Sorry, buddy, but you gotta do two hours of Tom Jones karaoke. It's the law.

>> No.9816068

There's sort of two options you can go for:

1 - "fuck you pay me". Have a subathon as the party. Set goals for multiple levels, bit dono rewards, and so on. Potentially, this could be good for getting a ton of money, but if you've only just hit affiliate, it might not work
2 - "fuck me". Do something cool for the viewers. Whether it's bow to demand and do two hours of Tom Jones karaoke, play through the entire Stanley Parable, or do a speedrun on Farcry ( should be doable in 15 minutes ). This will possibly be really boring, or really hard, for you.

Figure out which route to go down, then start figuring out what your chat wants.

twitch is more popular and youtube streaming sucks dick for discoverability

You pretty much don't need to worry about live DMCA (I mean, it could happen, but you're probably okay). Twitch mutes the VOD if it detects potential copyright infringment, but it won't alert the copyright holder, so don't worry there, especially if you're small. IF you upload to Youtube (don't), then YT will alert the copyright holder... Which will screw you massively.

Or just delete/unpublish/don't record the VOD/clips.

>> No.9832351

Debut streams work for corpos because they have an obscene backing. Irys had 300,000 youtube subs before starting. A debut there introduces everyone to her.

You're an indy. Gotta be honest, unless you do a solid GFE or have an existing fanbase you can convert, you'll be lucky to get any viewers in your first stream. Sorry.

I saved my 'debut' for after hitting affiliate, and shilled the fuck out of it for a week. Made sure every one I knew online was aware I'd be doing a debut stream on the Friday, and hit 20 viewer average. Dropped back down to an average of 6 afterwards though. I'm considering a redebut if I do a full upgrade to L2D, but can't realistically pull that off for several months, so might just go for a "fuck it, I exist, and that's your problem to deal with" approach.

I am tempted to do a subathon when I hit six months though. Again, aggressive shilling, and probably actually drop a link here, too.

>> No.9832366

>they're driving away people

One autistic whale is not worth losing even 5 neurotypical regulars. If they can't read the mood you have to DM them and be as brutally blunt as possible:
"Yo, when you do this and say this I feel uncomfortable please stop it."
"Please stop trying to flirt, it makes me uncomfortable"
"No, that other guy isn't doing the same thing you are doing"
"Yes, that guy is doing the same thing and I am giving him the same warning"
"No I'm not asking you to leave stream forever"

If they keep trying to search you for loopholes or try to get closer to you or try to emotion dump on you for sympathy then ban them preemptively. You will save yourself 6 months of grief.

If you have anyone you actually trust, ask their opinions of the retards.

Personally I give them one warning and judge their response while I give the warning, to get a sense of their reading comprehension and cognitive function. If they do the thing again I will ban immediately.

>> No.9832386

i do it on a per stream basis:
first offence gets a verbal warning
second offence gets a written warning in chat
third offence gets timed out, and next time they screw up they're banned.

>> No.9832476

Not debuting is why they're vtweeters though?

>> No.9833009

vtweeting is a mindset. it's not a black and white line. just because you've had a debut stream doesn't make you a vtuber if you stop streaming for months afterwards. save your debut stream for a 6 month milestone or twitch partner celebration. too many envtubers are caught up the in debut mindset and get discouraged when they only get 18 people tops on their debut date.

viewers are tired. it's an hour of some weeb talking about what anime or manga they like, and then an hour of shitty gameplay. everyone is burned out of debuts. don't debut. just start making content.

Ah, I get you.

My debut was an eight hour game 'marathon' (my longest pre was four hours), with a five minute lore drop at the 1 hour mark. I felt it doesn't matter what my favourite colour is, or anything outside of gaming, streaming, and my technoliteracy

Just start streaming, and do something you're comfortable doing and can talk about for hours, even if no one's there in your chat. It doesn't need to be games, either.

Now I see a lot of people online and in wrestling communities trying to tear down the old Snake with what they consider the "Worst promo of all time" but in reality we the masses have been too dumb to understand the level of kino that Jake was throwing down >Everyone over the years have attributed the "You wanna play 21? I've got 22" line as being a sign that Jake doesn't know the rules of Blackjack >In actuality what Mr. Roberts means is that he has a .22 Caliber gun, and that even if his opponent truly has the perfect hand he will not walk away the victor because Jake is vicious and will do anything to win. >The line "Do you wanna play blackjack? I got two of those too" is then him saying that he has two actual blackjacks, a type of crude club used to bash people >Finally the line "You wanna play Aces and Eights? I got too many of those" is probably the most kino of them all >Aces and Eights goes by another name. They are called "Dead Man's Hand" because it is said to be the cards that Wild Bill Hickok, a famous outlaw, was holding when he was shot dead >Jake is then implying that he has led a trail of men who thought they could best the snake only to wind up dead at his hand over the years. It's time to face the facts, that even while ballooned off his ass on enough drugs to kill a bull, Jake Roberts could still cut a more cerebral promo than anyone else in the history of the business

