Where To Find Indie VTuber Groups
Indie VTubers are more fun to watch as they have no filters and are creatively more independent. They don’t have managers always breathing down their necks, so they end up doing the most spontaneous and funny things during their streams. They often form groups to make the collabs easier and to have each other’s backs.
However, these indie VTuber groups are hard to find due to their low popularity compared to the famous VTuber agencies. We have compiled a list to help you find these indie VTuber groups and their members.
But first, let’s discuss what we even count as an indie VTuber group!

What Is An Indie VTuber Group & How Is It Different Than A VTuber Agency?
Indie VTuber groups consist of members who are independent VTubers. They are self-managing and do all the legwork in the back end for their streams. The back-end work involves getting sponsors, setting up collaborations, managing their finances, and much more.
The members are usually friends who want to form an identity for themselves. They usually aren’t bound by any contracts, which is one of the many reasons for the high failure rate of professional VTuber agencies.
Another benefit is that they don’t have to pay any managers or CEOs, so they keep most of the money they make. But on the down side, because of that they often have difficulties setting up collabs and getting sponsors, compared to famous VTuber agencies like Hololive, Nijisanji, and Vshojo.
However, being a part of an indie VTuber agency clearly has its perks. You get to be more independent with your content ideas, and you don’t need to have any filters while streaming. That makes your streams more fun and engaging for your viewers.
You also have the assurance that you’re not getting exploited by a corporation. And believe me, many fans watch indie VTubers just because of that.
With all that out of the way, let’s move on to our list of indie VTuber groups!
