C14: Thoughts and Impressions Episode
Right after Yuka Shirahime, a.k.a Yuki, ended her stream, two people were close to knocking on Death’s door.
These two have an unconcealable presence no matter how hard they try during the stream: Yuru Kakizaki and Fuwari Ukigumo.
—Kaoru Yusa’s POV—
I’m in a pinch right now.
The adorable boy I secretly like is Yuki Himemura.
He’s the person behind my favorite VTuber, Yuka Shirahime, but he has an appearance and voice unlike a guy’s, and I was completely captivated by his charm.
Then, he suddenly used a binaural microphone and said to Fuwari Ukigumo and me…
[Thanks for playing with me today, onee-chans.♪I love you. ♪]
I couldn’t help but turn into a crazy otaku who wouldn’t stop obsessing over her idol and say, “What do you mean you love me? That’s my line!”
As for the dilemma I’ve gotten myself into…
“My nose won’t stop bleeding…”
That’s right, my nosebleed won’t stop.
I’m currently looking down and holding the bridge of my nose.
By the time I noticed, the stream had ended.
“Tohday’s sthream was khwite suhmething again…” I mutter in a nasal voice.
After about five minutes, my nosebleed subsided, and I was able to talk a little, so I headed to Yura’s room.
“Yura, wake up…!”
Yura is curled up on the desk, trembling.
“W-What’s wrong, Yura?!”
Yura turns to me, shaking like a newborn fawn.
“Yuki-kun is crazy… That was more than I imagined…”
I understood everything.
Yura is probably in the same situation as me five minutes ago.
“Saying onee-chan with a binaural mic is cheating… I don’t think there’s anyone who can endure that.”
Yuka-chan has her way of saying onee-chan that doesn’t feel like she’s a try-hard but like she’s real family.
But because of that, it puts a huge strain on my heart…
“I think so too.”
I couldn’t help but agree.
“Oh yeah, what did you need, onee-chan?”
“Whoops, I almost forgot.”
I may have to find a way to prevent myself from becoming a complete scatterbrain whenever my mind becomes preoccupied with thoughts of Yuki-kun.
“It was just to confirm if the person from the previous cosplay outfit contacted us.”
“Oh yeah, I think we got an email during lunch. Let me check real quick.”
I reassured her with a “Sure” and waited there.
“Oh, here it is. Ah…I knew it.”
“What’s it say?”
“They want to take measurements for the outfit, so they’re asking if we can come in soon for that.”
“Hmm, that might be tough…”
It was a reply from the company that will be making the cosplay outfit that we designed for Yuki-kun. They said they could finish it in just over two weeks, but it’ll be tough if we don’t come in by next weekend.
They also mentioned that the deadline for the design is this weekend.
“But we can’t just give up, right?”
“Can’t we do something, onee-chan?”
“I’ll try sending Yuki-kun an email, even if it’s a long shot.
I hope he’s available next week.”
And so, I sent an email to Yuki-kun.
—Hana Utsurogi’s POV—
“What’s with that girl…” I spontaneously mutter to myself.
“I’ve collaborated with other talents in the same agency, but something about her voice grips your heart tight…”
I believe that one’s voice has some sort of power.
And her voice has an inexplicable power that captures your heart.
“I never thought being called ‘onee-chan’ could make my heart race so much…”
Me and my colleagues at the agency have called each other such at times.
Whenever those conversations happened, people would say things like tee-tee or toutoi, but never once did my chest tighten like this.
“This must be her power.”
I realized how vast the world is.
“But why is it that I lose my filter around her? It’s never happened to me before…”
The mystery only deepened.

436: Name: Anon Onee-chan

437: Name: Anon Onii-chan
438: Name: Anon Onii-chan
439: Name: Anon Onee-chan
Anyway, I pushed through and posted the clip on Tweeter.
If it goes viral, maybe Yuka-chan will become famous.
440: Name: Anon Onii-chan
Honestly, even now, she’s going strong as an indie.
441: Name: Anon Onii-chan
Didn’t think collabing with Fuwa-chan was gonna happen, man
442: Name: Anon Onii-chan
i was surprised too.
fuwa-chan really likes them small huh
443: Name: Anon Onee-chan
But wasn’t her energy not as high when she reacted to the loli VTubers at Imananji?
444: Name: Anon Onii-chan
oh yeah, good point
445: Name: Anon Onii-chan

446: Name: Anon Onee-chan
She did say they met in real life by chance,
so maybe Fuwa-chan liked her looks.
447: Name: Anon Onee-chan

448: Name: Anon Onee-chan
I heard she’s going to Comiket.
