After consuming a lot of vtuber content over the last few days Pekora is probably my favorite hololive streamer.

I found a stream vod on youtube if pekoras old character/stream on niconico. It's .. pretty much what I expected. Very similar air but the chara is different obviously. Also she did some live stuff. At least kinda.

Obviously it's not 100% and never been confirmed but uhh it sounds just like her and the laugh is unmistakable. Id like it but idk that people want to see it.

is this based on some arbitrary definition of "paid"? cause I'm drewscanlon.gif over here. Ninja or someone else got paid like $20 million usd last year to stream on mixer. I have a sneaking suspicion that Coco doesn't make $20,000,000 a year.

Japan has no fair use laws. Most companies allow independent streamers to stream their stuff, but since Hololive is corporate they have to go and get permission to stream.

gotcha makes sense. Kinda seemed like in the past with japanese stuff (like doujinshi fan fiction etc) that it was kinda "better to ask for forgiveness"

I watched some stream where they put everyone on a otaku not otaku chart. I think it was listed here earlier.


Anyway, they put Pekora on the firmly not otaku side.

She seems like an enormous nerd and given how often she talks about never going outside (before the pandemic) and relationship with her mom she almost comes off as a hikki.

Yeah, Towa was the Vtuber that got into trouble because there was a ~male voice~ at the end of one of her streams and she panicked and lied that it was a CoverCorp employee. The result was a nice little harassment campaign, CoverCorp forcing her to do a public apology and her Japanese viewer count tanking. The whole thing is a reminder that despite everything, Vtubers (or at least Hololive Vtubers) are not that far off from idols, at least as far as Japanese audience is concerned.

At the same time, she got boost of popularity from foreign viewers, which together with the drop from Japanese viewers lead to her being the Hololive member with the highest ratio of foreign viewers/subscribers/superchats, etc. She is not as clippable as someone like Pekora or Haachama, but she is pretty chill and a legit good FPS player, so I recommend watching her stream sometimes. The chat is like 80% English too.
Ah I read about that but didn't realize it was towa. I feel bad for these people tbh. Idol poo poo in japan is honestly pretty gross and so incredibly controlling.

Re: watame. I noticed in the video they did the other day of her and amane doing karaoke that amane consistently lined up the mic with basically her upper chest which leads me to believe she is considerably shorter than her model lol

Which is wild because her model is 4 10 at least in description. Idk if their character heights actually line up with their models height.

Lurking Haro posted:

Watame is supposed to be an inch taller than Kanata, that's why I complained about the scale.
Kanata holding the mic to her throat means the model's proportions are off compared to the real person. Think about it as a person in a mascot costume.
Might be a combination of longer legs, high heels and a bigger head on the model. Or she has a voice box in the throat, explaining her VA skills.


I hope she keeps playing it. It's good Japanese practice for me!

Yeah, the way she held the mic with the end pointing up is typical if you hold the mic itself at a downward angle slightly above or just at mouth level.

Anyway my guess is that the models don't necessarily fit the 'height' of the characters in the bios. Or make is just really tiny which of course could be.

It just shows the last two hours of the stream and happens for whatever reason sometimes when you're logged on and the stream has been recently archived. I found out that if logged out I could see streams in their entirety (or open it in a private window, etc.)

A couple of Pikamee's streams like a month back did that to me and just arbitrarily fixed themselves later on. One of which I got to the last two hours of, then switched back to my logged in account just to be able to close a tab, only to have the video buffer at some point and continue me from the timestamp I was at but at the full stream so I was a couple hours behind after a random buffer.

Weird. I'll try relogging on the youtube app.

Relinking it on the PS4 app worked. Nice. Ty!

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.

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.

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.
