Meet the first batch of Vtubers that aims to promote Filipino folklore and culture!
They’ll be heading to your screens on November 19 to 20
In recent years, more types of content have been consumed and made. Vtubers or streamers who post video game content while using anime-style characters as their avatars are one of them. Since 2010, Vtubers have been changing the landscape of online entertainment.
Although there are no limits to what a Vtuber character might be, most follow and are heavily influenced by Japanese culture.
Balangay Live stands out as they are a group made up of proudly independent Filipino Vtubers whose personas are based on creatures of local myths and legends. Apart from their usual video game streams, they all aim to spread appreciation and discussion on Filipino culture in their own ways.
