Bora's introduction.

Profile

Nun Bora is a second-year high school student who is a virtual soldier trainee. She is quite timid and is a loner so she debuted to meet new people and make new friends.[1]

Personality

Bora has a very positive attitude and is always cheerful whenever she streams. While she is kind and considerate, Bora has a childish and mischievous side to her where she often pulls pranks and jokes on her collab partner during a stream. She is also the type to clearly voice her thoughts and opinions, she doesn't shy away whenever her live chat is having excessive conversations or when the live chat is being disrespectful.

History

Background

Nun Bora created her YouTube Channel on 30 July 2020, and made her Debut on 7 August 2020 along with the rest of NIJISANJI KR's third wave.

2021

On 14 February, Bora revealed her first new outfit since her debut in an outfit reveal stream. The stream was first announced on 6 February 2021 in twitter with the caption: "I hope this become the best valentines gift ever".[2]

On 13 June, Bora announced that she would be taking a break to sort out various issues. She resumed streaming on 30 July, and also showcased her model's 2.0 update at this time.[3]

Retirement

On 15 November, Bora announced on her Twitter that she would be graduating from NIJISANJI KR by the end of November to concentrate on her studies and other commitments.[4]

On 30 November, Bora graduated from her activities as a VTuber with a farewell live stream. She decided not to have guests coming to her final stream because she wanted to spend her final moments with her fans only.

Prior to her farewell stream, she posted a hand-written letter for her channel members but later decided to publish it on her Twitter. She wrote the letter both in Korean and Japanese, and felt sorry for not being able to write it up in English too; however, the English translation for her letter by fan is available on Bora's tweet reply.[5]

During her farewell stream, she looked back on her VTuber journey from the debut with her debut-mates; her first sudden Apex Legends collab with Kanae that brought her name up to Japanese viewers; the tournaments and custom games she was part of like 2434 Apex Legends Kill Relay, VTuber Most Cooperatitive Tournament, ShibuHAL Custom, and Crazy Raccoon Cup; as well as recalled the memories with the teams she was part of for those tournaments. Being a well-known Apex Legends player within Apex Legends streamer community, many Apex Legends streamers and pro-players also bid her farewell on live chat during her farewell stream and on Twitter.

The graduation stream lasted for 4 hours and she spent the last 3 hours reading Superchats while alternating her Live2D models. Her YouTube channel hit 260,000 subscribers during the stream. She concluded her stream with the farewell word 「幸あれぃー!」 "sachi are" (幸あれ, good luck! all the best).[6]

Bora's YouTube channel membership ended on 30 November; and by 1 December, all her stream archives privated except for her song covers.[7] Her farewell stream archive would only be available for a week after her graduation.

Trivia

  • Color: #A9CEEC [1]
  • Bora's full name, "눈보라" means blizzard in Korean, while her first name, "보라" means violet, hence her violet heart and snow emoji. Her name is written as "嫩甫羅" in chinese character, but it does not have any meaning, and the family name "Nun(눈; 嫩)" does not really exist in Korea.
  • Bora's native language is Korean, but she is also very confident in her Japanese and would use these two languages interchangeably. She usually uses Japanese when she is collabing with another NIJISANJI Liver from the JP Branch.
  • As of November 2020, Bora is the only liver in the whole NIJISANJI Project to have a wrath badge on all Legends in APEX Legends. This achievement shows that Bora is one of the most skilled Apex players in NIJISANJI. Because she is very skilled in Apex, she has collabed with other livers and even professional gamers that also play Apex like Yuuki Chihiro, Ratna Petit, Kanae, Nishizono Chigusa, KNR Admin, CR Fransisco, Kuzuha, and many more.
  • Just like Bora's seniors, Bora draws a lot and often draws other members of NIJISANJI KR.
  • Bora also plays the recorder and she is quite confident in her playing skills. She celebrated Chae Ara's birthday by playing a piece on the recorder.
  • On her graduation stream, she recounted her VTuber journey and spent the last 3 hours reading Superchats. And her farewell word was 「幸あれぃー!」 "sachi are" (幸あれ, good luck! all the best).[17]
