近年、海外へも徐々に広がりつつあるバーチャルYouTuber文化。今回、その中でもロシアで活動を行うEarth-Chan (地球ちゃん /Земля-Чан / Zemlya-Chan)についてフォーカスしようと思う。

Recently, Virtual YouTuber culture is gradually expanding overseas. This time, I would like to focus on Earth-Chan (Earth-Chan / лемля-Чан / Zemlya-Chan) which is active in Russia.


元々、Earth-Chanとは、ゲーム実況者YouTuberのTrinimmortalが2017年にTwitterで発したある投稿をきっかけに発生したインターネットミーム。そこから、地球を美少女化した沢山のファンアートが書かれると共に、2018年1月にVTuberとしてのEarth-Chanが爆誕した。ロシア初のVTuberと自称しており(真偽は不明)、現在YouTube CH登録者数は4万6千超え。ロシアのVTuberの中でもトップクラスの登録者を誇っている。

Originally, Earth-Chan is an Internet meme that was triggered by a post posted on Twitter in 2017 by Trinimmortal, let’s player & YouTuber. From there, many people made a lot of fan arts that made the earth a beauty girl, and in January 2018, Earth-Chan as a VTuber was born. She says she is Russian first VTuber (true or false…unknown), and currently has more than 46,000 YouTube CH subscribers. She is one of the top names among Russian VTuber.



Earth-Chan’s movie styles are mainly about studying and trying to do human cultures by herself, and Japanese animation is often taken as a subject. Occasionally, there are charming mistakes that extremity can be visible in her own words and actions.



This time, TOPPA!! tried to do her first solo interview about her trigger to start working as VTuber, thinking about people, attitude toward working as VTuber, Russian cultures and future goals.

Earth-Chan : う〜んとねぇ……あんまり面白い答えはパッと思いつかないや。普通の人間くん達と同じ事……YouTubeを見たり……何かを読んだり……寝たり(笑)。
