https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIFIr14SV3Uarupapa nier automata, he's nearing the end of route c/d for reference
>>33295914Who do you think he will choose first 9S or A2
Just found this clip. Its cool that he was being open about it. https://twitter.com/chloe_961/status/1324161618565951488?s=19
Aruran is going to have choose...
>>33291221Depends on the stream. I still remember seeing 2 EOPs flirt with each other a few months back on a Minecraft stream.
Ollie talking about Astel
>>33297892What did she say I was focused on Aruran suffering against the credits
I'm always slightly worried when I see a chuuba play Papers Please when wrong gendered passport comes up. Never know if some woke twitter user takes it the wrong way and tries to cancel you
>>33297916She was talking about how she plans things to say before streams, so her chat brought up calling Astel "oniichan" and she said that was not planned. Then she went on to say she was really embarrassed when she said it and was hoping he would scold her instead of giving her an awkward silence but she got the awkward silence and immediately regretted saying it.
>>33297918They shouldn't have to worry about it. Cancel attempts already have been tried but done by litteral whos.Better disappoint those bad apples earlier rather than walking on eggshells later
Seaweed has hit 70k
>>33297918Like the other anon said even if they try it will go nowhere. I still remember when some twitter bozo tried to cancel Shien cause he did the Lamar nigga thing but got nowhere.
>>33297918Those type of people can't even be called the loud minority in this case. It has been done before (Akina from Nijisanji comes to mind) and the majority will roll their eyes and move on.
Aruran did it. He didnt even hesitate on the delete data part
>>33298097Funny thing and one of the reasons I like HoloID is the fact they don't give a fuck about woke shit. Just look at the kind of things they said in yesterday's Love Corner, Risu's Paper Please playthrough or just their zatsudan streams.
>>33297918Hard to break this to you anon, but those EOP you see on the chat? Majority of them is SEA, primarily indogs, they hate those things as much as you do. Woke twitter can start shit, but no one would care.
Umamusume Member Watchalong with Sonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCiW6hOIfQk
>>33298291he really is addicted to horse racing...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM0GvAD2X8U&feature=emb_titleIncoming collab, it's going to be a good one
>>33299560Nice, that's the type of streams I am here for
>>33299560Watching that choas made me understand what Robe-chan meant by Holostars are a bunch of brats...
>>33300137They COULD NOT steer together at all. They only made it because of that secret path
>Majin, Aran bullied the knightWhat timeline am I on
>>33300211Everyone bullies the knight all the time though, he's THE prime bully target
>ywn have a cute catboy knightWhy live shame he's allergic to cats
>>33300262Isnt the one who is allergic to cat Miyabi?
(Maybe) Shien and Roberu's illustrator went to the cafe togetherhttps://twitter.com/morimokimori/status/1363103287243759629https://twitter.com/mebarunrun/status/1363046340939313153
>>33300211>got bullied by Ogalmao temma's senpai status really hit a new low
>>33300211It's just that with this group he tend to get short stickhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGL1wGeDZHY&t=5097sHere this stream demonstrate that the system itself went against him (2 black box in a row)
Fucking teamwork only happens in gambling
>>33300304It's absolutely wholesome how Babudon's mamas are as close as them.
>>33300347the love of gambling run in every Japanese men's blood
>>33300292When Temma was answering replies on twitter, someone asked which he liked more, cats or dogs.He answered he likes both, but is allergic to cats, so prefers dogs.
He's singing his own BGM again.
I would like to see this group collab more. Everyone seems surprisingly on par in skill. Maybe because of the game.
>>33300749They're all really bad, but that makes it better since they screw each other over even harder.
>>33300802Really love when no one knows wtf they are doing
>>33300337How nostalgic. Compares to the current stream they're really getting closer, less awkward dead air and more chaos I mean
>>33300304https://twitter.com/TsubaTako/status/1362715985967337472Looks like Tsubata-sensei went with them too
>>33301012These 3 seems close, good thing they still keep in touch>tfw still hurt
>>33301052I'm sure Tsubata-mama will have a chance to work with the Holostars again.
>>33301012>Mebaru said she went with Namakawa but never mentioned Tsubata>Tsubata said she went with Namakawa but never mentioned MebaruEither Namakawa went two times, or this is some spicy drama.
>>33301101They were posted on different days, seems like 2 different trips to me. No need to narrative post about their mamas.
>>33301101Makes sense to make several trips since it's a limited event.
What the fuck is temma doing 草He organised everyone to jump on se~ no and didn't jump himself
>>33301203Knight can only do one task at a time please understand
Dark Knight Temma taking full advantage of the friendly fire
>>33301101I can't believe Namakawa is two timer
>>33301520Just like her son
>>33301548Don't alert Shienschizo...
>>33301548>>33301575Shien is single. Thank you. Stupid antis. :)
>>33301575but I mean with Oga, Roberu and Izuru
Seeing all of those parents interaction to each other and to their own child are very wholesome when will Hanakishi parent be like that?
Aruran is doing a viewer participation for asobi taizen tomorrowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-M29aoropBQNo clue how it's going to work.
>>33302113It already happened before, I remember Comet did something similar with the 6-ball puzzle game. Fun times ahead
How are we feeling today, mengen bukatachi?
>>33300262A cute dog knight that tries his best and begs for praise is also good.Finally I can watch the collab, lovely bullying ahead.
A shogun, an old man, and a pizzaman walks into a bar...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPtLl8lDdHI
>>33302799He actually has rules in the description now kek.
>>33302815Since it is a single rule, he would better be pinning it in the chat.Still some first step...
>>33302815Since his last zatsudan already actually. I am glad he puts it in again.
>>33302799I've seen Rikka play apex more often lately. Did the bug tickle his brain too?
>>33302888He is on fire this week: Among us collabs, Labo yesterday, SM3DW just before and APEX now
>>33302799comfy first gen gaming
>>33302927Somebody has to pick up the slack since Roberu is kinda slacking again. Though with what happened to LifeMoRoTomo, I can't really blame him.
