I also tried my hand at making a translated clip. May or may not make a habit of it. Anyway I liked this little introspective talk so I decided to sub it.

She's got like 600,000 subscribers, too. I don't know why so few of them are foreigners.

I've seen a bit of hers where she blames it on the lack of doujinshi about her and, in her broken English, tries to demand that her foreign fans (all three of us) draw more porn of her.

That's her problem. You can't connect with international fans if you insist on working blue like that. If you want to make it overseas, you have to be pure as the driven snow, like Kiryu Coco.

i watched the human centipede with mito. she also had a good recent fall guys stream where she did a new char impression per run and two of those runs were a farting pikachu. well, that about sums up what watching mito is like.

Mito also has some of my favorite out-of-context clips. I can't explain why, I think it's just that she's got comedic timing perfected down to the millisecond, so even a weird or dorky joke just lands perfectly.

Most people don't know this, but when you start vtubing, you actually have to get your stage name approved by the International Association of Vtubers, and only certified master comedians are allowed to theme themselves after rabbits.

Stamina bar that's expended at the bare minimum of physical effort is a good touch.

I haven't been paying much attention to them, but I feel like the only 5th gen I care about is Botan, mostly because she actually has an interest in something (pcmasterrace). Do the other 4 3 have something going for them from that angle or do they mostly just play Fall Guys and Minecraft?

I like Botan the most because her facerig is the best out of all of them and so she’s very expressive and easy to watch.

Polka is hilarious as I posted above.

Lame and Nene I don’t know much about.

Polka is my favorite 5th gen just for pure chaotic energy, but Botan is a lot of fun too. She's basically a hardcore PC gamernerd as a vtuber, and who couldn't relate to that?

Lamy and Nene are nice too and I'll watch them on collabs sometimes with Polka and Botan, but I've got too many other streamers to watch right now.

Hololive EN isn't going to make this any easier.

They others are not supposed to be gamers so they just play whatever games are popular for streaming purposes since they are a good, easy way to create content. Besides that it's still a bit to early to tell since they are still playing their intended character so who knows how are they going to develop.

Polka is a bit too overengineered with the props, noises, and other "forced" stuff (I guess I don't like her gimmick) so I don't enjoy her channel that much. But she's smart and has experience so I bet she'll improve her act quite a bit.

Lamy is kinda stuck on her nice mama character.

Nene is dumpling lady and about as interesting as a dumpling.

Give them time and some collabs with the Gens 3 & 4 to evolve their chars.

Nene's ad-lib songs for the others are pretty cute. Botan's adopted "La Lion (clap clap-clap)" as a thing for her own channel.

Also her shtick of being the perpetual bully victim is kind of endearing. Also Marine thought her character design was a dumpling ghost, which lmao

While all of Holofive are great, Polka is just Coco and Pekora's secret love child, and I cannot comprehend not loving her.

maybe discoverability? she uses zero english unless it's a song title pretty much. lack of simpability (lol) maybe? She like a lot of top niji streamers pretty much don't use superchat (apparently?) at all. IDK. She has a lot of draw i think to western audiences being a pretty great comedic talent.

edit: though maybe that's not what westerners want? IDK. comedy is pretty much what i enjoy the most about the hololive streamers. though pekora also hits other good vibes.

Yeah, out of HoloFive, Botan and Lamy have pretty much found a niche and firmly established their personalities, while Nene and Polka are still kinda out there.

Botan is, of course, the PC gaming lion, who builds her own computers, is skilled at FPSes and has opinions about things like keyboards, mouses, graphic cards, etc. She also talked about how she loves Civilization series and how she hopes she will be able to set-up a Civilization multiplayer streams with other Hololive members, which is honestly something I want to see.

Lamy got basically pigeonholed the second she spoke, because she has voice that is perfect for motherly, caring character, which is good, because that's exactly who she is. You either like that kind of archetype in which case you will probably love her or you don't care/hate it, in which case she doesn't offer much else. She is great in collabs though, because she is basically perfect straight man, eternally tolerant, if slightly worried, about antics of basically every other Holofive members. Also really bad at horror games and really good chemistry with Botan.

Nene, meanwhile has adorable personality, great chemistry with other members in collabs, is pretty good singer, can draw good...ish and can be a surprisingly competent gamer but kinda struggles with finding her own niche. People seem to love bullying her and she is both adorable and a good sport about it, so she might be on something there... But she is definitely the one member of Holofive whose personality has yet to fully develop.

And Polka is a chaos gremlin and has shades of Pekora, Miko, Coco, Haachama and Marine, depending on how she feels today. However I agree with trucutru in that both her character and her act are a bit over-designed and while every Vtuber ends being a composite of the character and the person behind it, Polka feels that she is still like 90-95% acting, so I feel she is still far from fully developed character. That being said, she has pretty incredible range, does a lot of interesting, unexpected stuff like when she read those bedtime horror(?) stories and while some of her streams have been misses for me, when she hits, she hits hard.

pekora back to xenoblade again today. i noticed she played like 5 or 6 hours off stream based on the save time lol

also mito's reaction to having her stream shut down by youtube due to lewdness while it was happening is pretty gold

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIN4vdVlzJA

her monologue to youtube at the end as pure spontaneous comedy is really good

she also has some very wholesome moments
