Nijisanji is one of the larger names in VTubing but has come under fire in recent months for the way their business is run such as when Selen Tatsuki was forced to private a music video that had cost thousands of dollars to produce; or when Gundo Mirei was suspended and eventually parted ways from the company after offending Japanese baseball fans.
We’ll keep our ear to the ground for any VTubers who sound suspiciously like a blonde elf in the coming weeks.