>>33302954Thankfully, it happened after he streamed, so he has the whole weekend to let things die down a bit
>>33302986When he explicitly stated in his morning stream that the collab was cancelled, not postponed, I thought it was kinda weird. How little I knew...
>>33302954He did do a mengen for the first time in a long time so at least there was that...
>>33302815I hope he pins it next time. I want shogun to be happy.
It feels so weird to be watching Apex but the main screen is Izuru. Im too used to Astel being there
>>33303085And he'll do it again tomorrow and continue, if we're lucky. Man, I forgot how much of a reaction goldmine Uma Musume was.
>>33303085>>33303123I wouldn't be totally surprised if he is doing them partially for the LifeMoRoTomo to avoid annoying comments, and to fix the lack of mengen.It is too bad that the remaining 3 members probably won't collab together for a while if ever
>>33303122It has been a little while since Izuru did a POV stream of Apex, hasn't he? The skill level between the Astel and Izuru has widened considerably though, probably thanks to the endless 100kill streams that Astel did.
Of course, he hits those 4 Wingman shots in a row right as I post >>33303198, I'm sorry for doubting you shogun.
Apex seems to be a natural EOP filter.
>>33303232His schoolgirl fans have no interest in him playing Apex, they want him to sing so they can cry about his coughs, call him precious and cute, and talk amongst themselves
>>33303248Please drink water!!!
>>33303248Shogun stream more Apex onegai.
>>33303248>>33303277Its time Shogun 100 kill endurance streams until the Rage tourney
>>33303198He had trouble with his internet connection since the tournament and even noted that he'd close the stream in case the stream would start lagging again. Maybe he wants to test his Apex streams before RAGE.>>33303248Glad they have shit taste since the best part about him is his screaming and cursing.
>>33303302God I love his hoarse screaming, I hope rag goes nuts in the next tourna- wait...
>>33303302They're truly missing out.
>>33303055And then there's also when he said Today's Roberu is the one who doesn't really wanna stream unlike Roberu who stream a lot in one day on yesterday asakatsu
>>33303333Is roberu going into depression arc? Also beautiful numbers
>>33303232It's amusing to see other fanbases go "dammit, apex again" whenever their oshi streams it, meanwhile, astellas have been conditioned to enjoy it.
>>33303232>>33303248>Majorly buffed Astel's incline. TWICE.>Increased Astel's collab opportunities and partners>Gave us at least two of the most memorable Holostars moments>Restored peace and harmony to Izuru's chat.I'm starting to believe that Astel really might be on to something with the APEX 3150 gospel, and we just don't realize it yet.
>>33303376Believe in the APEX
>>33303376Im almost tempted to pick the game up myself
>>33303376I mean, if Kuzuha can stream Apex 80% if the time and be the biggest male chuuba, something must be going right there
>>33303397It doesn't seem to work out for matuli tho...
>>33303422Well the main difference is that Matuli doesn't perform on stream 99% of the time, so that doesn't help the whole "getting carried offstream" thing. Didn't you see how much hate she got after the 2nd chuuba tournament? You need to actually make good plays regularly to be a good apex streamer.
>>33303375Before the tournament I actually avoided Apex streams but I've really learned to enjoy them because the boys always seem extremely relaxed when talking to each other when together or to their listeners in case they play alone.It feels a bit more intimate than a normal zatsudan.
Wait so Arurans guns changed from a mastiff to a wingman and Rikka went from a Loba to a Wrath midmatch?
>>33303375I'm that Astella. APEX SAIKOU!
God damn, having 3 rev'd up legends rush at you like that after you get crypto EMP'd must be horrifying. This is why Rev+Octane is so good at the moment, you can engage 1 free fight at little to no risk
>>33303624Reminds me of the Rev+Wraith meta back during Chibistars's tournament run.
>>33303735This combo is even more free because jumppads last forever, and they make no sound when you're flying through the air. It's super hard to notice that you're getting 3rd partied by them
Nice Champion!Arupapa got the last kill after Izuru went down
Izuru is trying to get Rikka to go for Plat, but he doesn't sound too enthused
>>33303833I was on the edge of my seat for that one. I've seen that situation play out so many times before during their practice streams and it almost never works out. Good on Pizzadad that it did this time.>>33303995If Pizzadad can make D4, pretty sure Rikka can make plat. Hell, even Astel said that anybody can make it to D4 if they just put enough time in.
I wonder who of them is drinking from a beer can the whole time.
>>33304150probably rikka, all old people drink in Japan
Since it when did pizza dad switch to octane?
>>333044072nd or 3rd game this stream? I didn't catch why he swapped though, but they've been getting some good successes with this team, quite a few successful third parties.
>>33304407Hes been playing octane for a couple games. I remember a while back he said he wanted to get more familiar with using other characters
>>33304248>>33304150Rikka just went to the toilet and back, so it was probably him after all.
>>33304495Why do Holoroids have a pee function...
>>33304508To satisfy those with a pee fetish duh. Holoroids must always be ready to please.
>>33298152>Just look at the kind of things they said in yesterday's Love Corner, Risu's Paper Please playthrough or just their zatsudan streams.Can you give some examples? I watch them sometimes but not often.
The old man is doing his silly gaijin accent again.
>>33304519Do not defile the no lewd function roid
Last Game 2!
>>33304993Last Game 3...
>>33304993>>33305060I can see Izuru learned very well from Astel
>>33305069It was Rikka actually, he was asking Pizzadad if he was sure that he wanted it to end this way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3om3Y-VvVYOga in a couple of minutes. He loves his middle of the night streams
I'm going to sound like a fag, but do you ever feel sad about the stars having different birthdays from their roommates? I know there's a lot of dedication and love put into birthday fan art and the like, but sometimes I can't help it and wonder if they ever think "all these birthday wishes are not really for me." I say this because Astel's roommate is celebrating his birthday today.
>>33304601I want the old man to make fun of my gaijin accent in bed
>>33306511You sound like a mega overthinking fag
>>33306536You're right anon. Maybe I really shouldn't think about it too much.
