Friend A wrote a letter explaining the situation, as well as her thoughts on her time at hololive. She starts by saying that she was on hiatus for about three months due to a family member’s ailing health. However, she judged that it would be difficult for her to return to her duties at hololive as she’d initially planned, and thus decided to leave the company. She apologizes to everyone who was waiting for her return.

Though A-chan entered hololive to support her best friend Hoshino Sora’s dreams of becoming an idol, she was able to experience a lot through her communications with fans and the new VTuber culture. She noted that as a fan, she will continue to support hololive and hopes to see more people around the world fall in love with it.

Friend A is a staff member, but she has her own Live2D and 3D models. At times, she collaborated with hololive talents on streams, as well as held her own streams. Behind the scenes, she has a variety of duties, such as logistical coordination and stream troubleshooting.

As of the end of June 2024, Friend A (or A-chan) is no longer with hololive.
