I loved Aloe-sama from Day 1 and as soon as she was able to tweet I set her on all notifications and followed her close. (For context, she was banned from tweeting in less than hour due to an age error). Since she had restrictions for a bit, a lot of jokes were made about her but she took it all in stride and even shared a lot of memes. She got my heart quickly with her positive attitude on Twitter.

Then today her voice was exactly what I expected and was hoping lol. A nice amount of smug. Adorable tone. Fun singing. Great music taste. I really hope she stays in character as much as possible. A TRUE IDOL demon girl would be really amazing. She's obviously a sweetheart, too. This Gen is gonna be a blast but Aloe-sama is my favorite

She also said she likes Charlotte! So +100 there

Anyway, here's Aloe's debut video from this morning! She's amazing!!!

edit: while I'm at it, here's Polka's that airs tomorrow morning (for US)

Edit: fixed Polka link. Her original stream got bugged so she had to remake it

This is not a knock on them as individuals, but I don't think there character designs are as good as the previous generations. They look like generic rares in an anime card game.

I mean Botan is just Siege from mobile game Arknights. Who was voiced by the same voice as Saber from Fate. It's so close that I've had people felt a discrepency because the two's behavior aren't close enough.

Anyway I have notifications for all 5 of them.

It doesn't matter that much tho - you get used to designs pretty fast if there's something else besides good looking sprites.

And that's what matters in the end. Hololive is so popular because of the personalities. They've all now debuted and shown to be at the least pretty interesting lol. We'll see how it holds up!