>>33306534>implying he wouldn’t be the sweetest kindest lay
>>33306511>all these birthday wishes are not really for meI really don't see how this makes any sense. They literally are what gives the character life.
>>33306567Yeah, now that I think about it I didn't use my brain for this one. I wasn't making sense.
>>33306511Kinda agree, but the other way around. I don't think they feel sad to be congratulated and to receive gifts on their characters' birthdays, but it must feel a bit sad to be streaming on their actual birthday with the viewers having no idea what day it is.Good thing Astel has a public reason to celebrate today.
>>33306653Are you replying to yourself?
Since a live is.getting closer to reality, how would you organize it in terms of time, songs and resources? With only 9 members, it will necessarily be less ambitious than HoloFES1
>>33306987forgot to attach the pic
>>33306987I just want shuffle units.
>>33306987I hope they're given a song like Shiny Smily Story.
Roberu... the Pacific Rim... your horse racing obsession...
Technically Suzaku could come back and stream anytime right?
>>33307306Why would he? He's twice the size of Roberu as an Indie. Quitting Holostars was the best decision Suzaku ever made.
>>33307371Heavily carried by Among Us tho. But it makes you wonder if anyone else had any second thoughts about trying to make it big alone instead of depending on a relatively unreliable company for them after a long while
>>33307412I think Temma has mentionned the possibility of leaving one day a few times, while papa has said that he planned to continue for a long time.
>>33307371Technically anon, not like he’s immediately coming back for real. I mean he’s not locked out like Kaoru right?
>>33307412Regardless of how hard he may have been carried by game choices, he's still doing much better than he'd be doing in Holostars which is really sad. Makes you wonder if Roberu could be even bigger than he currently is?>>33307447I can't see any reason why he'd be blacklisted, but I also can't see any reason Cover would want to hire him again or any reason he'd want to work for Cover again.
>>33307634>Roberu could be even bigger than he currently is?Nah, memes made him big
>>33307634Kaoru and Suzaku had a niche they excel on, that's why they have success outside of Holostars. Robe doesnt
https://twitter.com/daidoushinove/status/1363264157030576129Lots of celebration streams today. Cant wait for knight's membership
>>33308321Roberu's fairly known in the same niche Kaoru is in but he's usually a participant and not a GM. The dude can actually write stuff and seems to excel at literature if he just takes things seriously. I was fairly surprised by how he looks at literature in-game ala DDLC. Roberu just doesn't take himself too seriously or sort of... I don't know? I know he seems pretty confident but it feels like he's held back by something in him s'all. He's not as confident as he seems but he's got it in him.I honestly wanna see him try to delve into something like reviews or story analysis and commentary of the sort. It seems like he could actually find success there. Of course, it's gonna be a huge EOP filter as always though... which honestly isn't an issue if you're looking for Japanese fans anyway.
>>33306987I'm so out of touch and unaware when it comes to what people expect/want from things like this, I just hope the song choices suit the boys singing strengths if/when it ever happens.>>33308456So excited for the cute knight, I keep going back to that asmr.
>>33306987I've never actually watched the girls' lives, do they only sing original songs? Because the boys need some more of those first.
>>33306987- NSS, 2nd Fes and Bloom were ~3 hours long.Let's say the Holostars get half that, one and a half hours. - A typical 3d stream at the Cover studio is only an hour and a half so it's not too bad... that is assuming they use the Cover studio. I'll get to that.- Let's assume the average song length is 4 minutes long.Between a group opening, group ending and an individual song for all 9 members that takes up about 48 minutes. Add in talking and intermission segments, let's say 15 minutes. That leaves 30 minutes for unit songs... you get roughly 7 with some time left over. Whatever time left would be used to shill event merch.The schedule would be tight but it would work pretty well without running too long and give everyone a chance to shine. The thing about studios I mentioned though, if it was hosted outside of Cover's studio like at the Balus studio for SPWN I imagine run time would be cut down some but I'm not sure how it would be done satisfactorily outside of axing a few unit songs.If it was on SPWN, it would probably be a paid event. If it was at the Cover studio they'd have to either make it free (relying on spacha to make up for it) or beam it to NND to handle sales (but fuck NND).
>>33309461Er, typical stream at the Cover studio is only an hour.
>>33309259Only the recent one is full original songs. 1st and 2nd Fes they still sing some cover songs. Rikka already have one original song tho
>>33307371Wasn't Suzaku always bigger on his roommate? It's easy to see why the dude quit, why put in work on a dead second channel while your main starts to stagnate because of it. Temma was/is in a similar situation where his other channel is larger. In his case though his other channel is borderline dead in the water in terms of growth, so I can see him starting to abandon it to focus fully on Temma Ch. soon
>>33307371His roommate's content is not of my interest but he's definitely doing way better over there.
>>33309817his main channel was stagnant anyways, staying about the same number of subs from when he quit until last November when his channel exploded thanks to collabs. to put the rate he's growing now though into perspective, he went from ~35k subs in November to 150k subs a couple days ago.
>>33311867Yeah looking over his metrics it's actually insane. His channel was for all intents and purposes dead until the big amongus craze hit, now he's gaining 1k a day.
>>33308456The asmr was a massive success lads.
>>33311867its not something he can do as a holostar either, those big collabs with all sort of people is hard to be done when you have to wait for a manager's permission first everytime
>>33312517>450,000 people commemorationDamn the knight has grown too powerful to be bound by the laws of youtube
>>33312517>450,000 peopleHold your horse Shinove
>>33312517Can't wait for the one million celebration after opening his membership.
>>33309461It would be really sad if they did it at a studio without any audience though. Do they really deserve it? If they really plan to organize the olympics, I don't see why concerts would be close after that
>>33313352His subs celebration streams are as cool as usual...
