Well, hell. If you thought that you don't have enough time for the VTuber rabbit hole... holoEN is open for their second round of auditions.
According to the post in the official subreddit, gender is irrelevant... so this might be a try to set up an English branch for Holostars. Obviously, applicants are required to speak English, and the ability to speak Japanese is a plus.
Considering the success of holoEN gen 1, they're definitely striking while the iron is hot.

So, hololive's Coco will soon reach that 1 million milestone.
Just barely a day ago, due to things that may be related to things in a political nature and thus as a mod I will not elaborate further in this thread (and as a mod I will remove posts here discussing it in this thread), during a stream Coco breaks down in tears which led to roommate and fellow Hololive Kanata to come in during the stream and comfort her. Later on she tweets that she's all right and sends love to her audience.
Not gonna lie, I do feel anger at the pettiness of some people, but stooping down to their level ain't the thing I feel. Block, ignore, report, as they say. If you're angry, let that be a push for support towards Coco, as she soon hits that big 1 million sub milestone.
Be a homie like Kanata. Don't add more hate, that just adds more hate. Support, be there and share the love.

Haachama is now trying to audition for HololiveEN Gen 2(makes sense, she is already friends with all the HololiveEn Gen 1 girls, did several collabs with them, and she has unquestionably done enough to show off her character(that's part of the audition), and she has her "cooking skills" as an alternative thing to just the gaming and super chat streams.
Koda's Favorite Fall 2016 Anime Openings and Endings
An official web manga for the project has also been announced, to be illustrated by Mizuryuu Kei. NSFW warning: artist draws quite a bit of NSFW.
Well... so much for that. Yesterday, Mizuryu Kei has announced that he's no longer involved. Most of his tweets have been deleted, but more or less he won't be working on the web manga for Hololive alternative, though apparently the web manga will still be happening.
Alas, his cover of Marine's original song Ahoy he removed due to this. That was a fun cover.
In other sad news, Jitome Monoe of indy group VOMS has been fired. No information as to why. VOMS is a trio of VTubers, perhaps the most known in the English speaking fanbase is Pikamee.
In less controversial, but still sad news, HoloEN's Kiara is about to leave Japan to return to her home country. That doesn't mean that she's halting her VTuber activities aside from a possible lack of activity from moving, but that Takamori collab was sad.
Also other sad news, Hololive's Amane Kanata recently announced that her usual Monday singing streams will be halted. Due to her medical condition which seems to be Meniere's disease which will cause deafness, she has been told to take it easy with her singing. That stings.
So this was just announced: Hololive DLC is coming to Disgaia 6.
Hopefully the version coming to the west this summer will also have it.
Well, hell, that's neat. Never purchased anything past the PS2 and PSP, so I never got to play the Disgaea games past 2 and the Prinny games, but that's good for 'em. Console-wise, I guess that's a big step up in terms of collab after the mobile game Azur Lane (got the all the hololive ships in AL... alas, doubtful that there'll be a second collab with the game on that).
So, might as well ask. As they're the most accessible due to language, who's y'allalls your favorite holoEN member so far?
I mostly only watch the weird trimmed down videos, cause I don't have the time to sit and watch hours long streams... But I like them all, they all seem to be pretty cool people and their antics are certainly funny and can cheer one up.
I guess if I had to choose, I would have to say Ina is probably my favorite - she is the only one who's live streams I actually watch (Her drawing ones). I do wish she would vary up the BG music a bit, cause after awhile you feel like you are going insane! It is nice though cause you can just throw it on in the BG and check in every once and awhile and note her progress! If I had half the talent she has in that department I'd be someone. lolol.

That is a tough choice because all of the Hololive EN talent have a lot of great qualities and quirks that make them easy to like.
Mori has the best original songs of the bunch, "Off With Their Heads" and "Excuse My Rudeness But Could You Please RIP" are absolute bangers.
Kiara's bubbly personality is really infectious which makes her streams are fun to watch. Plus she's pretty good in the music department too.
Gura is just plain adorkable and witty and is pretty great at throwing out one liners and comebacks.
Watson as well also has great comedic timing and is really good at voices and sound effects (I can honestly see her getting some regular animated series voice work in the future if she wants go down that path.)
And Ina has great art skills and her drawing streams are fun to watch.
So yeah I'm going to make the safe choice and say They're all winners in my eyes (Until Gen 2 hits the scene that is.)

As for me, despite starting this topic to begin with, will cop out and say that I can't rank them as well.
Mori has great songs, and out of them Live Again is my favorite due to it being chill yet at the same time bittersweet. And she's a dork outside of those songs. Trying to figure out how a kazoo works, or doing her sheriff accent on Papers Please.
Kiara can be cute, and really pervy, truly the bottom-left of the chart. Her regular thing of chatting with the holoJP members is also a great way to get to know more of the JP crew.
Ina's cute and probably the most level-headed out of the five, but is still silly enough. Plus, ya guys know that I get hooked on Lovecraft references. Plus there's the Ina puns. Who doesn't like Ina puns?
Gooruh is cute. Is all. The attention (or specifically, the lack thereof) she has in games is endearing.
And Ame's gremlin noises is more than enough. I love her movie watchalongs. I'm just waiting for her to watch Kung-fu Panda 2, and no lie that's one of my favorite movies.
Design-wise, it's either Ina or Mori for me.
And might as well, here's Ame's Pop on Rocks remix again. Props to the guy who made the remix.
