The previously announced VTuber Legend: How I Went Viral after Forgetting to Turn Off My Stream anime has released its first teaser visual, as well as information on the main staff for the anime series.
Studio TNK (Highschool DxD, Redo of Healer, School Days) is animating the series under the direction of Takuya Asaoka (Redo of Healer, Futoku no Guild). Deko Akao is doing the series composition and Reina Iwasaka is doing the character designs. The official website and Twitter for the anime series has been opened as well.
The VTuber Legend: How I Went Viral after Forgetting to Turn Off My Stream anime is based on a light novel written by Nana Nanato and illustrated by Siokazunoko. Kadokawa is publishing it under its light novel publishing imprint Fujimi Fantasia Bunko. The light novel started serialization on May 2021 and has currently six volumes.
J-Novel Club is publishing the light novel in English, describing the plot as:
Twenty-year-old former wage slave Yuki Tanaka now works among her idols: the streamers of Live-On, one of Japan’s top VTuber companies. As the gorgeous, polite Awayuki Kokorone, she delivers only the most ladylike content. Unfortunately, her subscriber count and savings are at rock bottom. One evening, after Yuki thinks she’s ended her stream, she cracks a few cold ones—and more than a few crude jokes—while watching Live-On’s video archives. But her viewers hear it all, and clips of her bawdy, drunken commentary go viral overnight. Yuki thinks her career is over…until her manager reveals that everyone at Live-On has been waiting for her to snap all along and gives her free rein to drink on-stream. Now free of all feigned purity, she jumps right into her new “rowdy drunk” character and is welcomed into the fold by her fellow Live-On VTubers, who turn out to be just as crazy as she is! With her views and finances skyrocketing, Yuki’s work—for the first time in her life—is actually fun!