>>33313694considering the audience portion for Bloom last week had to be scrapped after Cover and Bushiroad went into the effort of securing a venue that could hold 8,000 people weeks after months of preparation... I don't see them taking any risks.
https://twitter.com/astelleda/status/1363356164575006720Astel you cant keep carrying everyone in Apex. Your back cant take it anymore
Look forward to some soulful singing in less than 3 hours. It is nice that he is more confident lately: https://youtu.be/4iaBn_mVlz0
https://twitter.com/yukokuroberu/status/1363336256050974722https://twitter.com/yukokuroberu/status/1363346254315462666https://twitter.com/yukokuroberu/status/1363379682188533763Meanwhile, Roberu spends his day gambling on horses.
>>33314489Let him be, it's coping mechanism
just randomly popped into meika's stream and apparently astel has been playing with him since the last 5 minshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNbD-n7QPrI
>>33315247shogun also just joined
>>33315247Izuru joining too. Apex addicts.
>>33315247He just got home from the ryokan and his first thought is to apex before his 50k celebration...
>>33303265Why do people do this?
>>33315357Ryokans are temporary but APEX IS 3150!!!!!!
>>33315797 Treerrat always around in the chat
>>33316058*coping with it by genocide*
GET UP BOYS! IT'S KONA FUCKING YUKI TIME!
>Kukus thereI really need to watch the cock more
I cant believe Youtube killed Izuru...
Wow this is a long set list from Oga. Glad to panic wake up early enough to catch two songs at least.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1r0aDzt6bYKnight celebration and membership opening
>>33316639Now, that was some speedy membership opening! Nice to see all the support
Just needs Astel for the SunTempo set.
>>33316856All happy knight apprentices! I love to see it.
>>33316860Suntempo is really weird. They either prepare something sloppily or delay it the most possible to have something decent ready
>>33316639So many members glad for him.
>>33316871>Either wholeheatedly be lazy about it>Or wholeheartedly put it effort>But never half-ass anythingBalance in all things. SunTempo truly is the strongest gen.
>No member badges>No stamps>All will drawn by knight himself...I'm sold
Hes so pleased, nice clip studio powers Knighto.
>>33312023Man his content is only among us, how does someone not get sick of playing one game for months?
Almost forgot the whiskers....
This whole stream and the next is going to just be 2-3 stamps isnt it. He is so cute, doing his best.
>>33317038That's why he played Apex today, though that's a bit out of subject.
Damnit knight, stop being so cute.
>>33317154I never thought anybody would beat Miyabi's stamps in SOUL, but the Knight has proved me wrong.
>>33317172Miyabi's stamps still reign in making you feel cursed when you see them.
Anon... I understand why he's so popular with the aunties... Am I turning into one?
The first stamps will be 天才, that's cute
>>33317196Yes. Now join the aunties praising him in the chat like aunties do
>>33317196The knights charm is pretty powerful.
>>33317255The wall of 天才 in the chat is amazing. I love it
it's actually transparent, which makes it leagues above robe's camel
>>33317255Its actually works well as a stamp, I'm suprised.>>33317289The scuffed quality is what makes it charming
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Mw10XcEkoGet in here once Temma ends his stream!
Yes please give me some more covers, Knight.
>>33317331He just said 6 covers this year? Even though he has 1 so far? Ambitious, I like it. Shinove, good luck.
>>333173446 will probably end up being 2-3 even then very happy that he feels motivated to do it, even if he just pulled the number out of nowhere.
>>33317366I mean if we count collab covers, he already do 5 last year, so 6 isnt so farfetched
>>33317405Thats true, there really was a lot going on, especially towards the end of the year. I have strong faith in the knight and love his singing Ill be happy with anything.Wonder if he will jump on the official King cover bandwagon, the art is already there and waiting.https://streamable.com/wezpc1
So uhh... This live viewers bugs shit is still going on?
>>33317437Stop thinking about the numbers and watch the chuubas
I shouldve expected a singing opener.
>>33317443Nah. Just wondering cause its started like a fucking year ago.
of course there's no break between songs. this seaweed
>>33317514He hasn't even said a word, literally just singing. Also his voice is seriously on form today what the fuck, that Ryokan trip did wonders.
Don't get baited, he just mentioned that his 3D will come eventually, and that he will be the last of the Holostars to get it. No extra details.
remember to do your reps people
>>33317437>>33317469It's still fucked, but don't worry about it.
Astel's artist is pretty supportive of him. Tweeting out and visiting his streams
>>33317654He's Kami-Sama for a reason
Chibistars ; ;>>33317654His god is a kind one.
I'm really glad that they didnt un-person Kira
>>33317742Yeah I'm really happy that he can be brought up, the whole chat has been pretty heartwarming to listen to, I'm really happy for everyones incline.
Ollie is still cringing over the "Onii-chan" incident, but Astel is just having a good laugh and rolling with it.
It's pretty smart for Ollie and Astel to play siblings, so they dont have to deal with shippers and gachikoi too much
Astelchama theres still a thin line of yourself left...
Yep, it's kino.
Astel is evolving!
It's not the hood? It's a new hairstyle?!
He's such a fucking tease
>It's not the hoodFUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKK
I was hoping for a hood....
He went supersaiyan what the fuck
Not gonna lie. It looks cool
The fuck is that shonen protagonist hair
Look at this super saiyan seaweed.
This is way better than the "my mom thinks this looks ok" haircut.
The hair really is cute at least.
>>33317882Handsome and Cool Seaweed...
>>33317844After the last match in the tourney he might as well be one.
I was not expecting suzaku and kaoru name drops.
Wow, he even mentioned Suzaku and Kaoru.
This motherfucker really mentioned everyone lmfao
>>33317904>>33317914Makes them feel more human. I'm happy that they are allowed to talk about past members.
>>33317742Well it seems no one is unpersoned.
Real emoi hours in the morning.
Why is this feels like a funeral
You cant just have an emotional chat into Karma like that seaweed, too powerful.
I'll never forget astelbro for shilling his oshi and look at him now
>>33317966It has nearly been a year since Suzaku retired after all. Think of this as an acknowledgement that the Stars all know that the fans still think of the previous members, and that they made sure that the management know as well. This way, they won't make the same mistakes moving forward, and we can all support them knowing that they'll keep doing their best.
