VTubing giant COVER Corporation has opened auditions for the next generation of English-speaking virtual talent. COVER posted the official announcement on their hololive Twitter this morning along with a link to the application that has a deadline of March 26th, 2021.

The requirements to audition are similar to the English VSinger audition that occurred at the end of last year with a few key differences. The applicant must be an English speaker (with Japanese being a plus), be able to deliver content at least 3 times a week for at least one year, and have a track record of content creation. Interestingly, the press release mentions that gender is irrelevant but goes on to say that “hololive English is an all-female VTuber group.” It’s unclear what this discrepancy means although the VSinger audition also allowed all genders but with the stipulation of being able to sing in a female voice.

COVER debuted its first holoEN group half a year ago and has since gone on to become wildly successful. Three of its five members have already reached 1 million subscribers on YouTube with one of those individuals, Gawr Gura, having broken 2 million. Meanwhile, in COVER’s Japanese branch, Usada Pekora was ranked the 3rd most viewed female streamer of 2020 worldwide.

Heralding from the rustic, old town of Los Angeles, California; Matthew now resides in Boston where he diligently researches the cure for cancer. In reality, though, he just wants to play games and watch anime, and likes talking about them way too much. A Nintendo/Sony hybrid fan with a soft-spot for RPG’s, he finds little beats sinking hours into an immersive game world.
