Shizuka Rin (静凛) is a Female Japanese Virtual YouTuber who debuted on 10 February 2018, a member of the Nijisanji group, and part of the "JK gumi" (JK組, high school girl group) along with Tsukino Mito and Higuchi Kaede.
Rin made her YouTube debut on February 10, 2018.
On 25 June, it was announced that Rin, alongside Todo Kohaku, would be the vocalists for the Japanese version of "Trial and Error", produced by banvox and the fourth song in Nijisanji's music project, "PALETTE", made for Nijisanji's third anniversary. The song became available on various streaming services on 16 July.
- On 12 January 2019 she took part in Higuchi Kaede's first live event Kana-Dero at Zepp Osaka Bayside, along with others.
- She refers to her fans as "fam", from the word "family".
- Sometimes cat ears appear on her head. At the Kana-Dero event, she toggled them by swiping at the top front of her head.
- Some viewers are worried for her health as there have been livestreams going on for a large portion of the day or until the early hours of the morning (~3AM Japan).
- She had deleted/made private some of her older live videos on Youtube, and seems to sometimes do this for new videos (e.g. most ASMR videos). The reason behind this is unknown; some fans have kept copies, also a 4chan poster on the board /jp/ has kept copies of most on a private mega.nz share.
- Since Rin streams constantly and at random times, and YouTube's notification system is notoriously bad, one fan created a Twitter notification system for when she streams.
- After Kizuna AI, Rin is the second Virtual YouTuber to appear on one of PewDiePie's videos after he uploaded a snippet of one of her streams, in which she sang a rendition of the Japanese version of the song Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver (a version originally commissioned for the Studio Ghibli's 1995 movie Whisper of the Heart), in which she mistakenly pronounced it as "Concrete Roads" and confesses that she doesn't know the lyrics.
