Nijisanji (にじさんじ) is a group of mostly 2D-only Virtual YouTubers who are also known as "Virtual Livers" (バーチャルライバー Bācharu Raibā) when posting on sites outside of YouTube, such as NicoNico Douga and Bilibili. The term Liver, coined by mixing Japanese and English, is a heteronym for calling Nijisanji's streamers.[1]

Managed by ANYCOLOR Inc. (formerly known as Ichikara Inc. until May 16, 2021), the group started in Japan in early 2018 and has since expanded to other countries as an international project.[2] As of July 2021, there are 190 members in Nijisanji for all of its branches: 107 active Japanese Nijisanji members, 19 active NIJISANJI ID members, 16 active NIJISANJI KR members, 6 active NIJISANJI EN members and 42 active VirtuaReal members.[3] There are also 5 VirtuaReal Star members and 22 VirtuaReal Link members who are independent VTubers, not considered part of Nijisanji per se and are only in a network partner system.

Kuzuha has the highest number of subscribers in Nijisanji with Kanae, Tsukino Mito, Honma Himawari and Sasaki Saku following in order in the top 5.

As of 2021, the group has 30 million subscribers on YouTube for all of the 148 members (JP/ID/KR/EN) who have it as their main platform. VirtuaReal members aren't included as they have bilibili as its main platform.

For the list of original songs released by Nijisanji members and musical units, refer to the following Wiki page: List of Nijisanji Songs.

Technology

Nijisanji Livers usually stream with iPhoneX facial motion capture technology, Live2D models, and the Nijisanji app (commercially unavailable). This method is technically simpler and much less expensive than full-body 3D motion tracking equipment but the resulting motion is mostly limited to facial features, rotation of the head, and limited movement of the upper body. These models suffered from many stuttering and accuracy issues in the early days of Nijisanji but less of these issues are seen today as their technology has improved.

After debuting, Livers are able to receive 2.0 and 3.0 brushups that allow them to expand their range of movement and make more facial expressions. 2.0 and 3.0 brushups are announced through Twitter and are distributed in batches at random times. Those with 3D models are also eligible to receive 3D brushups, which are also announced through Twitter. Updates of any kind are tagged with #にじあぷで on Twitter.

As of May 2021, 95 Livers from Nijisanji's main branch have received 2.0 brushups and 3 have received 3.0 brushups. 3 Livers from Nijisanji ID have received 2.0 brushups and are the only Livers from foreign branches to have received brushups.

In addition to Live2D and conventional full-body 3D motion capture, Nijisanji also supports "Niji 3D" (にじ3D), which allows Livers to stream using their 3D models without a studio. The range of motion for Niji 3D is limited to the upper body and hand tracking.

As of May 2021, 62 Livers from Nijisanji's main branch have received 3D models (including Livers who have used their models in events but haven't had their YouTube debut yet) and 4 have received 3D brushups. 8 Livers from VirtuaReal have received 3D models as well and are the only foreign branch to have received 3D models (not including members from VirtuaReal Link or Star).

History

2018

On 17 July, Nijisanji announced Chinese and Taiwanese Vtubers as an expansion into those markets. However, they are no longer active within Nijisanji and on April 2019, were transferred to another virtual group called "VEgo" which only lasted for a month before retiring from Youtube entirely.[4]

2019

In April 2019, a new branch of the Nijisanji Project in China called "VirtuaReal" officially began their activities.

On 10 May, they announced the commencement of their Nijisanji NetWORK (にじさんじネットワーク Nijisanji NETTOWAAKU) partnership program which is aimed towards giving support to other virtual talents. The first VTubers to participate in the program were Tenkai Tukasa and Fairys Chan.[5] It was first hinted at on 8 May.[6] Since 31 December 2019, it is no longer operational.[7]

On 19 July, Nijisanji's parent company Ichikara Inc. announced a new branch of the Nijisanji Project in Indonesia called "NIJISANJI ID." Auditions for four initial virtual YouTuber positions were open from 19 July until 4 August[8], and the selected candidates officially began their activities in September 2019.

On 18 November, Ichikara Inc. announced a new branch of the Nijisanji Project in India called "NIJISANJI IN." Auditions for three initial virtual YouTuber positions were open from 18 November until 2 December[9], and the selected candidates officially began their activities in January 2020.

On 17 December, Ichikara Inc. announced a new branch of the Nijisanji Project in South Korea called "NIJISANJI KR." Auditions for five virtual YouTuber positions were open from 20 December until 6 January 2020[10], and the selected candidates officially began their activities in late January 2020.

