Meet Sony's newest VTubers!You'll watch them, right?https://prtimes.jp/main/html/rd/p/000002939.000013546.html
>>12878778Blue and purple are cute.
Get the fuck out with your corporate chuubas
>>12878778Yeah I'll check them out, i am not some brand loyal faggot
>>12878778>only stream in laotianno thanks
>>12879046This entire board revolves around corporate chuubas
>>12878778i want to see lewds of the blue one
I would give Hitoshiro and perhaps Alba a chance IF they weren't Snoy.On principle I will have to abstain from watching them.
Blue and Goat looks cute
>>12878778I trust Re:AcT's imploding management more than I trust Sony so no
>>12878778>語学を中心に幅広い知識を持っている。Sheepchads EOPs are in!
AKA the cast of "The Curse of Kaguya Luna Act 2"
>>12878778>SonyI pray for these poor souls, but they chose this fate.
>>12878778The one on top left looks like a KyoAni character
>>12878778Meh they look boring, Rin is the only one that looks soo normal that can become something good with some mistery lore, like that one LV Loli
Based off the focus on creating characters in a multimedia universe with some sort of anime thing to introduce them, Sony seemed to have make the mistake of actually making kayfabe Virtual Youtubers, not just streamers with an anime avatar.Gomen, I'll pass, I only ever cared for streamers with anime avatars, not characters.
>>12878778sony can eat my shit
>>12878778Boring as fuck
>>12878778NoThe Japanese market is too saturatedShould have pandered to international viewers but now it's going to be dead on arrival
>>12878931Mumei Killer, Watame Killer, Kronii Killer, Baelz Killer, Mori Killer, and Ayame Killer...my god boys Sony has us bested this time
Debut on the 19th eh?
>>12878778Who the fuck would sign on with Sony after what happened to Kaguya Luna
Nice. Maybe this time I'll get to watch some shitshow from the beginning.
>>12878778>no malesno thanks
>>12878778>corporate shit>boring designspass
>all girls>no males>no troonsperfect, I will watch them just because of this
>>12879943Hololive is /vt/ approved corporate, they are fine
>>12879829Duh, she's designed by Horihori
Alba, Hitoshiro and Kagase look nice. The other's not so much.
Not a single one of you lusting over the cunny? WTF happened to this place?
>>12880147There were still people that signed up for MyHoloTV after they wiped out a whole Gen. It's just a mere stepping stone to better companies, I would hope.
>>12878778>>12878931Why is Rin the most normal looking one?She looks out of place
>>12880528Probably busy lusting over Gura's Skyrim Stream.
>>12880723Normal isekai MC
>>12880528You mean Kagase? Yeah she's good. The sheep cunny looks like shit though and probably have a boring meek personality.
>>12878778Honestly the two in the middle look nice, I'll prob check them out, specially the yellow one.The other designs are pretty meh, specially the first two. (Dragon girl looks like a rip-off ch'en tho)
>>12878778>All femaleWell so much for being different than the competition. How is that we live in a era in which Kuzuha is the most popular vtuber yet no one gives male vtubers a chance
>>12881481>Kuzuha>most popular vtuber3.5 million > 1.1 million
Rin doesn't stream, btw, she's just a lore character that ties the other five together.
>>12882189Kuzuha has better viewership than any vtuber
>>12878778If they are doing six man waves will the final one have two chuubas?At least they will get to keep the models which look somewhat nice, mostly
>>12882447because he pretty much has monopolyNijiEN males will bury him
>>12883205Wrong on both counts
>>12882307Snoy ma balls
>>12878778Kagase is cute but I'm not watching themOverall meh designs
>>12878778I'm sorry for the people involved, but the setup and cross media approach is too convoluted. No interest
>>12881481>One successful male vs. Several successful femalesYou'd have more females than males if you were running a group.
>>12878778Sony is partly owner of Niji, surely they got some counselors putting them up to speed with the vtuber scene.
>>12885280Sony doesn't own any part of nijisanji, or at least I couldn't find anything official
>>12885280Sony is in a close business relationship with NIji, but they are justt partners
>>12883205>NijiEN males will bury himIf they had been since the start maybe they could have done something, but now? No way, those guys are fucked.
>>12878778No cunny no watch
Don't care Didn't askPlus Rin looks shit
I don't care about american companies.
