On July 23, 2023(PST), the manager in charge of VTuber Akai Haato (赤井はあと / nicknamed Hamchama / affiliating: hololive) released a message from inactive personality on her official Twitter account.
Hello, my name is Akai Haato.
I apologize for not being able to send out any messages until now.
Actually, I have not been feeling well since the beginning of February this year, and was hospitalized immediately after the 4th fes. concert.
Thanks to the support of my family, I was finally able to leave the hospital temporarily the other day and am now recovering at home, although we will have to wait and see.
I am sorry for causing so much worry to my fans, the members of the HOLO Live and my V colleagues, as well as the people at my company and the people I worked with.
Since I left the activity, I have been mentally wrecked due to the side effects of the medication, and it has been all I could manage to do to keep myself together.
However, I was worried that if I sent out the word “hospitalization” to everyone with zero positive factors, I might cause them to worry more than they currently do.
I also did not want to show my weakness in front of everyone.
After consulting with my family, I decided to focus on my own health until I was discharged from the hospital, and that is why I have delayed my report.
Although I still have to stay in bed, I have been able to relax a little more, and I was able to report today with my family and in contact with the manager. I am sorry for the delay.
I am sorry for the delay.
Anyway, I must tell you all that this is not a life-threatening situation.
It will inevitably take some time for him to fully recover, but even so, I hope that he will be able to return home to you slowly, while keeping his body in mind first.
Until then, please wait a little longer. I will surely return to you in good health.July 24, 2023 (JST)
