VTuber Reveals Wife With Kids, Fans React – Kudasai

Shiobuki Asuka is a popular virtual YouTuber (VTuber) who focuses on activities such as video games and ASMR videos (especially if they have something erotic in them). Its design is made by an artist Shibakamabut he recently became a trend due to a series of posts where he revealed a fact that affected his community: she is a single mother, she has a daughter in primary school.

  • «hey what’s wrong with being a VTuber and having kids? Why do you feel sorry for the children? It’s true that sometimes you can make your children feel lonely. But that happens with any business, not just VTubers, right? Therefore, devote yourself to your family on your days off or in your spare time. (…) Being a VTuber is a job for me. Of course, I’m aware that I’m making her lonely, but I think it’s like that in any job.»
  • «I talked about it with my daughter. I know there are many opinions, but I work actively. My daughter and the other viewers support me, so I just have to keep doing my best. Thanks everyone. (…) I don’t see why a job matters as long as you’re making money. I find this type of part-time work relatively low-paying per hour, but I like it because I can do it at my own pace from the comfort of my own home. The amount of money earned from streaming… There was a time when I was making hundreds of thousands of yen a month, but it’s been decreasing».

And why is the fact that VTuber has children surprising? It turns out that Japanese people often put the VTubers they are fans on a pedestal as “saints”, so the thought of them having a partner, let alone children, seems inconceivable to some. Featured comments included:

  • «I think it would become a problem if, for example, you were ignoring a child’s crying to prioritize your VTuber work».
  • «The problem is that VTubers themselves feed the fantasies of the fans who adore them.».
  • «It’s perfectly fine. You are at home, so if something happens, you can see your children immediately. And your children could one day become VTubers».
  • «Why don’t you just admit that you don’t want anyone to know you’re a single mother, instead of hiding behind your poor social etiquette?».
  • «And why is she defending herself if she is supposedly so proud of what she does? I don’t think he is consistent between what he thinks and what he does».
  • «Good, but don’t complain if your daughter gets locked up and becomes a VTuber in the future too».
  • «I think being a VTuber is the perfect job for a single woman with kids. If there is any problem with your children, you can take care of them immediately. No one will know your face, no one will know your real name, there will be no threats or intimidation».
  • «I think part of the job is to keep private things separate, which he obviously couldn’t do.».
