Moona Hoshinova (ムーナ・ホシノヴァ) is a female Indonesian Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its Indonesian (ID) branch first generation of VTubers alongside Airani Iofifteen and Ayunda Risu.
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.
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.
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.

- Her fanbase is called "Moonafic". "Munafik" means "hypocrite" in Indonesian; according to Moona herself, this was intentional.
- "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.
- In addition to Indonesian, Moona can speak English and a little Japanese.

- Moona is famous for having great construction abilities and is often praised by fans and fellow hololive members, this is one of the reasons that got her recruited by Usada Pekora for Usada Constructions.
- Moona had PC problems a few days before her debut which forced her to use a laptop instead.
- 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).
- At one point, she streamed from her car when she was forced to self-quarantine.
- She is a big SpongeBob SquarePants enthusiast to the point where she sang Ripped Pants in her debut.
