VShojo star Ironmouse has been entertaining fans with her subathon for almost a month. However, that hasn’t stopped Twitch critics from claiming their content is “boring”. The VTuber said it’s not for everyone but wants fans to realize why he started streaming in the first place.
Ironmouse’s Twitch Subathon continues to break Twitch records. The VTuber star – now the third most subscribed channel in the history of the platform – has been live for 29 straight days as part of the marathon streams trend.
Their rise to prominence has opened viewers’ eyes to the power of VTubers and the growth of the community. However, it also draws criticism from pundits who believe she is not an enjoyable streamer or her streams lack planned content.
However, the VShojo member doesn’t care at all. She’s admitted her shortcomings, but wants those same critics to see the reason she came to streaming.
“I know there have been complaints. I’ve seen some complaints about my subathon, complaints about my content, and things like that. I’ve never really been the type to plan a lot of shit, it’s never been me,” she explained.
“For me, streaming is an escape. I just wanted to have an environment where we could all feel like we could hang out and have fun together, so sorry if I’m not that super-produced, super-entertaining, amazing streamer.”
“I know some people have commented on it saying it’s not entertaining and you know it’s okay. You can have your opinion, but that’s not why I stream. I stream because I want to hang out with people, have a good time, and laugh. I want to create memories with people.”
However, the Subathon taught Ironmouse a few things about streaming. She smashes those records like the Koolaid Man and has no intention of stopping after the timer hits zero.
Instead, she’ll take some of the advice on board – without losing sight of her own unique personality.
“I’m slowly learning how to plan because I feel like it’s safe to plan now. I’ve always felt that something could go wrong at any moment because of my health, but lately I’ve felt more confident about making plans. Sometimes I keep them pretty vague, but I feel like I can finally stick to things and do incredible things,” she added.
“I never expected to reach any of the milestones I’ve reached. I’m shocked at 1 million [followers], with the other things too. To make it number three [all-time subs] is crazy to me. I am honored to be there.”
From day 28 to 29 a lot of things happened that I never thought possible. Thank you to everyone who has accompanied me on this journey so far.

Ironmouse now has a new goal in mind, which is to reach a month in her subathon – the same duration Ludwig reached before he unplugged the original subathon. After that, though, she’ll be taking a well-deserved break from Twitch to soak up all the memories.
“I didn’t really plan anything. I really don’t know what to do other than expressing my extreme gratitude and telling people how grateful I am,” she said.
“The fact that anyone would want to spend time with me at all surprises me. I don’t feel like a very interesting person, I feel relatively boring and there are a lot more people who are a lot more entertaining with me.
“I will never forget this month in my life. I will take those memories with me to my grave.”
