Virtual Cinderella Project announced the name of its virtual idol unit, “NHOT BOT,” at the special live-streaming presentation yesterday on April 7. The unit name means “A truly new and precious existence that is neither animated nor human. It’s not a BOT at all, but a truly new and precious existence.” And the unit’s tagline is: “Change your life, move the clock.”
The “Virtual Cinderella Project” is a joint project by bilibili and Sony Music to launch a virtual idol unit. Its first three members are Japanese VTuber Kagura Mea, Hanazono Serena, and Hiseki Erio, who are very popular in Japan and China. The three have a total of approximately two million followers on bilibili and 350,000 on YouTube.
The unit consisting of the first three and another three members selected through auditions – Amane Luna, UzuMe, and Seira Mint – will be fully supported by bilibili and Sony Music for a limited period of one year, with the aim of realizing a global “Cinderella Story” centered on Japan and China.
The unit’s first single featuring Kagura Mea, Hanazono Serena, and Hiseki Erio, “Ashita Kimi no Te wo Nigireta nara” (I wish I could hold your hand tomorrow), was released digitally today on April 8, and its music video is now streamed on the project’s official YouTube channel.
