Currently, there are over 150 VTubers on the NIJISANJI roster, but when the project was first launched there were only eight who, instead of being VTubers, were initially acting as test users for the development of a free livestreaming app for the general public.
Who makes up NIJISANJI's First Generation?
To help celebrate their momentous 5th anniversary, we've compiled fan art featuring the fantastic first generation or "The Original Eight":
Tsukino Mito, a class rep with a deep love for various subcultures.
Higuchi Kaede, a high school girl living in the virtual Kansai Region.
Shizuka Rin, who takes on a kind, elder sister sort of role among the group.
Elu, an elf who adores virtual Tokyo.
Yuki Chihiro, an adorable fourth-grader who also happens to be a magical girl.
Suzuya Aki, who boasts a stunning androgynous appearance.
Moira, the Goddess of Fate.
Shibuya Hajime, a recluse who loves manga and video games.
Have a look and bask in the group that helped put NIJISANJI and the world of VTubers on the map!
