|"Sup? I'm Oozora Subaru!"
The manager of an MMA club and an E-sports club. A supremely spirited, cheerful, lively girl who can talk to anyone without breaking a sweat. She’s currently practicing her pro-gamer skills.
Subaru is extroverted and tomboyish in nature. She is confident, hardworking, and always optimistic, even in situations that would discourage most people. This is in part because she is likely the one holoIdol who has gone through the most trouble in her life as she was born with a hole in her heart (Ventricular Septal Defect i.e VSD, which mean the wall that separated the left and right side of the heart didn't close correctly and created a hole) that threatened to kill her by the time she was 14, got ran over by car and even had her house burned down, which was the final straw that pushed her desperately into joining hololive, going so far to pretend to be an otaku to get accepted, which was successful yet ineffective due to its fakeness.
Because of her overwhelming life experience, she usually acts like a tsukkomi (straight man), pointing out the ridiculousness of whatever other members are saying or doing, and in doing so makes her the butt of many jokes. But that doesn't mean she is incapable of smiling, as she always finds a way to smile and joke herself.
She has a silly habit of saying "shuba shuba shuba" to express excitement or contentment.
Subaru has a stereotypical tomboyish appearance, accentuated by her short hair, and her baseball fan attires, with a red with white cap turned backwards, a white and yellow-striped jersey, accompanied by a blue pea whistle, white and red shorts, a pair of thigh high socks, one white and the other red, and a pair of white tennis shoes with yellow laces. she has tied to her left hip a yellow hollow plastic megaphone (used in chants during baseball games) with a yellow piece of fabric.
Her Twitter account was opened on 10 August 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 22 August although she did not start her activities on her channel until her introduction stream which was live on 17 September.
On 30 July, she debuted her second 2D costume.
On 5 November, she announced on her Twitter account that her 2D model would be updated to the 2.0 version. Next day on 6 November, she debuted her updated model during a stream, Subaru has more expressions, her face can turn in more directions, her hair especially her longer bang has movement added, also her previously still whistle and stopwatch now move as she turns around.
On 15 December, she reached 600,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 26 January, she reached 700,000 YouTube subscribers during a Minecraft stream.
On 21 March, she reached 800,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 20 May, she reached 900,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 26 May, hololive's official Twitter account announced that Subaru would get her fourth 2D costume. Later that day Subaru debuted her new costume during a stream, according to concept illustration by her illustrator, this costume comes in two main variants, "Short Style" where Subaru retains her short hairstyle and "Long Style" where Subaru has three different variants of hairstyle two loose hairstyles and one consisting of twintails. Regardless of the variants Subaru can wear a blue beret decorated with two stars, a long sleeve white blouse decorated with a red ribbon and a bellow the chest blue plaid skirt, she can also wear a pink sweater. At the peak of her stream, she had an audience of 126.000 viewers.
On 2 July, her birthday, Subaru reached 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers, making her the 19th hololive member, as well as the 14th member of hololive JP, to reach this milestone. She is also the second member of the 2nd generation to reach it. As a part of the celebration, she announced the debut of her own original song, "Taiyou Shoujyo."
On 3 July, Subaru's first single, "Taiyou Shoujyo," was released on various digital platforms.

- On 10 October 2020, Nissin's character Curry Meshi-kun's Twitter account announced a collaboration between hololive and the Curry Meshi brand named "Curry Meshi WEEK" where she, Minato Aqua and Usada Pekora would appear as the central characters of the collaboration (with other members also appearing) forming the unit name "Spice Love." debuting an original song on hololive's YouTube channel called "Curry Meshi Is a Miracle" (カレーメシ・イン・ミラクル) and a special stream held on 11 October.
- On 13 June 2021, hololive's Japanese Twitter account announced that Subaru, Minato Aqua and Momosuzu Nene would sing the The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! ending theme, forming the unit name "NEGI☆U." The unit name is an abbreviation for "never give up," which is associated with "Kujikenai" in a part of the anime title, and the reading is "Negiyu."
- On 13 August 2021, hololive's Twitter account announced that 12 members including Subaru (representing the Chiba Lotte Marines) would participate in a collaboration with the six professional Japanese baseball teams from the Pacific League, each team represented by two hololive members. The collaboration include promotional merchandise that could be brought, including hats, posters, keychains, among others, also a promotional match between ORIX Buffaloes vs SoftHawk HAWKS scheduled for 3 October 2021 at the Kyocera Dome Osaka stadium called "hololive day."
- "SubaMoon," along with Moona Hoshinova.
- "holobirds," along with Takanashi Kiara (phoenix), Pavolia Reine (peacock), Nanashi Mumei (owl), and Takane Lui (hawk).
- Her fanbase is officially called "Suba-tomo"「スバ友」, which mean "Subaru's friend."
- More hardcore fans are nicknamed "Ahijo"「アヒージョ」; fellow hololive member Shirogane Noel is often said to be one.
- Her kanji readings for her familial name "Oozora" literally means "Big Sky" or "Great Heavens."

- Her character designer is Shigure Ui who is also a VTuber. She originally did not make video contents herself and only appeared in other (mostly hololive) VTubers' videos before officially debuting on 18 May 2019.
- One of her most infamous in-jokes is her impersonations of Donald Duck during her ASMR streams stream. The joke was even taken further away during her collaboration live-stream with Roboco on 31 January 2019. The stream was intended to be the debut of her 3D model, but instead Subaru appeared as a 3D render of a little white duck wearing her signature baseball cap
- Subaru is responsible for giving the nickname "YAGOO" to Motoaki Tanigo (the CEO of COVER Corporation) as a result of accidentally misreading his name.
- Subaru is quite open to her viewers about unfortunate events that happened to her in the past, one of the examples is on Subaru's collaboration stream with Ookami Mio, Subaru stated that one of her reasons for joining hololive is because her house burned down and she needed money for a new place to live, she also used to take multiple part time jobs before becoming a full time virtual youtuber.
- She is likely the worst in hololive at horror games, screaming at even the tiniest things.
- In her early days Subaru invited Maimoto Keisuke from Nijisanji to do a collaboration stream, which was later revealed to be the turning point for Maimoto who almost quit his VTuber career and sparked his joy to keep striving as a VTuber, and also firmly set up the friendly rivalry between hololive and Nijisanji, with talents from both companies beginning to collaborate more often.
- Like Usada Pekora and Minato Aqua, Subaru established her own construction company in the Minecraft hololive JP server named Oozora Kensetsu, her notable building is Shubangelion, a towering muscular duck building wearing Subaru's famous hat holding Sakura Miko's pixelated head on its right hand and Usada Pekora's pixelated head on its left. However, Subaru stated that Oozora Kensetsu is no longer a company, it's more like a group where anyone can join and leave anytime.
- Subaru came up with an original wrestling move (though she thought it already existed) called the "Oozora Subaru-style neck & back breaker" in holo Grafiti, also known as "Oozora Subaru-style Sheepcide" due to her using it on Tsunomaki Watame. The move has since been adopted a real pro wrestler, Great-Oh-Khan.
- She's known to be very fond of western movies, particularly action-adventure movies as seen from her referencing them a lot during her streams and even doing short movie reviews for them. Some movies she's mentioned being a big fan of is the Mission: Impossible series and the Avengers movies.
