She has been Active in VTuber Industry since Early Days
Hizuki Miu made her debut in October 2018. She is a “Futuristic VSinger. Communicating from the Future and Working as a VTuber in this era”. She is one of the oldest talents who has been active in the VTuber industry since early days, and has become a symbolic talent of WACTOR Production.
On January 16, 2021, she released a video in Español. This video was well received in Latin America, and is considered to have led to the expansion of her own popularity in the region, as well as the expansion of her company, WACTOR Corporation and WACTOR Production, into the region.
Could the Problems Surrounding WACTOR Production have Affected Her?
However, company and agency gradually began to unnaturally suspend the activities of a succession of talents, leading to a situation of smoldering distrust and dissatisfaction among some viewers and fans. This reached its peak when popular TV personality Hina Misora suspended her activities, and from around February 2023, voices began to surface that harshly criticized the company’s and the firm’s management stance and treatment of the talent. As of June 2, company has continued to suspend the activities of many of its talents, and the state of confusion continues.
During this problems, She did not mention these series of issues related to WACTOR Production and continued with his normal activities.
It is unclear whether the aforementioned series of problems had any impact on her “Indefinite Hiatus,” as she has been active for a long time as an established talent. Unfortunately, however, it is unlikely that viewers and fans will view it as having had no impact at all.
Her buzz to Latin America and Spanish-speaking countries led to WACTOR Production, which at one point had a number of talents who became popular in the region. However, due to the series of problems mentioned above, WACTOR Production has now lost support in the region, many of its talents have left, and even the iconic Hizuki Miu has announced an indefinite hiatus from the company.
The future of WACTOR Corporation and WACTOR Production has become one of the most important topics in the entire VTuber industry. We will continue to closely monitor information provided by viewers and fans in Latin America, and will keep a close eye on the future of company and agency.
