7.1.3. Hololive Kiryu Coco firing incident (Hololive 台湾事件, 2020)

Hololive is a VTuber management company from Japan, a subsidiary of a company called Cover Corporation.

When a VTubber either quits of is fired, they euphemistically often call it "graduation". But it is more like "death". The managemente company likely retains all rights to the character.

Ciro Santilli (三西猴, anti-CCP fanatic, 反中共狂热, stupid cunt, 傻屄, CIA agent, CIA特工, 肏你妈的) didn’t know WTF a VTuber was before coming across this event, he’s too old for that. But basically is mostly some Japanese chicks that have live generated anime like virtual avatars that motion track them. They are meant to feel like real-world anime characters, as they can reply to comments to be more interactive.

Hololive is the main VTuber agency. These agencies are similar in nature to modern singer agencies, and even more so to the agencies that build up Korean K-pop idols. They are all trying to turn your youth into idiotic superfluous robots, the opposite of science.

And this is likely exremelly popular amongst the sex-deprived young Chinese people, much like Japanese AV.

Fucking Japanese corporates, curbing freedom of speech in China. Those dudes are going to deserve it when Japan gets invaded by Xi’s fourth Reich…​

The key event was 2020-09-28 https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/4018580 "Japanese VTubers banned for mentioning Taiwan during livestream":

During their most recent livestreams, Hololive Japanese VTubers Kiryu Coco and Akai Haato announced the countries where they have received the most followers based on YouTube analytics. One of the countries that they highlighted was Taiwan because it accounted for seven percent of viewers and they displayed the flag of Taiwan to represent the nation.

  • Pixiv, which is "a Japanese online community for artists" which likely has lots of VTubers,

  • Japanese language, although one of the very extremely erudite and trustworthy comments at: https://boards.4channel.org/vt/thread/1403290/really-makes-you suggests that the Japanese at there is completely broken, and it is likely just a Chinese person using Google Translate

It is however hard to understand the rationale of such posts, why here on China dictatorship?
