Vtubers are transforming online culture in a positive light. More and more people are now able to make videos on Youtube, stream on Twitch, and so on because they do not have to face the fear of being seen on camera. Not everyone has the ability to stream, however, Vtubing is making it easier for everyone to be a part of streaming. With the rise of Vtubers we are seeing more and more unique avatars streaming on online platforms. “A virtual YouTuber or VTuber is an online entertainer who uses a virtual avatar generated using computer graphics. A growing trend that originated in Japan in the mid-2010s, a majority of VTubers are Japanese-speaking YouTubers or live streamers who use anime-inspired avatar designs.”
I came across Takahata on Twitter and absolutely loved the concept of his Vtuber. So, I decided to reach out and hear more about his story. Takahata is Vtuber who bartends, a Twitch ambassador, and an all-around kind soul. In this interview I asked Takahata how he got into Vtubing, What inspired him to have the bar theme, the advice he has for other male Vtubers, and his plans for 2021.
Listening to Takahata’s story is very inspirational.
Takahata collaborates with other Vtubers in his bar and has many entertaining streams you can see on his Twitch page! Be sure to check out all of his social media pages so you can stay in touch with all his plans for 2021!