>>12882447>viewership than any vtuber
>>12885430Sony Music is an investor in Nijisanji.They have invested around 15 million into them
>>12885562I miss luna
>>12878778More CGDCT? With some retarded lore shoved in? In Japanese? Nah, hard pass for me.
Wait Rin is not a real vtuber? She was the only one I liked.....
>>12885618reminder that pekora retweeted kuzuha once and management told her to delete itsame with kuzuha retweeting coco
>「VERSEn」は、様々な物語を巡るVTuberプロジェクトで、ライブ配信・アニメ・音楽・イラスト・小説・漫画などのコンテンツをクロスメディアに展開し、ユーザーと共に「VERSEn」の世界における過去・現在・未来を物語として紡いでいきます。>VERSEn" is a VTuber project that travels through a variety of stories, spinning the past, present, and future of the "VERSEn" world together with its users through a cross-media development of contents such as live streaming, animation, music, illustrations, novels, and manga.wtf is this? just copy alternative and hope it works?
>>12885834who is kuzuha?
why didn't they just buy Cover Corp
>>12885823That anon is confusing SME with SIE.
>>12886268Probably want the inhouse made prestige
>>12878778>no ENFailure it is.
>>12882782There's no waves; this is a different project from the 50 VTuber VEE one. VERSEn is being run by Sony Music Labels, one of SME's subsidiaries.
>>12878778I like the blonde dragon girl's design
>>12878931Itsuki is sex, hopefully the voice and personality match the design.
>>12879829The top left isn't debuting. She's a protagonist in lore.
>>12879046oh the irony
Red and blue sex.the rest don't exist
>>12878778Why would I watch them when I have no attachment to the brand. I'm interested in Hololive and Nijisanji debuts because I want to see more people added to the cast and enjoy them with fellow fans. Literally who are these people, why would I ever care.
>>12889905There was a point when you never had attachments to those brands either, live a little anon
>>12889938That's true but until Sony vtubers do something to make me care like those two companies will I'll just not care. They are also Japanese, so I can't imagine anyone giving a shit about them here other than novelty when there are long established Japanese vtubers who get overlooked to hell and back, not only here but on /jp/
>sony vtubers>not listing their pronouns and sexual/gender preferenceshuh?
>>12878778out of 50, at least some of them must be fluent in english right?
>>12878778I will check Blue (Itsuki) and Yellow (Uno) out, there rest seem a bit bland while Red gives me impression of a strict hag.
How can you hire fucking horiguchi and aka and still end up with such shit tier design? I thought aka at least is into vtubers enough to push out a better design than that.
>>12878778uno is sex
>>12878778Finally, hololive killer
Wonder wind kind of edge they’ll have with so many DCMAs being ignored since Sony owns a fucking label company.
no, I hope sony pays them a decent wage but I won't be spending my time or money even if they're good
>>12878778Hell yeah another Niji killer
>People gonna be like "why you bitchin about corpo vtubers when that's literally what Holo/Niji are."Difference is Holo/Niji were literally created as Vtuber companies, this shit with Basedny/Crunchy/etc is just mainstream companies getting on the bandwagon way too late.
>>12878778Interesting designs with a lot of variety so that's cool.But no males so I refuse to support the project until they add them.
>>12880147>happened to Kaguya LunaQRD, pls?
>>12878778Rin and Itsuki looks cute, might give them a look
>>12879943Hololive is still a tiny company. Sony on the other hand is a multibillion global gigacorp. It's not exactly comparable.
>>12878778It's (almost) all hornshit.
>>12882307Snoy's Toys for Boys(formerly Chuck's)
>>12880637Yeah exposure is exposure, at least you could have a decent looking model and something to put on your resume if you wanna try going for the more established companies eventually, some Holo and Niji members came from other companies.
>>12886003(You) are Kuzuha.
>>12878778Should've went with the vsingers route. Oh wait, they ruined kaguya luna
>>12892820Oh wait, upper left isn't actually a vtuber? Then it is all hornshit.
Those janky outfits look like they were created by a free online AI artbot
>>12878778>bland>bland>single horn is a poor design choice that just screams derivative>prudish>cute twintail with standout contrasting colors who has the absolute best design of the bunch>Nina liteAs expected of Sony, a 1:5 success to failure rate is the best they can do.
>>12878931alba looks like she pegs
>>12891815She got fucked contractually and standard Sony music label stuff happened. Things got bad enough that she just fucked off and became an indie and did far better than she ever did as kaguya luna.
>>12886490Jesas, wtf is Sony doing?why are they so retarded at everything that is not Playstation?
