Hailing from the US, Shoto’s English skills are on point, given his American upbringing, though his Vietnamese isn’t as fluent since he’s spent most of his life stateside.

As for his background, Shoto’s a mix of cultures; he was born and raised in the US, where he also finished high school. The details on his higher education? That’s a mystery, as Shoto’s all about keeping his personal life hidden. But we’ll share everything there’s to know about his past life later in the article, so read on!

His real name is also still hidden, but mark your calendars for July 24—that’s when this Leo celebrates his birthday. And in case you were wondering, Shoto’s a catch—currently flying solo after a past relationship—but hey, who knows what the future holds?

His Personality

Shoto is known for his good-boy personality and soothing voice. He often acts like a puppy, imitating its actions and talking sweetly. So he is called “dog boy” or “good boy” at times. His dog-like ears, tail assets, and puppy-like behavior make him adorable. Shoto’s softer side is what makes him stand out among other VTubers.

Despite his sweet nature, Shoto also has a beautiful voice, which is capable of putting people in a tranquil state. His voice is incredibly pleasant and gives off an ASMR-like feeling.

He is so good at utilizing his voice in RPGs,’ and while playing horror games, Shoto has also mastered the art of producing high-pitched screams to make his viewers happy when he gets frightened while playing games. Without a doubt, Shoto is an incredible singer; many of his song covers are available on his YouTube channel.

Shoto is found bantering with Guildies at times. His fans tease and bully him on almost every stream, although it is in good fun. When fans tease him, he responds by calling them bratty or mean. Despite all the banter, Shoto knows how to keep a check on his audience before things get messy. His VTuber model has some expressions to display his disgust towards some things that his fans say to him.

His Virtual Appearance

Shoto has majestic, dark blue eyes and dark purple hair. His avatar wears a purple jacket; the hoods are coffins that have a light yellow-colored outline. Shoto’s attire also consisted of a turtleneck, which he embellished with two gold chains and a necklace.

For his second outfit, he opts for a black jacket with a blue lining inside. His hair color is still dark purple, and his eyes dark blue. Beneath the jacket, he wears a purple gradient shirt. His pants are light gray with a leather strap to hold a knife on his left leg. This dress code comes with grey and purple sneakers.

His third attire is somewhat different from the other two dresses. For his spring costume, he chose a lighter purple shade for his hair and eyes. He has two dark-colored clips on his hair. This particular avatar wears glasses and an earning of cherry blossom shaped on his left ear.

His apparel consists of a shirt with purple flowers and a grey V-neck under it. Shoto accessorizes his garb with a silver pendant with a dagger shape. He opts for an oversized brown coat along with grey boots. He also wears a black ring, a gold wreath ring, and a silver bracelet.

Shoto’s Past Life

Shoxto was previously Seto (Justin), who also happened to be an active singer. He created his Twitter account in April 2015; Shoto was using his original Twitter account, which changed midway from @kohakselo to @shoxto.

Even the oldest video posted on his YouTube was from July 30, 2016, and it has now been removed. It was a debut in collaboration with Hikaru; it was called (Brother-Sister Act) Ver Hikaru x Seto.

Seto started his activities as a streamer on Twitch for the first time on December 7, 2019, by posting a test strum. He also streamed League of Legends that day for about 4-5 hours, and around nine people watched it.

He continued streaming, and the number of viewers increased to about 100 a year later, in December 2020. Later, in October 2021, when he started working as a VTuber, the number of viewers rose to 1,000. When his collaboration with Nijisanji began, this number exceeded 5000; on other days, it was 10,000.

Since both Seto and Shoto have incredible voices and are amazing singers, we can conclude that both are the same person. Another reason we believe Seto is Shoto now is because the Twitter account Shoto is using was previously named “kohakuseto.” and was used by Seto.

Based on the above references and proof. We come to the conclusion that Shoto was, in fact, Justin / Seto in his past life. Shoto’s age was revealed on his Twitter account; he is 24 years old and was born on July 4, 1999.

That’s all, folks!


Beyond my knack for writing great content, I'm also a massive VTuber fan! There's something about the virtual world that has me hooked—watching VTubers stream games, getting entertained by their shenanigans, and connecting with their audience is awesome. When I'm not busy spending hours going over a single paragraph to find the right sentence that just ties the whole thing together (if you are a writer, you'd know the struggle is real), you'll likely catch me chilling out, watching my favorite VTubers do their thing.
