Entertainment planning company Isaribi revealed on Wednesday the visual and story for Kizuna no Allelethe upcoming anime project for virtual YouTuber (VTuber) Ai Kizuna.
The anime features the tagline, “Your radiance is a bridge that connects everyone.” Isaribi describes the story:
I want to be connected with everyone…
“Miracle” is a girl who has been dreaming of becoming a virtual artist just like Ai Kizuna.
“I will become the person I wish and will deliver a dream and a hope to the world!”
“Miracle” keeps her strong will and starts moving towards a higher place with her friends who share the same passion. Her story begins now…
The television anime will premiere in 2023.
The Ai Kizuna YouTube channel “A.I.Channel” first launched in 2016. Since then, she has become the world's most iconic virtual YouTuber and was on Newsweek Japan's list of “globally respected Japanese people.” Her main channel has over 3 million subscribers, and her “A.I.Games” channel has over 1.51 million subscribers. She has since appeared in television programs and commercials, and performed as a musical artist.
In April 2020, Nozomi Kasuga signed on as an adviser at Ai Kizuna Co., Ltd. — thus formally confirming that she is the voice actress behind the character. The company was formed out of Activ8, the talent agency that managed Ai Kizuna and other virtual YouTuber talent.
Ai Kizuna voiced cameo roles in the Ingress and Magical Girl Site anime, and she also performed the theme song in the Laidbackers movie.
Ai Kizuna‘s staff billed the “Ai Kizuna The Last Live ‘hello, world 2022′” concert on February 26 as her final concert before she goes on an indefinite hiatus. The staff cited an update to “future activities with the goal of further developing Ai Kizuna” as the reason for the hiatus. The concert also unveiled Kizuna (#KZN), an original singing CeVIO AI. #KZN is “serving as a hub to connect with everyone and [support] Ai Kizuna and creators while she is asleep.” (CeVIO is a suite of software that includes voice synthesis.) Ai Kizuna‘s original character designer En Morikura designed the AI with character concept art by Keigo Inoue.
