OtapediaKiryu Coco - VTuber

Kiryu Coco is a bilingual member of Hololive’s 4th Generation and is often seen as one of the VTubers that helped bridge the gap between the Japanese and English speaking audiences. Furthermore, Coco is one of the most Super Chat’ed (YouTube’s form of donations) individuals on the platform, making her potentially one of the most influential VTubers in Hololive.

Kiryu Coco Background

As a member of Hololive, Kiryu Coco uploads a variety of content on her channel that can range anywhere from game streams, karaoke streams, her famous Reddit meme reviews, and more. When it comes to games, Coco is particularly known for playing games like ARK: Survival Evolved and the Yakuza series.

Kiryu Coco History

Kiryu Coco made her first debut on YouTube on December 28th, 2019, and had already reached 10,000 subscribers before her first stream. Only three days later, on December 31st, this number grew to over 50,000. On April 18th, 2020 Coco’s channel would receive a temporary live streaming ban that lasted until April 24. During this time, Coco would upload pre-recorded episodes of her normally live news segment, AsaCoco, until the ban was lifted. Shortly after she received this ban, Coco would reach 300,000 subscribers. Her 3D model was later revealed on June 27th, 2020. By the end of 2020, Coco’s channel would gain a total of 800,000 subscribers. Coco would later receive an updated Live2D model on February 7th, 2021, and reached one million subscribers the following week.

Kiryu Coco Physical Description

Although Coco is a dragon, she takes the form of a young adult woman with long, straight orange hair with a yellow highlight, a pair of dark purple horns, red and purple eyes, a wide purple dragon tail, and pointed ears. Her original outfit consists of a school uniform with a black, white, and magenta top and a red skirt. The chest of the uniform is decorated with a large red and purple amulet with dragon horns growing out of it. This outfit also includes a pair of black asymmetrical socks, a black and white bow tied on one of her horns, and a hairband.

On New Year’s Day 2021, Coco would also receive a special outfit for her Live2D model. This red, black, and gold kimono is decorated with multi-colored cherry blossoms and is tied with a dark purple and gold obi. Underneath the kimono, Coco’s chest and one of her legs is tied with cloth bandages. Her hair is also tied up into a swirling side ponytail and is decorated with an intricate floral ornament.

Kiryu Coco Personality

Compared to most other members of Hololive, Kiryu Coco is often a boisterous individual that enjoys pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with on stream, often leading to rather unusual topics whenever she goes live. She can also speak fluent English and is very familiar with Western memes, humor, and culture. Despite her sometimes brash behavior and troublesome antics, Coco is also widely known for being unbelievably hard working behind the scenes and is very prone to accidentally overworking herself. Coco is also very closely associated with Amane Kanata, as the two ended up living together along with Hoshimachi Suisei after the group proposed the idea of a “Holohouse”, a place where any member can stop by on their way to and from the Hololive office.

Associated Company

Hololive Production is a large VTuber agency that is owned by Cover Corporation. Although its Japanese-speaking branch is by far Hololive’s largest, the agency also manages several generations of English and Indonesian-speaking branches as well. Currently, Hololive’s Japan branch has 7 individual generations: five numbered generations, a “GAMERS” generation, and the first group of VTubers often called the “0th” generation. Kiryu Coco is one of the members of the 4th Generation, which also includes Amane Kanata, Tokoyami Towa, Tsunomaki Watame, and Himemori Luna.

Notable Series

While Coco is known for a variety of different content, some of her most popular gaming streams include her playthroughs of ARK: Survival Evolved and the Yakuza series.

ARK: Survival Evolved

Although several members of Hololive play this game today, Coco is often credited as the one who introduced many members to ARK and started what many call the “Hololive ARK Addiction”. Her love of this particular game runs deep and is often called upon by others for her knowledge regarding the game. Coco even purchased one of the DLCs of the game for Roboco-san after Roboco-san realized she forgot to buy it before streaming.

Yakuza Series

The Yakuza series (Ryu ga Gotoku in Japan) is known for its unique blend of action, storytelling, and humor and is one of Coco’s most popular series of gaming streams on her channel. Although Coco simply loves the series herself, she has also become closely associated with yakuza as well, as she shares the same family name as the main protagonist for most of the series, Kiryu Kazuma.

Other Activities

Some of her most popular content other than her gaming streams include her “AsaCoco” news segments and her Reddit meme reviews. AsaCoco is a regularly airing stream of news regarding Hololive and its members with Coco’s unique twist of humor and presentation. Although it began as a daily segment, AsaCoco was later only broadcasted three times a week and, as of November 9th, 2021, is currently on hiatus. Coco’s Reddit meme reviews, however, is a currently ongoing weekly series that features Coco and another member of Hololive as they go through posts made by fans in the official Hololive subreddit. This series in particular has led to many members wanting to reach out to English-speaking fans overseas, resulting in several members joining the subreddit themselves and posting about updates and upcoming streams.
