A new key visual and a new cast member have been revealed for the VTuber Legend: How I Went Viral after Forgetting to Turn Off My Stream anime. The latest to join the cast is Yoko Hikasa, who voices Live-On first generation member Haru Asagiri, and you can see her character visual and the new key visual below.

The anime is being made at TNK, with Takuya Asaoka of Immoral Guild helming the project as director. The person in charge of overseeing series scripts is Deko Akao, who is known for working on Noragami and Komi Can’t Communicate. Credit for character design goes to Reina Iwasaki, who has worked on The Dawn of the Witch.

The franchise started out as a light novel series by Nana Nanato. J-Novel Club publishes them 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!