>>12882447>>12881481Fuck off back to your homoshit thread, faglord
>>12878778>Woke as fuck company now trying to destroy VTube
>>12878931>no asymmetric stockingsThank you
>>12885926>wtf is this? just copy alternative and hope it works?If they release if before holoALT they have the edge
>>12886457>Failure it is.Maybe one of them is a multilingual behemoth with a captivating normal voice, a goddess singing voice, well versed in otaku culture and more importantly... shes good at games
>>12878778The classic schoolgirl design is a welcome change of pace after years of increasingly chuuni shit, but alas, fuck Sony.
>>12900616Sony America have been slowly fucking up playstation since they became the management for it, nothing is safe anymore
>>12902129sorry anon, but the schoolgirl is just a tie-in character, the chuubas are only the chuuni ones
The only thing I trust Sony not to fuck up is hardware.
>>12878778>No malesNo, fuck off.
which ones are hags or hag sounding?
Nanamona 205 subsItsuki 311 subsUno 254 subsSera 249 subsOtoha 212 subsRin 0 subsRin... My poor poor Rin...
I still can't forgive them
>>12878778The kyoani character looks cute, I'd watch her if she was a vtuber. I don't care about the rest.
>>12878778Oh no Rin looks cute as fuckI'll probably watch their debuts and then never again because I'm an EOP
>>12878778Top left reminds me of kyoani
>>12878778Watch Fujima Sakura insteadhttps://youtu.be/IrqXCa6BxWM
>>12881088This does not slip!
>>12878778Are artists doing this long neck shit on purpose? You're telling me nobody looked at that pink girl and thought "wow that looks fucking hideous maybe we should fix it"
>>12903536>last video 2 years agoSally...
>>12903617Yes, it has to do with how Live2D works. Try to imagine these girls wearing a tanktop instead of clothes that somewhat hide their necks and you'll notice they all have the long ass neck
>>12903720Sally is ten times better than all the EN whores in the vtuber scene right now
>>12880402>>12879046>your company bad>my company good
>>12878778>all those loreshit>just for them to eventually spam apex or minecraft streams
I mean if fucking Crunchyroll managed to make a better vtuber than HoloEN or NijiEN so can they.
>>12904143They will only allowed to play Sony games such as TLOU2.
if they released 100% lewd loli wave, I would watch
>>12880402No they aren't. Fuck Cover.The sooner the talents fuck off from that lazy ass company, the better.
>>12906002Worked for Holostars, but for Hololive?Nope.
>>12905580Watch as they try a sony exclusive game and get copyright strike cause those sony branches dont communicate shit
>>12878778I would have watched the top left one but apparently they just serve as some kind of catalyst to the backstory. Maybe I'll watch the pink one.
>>12906002>makes $1 mil a year streaming for 2 hours a day 5 days a week>people think their talent will leavelol
>>12878778>tfw they'll get first dibs on PS5 gamesand that means they'll have nothing to play
>>12906511>just stream once a month>earn a fat paycheck from superchats, sponsorship and merchah yes, truly a black company.
>>12903834retarded misinfo spread by holoshits. Just position the head slightly lower and it's fixed
Holy shit, Gura killers!
>>12906656Meanwhile at nijisanji:>anycolor takes 50% revenue cut (superchats, memberships, merch, etc)>management sucks at getting permissions and often the talent needs to get it directly>riku doesn't give a fuck and keeps releasing waves which is diluting the viewership>have to pay collab fees to collab with big JP livers
>>12878778its Sony so no
>>12878778Rin: Feminism Maru: DiversityKashi: LGBTItsuki: CensorshipKagase: PoliticsAlba: Pronouns
>>12878931>None of them look like whoresSasuga Snoy
>>12878778Itsuki looks cute.
>>12902478I was never gonna watch them anyway, and yet I'm still somehow pissed off.
>>12878778Wth?Other than Itsuki, they look incredibly dull for vtuber designs.
>>12906002I don't support hololive. But I would support them over Sony. Seriously Sony is a huge megacorp
>>12907628The shading on these models is oddly muted. Maybe they’ll be better at high res and in motion but the designs are pretty simple, color schemes a little muted, none of them seem to stand out particularly. Compare say Ayane or Ina. Busy as fuck, arguably slightly over designed but eye catching and impactful. Can always tone it down with the first alternate casual outfit if you want but these aren’t going to inspire a lot of fanart based on design that’s for sure
>>12907628They look like they were designed for an anime rather than a vtubing model.
>>12878778I'm sure they will be fine because they're not some Western whores although I wonder how much would they even stream because it sounds like the whole project is pretty much Hololive alternative on steroids, multimedia stuff with manga/anime/games/whatever so they might be very in character all the time and not really build any parasocial links with their audience after a set number of streams they just go and graduate without goodbye once their role's have ended (i.e. character get's killed in the manga etc.) it might be very different from your regular Vtubing.
>>12880402hololive is still a tech startup not some huge ass corpo, same with Anycolor and any other agency other than the one with SONY music behind it.
>>12907833>>12907788True, they have anime coloring and a lack of midtones.Should look even worse in motion.But designs are only there to get people through the door, it's all about the personality and skill if they're worth anything.
>>12886003some bad boy vampire faggot jap twilight fanbase seem to adore, pretty cringe.
>>12908233hololive alternative only makes sense because people like the characters already, which took years of building the fanbase domestically and internationally. Right now no one even knows who these vtubers are. That includes the vtubers themselves! I'd argue it took myth 6-12 months to really find their groove and identity but even they were buliding off the work of 6+ JP/ID gens. This would be like trying to sell a manga about Sora, Roboco, and Choco 3 months after their debut.
>>12886268they want to sell their shit to china
Sony market cap is......$153.37 billion
>>12890387>judging chuubas by design
>>12908734Anime/carton type coloring and shading can be a valid sylistic choice but for an avatar it seems like a terrible idea, especially for the hair. The head is the focus like 99% of the time while streaming. I've always admired how Ina does her color and shading while working around a very flat anime style face without it being too jarring. Some of these border on appearing lazy
Here is the food chain of vtubersIndies < Small corpos < Nijisanji < Hololive < SONY
I look forward to seeing how Microsoft will fuck up chasing this trend.
>>12891636actually they both started making phone apps and VR shit and switched into Vtuber agencies but yea it's not the same, still the Vtubers themselves can be great for all we know, certainly better than some EN "indie" twitch shit.
Sure. Why not.
>>12908914YES DUDE EVERYONE FUCKING JUDGES A BOOK BY IT'S COVER. YOU PROBABLY DO IT TOO DON'T FUCKING LIE
>>12878778Hell no! FUCK SONY!
>>12906742can you pay collab tax with your body?
>>12878778Didn't netflix tried getting into a vtuber thing? Is that thing still relevant?
>>12892872Chuck's Tucks for Bucks?
>Hitoshiro Itsuki>@weee_desuNow there's a name I haven't heard about in a long, LONG time. I wonder what her disability is.
>>12878778No, I fucking hate Sony.
>>12909035>Indies < Small corpos < Nijisanji < Hololive < SONY < Ksonlet me complete that for you
>>12909035Makes sense if you add vshojo between holo and niji
Can't wait for them to stream Sony hits like Bloodborne and... Have a watchalong of taledega nights I guess
>>12901472>tech jacketsNo thank you
>>12909425crunchyroll hime is actually pretty great and have viewership on niji EN level
>>12909425Yeah, their vtuber just posts short videos on their official channel once in a blue moon.
>>12878778>sony slavesI hope they get paid properly
>>12910949>Play exclusives games made by SONY>Meanwhile Holo and Niji can only get permissions to play 1 fucking SONY game and only one chuuba can play it and not the rest plus for limit time. Hope Nintendo and Xbox fuck them with their permissions
>>12903536>Watch Fujima Sakura instead>https://youtu.be/IrqXCa6BxWMShe was way ahead of her time. Too bad 22/7 didn't pivot towards that Vtuber content
>>12912950would be funny if she ends up also beating these Sony chuuba viewershipimagine getting mogged by your own subsidiary
>>12912950>crunchyroll hime is actually pretty great and have viewership on niji EN levelIt helps that Curnchyroll Hime was a mascot character way before Vtuber was a thing
>>12879085the ocean? what ocean
>>12878778Budget Arknights? Budget Arknights.
Does this mean no more snoy permissions to holos?
This shit is hilarious Holobronies can’t even hate because they’re also Corpo
>>12878778so sony only has fucking JP vtubers?no thanks. The only reason I gave NijiEN a chance is because they're EN. if Sony doesn't have EN, I won't. I fucking won't.
>>12878778>no malesBoring as shit.
>>12920385That's exactly what it means. Get ready for more shitty indie horror games.
