    I'm hoping it's just something she felt like doing, and eventually will go back to her old models (specifically her pikazilla model) because I like those way better

    The new model was Pikamee's idea. I think she just wanted to do something new.

    He has also made transphobic comments on Twitter and uses ableist slurs on his stream.

    On VTuber news, A-SOUL, the Vtuber group that took over Bilibili after Hololive was kicked out, is now on the middle of imploding because it was discovered that they were going full Black Company:
    A recent dispute between the group and one of its actors revealed some horrendous business practices, including long work hours, terrible copyright laws, and that the actors are only paid 10 cents for each of their $20 subscriptions.

    On May 10th, A-SOUL, released a statement that its member Carol will go on an “indefinite hiatus” due to her "health" and "study" issues.

    On the other side, things are clearly not so simple. Carol, or rather the actor behind this virtual character, began complaining about workplace bullying and an unreasonable salary on her private social media account. This quickly caused an uproar on social media in China, with tons of fans angrily demanding that A-SOUL's parent company, ByteDance, disclose the Vtuber's detailed salary and thoroughly investigate the workplace bullying accusations.
    A-SOUL operates on Bilibili, the largest UGC video platform in China. Bilibili takes 50% of all streamer grossing, including donations and subscriptions. A-Soul takes 99% of the rest, which means for each $20 monthly subscription, Carol’s actor is paid 10 cents or a mere 0.5%

    Carol’s base salary is around $2000, and according to this calculation, her monthly revenue share was only $500-$600, far less than the speculated figure.
    Money was just a part of the problem. Carol once had a severe injury during a stream, and her thigh got cut by a mocap device. She was still forced to finish the livestream, and A-SOUL officials denied that there was anything suspicious about the injury.

    Carol took a break and was off-air for a month in May 2021. During that time, rumors of her trying to expand her career and become an idol, in reality, had been circulating. That rumor was used by A-SOUL management to verbally abuse Carol, commenting on her appearance and threatening to kick her out "and see if she can make it as a real idol" if her livestreaming revenue was too low.

    Jesus. Obviously, people are enraged, and the response of the company was to make a stream where they forced the talents to go full "There's No War in Ba Sing Se" and deny the accusations. That worked as well as you might expect.

    What kind of mocap device would cut you??

    Commercial mocap devices are straps tied to the body:

    Depending on the quality of the straps and how they are adjusted by assistants, well.

    On another theme, Miko's WWE2K22 are the hottest thing on Hololive right now, with a lot of viewers, if only because she recreates Holo members on it (Suisei is fucking savage, as expected). Favorite clip so far is Miko meeting the legend, Deadman, The Undertaker himself:

    You are right Miko, he's really, really cool.

    No music because lol coryright, so have to make do and run the theme on another tab. Is just not the same without it:


    EDIT: Second favorite, very close second, is finding the perfect entrance for Subaru:

    Also sometimes those things do not work well when you've got a bit of chub. Press against anything with enough angular force, like doing a squat or some other deep movement, and it's a question of whether it or your skin will yield first.

    Yeah. Is kinda funny since that's another Undertaker entrance, but Botan pulls it off.

    And here's Subaru admiting that yes, she does move like that:

    Unsurprising. Pekora has always been one of the members that streams the most, specially before reality forced Cover to be more stringent about not letting talents not run themselves ragged. I am surprised that it didn't happened sooner.
