Fubuki and Marine are both promoting a new Sakura Wars mobage and Marine the big Sakura Wars fan was getting all emotional about it.

i like how the timing is right after marine gets introduced to princess connect which features tanaka kohei (sakura wars composer among various other big titles and shows)

he also wrote her a letter of gratitude

its probably worth considering spoiler tags when naming names, some people don't want to hear it or see it disseminated so loosely. but a lot of vtubers' past identities are basically open secrets. especially in hololive most of them come from previous streaming experience and they all had fans who recognized their voices/etc.

its legitimately cool in the sense that vtubing presents a larger platform for these people to just do what they enjoyed doing previously, but now it actually pays the bills rather than just being a hobby stream on niconico.

my favorite kson bit is how she did a bunch of english-teaching streams where she just sprinkles the f bomb onto every sentence. the deadpan delivery of that brand of humor is uncanny.

It gets into what other people were talking about by hiding behind the personality you can maybe cut loose more and be more genuine even though you're playing a character.

absolutely. even coco who seems wild and outgoing by hololive standards is still a self-professed asocial otaku. anyone here has spent time on the internet speaking from behind an avatar and should be able to understand how vtubing brings out a different kind of 'genuine'

tfw you think you're going to be dead weight for a pro twitch streamer but he's your biggest fan instead

it's definitely more complex than that, since alternate identities range from "still streaming on an account whose sub count rose 10x because their vtuber fans are there" to "dead niconico account with the vods left up" to "past content completely scrubbed by the streamer but people saved their stuff and still spread it around".

you could definitely make it a thread rule to just not bring it up (most fansites/subreddits/discords/etc already do this) and again i think in lieu of that, spoiler tagging should be a courtesy to the people who dont want to see it.

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.

there is an assumption often made in well-meaning support of holostars that idol culture is the barrier between them and hololive, which ignores the collabs that actually happen between interested hololivers and that holostars has tons of collabs elsewhere with girls who have no problem with it. an assumption that hololivers are not content with what they have, when you have several girls who have actually talked about not wanting to go through with such a collab. expecting these girls to collab with holostars because its their job is just being weird in the other direction. ive seen roberu comment from the other angle, saying that he gets why they're separate and that from a fan perspective he wouldn't want it otherwise.

matsuri and fubuki are with holostars all the time and we've seen it sparingly from a few others like choco/roboco. after that you can look at countless collabs with nijisanji, voms talent, indies, roberu having his dream talk with everyone's favorite mangaka Pochi,,, holostars are not floating helplessly on an island.

So far only the other EN hololivers have membership tiers, right? IIRC all the Japanese crew is basically 1 tier of perks but you can opt to throw more money at them if you want.

Interesting cultural divide, since most of the HololiveEN crew (+ Artia) are influenced by twitch culture.

haato has the base tier with the emotes, a $7 tier for archived member vids, and a $10 tier she made just to see how many zealots she had
