We really do live in a society (of the spectacle)
Im pretty sure consoomerism wont kill us its either fascism nukes or climate change but not watching people larp as japanese cartoon characters online
Nothing has been safe from politics. It's the most convenient form of "intellect" while indulging the primal need for drama.
That's all it is, schoolboy gossip for adults.
It explains why there's more grown men whom believe in flat earth and reject actual NASA pictures
this is my multiverse of madness
i'm a vtuber and i treat it as early transhumanism plus acting. it's fun to be my idealized self and get better at acting and being social to people. i'm building a small community where we talk about shit and play games, it's fun. i shut down the parasocial stuff/gfe stuff hard though, so i wont ever grow big but im okay with that.
when I can upload myself into a robotic body it'll be good
>>15116>i shut down the parasocial stuff/gfe stuff hard though, so i wont ever grow big but im okay with that.
good for you, unironically
That's good and all
But i really hope your avatar isn't an anime girl
I saw some vtubers unironically try to do the shitty whiny anime girl voice and one even faked a engrish accent
I can not fathom why people would like that
you dont need to act like an anime girl if your avatar is one you know
yeah, the avatar can be little more than a glorified profile pic, it's the way the vtuber interacts that really matters.
Some Vtubers are amateur voice actors which is why some put on a whole persona and manner of speaking.
That explains a lot and why it sounds so unnatural, because voice acting isn't just doing a high pitched voice
But that really doesn't explain when some fake a japanese accent though
Not sure what that accomplishes other than trying really hard to make people think you're japanese
got any rrats?
And I thought I had issues with my looks.
I can sympathize with it even though it seems odd how detailed these requests are. So many photos can just make you look real bad. u_u
for context, as a big fan of this one,
she was an outcast kid that got really obsessed with Japan as a tween, brute forced her way into learning Japanese by talking with Japanese people online, became a big NicoNico streamer, then went to Japan to become a jpop idol where she eventually got fucked over by her manager (all while still underage), then forced to move back to her home country and scrape by since she left to be an j-idol before finishing high school
, long story short she developed severe western and Japanese beauty standards mind worms.
She worded herself too tritely (the issues of titter's 400 character limit) but honestly understandable if you put yourself in their shoes.
For a second I thought you were talking about Applemilk
vtuberism is some next-level lunacy, i think it might even be worse than furfags and ponyfags
yeah it sucks that vtubers got coopted by corporations trying to turn them into idols, its been said since day 1
you're saying this as if vtubers weren't aimed at simps form the beginning with these animegrill larping antics
the one positive is that it shreks IRL roasties so that mid girls can drain money from simps.
I'm waiting for a voice changing software to advance enough so that I can get in on the simp fleecing too.
I'm mostly interested in how the industry will mutate or die in the with the wars, recessions, etc of the 2020s/30s, considering it's so directly tied to the extra income of lonely professionals/wagies, with the exception of sponsorships from various sponsorships
I find vtubers enjoyable
I find it hard to believe the companies will survive in their current form for much longer; just Rushia being fired already rocked the boat quite a bit, and given that eventually we're gonna see vtubers dying, getting tired and quitting, etc., it seems like a given that the current structure of vtubing (or at least strictly japanese vtubing) is unsustainable. I can't see the market growing that much more anyway; english-speaking vtubers might still have quite a ways to go, but for languages with smaller demographics there is only so many people interested in watching vtubers (and its hard to believe many people will learn a language just to understand what a streamer is speaking). Also, after a certain point (which I believe we have reached already to a certain degree) any new vtuber that debuts just cannibalizes on the audience of established talent. Streaming is a very time-consuming hobby to watch, and there are only so many hours on the day. Hololive already struggles quite a bit with people streaming on the same timeslot, afaik (and Nijisanji just doesn't give a fuck and has a billion vtubers associated with them). Maybe advertising money can prop things up for a while, but stricly speaking money coming from simps is a very limited revenue source.
That being said, random people using the software to stream without having to show their faces or for roleplaying a character is probably going to stay for good. It's relatively easy to setup, cheap, and safer than alternatives, if you can avoid getting doxxed.
I genuinely have no idea how you think that vtubing will die. The prospect of being a whatever the fuck and streaming whatever the fuck and not having to use your real face is honestly so enticing that I'd be shocked if vtubing dies.
Obviously I meant corporate (japanese) vtubing, which is an industry and thus subject to all the problems capitalism is known for and as such is by no means guaranteed to survive (at least in its current form); randos using avatars to stream will pretty much never die, as I said:>That being said, random people using the software to stream without having to show their faces or for roleplaying a character is probably going to stay for good.

well who knows maybe vtubing as a industry will die and it will become a form of living on the internet
Larping as an anime girl is an old art
Nothing wrong with using an avatar for streaming, but larping as an anime character should get you ridiculed
It's more accurate to call it performance art or live acting.
this retard calling an exclusively online thing "larp"
vtubing was fun until h*lolive ruined it honestly, i'd tune into a couple of mmbk's streams and it'd be nice
>>16807>pretending to be an anime character>exclusively online
Are you retarded?
who are you quoting
I don't know if this is cope or just ignorance, but straying from the party line will get you socially crucified in China even if you aren't arrested. You only need to slip up once on a current event.
That the company isn't protecting them is a pretty serious issue though.
This is absolutely true, and in some cases backed by major, even state level, backing.
Are you really saying you don't understand the situation you just described? Every company is beholden to the CCP, bilibili is no exception. When they pull a stream for saying something off script the cause is always obvious, in this case it's something that contradicts the CCP's official messaging. This is an action that really does have real world consequences.
Live Action Role Playing (larping) is something you do outside in cosplay. Vtubers can't holographically project the Live2D / pngtuber onto themselves out and about, nor are they in character while at the store or whatever.
Then why aren't the people voicing anti lockdown positions getting excoriated