Yes, it's harder as a male but that's because the audience for males is so much lower and "hurr hurr do the fujo thing" won't work for most people who try it because they sound like awkward weirdos because they lack social skills. You actually need to be entertaining and have a sociable personality because you can't fall back on just being a cute girl. If you aren't already that, in all honesty you probably won't just suddenly learn it

People like to knock BungoTaiga and he's a complete dickhead even with the other accusations aside, but he succeeded where tons of males who started at the same time or even earlier failed and still to get views a year and a half later.

>> No.9894184

>it feels like I'm about to explode
It sounds to me like the muscles for proper breathing are underdeveloped. It's just like lifting weights; you're going to be tired because you're exercising muscle groups you haven't worked before. You should also be focusing on having a wide open, unrestricted airway. If you feel tension creeping into your neck, let go of that consciously until you can do it unconsciously. I sing professionally, but I didn't get that way overnight. It's years of experience and diligent work.

>> No.9894955

Anon, as someone taking signing lessons right now. Please know that learning how to use your diaphragm is something that's really hard to learn and it takes time. If you feel like you're about to explode, do you know if you're breathing correctly at all? A lot of people don't breathe the right way, as in, their shoulders rise when they breathe. Singers need to breathe using their belly.

You can try a fun exercise, lay on your bed and put one hand on your chest and another on your belly. Take a deep breath, if the hand on your chest moves, you're breathing wrong.

Is it truly hopeless for male vtubers to get a following in the West? I know that some Japanese Nijisanji livers like Kuzuha managed to make it but since it hasn't really happened in the west yet I'm wondering if that is because there is no demographic willing to watch male chuubas here.

>> No.9895228

There are several male chuubas on an incline and the market is only continuing to grow. As female chuubas become increasingly mainstream the small niche for male chuubing will continue to grow in its shadow. We can only hope there's a breakout that really popularizes the male vtuber but I doubt it, Vtubing is too closely tied to the aesthetics of moe, and anime itself is a cheery expressive thing that favors traditional femininity. The underlying connection of "omg I wanna watch a REAL anime girl" that created VTubing's niche simply doesn't apply to dudes. Or, it does, but fujobucks funding entire franchises is a phenomenon limited to Japan that hasn't even spread to their Vtubing scene yet. Western anime fan girls are broke, woke, and thank fuck not actually that insane by comparison, and even then they are like 5% of your audience.

I'm a male chuuba averaging around 20 viewers a stream, which I realize is small potatoes, but it feels pretty nice to have that many people watching and enjoying the content I want to share with others.

Kuzuha is the biggest niji member with over a million subs and pretty standard anime avatar, he just happen to be really good at Apex and play it very consistently, if a Western dude with pro-gamer skills decides to stream as a chuuba he sure have a chance.

Hololive got popular due to clips of their members saying "nigger" in minecraft, Matsuri piss stories and Korone's endurance streams among othe things not their idol concerts although they sure made a bank with those. What really helped hololive is promoting them as a team and members constantly promoting each other, that's the aspect that newer agencies in the West try to imitate and it seems to be working pretty well.

I thought he'd already tried it out, but I don't think he would do as well as he's already doing. I actually used to watch a lot of his videos when he was on the smaller side just commenting over his League games.
The reason is this. Sykkuno is an actual heart throb and being an anime boy irl is more attractive than being a fake anime boy with a funny voice to a fairly large viewership. Easy enough, it's a lot harder to be born a hottie, which is not to say the guy hasn't put the fucking work in because he has. Does he control the entire available viewership though? Not at all, there's always more opportunity so long as there's a million new suckers born every day. If you're chasing the female coomer demographic though, it's pretty safe to say that in the west they like the goods to exist.
I really want to believe a piece of advice I saw posted on here months ago when I first started working on my chuuba: All the males who are successful right now would still be successful as a disembodied voice. I think that anon was referring to the fact that many of them brought a prior fanbase into their streaming gig, but I also think it refers to the quality of persona expected of a male streamer. Male streamers ARE by far the most popular, and I think the key difference between them and male vtubers right now is the synergy between character and presentation. There's way too many dapper suave ikemen bartender hoodie whatevers running around but do they fit their avatar at all? Fuck no. When I watch some 300 pound neckbeard gorilla plop his ass into a gamer chair to destroy some kids on whatever kuso BR is relevant this week, I know exactly what kind of beast I'm dealing with, he knows it too, and it's fun. Too many male tubers come off as disingenuous, tryhard, or just uncanny, and for all the trouble they put into design they're not pulling the numbers of some guy wearing a png of a snake. If I could add my own piece of advice to any male tuber about try it out, it's take it easy.

you kinda need to have a personality. male chuubas who dodge the try hard trope end up falling into the boring personality trope. you can load up all the vtubers live right now and see that most of 500+ who have less than 3 viewers are silent, never say anything, and just aren't entertaining to watch.

