Although Phase Connect did not disclose specific information about the breaches, the company stated that there were discussions without mutual agreement by both parties that led to the decision. As of April 24, 2023, Fuura Yuri will end her activities, except for a final farewell video prepared for April 30, 2023.
Phase Connect also promised a full refund for individuals who contributed to her latest PC donation goal. To claim it, you have to fill out an official request form. That will be available until May 1, 2023.
Fuura Yuri first debuted as Amaris Yuri back in July 2021 as part of the now disbanded VTuber agency CyberLive. However in March 2022, she and her colleague Kaneko Lumi graduated and became independent VTubers. Both of them joined Phase Connect in April 2022 as an inter-generation called Phase Invaders.
According to Phase Connect, all of Fuura Yuri’s content, social media accounts, and merchandise will be taken offline on May 1, 2023. A similar case of VTuber contract termination occurred in March 2023 with Nijisanji’s Zaion LanZa.
