It will be interesting to see who the most popular is. We are less than a day in, and the top one already has more Twitter followers than some of the Hololive Singapore idols.

I want Gawr's sweater. It's hella cute.

(Also, it's good to hear Hololive is taking their recent issues with harassment seriously. Hopefully no one else will have to go through what Aloe had to deal with.)

They only went live on Twitter a short time ago, and already every single one of them is memeing up the place. They all have a good sense of humor too, so I'm interested to see what their debuts will be like.

It also looks like they're all bilingual in English and Japanese. I wonder what kind of accents they'll have...?

Kiara hasn't debuted and I already want a collab with her and Polka.

Likewise, Kiara and Altera have huke as as their character illustrator.

So.... Takanashi Kiara started out her livestream by basically shouting the Norwegian version of the onomatopoeia "cock-a-doodle-do". Or so I thought, but the Japanese version is apparently "kikkeriki"? That's unnervingly similar. ^^;;

I mean, Huke is a popular artist, and fgo's Altera doesn't seem to have anything else in common with Kiara the phoenix idol.
Kuroboshi's fgo characters, meanwhile, are Katsushika Oui/Cthulhu, Abigail Williams/Yog-Sothoth and Yang Guifei/Cthugha...
There's no way they weren't inspired by fgo

She is a native German speaker and they say "kickeriki".
I love how that Cally changes it into "Kicky Ricky" to tease her.
