Aki's introduction.

"Alona, everyone! This is Aki Rosenthal a.k.a. AkiRose!"

A girl who traveled from a different universe. She has hyper curiosity and dabbles in all sorts of things. Her trademark pigtails float due to some sort of supernatural power.[4]
"Alona, everyone! This is Aki Rosenthal a.k.a. AkiRose!"

A girl who traveled from a different universe. She has hyper curiosity and manages to reach out to all sorts of things. Her trademark pigtails float due to some sort of supernatural power.[5]


Aki is a curious, fun-loving, friendly and determined high school, half elf girl[6] from another universe with a very calm voice and attitude, she enjoys singing and belly dancing; hobbies that can be seen combined in her original song "Shallys". Aki's streams are considered chill and wholesome, this can be seen in her gaming streams as it is rare for her to lose her temper, usually remaining cheerful. She also enjoys drinking as she has done streams talking to the chat while drinking and eating.

Aki also has a mischeavous and even lewd side, as she is not above playfully teasing other hololive members or her viewers, however she deeply cares for them.

She greets her viewers with "Alooona!" (アローナ) and she says good bye with "Otsuta-ru, bye bye" (おつたーる バイバイ).

  • On 23 May 2019, she made an appearance in hololive's collaboration with Dawn of the Breakers as one of the characters alongisde Roboco, Natsuiro Matsuri, Shirakami Fubuki, Minato Aqua, Yuzuki Choco, Oozora Subaru and Ookami Mio.[35]
  • On 4 December 2020, as part of the celebration of her getting her fourth 2D costume Aki announced that a key bag charm replica of the key she wears on this costume would be available as merch for a limited time, available from 4 December to 4 January 2021.[36]
  • On 13 August 2021, hololive's Twitter account announced that 12 members including Aki (representing the Rakuten Eagles) would participate in a collaboration with the six professional Japanese baseball teams from the Pacific League, each team represented by two hololive members. The collaboration include promotional merchandise that could be brought, including hats, posters, keychains, among others, also a promotional match between ORIX Buffaloes vs SoftBank HAWKS scheduled for 3 October 2021 at the Kyocera Dome Osaka stadium called "hololive day."[37]


  • Her fanbase is officially called "Squad Rose" in English while it is called "Rose-tai" 「ロゼ隊」 in Japanese.


  • Units and groups she is part of:


  • Aki is unique among the Japanese branch of hololive as being the only polynymous member whose full name is not formatted in the typical Japanese style (i.e. Last Name followed by First Name) but instead the typical Western style. Likewise her last name "Rosenthal" is also unique within hololive due to being the only last name of Western origin (specifically German).
  • As demonstrated in several episodes of holo no graffiti, Aki's floating twintails are detachable, capable of being "worn" by other hololive members, and are apparently even sentient and capable of talking, moving and flying on their own.[38]
  • Aki is specified to be a half elf from another world, though the details of what exactly that means are currently unclear.
  • In one of the most bizarre elements of hololive lore, Aki is apparently capable of spontaneously producing a wide variety of different objects and materials from between her thighs. In an episode of holo no graffiti Aki involuntarily produced a vast amount of poisonous liquid from between her thighs causing the flooding of the entire office.[39] In another episode Aki was able to will herself into "giving birth" to Oozora Subaru from between her thighs after Subaru had been magically eliminated from the universe.[40] The exact nature of this strange ability and why Aki has it are unclear. Other hololive members have alluded to the fact that it is somehow related to Aki's identity as "a half elf from another world", but they have never specified as to what this means and why Aki has this ability.
  • She is the fourth member of hololive after Artia, Kiryu Coco, and Amane Kanata to join the official hololive Subreddit as a moderator.
  • Aki can play guitar, piano, drums, and other instrument. She can do belly dancing very well and even taught other members on stream, like Coco, Marine, Fubuki and Watame.
  • On Coco's Reddit Meme Review, Aki said that she is not a fan of the TakaMori ship, stating that she prefers MoriTaka.
    • While TakaMori indicates that Kiara is the top and Calliope is the bottom, MoriTaka has it vise versa, in which Calliope is the top and Kiara is the bottom.
  • Aki's name personally given by Motoaki Tanigo, Cover Corp. CEO.
  • Since August 2020 Aki accompanied by Ashino do acoustic karaoke streams every last week of a month.
  • Her avatar in ARK: Survival Evolved is an extremely muscular, bearded male nicknamed "MukiRose".
  • Aki inherited her Siren mother's habit of stripping down naked for seemingly no reason.[41]
  • Her favourite fetish is tentacles.[42]
