    The five new members are Tsukumo Sana, Ceres Fauna, Ouro Kronii, Nanashi Mumei, and Hakos Baelz. This special video was released to promote Hololive English -Council- on August 1.

     

    The members’ Twitter accounts  and YouTube channels have been opened, with activities starting soon. The first YouTube stream is scheduled to start on August 22 JST in a relay format.

    A special preview video has been released to coincide with the announcement, shown in a story-based narrative for viewers to enjoy while they wait for the members’ debut streams. 

    The five members will be collaborating after their debut, so don’t miss it! 

     

     

    Members

     

    Tsukumo Sana (九十九佐命)

    A member of the Council and the Speaker of “Space,” the first concept as created by the Gods.

    After materializing on earth, Sana began searching for answers within astrology only to discover the Forbidden Truth, becoming an apostle of the Ancient Ones.

    “Space” doesn’t just refer to the universe, but all dimensions and matter to exist. It is an endless concept, one that continues to expand eternally. Because of this, many of her actions cannot be explained by humans. However, to this she replies “Humanity just isn’t ready to understand,” contrasting her childli…. youthful appearance.

    YouTube Debut Schedule:

    August 22 2021, 02:00 ~ 03:00 JST

     

     

    Ceres Fauna (セレス・ファウナ)

    A member of the Council and the Keeper of “Nature,” the second concept as created by the Gods.

    She has manifested on earth as a Druid in order to save nature. 

    Fauna has Kirin blood flowing through her veins and horns. However, those horns are not those of a deer, instead made from the branches of a certain tree.

    “Nature” refers to all organic matter on the planet excluding mankind.

    It is told that her whispers, as Mother Nature, are filled with healing properties. Whether or not that is true is something only those who have heard them can tell. 

    While she is usually friendly, calm, and a little mischievous, those who oppose her will feel the wrath of nature.

    Ouro Kronii (オーロ・クロニー)

    A member of the Council and the Warden of “Time,” the concept as created by the Gods.

    To humans, this is the most distorted concept. It was by chance that she picked up the blade, but she found herself enjoying it. Humans cannot escape “Time” and very few humans even wish to be released from her prison. 

    Originally, the role of “Time” was to act as a cog between the other concepts. However, eventually, humans gave “Time” its own meanings with the sunrise and sunset, becoming trapped and empowering her.

    While her quiet and cool personality is unchanged, she has since become prideful and sadistic over her prisoners.

    Nanashi Mumei (七詩ムメイ)

    A member of the Council and the Guardian of “Civilization,” a concept created by humanity.

    She is a wise and skilled traveller who has seen, heard, and experienced so much that she wound up forgetting even her own name. 

    She was born from human will, separating her from the council members and other life forms.

    “Civilization” is a man-made lifeform that demands wisdom. As Mumei was not created by the Gods, she was free to choose her own form, basing her appearance on the owl, an animal humans feel represents knowledge.

    She is kind, wise, and hardworking, although her aura is said to be mysterious and somewhat pitiful. She claims to have felt lonely throughout her many years of travelling, making herself a friend out of the material that drove the development of civilization and mankind – paper.

    “It may fade and tear, but a friend is always a friend…”

    YouTube Debut Schedule:  

    August 22 2021, 06:30 ~ 07:30 (JST)

     

     

     

     

    Hakos Baelz(ハコス・ベールズ)

    A member of the Council and the Guardian of “Chaos,” a concept created by the world.

    She is the chairperson of the Council as commanded by the Gods, based on liberalism. However, both Baelz and the other members are truly convinced of her position, only obeying the Gods’ will. You mustn’t underestimate her mouse-like appearance, as mice are in fact known as harbingers of “Chaos.” 

    “Chaos” can be wild, fortunus, or even represent freedom.

    With her dazzling grin, Baelz is never one to sit still, instead running around freely. She disagrees that rules are everything, descending upon the world with the intention of breaking them all.

    She takes greatest pleasure in watching the aftermath of her destruction, often choosing to observe from the outside.
