Did anyone see the reset button lately? We're in a bad future right now.

Oh yeah these VR idols have been popping up everywhere lately, one even showed up in a Builder's School segment for Dragon Quest Builders II.

None of those are VR idols lol They're virtual youtubers. Every one of them have a channel in youtube, with Kizuna Ai having the biggest with more than 2 million.

But at least in part you're right because they are appearing in TV, magazines, anime and in so many places because of their popularity.

I got hyped and looked for the name Kizuna AI as soon I read the first sentence. So disappointed that she's not in the cast.

She's probably busy with her things but at least she will sing the opening haha I really wanted her and Kaguya to be on the cast tho, maybe in the future.

It's another Hatsune Miku situation where everyone but her gets put in an anime.

I had no idea there were so many of them. I barely heard about like one or two...
If it's short I might watch this thing when I'm bored.

I have no idea how this will turn out but I'm definitely not skipping on this. Sasuga Anno-sensei.

But where the fuck is Kaguya Luna? :(

Looks interesting yet I don't know what to feel about this.






Time won't fly,
it's like I'm paralyzed by it.
I'd like to be my old self again,
but I'm still trying to find it.

Anyone knows what an Ideal Cooperation is? Just a way to put Anno's name on the project and trigger talks about it?

"them" releasing singles (and probably gaining profit) says so otherwise :/

Is this even a good idea? Live Anime? Most thing I probably will see is their hair clipping through their body.
