English Speaking Anime VTubers Are Coming to YouTube

The minds behind the Hololive VTubers are bringing their beloved characters to a wider audience.

CGI anime personalities have been all the rage in recent times. From Vocolaid singers like Hatsune Miku down to virtual YouTubers like Kizuna AI fans of anime can't get enough of these characters. However one of the biggest gripes for international fans is that these characters only spoke Japanese, making it hard to really capture any jokes or references that really require a good understanding of the Japanese language. But it seems that one company has something to bring to the table.

COVER Corporation, the company behind the popular Hololive VTubers that have been making rounds on the net recently, have announced an all new set of VTubers coming soon in a press release on their site. The best part? They all speak English.

Hailing from the worlds of legend, VTubers Mori Calliope, Takanashi Kiara, Ninomae Ina'nis, Watson Amelia, and Gawr Gura are making their debut as part of the Hololive English all-girl VTuber group aimed for English speaking audiences. The girls will start streaming on YouTube Saturday, September 12, and are already active on their respective Twitter profiles.


Mori Calliope


The Grim Reaper's first apprentice. Because the world's medical system advanced so dramatically, she became a VTuber to collect souls. It seems that the lost souls vaporized by the wholesome relationships of VTubers flow through her as well. In the end, she's a gentle-hearted girl whose sweet voice contradicts the morbid things she tends to say, as well as her hardcore vocals.

Takanashi Kiara

An idol whose dream is to become a fast food shop owner. She is a phoenix, NOT a chicken or turkey. (Very important)

She works extremely hard since she will be reborn from ashes anyway.

Ninomae Ina'nis

One day, she picked up a strange book and then started to gain the power of controlling tentacles. To her, tentacles are just a part in her ordinary life; it has never been a big deal for her. However, her girly mind does want to get them dressed up and stay pretty.

After gaining power, she started hearing Ancient Whispers and Revelations. Hence, she began her VTuber activities to deliver random sanity checks on humanity, as an ordinary girl.

Watson Amelia

She heard strange rumors surrounding Hololive online: talking foxes, magical squirrels, superhuman dogs, and more. Soon after beginning her investigation on Hololive, and just out of interest, she decided to become an idol herself! She loves to pass her time training her reflexes with FPS games, and challenging herself with puzzle games.

It's elementary, right?

Gawr Gura

A descendant of the Lost City of Atlantis, who swam to Earth while saying, "It's so boring down there LOLOLOL!" She bought her clothes (and her shark hat) in the human world and she really loves them. In her spare time, she enjoys talking to marine life.
