All I'll say is if you've been feeling stressed, check out Virtual-san, and then check out some of their channels, they're just having fun and it's great.

Also yes, Virtual Gorilla's voice is great. Haaai!

Virtual-San is Looking is so bad but so good at the same time. It just....doesn't care. It's practically well-established VTubers just doing whatever the hell they want in weird circumstances.

I'm still kinda bummed that Kaguya Luna couldn't be brought on. Maybe Pinky Pop Hepburn could take her place on the show instead?

Article speak so much about Kizuna AI. She is not in this anime.
Kizuna AI nowadays is more than a simple Vtuber. (idol?) Rolling Eyes
Quote:
"Much better than it deserves" applies to most of Kizuna Ai's music tbh, like who let her work with Teddyloid?
The same people who let her work with W&W, Yunomi, Taku Takahashi, Pa's Lam, DÉ DÉ MOUSE, Nor, kz. lol

It's funny, I can look at virtual YouTubers and see the exact moment I became an old man and had no idea what the hell kids are doing these days. Laughing

Apparently HIMEHINA had "Anime OP/ED" as one of their landmark goals. Good for them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyOw45II7F0

I've just been falling further and further down the VTuber Rabbit hole tbh. It's entertaining to watch Siro play Dead by Daylight, or raise a rude fish https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQW9ElAqm38. Nekomiya's reactions in PUBG are pretty amusing (and she's good, she won a match with just a handgun) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnfHNU6iej4&t=82s Tanaka Hime and Suzuki Hina have a really entertaining dynamic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22ylwU31Exc

Easily the most Youtube I've watched in forever Anime smile + sweatdrop

I do watch a little bit of Kizuna A.I.

I'm more of a Laki Station fan with her video games.

I started watching Virtual-san Looking because I was a fan of some of the VTubers (the Game Club Project folks, Mirai Akari, and Nekomiya Hinata specifically) and I was expecting it to be a bit more like 2014's Minarai Diva which I really enjoyed. But instead I got a variety of... youtube shitposts crammed into a 24min period, which I didn't think I would be into, but, now, six weeks later, I'm still diligently watching every episode as they come out, so I guess I am kind of into it.

It's also got me more interested in a lot of the other VTubers that I was "meh" about before too. And since I assume that is the Goal of this show, I guess this show is a success, at least with me.

I remember how a year ago I was following just Kizuna Ai and Kaguya Luna. And just that was taking far far too much time and energy. I just have no idea of what it would take to keep up with this myriad of virtual youtubers.
As the adage goes, there are seven vtubers in every grain of rice.
