As of August 25, 2023 (PST), it has been Confirmed that New 1 Member may have been Expelled from ANYCOLOR Inc’s VTuber Training Project “Virtual Talent Academy (VTA)”.
Virtual Talent Academy (VTA) is a talent development project that the company offers by utilizing the know-how of the VTuber group NIJISANJI. Several talents affiliating to NIJISANJI have been born as a result of this project.
On August 3, the company announced that it had “terminated the program to the affected VTA members” because “some of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th term VTA members were found to have violated the rules we have established regarding VTA, including strict information management. As a result, 19 of the 29 enrolled members have disappeared.
It has now been confirmed that the name of one new enroller “Naejiro Chiwa (苗代千和)” has disappeared.
The reason why Naejiro Chiwa disappeared from the enrollment column is unknown at this time, but it is possible that he will make his debut with NIJISANJI in the future.
As of August 25, no official announcement has been made by ANYCOLOR regarding this matter.
