Aki Rosenthal (アキ・ローゼンタール) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its first generation of VTubers alongside Yozora Mel, Natsuiro Matsuri, Shirakami Fubuki, and Akai Haato.
Aki is a curious, fun-loving, friendly and determined high school, half elf girl from another world 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).
Her Twitter account was opened on 16 May 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 25 May although she did not start her activity on YouTube until 8 June when her Mirrativ stream that was live on 1 June was re-uploaded on YouTube. Her first stream on YouTube went live on 21 June.
On 17 February, during her birthday stream, she revealed her second 2D costume, a loose coat, with a tank top with ribbons.
Right after midnight on 17 May, she reached 30,000 subscribers, thus making it official that she would be getting a 3D model.
On 9 December, she published on her Twitter account the demonetization of her channel, while she didn't state this was caused by her ASMR videos, most of these videos were made private.
On 1 January, she announced on Twitter her third 2D costume to celebrate the new year, this costume was revealed to be a kimono on a stream later that day. She also published on her Twitter, that her sub channel was rejected for monetization.
On 24 January along with the other hololive girls up to the third generation, she debuted her 3D idol outfit at hololive's 1st fes. Nonstop Story.
On 31 January, she announced on her Twitter account the remonetization of her main channel.
On 29 July, she announced on her Twitter account that her original 2D model would get an updated to the 2.0 version. She debuted her updated model during a stream later the same day, featuring more facial expressions, her hair accesories now can be moved up and down, and as demostrated by herself she can turn freely in more directions, her twintails also received adjustments to reflect these directions changes in line with the model capabilities of hololive members from the GAMERS unit onwards.
- 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.
- Her fanbase is officially called "Squad Rose" in English while it is called "Rose-tai" (ロゼ隊) in Japanese.
- 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.
- 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. 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. 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.
