Virtual-san wa Miteiru is an anime that brings Virtual YouTubers to life.

The term Virtual YouTuber, or VTuber, refers to a YouTuber who shows themselves as an animated character, hiding their true appearance but still bringing joy to viewers. VTubers featured in Virtual-san wa Miteiru include Hime Tanaka and Hina Suzuki, who together make the rhythmic music duo HimeHina; Siro, the cyber girl, who definitely, certainly, positively has never murdered anyone; the lazy, FPS-loving Hinata Nekomiya; the upbeat Akari Mirai who sexually harasses her juniors; and the lightweight Mito Tsukino, who has a serious superiority complex.

In every episode these VTubers perform nonsense together in skits filled with slapstick, puns and fourth-wall-breaks. From the parody space adventure "Virtual Wars" to the nameless skit about bouncing gorillas, these absurdly funny segments are brimming with excitement. Virtual-san wa Miteiru is a one-of-a-kind comedy certain to bring delight to any fan of Virtual YouTubers!

If you’re reading this review then chances are you have some idea what a Virtual Youtuber (hereafter “VTuber”) is. At the very least, you’ve likely seen a Kizuna Ai screenshot float across your screen at some point, and maybe even watched a video or two. For those living under a rock, some searching on Youtube might provide a better explanation than the brief one here.

In short, starting with Kizuna Ai in 2017 and expanding exponentially there’s been a trend of people who utilize VR technology to manipulate avatars to make entertaining videos. As the name suggests, these videos often live on Youtube. These people are ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (5/12 eps)
Obviously, this "anime" is for fans and people who know about the "Virtual Youtuber" trend, although the story may seem somehow messy and movements sloppy, you have to actually know the characters to really get into this series, I personally find it fairly amusing since I follow these characters on YouTube and it is obviously not vying for the title of "anime of the season", but I think it's mostly directed towards the people who already know the characters, and a way to introduce the characters to other people who may not even know who these "people" are, I can assure you that at least ...

Honestly, this anime had me thinking I was in 2018 and my friend was showing me the unfunniest vrchat video on the face of the earth, and they were thinking it was comedy gold.

Now I'm not a fan of any of the vtubers featured in this, the only one I had even heard of before watching was Unity-Chan, and I think it's definitely safe to say this anime really is not made for people who do not watch vtubers.
First of all, there was genuinely no story for the first half of the anime. None at all, and when they introduced just even a little glimpse ...
