Asahina Akane, a VTuber with the Japanese branch of Nijisanji, will graduate from the company on May 24, 2023. In an announcement via Anycolor’s Twitter account, it stated that Akane will leave both Nijisanji and Nornis in order to focus on her school and studies. Her YouTube channel, fan club, and social media will go private on May 26, 2023.
Official goods of Akane will no longer be produced. As well, fans will have until June 30, 2023 to send in their letters to her. Anycolor deeply thanked fans and employees for supporting Asahina Akane throughout her career. She debuted in August 2020 as part of the Selene Girls’ Academy Drama Club group. She is also in Nornis with Inui Toko and Machita Chima, which is a singer unit. As of the time of writing, Asahina Akane reached 239k subscribers on YouTube.
Akane also stated on her own social media that it is due to difficulties in balancing her streaming activities and schooling that she chose to leave. She also thanked everyone for allowing her to experience so many amazing things. While contracts may differ between the English and Japanese branches, we know that the contract for EN stipulates that a liver should upload content at least three times a week. Even if the JP branch is more laissez-faire with its talents’ schedules, Akane might not want to have this commitment in her mind while she’s working on her studies.
