Mito's introduction.

Profile

Mito is a sophomore high school student. She has a tsundere personality nature while trying to be a serious class president. Even though she does her best, she slightly feels her efforts are in vain. She often wonders if she spoke too much after giving a speech and feel depressed afterward.[2]

Personality

In stark contrast to her position as 'NIJISANJI Queen' and being the YouTuber that made NIJISANJI into the biggest VTuber company in Japan, Mito is far from what she may appear or her reputation might suggest. Despite her attempts to keep up appearances, the ridiculous "kusoge" (クソゲー low-end/crap games) that she plays on her streams, her strange movie choices, and the stories of silly things that she has done in her life often works against those attempts. She has an uncanny skill to take anything the wrong way and make it completely different (her Animal Crossing: New Horizons streams have become something of a soap opera with relationships, betrayal, and heartbreak). She also insists that people draw more lewd fanart and Ero Manga of her. Mito also has a surreal sense of humor that manifested primarily through her bizarre April Fool's Day video.

    • The five of them started the plan for the unit since 2020 but it was on hold until 14 July 2021 when they held their first stream together.[27] They are the second NIJISANJI unit that has its own YouTube channel after ChroNoiR.

Trivia

  • Color: #E43F3B [28]
  • Early on her career, one of her most funny moments was when she mistakenly played the BL game Stereotype Boys’ Love by Europe Kikaku by thinking it was just a kusoge typing game. Once the gay sex explicit scene appeared, she used her avatar to hide the screen and uttered her now famous catchphrase Watakushi de kakusanakya! (わたくしで隠さなきゃ! Gotta hide it with myself!)
  • One of her first streams was done over a washing machine; in others she spoke about watching The Human Centipede movie - quite a rarity for a supposed young Japanese girl - or about eating grass when she was a child and how clovers had a better taste than other shrubbery. These themes are often seen in fanart.
  • Mito was originally a 2D-only, face-only streamer using the NIJISANJI app. On April 7th(?) 2018, she did a 2-hour-long NicoNico-only stream (which was mirrored to YouTube by third parties) where she used 3D-capture technology to become a fully 3D virtual YouTuber.
  • She enjoys collecting meaningless articles from the Line News app and uses them as the wallpaper on her mobile phone.
  • If she really enjoys a ride at an amusement park, she'll draw a map of the ride's layout. She once drew a map of Tokyo DisneySea's Indiana Jones Adventure.
  • She is knowledgeable about more obscure or questionable aspects of otaku subculture; in one video she had posted a copy of the Louise copypasta referring to herself; in a tweet she referred to reading Comic LO, a lolicon manga.
  • She was a guest on Japanese TV show Virtual Buzz Talk with KMNZ LIZ and LITA.
  • As of mid-2018 she is one of the most popular livestreamers; some streams attract tens of thousands of viewers, and Superchat donations have exceeded the equivalent of $20,000 USD in some streams.
  • Because of her stream on a washing machine, she partnered with the Japanese Chemical and cosmetics company Kao to advertise their brand of bleach called Wide Haiter EX. [1] Kao offered a event for fans of Mito (as she appeared on the Moe-T Washer MK-1) and they received more than 1000 applications. Only 30 fans were chosen and they were able to interact with her and received a special T-shirt and a bottle of Wide Haiter EX.[2]
  • On 12 January 2019 she took part in Higuchi Kaede's first live event Kana-Dero at Zepp Osaka Bayside, along with others.

Tsukino Mito's April Fool's stream

On 1 April 2019, Tsukino Mito went live with her April Fool's stream. It was previously teased on Twitter that a guest star would be appearing with her. The stream, however, was only 18 minutes long and no other Vtuber besides Mito appeared. Instead, right as the stream was starting, a video appeared through static on Mito's stream, revealing a bedroom and a figure dressed in a full Tsukino Mito cosplay (including a kigurumi mask and zentai bodysuit). The figure, later known as "Nazo no Mito" (謎ノ美兎 lit. Mysterious Rabbit) by fans, proceeded to spend the entirety of the stream dancing, eating chicken, lunging at the camera and speaking to Mito through a Mito soundboard. The stream was made private right after it ended, (going along with the joke her stream was hijacked) although it was reuploaded later, gaining over 700,000 views. The stream and the bizarre character were very popular among fans, and perhaps because of that Nazo no Mito later appeared in Tsukino Mito's TV commercial on December 31st. She made a reappearance on the April Fool's stream for 2020 in which she broke through dimensions and invaded Mito's virtual world. Two minutes of cut content that has nearly reached a million views were released days later.
