Rushia Got Rushied Out

Fandead turned Fansad as Uruha Rushia’s termination has been announced by Cover Corp. Just in case there’s anyone in the vtuber-fandom sphere that hasn’t heard about it already, the story begun during a stream where Rushia got a message from another online personality by the name of Mafumafu. The message which read something along the line of “[…] I’m coming home now.” So, just how is that controversial or problematic? Well, rabid incels who believe their favorite streamer actually loves them because they buy lots of their stuff and donate “reds” think so.

Kizuna AI Retires

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…?

VSho[u]?jo vs Nuzlocke Taco

I should start off this post by saying that I don’t actually give much of a crap about any of the “talents” that this company employs, nor do I care for Nux’s persona or his content. With that said, I can’t help but want to side with the Taco on this one. For one, every single claim that the company and its “talents” has made doesn’t add up, and considering a certain character’s historic statements on him, and their position within the company, I really do feel like she might’ve had something to do with it all.

Virtual YouTuber Suzuhara Lulu Retires

To the great surprise of many a weeb, Nijisanji’s Suzuhara Lulu (鈴原るる) has, with rather short notice, announced that she will be graduating on June 30th, 2021. Suzuhara Lulu has been quite successful, reaching over 500k subscribers on YouTube since her launch back in May 2019. Her lore is that she hails from a honorable family origin, a bit of a sheltered girl, currently attending an all-girls university as a second-year student.

Coco Went Gogo

Kiryuu Coco will be “graduating” from COVER Corporation’s VTuber agency, Hololive, on June 1st, 2021. The reason for this couldn’t possibly be that COVER “please let us keep our Chinese money” Corporation finally bent the knee, right? Nah, actually, it’s probably just that she finally had enough of the commies shitting things up constantly. No person would be able to keep up with rabid freaks like them hounding you constantly.
