>tldr: really fucking long and gay blogpost
pretty much, altough i did know of a few niji members back before hololive really blew up, because i actually watched a pretty large amount of nijisanji clips. (i remember really liking the yashiro, dola, kuzuha, himawari interactions)
that was before I realized there were actual companies behind the vtubers though.
became exclusively a holofag around gen4 3D debuts for a while, stopped watching vtubers completely around the beginning of this year, interest just fizzled out, mostly because i love good interactions between vtubers and holoEN just didn't improve much in that regard and i felt management was too restrictive. i also really disliked /vt/ in the beginning.
so glad i checked out nijisanji again with lazulight debuts, love the chemistry between them, it really feels like friends just having a great time.
i gotta say, regarding the wave 2 debuts, i really fucking love the format of having lazulight host and react to the debuts in real time and then getting the new vtubers on the show after their debuts.
it's hype as fuck, and seeing them go crazy over their new debut song made me smile, whoever had that idea fucking knocked it out of the park.
threads are fun too, like how more experienced anons link other talents and post fun little bits of lore here and there, hope the threads stay this way.
