Hololive EN star Mori Calliope has told fans despite her removal, Uruha Rushia will not be a “taboo” subject to bring up. Calli has asked fans to stop “this strange notion going around” forgetting her legacy, saying she will “remember” Rushia forever.
Uruha Rushia’s sudden termination of contract with Hololive on February 24 has been a hot topic in VTuber circles for the past week.
The star, who has 1.6 million YouTube subscribers, was fired by Cover Corp for breaching her contract “by leaking information she obtained from the company… and causing the company to suffer reputational damage”.
Many Hololive stars have spoken out about Rushia’s passing, including her comrades as well as first generation veteran Shirakami Fubuki.
Mori Calliope also wanted to clear the air, telling fans that despite her sudden departure, Rushia didn’t suddenly become an unspoken “taboo” topic on stream.
“I think I will talk quite openly about this as well as it has been a while,” she began. her February 26 stream with. “You all are well aware of the situation that happened to my senpai, Rushia, and her contract was terminated.
“I apologize if my reaction on Twitter was a bit jarring — I was shocked when I heard about this.”
Calli Originally tweeted on February 24th, just minutes after the announcement: “I don’t even know what to say right now. I’m canceling my live stream tomorrow, I’m feeling nauseous. Take care of yourself.”
While she stressed that it was a “very serious situation,” Calli reassured fans that she would miss Rushia’s legacy. She also doesn’t want to tiptoe around the subject — as long as you don’t ask her why she’s leaving, she’ll keep talking about Rushia.
“I will miss my friend dearly, and I still hold her in my heart as a member of Hololive Fantasy and HOLODEATH. [the trio of Calli, Rushia, and Kureiji Ollie]. I will always love Rushia-senpai,” she explained.
The relevant segment begins at 6:21 below.
“The main point I wanted to drive home was that her name is not taboo here. You can talk about it. If you see anything like ‘recruiter’ or ‘beautiful woman with huge boing-boings’, you’re welcome to talk about it!
“I don’t want this weird notion going around that we’ll forget because I’m not.”
While HOLODEATH may now be just a duo, Rushia’s legacy in that small group — as well as Hololive — will endure long after her departure, and Calli wants to cherish that.
“In the way that I always remember those who have come before, I will continue to do that for her as well.”
