Without a doubt, VTuber fashion is gaining in popularity around the world. As a result, it's not surprise that huge corporations, particularly those involved in the geek ecosystem, use this trend to market their products and services. The recent Crunchyroll instance serves as evidence of the foregoing.

Crunchyroll-Hime, the popular anime-focused streaming platform's pet and waifu, will no longer be a basic 2D artwork and will instead become a VTuber with whom users can speak.

VTubers, or virtual youtubers, are genuine content creators who appear in front of the camera via a digital avatar resembling an anime character. They are quite popular these days, especially among anime and video game fans.


So, on October 12th, the Crunchyroll mascot began his career as a VTuber on his own YouTube and Twitch channels. The early reactions, it seemed, were overwhelmingly positive.

Crunchyroll-Hime DEBUT STREAM!

Kristine Fel, a popular TikTok star who specializes in animation and previously partnered with the anime platform to create a short for the 2021 Anime Awards, is a supporter of this project.

Finally, in its live broadcasts on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Crunchyroll-Hime plans to discuss video games, anime, and other things. When the COVID-19 epidemic permits, it will also seek to collaborate with other VTubers and attend congresses.
