Hello Everynyan!! ~ Meet Nyatasha Nyanners!

Nyanners's introduction.

Personality

Nyanners is a gentle, sensitive, and often energetic catgirl with a good sense of humor. However, her claims of being "seiso" or pure are offset by a tendency to use toilet jokes and reference adult, and often vastly obscure, topics. This contrast between pure and crude is considered by fans to be a defining aspect of Nyanners' appeal.

She has an intense laugh, which she does very often, including at her own jokes. Her sense of humor is often complex and layered, but at other times it is simple but extremely abstract, such as laughing uncontrollably while playing half-life scientist screaming sounds at 50% speed. Some of these bits she does can be very involved and dragged out, at one time doing bad stand up comedy for an hour straight. However, her creativity, active mind, and commitment to the joke can make the entire length enjoyable.

She has ADHD and is very easily distracted or sidetracked. She may end a stream over an hour after she said she was already ending, discuss a subject for several minutes while walking in a circle in a video game, or change a topic rapidly and successively, often meaning her streams are never boring.

She is easily flustered by loud noises, large donations, and sometimes lewd things. She is strongly moved by nostalgic video games such as Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy X. Her love of FFX is legendary; she describes the character Yuna as a major influence, and has a crush on a particular Final Fantasy character.

Nyanners has considerable knowledge of both Japanese pop culture and obscure English-language internet culture, and she is skilled at singing in Japanese and other languages, including Latin (Lilium), Russian (елочка заблести огнями) and constructed or fictional languages (Song of the Ancients). While she is quite good at understanding Japanese, she will struggle to speak it, especially if nervous. She has a case of chuunibyou, as exemplified by her obsession with Cold Steel heavy-duty sword canes and tendency to create elaborate lore.

Appearance

Nyanners is a catgirl with fluffy pink hair. It has an ahoge on top, and her cat ears have soft fur inside them. Her hair hides a second set of human ears. She has a singular fang on her left side, this is her only tooth. She has purple eyes (usually) because it is Nyanners' favorite color.

Her default costume is a pale blue hoodie, which hangs off her shoulders because, although it is comfy, it is also too warm. She wears a black and white top underneath which says にゃん〜, the Japanese spelling of "nyan~". Her hair and clothes are decorated with cat motifs. She often changes her appearance to match the season.

She occasionally receives minor model changes. On 3 November 2020, Nyanners' default outfit gained a variant with a new hair clip depicting a cat ghost wearing an eyepatch. It replaces her original hair clip of a simple cat face. The cat ghost represents Nyanners' true form as an otherworldly eldritch spirit for whom Nyatasha Nyanners is just the latest in series of haunted vessels; while the eyepatch represents Yakuza character Goro Majima.[1] However, occasionally used the old version in streams. She also received oversized breasts for a one-off April Fools stream, and a lighter pink hair color when her previous form apparently died on 5 May 2021.

An alternate costume, debuted on 1 October 2020, reveals a seasonal purple and black costume with bat motifs and a single side-ponytail. It depicts her for the first time with legs, having previously appeared with a spiderlike lower body, as well as proving (though not to an insistent chat) that she is not flat-chested.[2]

On 24 November 2020, she revealed a new winter outfit. It features and elaborate pale blue winter coat, frilled and lined with white fur, and decorated with cat motifs and shiny gold buttons. She also has a warm Russian-style ushanka hat, decorated with a ribbon pin featuring her cat familiar Goro. The update to the model also came with Live2D rigging improvements for both the new outfit and previous outfit, which made her body move more and act more expressively.

She often uses a 3D model with three outfits while streaming VRChat, though this model is fanmade and not official. She's been more cautious using the model after her friends discovered off-camera on-stream that the model features fully modeled genitalia underneath the clothing, which is especially visible on the Halloween model.

On 12 March, Nyanners received a new short hairstyle which ends above her shoulders. Canonically, she sliced off her hair using her sword cane and let it drift into the wind. She intends to still use her long hairstyle sometimes. The update came with Live2D improvements, mainly physics movements to various parts of her clothes.[3]

On 6 April 2021, to celebrate reaching 400k earlier in the week, she revealed a new model. She wears a light indigo, frilly strapless dress with an opening in the front of the skirt and from her chest to her navel, the top sharing the appearance of a sleeved tube top. Attached behind are four very large black ribbons, and in front, four smaller black ribbons as well as a central blue ribbon featuring Goro. Underneath she wears compression shorts and a sports top with a heart-shaped cleavage window and a large fluffy collar, as well as long black gloves and thigh high boots which could be easily confused for socks.

