The Idolmaster va-liv Vtubers Are Making Their Formal Debuts

Bandai Namco shared details about the formal debuts of Project Im@s va-liv, the Vtuber group affiliated with The Idolmaster franchise. The three Vtubers in this group are in the process of making their proper debuts as Live Streamer Idols with new songs under production.

Project Im@s va-liv consists of three members: Manaka Tomori, Cosmo Kamizuru, and Sara Letora Oliveira Utagawa—the latter of which is depicted as a half-Brazilian. The three Vtubers made their original debuts in early May 2023. They also appeared at Bandai Namco’s Tokyo Game Show 2023 streams.

A major turning point was made when Bandai Namco held “The Last Statement” online live concert at the end of March 2024. The company concluded that all three members had cleared the final examination to become Live Streamer Idols. The va-liv Vtubers have since been affiliated with 876 Production, the same agency featured in the 2009 DS game The Idolmaster: Dearly Stars.

Bandai Namco also revealed that the idol Vtubers will receive new songs. D.watt, Steaka, and Ohtora & NewK will compose new songs for Manaka, Cosmo, and Letora, respectively. Bandai Namco will publish these songs via its Asobinotes brand, which also handles tracks from Hatsuboshi Gakuen: The Idolmaster.

The Project Im@s va-liv Vtuber idols’ formal debuts will culminate with the Producer Meeting event titled “From Now On!!!” Bandai Namco will hold this event physically at the Garden Shin-Kiba Factory in Tokyo, Japan, on September 28, 2024.
