Ayunda Risu (アユンダ・リス) is a female Indonesian Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its Indonesian (ID) branch first generation of VTubers alongside Airani Iofifteen and Moona Hoshinova.
Risu has a humorous, high-energy and extremely friendly personality. Risu's interactions with Moona and Iofi, other hololive members and anyone in general, has given her the reputation of being exceedingly sweet, kind and personable.
According to herself she can be described as cheerful, clumsy and a crybaby.
On 14 August, it was announced on the official hololive Indonesia Twitter account that their 1st Gen members would get a new outfit for each commemorating Indonesia's Independence Day.
On 16 August, she debuted her second 2D costume. In this costume she wears a white floral dress, with a belt bellow the chest, she also uses a small hat on her left ear.
Mascot & Fans
- Her mascot is a pink squirrel that wears a hat, choker and hairpin similar to hers named "Riscot", which was drawn by Aragami Oga.
- Her fanbase is officially called "Risuners" (based on the word "Listeners"), or "Prisuners" (based on the word "Prisoners") for members.
- Risu's original name "Tupaia Splendidula" is assumed to be the scientific name of her species, Ruddy Treeshrew. It could also be a language and word mix of Indonesian ("tupai") and English ("splendid") origin, which fully means "Splendid Squirrel".
- In addition to Indonesian, she can also speak English and Japanese.
- Risu has a notably wide vocal-range, even for a singer. At the request of fans she's been able to portray a considerable range of identities through voice affectation, even convincing impersonations of other hololive members. Risu's fans frequently refer to these identities emulated through voice as "Risu DLC's".
- Because of her wide vocal-range, her whistle-like laugh and having said she's a fan of Korone, the running joke that Risu is the child of Korone and Okayu was created.
- Due to this quality acting as reinforcement to her singing talent, many fans have joked that she has helped restoring Motoaki Tanigo's (also widely known by the moniker "YAGOO") dream to create an idol company.
- She is scared of dogs (an admittedly appropriate trait for a squirrel-girl).
- Her debut-stream featured an instance where her neighbor's dog suddenly began loudly barking, making Risu excessively nervous.
- Despite being scared of dogs, she mentioned herself to be a big fan of Korone and has mentioned wanting to do collaborations with her.
- Risu has an extremely high-pitched laugh that has been described by the fans to be comparable with Korone.
- She has a bad sense of direction, shown in her first DOOM stream.
