Kizuna AI Retires

Dec. 7, 2021

Pulling a fraction of their previous number of views, it should perhaps not come as a surprise that the company behind Kizuna AI has finally decided to send this particular “Artificial Intelligence” to the digital graveyard.

That said, while AI is no longer going to be making regular videos, the model is now apparently being repurposed to sell overpriced digital collector’s cards to otakus. How wonderful. Wonder how long until the other ’tuber compaies does the same…? I’m looking at you, Hololive.
