VTuber Legend Synopsis: How I Went Viral after Forgetting to Turn Off My Stream
Yuki Tanaka, 20, a former wage slave, now works among her idols: the streamers of Live-On, one of the leading Japanese VTuber companies. As the beautiful and educated Awayuki Kokorone, she only offers the most feminine of contents. Unfortunately, her subscriber count and her savings are in the doldrums. One night, after Ella Yuki thinks she’s finished broadcasting her, she has a few cold beers—and more than one rude joke—while she watches the Live-On video files. But viewers of her hear it all, and videos of her risqué and drunken comments go viral overnight.
Yuki thinks his career is over… until his manager reveals that everyone at Live-On has been waiting for him to blow up the whole time and gives him free rein to drink live. Freed from all feigned purity, she slips right into her new “rowdy drunk” persona and is embraced by her fellow Live-On VTubers, who happen to be just as crazy as she is! Her visits and her income skyrocket, and for the first time in her life, Yuki’s job is really fun.
