Did she really? That sucks. As nice as being an internet anime girl celebrity must be, it must also be difficult to have whole swathes of people who really want to get at you.
Shit, I'd heard about that when it first happened, but I didn't know she was still getting harassed for it. I haven't actually seen the clip or anything, but from what I heard she didn't even actively talk about Taiwan at all, she just showed a screenshot from her Youtube analytics which listed Taiwan as a country.
I remember the whole Taiwan debacle, you'd think it would have died down after they nuked the whole CN branch but it's lame that it hasn't. Saw that clip of her crying to Kanata so I'm glad she's getting support from her coworkers, and she has no shortage of fans who'll support her.>>2022
That's about the gist of it. Cover is a dumb company so they stupidly capitulated to the outrage by making a big apology about offending China and banning her for a few weeks and firing all their Chinese Vtubers. I feel like the saying "give an inch, take a mile" applies here. If there's still organized trolling campaigns going on, surely it would have been better for Cover to just ignore the outrage instead of giving it a reaction.
Eh it's a sensitive topic and it makes sense they'd be pissed off
If you labelled those northern islands of Japan as belonging to Russia, or labelled Northern Ireland as part of Ireland, people in those respective places would be pissed too.
Surprised that Youtube labels Taiwan as a separate country, though. I guess it's not clear what it is, but it doesn't have a seat in the UN nor does it have participation in a bunch of international stuff so it's not a country, but it's also not de facto part of China so…?
To be clear I don't know shit about international politics, and I can totally understand being offended or upset by something like that. But what I don't understand is punishing your talent for an honest oversight that clearly wasn't meant to offend anyone, nor do I get why you'd set up coordinated mass trolling campaigns against someone who meant no harm or offense to anyone via what they've done.
I'm almost entirely sure that the company doing it is an attempt at damage control in the hopes that the chinks won't boycott their shit
Unfortunately it didn't work but this is pretty par for the course when it comes to companies.
Shit. I always got the impression that GYARI took a pretty hands-off approach to managing VOMS too, so either I was wrong or whatever Monoe did was really serious.
If nothing else, what Pikamee says at around the 9:15 mark heavily implies that Monoe is planning on continuing to stream under a different name, so I hope she ends up being successful with that.
Never heard of her, but she's cute
The fact that she opened the pornhub links to "make sure" is the best part.
I'm more into their brother group, Holostars. Hololive, but all-boys. They're actually far more idol-like than the current Hololive girls. While they're still counts as chaotic vtubers, they only thread on the "safe chaos" zone unlike the girls due to a backlash back then where Hololive fans were afraid their idols would have to god forbid, interact with males, because now there are male idols in HoloPro.
For Hololive, I love Nene. She's hyper, and I love it. Mori's songs are bangers, but I don't really watch her.
Outside HoloPro, I'd either watch Pikamee or Pochimaru-sensei (Ane Naru Mono/Okaasan Online author). Pikamee speaks English so she's great for people who can't speak Japanese, while for Pochimaru, it's just so chill watching her draw (also she's so proud of HoloID's Reine, whose avatar is drawn by her).
Cool fellow Pikamee fan. I'm glad she's back to streaming.
I pretty much only watch VOMS and a few indies right now but HoloEN is cool too. Pika is my #1 though.
I've watched a bit of Amelia and Gura, mostly as background noise, I don't mind them. I don't know Japanese and they seem like prime background noise for me so watching the Japanese ones are a bit of an issue, although I've seen small clips of them from other channels that make them.
So apparently Coco is "graduating" at the beginning of next month. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that her personal channel has been getting a lot more subscribers lately. Maybe she wants to start focusing on that instead.
Yes. Even without insider information in the picture, it seems pretty obvious what this was motivated by. As English speakers we generally don't see the bulk of the Chinese-speaking fallout, but it's very much there.
I do think it's worth taking solace in the fact that Coco's streams have been successful for a long time, so at the very least, her career isn't over. I find myself worrying a bit over the "vtuber bubble", but it's situations like these that provide at least a bit of assurance that it's possible for streamers to diversify after time spent vtubing.
No, vtubers are just dirty 3dpd trying to replace true anime girls
Watching them quite a bit in recent times.
New VOMS members are getting revealed in about 4 hours! I'm happy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xV_2aBUMIJA>>3078
I ended up getting my wish, she's been using classic Pika a lot more lately. I love that kettle.
I wasn't expecting a boy, not complaining though I don't really like his design. I wonder if it will bring some fujo audience to VOMS
The water monster is very cute! As expected neither of the new members speak English but I'll still give them a watch from time to time even if I barely understand.
I love the new designs! The guy seems a little disparate from the 3 girls, but he has a unique look. I hope both of them do well!
I'm excited to see their debuts (and for Pika to have two more people to call into her stream for support lol)
i think vtubers are kinda cyberpunk if you think about it. They are literally using technology to hide there identity behind an avitar they control.
Are there any that don't put on a really high pitched 'anime' voice? I like the concept but find that part unbearably annoying
Vtubers are very diverse, so you'll have to be more specific about what you want in a streamer.
There are a lot of them, even in corporate groups like Hololive.
