Kizuna Ai revealed on December 4, 2021, she will be on an indefinite hiatus following her Hello World 2022 live concert.
Kizuna AI is one of the most popular VTubers out there and one of the main reasons why the concept of virtual YouTuber is so popular despite being around for years on Niconico Douga. However, Kizuna Ai has barely rested since her debut and big break in late 2016.
Kizuna Ai initially focused on game-related streams, but then also started singing like a Japanese idol pretty quickly and mixed game, quiz, and chat-only streams. Along with streaming, all of this becomes important content for VTubers. Especially those affiliated with Hololive and Nijisanji agencies in Japan.
Nowadays, it is also the norm for Japanese game studios to specifically call VTubers as guests during live streams. Or ask them to promote upcoming games as official ambassadors.
Many game studios or anime franchises also started using their own characters as VTubers. So it’s funny to see iconic characters like Creamy Mami or Lina Inverse become VTubers when the concept wouldn’t have existed in the first place without them.
