Illustrator / manga artist Shigure Ui designed characters for Oozora Subaru, a talent affiliated with COVER Corporation’s VTuber group hololive (now hololive Productions’ Japanese domestic female group “hololive”) in August 2018.While making guest appearances on the talent’s streaming, she made her debut as a VTuber on May 18, 2019, in response to the talent’s request to “See Mother in Motion!

On May 18, 2023, he celebrated the 4th anniversary of her debut as a VTuber. She is affectionately known as “Uimama (Oozora Subaru’s mother)” by her listeners and fans.

Shigure Ui’s subscribers base was in the low 800K as as of early September, but after the response to the music video for her original song “Shikusei! Loligami Requiem☆” After becoming the first independent Japanese VTuber to reach 1 million subscribers on September 23, she continued to increase her number of subscribers to a record high of nearly 700K in less than 2 months, surpassing Oozora Subaru’s number this time, the number of subscribers has now equaled that of Oozora Subaru.

Shigure Ui’s rapid increase in the number of subscribers is thought to reflect the tremendous response to the music video, which was created from an existing song.

As of 9pm on November 8, “Shukusei! Loligami Requiem☆” music video has reached approximately 54.2 million views.

The “Parent and Child” relationship between Shigure Ui and Oozora Subaru is one of the well-known topics in the VTuber industry, and it is a very rare case that they have almost the same number of subscribers as each other.

We look forward to seeing more of Shigure Ui and Oozora Subaru in the future.
