The VTuber agency, hololive, premiered a brand-new singer in IRyS. In fact, she is the agency’s first-ever English singer. IRyS will start her activities on July 11 and be part of a wider campaign known as Project: HOPE.
Of course, with the new VTuber, fans flocked and flooded her Twitter account which caused her account to become flagged as a bot, therefore, Twitter restricted the account due to “suspicious activity.” Her YouTube account has already surpassed 120,000 subscribers.
hololive describes IRyS as follows:
“IRyS, a half-demon, half-angel also known as a Nephilim, once brought hope to “The Paradise” during the ancient age. Her full name is ███████ Irys. This current era, riddled with despair and desperation, has brought upon her second awakening. She has arrived to deliver hope, with her feelings put into her lyrics and songs, and determination in her voice.
Though she tends to retain her Nephilim form, she is still quite young within her race. With emotion and “other factors,” it is possible that her form may lean to either side. When that occurs, she bears a brief change in her appearance.
She does not speak of the events that preceded her second awakening. She faces ever forward, perhaps because she is Hope Incarnate, though no one knows for sure. Or could it be…
‘The future is not what helps people; the future is made with our own hands.
Salvation is hypocrisy. If people know they are to be saved, they simply will not try.
From the depths of despair: a glimmer of light, the warmth of recovery.
As long as we are with hope, we live. We stand tall.'”
A Promotional Video was also released for her debut which you can check out below:
