Karen's re-recorded Sister Princess song album will be available on February 12
In the latest 16th episode streamed in Japan last night, Karen (voiced by Natsuko Kuwatani) announced that Sakuya (Yui Horie) will finally make her virtual YouTuber debut on January 20, 2020. Karen started her virtual YouTube activity last September as part of the Sister Princess franchise's 20th- anniversary project, and Sakuya is the second sister joining it.
Karen announced Sakuya's participation in the 11th episode posted on December 2, 2019. However, her fans had to wait for a while because her voice cast Yui Horie was so busy on her own solo live tour that ran until December 29. And now she is finally ready to meet her fans, aka Onii-sama.
After the next 17th episode of Karen's regular program, Sakuya's five-minute short self-introduction clip will be posted on the same official YouTube channel for the anniversary project at 21:00 on January 20 (JST), which will be available for everyone. Then a 30-minute special program hosted by Karen and Sakuya will be streamed on the project site for the fan club members only (the cheapest monthly membership fee is 500 yen, the highest is 10,000 yen).
