HOLOSTARS is coming to English audiences with Hololive revealing a new all-male VTuber group called TEMPUS. Four stars will be part of the initial launch with debuts expected later in July 2022.

Hololive might be known for all of their female idols, but now they’re expanding their HOLOSTARS group to bring more male VTubers to the English audience.

The agency has revealed a new group called HoloTEMPUS, their first HOLOSTARS EN group. The quartet was first teased on July 14 in a short one-minute video that included four male silhouettes in the closing screen.

On July 17 their identities were revealed as: Axel Syrios, Regis Altare, Noir Vesper, and Magni Dezmond. The group’s theme is all about adventuring, having formed a guild together at a pub.

“The name symbolizes a turning point in the founding members’ lives, as they look to resist the status quo and seek to change the world as adventurers,” the announcement reads.

HOLOSTARS describes itself as “an all-male VTuber group under Hololive that began in June 2019.” Their talents “stream Let’s Plays, produce cover song videos, as well as create original music on YouTube.”

Before now, the only HOLOSTARS members were all part of the Japanese side of the agency with four generational releases. 13 talents are still active, with three talents graduating in the years since the male expansion.

The biggest member of HOLOSTARS is second-generation talent Yukoku Roberu, who boasts 261,000 subscribers on YouTube. Rikkaroid and Astel Leda are the only others with more than 200,000.

This is compared to NIJISANJI who have found more success with male VTubers. Kuzuha, their second biggest streamer, has 1.34 million YouTube subscribers. Vox Akuma is their biggest English male VTuber with just under 1 million.

The four TEMPUS members are all set to make their debuts on July 22 and 23, 2022, starting with the founder of the guild Regis Altare at 6PM PT on Friday.
