  • Izuru has said that he didn't intend to name his fanbase due to his fear of them doing something illegal and linking his name on the news. This has led to some fans calling themselves the "Nothing gang".[37]

    • "RIZnote" along with Rikka.
    • "Chibistars" (ちびすたーず) (officially translated as "Li'l Stars[38]) along with Kagami Kira and Astel Leda.

    • "Senkou Gumi" (先行組) along with Hanasaki Miyabi and Kagami Kira.[40]
    • "ReTIcle" along with Rikka and Kishido Temma.


  • Izuru is the third debuted member of Holostars and is part of it's early debut generation whom consists of Hanasaki Miyabi and Kagami Kira.
    • Izuru cherishes and spoils Miyabi a lot per Miyabi revealing it through multiple streams that behind the scenes Izuru is very kind and caring towards him.
    • Izuru is also very close with Kira considering the amount of same interests and streams they have done together. In a few public streams, he mentioned that despite doing all they could for Kira and wanting him to stay, in the end, it was Kira's own decision to graduate from Holostars.
  • Izuru has said in a livestream that he was born on the Tsushima island and was rather surprised that Ghost of Tsushima made a game about it.
  • It has been revealed through multiple streams that he is a university student.
  • Izuru is one of the members of Holostars who understands simple English.
    • From being a studious student, his English has improved since. Such as can be seen in a tweet he sent to Calli regarding the cover song she did with Gura.[41]
  • As revealed in the second HoloUters stream, Izuru can not only play guitar, but also piano.[42]
  • Izuru has mentioned that his favourite Studio Ghibli movie is Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and his second favourite being Princess Mononoke.[43]
  • Izuru reached Master rank in Apex on the 22nd of March 2021, while accompanied by Astel Leda and Utai Meika. This rank was only achieved by 0,12% of players in season 8.
  • Izuru lives in the countryside and enjoys walking along the beach.
  • Through his twitter, Izuru has showed his cooking skills by posting pictures of his self cooked meals.
    • Sometimes, he'll forage for wild vegetables as he has tweeted saying how he found a certain vegetable and that it would be part of today's meals.
    • He likes fishing and would tweet sometimes when he's going fishing or has gone fishing whether he had any catches or not. He has also stated that he would cook his fishes on a stick sitting on the ground by a firepit. Of course, when he finishes, he cleans up properly before heading home.
  • Izuru is an older brother and has two younger brothers.
  • Izuru has had to addressed chat etiquettes in his streams multiple times due to conflicts among viewers which has led him to stating he'll no longer put his chat on screen during live streams unless he really wants to for certain occasions. Since then, under the video description he has listed some rules and as well as a link to his free chat (the following listed should NOT be done in Izuru's chat);
    • No Emoji/Oshi Mark Spam: He prefers genuine feedback and rather have compliments in text but the clapping emoji is allowed after a song is finished.
    • Sniffles: He has pointed out that comments asking about his sniffling and asking about his health is not needed. It's just a part of him and how he sounds.
    • Babying: He's an adult who doesn't need his viewers to be his parents or manager.
    • Deviating from the stream: This has occurred too often where cases of fights happen among his viewers. The following includes includes; viewers chatting amongst each other while ignoring Izuru who sincerely enjoys interacting with his chat, not reading the room when commenting especially when it's something serious or singing an emotional song, spamming off topic comments, personal comments such as; "I don't know Japanese/I can't understand you but I'll stay anyway." or "I have to leave now due to/school/need to finish homework/bye chat/etc." and dropping names of other VTubers when he didn't say them in the first place. These type of actions puts the focus of the stream away from him which leads to stream disruption.
    • Overseas Comments: There seems to be a misconception regarding overseas comments. They are allowed in his live streams as long as they are on topic and do not make demands of him such as bothering him to speak English. However, preferably English, by typing in simple English, it allows Izuru to have a possibility to read it, see it and respond to it. Furthermore, he's very intellectual and depending on the languages he knows of, he can pick up what is being said in his chat.
    • Live Translations are Prohibited in Live Streams: During live streams he has asks that translations be put into his "Free Chat" so that it doesn't drown out the live stream chat since he wants to see viewers' comments so he can interact with easier. Therefore, those who want to see the translations may go to the Free Chat.
