Military Virtual YouTuber: Irodori Mayoi

Since I'm deeply into Girls' Frontline, I randomly got curious if there's any Virtual YouTuber who is into Girls' Frontline or guns as well. When I searched, all of a sudden, I found a new Virtual YouTuber named Irodori Mayoi (彩 まよい). She basically explains about specific guns in her videos - in an educational way. But, she didn't do any Girls' Frontline content as of yet aside on her Twitter ...

Why RoboMaster Is Fun to Spectate

Recently, while I was browsing Twitch, I stumbled into a live competition called RoboMaster. Unlike BattleBots or other robot battle shows where they have robots physically destroy each other, RoboMaster is actually a gamified MOBA-like first person shooter that doesn't allow robots physically destroy each other. This robot competition features team versus team, multiple robot classes, leveling a...
