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.
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 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.
- Her fanbase is officially called "Moonafic". "Munafik" means "hypocrite" in Bahasa; according to Moona herself, this was intentional. but it stands for "Moona Fanatic".
- 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).
- Moona's last name of "Hoshinova" reflects her overall celestial theme. "Hoshi" (スター) 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.
- She is a big SpongeBob SquarePants enthusiast to the point where she sang Ripped Pants in her debut.
- Moona has a small Moe fang, though it is barely visible.
- She has a notably large appetite; one time remarking on Twitter that she ate 12 large pieces of fried chicken in one sitting. Her Twitter also has food come up as a frequent topic in general.
