The wait is over
Auditions for the next generation of global talents at the all-girl Vtuber group hololive English concluded on March 26th, 2021. Ever since, fans have been wondering who would be the new members to earn the right to call Ninomae Ina’nis, Takanashi Kiara, Watson Amelia, Mori Calliope, and Gawr Gura from hololive English -Myth- their sempais.
When production company Cover Corp. revealed Project: Hope with VSinger IRyS on July 7th, many fans were taken by surprise. Would more VSingers be announced? Was this the result of the auditions?
We learned in our exclusive interview with the producer of hololive English earlier this year that "the members who will be appearing in the future (will be) based on a 'certain theme,' but that's still a secret."
It was, indeed, a well-kept secret. At least until August 1st, when some parts of it were revealed...
First with "Prelude," and then on August 15th with "Omen," Hololive English released teaser videos offering tantalizing hints about the backgrounds and settings for five new members.
Finally, today, August 17th, Cover Corp. has let the other cosmic shoe drop.
It's time to welcome the new administrators: hololive English -Council-
