Tag type: Character
An AI that manifests itself as a brown haired teen girl with a heart shaped hair ribbon. Her name is a pun on A.I. and the Japanese/Chinese word for love. She is the mascot of AI Channel and is a 'Virtual Youtuber,' meaning she does similar things as real human Youtubers (uploading vlogs, Q/As, doing video game playthroughs), but the difference is she is an anime-esque character created by Project A.I., which consists of Morikura Yen (森倉円), Tomitake (トミタケ) and Tda. The channel made its debut on November 29, 2016, and became immensely popular with her videos being translated into many languages with her success paving the way for more 3D Virtual Youtubers to rise such as Mirai Akari and Kaguya Luna, and launching the Virtual Youtuber genre. Her success has even led to characters from franchises that predate the Virtual Youtuber genre such as Hello Kitty to try their hand at the format. She has two channels, the regular A.I. Channel and a channel devoted to video game playthroughs. Her popularity grew to the point that she even became the star of a 2018 Japanese variety TV program called Kizuna AI's Beat Scramble, something that is exceptional for a youtuber let alone a virtual one. She also became a playable character in the smartphone game Dolls Order.
Ai is a cheerful and energetic girl/ advanced AI program who resides inside an all white room. As an AI program, she can't leave said room, but she maintains a mostly positive and upbeat attitude. However, said positivity slips whenever she plays a horror game as she is easily frightened. She can also occasionally grow overconfident only to be comically proven wrong shortly afterwards. Although she has a seemingly innocent personality and demeanor, she can act perverted when other attractive girls are involved.
She is voiced by a human voice actress, but her identity as well as many aspects of the channel's production process have yet to be revealed. Kizuna herself is treated and promoted as if she were a real person on live show appearances, interviews, etc. She has also branched out into voice acting, making her voice acting debut in the anime Mahou_Shoujo_Site as Hachi. In her voice roles, she is credited as Kizuna Ai and not by the actual voice actress that plays her.
She is also known for her close relationship with fellow Virtual Youtuber Kaguya Luna whose videos she has praised. The two of them have collaborated on multiple special videos together.
