So Netflix made their own Vtuber

So I hardly saw everyone talk about it. But did anyone see a new vtuber that Netflix created called N-Ko? Basically, she was created to help Netflix draw more subscribers to watch more anime shows. And she has her own show on Youtube. Not sure what to think of this. I mean, if this was Pluto TV or Tubi TV, I could see that happen. But Netflix of all things? I can tell that Netflix is trying hard to advertise to get more subscribers, but creating her? What does everyone think of this?

I give it a month before she starts talking about trans rights and other such bullshit.
I haven't heard her speak English yet, and I don't think Netflix will run their talent like Nijisanji (who don't even talk about gay stuff in a political sense AFAIK), so I actually kind of doubt it.

On the 2nd video that I posted, she does start speaking in English around the 1:45 mark. But it's only for 13 seconds.

I don't know if it's just me but she kinda just feels soulless, like the way she's reading the script with so little emotion comes off as a little too robotic and fake IMO. Dont know how good this will be as a marketing gimick especially for a Japanese audience

Is it appropriate or ironic that she's a sheep, to represent the people that keep consooming?

That being said, there are some good Netflix originals, buuut... yknow... Netflix...
Even more appropriate is her name being "shit"
