Anime Expo Lite 2021 proudly presents a special pair of virtual panels with hololive, one of the world’s top VTuber talent agencies, as part of this year’s two-day, livestream convention running Saturday, July 3rd through Sunday, July 4th.
Join hololive English as it presents a vanguard of their most popular talents including Mori Calliope, Takanashi Kiara, Ninomae Ina’nis, Gawr Gura and Watson Amelia. With over 40 million fans on YouTube, hololive is a preeminent brand in the burgeoning global VTuber (or virtual YouTuber) talent space.
The Grim Reaper’s first apprentice. Because the world’s medical system advanced so dramatically, Calliope became a VTuber to collect souls. It seems that the lost souls vaporized by the wholesome relationships of VTubers flow through her as well. In the end, she’s a gentle-hearted girl whose sweet voice contradicts the morbid things she tends to say, as well as her hardcore vocals.

An idol whose dream is to become a fast-food shop owner. Kiara is a phoenix, NOT a chicken or turkey. (Very important) She works extremely hard since she will be reborn from ashes anyway.

One day, Ina’nis picked up a strange book and then started to gain the power of controlling tentacles. To her, tentacles are just a part in her ordinary life; it has never been a big deal for her. However, her girly mind does want to get them dressed up and stay pretty. After gaining power, she started hearing Ancient Whispers and Revelations. Hence, she began her VTuber activities to deliver

A descendant of the Lost City of Atlantis, who swam to Earth while saying, “It’s so boring down there LOLOLOL!” Gura bought her clothes (and her shark hat) in the human world, and she really loves them. In her spare time, she enjoys talking to marine life.

Amelia heard strange rumors surrounding hololive online: talking foxes, magical squirrels, superhuman dogs, and more. Soon after beginning her investigation on hololive, and just out of interest, she decided to become an idol herself! She loves to pass her time training her reflexes with FPS games and challenging herself with puzzle games. It’s elementary, right?
