What IS a Vtuber?
Virtual Youtubers (Vtubers) can be many things, but broadly speaking they are entertainers that use virtual avatars to represent themselves in their video content. They do all kinds of things, like playing video games, creating music and art, dancing, talking, singing, and much more!
Where can I find Vtubers?
They usually host their content on popular video sites, and some sites dedicated specifically to them. The most active places to find them would be Youtube
Here are some questions you can answer if you so choose to start the discussion:
-Who is your Oshi? (favourite Vtuber)
-Where did you hear of Vtubers?
-Do you have any favourite clips you'd like to share?
The first Vtuber I really liked was Inugami Korone
Corp. I caught a clip
of her playing DOOM 2016 which eventually went on to become a viral meme of sorts. (Chainsaw, WOWOWOW!) I had seen Live2D animated characters before, but I had never seen them used during a livestream before so I was drawn in by my curiosity pretty quickly. At the time, there weren't an abundance of English Vtubers (at least not many that I found) but eventually the MYTH girls debuted
and from that moment on I was hooked. I've been watching Vtubers ever since!
I just finished watching Korone's Fireworks Mania stream, here's a clip of it that I found pretty hilarious:
While Korone still holds a dear place in my heart, nowadays I've been spending a vast majority of my time watching Pomu Rainpuff

I am a huge fan of Metal Gear Solid, and she recently finished playing through the entire series
on stream, it was a blast watching her start out as completely new to the series to eventually falling in love with the games and it's characters. It might sound stupid but I feel like we went through a journey together and it was special for a lot of people (including me!).
Here's one of my favourite clips where her fanbase got the voice actors for Solid Snake and Otacon to make a birthday message for Pomu!
I look forward to hearing everyone talk about Vtubers!
