Asano Sisters Project (朝ノ姉妹ぷろじぇくと, Asano Shimai Purojekuto) is a group of female Japanese Virtual YouTubers, Kunoichi triplet sisters who originally used the same 3D model but with color changes. The project was originally planned to be only one character, Hikari.
- Asano Ruri (朝ノ瑠璃) - eldest sister, blue hairband, purple eyes. Often refers to herself as "onee-san" or big sister. She is the most active in the project and very responsive to fans, on Twitter and during livestream chats. Good at singing, she always works hard and sometimes enjoys alcohol afterwards. In December 2018 she debuted a new model, replacing the headband with a blue flower hairpin.
- Asano Akane (朝ノ茜) - second sister, pink hairband, red eyes. Has not been active since June 2018 as she is on a ninja training journey before making her return on 7 April 2019.
- Asano Hikari (朝ノ光) - third sister, purple hairband, yellow-red eyes. Many of her posts are videogame let's plays. On 19 February 2019 it was announced that she would graduate.
- On 5 December 2019, Ruri and Akane made an appearance in the game Dawn of the Breakers as playable characters.
