The world of Vtubers continues to expand, however, this expansion can be given thanks to one company. Despite what many think, Hololive is not the main company responsible for the Vtubers boom between 2020 and 2022. Nijisanji is currently the biggest talent company in Vtubers around the world and continues to grow in number, profit and also in number of subscribers of the various active channels of its collaborators. There are currently over 10 Vtubers around the world and at least 200 or more of these are part of Nijisanji.
This company has an impressive track record, having started its activity just before Hololive and expanding to other countries outside of Japan even as Hololive. Therefore, we can say that its rapid growth is impressive, but already expected due to the investment in talent that does not become exclusive to countries like Japan, the United States and Canada, but also investing in other countries in Asia as a whole.
Therefore, we will cite the top ten talents of this agency in this article. We will talk a little about their performance, their appearance, the content they produce, in addition to mentioning the number of subscribers they currently have. Unlike Hololive, Nijisanji doesn't have a strong preference for female members only, so there are several men at the top of this list.
What is the origin of Nijisanji?
This agency was born in May 2018 as a way to revolutionize the Vtubers market. As we already know, Kizuna Ai was the first Vtuber to operate in this market that really exploded in 2016. Despite the fact that virtual avatars were used long before that, it was only with her and her comedy-oriented videos that the public really began to pay attention to these virtual content creators. Two years after the Kizuna Ai explosion, Nijisanji created the concept of the first major talent agency for Vtubers.
The concept aims to bring something professional to this business, something that has salary, benefits and also helps with equipment and models made by artists hired by the company. In addition, the project aims to be multimedia, offering videos, live streams and even online shows and also songs with full albums of its stars who sing and dance in a virtual environment. However, unlike Kizuna Ai, Nijisanji and his Vtubers have one big difference.
The biggest difference from the content produced by Vtubers from this agency is the lack of a script. They were the first company that really bet on a natural content, without a script, acting 100% of the time and a planned content. Everything that is seen during the streams of the virtual stars is something natural, simply a virtual streamer making their content freely and having fun with their audience. With that concept, Nijisanji went very far and continues to grow to this day. This is the same concept that Hololive uses, however, the company was only created in May 2018, unlike Nijisanji, who was born in February of the same year.
