VTuber agency PRISM Project has announced the talents of its sixth generation, which is also the first all-male lineup. The new talents are Jun Akane and Yuki Kitashiro. Debuts will begin on June 9, 2023, at 7:00 PM (PST).
The new PRISM Project VTuber lineup comes as a result of the agency’s August 2022 talent auditions. They reported that they have received over three thousand applicants from twenty countries and territories worldwide. This also follows the recent debut of its fifth-generation talents back in April this year.
PRISM’s General Audition 2022 placed a strong emphasis on advancing candidates who showed outstanding promise in developing not only their abilities and experiences as online content creators, but in bringing together a group with diverse skills, backgrounds, and personal accomplishments. Audition evaluators assessed candidates with a particular eye towards identifying talents with the potential to push the boundaries of what virtual talents can achieve, in both the online and offline entertainment industries.Statement from PRISM Project on the auditions
Meet the New PRISM VTuber Talents
Longing for escape from his life on the streets, Jun Akane found himself tempted by rumors of magical treasure that could change his life forever. A chance meeting with a mysterious bird led him to discover four magical stones with power over the elements, giving him the arcane power to overthrow the pirate lords that terrorized his island. As the new pirate captain, Jun raided and plundered the seas, but soon realized that he lacked the greatest treasure of all–friendship.
A prince of a cold, icy northern kingdom, Yuki was identified at a young age for his magical talents but found himself pressed into service not as a diplomat-in-training or a great general-to-be, but as a child assassin. Rumors of his ghastly deeds spread, and so too did his internal conflict over what he had become. Darkness threatened to consume him whole, but at the brink of losing complete control, fate gave him a chance at redemption and guided him towards purer aspirations – that of happiness and acceptance.
With the sixth generation incoming, PRISM Project’s current VTuber lineup now totals to 15. Its existing lineup include Hoshifuri Iku, Tokimori Aoi, and Ibuki Meno from the First Generation; Kamishiro Rita and Araka Luto from the Second Generation; Miyoshino Shiki, Suzune Nia, Pengin Pina, and Rikudou Yura from the Third Generation; Kamizuki Naki, Nagare Sara, and Anon Non from the Fourth Generation; and Ami Amami, Kou Tsubame, and Lana Shikami from the Fifth Generation. Ushio Sumi who was part of the Fourth Generation, graduated from her VTubing activities on January 2022.
