HAACHAMA, also known as Akai Haato, will return from her 8-month-long hiatus on November 1st.
Her management announced that she would not be able to participate at day 2 of hololive SUPER EXPO 2023 on May 8, before officially commencing her on hiatus on March 20th.
On September 20th, HAACHAMA released a statement to both her English and Japanese fans. In the video, she gave an update on her situation, and asked everyone to wait a little longer.
“I’m sorry for taking a long break… .Thank you for all your messages and support. Sometimes I feel like I’m falling apart. But when I saw the kind messages I realized there was a place for me and my home was safe,” the hololive VTuber shared.
“I want to show that I’m getting better little by little… Recently, I have been working hard to regain my strength by eating healthy foods and going outside a little more.”
She broke her silence once again on October 30th, when she finally teased her return.
HAACHAMA will go live on November 1st, 9:00 pm JST on her YouTube channel.
