing spectacularly but i've been playing games more than i've been watching youtube tbh.
Back in the Rabbit Hole i go.

edit: aaaand... i bought some of those Puchi Pastel that Rushia like so much. They don't carry them in the Korean Supermarket around the corner unfortunately or i'd be munching them now.

I actually cancelled both my anime subs (Crunchy & HIDIVE) since I've been watching Hololivers more than actual anime. :dana_blanket:

Speaking of which, Pekora just started streaming Yakuza 0 again.
I cancelled my netflix because i have no time for it now. Vtubers are my main entertainment. In fact, the last movie i watched was The Room, because a vtuber was doing a watchalong :p

God, i love Polka. She sang Blue Clapper for 2 hours yesterday. 30 renditions. Mad lass.
However, Chima Machida from Nijisanji sang Freesia for 8 hours back in September. Madder lass.

Omaru Polka - Endless Blue Clapper

Chima Machida - Freesia for 8 hours

edit: i just had a look about and according to reddit "Polka said at the end of this stream (30 loops) that this was only practice for her own hundred."

Pikamee just finished another Dark Souls 3 stream. She's gotten pretty good at it and making steady progress. They're a joy to watch. Her evasion skills are on point.



Monoe was streaming Sekiro and got stuck at Genichiro, despite getting to his last form within the first 20mins. She'll probably get it quick the next time she plays, I think that's just the kind of game Sekiro is.



Monoe also finished Cuphead on Coop with Tokiya Yumesaki. They finished all the bosses and their secret forms relatively quick.

Better get yourselves prepped up with water bottles, snacks, sleeping bags and litter tray as Korone is thinking about one-shotting AC4 Black Flag soon.
Can't wait. Korone learning and singing Sea Shanties with the crew will be awesome.

Also Ayunda Risu released a cover of "Daddy Daddy Do" with Oga today and it's a much more chill version than a lot of the other covers i've heard.


...and here she is proving she is the spiritual lovechild of OkaKoro with her fantastic cover of Flos.

Okayu's cover of Flos is actually my favourite cover version of Flos.

Watching korone playing Sonic 2 has been some quality entertainment. So many deaths lol
She's still going at it 10 hours after starting the stream. After clearing it several hours ago, she thanked superchats, and then... started playing again, got all 7 chaos emeralds (with the help of save states before each special stage) and is now going for the true ending clear. xD

Whoa I saw her finishing the game with the normal ending and I thought she could be ending the stream.

Korone has some godlike attention span for playing the same level over and over for hours without losing her sanity.

Okayu has a great singing voice. My favourite is still Flare's, but Okayu feels like someone who can excel at anything without even trying, even singing, lol.

Speaking of singing...



What the hell is this gap!?

A clip from the 3D reveal stream.

Kvik I think Botan is amazing, HoloFive are really good and they are all finding their places in the company and i've noticed that Polka is hosting some shows which allows Mio to participate more and helps show the less crazy and more reserved/responsible side of Polka.

I thought i'd posted this stuff last year but apparently not as i can't find it in the thread. Last year Polka had a meme stuck in her head and she decided to share it and now it's stuck in my head too. Well done, Polka, Well done.



Polka had this stuck in her head one night while trying to sleep so she made a meme video so everyone would get the earworm...

The phrase in japanese is something like "Who will make it easy for you? Uchi No Gohan" and Polka changed it to "Who will make it easy for you? Shishiro Botan" which is why the Lazy Lion remarks "... but i don't want to do anything." in the comments.

Gah! Typical, i can't find the reddit/twitter threads where people had their own fan-made parodies and posts that fill out the meme a bit more so instead...

Bonus Hi-Spec Robot and an Angel Devil lewding a Sheep while a fox tries to host a show.

Poor innocent not-at-all degenerate Watame.

I don't watch Watame but she looks like good people from this clip

I'm glad these goofballs are enjoying their time making a living while bringing joy to people watching them honestly

Watame is a mix of wholesome and lewd. She has weekly singing streams, interacts with the fans a lot and is generally beloved by everyone. She also had a run of being banned by Youtube which is hilarious given her nature. Watame and Mio seemed to get picked on by "Cherry Youtube-kun" regularly when they started.

