NIJISANJI's 4th English-speaking VTuber group "Luxiem" debuts on Monday

NIJISANJI English announced its fourth Virtual YouTuber group "Luxiem" on Wednesday. It is the agency's first English-speaking group of male performers. Its members are Ike Eveland, Mysta Rias, Vox Akuma, Luca Kaneshiro, and Shu Yamino. Their social media accounts and YouTube channels launched on the same day.

Further information about each debuting talent is as follows:

Ike Eveland is "a Novelist from the past who seems somewhat closed-off. When an idea for his next work sparks, he becomes a completely different person."

Mysta Rias is "a Detective from the past known for his eccentric nature. As a natural-born genius, he solved countless mysteries with his keen deduction skills."

Vox Akuma is "a Demon from the past who held great power. Though confident in his superhuman abilities, he looks after those who are loyal to him."

Luca Kaneshiro is "a Mafia boss from the past with a slight temper. Always down for a fight, whether it's to show-off his own strength or to protect the weak."

Shu Yamino is "a sorcerer from the past with mysterious abilities. Though kind-hearted, he can call down a malediction upon those who wrong him."

The guys will hold their first livestreams and reveal their debut single via the "Party time with「Luxiem」♪ NIJISANJI EN VTuber Debut Program hosted by Elira & Oliver!" stream on NIJISANJI's official English YouTube channel on the following time and date:
