>> No.1635043

as the vtuber industry becomes more developed, there will be more shit on the backend to establish. proper employment forms and tax filings for the country they live in. at this point, neither Hololive or Nijisanji will just let people sign up and monetize themselves with personal paypal accounts on Streamlabs without all being established by their internal depts.

>> No.1635494

Niji has been using their new recruitment procedure for a while, in fact I think they're going for a limited group first because of many reasons:
1. If it doesn't turn out to be as profitable as expected at least the costs are minimized.
2. In order to compete with HoloEN they need to find the best they can get, and since Niji's popularity in the west is lower they won't have an applicant pool as huge as them.
3. Unlike Hololive, there's no collab restrictions both temporary or inside their own company, making the need of other members to keep the group afloat less relevant.
4. Less people makes it easier to organize events/collabs.

>> No.1635796

You joke but I feel like they're gonna do something like this. They saw gura and thought "let's get someone with somewhat relevant 'star' power" to compete. After seeing the reddit takeover, it's the kind of questionable, cheap corporate decision I can see them making.

pulling in a known talent with an established commercial brand would be peak levels of dumb. a partnership? i can see that. but i don't see established streamers like pokimane drop everything to become an employee of a mediocre vtubing company.

the content they make don't even overlap that much other than "is a streamer"

>> No.1635922

There's tons of streamers and youtubers who aren't at Pokimane's level but still recognizable enough to be a good acquisition. It's not a dumb idea if it works. Especially since unlike Hololive there's pretty much no content restrictions or subject matter that's too taboo for Nijisanji, and that's the kinda shit that normie zoomers are into.

Yeah. The first wave of Holo debuts already had impressive pedigree but I'm sure their second audition attracted a lot of talent that only became aware of the brand after EN blew up. Odds of getting in are probably awful.
If she's the first Nijisanji then it sounds like they're actually pulling out of the modestly popular vtuber pool. I wouldn't be surprised if all their talent were people int he 100-300 viewer range.

>> No.1641983

Niji talents have more freedom in their content and a more flexible schedule. If you only wanna be a vtuber part time or don't wanna maintain the Disney-tier public image of Hololive then Niijisanji is a better choice.

Honestly none of those sound interesting. Hololive has a bunch of Yakuza streamers even though I like Nui. FFXV could be ok I guess but generally jrpgs are shit for streaming.
Honestly the most fun is when they do games that are very niche but not totally gimmicky(plug&play), stuff that you can play along with as part of your character gimmick, like microsoft flight sim/dcs or train/truck simulator or w/e. The novelty of watching Alice play euro truck simulator with her model reflected in the truck was hella adorable.

>> No.1642375

It really baffles me how vtubers don't try to play new games. For example, Hololive has Sega permissions for months and some of them only played Yakuza series and I think only Korone decided to play different games like Altered Beast, Sonic, Crazy taxi, Streets of Rage 2, etc.

I guess it’s a matter of sticking with what they know or something. Because you’ll get someone like Botan who’ll do a 3 life Zombi challenge or boot up Prey of all games, and there’s Lulu who will spend 11 hours beating Mario 2. I guess it really depends on the talent and how much they love games.

>> No.1642660

There's a couple factors I think. Primarily they're probably motivated by viewers and Minecraft/Apex/Ark/Genshin get the most viewers so they spam those. Additionally though they probably pick content that they're comfortable with since seeing someone play a game poorly and get frustrated/confused would be bad entertainment.

>> No.1642692

APEX is a popular shooter in nipland the way Fortnite is in the west, it's not a big surprise vtubers get addicted to it. The current ARK fad among nijis is a little less spontaneous though, they set a date to start a new company-wide "campaign" and form cliques, claim land and do PvP with each other. It's generating some fun moments and stories.

That said, while Nijisanji gets more permissions, they still suffer from being a sizable company in a country where publishers are less lenient towards game streams in general. You need to go indie (or western) to find better variety.

>microsoft flight sim/dcs or train/truck simulator or w/e
I would fucking love more niche stuff like this from vtubers in general.

It's sounds like you're not looking very hard. Ark is going to be fotm for a few weeks because it's a company wide thing. Same with Apex and CR cup. It's like complaining that almost everyone is only playing Mario Kart the week a Mario Kart tournament is scheduled.

I mean just yesterday you can see Gaku playing some niche freem game, Goose Game, Little Nightmares, and Infection Maze. If you go back a few more days there's Puyo, Mario Sunshine, Nintendo Labo 3d, Mario 3d land, Hanako, Nijionaire, Niji league, Headliner, Ever Forward, Passportout drawing, Donkey Kong, etc. even assuming you don't want games like Dark Souls, BotW, or Pokemon.

Also a lot of their appeal is just talking or collabs where they just do random shit like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HghpCecTVyw without playing anything.

Civ or a grand strategy game isn't happening simply because they aren't popular. The closest you're getting is Ibrahim playing Nobunaga's Ambition and I don't think many people sat through 11 hours of that. A few in KR and ID also played AOE2.

I get it, but it weirds me out somewhat.

>> No.1643493

It's not so strange. Every vtuber has fans who'll watch anything they do that'll talk about them and then fans who're weighing what they're doing against other vtubers. It's the latter group that vanishes, and they're often the majority by necessity.
Then certain content is legitimately just better at showing off a vtuber than others. Like the RPG debuff is always debated because people like Nui exist who subsist off of RPGs but what it really comes down to is that a lot of RPG streams by vtubers ends up getting caught up in the vtuber just reading everything off or getting too into the game.

Nobody cares about skill unless you're a youtuber/streamer who is about skill. My expectations for watching a Chihiro or Kuzuha APEX stream are not the same as when I'm watching someone like Ras.
The whole "idol" thing is so overblown. "Non-idols" are also singing and dancing because thats another source of revenue they can get. Stereotypical idolfans already exist in droves for non idol-things like even wrestling. What the fuck does it even mean to be an idol anymore?

I'm just saying that hololive's whole gimmick is that they're streamers who are also idols, in the traditional japanese sense. Like love live or imas. That's their image.

>> No.1644296

I think this proves you can't compare ID branches to any other branches overall.
Holo ID overall is more lenient than JP and EN. The main example is that all of them can collab with the homos or any other male with no problem, even with the Nijis ID as well.
Also their conversations topics can be more open as well like Moona talks backstage stories when she used to be model once in a while and Anya had a bunch "love consultation corner" streams.
Overall you can't compare the ID branch because it seems, no matter the company, is the most lenient one.

I'm calling bets now, RyuuseiNova is gonna be up a shit creek going NijiEN. Niji has lack of traction overall in EN and this is a fact.

My speculah:
-As a result, much lower subscriber/view count from the get-go, probably no higher than a huge chunk of indies.
-NijiEN probably won't allow a Twitch channel either
-She will be focused more on bridging JP/EN audiences with JP only streams more.
-Her avatar will either be not as good as her old one, or be no better than most of the mass produced Niji avatars (ie, pick a premade), or just be unappealing or generic (Bobon's Niji ID batch, or Chigusa's batch where one of them took a drastic costume upgrade to get out of the schoolgirl abyss).