Her appearance at Kizuna Ai's virtual tour on 24 April 2021 featured a new outfit on a completely new official 3D model, featuring her original long hair, a different, cropped blue hoodie, a black a-line skirt with two front pockets, and blue winter boots over white suspended thigh-high socks. There are pink buckles on the belt and pockets of her skirt, and on her shoes, and pick straps on her elbows. It is unclear if she will use it in future streams.

History

Background

Nyanners' original character (2014)

The name Nyanners originated as a friendly diminutive form for nyannyanoxo, an ironic anime fan name chosen when she joined a 4chan /a/ raid on the Chatango room for the Naruto Fanon Wikia, after finding the exceptionally long entry for Seireitou Hyūga and his lengthy list of relationships. She ended up actually taking part the community and created a character of her own, who was a catgirl-cactus hybrid. The Naruto community gave Nyanners the confidence to produce her own content on YouTube.[4]

Nyanners first created her pink-haired catgirl character on 13 May 2012. In June of that year, Nyanners received two pieces of fanart depicting her as this character: one used in Ken Ashcorp's A Song for Nyanners' Birthday, and another by Pikkurni, later used in Tsukema Tsukeru cover to illustrate Nyan Nyanners, an Utauloid voice synthesis trained on Nyanners' singing voice.

Nyanners would go on to represent herself with depictions of this character in other videos, including numerous song covers from 2014 onward. She created a Twitch channel on 10 Feburary 2015, and after becoming a Twitch partner in October 2016, this character appeared in her Twitch emotes.

2020

On 17 July, after several years of streaming on Twitch using various Facerig avatars due to shyness, Nyanners revealed her custom virtual avatar.[5] On 21 July she posted her character bio, revealing the official name Nyatasha Nyanners.[6] The name was selected by a series of polls on Nyanners' Discord. Rejected names included Nyanzu Nyanneru, Nyanasu Nyanners, and Nyatasha Kotova Neru III.

Nyanners announced reaching 100,000 Twitch followers on 29 July 2020,[7] and 200,000 followers on 10 Oct 2020.[8]

On 20 October, following reports of copyright takedowns on Twitch VODs, Nyanners established the Nyanners VODs YouTube channel to archive past streams. On 23 October, she announced that she would delete all VODs hosted at Twitch to avoid the risk of copyright strikes, but her community was able to save a substantial backup.[9] The following day, Nyanners announced a two-week hiatus for unrelated personal reasons. On 9 November she announced her return scheduled for Nov 11, declaring "prepare your wives".[10]

On 24 November, she made a redebut revealing her new winter outfit, drawn by Nia and rigged by Iron Vertex. Nyanners also announced her membership in VTuber group VShojo, whose members include Projekt Melody, Ironmouse, Silvervale, Zentreya, Froot, Hime Hajime, and Nyatasha Nyanners.[11] She reached 250,000 followers during this stream.

2021

On 1 January, Nyanners posted a YouTube video where she was executed for failing to reach 1 million subscribers by the end of 2020. In her Twitch stream later that day, she was replaced by a new clone, identified by having golden eyes rather than purple and a lack of familiarity with wife-stealing. She gained 7,000 new subscribers that day and subsequently reached 1 million subscribers on 2 January.

On 8 January, Nyanners posted What really happened on that fateful day..., revealing that she survived by deflecting the bullet with her Cold Steel sword cane, only to trip over a rock, hit her head on another rock and die in the snow. On 16 January she held a 1 million subscriber celebration YouTube stream attended by over peak 12,000 viewers, in which the original Nyatasha Nyanners was revealed to have survived by drinking her own pee.

On 24 March, Nyanners was announced as a guest in Kizuna AI's first virtual U.S. tour.[12]

She reached 400,000 Twitch followers on 31 March.

