Basic bitch info if you already know vtubers but, even then, a well written introdutory article

>Business article about chuubas
>Mentions PekoMoona

Definitely some of the better mainstream coverage of chuubas so far.

And why did you bring this up now?

>> No.10536711

Usually this kind of article talks about Kizuna Ai, Gura, Pekora, Nijisanji, Vshojo etc. With pictures of them.
This one is almost entirely focused on Pekora. And then wastes a picture on the netflix vtuber. Why are nousagis like this?

Not even a nousagi but I kinda found it cute how much this fucker obviously likes Pekora. I'd rather have a nousagi write an article like this than have another ameteurish cringe BBC "look at this weird shit" segment any day.

I found it pretty cringe when he started talking about the "deep" friendship of pekomoona. It's like when you are explaining anime to your normie dad and then you talk about the deep friendship between Naruto and Sasuke.

They're not wrong, both do fight for being the "household name" in Japan, not that you new fags to vtubers would actually know about that.

Makes sense. Hololive is a lot bigger and a lot more popular which is why they get all the mainstream coverage. Nijisanji is nothing more than a footnote.

Ofc they're a rival anon as both of them are the biggest behemoths of the vtubing agencies we have today. The only other agency who can somehow fit the description is Vshojo but only faggots who will mention them

>> No.10544399

Thank you OP I was struggling to read it behind the paywall without giving my money to the tribes of Judea, the article seems mostly ok but they still managed to get some simple shit wrong like with the term "graduation" being used by only one agency it's so easy to find it aint true...

I still can't believe Netflix named their chuuba N-ko. Sure it's meant to be read as えぬこ but I'll always read it as んこ, poop.

Vshojo have 8 members and only like 3 of them can pass as big, they get mentioned by twitch fags that also watch their indie collab partners and such as a company I'm not sure if they would make it into top 10 it depends how you compare them really Vshojo hardly gets any sponsors and I;m not sure how they're making enough money through a cut from merch sales lewd reputation aint that great for business, that's why they're trying to get away from it,

Full respect to the author, this is one of the better "here's something new in nerd/weeb culture" articles I've ever seen.

That's why I said "somehow fit the description" because the disparity between both Hololive and Nijisanji have with the rest of their competitors are just that massive butthen again to diminished them like that is a bit too much IMHO. If they don't make it into top 5 or even 10 chuuba agency interm of business aspect (how much capital and leverage they have, profits the make each year, etc.) as you said, then who else?

This is something that's observed across a whole bunch of hobbies/venues: brands will attach themselves to anything so long as there's
a) money
b) a solid likelihood that their brand's image won't be tarnished
In this case, the seiso mentality actually *causes* vtubers to be marketable, since (mostly) inoffensive cute girls/people are an easy thing to leverage for your marketing.
Ultimately if you have a desire to make your interests unpalatable they have to have some intrinsic aspect to them that makes advertisers recoil, either by touching on topics that the majority of people find distasteful or being offensive in some way that being associated with you is toxic.

Ai never shilled western brands until long after her hype train passed, and is also currently a husk.
Also of course it was corporate you retard. New tech(mostly).
We're lucky vtubers kept the based parts about Ai, like joking about sexually harassing younger women, and dropped the corporate parts.

Also, Ai didn't fund her venture on Superchats or memberships like most vtubers do nowadays. Genuinely two completely different worlds.

They aren't even close to the same level, but at least as far as exclusively Western agencies go they are a pretty clear number 1. I'm not super in sync with corporations on JP side at all besides the 2 big companies so I'm sure they have some other companies that are probably of a comparable size or bigger than Vshojo, but Tsunderia or whatever other Western companies aren't even close to Vshojo in popularity
