Anime NYC To Host Hololive’s Hoshimachi Suisei, Mori Calliope, and Advent

Anime NYC has revealed that several hololive members will be making an appearance at this year’s event, which is set to be held in November. 

November 17, the first day of Anime NYC 2023, will feature hololive Gen 0’s blue-haired songstress Hoshimachi Suisei in her debut U.S. performance. The performance will also feature hololive English -Myth-‘s Mori Calliope as a special guest.

The event’s second day will then turn the spotlight to hololive English -Advent-, the third generation of hololive English that made its debut in July of this year. The five Advent members, which include the agency’s first twin VTubers Fuwawa and Mococo Abyssguard, will appear for a panel dubbed hololive English -Advent- NYC Invasion.

Calliope’s presence on Hoshimachi’s upcoming performance mirrors the latter’s guest appearance on Calliope’s debut solo concert, New Underworld Order, in July 2022. The two VTubers have also collaborated on songs like Calliope’s “CapSule” and Hoshimachi’s “Wicked,” with the latter being co-written by Calliope as well. Fans have given the duo the pair name Death Star, referencing Calliope’s Grim Reaper lore and Hoshimachi’s celestial motif.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
