vtuber legend

A new trailer has dropped for the upcoming anime VTuber Legend: How I Went Viral after Forgetting to Turn Off My Stream, letting us know the debut date, additional people in the cast and details on songs.

The anime, which is based on a light novel series by Nana Nanato, is officially launching on July 7, a month from today. As for the newly unveiled voice talents, Azusa Tadokoro plays Arisu Soma, M.A.O plays Eirai Sonokaze, and Ai Kayano plays Kaeru Yamatani.

The opening theme song is titled “Virtual Show Time!” and performed by Ayane Sakura in her roles as Awayuki Kokorone and Shuwa-chan. There’s also an insert song called “Live Start” that’s performed by the cast of Live-on.

J-Novel Club is publishing the original light novels in English and gave this description for the plot:

Twenty-year-old former wage slave Yuki Tanaka now works among her idols: the streamers of Live-On, one of Japan’s top VTuber companies. As the gorgeous, polite Awayuki Kokorone, she delivers only the most ladylike content. Unfortunately, her subscriber count and savings are at rock bottom.

One evening, after Yuki thinks she’s ended her stream, she cracks a few cold ones—and more than a few crude jokes—while watching Live-On’s video archives. But her viewers hear it all, and clips of her bawdy, drunken commentary go viral overnight. Yuki thinks her career is over…until her manager reveals that everyone at Live-On has been waiting for her to snap all along and gives her free rein to drink on-stream.

Now free of all feigned purity, she jumps right into her new “rowdy drunk” character and is welcomed into the fold by her fellow Live-On VTubers, who turn out to be just as crazy as she is! With her views and finances skyrocketing, Yuki’s work—for the first time in her life—is actually fun!
