Personality

Yozora Mel is known for her sweet, calm and caring personality, giving a contrast to what people might expect from her design. She commonly puts others before herself if it means they will benefit from it. She speaks politely and gives a comfy vibe, but also speaks quietly, which can make it difficult to hear her sometimes. She can be questionable at times though, in major part seen when she's with Yuzuki Choco.

History

Background

Yozora Mel opened her Twitter account on 16 April 2018 while her YouTube channel was started on 25 April although her introduction video was not uploaded until 13 May.

2019

On 27 March 2019, she announced in a live-stream that she would be getting a 3D model.[5]

On 29 March, a sneak peek of her new 3D model was shown and the debut date was revealed to be on 2 April.[6] Shirakami Fubuki noted on her stream later that night that the 3D model outfit would be different compared to the original 2D illustration.[7][8] was revealed in a stream on 2 April.[9]

On 1 June, she reached 50,000 YouTube subscribers.

On 23 August, she debuted her swimsuit 3D costume during a stream.[10]

On 6 November, she published in Twitter that her channel was demonetized, explaining that a song she performed was the cause,[11] however like the rest of hololive girls afflicted by this issue, she erased or made private most of her ASMR videos.

On 29 December, she announced on her Twitter account, that she would get a new year 2D costume.[12]

2020

On 1 January, she debuted her new year costume during a stream, being her second 2D costume overall.[13]

On 24 January, along with the other hololive girls up to the third generation, she debuted her 3D idol outfit at hololive's 1st fes. Nonstop Story.[14]

On 29 January, she reached 100,000 YouTube subscribers.

On 31 January, she announced on her Twitter account the remonetization of her channel.

On 16 May, she revealed that she has been victim of harassment in a public statement on her Twitter account, explaining why she had been on semihiatus since October 2019, as she felt unsafe because the perpetrator was someone she knew in real life.

She stated that after taking things to the authorities and court the harassment has stopped since March. In the statement she thanked her fans and hoped to be able to continue her activities at some point. She also stated that she decided to made this issue public wishing that this doesn't happen to other people including other hololive members.[15][16]

On 24 May, Cover Corp, hololive's parent company also released an statement about the issue. They apologized for their mistakes into handling the situation, announcing changes within the company to prevent this for ever happening again and paying for any fees Mel went through into handling with this issue.[17]

After been on full hiatus since early April, Mel announced on 23 June that she would continue with her activities.[18]

On 24 June, after two attempts being prematurely ended by YouTube's algorithm, she returned to her activities with a stream, where she was warmly received by fellow VTubers and fans.[19]

On 7 July, she reached 200,000 YouTube subscribers.

On 31 July, she announced on her Twitter account that her original 2D model would be get an update.[20] She debuted her updated model the next day on 1 August during a stream, featuring more facial expressions, her hair and bat ornament have much better movement, she received improved jiggle physics, she can turn freely in more directions in line with the model capabilities of hololive members from the GAMERS unit onwards.[21]

On 27 August, she announced on her Twitter account that she would get her third 2D costume.[22] She debuted this costume the next day on 28 August during a stream. Just like her New Year costume, Mel has long hair but this time she uses twintails, with bat wings accessories on both sides. Her previous hair ornament, that used to be shaped like a bat, is now an inverted heart, probably in response to Mel's constant struggle with YouTube's algorithm bot taking down her streams in the past. This costume doesn't show any cleavage, instead using a white blouse with a black corset, and also includes a black and white miniskirt maintained in place with orange suspenders, also decorated with inverted hearts. Finally, she uses asymmetrical tights with shoes decorated with hearts.[23]

On 27 October, she reached 300,000 YouTube subscribers.