>>33317989Yeah, every now and then I wonder where he is now, since I don't really see him in Astel's streams anymore.
>>33317849Legit looks like that kimetsu no yaiba mc. He gurengef himself into the main character
>AcaciaI fucking love him
>>33318005They weren’t here that long ago, even dropped akas again
>>33318031His god requested this, so of course he has to sing it
>>33318037 this is cute as fuck
The stars are making it... I'm so happy.
I'm glad Astel finally got a solid hairstyle
Coming from Temma's silly stamp making/celebration to this is such a whiplash
>>33318060Roberu and Astel in particular has been making bucks last year
>>33318102The only numbers that matters
I heard him say that they might be putting his new hairstyle on his older outfits? That would be amazing.
>>33318102Uoooh. I’m happy for my cute seaweed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs0DD1Yw7nsold man is gonna be playing ender lilies
>>33318134I miss his summer outfit so bad
Don't forget Kishimen/Kinghts apprentices, there is a members only stream starting soon.
https://twitter.com/NkmR8/status/1363473810461237248Please thank Astel's god.
Time for more Temma-sensei stamp making stream
>>33318169Proud dad. Cute
>Astel when his Astellas try to sneak in some sleep during his streams.
>>33318381Ahh Tsubata-mama breaks my heart every time.
>>33318381I can empathize with Tsubamama. I'm not sure if it's just Hololive, or vtubers in general, but it's kinda hard to see your beloved child just get treated as if they didn't exist after they graduated. Astel not shying away from talking about Kira, and Kaoru and Suzaku as well, must have given some great comfort in her heart.
>>33318504Truly the leader of holostars.
>>33318504Behavior of a shounen protagonist.
>>33318557It is not the obvious one I would have chosen for being a leader but he is really showing from the beginning of the year how he dealt with RAG, the announcement and his interactions with others that he is deserving the title. Let's hope the weight of such role won't crush him after a while
You faggots that didn't join kishi membership is missing out on him struggling drawing leaves.
I wonder if this wooden sword will end up evolving into a rainbow blade.
>>33318557>>33318624Man, if you told me a couple months ago that Astel would be the one to take the FBK role in Holostars, I'd have laughed you off.
>>33318688This man has been drawing a stick for half an hour, it's great
Having the genuis stamp done first was really a smart move.
>>33318698I think the endgame would be Tenken Yozora, since that was what the Kishimen wanted.
>>33318700Hmmm. I’m not super surprised honestly, watch the holostars minecraft competition stream where Astel is the host. He takes things like that seriously
>>33318740Makes sense and better all around but I cant help but imagine on his own there would have been the possibility of rainbow blade.
>>33318841Too much overlap with Kageyama Blade DX.
Im enjoying the level of detail he is given this wooden blade that is going to be completely lost to anyone not looking at the full size.
With how he spends one hour on a branch and a leaf, I think he'll do more of these drawing streams in the future
>>33319416:tensai：Looking forward to them
>>33319416Looking forward to the months of content as he slowly draws all his stamps and badges
>>33318700Same, Roberu always felt like the one for me, but even with his love for streaming and vtubing he's still a little too "business-like".
>>33319541He is more like the face of Holostars, but he never gave the impression he really wanted to take responsabilities or to be a leader, which is a good thing given his lifestyle
>>33318698I am poor anonchama.
>>33317605I'm guessing, but could it be he wanted his 3D last because he wanted a 3D collab with other members?
>>33319541>>33319654True, but it just felt like the role would go towards him sooner or later, given his status as the de facto tard wrangler when the boys get together.
280ish members for Temma. Not bad at all
>>33320245So happy for this cute knight.
>>33320245Not bad at all. Wonder how much seaweed will get when he opens his.
>>33319541Roberu is my oshi and I've been watching him very close to after he debuted but I'm definitely okay with him not really being anything like a 'leader'. I think the regulars are aware that he doesn't seem to want that responsibility. He even said that he doesn't want to be considered as something close to what we consider as a leader either. I know he's definitely business-like when it comes to publicly seen and available things. The dude checks his videos so often for yabs, makes sure to backtrack so often, and tries really hard not to show his softer side or him faltering on screen. Heck, I think the testament to it is him even hiding his 10k celebration stream and only putting it back up when a lot of regulars brought it up.No matter how many streams we have with him where we just chat with him, the sense of distance is always something he makes sure to establish. It's the same with his collabs, there's always some kind of boundary that keeps you from getting too close...on-screen at least. He seems close with the others and his genmates in a way no one would see and, judging from what Astel said, it'd be nice to think that his frequent streams are partly due to what they set out to do to make Holostars more known. Really makes you think about what Miyabi said about him during his one of his Mario Kart streams too.Roberu always struck me as a guy who did a lot of stuff behind the scenes despite his frequent streaming and whatnot. The only ones who would ever know the extent would just be themselves. He really feels like that bartender you meet and talk to once in a while, there's a sense of closeness that's never too close. You tag along with him for a good time but not necessarily a heartfelt one. There's a good chance we won't reach that level of personal closeness ala Astel's talks and that's okay. I don't really want to assume anything about him or his feelings either but I wonder how hard every graduation hit him. Especially when you consider all three of the graduated members were probably very good friends with him in his past life. Of course, they could always talk and interact off screen but there's always gonna be a pang of loneliness that hits. For all we know he's just coping right now. Sorry this got long but tl;dr: I'm a regular but I think he's the 'big bro' figure instead of anything close to a leader.
I've said it before during his Hollow Knight run, but Rikka really is surprisingly competent with 2D platformers.
>>33320484It depends on whether or not he keep to his plan on wanting one tier with a much pricier rate than Miyabi's. But with how loyal his fans are, I'd bet 400-500 members would be doable.
