Rieri is pretty cute, in kind of a dorky way. A lot of seyiuu these days I think tend to be on the prettier side because they have possible side carriers to consider, and nobody wants an ugly idol/singer/actor.

Fansubbing as a concept is not entirely dead, particularly for older and more obscure shows (not to mention the virtual youtuber fansubbing scene which became very active over the last 12 months), but the large anime fansubbing scene of the 2000s and early 2010s, and all the active communities and websites that sprung up around them, certainly is

These days what you mostly get are a few remaining video encoding elitists, and small groups or individuals that reformat and remux official subs with higher quality encodes - the translation part of anime fansubbing is almost extinct

Remember when there were so many fansub groups working on their own translations for some shows that you had websites to rate, review, and compare the various different groups? Remember when those sites either died or removed their fansub sections because all the translations were sourced from CR/Funi/whatever anyway, and watching fansubs was no longer the norm among anime fans?

>what is virtual youtuber fansubbing?

TL;DR: People adding subtitles to virtual youtuber-related videos and clips.

It started way back with Kizuna Ai in 2016, where people used the (since removed) community closed captions function on youtube to create fan-made subtitles. This practice steadily continued through to around early 2018, when the virtual youtuber scene exploded into life.

The handful of vtubers that were around in 2017 suddenly became hundreds and then thousands by early 2018, mainly due to the propagation of knowledge on how to become a DIY vtuber, and various companies looking to jump in on a budding phemonenon - this event became known as the "Christmas miracle". You'll find that a lot of the channels who debuted between 2017-early 2018 have English CCs on their videos, while practically all videos from mid-2018 onwards have none.

This was because the vtuber explosion had only really occurred in the East, and the entire Western fanbase at that point in time was localized to a single general on 4chan's /jp/ (with around 180-200 unique IPs on average), and a couple of sparsely populated discord channels. The massive discrepency between the number of active vtubers versus the number of English-speaking fans lead to a shortage of fansubbers available to cover the never-ending tidal wave of vtuber activity.

Virtual youtubers became something that only those who understood enough Japanese (or very dedicated EOPs) could realistically enjoy, and the vtuber phenomenon went largely unnoticed or ignored in the West by anyone outside of the places mentioned above. English fansubs started becoming rarer and rarer, to the point where by mid-late 2018 almost nothing was being translated into English at all.

This continued until the end of 2019, when gachafags discovered Hololive* via a hugely successful collaboration event between Azur Lane and themselves. This was the moment that the Western fanbase began to grow substantially, and very quickly you started getting multiple English-translated vtuber videos (primarily Hololive-related) being released on a daily basis. As the community CC function had been removed from youtube, these fansubs now took the form of edited-down clips with hardsubs overlayed on top, reminiscent of how anime fansubs were back in the 90s and early-mid 2000s, only they're uploaded directly to youtube rather than being hosted and shared from fans' own servers and machines

Since around the time of the first Corona lockdowns earlier this year, the Western fanbase has grown exponentially, as has the number of fan-translated videos produced, but they are still largely centered around Hololive. There are people fansubbing Nijisanji** vtubers and a select few others from various smaller agencies and independents, but their output is significantly smaller. Many "popular-in-Japan" vtubers, particularly the trailblazers from the 2017-2018 days, are overlooked by Westerners entirely (except for in that one general on 4chan's /jp/ that can proudly claim it was following vtubers "before they were cool").

*Hololive is a now-hugely popular vtuber agency, although this wasn't the case back in 2018 or most of 2019. Their popularity right now is proportionally far higher in the West than it is in Japan. They state that their vtubers are all "idols", which used to be little more than a running joke, but ended up attracting a lot of zealots and fanatics in their fanbase. Due to the fact their vtubers aren't always 100% seiso***, this has become the source of much drama.

**Nijisanji is another hugely popular vtuber agency - they began around 5-6 months before Hololive did, and thus had a lot more involvement and influence over the vtuber boom in Japan. They are a lot more relaxed with their vtubers, and so are their fanbase.

***Seiso is a Japanese term that means "prim and proper"; elegant, ladylike, maintaining a clean family-friendly image. It's a common joke among vtubers where they boldly state that they are seiso, despite frequently displaying attributes in stark contrast to that claim.

Very good write up, I learned a lot.

>As the community CC function had been removed from youtube

I honestly don't understand why youtube did this. I understand that people can abuse it, but there are a ton of solutions that can be implemented to get around that. Google is such a terrible company.

>these fansubs now took the form of edited-down clips with hardsubs overlayed on top, reminiscent of how anime fansubs were back in the 90s and early-mid 2000s

I personally find these very charming due to how they often add their own editing. Truly the next step in the evolution of hardsubing. I've seen a few channels that do these while at the same time trying to wiggle into the v-tuber bandwagon. These attempts are usually in vain due to the fan subbers being weirdo male otaku with their avatars reflecting that.

Vtuber subs are godawful most of the time. It's an even worse state of affairs than with manga or LNs. Even if fan translation isn't dead, there's a lot of awful translation floating around now because of things like ESLs and MTL getting involved.

>Fansubbing as a concept is not entirely dead, particularly for older and more obscure shows

Are there even newer shows worth subbing? I'm not downplaying the value of fan subbing new shows, but the value of them seems to be significantly lower than several older untranslated works.

It's reflective of the state of the world today - many ESL nations have come online in the last 5-10 years, particularly in various parts of Asia, and the quantity of poorly-formed English you see online has increased dramatically because of this

This is increased further in the vtuber world because East and Southeast Asia have been following vtubers since near the beginning, whereas most Western fans only got into them within the last year

Not in my opinion, but then again I haven't been a fan of newer anime since around 2013 and I suffer from a crippling case of nostalgiafaggotry, so I'm biased

Nah, i wouldn't even say it biased, I think you're right, nowadays anime has dropped in quality.

We where kicked out of our home for loving something that will never exist and are cursed to walk the earth knowing we will never be complete.

My Answer is Hubris:

We thought that we could watch them live without getting attached ourselves, we thought that we were stronger than a "children's show."

Instead we fell from grace for our presumptuous nature and our disregard for the natural order of the things, we started to love them. The moment we loved them our fate was sealed, at first it was idle infatuation but then it turned into a full romance.

We are cursed to know that we love them Anon because we thought that we were better than they.

In a Greek tragedy the hero is punished by the gods for defying their will and tempting fate, they are punished for not believing their power.

We didn't believe in them, and now we must love them for everything that they shall never be...
