    Also not every Vtuber needs some epic lore kayfabe.

    Actually though it'd be kind of hilarious if there was a Vtuber with some bigshot backstory that ends with them choosing to instead be a convenience store worker or something.

    Isn't that kind of what Kiara did with her backstory?


    Also, is A-chan in front of her keyboard and desk there? :D

    A-chan's story and s always interesting to me because of how she started being an online persona because in the very early days, Sora couldn't stop looking at/speaking to her whenever she was in the studio, so they gave her a face and voice and eventually a model as a representative of the staff.

    People really underestimate how much keeping the aesthetic themes simple helps things for a VTuber, you don't need to go over the top and, in fact, is helpful if you don't.

    I don't think this is a fundamental truth, there are plenty of vtubers that go ridiculous and are better for it, but it's definitely true that there's plenty of space for more straightforwaed and chill folks as well for sure

    A-Chan is getting some merch for her birthday, one item is a T-Shirt labeled "Overtime Spirit". Can we... not? I sincerely hate these, "lol, we are overworking people for the benefit of our corporation ""jokes."" That's not a joke, that's an admission that your workplace is toxic.

    that thing is, of course, insane Pomu Discord arguments

    I mean yes, but they've made that joke like every time A-chan appears on screen for years.

    There's just something perverse about the company making money on selling fun merch about how charming it is that this real life person is overworked. I don't blame A-Chan for making jokes about it because people always make jokes and complain about their work. I blame the work culture for being like that and the fan culture for attempting to make the CEO a fun cartoon character and A-Chan doing the work of 5 people "lore" instead of like... really shitty working conditions.

    Bae's concert was superb, with camera work that wildly outdoes the angles at the paid concerts that cost entirely too much to see at this point.

    She also released a new original song.

    Just kidding... a new album, with 13 (!) new songs! That's nuts...

    Also bday merch.

    And because she's nuts, she's signing EVERY complete set, not just a limited set that will sell out instantly. She's... going to die.

    Honestly I do like a bunch of the "grander" things as long as it's not super complicated.

    Like, Council is grand as fuck but at the end of the day they're conceptually super simple. Mother Nature. God of Space. Chaos. Time. Simple and intuitive stuff fans can meme out of.

    I'd argue there is a range and much of it is largely carried by the ability of the people behind the characters. Also we shouldn't discount the audience because sometimes what someone wants is a down to earth character with a mundane background.

    Shibuya Hal's lore started with him as a convenience store clerk and now he is the CEO or his own VTuber agency and streamer for an e-sports group.

    Remember when Niji management told Selen she couldn't have graduated members appear in the MV for her cover song? Cause they don't.

    Their claim is that it would require special/ additional approval, not that it was forbidden outright. The unbelievable part is that this topic was not discussed until Xmas Eve. Selen had already had several projects pushed back for approval issues (including that song!), so I find the assertion that they (Niji Management) saw any part of the video for the first time on that day COMPLETELY unbelievable.

    First song, Biboo sings I Miss You in a British accent for some reason. This is the kind of Karaoke I am here for.

    I guess somebody at Sony asked why they have so many different vtuber-projects.