>>33320574What did Miyabi say about him?And also the fact that even Izuru said that Roberu feels like the best "Big Brother" figure in Holostars. during that "AsuIzu vs Babudon, hosted by Temma" collab
>>33320792I'm actually suprised it got clipped and translated here: https://youtu.be/ALe1VgttsJIIt's relatively recent but it also gives some nice insight not only on the others but Miyabi in regards to the others. Out of such a fun and gimmicky stream, it caught me quite off guard.
>>33320574Roberu seems like the type who like to do things more on the private more than anything, in fact he's the only stars that hasnt posted photos from IRL to his twitter and there was one time when someone calls him the center of holostars and he denied that, saying that Miyabi should be the center instead. When Monoe was fired, I wonder how hard it hits him, afterall, Monoe was the one who collabed with him the most in VOMS.
>>33320574Me too. I feel like Roberu is more in the "supporting/pushing from behind" kind of person, and big bro figure is much more fits him than being a leader (Shien and Izuru choose him as a big bro figure). Meanwhile I also think Izuru is also doing lots of favors behind the camera. Miyabi said he gained a lot of confidence in singing bcs of Izuru, and he also even said Izuru is the "mommy figure" in Holostars. Even Roberu said Izuru is "big bro" figure because he has a lot of charms and could pull people up (this is when he did zatsudan with FBK). I think there also another members that had said good things about how reliable Izuru is, but I forgot. Despite him being the youngest in Holostars, he is still a very admirable senpai for the others.All of Holostars members have their own role, they're basically a family.
>>33320882Wonderful, thank you.
>>33320948>>33320949Seems like a case of the "supporting pillar getting center stage" if you consider "sub count."Fitting for the 'best host'. Put the spotlight on others, not himself.
>>33321005Weirdly enough, what I heard from Miyabi the stream that was clipped was what made me become a member for as long as I can muster. I definitely love all the boys. Though I do have my oshi and all, I can't help but want to support all of them together.
This is the most wholesome thread I have ever seen on this entire website.Y'all are good people.Out of curiosity, do you guys expect Cover to try and do an EN branch for HoloStars? Any thoughts or opinions on the possibility?
>>33321236Don't use that word with that spacing. You are making me want to rude post
>>33321236They just aren't ready for EN yet. There's a risk that the EN generation overwhelms their developing JP base and fucks the JP stars over by making their audience even more EN dominated.Maybe next year.
>>33321236EN Branch for Holostars most likely comes truly later. They're a business, and so far Holostars is a good "side business", but hasn't found the type of success that would warrent a whole sub-branch of a branch. Though, I sometimes wonder where does Holostars truly lie: as "Holostars" or "HoloJP" in terms of business views.My money's on intigrating "HoloSTARS" into Hololive EN, and rebranding as HoloEN rather than HoloLIVE EN, and thats "just a bet."
>>33321236Maybe, but not anytime soon.
>>33321292>even more EN dominatedThe shogun's going to kill someone if that happens
>>33321292Appearently the apex match that RAG gonna do is pretty mainstream on japan. Here's hoping they gain new fans
>>33321338Yeah, it has a lot of mainstream participants, so if they stand out there, it's going to help a bunch.
I've been wondering where the waiting room was, turns out he fell asleephttps://twitter.com/astelleda/status/1363519267241562115
>>33321278I don't know what you're saying.How about we meet in the middle and you explain it to me gently?>>33321312>>33321314I thought this at first, too, but since the EN branch they have already kinda blew up and they've been accepting early applicants from EN via their forms having male options etc.I'm starting to wonder if they might do it earlier than expected, which may or may not be a misstep but... we all know that Cover is no stranger to mismanagement either.
Where is my dosage of Apex????? AAAAAAAAAAH
Speaking of APEX...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0BgPHDsPGg
>>33321338If you focus on what they've been focusing on outputting lately, its been mostly domestic. The only overseas focused event they've done at all lately was the talkfest. Everything else has been focused on growing their domestic growth.
>>33321236Honestly, with all the collabs with HoloID, I'd say I prefer Holostars ID more than EN (not to mention there are many Holostars male fans from Indonesia). But not on this year, maybe next year. 4th gen first.
>>33321398That 2s thumbnail
>>33321375Being honest, I sometimes wonder if they added that "gender not relevant" clause for reasons that involve "biologically a-" since HoloEN IS western focused.
You guys really liked the new hairstyle... unironically?I mean, I'm happy if he's happy but damn...
>>33321500It's a Shonen Protag hairstyle, fits him well.
>>33321236>Holostars ENPlease, not that timeloop again, it has been discussed more than enough, check the archives or give your own opinion, man
>>33321500I'm a shameless shonenfag, so yes.
>>33321500It's cute in a very silly fashion, he could be a yugioh side character with that hair. I wouldve preferred a hood but the suntempo hood fantasy was just not meant to happen.
>>33321469I toyed with the idea of it being to prevent legal hassles, but entertainment is one of the few areas in which there are explicit exceptions to anti-discrimination laws, thanks to Hollywood influence back in the day... so it's probably not that.I'm pretty sure it's just a way to get some early male entries so they can be prepared for a stars EN. It's really a question of when, not if.
>>33321413Never doubt the power of APEX.
>>33321500Yes, he's evolved from a side character into a main character
>>33321619Thats a hell of a good point.
>>33321643More like got popular enough to afford hair gel.
>>33321469That clause has been up since HoloEN1 auditions for all foreign branches. It doesn't really mean anything. For what it is worth, they may just cover their ass in case of problematic persons applying so they could filter them more easily and complying with potential laws. Integrating males in Hololive will complicate a lot collabs opportunities with japanese holos unless you want to make HoloEN even more isolated than what they already were.If you wanna watch some "revolutionary" format with mixed gender gens, you might want to wait for NijiEN.
>>33321469>>33321619>>33321619taking in applications for a prospective one is still a good idea even if they don't intend to follow through with it at that point in time, it lets them get an idea of what kind of people are out there and leaves the off chance that there might be someone really worth getting in touch with in case they want to follow through later.
