Matsuri is absolutely terrible about this and my least favorite Hololive Vtuber as a result. To be entirely fair, it might be entirely a result of translators latching onto the "joke" (because of course they would ) and combing her streams to showcase every single instance of it, but either way her jokingly (at least I sincerely hope it's a joke) lusting over little girls happens way too loving often.

Matsuri gimmick is to be as outrageous as possible, even if it makes someone else uncomfortable. Marine gimmick is to be a horny pirate and the sheep sometimes plays a covert pervert. Those are the ones that do that kind of humor.

Coco is also outrageous but due to her background doesn't do that sort of jokes.

For whatever it's worth it's implied that they are talking about manga/eroge/anime characters which is "ok" in nerd culture. Specially Marine, who is a huge otaku.

Watame in that scene says that she worked at a (real) preschool and that she thought the (real) kids were cute in a conversation about whether she is a lolicon. The most generous interpretation is that she just thinks kids are cute and plays it up as a lolicon thing for laughs and not that she actually wants to gently caress children. I think she also mentions in that video that she started wondering if she was a lolicon because she plays short races in MMOs, which presumably does not actually make one a lolicon but I wouldn't know since I only play hot catgirl babes. In conclusion, wish she didn't make that 'joke'.

As for Matsuri, she is just kind of hosed up and its tough to tell what is a gimmick or not.

Matsuri and kagura mea are so far the only vtubers I straight up do not like at all and remove any video of them from my suggestions. I don't know if their kind of behavior and jokes are rare or not I don't watch all that many.

I wonder if the meaning of the word ďloliconĒ in Japanese somehow doesnít refer to being sexually attached to and wanting to molest children, cause thatís the only possible explanation I can think of, and itís a hosed up one.

The whole complex family of words means being in love with X. This can be platonic or sexually, but it's normally implied to be the latter.

It mostly means you're sexually attracted to children and, in real life, people aren't going to joke about it (unless it's some creep we're talking about) . But being online makes people act in weird ways.

It's just that it gets somewhat normalized (specially online) by the ridiculous amount of pedobait material you can buy.

Also, for whatever its worth, girls are more likely to say they like the lolis or shotas. And in this case it may be that they just like cute things.

I like what I've seen of Matsuri, but what the gently caress? I know it's supposed to be 'video game role play anime girl bullshit haha jokes' but Jesus CHRIST that is dark.

hello


Even though vtubers have only exploded in popularity this year, Kizuna Ai and vtubing has been around since 2015. There are bound to be some that you don't like. Manga artists, not just Tamaki, are starting to get into making vtubing avartars and honestly, the ones that have hopped on the quickest seem to be the most degenerate.

They made the Red vs Blue Halo machinima series and then became very big. They made noted fake anime RWBY and swallowed up Pat and Woolie after Super Best Friends Play broke up.
