Towa's introduction.


"Sup, groupies!"

A young devil who is visiting human society to gain experience and develop her skills. But instead of studying, she became addicted to video games! After learning about a tool for communicating with humans called "streaming," she's trying it out to help with her studies.[6]
In order to become an archdemon, she joined the human society for further studies.

She should be studying but is now addicted to gaming. She realized that the method commonly known as “streaming” is also a way to communicate with humans. She is now in the “trial and error” process.[7]


Despite being a Devil, Towa is a sweet, kind-hearted, down to earth girl, which has caused many of her fans to insist that she is an Angel instead. Towa usually gets annoyed by this and insists she is a Devil and does not like Angels. She doesn't truly mean it as she likes Kanata. Her streams are usually wholesome and relaxing, though when subjected to the playful lusts of other VTubers, she becomes one of the few holoIdols to strongly become a straight man and be genuinely repulsed by their actions. She really enjoys herself while streaming and often get hyped when playing FPSs, but she might rage if she dies in said games. She also doesn't like horror games as she gets scared fairly easy.

Towa also likes singing and she is well known for her powerful vocal range.

She greets her viewers with "Ohayappi" (おはやっぴー) or "Konyappi" (こんやっぴー) and she says goodbye with "Otsuyappi" (おつやっぴー).

On 20 December, she debuted the 2.0 version of her 2D model during a stream, the most prominent change is that Towa can now remove her white jacket and Bibi her hat, among her other updates her face can turn better in different angles, while also gaining some new expressions like a surprised face.[16]

In this costume Towa got two new hairstyles, in one she has small braided pigtails, the other one she uses a side ponytail to her left side.

Towa can optionally wear a short black blazer.[39][40]

On 11 August, as part of the "hololive Summer 2022" event, Towa debuted her 3D swimsuit.

  • On 13 August 2021, hololive's Twitter account announced that 12 members including Towa (representing the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters) 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 Fukuoka SoftBank HAWKS scheduled for 3 October 2021 at the Kyocera Dome Osaka stadium called "hololive day."[42]
  • On 9 September 2021, hololive's Twitter account announced a sponsored stream for Square Enix's game Deep Insanity: Asylum, presented by Towa and Kanata, during said stream both sang the games song "Madoromi" the official music video of the song was later released on hololive's Japanese channel on 14 October 2021.[43][44][45]

Mascot and Fans

  • She claims her hat is a pet guardian named Bibi which watches over her in the human world.[46][47][48]
  • Her fanbase is officially called "Kin of Tokoyami" while in Japanese they are called "Tokoyami Kenzoku"「常闇眷属」but Towa calls her fans just Kenzoku or Kin.


  • "Repeat after me! Say! Yo! TMD! TMD! Towa-sama Maji Daitenshi! ...Ah, wrong... *panicking*"[49]


  • Towa's surname Tokoyami「常闇」can be divided as such.
    • The first kanji「常」can be read as "Tsune/Toko/Jou" which means "Always/Everlasting /Endless."
    • The second kanji「闇」can be read as "Yami/Kura/An" which means "Darkness."
    • So her surname can be translated as "Everlasting Darkness."
  • She pronounces "Thank you" as "TenQ" in English, the final portion of her streams where she reads Super Chat donations is known as "TenQ TIME" (てんQ TIME).[50]
  • She likes to say the phrase "Oh my god!" when surprised.
  • Her voice seems to get even deeper when she just wakes up, to the point can be mistaken for a male voice.[51]
  • Coco tends to call Towa "mentally challenged" due to her not appearing in Asacoco commercials and, ironically, acting much less deranged than the rest of 4th generation. According to Towa herself, she has a tight schedule, has to attend the university and to sleep well; this is why she rarely comes in contact with Coco.
  • Towa is a big Nintendo fan, her favorite Nintendo franchises are Yoshi and Pokémon.
  • Towa's name has been used to create some puns by overseas fans, the most notable being "Towaiting" used by her fans instead of "waiting" previous to the start of her streams, on a minor note fans also used "Towater" during her 3D model debut whenever she drank water.
