|"Moon Moon~ Moonafic Dayo!"
On some rare occasion, Moona’s stream might be visited by Moona’s “another personality,”Hoshinova. That has deeper big sister-like voices and sadistic tendesion. Pay attention to her streams to meet Hoshinova![sic]
A university student who is also a model and idol.
She became a VTuber as she was attracted by the virtual world.
She seems to be calm and cool-headed, but scary things are not her cup of tea.
Moona is a shy girl, which is the opposite of her image of a flat faced college girl despite the fact she still speaks in an upbeat tone and a rather unique Indonesia accent. Like Tsunomaki Watame, she loves to bob and weave her head and body around. She worked as a fashion model before showing an interest in joining hololive. She loves to shitpost on Twitter while trying to connect with her fans.
Her Twitter account was created on March 2020, while her first tweet was made on 7 April, her YouTube channel was created on 3 March and her debut stream was on 11 April.
On 4 June, she premiered her first cover Again by Beverly.
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 based on traditional Indonesian clothes, and using a ponytail.
On 6 January, she reached 400,000 YouTube subscribers, the 1st Indonesian hololive member to do so.
On 16 February, she released her original song "Ai no Chiisana Uta", while reaching 500,000 YouTube subscribers, making her the first hololive Indonesian member to reach this milestone and the 33rd overall hololive member.
On 15 April, she and the other holoID gen one members revealed that there are plans for them to get their 3D models at some point in 2021. On the same day, she reached 600,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 6 June, she reached 700,000 YouTube subscribers during a stream.
On 8 August, Moona reached 800,000 YouTube subscribers during a free talk stream discussing PekoMoon's cover of Turing Love.
On August 15, during their AREA 15 segment, Iofi announced that hololive ID 1st Gen member would receive their third 2D costumes soon.

- "Whatever happens in your life, please stay alive. I believe you can do it. Don't ever give up."
- Moona's last name of "Hoshinova" reflects her overall celestial theme. "Hoshi" (ホシ) is Japanese for "star", while nova, comes from the latin "novus" which means new, nova is also the English word for a star undergoing a massive, transient increase in brightness.

- On her debut, she used mobile data to support her stream which caused an unstable connectivity. Amidst the lag, many viewers kept supporting and still enjoyed the stream. Unfortunately, her stream ended abruptly. A few days later she made an amusing apology video while stating some rules along the line. Moona's connectivity problems during her debut stream led some fans to jokingly label her "Watame 2.0" (referencing the significant amount of connectivity issues Watame dealt with in her first month or so of steaming with hololive).
