Profile

"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. [7]

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.[8]

Personality

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).

Mascot and Fans

  • She claims her hat is a pet guardian named Bibi which watches over her in the human world.[38][39][40]
  • 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.

Quotes

  • "Repeat after me! Say! Yo! TMD! TMD! Towa-sama Maji Daitenshi! ...Ah, wrong... *panicking*"[41]

Trivia

  • Towa's surnanme 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).[42]
  • 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.[43]
  • 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.
