Vtubers are quickly growing in popularity and I believe they will make up a big part of our future.
The vtuber trend is very exciting and if you’re looking to get into these types of Twitch streamers, this is the article for you.
In this article I will cover the top 5 Twitch Vtubers you should be watching in 2021.
But first, let’s talk about the term vtuber and what exactly it means.
What is a Twitch Vtuber?
Vtuber or Virtual YouTuber is a content creator who uses a virtual character that mimics their real-life movements.
The term first originated in Japan where Japanese content creators would use anime-inspired avatars instead of their own faces.
The concept quickly picked up and eventually, Twitch streamers started picking up the trend.
According to Wikipedia, there are currently more than 10,000 active vtubers!
The Vtuber trend opens up a whole new world for content creators as entertainers are no longer bound and limited to their physical appearance when appearing on camera. They can be whichever gender they want to be, they can modify their body-type, they can become anything they want and assume an alternate identity.
Many vtubers don’t reveal their real identities and the beauty of this trend is that you don’t have to!
While the vtubers remain very niche, I expect it to pick up a lot in the next couple of years.
For example, popular Twitch streamer LilyPichu has picked up a vtuber avatar when she doesn’t feel like showing her face on stream.
Top 5 Vtubers on Twitch in 2021
CodeMiko is probably the biggest VTuber on Twitch at this point. She has seen rapid growth recently and absolutely deserves the top spot on the list due to the massive effort put into creating this Vtuber by ‘the technician’, the real person controlling her.
The technician, who’s real name is unknown, developed CodeMiko entirely herself.
CodeMiko is a full-body vtuber with an interactive background (she can even break things!). It’s super impressive and exciting to see how much work was put into CodeMiko.
She’s even designed to be ‘Quasi-Interactive’ which basically means that her viewers can control her appearance. For example, during every stream, she is seen wearing a crop top that continuously displays words from her chat.
CodeMiko’s technician often does IRL streams as well which can be shocking as she switches from the ‘dumbed-down’ vtuber to the intelligent technician.
CodeMiko isn’t your typical vtuber and if you’re into wholesome anime waifu’s you should probably skip to the next streamer on this list but she’s definitely very interesting and worth checking out!
Hi there, I’m Miko! I am a bit glitchy but wholesome! I’m a game character who failed pretty much due to my glitch. My glitch is a corruption in my file and it completely changes my personality. Don’t listen to anything my glitch says.CodeMiko Twitch bio
