The first episode aired, but no subs at the moment. The show is composed of skits with different virtual youtubers in them.

>Those screenshots.

Are they just putting models in second life and talking over it? It looks like shit.



> in second life

No, the software is called Virtual Cast and it was created by the people who owns Nico Nico Douga


>Virtual Youtubers

>No Kizuna Ai nor Disgusting Ojisan

Are they ever trying?

This has gone too far. Please stop.

I think the only Virtual youtuber I actually liked to watch was nekomasu, it was some dude talking about his life struggles while using a foxgirl model he made himself. One day, his newest videos weren't getting subbed anymore and so I stopped watching. Seems he branched out, changed the name of his channel to something else and now posts weird 3d videos. Kind of sad, it was comfy.

It's Anno time.


This is a terrible idea.



No, this is a terrible idea that we can keep at arm's length.

The Gaming Jewtubers that copy this idea is the terrible idea we'll probably have to deal with.



Wow this looks as cheap as fuck.

Holy shit, is that fucking Last Boss Sachiko?



The company behind Ai didn't sell her to Dwango/Kadokawa (the people behind this anime), so they are trying to isolate her from vtuber events as a punishment.



Anno was willing to be part of this mess, if that means he can get away from Eva 3.0+1.0



Yeah, she has a short segment in this first episode.



So they are basically trying to go against her like youtube went against PewDiePie? now I wish that anime crashes.




Kizuna Ai was one of the directors or bigwigs for the anime if I recall reading correctly, so she probably won't have much screentime since it would be a conflict of interests.



Basically this anime is Dwango/Kadokawa trying to cash on the thing that is saving their video service NicoNico Douga from dying

That's just ridiculous. Hopefully the guy_ behind Ai has a spine.

He tried to have a New Years event with AI on Youtube and it was a failure, while the event held by Kadokawa on Nico Nico douga with several of the vtubers appearing on this anime was a success.

So you're saying all i need is the hardware and software and i too can become a little girl. I think Hime has a dark secret.


Was comfy indeed anon.



Anno will try to do anything that prevents him from completing the Evangelion final movie. This is why he decided to direct a Godzilla movie and now this



I always hoped that vtubers wouldn't take on the worst aspects of the idol industry, but when talent companies and corporations got involved I knew it was a matter of time. I don't even like Kizuna Ai that much, but it must have been depressing to do that new years event by yourself and have it go terribly.




Well, that sucks. She's not my favorite but it's regular business for Japan, not even virtual characters are safe from it. Now I hope Hatoba Tsugu always remains niche but popular enough, or popular but never doing crossovers. If anything, crossover only with a gloomy Ai-chan or Luna as some kind of joke video, or Battered Wife virtual youtuber.

Did anyone save the YouTube stream, by chance?




The people behind AI should just use this to build upon AI's personality. AI against the blob that is the upper portion of that picture.


Virtual youtubers are not even PewdiePie tier they are as bad as DarkSydePhil, I cant believe this shit is even still popular its just awful.



The difference is DsP does it on purpose and is funny to laugh at because he's a deliberate lolcow. V Tubers are like giving Jake Paul and all other shitty vloggers that own mansions and make clickbait videos deliebratly over 10 minutes a tv show about living together in a house Jersey Shore style but it's 2d so I guess /a/ will still dedicate a general to this every fucking week.



>I cant believe this shit is even still popular its just awful.

As a heterosexual male, I don't care about quality as long as I can watch little girls playing.



You mean 2d only right?


I liked it.



So Ai-chan Is now Venom Ai-chan. Would be interesting if the creator did a spin of it, with Ai-chan mentioning how she's been dealt a bad hand, and doing some kind of Kamen Joshi situation and protested somehow, though taunting Kadokawa would be suicidal.




Ai is one of the Vtubers who are completely owned by a company. Ai participated in events created by Lide (that means Kadokawa) this January, and none of the Vtubers are owned by Kadokawa. She isn't in the anime, because two companies couldn't find an agreement, and not because of some conspiracy.

Considering how anti collab Activ8 (company behind Ai) is, it isn't surprising. They also have another target demographic, Ai's intended audience is the mainstream and not otaku, that's why she participated in the NHK special but not in the late night anime.

As someone who likes virtual Youtubers, I found this to be awful and cringey. I hope Yua isn't a part of this. Don't want my big titty yandere to be tainted.



As someone who hates virtual Youtubers, this is great.



