Use this thread to post about and recommend your favourite indie VTubers. As an example, here's Hina, a Virtual Youtuber focused on farming and cultivation of tomatoes. She also composes her own music, does stuff for Comiket, and even subtitles her own videos in English. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8-XixGs6a_0Q494Ebt1Vyg https://twitter.com/HinaSengariFarm

>>58 >>54 Funnily enough, the SSWV was created because of Nips using them as disposable labor leading to labor shortages under the TIT which is why orientation for TIT is good enough for this. This wasn't meant to be its own program but rather an expansion for those who worked under the TIT to come back. When TIT alumni told the Japanese government to fuck off, they started investigating into the shit companies were doing. Under the SSWV companies get fined if they demand guarantees or refuse to help you find housing. The catch is that you have to already have some of the technical knowhow of the job in question to get in. As an example, people think of hotel staffers for instance as simple cleaners and the like, but in reality that's supposed to be training by understanding how the hotel works inside and out so that as a higher ranking staffer you can direct guests, handle advanced situations, and ensure that resources are allocated efficiently. In an ideal world the worker would do the TIT, go back and work as a mid-level staffer in his/her home country for a few years, then come back for the SSWV. In reality it's just Zainichi, SEAs slipping through the cracks by being just barely profitable or necessary, and Weebs who already have the skillsets in their home countries who want jobs in Japan. Agriculture is the exception. Nips might have historically had little farmland, but now it's an issue of having farmland and the means to make profit, but being unable to get people to live as farmers in the countryside due to inconvenience. If you can stay in the SSWV for at least three years under the ministry of agriculture's branch, they will approve a student visa for you to study agriculture with the intent of opening a farm in Japan in one of said abandoned areas. It's hard work in agriculture, but anyone who doesn't have back injuries can do it and you get used to it after three or four months.

PRISM Project Gen4 chat 11/16/2021 (Tue) 01:33:36 No.660 [Reply]
Non Anon is doing a baby food ranking stream tomorrow. Technically the following day at midnight. This one has the most potential from what I saw of Prism Project to either be a lot of fun or a complete twitch whore trainwreck, so I'm curious what's going to happen with her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcRlMxooPTM She's doing a chat a little later tonight if anons want to check that out as a pre-game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crXhUmnScl0 Meanwhile Kamizuki-chan is a lot of fun and gives off Pippa vibes, but seems to be keeping herself under control for now. Her tastes in anime are somewhat generic but show promise that she's actually an otaku. She likes vaporwave and J-rock. I'm going to wait for a few streams before forming an opinion but I like her so far. She's got the voice that with some more training and practice she could put on a good concert as well. Sumi's lithsp is cute and she seems autistic, but she didn't actually explain anything about her character and seemed underageb&. I'll form an opinion of her based on collabs. She seems fairly comfy but I don't even know much about her. Sara is a complete valley girl who talks 100kmh and has an accent. Her taste in anime is generic trash, but she has decent taste in games and likes punishment games (Dark Souls, Baldur's Gate, etc.) so I might give her a shot if she's playing something I like. She likes taim jingles and citypop though so I can forgive her shit taste in anime. Nobody who likes taims is a bad person. She's live right now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQUlTNNJQ44

The Arena Nene Seal Board owner 09/11/2021 (Sat) 13:04:08 No.2 [Reply] [Last]
Welcome to the arena. Despair, ye who enter here. The arena is something of a venting thread. If you have beef with another anon or with a specific vtuber that is getting out-of-hand, you may have discussion moved to this thread. If you want to discuss negative or obtuse meta content of a vtuber such as a boyfriend fuck list or actual pictures of the actress, you must do it here, or on a different board/website. This thread is still moderated, however rules 0 and 6 do not apply here. Have at each other to your heart's content. Please hide this thread by default if this is content you do not wish to see. I would hide it too, if I had the choice. If anon ever gets to the point where he's exclusively only lurking this thread, new rules may come up. At the end of the day, your oshi is a real girl. She may show gratitude and appreciate her fans, but she does not love you. EDIT: As a reminder, please familiarize yourself with the Global Rules of anon.cafe as Romania has laws regarding unlawful violation of privacy and doxxing that this site is beholden to. Should you choose to personally investigate matters, you do so at your own risk. My legal take on this unless the site owner disagrees and corrects me, is that if the information was publicly available at one time, then it does not fall under the Romanian criminal code unless a request for deletion is submitted since it falls under the internet's default fair use license honored by most countries. Should I receive an email or be forwarded such a "DMCA" request, I will post a copy (with names and personal details expunged of course) for transparency in-thread after removing the offending content.

