Natsuiro Matsuri (夏色まつり) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its first generation of VTubers alongside Yozora Mel, Aki Rosenthal, Shirakami Fubuki, and Akai Haato.
Matsuri is an energetic, expressive, and chaotic individual who seems to enjoy doing outrageous (and usually lewd) things simply because she can. Some examples include pressuring Minato Aqua into sleeping next to her in a Minecraft stream, posting a suggestive video on Shirakami Fubuki's Twitter of her moaning Fubuki's name, screaming at Hoshikawa Sara to let her drink her pee, and groping other members off-camera (including Hoshimachi Suisei, Shirogane Noel, and Murasaki Shion, among others).
However, underneath her naughty and tomboyish exterior, Matsuri is actually a sensitive, emotionally intelligent young girl who can speak frankly and maturely about a variety of topics. She will sometimes host audio only streams right before she goes to sleep or while in the bath and simply talk to her viewers about her life and her inner thoughts.
Her Twitter account opened on 16 May 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 25 May although she did not start her activities on YouTube until her first stream on 2 June.
On 1 November, she debuted her second 2D costume.
On 1 April, she announced that she would get her 3D model in the middle of April.
On 6 August, Matsuri showcased her 3D model swimsuit.
On 23 January, her YouTube channel became demonetized. A few minutes later, she said on her Twitter account that it was due to one of the songs she sung, claiming it was a mistake on Youtube's side, so she would reapply for monetization the next month.
On 24 January along with the other hololive girls up to the third generation, she debuted her 3D idol outfit at hololive's 1st fest Nonstop Story.
On 1 March, she teased on Twitter a new 2D model for her next stream. On 2 March, she revealed this 2D model, unlike her normal model, in this one Matsuri is a 6 year old girl and acts for the most part like one.
On 28 July, she announced on her Twitter account that her original 2D model would be get an update. She debuted her updated model during a stream later the same day, featuring more facial expressions, her hair including her ponytail and ahoge has improved movement and the previously still ribbon on her blouse now has movement, along with general movement improvements in line with the model capabilities of hololive members from the GAMERS unit onwards.
