With Pewdiepie becoming a Vtuber and the #VTuberUprising happening, I think this MIGHT herald the beginning of the next phase of Vtubing.

Some Jusagi thoughts and predictions
This is the Gartner Hype Cycle and every new and exciting technology goes through this. There's a ton of hype for something, then there's a crash as the bubble bursts.

For Vtubing, I think that's going to happen when more big names (like Pewds) join the Vtubing trend.
There'll be a huge groundswell of mainstream attention to Vtubing (like... actually mainstream, not just us weebs) where there'll be THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of new Vtubers trying to hit it big. That'll be the inflated expectation point.
Companies will try to jump in too to make some money. Investors will swoop in and snatch up promising small indies (or perhaps make their own indie Vtubers).

And then it'll stop.
The average person will get sick of Vtubers eventually, like they get sick of every other technology fad. The next big thing will come and people will lose interest. A wave of disillusionment will hit brand new Vtubers as they realize it's REALLY REALLY HARD to become successful
At this point, only those who are really serious about Vtubing will stick around. The audience of people who watch Vtubers will shrink dramatically and it'll be tough for a while. However, I think BIG names like Hololive and Vshojo will still be very popular.
After a while, things will stabilize and even though indie Vtubers won't be the next hottest thing, it'll still be fairly popular with a niche audience.
Can I predict when this will all happen? No idea.
Will it happen? Probably. I love Vtubing but I know it's a bubble just waiting to burst.

Don't worry though, the JCC is in this for the long haul!

Do you think the #VtuberUprising is a sign we're becoming more mainstream?

Just some additional thoughts to #VTuberUprising after speaking with a bunch of people!

Is this the end of Vtubing? No. Is this the end of your channel? Absolutely not.

I expect ALL Vtubers will get a boost in popularity when this hits, but you have to be ready for it.
What does that mean? Having a memorable brand/design. Having content ready to go. Building connections. These things will help you get noticed!

Is this a guarantee for success?


Nothing is a guarantee for success, but you have to do what you can to maximize your chances!
Think about it. Pretty soon bigger non-vtuber channels will probably start making TOP 5 INDIE VTUBERS videos as they become popular!

Heck, these channels already exist, but I expect them to get much more popular!