>> No.9897747

Sure I get that. What I meant is, don't try to act like you're your character? Or not to an extend where it's too intense? I feel like things can get real cringe if you try to act and sound like whatever character is supposed to look and act like. Find a model that suits your personality already, don't try to invent a personality to revolve around your character.

>> No.9898052

some of the best streamers put on a character. pewdiepie, jerma, markiplier, ninja, shroud, xQc, HasanAbi, Summit, all of them. Twitch or Youtube or otherwise, they all put on a character. the way they act on stream isn't the way they act irl. but they've figured out how to bring that personality out onto a stream even if it means overly exaggerating parts of it in order to convey it more effectively to viewers. males who want to become an anime character already have poorly conceived notions of what a character they want to act like despite having no idea how to actually act like it.

>Find a model that suits your personality already, don't try to invent a personality to revolve around your character.
exactly. your personality should be your personality just turned up to 11. that's what makes a good streamer. too many males forget that being a vtuber is no different from being a streamer with an avatar. i've seen too many /asp/ies fall into the trap of trying to play a cartoon character which doesn't work for streaming.

>> No.9898313

>I just wonder why we haven't seen any male in the west manage to pull off numbers like he has?
because anime is much more accepted in japan as a cultural thing. not so much here in the west. in the west, the main pillars of content creations comes from traditional face cam streamers. which is what /asp/ has been saying as a thread for several months. any male who is good enough to succeed as a vtuber has the chops to do even better as a face cam streamer. you can be the ugliest son of a bitch with a webcam, but if you can make someone smile and have a good time you're gonna do well. anime avatars are already a huge filter for most viewers.

It's partly hyperbole.
But for the most part with anime art girls get away with simplified art styles obfuscation the more difficult parts of clothing, e.g. you don't need to have as fine of textures for most female drawings/models.
However for male models those textures and details are basically required because men need those minor details to stand out on account of needing to look more masculine.

Six is 3 basic shapes with minimal folds or potential shading. It's a very simple and thus cute shape.

Mono is filled with textures and folds which complicate the clothing.

I have been working on my comedic style, and while it's worked quite well in discord servers, I wonder if it would work in a Vtuber format. In essence, I call it "extreme wrongness" where I confidently say things that I know are totally wrong and then defend them.

best one I ever did was about horses, where I claimed they were in fact "flesh death machines" that are waiting to crush our skulls with their hooves once you turn your back on them and that horseriders are the most bravest people in the universe for keeping the horse threat at bay.

This'd go further into deliberately getting huge basic facts wrong at all time and misunderstanding everything. That is at least, the character I'd play, but I don't know how much audience there'd be for an entertaining retard that does too little thinking?

Sorry to reply to an old post but Kuzuha is not popular only because of his FPS skill (which at times can be debatable as he plays like an ADHD kid after a missed dose of Ritalin), he was drafted by Nijisanji as an indie who used to be in a League esports team, and inclined alongside everyone else due to being entertaining and making friends. If people wanted Apex skill they'd watch VGorilla. The Nijisanji brand helped him a lot even if he entered with his indie fanbase, as Nijisanji = interacting with (You)r oshi and being featured in events, so he is not comparable to indies or even Western indies in the slightest. You shouldn't look at his numbers as an indicator of anything, as Niji males are popular yet an outlier because no vtuber outside them is finding that kind of (organic) success.
Western fans are loud but they do not make up a big portion of kpopfags, those are mostly underage, and the big non-Korean paypiggies are SEAgirls (no seriously, they just type in English, I've been in these circles)
And relying on fujobucks will get you nowhere. You can point to Chronoir all you want, but if they focused on fujopandering they would never find this kind of success. If you want to see real fujopandering success look at male idols. They coast on their majority female fanbase with singing/idol activities and teetee, like any boyband. No one here wants to be a male idol.

Seriously, don't think you can make it on the backs of fujos. Reject that notion, please. Not only would it be uncomfortable to force, they will not even care if you're obviously forcing it, and they won't care if you aren't already popular.
