This is really good stuff. Ichikara keeps on being on top of the game as an organization. Doxing & harrassment will happen again, and I don't feel Cover handled Aloe, or other kinds of incidents well.
I'm not trying to start a Nijisanji vs Hololive-thing here, talking purely about the companies.

Nijisanji has had alot of problems with doxxing also so its not really like they're trying to own Cover or anything, this is like the bare minimum that a vtuber agency should do for their members so its good that someone is trying to protect their talent

Haachama has several "cooking" videos where she does terrible things to food while another Vtubers who is supposed to tutor her becomes increasingly confused and horrified and they are all comedy gold.

Fell into the hole about a month ago, my open tabs are now a mess of youtube links thanks to this thread.

I remembered this quote from The Colonel a while back in the chat thread and I wanted to repost it here because I thought it was cool:

The Colonel posted:

even before kizuna ai was worked as a marketing tool for nazi bitcoin i don't think her output was generally as personal and interesting as a lot of modern vtubers because she was simply built from the ground as a corporate marketing thing whereas modern vtubers, beyond their identity as streamers, are just like. people. like korone will just marathon segagaga or dragon's lair or klonoa because she wants to and she has genuinely interesting thoughts on the games she plays. marine will just play random-rear end dating sims cause it's what she does. even the ones who mostly play more current and popular stuff are just more genuine and fun to watch. kizuna ai's output was never as varied as a lot of modern vtubers because she was just inherently more manufactured and mostly gained attention for being the first big one

Something I've noticed about hololive is that I don't think I've heard of any of them getting motion sickness when using VR or playing first-person games. One of the reasons I've heard FPS games never took off in Japan (correct me if I'm wrong, this is hearsay from ages ago) is because more of the population are susceptible to motion sickness that FPS games can easily trigger. Meanwhile the hololives are regularly playing VR games that tend to make almost anyone motion sick after a short time and are also catching on to FPS games like Apex and DOOG.

Botan especially seems to be especially unique in that she's even pretty good at FPS games and can even play well while being entertaining for the stream. It's pretty cool how many game genres at least someone in the group is pretty good at.

Like a year ago I felt vaguely disdainful toward the whole virtual youtuber phenomenon but didn't really know why. Fast forward to now and I'm picking up Japanese language study again so I can listen to more of these goofballs.

It was much easier to be disdainful a year or two ago when the majority of vtuber content was that super slick over produced prerecorded 5-10 minute skits with the kind of inscrutable comedy you see on a Japanese variety show. Like I watched a fair amount of Kizuna Ai back then and still watch pretty much everything Kaguya Luna and Himehina put out, but what people are doing now is an extremely different scene than it was not too long ago.

I keep wanting to get into more vtuber stuff. I regularly think about horrible things Matsuri has said and lose my poo poo. I have no idea why this stuff is so entertaining, but I want to get deeper.

Yeah that's what really surprised me when I fell in mid July. These people are really pouring a whole lot of themselves into the characters, to the extent I think some of the "new-style" vtubers are in fact more real than many of the reaction-cam streamers. The vtubers are wearing an avatar as a mask and using a character voice, but I think that really allows them to put more of their real personality into it all, as the mask insulates their vtuber identity from their offline identity.

Thank you for listening to my TED talk.

I had the idea to make a thread about this a few days ago but I wasn't sure how it would go so I decided not to.

Glad someone else did.

Korone, Pikamee, Coco are my favs. I really love how Coco has really destroyed the "idol" image for Hololive. There's a video where she's discussing how she doesn't take any poo poo from staff and how she knows she has power and uses it. She's cool
