Quitting Vtuber Activities

This has been a really hard choice that I've been mulling over for quite some time, so please bear with me. As stated, I will no longer be participating in Vtuber activities.

To be clear, I will still be making art, making music, and I may still use my model for karaoke streams for fun. At the end of the day, I will always be a creator, and I still want to take on fun projects and work with Live2D. I just cannot see myself continuing in the direction I have been going.

What it comes down to is the pressures of what it means to be a Vtuber, and it's unfortunately not a lifestyle I'm able to live by. Since beginning Vtubing, I have never felt more anxiety and pressures from not only my peers but also by fans and the Vtuber community.

This year, I want to focus on myself and new projects that leave little to no time to keep up with streaming and Vtubing especially. I will still stream when I can because it's something that I truly love, but I've decided to go back to my roots: art and creativity.

I want to help others strive for their dreams as well, which means creating art for other Vtubers and their projects. But, I just can't do it all, so I'm finally deciding.

Thank you all for the generous support you've given and the projects we've brought to life. Thank you to all the amazing people I've met. Truly, all of you will be in my heart forever.
