Sony Music Entertainment Japan recently launched a VTuber project titled VERSEn, with five members debuting on November 19, 2021. The members will hold their first collaborative stream on December 3, 2021 at 8:00am JST/12am CEY (3pm PT/6pm ET on December 2, 2021). They will also use that time to share a special announcement.

The Sony VERSEn Vtuber project aims to become a cross-media series, utilizing live-streaming, music, anime, illustrations, novels, and manga to share the story of why these five girls become VTubers. The tagline for the project is “A story about girls who connect the world.”

In November 2021, a teaser trailer was posted to the official YouTube channel. It was produced by mazilla, who worked on the openings for Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia and DARLING in the FRANXX, as well as Yukiko Horiguchi, the chief animation director and character designer for K-On! and Lucky Star.

Below is a list of the five Sony VERSEn VTubers and their specific traits, as well as links to their respective Twitter accounts.

    • Designed by Aka Akasaka.
  • Hitoshiro Itsuki – Serious and hardworking, Itsuki is the caretaker of VERSEn. Growing up in a strict household made her a little stubborn, but she’s also tough enough to take on any challenge.
