Phase Connect terminates Vtuber Fuura Yuri’s contract after “multiple breaches”
Phase Connect has announced the termination of vtuber Fuura Yuri’s contract, with the talent being found guilty of “multiple repeated breaches” of the contract.
In April 2022, Phase Connect revealed two new vtubers would be joining the agency, Kaneko Lumi and Fuura Yuri. These two would form Phase Invaders, a unique generation consisting of talents formerly contracted under Cyberlive.
Unlike most new agency talents, Lumi and Yuri were able to keep their old character and model rather than having to start over. Although rare there are instances of this happening with the most famous being Hoshimachi Suisei of Hololive.
Yuri had been contracted under Phase Connect for just over a year but that journey has now come to an end.
