ReGLOSS - "Shunkan Heartbeat" Official MV

ReGLOSS Debut PV


Day 1 (September 9th):
Ao.png

8pm JST/ 4am PST / 8am EST / 12pm BST
“My hobby is drawing. And my profession… is also drawing.”
A manga artist who loves solitude… or so the people around her think.
She tries to play herself off as cool and aloof, but beyond the surface she is quite the otaku.
She cares a lot about how she is perceived, which is why she is always dressed immaculately in public.
How she is at home, though… is a Pandora’s box.

8:30pm JST/ 4:30am PST / 8:30am EST / 12:30pm BST

“I’m here to take my stage!”
An aspiring musician, whose life also has ups and downs like a crescendo.
Music is always by her side.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and is capable of putting incredible amounts of effort into the things she enjoys.
On the other hand, anything she dislikes immediately puts a frown on her face, showing she still retains a childish side.
However, she can be bribed with good food…

Ichijou Ririka city.png(entrepreneur?)
9pm JST/ 5am PST / 9am EST / 1pm BST

Whatever you need, Ichijou Ririka is success, guaranteed!”
An enterprising entrepreneur on the up-and-up.
She started her company on a complete whim, but things seem to be going well so far.
She has excellent people skills and is an excellent communicator, which allows her to handle transactions with foreign companies by herself.
Her secret to success is a good night’s sleep.
Meanwhile, she has quite the unruly side when it comes to her private life, and she can be quite lacking when it comes to chores around the home.

Day 2 (September 10th):
raden.png
Juufuutei Raden seashell.png(rakugo?)
8pm JST/ 4am PST / 8am EST / 12pm BST

“Care to join me on a journey through a tale?”
A grandma’s girl who covers herself in both tradition and revolution, and sees big dreams in the rakugo world.
She loves arts and culture of all kinds—new and old, Eastern and Western.
She visits museums so often that she is left penny-pinching the rest of the time. It is most certainly not due to her frequent purchases of alcohol.
Through her encounter with rakugo, she has come to enjoy public speaking more than ever, and she is fervishly writing up her own skits.

hajime.png
Todoroki Hajime penguin.pngbolt.png️(jane of all trades?)
8:30pm JST/ 4:30am PST / 8:30am EST / 12:30pm BST

“Bam! …Wow, that actually sounds kinda badass!”
A jane-of-all-trades seeking to be the #1 badass in the universe.
Why the universe? Why “badass”? Nobody knows.
She’s the restless sort and, to no surprise, enjoys physical activities.
Also to no surprise, she’s not good with tools and equipment, meaning she’s a disaster-class in cooking.
Her trusty partner Banpen teaches her every day about how to be a badass.

I'm betting on a new branch, probably with a gimmick or two for branding

But, also, they are Gen 7 because the L in ReGloss is an upside-down 7...
:vesperfacepalm:
That makes way too much sense.
This whole song and dance really was just for Gen 7.

I'm gonna say music-centric branch, essentially INNK replacement.

About ReGLOSS
ReGLOSS is a five-member VTuber girl group consisting of Hiodoshi Ao, Otonose Kanade, Ichijou Ririka, Juufuutei Raden, and Todoroki Hajime that will debut in September 2023 as a new group "Hololive DEV_IS" under Hololive productions.

They plan to distribute and post videos on the Hololive DEV_IS channel, focusing on music activities.

About Hololive DEV_IS
Hololive DEV_IS is a VTuber group that will carry out energetic unit activities under the themes of "growth" and "challenge" beyond the framework of conventional VTubers.

From a reddit post. Not sure where they got the English translation or if they did it themselves. They're more like an Idol group focused on music + other activities? I fully expect Kiara's Idol Autism to come out and give a deeper explanation.

Also, Juufuutei with the twin tails seems like a direct Persona send-up.

All of the characters have this 2 star design piece on them. I'm not sure what stars are counted in, but I'm guessing there's a wordplay involved in that in the Japanese.



And I closed the incognito window I opened Reddit in by accident. But someone linked to this PR release. Somewhere in there it says it's a new music project under Hololive. So, I guess Azki & Irys get some friends.

Europe branch or vsingers like KAF is my guess.

For all the teeth gnashing about the marketing and it being too soon for more talents you would think Cover had a bad track record with recruiting and marketing.

This drop has put everyone into a feeding frenzy. Hope they drop lead up time and ride this wave.

I'm usually on board with flat is justice, but that's usually meant to imply there's still something...

Considering how Suisei and AZKi did in INNK and how both did afterwards... this is like telling a chuuba "Hey, here's your dream job!" and tossing her into the gas chamber right after.

New Mama art just dropped.
We get a look at Hajime's mascot.

If the closure of INNK gave birth to DEV_IS having decent talent I'd say it's a fair trade-off

So those are some weird oshi marks for some of them. Some of them make sense.
  • Ao (Kronii v3.0) has a pen because her kayfabe is that she's suppose to be a mangaka
  • Kanade (Pomu v2.0) has a keyboard and stars because she's suppose to be a musician
  • Ririka (Bae but minus the rodents) kinda makes sense too because she's suppose to be the entrepreneur and her icon is a city night with stars.
But then you have these last two
  • Raden (Ina v2.0) is suppose to enjoy rakugo but has a seashell for an icon
  • Hajime is suppose to be a jane-of-all-trades but she has a penguin and lightbolt icon (edit: Just saw her mama's art, the penguin is suppose to be her mascot)

INNK was a different company that could only manage one talent in the end and had a partnership with Hololive. Azki and Suiseis growth since joining Hololive should give you some confidence

They look pretty cool, at least. Might give it a chance to look at their debut.

Ya know, the only thing I know is that the moment we speak about these girls, some japanese fanartist is already drawing them. Either as cool as one imagine or as degenerate as possible.

Sui randomly bringing up INNK for no reason or some deeper meaning... 🤔

Also referring to this as Holos new step is weird if it's just a new gen imo

So this kinda confirms that this is just INNK 2.0 then.

It might be the combination of lessons learned from INNK and from Calli's & Suisei's label contracts.

It's also entirely possible this setup is entirely the result of the sponsorship opportunities/friction since they didn't have a ready made "idol group" and far more Japanese companies are comfortable with dealing in that manner.

Ao's mama dropping celebration illust too



"I was reminded of the time when I first joined INNK there were lots of difficulties

I'm still not sure what kind of activities the new members will do in the future but please give them your utmost support, I will be doing so as well!

Good luck on this new road Hololive"

I'd say it was much more of the similarity (whole new sub-branch) rather than direct confirmation of an INNK clone, and since the later are managed by different staff as well anyway

INNK was a project, but I'm 90% sure it was some collaboration between Holo and another nip corpo, though I'm unsure if it was Activ8 or Entum and cannot find a source though I'm sure I read that somewhere.