On 13 April, VShojo members Ironmouse, Froot, Silvervale, Veibae and Nyanners played with prominent japanese VTubers Kizuna Ai, Higuchi Kaede and Dennou Shojo Siro in a collab called #VAmongEarth.[13]

On 24 April, she released her first original song as a VTuber, Foolish Heart, and performed it the same day in 3D at Kizuna AI's U.S. tour, before singing together with AI.

On 5 May, her main form apparently died during a toilet accident while climbing through the sewers. A minute later, she reappeared, but with a lighter hair color, different talking mannerisms, and no memory of her death, as well an apparent increase in power and a restored desire for world domination and torture.

On her birthday, 14 June, she held a charity stream to raise money for Child's Play. She ended up raising $80,385.69, over twice her original goal, and as a part of the donation milestone announced that she would, among many others, hold a community vote for a new costume, and would finally finish and release the visual novel game that she had been working on for years.

On 16 June, she collaborated with Takanashi Kiara in the first ever hololive x VShojo collab, which was streamed on both YouTube and Twitch.[14] The event attracted a peak total of around 40,000 viewers across both sites.

Trivia

Origin and certain nature

  • Nyanners' true form is that of a terrible eldritch spirit, who was summoned to earth more than a thousand years ago. To prevent her from conquering the world, she was sealed away in the Siberian Arctic for an age. Recently, she awoke from her slumber and was rejoined by her cat spirit familiar and began wandering the arctic together.[16]
  • Nyanners' powers include the ability to shapechange and possess other forms. She adopted many vessels before taking her current form. The form of a non-threatening, wholesome pink catgirl was chosen as part of an elaborate plan to endear herself to humanity, following research into the power of strange pictographs known as "anime".[16]
    • She can transform into a seal, and often makes seal noises, taught to her by various tribes of seals she befriended in the arctic.[16] On September 30, 2020, she added the Twitch emote "nyannBLEGH", referencing her ability to blegh. She worked for a time as a lumberjack in Siberia.[17]
  • She began streaming as part of a plan to conquer the world. Unfortunately, her thirst for knowledge ran too deep, and continuous exposure to video games and anime caused her to become docile and lazy. She fears that her long period of imprisonment in the ice may also have weakened her supernatural power and caused her to become senile.[16]
  • She does not have a tail. She often attempts to conjure one, but it always shrivels and falls off.[16]
  • On her June 14th, 2021 during her birthday stream, she finally gained a tail that she was gifted by Catboymech. She managed to get around the shriveling by adopting one that was more...Plug and Play in nature...
  • Nyanners has both cat ears and human ears. One pair hears normally, but the other hears only sounds in the night from other worlds or realms of being.
  • Nyanners has several clones, some of whom are several hundreds years old. Seven appear in the video I Cloned Myself to Play Among Us....
    • She has a failed clone, named Nyanders (pictured here). Normally Nyanners eats her clones, but Nyanders tastes bad. She is connected to Nyanners telepathically, and smells of french fries. Nyanners feeds her milk from her bosom and spoons of glop, and sometimes lets her eat the spoon too.
  • To keep her hair pink and soft, she frequently washes it in a human concoction known as "pepto bismol".[16] She uses it to dye her hair when it turns grey.
  • She can see through wooden doors.
  • She is a self proclaimed "coofer".
  • She has the ability to unhinge her jaw like a snake and swallow a turkey whole. Her saliva is akin to that of a komodo dragon's in its ability to be weaponized.
  • Nyanners has made some unorthodox claims regarding her body:
    • She claims that her chest size is actually FF-cup, for Final Fantasy, but she hides it underneath a sports bra so that she can move around on stream more easily.
    • Nyanners claims to be the greatest baker in all of Europe. She also claims that her bust size is FFF, and that she has an IQ of 200.
    • She has claimed that she lacks genitalia and has no reproductive desires. This is believed to be a fabrication, however, as her tastes in women are well known.
    • She claims that she does have a butthole and does not poop, but rather magics away waste products in her digestive tract like fairy dust. There is an island somewhere in the world formed entirely from Nyanners' poop. One day, a hundreds years from now, mankind will discover Nyanners' poop island, and it will be inhabited by all kinds of alien lifeforms who came to make it their home. However, this appears to have been contradicted on 5 May 2021, when one of Nyanners' forms apparently died after she "SHITTED ON THE TOILET TO DEATH [sic]".
  • She possesses a button somewhere on her body that causes her hair to grow.
