After a two-month hiatus, Hololive VTuber Gawr Gura has finally returned to YouTube streaming for the first time since last year. On Saturday, February 11, the long-missed star streamer launched a Just Chatting stream.
The shark girl spared no time, locking in her return for Saturday and going live the very same day, generating lots of interest. The broadcast attracted over 44,000 viewers.
Gura went on hiatus on December 22, when Hololive Productions announced that the star streamer would take a vacation from streaming for health reasons.
On January 25, she announced her intention to resume YouTube streaming, although at the time she only said "before Valentine's Day," without confirming any specific date.
"I've forgotten how to do this," said the VTuber at the start of the broadcast: "I'm not sure if it's my espresso that's making me shake, or if it's just shaky because I'm nervous."
She went into a tangent, referring to the availability of coffee in Japan, noting that it was available at vending machines and convenience stores. “It's very easy [to] access and it's very dangerous. My entire kitchen counter is espresso.”
Gura resurfaced in top shape after confirming that she was in Japan, and spent the rest of the stream recreating travel stories, including meeting her Hololive Japan counterparts, spending time with other English talents, and visiting the Hololive studios.
Gura is expected to return to her usual YouTube schedule in Dot Esports.
