Singing Cosplayer Hikari — who made her debut on New Year’s Day 2021, has been active in sharing videos and photos of “JAPANESE CULTURE” to the world, by cosplaying characters from anime, games, Vocaloid, etc. and singing cover songs related to those works.
She started out with the concept of “singing while cosplaying”, and she has been highly praised by fans of anime songs and Vocaloid songs all over the world; on YouTube, the channel has received a great response, with more than 6,000 subscribers in just over two months.
However, due to the difficulty in obtaining permission from the rights holders to prevent a copyright strike, she announced a change in concept from “singing while cosplaying” to “cosplaying, singing and transmitting JAPANESE CULTURE”.
In order to maintain the same production quality in the future, she decided to call for support through crowdfunding. She is inviting her fans all over the world to show their support through Kickstarter. She has prepared several rewards for her supporters on the platform.
