Hololive Graduation of Kiryu Coco

Thread Description
hololive 4th Generation's superstar gracefully departs from the organization on July 1, 2021

Lost Branch

I wish more people thought this way. So many just pass off roommatte accounts as "no different than Twitch thots", when, at least in the case of Coco, that is far from the truth. People have loyally followed, supported, and promoters these v-tubers because there is a real personality behind the anime avatar.

I really hope she starts posting there a lot more after her graduation as Coco. She should, at the very least, get a respectable boost in subscribers, especially from those who either do not know of the account or feel comfortable watching it while she's active on hololive.
Yeah, I watch for the personality, not because of how they look.

She did stream on her birthday two days ago, and will hopefully start streaming more often now that she's leaving Cover. Going through her videos, she used to stream regularly so hopefully she gets back to that.


I've again updated the original post with further information from Coco's recent stream regarding her plans. If you'd rather not read the full review, here are some key points:
  • Her intent to graduate was not a sudden occurrence but rather something planned months ago. This seems compatible with changes she's been making and planning both on her roommate account.
  • There is further commentary by her that promotes the "creative differences" being the main reason why she's leaving hololive.
  • She will continue to involve herself in v-tubing in some form or another.
  • This is nothing new, but Kanata is cute and based and these two are great together.
I've got to say, based on everything I've read over the last few days, I am feeling much better about this whole thing. It absolutely sucks that we'll be losing Coco as a character, there's no way around that. Really hate to see lost one of the best designs of any v-tuber, but seeing that she is doing this more on her terms rather than being forced out, either indirectly or not, makes this pill much easier to swallow.



Coco is going to be revealing a new outfit she was awarded for reaching one million subscribers with just under a week to go until graduation! :ro-excited:

I hope more people understand with this that even though a v-tuber might get a new model, among other things like rig updates and the like, this does not mean they are safe from graduation. I'm fairly certain there was a similar event a couple months ago with a Nijisanji v-tuber who had graduated not long after she got a new model (or maybe it was just a costume?)

Anyway, I truly hope all the drawchads out there are ready to work overtime, because there isn't a whole lot of time left to go. :uni-scare:

If she hadn't spoken so much about the circumstances surrounding her graduation, I legitimately could have seen this exchange in some form as a possibility. :anime-think:

I do fully expect them to either fully announce the girls or drop dates with respect to the next EN generation to distract everyone from the loss of Coco. No chance we aren't told something substantial next month.

Just watched the interview with Yagoo she put out.

She certainly has a lot of reason to hold some bad blood I think, between being creatively choked out and their dealing with the Taiwan incident. Yet, in this last month, she has been very helpful to assist Cover with maintaining a positive reputation to her fans and others after she's gone. She clearly doesn't want to see the company suffer from her departure.

I guess what I'm getting at is what is the motivation to be so supportive despite everything? Maybe it's not for Cover, but to help preserve what the others have? She's just so gracious that it's hard for my reptile brain to comprehend it.


I'm honestly going to miss Coco, too since she was one of the V-Tubers that had me stay in the Rabbit Hole after another got me into it. She's had quite the farewell tour after being creatively decimated from the Taiwan Acknowledgement Disaster and it was worth seeing it all until here. Nothing's going to feel the same again, and I'm still saying this despite being convinced enough to sub to her Roommate.


This is it, folks. We've made it to the end. :satania-cry:

Edit: Wow, that was something special. The wholesome majesty of it all almost helped numb the pain below an excruciating level. I certainly expect this to serve as the gold standard for all future graduation streams.

I had given some thought to updating this post with various highlights from the stream, but I would much rather everyone take the time to watch it in full and experience it for yourself. For a quick overview, Coco introduces the stream and then leads into a pre-recorded segment where she has an interview with every single hololive generation, each of which being subtitled in English. Afterwards, she joins up with her fellow genmates to perform as an idol one last time and sing three songs (Shiny Smily Story, キセキ結び, and Weather Hackers). The stream ends. "Thanks for tuning in."

Thank you so much for all that you've done, Coco. Your content, your personality, your jokes, and your influence are all treasures to behold. You have truly left such an impact not just on your fans but the industry as a whole. Your companions will forever be better as a result of your actions, both personally and professionally. You should leave hololive with your head held high. You're the fucking best, bitch.
