OtapediaTsunomaki Watame - VTuber

Tsunomaki Watame is a Japanese VTuber from Hololive’s 4th Generation and is known for her soft, friendly voice and her focus on music based content on her channel. Since her debut at the end of 2019, she has gained an impressive following in the VTuber community.

Tsunomaki Watame Background

Tsunomaki Watame is a sheep girl that, like many members managed by Hololive, streams a wide range of content on her YouTube channel. Unlike most, however, Watame’s channel is more focused on music rather than playing games.

Tsunomaki Watame History

Although she made her official YouTube debut on December 29th, 2019, Watame’s channel was made toward the beginning of the month, which allowed her to gain over 10,000 subscribers before she had uploaded anything. In April 2020, she received a small update to her Live2D model that fixed an issue with the color of her neck. On July 12th, Watame revealed her 3D model for the first time and debuted her first original song, which is titled “Ai-mai Chocolate”. In December 2020, her Live2D model received a major update and Watame teased that she would be one of the eight members receiving a New Year’s outfit on New Year’s Day 2021.

Tsunomaki Watame Physical Description

Tsunomaki Watame is a sheep girl that claims to be four (sheep) years old but has the appearance of a young human girl with a pair of dark, spiraling horns on her head. She also has purple eyes and long, pastel blond hair with a small ahoge (cowlick) on the top of her head. Her main outfit consists of a white dress lined with fluffy wool along its top, bottom, and sleeves. She also wears a pink and white cape, a pair of black, white, and pink boots, and a brown pouch that she wears around her hip. A white and pink harp can also be found in her left arm, which fits her well, as Watame claims to be a bard.

Watame’s New Year’s outfit is a multi-layered Japanese-style dress that is red, orange, and white and tied with a black and gold striped obi. From the obi down, she wears a cream and orange-colored ankle-length skirt with a floral and water ripple pattern. The outfit also includes a pair of tall black boots, a red hat, and orange flowers that are tied in her hair. Watame can also choose between three different hairstyles with this outfit: her classic straight hair, twin braids, or twin hair buns.

Tsunomaki Watame Personality

Although other members of Hololive like Shirogane Noel, Yukihana Lamy, and Ookami Mio are considered to be very kind to others, many consider Watame to be the kindest member of the 4th Generation. She always speaks warmly and politely and her voice is said to be warm and fluffy like sheep’s wool. She can also be quite sheepish, especially when it comes to playing horror, and can be quite jumpy when scared. On the other hand, Watame is also very emotional and is easily moved to tears. Ironically enough, when it comes to singing, Watame can become quite energetic and is capable of producing a much more powerful vocal range than most might expect from the way she usually speaks. Furthermore, Watame has a wild side that she shows off from time to time, like when she popularized the “gangimari” face (a crazy, wide-eyed expression) among several members of Hololive.

Associated Company

Hololive Production (often shortened to Hololive) is a large VTuber agency that is based mainly in Japan but has smaller branches that speak other languages in the world like English and Indonesian. As of April 2021, the agency manages over 50 different VTubers in total. Hololive is also owned by Cover Corporation, which began by developing AR and VR software, but shifted to producing and managing “virtual idols” in 2017. While many members stream on their own time, Hololive also organizes events for members to participate in. Such examples include Hololive’s concerts like “Nonstop Story” and “Bloom” and collaborations with companies like Bushiroad, Lawson, Sanrio, and more.

Notable Releases

While Watame streams games like Monster Hunter Rise, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, Watame is more known for her music-focused content like “Watame no Uta” (“Watame’s Song Corner”) and “Watame Night Fever”.

“Watame no Uta”

Videos in this series are generally between 5 and 15 minutes long and consist of a series of vocal warmups, storytelling, a section titled “Tsunomaki Janken” (Tsunomaki Rock-Paper-Scissors), and song covers. While the show originally acted as a sort of pre-show to Kiryu Coco’s “AsaCoco” segments prior to its hiatus, Watame always gives it her all when it comes to her singing and never uploads anything she is not personally satisfied with. Although the segment was only intended to continue until March 31st, 2020, Watame continued producing videos in the series, though she has changed the schedule and format slightly as of June 26th, 2020.

Watame Night Fever

This series refers to Watame’s karaoke streams, which often occur once a week and usually lasts several hours, but can range anywhere from thirty minutes to over nine hours. While many other members of Hololive also host karaoke streams, Watame is one of the few members that have them on a planned, weekly basis.
