Popular VTuber “IRyS” was in the midst of a successful subscriber target stream when it suddenly lost hundreds of subscribers — but it didn’t let the shocking drop get the better of it.
Subscriptions are the bread and butter of streamers. Fans pay a certain amount of money monthly to get perks from their favorite broadcasters, which is common on sites like Twitch and YouTube.
Many streamers also orchestrate “subathons” — a practice where streamers put time into their shows for each sub won, sometimes resulting in streams that last for months.
However, other streamers prefer less intensive methods to encourage their viewers to subscribe, such as: B. the popular VTuber IryS.
IRyS is a virtual YouTuber who uses an anime avatar to represent herself instead of showing her face on camera.
Signed to one of the largest VTuber agencies in the industry, IRyS’ official title is VSinger. She is an English speaking streamer with over 802,000 subscribers who specializes in creating original songs, games and karaoke.
IRYS was stunned after losing 500 subscribers to a sudden drop in sub-goal
However, she fell well below the 802,000 mark on her March 28 karaoke show when she vowed to sing for her fans until she reached 800,000 subscribers.
Initially, she topped 800,000 in just 15 minutes of streaming and decided to keep singing to see how far she could get… but a glitch in the YouTube system suddenly dropped her to 799,818 subscribers out of nowhere.

Luckily, IRyS took the sudden drop with grace and managed to find the humor after seemingly achieving her goal, although she was definitely surprised.
“Okay, that happens a lot on YouTube,” she explained. “Two minutes ago I was still at 800,300. Now we are at 799,818. So we’re not 800k anymore! Let’s go!”
“Yeah, YouTube does that a lot,” she continued. “I noticed that, but I didn’t expect it to happen in the middle, okay? I suddenly lost 500! Let’s go!”
IryS is just the latest VTuber to surpass subscriber goals; Recently, VTuber Mori Calliope reached 2 million subscribers on the platform in just over two years, marking another massive win for the burgeoning online genre.
