On March 10 (PST), Tazumi Riku posted photos on his X (Twitter) account of his visit to Shima Spain Village, a resort facility in Shima City, Mie Prefecture, where a collaborative event with Hyakumantenbara Salome (affiliation: NIJISANJI) and Suo Sango (as above) was being held.

I went to Shima Spain Village today to play~ 😇

On February 5, ANYCOLOR announced that it had terminated its contract with Selen Tatsuki due to “Repeated contract violations and misleading and false statements on social networking sites“. Furthermore, the company’s IR announcement, including the “Impact of Business Performance is Negligible,” has been the source of intense criticism among VTuber listeners and fans.

On February 13, Tazumi Riku released a video statement in response to Selen Tatsuki’s (affiliation: NIJISANJI EN (New)) vehement criticism of the company after her contract was terminated. Since then, there has been a series of scandals surrounding the company and criticism of “Documents suspected to be from Tazumi Riku,” which were temporarily released by Shirakawa Yuri (Independent).

This post is merely a private one that, in “Normal Times,” would not be particularly pointed out, and is not something to say anything about. However, since this was posted in the midst of the fierce criticism from VTuber listeners and fans against ANYCOLOR and NIJISANJI EN (New), it has caused a stir with its insensitivity and irresponsibility.

Tazumi has rarely updated his X account since the beginning, and the same was true when the video was released in February. Therefore, some people have pointed out that Tazumi may not be seriously aware of the current situation in which he and his company find themselves.

The “NIJISANJI EN (New)” we use is to distinguish it from the original “NIJISANJI EN (former NIJISANJI IN / India)” that existed in the past.
