VShojo presents the V-riety Show at Anime Expo Lite
Personalities from US-based VShojo will be doing a Japanese-inspired “V-riety Show.” It will be part of the event’s videos-on-demand. Projekt Melody, Ironmouse, Nyanners, Silvervale, Zentreya and Froot participate in this special feature. Most importantly, this is filmed inside VRChat.
VShojo describes itself as ‘a talent-first VTuber company, dedicated to the growth and success of its members’. The agency launched last November 24, 2019.
The “V-riety Show” pops up on Monday, July 5th at 12:00 PM PDT (Tuesday, July 6th, 4:00 AM JST).
Aside from the pioneering roster mentioned above, VShojo also handles Hime Hajime and their latest addition, Veibae. Anime Corner spotlights VShojo during its launch with a brief Q&A with its CEO Justin “theGunrun” Ignacio.
