Fuwa's debut stream.

Profile

A host who can't drink alcohol, who started live-streaming to make friends with similar interests to him.[1]

Personality

Suiting for that of a host, Fuwa has a friendly and approachable personality. He enjoys singing and even kickstarted his debut livestream with a surreal cover of CLUB PRINCE's "Love Dokkyun" [2]

The amusing cover has set the tone for the rest of his livestreams, where he is often caught saying random, nonsensical things, making noises to himself, and making equally nonsensical thumbnails for his videos - because of this his fans often say he is brain dead.

He will often stream for extended periods of time, sometimes for ten hours or more.

History

Background

Fuwa made his YouTube debut on 30 November.

2020

On 29 November, Fuwa revealed his first alternate costume.[3]

2021

On 28 May, Fuwa's 3D model unveiling stream was announced.[4] The stream was held on 4 June.[5]

From 2 until 31 August, Fuwa hosted a radio exercise program on his channel as a challenge. The program was live every morning from 6.30am JST. The news got picked out by YouTube Japan. The rule was: if he overslept/late the challenge failed and the program will ended. Almost everyday different NIJISANJI livers joined him as guest(s) and on the final day of the challenge he invited all livers who had been supporting him throughout his journey of waking up and exercising every morning.

On 7 September, it was announced that Fuwa, Hoshikawa Sara, and Yashiro Kizuku were releasing time-limited perfumes on U.Health&Beauty ONLINE.[6]

On 21 October, it was announced on NIJISANJI YouTube channel that Minato, Kagami Hayato, Kenmochi Touya, and Kaida Haru were debuting as a unit under the name "ROF-MAO" (ろふまお). They have their own official YouTube channel and Twitter account.[7] They will have regular program called "ROF-MAO Juku" (ろふまお塾, ROF-MAO Cram School) on their official channel.

Trivia

  • Color: #BF69F4 [16]
  • He is friends with the utaite Mafumafu, having played Apex Legends with him multiple times. He helped encourage Mafumafu to start livestreaming with a virtual avatar and Mafu wanted to write a song for him in return.
    • As a punishment to Fuwacchi, Mafumafu did end up writing a song for him.[17] As a result, on April 18, 2021, the song called "Last Song", was released, with Fuwacchi singing and Mafumafu involved in the songwriting, composing, and mixing process of the song.
  • He has a mascot called "Fuwacchi Cruller", a half purple half pink donut that speaks in a hoarse high pitched voice.
