Sony Music Entertainment (Japan)’s VTuber agency PRISM Project announced its newest wave of talents for its 5th generation. Their debut streams are scheduled for April 28, 2023, beginning 7:00 PM PST. The talents are: Ami Amami, Kou Tsubame, and Lana Shikami.
Ami Amami will debut on April 28, 2023 at 7:00 PM PDT:
Born on a planet without the traditional four seasons, Ami Amami was inspired to seek out our world by a book she read in which she was entranced by tales of worlds with lush springs, sunny summers, dazzling autumns, and snowy winters. By chance, her very first experience on Earth inspires her once again–this time, to spread her love for nature and the beauty of the four seasons through the power of song. Her pastimes include humming in the rain, playing in puddles with frogs, and bringing joy and hope to all who meet her.
Kou Tsubame will debut at April 28, 2023 at 8:00 PM PDT:
Hailing from the far future, from a cyberpunk world echoing with distant thunder, Kou Tsubame toiled away at menial labor in ore mines and factories as just another mindless, robotic construct–until, whether by sheer luck or perhaps by divine providence, she was struck by lightning, her circuits and mind warping, fracturing, and reconstituting into her society’s very first fully sentient cybernetic being. Her one-of-a-kind personality and newfound intelligence led her to develop both an insatiable curiosity about all things human and a growing sense of horror at what androids on her planet really were–automatons deprived of the freedom to be anything they could dream of. Leaving behind her now-lonely and cold planet, she found herself on Earth, where entirely new experiences such as “friendship” and “love” awaited her.
Lana Shikami will debut on April 28 at 9:00 PM PDT:
The empress of a far-future society which venerates her as an avatar of the sun, Lana was possessed of a haughtiness and authority proper for the ruler of her own nation. One day, her loyal subjects awoke with the sunrise to find that their alluring, beguiling empress had left her life of power and luxury behind. She next turned up on Earth, making a new life for herself on a small, rural island chain in the southern hemisphere. While she had traded her riches and imperial might for serene mountains, green pastures, and an abundance of sheep(?), she still wielded the awesome power of her magical voice, showing it to the people of Earth as a reward for their kindness and friendship. Her new, slow life in the countryside begins as she embarks on a journey to throw off the shackles of political responsibility and chart her own course as the golden lady of the land of the long, white cloud.