>>363 What's this about Kiara? >>1513 Alas. I don't know much about VShojo other than pink cat bad. Is there more?
>>1533 Kiara had a habit of being outspoken about BLM and other such activism while in character. Many found that, coupled with some other early behaviour, contrary to what they expected from Hololive. VShojo is mostly known for bringing American camgirls to virtual living, since a good percentage of their original batch of talent had that background, as well as being the home of PINK CAT BAD. If you know what to look for you can take a sniff of their business relationships and decide whether you find them savoury or not. My personal impression is that most of their talent is a bit mediocre and quite hard to like. The mystery is why a powerhouse like Kson would need or want to join up with them, or indeed with any agency like them, in the first place.
Pippa has released a video where she mentions that Japan is implementing a system where VTubers and manga artists will only have "verified" invoices if they use their real names and they don't have regards to privacy, however /a/ mentions that this regulation is applied on a case-by-case basis. How much of this is true?
>>1538 I looked into it a little. It has to do with a new law that requires all businesses (including freelancers and other traders who do business under their own names, which includes vtubers and manga artists who are usually sole traders rather than employees in a legal sense) who issue invoices to register those invoices with the Financial Directorate before they’re sent. This means that the tax authorities gain real-time logging of transactions, among other advantages for the government. When an invoice’s particulars are registered, the Directorate returns a QR code containing a signature or link that “verifies” the invoice for the customer receiving the invoice to check. If invoices are not verified in this way, the law makes it much harder for the customer to claim certain parts against tax (e.g. being able to “pass on” sales tax/VAT, which becomes mandatory for even small freelancers to charge where before there was a minimum revenue threshold), so it is expected that businesses will demand verified invoices or risk suffering financial and compliance disadvantages. Of course, in order to issue verified invoices, the traders concerned (which generally includes vtubers, manga artists etc. who in a legal sense operate as sole traders providing services under performance contracts) must be verifiable as well. In this case, that means being exposed in a publicly-searchable database. Apparently the Ministry of Finance chose real names as the method of verification because >The Ministry of Finance is reportedly not considering countermeasures for privacy-related issues, responding that it did not believe that listing a person's real name is "highly risky personal information." According to a representative, the individual's real name was chosen over addresses or telephone numbers as a point of identity verification for this reason. So while it’s “optional” in the sense that you can send non-verified invoices that include 10% VAT that your client won’t be able to deduct from the VAT they collect, in reality that will impose a significant financial burden that is expected to starve out any room to opt out. https://www.pwc.com/sk/en/tax-news/e-invoicing-implementation.html https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2022-09-13/manga-artists-vtubers-fear-japan-new-invoice-system-invites-loss-of-privacy/.189600
>>1539 I should also mention that this sort of thing is very unusual for Japan, which tends to come down very heavily in favour of preserving individual privacy. The situation faced by the pseudonym-heavy parts of the creative industries are a special situation where tax/commercial transparency law and individual rights come into conflict.

>>1491 Nene will have the last laugh when the ones who kept her numbers down are on fire. Both internally and in the country across the sea. It's pretty amazing the things Nene and Lamy had to put up with. Most VTubers would have quit in their positions with that level of harassment from their own staff, but the two pushed on and kept firing managers until the problem was solved once and for all!
>>1493 Nene and Lamy were harassed by their own staff? I know that happened to Mel but I never heard about it happening to anyone else.
>>1496 They pretty much got the nijisanji treatment (Nene for Chinese reasons Lamy because she finally lost it and demanded Cover fire her manager... Six times). >>1491 It's pretty good numbers all things considered since even some of her senpais have fewer viewers.
