I'm really interested to see how Hololive EN does. When the idea was first proposed, I saw a lot of people saying that the Japanese was part of the fun for them, but when it's a clear option, that may change things. Then again, there are a good number of EN Vtubers, and none have reached close to Hololive numbers.

To be fair there's also a lot of JP vtubers who aren't anywhere close to Hololive numbers either. It's a pretty popular brand.

Nyanners is the exception to every rule, not just the one about EN Vtubers.
Edit: but seriously, Nyanners reading her terrible visual novel is one of the funniest things I've seen on YouTube.

I've kind of wondered how many idol group people end up in same sex relationships out of necessity rather than preference in japan. Since you can basically lose everything if some nerd stalks you and finds out you have a boyfriend or whatever.

Marine talked a little bit about everyone in her all girl christian high school basically doing that because it was impossible to meet boys.

Are we talking about real-life idols? They barely have time to sleep, never mind having relationships, same-sex or otherwise.

And let's just say that their managers are very crafty

This blurb is particularly funny to me

quote:

So when hiring hairstylists and makeup artists, certain talent agencies choose handsome young men for the job, which they feel gets their idolsí hearts ever so slightly aflutter before they go on stage. But wait, isnít there a chance that the hairstylists will fall in love with the idols? Not if the men are gay, which is another characteristic some agencies look for when choosing who to handle their idolsí appearance.

this is a very weird and complicated subject that hinges largely on people's personal sexuality and situations that i'm not sure anyone in this thread is qualified to say anything about. and also why are we bringing it up in this context

you can *meet* boys but its harder to form relationships with them. also its possible marine went to a school with dorms and strict curfews, most 'catholic all girls schools' in japan have that kinda vibe even to this day.

That's fair. I'm used to girls' schools being like in Guatemala, where they're basically just smack in the middle of the city.

yeah the cloistered far off girls school on the hill where no man must enter from 80s shoujo is an obvious exaggeration, but like any exaggeration it has some root in reality