Somebody actually made the youtube premiere song Roberu edition lelhttps://youtu.be/PpdvOclkf40
>>33321756Don't hide the year! There was no clarification neither for the vSinger, neither that time...https://twitter.com/hololive_En/status/1253558088692461568
>>33321813Amazing. Why are the regulars so gifted when it comes to the Roberu instrument. I still visit this remix often https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCgVaZ5BjjA
>>33321756>Debut time and order...depending on the results.To me, this reads like "We'll start working on stars EN when we have enough people who are cool, and not before."
>>33321076Watched the video. Was half-expecting, but shocked how much weight was put onto Roberu's actions.
>>33321908I wouldn't be surprised if they were filtering male auditions extremely hard to aim for "primo" members. They're probably hestitant due to the moderate standing of JP, and an EN branch won't really have any senpai to work off of, with no real guarantee of working with the hololiveEN branch either, so if they can't stand on their own they torpedo the whole branch
>>33322064I think male EN talents will have a much easier time purely from differences in culture, though. Seems like EN audiences are more likely to be fine with male entertainers on the regular, since westerners are, in general, less familiar with the "idol rules"
>>33321236ID is more viable actually, given that the fanbase there already exist and they have a chat culture closer to the JP than the hellhole that is EN chat. Huge plus if they can speak english (which is already a must) cause they'll just wrangle both ID and EN fans that way.Also in terms of collab mates, the boys already tested the waters with ID, turns out to be a success, fans from both sides love it. While in EN, Watson already said she doesn't want to collab with the boys, Kiara sidestepping all the time, idk about Mori and Ina, but the golden shark is being as untouchable as always, It'll be like making an entirely new group. ID is safer in my opinion.
>>33322093Holepen is just an alternate world version of Grape-kun, one who never found Hululu. The hole in his heart just festered and rotted until it formed a literal hole in his chest, and at some point he became a resident of the Hanasaki Forest.
>>33322086It won't. Even if your target is western audience, Cover is in Japan and they are the ones making the decisions.>idol cultureIt isn't the reason why they are restricted. I wish people finally understood someday...
>>33322210Don't you dare make me feel pity for one of the forest abominations!
>>33322198I'm not convinced by that logic desu.I think the EN girls would want to collab with them once they actually appeared, desu. The majority of them try to play above-it-all, but get excited when something new comes around. After that, they'd be on friendly terms and it'd be normal.Provided, of course, that management didn't push some dumb "no cross-gender collaborations" crap on them for no reason, of course.
>>33322027Considering what was said before Miyabi reached Roberu I was not expecting it go that deep for him. Every single time I watch Roberu now I keep thinking about his words.
>>33322256>It isn't the reason why they are restricted. I wish people finally understood someday...Then what is it?Why else would the male talents be so far behind the female ones? They work just as hard or harder, and they seem to get less support and advertisement from their company and less support from the Japanese audience.
>>33322276You're either a newfag or from leddit or both at the same time.There are currently no restrictions between Hololive and Holostars, but both sides don't really want to do anything with the others because nobody benefits from it. ID is more relaxed and have a common history.See >>33322198 where Ame unambiguously said that she won't do anything, especially because of shiptrashes and her rabid fanbase
>>33322198As much as the idea of explosive growth into the 100K+s being norm for Holostars makes me excited. I would prefer if they grew and maintained their own fanbase that doesn't necessaringly always "attached" them to collabing outside their branch.>>33322256>>33322276I unironically think that there aremore people that want cross-gender collabs than not lately. And judging from the most vocal sentiments down to genuine comments regarding Hololive-Stars, I think the people clamoring to escape Yuribait duos and collabs are starting to become more vocal for just straight up "FOXDEMON" and "Matsurikka" tier collabs. >>33322347The issue being is I think the Holostars themselves are still in the state of not wanting to "leech" off of their larger sister branches.
>>33321236I'm not excited about the idea and to be honest I don't want it to happen.
>>33322364I'm not a /jp/ regular. More of a /tg/ person, so a lot of this is new to me. Thank you for your patience.>>33322366>The issue being is I think the Holostars themselves are still in the state of not wanting to "leech" off of their larger sister branches.I'm honestly hoping that the Hololive girls make more of an effort to reach out to the boys. I know they'd be able to charm the audience in general, if they can just reach people who normally wouldn't check them out.I think that a lot of the people who "aren't interested in guy streamers" or whatever would change their mind if you could just get them to give them a chance for a bit, y'know?
>>33320948Sometimes I just think he cries off stream or just talks to someone off screen about it because he doesn't like people seeing him sad or crying.
>>33322276>I think the EN girls would want to collab with them once they actually appearedWell that still can't be considered as fact right, what I mean to say is that ID market is already tested by the Among Us and Astel/Ollie arc, and rather than push back, the ID fans are wanting more.>management didn't push some dumb "no cross-gender collaborations" crapThis too, is not a thing in ID side, given that nearly all of stars have collab with all of ID before.
>>33322369Any specific reason why?
>>33322425I mean, I think the vast majority of men don't want anyone to see them being emotionally vulnerable. That isn't a surprise.
>>33322366What you want (judging from, I think, starting to) is not what the majority wishes. Yuribaiting is fucking annoying, but there are no coincidences why it keeps going on, it is what brings views and money that breaking the status quo is not worth the risk. People already asked some holos for collabs with the Stars even to this month and they don't want to. Stars don't want either because they want to grow on their own merit. Matsurikka and Foxdemon are great collabs because they have been formed naturally and not forced by outside influences.
>>33321236Fine, I give it my 2 cents- Despite that hololiveEN explosion in popularity, it doesnt mean holostarsEN will have the same too, afterall they have to compete with popular male streamer in the west- It takes hololive 3 years before expanding to EN, stars is a relatively new branch so even if there will be a holostarsEN it will be in far future- It is unlikely for you to collab with your favorite holo if you get in holostars EN except if she's on holoID- I'd rather focused on the current boys, but if we had to add more boys, its better be gen 4.
