In the statement, which you can read below, Anycolor gave a quick rundown of who Mysta is. It also thanked Mysta for his “hard work and achievements” at Nijisanji. After August 27, 2023, all of Mysta’s accounts will go private and sales of his merchandise will stop. You will still be able to purchase them if they’re in stock, but Anycolor will not produce anymore. Fans of Mysta can still send in letters until September 27, 2023.

Though Mysta has not made any Tweets about it, he states that he first decided to graduate in February 2023. He mentioned that he burned out about six or seven months ago and has not been able to recover. After a while, he realized that he was simply done with VTubing. However, he decided to stay until he fulfilled all of his obligations.

Mysta Rias debuted as part of Luxiem in December 2021. The members of Luxiem were the first male livers in Nijisanji EN, and there were many clips of them at the time showing their dynamic. As of the time of writing, Mysta has 1.11 million subscribers on YouTube.

Mysta Rias will graduate from Nijisanji on August 27, 2023. The other members of Luxiem—Luca Kaneshiro, Shu Yamino, Vox Akuma, and Ike Eveland—are still livers at Nijisanji.
