As a VTuber agency from Japan, this was the first performance hosted by the agency in the United States. Talents of hololive (JP) and hololive Indonesia also appeared on stage to introduce the new culture of “Japan-born VTubers” to overseas audiences.
The 6,000 tickets for the Los Angeles venue sold out in 10 minutes.

Awardees’ CommentsThank you very much for awarding us the Runner-up Grand Prix in the Cool Japan Platform Awards 2024.
VTubers, content originating from Japan, are gaining popularity not only in Japan but also in the rest of the world.
The demand for VTubers is increasing year by year, and we are committed to creating content that is loved by fans in Japan and abroad, and to ensuring the continued development of the VTuber industry and making it one of Japan’s representative cultures.
Judges’ CommentsCongratulations on winning the Runner-up Grand Prix!
In recent years, Japan is often said to be behind in terms of innovation, but VTubers boast unique technology and content in the field of virtual performance, and are widely attracting attention from all over the world.
There are forecasts that the global VTuber market will grow by 35%, and Cover’s first overseas performance in Los Angeles, which sold out immediately, is a good example of this. We look forward to more events abroad in the future!
