Hololive English’s Gawr Gura has reached 4 million subscribers on her YouTube channel. The most popular VTuber to date set a new record shortly after her WWE 2K22 stream on June 15, 2022. The official Reddit post celebrating the milestone used the term “chumbuds,” which refers to Gura’s fanbase.
Gawr Gura became the most popular Virtual YouTuber after she surpassed the Japanese VTuber Kizuna AI in July 2021. Later in the same month, Gura also reached 3 million subscribers. It took around 11 more months for the VTuber to add another million to her subscriber count. Gawr Gura is the first VTuber in the world to have 4 million subscribers.
Gawr Gura is a member of the Hololive English – Myth group of VTubers who debuted on September 12, 2020. Cover has since expanded the Hololive English roster with the VSinger IRyS on July 11, 2021, and the second generation Council on August 22, 2021.
Cover’s Hololive VTubers are also known for producing their own songs. Gawr Gura launched her first original song, titled “Reflect,” in June 2021. Its music video appeared in March 2022.
In September 2021, the company formed UMISEA, a multinational collaboration group named after the Japanese and English words for “sea.” The group consists of Gawr Gura, her groupmate Ninomae Ina’nis, and Hololive Japan’s Minato Aqua and Houshou Marine. Their first original song is “Domination! All the World Is an Ocean,” and it is available to listen to on YouTube and Spotify.
