Flare's introduction.

"Noon-nui! This is hololive 3rd Gen's Shiranui Flare!"

A half-elf born to a human and elf. Usually enjoys life as she pleases. Wants to be a source of comfort so rely on her whenever you're in trouble. She may be passionate and overly sentimental, but praising her will bring her joy, even if also a little embarrassment! "Hehehe! Let's get along!"

The fairy that follows her everywhere is named "Kintsuba."[3]
"Noon-nui! This is Shiranui Flare!"

A half-elf who seems sloppy and undependable, however when it is time, she becomes an extremely reliable big sis.

She is basically kind of drained. Her weakness is her emotions and she cries or gets embarrassed quite easily (Just praise her!).

The fairy-like creature that looks like a panda is named “Kintsuba”.[4]


Flare is a kind and extremely humble individual, almost to a fault. Her kindness is vouched for most often by the other hololive Fantasy members, which has resulted in her so-called 'harem,' with Pekora being an exception. However, out of the four members in hololive Fantasy, it remains to be Noel who is the most blatant in her affection.

Other hololive members, like Sora, have expressed their admiration for Flare because of her versatile voice and mature aura. However, although Flare is known to be cool and aloof at first glance, she is actually quite childish and girly, which comes out the most in her horror streams and when she is drunk.

She has also expressed her want to be more confident in herself in the hololive Fantasy 1st Anniversary stream.



Flare was one of the five hololive VTubers first announced on 13 June 2019 as part of the third generation. On 1 August, through a press release, her name, along with social media accounts, was officially announced alongside Shirogane Noel and Houshou Marine,[5] also making her first tweet on the same day. Her Twitter account was opened on 25 July 2019 while her YouTube channel was created on 26 July. She debuted with her introduction stream on 7 August.[6]


On 1 January she published on her Twitter account, that she would get her second 2D costume, a kimono in celebration of the new year, this costume was later revealed that day during a stream.[7][8]

On 19 January hololive's Twitter account published a tweet mentioning that Houshou Marine, Hoshimachi Suisei and Shiranui Flare would participate in a stream previous to hololive's 1st fest Nonstop Story.[9][10] The next day, in the same stream, it was revealed that the three of them would get their 3D model debut in said event, but that they would have a YouTube debut later. In Flare's case, her stream was scheduled for March.[11]

On 24 January, she appeared in her 3D model for the first time at hololive's 1st fes. Nonstop Story with both her standard and idol outfits.[12][13]

On 25 March, during a karaoke stream, she announced that her 3D model would debut on YouTube on 29 March. This was later reconfirmed in her Twitter account.[14][15]

On 28 March, hololive's Twitter account informed that Flare's 3D debut on YouTube would be postponed until further notice due to goverment recommendations.[16][17] (This was due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases in Japan urging people to stay in doors). Flare later stated that she was fine.[18][19]

On 10 June, she teased an important announcement for her next stream,[20] later that day she revealed the new date for her 3D model debut on YouTube, being programed for 13 June.[21][22]

On 13 June, she debuted her 3D model during a stream.[23]

On 10 November, hololive's official Twitter account announced that she and Hoshimachi Suisei would get new 2D costumes.[24]

On 7 February, Flare reached 500,000 YouTube subscribers during a singing endurance stream, making her the 31st hololive member to reach this milestone and the last of her generation.[26]

On 25 April, Flare reached 600,000 YouTube subscribers during a singing endurance stream.[27]