Thanks for clearing that up, anon, I appreciate it.

>I found this to be awful and cringey.

I don't know if its that bad. Kind of just feels like a bunch of skits you normally see in vtuber videos strung together for 20 minutes. I like spotting the anime references at least.

There's also quite a few plugs for various vtubers in each episode besides the ones doing skits.

I'd agree with you if they weren't total casuals and/or playing gachapon crap. Seriously, that part of Ai Kizuna's RE7 video where she goes through the trap as that man, and then proceeds to do the exact same thing as the MC was laughable.




Truly a man of patrician tastes. The lack of Tanaka ruins this series.

I'm pretty sure even the yuuchuba's whose persona is good at games has someone else play the games while they commentate.



Pretty sure that cardboard box house is bigger than most nip apartments.

Also, according to official angel lore, shouldn't Pekora have constant diarrhea without her halo?



Does the same person direct the mocap for every single youchewbar video out there? It always looks so awkward and stupid. Either way as someone that vaguely sort of likes jashin-chan I'm offended by this and upset that they're making seiyuu say "pls like an subscrib" amongst all the other stupid shit.

That cat looks like a rat. And considering it has a nose-ring, is probably as degenerate as one, too.



I can see the merit in them but, for the most part, they are shit.


Got around to watching the third episode today. This show has its moments, but for the most part it's... not good. If the characters could stop flailing around like octopi for a second it might be better. The trivia segment is slightly amusing with the static character in the background drinking, and random education. Hinata's segment of walking to school is like a condensed form of Chio's walk to school and makes sense for her character and isn't overdone. The virtual wars segment would be better without arm flailing but its somewhat amusing. The Fuji Aoi park bit is ok because the youtuber doesn't flail as much and the gorilla is something different.

The best part of this show so far has been thee "Everyone's Virtual-san" that introduces random small youtubers. I discovered Kaede Higuchi through it and like her a good deal. Too bad someone as mellow as her didn't make it into the show more often.

Funny thing is... my favorite VY is Kaguya Luna, who is loud and hyper. But it works for her and the small video format (plus she doesn't flail like an idiot). I was subscribed to Mirai when she first started because she used to do the ebola chan and eilene videos which were cute. I wish Ebola chan could be in this show.


I'm beginning to think that the only idea Anno contributed to this is letting them use the Eva school uniforms.


The flailing around might be a consequence of the program they're using, it doesn't really do well with body movements.

Also just around to watching episode 3. I like it. The rap segment had me genuinely laughing out loud. My only really complaint is that there is a lack of variety in the sketches, so we are just seeing the same segments each week. Feels very phoned in, especially considering the huge range of characters they have to draw on.

As to the arm flailing, I think its intentional. Firstly, if they didn't move around a lot, they would look really lifeless and trigger an uncanny valley effect. Kind of like when you see a bad face rig set up, and they look like a statue with an eyebrow twitching. Secondly, and I think more critically, they are doing the arm flailing because its supposed to be cute. I feel like they are trying to channel 'look at these crazy virtual youtubers, look how energetic and happy they are'. Its like the next level up from doing weird cutesy voices.

In any case, clearly this show is Anno's modern masterpiece.


File: 2a309e39e45e2cb⋯.jpg (41.64 KB, 704x396, 16:9, 1430777892915.jpg)


This show is clearly the Proof of Anno's lack of soul. His lack of ambition, his lack of action. Just living on the scraps of Kadokawas leftovers. He forgot how it feels to be the underdog that no one believes in and went from making projects he liked to projects that has the highest probability of raking in money. A filthy coward who will never amount to anything.

Press F to spit on his filthy grave.



Anno is literally investing in this project. All the V-tuber anime/TV shows are by Lide.

Lide is a new studio largely funded and owned by Kadokawa Dwango. But Studio Khara is one of the minor investors involved in the project.



>Studio Khara is one of the minor investors involved in the project

I doubt it's been done but I'd like if there was an interview with Anno on this project. It seems like this kind of show would be an antithesis to the stance he's had on anime and otaku in the past.

The fourth episode ended up having the same skits as the last few, and the 5th one also included a music clip for one of the main girls.

They are falling behind on their other shows too.


Fun episode, though the class president doesn't bring the right amount of hype to the "Big trouble Akari-san!" segment. I enjoyed her talking like a Gal though, that was sorta fun.

Unity-chan and Hinata still remain best segments, wonder if we'll get another music video DJ Hinata soon.