>>33322424>I think that a lot of the people who "aren't interested in guy streamers" or whatever would change their mind if you could just get them to give them a chance for a bit, y'know?You're probably right. Look at Ollie and Astel. All it takes a small push. I think the reality is theres no real barrier anymore. Just that a majority of people watch whats infront of them until something "new" or "big" comes along.>>33322425>>33322460>crying/talking to someone when no one can see youPretty sure thats the nail on the head. Only on-stream time he's cried as of lately, or even remotely emotional was the ending of Xenoblade 2.
>>33322519>better be gen 4Have one of them be a competent apex addict onegai.
>>33321500I like it but feel like it would have looked better with a different outfit. I think the first hairstyle already fit his NY outfit perfectly.
>>33322366>fanbase that doesn't necessaringly always "attached" them to collabing outside their branchAgreed. I've seen some vtuber which their whole identity is collab, with no presence in their own content. Don't want the boys to fall on that hole.
>>33322485>What you want (judging from, I think, starting to) is not what the majority wishes.>Yuribaiting is fucking annoying, but there are no coincidences why it keeps going on,You're most likely right. Theres also the genuine possibility (and reality) that its just what the duo in question for certain "yuribait pairings" just want that as well.
>>33322534>Xenoblade 2I'm actually suprised that he cried, but that's probably the power of blade waifu>>33322548But we already have 2 addicts....
>>33322628From every anecdotal source I hear from, Xenoblade 2 has really good characters, apparently. Won't comment on the story, though.
Is Astel not playing ranked? He's still trying to get to Master, right?
>>33322688He swapped to Ranked, not sure if he's actually going to push for Master since he hasn't really been doing any grinds recently.
>>33322688>>33322706I think he's waiting for the event to end before going back to ranked. That, and he gets burned out easily when he gets swamped with cheaters in ranked.
>>33322519>compete with popular male streamer in the westNot only that, you have to consider that Vtuber themselves is a niche especially in the west, given a lot of western 'Anime Girl' vtuber literally stagnates both in subs and views, if those thing happens to 'Anime Girl', what will happen to 'Anime Boys'?
>>33322750StarsJP struggled for more than a year now. I would be really bummed for them if StarsEN came out of nowhere and their popularity exploded to 100k-200k from day one and having all their efforts denied just because of language.Best way to start good relationships between branches...
>>33322864I mean not like I don't agree with you, but that pretty much happened with HololiveJP and they're still okay.
>>33322998They had 3 years to grow, got 3D, a HoloFES, support from their corporation. They got enough subs (many hundreds thousands) to be among the top 2 place for female talents to be unlike Holostars which some of the roommates are doing better on their own.EN only exists because of all the efforts and resources spared by everyone. What you are suggesting is skipping all those steps for some randos without letting StarsJP the chance to fully prove their worth
>>33322444Some have already voiced exactly what I wanted to say before replying to you, so I'll keep it simple: I don't think a StarsEN branch will help the already existing members in the same way HoloEN has helped hololive as a whole.My biggest fear is to see them being overshadowed and their views cannibalized by a hypothetical EN branch. The majority of those who are auditioning most likely do not care about the Stars at all and just want the brand name, and the thought of another branch gaining 100k susbcribers within a month for the simple fact that they speak English hurts. I just care about the boys too much and I'm content with their current incline, I apologize for the rant.
>>33323103Again, I said I agreed with you about that, but if you think there's going to a schism between two branches because of numbers then you have no faith in the boys.
>>33322864>>33323118I think that fear is kind of unfounded, honestly.I mean... I'm going to take a shot at it specifically because I like the boys, and I'd like to have the opportunity to stream with them some day, y'know?and honestly, if the language or cultural difference caused StarsEN to blow up, it's just all the reason to stream with the guys we already like more, to support their growth.I don't think viewership is a zero-sum game. A rising tide lifts all boats.
Love the live tweet narration from seaweed
seriously, why are you people arguing with the resident schizo? Are you guys new? He does this all the time
>>33323523I think the schizo is you, man.Nobody is arguing or upset. People are just swapping opinions. It's a conversation. That's how they work.
>>33323523I am starting to believe you are the actual resident schizo trying to derail the conversation, because from what I saw, it remained fairly civil.Could you point out which posts are his to enlighten everyone?
I just have a drunk epiphanyVoice Cloning (Audio Deepfake) technology are actually pretty good right now. Wouldn't it be easy to clone any Holostar (or any chuuba) voice to make them say whatever you want since there's boatloads data to feed from their archive? This way the boys doesn't really need to fluent to make English content. They cam easily make an audiobook from any public domain book.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOX25zmK5w0Oga is killing it with the art choices lately.
>>33323888Will the omaesan make it????
>>33323888Oga...Your sleep reps...
>>33323945he probably just woke up
>>33323918I have full trust in Shinove/Fubuki/Oga team.
>>33323976You might be right. It is just that he did lots of guerilla freetalk streams around that time lately. So he would have to wake up even earlier to set up the frame
Astel and Izu got a nousagi in their squad...
Erotic Oga within the first few minutes. That echo startled me.
Did we ever get a full on morning voice Oga? Imagine that voice even deeper and husky
Oga is taking voice lines from chat if you ever wanted to try your luck with that,
>>33324423Time to make him say Onii-chan. Just kidding
>>33324417The only time that really comes to mind straight away is from this compilation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybLSA1C2H2g&t=599s Im sure he has once or twice more but its not coming to mind.
>>33324471Thanks anyway, anon!
Temma’s whiny boyish voice is so fucking cute
>>33324582Temmas everything is too fucking cute, its incredible how both high and low his voice can go. That whine and sort of flustered laugh/inhale he does sometimes too is perfect.
Honestly the people complaining about other vtubers being mentioned in the chat are more annoying than the people actually mentioning them.
>>33317778You underestimate the shippers. Acting like siblings just makes it hotter.
>>33324817This. They will use any means to justify their ships by overanalyzing everything, find any sign possible or making up shit on the fly.But to be fair, they do it for every potential combination, including yurishit.