2020

A 6-show national music concert tour called "Nijisanji JAPAN TOUR 2020 Shout in the Rainbow!" took place between 9 February and 5 April. A total of 29 Nijisanji members performed across 5 Zepp venues (Sapporo, Fukuoka, Namba, Nagoya, and DiverCity Tokyo). Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zepp DiverCity Tokyo show was entirely cancelled and the second Zepp Namba show was exclusively streamed online.[11]

On 22 June, NIJISANJI IN rebranded and changed the name of their branch to "NIJISANJI EN."[12] Additionally, Nijisanji launched their official English YouTube channel on this day too.[13]

On 27 November, it was announced that Aadya, Noor, and Vihaan would continue streaming as "NIJISANJI IN" once again.[14]

On 30 November, Ichikara Inc. announced that they were launching the first wave auditions for English speaking countries. The auditions were open until 15 December.[15]

On December 25, Ichikara Inc. announced that the previously unofficial Nijisanji subreddit, r/Nijisanji, would become officially run by Ichikara Inc.[16] Many of Nijisanji's Livers joined as moderators for the subreddit as well.

2021

On 28 February, it was announced at the Nijisanji annversary fesitval that 3.0 brushups would be implemented, which allow for Live2D models to have more movement and facial expressions. JK Gumi (Tsukino Mito, Higuchi Kaede, Shizuka Rin) will be the first to receive 3.0 brushups in April 2021. Nijisanji ID's first wave, Hana Macchia, ZEA Cornelia, and Taka Radjiman received 2.0 brushups during the festival as well, making them the first members of any foreign branch to receive 2.0 brush ups.

In 3 March, Kuzuha became the most subscribed Nijisanji liver, surpassing Tsukino Mito who was the most subscribed VTuber in the agency since Nijisanji was established in early 2018.

On 13 April, it was announced on Twitter that Nijisanji IN would be temporarily suspended at 30 April 2021, 23:59 JST, as well as the coming graduation of the branch's livers, Aadya, Noor, and Vihaan.[17]

On 30 April, all members of NIJISANJI IN graduated and the branch was suspended.

On 12 May, Nijisanji EN's first wave, Lazulight was revealed. Their debuts happened on 16 May (according to JST) and were accompanied by a separate debut program hosted by Nijisanji ID livers Hana Macchia and Bonnivier Pranaja.[18]

On 12 May, the English version of Nijisanji's Official website was released.[19]

On 13 May, it was announced that an official Nijisanji TikTok account had been started.[20]

In 18 June, Anycolor announced new auditions for Nijisanji EN. Unlike the first audition, this audition has a separation between male and female vtubers, with the male ending the audition in August and the female one in July.[21]

In July 14, Anycolor announced Nijisanji EN's second wave called Obsydia. This second wave was part of the first audition done by the company, instead of the second audition opened. The wave shares themes and ideas with Lazulight, being a "darker" version of the group.[22]

In July 19, it was announced that a new wave was coming for the japanese branch with 5 new members after almost one year without any debuts in the branch. All of them would debut in the same day on July 22.

Trivia

  • Nijisanji can be represented as the number 2434, so this is sometimes seen in their material. During live-streams, fans sometimes donate 2434 yen (~$21 USD).
  • NIjisanji is often represented using the rainbow emoji (niji) and 3 o'clock emoji (sanji). Livers use this to represent their affiliation with Nijisanji while fans use it to show that they are fans of Nijisanji.
  • ANYCOLOR Inc. is run by Tazumi Riku, the CEO of the company. He has made appearances on the Nijisanji YouTube channel and is even the inspiration behind some of the membership emojis. He has his own Twitter and YouTube channel.
  • Nijisanji is run by Tazumi Riku, the CEO of ANYCOLOR Inc., after Iwanaga Taiki stepped down due to his cancer treatment.
    • Nijisanji used to be run the by Iwanaga Taiki, the former COO of ANYCOLOR Inc. He switched to running SLEE, an idol group that used to be under ANYCOLOR, after he started undergoing treatment for cancer. He has now gone into remission and has left ANYCOLOR to become the president of Yokaze Inc, where he will continue to run SLEE. His Twitter is here. He sometimes does live-streams as a female-looking VTuber named Iwanaga-chan whose Twitter is here.
  • Nijisanji's app has a mascot called Yugamin. Livers can stream as Yugamin instead of their usual forms as Yugamin has a Live2D model. Yugamin was designed by ほーじろ, who also designed Shibuya Hajime, Kenmochi Toya, Fushimi Gaku, Sister Cleaire, Amemori Sayo, Todoroki Kyoko, and Yumeoi Kakeru.
  • Whenever someone who isn't a Liver appears in a 3D stream, their avatar is that of a kuroko (黒衣, black-clad), a stagehand in traditional Japanese theater wearing black clothes that cover the entire body. The kuroko are usually ANYCOLOR staff.