She's famous for Gangimari Face, being on Asa Coco frequently, Singing a lot, Headbanging, hanging around with the Hololive Predator girls, TKG, Jan Ken Pon, some great original tracks, memes, Watame Factory, Gaming Watame the RGB Sheep and being wholesome, caring but with a fun/lewd edge to her at times. Also, is she Shigure Ui?

Ai-Mai Chocolate - My favourite Watame original song


The situation that really launched her was this apology video and it's how many people got into her. One of her early streams had a stupid number of disconnections but i think Coco helped come up with this which became a meme and she really took off after this.


Also, famous for running a "Jan Ken Pon" ( Rock, Paper, Scissors) game at the end of her singing streams which Miko would always tune into and never win until...
( Protect your ears! )

She has also spoken a lot about her parent's separation, her dad not caring and growing up with her mum and grandmother. Many feels there and that clip you posted is typical of her. She's very humble, caring and supportive and wants people to have a good time. She's just generally awesome tbh.

edit: Also, some Sheep breeds like the Dorset Horn have horns on both male and female sheeps. We're just more used to seeing polled sheep where they don't have horns or only the Rams do.

Watame's a great singer. I enjoy how she controls her Live2D model, always so bouncy and expressive. Like Flare, she's very nocturnal so unfortunately I can hardly see her streams live, since she starts at 1am-2am in my timezone. She gets around a lot, probably has the most collabs compared with her genmates. Her Micra streams are also super relaxing.

Anteater Here's another video of Watame with the same kind of feeling.

That just goes to show vtubers were the best thing that came out of in 2020, well not technically but it exploded in 2020 from what I can tell.

Most of their content are positive, make people laugh and there are endless amount of them, people just want to watch others having fun and goofing off.

I've been watching Flare and Polka's Micra collab stream for the past couple of hours. :dana_blanket:

Super relaxing, none of the usual chaotic Polka antics so far, but she still making Pol-puns though. There's someone live TL-ing in the chat as well.

Yeah, i watched a big chunk of that stream. It was a huge field-trip, guided-tour and Minecraft lesson from Flare and Polka was just loving it.

edit: Polka is now playing Molly Online to win a Botan keychain. lol. - YEAH! She just won it as i was typing this! :D

It's impressive how you resisted writing "She's famous for not doing anything wrong". (I do realize you bring it up later, but still not explicitly)

also:



Watame takes Luna's advice on how to make money...



and another signup to ZakoInternet ISP...

I had that ZakoInternet image as my Teams background for a while. lol.


edit: Looks like Botan is really enjoying Zombi as she's coming up to a 6 hour stream which is the longest she's done so far i think. La Lion has great taste.

I like this version too.


Temaru asked if they could change the music and D0N said sure just credit me etc.


Forgot to post this: FBK Presents: Hololive Oversleeping Stream 2021 Ep 1


1 Kaicho = 1 hour, 1 Shion = 2 Kaichos, 1 Baba = 2 Shions.


Love the way she turns these into fun instead of negatives. I'm sure it's helped tone down the backlash from some segments of the fandom.
... and it's also funny as hell to see their tags trending on Twitter too. Fubuki Best Friend.

Kanata is doing an endurance stream, going for the true ending of Doki Doki Literature Club (she already played it once before).
She's voicing the characters while playing, she has quite the voice range.

Today's Pikamee's Dark Souls 3 stream was fucking hype. If you've watched her previous streams, Pikamee never use Parry and don't feel comfortable trying, until she fought Gundyr and decided to give it a try, she immediately got it. Still took quite a few retries because she usually loses in the second half. She mixed it with her dodges so you can tell she's not just spamming it for every attack.

This kettle has incredible timing and reaction time.

Great weekend for VTuber music!
It's awesome to see Kizuna get another wave of recognition and popularity as people fall into the rabbit hole and discover her. This concert is bloody great.

Tubeout 4!
Tokino Sora, Ginga Alice, and Kotone Tenjin will perform a full-scale music live while looking back on the past tubeouts.


Gura's 2M Subs Hololive Karaoke Stream

I had to drop to 480p and hide chat because it was brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Also my audio service was going mad and kept spawning processes and i was going grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
