Mori Calliope: The Humble Pink-Haired VTuber
Mori Calliope is the mother of the deadbeats and one of the most famous VTubers in Hololive EN. She debuted alongside Inonamis Ina, Gawr Gura, Amelia Watson, and Takahashi Kiara.
The pink-haired VTuber is an honest streamer with humble beginnings in the community. Before becoming a VTuber, she was not very in tune with the community. However, she worked hard to become the idol that Hololive wanted while still staying true to herself.
Her first few streams were a bit awkward. That’s because she was unfamiliar with VTubing and anime communities, so she had a lot to learn. However, she had some very nice gaming streams, which were fun to watch even though she is not the best gamer. She loves to learn, and the community loves to watch her fail.
Over time, she gained more security and knowledge, and her peers in her debut generation ensured she was welcomed. Takahashi Kiara, in particular, was in constant touch with her, probably because of her affinity with Mori and also probably because she was subtly teaching Mori how to be an idol in the community.
Mori’s streams were, and still are, very entertaining. She now carries herself differently and has taught herself Japanese. She is more in tune with memes and some anime and is still pursuing a musical career, as she used to dream of becoming a rapper before becoming Mori.
Nowadays, Mori is fun to watch, in my opinion! She is more self-assured and looks more comfortable in her VTuber skin. She has gathered a lot of fans along the way, and one thing I admire about the pink-haired VTuber is that she is very straightforward with her fanbase and calls out what she does not want to see in her chat.
Houshou Marine: The Pink-Haired Pirate VTuber
The pirate of Hololive JP is an incredible streamer and thoroughly entertaining to watch, with a combination of wholesome content and a hint of lewdness. She enjoys interacting with the chat and has collaborated with many of her fellow Hololive and Nijisanji members. In addition to singing slightly risqué songs, she engages in various other activities.
One of the things I appreciate about her streams is that she is just herself, adapting her personality to fit the expectations of Hololive without seeming to force herself into a persona that isn’t genuine. She gets to be provocative with her chat and interactions with her Hololive peers as long as she doesn’t go too far (her manager ensures she stays within appropriate boundaries).
It’s worth noting that the pink-haired VTuber is also a talented artist and often streams late at night with other VTubers, chatting and drawing whatever comes to mind.
In short, if you enjoy watching a playful and humorous pirate with a wholesome heart and a mischievous streak, I highly recommend giving her streams a try if you haven’t already.
Iron Mouse: The Iconic Pink-Haired VTuber
Iron Mouse is a very special VTuber. She has a rare disease that makes it difficult for her to lead a normal life. However, she is the most upbeat and funny and truly deserves the title her chat often gives her: “gremlin.”
She is one of the VTubers that I usually watch, especially during her collaborations with CdawgVA, which are either hilarious to watch, like their gameplays, or amazingly wholesome, as he is a friend like no other to her. He streams some of the trips he takes around Japan and collaborates with Iron Mouse to show her around the town, and they are just entirely awesome to watch.
They are like two best friends banter while playing a co-op game. Watching them play and treat each other like true best friends is very enjoyable.
Iron Mouse is a streamer who does a wide range of streams. She sings, talks with chat, and has numerous upgrades and versions of her model. The pink-haired VTuber has amazing collaborations with Nyanners, Snuffy, and other VTubers as well.
If you haven’t watched this tungsten rat at her best, I highly recommend that you do.
For those of you who may not be familiar, Nyanners has been on YouTube since 2011, before she became a VTuber. Her content was quite varied, consisting mostly of meme videos but also small gameplays, song covers with her unique twist, and references to doujins, among other things.
When the VTuber trend emerged, Nyanners decided to focus her efforts on becoming one of the best. The pink-haired VTuber already had somewhat of an audience and was eventually scouted by VShojo.
VShojo is a VTuber agency with which she is still affiliated today.
Nyanners is known for her entertainment value and tendency to be quite lewd. That’s true, especially when she is in the company of other VTubers such as IronMouse, Rainhoe, Snuffy, and others. Watching them all shriek in terror over Nyanners’ one-upping of lewd comments made on stream can be quite amusing.
About a year after she became a VTuber, Nyanners gained a million subscribers. The feat is impressive, considering how difficult it is to reach this milestone.
Nyanners is also a variety streamer with engaging content. These streams include collaborations, the gameplay of games such as Final Fantasy XIV and Dark Souls, and even some IRL streams. She is always fun to watch!
Nyanners is probably the weirdest VTuber I have come across (in a good way). She does whatever comes to mind and often says what is on her mind without much of a filter, which makes her all the more unique and enjoyable to watch.
Kira is a sweet and angelic rabbit who loves to bring wholesomeness into the world. She tends to be airheaded, often followed by a moment of silence and a cute laugh to dismiss this. Despite her pure appearance, she sometimes acts like a cute demon, threatening to take people’s snack supplies.
Her model is well-made and conveys the cuteness and softness of her voice in her streams. In a way, her streams are similar to Watame’s. They both have a cute and pleasant vibe but can sometimes be threatening.
Kira mainly streams on Twitch and less on YouTube. Her channel is more dedicated to her consistent ASMR streams. The pink-haired VTuber also streams games such as Genshin Impact, Minecraft, Skyrim, and Ori.
She is also very interested in creating ASMR content, as some of her streams are focused on ASMR triggers and other situations where she can create ASMR.
If you enjoy a soft voice whispering sweet ASMR and talking to chat, she is a great person to listen to and watch when she is playing. With a clumsy personality and an angelic voice, she is sure to provide a unique and enjoyable experience.
